GUARDIANS Boost Road

From The PSUPedia

Jump to: navigation, search

GUARDIANS Boost Roads are special recurring events which have players run a specified series of missions to earn points which go toward an individual ranking. This ranking is used to determine a drop bonus which is applied to the missions in the route. The key to increasing your rank lies in completing all of the specified missions in an even fashion, as your rank is based on the mission which you have completed the least. The bonus applied to each GBR mission is a cumulative total of each party member's current GBR status. With a maximum individual bonus of 50%, a full party of six potentially could benefit from a 300% bonus. You can check your current GBR status by speaking to the TTB receptionist on Clyez City's fourth floor.

As an added bonus, any ver.1 missions (those written in white text at the mission counter) which were featured in a GUARDIANS Boost Road would receive a 2x MP boost for the duration of the GBR. This no longer applies, however, as most ver.1 missions have been converted to AOTI standards, or will be upon being featured in a GBR.

Point system

Points are awarded to individuals based on the missions they complete. Each difficulty has a specific number of points which will be awarded as long as the mission is completed with a grade of B or better. If the mission ends with a C, no points will be awarded.

Mission difficulty Points
C 1
B 2
A 3
S 4
S2 5
S3 6

As points are earned, a player's GBR class will go up. Each class has certain rewards linked to it which is said to change with each GBR. However, the only change made in those GBRs held so far is a drop boost. The tables next to the sets of GBR missions shown below list each class as well as how many points are needed to progress and what rewards are tied to each point level. These values vary upon the holding of each new GBR.
