Monolith Soft’s Xenoblade Chronicles 2 continues to receive updates and patches for fixing bugs and adding new features. The next update, v.1.4.0, has been available as of April 27th and brought two new Rare Blades – Poppi Buster and T-elos. Patch notes have been released for the update, which can be seen below.
Among the new features added include the ability to sort Blades based on “Driver”, “Trust” and “Field Skill” categories. Accessories can also be sorted based on “Type”. Once you’ve cleared the main story, a star will appear next to your money. From that point on, T-elos can be created by random crystal bonding. Don’t get frustrated if RNG isn’t on your side. Furthermore, there are traveling bards in New Game Plus who will exchange any bonus EXP for rare Poppi parts.
