Emberfire

Honestly I think that having parts that players complain are "too difficult" are better than players calling it "too easy". At least when you have difficult parts it gives you a sense of real accomplishment doing shit, even if it means the developers fucked something up somehow. Xenoblade Chr2 has been one of the best games I've played in years. The story from what I've seen so far is lighthearted with serious moments, but it keeps me actually interested and there's so much shit to do that it's actually engaging.

Poker_Star
Poker_Star

A question that's been burning me is how exactly blade combos work with the AI and all. I'm not that deep into the game yet, but deep enough for it to matter and I'm still confused. What dictates when the AI switch weapons? If they have a weapon with an elemental special that meshes with the current combo will they do so? Will they switch blades to use a launch special if the enemy is stumbled? If they just arbitrarily switch and I can't use one of their alt blades for its element to do elemental special combos that is pretty shit.

Lord_Tryzalot
Lord_Tryzalot

@Poker_Star
What dictates when the AI switch weapons?
If there isn't a combo up, they will switch when they don't have any arts to perform. If there is a combo up that can use a certain element, they will keep to that element no matter what, until the gauge runs down.

Will they switch blades to use a launch special if the enemy is stumbled?

Yes, but Blade Combo takes priority, so don't expect them to do them if you are waiting on an element.

@Emberfire
The game has been extremely enjoyable the only issues I had were technical issues such as hard FPS drops, no collectopedia, crappy map, no new start, and questionable eng dub.

For the themes of the story it covered them pretty good like how you need to accept and just learn to move forward etc. For story negatives I felt Nia and the Torna blades kinda got dragged out and Amalthus took too much screen time when he was not built up earlier in the game and had no impact on me.

Because you probably have them waiting on a blade combo on a weapon that doesn't have healing. Also. Why aren't you using Nia as a blade and having Rex be the healer for that battle? It's what is canon suppose to be happening.

@iluvmen
Nia herself is the better healer, if only because making Rex the healer later on becomes a little bit of a pain. Which is a shame, since Nia as a blade is an insane healer all by herself, though her heal takes a while to come out.

Jin's bullshit move is a counter, when you see him suddenly stop, move away from him. Malos' attacks can be resisted. Change your Aux chips to protect against Blowdown and Blade Shackle. Focus on Malos, forget Jin and just try to get him down to half HP as soon as you can.

I take it you are the guy from the last thread. How did you react to that boss, I still want to know.

In terms of hype? Not nearly as much. It's a big mech. In terms of how tough the fight is? Oh, it's way tougher if you are on par with it level wise and don't know what's coming.

The minimap desperately needs an indicator showing what direction an objective is in if it's too far out of the range of the minimap to be shown directly. Just something like pic related would suffice. I cannot believe this isn't a feature in the game honestly, I've never played a game where it isn't. Without it, the minimap borders on useless.

Watched the ending again on youtube instead and close the game since it got slower and slower with no chance to reach the end
Dunno where that come from but do I really need a save from after the ending to unlock something? I really don't want to do that fight again right now.

It depends on how fucked up your rolls are, since overdrives are limited to 3 easy-to-get ones. We know ways of getting more now (completing rare blades' / drivers' affinity sheet) so it's becoming less of an issue for those concerned with only post game. Still a pain if you get really bad rolls and want to have a dream-team for the story, you pretty much have get all 21 and release-and-reroll on the characters you want, or restart your save.

It gains insane spike damage below half, so by attacking it normally you are killing yourself. Chain attacks bypass spike damage, for reasons.

It would be less bullshit if the game had a tutorial section where you learn that that chain attacks bypass reflect / spikes. Do any other enemies before this point even use spike damage?

I feel like the game expects me to think of humans and blades as equal (or at least that Blades matter worth a damn) considering how Pyra etc act in cutscenes, but I really can't muster it in me to give a shit about them. I don't buy Blades being a part of the world in the same way I buy Pawns being a part of Dragon's Dogma.

Anyone else feel this? Androids, machina, aliens, human consciousness in robot bodies I can buy having moral dilemmas. But you don't put lives with value in a gacha system.

I’ve heard a few of my friends say something similar and then turn around and love their Pokémon to death when it’s essentially the same thing, instead of opening crystals it’s running through grass until you encounter the chance to find what you want.

Which is totally unrelated, just made me think of that. I guess it depends on how you look at things, I don’t care about the common blades because they have copy paste voices and personalities but I love most of the rare ones.

Reminder that the gacha RNG mechanic for obtaining blades is not out of the ordinary in jRPGs and you get A TON of cores. It is the fact that they are tied to the character you get them on with no way to get more than 3 (+5 late game) chances at it that is the real stupid part.

Sir_Gallonhead

@Methshot

They are basically pieces of equipment gameplay wise. There are only 20 RNG ones and with the rate you can obtain rare and legendary cores, there is no fucking way you'll be stuck NOT getting them all unless you want them on specific characters. All of their quests and interactions are specific to them alone, nothing to do with the main story and NOTHING missable. Their interjections in scenes are all generic and can repeat. Obtaining them on hour 1 of the game is the same as obtaining them in hour 200 since you can do everything exclusive to them at any time the plot stops gating you.

