April 20th Update

Gaiden Quests

Gaiden PSO2es

Introducing Side Story (Gaiden) Quests! These quests follows the storyline of a weaponoid chip. They can be accessed by pressing the new hexagonal button located on the main menu screen. After tapping that button, you can select a weaponoid chip to play through their story.

Players who do not have the weaponoid chip in possession, will only be allowed to view a portion of their 1st chapter. After acquiring the chip, you can play their story in its entirety once all their chapters become available. New chapters will be released periodically, so check back in the future to see when they arrive.

 

Story Unlocking Gauge

Weaponoid Unlocking Bar

Clearing a quest with a Weaponoid chip equipped will increase its Story Unlocking Gauge. You can unlock additional chapters for your weaponoid chip by filling this bar repeatedly. Clearing ALL chapters of a weaponoid’s story will transform that gauge into a Present Gauge. Fill that gauge to acquire new presents from your weaponoid chip like [Rainbow Weaponoid Stones] and [Weaponoid Boosters].

 

Results Story Unlocking

You can see your progress towards unlocking the next chapter during the Quest Results screen. The letters [St.2], as shown in the screenshot above, indicate we are working towards unlocking the 2nd Story Quest for More. Also take note of the book icon, since Bio Triner does not have a story available yet, her book icon appears missing from this screenshot.

The Story Unlocking Gauge will switch over into a Present Gauge only when all the chapters of a weaponoid’s story has been completed. Since only two chapters were released for More’s story, you will not be able to receive presents from him, even if you max out his bar.

More’s Gaiden chapters also require that certain Story Quests are cleared. Please be sure to do the non-gaiden Story Quests to unlock additional chapters for More.

 

Unlocking Weaponoid Abilities

You can unlock new abilities for your weaponoid chip by completing ALL of its chapters. For example, completing all of the Dragon Slayer Gaiden chapters unlocks a new ability that extends the duration of the chip’s effect.

 

Present Gauge

You’ll unlock a present gauge after clearing all the chapters of a Weaponoid’s story. The Present Gauge works the same like the [Gaiden Unlocking Gauge] in that it rises when clearing quests with the Weaponoid chip equipped.

Items you can receive from a Weaponoid include:

  • ウェポノイドストーン虹 : Weaponoid Stone Rainbow
    • Can be traded in for items at the Recycle Shop!
    • Currently you can trade them in for ★12 weapons.
  • ウェポノイドブースター : Weaponoid Boosters
    • Unlocks new potential abilities on certain pre-existing weapons.

As of April 20th, these weapons will unlock with a new Potential Ability.

  • Claymore (Sword)
  • Dragon Slayer (Sword)
  • Mace Of Adaman

Weaponoid / Weapon Set Effects

Some Weaponoid chips will enable a set effect if you equip both the Weaponoid Chip and its corresponding weapon.

As of April 20th, these weapons and weaponoid chips will qualify for a Set Effect

  • Claymore (Sword) + ★10 More Chip.
  • Dragon Slayer (Sword) + ★11 Dragon Slayer chip
  • Mace of Adaman (Wand) + ★11 Mace of Adaman chip.

Equip Weapons / Chips

Equip Weap Chips
Weapon/Chip Equipment (武器/チップ装備)

Weapons, Units, and Costumes discovered in PSO2 and PSO2es are shared across each version. You can select a weapon by tapping in the area indicated in red in the screenshot above.

Tap on a chip or a blank space to select a chip from your inventory. The first slot will be designated as the Friend Assist chip. This will allow your friends to use an extra chip when they invite your character on quests. Generally the PSO2es community prefers their friends to have passive chips in the Friend Assist slot. It’s highly recommended to use chips featured in the latest scratch as those tend to be the best chips for the current Emergency Quest.

Weapon Proficiency (aka Weapon Mastery)

  • Weapons and units in PSO2es can be equipped at any level. However, you will incur a penalty if you equip a weapon below a certain level. For example, if your Weapon Mastery is at 50%, you will only be able to use 50% of that weapon’s original stats.
  • Some weapons have [Early Learner] abilities which allows you to achieve the weapon’s full power at an earlier level.

 

Equip Defense

Defense Equipment (防具装備)

Here you can change your costume and units, however PSO2es will not display any units on the character.

Defense Mastery

  • Weapons and Units in PSO2es can be equipped at any level. However, you will incur a penalty if you equip a unit below a certain level. For example, if your Defense Mastery is at 50%, you can only use 50% of the unit’s original stats.
  • Some units have the [Elemental Limit Break] ability which increases the maximum value of a particular element by +20.

 

Change Class

Use this menu to change your current class. Subclasses are not available in PSO2es.

 

Sell Items

Choose which chips or items you wish to sell, and press the [決定] button and [はい] button to confirm your selection.

 

Chip Grinding

Abil Grind

Chip Grinding allows you to increase the stats of a selected chip. The resulting stats will be shown on the bottom right corner of the screen.

Chip Grinding

  • To speed up the process, you can tap the second green button 「おすすめ強化」 to have the game automatically select chips for you.
  • However this is not recommended later in the game as it is better to manually select Light elemented ★4 /★7 / ★10 [Rappy] chips to grind a chip.
  • Any chips selected for the 5 empty slots will be destroyed after the grind process is complete.

Ability Grinding

  • Certain chips are activated under certain conditions. You can increase the activation rate of these “passive” chips by increasing their ability levels.
  • Select the first green button 「アビリティ強化」 to have the game automatically choose the chips for you.
  • In addition, increasing the ability levels of Photon Art chips will decrease the amount of CP that’s needed to activate the PA.

Whether you are Chip Grinding or Ability Grinding, you can initiate the process by tapping the [決定] button at the bottom right corner of the screen.

 

Chip Unlocking

PSO2es Chip Unlocking

Chip Unlocking lets you evolve your chip passed its current [Normal] cap. Doing this will require a bunch of materials found within Special Quests. Those who play Emergency Quests can also retrieve these materials by playing the BONUS SCRATCH.

While navigating the Story Quest menu, tap the Special Quest button in yellow at the bottom of the screen. A specific [Daily Quest] will appear each day of the week, rewarding you with chip unlocking materials based on the score you achieve at the end of the quest. Be sure to check the current date and time in Japan to determine which Daily Quest is running.

Daily Quest Chip Unlocking Materials

  • 月曜日 Darker Core Mondays
  • 火曜日 Amduscia Elements Tuesdays (Fire)
  • 水曜日 Photon Factor Wednesdays
  • 木曜日 Naberius Elements Thursdays (Wind)
  • 金曜日 Lillipa Elements Fridays (Lightning)

Both Photon Factors and Excited Photon Factors will drop in each Daily Quest, Monday to Friday.

 

Weapon / Unit Grinding

Afterwards, press the [決定] button at the bottom right corner of the screen to Grind your item.

  • Both Meseta and [Grinders] are required to grind your items.
