 __________________
|1.0 - Introduction|

Initially, I started a .hack FAQ to keep common questions off the boards, in an
effort to keep down stress on those who feel the need to answer questions, but
get annoyed by questions asked over and over again *cough*.

So, I wrote up an initial FAQ, that had to do with everything .hack. Through
several versions, I fixed it to where I thought CJayC might be willing to post
it. That didn't happen.

I figured, maybe it should have only big common questions for the non-game
part of .hack. Maybe that would help to get this up.

So, I reformatted, removed a lot of questions, and beheld my FAQ.

Which there wasn't a lot of left.

So I went back to the drawing board, and decided to convert it to a .hack
FAQ/Walkthrough. Just one problem: I didn't have the game yet, as it wasn't out
in the US. What to do, what to do.

Then I heard demos were to be given out to those that preordered. Which I had
done, but no demo. So I called, and went to pick it up. The demo covers a large
part of the beginning of the game, with nothing disabled in that part save for
saving. So I thought it could be a good idea to write part of this Walkthrough
based on the demo. This way, people who have trouble on the first day, before I
would have had time to get one up otherwise, would be able to find at least
some help, without creating questions to clog up the boards.

And so, I started playing the demo, with my sister's laptop next to me, typing
up a guide as I went, and fixing as I realized things were wrong. And so, the
first day of my playing this game was largely for this FAQ. Also to satisfy my
fanboy-ism until the game comes out.

|2.0 - Revisions|
Version 2.0 - Walkthrough completed, more items and skills added.

Version 1.5 - Walkthrough worked on, items added, skills added.

Version 1.35 -
    Didn't think I'd update again before Friday. But I did. So, here. Worked on
the walkthrough, the Items, and the Skills. I need to put a little more study
into the Ryu Books before I put up my updated findings, as I have a suspicion
I need to prove or disprove.

Version 1.25 -
   Added The Big One to the FAQ section. Can't believe I'd overlooked it
before... well, it's up now.
   Added the Key Items section and the Puchi Raising section.
   Also added a couple of Time Items.
   And the Affection section.

Version 1.1 -
   Got quite a bit more in terms of Items and Skills. No full version, though,
means no more walkthrough. Not unless I could get my hands on a Trade Demo, but
that's not gonna happen.

Version 1.0 -
   Stupid stupid stupid. Forgot to fix placeholders I'd put in when I initially
typed it up. Also, was so close to the end of the demo, it was stupid to not
just go ahead and finish it up. (A dungeon. That's all it was.)
   So... finished demo. Fixed stupid errors. Added some more items and skills.

Version 0.95 -
   All is new. Not enough for me to say 1.0 yet. Need more Walkthrough
information for such, methinks.

|3.0 - FAQ|

  3.01 - The Big One
   "What's this game about?"
In short, your friend Yasuhiko invites you to join a game that he plays and is
pretty well-known in. This game is called "The World". You join, start playing,
and Yasuhiko (Orca in-game) decides to take it upon himself to teach your n00b
ass about it. So he's showin' you around, fun is being had, when Orca fights a
high-level monster that is for some reason in the area. Yasuhiko is put into a
coma when Orca is killed in-game. Kite believes the answer can be found in the
game, and so he goes searching...
 
  3.1 - Gameplay Questions

   3.101 - "What's the gameplay like?"
The gameplay is a sort of mix between Phantasy Star Online and Kingdom Hearts
with some Star Ocean 2 thrown in as well (or Secret of Mana if you really need
a rough old-school idea). The AI controls your other party members while you
control Kite. The game pauses when you bring up the menu, and you're presented
with the standard game menu, with options and whatnot.

It is indeed a Real-Time battle system, and not turn-based.

   3.102 - "How long is the game?"
It depends not only on how fast you are, but also how into sidequests you are.
Some have reportedly beaten it in about 15 hours, I've heard others taking as
long as 30.

   3.103 - "OMG, dude. Is this game online?"
-_- No, it is not online. The game is a simulation of an MMORPG. Meaning you
control the guy controlling Kite in The World. Your character is in an MMORPG,
but you are not. Sorta confusing at first, I guess. Seems that way, since so
many people don't get it anyway.

   3.104 - "What's data draining?"
Data draining is an ability Kite obtains near the beginning of the game. When
you fight monsters down to a certain HP, you will see a "Protect Break". When
this happens, you can data drain the enemy. When you do so, it turns them into
a lesser monster, that's easy to kill, but gives minimal experience. Doing this
you can obtain rare items and virus cores. On the other hand, various negative
effects can also occurs, such as cutting your HP in half, or giving you a
System Error and Game Over.. It's risky.

   3.105 - "Then what are virus cores?"
You use virus cores for Kite's special ability, Gate Hacking. You use them to
infect the code and allow you access to fields you are trying to access.

   3.106 - "And fields are...?"
Fields are where the dungeons live. There is also a spring in which you can
throw items. Monsieur or Grandpa will pop up, and ask what you lost. You'll
then get an item back. Maybe better, maybe not.

