    New Suggestion - Lead Admin role. Someone basically just under Larva who can do all the owner stuff without actually being the owner. They can sort stuff like events, mini-events, new items, hiring new mods, etc. This would mean the server could continue to improve without every decision being run by Larva. This would need to be someone trustworthy and active, and my vote would be @R-78

    How would a buff on Arrest Needle make it more balanced between ranger classes? A rifle range would even make it worse as it would mostly benefit Racast and Racaseal because of their paralysis native boost... Ramarl can support so she can be really useful to a team that has no force, and is also really strong solo as she can buff herself. Ramar has the best ATA, especially powerful for using Demon in Tower for instance. I agree Ultima is not well balanced: to me the class that require love the most is Humar, although many people would disagree with me and say Hunewearl is worse, but Rangers are definitely strong enough. But what do users want? As you can see, most people here disagree with that AN suggestion. It is basically making it a DM with higher speed but reduced ATP and no special. I personally think this could have been achieved last year if Ultima Bringer and Arrest Faust were better than they are. Or if Ten Years Blade was actually a drop from Anniversary item. That might make some drama though as some people could get really frustrated farming and not finding such item in the event given time. (like it happens with PGF) That is not going to happen, many people I know have tried PSO2 and most of them came back to PSOBB. PSO2 and PSOBB are totally different, so may PSOBB live forever! Your suggestion is quite foolish while those other recent ideas actually make sense. I believe that was a joke. I don't mind adding "good" items for Ultima though as far as they are not broken or replace any other already existing item. Bomb-chu is a pretty good example for it. Last month I tried to put this into my member title but it didn't fit xD << Shiida of the House Blue Burst, the First of Her Name, The Unburnt, Queen of the Pioneers, the Machines and the First Hunters, Queen of Ultima, Khaleesi of Gal Da Val, Protector of the Server, Lady Regnant of the Fifteen Lobbies, Breaker of Epsilons and Mother of Gol Dragons. >> Why not I'd say. If Larva wants, that is. But I need you to change the drop tables for it, I can't do that xD Anyways this is gonna wait because we should start Summer Event soon. Since you're here, I'm asking again, could I reopen the Momoka shop some day? ^^ I may be busy sometimes but I definitely have some spare time for our community, I am working on a new (and my last) quest by the way (gonna take me long).

    I personally like the idea of event-only end game items. It creates some exclusivity and makes me excited to play whenever an event drops. Of course it's probably way easier for me to say that since I got two PGFs last Christmas event lol On the subject of making another top tier item, I don't think every single item that comes out from now on should be the new meta. Besides didn't we just get Ten Years Blade? That thing is strong as hecc. I'm not even going to entertain the idea of Rangers being underpowered for obvious reasons others have already stated. PS: More communication from the server admin would be lovely <3 [/edit]

    Okay but, why? Why are ideas that will bring life to the server being vetoed when the community is small enough as it is? I seriously doubt it's because it'd be "too OP", because - newsflash - there are already a shitton of things in the game that are OP. And I'm going to add (because I have precisely one drum and I'm going to bang it) that I'm still pissed that my L&K idea posted a few pages back has basically been dropped because one person thinks it's overpowered. As if a HUcast can't dismantle an Epsilon in seconds anyway, as if the 80 hit demon weapons aren't going to kill it as soon as its opens it's shields. Having new items and old events (and hell, new events) is only going to help fight the stagnation that the server seems to be slipping into. Here's my suggestion to improve the server - get a few people together who can make events and want to add things to the game, and let them make stuff more interesting.

    My vote goes to R-78 as well, she is the most acive staff member by far since I have been here (2 years~).

    I'm not sure if this is a proper subject for this kind of topic but I didn't feel like making a topic just for that. I noticed it's been a long time we don't see any of the usual mini-events. Last one happened on December, the Holiday Battle Tournament. We also had the 20th April Day, but that's not exactly a mini-event. We also had the one I hosted on Valentine's Day, but we all know that event was meant for only a small portion of player base who wanted a challenge. By this time of the year we would have had the following mini-events: - Serverus Mini Event (to add special to weapons) - Momoka's Shop Mini Event (to redeem Item Tickets that dropped from Easter Eggs) - Another Mini-Event that was hmmm... cancelled/postponed? (I know about it since it has been discussed on #moderation of Ultima's Official Discord) None of them happened so far. Summer is near, and judging from what we already saw, we are not even sure if the meme mini-event that happens annually will happen. Here is a list of some events we don't see since a quite good time: - Hit Event (was it replaced by New Year Cards??, last one was on December 2017) - Lottery (replaced by New Year Cards, happened on February 2018) - Custom Mag Mini Event (last one happened on June 2017) - S-Ranks with Charge Special So I would like to suggest to bring back some of those mini-events, and also, I'd like to suggest some new kinds of mini-event: - An event where you can increase Hit percentage on some selected weapons above the 80% for a limited amount of time. - An event where you can max the DFP and EVP on Armors/Shields, like Wedding Dress, Red Ring, Virus Armor: Lafuteria, Neutron Skin and so on - A very special/unique mini event where the prize is a custom weapon of winners choice, must be something hard to accomplish. This is just an attempt to keep the server active and to give more variety of events other than the seasonal ones that always happen in the same way, every year.

