.hack//G.U. Volume 2 - Reminisce - Guide and stuffs. - by Zer0 ----------------------------------------------------- This guide is written and compiled by Zer0 (Again -.-).

(Un)Lucky Animals (LUCKI) ------------------------ BIG IMPORTANT NOTE OF DOOM: Because of GameFaqs' 80 character limit, I need to remove the charts. The charts for the lucky animals are available here: http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h157/ZeroTheBurninator/walkthrough/lucki.png If you need to access this guide offline, please print or save that picture. Most fields and dungeons contain 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: This might be confusing to some, I'll try to explain it as best I can. In this list, the animals are divided into 2 sections, the fields and dungeons. Within each section, there is a list of no.(1 to 0) at the top and the side. The number on top is the value of the last digit of your average party's level. --Meaning if i have a party of lvls 55, 56, 57, my average party lvl is 56.-- Hence the value is 6. If you like, you can use Zefie's Average Level Tool to find the average level: http://zefie.com/gu/ If there is any decimals when calculating the values, it's rounded down. The number on the left is the last digit of the area's level. Meaning if i enter an area of lvl 55, the value is 5. The animal that appears will be chosen by the intersection of the values. For instance, my average party level is 56, so the top value is 6. The area I enter is a field level 55, so the side value is 5. Comparing it with the table, I will get Leviathan in the field. I have used initals for the animals, so here's a legend for it. F.W: Fate Worm G.B: Gold Bird Sleip.: Sleipnir T-T.F: Two-tailed Fox Gane.: Ganesha Levi: Leviathan H.W: High Wolf M.C: Malice Cat Tsutsu.: Tsutsuga M.R: Moon Rabbit Oury.: Ouryu Totet.: Totetsu Chime.: Chimera Teng.: Tengu D.G: Dark Goat Q.L: Qi Lin Note: Because of GameFaqs 80 character limit, I need to remove the charts.

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. -----------------+--------------+-------+------------ Weapon Name | Type | Level |Location -----------------+--------------+-------+------------ Spin Gai Gu |Spin |1 |Starting Weapon Spin Kouga |Spin |4 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Spin Man Que |Spin |8 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Spin Rasetu |Spin |14 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Spin Corpse |Spin |18 |Trade with Ninjato Spin Locust |Spin |23 |A reward for saving people from PKers [Spin Ban Mu] |Spin |26 |Kestral Guild Merchant (Water Ban Mu) Spin Piney |Spin |30 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector Spin Axe |Spin |35 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector Spin Needle |Spin |35 |Buy from Kestral Guild Merchant Ripper's Blade |Spin |45 |Kill all of the Blacklisted PKers Broad Demon |Broad |1 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Broad Wheel |Broad |10 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Broad Maiden |Broad |15 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Broad Legged |Broad |20 |Recieve after completing Job Extension Broad Zhen |Broad |25 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector Broad Tu Wan |Broad |30 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector Flame Sword |Broad |32 |Receive after the 2nd Arena Tournament [Broad Wings] |Broad |43 |Trade with IGA (Wrath Wings) Gun Steel |Gun |1 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Gun Fu Yue |Gun |8 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Gun Waves |Gun |24 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector Gun Ocher |Gun |31 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector Water Bayonet |Gun |13 |Trade with Kuhn [Gun Hong] |Gun |41 |Trade with Sidewinder (Fire Hong) Blade Guifei |Blade |1 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Blade Fern |Blade |4 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Blade Thorns |Blade |10 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Blade