RIP, thanks for clearing that up! Been unable to track down a transcript of those as well. Will try searching again at some point, maybe I missed something, welp.
Converse with fellow players
@VanillaLucia First, thank you for your detailed answer(and agreed on the tough boss fight sonic, altho its also fun AF :p), I learned about something that I wasn't even aware existed. There is a but coming, but its genuinely not meant to invalidate what I wrote right before this, this was very cool to learn. That said, bit of a misunderstanding here, mayhaps I didn't communicate it well enough.
I am talking about dialogue accessed via the interact button on the various NPC's in the hub area, non-cutscene dialogue. Say Echo next to the class counter, or Zeno next to the item lab, or Tia and Pati in the center of the shopping plaza. AFAIK they have some unique dialogue after specific story missions, and I was wondering if there was a transcript of those dialogues/blurbs ^^; because I tried completing a random story mission in Episode 1 for example but unfortunately they only say the end-of-episode 1 lines now, and not anything in between.
Its not a big loss if they are inaccessible/unrecorded, just would be a cool thing to access. Thankfully this ain't Trails in the Sky I s'pose!
Base PSO2 story/wiki question:
Is there any way to access previous story dialogues(in the hub) that all relevant characters such as Zeno/Echo may have had at previous progression points? Such as say, story dialogue on the ship after [spoiler]the first time fighting Dark Falz Elder(arms) and their get together on the platform or even after fighting Zeshiraider and talking to Maria the first time[/spoiler] or any other such events. Would a replay of the relevant mission cause these dialogues to show up again?
Alternatively, is there some place where all these hub story dialogues are written up? I tried chechking phantasystar.fandom but they only seem to have in-quest write-ups, and that's unneeded(for me) since I am replaying the entire thing properly for the first time anyways.
@VanillaLucia Thank you, this is really helpful. Gonna try and gather parties from now on then. Also thank you for the EQ heads up, gonna keep an eye out for it.
on earning 150k/200k - is that with meseta drop rates up only or can we get 100K+ regardless after certain stages? I did upto stage 10 and got some meseta but nowhere near what you mentioned AFAIK. If so, where would I get meseta drop rate up items?
@Kodiakmax-101 thank you for the heads up on the expert matching and for plugging ruins/oceanids as well.
what's the best way to farm advance capsules for photon booster farming? I spent 50 Adv A caps on a very hard quest and got like, 10-12 B's in turn. Do Adv D-E-F drop at higher rates due to higher difficulty?
EDIT: While I am at it, what's the best use for extreme quests? What can one farm or do with them, or is it just something to do for titles?
Question: Do we have a list of recommended weapons to upgrade to 30/35 for their augments/S-augments/factors/potentials? Bumped did not seem to have it unless I just overlooked or misinterpreted summin.
Gah, the jargon can be confusing, just venting, I'll catch on eventually lol.
EDIT: Nvm, I have discovered the ARKS Layer affix simulator. Woops.
Yakuza 0 and self care.
@VanillaLucia Huh. Interesting. I vaguely remember something about a matterboard from when I first played PSO2 JP years ago, back in 2013. Translation used to be pretty sparse back then. Good to know that even if I have forgotten a ton of ep 1's story it won't matter much going forward lol.
And yea, fair enough(about treating it as GEater), although I can't help but find some of the lore beats and science fantasy things PSO does really intriguing(lore/worldbuilding), could be a case of just not being exposed to such stories much, which is why I can be a bit anal about catching up with a story before continuing.
Danke for elaborating!
@VanillaLucia welp, for now I will just roleplay that I am a suddenly amnesiac arks who is with a twin dagger wielding dudette who is about to fight some dragon who apparently saved her from an experiment. Remembering past details beyond that? Psh, I am sure nothing important happened like a sudden Dark Falz reawakening thingamabob. Or something...about...old weapons...?
Psh. No biggie.
Ah well, worst comes to worst, ima just binge the cutscenes again. Danke for the quick reply, your consistency is admirable yo.
