The new quest is up, and its a doozy! (Doozy wtd?)

Administrator Natasha orders your team to go clean out the East Control Tower of badguys so they can recover the research data from Pioneer 1 that is left in there. Seems simple enough, but if you find our good friend Hopkins in the town square, he informs you that his father, the dapper Paganini wants you to retrieve the Pioneer 1 computer data and deliver it to him before Natasha and the Lab are able to get ahold of it. Dun-dun-dun the PSO plot thickens!

This is probably the hardest quest I have played. Sure Seat of the Heart is harder to do beacause Elly dies all the time, but this one is actually challenging! You go through CCA, 9 Floors of CCT, and have a final face off with Epsilon on the lab at the top of the tower. There are tons of Mercarol (and the rare forms of him), Gibbles, Del Lily, Gi-Gue, and Recon/Recoboxes, and a few Il-Gill's and Delbiters to spice things up.

After you complete the quest and deliver the data to Paganini, you can enter the Gallon's shop quest, and use your PDs to modify your S-rank weapons! Paganini will add a special move to your S-rank for a PD fee. Alisha got Zalure added to her mechguns, and it seems to be super-powerful (Level 50?) zalure, just like we remember from the S-ranks off of PSOv2. Now our s-ranks can be even cooler beigebiggrin.gif

Also, from the way Administrator Natasha was talking, we will probably have to visit the west tower some time in the future to clean it out too.... Paganini is talking about some great project he's working on, and he'll show it to us later... Is that the ES weapons, or somethins else?

Sounds like a really tough quest. Dammit... another thing on which to spend PDs... Hmmmm... build bkb or upgrade champion sword... Decisions decisions...

Sounds exciting! ^.^ Unfortunately, I really need to get an S-Rank weapon first. I've got a few characters progressed on various late CMode stages, so hopefully I can pump out one or two S-Ranks sometime soon. By the way, is the skill that Paganini adds completely random or can you select from a list? Anyhow, I'll definately be on tonight to try out the quest. Thanks for the info, Crush. ;-)

Just did this quest like 4 times already. It's a very cool quest. The 9th floor was hell for me and the teams I went with. I didn't see Pag after finishing the quest. Just saw Hopkins saying his dad was in the middle of a major project. I wonder what happens if you bring him a photon sphere... But thanks to this development, As said before, I'm in a bit of a dilemma as to which I should spend my pd's on... I guess it depends on how many it takes to upgrade the srank.

You can choose from a list which options to add to your weap. The more PDs you offer (I think the increments are 30, 40, and 50) the better options you get to choose. We still don't know if you can add more than one power to a weap yet, though. Imagine if you could have a weap with Zalure, Jellen, HP Revival, TP Revival, and oh lets say BERSERK! All at once!

If such were the case, I'd imagine they would be selected at random when you hit the "special" button.

That sounds pretty cool, if think about it you could get Srank shot and put jellen/zalure on two sperate shots. Then you'd be a bootleg FOcast.

From our testing last night on Ult seabed, the Zalure attack from Alisha's mechguns hit all the time. I don't know if its the same accuracy for all the element, but it seems pretty damn good.

Needless to say:
PSO just got better.

And dam, add abilities to s-ranks...?
dang it i had 6 weapons.
Corruption couldn't happen at a better time. =(

Anyway, back on topic:
I have to say that this is the best f-in' quest I've ever played. Of course if it weren't for a certain someone, I wouldn't had a chance hehe.

One warning: Do not play this quest on Ultimate with whiny noobs. It will be more frustrating and difficult than it already is. ESPECIALLY if you're a Force.

haha yeah, that's why I waited so long to do it. Didn't want to play with strangers, there's always the chance they suck beigeroll.gif but i finally did it with Retehi and Scan last night...the quest is SO tight.

I completely agree. shades.gif

This new quest is not only a blast to play, but it also alleviates my initial dissapointment over Seat of the Heart being a single player quest, and the GC version s-ranks being considerably lamer than their DC counterparts.
