Some shitty Unique I'm 10 levels above wipes my party as it has some bullshit heal nullifying affect
Zeke almost died because someone thought Pandoria was would fetch a good price.
What's the lowest level that consistently drops legendary cores?
I think it depends on the monster too. I fought a super easy unique bat who was level 75 and he never dropped any for me
Does Pandoria have the best legs in the game?
Yeah, it might be area based too. I fought one of those giant ball things in the world tree and it dropped two after I Full Burst it.
Pandoria has the best japanese voice. Especially when she says oji.
What the fuck are premium cylinders? Are they better than golden? You mean in goldmouth right?
She looks so much better when you can see her eyes. Reminds me of Latuni from SRW.
You get them after being graded for your salvage level in goldmouth. You cant farm them as far as i know but they give you 3 guaranteed white chests with no monsters at any salvage location. Very powerful
tfw you'll never have a cute bladefu
Zeke bonded with her
when he was 15. you just KNOW she helped him through puberty
what pretty eyes and smile you have, Asami
what the shit are you going to do with 200 million gold in this game
maxing out bath tub girl is like 1.5 million from start to finish
when her glasses
clear up so cute
heal nullifying affect
how the fuck do I counter that?
I think Zeke was always too much of a gentleman to take advantage of a situation like that. He also seemed unaware of her feelings for him until much later. It's nice to see him return her feelings too. They make a nice couple.
game crashed right before I was gonna save and call it a night
Another day in Xenoblade.
if you are fucking another blade from a mile radius, she will know
I have no idea and its pissing me off. It doesn't do that much damage but as soon as it nulls heal I get wrecked over time. It uses after losing about 25% health and then goes berserk and uses it more after 50% so I can't just use a big chain attack to take it out soon enough.
You don't. You hope you can survive until it goes away in 15 seconds. It fucked me over against
What's the best place to farm these 100 blood offerings I need to make to the shrine?
Too bad I can't just use the blood of the fodder blades, I'm drowning in them.
the dialect she speaks in is also 10/10
If you want to make my sister happy first you must feed me cake. At 15 trust per slice and 7000 trust required it will only take you 467 slices.
Pyra best girl
Why does she censor her eyes?
Go to the first area of the head in Uraya and just grab nodes until you reach the end of the long stretch then fast travel back and do it again. botany skills help a ton. I think the item is black pomegranate or something.
Poppi can null negative effects with a certain chip, so you could use that to counter it. It seems like it can be resisted too.
sinks a ship that may or may not have suspicious cargo on it
can see through falls from all the way on the other side of Uraya
suggests to feed the mercs she's watching poison to get them to talk
desperately wants to be near her driver at all time
What's the appeal to yanderefags because she creepy as fuck
Progress the story.
Agate has a cute design
a cute voice
but is a filthy axe user
sigh. not even on morag is she useful
Because she only has eyes for the Prince.
Any good place to farm rare cores in early chapters?
I had a hearty chuckle to this. Is this actually true?
blades not in your party hang out in Garfont
What happens if they look into eachothers eye?
I love this, I go see them every once in a while. They have cool things to talk about.
Do you really not gain extra trust from feeding a blade their most favorite item?
Mythra is too cute. Im sorry but Mythra is more exciting than Pyra.
not running axes on Rex for topple/launch/smash shenanigans
feeding them their favorite type and their favorite item give the same amount. If their favorite item is part of a favorite type they don't get double dipped.
can you rewatch heart to hearts
Please Takahashi let me have Kos-Mos even after 70 hrs I still suffer
Fuck, why is Zeke so best? I just encountered him in again chapter 4 before the factory. I want him in my party now.
your suffering has only just begun
Go to the rewatch events in the start menu.
this is a bad system.
how dare you be critical of xeno
like yeah man, i get it, but this is dumb and just gives me a reason to not use them
I mean you gain trust just by doing stuff with them too
no one in this general wants to "do stuff," we just want to sit at mor ardain and grind cores all day and complain about not getting the blade we want.
launch and smash on a character who can topple
I think he's complaining more about how long it takes, that people would rather stuff their faces then fight with them.
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.
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.
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.
Oh that's great. Thanks for the precise info.
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.
I meant 200k my bad
400 luck on Rex
STILL get trash from rare cores
ITS NOT FAIR
Ain't no biggie, just go farm them some more.
How the fuck do I use her efficiently? Her gun's rate of is so slow. I also have the same problem the ball.
Why do my partners refuse to do any healing whatsoever during the chapter 7 final boss?
Reminder that she will always remember you, so be good to her.
sidequest to find a guy's lost memento
it's a dog collar
dialogue option to ask if it's his wife's
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.
Hey, you don't know. It could have belonged to a dog type Blade or something. That world is crazy.
Just switch to them to use their arts then switch out.
What is the deal with the section in Mor Ardain before
the Zeke battle? Was I supposed to have to sneak by a shit ton of level 80s?
Malos spams Monado cyclone everytime I use a healing ability and it immediately causes it to cancel without healing anyone, and we all die in seconds. This is the first fight I've had any difficult with.
Can someone show on a map where the Poppi QTPi Heart-to-heart is supposed to be?
I'm apparently retarded
Go back to town and get Blowdown crystals on everyone. It's the first fight I had real trouble with too. Once you can resist that shit, tanking his damage is no problem.
I just finished chapter 3
Is Vandham dead and no longer playable?
If yes, was his affinity chart just a giant tease, or is there some decent reward for filling it out that transfers to someone else?
Also what are Vandham's favor items?
yes that must have been what they meant
I think I'm actually shaking with rage holy fucking shit
Which is a better healer, Nia with her other blades (which for me is Dromarch / Boreas / Vess) or Rex with Nia / Kora / Floren
Chapter 8 Questions
I have Jin and Brigid in my party. Before I can go back to take care of missibles in Indol, can I get my whole party back first?
Nia will always be a better healer period.
Scratch one off for Vandham, it's Armu T-Bone Steak. Anyone know the other one?
PLEASE respond. I'm also on Chapter 5 still
Wait. Someone apparently confirmed earlier that you can get extra overdrives by filling out party members' entire skill trees.
Vandham had his own skill tree.
This better not mean what I think it means.
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.
I want Mythra to slap my dick.
It doesn't show up until Chapter 8+.
you get them for clearing rare blade skill trees too
Good thing I didn't save. What's a good way to grind SP?
Anyone know where Kora's Heart to Heart or her Quest is?
big if true
would it be silly to put 3 katanas on morag
Who does bathtub Blade best pair with?
Isn't quests the only way? There aren't enough that early
The chapter 7 boss is fucking bullshit
EVERY FUCKING TIME Jin uses his one shot move on Rex, then Monado Cyclone happens and takes everyone to low hp, then Monado Jail happens and so when Rex is picked back up he can't even use healing abilities and then everyone dies. Every single time.
That scene is awful in english dub
BRINGER OF CHAOS!
every scene is
God fucking damnit Perceval you weren't supposed to roll on Zeke.
when you lose access to indol do you also lose all merc missions?
No, that's wrong. I got access to that heart-to-heart the first time I arrived in Leftheria. It's the quest that doesn't show up until Chapter 8
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.
Vess and Praxia still asleep after almost 3 hours
Question about the google doc!
Where do we put the sidequest details/locations for blades?
Should we put it under 'Other Notes'?
But I don't see it and I've been to both close islands to Rex's Village. there's no heart to heart there yet.
Maybe it has to do with how much trust Poppi has? What level is Poppi QT at right now?
Can somebody clarify to me what the Honeycomb Deeds do?
Increases Dev gains by one
I know it sounds straightforward, and it probably is but what does this mean? Do I just get more points when buying shit to getting another development level?
Just got to the end of chapter 3.
