Personal Siege Engines

This page is a work in progress

Intro

Personal Siege Engines (PSE) can only be piloted during Battlefield and RvR.
You have to complete a quest to get the Prototype Personal Siege Engine.
You complete another quest to turn the Prototype into a specialized Personal Siege Engine.

Each specialized PSE has its strengths and weaknesses:

Muspell > Valkyrie > Thor > Muspell

Type Description Strong Against Weak Against
Prototype Starting siege engine Not available for usage Not available for usage
Valkyrie Fast speed, short-range Thor Muspell
Muspell Medium speed, medium-range Valkyrie Thor
Thor Slow speed, long-range Muspell Valkyrie

Use the [B] key to access the Siege Engine Info window.

It costs (your level x 50) in Neo Steam to pilot a PSE.
Wearing +NS equipment/titles seems to lower the NS requirement to mount.

Level Range Neo Steam Range
41 to 50 2050 to 2500
51 to 60 2550 to 3000
61 to 70 3050 to 3500
71 to 80 3550 to 4000
81 to 90 4050 to 4500

Tune-Ups

A Valkyrie, Muspell, or Thor can be tuned-up, or upgraded, by talking to Taseiro or Covan.
A PSE can have a total of 12 tune-ups.
There are three types of tune-ups available and each type of tune-up has ten levels.
Tune-ups are limited by character level.
Each tune-up costs gold.
The upper body will change appearance after the fifth tune-up.
The lower body changes appearance after the fourth tune-up.

Upgrading Attack helps against other PSEs.
Upgrading Defense helps against ground troops, but not against other PSEs.
Upgrading Speed helps a little bit with movement speed.
