(For those of you that don’t know, they are in the process of making new games, called .hack//G.U., that takes place about 7 years after the games, with a completely different story line.) *Also, so you know, when you see asterisks around something, it means it’s a note that will tell you something that will most likely be going on throughout the guide, or something important, so I highly recommend reading them if you want to know what’s going on…* ------------------------------------------- Controls L1 or R1-Rotate Camera L2-Change Camera R2-Reset Camera Left Analog Stick or Directional Pad-Move Character, Move around menus Right Analog Stick-Zoom in, Zoom Out, or Rotate the camera X Button- Do Actions with character, Select and Confirm things in menus Square Button-Chat Menu, used to give orders to party members Circle Button-Cancel Start Button-Options Menu Select Button-Switch Map ---------------------------------------------- Personal Menu This will explain everything to you in your personal menu. Skills Menu: It will show all the types of skills you have. Attack Skills: Close up attacks that usually have an elemental property to them. Magic Skills: More ranged attacks that are completely elemental. Recovery Skills: Skills that are used to heal you or your party Strengthen Skills: Skills that are used to strengthen your attack, defense, maybe strengthen you elemental stats. Only works for a limited amount of time. Weaken Skills: Skills that are used like the reverse of strengthen skills, and on your enemy. They also only work for a limited amount of time. Data Drain: The most important skill in the game. It has many purposes, and only the main character Kite has it. It can be used to severely weaken enemies, get virus cores, or obtains good weapons or armors. But be warned, you have an infection level. If you use it too much without killing monsters normally, you will have some bad effects put on you. Some of them are a status affect, losing experience, or if you get high enough, you will have a system error, which is a game over. Inventory: It will show all types of item you have, except for key items, which will be shown later. Items: It will show all items you have. Things like healing items, stat boosting items, or things like fortune wires, fairy orbs, and sprite ocarinas. Scrolls: Scrolls are items you can use to do magic without using SP. Also you can use them to boost your stats or lower enemies’ stats temporarily. Books: These can be used to permanently increase your stats. There are many different kinds, some raise physical stats some raise magical stats, and some raise magical stats, but they aren’t easy to come by… Treasure: These are items that you obtain from the Gott Statue Chests with a piece of equipment or other item. They have no real use, except to sell for a decent amount of money. Equipment: These are your weapons and armors, the things you equip. There are a ton of different kinds, so remember that. Only non equipped ones go here. If you have some equipped, they won’t be in here. Key Items: This will be a place for Event Items, Grunty food, Ryu Books, or Virus cores. Event Items: These are non-usable, but you will get them, and they usually have something to do with the story line. Grunty Food: This will show all the kinds of Grunty food that you have collected; they are what you use to feed to your Grunty. Virus Cores: One of the most important things in the game. You will need them for Gate Hacking, and you can get them from Data Draining. Book of 1000 or Ryu Books: Show all Ryu Books you have so far, which are obtainable from Data Draining. You get them every 10, 20, 30, Data Drains all the way up to 80. They display information about what you have done so far with the game. If you fulfill a certain requirement for the game, like so many hours, you will get bonuses like background music, wallpapers, or movies. Discarding Items: If there is anything you don’t want, and for some crazy reason you don’t want to sell it or you need to make room, you can discard it here. Simple. Status: It will show your party’s status, like the current lvl, experience, money, and stats. Level: Your Character’s level. (Duh!) Exp: The current amount of experience your character has out of 1000. Once you reach or get past 1000 experience, you gain a level. But the lower the monsters are than your level, the less experience you get from them. Money: The total amount of money you currently have, also called GP. Class: The type of person you are. There a six classes which are: Twin Blade, Heavy Blade, Blademaster, Long Arm, Heavy Axeman, and Wavemaster. Skills: All the skills that you can use, which are from you equipped weapons and armor. The only exception to this rule is Data Drain, which you will always have. Equipment: This shows the weapon and armors you have equipped right now. Added Effects: Effects that are on your equipment or armor that can be done while in battle, but at random times, so don’t rely on them. They are more like bonuses. Parameters: Will show all your stats. From attack, to magic, to defense. It is all shown here. I won’t explain them, because they are self explanatory. Except for the elemental statuses. The elemental statuses will affect your attack and defense with a certain kind of element. Spirit and Body statuses will affect your defense against status effects. Equipment: You can change Kite’s equipment here, if you have something to change it with in your inventory. Party: Here you can add or remove party members in your party. You can also disband a current party, which removes everybody. Know that you can only do this to people if you have their member address. They won’t always be available, so you may not want to use the same people every time. You can also only do this in towns. Area Information: If you are in a field or dungeon, you can see the area information for the place, like the level, the keywords and the element of the area. Gate Out: If you are in a field, you can use this to get back to the root town. It can only be used on a field, and it also can’t be used if you are in a battle. Log Out: You can log off of the world, but again this is only available in a town. --------------------------------------------- Options Vibration: Set the vibration for the controller on or off.

Title Screen: Quit the game, and return to the title screen, just remember if you do this, save before you quit, because it won’t save automatically for you. --------------------------------------------- Chat Menu Skill Usage: These are commands you can use to tell your party members what to do vaguely, as I’ll put it.

