Chase Advance Hu/Fi with 13* and affixed some status effect besides freeze. Use sword.
Chase Advance and crit Fi/Hu using 13* preferably Austere or Ares or the Nab DS.
Force is gonna be worse than both of these if we get some real numbers of enemies and they aren't spread out.
what the fuck
Yeah I know how they work.
Critical is for doing 1*1 damage and not around 0.9*1 damage
>yfw the talis is a better looking knuckle than the actual knuckle
also, holy shit that was a mess
>critical on both stances
>NO FUCKING BOW SKILLS
dude what the fuck
what the fuck, man
slayers do indeed boost tatk, but you can't trigger them at will because you can't LB, same as crazy heart
fill up the other stance first NO CRITICAL JESUS CHRIST and dance between them depending on position
only then, when you have spare points, pump the rest and go nuts if you want since you should have like 10 or more points left, you can also pump HP if you are a fag, or DEX if you are an even bigger fag
IF YOU MAIN FIGHTER
why didn't you just say "EI GUISE I NEED HELP WITH A BUILD" instead
So I played this back when the tweaker had barely just come out and the english patch wasn't quite as complete as I'd have liked.
How is it now? Can you see the item name of dropped items now, or equipment in general? How about the options menu?
Thanks a lot.
So some have been saying Invade weapons have some sort of greater damage variance to them. Can someone please give a source for this, and say how drastic it is?
So long as it's the minority of items that's fine, I'm assuming things like monomates and pipes are done. Back when I was playing items would drop on the ground and you just had to memorise what everything looked like, or remember your quantities.
I played Monster Hunter purely in Japanese for a few years, so looking up the odd weapon or new content stuff is fine, I just find it exhausting.
What is the meta for affixing units for a Fo/Te at 3, 4, and 5 slots?
I'm thinking elder/spirita/technique, then a fever for 4 and modulator for 5.
I want to affix my units but I have no real direction.
there are tatk bows you can use for double tech damage thanks to a bullet bow PA, having skills that improve that even further is cool
you should have asked cookie cutter fo builds and how/why do they work, mang
props for trying for yourself first, though
also, for leftover FO points, do as this guy says >>121057018
you could also drop talis shit and pump an extra tatk up when on fofi and go full rod because techarts, but then you'll miss it when outside of it, so don't do that unless you're willing to get loads of trees
Should I switch weapons acording to ele weakness if all my other weapons are weaker by 200-300 S-ATK? The best I have is 50 Light too, so it's not like I have to switch from it that often.
Subbing BR as FO implies you know what you're doing and not a bumbling fuck that takes both stances and their crits. That's a useless waste of points.
If you intend to sub BR you take weak stance and the bow skills. You take the bow skills for when you use a FO equippable bow like リカウテリ for bosses. You're not playing BR sub to its capacity if you just "spam techs"
Apprentice soul boosts modulator, I don`t know any that boosts flict.
>Do I not match weaknesses as a Fo/Te
You do, he was probably talking about matching weapon element, even though you should match that too, regardless of your class.
Is it even worth upgrading the pot?
A 1% increase shouldn't mean much, right?
Okay Guys I Got This
Builds For Mining Defense Four
Pure Flame Master: REVENGEANCE
Desert Magical Hunter Reborn:
Multi Element Wise Sage 2:
Yes, but you might want to prioritize modulator over stat (or even over soul) for hybrid classes, like techer main, since the raw atk gained will be higher on mod than on any other affix.
>chase arrow as FO/BR
It can be nice for a slightly higher starting banish, but other than that I don't know if it's worth it spamming them over and over, considering it's not being boosted by anything from the FO tree.
Not really sure it's worth using points for that purpose, after the last month changes I think it might be better going dual stance here too, and switch to Avg. when you're not able to either match your chosen FO element vs enemy weakness or hit weak spots easily.
It's either that or tossing them into DEX in case of whatever.
