    1. Introduction
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    This is a FAQ for the videogame PHANTASY STAR ONLINE EPISODE I & II. If you
    have any questions, comments, corrections, information, etc., regarding my FAQ,
    please feel free to email me at yellowaznboy@yahoo.com. I will read and respond
    to every letter if I have the time.  Remember to put something about PSO in the
    subject so that I don’t delete it by mistake.
    
    I have decided to only allow my current/future FAQs to be used on GameFAQs.com,
    IGN.com, and Neoseeker.com.  Keeping my FAQ versions updated is annoying enough
    as it is, I don't like it when my FAQs aren't updated if I don't do it
    personally. Therefore, do not ask me if you can use my FAQ for your website.

    2. Hunter's Guild Quests
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Aside from the main adventure, you can also take on several quests by going to
    the Hunter's Guild and selecting a proposition. These quests are not necessary
    to progress in the game, but most of them advance the already light storyline. 
    Also, these quests sometimes yield lots of Meseta, and, occasionally, subquests
    offer item rewards for your efforts.
    
    There are three quests to begin with, and more are unlocked by completing the
    main adventure (Forest-Ruins), as well as completing the quests that are
    available. Quests are divided into Tiers, which, when all the quests in one
    Tier are completed, unlock more Tiers with even more quests to play.
    
    =================
    Quest Walkthrough
    =================
    
    Magnitude of Metal
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: None
    NPC Partner: Elenor (RAcaseal)
    Reward: 500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Find Elenor and speak with her. Answer "I'm looking for it" and she will
    accompany you to search for the Mag. Return to the very start of the area to
    find the Mag (near the Transporter).
    
    Notes: None
    
    Claiming a Stake
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: None
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: 700 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: To begin the quest, find Racton near a downed spacecraft. After a brief
    conversation, you are prompted to find the Capsules scattered throughout Forest
    1. A capsule is located at the beginning of the area (near the Transporter).
    Capsule 2 and 3 are located northwest and northeast of the map, respectively.
    Return to Racton after collecting all of the capsules to end the quest.
    
    Notes: This is one of the quests in which an NPC has a WEAPONS EMBLEM for you.
    
    Battle Training
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: None
    NPC Partner: Kireek (HUcast)
    Reward: 500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Speak with Kireek on Pioneer 2, and then speak with your client. Head
    down to Forest 1 and make your way towards the upper right corner of the map by
    going clockwise. Once you find Ash, pick up the Data Disk in the same room and
    be prepared to fight a couple of wolves. Dispatch them and speak with Ash, then
    Kireek, to complete the quest.
    
    Notes: None
    
    Fake In Yellow
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1 Quests
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: 800 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Pipe down to Forest 1, where you will encounter a lone Rappy. Speak with
    it, and it will run away. Make your way towards the upper left corner of the
    map by going clockwise. You will encounter the lone Rappy again in a room full
    of Rappies. Dispatch these Rappies before attempting to talk to the lone Rappy.
    Finally, meet with this lone Rappy once more and speak to it several times to
    discover that it really isn't a Rappy. Once you're done, pipe back up and
    collect your money.
    
    Notes: This is the ideal place to find the rare counterparts of the normal
    Rappy in Episode I, by either playing through the quest repeatedly, or using
    the Telepipe Trick. You can also speak with Elenor (whom you met in Magnitude
    of Metal), although nothing happens. Additionally, to unlock the GBA mini-game
    Chao, return to Forest 1 after the finishing the quest (but before collecting
    your Meseta), where you will see a bunch of Rappies. There is a Chao hiding in
    the green shrubs (in the direction the Rappies are facing). Press the Action
    button to see a cutscene, and some cool music begins. Afterward, return to
    Pioneer 2, where you will see a machine that enables you to download the Chao
    mini-game for your GBA.
    
    Journalistic Pursuit
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1
    NPC Partner: Nol (HUnewearl)
    Reward: 1200 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Head down to Forest 1, and make your way to the red Transporter (by going
    clockwise), which will transport you to Forest 2. In F2, you need to find and
    examine the Terminal (by going counter-clockwise north of your starting
    position). The bridge is broken, so you need to head southwest a bit to
    activate the switch, which fixes the bridge. Return to the Terminal, which ends
    the quest.
    
    Notes: None
    
    Gran Squall
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1
    NPC Partner: Bernie (RAmar)
    Reward: 1000 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: In Forest 1, make your way to the lower right corner of the map, where
    you'll find Bernie. Answer "Yes" to his question, and he will join up (Note:
    Bernie needs to be in your party to unlock a door). Now, head to the Forest 2
    Transporter (by going clockwise), located at the upper left corner of the map.
    In Forest 2, you need to find a girl at the Central Dome. To do so, take the
    green Warp, and fight your way to the injured girl to end the quest.
    
    Notes: This is one of the quests in which an NPC has a WEAPONS EMBLEM for you.
    
    Native Research
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: 2500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: This quest requires you to kill a certain type of enemy within the
    allotted time. This quest goes through Forest 1 and 2, so you need to move
    quickly. After killing the enemies in each room, a message will pop up, telling
    you that you have collected the data for that enemy type. There are five types
    of enemies that you must kill, most of which are located in Forest 2.
    
    Notes: None
    
    Forest of Sorrow
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, Native Research
    NPC Partner: Alicia (FOmarl)
    Reward: 1500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Head through the door that requires a blue switch, and fight your way to
    the red Transporter. In Forest 2, head south (on the map) one room to find a
    Hildebear (Hildelt) baby in the corner. Speak to it, and it runs away. Fight
    your way counter-clockwise to the room at the lower right of the map. Fight off
    the enemies in that room before attempting to talk to the baby. Answer Alicia
    with either response* to end the quest.
    
    Notes: This is an ideal place to find the rare counterpart of the Hildebear
    (Hildelt), since there are tons of them in this quest. *[See the Hildebear Baby
    Sidequest for more information.]
    
    The Lost Bride
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Caves
    NPC Partner: Cicil (FOmarl)
    Reward: 2500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Your client (and partner) will follow you around in an attempt to lose
    weight. Because of this, the quest will end if she eats too many 'Mates.
    Therefore, you need to heal her with spells (Resta) when she is hurt. To
    complete the quest, head to the west of the map (by first going south, and then
    west), where you will find the Cave 2 Transporter. In Cave 2, head left and
    then south (on the map), where the quest will end in the "Waterfall" room.
    
    Notes: This is one of the quests in which an NPC has a WEAPONS EMBLEM for you.
    
    The Value of Money
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Caves
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: 300 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: This entire quest takes place on Pioneer 2. Talk to the NPC in the City
    Shops. Answer "No, I don't understand" and “Because you're a fool" to both of
    his questions, and return to your client. After speaking to her, chat with the
    NPC in the City Shops one more time to finish the quest.
    
