Changes to Torna gameplay

>blades are playable, can switch at will
>switching is it's own art (i.e Jin has a topple effect when switched, rearguard/vanguard mechanic, those in the rear use a different set of arts automatically)
>all blades combat arts are called after their specials
>you can heal a set percentage of health took when damaged by switching
>personal talent arts from XB1
>no blade combo (will likely be available later)
>drivers have own element affinity, can be changed at will with different weapons
>set party members, no core crystal mechanic (not confirmed but 100% likely)
>reserve party members
>camping, can make pouch items
>aux cores are auto-filled, no more crafting
>collection points show you what type of items there are
>NPC's have their own little quirk line
>likely have Torna + 2-3 revamped Titans
>UI changes, for instance: Jin/Lora replace Rex/Pyra for the drivers and blades menu, enemy arts are showed in a big purple box

>>223942376
well, one of those is QoL. i didn't see that one. yeah definitely. though it was actually kind of fun figuring out which was likely to have which type, and they made sense given their location. still, it's a good thing 90% of item collection was meaningless in this game or I would have been less happy about it.

can you explain why this appears to be the lower Gula area with vines and trees and shit, including some in the foreground? Is that part of how they removed the fog, just set the scene up somewhere without it?

I dunno but I'v read around here (or was it ion /a/?) a very limited quantity would be made available for preorder this week, though with no date whatsoever. It may already be finished already.

Huh, the little video that plays on aion's screen of the cast escaping doesn't reflect the costumes. It's a pre-rendered graphic.

>>223975432
Actually seems more likely for a leak that said Elma was in
>>
>>223980852
The escape scene is likely to much to handle without loading in between. The start of the game doesn’t use them either for scenes where Rex is underwater.
>>
>>223980852
and the same appears to be so for everything at the very end.
Never noticed before seiryu's core crystal isn't visible in his chest in his large mode. there's a glowing area but that's it.
total Neverending Story vibes at the end, is that just me?
also the third Ars we see joining the land is not one I recognize. looks like a generic whale type with a lot of glowy green on its back

It's loaded with wacky graphical glitches, but some versions of cemu can run it with fairly good stability. I'm using 1.11.1 right now, and it seems to be doing okay. Usually you can tell if you're going to have a problem as soon as you get to the barracks, because most versions will lock up in there most of the time. The jumbotron next to the church is another offender if you're testing stability.
It does let you play with things like higher resolution, fixed sound levels (English or Japanese) and fundoshi if you want to take the time to track down the necessary resources.
>>
>>223992906
1.13 and 1.14 (Patreon Only) fixed almost all of the graphical issues with XBX. 1.14 will have the biggest changes when it goes public later this month.
>>
>>223993069
The graphical problems are a minor concern compared to stability. Do you know if they fixed that? Most versions aren't really playable due to random crashes as well as the repeat offenders in certain areas and cutscenes. I wouldn't mind using a version that got rid of the black tiles and purple rocks.
>>
>>223993298
Stability is fixed in 1.14 because they moved to Vulkan, which basically solved so many issues, it's not even funny. I actually just played through XBX on 1.14 and had zero crashes. The only issues were a weird dip from 60 FPS to 45 FPS while using some vendors and some shadows took a few seconds to pop in, but that's hardly anything to care about. Near perfect, honestly.
>>

>>
>>223993537
It's a pretty great update. If you care about Hyrule Warriors or Breath of the Wild, both of those are basically near perfectly rendered as well. The only last real issues are with shadows taking a bit to load in, but they've said that shadow improvements are the focus of 1.15 in the future. 1.15 will be close to "feature complete" and then most of them are moving on over to the Switch emulator they've got in progress.

It would be better, obviously.

Though I never had a problem with gacha, I got all the Blades besides KOS-MOS before the end. And I just had to grind Arduran for like 1h30 (both to reach lv.99 for completion, and to get some Legendary Cores) to get KOS-MOS. I have had far worse grinding in other jRPGs, to be fair.

When you have a luck parameter to change the odds, you use it. Simple as that.
>>
>>224063520
I'd have been less annoyed overall but I also wouldn't have done many of them since so many rare blades are shitty waifubait, whereas the gacha at least has some really good ones you likely won't get until you have almost all of them.

Monolith Soft realized people were poking through their game files and removed the data. They were trying to hide her information and failed.

