PSO2 Episode 5: Hero Class

Hero Class Unlocking

Phantasy Star Online 2 introduced the Hero class as part of its Episode 5 update. This class has the unique ability to fluidly switch between three weapon types in the heat of battle.

Heroes have swords, twin machine guns, and talises among their arsenal. Thanks to their unique Photon Arts and Weapon Actions, they’ll utilize the weapons a bit differently than what we’ve seen so far.

In order to unlock the class, you’ll need to acquire 3 Titles, each from a class representing the main forms of attack. This client order unlocks upon heading to the Campship.

Title #1: 打撃を極めし者

  • One Lv. 75 Striking Class (Hu / Fi / Bo)

Title #2: 射撃を極めし者

  • One Lv. 75 Ranged Class (Ra / Gu / Br)

Title #3: 法撃を極めし者

  • One Lv. 75 Technic Class (Fo / Te / Su)

Once you’ve acquired all three Titles, head to Koffie to clear the following:

  1. i have 3 each class 75 is Hu, Bra , Fo . i obtain the tille too , why koffie dont give me a Quest to get hero ?

  2. Make sure you walk towards the Launchpad (the Tunnel), you should get an Update that Coffee has new Client orders.

  3. Not just any 3 classes, one striking class (HU/BR/FI/BO) One ranged class (RA/GU) one tech class (FO/TE/SU)

    For example; being 75 Fi, Te, Gu would unlock Hero

  4. Copied my translation from Discord to help out. Going to bed now… 7am… Night.

    [6:44 AM] Max: So, for now, Hero is fun… But completely overpowered. Enemies die too fast to actually enjoy what you’re doing…
    [6:47 AM] Max: Hero Skill tree below
    Keep in mind that it will be ALL SKILLS, even default ones, top to bottom, left to right.
    [6:52 AM] Max: Row 1
    Hero Boost, 10 points. Max level, your power increases 1% for 60 seconds to a max 60% buff. Resets on taking damage.
    Hero Counter, 5 points. Succesful dodge results in your dash attack powering up 110%. Must use invincibility frames to avoid damage.
    First Blood, 1 point. Gives the first attack on drawing a weapon the Just Attack bonus.
    Hero Mag, default. Transfers all S, R, and T ATK on a mag into S, R, and T ATK stats. a Lv200 S ATK mag will give +200 to all attack stats, for example.
    Step. Default.
    [6:53 AM] Max: Row 2
    Hero Weapon Boost, 10 points. Equipping a sword, mech guns, or talis increases power by 50% at max level.

    Step Attack. Default.
    [6:57 AM] Max: Row 3

    Hero Time Finish, 1 point. While in Hero Time, activate the skill again to perform a finishing move. Think Katana Combat; Hero Time must be reactivated before the gauge runs out.

    1. “Hero boost reset damage once hitted” sounds like gunner’s tmg gear or Gix weapon pot

      “Hero counter must use i-frame to dodge attack increase damage”, is hero class can learn step advance skill?

        1. I guess so, Hero class broken if has step advance skill

          How long i-frame when dodge direct attack with hero class? 0.1 sec?

    1. No. You need 1 class of (Hunter / Fighter / Bouncer) AND 1 class of (Ranger / Gunner / Braver) AND 1 class of (Force / Techer / Summoner).

  5. If you are sure you should have level 75 classes across the three categories, try swapping between your characters and checking your titles at the title desk with each of them. The required titles are new, and likely have not been added to your account yet. You need to visit the title counter with each character that has one of the three category classes at level 75. When done, you should be able to unlock hero class.