She says 亀頭 in Japanese, which is literally "turtle head," which Nia means as an insult based on the whole Turtle thing Zeke has going, but it's also a nickname for the tip of a dick - basically the Japanese version of saying "bell-end."
In English I'm surprised at how well "One-Eyed Monster" actually fits the context given that it's also a penis reference, and still fits with Zeke since he's got an eyepatch on.

The entire system with the blades is fundamentally flawed beyond being character locked.

The idea behind the blades is to have a flexible party and promote experimentation with what you have, but the trust system is a complete counterbalance to that. You have one side that promotes constant switching with the other side promoting (very) long term progression, so a large portion of players are going to end up sticking with whatever rares they get first because they don't want to grind up another character.
A band-aid fix would be to just give a starting bonus to trust based on thought cloud levels, as well as bonuses to the trust gained through merc missions.

You also have shit like Ursula, who you can't even use until you spend 500 hours doing merc missions every 5 minutes with her, but that's another issue entirely.

Other than salvaging, the only other way I know of getting them is releasing Blades. From what I've seen, if you got a common while spending 5 of a certain booster, releasing it will give you back 1 booster of that type (and sometimes a second one of a different type).

Sheba gives an ether stat boost which isnt great on Zeke because he wants strength to hit shit hard with.

Praxis doesn't give strength but she does give a dexterity boost so Zeke will have better overall accuracy.

I'm pretty certain you are wrong on that matter. Like the other user said, they wouldn't react the same way with Poppi if they really lost their memories. If anything, the whole memory stuff wasn't really an issue before because Rex still had the other half of the aegis core hence why Pyra and Mythra still knew him and fused into Pneuma.

I'd say that the aegis core Rex has kept until the end basically reactivated thanks to Klaus' last action with the titans and stuff.

I'm not sure if the DLC will be post end content or a prequel content about Torna and/or the aegis war.

Not sure Alvis would make the most sense like the other anons said but in that case Xeno2 Klaus should be able to know that Alvis was in Xeno1's dimension given that he is aware enough of that dimension that he knows the status and environment of Xeno1's Klaus well enough to know that he's gonna die.

Despite that, he said that Ontos fucked off somewhere he doesn't know and it seems that Ontos disappearance happened way after the dimensions-creating experiment given how he speaks about it and yet Alvis said that he was part of Xeno1's dimension since its very start.

But well, I'm probably overthinking it.

She has a really useful item drop rate skill that is fantastic for farming cores/chips but I would rather have her on Nia since I like to use Rex to do the most of the driver combos. It is hard to get anyone else to do shit like Smash until you get Zeke.

Pyra is actually better because of elemental coverage, the strength modifier, the extra crit dmg, but also the fact that Burning Sword is not fucked by environmental restriction, whereas at some point, Sacred Arrow can't even be used.

I assume the normal blades are all unique in the same way people look different, they just couldn't represent that ingame very well other than some slight variations. But the rare ones do stand out for sure regardless. They could have at least had different color tones for normal blades so they look more distinct.

When chapter 10 starts you'll really fucking wish that going through the world tree was only like going up the tower of salvation in Tales of Symphonia (which means there's still a lot of content despite reaching the top being the initial set goal) because it introduces new plot elements that you'll really wish to see expanded upon but won't be and most likely won't be in the DLC either.
It's really frustrating that new plot elements that are extremely interesting get introduced even during the final fucking fight.

Well then... I guess I didn't want that loot anyway.

Do you guys have a good method to max out Uraya and Indol? One has no salvaging point, the other has a shitty one that doesn't drop materials often enough to make trading a good method.

Buy cylinders then sell them. Rinse repeat.

I was able to max out every area by just restocking on canisters there until it hit level 5.
You don't need to bother raising Indol's development level, it doesn't give you anything worthwhile.

I like that they bother to give her panties when shes a god damn robot. I guess the entire thing of her having clothing is the same deal. At least the first Poppi just has a hat and some cloak thing.

get Electra and Nim from common crystals just after the first fight with Dughall
go to get them some core crystals
putting core crystals on them changes their unique-looking weapons into generic ones

but what if I want to fight with an electrified taiko drum on a stick and not have its' auto attack be trash

It's not my sheet but the sheet in the OP.
The point is so everyone can add info. I'm just adding Deeds since I've gotten a lot of them.

If you're posting it for information's sake, always use the htmlview. It's infinitely easier to search through, and doesn't have the huge memory footprint of the document editor.

At what point do I get Morag's 2nd story blade? Tired of not getting being able to roll Finch or Perceval on her.

With XB2, is there any point to using the basic bitch common blades instead of one of the 30ish rare blades?

I'm still in Chapter 2, I really don't like that fisticuffs common blade they want you to use with Rex so I'm just rocking Pyra until some cooler blades pop up

@JunkTop
Early game, take what you can get but you'll get a few story blades that you can pop on to Rex and rare blades will always be better. you can just power through and just use pyra, thats up to you