Thread |Blade |17 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector Blade Sun |Blade |35 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector Tiger Fist |Fist |14 |Trade with Pi [Fist Altair] |Fist |32 |Trade with Mihirogi (Poison Altair) Golden Spear |Lance |15 |Trade with Piros the 3rd Lance Yantie |Lance |24 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector Lance Law |Lance |42 |Trade with Aralagi Spell Xialin |Spell |1 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Spell Xinzhu |Spell |15 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Spell Baiyan |Spell |32 |Buy from Kestral Guild Merchant [Spell Omen] |Spell |38 |Trade with NAOO (Wind Omen) Magic Amber |Magic |1 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Magic Hosei |Magic |15 |Mercenary Area Weapon Shop Magic Nymph |Magic |28 |Buy from DXWeapon Shop Alchemy Sector [Magic Crest] |Magic |37 |Trade with Nagare (Sleep Crest) ----Armor Guide: -----------------+--------------+-------+------------ Armor Name | Type | Level |Location -----------------+--------------+-------+------------ Sub Gear |Robe |1 |Equipment Shop Sub Robe |Robe |10 |Equipment Shop Sub Gown |Robe |20 |Delta Blurry Cursed Pure Bred [Sub Attire] |Robe |28 |Moon Tree Guild Shop (Vigil Attire) Sub Yin Yang |Robe |36 |DXArmor Shop Sub Garment |Robe |42 |Trade with Nogmung Wild Robe |Robe |47 |Complete the Lucky Animal Quest Loose Sash |Light Armor |1 |Equipment Shop Loose Guard |Light Armor |10 |Equipment Shop [Loose Kimono] |Light Armor |20 |Moon Tree Guild Shop (Remedy Kimono) Loose Vest |Light Armor |28 |Graceful Humbling Holy Relic [Loose Plate] |Light Armor |36 |Trade with DOMINATOR (Dry Plate) Loose Sheath |Light Armor |42 |Trade with Encephalon Rough Armor |Heavy Armor |1 |Equipment Shop Rough Shell |Heavy Armor |10 |Equipment Shop Steam Plate |Heavy Armor |20 |Complete the Chim Chim Quest Rough Mail |Heavy Armor |20 |Equipment Shop [Rough Defense] |Heavy Armor |27 |Moon Tree Guild Shop (Wall Defense) [Rough Jiongjia] |Heavy Armor |35 |Moon Tree Guild Shop (Haunt Jiongjia) Steam Armor |Heavy Armor |35 |Mecha Grunty Quest Rough Metal |Heavy Armor |42 |DXArmor Shop Rough Alloy |Heavy Armor |47 |Trade with -COOH Black Armor |Heavy Armor |48 |Complete Abyss Quest Steam Suit |Heavy Armor |50 |Complete Mecha Grunt Quest ------------------------ Phase 5 -

Avatar Battles (AVATR) ------------------------ Controls ------------ Attack - X or O(Japanese Version) Dash - O or X(Japanese Version) Shot - [] (Square) A quick note about Skeith ------------------------- In the first few battles Skeith will have his form from the first game, meaning a basic 3 hit combo when you attack. After 1-2 battles, Skeith will have a form change, giving him new abilities (Like 3 hit combos + 1 extra hit and a wider shot.) Attack Pattern -------------- Basically, you just shoot like crazy at your opponent until he gets paralyzed. When he does, just dash towards and hit him with your scythe; making sure to dodge his attacks (All Avatar attacks are listed below) After you've chopped away at his HP enough, you'll be able to data drain. Basically, just hold O all the time to charge, and let go to shoot it. (And make sure you hit, ok?) Avatar battles -------------- --AIDA (GateKeeper)-- Attack: 6-7 silver looking shots. Most common attack and easy to dodge. Special: An AIDA beam, like those AIDA(Anna) used in Volume 1. The only difference is you'll need to avoid 4-5 beams. Just hide between them. --Gorre (The Machinator)-- Attacks: Basic shots, just like everybody else. Gorre will also melee you if you get too close. When Gorre charges a fist, be sure to dash left or right to avoid it. Specials: Bubble Ship - Gorre transforms into a ship-like object, and shoots bubbles. Just be sure to dash at him before he moves and attack him. Data Drain - When he charges up with electricity, press O and X rapidly. --AIDA (Oswald)-- Attacks: Basic shots. He also shoots little things that you have to slash before they shoot at you. He has a strong melee attack if you get too close. Special: Spider Web - Oswald will shoot spider webs, you have to avoid them. Go in-between them, or just maneuver inside. If it hits, Oswald will do an ULTRA STRONG MELEE ATTACK OF DOOM! --AIDA (Helen)-- Attacks: Basic shots. Aida beams (5 of them) Special: Super Combo - Helen charges up, then dashs at you pushing you back. Then, she uses a fish slap to pwn the hell out of you. --Innis (The Mirage of Deceit)-- Attacks: Basic shots. (Does anyone NOT have these? D:) Mirage Clone - DO NOT attack Innis when you can see through it. It's just a mirage and Innis will do a counter melee attack on you if you do. Little Helpers - Innis summons 5 little helpers that you need to slash. 2 Blades Combo - Dodge by dashing left or right. Specials: Unnamed - Innis will turn into some kind of a ship that will dash at you. You will need to slash it 3-4 times. Data Drain - just tap O and X like before (During the Gorre Fight) --Corbenik (The Rebirth)-- Attacks: Needles - 5 needles shot. Needle ball - 100 needles in a ball that explodes. Strong Melee Attack - Corbenik will charge up and them come at you. Just dash. AIDA Helpers - He will summon 5 of them. Finish them quick, because they shoot. Specials: Tri-Edge Sign - Charges at you with 3 of his hands, doing his ultimate finisher (dodge this or die a painfull death, equal to a thousand suns.) Data Drain - tap O and X (Deja vu, eh?) ----------------------- Phase 7 - Ryu Books (RYUH) ----------------------- Ryu Book I - Battle ------------------- Battle Win --- 1 point Sneak Attack --- 3 Points per Success Rengeki --- 2 Points per Success Awakening --- 3 Points per use Ryu Book II - Party ------------------- Trade --- 18 points per trade Party group --- 5 points each time you build a team Present --- 10 points per present Present cost --- 1 per 100G Ryu Book III - Box ------------------- Open beast god box --- 30 points each time Open normal chest ---3 points per time Open trap box --- 20 points per time Small boxes\those strange things you kick --- 2 points per time Ryu Book IV - Item ------------------- Weapon - 12 points per type Armor - 18 points per type Accessory - 18 points per type Item - 6 points per item type Ryu Book V - Exploring ------------------- Play Time --- 5 points per 30 minutes Field Tranfer --- 35 points per entry Shrine Transfer --- 35 points per entry Cavern Transfer --- 35 points per entry Ryu Book VI - Arena ------------------- Arena battle - 7 points each register CounterHit - 7 points per success WP gain - 1 per 1 wp Ryu Book VII - Monster ------------------- Ghost Type --- 15 points per type Demon Type --- 35 points per type Sea Beast --- 60 points per type Natural Type --- 25 points per type Bird Type --- 30 points per type Plant Type --- 40 points per type Devil Beast --- 20 points per type Machine Type --- 35 points per type Dragon Type --- 35 points per type Shelled Type --- 35 points per type ??? Type --- 25 points per type Ryu Book VIII - Bike ------------------- Bike use - 15 points per 1 minute Run Over an enemy - 80 points per ownage (sadistic abuse of monsters) ----------------------- Phase 8 - Lost Weapons (LWEAP) ----------------------- While playing the game (Sometime after you beat the Holy Palace), you will get an email from an anonymous source (Phyllo from roots) that will give you a lost ground keyword. In this lost ground, you will see 8 platforms, 7 weapons. (The missing weapon is Ovan's) After some events, you will be sent to field, in which a tutorial will pop up about the Adlers Keys. The Adlers key's are random. In a field there could be 1-3 and 1-10 in a dungeon. After getting some Adler Keys, go back to the lost ground and pay 5 keys to the scythe weapon. After that, press the scythe to go into a battle area. You'll fight with some kind of a boss monster. He heals when he is at about 1000 HP. His short meele attacks absorb your HP and SP, so watch out. After you've killed that monster, you get Haseo's strongest scythe in vol 2 - The Lost Scythe. You can now collect more Adlers Keys to unlock other Epitaph Users' weapons. Remember though, the ones the weapons are meant for MUST go into the battle area, which means you'll need a party of Epitaph User + You + Third person of choice. An easy place for getting Adler's keys is Graceful Time's Phoenix. There are 3 Adler's keys pretty much right where you spawn. 