.

Getting Started

Character Base

When you start a new game, you’ll be whisked away to the Character Creation screen. Just continue down the numbered path until you’re ready to start the story.

  • 1:  Choose a Race and Gender
  • 2: Choose a Class
  • 3: Select Character Base
  • +: Detailed Editing
  • 4: Choose a Voice
  • 5: Enter a Name
  • 6: Start the Story

When selecting a Character Base, please note that some makeup patterns are not available for selection. These makeup patterns will become available once you advance further into the demo.

 

rietheia

Your character will waken from a capsule used to keep crew members of the Delta Valiant under Cold Sleep. You’ll meet up with medical staff member Riethiea who’ll talk about the current situation and where you’re heading to. Soon after, you’ll meet up with the Combat Unit Officer, Fildia. 

Fildia will teach you basic game mechanics like:

  • How to Attack (Square Button x3)
  • Use Photon Arts (R+ triangle button/Circle Button)
  • Use Evasive actions (L stick + Circle Button)
  • Switch sub-palettes with the left and right arrow keys.
  • Do Just Attacks (Attacking during the Red Circle)

In addition you can:

  • Lock onto enemies (L Trigger)
  • Switch Locked-on Targets (L Trigger + R Stick)

Pretty straightforward stuff. Soon after meeting up with the main heroine, Lutina, the ship comes under attack and is forced to make an emergency landing on Planet Makhia. On this planet, photons have no effect, making all of their weapons virtually useless. That’s when the main protagonists find a crystal with a girl inside. She teaches the characters of an energy known as Gran. This energy is the centerpiece of the story, providing the crew members a chance to survive.

The [Game Flow] section of tabs below will walk you through various aspects of the demo.

Game Flow Tabs

 

Game Flow: Base Tour

Nova Base

The main headquarters is split up into two areas. The outside area is known as the “Base.” Here you can purchase weapons, shield units, items, and clothes. In addition, you can change your class, and purchase new features. Each shop is unlocked by completing Fildia’s promise orders. We’ll talk more about promise orders in another section.

 

The Bridge

Fildia PO

The “Bridge” is the commander’s deck of the ship. Here you’ll meet Fildia who’ll soon hand out promise orders as you advance through the story. For now, after watching a cutscene you must depart on a quest.

 

Quest Gate

This is the Quest Gate. From here you can depart on a quest. In another section we’ll talk about the rest of the facilities you can access.

Click the [Quests] tab above to continue the walkthrough.

  • Enemy Defeat Ranking

  • Number of  Incapacitations

You’ll even receive Gran Energy, EXP, and materials as rewards! Afterwards, head to the bridge for a cutscene.

 

Speak to Sharon

The game will indicate that you’ll need to visit characters with red icons overhead to advance the story. After a cutscene with Sharon, head to the Quest Gate and start the next story quest. Don’t forget to add Lutina, Sail, and Izuna to your party!

Click the [Orders] tab above to continue the walkthrough.

Game Flow: Promise Orders

Fildia PO

Promise Orders are requests from NPCs you can fulfill to receive items and unlock new features. Some Promise Orders can be performed once, others can be repeated as much as you like. The first two Promise Orders you can take are from Fildia. The red icon overhead means you must speak to this person to progress through the story.

 

Nova Promise Orders

You can unlock new shops and facilities by clearing Fildia’s Promise Orders. Each Promise Order requires a set objective which must be cleared to receive the rewards.

Take note of the icon colors that appear in this menu.

  • The green icon indicates the order/item is ready to be handed in.
  • A red icon indicates it’s part of the story line.
  • A yellow icon means you’ve already completed the Promise Order.
  • A blue icon means the order is currently in progress.

Halo Weapons

After a cutscene, a new weapon category will be sent to your inventory. You can learn how to equip weapons by reading the [Start Menu] tab at the top of this post. This new weaponry is called “Halos.” They are used to create floating platforms when fighting the Gigantes.

 

Triangle Halos

When a Gigantes appears, switch to the Halo weapon category and press  triangle button to create a “Ring Field.”  Step underneath the ring field and press Circle Button to teleport onto it. If you wish to leave a ring field, run to the edge and press Circle Button to go back on the ground.

 

Ring Generator Slot

After the quest, if you head back to Sharon and clear her Promise Order, you’ll unlock a new item called “Ring Generators.” These items allow you to create “Ring Fields” without having to use a Halo. Since these are consumable items, they must be set to the sub-palette.

