New Level 55 LimitNew Level 55 Cap Limit Unlocked

You can now level your characters up to the new level cap of 55, giving you stronger stats and more SP points to spend on new skills.  If you’re already level 50 before the update, there doesn’t appear to be any additional quest required to level to 55.

New Valentines Lobby

As you may have already noticed, the Arks Lobby has turned into a cute Valentines Day theme, featuring hearts, hearts, and more hearts!

The Valentines-themed lobby will be on display until 20 February, 2013.

The event NPC Xie (シー) is back again with time-limited Valentines event only Client Orders.  She can be found giving out the new orders at her usual spot, in front of the main Arks Lobby fountain.

Be sure to complete her Client Orders before she disappears on 20 February, 2013.

New Enemy: Love Rappy

A special Love Rappy (ラブ・ラッピー) has also been added as a time-limited Valentines event enemy.

Defeat these cute little Rappies and you may find special Rare weapons, including Pink Rappy Fan (ピンクラッピーファン), Love Rappy Cannon (ラブラッピーキャノン), and even the new 10☆ rod, Pico Pico Hammer (ピコピコハンマー).  All these rare weapons can be equipped by all classes.

*Although the Pico Pico Hammer is 10☆, the drop rate appears to be pretty high, since I managed to get 3 drops in a row from killing 3-4 Love Rappies :3

New Naura Sisters Emergency Quest & Interrupt Event

The Naura Sisters are back again to sell their assortment of cakes, as well as the all new Valentine Choco (バレンタインチョコ)!

They will appear in special Interrupt Events during normal quests, as well as in a new Emergency Quest called “Chocolate’s Journey” (チョコレートの行方), where you’ll have to save all the heroines in Phantasy Star Online 2 from danger!

Improved Over End (オーバーエンド) Hunter Photon Art

As covered in a previous post about Over End (オーバーエンド) improvements promised by the SEGA development team, this popular Hunter Photon Art has been improved in this update as requested by fans.

Improvements include a quicker execution (swing time) of the initial 2 swings, as well as a significant increase in overall attack power.

To compare before and after improvement: Level 50/50 Hunter Fighter (same weapon/units/stats for before & after)

Before: 4-6k with each of the initial 2 swings of Over End on the Ruins boss Zeshreida’s core (while having Weak Bullet applied).  Final hit dealt about 11k+ damage (again with Weak Bullet applied).

After: 10-11k with each of the initial 2 swings on Zeshreida’s core (with Weak Bullet applied).  Final hit dealt from 36k and more.

Unfortunately, you still cannot cancel the Over End animation mid-execution with a dash.  However, the improvements above alone make Over End a much, much better and useable skill than before.

Before the update, one might argue that you could actually do more damage with less risk just spamming Sonic Arrow and swinging in between hits to build PP instead of switching to Over End for boss weak points.  Now though, there’s a reason to switch to Over End because of it’s greatly increased attack power.

What do you think of the latest PSO2 Valentines updates?  Don’t forget to do Xie’s Client Orders and get your hands on the Sweet Honey Valentine AC Scratch items you want before the event is over!