Standby: Don’t move, and recover yourself --------------------------------------------------- Epitaph of Twilight I’ll tell you what I know about the Epitaph of Twilight, which is a pretty good amount. A young woman named Emma Weilant loses both her parents at a very young age, but she is from a very rich family.Her uncle takes custody of her, and offers to adopt her. The only reason he wants to is to get to her assets. She declines, but she can’t access them until she is 20. She was then 18, so she decided to put herself through nursing school. It proved to be a huge problem for her. Finally stress and overwork catch up with her, and she started coughing up blood. She went to her doctor, and he told her to check into a health resort in southern France. There she has a supernatural experience, which later leads her to write the “Epitaph of Twilight”. The Epitaph of Twilight is about a race of sprites that cast no shadows being devoured by something called the “Cursed Wave”. At this time, 2 people, Helba the queen of darkness, and Apeiron the king of light band together to fight the wave. They send out 3 people, 2 half sprites, and 1 human, who all cast shadows. Helba sends out the 2 half sprites, and their names are Filli the white, and Bith the black. They go in search of the Twilight dragon, which is the only thing that can fight the “Cursed Wave”. Emma Weilant posted the Epitaph of Twilight on her personal sight, and very few people saw it. She died at the age of 28, and the original texts were scattered. Some of her very devoted fans put together parts of it, and got about 70% of the original texts back. But since it was in original text format, anybody could modify it. So her work was butchered, and you can’t separate the original from what people added to it. At that time, The World’s predecessor, Fragment came out. It was designed by the famous programmer, Harald Hoerwick, and was believe to be based of the Epitaph of Twilight. *The reason for this section was to provide some background info on the .hack series, which a lot of it revolves around the Epitaph of Twilight*. ---------------------------------------------------- .Hack Project Facts Here I’m going to tell you all that I know about the .hack project, which is a pretty good amount. *But be warned, there will be spoilers for a lot of the .hack stories.* The story really starts with .hack//A.I. Buster, which is a book. It follows the System Administrator named Albireo that helps an A.I. named Lycoris, which is a failed experiment by Harald Hoerwick. She is a pre-aura, pretty much. He goes around collecting parts of her, and is followed by a very low level character named Hokuto. The book also details the events that led up to Orca and Balmung defeating the one sin. They asked Albireo to help them, but he declined. He did go watch them fight it though. The one sin was a very interesting monster. It would only attack when the players attacked. Orca and Balmung eventually found out how to defeat it. They had to attack it with one kind of skill or spell, then as the monster attacked back, hit it at the perfect time with the kind of skill or spell the one it was casting against it. He eventually deleted Lycoris, (supposedly) and found out that Hokuto was not a low level character, just a high level one masquerading as one. Hokuto was an online poet named W.B. Yates, and wrote a poem about Orca and Balmung. Here I will type the poem. Damage done to the evil shaped one, Too massive to compare. Balmung of the Azure Sky, Orca of the Azure Sea, Together they gallop at full speed. In the depth of my bosom, Your names shall remain. You are none other than the descendents of Fianna. Together with the warrior Who wears the eyes of the stars. That is where Balmung and Orca get their title the Descendents of Fianna. Also, the one who wears the eyes of the starts is Albireo. After the book comes .hack//sign, which tells the story of Tsukasa. He is a wavemaster that can’t log out of “The world”. He travels around the game with his monster the “Guardian”. He avoids talking to most people, but later opens up to Mimiru. The Crimson Knights are a group of people that help CC corp. destroy illegal players. They hunt Tsukasa, because he is seen as an illegal player. Tsukasa is also the one that is supposed to awaken Aura. He eventually does awaken Aura, and he, or rather she is able to log out. New information, or more forgotten information have surfaced about .hack//sign. Laboratory69@aol.com e-mailed me a while ago with some info. He stated that I omitted the origin of Skeith in .hack//sign, which really is pretty important and interesting, so here it is: Sora, a twin blade, was put into a coma by Morganna and transformed into Skeith. Thank you again laboratory69 for the useful info. Sorry,but this is all I really know about .hack//sign. The games, .hack//infection, mutation, outbreak, and quarantine, follow the player kite as he uncovers the mystery of the world with his mysterious bracelet given to him by the girl aura. As he journeys through the game, he discovers his bracelet has 2 uses, he can data drain, as in altar monster data, and gate hacking,which means he can hack protected areas. He meets many new friends, and a girl named Blackrose helps him along his journey a lot, if you don’t know, she has more effect on the story than anybody besides Kite. Together with the bracelet, they find and defeat things called data bugs, which are monsters with infinite hitpoints. He is out to find out why his friend Orca fell into a coma while playing this game. Along the way he data drains and defeats the monsters Skeith, Innis, Magus, Fidchell, Gorre,Macha, Tarvos, and Corbenik. They are also known as the 8 phases. They are the key to giving birth to Aura, and the main evil person, Morganna will do anything to stop that. He also fights Cubia, which is somehow connected to the bracelet. Cubia is really the after effect of the bracelet. The reason it came about is because the bracelet was being used. The reason it gets better every time you fight it is because it copied. Kite’s character data, and is using it to monitor him, so it grows as you grow. During the games, there are also things going on in the outside world. These events are shown in .hack//liminality, which is a 4 set DVD that is paired with the games. It follows the going on of the outside world, where 3 high school girls and an old CC corp. employee that are out to find out what is happening inside the world. Mai, one of the girls knew somebody that fell in to a coma, whose name was Tominati, who is also known as Sieg in the world. She was there with him when he fell into a coma, but she only fell unconscious. Through the dvd’s you see how the events in the world are affecting the outside world. There are power outages, computer crashes, and many other events. They later help to save Kite during the final battle, but they end up crashing the real omega server. It’s interesting, but it doesn’t really matter if you watch it or not. It does help to show you some of the outside world. After the events with kite, a few years later Aura sets up a fake contest to give up the Avatars of Kite and Blackrose to 2 people. Twins Shugo and Rena win them, and they continue on with the story of the .hackers, as they were dubbed. Shugo later on meets up with one of Aura’s children (yes later Aura makes her own AI’s) named Zefie. He leads her to her mother along the way. Along the way, Balmung, now a system administrator for the world watches him. He is later fired, and turned back to a normal character. During his quest, He meets the Cobalt Knights, who imprison him because they see him as an illegal character. They are lead by Kamui, who carries the divine spear of Wotan, given to her by Albireo. We find out that Albiero quit after the events about Kite, I think. There are returning faces from the .hack games which if you beat you should recognize. Along the way Mireille meets up with Wiseman, who was a character in the games. Also, Mireille is Mistral’s kid, who is four years old and somehow playing the world... You will also of course see Balmung, and Mistral will talk a little in the books. You will also see BT in the background once if you look really really hard, also. Right now they are also in the production of 3 more .hack//games for the ps2. They are called .hack//G.U. Not much is known about them, but what I know I will tell you now. It takes place 7 years after the original games, and The World has become a lawless virtual reality, where anything can happen. The World is ravaged by PKers, or Player Killers. Haseo, also known as the Terror of Death, goes around killing Pkers. People have taken up the names of the 8 phases, but I don’t know why. There is also somebody named Tri-Edge, but nothing is known about him except that he looks a lot like Kite from the original games. Haseo, also strangely has some kind of weapon that allows him to change classes. There are also new classes. One is career werewolf, which is only available to high level players that fulfill certain requirements. The other two that I know of I’m not sure on. One is fighter, somebody that fights without weapons, with only their fists. I don’t know anything about the latter 2, but Career werewolf if for sure, as it is talked about and shown in the .hack//legend of the twilight bracelet manga. ------------------------------------ Characters *Spoilers about some of the characters!!! Stop here if you don’t want some of the game spoiled, because some of them are crucial parts of the story, or parts that are better found out in-game.