Click the [Cold Sleep] tab to continue.

 

Game Flow: Cold Sleep Counter

Cold Sleep Counter

Not Available in the Demo

Cold Sleep Counter

  • カプセル解凍: Defrost Capsule
  • 全クルー情報 Crew Information
  • クルー配属 Crew Assignment
  • パスワード入力 Enter Password

Use the Gran you’ve acquired to awaken crew members from Cold Sleep. These crew members can be assigned with managing various facilities around the base.

 

Cold Sleep Counter

Based on their personality traits, you can unlock bonus effects when assigning them to the right facility.  In addition, you can recruit crew members to your party to help you fight the Gigantes!

 

When you first access this menu, you’ll have to awaken “Leaders” for each section of the base. In the screenshot above, you’ll generally have to select how many crew members you wish to awaken.

The more you select, the more Gran Energy is expended to awaken them. However since this is a part of the storyline, you’ll get 4 story NPCs for free.

Select 「はい」 to continue.

 

cold sleep save

From this point, the game will force you to save. This action MUST be performed each time you awaken crew members at the Cold Sleep Counter.

 

Crew Members List

After you awaken crew members, you can verify their names, class levels, and personality traits from this menu. Each character has a list of traits and effects for you to confirm by pressing the triangle button button. You can also press the Square Button to model the character.

 

Generalist

If you have PSO2 installed, you can awaken Echo, Afin, and Zeno! Otherwise you may select the first option to awaken “Generalist” crew members.

コールドスリープカプセル (Cold Sleep Capsule)

  • ジェネラリストクルー (Generalist Crew)
  • セクションリーダークルー (Section Leader Crew)
  • PSO2クルー (PSO2 Crew)

Generalists are crew members with extensive knowledge. They can handle themselves as base personnel and can assist in combat.

 

Red Icon NPCs

After some cutscenes, you’ll see several story NPCs with red icons overhead. Just speak to them to unlock new quests related to the character. However, this is probably a good time to introduce Crew Assignment.

 

Crew Assignment

You may either head to the Lab or return to the Cold Sleep Counter to assign crew members to your facilities. Based on their personality traits, assigning them to certain facilities can activate bonus effects!

Facility List

  • クラスカウンター (Class Counter)
  • 武器ショップ (Weapon Shop)
  • 防具ショップ (Shield Unit Shop)
  • アイテムショップ (Item Shop)
  • 食堂 (Restaurant)
  • コスチュームショップ (Costume Shop)
  • エステ (Beauty Salon)

It’s better to memorize the facility icons when assigning crew members.

Press Square Button to remove them from a facility, or press [Start] to automatically assign crew members to each facility.

  • The game also seems to automatically assign the best crew members for a facility.

 

Reanbell Este

Reanbell when assigned to the Beauty Salon, will activate a new effect. A quick way to tell if a character works well together with a facility, is to see if any of their traits have a green icon. When you assign them to the appropriate facility, the “Shop Effects” window in the bottom right corner will display information about the activated effect.

Class Counter lv 2

Level 2 facilities expands upon the selection of items you can acquire. It also unlocks more customization options at the Beauty Salon! Don’t forget to assign crew members to these facilities, though none of them at this point will have traits to affect the facilities.

 

Skill Board 2

Multiple Skill Boards

Clearing Orcus’ Promise Order unlocks a second skill board. It works exactly like the first skill board, just set the skills you wish to activate on the new board. However there’s a twist!

 

Skill Board Equip

In the equipment menu, you can attach a skill board to a weapon. Press the left and right D-PAD keys to change which board applies when the weapon is equipped. For example, if Step Attack is set on Skill Board 1, but not on Skill Board 2, any weapon attached with Skill Board 2 will not be able to perform a Step Attack.

 

kisara
Operator Choice

Operator Selection

After clearing a certain Story Quest, you’ll come upon the option to choose an Operator. You can choose between Kisara or Riethiea when you speak to them.

At this point you can read up on unlocking the next class in the [Buster] tab, but come back here after you’re done to complete the Promise Orders and continue on with the story.

 

 

 

Game Flow: Busters

Buster Class

Buster is a new class intended for battling the Gigantes. They posses equal ability in Striking, Ranged, and Tech, and can equip all weapons including Piles.