    Notes: This is one of the quests in which an NPC has a WEAPONS EMBLEM for you.
    
    Secret Delivery
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Caves
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: 4500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: You need to deliver a Package to an NPC (Elenor) in Cave 2 within the
    allotted time. Cave 1 should not be a problem; you can tell if you're on the
    right track if you pass by your old friend, Bernie. The Transporter to Cave 2
    is directly west (on the map) from your starting point. In Cave 2, you need to
    activate two switches (blue and purple), both located near the lower left of
    the map. You need not speak with any of the Androids in this quest except for
    Elenor. Once the switches are activated, retrace your steps north, and take the
    green Warp to find Elenor. Mission accomplished.
    
    Notes: A NPC in this quest kicks off a subquest if you answer "!!" to both of
    his questions. [See “Sidequests” section for more information]
    
    Grave's Butler
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Caves
    NPC Partner: Matha (FOmarl)
    Reward: 3500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: You will notice Messages on the ground as you run through Cave 1 and 2.
    You can ignore all of them except the last Message in the "Waterfall" room. The
    Cave 2 Transporter is located near the bottom right of the map, which requires
    you to take the green Warp. In Cave 2, just make your way to the Message
    located northwest from the starting point.
    
    Notes: None
    
    Addicting Food
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Caves
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: 1500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 2/3
    
    Tips: This is a fairly difficult quest, because enemies come in large waves,
    and ends in Cave 3. Cave 1's map is the same as that of Grave's Butler's (head
    south, then east). Cave 2's map is the same as that of Secret Delivery's (head
    west, then south). To end the quest, find the Cake girls by going directly
    north and then east. When you find them, speak to the Cake girl behind the
    shop, and select either "Cake."
    
    Notes: This is an ideal place to find the rare counterpart of the Pofuilly
    Slime in Episode I. There are two in the same room, which can be split into a
    total of 8. Do the Telepipe Trick here.
    
    Waterfall Tears
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Lost Bride, Secret Delivery, Grave's Butler, Addicting Food
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: 1800 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Various NPCs will attempt to kill you in this quest. Just make your way
    to the "Waterfall" room to end this quest.
    
    Notes: This is THE ideal place to find the rare counterpart of the Lily in
    Episode I. In Cave 2, there is a room in which 5 Lilies spawn. Walking near the
    locked door in the same room causes 4 more Lilies to spawn, making that a total
    of 9 lilies in one room. Do the Telepipe Trick here! Also, this may be the
    first time you fight Kireek for his SOUL EATER (found in Cave 2, after speaking
    with Anna in the "Waterfall" room).
    
    Black Paper
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Lost Bride, Secret Delivery, Grave's Butler, Addicting Food,
    Waterfall Tears
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: 2000 Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Another quest that spans all of Caves. Various NPCs will attempt to kill
    you in this quest. Generally, after defeating an NPC, they will say something
    funny, like "I'm screwed." Anyway, just make you way to Cave 3, where you will
    find Kroe by heading north into the room that looks like a "magnet," and then
    heading east.
    
    Notes: This may be the second time you fight Kireek for his SOUL EATER (found
    in Cave 1)
    
    Letter from Lionel
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Mines
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: ??? Meseta
    Difficulty: 3/3
    
    Tips: You need to find all of Lionel’s parts. In Forest 2, look for his head by
    taking the green Warp near the Central Dome (look behind you). On the way
    there, you will find a Ranger who has found something (remember how he looks).
    In the Central Dome, you will encounter a Hildebear (or Hildelt). You must
    defeat him in order to unlock the door near the “bridge” room. There, you will
    encounter another ‘bear (or ‘delt); kill it to get Lionel’s right arm. Anyway,
    once you have Lionel’s head, check the Quest Board. When Lionel asks a
    question, say that you will look for the rest of his body parts. After that 
    conversation, find his right leg in Forest 1, his left leg in Cave 2. Check 
    the 
    Quest board again and return to Pioneer 2, where you’ll get the last of 
    Lionel’s 
    body parts from the Ranger standing outside of the Hunter’s Guild room.
    
    Notes: Right Leg: F1, Head: F2, Right Arm: F2, Left Leg: C2, Left Arm: P2
    
    Soul of a Blacksmith
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Lost Bride, Secret Delivery, Grave's Butler, Addicting Food
    NPC Partner: None
    Reward: God Hand, Suppressed Gun, or Technical Crozier
    Difficulty: 3/3
    
    Tips: Collect three types of Minerals for the Blacksmith. Forest 1 has two
    Minowites (only need one), and Forest 2 has the Dragon Fang (defeat Dragon
    Boss). Caves has three different types of Minerals, but you only need one. Cave
    1 has a red Mineral, Cave 2 has a green Mineral, and Cave 3 has a blue Mineral.
    However, Cave 3 has the most lucrative Mineral.
    
    Notes: To get one of the rewards, you must play this quest in Ultimate and
    retrieve the blue Mineral from Cave 3. Also note that the enemies here come in
    large numbers, almost as if you were playing in an online quest (excellent
    place to level up).
    
    Knowing One's Heart
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Mines
    NPC Partner: Elly (FOnewearl)
    Reward: 3500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 2/3
    
    Tips: Fight your way to the room located across the map to the right, ignoring
    any Warps. The room before the quest ends is a "Dark" room. Keep your NPC alive
    or else the quest ends.
    
    Notes: None
    
    Dr. Osto's Research
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Mines
    NPC Partner: Sue (HUnewearl)
    Reward: 5500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 2/3
    
    Tips: Head down to fight an NPC (the same one you fought in a previous quest).
    After you defeat him, head down, then left to find Sue. Speak with her, and she
    will join you. Fight your way across the map to a room that has a Computer.
    Check the Computer, which ends the quest.
    
    Notes: Dr. Montague can be found loitering in Pioneer 2 in this quest.
    
    The Unsealed Door
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Mines, Secret Delivery, Dr. Osto's Research
    NPC Partner: Mome (RAmar)
    Reward: 5500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 3/3
    
    Tips: Mome is incredibly stupid, because he doesn't heal himself sometimes. Put
    Resta on you Action Bar and be prepared to heal him when he is injured. This
    quest begins in Mine 2, and you must head back to Mine 1, where you will find a
    Transporter to the Underground Channel; De Rol Le (or Da Ral Lie) must be
    defeated. Luckily, Mome pretends to be dead, so you can concentrate on killing
    the boss instead of healing your partner (in the Dreamcast version, Mome stuck
    around to fight alongside with you, but because he died so easily, Sonic Team
    took him out of the battle in this version).
    