* Kite- He is the hero of the story, and what a unique looking one he is. He was first invited to play The World by Yasuhiko (also called Orca). Soon after Orca falls into a coma, and he receives the twilight bracelet. He is marked as an outlaw player, and he is almost deleted. He has many friends throughout the story, and his main reason for playing The World is to find out why his friend Orca went into a coma. In the real world he is an eighth grader in Japan. Nothing else is known about him in the outside world. BlackRose- She is kind of like Kite’s sidekick. She is alongside him in all the major battles she faces. She first started The World to find out why her brother, Kazu fell into a coma. One day,he was playing The World, and he asked her to say pick some keywords, and she chose Forbidden Hidden Holy Ground. There he fell into a coma. That is why BlackRose wanted Kite to go there with her, because she was scared to go by herself. In the real world, she is a sophomore in high school, with what seems like a good amount of friends. She plays volleyball, and seems to be very good at it. She used to live in Malibu, but now lives in Japan. (I think). She is known as the Mermaid in her gym class, because she is the best swimmer by far, because she used to live next to the sea. Also, as for her age, she is sixteen. She has a little brother, named Kazu, who falls into a coma while playing the game. Mistral- She is just some random player that sees Kite perform data drain, and is interested by it. She plays the world just for fun, like many other people. She is mostly a rare hunter, which is why she probably is so attracted to Kite. In the real world, she is a housewife in her late twenties. She later has a baby named Merei. Piros- He is an idiot that thinks Kite is worthy, because he trusts his eyes. He is what may be considered a cheater in a way, as he has hacked his very tiny head, and hacked his character so his theme song will be played anytime he is on a field. In the real world, he is a game designer, which is hinted in many ways in his e-mails. He is also 31 and married. He is otherwise a freak in my opinion, and asks very strange questions… Elk- He is a weak person that always follows Mia, for reasons that I won’t reveal right now, as it does matter in some ways to the story in .hack//quarantine, and is pivotal to the story. He follows Mia around, and for looks for Aromatic grass to give to Mia. He is otherwise just a normal character that follows a cat. In real life, he is a very quiet seventh grade with not many friends. He started playing the world to change, and he met Mia, and has been following her ever since. Mia- She is no normal player. Obviously, her character was hacked, hence the catlike form. She is also the only character that can see Kite’s bracelet without him Data Draining. She runs around The World with Elk, mostly looking for Aromatic grass. Nothing is known about her outside of The World, at least nothing I’ll reveal here, as it is pivotal to the story. Very pivotal to the story so get over it! Natsume- Natsume is a very weak twin blade character that is pretty pathetic. She is a regular player that sought help, and found it in the form of Kite. In the real world, she is a 15 year old girl in 9th grade named Natsume Oguro. She is a librarian at her school, and loves reading science fiction. She also loves reading the Lord of the Rings books. Gardenia- She is a normal player that somehow has a fan club. She doesn’t like many people, and for some reason has an obsession with flowers. She is usually quiet, but she talks a lot more around Kite. All that is really known about her in the real world is that she likes raw food, cats, and flowers. She also likes Hong Kong movies… Sanjuro- He is a normal player that is always after some kind of rare katana sword. He is an American, who is accessing the Japanese server of The World from America. He lives in South Dakota, and spends some of his time volunteering to teach kids Japanese. He also loves watching “Mr. Mifune” movies. Orca- He is one of the Descendents of Fianna, a party who cleared the “One Sin” event. He is also known as Orca of the Azure Sea. He is a very famous and powerful character in the world. He is one of the characters that falls into a coma while playing the game. In the real world, he is an eighth grader that has been playing the world for quite a while. He is a friend of Kite in the real world, and his real name is Yasuhiko. Balmung- He is the other character that with Orca cleared the “One Sin” event. He is known as Balmung of the Azure Sky. With getting the finishing blow on The One Sin, he gained a special character upgrade, and got the fully functional wings. He is one of the few characters that have been playing since the Fragment Era, which was the predecessor of the world. He is very famous and powerful, but he is not nice like Orca is. Before he met Orca, he was a lone player, and very cold towards other people. Nothing is known about him in the real world. Helba- She is a world renowned hacker. Her character name is taken from the Epitaph of Twilight. Little is really known about her, except that she is a hacker. She doesn’t reveal anything about her self in the real world, except maybe something to do with security. Of course, hacking is a crime punishable by death, and that is why she doesn’t say anything about her real life. -------------------------------------------------- Walkthrough Start When you finished selecting your character and use name, you need to check your mail. *We will use the default name Kite from now on out. I don’t care what you call your character. Call him anything you want, heck be creative.* Also, read the news if you want to, but it doesn’t really matter. Save; change your screen if you want, but when you’re ready, access The World. Read the board, it will teach you a few of the things you need to know if this is your first play through. When you first login, your first Orca will greet you. He will then give you his member address, and teach you how to use the Chaos Gate. Just so you know the Chaos Gate is the way you get from Root town to Root town, or to a field. He will also teach you how to add people to your party. When he finally stops blabbing on, he will have you warp to.., DELTA Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field Delta is the name of the server just so you know. There are five servers in the games, and they are Delta, Theta, Lambda, Sigma, and Omega. You will only get to use Delta and Theta in this one, but the others will become available in the later titles. Here, Orca will teach you how to work the camera, and tell you about the field and Area Elements that determine the type of field. Next, Orca will tell you the basics of magic portals and dungeons. Then, you will learn how to fight monsters, use skills, and command party members. *This will be a lot of the game, so get used to it. Some people say it can get repetitive and boring, but I find it fine.* Once you can finally move, you can do some things. You can change to first person view, or see more of the field. Go open all of the remaining magic portals, and let Orca do the work for some extremely easy experience. Then head towards the dungeon. Orca will then explain about how to get out of the dungeon, and show you the basics of treasure chests. Basically brown=safe, blue=danger. If you want to get some quick money, you could run in and out of the dungeon, because the chests regenerate every time you come back in. Just be sure to use the fortune wire on the blue chests. You will see a scene of a girl being chased by a thing with a red wand. *I will always provide the quickest way to the goal of the dungeon, and if it is possible to get the Gott Statue chest, I’ll go there first.* B1: West, *Orca will explain that if there are magic portals in a room, then you have to clear them to go to the next room.* North, Down. B2: North, North to the Gott Statue Chest. You get Steel Blades, Yellow Candy, and Rainbow Card from the chest. Then go back the way you came. As you leave the room, you are transported elsewhere. The Girl appears that you saw earlier, and gives Orca some kind of book. He mentions something about a rumor. Then the thing with the wand appears. Orca tries to attack it, but it Data Drains him. It then tries to drain Kite too. A huge wand comes out of nowhere, and stops the thing just in time. Then the words System Error flash across the screen. Kite is knocked out, and the book is secretly given to him. You then see a mysterious woman with the wand that saved you. You find out your friend Orca fell into a coma while playing the game. Check your mail, then try and log into The World. It seems it is down for maintenance, so get on the board, and you will automatically post about Orca falling into a coma. Go back and check your mail. You will get an email from the girl that gave Orca the book, who’s name by the way is Aura. The message is garbled, but I’ll translate it for you. To the one who holds the book. Skeith is looking for me. There is no time. Please, help me. *Just so you know, Skeith is the thing with the red wand*. After you read the email, you can finally log back into the world again. You then see a scene in Root Town, with a girl named BlackRose. Once the scene is over, sell stuff, trade if you want, maybe even explore a little bit. Save if you want and once you’re done, go to the Chaos Gate. BlackRose gives you her member address, and the keywords: DELTA Hidden Forbidden Holy Ground. Add BlackRose to your party, and head there now. *I will always tell you to sell your stuff and trade and save while in a town. They are highly recommended, and you would be stupid if you didn’t. Keep in mind that you can only hold 40 different types of items at any given time, and 99 of any one item*. DELTA Hidden Forbidden Holy Ground Head to the church when you get there, and if you can’t see the church, you are blinder than a dead person. You will see a scene, and BlackRose will confess her noobiness. After some conversation, another player named Balmung appears, and so does a monster. *Just so you know, Balmung is a real asshole most of the time, and I really don’t like him*… Balmung kills the monster, but it turns into a Data Bug. Then there’s this really dramatic scene, and you hear Aura’s voice. She tells you to open the book. You do, and you gain a bracelet, which gives you the ability to Data Drain. It allows you to rewrite monster data, and turn Data Bugs into normal monsters. One you can finally leave, after many annoying scenes, and more of Balmung being an asshole, you can finally leave. Log out and check the boards. You will find that your message about Orca falling into a coma has been deleted. Also, you get your first goblin tag challenge at: DELTA Detestable Golden Sunny Demon. * I will cover all of the goblin tag challenges in a later section.* Go to your desktop and check your mail. You have an email from BlackRose, so reply to it by saying “Thanks”. There is also an email about Data Drain; it’s extremely important so read it very carefully. Also, read the news. If you want save the game, and I recommend that you do. Log in and you will see two people talking about a character that looks like a cat. So go back to the alley, and you will see a scene where the cat character talks about your bracelet. *You can only see the bracelet during data drain, and nobody else can see it unless you perform data drain, so there is something peculiar about this character*… Log out, and check the board. The important keyword you get is: DELTA Expansive Haunted Sea of Sand. You will need it to progress the storyline, but make sure that you read the whole board. You will also get the keywords: DELTA Closed Oblivious Twin Hills, which will come into play later. You will also get: DELTA Discovered Primitive Touchstone, which is a pretty good place to level up after you beat Expansive Haunted Sea of Sand. It also can get you some pretty good things to trade, since it is a level 5 dungeon. Log into the world, add BlackRose to your party. Trade, shop, and sell. I would recommend getting better equipment. Also stock up on healing items for later. If you can find some, get armor with the La Repth healing spell on it. Save and get read to go to: DELTA Expansive Haunted Sea of Sand *My level: 5* When you first get here, another twin blade character says that the operator told him he can’t play here. Clear the field if you want, and then head to the dungeon. In B1 the Administrator will tell you to leave, but go on anyways. B1: North, West, North, East B2: East, South, South, West, South B3: South, East to boss battle. You will see a data bug, and your first boss battle will ensue. Boss Battle: Data Bugged Head Hunter Issue the Skills! Command, and use skills yourself. Keep doing that until it protect breaks, then data drain it. You will get a virus core f when you data drain the monster. It will turn into a normal monster, so just bring it down with a few skills. Once you finish it off, a female Wavemaster named Mistral will give you her member address. You will automatically be warped back to the root town. The stupidest most annoying character ever will be there. *And I mean it!! If you really like Piros, you deserve to be shot.