 

Lab 2

The Buster class can be unlocked by investing 5,000 Gran Energy towards the research of a new weapon category.

 

 

PSNova Classes

After a cutscene, head to the Class Counter to change to the Buster class. Head to the weapon shop and select the new weapon category slot to purchase a Pile. Once you’ve equipped this weapon, there are a few things you need to be aware of:

  • Busters have to set a an action on the sub-palette to capture a Gigantes.
  • Capturing a Gigantes requires the firing of these little yellow stakes called Piles.
  • You can fire the stakes at the enemies by using Gran Arts like Pile Shooter, etc.

 

PSNova Sub-Palette Menu

A new category has been added to the Sub-Palette Equipment menu:

  • 消費アイテム Consumable Item
  • スキル Skill
  • ロビーアクション Lobby Action
  • テクニック Technic
  • ギガンテス Gigantes

 

Pile Ignition

Buster Tactics: Ignition Skill

As a Buster, you’ll be tasked with capturing the Gigantes. That’s right, you can capture them and summon them to the battlefield. They won’t stick around very long so they’re best used in dire situations. Aside from that, you can equip a new skill called “Ignition” to your sub-palette. This skill can be found within the “Gigantes” menu when equipping actions to the sub-palette.

You can learn more about equipping actions to the sub-palette by reading the [Start Menu] tab.

 

Gigantes Not Death

Now this part is key, whenever the Gigantes is in a weakened state, you can detonate the piles attached to its body to initiate a “Gran Link.” This can only be performed when there’s Piles (yellow darts) attached to the skin of the Gigantes.

 

Gigantes Weakened

When the Gigantes initially falls over, its weakpoint comes exposed glowing a bright neon red. Once its HP is low, this weakpoint will begin to glow a bright yellow, indicating its ready to be captured.

 

2014-11-30-104238

From here you can initiate a Gran Link, by pressing the “Ignition” skill on your sub-palette. This will capture the beast and allow it to be summoned through a Gigantes Blast in future battles.

 

Gigantes Sub Palette

Afterwards, you can add the Gigantes you’ve captured and summon them to the field in a Gigantes Blast! They can be found within the “Gigantes” menu when equipping actions to the sub-palette.

 

Gigantes Blast

The Gigantes Blast gauge will fill as you defeat enemies. Once it’s full, the icon will light up allowing you to summon them during a Gigantes battle!

 

During this time, you can complete Sharon’s Promise Orders and finish the rest listed in the [Upgrades] tab.

“Disposition” works similar to placing objects in your room on PSO2. First select the facility, furniture, or floor, then place them down by using the D-PAD and Circle Button button. Keep in mind that each facility and furniture “costs” a certain amount of space (as shown in the details window). Since you have two floors to choose from, you shouldn’t have any problem placing down all the facilities you need.

 

Expedition

Expedition Party HQ

You can dispatch your crew members out on an expedition to find materials and items. Each expedition requires a certain number of people, takes a certain amount of days, and provides a certain level of danger. These can be alleviated by assigning crew members with traits related to this facility. If this menu is grayed out, it’s fairly likely that you do not have enough “idle” crew members to go out on a expedition. So awaken some crew members in the Cold Sleep Counter until you have enough to start the expedition. The crew members will return after a few “days,” or in-game terms, after a few quests.  When they return they’ll provide some materials they found on the expedition.

Converts the ability on the Attachment Part over to the one you’ve selected. This feature is a quick way to skip out on hunting for materials needed at the Weapon Shop.

First select an Attachment Part. The ones highlighted in blue are already attached to a weapon.

 

attchpart2

Then select a new ability to overwrite the existing one. After selecting the core, you can confirm the results of the attachment part, by viewing the top right window.

 

Core Grinding lets you take the ability of several cores and convert them into a core with a stronger ability. This process becomes available when you have three ore more cores with the same ability.

Examples:

  • Power I > Power II
  • Mind IV > Mind V

Consult the Cores tab to match the Japanese names.

Core Selection

First choose the ability you wish to grind. Then choose 3 cores from the list to convert over into a stronger ability. After the process is complete, a new “Small Core” will be created with the more powerful ability. You can create Attachment Parts for this ability at the Weapon Shop.

