Phantasy Star Online 2 Description
Phantasy Star Online 2 lets players enter the world through different Ships (which are the servers). In the Phantasy Star Online 2 character creation, players can customize the specific appearance and facial details of their avatars.
Players can select from a variety of races in Phantasy Star Online 2, including the base Human, Newman (elven-like humanoids), CAST (cybernetic humanoids), and the Deuman (draconic humans with horns). Once a race is chosen, players in Phantasy Star Online 2 can select one of the 9 different classes, from the Braver, Fighter, Gunner, Bouncer, Force, Summoner, and Techter. They can later choose Scion Classes when at least 2 of the base classes reaching level 75.
In addition, players can acquire a subclass license. This allows a character in Phantasy Star Online 2 to have access to a separate class to boost the effectiveness of the main class being used. However, this subclass license cannot be used with the Scion classes.
The gameplay in Phantasy Star Online 2 is progressed through quest accomplishment. As Phantasy Star Online 2 uses an instanced based model, each quest is done by parties of up to 4 (although there are multi-party quests that can have up to 12 participants). Players can interact with one another outside of quests through the ARKS lobby, as well as open world instances. Open-World instances lets larger contingents of players to fulfill some Client Orders faster, as monsters and Emergency Codes respawn in these instances.
