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.

UQ: Deus Esca, Maker of New Epochs

Once again we have another 2 part UQ with the recent release of Deus, one of the biggest UQs of EP4. Back in its time and even now, this was heralded as one of the coolest boss fights of PSO2. Compared to all previous UQs, this is probably the lengthiest so far. In this post I’ll talk about the 12-man MPA version and the 4-man party version after.

UQ: Barren Blossom, Corruptor of All

In the middle of EP4, we have our first revisted UQ: The Profound Darkness, buffed up from the original EP3 version. Along with its MPA version, we also have our first solo UQ as well, dubbed Barren Blossom, Butcher of Light. We can definitely see Sega picking up it’s pace through EP4 by squeezing multiple boss EQs within one maintenance cycle. Most information I will talk about will be applicable to both the MPA and the solo version unless otherwise specified.

Flowering Spring

When you’re playing PSO2, it can be Spring all year round if you’re in the right place. Aki and I have decided to do beautiful Japanese Spring themed outfits with the abundance of relevant costume options we’ve gotten in the game recently. I personally got inspired by the Maidenly Ogre Hair, so let’s get right into it!

Ciki’s Spotlights: Sweet Youth

Hi everyone! This week I’m featuring something more anime-esque because of the huge flow of schoolgirl outfits. Yes, yes, more modern outfits because of EP4, but I confess that I quite love a modern look while playing PSO2… They’re just so cute! She’s your typical klutz and it just seems everything is against her.

UQ: The Lunar Phantasm Matriarch

The second EP4 boss UQ is here this week. We went from the coast of Japan straight up into the moon to engage Esca Falz Mother. I cannot stress the amount of headache the clunky ridroid portion of this UQ has caused me in the past but after a few more runs here on NA, it didn’t feel too difficult.

Ciki’s Spotlights: Tokyo Streets

Hey guys! I’ll be starting these short Spotlight posts to feature a look I’ve created. This week I’m showcasing a streetwear look for a rebellious tomboy with the relatively new Tokyo map. She’s a little rough around the edges so watch out!
