Now played through the game too. Still have some of the Blade Quests left to do though.
I think the weakest part of the game is the beginning. Especially when you travel to Gormott alone and everything kills you, because you don't have a group.
Also some areas were difficult to find in the beginning. Later it gets easier, since you get used to the layout of the Titans.
Still a great RPG. Nice characters, great japanese voice-acting and beautiful environments.
Loved the interactions between Nia and the other characters.
Also the german subtitles are hilarious sometimes. Really well written (for the most part).

I've been really enjoying Xenoblade 2, but I've hit a few walls that I need to grind to get past. I have spent about 5 hours stuck on Aeshma's Core now and I'm at the point of giving up.

@Ciaran3012 you have to destroy the cables, those have attack spikes tho. Basically means they reflect a large portion of your damage when the cables are below 50% health. Just get them to around half HP (or until you start seeing purple numbers pop up) and focus on the robot to build up your party gauge to hit the cables with a chain attack. Rinse and repeat, if they don't go down right away

What a beautiful signature.

@Grumblevolcano You think so? It took me around 900 crystals, about 300 of which were rare to get all the blades, and the boosters only seems to have a minimal effect, so small that I can't tell if it was just a co-incidence or not.

@RR529 You like Dahlia but don't like Finch?! Wow your tastes are like the polar opposite of mine. lol, Dahlia is by far my least favorite design in the game.

I have been wondering this myself...when I used the boosts I got normal blades, but when I didn't use boosts I ended up getting Kos-mos and a few others...so I am wondering if they matter at all???

Looks good, I'll postpone my Rare Blade grind for these quests.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

I run a YouTube/Twitch channel for fun. Check me out if you want to!

Oh good news indeed! I will be looking forward to this! I was wondering when we'd hear more about the expansion pass!

@scubydo I don't think they make it less likely to get the rare blades, but I think I have enough experience to say they provide little discernible benefit. I mean, around 900 Crystals and using the boosters vs not using them I saw no significant difference that couldn't be attributed to the usual RNG.

@scubydo @Heavyarms55 boosters don't raise the odds for rare blades actually, they raise the odds for specific elements afaik. I think your highest idea/thought cloud (what an idiotic name for that, BTW) stat determines which element you're most likely to roll.
So, if you want Zenobia, like me, you wanna use the boosters for wind and ice on a character with a high level in the corresponding stat.

The actual luck stat and quality of the core crystal is still more important for getting rarer blades (actual rare blades and lvl 4 common blades)
It's pretty easy to raise that one stupid high towards the end of the game, too. One of my characters sits at around 600-700 at lvl 85 right now, and I actually do get many more of the better common blades with the odd rare blade in between (4 to go, two of which are among my favorites, ugh. I'd rather just trade KOS-MOS for Zenobia and Electra)

What a beautiful signature.

@Tsurii That's what I was talking about. If they actually do have an effect, it is small because I still more often got the wrong element than what the numbers said I should have been getting.

@Tsurii zenobia would be awesome if you got her in the beginning of the game... I got her 120 hours in so I didnt even bother.. but if new game + lets you keep blades im going to use her first.

I just pulled off my first full burst chain attack using blades with maxed out affinity charts and some of the best core chips and my party at level 70... Let's just say I understand why the Aegis did so much damage 500 years ago! Seriously, so worth it! I don't understand how people can be speeding through the game, they are skipping so much awesomeness!

@Inertiacreep The only way I would do new game plus is if we can keep our blades, or the make it much much easier to get them. I adore this game, but I am not grinding out all the blades again... at least not this year. lol

@Heavyarms55 Hey do you happen to know what some of the different boosts are for some of the rare blades? I can't really find anything definitive anywhere. Also, I am in chapter 3, just starting it. So does that matter also? I currently have Azami, Godfrey, Electra, Gorg, Perun, and Kos-mos, aside from Nia, Dromach, and Pyra of course.

@scubydo Kos-Mos in chapter 3, you lucky potato!

The boosters have a very small affect in pushing what element type blade you get. For example Justice boosters increase your chance of light and dark. Just look at the colors to see which boosters push what element. But they do not have any describable affect on your chances to pull a rare blade. The only thing that benefits that is using rare or legendary core crystals, but even then, it is not a big increase. The more rare blades you collect, the harder it is to get more.