1- Right by the spawn area, just look around. 2- Go to the opposite side of the beast temple. 3- Go to the island south of the beast temple. (Use a smoke screen to get past the enemies if you encounter them.) ----------------------- Phase 9 - Doppleganger (DOPPIL) ----------------------- Finding the Doppleganger ------------------------ There are two ways of finding this guy. The first one is to wait around for a while. (10 minutes should be enough) Like Volume 1, you can only find him in fields. Some believe that the other way is simplier. Complete the game, and you will get an email with keywords. Use the first keyword that is given, and the Doppleganger will already be roaming free on the map. The Fight with Doppleganger --------------------------- DualReact recommends the following strategy: Split the weapon usage, start with a scythe. Use an air skill of the scythe and after that, either change to dual blades or broad swords (dual swords on pirority). At about 1000 HP, use the new awakening. That should do 1000-1400 damage which *should* kill him. Watch out for his charm and paralyze. Doppleganger Drops ------------------ This section is split into two parts: With the "Own King" item from Volume 1, and without the "Own King" item. --With "Own King"-- After the first battle, you will get one of these sets: Doppleganger Dual Blades and Doppleganger Broad sword or Doppleganger Dual Blades and Doppleganger Scythe In the second battle, you will the second weapon you didn't get before. And in the third battle, you will get random armors\accessories. --Without "Own King"-- In the first battle, I got broad sword. In the second battle, I got the scythe. The dual swords I didn't get. In third and up battles, you get random goodies. Doppleganger Weapons --------------------- Dual Swords: Heine's Invasion, Level 51, Hold and release, P-attack +22 Raging HIt: Increase critical hit rate by 25% Body Grasp: Absorb 25% of regular attack damage as HP Moruning Chaos: Adds Confusion to regular attacks Broadsword: Heine's Shadow, Level 51, Hold and release, P-attack +50 Past Invite: Half the Target's Hp Mind Grasp: Absorb 25% of regular attack damage as SP Mourning Bind: Adds Charm to regular attacks Scythe: Heine's Zero, Level 51, Hold and release, P-attack +50 Devolve Invite: 10% chance to reduce the enemy's HP to 10% of its max Physique Grasp: Absorb 50% regular attack damage as HP Spirit Grasp: Absorb 25% regular attack damage as SP ----------------------- Phase 10 - The One Sin (1CIN) ----------------------- What is the "One Sin"? --------------------- One Sin is the "undefeatable monster" that Balmung and Orca killed in The World R:1 (.hack//AI Buster Volume 2). In .hack//G.U. Volume 2, the One Sin returns, and it's pissed. To get the One Sin event ---------------------- Use the forum posts :D It's recommended to start this after you beat the game or before the last boss. Go to the forum and reply to a message. Log in to The World, then out again. Read the post reply and you will get keywords. Go to the dungeon of the keywords you just got. Oh look! It's those little annoying and dumb sorcerers from Volume 1! Kill the summoned enemies, then go to the forum and reply to the new message. Get the new keywords and go to them, fight, you know the drill. At the end of the third time, you will fight the One Sin. After that, you will get a mail with keywords to a lost ground. There the REAL version of the One Sin - "The One God Eater" awaits you. What are the rewards? ------------------- Once you defeat it, you will get the best accessory and armor in Volume 2. Both are level 100. ----------------------- Phase 11 - Bike Missions (BIKEY) ----------------------- For the bike missions, before the start of each race, boost your bike using the Square and X button. This saves up to 1.40 seconds. Tips: 1. Its is not necessary to collect all the chim spheres. 