    Someone linked an article in a Discord channel I'm in explains how data in PSO works. I'll paste relevant information down below. Some of this is already kind of widely known but there were still a few interesting bits in there. Basically what I gather from this is: Desync doesn't exist, since it never existed in the first place. It makes sense why DMC is worse on players with bad connection. Here's the article if you want to read it yourself: http://www.bumped.org/psublog/technical-concepts-of-phantasy-star-online-universe-and-portable-2/

    The year is 2025, green names have been on for 2 years. Summer event has been left on for a year, the 42069th Centurion/Battle has just dropped, lowering the value to 5 pds.

    If Rianov 5 had hell instead of dark every ranger would want one. The day that some item is created to make that happen I will be a happy man.

    And TJS's special is "not really the same kind of special" as Dark Flow's special, this was about a "free man's" equivalent which Ria5 (or Arrest Needle like @R-78 pointed out) fits pretty well. When someone compares apples to oranges you can not get hostile over a comparison of apples to pears so to speak.

    Hey everyone! Sorry about the absence! A lot is still happening, but I haven't stopped practicing, and I think I've gotten a lot better. I saved a lot of money to buy better creative equipment, and am now helping to develop a small game 😀. New art forthcoming! -Pthalo

    Um jizai with high hit is a dope choice for cca hunter.
  23. 3 points
    Slicer is a very valid option for hunter. 80 hit SJS is pointless when Ultima Reaper has more range and ATA, I'd only suggest it to people who have a bit more gear. Anyway, Arrest is really only helpful in Ep4. Charge Vulcans are also good when things are frozen if you don't have Psycho Ravens. Jizai is still pretty powerful, so it can't hurt to carry those, although 10 year blades with special are better. Master Sword, Crimson Sword, Sil Dragon Slayer, and TJS are all decent dps options for sword that aren't too expensive. although for CCA I don't find myself using a sword too much. You mainly want good mechs and a high hit hell weapon. Pyscho Ravens are what you obviously want but they are a bit expensive with stats. Hell Raygun, Hell Suppressed Gun, Hell Water Gun, and Asteron Striker are all decent choices but I'd personal go with Asteron Striker because it's cheaper and has more ATA than the other choices IIRC, plus the auto-aim is pretty nice for Gees and stuff you might find in CCA.

    Duja, this is probably the only specials available for Serverus to add to weapons: Serverus, what other weapons besides the Yasminkov series are you able to add specials to? I know there are quite a few other weapons that do not have specials, like the DB sabers and Flowen's Sword copies.

    Just to preface that none of this is aimed at insulting you Larva, I know you put a lot of effort into the game and Ultima wouldn't be here without you. I've been in a few communities before where the owner has, for whatever reason, become more inactive than they used to. In some cases, the owner has appointed someone to basically oversee all the normal runnings of it because nobody can play a game for years and not get burnt out on it. Most of the reason I brought up the Lead Admin idea was because of a suggestion I put in a while back (which I felt was reasonable if it was balanced properly - I offered to help with the balancing) which gained a bit of traction, but was ultimately ignored, and further up this thread where R-78 said she hadn't gotten responses to some event ideas she'd suggested. It's more of a suggestion to help the server run smoothly - give the lead admin powers to change all the game stuff, and to hire some mods to assist in all of this. Some of the more dedicated players could definitely help out, seeing as some of the staff disappear for months at a time.

    what's up with the votes lol. I been absent i know. I read time to time the comments in this topic, even the ones that aren't constructive at all >.> . And we do take in to consideration the users input. But suggestions is for us to see and take what we think is good. The all year round of the PGF wont happen any time soon and no it's not about the donations if that would be the case i can just add the PGF to the list of DTS. And im not the only one who take decisions here. GM's came up with the mini events, they just tell me their ideas and 99% of the times i say go a head. The true is that we don't have staff members who have the time to run mini-event every time. R78 is been trying to host a mini event since i don't remember when but she is been busy with other stuff. I'm sure she will do it when she has the time. Is the same for the rest of the staff, since is their time we can't force them or rush them in to trow a mini-event. About new items, tbh we been talking (staff members) about new items and we have get in the same point, OP weapons are out of the table for some time. We try to get some mid items and collectibles because we do believe we realized too many OP ones in the past, that's the reason we haven't make more of this.

    PSO2 has been accessible for years. This will not be the end of Ultima or psobb. Not a reason to make it so everyone in the game is DM spamming space lizards in the face.