>Oh yeah, and to add to this, but they actually did seem to try to hide her existence. The list of enemies calls her Riki, but they left the debug name in on the parameter page. They actually hid the AI and started using vague placeholder names like "dlcblade" for them. The debug names for her Arts are also not the complete terms, but they match up to her Arts. They must know that it's English fans who have the datamine info, so maybe they were hoping that half names of Arts that were localized under other names would be a pain to figure out.

>>224063520
Improved. Meaningful sidequests are always a good thing and X showed you can do great things with them.

The other thing I would accept is giving standard non-rare Blades more defining features. So you might get a common with a shiny hat or weapon skin, and that corresponds to them having a rare skill or improved stats. So you can at a glance see that they're different.
>>
I hope they release these last two blades soon. Putting them right next to or after the Torna release would be idiotic unless they're planning for that to unlock a bunch of stuff in the base game.

Let's talk about the real QoL. Have they ever declared the special's damage type and modifier's or are we still reliant on hack reports?

Will it actually be fucking finished on launch and not wait over 3 months to fix shit that should have been in a basic playthrough like rabbit stripper's quest?
>>
>>224063520
Undeniably better. The whole system just needed more time to be developed and nobody who played the game for a significant amount of time didn't want to blow their brains out from the godawful opening animation QoL Every gacha ever had skips and draw X but the nips never ever learn from the past.

Because of moveset/stat weight fuckery, story blade lock, and the power gaps between similar blades, a bunch of them basically didn't exist if you pulled them on the wrong character

Because rare rates were too low, it was a shit idea to release them to try to re-pull. But in a similar vein, 4 crown commons to farm some overdrive protocol's were so late in the game that you couldn't be arsed to care once you could actually get some.

The affinity charts for common's badly needed archetype weightings so they could have gotten clusters of useful skills.
Many rares and story blades were also simply too strong by orders of magnitude. It's one thing to try to ensure that anyone can clear the game with the story/fixed rares. It's another to just not fix the system

Core crystal caps were terrible. A game with a size in GB's should be able to hold 999 core crystals. Especially if the fucktarded radiation slurpers want to so strictly limit the amount of blades you could have.
The idea item booster caps were a constant headache for no good reason.
Wasn't other boosters or a multi-draw to help

You can only hold so many blades at each phase of the game, but for much of the game you couldn't unequip story blades. Meanwhile, you wanted a bunch for field skills, luk mod, item find, weapon and element combinations, driver combo components, and a third for when you could unequip them it rapidly maxed out your roster
And speaking of blade caps, all of the management menu's were utter dogshit with no sane design choices. The only thing worse than designing a system where you want to juggle a shit ton of characters is when you make the management of that a living hell to reroll

Anon, the Xeno series is long known for overshooting and underdelivering when it comes to consistency in game design. Have you not played Gears and Saga? Those games also got fucked by various development problems and rushed releases. Xenoblade 1 (and maybe X) are the only games in the franchise that didn't have this problem to a noticeable extent. If you can't appreciate ambitious jank, then this series isn't for you.
>>
>>224085389
Sorry, accessory "items" which didn't have a category sort cause...???

>>224085395
For most of the game you didn't have a full playset of the ultimate max stat accessories and they weren't sortable by category so you'd have to keep checking an external list which DID have the various tiers of a mod type clustered properly then work backwards through an accessory list that took much much much longer to pgup/dn through than was needed. It's not very dramatic to want a basic sorting feature that's been cemented for eons.

XC1 is definitely worth a try even if you didn't like XC2. There's no gacha bullshit, no field skills, the interface is MUCH better, and most of the RPG mechanics don't require the level of pedantic micromanagement that XC2 does. Also, this game alone is not a good reason to hate Monolith Soft. They did good work in BotW and a bunch of other first-party Nintendo titles.

Xenoblade 1 was probably the safest game ever put out. It had a ready design blueprint with Soma Bringer and had the most simplistic setting and story of any Monolith Soft console RPG. But being on a tight leash gave the game some well-needed polish.

>And it almost got screwed by not being released here. we had to DEMAND it.
I wanna guess that Monolith Soft's 6th gen history kind of rubbed NoA the wrong way. Baten Kaitos and Xenosaga weren't exactly smash hits and Xenoblade apparently cost quite a bit to localize and dub. They didn't wanna take chances on a game they didn't think would sell well.

