Final Fantasy 14 online – A new change

Ok, so this blog post was overdue for the longest time and talked about my feelings towards pso2, and I did this a lot, but it end-up being something I would not do or something else. And my blog has a lot of blog posts on this matter.

I share my thoughts, feelings, and everything with my blog. And I have been thinking about this for a while. I have given Phantasy Star Online 2 and, by proxy, New genesis for roughly two years of my life. And that is a lot to devote time to a game that may or may not be good. It is something I try not to do, given this is blind faith I place into a game.

I placed my blind faith in too many games, alright, and it is time I cut down the number of games I play anyway to have one main video game. But enough, let us get moving, shall we?

Why I’m feeling this way

One game was able to leave an impact on me that pretty much caused me to make this blog post. And I guess, technically, it is two games, but I will get into that later. The main game for the section is Final Fantasy 14 online or FF14.

Something about that game left an impact on me. And I don’t know, but it is not a fleeting feeling either. But there was another game I have been trying to keep up with for some reason, and I don’t know why I’m trying, but I’m talking about Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis.

It is funny. If I had never tried to play final fantasy 14, I think I would have been fine, but the game did something for me. I can’t say my pso2 friends feel the same way. And that’s fine, but I like this game and the style. And to play ff14 with or without friends.

And this is one game I want to devote my time to, and I need to drop these games I lost interest for. Find one game I can commit to and play at my pace, and I think this is great and something I need to do for a long time.

Too many games.

Fate grand order plans

So, I am getting close to saving the seventh singularity in fate grand order, and then next would be Solomon’s singularity from what friends say or have said. I plan to stream the fate go story until I clear the storyline, and no, I don’t mean lost belt. If I get to the lost belt, that is where my adventure will end.

Seventh singularity

And since HyperSonic7701, Mastakirby, and zombie stream fgo, there is no need for me to stream it as well. But I suppose I can stream fate go after I clear the main singularity story. I can make streaming fate go to certain events that pop up, and if I like them. I will stream fate go.

To be fair. It was all for HyperSonic7701, and I think He got an idea of my playstyle since he wanted to see how I played the game. Given Mastakirby server is somewhat full of elite players for fate go, I guess he wanted to see if I play the same as them, but I think he knows now.

The seventh singularity might be a long stream. The cutscenes I will skip some, if not all. If I feel this will be a long section. I will start streaming in the morning. If I feel it would not take too long, I will start later in the night.

If the singularity is close to being “saved” I will push forward but like always, if I’m running low on time (2:30 am), I will end it there as I have other games to play as well.

Solomon singularity

If this is not post-game, I will start this singularity, and when this is complete. Fate go will be finished for my things to stream. And I think that would be a fine way to end this mini-series.

It was fun having HyperSonic7701 there to watch. But now, he will have vods of me getting clapped to enjoy for a short while.

That’s all, and that’s the game plan.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis log 3

It’s another Phantasy star online 2 new genesis log, and I want to share updates and some old changes. And this will be a fun update with changes.

Cleared Dark Falz Rank 2

Something I was asked to join, and given I more or less was content with not clearing Dark Falz Rank 2, I was not too pressed with clearing this trigger quest since I was not that worried. But Aluria wanted me to have Dark Falz Rank 2 cleared for the sake of it. I was in no real rush.

It took me a few runs (8 runs, give or take) to get the hang of things given this trigger dark falz is one. But after learning, I was able to get by part 1 blue, part 1.5 red, and part 2 red was a bit of pain to get pass but by some luck, I was able to help the team clear.

It did feel nice to clear this trigger even though I think it is hard for the sake of being hard. And the team that helped me clear Dark Falz Rank 2: Aluria, Snowie, and DoubleDCritys. After a few failed runs, the next run was a success.

And even made good time to boot as well, and had time to spare should we need it.

DoubleDCritys gave me some rad items

My friend M0n had some LED sunglasses that caught my eye and had to get my hands on a pair but learned these were a base pso2 item and that’s when DoubleDCritys said they had a pair of LED sunglasses and they let me have them. It was a good day.