    Notes: Dr. Montague can be found loitering in Pioneer 2 in this quest.
    
    Retired Hunter
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Ruins
    NPC Partner: Donoph (HUmar)
    Reward: ??? Meseta
    Difficulty: 2/3
    
    Tips: Another timed quest; however, all you have to do is defeat 100 enemies.
    How hard can it be? Just make your way around the area, although you need to
    backtrack several times. By the time you reach the “Hallway,” you should have
    defeated enemies in about 8-9 rooms.
    
    Notes: To further the storyline, when Donoph speaks with you at the beginning
    of the quest, respond “!!.” After defeating the 100 enemies, return to P2, and
    speak with Alicia (FOmarl). You will hear a chime, which opens up F2. (Nothing
    special, though). Also, this can only be done on Ultimate (maybe Very Hard)
    mode. [See the Donoph Baz (DB) “The Retired Hunter” Subplot for more
    information]
    
    Doc's Secret Plan
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Ruins, Secret Delivery
    NPC Partner: Elenor (RAcaseal)
    Reward: 9000 Meseta
    Difficulty: 3/3
    
    Tips: To complete this quest, you must escort Elenor around Ruins 1, so she can
    test out her weapon. The first Test Area is just two rooms into Ruins 1.
    Dispatch all the enemies that appear to get a message that details your
    accomplishment. Continue to Test Area 2 and 3, and do the same. Return to P2
    (Pioneer 2) and collect your money.
    
    Notes: After completing this quest, Dr. Montague promises to forge an item for
    you if you bring him the right materials. [see “Forging Items” section for more
    information]
    
    Seek My Master
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Ruins
    NPC Partner: Shino (RAcaseal)
    Reward: 6000 Meseta
    Difficulty: 3/3
    
    Tips: Fight through Ruins 1 by going counter-clockwise. In Ruins 2, head right
    on the map two rooms. Then head up to find a Quest Item: Kamui. Continue a bit
    more to find another Quest Item: Yasha. The next big room holds the last Quest
    Item you collect, the Sange. Defeat all of the enemies in the room, and speak
    to the NPC (Zoke) to complete the quest.
    
    Notes: The NPC located near the Check Room on Pioneer 2 will convert the real
    Agito (1975) into an Orotiagito.
    
    From the Depths
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Ruins, Doc’s Secret Plan
    NPC Partner: Ash (HUmar)
    Reward: 3500 Meseta
    Difficulty: 3/3
    
    Tips: From the Depths is a quest full of switch puzzles. Halfway into Ruins 2,
    you will meet a FOmarl NPC, who, after chatting with her a bit, attacks you. At
    the same time, a wave of enemies spawn. The cool thing is the enemies can take
    out the FOmarl for you. Afterwards, continue on to the Transporter (located to
    the north on the map). In Ruins 3, you will meet up with an old friend, Ash,
    who will accompany you for the rest of the quest. To end the quest, you must
    check the terminal on the raised platform in the middle of the room that looks
    like a "Tic-Tac-Toe" board. In that room, take the northeast passage to find a
    warp to a room with a blue switch. After activating the blue switch, head back
    to the "Tic-Tac-Toe" room and head to southeast passage. Continue to the end to
    find a green switch. Return to the "Tic-Tac-Toe" room and head to the southwest
    passage to find a warp that takes you to a "Dark" room with a red switch. With
    the red and blue switch activated, take the northwest passage in the
    "Tic-Tac-Toe" room to find another warp that takes you to the raised platform.
    Check the computer, and Ash will leave you. Pipe back to P2 and collect your
    money.
    
    Notes: This may be the last time you fight Kireek for his SOUL EATER (located
    in Ruins 2, after Ash leaves your party).
    
    Soul of Steel
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Tier 1, unlock Ruins, Doc’s Secret Plan, Unsealed Door
    NPC Partner: Elenor (RAcaseal), Dr. Montague (FOnewm)
    Reward: 3000 Meseta
    Difficulty: 3/3
    
    Tips: You need to make your way through Mines and into Ruins. During the Mines
    scenario, you will encounter several NPCs who will attempt to kill you. There
    will also be a bit of mini-games (mostly follow-the-leader and
    avoid-being-seen). Just listen to your NPC partners and this part shouldn’t be
    a problem. When a timed event occurs, you need to head down to Ruins and press
    the switch on a raised platform. One tip is that you need to destroy the white
    rock in the “Tic-Tac-Toe” room to be able to make the timed switch.  After the
    countdown ends, you must find Ult. After several tries, she will appear in a
    long corridor. Find her one last time. After a cutscene, you will be at the
    Medical Center. Go to the Hunter's Guild room, and speak with the woman walking
    around. Read the letter she gives you to end the quest.
    
    Notes: To get the real (long) ending, you must do several other quests before
    playing this one. Tell Sue your name in “Dr. Osto’s Research.” Find Bernie in
    “Unsealed Door,” then speak to Sue in that same quest. Return to Bernie and
    tell him what Sue told you. In “Waterfall Tears,” find Sue and ask about Black
    Paper. Next, find and speak with Bernie. In “Black Paper,” you can question Sue
    on P2. After that, speak with Bernie in Caves. Then play and complete "Doc's
    Secret Plan." Once you have completed this sidequest, play “Soul of Steel,”
    making sure that the Mag Cell evolves 3 times in Mines, first at the computer
    terminal, then after the screen shakes (find Dr. Montague and Elenor using your
    Area Map), and finally, after dispatching the WORKS crew. After finding Ult in
    Ruins 3, you need to respond “Rescue Elenor,” and say “No” 3 times to Dr.
    Montague. After gaining control of your character again, talk to the woman and
    leave. A cutscene will ensue. Collect your reward afterwards. Apparently, if
    you answered "No" three times and you reload "Soul of Steel" again, Elenor will
    be waiting for you in Forest, where you can find out some more information.
    Note: normally when you complete a quest for the first time, it becomes
    unavailable until you beat all of the other quests. However, if you do this
    extra sidequest within Soul of Steel successfully, the quest will be available
    with new content (you also get rewarded, again).

    3. Sidequests
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Within several quests are NPCs that initiate subquests.  Some of these extra
    quests yield Rare Weapons if the objectives are completed.  In addition, some
    of these sidequests can only be done once per difficulty to get a Rare, but
    that enables you to get up to four Rare weapons for each subquest.  Of course
    you could always make another character and have him or her complete these
    objectives to get even more Rares.
    
    Quick Notes:
    -Only one Rare per difficulty
    -Complete the quest to save NPC conversations
    -Complete all quests to replay all quests

    Soul Eater Quest
    ================
    
    Walkthrough
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    To get the SOUL EATER from your “friend,” Kireek, you must speak to various
    NPCs within several Hunter’s Guild quests.  Afterward, you actually fight
    Kireek several times before he coughs up the SOUL EATER.
    