That's not really how it works. Being able to secure Japanese VA licenses for western releases is not guaranteed. Granted, this isn't a problem for big publishers like Nintendo, but it's still a pretty big one for smaller publishers who don't have the money and/or business ties to secure them. Another factor is that Nintendo isn't just appealing to the hardcore weeb crowd with this game (believe it or not). They wouldn't have given Xenoblade 2 its budget and longevity through DLC and content patches if it was relegated to a niche audience. Most people expect dubbed audio in their games and Nintendo tends to cater to the majority for business reasons.

Their union is also a lot stricter than the American one, which is good in some ways (more pay for re-use) and bad in others (the seniority system). Still, like the other anon said, it's not really an issue for bigger publishers unless they're just being cheap shits.

they're almost all like that. the translators wanted to flex their muscles I guess, or they thought the pure latin didn't sound good enough (or sounded too samey?)

>>
>>224105313
Skye Bennett said on one of her Xenoblade streams that some of the names for places and characters were changed because of the difficulty for voice actors to pronounce them. Pyra was obviously changed because your average Joe wouldn't know what Homura meant, but Kagutsuchi was changed because only Skye and Jules (her VA) could actually pronounce the name properly, while no one else could. Rex's VA was supposedly really bad with the majority of names.

Dubs were a mistake.
>>
>>224105547
That obviously has nothing to do with Latin names, idiot.
>>
>>224105313
It would have been because the seven deadly sins in Latin is nowhere near as exotic to westerners as it would be to Japanese people who aren't taking a third of their vocabulary from that language.

I definitely think changing the names of most of the countries was a good decision.
>>
>>224106190
I'm going to assume you're just trolling at this point.
>>
>>224106293
the only one I wish they hadn't changed (or at least I wish they had preserved the meaning better) was acedia.
other than that, I prefer the dub country names a lot more. they do a good job of keeping the theme without sounding as homogeneous as the latin ones do.
>>
>>224105547
>changing the random mythology references to equivalents that English people might be familiar with was done just so they could be pronounced easier
That's bizarre to me. Compare Brighid to Kagutsuchi, for instance. Brighid is a name people are familiar with, has the same connection with fire and is based in Celtic mythology which complements Mor Ardain's Scottish accents. Or Dromarch (from Dormarch) which similarly has Welsh origins instead of being a random "4 cardinal creatures" namedrop. Being easier to pronounce seems like small change compared to how it complements the different nationalities in the game.
>>
>>224106951
It sounds like a degree of competence to me. If you must change a term for a logistical reason (and British people are notoriously awful at pronouncing exotic words even amongst English speakers), where possible you should try to retain the original flavor.
The real issue was leaving the generic blade names Japanese when they should never have been Japanese to begin with, though I can see why the name blender/generator might have made things impractical for Western names.

Since the July update was the last batch of side quests for the pass, I figured I'd go ahead and post some of the datamined quest information that was never added and cut.
>Zeke and Dromarch quest chain, was related to Zeke's Eye of Shining Justice
>Pyra cooking quests for more recipes
>Quest chain related to Vandham doing something for the orphans
>Side quest to help Cole write a play
>Morag quest that involves revealing more of her backstory and how she got Brighid
>Unidentified Nia quest
>"Mecha Poppi" quest. (This might have become Poppibuster, maybe?)
>Preparing for Haze's funeral
>Mythra and Pyra picnic quest
>Mythra's Memories quest
Most are inferred by references in the files, but there's actual partial scripts for stuff like Zeke and Dromarch's, which is a shame it wasn't added because it's fucking hilarious. The picnic quest looked related to the cut cooking quests, and the Mythra Memories quest has references to the removed "vision" cutscenes that were intended to play whenever you reached a new Titan. The only one out of this bunch that is implemented even slightly is the Vandham quest, but only the quest acceptance trigger, and if you save edit to force it, you just get a blank quest window and then it basically breaks your game because pressing +, - and the screenshot button causes it to crash. All in all, some interesting stuff that I wish was added to the game.
>>
>>224217837
Eight conditions is the most it's set to ask for. And a correction, but I think it's not meant to unlock her nodes.

AND Party (Elma) AND Party (Rex) AND Party (Mythra) AND Party (Shulk) AND Party (KOS-MOS) AND Flag (1556) AND Achievement (118) AND Achievement (122)
Flag (1556) references specific nodes already being unlocked for Elma.
Achievement (118) is the unlock node for Elma's final row of nodes.
Achievement (122) is the fourth node of Elma's first Field Skill.

