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.
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.
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.
Episode 4 is upon us and after a small delay, we have our first major UQ of EP4: Phantasm Yamato. When I played JP, I’ve actually never done the OG version of Yamato and only done the revised stronger version that was released at the end of EP4 (fan translated as “Quintessence of Steel”). Without further adieu, lets jump right into it.
