I figured that it would be good to have this topic to discuss. Basically, discuss your current impressions of PSO2 up to this point. This should also be valid for future episodes unless separate topics are created for each one after.
For myself, I've been able to enjoy it. It is hard to be able to enjoy it as equally as I can with JP, because of the episode we are on. There are some minor things I miss, like crafting. Once I start maxing levels, I get this desire to wait until the NA version at least is able to get crafting so I can be able to do that much at least.
With the urgent quests, I'm really enjoying Coast / Wopal. Yet that's really the only one I can enjoy and be able to benefit from that I know of. The Falz Nest is good for EXP but I'm not fond of it. City seems to be the best but I don't care for City.
I don't mind doing Advanced Quests for leveling, but having to shell out that cash or team points for capsules is annoying at some points. I much prefer the fourth Featured Quest (Recommended Quest in NA), and it's much less hassle overall.
I am actually able to focus more on grinding (enhancing in NA) my weapons and gear rather than affixing, and by the time affixing becomes relevant, everything else should already be up to par by then. Even without affixing, the game is still deep.
Finally, I just wish I had more skill points to work with, but I know with time I'll have them.
