Destroyer of History

The Thing which Destroys History, the November update has been revealed, with a couple of features (I much prefer the topic titles name for the update, which is why its there :p)

Darkers den/ruins will be playable, complete with a new boss, with part one of this release (7th or 14th of November I'm guessing). I've been reading that the few lucky people who've played this area have found it very hard and a nice step up in difficulty from the previous areas. How it gets released, we'll have to see (Orignally - Tundra, mines and floating continent where hard-mode only when they first launched. We'll have to wait and see if darkers den is very hard only and yes, I know that image shows lv30 [Normal mode] but this is sega and it means nothing)



The new boss - Zeshreida


Now, for other news:

They are implementing a new system after you hit the level cap called 'Expedition cube' (Or just excube for short). This new system allows you to spend exp you gained after the cap on new items, such as mag devices, 10 star slot units and much more. Two items that have been revealed are “PM Device / Ajax” and “Rear / Rappy Feather”

A photon drop trader is (finally!) being added - allowing you to trade your mass collection (I have 462 of them -.-) of PD's for items/units/weapons. More information in this will be released soon, ill update when I hear more.

Note: I'm not sure if PM Device = partner machinery device, so it changes your mag into one from PSU when used. Its a pretty safe assumption, but don't hold out for it - If I hear for sure that it is, then you'll know for sure that it is :p

Some more details about the update, hazzah!

The update launches on the 7th of November, with the ruins being playable from lv25 in normal (Same level as floating continent, although I will assume the level range of the creatures inside is slightly higher)

If you noticed the pillar/statue type object in the screenshot below, if the darkers infect them (by hitting them, I guess xD) they become corrupted and amplify the power of other nearby darkers - by how much, is it reverseable, what's its range? I don't know yet

PD shop, afew item prices have been made public - nothing that special yet imo: (Note - you can find both PDs and PC's, PC's are insanely rare compared to PD's however, i have 6pc's and 492pd's)

1 Photon Sphere = 10 Photon Crystals
1 Photon Sphere = 99 Photon Drops
1 Photon Crystal = 10 Photon Drops
5 EXP+25% (30 mins) = 1 Photon Sphere
1 EXP+75% (30 mins) = 1 Photon Sphere

The EXcube information has been updated aswell - You have to be at the upper level limit of the game to collect exp towards it (Not say, lv30 with both the levelcap quests still to do). When you acquire EXP equivalent to one class level, you receive several EXCubes - some prices for items below:

3 Rare Drop Boost + 250% = 2 Excube
1 Grind Success + 30% = 1 Excube
1 Add ability success + 30% = 1 Excube
1 PB Device (Any - change your mag's pb with this device) = 10 Excube
9/10 star slot units with lucky rise + 2 other lv3 ability's = 6 Excube
5/6 star slot units with lucky rise + 3 other ability's = 3 Excube

No worrys - with another post comes more news, not so much update related but game balance related, the game developers are looking at the following to change soon(tm) - based on feedback from the players since October.

Request: Lower the experience requirements for levels 41+
Staff’s comment: Requirements will be lowered. Measures for the experience points to not go to waste in case of already high level characters will be necessary.
Implementation date: Beginning of November

Request: Lower the number of items required for unlocking the level cap
Staff’s comment: Number of required items will be lowered.
Implementation date: Beginning of November

Request: Increase the appearance rate of Rare Monsters
Staff’s comment: The appearance rate of Rare Bosses and Monsters will be increased.
Implementation date: Beginning of November

Request: Increase the drop rate of Rare Items in Very Hard Quests
Staff’s comment: Drop rate of 7-9 star items will be increased. Additionally, since the appearance rate of Rare Enemies will be increased, the drop rate of 10 star items will be automatically increased as well.
Implementation date: Beginning of November

Request: Make Techers stronger
Staff’s comment: Performance of Wands and Techer specific skills will be increased.
Implementation date: Beginning of November

The second exp reduction i imagine would mostly effect lv47-50 exp totals, with a small decrease from 41-46. The rare items drop rate buff is very welcomed, as well as the rare bosses appearing more often - cant wait to get blade dance/demo comet combo for the fighter

Edit: Copy and pasted from: http://bumped.org/psublog/pso2jp-bal...-and-december/ - my post was far too long and this sums up the major points nicely


----------------------------------------------------------


Part one of the patch lands tomorrow for Japan, yay! with the following updates:

Ruins: VH 42+ / H 35+ / N 25+
Other VH level requirements will be lowered.
11/7: Rare Boss Appearance Rate UP tenfold! (Should be ~ 1/14 now)
11/7: Items required for the Level Cap CO will be adjusted.
11/7: 7 ~ 9 star item drop rate adjusted.
11/7: Techer improvements
11/7: Some 10 star weapons will be adjusted.
Tomorrow’s update is 1.6GB

Some details about part two, all be it... not many useful ones but hey..

Destroyer of History Part 2:

Falz Hunar Boss! (In a story quest.)
New Mag Evolution Device
Female variation of Male Outfits
Arks Ceremonial Lobby (until 12/5)
Arks Trainee Costumes
Arks Flag Ceremony Scratch

Heres a link to the part two promotion video: http://youtu.be/HF9bcSjzMhc I'd like to kindly ask WTF that thing is at the end O_O;


----------------------------------------------------------


Multi-posting like a boss

Part two of destroyer of history is going to launch on the 21st during normal downtime - with the features above and more, hopefully.

Heres a video of me and a team-mate killing the ruins free field boss in very hard - first time seeing it and attempting it, so it wasn't all bad, right? http://youtu.be/2-MwbNQqGLY

The SEGA ID Registration page is blocking access to those outside of Japan, however this has not affected the SEGA ID Management page which still accepts users outside of Japan. To get around this, you can just use a Japanese proxy to access the pages fine.

In addition, the level required to access the very hard modes has been decreased to the following:

Forest quests/free fields now require lv40 (Down from lv41)
Cave quests/free fields now require lv40 (Down from lv41/42)
Desert quests/free fields now require lv40 (Down from lv42/43)
Tundra quests/free field now require lv41 (Down from lv43/44)
Mines quests/free field now require lv41 (Down from lv43/44)
F.continent quests/free field now require lv41 (Down from lv44/45)
Ruins quests and free field require lv42

Aswell as the exp needed from lv41-50 taking another huge drop (Another 75%, roughly). After logging into the game the day the patch landed, I jumped 3 levels in one kill (from 43-46) because of the reduction.

Still nothing on the English version! its starting to really annoy me somewhat. I'd of thought they would of said.. something since pax by now, surely? D:
