.hack//G.U. Volume 1 - Rebirth 

- Guide and stuffs
	- by Zer0

-----------------------------------------------------

This guide is written and compiled by Zer0. This is not a sole work of just
Zer0 though, by any stretch of the imagination. Many people from the 
dothackers.net forums helped me write this guide. Their forum is so awesome, 
I came up with this idea November 1st, and a couple hours later, I already 
had a lot of it done thanks to them. Check them out: www.dothackers.net

Special Thanks to: 
Wing (For helping me with the Doppleganger)

Just kidding.


BIG IMPORTANT NOTICE: I'm sure there's some sort of logical reason for this,
but GameFaqs.com does not allow entries with more than 80 characters per line.
That means that I have to end all lines in this FAQ right here --------------->
This is not how I wrote the FAQ, and was only told this after I finished it.
If the anything look weird, it's because I had to move some over to comply with
the 80 margin setting they enforce. The original, much better version is
available on www.dothackers.net

Phase 1 - Introduction/FAQ (INTRO)
-----------------------

Congratulations! You've got your hands on one hell of a game. .hack//G.U. is 
the industrial revolution of the previous 4 games. Before we go on to the rest
of the fun stuff, there's some stuff I'd like to address. This is my first
walkthrough of any sort, so excuse me if parts of it suck. :)

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Why don't I have the keywords listed in this guide?!

A. Keywords can be unlocked in two ways. You will collect some from reading the
 Forum and emails, but the majority are earned from scoring an A or S rank when
 you've cleared an area. Unfortunately, there's no way to collect all the items
 and monster data you need using the keywords you collect from the Forum and
your emails, so if you don't have a keyword that is listed in this guide, go
clear out a few areas and aim for high rankings. You can find out how to get
the keywords at the Keyword Guide.

Q: How do I change weapons really fast? I saw it in a trailer!

A: Unfortunately, that ability is not available in Volume 1 of .hack//G.U. It
is available in Volume 2 though.

Q: What happens if I convert/don't convert my saved data from old .hack games?

A: Check the Conversion section (Ctrl + F and type CONVRT)

Q: What is the Terminal Disc?

A: The Terminal Disc is a DVD that explains the previous four .hack games, and
brings people up to speed on .hack. As you play along the three .hack//G.U.
games, more videos become unlocked, and you can watch more and more.
Unfortunately, the Terminal Disc was only included in the Pre-Order Special
Edition of .hack//G.U. Volume 1 - Rebirth. You might be able to find it on eBay

Q: Where can I get the Haseo Action Figure?

A: The Haseo action figure was also a Pre-Order Special Edition only exclusive.
Sorry. Don't worry, you're not missing out on much.

Q: How can I level up my weapons faster?

A: In the town Mac Anu, there is a person named Corporal Yano. He is a human
tribal grappler. Once you find him, trade with him. He usually has a beginner
book or beginner text, which level up your weapons quite fast. Trade with him,
and then use them to raise your weapon level. After you trade with him, go
fight some baddies or walk around for a bit, and then find him again to trade
again. You can also trade with Henako, a female harvest cleric. She has the
same items. (Credit to Dark_Hacker and Kuukai from the dothackers.net forums)

Q: What's the max level I can get?

A: 50.

Q: What are the blue and yellow people in the Area Status at the Chaos Gate?

A: The blue number is the people at the location you're about to warp to. The
pink people are the number of people you've already met out of the blue number.

------------------------
Phase 3 - Ryu Books (RYU)
------------------------

Also called the Book of 1000, this keeps tracks of many interesting statistics
in your game. Each book keeps track of different things, and as you fufill
certain requirements, you unlock movies, wallpapers, and greeting cards. When
you complete a book, it's rank is raised. When you have raised the rank of all
the books, your guild rank goes up, and unlocks a new guild function. The guild
 level is capped at 3 in Rebirth.


----Ryu Book 1 - Battles

Description: This keeps track of how many battles you have won, how many
successful suprise attacks you've done, how many Rengeki attacks, and how many
Awakenings you have used.

Strategy: Don't really need a strategy, just keep fighting monsters. The level
doesn't matter.


----Ryu Book 2 - Trades

Description: This book keeps track of your trades with Party Members, how many
times you've invited a party member to join you, how many gifts you've given a
party member, and how much all the gifts are worth.

Strategy: Give your party members a bunch of crap, over and over. It'll get
your gift amount up real fast. :)


----Ryu Book 3 - Treasures

Description: This keeps track of how many times you've opened Beast Temple
Treasures (The treasure chests at the end of the level, in front of the
floating statue), how many normal treasure boxes you've opened, how many trap
boxes you've successfully opened, and how many objects (jars, muchrooms, etc)
you've destroyed.

Strategy: Go into a dungeon and play through it, opening every treasure chest
and object you see.


----Ryu Book 4 - Items

Description: Keeps track of all items, weapons, armors, and accessories you've
ever had in your inventory.

Strategy: Use the Item/Accessories List (Press Ctrl + F and type ITEM to find
it) and the Weapons/Armor List (Ctrl + F and ARMOR)


----Ryu Book 5 - Play time/Warps

Description: Keeps track of Play Time, and the number of fields you've gone to.

Strategy: For play time, you can leave your PS2 on overnight, and for the other
3 entries, just warp to different types of places.


----Ryu Book 6 - Arena

Description: This book keeps track of how many Arena Matches you've fought in,
how many times you've counterattacked (Using Rengeki), and how many Winner
Points (WP) you've acquired.

Strategy: Fight in the arena a whole lot to get your Arena matches and WP up.
To get your counterattack up, when the match starts, wait until someone
(probably the leader) begins to glow, and then hit R1 and attack that person.
Then back up, and wait for them to do it again. Repeat this process as many
times as you wish.


----Ryu Book 7 - Monsters

Description: This book keeps track of how many types of monsters you've fought.

Strategy: Use the Monsters list (Ctrl + F and MONST)


----Ryu Book 8 - Drive Time

Description: This book keeps track of how long you are on your bike, and how
many times you've crashed.

Strategy: Get on your bike, then ride around the town. Or leave your PS2 on
overnight while on your bike.


------------------------
Phase 4 - Bounty Hunter Guide (HUNT)
------------------------

Basically, if you go to any area with the last word as Beserker, you're more
likely to get a Player Killer once you enter a battle area. There are many
areas that will give you a battle right next to where you warp, such as
Protected Wraths Berserker (Submitted by johucoba) or
Counting Red Plum's Berserker (Submitted by Kirby).

------------------------
Phase 5 - (Un)Lucky Animals (LUCKI)
------------------------

Most fields and dungeons contain at one unlucky or lucky animal. You can
determine which animal it is based on the fact that lucky animals have a
musical note above their heads.

NOTE: NOTE: The lucky animal you find in each location depends on your
party. If these keywords don't work for you, try switching to Solo or
Partying with Kuhn and Pi.

------------------------
Phase 6 - Mecha Grunty (GRUNT)
------------------------

Mecha Grunty is a robot grunty who needs Chim spheres in order to fly away.
Every time you give him chim spheres, the net time he'll need one more than
that. Mecha grunt lies facedown in dungeons and on the field, and has a sweat
sign above his head. To get rewards for Mecha Grunty, go to the Harbor and
enter the house near the ship.

Hint: To finish this quest fast, warp to Counting Red Plum's Berserker. There's
a Battle Area right by you for the PK quest. If you look to the right, there's
a warp that will take you to the next island. Mecha Grunty is right by the gate
once you teleport. If you need Chim Chims, there's two trees on the original
island. Just kick one, get all the Chim Chims, then kick the other one, get the
Chim Chims, then go back to the other tree, and kick it. Repeat until you have
enough Chim Chims. This is what I did :]

------------------------
Phase 7 - Chim Chim Guide (CHIMC)
------------------------

Chim Chim carry the main form of energy used in the game, chimspheres. There
are 4 kinds of Chim Chims, and you kick them to get the chimspheres they have:

Chim Chims - The blue ones, worth one Chimsphere each.

Rare Chim Chims - The yellow ones, worth ten Chimspheres each.

King Chim Chim - The large golden ones. Be careful, they will attack you by
trying to squish you. Move out of the way and kick it three times. Move out
of the way again, then kick 3 times. Do it a few times, and it will give you
50 Chimspheres and sometimes a Chim Crown, which you can sell.

Chim Assassin - These don't actually have chimspheres, they take them away
if you stay in a dungeon too long. When red chimspheres start flying around
you, watch for these black and red Chim Chims, and kick them right away.
Otherwise, they'll start taking Chimsphere from you.

You can get rewards for your Chim Chim kicking abilities by visiting Dr. Kubo
in the Mercenary District.

NOTE: An item name surrounded by brackets [] means that it cannot be
bought/gained without an accessory item.

NOTE2: Sometimes the Guilds don't have the armors and items you might want.
If they don't, go do a few quests or a level up a bit, then check back.

Phase 12 - AIDA/Avatar Battle FAQ (AIDA)
-----------------------


--About AIDA and Avatars

Without giving too much away, AIDA is an "entity" you will see a lot of in the
//GU series. It's represented in the game thus far by strange black dots, and
sometimes manifests strange bug-like creatures that you will eventually fight.
Its official purpose and role in the //G.U. universe is as of yet still a
mystery. Contact with AIDA can cause comas in normal player characters.

An Avatar is basically data from one of the original eight Phases of Morganna
(those of you who played the original .hack games should be familiar with them)
that has been attached to certain player characters in The World: R2. This
special data gives those characters the ability to summon the Avatar data in
the form of one of the Phases, and control that data to some extent. These
characters are known as Epitaph Users, and can summon their Avatars to collect
information on and quarantine AIDA. However, sometimes you will find yourself
using Haseo's Avatar, Skeith, to battle other Avatars as well.


--Basic Avatar Controls

- Normal Mode:

[] button = Shoot
>< button = Slash
() button = Dash

- Protect Break Mode:

>< button = Data Drain
() button = Dash


--Basic Strategy

Skeith has a health bar, and so does your enemy. The obvious goal is to take
the enemy's health down to zero by inflicting damage, thereby inducing
Protect Break status, then put it down for good with a Data Drain attack.

Keep in mind that Skeith also has a set of stats for strength and defense,
which are based on Haseo's current level. If you are having a stupidly
tough time defeating an enemy during an Epitaph battle, take some time to
level up Haseo and then attempt it again when Skeith will be a bit tougher.

If your current level isn't a problem, the most basic strategy for Avatar
battles is to shoot the enemy with [] until it is stunned. Electricity will
appear around the enemy, and the word "Stunned!" will appear on your screen.
This is your signal to swoop in close to the enemy and use your friggin' huge
scythe to slash at it with the >< button in order to do massive amounts of
damage.

But it's not so easy as that. Every AIDA/Avatar enemy will have special attacks
that can make it quite frustrating to get it to stunned status in order to get
a few good whacks in. Luckily, these attacks are fairly predictible once you
realize the pattern, and you should be able to weather them without too much
damage to Skeith.

Once you manage to do enough damage to get the enemy's health bar down to zero,
a timer will show up at the top of the screen. As it counts down, you have that
time to attempt a Data Drain.

Again, it's not so easy. First, you have to press and hold the >< button. While
avoiding various enemy projectiles, you must wait until your Data Drain is
completely charged (you should hear a high-pitched, continuous sound when it's
fully charged, and the Data Drain bar will light up at the top of the screen),
and let go of the >< button when you've got a clear shot. If you get hit by a
projectile while charging your Data Drain, you have to start over from 0 charge
and redo it. If you let go of the button while the enemy is moving, you're
unlikely to hit it, so make sure it's stopped before you let go, otherwise,
back to the drawing board. If you don't manage to Data Drain it before the time
limit is up, it's back to the beginning.