After I went to their base pso2 home to get the LED shades, I saw they had an outfit called Sakura Shinguji’s Hakama: Spring, and I was going to buy it for 40m last night since it was 4 AM and my decision-making became poor lol but DoubleDCritys came in to save the day :3

Making a second Kaizaar weapon

I made one Kaizaar weapon, and my next weapon will be Kaizaar boots. Aluria told me that the boots would be better than the Talis weapon and for a time, I believed that Talis was the better choice. After using Talis for so long, I am ready to make a different weapon.

My progress with the Kaizaar weapon has been good so far.

The only thing that is a pain is getting the cubes as that need more effort, a good party, and strong random players. Blizzardium is something I can wait for, every week 20 Blizzardium. I don’t mind at all.

I am almost done with cubes and I “might” try to farm cubes for a Kaizaar katana but I am almost done with this area. And with the rare drop rate on-going at this moment, farming cubes would be ideal since there may be more people farming ancients for cubes. And you know, strike while the iron is hot.

That’s all for these update logs. I might post another one in 2 weeks if anything good of note happens. See you then.

June update log

Time for a June update, as usual. I will list the things I did, done, or planned to do for June but they will have their section with details and such. I think having them as a list is boring.

Things I will be talking about soon or later.

WordPress, blog posts, and posts are ready to queue up. Discord, server updates, and changes. Fan game progress and showcasing. Twitch, and YouTube streaming. And other things.

Editor note: This post was made last month and most of the stuff here was changed or removed.

Things I got planned to do

Discord

Server changes

I will be getting rid of the Inactive member role cause too much work to manage members.

If I make extra changes to some things.

  1. People can join and leave whenever they like. And welcome to rejoin if you were not causing issues. You can come back anytime.
  2. If a said person leaves the server not due to being compromised.
  3. Rare roles, Tatsu server points, and score, and anything else, may or will be lost and must be earned next time.
  4. Access to private channels may be lost since discord removes you if you leave a discord server.

Phantasy star online 2: New Genesis Kvaris Impressions

It is time to be cool. New genesis dropped the new update and content. And I want to talk about it and share my thoughts on it and what have you. There is a lot of good content in this update. It has been the awaited update and content and I am just one of many who have thoughts on this update. There is a lot to talk about here.

I will start with the good things here.

The good things

Level 60 cap. You can do more damage and reach a higher level of power and farming has been made easy. Yellow triggers give you the full amount of exp and got rid of the Exp reduction which is a godsend.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis log 2

It’s time for another Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis log where I just give an update of progress in the game I have done or done with help of friends. And now with added thoughts and rants.

Day one – 05/01/22

My Cinquem Katana is potential two and I just need some cheap to make it useful for my braver class. I want to make braver, my second main class, first being force. Baby steps but soon that dream will come true

reached level 36 on braver with the help of aluria. Went from Level 35 to level 36 and now I can use mine Cinquem Katana.

My braver / melee damage has got much better and now I am able to use my braver class. 40.9% to 62.3% And for the current build of the game, I’m not going to be dead weight, and I can pull my own weight here.

I have better augments on my braver now. I got rid of placeholder augments and it feels great.

I’m going to save my mesta for the new gear coming in the new region since it will power creep the Cinquem series and make it an outdated weapon series later on. It will still be good if you are farming levels around level 36 and up.

My grant unit will be replaced very soon as there will be a free unit coming soon in a seasonal event, and it is +50 too.

Day Two – 05/02/22

Did some farming at retem rank 3 to get some exp. I got a fair bit of exp and I’m close to being level 37

I level up twice. Level 36 to level 38. I am close to being to max level

Showing off some new fashion now my braver is complete at this moment. I can relax and enjoy the downtime of content since level 45 is the endgame at this moment in time.

I have thought about doing geometric labyrinth or (geo lab) for short when I reach level 45 on braver, it should be fun solo or that’s the idea anyway and I got some thoughts about geo lab. I want to get at least an “A” rank if able.

Dae has a new waifu named Arisu. Cute pair, they are.

