@Maxwell said in My current problem with this version of PSO2:
The title alone may make you think that I'm wanting more content & while I do... but I'm not really focused on content i.e new areas & quest-types; my issue stems with limited loot pools, fresh finds exorbitant prices/not being able to sell them, & no real reason to play after acquiring max level(s).
So I'll break it down starting with the limited loot pool claim. I'm a JP vet & have played PSO2 back in 2013 (off & on) so I remember some of it because it was apart of my childhood & I remember lots of loot that made farming for affixes conveniently using a certain weapon (trainers saber think it came from rockbear or rare version). There's a ton of 10-11★ weapons & I think units that are currently missing from Episodes 1-3 (We're on EP3 right now), a noticeable one would be the sword named "Ellsion" & wand "Elysion" which drops from Profound darkness & both are missing yet Psycho wand is in; heck even Elder pain is missing. The game is currently throwing 3 kinds of placeholder rare drops at you & those are "Deo", "Sigma, & "Revolsio" all which aren't relatively good especially when we're missing PvP for Revolsios other photon form.
Fresh finds or star gem deals is not a feature on JP servers but this to me serves as a cosmetic catch-up mechanism & at the same time it's a major problem because the prices per costume are 20$ on up but also cannot be sold. So if you're on a small vacation, decide to play another game for a bit, etc then you'll miss out on any chance to obtain an outfit that you were looking forward to because it cannot be sold anymore (used to supposedly be able to do it during the first week but it was supposedly a bug). Fresh finds is way different from the scratch because you can sell it while it's also relatively cheap to obtain them via AC scratch tickets. You may say that it will eventually appear in a scratch in the future & yeah that is true since the Anime eyes re-appeared in a scratch.
The current version of the game is very limited (we still don't even have craft-able PAs, Units, or Weapons yet) so once you hit your 75 in your preferred role, the only thing left to do is to level another 75 or try & farm decent gear. Those two fronts pose a major problem because after you get all lvl 75s there's no reason to really play (I'm not 75 in everything) & obtaining decent gear currently is worthless because real gear starts at 12★ units & 13★+ weapons. So all you really can do is make place holders but when you're done with that... then what's next?
There's more I can say but I think I've gone on for too long I do wanna clear up a miss-understanding that I guarantee will occur & that would be the old "Just play a different game & take a break" argument. That doesn't hold because I just AFK on PSO2 lately while I play League,BDO, Halo,etc. The other argument would be that I'm not understanding because of the virus & that is something I 100% understand but they can definitely juice the loot-tables, it's practically a switch at this stage since development is complete & I doubt it's a cert required process.
Thanks for your time & lastly Gimmie my Snow White Arks trainee outfit Sega.
We are actually in Episode 2 right now, not 3. Also Elysion and Ely Sion both dropped from elder, not PD.
To say that "real" gear starts at 12 star units and 13 star weapons (we already have 13 star weapons, fyi) is also kind of a very weird thing to say. Current gear will always be outclassed by future gear, that's kind of how these games work. That doesn't mean that current gear isn't worth getting however, as you kind of need good gear to get the future good stuff.