I just tried out dual stance with my fo/br and it's totally worth it, one shotting mechs with rafoie even as fo/br with a crappy gunslash is pretty good
Fo/Br might actually be legit now outside bosses too
Reminder that doing viniculum makes you a "shitter" in this community. Unless you're Rayles of course. He's touting his shit units as a BR/HU right now. Magatsu rear and Hex Arm/Leg. 4-Slot with just shit stats. But he will call you a shitter for not having a byari 5 slot saiki.
>After all his shit talking about Br/Hu not being as good as Fi/Br
>Still uses extended Magatsu rear
He's trash at the game and always will be. He will just go "BUT MUH IEEE MAKES ME BETTER THAN YOU" to try to win.
Why do you think he's friends with the other trash like Meido? They're bad and just circlejerk how shit they are trying to think they're good while attempting to force themselves into other peoples circles when unwanted.
>Fire FO/BR vs lightning weak using weak stance, matching lightning weapon and lightning techs
1.1*1.1*1.1 tech JA/charge
1.25 ele conv
1.35*1.1*1.1 weak stance
> Fire FO/BR vs lightning weak using avg stance and fire techs
1.1*1.1*1.1 tech JA/charge
1.25 ele conv
1.15*1.1*1.1 avg stance
Not included talis mastery or weapon potential, but you get the idea.
I stand corrected then, and upset because this just encourages using a single element.
Really nice parallel area. It's a shame there were only rappies
>encourages using a single element
Kind of, and at that point might as well FO/FI if you ask me, even though with BR you can kills bosses better or spam techs more comfortably, especially vs weak.
Still beats fucking TE sub.
Ah fuck you're right.
Avg still beats it though, ends up around 3.26 if you take that into account, and I didn't screw up.
Might be worth it carrying a few off-element weapons in case you're fighting against those 2 fire resistant shits.
You're all saying this now but you watch. Even if it flops when it comes out, SEGA will go in and make it the next flavor of the month which you cannot resist. Just like braver, they'll make it the EZ mode you want and everyone will flock to it. Then they'll slowly balance it down to not be OP. That's what will happen. You'll ridicule it now, then you'll be jacking off to it like your waifu before you know it.
You got to see 3 minutes of video, yet you've decided it sucks just because you hate the idea of being harry potter with a few pokemon.
I used to think better of Medio until finding out he's another supreme faggot on board with Rayshit.
Post a pic from your pso2 folder you never have a chance to post / don't know why you saved it.
Uh, the whole thing about furries is that they want to BE animals, not that they LIKE them, you complete and utter tool. You might as well call everyone who owns a cat or dog a furfag with your ridiculous criteria.
Im trying to log onto the vita version and i get the email code, no problem there.

Not sure if i want to keep trying or it might lock me out or something
Dolphins and other mammals engage in same-sex non-copulative sexual activities, and dolphins and whales are often considered to have higher intellectual capacity than us, with their large brain size relative to their body size. They also possess brain structures which are absent in humans, responsible for functions we could never possibly comprehend. Yet you don't see dolphins bullying other dolphins over it or beating other dolphins to death and otherwise depriving them of a natural lifespan due to anger over their perceived masculinity/ego/worldview being threatened. It actually deepens their social bonds, which is favourable for survival. Killing or injuring a person for having a sexual orientation that makes you uncomfortable but is otherwise not immoral will do nothing but spread negativity and pain beyond the initial target. The victim's family members and friends, the perpetrator's family and friends, no one is in a 'winning' position just because some bigot decides to violently 'get even'.
Either everything is natural or nothing is.
And I hate you too Twin Dagger shit. Fucking Gale Vishners when.
Everyone will be getting 15 rare enemy triggers from the live broadcast in the near future. If you're lucky, you might be able to get a set by asking to join trigger MPAs when that happens.
Play black nyack to get Coins for triggers then use said triggers to slay Ginna-gams
>need to win a bonus round with a SP card blackjack on a double down to get 1400 coins.
or you can win 1 roll of roulette for 1500
why summoner hate? it looks pretty cool, except for the furry shit, but maybe we'll have more monsters to summon than just those 3.
