PSO2 Episode 5 is shaping up to be a controversial one. Right at the start, some huge nerfs and buffs changed the gameplan of some classes completely. The new class, Hero, despite the fancy “advanced class” moniker, has the most idiot-proof playstyle of any class by far.
Phantasy Star Online 2’s controversial Episode 4 is ending. It was a mixed bag of an episode. Some changes were good – NT weapon grinding and 12-star units made gear sets more flexible. Some were interesting, like Skill Rings and gathering. And some just make me wonder what they were thinking, like Maron Strike being a feature.
Now, Episode 5 is almost here. To usher it in, the level cap was increased to 80, with some very steep requirements. There’s talk of hard-capping damage at 999,999 to ‘balance’ cross-class Chain Trigger, and more Collection Files in the pipeline.

Getting an S-rank on solo Profound Darkness is actually hard :/ Still trying to figure it out myself!
So I’ve been doing a lot of homework watching videos and trying to figure out how the fight works. It turns out there’s a Youtube of every class getting an S-rank, so that’s a lot of variety to work with.
