Phantasy Star Online 2 Sub-Class Update Adds New Weapons And Level Cap

By Ishaan . October 3, 2012 . 12:30pm

Phantasy Star Online 2 recently saw an update in Japan that added new features like an Otsukimi festival lobby, a team room, story quests and more, but there’s still the matter of that October update that’s supposed to add sub-classes to the game. Sega announced today that this will arrive on October 10th.



As previously detailed, the update will allow you to use sub-classes in conjunction with your regular class once you’ve fulfilled a certain Client Order. Equipping a sub-class will allow you to use its abilities along with those of your regular class. You’ll be able to use combinations like Hunter + Techer or Ranger + Gunner.


The October update will also increase Phantasy Star Online 2’s level cap from 40 to 50, and will add Very Hard difficulty quests that will allow you to fight rare versions of certain bosses with different colours. Sega mention rare versions of Burn Doral, Rogbelt and King Vardha (above).


Additionally, 10-star rare weapons and new Photon Arts will be added to the game as well. Take a look at some of the weapons below:

    I’m still waiting for Sega of America to announce this for the vita! This is a great update, really looking forward to looking at more gameplay with the new photon arts :)

      • Kefkiroth

        Well, in Japan it has already… not in America.

        • I wasn’t sure if that person was asking about the Vita version- or the Vita in US. ^^; 

          My bad! XD

          • ViewtifulBo

            I was talking about a release on the US version :P It has been announced for Japan for awhile now. I’m just patiently waiting for Sega of America to announce it. Hopefully soon!

  • Luna Kazemaru

     This patch is going to piss off alot of people aswell >.> already left me upset.

    • nirvana123

      Can i ask why ? 

      • Luna Kazemaru

         Sega’s piss poor way to combat inflation.

        • nirvana123

          Yea they have been really bad at it.

          • Luna Kazemaru

             basically coming in the next patch is.

            [1]Rooms that have existed for over four hours will no longer spawn
            enemies nor will rooms nearing four hours (at 3 hours & 30 minutes)
            be accepting new parties.

            [2]Vendor prices for weapons and units will be falling to “combat inflation.”

            [3]Vendor prices for single star weapons and items will be raised.

            [4]10 star and greater items will not be tradeable in any way.

            [5]Level 11 disks will not be tradeable in any way.

            [6]7 Star or greater weapons will now drop with elements in the 20~45 range while tekked items will 25~50 range.

            [7]Boss will drop more meseta when they drop meseta (this doesn’t mean
            they’ll drop more meseta but the value of the meseta they drop will

            [8]Eventually, the amount of meseta needed to grind weapons will be decreased

            4 and 5 are just completely dumb

          • nirvana123

            4 pisses me off actually. People should be able to trade whatever they want in this kind of game.

      • ZEROthefirst

        You’re still stuck only using the weapons from your main class. You can’t use weapons from both classes only your very limited and repetitive 3-4 different weapon classes.

        • nirvana123

          Really ? That sucks and kinda takes the point and fun out of it.

          • ZEROthefirst

            There are some weapons from every class that will be universal to all classes but it’s probably going to be very limited and the best ones of classes will probably be locked to their main class :/

          • nirvana123

            There shouldn’t be a cap on it .

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    PSU weapons.. no Exam form psp2?

    • Draparde

      I loved the Exam X_x i hope they add it eventually lol

  • nirvana123

    God i love phantasy star !

  • Draparde

    Other than the sub jobs i’m looking forward to the new PA’s.

  • Nice… I wonder if all this updates would make it to the Vita version of the game?

    • ZEROthefirst

      The Vita version plays together with the PC version so it’d be stupid if they made it possible to ignore updating the Vita version too.

  • Zero Shift

    My god, come to NA already PSO2! I want to play this so bad.

  • Oooh i hope those dual machineguns are Yashminkovs :x !

    • M’iau M’iaut

      If so, trust me then they are hacks or dupes.

      •  Hahaha, just like the old days ? :P

        • M’iau M’iaut

          A few real rares did exist. I found my little Pinkal FOneweal a Tripolic Shield offline — and to my last day online  if I played in an open game I always had someone asking me to let them dupe it. :P

          And my bud had found all the drops and got himself a legit Black Bar. But since he played his FOnewman as a tech fiend, he rarely used it.

  • CirnoLakes

    That does it. My PC needs this game right now.

    What do I do? I take it I need to go to and click the SEGA ID button. Then give it my email and further navigate the sign up process if there is anything else. And then click the download or ゲームダウンロド button. And it’s as simple as that.

    If not I’d like some help. But otherwise, wish me luck! Also, what am I, playing like 5 MMORPGs right now? Oh well, variety is fun!

  • Pythia Brixham

    I wonder if there will ever be an update that will allow players to dual wield the gunblades.