It seems that if all these conditions are met, an NPC named ??? will appear at the World Tree with a shop menu (contents of shop currently unknown, but it can be like a traveling bard's menu). It may not be an actual character since the NPC is listed with no nationality or gender, so it could be a machine. But I think that going to this area triggers a short cutscene. This might even be related to the pocket watch from the Land of Morytha. I don't think they ever resolved that after all.

It's a shame that stuff didn't make it into the game. I found the vast majority of the sidequests were really forgettable, even the blade quests.
I think I would've preferred more quests focusing on the party members and other story characters over rare blade stuff, honestly.
>>
>>224220510
I completely agree. I was disappointed they didn't go the route of everyone having a personal quest chain in the game. It would've added a lot more depth to each character, and I always find party interaction immensely enjoyable.

They only exist at tier I and tier II. The tier II versions were originally only obtainable across the five Tiger! Tiger! stages from the big treasure chests after reaching chapter 8, but the Challenge Mode update lets you trade Noponstones for them instead, along with Fast Blade Switch V, Physical Defense Up V, Ether Defense Up V, and Double Attack III, which were also exclusive to Tiger! Tiger!. The only other Tiger! Tiger! exclusives are the Master Stat Mods and Element Core: Light, which can be obtained from traveling bards in NG+.

I wrote that. What the heck happened with the formatting though, that should all be in katakana, not question marks.

Debug name is エルマ (Eruma/Elma).
Debug names for her enemy Arts are (or rather, were)
>AT
>スラバー (Sli-Bur) - from スライドバースト (Slide Burst/Sliding Slinger)
>バイガン (Vi-Gun) - from バイオレンスガンズ (Violence Guns/Violent Streak)
>エクス (Exe) - from エクスキューション (Execution/Executioner)
>ゴースト (Ghost) - from ゴーストステージ (Ghost Stage/Ghost Factory)
>ハンドレッド (Hundred) - from ハンドレットモータル (Hundred Mortal/Hundred Shells)
>シャドウ (Shadow) - from シャドーストライク (Shadow Strike/Shadowstrike) or シャドーランナー (Shadow Runner/Shadowrunner), probably the former since it's one of her signature Arts
>オーバー (Over) - from オーバーエッジ (Over Edge/Upper Hand)
>バック (Back) - from バックブレード (Back Blade/Background Noise), the only Art based off a Skill

They removed all the debug names, but she still exists in the Blade info, still without her name. Interestingly enough, it now says she has a unique weapon type that uses the motions of Twin Rings while not actually being Twin Rings. Looking at the weapon, it seems to be functionally identical to Fiora's Knives, but Elma is no longer a HLR, but now ATK. Guess that means we're still without a Dark HLR.

Also of note is that Kamuyu's weapon is also now a unique weapon that's identical to a Chroma Katana.

reasons why xc2 is a shitty game:

>vapid character writing

>forced to one pure healer
>shitty writing that uses flashbacks to tell the story for the last 30% of the game
>atrocious voice acting
>one good song in the soundtrack
>meaningless side quests
>atrocious and convoluted progression system
>stale combat system
>grind to collect more loot boxes to find new weapons that don't matter
>literally the weapons don't matter because if they're bound to the wrong person you're fucked until you can grind for overdrive protocols
>by the time you can grind for overdrive protocols, the game is already over and finding blades is solely for collecting purposes
>no replayability
>pyra ends up being alive after sacrificing herself? whats the fucking point of writing in a sacrifice?
>english dub is literally a fucking joke why does amalthus sound like microsoft sam

i went from playing xc2 straight into playing ni no kuni 2 and while nnk has it's shortcomings (wars) the difference in character writing, story and world building is night and day. anyways prove to me that xc2 is a good game.

Can we discuss the ending of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for a fucking second?
I really, REALLY enjoyed the story of the game with all its plotwists, but godamn the very end pissed me off.
The after credits scene of Xenoblade 2 literally ruins the ending.
I liked it before then, but I suppose we have to bring Pyra and Mythra back or otherwise people would be sad. Don't want anybody to feel sad now would we.
Fuck, I could probably handle them being brought back if thats ALL that happaned. After all to be fair Malos survived what seemed to be a fatal blow and Aegis's in general seem to have some trippy life granting abilities, so thats fine.
But what is ABSOLUTELY unacceptable is Pyra and Mythra getting their memories back and remembering Rex.
What? She returned to her core crystal. Blades forget everything when they return to their core crystal.
THE LITERAL VILLAINS ENTIRE MOTIVATION AND A CRUX OF THE ENTIRE PLOT WAS HOW UNFAIR THE LIFE OF A BLADE IS, DESTINED TO FORGET AND BE REAWAKENED FOREVER.
You can't just shit on that for the sake of a Disney happy ending, what the fuck.
>>
>>224276521
Did you pay attention to the part that explains how a blade loses their memories in the first place?
>>
>>224276907
By returning to the core crystal. Did they explain it further than that? Because if they did I sure as fuck don't remember it.
>>
>>224276521

