PSO2: New Genesis balance adjustments coming next week
Sega has detailed several balance changes that it will be making to Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis’ classes next week.
The changes mainly include potency increases for several Photon Arts, such as Hunter’s Twisting Zapper and Cutting Layer, Fighter’s Spiral Drive and Quick Gash, Ranger’s Blaze Shot, Gunner’s Point Blank, and Braver’s Iris Gale and Frenzied Firework. Other planned adjustments include a range increase for Frenzied Firework and Lotus Lightning, a PP recovery increase for Fearless Attitude, and knockback reductions for Gifoie and Gigrants.
In addition to the above, Sega has bumped up the amount of experience sub-classes earn from 25 percent to 50 percent. Take a look at the full list of planned changes here.
As previously announced, the April 6th update also includes a level cap increase, new Photon Arts and Compound Techniques, Rank 3 versions of the Retem Combat Sectors, and a Rank 2 version of the Retem Purple Battledia.
Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is available now on Xbox and PC.