God damn gigga nigga, you were the broest of bros
Do you get a bonus for killing everything or something
Currently it's in parenthesis in the column saying whether they are story / side quest, probably best to move that to a "Details" column and for Sidequests say "See details"
She's only at level 2 affinity.
No, for killing nothing.
opposite. no kills gets you an absurd boost.
I think mine was level 3 when I got there.
Is it better to give Poppi evade tank role chips?
Requesting a new spreadsheet in the Google doc for
Rare Blade Heart to Hearts, Side quests, normal Heart to Hearts

I'm tempted to go double tank cuz Morag and qt pi
She's a block tank.
My game is stuck on a blank character setup screen. It won't change. I haven't saved in ages what do I do?
You fucked. Press the home button and close it. Then from now on, make sure you are closing the game down, instead of just leaving it paused.
Fuck the chapter 7 boss. I've spent hte past two hours trying to fucking kill it. I'm going to sleep. No matter what path I try to take to kill it, even with blowdown and the max tier shackle resist I still get shackled and blowndown.
Where is the water slide in Uraya again? I can't find it for the life of me.
give stuff to the shrine in Tantal
I found Kora's Heart to Heart! I've added it to her "Other Notes" in the Google Doc but I'll post it here, too.
"Heart to Heart: Req Level 3 Affinity - "Speak to Kora at the Inn in Fonsa Myma, Uraya" Requires Molag and Zeke to be present."
wtf the zeke fight in chapter 5 is actually hard
ctrl+s to properly spoiler, newfriend
I still need fucking Kora REEEEEEE
Goddamn salvaging is fucking OP.
Zeke and Morag permanent party members once they join? Don't want to waste Blades and money on them if not.
Click the checkbox next to your fucked-up post and hit the 'delete' button at the bottom right of your screen, newfriend.
go back to the tower where
level 115 robot and two level 98 robots sitting in the middle of the room
im gonna need two swords for this
So this may be a bit difficult to do since overdrives are limited, but has anyone tried optimizing their combinations of elements for their blade combos/chain attacks?
I'm interested in seeing what people have chosen for their healers/attackers/tanks after considering blade arts and element coverage. Or at the very least what they think would be ideal if RNG hasnt gone your way
100% shackle resistance doesn't actually give you 100% shackle resistance
lol ok game
She's great, and this Heart-to-Heart is great.
To anyone who does it, do "I'll confess my love right here". for the best result.
Are you sure you have the right shakle resist. There is both Blade and Driver Shakle.
How do I block purple damage? It's fucking me up against certain not Tyrants I fight.
Is the final boss as good as Zanza was in XC1 or is it underwhelming?
break Earth seal on Gormott
Are there more of these on this titan specifically then? The one by the shipyard is the only one I've seen so far.
So what are the salvage spots/tactics for farming gold and/or cores?
Maybe also a good idea to add that to the faq in the op.
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. It's the first instance of shackle healing. Once you know though and can set up your chain attack properly, he goes down no problem.
Who's your favorite character to control?
If only because the only one I've been playing as
I haven't actually experimented much. Just used Nia, Rex and Zeke. All of them were pretty fun in their own way.
Worst design in chronicles 2, hands down, must be mercenary mission which the game has to be active to even progress.
Roll this little cumbucket on Morag using a fucking common
BASED GATCHA GODS
The best girl is in your team right?
How do you raise polar bear lolis affinity?
i miss him
Go sleep at the Mercenary camps inn with her in party and then do the heart to hear. Then go to Gormott. Rest is self explanatory,
I can't believe Finch is fucking dead
Purple numbers are spikes. You have to equip aux cores that protect against spikes.
I did that and completed the heart to heart.
Was there something I was supposed to do after it?
Has anyone found any use for skills like girl talk?
Is there a public doc somewhere for people to help compile monster locations?
Now you should go to Gormott. Go to the fountain with the girl playing the guitar thing and you should get a quest.
This Orb Master skill some common blades have seems pretty OP. It instantly creates orbs of any special used for a level 1 or 2 Blade Combo. You can create 3 orbs in one combo, and the effect applies to the whole party not just the blade with the skill.
those are just the sleeping pills user
she sure is
Quick webm of it instantly creating a light orb. Wonder what kind of setups people can make with 4* common blades.
Wew. Started with 100k and now I have a cool 2.6 million after 99 golden cylinders. Now that's what I call progress.
tfw it's no longer Reyn time
Reyn as a Tank Blade when
Rex unlocks a bunch of special snoflake mechanics throughout the game.
Tora has Poppi.
can be used as both a driver and a blade.
Do Zeke and Morag gain any unique gimmick or no?
Xenosaga remake is gonna be announced tomorrow!
i don't think there's anything fancy to it, just lets you get a full burst faster
great skill for a generic though
For once only rolling for common blades for merc missions
Fear of rolling a rare by accident on the wrong person
It's not. There's also not a HD collection coming. Not tomorrow and not the 15th. All those rumours are false.
So who are the best blades on Zeke?
I WANT TO FUCK SHEBA
Nope, they stay just as they are.
But because of Rex, they can at least change their full kit, rather then being stuck with one type of blade that might not suit every situation.
Waait a minute... in a merc mission that requires males, Roc doesn't qualify as male. What gives?
Isn't Sheba a big lesbian though because she always wants to be around women?
But Harada said "No comment"
This is my biggest problem with the system unfortunately and I know it's going to mess me up when I am playing my min/max save. At least you can max out their affinity tree to get an overdrive and swap them to who you do want. Or you can just release them and try again later. Sucks to just give them up though.
KOS MOS re
you get wp items for maxing out blade affinity, overdrives are from driver affinity
Is this confirmed? I keep hearing rare blades give overdrives instead. Still, it's not a big deal to just release and get them again.
Do you unlock the ability to send out more than one merc squad later?
yes. up to 3
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.
yep for both, you can try it on a 1 star, and higher rarities give more wp
i think people are just hung up on trying to get good combinations early on and really reluctant to use commons for filler
Can you name the crystals?
beat final boss and watch the scenes
suddenly I'm dropping frames hard
it got so bad that the credits went with one frame in two seconds
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.
Would you help Theory learn about adult responsibilities and help her
Memory leak fucking things up it sounds like. Until they get that patch out, people are just going to have to remember to quit the game instead of leaving the Switch on.
I assume the plus affinity accessories dont increase character affinity and only the in battle affinity thing?
I noticed this too while farming cores. Areas start loading in so slow that you can see the super low res textures and bottom of the world.
"Base affinity" is starting affinity, "affinity gain" for drivers/blades.
What does it mean when a mercenary mission has the golden civic crown?
means you've beaten it buddy
Electra is a block tank, with bonus counter damage.
That you have completed it, but that it's repeatable.
Oh, I thought they would give hidden development points for its area. Good to know.
It's the first instance of
That happens in the
final Jin fight too
Excited to finally take on Zeke for the third time as everyone says its a tough battle
I'm 10 levels above him and the battle is a breeze
Oh, maybe I should focus on the story instead of other things.
Really? I never noticed. I guess I beat him WAY too fast for him to even get it off. Just did his usual.
Even when he was 4 levels above me, that fight wasn't hard. Some people just suck and can't seem to Blade Combo it seems.
Are all the manuals locked behind 90% of the story or something, or am I just missing them? I just started chapter 4 and I only found one so far at the start of the previous chapter. I'd love to change Poppi's element/role, but monolithsoft seems to have other ideas.
Really wanna now if a save after the game unlocks something important or not. Else I would concentrate on doing other stuff and keeping the final boss for now.
You unlock more things you can get in Tiger Tiger, which includes element swaps around chapter 6.
I want to fuck Pandoria!