the entire story is inconsistent and filled with plot holes. why does nia get her original costume back in cutscenes even if she's your blade? was there another ocean underneath the cloud sea? if the artificial blades could fly to space, why didn't torna just ride them up the world tree? why is rex able to live without the core crystal? plus many more

the entire game is filled with stupid fan service bull shit. the very fact that you can make nia your blade is a testament to how waifu collecting simulator this game is

it's annoying that people treat this as an insanely good game just because the ending tugs on some pretty basic emotional strings and leave you at that, so people leave the game with a positive impression. (mind you, 90% of the ending's emotional strength is carried by the soundtrack; 150% if you played with english dub)
>>
>>224277097
play the game again, then. that's what NG+ is for. you missed something supremely important if you think that applies to the girls.
>>
>>224276521
Anon, Blades forget everything because their data goes to the Aegis, Pyra and Mythra are the Aegis
Now think about where the data of the Aegis would go when Blade data goes to the Aegis
>>
>>224277097
When blades return to their core crystals, they're sending all of their accumulated data to the Aegises for processing, who then send back instructions on how the blade should evolve.
So there's no reason Pyra and Mythra would've lost their memories, since they'd just be sending them right back to themselves.
>>
>>224277323
it's established she can change back. she appears in both forms in cutscenes. underneath the cloud sea is the same old earth but wiped pretty much clean. it looked like the ocean was gone, but either way all the old dirt and everything is gone. why is that a plot hole? the rest of that they explained clearly in-game.
>>

The Core Crystals at the heart of each Blade are tasked with relaying all kinds of information to Logos and Pneuma... About the selection pressures of the outside world, and the biological status of their bonded human, but also the experiences and emotions they share.
Pyra gave Rex her life force at the start of the game, Rex gave Pyra her memories upon re-resonating at the end of the game; since Pyra is the Aegis, why would she forget when she can redownload her past Blade data?
https://youtu.be/xMGe_QrSjlo?t=721
On the contrary, Rex states how wrong Jin's and Torna's perspective of a Blade's life cycle is, and makes comparisons betweens Driver and Blades (the unity old Torna and Rex and friends achieve with the power of friendship, and what new Torna couldn't with their pity party).

>>224277323
Nia is shown to be able to switch between Driver and Blade Form at will, like healing Jin before the Amalthus fight.
Artifices != Artifical Blades, and there'd be no reason for Mikhail to drop Jin and Malos off at the World Tree if they could've rode the Monoceros into space. Although I forgot the particular reason why they couldn't ascend beyond.
Pyra shared life force with Rex at the beginning, and gave Rex all of it at the end so he could live (and why she returned to her Core Crystal, "dying" until re-resonance).

Wait, they were sending the memories to the Aegis's? I thought the memories were going to the low orbit station and then going into the cloud sea birthing more titans and new core crystals with the knowledge learned.
Clearly I misunderstood something somewhere.

the key bit you're missing is that the holy grails may be blades, but they aren't blades that come from core crystals (the things that people were using as fucking brain implants)
they're blades that come from the computer cores of the main fucking computer in the station thank you very much mr. not spoilermarking anything. they ARE the computer cores. several times they make it clear they have information they don't know how they got, abilities to access parts of the station's system, memories of the elysium habitat, etc.
>>
>>224278671

yes, but when all that information is thrown into such a small period of time, barely explained at the very tail end of the game, it reeks of poor planning/over-ambitious story telling.

I spent a while grinding when just solo as Rex to deal with the side-missions (those fucking cunt bowman bird bastards took me an hour) available before getting Poppi because I thought finishing her would take me to the dreadnought immediately and lock me out of them, but besides that I've just been exploring, levelling blade affinities, doing side-content, and playing some tiger tiger.

Dude, what the hell have you been doing so far

>>224384263
Like I said in >>224380653 I just tried to do everything available and made sure to check out as much of it as possible.

