Bouncer is a returning class in Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis that is proficient in close and medium range combat. Highly mobile and skilled at aerial combat, it specializes in increased Physical and Elemental Down capabilities.

Class Weapon Overview

Dual Blades

Dual Blades are melee weapons that allow you to perform various attacks that cover close to mid range with twin blades and Photon Blades. Pressing the same Dual Blades Photon Art mid Photon Art will result in a different and stronger finisher at no additional PP cost. Photon Blades can be fired via the Weapon Action button, and with the relevant Class Skill learnt, increase the PP recovery amount when you land Normal Attacks on enemies stuck with them.

Jet Boots

Jet Boots are Technique weapons that specialize in floating combat. Holding down on Jet Boots Photon Arts will result in a different and stronger finisher for additional PP cost. Techniques, when used, imbue Jet Boots Photon Arts with an additional corresponding elemental hit per Photon Art hit with the relevant Class Skill learnt, that contributes to Elemental Down, Barta Blot and Zonde Clad. Unlike PSO2 however, Jet Boots Normal Attacks are not imbued with additional elemental hits. Jet Boots are also unique in that they have a charged Normal Attack that gets faster with a strong finish the longer it is held down with an enemy within contact with the relevant Class Skill learnt, as well as a two step counter when they sway with their Weapon Action button to avoid an attack and counter with a Normal Attack with the relevant Class Skill learnt.

Although Jet Boots are able to cast Techniques like any other Technique weapon such as Rods, Wands and Talises, they have their peculiarities.

  • As one of the innate perks, Jet Boots users do not lose height when using Techniques.
  • However, when casting uncharged Techs, Jet Boots users cannot move and remain in place.
  • Moreover, when charging Techs, Jet Boots users can move, but cannot remain stationary. Charging with no direction held will inch the user forward at one step distance every two seconds.
  • In addition, when charging Techs while locked on, the only directions Jet Boots users are able to move are to actively resist moving forward by holding backwards, or rapidly forwards, but cannot remain stationary. Charging with no direction held will inch the user forward at one step distance every two seconds. This presents a unique challenge for casting charged Techs with Jet Boots when locked on to a part when not using it as a move for when the boss is Downed.

Class Skills

Name SP Levels Description
Defeat
PP Gain
1 Recover 50% of your maximum PP each time a nearby enemy is Downed. Main Class only.
*The actual amount appears to be 55% of your maximum PP.
Defeat
Amplify
10 Makes it 10-20% easier to induce Down on enemies. This effect is reduced to 1-10% on a Sub Class.
Partial Destroy
Advantage
5 Increases damage dealt to by 1%-2% and reduces damage taken from an enemy by 2%-4% based on the number of parts destroyed on it, for up to 3 destroyed parts on the enemy. This effect is halved on a Sub Class.
Physical
Decline
1 Makes it 5%/10%/15% easier to induce a Physical Down for everyone by applying a debuff on the enemy when hitting the enemy with your Photon Arts. This effect can be stacked up to three stages and is displayed via a logo next to the enemy's name. Although the first stack can be applied with a single Photon Art hit, it becomes progressively harder to stack the stage of this debuff with stage levels. No matter the stage, the debuff lasts for 20 seconds before the debuff dissipates, and the countdown can be refreshed back to 20 seconds with a Photon Art application. The logo will starts blinking when it has 5 seconds left. Main Class/Dual Blades only.
Elemental
Decline
1 Makes it 5%/10%/15% easier to induce an Elemental Down for everyone by applying a debuff on the enemy when hitting the enemy with your Photon Arts. This effect can be stacked up to three stages and is displayed via a logo next to the enemy's name. Although the first stack can be applied with a single Photon Art hit, it becomes progressively harder to stack the stage of this debuff with stage levels. No matter the stage, the debuff lasts for 20 seconds before the debuff dissipates, and the countdown can be refreshed back to 20 seconds with a Photon Art application. The logo will starts blinking when it has 5 seconds left. Main Class/Jet Boots only.
Decline
Amplify
3 Increases the Down accumulation of Physical Decline and Elemental Decline by 40%/70%/100%. Main Class only.
Barta Blot 1 Hitting enemies with uncharged Ice Techniques enough times engraves an Ice Crest on them. Hitting an enemy with an Ice Crest with a charged Ice Technique detonates the Ice Crest.
Zonde Clad 1 Hitting enemies with uncharged Lightning Techniques enough times puts you into an energized state. Your next charged Lightning Technique will deal more damage and remove the energized state.
Fanatic Blade 1 When activated, doubles the firing rate of Photon Blades Weapon Action to one volley every 0.5s instead of every 1s and damage of them to 120% for 15 seconds. 60 seconds cooldown and 30 seconds for initial availability. Active Skill/Dual Blades only.
Fanatic Blade
Augment
2 Increases the number of Photon Blades fired per volley while Fanatic Blade is active to 4/6. Dual Blades only.

Jet Intensity 1 When an enemy is within striking range, holding down the Normal Attack button will continue the charged Normal Attack into a series of continuous strikes that gradually increases in speed on each successive hit, that finishes with a powerful downward kick after 10 seconds. There is no attack PP recovery during this attack, but natural PP recovery will occur. Jet Boots only.
Prerequisite: Jet Attack Extra Lv.1
Boots Trick
Bounce Counter
1 Automatically counterattack when you successfully evade an attack with your Weapon Action. Using your Normal Attack after this counter will generate an additional counterattack. Jet Boots only.

Element Set
1 When Photon Arts are used, an additional elemental explosion based on the last Technique used will occur. The explosion contributes to Elemental Down, Barta Blot and Zonde Clad, but will not detonate them. The Technique can be casted once at any time and will prevail throughout battle and switching weapons and does not ever need to be recasted, apart from when switching maps. 1 second cooldown between elemental explosions. Jet Boots only.
Sturm Gigue 1 Built up gauge from the last 5 seconds of held Normal Attack Jet Intensity with the Class Skill learnt (10%x6+40%) or evading using Weapon Action (10% each). Step dodges do not add to the gauge. When activated, consumes the build to perform a rapid move. 20 seconds cooldown and 30 seconds for initial availability. Active Skill/Jet Boots only.
