I've been playing the game a little bit. Not too much, but I got force and a hunter to lvl 4. Really liking the force after I discovered hitting the enemy with a physical attack charges about 20 or so PP, making casting faster using cards. I can read katakana which has made a good amount of things pretty do-able but my Kanji is lame as fuck. I recognized buy, sell and forest but I doubt those would have been to hard to guess. Well, forest isn't obvious but the other two probably are.
I also just discovered quests and the skill tree. The skill tree took me by surprise; not only was it cool to see something like that in a PSO game, but it was also a wall of mostly unreadable text. I had to go online to find a skill tree translation but it was from January or something and was no longer entirely accurate but it kinda works.
I've also been playing with a friend who can't read anything so he has to share his screen with me over skype as I tell him what I can about what he is seeing.
As for the combat, it feels really good as a force and using a controller (I seriously suggest using one if you can). I like being able to blast a fool with magic balls of fire, teleport out of his attack, smack him with a science card and keep going.
How is it going for you duders? Got any tips/ questions/ concerns?
Pro Tip: Charge your spells. They do way more damage. I had a foie going from 20 to 110 with a full charge. Also Resta actually does something useful when charged.