I think the only time I wasted was running around solo as Rex grinding to do what I thought were limited time missions.
>>
>>224384669
For the most part, sidequests in XB2 aren't time limited. I believe there are only 5 or so in the game that you can miss, and they're all very minor.
>>
>>224384669
Someone really ought to make a completionist's guide that goes through the entire game chronologically and points out what's unlockable starting when. The Japanese guidebook kinda has this, but if we figure out how to read certain pages of the datamine, we could end up making a guide that covers literally every last thing of the game, anything from when specific side-quests become available to when specific NPCs get new dialogue.
>>
>>224384954
Cheers for the heads up.

Do any of the DLC quests get locked out if you buy the pass late?
>>
>>224386887
Nope.
>>
>>224386887
No, they can be done as long as you've reached the minimum. Here's a list of all scenario events and their requirements, but it's not easily readable.
https://xenoblade.github.io/xb2/bdat/common/FLD_ConditionScenario.html
ID: The scenario number.
Referenced By: Links to the other conditions required for each scenario. If it's unreferenced, activating the scenario was never programmed into the game.
ScenarioMin: The earliest point it's possible to do something.
ScenarioMax: The latest point it's possible to do something (10048 seems to mean that it's still possible to do even if you beat the game).
NotScenarioMin/Max: Gaps between ScenarioMin and ScenarioMax that act as exceptions, like if you don't have Pyra.

At least that's how I think it goes.

God, I got those two so late, it feels weird seeing them in that early fight.
that's why I was actually looking forward to NG+, a friend of mine actually intentionally played through the game a second time BEFORE NG+ was announced, and said it was this really neat feeling getting them in a different order... but on the other hand I'm glad I didn't have to roll again. fuck that.

It's the wonder of core system.

I did what your friend did, although it was after NG+ was released. Part of it was Autism to get a good Unnamed Core blade for Rex (Since you can save scum it)
Adenine was also an extreme version of the desire sensor for me. I wanted her early on again was to get the Treasure Wisdom skill. I got her dead last

Just finished the grind for a second time. It's not as bad as people claim because you just use it to fill out the affinity charts for blades

Yes, the skell kills the feeling the exploration.
>>
>>224422727
Each hexagon has a single event (a quest, affinity mission, tyrant or treasure) tied to unlocking it, so don't worry about doing everything in them. I would say explore as much as you can before you get your mech though, since being able to jump much higher does change what you can reach and puts a new leash on exploration.

>>224426531
wait what???
god dammit, what happens if you go there towards the end of the game when there's, yknow, something interesting to see near the tree?
that whole place is weird, it's hard to have clear weather at all, but I know for a fact the one near the dock is ALWAYS opaque (it's in the BACK right? so you shouldnt be able to see the tree. the HEAD is facing the tree)
>>
>>224426814
look at the screenshot I just posted, it's genbu port, the dock you're talking about. the first screenshot was there too.
I guess it must turn opaque once genbu moves to the tree? that's kind of retarded.

the weather can't be responsible when it's the weather INSIDE the body though. Unless it's actually fogged up
I got very confused my first time in there and thought we were on the surface. then I thought it had straight-up holes (which it seems to). neither of those fits at all with the "it's submerging! we only have 30 minutes before it crushes itself!" plot so they have to be windows, but siren had no trouble sending a beam through one so they have to be totally radiotransparent to... what, infrared at least, right?

Once you hit a certain point of proficiency, Pneuma is only good for Chain Attacks and stacking any orbs you might be missing. Losing access to Mythra, Pyra, and your other two Blades on Rex including potential Driver Combo Blades can cripple you.
>>
>>224416704
I'd say that the lack of an Encyclopedia hurts the reason to explore. Finding all the areas to add to your map is one thing, but there's really no point in fighting anything but unique monsters, most of which will outlevel you.

What are the techniques and items?
>>
>>224526665
Not him and probably you will get better advice but here I go:

-Give your characters a way to self heal, like avant grade Mytrha.
-Build Tora, Morag will not be able to most of the things you will be facing.
-Your enemies will enter elemental mode so you will need Shulk to dispel it, it is recommended to bring burst symbols to deal more damage.
-Doom resistance items, also dark blades seem to resist it better.