* He will invite you to DELTA Indiscreet Gluttonous Pilgrimage. Save, sell, trade, and get some new equipment for your new party member. I recommend getting the Twin Blade weapon that Mistral has. Also, you should go to DELTA Discovered Primitive Touchstone to level Mistral up if you haven’t already. I’m not going to cover it thought. Why, you might ask? It is pathetically easy, and it has nothing to do with the story line. So once you’re ready, head to: DELTA Indiscreet Gluttonous Pilgrimage *My level: 8* When you first arrive, Kite will say Piros is at the bottom of the dungeon. Clear the field if you want, but if you’re at my level, it will be a huge waste of time in my opinion. So if you want to clear the field, then head to the dungeon. B1: North, North, West B2: West, North, North, East, North B3: North, West, *To Gott Statue chest* North to battle You will see Piros getting his butt kicked by a monster. So, sadly you have to him. If it was my choice, I would just let him die… Also, this is just a normal monster, so you shouldn’t have any problem at all. After the battle, you get Piros’s member address, and some stupid scroll. *About Piros’s, he is a game creator which he kind of hints at in his e-mails. Also, his stupid, stupid, stupid, head was hacked. That is why he has a small head, and no helmet like all the other male heavy axeman. That is also how he has his own theme song every time you go onto a field with him. Also, I told you that there would be spoilers, so don’t blame me*. After you get his address, you will automatically gate out to the town. *Believe me when I say this, Piros is the most annoying part member you can have. I never use him unless you’re required to. The reason is because of his really idiotic tiny head, stupid theme song, and because he is just so plain annoying. Also don’t forget the way he calls you fair eyes*. *cough gay cough*. Store things, sell and trade, don’t forget to save. When you’re done,log out and check your mail. You will have 2 mails. One of them is anonymous and lucky you, it’s a threat of some sort. Yippee do da day!!!!! The other is from CC corp., and my guess so it the threat… But it will say that you are some kind of winner of a contest. So log back in, and go to any store. They will give you the book of law. You can’t use it so don’t even try. *When you get the bracelet, the girl Aura also made your character data untouchable. The book was made to delete you character data, so be happy she did it. Books that go into key items is unusable, just so you know from here on out*. After you get the book, walk around until you are notified that you have mail. Log out, and check it. The cat-like character you saw in the alley of Mac Anu e-mails you, telling you to go to: DELTA Boundless Corrupted Fort Walls. So once you’re ready, head there alone. Sorry but you can’t have any part members with you. It’s extremely easy anyways, so you shouldn’t have any problems. DELTA Boundless Corrupted Fort Walls *My level: 9* When you first arrive, Mia will tell you to come to the bottom of the dungeon. I really don’t recommend clearing the field, since you’re alone. An administrator will be at the first level of the dungeon, but just ignore him and keep going. B1: South, West, South, East B2: East, North, North, West On B3, Mia will start talking to you again. After that, just keep going on through the dungeon. B3: West, South, East, South, West, South, South See a pattern on B3? Hehehe. Mia will talk again on B4. She doesn’t make much sense this whole time. And besides, why doesn’t she stop hiding and come out and talk face to face? It’s easier that way. B4: South, West, North, East, East, South, South B5: North, North, to boss battle Boss Battle: Data Bugged Red Wyrm Since you are along, use skills and heal with items when needed. Watch out for its breath attack, and if you have a water spell or skills, I recommend using it. Don’t use healing skills. They take way too long when you’re along it will protect break eventually and Data Drain it for a Virus Core M. When it is a normal monster again, just attack it until it dies. Really watch out for its breath attack now. It can kill you if you don’t watch out. I ended up on 4 hit points at one time during the battle… Scary. Once you kill it, Mia will talk a little more, and then will leave. You will automatically be transported back to town. When you first get there Mia will give you her and Elk’s member addresses. Add them to your party. *Just so you know, these two will be available very little during the series, so don’t get too attached to them*. Sell stuff, get new equipment, trade, save, do whatever you want. Once you’re done, head back to the Chaos Gate to learn how to hack gates. Hacking gates is simple really. You just need the required number of virus cores to do it, which are obtained from Data Draining. Before you head to the area, I suggest leveling up a bit, and also maybe take a look at the posts on the board. You also will have a new tag challenge if you finished the last one. It will be at: DELTA Detestable Golden Messenger. Also, if you read the post about posts about weapon information, somebody named Natsume is looking for the Spiral Edge at: DELTA Raging Passionate Melody. There will also be some news, but nothing important,really. DELTA Raging Passionate Melody *My level: 10* Clear the field if you want, then head to the dungeon. You will see Natsume, another Twin Blade. She will talk a little bit then whine about being weak. She also wants the spiral edge, which by the way is a crappy twin blade weapon by the way, but let’s go get it for her!! B1: North, West, South B2: South, South, East, East, North B3: North, West, North to Gott Statue Chest Once you get to the Gott Statue, you’ll get the Spiral Edge when you open it, and you’ll automatically be transported back to B1. Give Natsume the spiral edge, and she’ll give you her member address. (NOT ANYTHING ELSE!!! If you’ve already been here, you’ll know what I’m talking about…) Gate out, save, sell, buy, do whatever. Then, head to the protected area: DELTA Closed Oblivious Twin Hills *My level: 11* Virus Cores: M-2 When you first get here, Mia will talk about Protected Areas, and then you can move. *Some inside information, Protected Areas are blocked off because the 8 phases have passed through them several times, causing mass data corruption. It also caused raw code to be able to seen through the graphics, which is why you see numbers and junk every time you enter a data bugged information. Just a little more information that you might want to know. Not that it affects anything, really.* Clear the field if you want, then head to the dungeon. B1: North, North, North B2: North, North, North B3: North, North to boss battle Geez that was easy wasn’t it? Just keep going North, forever…… Mia talks moreabout data bugs and virus cores, and then finally a boss battle ensues. Boss Battle: Data Bugged Stone Tuttle Have Elk stay back and heal, while you and Mia use your best skills to bring the sucker down. It shouldn’t be that hard. It will eventually protect break, so data drain it for a virus core N. Then just use skills until it falls, which shouldn’t be that long. You can also data drain it again. If you’re like me you are in desperate need of virus core C’s. If you do, just hope you don’t have my luck and lose 200 experience points, and not even get a virus core. Once the battle is over you will explain what happened to Orca to Mia. Mia and Elk will log out, then you’ll automatically be transported back to root town. You will be notified you have mail, so log out, and check it. There are some new posts on the board, but nothing important. You will have mail from a woman named Helba. She is a key player in the games, so read this as it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. It will tell you a lot about virus cores, which are extremely important in this game. When you log back in, you will see Balmung. You tell him all about Orca, and then he says he doesn’t trust you. He’s crazy in my opinion, and I think his name should be Balmunkey. Log out, read the board then check your mail. You will get one from BlackRose about the board. You will also get the Keywords THETA Quiet Eternal White Devil, and you now can go to THETA server. You will also have