    To begin this sidequest, you need to play the “Dr. Osto’s Research” quest,
    where you meet up Sue.  After you finish the quest, Sue asks for you name. 
    Reply “No. Sorry...” and finish the quest.  Next, find Sue in “Unsealed Door”
    and complete that quest.  If you spoke with Sue, Kireek should be waiting for
    you in “Waterfall Tears,” located in Cave 2 after speaking with the NPC in that
    quest, Anna.  Defeat Kireek and complete the quest.  Next, you will find Kireek
    in “Black Paper,” located in a “Dark” room in Cave 1.  Defeat him a second
    time, and complete the quest.  Finally, in “From the Depths,” you will find
    Kireek in Ruins 2.  However, you must complete all of your objectives for this
    quest before he appears.  In other words, after Ash leaves your party, Kireek
    will appear in Ruins 2 to fight you one last time.  Defeat him, and the SOUL
    EATER is yours!

    Soul Eater Walkthru Final
    copyright 2002 Christopher Powell
    harlquin@core.com
    
    Welcome to the updated Soul Eater Walkthru. I wrote this guide because all of
    the other guides I've seen are incorrect in some way or another and most of
    them require you to complete every offline quest to get it. As you'll soon
    discover, you don't. This is the final version of this walkthru, use it in good
    health.
    
    
    How to get a Soul Eater
    
    Getting the Soul Eater requires you to complete a number of offline quests, but
    not all of them. Two beneficial side effects of this are that you'll level up a
    bit and, if you follow the steps in order, you'll also unlock Dr Montague so
    he'll convert enemy parts for you. You'll get 2 shots at him in this guide.
    Now, to get down to it.
    
    1: Complete Forest, Caves and Mines offline.
    
    2: Complete the following quests:
    -Battle Training
    -Claiming a Stake
    -Magnitude of Metal
    -Addicting Food
    -The Lost Bride
    -Secret Delivery
    -The Graves Butler
    -Doc's Secret Plan
    
    Doing the above should have unlocked Waterfall Tears. Check to make sure it's
    on the list. When you finished Doc's Secret Plan, you unlocked Dr Montague as
    well.
    
    3: Do Dr Osto's Research. At the end of the quest, Sue will ask your name. DO
    NOT tell her. After not telling her your name, enter the pipe and finish the
    quest. This will unlock Unsealed Door.
    Note:Take any enemy part to Dr Montague and he will convert it for you. If you
    want to do more than one, just cancel the job and restart the quest to change
    another part.
    
    4: Do Unsealed Door. Along the way, you'll see Sue. Talk to her and finish the
    quest. This should have unlocked From the Depths. Check the list to make sure
    and continue.
    Note:Take any enemy part to Dr Montague and he will convert it for you. If you
    want to do more than one, just cancel the job and restart the quest to change
    another part.
    
    5: Do Waterfall Tears. You'll fight Anna twice during the quest. After you whup
    her the second time, DO NOT go into the telepipe. Look at your map. There
    should be a green arrow just north of you. That's Kireek. Follow your map to
    get to him. After a short cutscene, he'll try to kill you. It's imperative that
    he does not succeed. After you slap him around a bit, he'll run away. Pipe up
    and finish the quest. This will unlock Black Paper.
    
    6: Do Black Paper. In Caves 1, check your map. There should be a green arrow on
    it to the east of the start. That's Kireek again. He still wants to kill you.
    Follow the map and take him on again. He'll run away again. Finish the quest.
    
    7: Do From the Depths. Ash will join you in Ruins 3. After you get the Monument
    Data, Ash will go off to look for survivors. Backtrack to Ruins 2. Check your
    map. The two arrows are Ash and Kireek. Wind your way back to their location.
    You'll notice Ash lying unconscious on the ground. Big surprise. Kireek is
    pretty insane this time, it's for keeps. If you manage to survive, you'll be
    rewarded with the Soul Eater.
    
    Notes:
    -Make sure you have less than 30 items in your inventory when Kireek dies or
    else you won't get the Soul Eater.
    -Don't stand near Kireek when you cast Resta or you will heal him. This goes
    for Shifta/Deband as well.
    -Kireek uses a Soul Banish in hard mode and up, but you can't get it from him.
    You still get the Soul Eater. This ruins the replay value of this side quest,
    IMHO.

    Akiko’s Frying Pan Quest
    ========================
    
    Walkthrough
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    To get AKIKO’S FRYING PAN, you must collect several WEAPONS EMBLEMS from the
    Weapons group.  There are 5 EMBLEMS to collect, each located in a different
    Hunter's Guild quest.
    
    To begin the quest, play “Secret Delivery” and find an NPC walking around in
    orange and blue.  Reply “!!” to both of his questions to receive the first
    WEAPONS EMBLEM.  Complete the quest and look for the rest.  The other four
    Weapons members are in the following quests: “Claiming a Stake,” “The Lost
    Bride,” “Gran Squall,” and “The Value of Money.”  Collect all of the EMBLEMS,
    remembering to complete each quest, and return to the man who gave you the
    first one.  Speak with him, and he should introduce you to the leader.  Speak
    with the woman near the Check Room to receive AKIKO’S FRYING PAN.
    
    Fastest Way to Complete
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    There really is no fast way to complete, because you must finish all of the
    Hunter’s Guild quest before you are allowed to play any of them again. 
    Therefore, speak to the man in “Secret Delivery” as soon as you can, preferably
    before you complete any of the quests that have a Weapons member.
    
    Have Caves unlocked and play the following quests in order:
    -All of Tier 1
    -Secret Delivery (speak to member, reply "!!" twice)
    -Gran Squall (speak to member)
    -Lost Bride (speak to member, reply "Enthusiasm")
    -The Value of Money (speak to member)
    -All of Tier 2, 3, 4, and 5

    Soul of a Blacksmith Quest
    ==========================
    
    Walkthrough
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    This is probably the most difficult quest to obtain a Rare, simply because you
    can only receive a Rare if you play this quest in Ultimate mode. Once you have
    this quest in Ultimate, play through the quest, collecting the first two
    materials in Forest 1 and 2.  Once you have the first two materials the
    Blacksmith wants, you have an option as to what the last material will be. 
    Each Cave area has a material, but only Cave 3’s blue material is worth a Rare
    item.  In other words, to get the Rare, you need to trek all the way to Cave 3
    and collect the material there.  All other material give you crap items.  Once
    you have three materials (one from F1, one from F2, and one from Caves), return
    to your client, where you are prompted to select from three choices: blade,
    gun, or staff.  Selecting “blade” gets you GOD HAND.  Selecting “gun” gets you
    SUPPRESSED GUN.  Selecting “staff” gets you TECHNICAL CROZIER.  Because you are
    only allowed to get a Rare once per difficulty, you can only attempt this quest
    for a Rare item once per character.  To get more than one Rare, you would have
    to create another character, and do the same thing.
    
