Thanksgiving in PSO2!

It’s Turkey-time! Prepare yourselves (and your stomachs) for the Thanksgiving Event, coming November 11th!

news item image

Happy Thanksgiving, Arks! It is time to show our gratitude for those who fight to protect others, and naturally that includes operatives. The Ship has been decorated, special treats will be offered, and new holiday-themed items are available! Without further ado, let’s get into the content of the THANKSGIVING EVENT, starting November 11th!


 

A CORNUCOPIA OF DECORATIONS!

If you’re hungry for Thanksgiving décor, then you’re sure to be stuffed after visiting the Shopping Plaza of your Ship. ARKS HQ has really flown the coop with the Thanksgiving theme, and Rappy takes center stage (though in this case he’d probably prefer not to.) Oh, and the Medical Bay would like to remind operatives to not eat any of the display items, regardless of how good they look.

Ends:  (beginning of maintenance)

 


A FESTIVE (AND WELL-TIMED) GATHERING OF WINGED ONES      

A situation has arisen where winged creatures and Falspawn are gathering en masse on the Floating Continent of Amduskia. Little do they know, this is not the best time to be encouraging an ARKS hunt, as Xia has quite a few mouths to feed for her upcoming feast. It may be a good idea to stop by and visit her in the Shopping Plaza before heading to the Gateway ship to take on this quest. Operatives are to head to the Floating Continent and determine the reason this flock is gathering. You’ll have 30 minutes to complete your investigation, and each enemy defeated will reward you not only with combat experience, but with points, with 1126 Quest Points being required for quest completion. 

 

Due to the somewhat uneven terrain, ARKS HQ has deployed a few Catapults and Dash Panels that we had left over from the Summer training event. When at a Dash Panel, pressing “E” will temporarily enable high-speed movement to cross terrain. Touching another Dash Panel will extend the effect. You can jump or kick while under the effects of the Dash Panel, and the kick can be powered up 3 times by chaining the use of Dash Panels. Catapults will send you soaring in the direction indicated. Be sure to explore every inch, as some Catapults may take you to otherwise unreachable areas! So get out there and pluck some feathers so you can get your TURKEY LEG weapon camo, which works for all weapons!

GRATEFUL XIA

Xia wants to make sure that those on Fleet Oracle feel appreciated during Thanksgiving, so she’d like to host a feast for all! The problem is, she’s a bit short on event staff, and could use an extra pair of hands. There are a few errands she’d like for you to run, and in exchange you’ll receive THANKSGIVING BADGE 2020, which can be used to purchase some fun Thanksgiving-themed items and RISING WEAPONS BADGE 4! These badges can be exchanged as currency for weapons and other items on the second floor of the Shopping Plaza. As if all this wasn’t good enough, Thanksgiving Badge 2020 can also be used to purchase Roasted Turkey! Roasted Turkey is a consumable item that provides a +50% Triboost effect for 10 minutes! Be sure to get your fill, because these items have an expiration date!

Ends:  (beginning of maintenance)

 

Featured Reward



Remember, in sufficient number, Rising Weapons Badge 4 can be exchanged in the Shopping Plaza for materials needed to create a ★15 weapon!

 

 


TURKEY (RAPPY) LEG, ANYONE?

Rappy loves Thanksgiving too! Unfortunately, his costume reminds us that he is a feathered fowl. Those who enjoy the cuteness of Rappys definitely won’t be disappointed! Don’t let that cuteness stop you though, since these special Rappys have a chance to drop almost any of the Rappy Suit Mini outfits!

LIMITED-TIME ARKS MISSIONS

In the process of completing campaigns or gathering materials, don’t forget to take a look at your ARKS MISSIONS List every now and then, but especially for this event. ARKS HQ has added a few extra objectives for operatives to complete, and the rewards range from some Roasted Turkey to Thanksgiving Badge 2020, which can be used to purchase items from Xia’s special shop. If you need a refresher on ARKS Missions, check out this article.

 

 

ADDITIONAL CONTENT COMING NOVEMBER 11TH!

 


SURVEYING A PARALLEL WORLD

Perhaps the most extreme Ultimate Quest that any operative can undertake, SURVEY: REMNANTS OF A PARALLEL WORLD is not for the faint of heart. Only senior-ranking Arks (those above level 80 on both Main and Sub – Class) should attempt this mission, as it is to be done solo. That’s right, on your own, as the area is too unstable to allow for greater numbers of operatives. Your supplies will be limited such that Scape Dolls or Half Scape Dolls won’t save you. When the 15 minute time limit is up, or should an operative become incapacitated, participants will be extracted and the quest will be considered a failure. You’ll have 10 attempts at this quest each day, with the counter resetting at 5:00 AM (PST). A successful quest still consumes one attempt. Remaining, unused attempts do not transfer over to the next day.

 

Your mission briefing is fairly simple. Leadership has received signals coming from this specific sector of Alternate Dimension: Omega, and their magnitude indicate that the entity responsible is equal to the strength of the Profound Darkness. Initial probes have shown that the area is layered, with a stronger enemy present on each successive level. You will not be able to traverse the levels freely though, as defeating the prime enemy on a level will result in an ARKS extraction for a medical evaluation, mandated by HQ.

 

Powerful Augments

The energy of the sector seems to have influenced the items available to those who explore it, and some cursory explorations have yielded the following.

Featured Rewards



PHANTASY STAR UNIVERSE(S)

Ethan and Karen have taken their interplanetary patrolling to another world, and that’s not just a saying – they really did – since they wound up on Fleet Oracle. They’re going to need some assistance in finding a way back to their world, and so far they have no idea where to start looking. As they’re unfamiliar with the hazards of the ARKS sphere of influence, they’re going to need an escort, and you’re just the operative to do it! Not only will you have the pleasure of their company (permanently, as you can receive their Partner Cards), but you may also wind up with some weapon camos too! Check out what you’ll receive by completing their Client Orders!

15 STAR WEAPON EXCHANGE

That’s right, they’re here – well, at Zig’s Shop actually. ARKS HQ is proud to announce the availability of 3 types of 15 weapons; the OPHISTIA SERIES, the TRAILBLAZER XION SERIES, and the ATLAS EX SERIES. In order to acquire one of these weapons, you have a short list of materials to procure, though some of the items may require an upgrade of their own. After all, in order to get something, you have to give something, and in this case it’s a template from which Zig can work. Each series requires the submission of one (or more) 14 weapons from specific weapon series that are enhanced to +35 Enhancement Level. These Enhancement Levels were not achieved in vain, however, as the resulting 15 weapon will retain them. For more information on the specifics of 15 weapon exchange at the Zig Shop, check out this article.

 

 

We hope you’re as excited as we are to share the Thanksgiving spirt! So pass the Volcanic Caves Pumpkin pie and dig in!