On to specific enemies...


--AIDA <Anna>

This is the first AIDA enemy you will encounter that you are able to fight. It
looks like a microorganism that's been supersized. Not too tough, really, but
they're just for practice before you get to the big, mean stuff.

-Attacks-

A. Normal Shot (small damage): <Anna>'s standard, run-of-the-mill projectile.
Little energy balls spray out in a nondistinct pattern, aimed in Skeith's
general direction.

B. Kobold Bullet (small-medium damage): <Anna> shoots three larger energy balls
at Skeith that behave like missiles.

C. Agol Laser (large damage): <Anna> shoots out a huge laser beam directly in
front of her. It can hit Skeith up to three times per go, and <Anna> cannot
be stunned while performing this attack.

-Strategy-

This is pretty straightforward. Keep shooting until <Anna> is stunned, then
close in to slash with the scythe. Dash to avoid the Normal Shot, and smack
her Kobold Bullets away with the scythe when she uses the attack. When she
starts gearing up for the Agol Laser attack, you'll get fair warning if you
pay attention - not only does she stand still and start lighting up, but the
attack name will appear on top of the screen for a good couple seconds before
she lets go, along with the ever-helpful advice to "Dash to Evade." Not
surprisingly, I highly suggest dashing to evade...

Once you get her health bar down to zero, start charging for Data Drain. This
is actually kind of agitating. Since her Normal Shot is a spray, it can be very
 hard to evade... do your best to dash away from the spray while continuing to
hold ><. You have 60 seconds to manage a successful Data Drain, and if you're
patient, it's not a big deal. She'll wiggle back and forth for a while using
random Normal Shots, and occasionally stop for about 2 seconds. Make sure to
let go as soon as she stops, otherwise, you'll miss her and have to start over.


--TARVOS (Pi's Avatar)

When TARVOS becomes infected with AIDA and goes berserk, you get your first
real taste of what the Avatar battles to come will be like. It's tough, but
still more of a practice. TARVOS is interesting to look at, sort of an angel
with her hands bound above her head.

-Attacks-

A. Normal Shot (small damage): Small energy missiles.

B. Orb of Revenge (medium damage): Big energy ball that stuns Skeith upon
impact.

C. Strike of Death (medium to massive damage): TARVOS shoves a huge stake
through Skeith. Damage dependent on how many stakes TARVOS conjures.

D. Data Drain (small to massive damage): A damage-over-time effect. Smash
buttons wildly to curb damage done to Skeith.

-Strategy-

TARVOS is actually easier to stun than <Anna>. On the flip side of that coin,
however, she's got some nastier tricks, too. She'll start off with a small
Normal Shot, which in this case is a small burst of energy missiles. They're
actually easy enough to avoid, just start moving Skeith forward after she
shoots them at you. She sometimes closes her "wings" protectively around her
main body, and while she can be stunned in this state, you won't be able to do
damage, so try to avoid wasting your shots when she's in defensive mode.

As for the nastier stuff - after a few bursts of her regular Normal Shot,
she'll send a round of bigger missiles. Bigger equals more damage, but luckily,
you can swat at them with your scythe to destroy them before they hit you. She
also has an attack called Orb of Revenge that sends a couple big nasty energy
balls at you that stun Skeith if he gets hit. Smacking them each three times
with the scythe will prevent them from doing major damage. Unfortunately,
she has two more attacks that are unavoidable - the first is Strike of Death,
for which TARVOS will conjure up to three huge stakes and send them flying
into Skeith's body. The amount of damage done is dependent on how many stakes
she conjures. The final attack is her Data Drain attack, also unavoidable, but
thankfully it can be a minor concern - just smash all the buttons as fast as
you can, which will decrease the effect time considerably enough that Skeith
will take little damage.