Also where is Webm user. I would like Zeke and Pandoria's stertching idle
who is the sluttiest blade
Too bad, her heart belongs to her Prince.
What are objectively the best blades to use on Rex earlyish on? I think I'm nearing the end of chapter 4 and I currently have
Roc, and Based Bug Boy
can't remember his name, shit
Is there ever a point in which I can fucking change each characters "main" blade? I get the feeling it's never going to happen and that just seems utterly retarded to me on all levels. Basically pigeon holes the ever living shit out of you and destroys any build diversity you could go for.
Nia is always the healer. Rex always the attacker. Woo lad.
Please tell me I'm wrong and that soon I'll have complete freedom to pick whichever 3 blades I want to use on each character.
Based Bug Boy
That's the one
Is there ever a point in which I can fucking change each characters "main" blade?
Rex gets the ability to engage any blade after chapter 7. So you can have him equip them and then just disengage them and you can equip whoever you want on the character you took them from. So does that include even main blades like Bridghid, Dromarch, etc?
21 rare cores on Zeke, here's to nothing. KosMos or bust.
Why do some people complain about "x rolled y which I wanted on z". Can't you just overdrive the rare blades over to the other character if you really want it on said character? Or do you lose something?
Does that include removing pyra and mythra from Rex?
But we have Zeke!
where and how do you have to dive again for max profit?
I used some gold ones at random locations and lost money.
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.
Oh, I thought rare blades were static.
BRING US BACK SOME LOCAL SNACKS, YOU HEAR?
I can't believe that Mythra and Pyra forget
everyone at the end .
SOMEONE UPLOAD THE FULL OST REEEEEEEEEE I WANT THE FUCKING FIRST CHARACTER TRAILER THEME
We will never get all 120 tracks
Motherfucker this doesn't really happen right?
We don't know
It's in Mor Ardain in the loading dock area. Like where you first showed up in the country.
Wulfric or Gorg?
Thanks user. I've heard it's better to fuck up the QTE to spawn more monsters, is that correct?
Update: I got the book bitch on Zeke. Pulling commons, the scarved unique blade silhouette keeps popping up as the 2nd silhouette and teasing me.
*blocks your path*
tora's jap voice is really cute
I must know, is there a better way than getting it down to half and the immediately start a chain attack to not get spammed to death by the defense mechanism? It was literally the only way to beat it for me but I felt like I just did something wrong.
I need this.
Did people actually think a Xeno game would review above 90 or is this just lighthearted shitposting?
I had the same issue, any time i hit the power lines after half the cannon ignored agro and blew rex up. Ended up beating it by sealing the cannon's blowback and spamming topple before switching targets
I ended up giving up on Kos-mos a couple of days ago after about 6 hours of grinding cores and not even getting a rare out of it. I'll get back to her in the post game or something
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?
Might be a stupid question, but earlier today the button icons in battle on the bottom right had a little text blurb next to them telling me exactly what they did, and now they're gone. Any idea how to get them back?
I want her to bully me
Click the left stick to toggle them
You must have done it by mistake
Click one of the analogue sticks during battle.
failing qte's increases the chance for monsters and decreases the chance for chests
a lot of unique monsters after uraya have spike damage, i remember the first one i killed myself on was the giant flower in the water area
Awesome, thanks m8s
but is it better to earn money?
a lot of unique monsters after uraya have spike damage
Having basically bypassed this to focus on story for the past few chapters, what exactly _do_ you do to deal with spike damage? Other than heal through it, is there some accessory I need to find that negates it?
Only playing X before going to 2 makes the world feel so small especially after beating it and walking around to do things i missed. The only area that really feels big is the bottom of genbu since it's so empty
I used 5 cores on chuuniboy and got 2 rares. They are both healers :(
Using normal cylinders (and failing QTE apparently) is better for cores.
If you want money use golden cylinders and don't fail it.
Heres the other
What's the ultimate team?
i'm not that far but there are aux cores that reduce spike damage 80%+, otherwise you just try to heal through it and chain attack
the bosses that also disable healing are the fucking worst
Kora seems like she would be bretty good on an ATK character.
Release Dahlia unless you want to max her and give her to Nia.
Does releasing her give you a chance to reroll her?
I really hope the dlc packs are significant amounts of content. If the new quest pack is like 30+ quests I would be happy but if it's one for each zone I will be pissed.
And the new blade pack sounds like it's a single blade not a bunch of new ones.
How do I get fortitude lv 2 on Gorg? Please respond.
You have to
Get rid of Gorg because he's a stupid ugly motherfucker
Come on man, I'm just trying to complete quests same as everyone else. Do you actually know?
Just pulling your leg, man. Jokes aside, you gotta
FUCKING GET RID OF GORG BECAUSE HE'S A STUPID UGLY MOTHERFUCKER_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
get to Letheria
Wow, I sure wish I could sprint between these fucking islands and down these long ass hallways. Almost worse than Eryth Sea, somehow.
yes and the lower amount of rare blades you have means the better chances you'll get a new rare blade
I could give less of a shit. I'm not rolling some other fucking rare blade to get fortitude again because you don't give a shit. If you don't know, then just don't bother responding.
Can't take a joke, can you there, buddy?
No need to be upset, Anonpon, just get a better blade
It's not that I can't take a joke, it's just that you're wasting my time.
Is it possible to fall in love with a robot, /xgg/?
Nia is lewd. LEWD!
finally get Kora
shes's bonded to
would be fine to slot her in but he's got Herald/Azami and I'm not far enough to swap out his main
Herald does way too much damage to swap out, and I can't sub her in for Azami 'cos then I'd have 3 elec blades on him.
What's a guy to do?
So everyone is saying that Indol become inaccessible? What should I do their before continuing the story?
Can someone answer this?
Those are some real smug cattes
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.
Fucking sucks getting her affinity up. activating a merc quest every 7 minutes for god knows how many times. Dont even get a chance to use her until her grid is pretty much done.
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.
Thanks a bunch user, may your Zeke pulls be rare blades.
Finally got Dagas which I wanted on Nia but now I find that his bladeswitch cooldown is fucking shit.
Is he just like this because I got him recently and/or is there a way to modify the cooldown besides aux?
Completely agree. She's so damn good but just going from 3>4 requires 27 merc quests as one element of it.
I've easily spent 5-10 hours in the menus at this point. There's so much bullshit they could literally remove that would improve the game immensely. I just want to explore the world and enjoy the combat but I feel like the game is sabotaging that at every turn.
Developed Indol to 5
No shops sell deeds and no Merc. missions for contracts
What is this shit?
well it becomes unavailable doesn't it?
who has time to grind it to level 5 before c8?
saa, baka nandarou
How and when can I unlock new books/manuals for Poppi?
Welcome to an actual RPG.
I love Floren. I want to protect her(him).
Does anybody know some good, big enemies you can level on at around level 73? The
red Colossi mechs right in front of the final boss used to give aroung 15k exp but my level is too high for them now.
On the topic of idle animations, I dunno if these were already posted or not, but I might as well in case they haven't been.
It never stops to amaze me that something that's a spinoff of DnD gets as much materials as the DnD itself, and DnD is very thick. Like, who would even bring them to the actual sessions.
How the fuck do I get to the abandoned factory?
I want to
suck his trap penis

I made that list, and yes, though I'm now updating it on the doc rather than here.
Keep up the good work, user.
morag is a man!!!!
Don’t you DARE lewd my wife
Spoiler your fucking pictures, user.
through the building right at the skip travel point for the old industrial site.
the room with the spider nests has a doorway at the back.
Took me fucking forever to find it
Its even the same hair colour.
still no uploads of the late game music
What is the best couple
and why is it Zeke/Pandoria?
Ah, does it have a field move at the end? Or is it a different one?
this also means that nia was secretly happy when pneuma was gone for a moment
Oh, nevermind I found it. But jesus christ.