   3.107 - "How do I get to fields?"
In towns, there is something called a Chaos Gate. You go here to access fields.
You can either go to one you've heard about in BBS or email, go to other server,
or create other dungeons using 3 keywords.

   3.108 - "Do I need a Network Adapter for my PS2 to play?"
Well, you can get one for the game if you really want, but since the game's not
online, it's not really needed... at all... for anything. Really.

   3.109 - "What's the character system like?"
There are some required characters, but about as many optional. You can get
them by going to their dungeons if you choose. Later, they might email you and
ask to go with them to certain other dungeons. Of course, it's optional, but
you can often get rare items there.

Sometimes, you will have to take certain characters to story dungeons. When
this happens, the others just happen to not be online. Convenient, huh? There
are also some solo dungeons that Kite has to go alone.

   3.110 - "Can you choose a character class?"
No, the "real world" Kite wants to be a Twin Blade too much for you to change
that. Besides, why would you want to play anything else? Twin Blades 0wnz0r.^_-



  3.2 - .hack Game Questions

   3.201 - "When do the games come out?"
The first game, Infection, comes out in February 2003. The second is in May,
the third in August, and the fourth November. (3 months apart) Though, I
wouldn't put it past Bandai to make a special edition with all four, the OVA's,
and something special thrown in to suck away at our money some more.

   3.402 - "Who's this Kite guy? I thought Tsukasa was the main
character?"
Tsukasa is not the main character. Nor is he a party member (unless for some
reason he is in vol. 4). Nor are Mimiru, Bear, Subaru, Sora, Ginkan, or Krim.
They are just not here for the games.

However, some of the characters do make cameos in vol. 3, and possibly 4 (it's
not out even in Japan yet, so I don't know for sure).

   3.203 - "But... but why?"
Because they had their story already! >_< Stop wanting them in Infection. Just
watch .hack//SIGN if you want them, ok?

   3.204 - "Is this game cel-shaded? That would ruin the game. I don't wanna
buy it if it's cel-shaded."
Shut up.

   3.205 - "Should I get this game or <Star Ocean 3 / Xenosaga / Final Fantasy
X-2 / Other game>?"
That's your choice. If you let others dictate what kind of games you play, you
need to stop. Play games because you want to, not because others tell you to.

   3.206 - "What is the plot?"
Basically, your friend Orca invites you to play The World with him. When you
get in and are playing, he gets data drained. You soon after obtain this
ability, but discover Orca has fallen into a coma in real life. You set out to
find out the answers, feeling they can be found in the game.

   3.207 - "Are there plans for other .hack games than the 4 out
now/soon?"
... Apparently. According to Famitsu Weekly (translated by RPG Fan), "Bandai's
Shin Unozawa said his company has plans to develop a follow-up to its popular
Project .hack series of PlayStation 2 RPGs."

   3.208 - "Why do Tsukasa, Mimiru, and Bear go by different names in the
games?"
Because those aren't them as the main characters in the games. They are Elk,
Black Rose, and Orca respectively. It's an MMORPG, people can look basically
the same. Besides, can't you tell the differences? They're not exactly minor,
really. Well, a lot aren't, anyway.

   3.209 - "Is there voice acting in the game?"
Aye. You can select either English voices, or Japanese subtitled in English. Or,
if you want, Japanese without subtitles. Though if you wanted that, you could
just import the JP game...

   3.210 - "What's parody mode?"
Parody mode is unlocked after you beat the game. It allows you to play through
making the game more humorous, basically becoming satire. I'm sure it'll be
quite fun if it makes it stateside (there's a chance it was replaced with dual
language... or at least will be later on in the series... :-/)



  3.3 - .hack//Liminality (OVA) Questions

   3.301 - "So the games come with .hack//SIGN DVD's?"
No. The games come with OVA's, with the title of .hack//Liminality. They
feature the real-world happenings during the events of the games (OVA 1 during
vol. 1, OVA 2 during vol. 2, etc.)



  3.4 - .hack Questions

   3.401 - "When does .hack//SIGN air?"
.hack//SIGN is starting on Cartoon Network on February 1st at 3 PM Eastern and
Pacific. That's 2 PM Central and 1 PM Mountain. For people in Alaska or
Hawaii... figure that out yourself. I don't understand your time zones.

   3.402 - "What about the DVD's?"
   The DVD's are going to be coming out starting in March. There will be
special versions of each one, with something extra thrown in. However, only
15,000 each of the special versions will be released. (Note: Not extra on the
DVD, extra such as a soundtrack or a Puchiguso plushie. Or a lot of stuff.)

   3.403 - "Is there nudity in the show?"
   ... No. So if you're looking for it, look elsewhere. If your parents want to
shield you, then the show's safe. This has been asked several times, so I
thought it should be here.

   3.404 - "Is .hack//UdeDen coming out here?"
This is changing now. According to the video on the demo disc for the game,
there *are* plans to bring at least the manga of .hack//DUSK over here. And it
mentioned the anime as well, so maybe that too.



  3.5 - General Questions

   3.501 - "Who is Balmung?"
Not sure why, but I've seen this quite often lately. Balmung is a legendary
warrior in The World, in addition to being the bishounen of the series. He will
offer to join you in vol. 3, Erosion Pollution/Outbreak.

