Phantasy Star Online 2 Trailer Shows Off Fighter, Gunner And Techer Classes

By Ishaan . August 31, 2012 . 8:30am

As previously reported, Phantasy Star Online 2 is getting new job classes in September. Three classes—Fighter, Gunner and Techer—are being added to the game, and you can check them out in the trailer below that shows off the contents of this next update.

 

 

Phantasy Star Online 2 producer, Satoshi Sakai, also provided an update regarding the new classes at the game’s official development blog. Here are a few details:

 

Fighter:

Can use Brave Stance and Wise Stance skills. In the case of Brave Stance, attacking an enemy head on results in higher damage. Conversely, attacking from behind results in lower damage. Wise Stance is the exact opposite.

Fighters can use: Double Sabers, Twin Dagger, Knuckles, and Gunslash.

 

Gunner:

Can use Chain Trigger skill. This increases your chain count if you attack your enemy in an area you used the skill on. Chain Trigger has a complementary skill called Chain Finish that increases your Photon Art damage, depending on your chain.

Gunners can use: Twin Machineguns, Assault Rifle, and Gunslash.

 

Techer:

Can use Territory Burst skill. This increases the range of your Support Technic’s effect. Another skill called PP Convert increases your PP recovery rate but reduces your maximum HP.

Techers can use: Wand, Talis and Gunslash.

 

You can find screenshots of all three classes using their various weapons in Sakai’s new post at the link above.

    The class that was shown first with the Twin Daggers (in Reverse-Grip) is the Techer class, right? Or was that a skill related to the weapon? And the Gunner class looks awesome, with the slow-mo Matrix-like attacks and moves, but the one that got me was the character fighting at 0:15 in the trailer… that’s the one I want to play as the most!

    Also can you change your class anytime in the Phantasy Star Online games? I know the PSP ones allow you to change you class anytime at the HQ in the game.

    Man I can’t wait to get this game! It’s awesome!

       I know how you feel.  I’m not accustomed to being frustrated waiting on a free to play, but I loved the original PSO (and have felt burned by every PSO related game since), and this is looking like it might have recaptured some of what I liked so much, so many years ago.

      The one using the Twin Daggers is the Fighter ;) .

      As for class switching, you indeed can change at anytime at the HQ, though those 3 new classes require you to have leveled up one of the starting classes to lv.30 (Hunter for Fighter, Ranger for Gunner, and Force for Techer).