      1. @Ricardo im currently lvl 63 and was curious about the level cap will it be like PSO1+2,PSU,PSP2 where the lvl cap was 200? Also do you know if theirs gona be a story translation/script being made in progess cause im up to where u have the third area to your base with the giant spear looking weapon, Im interested in the story and know the basic of the beginings, but overall this game is still enjoyable and fun and if pso2 was offline this would be the game so to other PSO2 fans or PSO in general i recomend this game.

        Ps:Sorry for having so much question this game just too good lol

        1. Well i beat the game 2 days ago its a good game but to bad i don’t know japanese i should really learn it but anyway i’m a lv 87 and i think the lv cap goes up to lv 100 i think i’m not to sure and i got my Chain up to 910 and it stopped at 971 here is picture proof but i only took the 910 one and i don’t know what the 2 ! ! are for. http://i.imgur.com/Zb8tUpR.jpg

    1. Level 3 allows you change all the proportions and colours of parts/outfits (that can be changed). Basically it’s the same as having an Este pass on PSO2, but permanent.

      Level 4 just adds a random option (available after beating the story).

      1. Since you’re near the end of the game, I actually need a screenshot of all the skills you’ve unlocked so I can place their icons in the list. An Imgur or Minus album would be a good way to assemble them all.

  1. Guys, can anyone tell me what must I do on this quest? I’ve tried many times, but I always fail since I’m not able to read japanese. If anyone can tell me about the goals of this quest (Only when you must defeat seven big spiders), I’ll be very thankfully 🙂

    Greetings.

  2. Hi, will you be updating the promise orders? Can’t get through the post-game POs that wants me to collect some items (Can’t read Japanese lol).

  3. So I am trying to figure out how to get the refinery. I have already beaten the game, and I have lvl 4 of all of my shops, but the refinery is not an option for me in the Lab to create. all of my facilaties are lvl 4 also.

  4. I have a question I have been looking for some guides in the internet it seems there’s complete lack on info on how to unlock missions in the endless content so my problem how do I finish orkus’ POs for unlocking SH if I can not battle those bosses

    1. Basically, after you beat the game, you’ll see a new quest highlighted in green. After you complete that quest, you move on to the next quest highlighted in green. You keep doing this over and over until you have no more quests to unlock.

      SH is a part of the guide we’ll try to cover in the future, but the massive increase in enemy HP has severely slowed down our progress.

      1. Ricardo, when I’ve got more time to post some discovers not appeared in the website, I’ll try to collaborate with you if there is possible. Plus, we should post some advices to players to advance… in SH… yeah…

        Even with boosted Tech Arts JA Bonus (80%), bosses are hard, very, very, very hard…

  5. So, I’m probably way super duper late to the draw, since I just got the Chinese 1.01 update (same as JP V1.05) yesterday, but what do Level 5 Facilities do beyond adding an extra slot?

  6. I’m stuck in the post-game. I’m level 101 and the quests to fight the reskinned Gigantes aren’t showing and either are the quests to unlock super hard mode. Can anyone tell me how to advance, I’ve been stuck for about a week.

    1. After you beat the story, you typically go around the map clearing ALL the new quests that unlock. Beating a quest unlocks another new quest, and you keep doing this over and over.

      1. Thanks for the quick response!!! Now I just have to take out that mechanized shrimp in the mission before the time runs out. Do you have to do the timed mission on the top of the map that you are given a hunter as well?

  7. Is there by any chance an offline version of this guide or similar? Im not online a lot and I just ordered the game, so an offline guide would be nice… even if its html format

  8. May I know how to repair my party member’s clothes or mine? They said theres an option after completing the story but I have no idea how. I’ve already completed my main story.

    1. You must talk with them, but instead using the Promise Order or the talk option, you must use an option which will be blocked, generally the 2nd or the 3rd one, iirc…

  9. I am having trouble completing the poison examination promise order. Am i suppossed to poison enemies or be poisoned?

    1. Have you ever learnt the techs? If not, you must “buy” it in the class counter at the cost of memory fragments and element fragments that you can find in the adventure. The first levels requires memory fragments A and B, and when you increase the lvl of your techs and/or your GAs, you’ll use C, D and better memory fragments.

      Greetings.

      1. You have to be a FO or a BU (Buster class), not only FO. HUs and RAs can use techs, but they must buy the skill called Technic Usage. That skill can be seen in this guide. Generally you unlock that skill when your FO class is about lvl 84+.

        Greetings.

  10. Hey I was wondering if this game had a prestige system or something that let’s you reset to a lower level after you hit max level?