Level 80 enemies everywhere
Dying every other fucking second
Holy shit what did they mean by this.
Here’s your daily update on Joseph Anderson’s stream playthrough. Reminder that he hates the game or likes it ironically at most, and is only playing it because he wants to make fun of it.
complains arkhos/malos fight takes too long but doesn’t use elemental burst like he was taught the first time around
says the game tutorials are obtrusive and unhelpful.
Complains about party makeup becoming stale
Complains when his party is changed for story reasons
Hates literally every English VA except for malos
Refuses to try JPN VA
Ignores tutorial about status effect
Gets frustrated when he gets blade/driver locked
Doesn't understand why he keeps switching targets automatically
complains that arkhos and malos should be affected by Arkhos' ether manipulation
When the game basically explains why they aren't he calls it a dumb copout.
I'm not even an hour in to his latest vod send help.
Will I be missing out on anything major if I play xenoblade 1 on the 3ds?
Can anyone give more detailed directions to the elemental seal in Leftheria? I can't find it with the other user's directions
Game's content is exactly the same between 3ds and Wii. The 3ds version has an extra model viewer and sound test, but that's it.
Complains that characters early on stop fighting to talk
Complains that characters talk while fighting in the malos/arkhos cutscenes
That one really ticks my tocker
Does this man have brain problems?
Here, it's in this spot.
To get there you must start south from there, at the exit of the tunnel. Use the slide that goes down the path and jump at the last moment to reach a climbable wall that takes you on top of the area, where the seal is.
Also Superstrength/Wind Mastery 7.
Nothing lighthearted about it. Shitposting is deathly serious.
Is there a more efficient way to farm merc points? It takes an absolute shitload to rank up, I'm only like 5000/8000 to rank4 and the longest missions only give like 150 points but take over an hour.
No wonder I couldn't find it, the other post said it was near the left island
Just do a lot of missions.
Also, when you take a mission, you can see at the bottom recommended skills to bring. If you bring characters with those, the time it takes for the mission to complete is shorter.
No he just literally goes out of his way to hate anything with any kind of anime tropes at all, even if he contradicts himself all the time. Because anime stole his girl or something I don't know. Actually yes, probably.
Its because Wizards fucked themselves with 4th Edition and they lost a full half their players to Paizo.
Yeah I know it is shorter but still takes a long time. I can't even imagine getting to rank5 to max out Roc since each level more than doubled the needed points. I imagine rank 5 is like 20k or some dumb shit.
Crit up V aux core
multiple art recharge foods
Never autoattack ever again
It's 20k, yeah.
I'm at 13.7k and the grind's getting hars, specially since I've now finished every merc mission avaialble and have to repeat multiple I've already completed.
I imagine rank 5 is like 20k or some dumb shit
one last gentle bump
What will the DLC be? We know that Mythra and Pyra don't have any
memory of Rex .
That is some absolute horse shit. I imagine I'll be done with most the game and side shit before then. Let's say I cut the time off the 2h missions by half with the recommended skills, that is still only 300 an hour with my 2 teams. Will take me 10 ingame hours just to reach rank 4 then if they give me another team, that will take me like 25+ hours to get to rank 5. I like that merc missions allow me to rank up and get affinity stuff on Blades I don't main but fuck does it take a long time.
I am at Port Arnagham #2 and I need to go to the abandoned factory at Mor Ardain. Problem is the gate is locked. How do I get through?
At least from 4 to 5 you have 3 teams.
There's one in the abandoned factory of Chapter 4, the others I couldn't tell you.
Through the Upper Level. Or you can find the key in the Fief of Forgetfulness.
Is the upper level route the way through that giant spider hive?
They lost that permanently so no idea.
It goes through the Old Industrial District on the west side of the Upper Level. I think there were some level ~30 enemies there plus some levle 80 ones that can be easily avoided.
Grand I am in the right place. The two giant spider queens seem tough with all the smaller ones around. Thanks.
I think it does unlock the spawn of some rare monsters
go check the place where you fought Jin and Malos to see if the mecha snake level 110 or more is there to be sure.
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.
Isn't that there you have to sleep in Tantal, watch a cutscene and then go to the h2h that appeared in that city?
Remove common blades
Remove gacha system and make all rare blades come from side quests
Remove merc quests
Game is now 10x better.
No, gatcha is stupid regardless of whether or not "everybody's doin it."
Still no different than grinding a piece of gear or drop from any other RPG. The only difference is the stupid animation you gotta go through that bogs it down. There game could use a more natural way to obtain blades through normal gameplay and not staring at the menu for a long fucking time.
Reminder to go back to the old factory once you've cleared it. There's a lot of stuff you don't normally see, and the framerate is MUCH better due to the lack of enemies.
i want to FUCK pandoria
Still no different than grinding a piece of gear or drop from any other RPG
I'm not going to sit here and explain the difference between a character and a piece of equipment to you, user. But I respect the lengths you're going to defend bad systems in a game we all like.
Is Ch5 short? I want to clear it ASAP to get the last party member because I have 3 unique cores to use on him (Sheba, Wulfric, Praxis). I might just give Morag the Kasandra core because it is a tank and all I have on her now is fucking Dahlia and Azami.
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.
enemy with a frontal ability that does a fuckload of damage
Morag tanking it and dodging everything so thats fine
but Nia is standing RIGHT NEXT TO HER, won't move and gets blasted as well
I really don't want to have to control her but I'm fucking tired of my healer dying all the time.
So how would Mythra know about the One-Eyed Monster?
Boreas is best healer hands down.
You get him not too far into it.
You think dicks didn't exist 500 years ago?
I just finished that scene and got no idea what that is referring to. Is that a Japanese reference or?
It's a penis
But that's wrong, they
wouldn't recognize Poppy if they didn't have their memories and yet they do.
What drops those bad boys. I need one that gives the skill points for the characters themselves.
Kraut here, in Ger translation they refer to it as one eyed snake which honestly fits better.
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.
It wasn't a drop but a chest in the Old Factory.
Find the Disused Processing Plant in it, then follow the path to get it.
What button do I press to get my party to refocus down on an opponent?
The directional button that isn't a blade. So Left?
Might be one of the benefits of that localization during development thing Nintendo is doing now.
Christ I am blind. Thanks. If I had known I could have saved myself a lot of grief.
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.
Sheba vs Praxis, who is better on chuuni and why?
Where is the Poppi manual in the Old Factory?
I need more Truth and Justice boosters to grind out cores on Morag to get either Finch or Perceval. What is the fastest way to get them in bulk other than salvaging? Using 5 per core burns through them fast.
I just made it into the abandoned factory and there is a Ventilation shaft in the way. I need level 01 focus. Who has focus?
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).
Literally the girl you posted and her hotter sister.
user you can check it by using L/R when selecting a blade to engage and going to the Field Abilities category
You posted it.
given that you can't unequip pyra i would say user needs a level 1 focus on top of pyra's one you bakas
Level 41 unique giant flying snake fish thing in the water area southeast of the Uraya stomach
Have to aggro it by swimming up to it
Have to swim to shallow areas to fight it
Can aggro level 75 fish in the shallow areas
AI refuse to fucking fight it on anything but the very EDGE of the god damn water so your pots and shit fall into the abyss and you can't position yourself correctly
I have Mythra out but the focus isn't triggered at all.
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.
Plus Praxis is cuter and her eyepatch motif suits Zeke better, so its a clear winner.
very true, thanks user
Ok I just looked at her affinity chart. I got Focus but I need level 1. How do I quickly get it or am I in for a long grindfest?
Wouldn't all ether based attackers be kinda shit then? Who would you even slap that on other than healers so they don't heal as well anymore?
