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 came here to read , i left with a three month supply of salt for my popcorn and fries, dear RnGesus Almighty. just to clarify Hero isn’t all that once you enter XH difficulty because IMO its built to “manage” XH. Early game levels it may look retardedly strong, with all those multipliers , but at XH,all those multipliers just barely help it rake damage for burst which Fi and Gu mains can dish out in like a few seconds
    Easy mode, well I think BrHu is king of easy mode in that department but before i get called a retard for voicing my opinion might as well leave it at this