   3.502 - "Are there any tips you can give me?"
Yeah. When on the forum, don't listen to Crimson Phantom. He's most likely
wrong, and will soon be corrected, most commonly by either Rhyste or myself.
Or both.

   3.503 - "Where I can find more information?"
... I see how it is. My FAQ wasn't good enough for ya, eh? Fine then. Be that
way.

Probably one of the best sources for information is:
     http://dummies.net-slum.com/

Also, check on the boards. I don't mean post a message immediately. Search
around. If you're not a newbie, you should have that option on the board's
action bar. Use it. Love it. We'll love you if you don't post questions that
have been answered 1000 times already.


 _________________
|4.0 - Walkthrough|
When you first start your game, you're greeted with a short movie consisting of
a reading of sorts of an epitaph.

After this, you hear Kite talking for a minute "IRL" (In Real Life... aka, not
game-Kite), and you get to choose a Username and Character Name for The World.
For purposes of this guide, if you rename Kite, remember the name Kite. 'Cause
I'll call him that.

Now, you get to see Altimit OS for the first time. You can change the look if
you want by going into Accessory and selecting one of 3 looks (orange, red,
blue... that's all you have now).

Read your mail, read the news, then once you're ready (if you're not on the
demo, you may as well save), go to The World. Here, you can Login or go to the
BBS.

The first BBS posts are pretty much just explaining the system. Read through
'em, get to know them, since you'll be using this for the next 60 hours
(figuring 20 hours a game... maybe more... though you're probably not playing
them in order and in one sitting... feh. Whatever.) A few posts about the News
items you may have read (if you cared), but nothing major.

Now, once you've read the BBS, head to Login. You'll head to Mac Anu, the Delta
Server root town.

   _______
  |Mac Anu|

Once you login, you'll be greeted by Orca. He'll tell you to call him Orca, and
not Yasuhiko, his IRL name. Then he'll go through a short tutorial of inviting
someone to your party.

You'll notice emoticons. A lot. Especially :-)

Next, Orca will lead you through a tutorial about keywords.

   _______________________________
  |Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field|

More tutorials. Camera, Attacking, and Chat Commands.

Now, Orca's quite the high level (level 50, actually), so go around fighting
whatever you can, and let him do most of the work. He'll do upwards of a couple
thousand damage, and you get 60 EXP per Goblin that he kills for you (in one
hit, might I add). Not that you shouldn't fight too, just don't get yourself
killed.

Once you've cleared the field, head to the dungeon. Another tutorial, about
treasure chests, including 2 for you free just for starting out.

*cough* Yeah. So, keep on, and there will be a cutscene involving a mysterious
white girl being chased by what seems to be a high-level monster (Orca makes a
reference to "something like that in this level?" which leads me to believe it)
 If you've seen SIGN, you know who the girl is. I won't spoil it for those that
don't, however. :-p

Now. Dungeon time.

The entire dungeon is pretty much tutorial. Just get used to seeing it for a
little while.

Floor B1:
Head forward, and you'll see a two-way split. Head to the right, where the girl
went, and you'll find a dead end with a Speed Charm. Now where did she go?

Head out, and down the other side of the split. Orca will explain trapped rooms
and you fight a goblin. Moving along. Stairs down.

Floor B2:
Empty hall. Keep moving.

Uh-oh. 3-way split. Which way to go?

In front of you is the Gott Statue, signifying the end of the dungeon.

But, if you want a bit more experience and treasure first, head left and right.

Leave the room after opening the Gott Statue chest, and there's another
cutscene. The girl from before gives Orca a book, and a monster appears (the
same from before). Just when you think it's gonna be a boss fight... Orca takes
a stand. And, unfortunately, it doesn't look good for him.

Orca is taken out, and the next you know, it looks to be coming after you.
But you get a System Error, and the book floats down on you (It's the Book of
The Twilight, an Event Item).

Look, it's a man-guy.

A monologue by Kite (the game doesn't show the real world, just The World, so
it wouldn't show what actually happened). Now, you're back in Altimit.

   _______
  |Altimit|

You'll have mail explaining you can only login to the Delta and Theta servers.

Go to the BBS, and Kite will post a message about Orca. Nothing new here
other than that, go Login.

Heh. You can't. I wonder why.

Quit, and you should have mail. It's from "Au]$". The message is partly
messed up, but it says:
  To the one who holds the book.
  Skeith is looking for me.

  There is no time.
  Please. Help me.

That sounds bad. Go back to The World, and try logging in now. Nothing on the
BBS yet. What? It works now? Wow.

   _______
  |Mac Anu|
You log in, and find yourself being circled by a female Heavy Blade User.
She'll confront you about staring at her, and ask if you're a newbie. Kite
won't answer, so she leaves.

Walk down a bit. The man to your right is a Recorder. If you're not playing
the demo, he can save the game for you.

Keep walking. Off to your right, just before the bridge, the path leads down,
and to an healing item shop. Buy some if you want, if you feel you have enough,
whatever. Your call.