Did the retem Renus Vera urgent quest but rank 1 with a pug.

I watch Arisu become op. They have upgraded their augments and watching them improve was pretty neat to see since some users in the guild have mix match augments. They have some good ones but end up slapping on some weak augments that don’t help out.

I learned some things here by eyeballing. If you wanted to do damage, you would need to be in that range, and given that urgent quests and giga monsters have greater or different defense and stats a normal monster would not have

Keep in mind that you may or will need more potency in a giga fight or urgent quests since they are normal monsters but supercharged.

Potency needed to do damage
Aelio ( 1 – 20)20%
Retem (21 – 35)40.x% or greater
Update (36 – 45) + Geo Lab54% to 56% or greater

I may make a augment simulator or a bare basic one that shows the percent of your augments. I will make a guide that teaches you how to use, if I make it.

Clicker Heroes 2 let down

Oh man, you hate to see it. A game I followed and was actively happy for was called Clicker Heroes 2. It is an idle game where you get stronger over time. Being a fan of Clicker Heroes 1, and seeing the game devs look like good people.

I pre-ordered CH2 (clicker heroes 2) since I wanted to try the game out. It was crazy paying for an idle game since the first one was free. But I was hooked on the project since it seem like there was a lot of passion behind this project.

When I got to play this game, there was not much to do once you got strong. You go to a world, level up and kill the mini bosses and kill the main boss. And this was back when the game first came “out” I dropped the game after a bit since progress would get reset back to zero, and would make me want to play it less.

So why am I talking about CH2 (Clicker Heroes 2) today? I had a itch to play this game after a long while, and I booted up the game and checked out the store to see the game went from positive to very negative. It is crazy. I backed this game without question, so this hurts to see.

And yes, there was not much to this game other than changing how to “play” this idle game. And given the extra fact that people had to pay to play this game was or should be a red flag for me but it was not sadly.

I just learned about this whole matter and it sucks. And the whole matter of resetting progress is very annoying but from what I saw, there was a blog post that detailed the state of this game but the post was in 2021 and the game had an update that seem to be the last one on June 16, 2021.

The blog post seems to be them blaming themselves using an outdated engine and from my understanding. They blamed the negative reviews for making their workflow slower and they got death threats, which I have to say is too far. You can be mad but sending death threats over a video game is crazy.

the blog post will be posted below.

https://playsaurus.com/blogposts/TheStateOfCH2.html

And pretty much, the game seems completely dead and abandoned at this point, and should they return, I see the damage is far too great to recover since if they would come back to fix the game. Their rep and status as a game dev have been damaged enough that some people will be careful buying games from playsaurus.

And it is a shame too. I had such high respect for this team and to see and hear how this went down. It is a sad story. I wanted to see this game to the end. This is why you avoid early access games, as they can be a crapshoot. They get from point A to B or get abandoned after a year or two and that is the worse outcome. And the latter of the two choices seems to be common these days.

This will or has made me be careful of getting games from this game dev team after hearing and I will say be careful buying games from this game dev team unless there is clear proof their projects or games are close to complete.

Like, what is this? Clicker Heroes 2 is in such a sorry state, and I hate to see it like this. I should have never brought or pre-ordered this game and it is a shame that Clicker Heroes 1 is a better game than Clicker Heroes 2, and the first game is free.

If it is not clear, I recommend you don’t get this game, you are better off playing the first game.

That’s all I wanted to say.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis log 1

So, it is time to track my progress in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis. It has been a while since I did this, and figure I do it again. Should be fun, I hope.

02/18/22

Augmenting my new gear

My new weapon: Cinquem Rod+40 has been augmented. The augments are slightly weaker because they are level 2 versions of augments and not level 3. I will try to see what I can get later on and I need to get the new gear or units.

 

Schwarzrosso Armor is something I don’t have the funds for, and probably won’t get updated to +50 for a good while, but I’m not here to sweat this game. I did what I needed to do in Base Pso2. Everything in New genesis is extra for me.

