I'm currently leveling my Braver which is in the 6x and wanted to ask something - is doing recommended quests and hoping for a Bonus Quest key the best way to spend time right now xp-wise? I noticed that the silver key bonus quest (have yet to get the golden key) gives me around ~50% xp for the next level, maybe a bit less.

Aside from that, I try to join parties for the level up quest and extreme quests, but this gives less experience than I remember from leveling my other classes, even with the +75% xp and +100% triboost.
I do my recommended quests daily to see if I get a key. It's a nice bonus for almost no effort! I stack a Tribooster, an EXP ticket, and a 7-11 Donut in the event that I get either a silver or gold that day, then I run some boosted AQs until the boosters die. I believe VHAQs are currently better off than SHAQs, since you can kill mobs much faster, which makes up the difference in EXP rewards. I only really run XQs nowadays for money, really.

Hm, I haven't even considered doing AQ... Since I have a ton of capsules I might try that, thanks!

Definitely try to find a party to run the AQ with. During the Arks Cup we ran a bunch of high risk Ruins VHAD on a Vita block. Leveled up extremely fast because forever crossburst
High Risk VH? Am I missing something here or is it just that AQ are much harder than regular quests on the same difficulty? Since nowadays I usually play in short bursts, I was planning on running VHAD alone. Would it work too?

Risk is like a combo counter; the more you run an Advance quest, the higher the risk, which increases enemy levels (and thus experience yield). The linked runs were at risk 50.

Full party is best. I'd try to pug it if you can, preferably off someone who is carrying risk already. You probably want to aim for either Ruins or City VH. Four players is always best since they build and maintain burst much faster, and bursts are more productive.

Recap of today's livestream.

I was able to watch most of it and while there wasn't really that much in terms of new information, the Yamato AIS battle looks really fun. It starts with players having to get to the ship, then it's kind of like Big Varda, but the last phase is pure AIS flying craziness.

I didn't notice it before, but SEGA posted some useful information regarding the PS4 version launch. (link)
The PS4 version requires 45GB of free space on the console and it will be available for download around noon JST on Wednesday, so around 5-6h before the maintenance ends.

Also they are, slowly, emailing out in-game item codes for those that participated in the PS4 closed beta. Each bonus you qualified for (login 1 day, login 2 days, login 3 days, get level 10, etc) is a separate code, so you might end up with a lot of emails if you did everything. Don't miss them!

I was very surprised when I got ~6 of those emails in a quick succession. Was expecting all codes to be in one, but I guess the way they do it is easier for them.

Will the new OT be for PSO2 in general, or JUST the PS4 version?
It will be a general OT, since splitting the conversation between 2 threads about different versions of the game which use the same servers wouldn't be a wise choice. Also mods don't like that (happened when the vita version got released).

Maintenance ended ~20 minutes ago, but there currently is a bug which prevents people from charging AC bought on the PSN in the PS4 version. They're looking into it, but for now people have to use old ways of getting psobucks.
