PSO2 Appraisal Shop
First, before we dive into anything let’s explain what appraisal in PSO2 even is a little bit. Most loot you get in Phantasy Star Online 2 is identified and you can just equip it right away assuming you meet the stat requirements to wield it such as Melee.
Some gear though will be marked as “Special ?” which means it is unidentified and needs to have its value appraised.
The appraisal shop vendor in PSO2 can be found in the Shopping Area which can be reached via the elevator in the Gate Area of Arks. You’re looking for Chiara who is in the orange weapons booth next to the weapons merchant.
You have two options, Appraise Item and Enhanced Appraisal when it comes to gear. The vast majority of the time, the regular Appraise Items option is the best choice to make. The Enhanced version is much more expensive and should be reserved for the highest tier of rarity in order to maximize the benefits.
When you go to confirm the item appraisal in PSO2, you will be able to confirm what element you want to and what augment you want to add from the ones you have available to you. Over time you will get more powerful augments.
You will need to pay a small amount of Meseta, but when you’re done you’ll likely have a powerful weapon at your disposal. There’s a lot of weapons for the many classes in PSO2 though that you might need so consider feeding it to your Mag, or selling it if it’s not helpful to you.
That’s all you need to know about the basics PSO2’s appraisal shop and how to utilize it. For more tips, tricks and FAQs answered be sure to search Twinfinite for Phantasy Star Online 2.
