Potential Ability Compilation

in Phantasy Star Online 2, PSO2 Guides

With the recent “Potential Ability Unlock” (潜在能力解放) system added to DuDu’s Item Laboratory, you might be wondering what type of Potential Abilities can be unlocked on which weapons.  I had the same question too, but couldn’t find a list of Potential Abilities summarized anywhere… except on the Japanese PSO2 Wiki, which is of course, all in Japanese.

I went ahead and translated all the Potential Abilities that’s currently listed on the above wiki page, in case people might find an English Potential Ability Compilation useful.

About the Potential Ability Unlock (潜在能力解放) System

The “Potential Ability Unlock” (潜在能力解放) option is available at the Item Laboratory for rarity ★7 and above weapons that have been grinded to +10 status.  By paying a certain amount of meseta and Photon Spheres (obtainable from the Exchange Shop 交換ショップ), a weapon’s Potential Ability can be unlocked.

Weapons which have their Potential Abilities unlocked will be reset to +0 status (including their attack power), but they can be grinded to +10 again, after which the Potential Ability Unlock option at the Item Laboratory can be used again to “level up” the current ability.

Weapons with unlocked Potential Abilities will have a yellow icon, as well as a golden glow effect when equipping them.

Currently, the maximum level for Potential Abilities is Level 3.

A weapon with an unlocked Potential Ability will retain the ability even when later affixed with other abilities using the Special Ability Affix option at the Item Laboratory.  In other words, you don’t have to worry about losing a weapon’s Potential Ability if you plan on affixing additional abilities to it.

Note: You can also sell weapons with unlocked Potential Abilities in My Shop, in case you’re wondering.  Seen a few of them being sold for ridiculous prices already :D

I apologize in advance if there are any strange translations for the names of the Potential Abilities, since I’m not using the English Patch :D

**For the most up-to-date list of Potential Abilities, I recommend checking the Japanese Wiki Potential Abilities page.
