So, you are a recruit still finding your way around the Lobby, unsure of which clerk to speak to first. Where do you start? Fear not, because you’re about to learn about a fundamental part of the game –ARKS MISSIONS! The goal of ARKS Missions is to guide you through the game at a natural pace, through completion of a series of assignments, or Missions. These Missions are accessed through the Main Menu and are not linked to story progression, so you can complete them at your own pace. Make sure to stay up to date on them so you’re knowledgeable about the game!
FIVE OF A KIND
There are 5 types of Missions listed when you access the ARKS Mission menu. Main Missions, Daily Missions, Weekly Missions, Limited-Time Missions, and Tier Missions. Main Missions are the standard assignments responsible for teaching you aspects of gameplay and guiding you through the game and do not reoccur once completed. Daily and Weekly Missions, as you might guess, change on a daily or weekly basis. Even if you find that some tasks reoccur every day or week, there is an assortment of different rewards offered, so be sure to keep an eye on them.
Limited-Time Missions are special Missions that you can only undertake while an event is running, and some can even be repeated multiple times during that event. Finally, Tier Missions are Missions you can complete to obtain Stars for raising your MISSION PASS tier. After obtaining 10 Stars, your tier will increase, and you will be able to redeem rewards from your Mission Pass. Tier Missions change weekly and are usually for things you would already be doing, such as Enhancing a weapon or eliminating a certain number of enemies.
MISSIONS VS. QUESTS
An important fact to remember is that Missions may require you to complete a QUEST. You can learn more about Quests here, but we’ll briefly explain them here to better differentiate them from Missions. Quests correspond to tasks undertaken or incidents played out on a certain planet, and they can appear under different names, like Expeditions, ARKS Quests, or Story Quests. The steps to complete these different types of Quests vary, so remember to always read them!
It is vital to see Phantasy Star Online 2 Missions as the overall objective of every ARKS Operative, and Quests are the path to fulfilling ARKS Missions. By following the objectives of ARKS Missions, you will gain full knowledge of the game in no time!