Weird how Lora has the highest HP stat while Hugo has the lowest, though the single level difference is probably to blame for that.
Addam will probably end up as the squishy fighter all about big damage and low defense.
Hugo seems to be going for the dodge tank role like Morag, and Addam looks to be close behind to offset the lower HP.
>>
>>224518443
Zeke has the worst Smash in the whole game. You should be using Roc on Rex. I don't care of he's not fun to use at first. He's the best Smasher in the whole game, and if you work him up to S rank or higher, he becomes far more viable than a lot of Blades. With an Overclocking Bangle, you can switch to him to Smash almost immediately. Zeke should be your Launcher since he extends the time enemies are in the air. Tora is your Breaker with Poppi QTπ and a Beta Scope, but can effectively do entire Driver Combos on his own in quick succession with an Overclocking Bangle, Beta Scope, and Fast Blade Switch V on each Poppi.

I haven't updated past the one that gives Challenge Mode, but it's all I have left to do. I haven't done NG+ yet, so I don't have the Torna Blades, and I don't have Crossette, Shulk, or Fiora, but I have every other Blade at S+ barring Poppibuster who's stuck at A until I do NG+ and get five more Heart-to-Hearts.

I have a question, would appreciate if someone could answer

I finished XC2 just when it was released. Apparently ng+ and challenge mode dropped since then, and soon Torna expansion. I have only finished the storyline, never touched post game content. I'd like to return to the game now, play ng+, do the challenge mode or whatever it's called, do post game content, and do the Torna expansion.

In what order exactly I should be doing it? Should I farm postgame stuff/challenge mode first, then jump into ng+? Or do the postgame stuff/challenge mode in ng+? What would be the best option for me? Would I benefit in ng+ from doing all that first? I haven't gathered many rare blades either. Just a few.

Basically there's so much content that I am lost. Should I be doing it now or in ng+?
>>
>>224543652
Flat is justice delete this
>>
>>224544757
NG+ > 100%, Land of Challenge, Post-Game
So you can re-familiarize yourself with the combat (maybe even on Bringer of Chaos) and add the NG+ Rare Blades into the gacha pool since you're missing so many.
NG+ and Custom Difficulty alleviate the grind a lot, so the sooner your access, the better.
>>
>>224545689
Thank you a lot. So basically just fuck it (my last save is literally before the last boss). Go into ng+, and enjoy all of the game there, right? Don't grind for any special accessories/blades/quests/challenge mode/bosses?
>>
>>224545817
You may want to finish Ursula's quest if you've made any decent progress into it, because you have to do it again if you don't finish it and unlock her final key affinity nodes. Otherwise, you're good.
>>
Just left a lifetime of PC and bought a switch for Octopath Traveler.

Im done with that game. Should I get Xenoblade Chronicles 2? Is it a decent JRPG? Does it have nice fanservice? Is the grind bearable?
>>
>>224545817
The best accessories and Aux Cores come from Land of Challenge, which is very endgame.
Quest progress resets, so you'd have to 100% it again.
Grinding to be able to grind the other Blades/defeat Challenge Mode/Bosses can be added on to the accessories/Aux Cores you'd be farming.
And since NG+ lets you exchange Bonus EXP for stuff or delevel for SP/WP gains, the grind can wait.

Ursula's Blade Quest is really the only thing you need to complete, if you've made any significant progress in it.
>>
>>224546018
>>224545925
Thank you. I will hop into ng+ then. I've made some progress on the Ursula, might finish this one, then. She's one of the 4-5 rare blades I actually have.

One more question if I may, sorry for bothering - how does Torna expansion weave into that? Is it part of the core game, as in you travel there from XC2 areas, or is it totally standalone?
>>
>>224546212
Standalone, set 500 years ago during the Aegis War you've heard about, but never really experienced for yourself. Really to flesh out the world/lore and characters while also providing new gameplay mechanics.
>>
>>224546362
Thanks, guess I will pick it up on the e-shop. Time to grind Ursula then enjoy ng+

You're great anons
>>
>>224545994
>Should I get Xenoblade Chronicles 2? Is it a decent JRPG?
Depends. What are you looking for in a JRPG? Obviously this thread is going to be pretty biased in XB2's favor. I think it's a great game, but it starts slow and is kind of shit at explaining its mechanics.
You can try emulating Xenoblade 1 if you want to kind of get an idea of what the gameplay is like. 2's combat is fairly different in a lot of ways, it'll at least give you an idea of what it's like before you make any purchases.
>Does it have nice fanservice?
Yep.
>Is the grind bearable?
If you're just playing through the main story, there's basically no grind at all (assuming you don't do something stupid like releasing all your common blades and ending up with no field skills when you need them lategame).
If you're aiming to get all the rare blades, it can be a fucking nightmare once you get to the last 2 - 3.