Wear her down to zero to get a Protect Break, and then it's Data Drain time.
This one isn't hard at all. She'll send another barrage of small missiles, so
just move forward to avoid them while pressing ><. Then, she'll wrap her wings
around her body and float back and forth for a bit. Wait until she sits still
for a while, and then she'll open her wings (I guess she's playing Peek-A-Boo)
as soon as she does, let go and you'll put her down for good.


--MAGUS (Kuhn's Avatar)

MAGUS is basically a really huge sprig of leaves with a head, torso, and arms.

-Attacks-

A. Normal Shot (small damage): Rapid bursts of energy.

B. Leaf Guard (small damage): Rotating shield that sprays out Normal Shots.
While in place, MAGUS is immune to stun.

C. Unforgiving Bud (medium damage): floating energy mines that follow Skeith.

D. Flash of Green (medium damage): Lasers that surround Skeith and slice up and
down.

-Strategy-

MAGUS doesn't do a great deal of damage, and he takes massive damage while
stunned. The tough part is actually stunning him. He's quick, and has several
skills that makes him immune to your shots. He'll start with a regular burst
of his Normal Shot, which like <Anna>'s, tends to follow a nondiscriminant
pattern in Skeith's general direction. You can dash out of the way, but that
makes it harder to shoot him, so just try calmly moving back and forth while
he tosses them at you, all the while doing your best to shoot him back. Next,
MAGUS will bring Leaf Guard into place. This makes things more annoying, as
he is surrounded by a rotating ring of green shields that make him immune to
stun, while they each toss rounds of Normal Shot at Skeith. Shoot all of the
green shields to destroy them. Next, he'll probably try using Unforgiving Bud,
where he tosses about 10-15 floating mines at Skeith. Destroy them using the
scythe before they can really hurt you. 

His last attack, Flash of Green, looks a lot scarier than it actually is. When
he pulls this one out, Skeith will be surrounded by green lasers. Once in
place, the lasers will move first down, and then back up. When they go down,
watch closely and move slightly to the right, in between the descending lines.
When they start moving back up, move back to the left slightly, and they should
completely miss you. MAGUS is immune to stun when he's using this attack, so
just concentrate on avoiding the lasers until it's over.

Once you've stunned him a few times and manage some good whacks with the scythe
(3-5 stuns is probably enough, dependent on Haseo's level), it's Data Drain
time. Just charge up as per usual, and calmly move back and forth to avoid his
Normal Shot (you shouldn't need to dash). The problem is that he barely stops
moving long enough for you to actually hit him with a Data Drain, so watch him
carefully and let go the moment he pauses.


--MACHA (Endrance's Avatar)

Definitely the spiffiest Avatar, MACHA is an AIDA-infected Avatar that looks
like Mia from the first games dolled out in a bridal costume. With her plethora
of attacks, she's definitely a bridezilla.

-Attacks-

A. Normal Shot (small damage): Flaming discs thrown at Skeith.

B. Scratch Attack (small damage): Two-slash rush attack.

C. Bolt of Love (small damage): Multiple laser attacks. MACHA's immune to stun
while this is in effect.

D. Seductive Voice (no damage): Slows Skeith's movement if he's hit.

E. Bewitching Wind (small damage): Will knock Skeith back if he's too close
and do some damage. MACHA's immune to stun while in effect.

F. Data Drain (small to massive damage): A damage-over-time effect. Smash
buttons wildly to curb damage done to Skeith.

-Strategy-

MACHA is not an offensive powerhouse, but man is she tough, and incredibly
fast. Her rapid succession of small attacks will wear Skeith down quickly
if you're not careful. The best strategy is to take your time and just deal
with what she throws at you, the only thing rushing to stun her will do is
cause Skeith to massive amounts of health and possibly die.

