So, perhaps this is common knowledge, perhaps it isn't. If you are newer to PSo2 like me then this will be helpful
I have been stuck in a pattern of using 13* collection sheets to get fodder to get my weapons to +35 since I am preparing to make 15* weapons.
Today I found an easier way.
With the current log in bonus and just doing your dailies you should of gotten a good bit of Kagaseo Phantasmalite from Tokyo bonus keys. A quick google search shows this isn't useful for much. However you can exchange it at a 1:1 rate for photon boosters.
Exchange these and get a bunch of Photon Boosters then head down the counter to the Photon Exchanger.
Go to the photon booster exchange shop. Among the first items is a Exp Weapon Mini. You can get these for 10 Photon Boosters. So 100 Photon Boosters = 10 Exp weapons.
The exp weapons give +400 weapon exp and cost much less overall to upgrade your weapons with.
- Weapon exp from the weapon exp mini is +400 - Weapon exp for a 14* Occuld was only 200
- Sacrificing a 13* or 14* star weapon for exp costs 100,000 meseta - Using the exp weapon mini only costs 2,000 meseta.
You are getting more exp for less money and this will go a long way toward upgrading your weapons. Especially if you got your eyes on a trailblazer and have to upgrade 5 other weapons to +35.
Don't skimp on the 13* collection folders though. These will give you the biggest boost for dismantling and right now we all need all the sapphard and goldgrimo's we can get.
I didn't know this personally. I also didn't see a guide anywhere. This may have been a thing all along. However for those that didn't know I hope this helps