    Quick Notes:
    -Ultimate mode only
    -One Rare per character
    
    Fastest Way to Complete

    Walkthrough
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    This quest begins if you tell Sue your name in "Dr. Osto's Research."  Then,
    you get to see a bunch of conversations spanning many quests.  In the end,
    however, you get nothing.
    
    The quests include: "Unsealed Door," "Waterfall Tears," "Black Paper," "Doc's
    Secret Plan," and "Seek My Master."  Note that you can interrogate Sue in
    "Waterfall Tears" and "Black Paper."  If you do, remember to speak with her
    until she disappears to save the conversation.

    Hildebear Baby Quest
    ====================
    
    Walkthrough
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    This quest is a mystery.  In "Forest of Sorrow," when you encounter the
    Hildebear Baby for the second time, your NPC partner, Alicia, asks you a
    question.  If you respond with the second answer and speak with the Hidlebear
    Baby, it will run back to the first room in which you encountered it.  Find it
    again and speak with it.  Afterwards, you can find a Moon Atomizer in the
    shrubs next to the Hildebear Baby.  That's where the mystery begins, as no one
    seems to know what to do after that (unless, of course, that concludes the
    sidequest).

    Walkthrough

    To see a different ending (which provides more information on the scenario),
    you must complete the Sue and Bernie sidequest before playing the “Soul of

    times. [see Soul of Steel quest under “Quest Walkthrough” for more information]

    Donoph Baz (DB) “The Retired Hunter” Subplot
    ============================================
    
    Walkthrough
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Some interesting information is revealed in the “Retired Hunter” quest.  After
    completing the quest, you can enter a new area to access even more information
    if you have completed several other quests.  If you speak with Alicia in the
    “Retired Hunter” quest after you have completed “Native Research” and “Forest
    of Sorrow,” you can unlock Forest 2 when Donoph “leaves” your party
    
    Although you seem to receive nothing for completing this subplot, there may be
    something more to it.  Perhaps, there is a connection between this sidequest
    and the Hildebear Baby quest, since Alicia Baz (!) makes an appearance in
    “Native Research” and “Forest of Sorrow.”  You do receive a Moon Atomizer for
    completing the Hildebear Baby quest; perhaps, you can use it here.  This is
    just speculation, so don’t take my word for it.
    
    There also seems to be another mystery.  Bernie makes an appearence in the
    "Retired Hunter," but the conditions for seeing him are unclear.  If Bernie
    does make an appearence, there will also be an alternate ending.

    Gallon's Treachery
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Platform: GC, X-Box
    NPC Partner: None
    Number of Players: 2-4
    Reward: Meseta
    Difficulty: 3/3
    
    Tips: This is a very fun quest, but can be somewhat frustrating.  You start 
    off in Cave 3, where you must defeat a few enemies to unlock a door.  Activate 
    the switch in this room and return to the previous room.  The first event 
    begins when you step on a floor switch, at which point flames appear behind 
    you.  Simply run to the warp at the end of the area to successfully complete 
    this event.  Now, you must unlock the Judgment Door by completing 3 events in 
    the "Hot-Lava Room," the "Jet Black Room," and the "Optical Illusion Room."
    
    -Hot-Lava Room: This time, you must destroy impediments in your way.  It is 
    wise to you use Mechgun-types here.  Enemies spawn in the final room, but 
    focus on destroying the rock.  A floor switch is revealed after destroying the 
    final rock.  Stand on it to return to the main room.
    
    -Optical Illusion Room:  All you have to do is defeat all of the enemies.  The 
    catch is that you must stay on screen, as the camera pans to the left and 
    right.
    
    -Jet Black Room:  The room is completely dark and the map has been removed 
    during this portion of the quest.  The best strategy is to stay next to the 
    wall of the rooms.  Find the two floor switches to open the door.  In this 
    room, find two floor switches to open up the door, but be wary of the Smashers 
    and confuse traps.  The final room is a big fence maze.  Again, find your way 
    to door, activating the four floor switches along the way.  Find the computer 
    terminal and select "Deactivate the seal."
    
    -When you return to the main room, Gallon will direct you to several floor 
    switches which will unlock the Judgment Door.  Stand on them to reveal more 
    floor switches that warp you to Ruins 2.  The first event is not terribly 
    difficult.  Simply make your way to other end of the area.  Warning: in this 
    area, spirits periodically appear.  When they do, do not move until they 
    disappear.  If you are caught, you will warp back to your last "check point."  
    Since this part is timed, try not to get caught at all.  At the end, you find 
    a Shiva Stone.  Now, you must return the stone to Gallon.  In this event, a 
    single spirit chases your party.  There's one switch you must activate to 
    unlock a door.  Too bad there are enemies to contend with along with this 
    spirit.  Watch out for the confuse traps in this room.  The third event is 
    similar to past events.  Make your way to the end of the area, making sure the 
    flame behind you doesn't catch you.  The final event proposes a moral 
    dilemma.  If any of your party members were caught by the flames or spirits, 
    they will be imprisoned in a poisonous room (Note: to stop the poison, stand 
    on one of the switches and attack the rock).  The members that successfully 
    completed these events are given an option: Sacrifice the Shiva Stone to save 
    your party members or keep the Shiva Stone.  Sacrificing the Shiva Stone 
    yields a Fragment of Friendship Quest item.  Keeping the Shiva Stone will 
    return you to Pioneer 2.  Either way, the quest ends here.
    
    Notes: Second player is given a Jukebox, which can be accessed from the Quest 
    Board.  If you complete all events successfully with all party members, find a 
    man on Pioneer 2 to transform the Shiva Stone into a Rakonia Stone.  [See the 
    Rappy's Holiday online quest for more information.]

    Tips: Work together with another player to complete this quest.  You and your 
    partner are separated by a laser fence.  When you clear the wave of enemies, 
    activate each switch simultaneously to advance.  Since you only have 15 
    minutes, you need to communicate accordingly.
    
    Notes: To get a Candy with an inscription of your partner's Section ID, you 
    cannot use the light switch at the very beginning.  Complete the quest as 
    usual.

    Reward: Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: This quest takes place in the Jungle area.  Find the Naru sisters to get 
    one Cake for each person in the team (so up to 4 per try).  There is also a 
    hidden room with a bunch of NPC Rappies.  Talk to the lone Rappy to the left 
    and answer his question correctly (solution = 25 Rappies) to receive a Lemon 
    Cake.
    