one from the girl, Aura, which I’ll translate to the best of my abilities: I have to be born to live. That is why I wait. Mother. Morganna… Bearer of the bracelet. Help me. Before there are any more casualties! (I’m just this good :P) Log in, and head to THETA server. I recommend checking some things out, taking a look around, and maybe try and breed grunties. I recommend equipping Piros if you haven’t already, because there will be a place you’re required to take him to, and you won’t be able to trade or give him anything at that time. Just a fair warning. When you get to THETA, BlackRose will ask you if you’re going to THETA Quiet Eternal White Devil. So add her and one other person to your party and head to: THETA Quiet Eternal White Devil *My level: 13* When you first get here note the fact that it was really east to get into. Clear the field, which this time would most likely be more beneficial to you, and head to the dungeon. B1: North, North, North, West, South, South, South B2: South, East, East, North, North, East,North B3: North, East, East, North, North Can you believe it? All that work for nothing!! It turns out to be a dead end, which really blows don’t it? No boss, no Gott Statue, just one huge waste of time!! Head back to DELTA server, and you will see a scene between Mia and Elk. You find out that Elk is just a bit strange, because he likes the Kitty and all. He will then invite you to: DELTA Plenteous Smiling Hypha. Just so you know, only you and Elk can come, no other party members. DELTA Plenteous Smiling Hypha *My level: 15* When you first get here, you see that the place looks perfectly normal. Elk will then beg for your bracelet, he’ll even give you everything he has. Then the screen flickers, and Elk says that something is wrong. You suggest going check the dungeon. So once you can move, clear the field if you want, then head to the dungeon. The dungeon looks obviously like it was infected, so get a move on you idiot. (Just kidding) B1: North, West, North, WestNorth, North, West, West B2: West, North, North B3: North, North to battle When you first get to the room, Mia will be there, a long with a portal. She will yell Elk’s name, and he will spazz out and run towards her, also activating the portal. This also starts a boss battle with: Boss Battle: Data Bugged Killer Snaker Mia will join you in the battle, but you can’t control her. Have Elk stay back to heal you, and hit it with your best skills. It will take quite a while to protect break, but when it does, data drain if for a virus core P. Use skills, and have Elk heal. Watch out, because it is still very dangerous. After the battle, Elk and Mia will talk with each other a little bit, and then they will log out together. You will automatically head back to Root Town. Sell, restock items, trade, store, and don’t forget to save. Then log out and check the board. There are a lot of new posts. One is a new tag challenge at: DELTA Detestable Golden Scent. Also, somebody named Sanjuro is looking for a katana at DELTA Hideous Destroyer’s Far Thunder. It seems that there is somebody named Miss Gardenia that has a fan club, and they are headed to THETA Soft Solitary Tri Pansy. After that, the rest of it really doesn’t matter. Also, there is some new news, but nothing important, unless you consider cat toilets pivotal to the story. Log back in, and you will see Piros talking to Mia. She gives him an item, which turns him orange. Kite asks him what he got, and being the idiot Piros is you find out it was a magic love potion. You are supposed to go look for a cure at: DELTA Putrid Hot Blooded Scaffold. But first, there are some side quests that you can do. Well let’s get started by heading to THETA server. Then head to: THETA Soft Solitary Tri Pansy *My level: 15* Clear the field, which I recommend because it’s so friggen easy. Head to the dungeon. On B1, you’ll see Gardenia’s fans, which are all girls. (Wonder what kind of love they are implying?..) They force a love letter on you, and you are supposed to take it to Gardenia. B1: North, North, North, North In the room with the stairs, you’ll see Gardenia, but she says you have no manners, and then refuse the letter and head down the stairs. B2: North, East, East, North, West, North You’ll see Gardenia again, but she still refuses the letter and again heads down the stairs. B3: North, East, East, North, West, West, North, OR North, West, West, North, North, East, East, North. You see Gardenia again, and yet again, she goes down the stairs. B4: North, West, West, to Gott Statue then North, North to battle You’ll see Gardenia again, this time going up against a Guardian, so help her take it down. After that, she’ll finally accept the latter, and you’ll get her member address. Congratulations on getting your first long arm! (They are my favorite class, but not because of the games.) Gardenia leaves, and a second later her fan club shows up. You tell them Gardenia has left, so they leave, and then you finally head back to Root Town. Now head to DELTA server, and help Sanjuro with his sword problems at: DELTA Hidden Destroyer’s Far Thunder *My level: 15* Clear the field if you want, and then head to the dungeon. You will see Sanjuro here, and he says that he can’t find the Kotetsu sword. So it is up to you to find Sanjuro’s sword. B1: North, North, West, West B2: West, West, North, North B3: North, West, North You’ll get the Kotetsu sword, and be transported back to B1. Give Sanjuro the sword, and he will give you his member address and a Tolerance Book. You’ll be transported back to Root Town, so save, sell, trade, and restock your items. Add Piros to your party, and head to: DELTA Putrid Hot Blooded Scaffold *My level: 15* Just to warn you, I’m going to provide directions to the key items for this dungeon first, then head to the exit from there. Clear the field if you want, then head to the dungeon. B1: North, East, East, South, North, West, West, West, West, North, East When you get the Key Item remedy, Piros will ask for it, so you give it to him, and he turns… Pink. B2: East, South, West, South, West, West, North, West, North, East, West, South, West, North You will get the Key Item Custom Remedy, which Piros again wants, so give it to him, and he turns… Yellow. B3: North, North, West, South, North, East, North You will get the Key Item True Remedy, so give it to Piros, and this time he turns back to normal for a second, then… Orange again. B4: North, West, North, East, East, East to Gott Statue, then North, West, West, South You’ll get the Key Item First Remedy so give it to Piros, and he’ll finally be normal again. He’ll give you Piros’ Diary… (The crappiest items ever. Seriously, it lowers a stat permanently!) He’ll leave, and then you will be transported back to Root Town automatically. Sell, save, trade, buy, and then log out. There will be some things on the board, but no keywords. Check your mail, and BlackRose will have e-mailed you about THETA Quiet Eternal White Devil. The keywords were actually changed and the new words are: THETA Cursed Despaired Paradise. So, log back in, and head to THETA server, and BlackRose will be there. She’ll ask you if you’re going to THETA Cursed Despaired Paradise. So add her to your party, and go to the Chaos Gate, it’s protected and you need: Virus Cores: A-3 B-2 Q-1 And of course, you don’t have Virus Core Q. Well you shouldn’t unless you used come kind of cheat device, which means you are the most pathetic person ever… So leave the menu, and BlackRose says that she thinks somebody modified the message, like somebody deleted yours. *You’ll later find out who does this in .hack//mutation, if you can read between the lines, that is. I’m not going to tell you here though.