Do weapon shopping if you want, trade with some of the people there.

Credit: fedor56301@yahoo.com - Name Koji
If you can, find Koji in Mac Anu. He has a weapon called the Reitei, a very
nice level 11 Thunder weapon. He's not too demanding on the trading, you can
probably offer the treasure you found from Bursting Passed Over Aqua in the
Gott Statue. If you can't find him now, wait until after you've gone a bit
farther (after the next field, actually), and you'll be able to go to a field
and come back, each time generating new people to trade with, such as Koji.
This weapon will last you for a good while (though I don't think you can
upgrade it at any Springs on Delta, you'll have to wait a bit until Theta.)


When you are ready, go to the Chaos Gate and Examine it. Black Rose will come
back to you, asking you to take her to the Forbidden Hidden Holy Ground. Battle
level 7. Not a good idea, but you have no choice.

   ____________________________
  |Hidden Forbidden Holy Ground|
Big cathedral. Head towards it. Kite will fight a Goblin (cutscene). Black Rose
about pissed her pants. Who's the newbie now?

Another cutscene, around a statue of Aura. And who shows up... but Balmung of
the Azure Sky. He comes in, kicks some ass, and tells you to leave. Pretty 
standard routine for him.

Black Rose attacks the infinite HP monster, and Kite flashes back to Orca.

He hears a voice, telling him to open the book. Here, you use Book of Twilight.
No choice. You use it.

Kite gains his mostly unique ability here, the ability to data drain. And his
clothes change. For whatever reason. You find a Virus Core M, and Balmung calls
you "the same as the virus". Another series of cutscenes.

   _______
  |Mac Anu|
If you want some better trading items, or just a good weapon to have around,
head back to Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field. You can throw your amateur blade
in the Spring of Myst there and get Phantom Blades. Or you can do smart trading
with items you found and possibly get Shadow Blades, an even higher level.

The trading people are random, so I can't tell you for sure if you'll find any-
thing in particular, just look around, talk to people, and try to trade.

   _______
  |Altimit|
Anyway, you can log out now, and there are a few new posts on the BBS. Or so
it seems. Your post about Orca was deleted. Odd.

There's also a post about a game of Tag. It's a Goblin. If you beat him, you
win something. He gives you keywords or it. May as well try, right?

But first, go check your mail. You'll have 2 mails, one from Helba and one from
Black Rose. Reply as you want. News about "The World for Idiots". Whatever.

   _______
  |Mac Anu|
Let's go play Tag. Login, and you'll be back in Mac Anu. Wait. Maybe no tag
yet after all. Those guys have interesting news... Go find the Catgirl and the
guy with her. Mia and Elk. You'll see a cutscene with them, and Elk talks
about Aromatic Grass. *cough* Mia wonders about the bracelet neither Elk nor
Kite can see. Yup. Now go play Tag.
It's the Detestable Golden Sunny Demon.

   _____________________________
  |Detestable Golden Sunny Demon|
You're greeted by Stehoney, and asked to play tag. Well, that's the point of
coming here, right?

Chase him around, attacking him. If you're having trouble, feel free to use a
Speed Charm to help out. Otherwise, it's not difficult. Not like he attacks
back or anything.

Yay, you get the Goblin Cap for beating him. As well as 130 EXP. Not bad.

Now, find that annoying bouncing thing. Investigate it, and you'll get the
Mandragora Key Item. It's Grunty Food. There are several of these, and they
will come in handy once you can get to Theta.

Just go around, examine stuff. Whatever. Then Gate Out.

Call up Black Rose to join a party, and head on back over to Bursting Passed
Over Aqua Field.

   _______________________________
  |Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field|
It can never hurt to level up, and 2 swords are better than 1. Or is it, 3 are
better than 2, in this case? Whatever. In the rooms next to the Gott Statue,
the Portals will be back. Kill, and take treasure.

The Gott Statue is, of course, still gone. So go ahead and leave. For me, it
was enough for level 2. Hopefully for you as well. Also, if you didn't before,
you should have gotten All Dungeon Portals Open this time. That's good.

You may want to continue leveling up. Head to a new field (just choose one...
make sure it's not too powerful).

Now, once you think you're ready, log out. Go read the BBS. You should have
several new Keywords to use. Such as Expansive Haunted Sea of Sand. That's
where you wanna go.

   _____________________________
  |Expansive Haunted Sea of Sand|
When you arrive, you're greeted by another Twin Blade user, dressed a bit like
a ninja. He tells you he came because he saw the message on the BBS, but the
Admin turned him away. Feh. Find the dungeon, and head in.

Sure enough, the Admin tries to turn you away. So? Ignore him and move on.

B1:
Nothing in the first room but the Admin. Move along, defeat the monsters, and
move along again. Assuming you leveled up enough, it shouldn't be too
difficult.

Move forward in the next room (west) and get the treasure lying beyond the
door. Now leave, and go down the other path. Following it leads to the stairs.
Get the symbol in this room, and head down.

B2:
Head forward into the next room, fight, and move along. Follow the forward
path.

At the break, head to your left (east). Get the treasure, and head back down
the other path. Fight, move along, and down stairs.

