Nexomon: Extinction

It’s been about a week since Nexomon: Extinction was updated to version 1.04 on PS4, and now the game has been updated to version 1.05. This is actually a pretty beefy update, based on the patch notes.

There are a ton of quality-of-life improvements here, which is absolutely great. Maybe the most exciting new feature is the addition of Synergy Cores, which sound like the Nexomon version of EXP Share.

Shard farmers will be delighted by the addition of the Ultimate Pickaxe, which can yield 1-3 shards instead of just one. Add to that the Mining Goggles, which reduce the time it takes for new shards to spawn and shard farming has gotten less time-consuming. More shards, less time farming. That sounds like a win to me.

Tired of finding yourself out in the middle of nowhere with a worn-down team of Nexomon? Now there are rare crystals that spawn in remote locations that you can break to restore your stats. Lovely.

And now there is a Nexomon version of Shiny Charms, called Cosmic Charms. Increase your chances of catching Cosmic Nexomon with these bad boys! Plus, starters can now be cosmic as well.

And I’m actually pretty excited by the Storage Group sorting feature, and sorting Nexomon once you’ve created several groups can actually be a bit of a pain. I’ve not yet tried it since the update, but it is a relief to know the developers are thinking about us Nexomon sorters.