Once I get the new gear to +50, new genesis will be on the sideline, and if progress takes too long, new genesis will be on the sideline as well. lol

My new units will not replace the old ones at this moment in time. But later on, I will be able to replace them, I hope.

Materials 

The Materials I have at the moment, not many but the list will grow later on.

Farming with randos

It was pretty fun farming with randoms, and not my guild. It is nice to see new faces and meet new users, and they were pretty nice and chill.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New genesis Feb update

Well, it is time to talk about Phantasy Star Online 2: New genesis (Again) and one of the big updates that have come with it, and just share some extra thoughts and whatnot. And the changes here are “big” for what it is worth. 

And given that this update is part one and part 2 is dark falz and something else, there are a few things here worth of note and some things that are not worth a mention in my opinion.

Jukebox mag

Ever wanted to play your music in Phantasy Star Online 2: new genesis but got tired of opening up links on youtube, Spotify, that shady video site? Well, now you don’t have to do that. With the new feature added by this update, you can play the music that you got in-game. And if you are like me, and never brought any CDs for your jukebox in base phantasy. This feature might be useless to you.

You can change what the current theme is, by picking your song and confirming this is the song you want to play. Some themes will override the jukebox feature, as they have higher priority. Nothing game-changing here.

You are better off using youtube, Spotify, or a discord music bot for music needs. This is a feature for those who love the jukebox in base Phantasy Star Online 2 and want it on the go. And unlike base Phantasy Star Online 2, only you can hear the music playing from your mag. Friends and strangers can’t hear the music from the mag jukebox when it drops those sick beats. Only the user of their mag can hear the music playing.

Elsword Update log #2

So, I’m going to try this style of doing update logs on games or things. Keep track of seven days and note down important thoughts or moments that happened, and after seven days, show off the progress. And boy, got some fun drama.

Day 1 – 01/31/22

\\Rant\\

Elsword

Dealt with elsword drama with a leader. What a pain.

So, what did I do to get the boot from a guild in elsword? my experience.

I have ignored them in-game, I did not see them or anyone speaking on my end, which gave me little reason to chat in guild chat. Why would I speak in a dead chat? So I didn’t and ignored the guild. This, you should never be upset about.

Genshin Impact – Shadows amidst snowstorms

Time to talk about the genshin impact event. Shadows amidst snowstorms, which is a fun event. You can build a snowman, get good rewards. All the event mini-games will offer up points which you can spend in the shop during the event.

This event is mainly for Albedo, because of the weapon you can get that Albedo scales off of DEF. If you have or planning on getting Albedo, it is best to act now, at the time of this post, you have 14 days to do everything that is currently unlocked. If you do not care about the weapon, at least do the event for the items you can get. Mora, primogems, weapon materials, and character materials for leveling up. Exp for characters and weapons.

==Event==

“Born of the snow.” is a simple thing. You build a snowman when a new level unlocks but to build a snowman, you need to do “Dragonspine Special Training.” which has three parts.

Agility Training is a racecourse where you move from point A to point B while getting coins and getting there as fast to get the gold medal and snowman part.

Tracker Training is an event where you must look for and melt 8 ice crystal piles in the target area or the large yellow circle. Some ice piles may spawn enemies or boars. Amber / Klee is good since they have no cooldown on fire damage.

Combat Training is just here to see how long you can last the cold and enemies if you are careless. This mode has lures if ignored. They will raise the rate of sheer cold. Which maxed out, you will begin to take damage due to sheer cold, which is like every second of damage.

You will want to use a good healer/friend. Or a scarlet Quartz on the lures to give yourself a buff.

==Event requirements and details==

To join the event, you must have done the following.

  1. Reach Adventure Rank (AR) 20 or higher.
  2. Complete the Archon Quest “For a Tomorrow Without Tears.”
  3. Complete Albedo’s Story Quest “Traveler Observation Report.”
  4. Joel’s “Lost in the Snow” Quest.

Event gameplay start / end date.