She'll start by throwing her Normal Shot at you, which is a series of flaming
discs that are really easy to avoid. Depending on your play style, you can
either dash out of the way, or bravely stand your ground and move slightly
left to avoid the first set, then slightly right to avoid the second. After
that, things get sucky real quick. Her next move will probably be a Scratch
Attack, which is a rush attack in which she dashes at Skeith and slashes at
him two times. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. Unlike the previous
Avatar Battles, this one doesn't plaster helpful advice all over the screen way
before you have to do anything. The training wheels are off, so they give you a
one second warning that you need to dash, and don't announce the attack type
message at the top of the screen. Be prepared, and scoot Skeith out of the way
as quickly as The good news is that whether you successfully avoid the attack
or not, MACHA will be vulnerable to stun while her back is turned to Skeith,
so shoot the crap out of her and then get a few good swings in (don't start
celebrating yet, though, because it will take tons of stuns to take her down,
as MACHA has incredibly high defense). After that, things get even suckier.

MACHA has a really annoying attack called Bolt of Love in which she conjures
a number of sentinel-type objects that will hover agitatingly out of your
reach as they shoot laser beams at you, then move close enough to attack, one
at a time. Forget stunning her, as she's immune to it during this attack, and
focus on the sentinels. Just keep moving in one direction (dash = unnecessary).
The sentinel will start flashing, and then shoot the laser beam. If you're
moving, it will harmlessly pass behind you, and then the sentinel will move
close enough to destroy with the scythe. You can't move on to the next round
until they're all gone, so just take them out one by one.

After all of that (if she doesn't bust this little nasty trick out previous to
using Bolt of Love), she will start glowing with a white aura. Start dashing
as soon as you see this. Soon after, a very long stream of glowing white rings
will come after you, and if you get hit by it, you'll be sorry. This attack is
called Seductive Voice, and will cause Skeith to move slower than frozen 
butter, making it a thousand times more difficult to deal with her next move,
which is to immediately use her Bewitching Wind skill. Again, she is immune to
stun during this time (while she is surrounded by the swirling red rose petals)
so don't bother shooting at her, and just watch closely. She'll first throw a
few rounds of her Normal Shot at you, which is harmless enough. Directly after,
though, and with almost no warning, she'll use a Scratch Attack, which, coupled
with Bewitching Wind, is particularly nasty. Watch for her to move upwards
slightly, and the camera angle to change a little, and start dashing to avoid
it. Then, shoot her from behind when the Bewitching Wind dissipates, and kick
her butt as I'm sure you wish to do at this point.

MACHA also has Data Drain, and she is most definitely not afraid to use it. You
could be hit with it several times if the battle lasts long enough, so get your
button-mashing fingers prepared, and just deal with it as you did when TARVOS
used it.

So, once you get her to Protect Break status, I suggest you end it as quickly
as possible. If you're quick about it, you can manage to do this in 5 seconds
or so. If you miss the first opportunity, you must avoid her barrage of Normal
Shots and Cat Scratches until she stays still long enough to get a successful
Data Drain off.


--Azure Flame God

Unless you're one of the lucky ones who speaks Japanese and has played further
into the //G.U. series, you don't know much about this... evil, evil thing
other than that it is somehow connected to Tri-Edge. Perhaps it's an Avatar,
perhaps it's a chunk pure AIDA, who knows, who cares, we're just here to kick
its ass (to be fair, it tried to kick ours first). Whatever this being is, it's
big, it's mean, and it looks like a flaming blue cranked up stick-figure angel
with antlers for wings.

-Attacks

A. Normal Shot (small-medium damage): a wave of energy balls.

B. Azure Fire Ball 1 (large damage): Large blue flame attack (close range).

C. Azure Fire Ball 2 (small-medium damage): burst of small flame attacks
(long distance).

D. Azure Tiger Claws (medium damage): a series of spinning blades.

E. Azure Wild Flower (massive damage): very painful rush attack.

F. Data Drain (small to massive damage): A damage-over-time effect. Smash
buttons wildly to curb damage done to Skeith.

-Strategy-

This is The Final Confrontation, and if you aren't level 50 for this battle,
you might want to go level up a bit before going for it. You can probably
manage to take him down a few levels lower, but even at level 50, he gives
you a tough time. The Azure Flame God does not hold back - he has lots of
attacks, all of which do some hefty damage, is ridiculously fast, is tough
to stun, has a lot of defense, and will generally do a good job of wiping
the floor with Skeith. If you're a masochist, by all means, go suffer through
this fight using a non-maxed-out Skeith.