Praxis even have special post-fight comments with Zeke about eye patches.
mfw hearing THAT character's voice from the void
mfw beating the final boss with a full burst combo
mfw that ending scene
Got my new favourite jrpg, what a ride that was.
In a chest right under the room where you unlock the door to the boss.
Can you refight the final boss? People have said once you beat it you just get dropped outside the point of no return with a little star next to your save file.
When does Ursula get her level 3 and 4 merc missions? I got the quest to level up her singing/soul/etc but I still only have the missions for level 1 and level 2.
morag should have been the protagonist
I don't actually even know, I just go full mongo with my Blades and stuck all the Strength blades on Rex and Zeke. I have a few ether blades on them that I haven't really used, and I have Sheba and Azami on Nia for when I want to control her, though Sheba is extra shit on her because she doesn't need two water blades.
bruh the game fucking tells you how to rank it up, hop to it
favourite pouch item
I skipped through a lot and I am retarded user. I need 0-4 pouch item, but its behind a lock so it looks like I need to unlock tier 2 first.
Tier 2 is simple to unlock, literally just fight a few things and BLAM tier 2 or do any quest and instantly tier 2.
Where are the drinks for Boreas? He only accepts three kinds, but I don't know where they're sold.
This fucking factory I swear to god.
Why? why is this shit allowed?
that fucking fight with 3 grunts in the control room in the factory as Nia+Rex is harder than any boss fight I've hard in the past 4 chapters
Can't you just 1 shot a 15 scrub ass bunnies in Gormott or something?
implying i am talking about the quest and not it's meaning
user, is literally a cuck archivement.
I think that one requires the lv4 special too
why arent you using tora
Because he can't
Alright you fucking faggot. I don't what kind of Wobuffet used Counter type bullshit you're doing BUT YOU'RE GOING DOWN TODAY
Switch to a tank/healer group to cheese it out
That guy killed me once, he starts doing some dumb AoE that wrecks Rex at half health.
What the 'ell is wrong with the monsters this time? A brog starts a fight, and flying slytherin comes over to help out. Some little raptor shite tries to fuck you up, gets shitefaced and runs 5m to bring in some fucking bunnits. Don't get me started on those aerial rats tho.
Okay I'm starting to lose my mind here. What the fuck is going on in the quest you need to increase your Merc Rank from 1 to 2? I'm fighting the damn Invading Spike Urchins and am a few levels above them but can't even drop a single one before getting all kinds of fucked up.
I hate all raptors and wolf types, they call to help from a long ways away. Random ass shit they wouldn't want to help those fucks normally. I fight some shit ass wolf in Uraya, and 10 wolves + deer later I'm finally done with the fight.
I didn't even know you could do that quest another way to kill shit. I just had to cook a buncha stuff and got to rank 2.
Any Irish VAs in this game?
Wait its a one or the other thing and not both? Fuck it. I'm gonna cook this. Fuck these god damned Urchins.
Enemy drivers can use specials. You need to prevent them building meter as much as possible, and always topple when you have the chance to reduce it.
You're doing the wrong quest, the spy one has nothing to do with ranking up.
What stat increase does this megaqt give?
in a fight where like 10 weak adds jump in
Zenobia's passive fully activates and now Zeke is doing almost 3 times as much damage
She's gonna fucking snap one day isn't she?
Well shit. I thought they were both involved and was just trying to do the fighting one first. Thanks for the heads up.
Its worse in the end, that little push she does to Rex made me really sad for her.
implying she didn't go plan her revenge that night
Where can I buy the drinks for Boreas's final tier?
One day this will surface
Pandy's glasses no longer hide her eyes
How do I change it back?
Why the fuck does the game try so hard to push as though Rex has a choice between Pyra/Mythra when it's clear he only loves Pyra that way?
Maybe if Nia wore something sexier than a baggy jumpsuit, maybe Rex would want to fuck her over the titcow.
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.
Ideally we get a Torna prequel where the party is Malos, Jin, Akhos, Mikhail, and Patroka, and a post game one too, but thats reaching
Her blade mode is not enough?
what are nopon doublons for
So the thing that was done in the end, THAT guy did it right? When he waved his hand in the air etc before dying.
So why did he do it then? He couldnt have done it faster?
No hot bloodied young boy wants to be a healer. They want a pocket healslut which she can't be with that fucking outfit.
I assume something happens when you collect all 11.
Are we even sure Akhos and Patroka (Nia too) are alive during that time?
Also I read somewhere that it will be set in Elysium. What's if it's about
the pre-multiverse, beanstalk Elysium?
He only seemed to have ordered the titans to join together with the land.
He said he doesn't have any real power over the Conduit.
Someone said Morag falls off hard as a tank, but I can't stand TigerTiger anymore or Tora's stupid MEHMEHMEH battlecry.
Is she worth investing in?
Nia definitely wasn't, Mikhail definitely was, and we're unsure about Akhos and Patroka
I NEED THE F*CKING OST
How have none of the late game tracks been put on youtube yet?
Why was Nia definitely not?
they said she was a new Torna recruit early on in the game
So Logos and Pneuma are accounted for but what happened to the third one? Did that go for the other dimension too?
people have speculated that its Alvis
tora was retarded and didn't know morag was a woman
I didn't have the heart to call Morag a man here, what happens if you do?
Oh wow, that would make alot of sense.
Wonder if Takahashi thought that far ahead.
It's highly implied Ontos was Alvis/Monado.
Akhos and Patroka are newer, Jin was in his masked man phase when he met them
anyone need a heal?
Tora spends a lot of time trying to convince Morag to jump in until she finallt tells him she's a woman.
He gets surprised then runs off to tell the news to Poppi.
I guess he
was waiting for his very last moment to give the order for the cloud sea to disperse so that the land had the maximum possible time to heal.
I didn't know Morag was a woman until I looked her up in the artbook.
Where are Dusky Riiks in Elpys?
There's also an NPC early in the game talking about her family in the standard "it's obviously your party member but I'm gonna pretend it's not related and you'll find out in 60 hours even though I just told you" JRPG way.
That does make sense too, maxing out whatever heal time he could get.
This version of the god guy is actually pretty cool, guess the shitty side went to the other dimension.
Also who is Galea that he mentions?
IT'S BEEN 4 HOURS
WAKE THE FUCK UP
BOTH OF YOU
I've started sketching
Any idea where I can salvage the ancient salvaging suit?
I've heard it's time in combat that wakes them up.
At least all of mine have activated once I finished a battle.
stuffing your face as usual.
Most people are probably taking their time.
going by the first panel i though this was loss
Is Zeke good with Greataxes? What are his four driver arts & their effects when he has one? I know he gets smash from lances so a topple from GAs would be nice to round it all out
Someone said it's implied Morag is lesbian for her blade. Where was this?
Here comes that void after completing a great game.
what the fuck is the strategy for the fight in chapter 5 with the core thing that's being kept at full health by the power lines behind it? attacking the core does nothing, but I can barely attack the power lines for half a minute before I get fucking destroyed by it in retaliation, and there's an AOE attack every now and then too
Stack spike resist or use chain attacks.
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.
Chain attack around 2/3 or 1/2 of its HP. With 2-3 orbs, you can nuke that shit to death and avoid the core ridiculous AOE.
Might just be a retacon. The cutscene where Klaus kaboomed the universe seemed a little different than the scene we get in 2.
I might have my goggles strapped a bit too tight, but in Morag's support with Zeke's blade she doesn't seem to mind that kind of relationship.
I'm still surpsied that we got this game barely two years after X was released.
Squad Name: Contrarians
Yeah I think your goggles must be welded onto your skull.