Start: 11/25/2021 10:00 | End: 12/13/2021 03:59

Event shop start / end date

Start: 11/25/2021 10:00 | End: 12/20/2021 03:59

For more details, refer to the official genshin impact page here: https://genshin.mihoyo.com/en/news/detail/17233. Or refer to in-game about the event.

PSO2: New Genesis stuff

Gear and urgent quests

As we all know, having the best gear is good, having good gear is good too. It keeps you alive longer, and certain gear will buff your attack power in range, tech, or melee. And it is important to know what class that you want to play so you can gear it up to be ready to use well. Pick a class and sub-class, and mess around with it till you find a main class and sub-class you like.

Having units and weapons below max level is a big no-no. Hey, you! Yeah, you. Buying fashion? Focus on getting gear. If you can’t carry your weight, and that means your gear is not +40 and the weapon is not potential 4. You may /or will be doing next to nothing, and that right there is deadweight, and you don’t want to be a deadweight.

If you are wondering what a deadweight is, I will give you the meaning in my terms. A deadweight is a person who is there but can’t offer any use or support to the team. They can’t pull their weight.

We doing something different here. I will make this a long post. And take this with a grain of salt. This post is by no means a perfect guide. It’s more of a rant that has a few tips peppered into this post.

Editor’s Note: This guide is for Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis before the winter update. This guide may or may not become outdated after the winter update. And big thanks to Aluria proof checking it, and helping me with this guide.

Disclaimer: This is a guide/rant about some Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis junk. Maybe you will find it helpful? And to be clear, this is just a bare baseline on what you should do. I have just been playing the game and been getting help from my friend, Aluria. And that I have a “basic” idea, and I’m tired of guild members wiping out like flies, lol.

Augments on your gear or lack thereof

So, this part is going to anger some members, but I think I don’t care. So I have not only noticed users not having any augments on their gear but have had the unfortunate experience of being in a party with them.

It’s not fun playing with them and before I go on a rant. First off. Have augments on your gear. That means your weapon and units. It’s shocking to see players running around with 0 to 4 augments on their gear.

If you can’t get the best augments, you can get the second-best or at the very least, get some augments that give damage. The point is, have augments on your gear, it really does help out, and on the plus side having augments will help you and your team out.

Plus, you won’t look like a deadweight if someone checks your gear and see you have little to no augments. But of course, having augments is not all you need to contribute to your team and be of use. There is more to it.

You might say “But Ony, I don’t play pso2 new genesis TM for that long. I buy fashion then gear later.” Ok, in that case, I got some options for you. And these are free options.

  1. You can ask for help. Closed mouths don’t get fed. If you choose to stay quiet, then how can you get advice? More later on.
  2. Look up the augments online, and find what works for you in terms of augments. Again, ask for help, if you are unsure. And check the player market, if you can’t get the best augments, you can at the very least, get something worth the money, and no, not fashion.

Augments you want to get

So, this is just my idea and what I learned from Aluria. Here are some setups you can get to be ready. If you want to find the best augments, please refer to this link: https://pso2na.arks-visiphone.com/wiki/Portal:New_Genesis/List_of_Augments

For Melee build (Units + weapon)

The melee builds, oh boy. This is just working of assumption here but here are some augments you should use or try out.

Melra Dualble > Might 3 > Daityl Soul 2 > Gigas Might 2


if you want something in budget or around there.

Melra Dualble 2 > Might 2 or 3 > Daityl Soul 1 > Gigas Might 1


If you want the bare minimum

Magnus Note > Might 2 > Daityl Soul 1 > Gigas Might 1

For Range build (Units + weapon)

As someone who never used a range build. I could lay down a base guideline to get you started on the right path

Same as before, if you are rich, you can go for this build here. You don’t even have to be rich. Just save up money instead of burning it on fashion, BAKA!

Pettas Soul 2 > Ratech Dualble 3> Precision 3 > Gigas Precision 2


If you are looking for something to get by, this build may help you out. Just an idea. Feel free to mix and match here.

Pettas Soul 2 > Ratech Dualble 2 > Precision 2 > Lab Note


As mentioned in the tech section, if you don’t have money or you blow your money on fashion, here is the bare minimum that even you can “get.”