I'm curious to know how it works honestly. are the monsters techs or something? are they based off of the weapons?
yeah man, I also think it's pretty cool watching an animal do my job for me while I watch from afar
now excuse me, no time for videogames, my wife's bull just arrived and I have to prepare dinner for both
Everyone is complaining about summoner.
But you know damn well you're still going to fucking play it anyways, so why bitch? I'll be the one laughing at everyone when they start playing it too when it becomes the Fotm class to be not just because everyone is leveling it, but because it's OP as fuck.
You're hearing it right here and now folks, you guys that are making fun of summoner will be the ironic maymay of your opinions at first glance, then being the fucks that are playing it because it's OP.
>you will have to level summoner for its class bonus
>150 EXP tickets stored from login bonuses
>implying i'm not going to skip as much time playing the class as possible.
You clearly don't understand people and this game do you.
There's a group of people that will play it on first day, a group that will level it for class bonus/completionist reasons and stick with it, then there is a group that will jump on the Fotm OP band wagon that it might be even though they made fun of it so much.
Rembemer braver being a joke/disappointment when it first released? Look what happened when it got shunka, everyone played it. History repeats itself always.
Gotta get that level 75 class bonus for my other characters.
>This nigga doesn't have ALL classes 75 yet
Come on, faggot.
Don't forget to fight Loser again when an EQ shows up after you finish that story quest for a pretty solid epilogue
Incoming ebin blogposting but i need an opinion or two
>mostly play ra,fi and bo
>ideal,gal rifle and xie launcher for ra
>ideal knux,gal ds,lavis for fi
>gal butts and slave db for bo
literally what am i supposed to get with my falz stones?
Now I absolutely need a loser EQ!!
There's an epilogue to every end-of-episode story quest in addition to the Ex Chapters in episode 1 and 2 (doubt there's enough time before Ep 4 comes out so we probably won't get any for Ep 3).
If you need to double check they're as follows:
Episode 1 - Complete episode and defeat Elder, takes place on wreckage
Episode 2 - Complete episode and defeat Loser, takes place in the portal room outside where the EQ is fought
Episode 3 - Complete both outcomes of the last chapter, complete PD EQ. Takes place in the ending field and IS FUCKING RADICAL PLS BE EXCITE FOR EP 4
Who on Ship 2 wants to help me kill a certain monster for it's weapon in around 30 minutes?
Trying to understand that whole TE/HU thing and have some questions
t-attack mag is what i should aim for right?
in term of affixes something like apprentice soul/tech/mod/pow is preferred right?
lastly are there any recommended HU weapons like lindbreak/red partisan?
kind of how like magic does your work for you and you just stand there and cast it?
Also the video only showcased a small function of the new class, not including how any other cross-class to it might change the way its played like oh I dunno maybe attacking monsters WITH your monster? Like having one mag and then a STEROID FUCKING MONSTER MAG to help you beat shit up?
It's okay. When all the rest is revealed, you'll quietly be one of those guys playing that class saying "O YEA THIS WAS GREAT FROM DA START!"
Kind of like that guy Rayles.
it may end up being a fun class and I'm sure the jp probably aren't too happy about the style choice either, so sooner or later Sega will have to change the summons' appearance it they aren't changeable already.
You are all going to play summoner.
Mark my words.
You know why? Because CLASS BOOST.
That's why. So whine and kick about it all you want now, but you'll be playing it like SEGA's bitch. So better start liking it now or better just write off a free class boost.
>I'm sure the jp probably aren't too happy about the style choice either
I don't know there were a lot of 8s at the end of the video
The problem right now is that the preview video didn't really reveal too much aside from the classes' aesthetics. We can only make rough guesses about how it plays based on the whole thing with the baton and we certainly don't have any idea what the skill tree is going to look like.
I'm out, sorry I don't find facility mobs or boss fun enough to spend all that time killing nothing but them, good luck with your drops though
The general reaction on the nico video and post-video comments from various users on the servers and cmode share ship were widely positive. For the most part, people are not concerning themselves so much with the looks of the monsters so much as the gameplay opportunities it offers, which a large number of people here are not even considering.
