PSO2 NGS Gameplay

The gameplay of Phantasy Star Online 2 is largely action-oriented, and the player can choose from a huge and diversified array of weapon types and playstyles. Players confront foes in real-time combat with a variety of strikes, which can be chained for increased damage. Combos can be enhanced with powerful attacks called Photon Arts that require a resource called Photon Points in addition to basic strikes. Techniques, attacks that are akin to magic but use PP, are available to certain classes. When the player employs these attacks, PP is consumed; if the player does not have enough PP, they will be unable to attack with Photon Arts or Techniques; nevertheless, PP regenerates naturally or can be manually replenished by attacking foes with normal assaults.