    Notes: Each player gets a unique Cake depending on his or her Section ID or 
    Guild Card number. If you give 8 different cakes (trade with other players) to 
    a hidden Rappy in the quest, you will receive a Jack-o-Lantern.  Open it up to 
    get a random Mag Cell.  One Jack-o-Lantern per character.
    
    If you want a specific Mag Cell, take your Jack-o-Lantern offline.  Start a 
    game and open up the Jack-o-Lantern.  If you don't get the Mag Cell that you 
    are after, reset the game and try again.  If you get the Mag Cell that you 
    want, save and quit.

    Platform: GC, X-Box
    NPC Partner: None
    Number of Players: 1-4
    Reward: Meseta
    Difficulty: N/A
    
    Tips: As the name implies, this is a shop of sorts.  The pink door that is 
    usually locked is now open.  Speak with the NPC there to transport to Gallon's 
    Shop, where you can purchase various things and play some minigames to earn 
    Gallon Points.  You can also find a Key Item on the ground that will enable 
    you play the minigame Puyo Pop on your Gameboy Advance.
    
    -Buy Music Disks: You can purchase Music Disk #1, #2, #3, #6, and #7 for 
    10,000 Meseta or 30 Gallon Points.
    
    -Wrap Presents: You can wrap almost any item in the game for 10,000 Meseta or 
    15 Gallon Points.  You can get even more wrapping paper choices by playing the 
    Pioneer Christmas quest.  Each player gets one of eight wrapping paper/ribbon 
    combinations.  Trade with other players to get all 8 colors.  Then talk to the 
    NPC in the Gallon's Shop quest and give him each colored present in order to 
    save that color for future wrapping.  [see the Pioneer Christmas quest for 
    more information]
    
    -Button-mashing minigame: tap the A-button as fast as you can to earn Gallon 
    Points.
    
    -Check Guild Card amount: you can check the number of Guild Cards you have on 
    the current memory card.  The more you have, the more Gallon Points you get.
    
    -Roulette minigame: you can use the Lucky Coins that get from the Phantasmal 
    World quests to play a Roulette minigame.  Land on a character for a prize, 
    ranging from materials to nine-star rares (with percents) and more.
    
    In addition, you can find a hidden NPC named HOPKINS on Pioneer 2 that will 
    take Photon Drops in exchange for various services: trade for items; add 
    elements to S-RANKS; add percents to non-S-RANK weapons.
    
    -Adding S-RANK Elements: speak with Hopkins with Photon Drops in your Item 
    Pack.  Elements are ranked A, B, and C and cost 50, 40, and 30 Photon Drops, 
    respectively.  A Elements: Arrest, Demon, Hell, Jellen, and Zalure.  B 
    Elements: Beserk, Chaos, Geist, Kings, and Spirit.  C Elements: Blizzard, 
    Burning, HP Revival, Tempest, and TP Revival.
    
    -Adding percents: speak with Hopkins with Photon Drops or, if you have them, 
    Photon Spheres, in your Item Pack.  20 Photon Drops add 5% and 1 Photon Sphere 
    adds 30% to any attribute (except Hit) of your choice, up to 100% for any 
    weapon.  3 attributes is the max.
    
    Notes: For information on exchanging Photon Drops for items, see the Photon

    Seat of the Heart
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Platform: GC, X-Box
    Prerequisites: Unlock Seabed offline
    NPC Partner: Elly or Kireek
    Number of Players: 1
    Reward: Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Once you unlock Seabed offline, you can access Seat of the Heart for 
    that difficulty.  This quest has two sections.  Upon completion of the first 
    section, you can save your data and return here at any time, even if you quit 
    the quest.  During the quest, you are asked a series of questions.  Unless you 
    plan on getting the RAGOL RING, the responses you pick are irrelevant.
    
    You start off in Temple Beta and follow the story to VR Spaceship Beta.  
    Defeating the Gol Dragon ends the first section, so you can save your progress 
    and return to the story at a later time if you decide to do so.
    
    The second section starts off on the Central Control walkway that usually 
    leads up to the Gal Gryphon boss fight.  Here, you are accompanied by either 
    ELLY or KIREEK, depending on whether or not you have met certain conditions 
    offline.  If you or your partner dies, the quest ends, so bring some Scape 
    Dolls if you have some.
    
    When you reach the end of the walkway, you will find a transporter to the 
    Control Tower.  Here, you must destroy (or have your NPC activate) control 
    panels to advance.  If you have ELLY in the team, she will activate the 
    correct control panel; if you have KIREEK in the team, he will destroy the 
    correct control panel.  If you destroy an incorrect control panel, enemies 
    will spawn and the door will remain locked.  Reach the end and defeat Epsilon.
    
    Take the transporter to Seaside and take the warp at the NE section of the map 
    to return to Pioneer 2.
    
    Notes: To get the RAGOL RING, you must do the following: complete all of the 
    quests that follow the Sue and Bernie sidequest (including Knowing One's 
    Heart), and tell SUE your name during the Dr. Osto's Research quest.  Once you 
    have completed these objectives, KIREEK should join your team instead of ELLY 
    during the Seat of the Heart quest.  If this is the case, you must then 
    provide the correct responses and destroy the correct control panels.
    
    Correct responses:
    -You can count on me
    -Do not hand over IDs
    -Hand IDs over
    -Enter the Teleporter
    -Let's go
    -Scold her
    -Jump off
    
    Correct control panels:
    F1: Middle
    F2: Nearest locked door (last)
    F3: Second left (third)
    F4: Nearest entrance (first)
    F5: Second from locked door on the left side (fourth)
    
    After completing the Control Tower portion of the quest, head to the Seaside 
    area and find ELLY for the RAGOL RING.
    
    Note that RAGOL RING acts like a Scape Doll and disappears if you die with it 
    in your Item Pack.  Should you have Scape Dolls in your inventory, it will 
    disappear instead of using a Scape Doll.  A long time ago, I heard a *rumor* 
    that defeating Dark Falz with it equipped increases the number of times it 
    revives you before disappearing.
    
    Respective Tomorrow

    Platform: GC
    NPC Partner: None
    Number of Players: 1-4
    Reward: Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Respective Tomorrow is similar to the popular online quest, Towards the 
    Future.  In this quest, make your way through most of Episode II's areas, 
    fighting each boss at the end.
    
    Notes: There are two hidden sidequests in Respective Tomorrow: the secret 
    area, Control Tower, and the WIS hunt.
    
    -To find the secret area, activate the computer terminal in the rectangular 
    room.  Defeat all of the enemies first.  Next, find the hidden passage in the 
    room that leads to a secret section of Seabed.  Activate the red switch to 
    unlock a laser fence.  Go through the secret section of Seabed to find a 
    Transporter that leads to the Control Tower.
    
