- Rare super pure crystal Photon.
There is someone who needs this...
Photon Sphere, commonly abbreviated as PS, is a unique item that can be used to add and boost attribute percentages on weapons. It is also used as a high-value currency between players, since a single Photon Sphere costs 99 Photon Drops in Gallon's Shop; in addition, high-value items commonly cost hundreds of PDs, and only 99 of them can be traded in the Trade Window at a time. However, As a trading item it is inferior to the Photon Hoard, which can be converted back to Photon Drops, unlike the Photon Sphere.
Uses[edit | edit source]
In Gallon's Shop, talking to Hopkins with at least one Photon Drop on hand and selecting "Yes" will prompt him to bring the player to his father, Paganini. If the player has brought Paganini the data from the terminal in Seabed during the West Tower quest, the "Enhance weapon's Photon" option will be available. "Enhance weapon's Photon" is the only action that can be done with only Photon Spheres on hand; the others require Photon Drops. This allows the player to add 30% to an attribute percentage on their weapons in exchange for a Photon Sphere, but only if the attribute in question is at or below 70%; smaller amounts can be added using Photon Drops. There are some restrictions to adding attributes:
- a weapon cannot have more than three attributes (Excalibur, Lame d'Argent, Sealed J-Sword, and Tsumikiri J-Sword cannot have more than two, and ES Weapons can't have any at all),
- Hit % cannot be added to a weapon,
- an attribute cannot exceed 100%.
Using a Photon Sphere to boost an attribute by 30% saves 21 Photon Drops in value, as doing so with PDs alone would cost 120.