B3:
Move forward, along the path. No enemies. And that green stuff from the ground.
I can't see how this would give anyone a good feeling.

In the next room, Kite sees a rather large monster. "... Data Bug?!"


|ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ|
|Boss Fight: He{dhu&__er (Headhunter)        |
|HP: 250 (after DD)                          |
|                                            |
|This fight's pretty straightforward. Hit it |
|repeatedly until you see "Protect Break!".  |
|Then, Data Drain it like it ain't no thang. |
|Now it has normal HP, just beat the snot out|
|of it.                                      |
|____________________________________________|

After the fight, you'll meet Mistral, who asks about your abilities.

And so it looks like you're not the only one who didn't listen to the Admins.
Nice enforcement job, huh?

She gives you her Member Address, and so you can get a Wave Master in your
party now.

You have no choice to go on and finish the dungeon. Kinda sucks, but oh well.
Next you know, you'll be back in Mac Anu.

   _______
  |Mac Anu|
Whee, look, Piros. A Heavy Axeman. A victim class of ugly translation.

He asks to you watch him save a friend. Yeah. Right.

Go ahead and agree. He says he'll meet you there. Do your stuff, and head off.

   ________________________________
  |Indiscreet Gluttonous Pilgrimage|
You should see the dungeon immediately west of where you start. Just head there
for now, ignore the field.

B1: Still no Piros. Hrm. Straight. At the break, heading right will lead to a
portal and some urns. Left is a portal, some boxes, a Golden Egg, and a chest.

The forward path is where to go to find Piros. Well, on the way, at least. To
the right of the fork is some more treasure-y stuff. Left is the down stairway.

B2: A tip. Don't try to take on a Headhunter alone with level 6 Kite. You know,
the boss we just fought. Just don't try it.

Go straight, and north. Continue north. East. East more is portal, North are
the stairs down.

B3: East is a portal, west is the Gott Statue. But don't forget the purpose of
coming here. Head back to the intersection, heal, and go north.

To fight a simple Rock Head. Not that powerful any enemy, and not a Data Bug
as was, I'm sure, to be expected. Just kill it. Wood works well, since it's
Earth and all.

He gives you his member address, so now you can get an arrogant Heavy Axe with
you as well. Again, automatically back to Mac Anu.

   _______
  |Mac Anu|
You'll get a notice that you got new email. Log out, and go check it. First is
a warning about your investigations. Then, a notice about winning a contest,
and quite likely a friendly email from Black Rose. Let's go claim that prize.

You get a Book of Law. Apparently its use will boost your character level. So,
try and use it.

Insallation Error? Character override forbidden? That's odd.

Soon after you get this, or maybe you have already, you should get more email.
It may take a few, but soon you'll get one from Mia, asking you to meet her to
learn about your bracelet (specifically, about Gate Hacking). So, go meet her.

   ______________________________
  |Boundless Corrupted Fort Walls|
So, to get to the bottom of the dungeon... alone. Could be a little tough.

An admin telling you to go away. Again. Bah. Keep on.

B1: West. North at the symbol is treasure, south treasure and a continuing
path. East and down.

B2: East, and make your way north. In the 3-way, E and W both have treasure.
North lies where you need to go. And west is the way down.

B3: Mia will talk to you again. Head west. Treasure, corpse, and south. Whew.
Tought fight here. For me, at least. East is another portal. North from there
is a dead end with stuff. South portal. From there, west and south. Stairs
down. Finally.

B4: South and west. North. East. South. Continue. Down.

B5: North. See that purple mist? That's a signal. It means "Heal your ass best
you can 'fore you walk through this door." Especially when you're soloing like
now.

And auto-gate. I really would like to get a Gott Statue beyond a boss one day.
Mia and Elk both give you their member addresses. Wow. 6 people now (including
Orca).

Mia's a blademaster and Elk's a wavemaster. Mia happens to have 666GP when she
joins you. 

Mia'll lead you through a tutorial on Gatehacking involving Closed Oblivious
Twin Hills.

Hack the gate. Ooh. Purty colors.

You can make a choice. Go for the Field All Open or go to the dungeon. I went
for the FAO, for one, because it's an AO, and two, I needed the levelling.

But it's up to you.

B1: North and north. And north. North-down. And... north? Wow. Ooh! Lemee
guess this one! North! Now there's a split. I wonder if the north path is the
right one. Well, west is a long hallway. But it doesn't go anywhere other than
to an Immature Egg. East continues past the next room, but leads to a dead end
with a chest. Which leaves... wow. North. And north-down.

B2: North... look at that. A boss door, to the north. Heal, rest, wait for your
SP to return.

|It's easier with 3 people. Elk will be near |
|useless until you DD, as the guy seems to be|
|unaffected by skills and scrolls. Just keep |
|at him alongside Mia, and let Elk handle    |
|healing. Once you can DD him, give the Skill|

Yay, auto-warp. And new mail.

Lots of new BBS posts as well. And news.

Lots 'o stuff. Log back in, and there's Balmung. And then Helba. Gettin' crazy
here.