First off, you'll want to keep a fairly healthy distance between the Azure
Flame God and Skeith throughout the battle. This will give you more reaction
time, as well as preventing the first form of his Azure Fire Ball attack from
smacking the crap out of you, as it's only effective at a close range.

He'll start by tossing his Normal Shot at you, which is a line of energy balls
that come at you in a sort of wave pattern, alternating from each side. It
comes at you real fast, and the recommended course of action is to just watch
closely and slip between two of the balls as they come at you. This way, you
can still manage to get in a few much-needed shots as the onslaught drags on.
If you want to play it safe, though, you can dash out of the way in the
opposite direction from the side the attack is coming from.

Then comes the Azure Fire Ball attack I mentioned earlier. He'll start by
busting out with three large fireballs close to his body. If for some reason
you are close to him when he does so, it will hurt Skeith a lot. After that,
the fire balls divide into a bunch of little fire balls which come at you like
missiles and can be harmlessly avoided by moving forward slightly.

He may toss his Azure Tiger Claws attack at you next. With this attack, do your
best to slash like crazy at the spinning blades as they come at you, though I
will not lie, it is extremely difficult to get them all, and it's likely you'll
be hit by one or two. They occasionally will spin off the screen and then come
out of nowhere at you like boomerangs. In the grand scheme of things, though,
this is not so bad.

The Azure Wild Flower attack (aka "The Attack You Must Avoid At All Costs")
will likely follow, though the order isn't always the same. Whenever you see
the words, "Dash to Evade" pop up on the bottom of the screen, start dashing
like a maniac to avoid this attack. If you don't avoid it, it does about 300
damage to Skeith (which you really can't afford). Even more fun is that he
often does this attack several times in quick succession. Just keep on your
toes and be prepared for him to turn around and rush you again.

He also uses Data Drain, but thankfully isn't as trigger-happy about it as
MACHA was. Just deal with it by smashing buttons, dum dee dum...

When you get him stunned, dash in and slash until after many successful stuns,
you get him to Protect Break status. And here's probably where it really starts
hurting. As in all the other Avatar battles, the Azure Flame God will still
throw his Normal Shot attack at you while you're trying to Data Drain him....
in a seemingly endless succession. If you try dashing to avoid them, you could
miss the half-a-second opportunity you to get a successful Data Drain off.
On the other hand, it is a real pain avoiding those energy balls in order to
keep your Data Drain fully charged. I used the bob and weave through energy
ball waves tactic... if you can manage to focus on the waves and slip between
the energy balls while still keeping an eye on whether the Azure Flame God is
moving, I recommend it to the "dash-like-a-madman and hope you can stop in time
to get a good shot off and end this insanity" plan.

Note: You can also dash either left or right the entire time and fireballs
won't hit you. Only thing you need to watch out for is the tiger claws and
his dash attack. When he uses the circular fireball attack (the big ring one)
right when he casts it, you can dash towards him through the center of the
fireballs, attack 3 times and the fireballs will miss you, but be sure to
dash backwards after hitting him with a combo and continue dashing to the
side when you do this.

-----------------------
Phase 13 - Convert (CONVRT)
-----------------------

When you select the Convert option from the title screen, you can convert a
saved game from one of the four .hack games and use it to unlock special
features in .hack//G.U. If you use a save file from Part 1 - 3
(Infection, Mutation, and Outbreak), you'll recieve an E-Mail from Blackrose
that was meant for Kite. Also, when you fight the final boss, he will have
the same name you gave your character in the first four games. If you use
saved data from .hack//QUARENTINE, you'll unlock those and another E-Mail from
Hokuto (from .hack//ANOTHER BIRTH) to
Rena (from .hack//LEGEND OF THE TWILIGHT BRACELET).

