What is Phantasy Star Online 2 Skill Simulator?


As its name says, PSO2 Skill Simulator is a very useful tool created by Gardios that allows you to simulate, forgive the redundancy, the Base Parameter of any character depending on the class and all the information you can give about your hero and check the skill tree and how the skills influence parameters (all the skill trees are different, but probably you already know this). When we talk about info we mean the type of class your hero is, that is to say, a Hunter (Hu), a Fighter, a Gunner (Gu), a Summoner, a Ranger, a Braver, a Phantom, a Force (Fo), etc., skill levels, the CO SP and the Class Boost. According to the previous data, your parameter information will change, increase or drop. 


PSO2 Skill Simulator Class Information

Configure the settings to modify your base stats. 


Something essential about this tool is that you can configure the actions of this tool according to the version of the game, if it is the English version (PSO2 JP), the Japanese (PSO2 PJ / NA), or English (PSO2NA).

In addition to the above, you can select any race you want among all the existing ones, that is to say, Human, Newman, CAST and Dewman, and even the gender of your hero. 

As we mentioned before, all these aspects modify the Base Parameter. Since there, when you are playing the game, the stats of your character can increase or drop depending on the configuration. This system is more than a simple tool. 

So, in this instrument you will find the following features:

  • Class Information
  • Lvl, CO SP of your character
  • Language Information
  • Base Parameter by Race
  • Mag Support Level.


PSO2 Skill tree Simulator - Skill descriptions

The menu of this tool is about the ability to study and simulate the Skill Tree and stuff of any race and character. The base stats are predefined but when you modify the skill level of the abilities that you are unlocking, your statics change. This page allows you to test how the skill level system works and what happens with your base parameter if you develop or raise your skill points for a specific ability. 

For example, in the case of Hu Class, you can find the passive abilities ‘Step Jump’ or ‘First Arts JA Addition’, which do not influence directly over your statics. But others passive abilities, such as ‘Striking Up 1’ or ‘Striking Defense Up 1’ influence a specific aspect of your stats.  

The level of the ability is essential to strengthen each stats of your base parameter. ‘Striking UP 1’ increases your S-ATK. In level 1, this ability increases your S-ATK in +3, but in level 10 increases the S-ATK In +50. You can check how the base parameter changes in real-time. 

Parameters change when you modify the skills you learn.  


In addition to the above, thanks to this build exercise, you can check what requirements you need to unlock certain abilities. In the same previous example, the natural thread of the ability ‘Striking UP 1’ is ‘Striking UP 2’ and then ‘Striking UP 3’. This Skill Simulator allows you to find out what level of certain skill you need to unlock the next skill. One skill builds the path to another skill. 


You need to reach a specific skill level to learn a new skill. 


Of course, all passive skills work differently and have different results, some of them reduce the damage or increase the maximum HP or the DEX, but these don’t have a common thread. 

Furthermore, at the bottom of the Skill Tree, you will find the Active Abilities, such as the Stances and the Guards. These abilities are more connected than the abilities at the top, that is to say, the decisions you make in this regard will define your later skills and your game from that point forward.

Base Skill Tree.


Talking about Hunter’s Active Skills, two of the bases are ‘JA Bonus 1’ and ‘Guard Stance’. To develop any of the more advanced skills, you need to achieve level 3 in the base skills. For example, to unlock ‘Flash Guard 1’ you need to reach level 3 in ‘Guard Stance’, but if you want to unlock any of the last skill related to the previous one, that is to say, ‘Flash Guard 2’, ‘Flash Tech Guard’ or ‘Massive Hunter’ you necessarily have to reach level 5 in ‘Flash Guard 1’. Of course, all the skills have differences in terms of the level they need, but the general system of the game works in the same way in broad strokes. You have to keep in mind that the stats change according to the weapons you use, the range of them, etc,