Logging back out will bring more. Emails and posts.

There's another email from Aura, a bit harder to decipher...

I want to be born. To live.   (Thanks to too many people to name, sadly for the
That is all I want.             help on line 1... still no clue on line 3...)
<?>. <?>.
Bearer of the bracelet. Help me.
Before there are any more
casualties.

The email from Black Rose enables you to head on over to Theta server.

You could, at this point, either go ahead and go to Theta server, or head to
look for the Spiral Edge. I'm going for the Spiral Edge first, but if you want
to head to Theta, skip ahead.

At this point, only Piros and Mistral are available to adventure with you. So
invite them along, and let's go.

   ________________________
  |Raging Passionate Melody|
The dungeon is *directly* north of where you start. So head north, and go in.

B1: You'll see Natsume waiting inside, afraid to go in for the Spiral Edge. 
Head past her north. East leads to a portal, treasure, jars and urns. North is
a large area with 2 portals and several chests. West then south leads to the
stairs.

B2: South and south. West wraps around north to loot. East leads directly to
loot in the next room, and continues on east. It then wraps north to the stairs.

B3: North and north. East is a portal. West is the last portal. North is the
Gott Statue, with the Spiral Edge and some treasure. You can choose to give the
Spiral Edge to Natsume, and she'll make a certain comment, and give you her
member address. Yay.

Now, to Theta.

  |Dun Loireag|
Wow. Talk about a name change... Dona Loriak was the romanji of the JP name...
Black Rose is waiting for you here.

Look! Puchis! If you head to the south of the town, you can feed one for the
purpose of raising it. You can either just give it food or use my guide later
on (well, Stan60's, but it's here) to determine what one you want.

This is where there was another Aura sighting. North quite a ways is the
dungeon. I'm not sure how far it is south, but that may be quicker.

B1: North and north and north. East eventually leads to loot, but there are 2
portals in the way first. West, south, south, south is stairs, or break east
before the least south for a symbol and some loot.

B2: South. South is a portal and treasure. East is one of several "nothing 
rooms". Another is east again.

East of there is another. And another. North is loot, south is a portal and
loot. 

Back north, west, west. North is a large room with a portal. North again. West
is portal and loot. East is portal, then north to the stairs.

B3: North, east, east, north. Keep on and you'll find... nothing. It's a dead
end, at the end of the dungeon, with no Gott Statue. Odd.

Head over to Delta.

   _______
  |Mac Anu|
There's a scene with Mia and Elk... Mia seems to not understand a basic human
emotion... odd. Then Elk comes to talk to you. He asks you to accompany him to
Plenteous Smiling Hypha.

   _______________________
  |Plenteous Smiling Hypha|
A rather high level place, in comparison to others. But not too bad. Though it
does have to be just you and Elk...

North of you is the dungeon.

B1: North. East is treasure. West is a path ot T2 room. North to T1 room.

In T1 room, east is treasure, north is treasure, and west is T2 room.

In T2 room, south is path to O room, north is path to treasure, and west is
downstairs.

B2: West. North. Ha. Elk insulted me (in battle... "Staying alive is important
you know."). North again. And again.

B3: Again. West is a portal. Heal before going north, it's a boss-door.

|as this guy's got some bite, and Elk won't  |
|be much good otherwise until you DD. After  |

They leave you all alone. Apparently you don't matter to them at all anymore.
Oh well. Not like they won't still come with you.

Log out, read the boards, and check your mail and news. 

Log back in, and Mia gives Piros a "Magic Love Potion"... heh. Looks like we
have to go find the cure... invite the other of your choice to go with you and
Piros. High level area...

  |Putrid Hot-blooded Scaffold|
Find the dungeon. I really can't remember the direction I went to find it...

B1: North. North again is a portal. West and north and north. Downstairs.

B2: East. South. West. South. Treasure. West. North. Down. 

B3: North north north. Down.

B4: North. West. North. East. East. Get the Gott Statue. Now to go for the
Remedy.

B2: South. West. Follow the trail to the Custom Remedy.

  |Hideous Destroyer's Far Thunder|
This is where the Kotetsu Sword is supposed to be.

You'll see the dungeon directly west of where you start, so head over that way.

B1: Sanjuro's disappointed. Aw. Head on anyway. North and north to a fork. Go
East for minor loot, West for stairs.

B2: West west. West is loot, north is a portal and stairs.

B3: East is a portal, as is north. West is the Gott Statue. Wow. Lookit that.
The Kotetsu Sword that isn't here...

If you give it to Sanjuro, he'll give you his Member Address and a Tolerance
Book. Much more useful than Piros' Diary...

Head over to Theta...

  |Soft Solitary Tri Pansy|
Don't miss the chest behind you. South. East. East. South, and you should get
an All Field Portals Open. But there's still a lot to check out before the 
dungeon... East, South for 4 chests. North, East from there for a Piney Apple.
Then West to the end for some more Piney Apples. Now East East North North
West West for the dungeon.

B1: Kite is forced to take the Love Letter to Gardenia. North North. East East
for some loot, East East for more. North for another break. East and west are
again loot. North is Gardenia, who runs downstairs. Follow.

