- Exchange Anniversary Event Seasonal Points (earned by completing Limited-time Quests and dispatching enemies) for cosmetics and more at the Seasonal Point Exchange Shop.
- Run the Limited-time Quest, Drill: Dazzling Chaos Suppression Op, to your heart’s content without needing to use Battle Triggers!
- Check out the new 5-star Rarity Dark Element Obscura Weapon Series!
So, I think if asked to, I can finally pronounce the name of the Weapon Series (Kukuhroziat) best-suited for running the newly introduced Geometric Labyrinth in PSO2 NGS (I did have to look up the spelling, however.) Fortunately, the PSO2 NGS First Anniversary Event, which started May 11, brings a new Elemental Weapon Series that is much easier to say (and spell) – the Obscura Weapon Series. Weapons from this series will drop in the new Limited-time Quest Drill: Dazzling Chaos Suppression Op and can be exchanged for Seasonal Points at the Seasonal Points Exchange Shop, which will be staffed by Xitre, as she has returned from her vacation. The Anniversary Event also includes changes to the décor of Retem and Central City, possible sightings of the Anni Rappy, and additional gathering materials in the form of Annivesartichoke and Randomite. What is most exciting for me, however, is the introduction of new Trials in all Sectors that feature a new enemy – Captan. This enemy reminds me of a rare enemy that I occasionally encountered in PSO2, Mesetan, which dropped oodles of Meseta.
If you’re intrigued by my mention of the new Obscura Weapon Series, then I’d suggest your first task be to gather Seasonal Points so you can purchase a pre-enhanced weapon from this Dark Element series at the Seasonal Points Exchange Shop. That way you’ll be able to use it right away without needing to sacrifice all of your saved +EXP Gold and Silver Primm Swords in order to enhance it. In addition to Obscura weapons, Xitre also has a fine selection of Augments, Stamps, and some Weapon Camos of past Elemental Weapon Series. You can even nab some Star Gems from her as well, so maybe you’ll get the items I’ve been fiending for from the Refined Form 2 SG Scratch Ticket collection (Punkishly Vivid, why do you continue to elude me?!) You an also exchange Seasonal Points for NGS 1st Anniversary Exchange Tickets, which can be used at Xitre’s other shop for +50 Schwarz Armor. For those still working on gathering Arms Refiners to Limit Break their armor past +40 (I include myself in this group,) these armors are extremely tempting. As the icing on the 1st anniversary cake, each armor is already Augmented too!
While you’re farming Seasonal Points, I hope you’re lucky enough to encounter Captan, as in NGS this enemy drops some choice Augment Capsules, which is even better than N-Meseta in my opinion (though phashionistas may disagree.)
I highly recommend you get into Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis and check out the event for yourself, because there’s even more headed down the pipeline. June brings the Kvaris update and a whole new set of areas to uncover, so having some time to level and prepare would be a good idea. So, take my advice and visit the Xbox store and download the game – for free – for PC or Xbox today!
