Pso2 Sega Id Guide

Ship and /vg/ Related Questions:

What ship/block does /vg/ play on?
/vg/ plays on both ship 2 and ship 4. Many ship 2 /vg/ players can be found on block 26 in the red room at any given time.
(http://puu.sh/9rT2Z/c9c3425ecc.jpg). Ship 4 /vg/ players are more difficult to find, but they can be found on ship 4’s blocks 11, 12, 13 (whichever has the highest population), or block 31.

Which ship has more English players?
Ship 2 undoubtedly has more English players and more members from both /vg/, reddit, PSO-World forums, and other places at this time. Ship 4 is comprised of mostly Japanese players, with older /vg/ players scattered among them.

What’s the difference between the ships?
Ship 2 of course has more English players, however that also comes with a bigger population spouting memes and being generally annoying by /vg/’s standards. They generally congregate on a few blocks but primarily block 20. Due to this the feelings of the Japanese players toward foreign-players are more negative than Japanese compared to other ships. You will however have many more English players to play with during the day, and if capable can play with Japanese players during the off-hours as well.
Ship 4 may not have as many English player. Blocks are much more quieter to nearly being silent. English players are scattered and it is advisable to know two basic Japanese phrases so you can party with most Japanese when necessary. Japanese players are very friendly with English players here. It is important to note that the English players on ship 4 are scattered in different time-zones. Ship 4 when the Japanese-population is included is one of the most highly populated and active ships with a great player-base, but will be dead during non-JP hours.

Is there a PSO2 /vg/ Steam Group?
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/pso2vg has been the /vg/ group since CBT.
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/edfship2 ship 2 team E.D.F. steam group
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/edfpso ship 4 team E.D.F. steam group
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/outerhavenpso2 ship 4 team Outer Haven steam group

Why is it downloading so slow?
The servers are in Japan. Plus many people might be downloading the patch. Also the patch at this point is 20GB+
You also can try “tweaker” http://arks-layer.com/index.php

What are the graphic requirements for playing/what is good on the benchmark?
As long as you aren’t using an on-board GPU you should encounter little problems. The benchmark is relatively inaccurate, most people will have little trouble running the game, even at higher settings, however you will encounter problems with certain visual effects that have high particle density due to poor optimization on SEGA’s part.

Can my character I made in the CC be ported over to the actual game?
If saved, just port over the character file at the creation screen.

Game Related Questions:

Will there be an English Localization?
Right now it’s JP only. Sega has announced an English Version, but it’s been delayed multiple times (stop asking). The SEA version also exists by Asiasoft which can be found here http://pso2.playpark.com/en/ Please do not discuss the SEA-version in the general thread at this team as there are next to no SEA (Southeast Asia) players in the general at this time. If you want to use the English patch, see the link in the OP.

Do I have to Pay 2 Play?
No the game is free to play and has a cash shop (called the AC shop). It is generally acknowledged as pay to look pretty, the largest convenience of paying lets you sell things on the game’s market, but that is the most significant advantage. There are other minor perks, but it is generally acknowledged you can be one of the best without dropping a dime.

What is the level cap?
The current level cap is 70.

How many free characters can I make?
Only two, but each character can play every class. Some races have certain stat advantages over others though. this will be elaborated in a stat section later.

Can I change my character past initial character creation?
You may change the eyes and eye color, accessories, body paint, voice, and hairstyle at any given time. Changing proportions, HAIR COLOR, or anything else will require 500 AC.

Can I subclass?
Yes, you need to reach Level 20 on a class then do a Client Order from Koffie to unlock it. You receive a portion of the subclass stats, all of its skill tree, and ability to use all of its abilities (this does not necessarily mean you can use any weapon that subclass can use). Certain weapons marked all-class or specified for other classes are allowed to be used. You can “craft” a weapon to make it able to be equipped by every class, but this comes with consequences (see crafting section/guide).

What class should I play?
Can’t really help you choose there. Gotta pick what feels right. Hunters, Bravers, and Fighters are the Melee classes, Rangers and Gunners the Ranged classes, and Force and Techer the Caster classes. You can change your class on your character in game, so feel free to experiment. However unless you are willing to pay you will only get one skill tree on each class. (Skill tree reset passes for ALL skill trees are handed out occasionally by SEGA).

So I can play every class effectively?
No. Unfortunately you only get a certain amount of skill trees unless you purchase more at a cost of 500 AC per, and you only get one MAG per character which cost an additional 300 AC per, so you can play one thing really effectively. Since you will likely want a 175 S-ATK, R-ATK, or T-ATK MAG, unless you pay you will be weaker in the other classes. The same applies to some classes which need multiple skill trees, particularly FO and TE for people who want to specialize in an element, you would need many skill trees to have every element.

I got Error Code , what do I do?
Refer with this list:
242: Can’t connect to server. Wait several seconds to login again.
601: No server response, server too busy to process or Account/Sega ID hasn’t been activated.

How do I add Friends? What does this menu option do? How do I switch Blocks?
Refer to this post on Bumped:
http://bumped.org/psublog/pre-open-beta-starter-guide-for-phantasy-star-online-2/

A bunch of people in the lobby are gray and untextured. How do I fix it?
When you’re In-Game, go to Options. Click the last tab then click the 2nd option. There will be a slider with the number 12. Crank it up as high as you can, it will cause more load and more lag in the lobby.

What does Ability/DEX do?
Ability/DEX makes the damage range smaller on your attacks. So instead of being big like 200-250 it becomes more along the lines of 240-250, this stat is effectively useless in most cases. Higher ranked weapons have a naturally smaller damage range built into them. This however becomes useful for “crafted” weapons which have large damage variance. (see craft section/guide)

How do people have Gaebolg? Or the Bouquet Rifle? Or look like Madoka? How can I?
Those items are items you get from promotional codes. Some of these are gotten from magazines like the Gaebolg, Bouquet Rifle was from Pre-OBT by completing a quest, SEGA often does collaborations with different studios and adds special items like the Madoka outfit to the game.

How do I trade?
Trading is a Premium feature. Despite that it still has limitations. In order to ghetto-trade, you can leave an item in someone’s gift box in a room or try to snipe one another’s wares on your respective shops for cheap amounts. There are some limitations to this, but beware if someone beats you to it.

There’s so much currency, what is what?
Meseta is your main currency. The yellow drops in-game is Meseta.
FUN is Currency you can use for a scratch card. You earn it by logging in for consecutive days or giving people good jobs.
AC is the Cash Option. Pay real money for it. Buys stuff in the AC shop and gets you special AC scratches.

What is OTP?
OTP or One-Time Password is a tool you can download and setup up for your PSO2 account, doing so will grant you 200 free extra storage spaces. This pretty much functions as an authenticator you will be prompted for when you login. Beware if you lose it, you are locked out of your account since you most likely connect from a foreign IP which SEGA will not work with. Additionally you can choose to freeze it, but doing so loses the extra OTP storage.

One of my questions wasn’t really answered? What should I do?
Make sure you read through the guides listed throughout the paste and below. We are making a great effort to provide the best and most relevant information possible. If you can’t find your answer there, feel free to ask on the thread and maybe recommend it be added to the pastebin.

Who’s to blame for all these shit changes to the pastebin?
Koishi and Liliana of Ship 4 primarily. Other people have been given credit where credit is definitely due.
