Techter (also known as Techer) is a returning class in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis.

Class Weapon Overview

Wand

Wands are general purpose Technique casting weapons that can also be used as an melee weapon. Wands can be imbued with an element by casting a charged technique, which allows them to create Technique "explosions" called Photonic Fury when striking enemies with melee attacks that inflict additional damage and strike all enemies near the blast.

Using the Parry Weapon Action, you can block attacks and negate their damage when Guarding right before the attack hits you with a Just Guard. A Just Guard also allows you to move when successfully performed.

Wand Mechanics

  • Wand Element Change: A Passive Skill only usable on Wands when "Wand Element Change" is unlocked on the Techter skill tree. By charging a Technique, the element of the equipped Wand will change to match the charged Technique's element. A coloured orb appears at the head of the Wand, showing what element the Wand is currently.
    With "Wand Element Revoke" unlocked on the Techter Skill Tree, the current element can be reset by holding the Weapon Action Button.
  • Wand Tech Explosions: Attacking enemies with Wand melee attacks causes Technique explosions that deal additional damage. These explosions match the element of the current Wand element.
  • Wand Parry Counter Plus: A Passive Skill only usable on Wands when "Wand Parry Counter Plus" is unlocked on the Techter skill tree. After parrying the attack with Wand Weapon Action, a powerful counterattack can be performed by pressing the normal attack button.
  • Step Counterattack: After successfully dodging through an attack with a Step, a unique counterattack can be performed by pressing the normal attack button right after the Step.