-----------------------
Phase 14 - Doppleganger (DOPPEL)
-----------------------

NOTE: The Doppleganger ONLY appears after the Doppleganger thread appears in
the Rumor Section of the Community Forum! He will not exist before then!

What is he? 

The Doppleganger is a very rare monster that looks like a dark and twisted
version of Haseo, surrounded by red flames. Doppleganger is ALWAYS 8 levels
higher than you. 


What if I've reached the level limit(50)? 

He'll be 58. 


Where do I find him? 

It appears at random when you're in any area. Due to the extremely low chance
of it appearing, the best method is to wait in an area for a while, 10 minutes
should be enough. It appears at random when you're in any area, although you
are more likely to find him at Elegant Your Shadow.

After you're done waiting, walk around the area until you find a red arrow
right next to Haseo (like when you've got a group of monsters close-by but not
in the camera view). Follow this arrow and you'll find Doppleganger. 

You'll know it's him when the edge of the screen glows red and a creepy song
begins playing. 


How strong is he exactly? 

He has the exact same amount of health as you do, but all his stats are
notably higher and he heals often. 


He's slaughtering me! What should I do? 

Zer0 suggests this: 
First build up your morale gauge through normal fights before you encounter him
Now get a suprise attack on him and immediately use Beast Awakening and "pound
him like there is no tommorrow". If you've got decent equipment and don't do
anything wrong, he should be dead or very close to it as soon as the Awakening
wears off. Just hit him with everything you've got if he's still standing. 


Why should I even bother fighting him? 

1. Bragging rights. 
2. Beating him yeilds the key item "Own King". This item can be used in
.hack//G.U. Volume 2 to unlock Doppleganger's weapons (Twin blade and Edge
Punisher) . They are lvl 50 weapons that are as powerful as the strongest
weapons in the game, lvl 100 weapons.


-----------------------
Phase 15 - Abyss Quest (AQUEST)
-----------------------

Okay, here's the whole deal with the Abyss Quest.

It starts when there's a community forum post talking about a strange treasure
chest at:

Choosing Superior Offerings (level 11 area with no monsters except at the end)

Just go kick the box, and it'll explode. This strange NPC will come walking out
and go on a whole thing about mark of the offering, blah blah. I forgot the
exact text, so feel free to read.

After you do this, you'll notice another new forum post talking about a
"Confusing Event" that a player ran into. you'll have a chance to reply. Go
ahead and pick the "give me more details" post. Log into The World and come
back out (giving them "ample time" to reply). You'll see a whole string of
replies, including another set of keywords:

Heartless Starting Pilgrim

The dungeon design is the same, no monsters except at the end. Like the last
dungeon, I wiped the floor with them at level 50. The NPC goes rambling on
again and takes off.

Once this is done, you'll notice yet -another- forum post, talking about
"an irritating mob" and you'll have a chance to reply to this one as well.
Ask about the NPC, then log in and out of The World to make them reply.
The reply will give you yet another set of keywords:

Entwined Joyous Venom Fang

Guess what? Same dungeon design! Once again, at level 50, the mob at the end
was nothing but a hole in the ground after my broadsword got done with them.
Being "The Terror of Death" feels good!

Once you beat this mob, you'll get an email from CCCorp telling you that a new
Abyss Quest by the name of "Lord of the Dead" has been added to the quest shop
in Mac Anu. This is the big showdown!

The dungeon they send you to is level 47, and I'm gonna tell you that it took
more than 5 hits to kill some of the mobs in here at level 50. Meaning if
you're not maxed out in level, I would recommend taking as much healing junk
with you as possible...and leave your sanity at @HOME (har), because this is
gonna be a whopper of a boss.

I wont spoil the boss himself, because you gotta see this guy. You may need
new pants after seeing him. ;)