B2: West is a portal. East is where you need to go. South at the next break for
another portal and treasure, north to follow the path to Gardenia again, who
goes downstairs again.

B3: East or west doesn't really matter, they wrap around to the same place. If
you're going for the All Open, go east, there aren't any portals west as far
as I can remember, but there are several east. When you get to the center,
directly north of where you started, head north. More chase.

B4: East of the O is the last portal. West is the Gott Statue. Get it first.
North is a battle where you help out Gardenia. She'll give you her member add-
ress for helping her out. Yay.

Your next destination, the real place where Aura was seen on Theta. But... it
was locked. And you need a Virus Core Q to get in. 

Log out and you'll probably have email from Mistral, asking to play with her
sometime soon. Respond, and log back on. She'll be talking to Apeiron. He'll
end up giving you the item. Mistral will ask you to go with her to a dangerous
area. 

   __________________________
  |Collapsed Momentary Spiral|
Another locked area... but you can get in here.

Find the dungeon. Whee, Data Bug.

B1: North. East at the break for loot, west for stairs.

B2: East east. South. East. East.

B3: East. East. Heal. North for boss.

Let's try this again. Hack the gate and go in.

These hacked gates are always dark...

B1: South. East and west are loot. South. South south.

B2: South. West. South is a long passageway with a portal. North is down.

B3: North north. And you find Harald's Note. And Epitaph 00.

Summon Gardenia and whoever else you want to your party.

   ________________________________
  |Beautiful Someone's Treasure Gem|
To the dungeon.

B1: North. North. North. East and west are loot. North are the stairs.

B2: North. East is a path with portals and loot. West. North. North. East.
East. Down.

B3: East. North most is the Gott Statue, where you will find a Graceful Book.
The rest is portals and loot. 

Log out, check the board, check the news, and check your mail. Then head back
to the board. There should be a post to Orca from Bob. He said he'll meet at
an area that is probably Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field. So head over there.

   _______________________________
  |Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field|
Bob greets you when you enter the field, tells you about Linda, and gives you
Secret:Reason.

Let's go meet Linda now.

   ________________________
  |Buried Pagan Fiery Sands|
B1: North. West is a couple portals. East is one portal. Follow the path (no
breaks) to find the stairs.

B2: North. East is a small path with a portal and some loot. West is a break.
West more is a portal and loot, north and east to another break. East is a loot
room, north is Linda and an auto-gate. Bah.

Why are there these level 22 areas on Delta? Stupid supposed "level cap" on the
servers.

Oh no. Gate Hacking. Need an O, which you should have, 1 C, which you should
have, and 4 Bs, which you might have. If not, go data drain until you get them.

Ack! Gate hacking and it's not night. Well, yes it is. But it's not dark due
to all the snow. 

Get to the dungeon.

B1: North, portal. East for a couple of portals and loot, west for the path.
At the next break, north is lots of portals and some loot, east is a portal
and the stairs.

B2: East. East and South are loot-y rooms, north is a path. At the next split,
west is a portal and loot, north is loot, and east is a portal and stairs.

B3: Just follow the path, no breaks on this floor. When you reach the end, it
is another white room. You get another piece of the Epitaph and auto-gate.

Log out and read your mail. Another mail from Black Rose about where to go.

   __________________________
  |Great Distant Fertile Land|
B1: North. East is 3 portals and 3 chests. West is another break. South from
there is a portal, north are the stairs.

B2: North. East is a portal and a loot room, north is a loot room, and west is
a portal, loot, and stairs. 

B3: West. South is a loot room, west leads to the Gott Statue. Get it first.
Now go back and go north. You'll find Meg talking to an Admin, who promptly
leaves. The Admin pressures her into keeping it a secret by convincing her it
is a dangerous place. Bah.

Now you're trying to get to the board quick, before an Admin deletes it. Too
late. Read the rest of the posts, check your mail, and check the news.

Go to The World, but quit without logging in. You'll have mail again.

This is it. Chosen Hopeless Nothingness. Hope you're ready, 'cause it's where
you're gonna fight the last boss.

You also have mail from Aura.

  I can't run any more.
  If Skeith catches me...
  There's still time. There's still
  time. There's still time. There's
  still time. There's still time.

Log back in, make sure you're at a respectable level (I'd say around 30 at
least), and head to Chosen Hopeless Nothingness with your favorite party. 
Your favorite party with Black Rose in it, anyway. 

   ___________________________
  |Chosen Hopeless Nothingness|
B1: East is a portal and loot room, north is a portal, west is a portal, loot,
and stairs.

B2: North. East and West are both paths to loot and portals, north are the
stairs. 

B3: Just follow the path until the break. Here, north is a portal and loot.
East is a portal then a portal and a break. South from here is a portal and
loot, north is a portal and stairs. 

B4: Follow the path until the break. It doesn't matter which way, both have 3
portals on the way to the same place, and both have 4 chests. Just pick either
north or west, whichever you like more. Either way, when you get into a room
with 1 portal, 2 chests, and exits to the north, south, and east, go north.

