Just a small tidbit from the update site, but it seems that Ultimate Naberius will be getting a boost event starting on the 8th of November and lasting until the 6th of December.
Enemy power will be greatly boosted, but new drops will be added to the quest as incentive. So far, this is all they said about it. We have no idea how much enemies will be boosted or what drops will be added.
Essentially, it sounds like it’ll be the same treatment that Amduscia got so presumably 14* weapons will be added to the pool as well as some other stuff. If I were to hazard a guess, it’ll probably be Akatsuki, Jupiter Tullus and Quelle Windea (the Yamato 14-star weapons as we got the EscaFalz Mother 14-stars for Amduscia). If I’m right of course, this leaves Lilipa to gain Deus Esca’s 14-star weapons at some later date.
Unfortunately, they probably won’t be restoring the old AI and spawn rules so we won’t be able to re-live the days when Ultimate Naberius was new. For those who joined after that, back then you could have up to 4 mini-bosses and a boss at once at one point. It was a mad cluster-fuck of a quest but I sort of miss it.
I am sort of curious as to how it’s gonna work out, because unlike Amduscia this quest isn’t gated by a teleporter and you can even bring Partner Characters. I suspect they’ll at least disable Partner Characters for the duration of the event but otherwise you ought to be able to just hot-join and get straight into the action. For me that’s a good thing, I don’t really care how many people are about as I prefer to play uninterrupted, but for those who like to wait for a full party this might be an issue.
There is also the worry that they might make it so only Anga can drop the 14-stars, resulting in the revival of Anga farming but there’s no way they’d make that mistake again, right? Right?
