Tips for Farming Weapons

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis 4 Star Weapons

The most important first step in farming a 4 Star Weapon in New Genesis is reaching Level 15. This will cause more difficult enemies to have a chance to drop your 4 Star Weapon, as well as having it drop from loot sources. We have not tested yet, but it seems more likely that you will get a weapon for your class than any other class while you are exploring the world. So, make sure you are equipped with a Level 15 version of the class you want to farm up!

Knowing the dungeon that the second weapon is from will be critical. The second 4 Star Weapon is a very slight improvement over the first, but you’ll be more likely to get it if you grind the dungeons. The dungeons include:

  • Mt Magnus: Swords, Knuckles, Twin Machine Guns, Wands
  • Vanford Laboratory Ruins: Partizans, Double Sabers, Launchers, Talises
  • Resol Forest: Wired Lances, Twin Daggers, Assault Rifles, Rods\

As long as you go through the dungeon on Rank 2, you are fairly likely to find the weapon drop from harder enemies. And if not, then you can try again! Unfortunately, there are no ways to consistently craft or purchase the weapons right now; that may come in future updates, alongside the three new classes, new weapons, and better gear.