    -The WIS hunt starts when you speak to the soldier hidden in a corner on 
    Pioneer 2.  Answer "Yes" to all of his questions and the WIS sidequest 
    begins.  There are a total of 30 WIS, 6 in each area (including the secret 
    area).  Complete the WIS sidequest and achieve SS Rank (in Ultimate mode) to 
    recieve a rare prize: first time, CUSTOM BARRIER ver.00; second time, CUSTOM 
    FRAME ver.00; third time, CUSTOM RAY ver.00; fourth time, WORKS GUARD; 
    subsequent times, Scape Doll.  SS Rank requirements: collect all 30 WIS, 
    finish Control Tower in less than 5 minutes, have an overall time of less than 
    40 minutes, and maintain less than four deaths.

    to Cave 2.

    Platform: GC, X-Box
    NPC Partner: None
    Number of Players: 1-4
    Reward: Meseta
    Difficulty: 1/3
    
    Tips: Fight your way through most of Episode I's areas, fighting a boss at the 
    end of each area.
    
    Notes: There are many sidequests in Towards the Future: assume the role of the 
    Dragon boss, trade Candy for FLOWER BOUQUET, "test" your love, transform a 
    BRANCH OF PAKU PAKU into a STRIKER OF CHAO, and obtain the PURPLE RING.
    
    -Turn into the Dragon: To become the Dragon, have two players of the same 
    gender speak with the FOmarl by the checkroom.  She will mention some lost 
    paperwork; find them (in the Principal's room) and return them to her.  She 
    will give player 2 some access codes.  Enter them into the computer terminal 
    in the first area, and player 2 will be the Dragon boss.  Press A to use it's 
    breath attack, B to tail whip, X to fly (if you receive enough damage, press X 
    to dive into the ground.  When underground, press X again to charge at your 
    party members), and R to collapse to the ground.  If your party members are 
    injured, their character shrinks.
    
    -Candy to FLOWER BOUQUET: In the Principal's Gift quest, you can get Candy 
    that has an inscribed Section ID of the person you did the quest with.  If you 
    bring the Candy to the FOmarl by the checkroom, she will exchange the Candy 
    with a FLOWER BOUQUET.  You must play with someone that has the same Section 
    ID as the one inscribed on the Candy to get the FLOWER BOUQUET.  [see the 
    Principal's Gift quest for more information]
    
    -Test your love: Two players of opposite genders are required to for this 
    sidequest.  Speak with the FOmarl by the checkroom to get access codes (player 
    2).  Enter them into the computer terminal in the first area to start the 
    quest.  The objective is to stay as close to one another as possible 
    throughout the entire quest (except during boss battles).  You get a Luck 
    Material for doing well.
    
    -BRANCH OF PAKU PAKU to STRIKER OF CHAO: if you have a BRANCH OF PAKU PAKU, 
    you can transform it into a STRIKER OF CHAO by bringing it to the hidden 
    Waterfall room in Ruins 1.  To get to this location, put the BRACH OF PAKU 
    PAKU into your inventory and head to the Medical room on Pioneer 2.  Take the 
    warp and you find yourself in the hidden Waterfall room.  Wait a bit and a 
    message appears; the BRANCH OF PAKU PAKU transforms into a STRIKER OF CHAO.  
    The percents on the original weapon doesn't carry over.
    
    -PURPLE RING: To get the PURPLE RING (Very Hard and Ultimate only), achieve SS 
    Rank for the quest.  Requirements for SS Rank: Kill the maximum (197) or 
    minimum (19) number of enemies including bosses with a completion time of less 
    than 60 minutes and no deaths.

    levels to the Tower.  Fight your way to the end to fight a mini-boss, 
    Episilon, to end the quest.
    
    Notes: If you speak with Hopkins hidden in a corner of Pioneer 2, he will 
    introduce you to his father, Paganini, who will introduce you to a sidequest.  
    After defeating Epsilon, collect the data Paganini wants and return to

    Notes: If you speak with Hopkins after completing the sidequest in the "East 
    Tower" quest, Paganini will introduce you to another sidequest.  In Seabed, 
    find a room with a computer terminal and collect the data from it.  You don't 
    have to enter the Control Tower and defeat Epsilon to complete this 
    sidequest.  At any rate, return the data to Paganini, and from now on, he will 
    add percents to your non-S-RANK weapons.  [See "Gallon's Shop" for more

    Central Dome Fire Swirl
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Prerequisites: Download Quest (X-Box only; available offline in PSO Plus)
    NPC Partner: Dr. D (FOnewm)
    Reward: ??? Meseta
    Difficulty: 3/3
    
    Tips: This quest is unique in that your objective is to save several people
    from a raging inferno (not really) in Forest 2 and on the Central Dome. There
    are 9 people trapped in the inferno, and you must rescue each one and put out
    all of the fires. The quest is split up into three Areas, and each has 3
    victims and a number of fires. Once you clear out one Area, the next opens up.
    Although you don’t fight enemies as often as other quests, when you do they
    will come in swarms (sometimes 8+ enemies onscreen). When you rescue someone,
    you must “Set The Coordinates” (first option). Note that you cannot use
    techniques, so bring extra‘mates (Forces will have to melee to put out the
    fire). Use a projectile weapon because the fire damages you if you get close
    enough. The victims cannot sustain too much damage, either, or else you will
    fail the quest, so put out the fires as quickly as you can. 
    
    -The first Area is simple; find and rescue each victim by putting out the Area 
    fires. One particular victim is on the Bridge, which must be fixed by pressing 
    the red switch. The rest are easy.
    
    -In the second Area, speak with the woman, Anna, behind the locked door, who 
    tells you about Bogarde. Find and rescue him, who tells you to rescue Anna.  
    Return to the woman you spoke to, and she opens the door. The other person is 
    easy to rescue, just eliminate all of the enemies to open up a passage. 
    
    -The last Area is easy, but is crawling with enemies. Put out the fires and 
    defeat all of the enemies to open up the warps. Once you save your last 
    victim, return to P2 and speak with your client. You client asks for you to 
    save one more person. Respond “Accept” twice and return to Forest 2. You can 
    find the person by returning to the room in which you saved the last victim. 
    Speak with him, and he runs away. Use the Area map to locate him and speak 
    with him again. If you walk forward a bit, four Hildebears (Hildelts) jump 
    down. Be careful, because regardless of the difficulty you are playing in, 
    they are as strong as Ulimate mode Hildelts. Dispatch them and return to 
    Pioneer 2 to collect your money.
    
