Ambition of the Illuminus updates

In preparation for the upcoming release of Ambition of the Illuminus, numerous updates have been made to the game. These updates apply only to the PC/PS2 servers for this date, but will be applied to the Xbox 360 servers on November 20, when the expansion becomes available for purchase and download via Xbox Live.

System changes

  • Players are now able to speak with NPC lobby attendants to move from main lobbies to any field lobbies they have visited following this update.
  • Photon arts caps have been increased from LV30 to LV40, of course depending on restrictions set in place by a player's battle type. Visual indications of a photon art at LV31+ will only be seen by players who have the expansion.
  • The character level cap was increased to LV110, while Guardian type caps have been increased to LV15.
  • Protransers now have a new ability which allows them to see traps without goggles. The goggles must still be used, however, to uncover and disarm traps.
  • Party members are now able to chat during certain cutscenes, such as boss entrances and death scenes.
  • Players are now able to enter first-person mode while seated.
  • A small delay has been added between switching from normal to first-person view, thus resolving certain glitches.

Your room, synthesis and grinding

  • A new shop search system has been introduced, which allows players to perform much more detailed searches for items in player shops. This update also allows players to view the prices, stats and other information of items in the search results window without having to go to a player's shop. The shop must be visited, of course, if a player wishes to purchase the item.
  • Synthesis success rates have been increased along with the chances of receiving higher elemental attributes on lines shields and striking weapons.
  • Synthesis failure has been adjusted to allow more more unique and varied items to result from a failed synthesis.
  • In the event of a failed weapon grind, the weapon will no longer be destroyed. Instead, any previous successful grinds will be lost and the maximum number of grinds the weapon can handle will be decreased by one.

Battle system

  • The new exact attack and exact counterattack moves have been introduced. Though usable in Phantasy Star Universe, the full visual effects of these moves will be visible only to Ambition of the Illuminus players.
  • Normal striking attacks will now recover photon points to the weapon being used. Critical hits will recover more PP.
  • The elemental attribute damage equation has been adjusted, allowing for low percentage and non-elemental weapons to inflict more damage than before. Likewise, to balance things out with this change, the base damage and defense of players has been adjusted.
  • Positive stat bonuses now remain on players even while using SUV weapons and nanoblasts.
  • Weapon and line shield drops will now have random elements and percentages added to them.
  • Meseta drops will increase when there are more players in a party.
  • The default for item distribution has been changed to "set random." Furthermore, when the distribution is designated "set random" or "set in order," any Meseta picked up will be divided evenly between party members. "Give finder" will give the full amount to whoever picks it up.
  • Certain low-power photon arts have been tweaked to make them more powerful.
  • Large enemies have received a reduction in stamina, making it possible for even low-level status effects to work against them.
  • The Hanzo and all Kubara striking weapons have been upgraded to make them work better with photon arts.
  • A rebalance was performed on the following partner machines: GH143, GH423, GH433, GH443 and GH453.

Items and shops

  • NPC shops will now pay more for certain items when sold back. Many items, such as various traps, have also received a reduction in price.
  • Certain customization options at Lumilass have received a price reduction.
  • A new trap, Burn Trap EX, was introduced to NPC shops.
  • Many B-rank units have become available in NPC shops.

New missions

Following the release of Ambition of the Illuminus on November 20, the following new missions will be playable by those who have the expansion.

Mission name Ranks Start lobby Start counter End lobby
