Wassap guys! It’s been a long while and I know that you’d be expecting me to return with stories of whether I’m graduating or not but you know what? TOO BAD. Because I’ve been on PSO2 so much, I’ve got too many screenies and it’s kind of pissing me off.
So… What have I been up to?
Besides spoofing blockbuster shows and cloning myself, of course.
Taken 1 month into PSO2:
Basically, I got my very first AC outfit and it marked the start of my expenditure on PSO2. I also developed a certain love of taking screenshots and wrecking havoc in other player’s rooms. PSO2 also manage to have me stay up all night doing a crap load of stupid things such as:
Trying to balance on the storage terminal:
Leading a Lagomite army:
Taking Scandalous of my team members:
Filling people’s rooms with really useless stuff like:
While questing, I managed to find a Mesetan(?) which is literally a huge floating Meseta monster that doesn’t really do much damage but gives you alot of money.
And as my insane hardcore gaming progressed, I managed to take nice (or at least more interesting) pictures while I was in normal or Urgent quests:
12 man PSE Burst:
Seriously couldn’t see anything for a good 5 seconds. The only thing you can do is to randomly lock on to something and shoot/attack away.
Northern Lights Weather:
I really liked this picture. As you can see, I changed my outfit again, courtesy of a generous online friend. Woooooooo~
Story time, Crazy antics and really bad luck:
There was this one time I was happily running around Skyskape WHEN SUDDENLY,
A wild Fhan Jee appears.
WHAT IS A FHAN JEE?
A Fhan Jee chases after you or a certain player in the map and kidnaps you to another side of the map. You will be confined in a dome and monsters will start spawning inside and around the dome trying to killing you. Naturally, your task is to not die before your friends run over to bust you out from the outside.
Basicall, if you’re a lowbie, it’ll feel like this:
But if you’re geared enough, you’d be like:
If you think about it, a Fhan Jee is PSO2’s version of monster rape. Just saying.
This isn’t really a bad thing for me because most of the time I don’t struggle in trying to stay alive in the dome. If anything, most people would be chasing after the Fhan Jee, begging it to take them but alas, the red swirling toilet bowl rape monster only had eyes(?) for me then.
I was already at the max level cap, so bring it on, right?
What happened next was truly terrifying in itself. I’m not sure if you can make out anything, but I’m gonna leave this picture here for abit.
When I say dome, it isn’t really big to start with. What happened was what once in the dome at the other side of where my party members were on the map, a Quartz Dragon crashes into my dome.
Till this day, I wish my reaction was:
‘Gahd, QD, gtfo of my dome.’
Instead I’m in RaidCall like:
And while I was frantically dodging and rolling around within the dome, fishes are biting my rather under-geared self and dealing 200damage to my pathetic 700hp and I’m like:
THEN it start flippin’ storming and making me flinch in between my rolls and I’m like:
And there my party-mates were, laughing at me through Raidcall and taking screenies from the outside.
EVENTUALLY, they came to save me and we didn’t fail the code because a teammate was healing me from the outside (as he laughed, mind you).
So we were in an Urgent Quest one day and we came across a Bayze.
WHAT IS A BAYZE?
A Bayze is supposedly a ball of dark matter that forms randomly as an Emergency Code in a map. The longer you leave it, the bigger it grows and eventually, it explodes, covering the entire map in red rain that is poisonous and very damaging. While the Bayze grows, it can damage you. It also can damage you with it’s tentacles that come up from the ground.
I know what you’re thinking. A Bayze is a tentacle monster from Japanese Hentai.
ANYWAY, we like ‘growing’ the Bayze because if we manage to defeat it at it’s last stage of growth, there was a chance that a some sort of boss monster, Ragne or Gwanada, would spawn from within the Bayze.
I’m nor sure if I regret taking this picture or not because a few seconds after, I got one-shotted by a random passing-by Dagan (mob). But at least I can show you guys what Red Rain looks like.