Ael Note D > Ratech Dualble > Precision 1 > Gigas Precision 1

For Tech Build (Units + weapon)

Here are some augments that you will want to have if you are using a tech-based class. And what I understand. If you have the mesta, you can go for this build

Technique 3 > Meltech Dualble 3 > Nex Soul 2 > Gigas Technique 2


If you are not rich and the market is pricey, you can try this build. It is a cheaper build if you are saving money but want something good enough.

Technique 2 > Meltech Dualble 2 > Nex Soul 2 > Resola Note


If you want the bare minimum and super cheap because you spend money on fashion to look good but be completely useless in action. Here is the BARE MINIMUM

Technique 1 > Meltech Dualble 1 > Nex Soul 1 > resola note /or tech III, > giga tech I > resola note > and nex soul I

You can ask around and look or do research on augments, as this is something I learned from my friend, Aluria. Just an idea of what you should get. Research, take notes, ask around. Something to think about lol. And keep in mind the market will spike in a while, so be on the lookout.


And units matter here since the better units are harder to get: https://pso2na.arks-visiphone.com/wiki/Portal:New_Genesis/Units

What each unit does for you, and depends on your playstyle.

Make sure your gear has augments. Please, please make sure you have augments on your gear. I said this before but please. I say this cause I have seen users’ units and weapons look like this. Don’t do this, and by this, I mean have little to no augments. see the following images below. please try to fill out all 3 slots or 4, if able.

missing augments, and most likely can be one shot.
missing augments
Weapon is good but not +40, missing a extra augment slots. Units are the bare minimum here.
Glass cannon. Weapon is not enhanced, no augments on weapon and little to no augments on units.
Not good but not bad. This NEEDS work. Weapon with no augments = bad! potential level should be 3 at least. units should be level 40 or 30 with augments slots filled
Almost right, even though one of the units has no augments
Huh? Weapon is base level with no augments. Two of the units are meant to be used as exp fodder, and not real gear. Augments on said gear are lacking.

I showed you the bad of having gear that has bad stats, let me should you what it should look like that has good stats.

The bare minimum you should have is as follows, if you don’t have a lot of mesta.

Pictures provided by Aluria

this can take around 30k mesta and depends on market or the fact you already have some of the augments laying around.

What your augments should be like. And yes, Using augments that increase the range of damage is better then using augments that boost defense as they do not matter much in early game, and you are better off having good augments that give damage.

Above the bare minimum. If you can afford it, try this out. This is affordable, but check market, if you saved up mesta and not blowing it on fashion. You can get this.

The idea here is to focus on getting the most out of your gear with augments.

And if you got the mesta and more than 1m you can try this. This is my force units below. Now, this is not the best but for what it does, I can clear most of the content in New Genesis with friends or whatnot.

Again, my gear is good enough to do content in the game.

Weapon level +40 – Affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed) – potential level 4

unit level +40 – affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed)

unit level +40 – affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed)

unit level +40 – affixes 4/4 – (fixa is optional but not needed)

What have we learned? Always have augments on your gear, there is no reason not to at this point. You can even buy cheap augments that give a good boost to damage.

And they are on the player shop, you don’t even need to buy the high-end augments. If you can’t buy them now. You can buy something cheaper as I said before.

You can go after fashion when you have gear ready for content and such. The whole thing “my gear is not strong but I want to run content or urgent quests” is fine but to a certain point. Once we get better augments and better gear and harder quests or urgent quests like Sodam where you can fail, that’s when it will no longer it will become fine.

Your Gear level

Another important thing to worry about besides augments, and is the level of your gear but the higher your level on gear will unlock more augment slots

Level 0 to 19 = default 2 augment slots. 0/2

Level 20 to 39 = unlocks third augment slot. 0/3

Level 40 = all 4 augment slots unlocked 0/4

This is why it is best to upgrade your gear asap, as you can reap the rewards

You want to aim for +40 which at the moment is the max level for gear. If you can not hit max level, you can try +30 to +35 which is in that level range. You want to get the max level so your flat attack and flat defense is high as they can be, which can also be boosted by augments

+0 is bad, +10 not as bad as 0 but still bad.