B5: North. North. Make sure you're fully healed and at your peak now... 'cause
the next door north is the last boss.

|Boss Fight: Skeith                  HP:4500 |
|You're pretty much just gonna need to beat  |
|him senseless until you can Data Drain him. |
|Set First Aid! as a priority. You need to be|
|constantly on the defensive while fighting  |
|him. He can Data Drain, which isn't good. It|
|takes both an Antidote and a Restorative to |
|recover from it. If you see him go up into  |
|the air, run the hell away. Be prepared to  |
|Ressurect, 'cause someone's probably gonna  |
|die when he does this. Just don't let it be |
|all 3 of you.                               |
|                                            |
|After you Data Drain him, it's pretty much  |
|the same, but let your wavemaster(s) in on  |
|the action. He's quite a bit easier, I'm not|
|sure he can Data Drain or Judgement, but he |
|can still jump into the air, and it still   |
|hurts like hell.                            |

Watch the pretty movie. Watch the credits. DON'T TURN THE GAME OFF. Save your
game when it asks you. Now read your mail. Read the news. Now go read the BBS.

You can either go fight the last Goblin King now, or go to the hidden dungeon.

Either way, you need to get back to Mac Anu.

I'll do the Goblin King first.

   ______________________
  |Detestable Golden Gate|
Dear God. This is the worst of them by far. My recommendation is picking up
a Bom-Ba-Ye, many Mage's Souls, and many Speed Charms. Speed Charm first, then
go at her constantly with Staccatto (I found it best due to how cheap it is
combined with how many times it hits). When you run out of SP, use a Mage's
Soul. If you let Martina sit there for a minute, she'll put a Health Charm on
herself. Don't let that happen. Healing 17 HP every couple seconds really hurts
on this. Once you beat her, she'll give you the Imp's Pin and tell you to equip
the Goblin Items for "something good" (Summon Goblin skill).

   _______________________
  |Hideous Someone's Giant|
It might be in your best interest to not take a Wavemaster with you, unless you
want to use them for First Aid purposes. 'Cause the boss is Magic Tolerant, so
it's gonna come down to your physical prowess, not Elk or Mistral's strengths.

B1: Follow the path north and east to a split. South is a portal. East is loot.
North is the path. Follow it. At the split, west is a loot room, and south are
the stairs.

B2: South. Well, we know what's south of here, why not look around first? Since
that boss is stronger than Skeith, might wanna hold off as long as possible.
Or not. Whatever. East is a path leading to loot and portals.

Rest up before heading into the next room.

  |6.25 - Puchiguso Raising|
This section's related enough to the Puchi Food that I figured it should be a
subsection of it rather than on its own elsewhere.

In .hack//Infection, there are 3 kinds of fully grown Puchigusos to raise, each
with their own stat requirements.

All Puchigusos have a Size requirement of 30. For the Noble Puchiguso, this is
the only requirement. If the other stats don't fall into the necessary range
for either of the other Puchigusos, it will become Noble.

Once a Puchiguso is fully grown, you'll be able to trade with it

This information is also here thanks to Stan60, and his mad knowledge. ^_-

                  Noble Puchiguso     Poison Puchiguso        Iron Puchiguso
  Size                  30                  30                      30
  Body Odor             NA                 0-20                    3-17
  Rebel                 NA                -5-15                   -2-12
  Brutality             NA                10-30                   13-27
  Intelligence          NA                 5-25                     8-22
  Purity                NA                -5-15                   -2-12
  Give Item        Grunty Flute
  Trade Item                              Claymore             Master's Axe
                                         Charged Axe           Flame Sword

In raising Puchigusos, get their stats to where you want them, and feed them a
bunch of Golden Eggs to get their size to 30. Since Golden Eggs only increase
Size by 2, you'll get the Puchiguso you want.

 |8.1 - Affection|
Another section brought to you by Stan60. If I'm not careful, he'll be taking
over this guide. ^_-

You can raise the affection of a party member by giving them gifts. Their
affection is measured in Ryu Book 5 and used to unlock omake.

Giving a gift worth 0-99 GP increases affection by 1.

Giving a gift worth 100-4,999 GP increases affection by 10.

Giving a gift worth 5,000-9,999 GP increases affection by 20.

Giving a gift worth 10,000-19,999 GP increases affection by 50.

Giving a gift worth 20,000+ GP increase affection by (100?).

|9.0 - Credits|

Well, the inspiration comes from, for one, Bandai. Since, you know, they made
the game.

Also, from all the stupid questions posted on various .hack message boards.

Thanks goes to Rhyste for helping me to figure out what Element is what, since
it doesn't say in the game. Actually, it does, and I was just a dumbass and
didn't notice. But, still, she helped.

Stan60 was a great help in the Puchiguso Food Data and Affection section.

Raistlin Majere helped with the translation of what all the Ryu Books record.

Welp, due to a few certain people being asses and signing me up for God knows
what, I've removed all contact information. It gets really annoying when 75% of
the email that I get consists of join confirmations of crap that I didn't sign
up for, and mail return notifications of mail that I didn't send. If you need
to contact me, use the board. I'll give no other way.