    Notes: In the Dreamcast version, after saving the Doctor, you could speak with
    a kid on P2, who calls you the “BurningRanger.” He also forks over the “Glory
    of the past” item, which can be exchanged for a Mark3 Mag from the Tekker (also
    in this quest, somewhere on P2). In the X-Box version, the kid only calls you
    the “BurningRanger” and you get nothing.

    6. Forging Items
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    First off, an enemy part is an item that can be found only from certain enemies
    whose body parts can be created into a weapon or armor.  Parts usually end in
    “Arm,” indicating that you have found the body part of an enemy.
    
    ============
    Dr. Montague
    ============
    
    Walkthrough
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    To convert a part into a weapon or armor, you need to talk to Dr. Montague in a
    Hunter’s Guild quest in which he makes an appearance.  These quests include
    “Unsealed Door” and “Doctor Osto’s Research.”  However, for him to actually
    want to create an enemy part into an item that can be equipped, you must
    complete “Doc’s Secret Plan.”  Once that quest is complete, he will promise to
    create items for you if you bring him materials (enemy parts).
    
    Quick Notes:
    -Convert item once per visit
    -Dr. Osto’s Research or Unsealed Door only
    
    Fastest Way to Complete
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    The fastest way of unlocking the required quests is to do the following in the
    same difficulty after unlocking Ruins:
    -All of Tier 1
    -Secret Delivery
    -Doc’s Secret Plan
    -Play Doctor Osto’s Research (or Unsealed Door)
    
    Note: If you have more material for him, just play the quest again to convert
    another part.
    
    Note: The X-Box version requires that you complete “Dr. Osto’s Research” before
    he will convert items for you in the “Unsealed Door” quest.

    7. Frequently Asked Questions
    ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
    Q. How do you beat Kireek?
    A. Kireek is a pushover if you realize that any support or curative techniques
    also affect him; when you battle him, do not cast Resta, Shifta, Deband, etc. 
    Instead, either use items or run into a hallway where he cannot follow to cast
    your techs.
    
    Q. What else should I know before I fight Kireek?
    A. Make sure you have an open slot in your Item Pack or else you will not
    receive the SOUL EATER.
    
    Q. Can I get a SOUL BANISH if I do this on Ultimate?
    A. No, only a SOUL EATER.
    
    Q. What happens after all Hunter’s Guild quests are completed?
    A. All quests become available.
    
    Q. What happens if I talked to [insert NPC name here] and quit without
    completing the quest?
    A. That conversation wont be recorded unless the quest is completed.  Note that
    it is important that you complete a quest after speaking with a WEAPONS member,
    otherwise the Emblem you get in the quest wont be saved.  This goes for all
    related find-and-seek quests.
    
    Q. What happens if I quit the game immediately after receiving a Rare from a
    quest before I complete the quest?
    A. You still will not be able to get another Rare for that difficulty level. 
    Funny how the game saves that (even if you quit before completing the quest),
    but not when you talk to NPCs like the WEAPONS members (and then quit).
    
    Q. What if I have more than one enemy part for Dr. Montague to forge into an
    item?
    A. You can only create one item per visit, so just quit the quest and reload it
    again.
    
    Q. What is Download Quests?
    A. This would be the place where you would load up a quest that you downloaded
    from the Network Server.  Currently, there are no downloadable quests for the
    GameCube version.  The X-Box version, however, has one at the moment.
    
    Q. In the Dreamcast (and probably PC) versions, you could not find Rare items
    from enemies or boxes in quests.  Has that changed?
    A. In the GameCube (and probably X-Box) versions, you CAN find Rares, which
    makes quests worth playing.
    
    Q. Can you play a Hunter’s Guild quest in Multi-mode?
    A. Unfortunately, you cannot.  However, there is Challenge mode where you can
    earn some average (but pretty cool) Rare items if you complete it within 7
    hours.
    
    Reward for Offline Challenge Mode (one S-RANK, A-RANK, and B-RANK prize per 
    character):
    
    S-RANK (complete C-Mode within 7 hours)
    -Crazy Tune
    -Akiko's Chinese Wok
    -Flower Cane
    -Broom
    -Toy Hammer
    -Chameleon Scythe
    -Harisen Battle Fan
    -Samba Maracas
    
    A-RANK (complete C-Mode between 7 and 13 hours, or get S-RANK and play any C-
    Mode area
    again)
    -God Shield: Genbu
    
    B-RANK (complete C-Mode with a time of more than 13 hours, or get S-RANK and 
    play any C-Mode area again)
    -God Shield: Seiryuu
    
    Q. Are there Episode II Quests?
    A. As of right now, the only quests available for Episode II are online.  I
    would imagine there would be some downloadable ones in the near future...
    
    *Update* Since the release of Phantasy Star Online Episode I&II Plus, three
    Episode II quests are available for people who buy that version:
    
    -Seat of the Heart
    -East Tower
    -West Tower
    
    Q. What is the Telepipe Trick?
    A. Basically, whenever you enter a new area (through any Telepipe), the enemies
    respawn.  If you were to Telepipe to Pioneer 2, and piped back, there is chance
    that the enemies will respawn as its rare counterpart.  The trick is to do it
    in a room where there are many of the same enemies so that you have a higher
    chance of it respawning as a rare version of the enemy.  Note that this trick
    doesn’t work online, since the enemies are set every time a game is made.  One
    more thing: if you do see a rare enemy, don’t leave the area (don’t Telepipe
    anywhere) because it will probably respawn as its more common equivalent. 
    Finally, even if you attack the enemy, the Telepipe Trick will still work.
    
    The following offline enemies have rare counterparts:
    -Rag Rappy or El Rappy
    -Hildebear or Hildelt
    -Posion Lily or Ob Lilly
    -Pofuilly Slime
    
    You can tell if it is the rare version of the enemy because it looks different
    from it’s more common equivalents.

    All the data in this FAQ was gathered through my experience of all three
    console versions of PHANTASY STAR ONLINE.
    
    I would like to thank the people who e-mailed me with corrections or
    submissions:
    
    -Harlequin(e-mail: harlquin@core.com): Thank you for contributing your Soul
    Eater Walkthrough to the Hunter's Guild FAQ.
    
    -Harbinger of Dreams: Thank you for submitting a cool trick:
    
    "Just a hint if you want to get the frying pan a fraction faster, if you really
    cant be bothered completeting a level where you have an NPC coming along with
    you a la 'The Lost Bride' you can actually just get the emblem from the
    respective character, go into the level and let your NPC teamate die, you will
    fail the quest but you will keep your emblem from that level, saving you from
    trudging through the level just to get the emblem ;)"
    
    Note that since you have to beat all of the quests in order to get the Frying
    Pan, using this trick won't make any sense.  But, if you have unlocked all of
    the quests and decide to get the Frying Pan, this may save some time.
