@NackDN said in Differences between NGS Global and JP:
Off the top of my head, JP-Only Things Include...
- Old-Type Weapons. Prior to late-JP EP3, the only weapons in the game were "Old-Type Weapons," which operated off a different Weapon Enhancement system (basically, the current Unit Enhancement system--downgrade chance included--and you had to get a single weapon to effectively +30 in order to max it out). However, SEGA started adding "New-Type" weapons into the game, which not only used the current Enhancement system, but were typically stronger then OT weapons. After a while, NT weapons became the norm, and OT weapons started to become exceedingly rare.
Its more like +40 as OTs capped at +10 & when unlocking the Potential it'd drop to 0 grinds, so +30 for Lv. 3 Pot then another 10 to max the damage.
- The Triggers available in the Rising Weapon Badge shops. Many of those triggers are only available on JP through the Treasure Shop, or in a lot of cases, like "The Face of the Abyss," are completely unavailable as a trigger.
Black Fellwyrm is unavailable too I believe
- Less Titles and Reduced Title Requirements for Chronos Eternistones, Key Rivalate, etc. The vast majority of OT weapons gave a unique title for getting that specific weapon to +10. Since Global doesn't have OT weapons, these titles were therefore unobtainable by-design and removed from the game. However, Titles that were earned by collecting a number of other Titles also had their requirements significantly reduced to compensate.
Also with the vastly reduced weapons, the Weapon Compendium 7＊~12＊ count was reduced for Global as well. Since JP had to collect 15 ★7~9s & 50 ★10~12s for all classes with exception to Hunter/Fighter which needed 70 ★10~12s & Braver/Bouncer only needing 30 ★10~12
the Rising Weapon Badge 5 & Unique badge shops.
the 14＊s in Rising 5 are from JP' s Conqueror's, King's & Hero's Crest exchanges, while Unique weapon badge's Ares Series & 15＊s are in JP Hero's (Ares) & Sage Crest (15＊s), I'll note However the Ares Harmonizer in JP's Hero's Crest exchange is +35.
Additionally JP player can Exchange Sage Crests for a Chronos (x600), Amph Stone (x900) & Riv key (x900) only 1 though.
Playstaion & Switch
Much like how Global Got Valve Collab items via (we'll say login system), JP Switch players could earn Titles for Breath of The Wild items such as (Link's outfit M/F, their hair, 2 Hyrule Shield Accessories & a Master Sword Camo) by the same requirements as valve titles. For Playstation Users Kuro & Toro (JP Sony Mascots) appear in the shopping area by the central water fountain (item shop/costume side) partner card titles (6) & a Mag Device of them are earned via friendship.
Meanwhile, Global-Exclusive Things Include...
It should be noted that the ＊Charleville1766 & ＊Turkey Leg are Global exclusive camos.
Orochi Agito - JP's is a 12＊OT & 14＊NT, the reason Global's is 12＊ is the 14＊ hadn't released via pso2es when Global Launched.
Twin Orochi - The same as Orochi Agito
Elder Rifle - JP's is a 10＊OT, no NT version. so 12＊one Global has is exclusive
Dalz Varley - JP's is a 11＊OT, no NT version.
Psycho Wand - much like the above weapons JP's is OT though it is 12＊, so that's exclusive in that sense
Gal Wind - Same as the Psycho Wand
Vraolet & Nyoibo - these aren't in JP's Excube Shop nor are they NT
EXP Weapon Mini - not in JP's Excube or Photon Booster Exchange
Photon Booster Exchange
11＊ weapons & ＊Two-Headed Ragnus / above camos - Aren't in JP, there are 11＊ units though & a few different Camos
Global has a hellova a lot more & all permanent + super easy to clear. For JP, only Seasonal Files were easy while Permanent ones were a grind I compiled all of JP's Collection Files last month, so you're welcome to look through, though for % per run you'll have to check Swiki. <- Link to JP Collection File Page (% varies by Collection). It should be noted there are CF Boosting Items on JP to further note the grind.
That's all I can think of off the top of my head at this late of night. I realize this is between NGS JP/Global, but I already typed all this in response. Sorry, not sorry about this Pariah-Chan.
On the Note of NGS though, JP players can't bring their OTs in. So at least in that regard the weapons allowed in are consistent.