Pandora's blade weapon is actually just a lightning rod, but zeke turned it into a massive fucking JRPG sword
could also be a hint to build up Ontos as the next big bad by indicating that he showed a half/false truth to Shulk to alter his judgment of Klaus, even Shulk says that Alvis is pretty manipulative at the end of Xenoblade.
One of the only things like about Tora is MEHMEHMEH and Poppi. I like controlling him and talking fall damage so he goes MEH MEH URAGH
literally Veeky Forums
No need to.
Morag is very bad as a tank when controlled by the AI but the best if you control her since you can abuse her dodge arts and the +% dodge when moving chips when the bosses use their big attacks.
Dude, I love when he does that.
Considering how Alvis is elusive during XB1, wouldn't be possible for him to diguise his tracks, making him not observable for XB2 Klaus? If Alvis as Ontos pretty much created that dimension, it is possible that his true nature might not be foreseen by Klaus, especially the later was about to die
anyone tried using an ether cannon?
gramps pushing Rex and Pyra together
Isn't it taboo to fuck your sword or something?
not at all, Corrine in Fonsett says that it was quite common
spoilers incase you arent end game yet
Its in the salvaging point at the world tree,at the end of the long stretch of indol enemies
Not at all.
Human-Blade marriages are a thing.
But why? It's not like you can reproduce with it.
Do blades even have holes?
Whats this suit? A new look for rex or just a accessory item? What does it do?
its just a salvage material. nothing special
It must suck to be the blade and driver after awhile in that situation. Staying forever young while some meatbag gets progressively worse and worse through the decades. I mean Vess/Mabon probably have that kind of relationship and you can see how devoted she is while he is some decrepit old man who can't do anything for himself.
I'm trying the dock 2 diving thing to get money but I'm only getting around 4k maximum even though I nail all QTEs. Am I missing something?
A lot most likely do since there's a plot point where
Zeke talks about female blades used as sex slaves.
close to hour a half later and I still haven't beaten him
Maybe I'll just go play Tiger Tiger.
Using gold cans? You can't NOT make money that way, even without any salvage blades on you. You almost always get red chests, with doubles/triples frequently. I was just doing it to get some boosters and ended up making a killing.
meh, Meh, MEH
Poppi's heart full!
GOOD FUCKING LORD
Sell your stuff to the salvage merchant in the capital. The money from chest is just extra
I'm on the fucking verge of throwing Pyra out onto the streets to make money to pay for Tora's stupid robot.
60,000 fucking quid for an earring
Just let her sell that shit.
99 cylinders worth of cores on Zeke
nothing to show for it
Yes with gold cans. I get a single gold chest every time with roughly 4k inside. Canisters are like 9k right now.
That's it, now we're cooking.
Thanks you two
Is there a point to sending money back home? Should I be doing it? So far I haven't seen anything that it could actually be used for and I did end up heading back to Fonsett already.
>nia getting rejected in the worst way
Malos's fucking monado
pyra and mythra being tortured
why did i think I wasn't going to feel today?
If you send 90k total you get a sidequest in chapter 7.
Gold cans drop down to 6k after a while.
Sell them as a set. Salvage can net you 30k easily a run sometimes.
Does anyone canonically fug their blades?
just wait till chapter 8, chum
So how exactly does "Salvaging Mastery" help? Higher odds of a second chest? Higher ranked chest? More gold in general?
im in chapter 6 out in open in ice area and i dont know why im doing so much damage
some flying thing knocked off two my teammates thought I was dead so i just did a random special and it did 100k when it wasn't in a combo
After you unlock
Tantal how many other areas are there with development levels?
I'm trying to max them all, so I want to know how many I have left.
From personal experience, I think it increases the amount of items you get outside the chests.
During the whole Zeke "one-eyed monster" bit, Rex tried to say something to Mythra and gets slapped, but it made no sense why she would do it. Was the Japanese text different because it was one of the most retarded scenes otherwise.
From my experience, high odds of chest and items with lower chance of enemies
But that's lewd...
>at one point Zeke mentions that some cores on the black market even have pictures of the blade attached to them and "human looking blades" net a lot of money
Really makes me think.
It's slang for a penis.
For some reason I just visualized a viking trying to fornicate a sword and just get blood everywhere.
Sucks some blades can't be fucked. Like Azami is literally a marionette and Adenine is hollow and made of paper. Tiddy rabbit is covered with fur from neck down to her paw pads. And Floren has a dick.
No shit, but why slap him? He didn't say anything bad.
unzips random dog blade
slap a picture of Pyra on it
Well, I already paid for it, so...
dear god did they set out to make the least fun boss fight of all time or something
maybe it's because it's 3am but fucking hell this sucks
Seal Blowdown asap whenever you fight him.
If he doesn't NOTHING PERSONAL KID you during the fight, I'll be very disappointed. And one of your characters better go HIYAI in JPN or in English someone better say h-he's fast!
Really? Well I guess I'm done then.
the closest thing to his lightspeed bullshit in battle is Empty Moment
And Roc seems to count as male or female at different parts of the story and seems to have different voices, too.
Is pyra just a trash blade? Does she have any advantage over mythra at all?
Fucking picked up.
Just the way he prances around in combat and when running cracks me up. His mannerisms when you are doing his beguiling charms conversations and how he doesn't ever correct people who call him a cute girl.
Mythra boosts crit chance while Pyra boosts crit damage.
Don't have to, she's the best.
What's her blade quest about?
Where's a list of all the heart to hearts and requirements for them?
How is she for Rex? I got her on literally my first roll out of the tutorial from a common core.
Is Rex fucked Mythra, is it considered cheating?
I don't think there is a full one yet.
If you're hunting for heart to hearts stay at various inns with various blades, sometimes you need to see a scene at an inn before a heart to heart will appear.
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.
Salvage that shit. Way faster than make your wallet bleed. Not only you will get the connectors faster, but you will get pocket change to boot.
You'll have to give me another day or so to progress through the story until her Lv5 key affinity requirement doesn't say ???.
How does Mythra know what a one eyed monster is?
There was a unique l42? blade in tantal with quest maker on it
What quest was it even for? I killed it
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.
Was my first roll as well and I used her until the end. She is pretty good and has some good use especially when you cannot use Pyra, just not a must have.
Using Floren's charm skill on a ardianan senator
He is willing to pay 500k, a house, give ten of his top soldiers and let him work any position he wants if he joins him
The power of traps
monster resist break
Just got Boreas on Rex. Should I Overdrive him to Nia?
i want my god damn ice bunny and i will kill a man to get her
I just got Kora. What am I in for?
I've gotten one tank, one damage and 5 healers
If she needs healers then yes otherwise Boreas works fine on Rex in case you need extra healing and nia doesnt cut it
Rex has Adenine and Nia has Kora.
Mentioning Boreas, where the fuck is the warehouse that you need to fill up for the affinity chart? I know its in Argentum but I can't find the damn thing.
Was I supposed to sneak my way past a bunch of level 80 monsters in chapter 4 to get to the
Zeke fight? That shit was ridiculous, I have a hard time believing that was the intended route
I hate you. I may have had to wait until the end of chapter 5 to have her, but at least I didn't have to use an overdrive to put her on the character I wanted.
Yes it was
The entrance is on one of the docks. Some jewish Noppon demands 100k for entrance, though.
I hate this because I rely on the AI to break. It feels like if it gets resisted, the AI gets really fucking depressed and doesn't try to break again until much later. I have cooldown food on your shit, I know you can break more often than that you bitch.
Past the dude you give money to to send back home make a hard left and you should see a door with nopons in front of it
Imagine being the driver of one of those dogs or something while there's guys running around with lolis and bathtubs and shit. I know it's still pretty uncommon to be a driver but still.