>b-but summoner is fine because sega can do no wrong
jesus christ the shilling is real
they're not even bringing the game to the west
stop doing this
Should I switch my Ra/Br for a Fo/Te? Well not switch, but level my Fo/Te too and maybe make it my "main". I'd do it on the same character and get 2 mags, I'm too lazy to do alts other than for COs.
TE was garbage for the longest time, RA was nothing but a WB slave for the longest time, FO was garbage until Elemental Conversion, BR and BO continue to be fucking messes that Sega has no idea how to properly balance, with BO being the most braindead and boring class in the game.
Reasons to Choose Summoner:
[ ] You're a shitter and are afraid to actually be in the action where there's risk and reward
[ ] You're a shitter who doesn't want to learn how to cast techs properly
>don't worry guys, i'm summon spec'd ;)
>kind of how like magic does your work for you and you just stand there and cast it?
How's this even a comparison, the monsters will eventually attack you, instead of attacking "your foie" or whatever.
I'm sure it's going to be enjoyable watching the gameplay unfold right in front of my eyes, SEGA sure know current trends, it'll be like watching a stream, only in-game!
do we even know how its the gameplay?
also why does everyone here sound like they were raped by niggers and stretched our their anuses and shitpost about them because they know they come here?
>Were you not here in 2012-2013?
I was here, a lot of people, specially HU mains complained over RA and FO because "both are good friends always holding hands because SEGA always smiles upon them, they remain strong but they ignore us HUnters"
>They nerf zonde
Assblasted HUs made a big deal of it, like if you tripped on the street and somebody came up "LOOK AT THIS GUY HAHAHAHA SO FUNNY EVERYONE LOOK HAHAHA WHAT A LOSER HE TRIPPED" while everyone else is "whats wrong with this loser? shut up freako"
FO sucked fucking hard and everyone knew it
RA was strong only because it brought WB to the party for the players that actually did damage. It was the butt of every joke, FO was garbage and RA was called WB because it was shitty outside of it.
>RA was nothing but a WB slave for the longest time
wot RA was the first class that broke visual damage cap (99999) and OHKO mobs/bosses
>FO was garbage until Elemental Conversion
>zondeel literally murders everything in ancient burst and Falz EQ
>zonde OHKO AQ mobs so hard that SEGA had to nerf it
Judging from the video, the monster attacks seem to be just like PAs/Techs. But the way they edited the video where it zooms in on the monster makes it looks like they are autonomous, but right after it shows the character doing a motion and the monster does the same attack previously shown. Guess we'll know for sure once they decide to reveal more.
All in all,
that trailer music felt the most out of place
The monsters will attack the pet instead of you.
The only thing that can save the class in my eyes is SEGA pulling another weapon for this class, with a more "traditional" approach.
But then again, it wouldn't be a summoner without summons would it.
Yes, the summoner looks dumb AS A MAIN CLASS.
What kind of "stances" do you think it'll get for its class skills? Something that might be viable as a sub class?
No the only class that's been consistently strong, relevant and somewhat well designed is FI, and even that has the problem of Limit Break having completely invalidated main class BO and BR for the longest time, though the problem there was more on BO and BR for being horribly designed.
>What kind of "stances" do you think it'll get for its class skills?
I hope Summoner comes with ogreloads of
Or, alternatively something that would change people's mind ...
sub-class only skills, inb4 everyone going fi/su
I thought, since it attacks the pet and keeps shit off you, FI LB with wise stance could be nice.
Then I realized you probably need that gay ass baton to control the pet, or even to have it around.
Maybe workable with techs, since you can bind those in the toolbar.
>can only have 1 summoned out at a time
desu that class looks like it was supposed to be a new pet system in addition to mag then Sega decided to turn it into a whole class by making AI control as "PA".