* Run around for a little while, then you will be notified that you have mail. One will be from BlackRose, telling you how hopeless you were at first, so reply to the mail any way you want. I personally choose the first one.* You will also have one from Mistral, talking about not seeing you, and waiting to see you perform Data Drain again, so choose either reply. Either way the story line won’t be affected. When you log in, if you’re on THETA server you’ll see Mistral talking to a heavy axeman named Apeiron. *He also has something to do with the game, but again you’ll have to read between the lines.* He will be trying to sell her an item, but she can’t afford it. She logs out, and then he tries to sell it to you. He then complains a bit, and then just gives it to you. He leaves, and Mistral comes back looking for him. She will tell you about some keywords she over heard people talking about. Those keywords are: THETA Collapsed Momentary Spiral. So put Mistral and somebody else and your party and head there now. THETA Collapsed Momentary Spiral *My level: 18* Virus Cores: A-2 N-1 When you first get here, you can see that it’s pretty infected. Clear the field if you want, I recommend it, because is saves you some time in the long run. Once you’re ready, head to the dungeon. On B1, Mistral comments about how it looks, but she has no clue that the place isn’t supposed to look infected… But let us continue on. B1: North, West (easy eh?) B2: East, South, East, East B3: East, East, North to battle Boss Battle: Data Bugged Thousand Trees Set Mistral to First Aid! command, and have you and the other person you brought use skills. If you have anything with earth, use that as it is weak against earth element. It’ll protect break eventually, and that’s your chance to Data Drain him for a virus core Q. Then set everybody to skills!, even Mistral. It’ll go down in a few seconds. Mistral will say she wants a bracelet like yours, and then you explain everything that has happened. She thinks it’s an event. (She is a bit thickheaded…) She then leaves, and you are automatically transported back to Root Town. Sell, trade, save, buy do whatever. You will be notified you have mail, so log out. If you finished the last tag challenge, there will be a new one at: DELTA Detestable Golden New Truth. Check your e-mail and you’ll have one from Gardenia saying she’s going to: THETA Beautiful Someone’s Treasure Gem. Also, you have another one from BlackRose which you should reply to by saying “Got Virus Core”. Log back in, because you have several things you can do. You can do the tag challenge, which I’ll cover later, you can do Gardenias dungeon, or you can be really lazy and continue on with the storyline. When you first log in, BlackRose will be there waiting to go to: THETA Cursed Despaired Paradise. But first, let’s go to Gardenia’s dungeon. So add Gardenia and another party member (preferable BlackRose, just incase she needs training for the next dungeon.) So let’s head to: THETA Beautiful Someone’sTreasure Gem *My level: 20* When you fist arrive here, Kite will ask what is here. Gardenia asks if some flower I’m not even going to try to spell would be here but, then she says it’s on some kind of mountain. (She is really strange and also obsessed with flowers…) Clear the field, yet again I recommend it, then head to the dungeon. *Watch out for Menhirs as they can revive fallen monsters.* On B1, Gardenia will start talking about dandelions, and how itchy the fluff could be… B1: North, North, North,North B2: North, West, North,North, East, East B3: East, North, North You’ll be at the Gott Statue, and you’ll get Graceful book. Kite asks Gardenia if she wanted him to come so he could find the item, but she just says you think too much. You’ll automatically be transported back to Root Town. So sell, buy, save, trade then head to: THETA Cursed Despaired Paradise *My level: 21* Virus Core: A-3 B-2 Q-1 Enter all of the Virus Cores, and hack the gate, and you’ll be on the field. BlackRose says it is different, but it shouldn’t be anything new to you. Clear the field, which again I recommend. Also use the Spring of Myst if you want, then head to the dungeon. One thing I love about dark elemental places is that they seem to have a ton of symbols. B1: South, South,South, South B2: South, West, North B3: North, North, North to room You’ll end up in a strange room full of teddy bears and a bed. You then hear the words: And so, I shall name her Aura Without you, she would not exist. The shining girl Aura We will entrust her with out will. Our future is in her hands. She is our… You will then receive Harald’s note. Kite finally figures out that Aura is the girl in the white dress. BlackRose asks if it was the girl that gave you the bracelet, then she sees more. Shunning the field, broken by wave. The shadowed girl whispers, “Surely, I will return.” Alas, the truth unbeknownst, Awaiting her at journey’s end: Eternal mourning for her land You then get Epitaph 00. Kite and BlackRose comment on it, and then you are automatically warped back to Root town. BlackRose leaves and you’re left. So sell, trade, save, and you will be notified that you have mail. Log out. There is some new stuff on the board; you should pay some attention to the MISSING thread, just so you know. Check your mail, and BlackRose will have e-mailed you to tell you she is going to look into the MISSING thread. There is some news; you might want to read the article about “Induced Coma with online game”. Check the board again, and there will be a post called “To Orca”. Read it, and then head to: DELTA Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field. DELTA Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field *My level: 23* When you first arrive here, you will see a long arm named Bob. Kite explains to Bob about Orca being Data Drained. Bob says “that rumor… it can’t be…” It’s about something unknown, lurking within The World. Bob says somebody named Linda would know more about it. She’s at: DELTA Buried Pagan Fiery Sands. He then gives you Secret: Reason, and says that Orca was going to give it to you. You’ll automatically be transported back to Root town, so get a party together and head to: DELTA Buried Pagan Fiery Sands *My level: 23* Clear the field, I recommend it because there are only a few places left before the final boss. Use the spring of Myst if you want, then head to the dungeon. B1: North, East, North, East, North B2: North, West, North, East, North You will see Linda here. About the rumor its pretty much something with some other purpose lurking inside it. She says that Orca and Balmung were working together to find the truth. She explains that they are known as the descendents of Fianna. She tells you to go check out DELTA Lonely Silent Great Seal. You’ll then automatically be transported back to Root town. Now, let’s head to: DELTA Lonely Giant Great Seal *My level: 24* Virus Cores: B-4 C-1 O-1 Clear the field if you want the head to what is going to be a very simple dungeon. B1: North, West, North, East, East B2: West, North, North, North,East, North B3: North, West, North, North Yet another strange room, but this one takes strange to a whole new level. Half a chair, big holes in the floor? Looks like my Aunt hit this place when she was chasing food. You do get Epitaph ? though. But you can’t read it. You’ll then be transported back to Root town, and you’ll be notified that