I am at chapter 9 and Pyra is bae. Should I chug through the rest of the story or will it be like X and I’ll lose all motivation to sidequest after the ending lets me down?
why are they called "blades" if all they do in combat is stand there and feed energy to the driver who is actually doing all the work and is doing so with an actual blade in his hands?
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.
I kind of want to write about that.
Especially because of her feelings, which I think Rex was made much more aware of. She probably feels really guilty over thinking it.
Just do it and if you don't like the ending you can still hope for the DLC to fix it. :^)
This your first Xenoblade game? Running like a scared little boy through fields of monsters sixty levels higher than you is part of the fun.
What do spiral chips do (bonus wise) and where can you farm them?
Where did you get them?
I've had the quest that needs them for a while and haven't found a single one yet.
I want to ask for source, but i am scared it may be scat.
What happened to the Nintendo General?
They give a 50% damage boost to aquatic monsters and I just got them from a quest so no farming that I know of. They are also the strongest chips I've gotten since my blades reach 800-990 in attack stats
When is someone going to figure out the RNG system in this game like they did with FFXII to guarantee rare blades by manipulating it? That shit was fucking crazy that someone even made an app for it that breaks down the RNG tables and updates it real time and shit. Casting cures and stuff to fix the RNG in your favor for chests.
To be fair blades in a sense do die when the driver does so it's not all that great on the blade's side either.
I had X, but never really did the story. And I like doing that sort of shit, it was just surprising how abundant they were in that section
That is the same bonus for all blades? Kinda eh... but I guess for attackers it is still great. Really just want flat stats and especially AGI for Morag.
The "first" one since I got one out of order is from the quest you get in Tornith. Go beyond the seller of greens and meats and look for a nopon mural and complete that quest. I found another one in Tantal in the huge frozen lake and another in
morytha after the big skill check to power up an electric circuit
Yeah sadly, i wanted something better but the attack boost is nice
rolling common cores on nia
get Kora and then Ursula
Well butter my biscuit.
blades are inherently devoted to their drivers except in the worst cases
blade never dies until the driver does, meaning there would be no widow
Sounds like blades are suited perfectly for marriage.
mythra crit refill art
like 5 times in a row until i missed a crit, pyra sucks desu senpai
anyone have the info about the sealed stones?
No one cares
buy a single thing from theosir
level up development
They weren't kidding when they said shit was expensive here.
Anyone have Mythra take over from Pyra? It's kinda cute how she cares.
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.
Mellica the Chorister
Are there any other quests in Indol?
That seems to be implied even in the game considering
So this is the power of chain attack.
The Ancient Sauros in Gormott gives 60k exp with a 400% bonus on the chain attack. You can kill it relatively easily at level 80
Are you guys doing most of the side quest, or powering through the story?
What does the beastly core crystal give? I could really use fortitude.
gives you a earth lancer with superstrength, earth mastery and focus
elemental burst: 4
8 cracked symbols
after breaking 4 symbols, it just breaks the rest of them to go into full burst
I'm only on chapter 4, but I'm loving Mythra so far. Her tsundere personality is more appealing to me than Pyra's shy older sister personality.
someone should probably remove the "XC2 has no connection to XC1" thing in the pastebin
tfw got Kora on Rex and Ursula on Morag
I hate this shit system
For most of the game this is pretty true at least. Leave it just so most people will be shocked when Malos pulls out his fucking Monado.
Oh baby part 2
Can you ever unequip Pyra/Mythra?
How are you guys getting white/gold chests when you salvage? I have Boreas and Praxis both with Salvage Mastery 3 and I'm still getting just red ones.
How are some of you guys at chapter 9/10 already? I'm still on chapter 4 with 40 hours.
Anybody know the name of the song that plays during the last cutscene of chapter 3, the one with vocals?
Talk to the guy that sold you Sheba with her in your party to get 250k back
It's not in the current soundtrack so no official name yet I think.
It also plays int the story trailer.
Vandham was too pure for this world
Did you just blast through the story?
I literally took the whole weekend and a day off just to play. I really wanted to know how it is related to XC1 so I rushed to the end as good as possible. Now I'm taking things slowly and do some side quests and stuff.
Sounds like this would go really well with one person driver combos
Yeah i've been looking everywhere for it?
Has the full thing been ripped and uploaded anywhere?
Hard to find especially since theres no name to search for it by
Nope, I just have alot of time on my hands
Being laid off sucks
There's no full OST release. No line-in rip because game doesn't have a music player. No game rip because new encryption I guess.
when does the poppi qt pi quest show up
I did the heart to heart in leftherian and nothing
Those are only really possible with premium cylinders. I dont think Ive ever since them without them
You weren't under leveled at any point?
I took the last week off work and have 80 hours
tfw I'm in chapter 7 and inn XP makes me consistently overleveled for everything
Right now the storyline stuff has level 46 stuff and my party average is level 55.
I was fine most of the time but I leveled from time to time if I felt like I had to. I also noticed that good chain attacks against strong enemies give you a ton of exp as well.
he uses my team
Also, looking kinda cool rex. I'm only on Chapter 6 atm with 60 hours
get plenty of ATK and TNK blades through story and sidequests
literally 0 HLR blades
Is there any reason whatsoever to have anyone other than Nia open core crystals?
I'm overleveled just fighting shit and farming for stuff. I absolutely wrecked act4 to the point that no enemies ever aggroed on me and the boss fight everyone had issues with I just stomped them without any plan. I'm at the very start of act5 and if I rest now, I'll be level 50 on everyone or higher.
going through the Titan Battleship
run into the Scout on the midship walkway
he runs away and alerts the next room full of identical guards
"THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME DON'T FORGET ME THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME THINK YOU CAN T-THINK YOU CAN TAKE ME DON'T FORGE-THINK YOU CAN TAKE M-DON'T FORGET ME-NK YOU CAN TAKE ME"
so this is the true power of the empire
This is your sleeping buddy for tonight.
You get Vess who is a good healer through a sidequest.
it's quite funny if you kill the guards in there before alerting him he still runs in and just stands there like "Uh?"
oh right, forgot I had her
ok 1 healer
Was there any good shit I missed in indol? I know there was a few sidequests I didnt do.
How do you get Blades with high strength? I'm trying to do some Merc Missions that require 35+ Str and adding chips only increases the auto-attack damage and not str. I don't see any items to equip for blades that increase it either but I may just be out entirely.
Probably won't fit on my bed
I'm in chapter 4 and I'm supposed to head into the wastes but the gate at the dock is still locked and there doesn't seem to be a way around. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Go underground where the barrels where previously.
It's not scat, the bottom of her suit is open and that's it.
and floren has a dick
How is this a downside, her feminine penis makes her a better healer.
This one confused the shit out of me too. I was surprised that you NEED to make the skill check in order to progress.
That one with the level 3 super strength? Fucking christ. Good thing poppi is best blade otherwise I'd be mad
theres more in the future, be sure to bond with all those common blades!
I've already beaten the game and after that point I had gotten far more blades.
What's the proper cancel timing for the fist weapons? The first rare blade I drew was Kora and I can't seem to use her right.
Strength is the number of spots unlocked in the Affinity Chart. So complete goals for a character's affinity chart to increase their strength.
You have to rank them up to get more STR. I think probably the ones with a lot of nodes like 3 star commons will reach 35 STR or higher. I think I may have some that are 25-30. Any of the 35 STR ones I am forced to send out unique blades.
So Gonzalez is the same level as the Sauros but gives about 14th the experience
that part where you where forced to examine the foot prints
don't get the right skills after blowing all my cores
ask that guy for help
"Are you retarded, what kind of driver are you, lol."
Rex talking to his parents
I bet those were just two random-ass graves. Rex you sly shotaboy you.
It's hard to get use to because they are so fast, but its just as the attack makes contact. If it's on Rex and you are talking about canceling arts. Then it's always on the last hit of a multi attack.