I hit level 50 cap on both my main and sub class within the first two and a half weeks
(because I have no life) and decided to start farming Xcubes for augmentation.
I saw the exp requirement for an xcube (1.1million Exp) and nearly died.
Unfortunately, I didn’t and now I’m forced by my perfectionist side to max everything out or make my equipment as imba (pro/high level/overpowered) as it can go.
How I trained from level 40 to 50:
Initially, I had stored over 50 quests from Franca(Mob drop Quest), Cressida(Loser/Pebble quests), Girad(Rare mob) and Emeline(Weather Quest) but it only brought me up 4 levels, which I thought wasn’t so bad until I realized that the EXP from Hard to Very Hard mode wasn’t exactly a ‘one step for me, a huge step for man kind’ kind of thing.
The only thing I can tell you is that you’ll only be motivated to grind from 40 to 45. After which, everything after is a huge grind fest. Most of the time, I was waiting around for Urgent Quests and helping out team mates.
Or maybe taking random photos like so:
Enter Rie and Zan.
Forever everywhere together, mainly because everyone has lives and we don’t.
He’s my lobby, study and grind buddy when it comes to PSO2. Like, totally my bestfriend right now.
I mean, tell me we aren’t the most photogenic characters in the whole of PSO2 right?
Meeting the ENDGAME:
When I talk about the ‘ENDGAME’ with my buddies in real life, it refers to a guy who’s actually going to succeed in tying me down (again and for good) but when I saw End Game here, I mean my End Game weapon. That’s right, I managed to get my
That’s right, Milla, just me and you, forever and ever, babe.
It’s gonna be really hard to upgrade and augment but
Virtual love moment over, I managed to get Milla after quite a few runs with Falz Elder, a new Urgent Quest that doesn’t appear alot so Milla is really hard to come by.
To get to Elder, you need to finish one Falz Arms map.
Arms maps are rather tricky because it requires you to kill the exactly same mob when there are 4 identical ones running and flopping the map. Occasionally, they merge together to form what looks like a train that rushes around the map. One blind spot is directly under where the Arms merged. It’s called the curling spot. I do run for the curling spot alot but get killed by lag or if I’m off the spot by even a step.
When we finish Falz Elder, my team allows one person to break the gem, most of the time with either a Vraolet or Nyoibo due to their potentials. Guld Milla drops from this stage’s gem.
After Milla, I discovered Darker’s Den from Time Attack (VH mode), where your gateship literally crashes into a nest or world of D-arkers (they’re the bad guys) and you get this really rad cutscene with you in it.
But seriously, the map itself was rather hard and confusing to do the first time round, especially when I was barely geared at that time. Gradually, I got better at it and could lead my team through but wow, farming for the map itself was tiring as fudge and I only attempted doing so on Fridays while I’m boosted with coffee.
I’m not even going to lie now, but most of my time spent on PSO2 now is spent slacking off or what we call ‘lobby points’. It doesn’t even make grammatical sense.
‘What are you doing now?’
‘Idk. Lobby points.’
The next few screenies are of really random things my team and I do and I will attempt to caption them all:
^Having drinks because Dadu and Monica cheated us of our money during upgrading and augmenting.
^Dancing around that one guy who’s afk-dancing in the lobby.
^When suddenly, a Rappy army.
^Stripping for augmentation money.
^You shall not get a higher trick-dart score than me because I am the sexiest distraction alive.
^Cages in quarters because Rappies.
^If you ain’t got it.
^If you do got it.
^ Featuring Rie as ‘Side Chick’
^Featuring Zan as ‘My Bitch’
^ I actually didn’t know that characters could blink and it’s so human, I don’t even know anymore. Either way, it’s a nice picture.
The day I got so bored, I got married:
It was the best marriage ever.
THE TEAM NOW:
Currently, we’re Ranked 4 in Ship 2! We’ve come a long way since Rank 16(?) at a strength of 82 of us!
I’m not really sure how we got here but we are and after so many months of gameplay, I’m so happy to have close online friends again :>
I love you guys~