you have mail. Log out, and head to the desktop. Now, once you’re on it, you can’t do anything, and I mean anything until you read BlackRose’s e-mail, telling you that she and you are going to: THETA Great Distant Fertile Land. *Believe me you can’t do anything I tried… A lot :p*. Log back in and head to: THETA Great Distant Fertile Land *My level: 25* Clear the field, I highly recommend it, as this is the last place before the final battle. Then head to the dungeon. B1: North, West, North B2: North, West, West B3: West, West, West to Gott Statue, then West, North to goal You’ll see Alf’s friend, Meg here talking to a system admin. She won’t tell you the name of the place Alf went to, but she posted them on the board. So mosey on over to the board and check there. The message was deleted though. So check your email, and BlackRose will e-mail you complaining about it, but what can you do? You’ll also have some new news, but nothing important. Log back in, run around for a minute or two, and then log back out. You’ll have 2 very important mails. One is from Aura which I’ll translate: I can’t run any more catches me… There’s still time. There’s still time. There’s still time. There’s still time. There’s still time. The other one is from Helba who gives you Meg’s post that was deleted. Here it is: Meg THETA Chosen Hopeless Nothingness He said he saw a girl and a guy with a red wand playing tag. I received an e-mail from Alf’s Family, which said he slipped into a coma while playing the game. So log in, put BlackRose and somebody else in your party, *me personally I put in Gardenia* and head to: THETA Chosen Hopeless Nothingness *My level: 28* Virus Cores: A-1 B-4 C-1 P-1 When you first arrive here, you will see the bracelet shining. So once you can move, clear the field, which I highly recommend, and then head to the dungeon. Try Data Draining Mu Guardian monsters for Bom-Ba-Ye, a rare Twin Blade weapon with the Staccato skill on it. Also try Data Draining Goil Menhirs for a rare Heavy Blade weapon which I can’t spell. B1: North, West, North B2: North, North B3: North, West, North, East, East, North, East B4:East, East, North, North, West, West, North OR East, East, North, West,West, North, North B5: North, North, North to battle When you first get here, you will see Aura, but it’s too late. Skeith shows up behind her and Data Drains her. She turns into a red ball. Skeith then splits her into 3 parts, and the battle ensues Boss Battle: Phase 1 Skeith The Terror of Death This is the hardest battle you will face. I brought BlackRose and Gardenia, and had them attack while Kite stayed back and healed. Skeith has plenty of moves, which I’ll describe: Judgement- He freezes your whole party in ice, doing major damage. Jump- Skeith goes up in the air and shoves his wand down into the ground, causing damage. Data Drain- He’ll data drain one character, and cause every status effect in the game. Wand Strike- He’ll hit somebody with his wand, pretty much a basic attack. You will be spamming Health Drinks most of the time,along with Resurrects. Have everybody attack, including Kite. When he does his Jump, runaway so you can avoid damage. Also try and stay behind him. If you get Data Drained, issue the First Aid! command. He will eventually Protect Break, so Data Drain him for a virus core F. He will then have just 4500 hitpoints, so hit him with all you got. He still has his Jump move, so watch out. He can heal himself, and also cause individual status effects now, so watch out. I recommend using a speed charm so you can get away from his jump move, also. After you beat him, you are transported somewhere else,and Skeith’s body falls into the ground and makes some kind of silvery poor that starts bubbling. Things tart jutting out of the ground, and they hit the pool. You then look up and see a huge monster above you. You see Helba far above it. He then does some kind of attack that sends you flying, and you’re transported out of the place. Helba then lands and says “Cubia…” and leaves too. After that Kite says this: We have come so far …but we knew so little And now, The true battle was about to begin. Congratulations on beating the game!!! Watch the credits roll. You’ll then be able to create a “Data Flag”. Do so; believe me you’ll want to. Check your mail, you’ll have 2 from Roy@Bandai, one about the Data Flag, another about a place called: DELTA Hideous Someone’s Giant, and you’ll obtain a Virus Core T. You’ll also have some news, but nothing important. Check the board, and you’ll also have a new tag challenge. Check your mail again, and you’ll have an email from BlackRose, and maybe one from the other party member you took to fight Skeith. Log in and head to: DELTA Hideous Someone’s Giant *My level:30* Well since there is no field, head to the dungeon. B1: North, East, North, West, West, South, South B2: South, South Boss Battle: Parasite Dragon Have whoever you brought go up and attack the dragon, while you stay a safe distance away. And I mean that, stay as far away as possible, or you’ll be killed by his breath attack. Just make sure you brought along plenty of Resurrects, because you will be using them a lot… He will protect break eventually, so Data Drain him quickly to get Hyakkidouran, a rare Twin Blade weapon. After you kill him, Kite will say that this thing was infecting the ship.

If you equip all the armor, it should appear with the hat. Thank you again Laboratory for the info, and if anybody could confirm this, it would help me greatly. Stehony- The first goblin, so he has to be the easiest goblin to kill, right? Well cast a speed charm on yourself, and chase him around for a while. Sounds like fun doesn’t it? Just hit him with normal attacks, and he’ll go down really quick. Jonue- The second goblin, but still pretty easy. Cast another speed charm, and follow him around for a while. If you have a wood skill, use that on him for a quick kill. Otherwise you shouldn’t have any problems at all. Zyan- The third goblin and they still aren’t getting any harder. Cast a speed charm, and follow him. He might be a little faster, so you might have to follow him a bit more. Again, if you have a wood skill, use that a few times for a quick kill. Albert- The fourth goblin, and now you might have a bit of a problem. Cast a speed charm, and go after him. He’ll be a little harder to hit. Use skills, especially if you have a wood skill. He’ll take a bit longer, but he’ll go down eventually. Martina- Now this is actually hard. She can cast Rig Saem on herself, so watch out for that. The second use get near her, use a skill, then she’ll be off again. Bring a good supply of mage souls, because you’re going to need them to restore your sp. You might want to bring something to up your accuracy, because she can be hard to hit with skills sometimes. She’ll go down eventually, but if she gets the cast Rig Saem, it’ll be even harder, but it’s still possible. Grunties ============== *All credit goes to Josh Bossie (email@example.com) for being kind enough to let me use his grunty formulas* Noble Grunty: Just feed 15 golden eggs Iron Grunty: 4 Piney Apples, 3 Snakey Cactuses, and however many more Golden Eggs you would need to make it the right size. Poison Grunty: 4 Piney Apples, 3 Snakey Cactus, 1 Immature Egg, and however many Golden eggs you would need to make it the right size. This is all there really is to do with Grunties... Not that hard eh? Again, all credit goes to Josh Bossie for this section, as he was kind enough to let me use his Grunty Formulas, because I can't raise grunties to save my life.