We are missing only tech/ranged class
i dont know how ratk would be involved since summoning always involved... magic! or photons in this case
there are 3 kind of summons
what if every summon benefits from different stas? like that bird summon benefits from ratk, or that red thing benefits from satk, etc
fighter is strong... unless you don't want to play LB:the class, guest starring fury stance: the subclass. and before LB, if you weren't subbing fury stance it was shit. don't fool yourself.
fun weapons, shitty tree.
clearly a Rayles post.
go back to your hole you little fagloid, nobody called you.
>When summoned pets take damage, you take 25% of said damage to your PP, if PP drops to 0 you take 1.5x direct damage to your health instead
Would this stop people from whining about how summoner stays in the back
>yfw summoned pets have separate hp
>yfw those stupid pets die instantly in Falz as they have no dodge AI just like support partner
Rangers complain about how hard their class is because they have to deal with projectile attacks and rolling, and how Satellite Cannon and End Attract can't be cancelled.
Forces complain about how nobody understands how complex their class really is and how investment heavy it is to be playable.
So, Summoner's defense will be about managing their pet's health despite supposedly being a ranged class (dealing with enemy melee attacks from mobs and bosses) and how useless they are when their pets go down.
The only difference is Summoner's complaints will be legitimate up until SEGA introduces some buffs or main class skills to make all pets tanky
This guys wapanese autowords could use some work
I want the rod for character purposes. Ideal rod doesn't show that I am master of any creature associated with water and will assert my dominance. Nepto is a smug bastard who flaunts its rod and controls water lizard, and I want to take its rod for myself.
Also extending sounds like a hassle with the damage ranges.
Wait, are jukeboxes really worth 200k on the market?
Sounds like a plan to me. I won't undercut ya.
Only if cooler summons come out,the ones shown are outta place.
I don't understand why these people do that. Can't they see that's not japanese? If you want to speak japanese in-game so hard can't you at least type that shit into hira/kana?

Do worthless SPs count?
I wish we could all just get along. There's so much despair and cruelty in the thread. All the name dropping and disdain for certain players, I'm sure if we all just talked it out we'd realize how nice everyone is!
What I propose is a ship2/4 meet up! We can get together on block 420 and chat about our lives, the video game, our deepest darkest fantasies.
Who's with me? Turn that shitposting into friendposting guys! Say something nice about all the people who get spoken of negatively. Positivity is a virtue ya'll!
Nobody gives a fuck about your idealistic bullshit, skele-tan. Nobody has a life so empty that they have an investment in your obsessive need for this general to be a hugbox. It has been getting steadily worse, but somehow peaks in how shitty it is when you're around.
That's stupid, I hope you realize the shitposting is actually funposting and nobody really hates each other like you seem to think right? "Namedropping" is only a meme in /pso2g/ there is fundamentally nothing wrong with it and I don't see it in other generals.
Game =/= thread
No thanks to meeting up. Last thing I want to do is end up being someone's pillow to talk and cry to. That shit is exhausting to deal with. Gawd knows how many people on this thread/game have fucked up lives of their own and aren't willing to deal with it.
To the guy who just tried to spook EDF into thinking that the TS server got hacked 2 weeks ago into installing rootkits
You need to work on your consistency when you try to pull this shit
dunno what that has to do with the quoted post tho
Doesn't change the fact that people that take what is said in the thread seriously are still retarded. I'm all for meeting up on shared ships and chat about the game maybe, not about our lives, in between CM runs but not for the purpose you mentioned.
That's the opposite of the message I'm trying to spread!
>Love you buddy
is what you should've said!
I'm not that person, but you should quit being so sour, they seem like they have the right idea, let's just hug it out bro, come here!
MMMMM, I genuinely want that to be true, but it's not. You guys are too rude to each other, we've all seen the logs.
We can chat about something else if you prefer!
Who says we have to cry about things? This is supposed to be a FUN time.
All right, let's go back a step, name someone and then say something nice about them! I'll set an example.
Sofa has a nice fox character.
Basically I'm saying everyone here's fucks and there's a reason nobody trusts anybody.
Trust is an illusion you see, and thus so is friendship and belief in 'kind' people.