Goes to show that Godzilla > King Kong
I had Godfrey long before then and his sense of justice works the same as Keen eye, so I don't even need to make the skill check.
I like her design and her artifice too, but when it comes down to it I like Nia's personality better.
What is the point of the skill checks in the middle of the
Rank 3 Mercenary quest? The quest just goes on without it.
Can you fuck a blade?
It just gives you more information about the characters. So if you like extra dialog, then it's cool.
Thanks. Yeah, I'm talking about canceling arts.
Yes. Zeke talks about Bandits killing Drivers, taking their Female Blades and selling them as sex slaves.
Got stopped yesterday at the cable links, seems like the best option is to grind on the core to get party gauge up, then go after the cables, get it down to half and activate Lv 3 arts, then start the chain combo.
That sound about right? Any more straightforward way, and recommended party? Zeke seems like he's doing well so I have him, Morag and Rex as the team, but i'm worried about dropping a dedicated healer.
What the actual fuck were they thinking when they gave the soldiers this VA work? Why are they saying "Don't forget me?" Is this DEEPEST LORE?
how does that work? couldn’t the blade just kill their buyer?
They need to make a game where you can see the Drivers and Blades in the overworld do you can pick and choose who you kill because you know you're gonna get their Core Crystal.
They wouldn't have any memory and Blades have an intrinsic loyalty to their Driver. The only reason a Blade seems to ever consider killing their Driver is if they do something that the Blade just can't agree with no matter what, since there is a base personality to them.
Shit can you impregnate blades too?
No idea on that. They do seem to have bodily functions, but given the life cycle of Blades you find out later. Probably not.
going through Uraya
strange weather not sure if dust or sprinkling rain
strolling through the stomach area
notice all the deer-like enemies near the trees are a different color scheme and now around fucking level 70
return when the weather is normal
they've returned back their normal color scheme and are level 22
XC1 did similar with weather. If it was raining, you could find uniques that normally wouldn't be there and certain enemies would be higher level.
Back at it again after grinding named monsters, middle of chapter 3 where Pyra just decides to up and leave. Also grinding quests for Perun where you already did the easy quests is bull.
Current Rare Blades:
Nia:Floria, Agate, Zenobia
Already decided one overdrive is going to Zeke for Zenobia, where should Agate go to?
tantal is completely filled with these shits
please tell me it's just the climate and they'll go away eventually
Wait till you see the flying squids.
Does the weather change if you keep changing time like in XC1 or do I need to go to an inn?
On the note of weather
Thunderstorm in Gamott
I go to the inn both in and out of the party and sleep for the night, explore the whole floor with the inn, nothing. Why does the game lie about the conversation trigger?
Added a bunch of new Deeds for Goldmouth and Torigoth
The interesting ones here are two that boost EXP by 10%, and another one that boosts gold gained in battle by 10%.
You might not have the required party members for the conversation. I hear that was a major issue for some.
Leftheria is a shitty place this whole area gives me cancer.
Anyone know where to grind out the items for Herald easily?
Go fast travel to the head of uraya and grab stuff from collection points with botany skills on. Walk that long stretch then fast travel back and do it again. The item is black pomegranate for something
spent last 1.5 hours grinding up dev levels
last save was 2 hours ago
Put Agate on Rex. Use Pyra/Mythra to topple, switch to Agate, launch, and smash.
That's a big chest.
last save was 2 hours ago
I'm just wondering, whose fault is it that the last save is two hours ago?
It actually makes senses since they’re different species. Zeke says he can only recognize female Nopons die to their clothing, and since Morag wears men’s clothes...
That makes sense. I suppose I'll have to hope that's the case. thanks user
manipulate particles to speed himself up to near lightspeed, cancel attacks, and freeze things down to absolute zero
Why is he so broken?
Agate gives him both launch and smash? I have Dagas and his greataxe only has launch. I rely on Roc for smash.
Who's fault is it that a game is unstable enough that you can't go more than 2 hours without incurring a chance of a crash? Bethesda?
Is Morag an agility tank like Dunban?
That's entirely a different matter though. You can save whenever and wherever you want, several in-game actions also commit a save, you KNOW the game is unstable.... yet you haven't saved.
Just saying. The crash isn't your fault, the lack of a save is.
Man, that story keeps getting better and better. Chapter 5's introduction...
Just wait until chapters 6 and 7.
what are the best heal rare blades ?
Is there a list of what pouch items Blades like most?
Depends on who they're attached to. Nia for example won't do as well with a dodge tank like Finch, but Morag will.
goddamn you are overleveled as fuck son
If it helps put a smile on people's faces If it helps them live their lives together Then, that's my place in this woooorld!
Why did it take until the final boss fight for English Rex to deliver a line like that?
on nia for example i have vess dromarch and boreas. should i give her also adenie and change with boreas?
It's hard to recommend swapping Blades because the item you need to do so is so rare.
Please tell me Pyra/Mythra get together at the end.
Adenine isn't that great of a healer, okay damage.
If you're grinding drops she's got good perks though.
release a bunch of healing rare blades from Morag
roll on Nia
she gets KOS-MOS, Azami, and Perceval
The healing blades that I released end up on Zeke instead
Honestly I think it's better just to roll everything on one character then pick and choose wisely with the few overdrives you get. The blades you get from sidequests are a godsend since they ensure your drivers aren't gimped.
Define "get together"
Is there a way to
change Rex's clothes back after chapter 7?
I don't like change.
I loved that entire scene. Took tons of screen shots of lewd oneechan and sleepy grandpas.
So you can reroll rare blades?
No, it is permanent
Some of them just seem like they wouldn't get any use though if you roll what you actually want. Like Kasandra is a nice filler but I'd rather a real AGI tank on Morag. And Wulfric is good but I'd rather have KOS-MOS, or Zenobia. Good thing Herald is guaranteed though.
I meant to say Rex and Pyra/Mythra.
So you can confirm if you release a rare you can re-roll it on someone else and the warning is just a "it will be a pain to find them again" thing?
that mecha laila
I can now die happily.
I've been doing a lot of side stuff.
Yeah, they keep their affinity too even if they end up on another character.
I don't think you can release one of a kind rare blades, like Vess or Praxis but since you can pick who you want them on it shouldn't matter at all.
What influence does a character have on the rolls as an end product?
Well, end game spoilers, obviously
They "do" if you read between the lines. Their feelings are mutual and the game doesn't hide that, especially chapter 8 and 10. But if you want an "official" couple scene and stuff like that, no.
Was confirmed already that releasing quest related ones like Wulfric and Sheba can be rerolled.
Their Idea Cloid has an influence on the element of the Blades they roll, which could affect the probability of getting certain rares.
Rolled Dahlia on Rex early to the game, I'm wondering if I should overdrive her to Nia instead or is there any reason I should keep a healer on Rex?
Poppi's second form
This whole part has been the best part in the game yet.
aegaeon looks so much like the generic common blades that i struggle to find him on the blade list sometimes
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 your cylinders in one of them, salvage in mor adain
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.
Didn't mean to quote, sorry.
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
IRON HEART BEATS IN POPPI'S CHEST!
Why is every single of her lines perfect?
Anyone know Wulfrics favourite board game?
Perfect lines from a perfect girl.
Well that's effective. Thanks.
Added a lot of deeds for Uraya, both in Garfont and Fonsa Myma
Don't do this
Replace it with htmlview
The idea is that anyone can edit and add information to this
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.
Anyone know where to get acid tomatos?
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.
A tiny bit into chapter 6.
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
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
What does everyone make of this?
what's a good place to grind her stuff? I have tons of blades that have the fish field skill, anyone know where to find the lazy crayfish or poisoned fish?
He doesn't qualify as female or beast, either.