+20 “bare minimum”, +25 slightly better than +20 but you want to go higher.

+30 to +35 is better than the +25 but you want to get to max level to make full use of units/weapons but it’s good enough till you can reach +40.

+40 is what you aim for to get the most out of your gear, I made that clear. And it will boost your battle power? If you can’t hit +40 then +30 or +35 is fine. Every little bit counts and it adds up fast.

If you can’t play for longer than an hour, go farm materials and grinders, as you will need a lot of them. It should go without saying but get fodder items. Exp weapons, weapons with no value or units with no value to enhance your weapon.

+0 to +20 may as well be 0 as levels go, imo. If you can, go for +40. if you can not, +30 and even +35 as a temporary spot is good enough until you can get to +40 before we get probably 20 more levels for gear.

Leveling up is good

This will be a short bit. This is just something I want to touch on. Levels are important. It should go without saying but getting to level 20 before the winter update will give you a good headstart.

Being max level may not seem like a big deal, but it adds up over time, and what seems small and unimportant will matter later on, and will be the difference between you staying alive or dying in an urgent quest / giga battle.

  1. Level 1
  2. Level 5
  3. Level 10
  4. Level 15
  5. Level 18 – aim for this.
  6. Level 20 – good
  7. Level 21 – 25 winter update
  8. Level 30 winter update
  9. Level 35 winter update

Aim for level 18, at the very least. If you don’t like leveling, stop at level 18 or if you get to level 20. Just try to be a higher level than 15.

  1. Please farm exp (fodder units and weapons) and get your units and weapon to +40 and get to the main class to level 20 and get a subclass to level 15 or 20.

There are people in the witching hour guild that can give you advice on what you need to do to make the most out of your gear. I should stress that if you do ask for help rather it be Aluria, Arisu, Daestar, Zargon, Elpha. You do the following:

  1. You listen to their advice. Yes, it hurts to hear that your gear sucks but better to hear now instead of later on when people are doing new content and you won’t be able to. So please, if you want help with gear and tips, listen. Takedown notes.
  2. Understand that you will need mesta, augments, and +40 gear (units) and weapon with potential lv 4 and affix attack lv 3 or higher. BUT ask whoever is helping you what is the best affix for you.

I say all of this because we got a new region coming soon with the Winter update which will raise the level cap, and by proxy, may raise the unit and weapon level caps as well as the augments cap, but I can’t be sure.

This is why you need to make sure you are geared and ready. Because later on, we might have an Urgent Quest where you can fail if everyone wipes out (everyone dies)

Mining base is a good urgent quest to see how tanky you are and how much damage you can dish out. As much as I hate mining base, it can be good to see the following:

  1. Your dodge/block skills
  2. learn what your high damage low pp skills are
  3. are you DPS / or support?
  4. how well you can follow orders when asked to do something
  5. are you useful in action?
  6. How good your defense is, and can you take more than 4 hits?
  7. Learn if you are a DPS/secondary DPS / Support or buffer
  8. It’s best to learn your class/subclass in a controlled area before going to test it in a non-controlled area.
  9. Are you good / bad at luring mobs?

It is good to learn a class because like I said, there is no telling what kind of Urgent Quest may await us, it’s good to find out what you are good at, and being able to use 1 to no revives is a plus since later UQ’s will put you to the test in some way.

Let me say this. I am in no way a pro in Phantasy Star Online: New Genesis. I am a Force/techer who enjoys the game. And lover of cultured “wholesome” art, but let’s keep it real here. It’s lewd.

When you have got your gear fixed and ready for anything, you can spend mesta on fashion and other junk.

YouTube Livestream Announcement

It has been a while since I made a post for when I go live. But I will go live on YouTube this time. And give this another shot since YouTube has a wider reach of viewers since most, if not all users, have a google account.