This sort of thing is what is keeping me from posting my name or wanting to meet anyone from here. I'm not by myself or anything, since I have my own group of friends where I am. On the shared ship I've met one person from the thread, but I feel like I was lucky and finding a nice person was an exception. But then to some of you I'm just that tryhard person not worth anything aside from a laugh because I inadvertently responded to a troll and gave advice on how I use talis at magatsu.
>MMMMM, I genuinely want that to be true, but it's not. You guys are too rude to each other, we've all seen the logs.
But it is, the logs you've seen are probably people that don't have enough social skills to get along with the community and they're the one that have to do the effort not to be disliked in the first place, it's definitely not something that can be generalized.
Said logs probably involve the same people over and over too, which reinforces my point.
a /pso2g/ reputation is not something I would call valuable, especially in your case where it's one or two vocal retards that don't understand that the point you were trying to make was that talis and rods are situational, and that are trying their hardest to stick you the "tryhard" name.
You shouldn't generalize from that but you're free to do whatever you want.
someone should post all the IP's since teamspeak shows them
You know absolutely zero about the summoner's:
-results from cross-classing
Yet you've concluded it is shit. Mind Blown.
I should say SEGA has to make shit easier for numbskulls like you who are too stupid to figure out anything more complex. I sympathize for them to have to deal with massive idiots like you in the playerbase.
>unironically shilling for SEGA this hard
Just like a beaten up wife coming back to her deadbeat husband.
What kind of wimpy ass summoner can only summon one monster at a time anyways? (lol)
yeah, we should all play tera instead. best mmo
looks like one of those pokemon bootlegs from the late 90s/early 2000s
I don't even know how anyone can take SEGA's side on this matter when nobody here knows ANYTHING about Summoner. But you'll defend this trollship you've set sail on until it sinks.
>anything being challenged by a new class in PSO2
To be quite honest family, everyone is gonna get BTFO by this new class with an underdeveloped skill tree, mediocre main class weapons and skills, low amount of PAs and mediocre damage in general.
>Doesn't change the fact that people that take what is said in the thread seriously are still retarded.
>Any community that gets its laughs by pretending to be idiots will eventually be flooded by actual idiots who mistakenly believe that they're in good company.
Ok, so is the Episode 3 pso2 English installer supposed to run on its own? Like, does it include the base game?
I installed it, ran the tweaker and it's just not having it at all, I assumed at 24 gigs that'd be everything but I'm starting to think it's missing a bunch. Unless the English installer from arks-layer is just shit somehow?
Anyone have experience installing with the English installer from scratch?
Not sure what point you're trying to make:
1) We're not flooded, genuine complete idiots are still less than 5 in my opinion
2) In case we were, I'm not sure meeting up in shared ship would solve that.
Reminder to have a good day and not be rude to others. I love you /pso2g/!
No matter how hard you shill for summoner furfags, it still breaks the meme of human and alien technology.
Go fuck your dog.
>Wolfy wags his tail
Pets aren't a furfag thing, anthropomorphs are. You'd have a point if we were able to summon cheetara or some shit but that's not what's happening here. At least not that they've shown us so far.
REMINDER THAT SUMMONER IS A HALF-RUSE MEANT TO CRUSH YOUR HOPES
THE CLASS IS REAL AND IT IS JUST AS SHITTY AS IT LOOKS, BUT THE REST OF EPISODE 4 IS GONNA BE AMAZING
WE'RE GONNA SUPLEX A FUCKING TRAIN AND WE'RE GONNA GET NEW PAS FOR EVERY WEAPON AND NEW NORMAL AND COMPOUND TECHS AND WANDS ARE GONNA GET THEIR OWN PAS AND THERE'S GONNA BE EARTH TECHS AND THEY'RE GOING TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WIND IS A SHIT BY ADDING A NEW SKILL THAT ADDS DAMAGE BONUSES TO WIND AND EARTH TECHS AND WE'RE GONNA FIGHT AN OLGA FLOW EXPY AND THERE'S GONNA BE LESS OF A FOCUS ON MPA CONTENT
The base content is good, the way it's handled not so much
Saiki best unit set by far for the whole episode
Giving the best weapon drops to one or two enemies, grindy as fuck ways of obtaining otherwise
Ult is a clusterfuck and nerfed to shit now
Restricting the number of runs on EQs/schedule only EQs
Profound darkness/double are a joke
XH being eq/aq only is stupid
The only disappointing thing is how little they actually revealed. Demonstrating the new character customization options was nice, but beyond that they basically just announced Summoner, played the video, and left it at that. It's fairly obvious they deferred any other reveals for the Dec. 23 broadcast they announced.
