UQ: Castrum Demonica Madness

I must admit, I’m not a super big fan of Buster Quests, which is why I avoided making a post on the last BQ UQ we had: Castrum Demonica Hostility. That one was just pretty much a Grade 3+ BQ with more chance of accidents and 2x Hyunal spawn. Even though the battle order of this UQ still follows the tradition BQ format, there are a few changes I’ll try to cover in this post. Since there isn’t a lot of new mechanics, this post will be shorter than usual.

Ciki’s Galleria 11/18/20

Hello all! I’m starting a new series of galleries that will showcase some of my outfits. Since I seem to change them a lot, I thought it’d be a good idea to showcase them here before I put them back in the closet for who knows how long… Most of these I just make on the fly to get some SG from the outerwear/outfits. I’ll be listing the pieces that make the outfit with each set! Click the images for a closer look. Hope you guys enjoy. (:

Weapon Camo: Wilke Shente

Today we’ll be taking a look at the weapon camo Wilke Shente. This is one of the few rare multi-weapon camos that camos every single weapon except for harmonizers. Similar to the Dalus Reigen, Wilke Shente will drop from the 4-man Omega Apprentice trigger (The City of Sand).

Weapon Camo: Dalus Reigen

I’ve decided to start a new segment showing off some of the multi-weapon camos. In the game preview, you can only see the sword or whatever the “first” camo’d weapon is and unable to preview any other weapons. I’ll try to show some of the more expensive weapon camos so people will have a better idea of what they look like before spending a lot of Meseta. Today we’ll be looking at the Dalus Reigen.

UQ: Queen’s Nightmare Earth Depths

With all the boss UQs being rapid fire released, this week we have Omega Apprentice in Queen’s Nightmare: Earth Depths. Before going any further, I’m pretty sure this takes place in the Omega so why on earth (no pun intended) is it earth depths? In any case, this is UQ takes us to the depths of a cave in the desert of Epyk to search and destroy Omega Apprentice. As with other EP5 UQs, there’s also a 4-man version in the form of a trigger drop again. I’ll be talking about the UQ as a whole and then drops at the end.

October 2020 Arks Hour

PSO2 Global continued their segment of Arks Hour on their twitch channel again in October so it seems like this will be a regular segment going forward. I know the coverage for this post comes quite a bit after when the actual stream. I still wanted to provide a quick summary for people who do not want to watch the one hour stream itself.

UQ: Wisdom Incarnate

As we are rolling through the all the EP5 content, we have our first reskinned UQ with Omega Falz Luther. Instead of a red color themed stage and boss, we now have a purple themed one. A 4-man trigger was also released exclusively as a drop from the 12-man UQ itself. Most of Luther’s stuff will be identical to the old version. As usual, I’ll talk about the fight itself as well as the drops afterwards.

Oh yeah. Last week, I have completely omitted talking about the Castrum Demonica: Hostility UQ as it was pretty much a standard 3+ Buster Quest which I figured everyone already knows how to do and is completely bored to death by it.

UQ: Crimson Fellwyrm Over the Castle

On the launch of EP5, we got our first UQ on the second week with the Crimson Fellwyrm (fan translated as Crimson Castle Crushers in JP). During my time playing PSO2 JP, I never really got to do this UQ when it was still in the schedule and only did it a few times after they cycled it out nearing the end of EP5. I’ll try my best to go into the details of this UQ and then provide some advice from my own runs on the 4-man party version.

September 2020 Arks Hour

Global PSO2 has started a livestream similar to JP’s PSO2 Station called ‘Arks Hour’. It was streamed on PSO2’s twitch channel on 9/29 from 2 pm to 3 pm PDT. The GMs and I guess community manager just talked about upcoming contents, campaigns, and scratches. So in this episode they featured the EP5 release. At the end we got an item code for some goodies in the game.

UQ: Imposing Iron Assault

As EP4 finally draws to a rapid close, we have our last UQ of EP4 as well: dubbed by many simply as the Yamato rematch. This UQ most features the same fight with the original Yamato but with Vegas mobs in the first part and a more aggressive and difficult AIS in the second part. This will be a relatively short post as I’ve already talked about Yamato in a post last month. In addition, like Deus, a 4-man party version of the AIS only fight is available after completing the initial UQ in the first 30 minute block.
