View Full Version : Well, nothing to do for a week but build up meseta...

Nov 24, 2006, 01:40 AM
I see nothing else really substantial to do from now until the update. If it is tonight (which there is like a 0.00009% chance), then I have plenty of stuff to blow my money on, and many new things to look at and experience.

But for the last few days, all of my buddies and I have resorted to soloing relics for nanocarbons or search far and wide for marselines, just to turn around and sell them for about 90% of the NPC stores. Yes, Moatoob was a nice diversion, but once the power of the PS2 was in display on the 2nd tier of the desert, I gave up on it. (basically, the PS2 chugs out maybe 5 FPS in the desert on 3+ man teams). The new relic on neudiaz is fun, but the monsters are the same. Nothing new to get excited about there. The minibosses on the robot level on Parum are fun, and the secret mission on Parum reminds me of PW4. But after a week of doing them, they become meaningless since I am maxed out in the hunter class (so they essentially become a meseta hunt).

This is just a small rant from a somewhat casual, somewhat hardcore player who has reached 45 and 25 on two characters, and has run out of things to get excited about. I believe the majority of players have experience at least 2/3 classes to the fullest, have many maxed PAs, have at least a lvl 40, and are just bored. I love this game, but to be released with 10% of the full game, and to wait 3 weeks to turn that into maybe 20% is laughable.

If you read all of that, here's a cookie.

I read it and agree.... Just saving up money and looking for 7 star boards is all im doing.

Nov 24, 2006, 01:48 AM
^_^/ yay a cookie!

i agree with you (although i wouldn't call you casual by any means), having only part of a game is bad enough; knowing you have only part of a game is worse.

Nov 24, 2006, 01:50 AM
I hit lv50, got 100k, then started an alt for a change of pace, shotguns rock

so yeah, get all the money you can while you can

Nov 24, 2006, 01:50 AM
I can understand slightly that people are bored. Lately I've been barely playing. Good news from that is I'm not actually "Bored" of PSU.

Nov 24, 2006, 01:52 AM
I just want the update... i got 260k meseta waiting...

Nov 24, 2006, 01:53 AM
Yeah, I'm more hardcore than casual, I will admit. But lately I've become very casual. I play for no more than 2 hours, and sometimes one session a day. I even went two days without playing because I got more joy out of replaying FFXII. I love this game, I enjoy playing it with buddies, and I like every aspect of it. BUT COME ON! I can only run the same mission with my maxed hunter, maxed spear and twin dagger PAs (only two worthwhile weapons IMO) for so long.

Nov 24, 2006, 02:02 AM
Im going to have to disagree on your choice of best weapons <.< 1 handed dagger has by far served me better then ANY other weapon. But yeah, i've considered quiting several times around because of the shear lack of content

Nov 24, 2006, 02:03 AM
Rememebr folks, it costs a few thousand to switch to those expert classes, so have the meseta ready. http://www.pso-world.com/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_eek.gif

Cost to change: 3,000
Cost for that new A Rank weapon: 100,000
Cost for new armor: 100,000
Upgrading current arsenal to show full damage potential of Xpert jobs: 0 to 500,000. (variable. Grinds, breaks, elemental %, etc)

Yeah. Better start saving now if you haven't already.

I'm a bit strapped for Meseta right now because I just dumped an ungodly amount into Force weps and grinds(lost about 50,000 from breaks alone... god), but because my Newman is so high I can equip all my weapons my Beast uses when I cap Force and move to Hunter, so i've no more financial obligations; save for 5,000 to change my haircolor to black, and 10,000 to max my Ranged mag sometime tomorrow. From tomorrow night and on, it's nothing but profit. I'll start mass producing the Shigga and Magga line sometime this weekend after I get a few more Neudaiz Relic Runs in. Life is good. Meseta should grow. I'm happeh. http://www.pso-world.com/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_eek.gif

I'm not grinding A's pass one http://www.pso-world.com/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_frown.gif I'm tooo scared.

Nov 24, 2006, 02:07 AM
Ill have probly 500k saved If they updates next week... =D.

Nov 24, 2006, 02:07 AM
This game has less content than DDO and 3/4 of the population repeats 2 missions over and over. >_<

Nov 24, 2006, 02:09 AM
Nono, I mean upgrading to B-Grade and grinding the shit outta them. C-Grade is fine for now, but the extra umph from B-Grades with the same grind can't be ignored.

C'mon. Let's not start with a gimpy showing on our Xpert jobs. http://www.pso-world.com/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_frown.gif

Nov 24, 2006, 02:12 AM
I'm gonna go find me some S ranks.

Nov 24, 2006, 02:35 AM
Time to farm relics...yippie?

Nov 24, 2006, 02:43 AM
Or, play story mode so we can stop marking spoilers as spoilers. >.>

You'll be done in 20 hours if you only do the story missions and no free missions. That's all I did. I only used Double Sabers in the final dungeon... was awesome. lol

Just a random opinion question, think weapons like Crea Sabers will go up or down in price after the expert class release?

Nov 24, 2006, 02:49 AM
Really matters if there is more board drops i think.

Nov 24, 2006, 02:55 AM
Unless the price on Copernia drops then the Crea-line probably won't drop either. I think I heard that boards to upgrade into Copernia will come with the next update, so perhaps their price will drop. Maybe.

I can't recall where I heard that, so I don't think it's very valid info to go by.

Nov 24, 2006, 03:00 AM
The only things keeping me going in this game are leveling my PM's combat level from 50 to 100 and maxing out the rest of my Bullet PA's.

If it weren't for Bullets taking so long to level I probably would not be playing at all this week. I have 3 PA's at level 20, 7 at level 18, and 2 at level 17.

It is going to take so long to get 30 Bullet PA's to level 30 but at least that challenge alone should keep me playing at least two more months.

Nov 24, 2006, 03:09 AM
And I thought I had a tedious job just trying to get to 50... LOL

Oh I just can't wait to see how much farther the synthesis % on the 6 and 7 star armor boards goes down when they come out. -_-;; 100 armor PMs suck. http://www.pso-world.com/images/phpbb/icons/smiles/icon_razz.gif

Nov 24, 2006, 03:34 AM
I did hear a rumor long ago that PM's max level would eventually be 200. If this is true then armor PM's won't so bad. This should hopfully bring Teroline synth rates and such to a 70% cap. Here's hoping anyway.

I've never heard of such a board.. but it wouldn't be that surprising, I've heard Crea weapons are only 30k~ on the JP server