Took a break from Xeno 2 for like 5 months already.

Im basically looking for interesting story, doesn't have to be stellar, im perfectly fine with trope-y characters, in fact, I like when JRPGs have lots of trope-y chars.

Im looking for something around 60 hours. (Between story and completing most of the sidequests, not 100% necessarily) .

What I want is theorycraft builds and itemizations and put everything into a hastily done exel spreadsheet and plow my way through the game without much grinding. Notable examples, Golden Sun, where I basically didn't have to grind much (except when finding all the Djins) , and bad example , literally any Dragon Quest

Wonder why Wind gets to be the element that gets stacked twice. I'm aware one had to be and they couldn't let Addam be light too because he has Mythra, but still curious why Wind.
>>
>>224549106
you can equip different weapons to change the drivers' elements. addam's default is actually lightning.
>>
>>224549106
You can change the element of each Driver with weapon accessories, and in the E3 trailer and Treehouse footage, Lora began with Fire, Addam with Lightning. Unknown about Hugo.

>>224531778
Since Switch Arts heal a certain portion of lost HP, and Brighid, Aegaeon, Addam, Mythra, and Jin probably don't have healing Arts while Lora does and Haze would (unsure about Minoth and Hugo), wouldn't you want your HLR/Lora's party to have more HP than your ATK/Addam's party and dodge TNK/Hugo's party? Unless crit healing breaks this game too.

Hugo's default has to be Earth since Lora and Brigid's default element overlap.

Your nuts, based on the trailer, he's a king that wants to do more for his people and be on the front lines rather than just be forced to sit back and order other people into battle. Don't forget in the flashback he sends Brigid to Addam's camp alone, to check in on them since he's probably swamped in royal duties like Nils is.

Also if Hugo does go full asshole, it would give Addam zero reason To seal Mythra away as Pyra and then fuck off to Leftheria because there would still be chaos in the world.
>But Amalthus!
He was still pretending to be a good guy and wasn't pulling any power plays like when you first meet him in Chapter 5 where he's affable. Remember he only went full asshole to destroy the Torna after Addam went into seclusion.


It's probably more likely that Hugo dies at the end because both Brigid and Aegaeon are considered national treasures of Mor Ardain, so they'd be immediately be taken back to Alba Cavanich or whatever the capital was if Hugo did kick the bucket during the final battle. Thus ensuring a stable timeline without any balls from left field.

Well, we know there was a pretty big disagreement within post-war Torna between the people who wanted to continue living in harmony with Blades (who were led by Addam), and those who thought they should be used as tools. Things definitely weren't all sunshine and roses, but he still sealed Pyra away anyways.
I agree with you on Hugo, though. Nothing we've seen about him suggests he has bad intentions at all.

Sounds like you will have fun with the game. If you are still unsure, the first FAQ in OP answers most basic questions about the game for newcomers.
The second FAQ is more advanced and it is best to wait chapter 3-4 before checking it.

Speaking of which, as another anon stated, the game starts a bit slow, but once you reach chapter 4, you are for a wild ride.

I haven't bought the Expansion Pass yet, but I was wondering when the earliest possible point I could obtain Crossette's Core Crystal is.

You can can get her core crystal right after you get access to the blade menu. It's not quest or chapter fixed like Poppibuster.

The thing is than if Addam have to choose between The World or Pyra/Mythra he would choose the world.
He probably have to mae a hard choise to save the world and that choise probably was the reason of why Mythra hate herself so much.
That would explain why she and Pyra almost cry when Rex choose them over everything else.

The geopolitics is why I think at the end. Hugo dies. It's pretty obvious that if Mor Ardian and Torna work side by side, they're going to have a very solid friendship, even Malos decimated the Torna, Mor Ardian would be there to give them aid, or at the very least, when Indol came to wipe out the remaining Tornans and kill the Titan, Mor Ardian would rally to give them aid or take refugees. This means Hugo is either a giant asshole, or more likely, he's killed Mor Ardian's politics have to look inwards during the succession, so they can't help Torna when shit goes down.

As for if Mor Ardian sees them as tools or partners, the fact that Brigid is allowed to keep her dairy and as such standing in the empire makes me think the latter. Sure they mecha the fuck out of Titans, but from what we've heard they don't mind or care