So, on YouTube, I got some games I want to stream Phantasy Star Online 2 is not one of them. I want to try out a few games and maybe, some coding in clickteam fusion 2.5. I will list the things I got planned.

Stream list for YouTube (And since I didn’t do my random twitch stream, I can do it on YouTube.)

  1. Spelunky 2
  2. Duel Links
  3. Genshin Impact
  4. Minoria
  5. Elsword

I guess goals for the stream are something I should have planned.

Spelunky 2

  1. Get to the end without dying.
  2. Unlock hidden characters
  3. Go and clear hidden paths
  4. Play this for an hour.

Duel Links

  1. Do some story duels, or whatever I want to do.
  2. Play PVP and try to get to rookie rank or higher.
  3. Try to relearn bujin and vampires.
  4. I will play this for an hour.

Genshin Impact

  1. Complete a backlog of story quests
  2. complete any weekly quests
  3. Farm drops
  4. Get all my gear to +20
  5. I will try to make progress, if able.
  6. Play this for an hour or more.

Minoria

  1. Make progress
  2. try to beat two bosses
  3. And play as long until I beat two bosses. Or something comes up.

Elsword

  1. Do daily quests.
  2. Complete weekly quests.
  3. Make alt characters to earn gold in-game.
  4. Do this for an hour or so.

There is no order for these games in which I will stream them. And there is a chance I won’t stream every game/thing here, but I will try to do some of it at least. And that should be fun to do, for me anyway.

The Livestream on YouTube will start at 6 Am (on time) or 8 Am – 11 Am (If I oversleep.) And I will end around 2 pm or later. And this is all on Eastern standard time. And this is going to happen on September 25th, and I hope the stream will go well, lol.

When I go live, you can find the YouTube stream here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo4v2cNVN5AwUWl2xbY9VdA

Game development log

Ah, this will be a fun post since this will be a game development log for my clickteam fusion games I got planned and the progress that is on the way. Been a while since I made any game dev logs to show off things. It’s more of a what’s to come or what I got planned in the realm, I call my head.

Sonic’s grand adventure (Working title)

This is a 2d action platformer I had created in clickteam fusion 2.5. This is a game that started as an idea for adobe flash 3’s action script 3 but I didn’t know how to code in adobe flash 3, and I moved to gamer maker studio 1.4.x then clickteam fusion 2.5.

the idea for this fan game was to make something fun. I wanted to make a fan game I had in the making as an idea for years. This fan game uses another sonic engine for sonic physics, and even though it’s not the best, it’s good enough.

At the moment, this project is currently on hold / canceled due to this project making me depressed, but I will probably come back to this project, and complete it or offer something more complete.

The demo build is still up but has not been updated. It’s more of a test to play around with some of the things I added. I might come back to this in the future.

Dae’s adventure (Working title)

This is a text-based RPG that you can play in a browser or download to a desktop. This will be a simple game that is safe for work, and anyone can play it. I will think of a simple story and such. You don’t play as dae, but rather can meet him to join him or strike him down like other heroes.

I have other plans where you can meet Arisu the wise, Alurua the giant, and Elpha the smol goblin.

Go to wonderful places like Witching hour village, Mountains, the magic lake, while trying to avoid being corrupted by a foul evil in this world. Or some shit like that.

The roadmap is not planned yet but will add one here, and update it later.

Roadmap: https://trello.com/b/it37Nkio/text-based-rpg

New Year Fangame (Working title)

A new year’s sonic fan game that is a boss rush/time attack and maybe something more. It is a game you can speedrun and play around with. This is my current fan game that I am working on at the moment

You can fight 5 or 10 different bosses, but it may just be 5 for the time being. And it is something I hope people will like. There is an old build out but I got a new build of the game in the works, and it is a big update that may make the game worth playing, and new features.

I have a lot planned, and everything is getting a new update and a new engine with fast loops. :3

Snake

I remade the snake game poorly in Clickteam fusion 2.5+. It is not a perfect version of snake but it gets the job done, at least. You get the thing/apple to go faster. I may come back to this later and add some changes and updates.

it is a simple game, nothing crazy.
