From The PSUPediaMeseta is the standard unit of monetary currency used in Phantasy Star Universe.
Meseta can be obtained currently in one of four ways.
- Finding it in Missions - sometimes enemies may drop Meseta, represented by a yellow box.
- Selling Items, both at normal Shops and Player Shops
- Completing Missions, Meseta is then rewarded at the end.
Uses of Meseta
Meseta is money used to buy items from shops. It is already more useful than in Phantasy Star Online, and while other trading currencies (for instance, an equivalent to the Photon Drops in PSO) might appear in the future, meseta is a certainly useful as trading currency. It is, however, a much less frequent drop than in PSO.
Limits on Meseta
The carrying limits on Meseta, whether on your person, in your Partner Machinery's storage, or in the drop box, are 99,999,999 meseta in each.
Item Meseta values
Items that can be bought and sold to NPCs for Meseta, have Meseta values associated with them. These values seem to depend on both the item type and the star rarity value. Items can be sold to NPCs for 5~50% of their actual value, depending on their item type. For instance, a two star weapon purchased from an NPC store for 800 meseta can be sold back to the store for 120, and a 2000 meseta weapon yields 300 from the NPC buyers. The rate at which they can be resold is called the selling rate. This does not apply to starting equipment, which can only be sold for 4-5 Meseta a piece. As for prices in player shops, in most cases it would be wise for the sellers to price items higher than they can sell to the NPCs for, yet lower than the rate players can buy from NPC stores at. The two sided positive benefit should encourage use of the store system by both buyers and sellers. The relatively small amounts offered by NPC stores likely encourages use of the store system, as well.