    Only casts can use IF and PF. But even then human rangers have a lot of great weapons at their disposal, Psycho Ravens and MF for instance. AN is pretty great already too , and many more . Rangers have it the easiest in this game man . All the best weapons are ranger weapons and are easiest to kill the game with .

    This is a guide with a compilation of plans used for reaching Max Stats on your characters. The goal is to achieve max stats in certain attributes. These stats are divided into: ATP (Attack Points) DFP (Defense Points) MST (Mind Strength) ATA (Attack Accuracy) EVP (Evade Points) LCK (Luck/Critical Boost) In Ultima server every class have increased Max Stats Boost compared to vanilla PSO, that means old max stats plans made for vanilla PSO doesn't work on this server, since there would be an huge gap until reaching the max stat using the old plans. Ultima Boost: +100 ATP, +100 DFP, +100 MST, +10 ATA and +30 EVP boost for every class. That being said, there's a possibility you won't be able to max everything from certain classes (and it's not really needed to max all stats) due to material slot limitation. It is standardized to max ATP, ATA, LUCK (to achieve maximum accuraccy and raw melee attack power) as a priority for melee based classes, and/or MST, for nuking and force classes respectively, and lastly EVP and DEF when necessary and possible. Generally DEF and EVP aren't very important stats, so these stats can be ignored in most cases as armor and barriers will take care of protecting your character. EVP is interesting for increasing the damage output of certain Photon Blasts like Estlla (final damage output also counts the Synchro and IQ percentage, that means 120% Sync and 200 IQ is needed for maximum damage/buff/heal). DEF is important to decrease the final damage you are getting, discounting Deband and Jellen level, very useful for players that uses sacrificial weapons like Excalibur, Heaven Striker and Dark Flow. There are some classes can only have maxed stats by using special custom mags (obtainable via Donation, Mini-Events or using a Console/Ashura Mag Cell) that can reach stats normally not obtainable with standard feeding charts. Otherwise, you will need a PPP Mag (a 0 DEF mag that is a reward players get from completing Power Plant Plight - Episode II quest), useful for replacing the 5 DEF points with more important stats. ⚠️If you use a Console/Ashura Mag Cell/Ultima's Engine!/other mag cells on a PPP/Default mag that doesn't have all 3 Photon Blasts, you won't be able to add new PB's to the said mag, as it will not evolve anymore after becoming rare (green/yellow name). Kit of Mark 3 (refer to this website to understand how console mag evolution works) Ashura Mag Cell is obtainable as a random item from Easter Eggs and Christmas Presents Ultima's Engine! is obtainable on Anniversary Event as a drop from specified bosses ⚠️You can find details of all armor/units/mags/shields used for these plans on Ultima's official wiki. ⚠️You can build your own plan using Ultima's official calculator. There are multiples builds for each character, depending on your preference. Generally it is more efficient to choose for plans that requires less Units, so you can use other interesting units that may improve your gameplay (Centurion/Battle, V801, V502, Smartlink, PB/Increase, Centurion/Resist etc.) CREDITS Fyrewolf5 - for collaborating with an huge ammount of max stats plans, sharing his PSO knowledge and contributing for the creation of this guide Soly - for developing Ultima's Max Stats Calculator R-78 - for collaborating with several plans available on this guide TripleR - for making "0 DEF and HUcast" C/Arms PPP mag feeding guides JADE - for making the "0 DEF" guide for mind mags and collaborating with many useful tips Noob Saibot (a.k.a.

    Could you tell me why you're talking to me about buying something, are unable to make an offee yourself, so when I do make an offer myself you leave the conversation immediately, never to be heard from again? I think that is disrespectful and wouldn't treat someone that way, so please do tell me why.

    Honestly, with PSO2 looming on the horizon, there's never been a better time to make the broken gear much more publicly available. I wouldn't ask it to be a 1/100 PGF drop rate, but still, we've got less than a year before almost everything we've done here goes in a history book. I'd say going out with a bang beats dwindling to nothing because of waiting on a single event to come and go.

    If an event item requirement makes a weapon bad, does that also exclude Iron Faust, the Dark Weapons, and so on from being good? You could always suggest specific weapon upgrades. Name one staff member who can be proven by post or screenshot to actually want to spite any individual class. Human rangers are arguably the strongest due to RAmar accuracy and no-unit possiblity, and RAmarl's high MST plus Episode IV boss viability. They're sure as !@#$ not the weakest out there. If you don't use any of your Arrest needles, then you have a lot you could give to people who would have fun using them, right? There should be no reason casual players have no decent Needle-style weapon that isn't associated with an upgade to Arrest, I agree. I'd enjoy a Spread Needle -1 that's easier to farm. But when you do hit that point of a multi-target weapon with endgame worthy stats, that takes your output from 0 to 60 in a hurry. It makes sense for the line between casual and endgame weapons to require time, effort, and/or sacrifice.
