View Full Version : Phantasy Star Nova: New class (Buster) and new weapon type (Halo)

I thought I might post this here since it seemed fairly interesting.
About the new class:

Phantasy Star Nova will also release with a brand new class! Busters (Bu) are an all-rounded class, which according to Shougai PSO (http://www.g-heaven.net/topics/2014/07/140702a.html), can equip weapons in all categories—including “Piles”. This class also has the ability to use skills from other classes.

I don't know how they're going to make any other class worth using if this class exists. If the SP system exists, I guess it could be a little balanced by being limited to the amount of SP of a single class. Alternatively, it could be replacing the subclass system.

About the new weapon type:

A new weapon category will be introduced called “Halos.” Halos are weapons that equip to the wrist of your right hand, but instead of photons, they fire Gran energy particles. In addition, they can produce “scaffolding fields” that lets players ascend higher to attack the Gigantes.


These remind me of Palms from Kid Icarus: Uprising. They kind of seem like Gunslashes in a way, maybe they could use all three attack stats with the Gran able to switch between at will. Think it's possible this weapon type could possibly make it's way to PSO2? Perhaps it'll be the weapon for the theorized ranged-tech hybrid class.
