    Well.. the title should explain it if you've played ps0.

    I couldn't figure out what those other crystals are for... I mean those that you find all the time... right now I am like.. level 13 and have 25 of these... what are they for?
    I don't mean those that say something plus lvl. (

    well i don't get you, so try to be precise and clearer! i know is japanese.. but at least a clearer explaination, so i can help [​IMG]

    what is the colour of the crystal? yellow?

    it could be magic/technique... where the level of the item would not exceed level 15
    consumable items
    some can be upgrades like grinding tool or elemental upgrade (you required over the shop)
    rare items (normally obtain after you beat the boss or completion of quest) that can be upgraded to something else
    some items would transform your MAGS to something else
    money (meseta)
    photon drops that you can exchange for upgrades over the sewer
    last but not least it could also be upgrades for your stats

    blue would be armours
    red would be rare weapons

    It was the photon drops I meant. I didn't know about that manhole until recently, whereas I saw that photon drops acts like currency.

    As for the other crystals, I figured there would be at least one kind of crystals that would change the elemental affix or add some kind of special effect to the weapon.

    Also, something caught my interest... what do you mean by grinding tool?

    You say red itemcrystals are rare weapons, well I found one red itemcrystal in Oblivion City, thing is it wasn't no weapon, it was a crystal (yeah like an upgrade crystal). I think I spent it to upgrade my weapon.

    sorry .. my bad...
    red crystals are for items as well ( i let that slipped of my mind)..
    as you progress towards HARD or SUPERHARD you will encounter more red crystal drops

    by the way.. off topic.. there is this machine over the sewer.. if you key in certain password you can get limited edition weapons (although not powerful but is limited edition)

    Yeah, I figured it had to be for something like that... (I am speaking of that machine).

    Now, grind tools? Do I these later in the game or have I possibly spent these on something?
    Also, can I get the katakana for Grinding tools? Romaji is fine too.

    Thanks for all the help so far! You've been very helpful!

    EDIT: By the way... the guy in the sewer, is he like the grind tool guy?

    EDIT again: I have a di grinder and a mono grinder. What do I do with these?
    Di grinder, mono grinder, tri grinder... I can't figure out what these are for..

    Well, the guy to the right of the weaponshop... the wierd looking guy.
    He gives me two options.
    Either Elemental something
    or Photon something.
    Any of those options give me an error message...
    Although I can use my grinders directly from my inventory... adds +1 to whatever item I pick.

    you must have a element item to be able to add it to a weapon or change it on a weapon. if your weapon is fully grinded, you can choose the second option at that guys shop to add 5-15% of damage to a certain species.

    Ah, that's what I figured... So what I really need is elemental grinders and not mono/di/tri grinders... I only use these from the item menu... right?

    example; you have the fire element item and the weapon you want to change its status effect has the chaos effect. go to the guy and choose first option and pick your weapon and pick the fire element. it will now turn your weapon from LV.x chaos to LV.x fire. the x is what level its currently at. you cannot raise it. if you want a higher level status effect you must find a weapon with a higher level.

    Oh okay, so I can use the photonthingy option to increase the weapon's damage.. but It has to be fully grinded... Do I need any material to do this? And how do I know when a weapon is fully grinded? +99?

    Also, could you explain what mono/di/tri grinders does, or at least the difference between the three?

    the max a weapon can be grinded up to is 50 and it really depends on the weapon. some can grind to 5, 10, 20, 40, 50. maybe some in between. just use your grinders until you cant grind no more then go to the guy and add more % of damage to a species. i suggest you aim for 15%. dont go for the 5 or 10%. save and quit before doing it and if you dont get the 15%, quit but dont save.

    monogrinder = 1-3*
    digrinder = 1-5*
    trigrinders = 1-7*

    you can grind armor too.

    Yep, I got my weapon up to 50 and added another extra 15% damage against machines.

    I couldn't figure out what the first option was...

    but if I remember correctly then it should be something like this.

    1st Option: ??

    2nd Option: Beast

    3rd Option: Machine

    4th Option: Dark


    Let's just make things clear here...
    There are two stats shown on the first page of a weapon, those are attack and hitrating, right? As for armor, defense and guard/blockrate? or possibly evasion?

    And for other people that might want to learn one thing or another:
    Those items that looks like discs and go under the classification of armor can be equipped, depending on how many 'slots' your equipped armor has... The amount of slots is usually 0-3, but some armors tend to have even higher amounts of slots...
    Now one disk can be equipped per slot, so choose carefully which ones to equipp... I tend to get alot of +Mind and +Ice Resistance disks...
    I haven't played for too long, but there probably are rare disks that increase other stats such as attack or... I can't think of anything else...

    that 1st option is native. armor has defense and evasion. they can also have a max of 4 slots. no more than 4 and no item to add more slots like in pso.