>Giving the best weapon drops to one or two enemies
This was true before too, though, the problem became manipulation of the enemy's spawns, which wasn't something you could really do with the "best" drops before. And there was no other way, not even a grindy as fuck way to otherwise obtain them.
Clusterfuck ult was good.
Restricting number of runs gives them more leeway to make drop rates reasonable.
Alright, maybe that's not it and they just don't want you swimming in too many cubes or going too tryhard for octo-runs.
Saiki has sidegrades at least, not every weapontype benefits from too much PP.
Best weapon drops are kinda either rare or grindy to obtain? Dude. They're the best. What do you want.
ARKS boost was a terrible idea and I hope they never employ it in the same fashion in the future.
Kuronia. They probably just don't want to tire out the latest difficulty in the same episode it was introduced, expect explores in 4. Not that explores have good exp or drop rates, but I guess it'd make grinding certain bosses for their drops easier.
Can't believe I'm glad I had to miss sitting through the whole 15 hour stream, but I am.
If they announce a new race come 23rd that they omitted this time around, I'll play tank LB FI.
It wasn't though, the best drops were from different enemies in AQ or free field, then there were Falz/TD drops which weren't that much better unless you were lucky enough to get the same drop twice (which was very rare)
Pfft, I didn't sit through the entire thing, I just napped through the stuff I didn't care about. I think most people just went to sleep at one point and woke up for the last part
The gameplay and class balance is way way way fucking better than 2. You can even reasonably spec in more than just half a tree. That's more than enough reason for him to stay by me.
If I may speak for HU, Guard Stance is not nearly as sucky as it was, it can easily kill things in Ult with little effort and keep all aggro.
The thing is now that the game refuses to offer things that are worth having tanking for, with Ult Nab (the place it really shined) got nerfed. So no matter what, Fury's going to come out on top, because while >getting hit still isn't anything more than a meme, you'll never be in a situation where you can get hit a lot in a short period of time again.
Oh and, Pretty Good and the series leading up to it are absolutely useless. Absorption makes no sense when you can switch to an EP or Chainsawd, by god that pot needs a nerf still.
I guess what I want to say is, he seems to have a good eye for what the classes need, but the threats: attack frequency, ailments, pure attack of mobs are lacking and instead, everything gets HP stacked on just so certain classes can actually touch enemies before they melt. And it seems it'll remain that way because of the casual playerbase.
I feel like the man has contributed a lot but he'll never raise our expectations beyond that point.

>Suddenly full PP bar from zero
Also upper trap is great for regenning PP on Magatsu. Poison is probably the least useful unless you really REALLY need to poison something for some reason. I guess you could gravity bomb things into the poison bits for more PP regained but the gravity bomb itself does that already.
Where's my fucking gunslash bullet keep so I don't have to feel obliged to spec into traps at all, it's in the data somewhere, I already have my Vera latented and raring to go.
It's the same reason War Cry sucks and the only reason anyone bothers is because it's a prerequisite for War Brave
Tactics Trap is War Brave in this scenario, it doesn't work without using those otherwise useless things
>Sega makes Tactics Trap a skill
>Not their intended purpose
I could understand blurting words out before you think, but damn all the words are right there and you STILL clicked "Post".
The point is they were originally meant to be used for DAMAGE, STATUS EFFECTS and CROWD CONTROL like in previous Phantasy Star games but it turned out that they sucked at the first two and Gravity Bomb was the only thing that could do crowd control so they made Tactics Trap specifically so traps would have some use without rebalancing the entire game or making them as good as they were in Portable 2.