2. Try to use the nitro boost. 3. Try to collect chim spheres to keep your nitro bar from emptying. 4. When dealing with 180-degree turns, try to use the skiing function. 5. Get the bike parts from Mac Anu and Dol Donna, and upgrade them. Note that you have to consider between acceleration and stability when choosing which parts to input to the bike, as some parts will lower stability for higher acceleration and vice-versa. Bike Mission Strategy Mission 1 http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h157/ZeroTheBurninator/walkthrough/bike01.gif Point 1: Prepare boost before the race starts. Move forward towards point 2. Point 2: As you reach point 2, turn to the right, collecting at least 10 chim spheres. After collecting 10 chim spheres, nitro boost. Point 3: Here's the part where it determines whether u beat Matsu or not. Instead of turning to the left after grabbing King Chim Chim, ski to the left BEFORE you hit K.C.C, but make sure that you got K.C.C during your ski.(Skiing makes a sharp turn, instead of a normal turn which is centripetal.) Note that when you ski, you can ski towards the chim spheres (which is point 4) to replenish your nitro. Point 5: Continue to collect chim spheres, try to max out your nitro. If your nitro value is around 25, you can ignore the chim spheres in this point. Move on to hit the 2nd K.C.C at point 6. Point 7: Collect chim spheres and maintain. If your chim spheres is close to max, or around 18, ignore point 8 (point 8 is collecting chim spheres as well) and head straight to point 9. Point 9: Hit the last K.C.C with all u have. Mission 2 http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h157/ZeroTheBurninator/walkthrough/bike02.gif Point 1: Prepare boost before the race starts. Move forward towards point 2. Point 2: Collect at least 10 chim spheres and nitro boost. Make sure you hit the 1st K.C.C in point 3. After that, proceed to point 4. Point 4: As you continue to collect chim spheres, turn left at point 4. Point 5: Hit the 2nd K.C.C using the 180-degree ski (The trick is to ski before the K.C.C and hit it while you turn 180 degrees instead of skiing after you hit K.C.C. You have to try and learn it.) Point 6: Continue on and hit the 3rd K.C.C. Mission 3 http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h157/ZeroTheBurninator/walkthrough/bike03.gif Point 1: Prepare boost before the race starts. Move forward towards point 2. Point 2: Turn right while moving to point 2, collecting at least 10 chim spheres and nitro boost. Hit the 1st K.C.C in point 3 and turn left. Point 4: As you move from point 3 to 4, collect as many chim spheres as possible. If you have enough, you can ignore point 5. Point 6: Hit the 2nd K.C.C. Note, there are two routes you can take from here. You can either make a U-turn and move to the cliff (Point 7), or proceed forward and move to the cliff. Either takes up similar timings, so its up to you. Point 9: Continue to collect chim spheres as you move up the cliff to hit the 3rd K.C.C. However, be wary of the cliff, when you move up the cliff, with turn and accelerate at the same time, you will likely go off. Try to turn before accelerating. Mission 4 http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h157/ZeroTheBurninator/walkthrough/bike04.gif Point 1: DO NOT PREPARE BOOST IN THIS MAP! You need to prepare to make a U-turn instead. Make a U-turn and move towards point 2, hitting the 1st K.C.C. Be careful of controlling your bike, its quite hard to control since you will be moving in a S-curve. It's likely you will hit the wall if you are not careful, try to avoid hitting it. Point 3: From point 2, move on to collect chim spheres in point 3. Turn right after that to hit the 2nd K.C.C in point 4. Point 5: If you have accumulated sufficient chim spheres after point 4, nitro boost and collect more chim spheres in point 5. As you move from point 5 to 6, there is quite a few turns you have to make, so you have to get a feel for when to turn and accelerate, especially with nitro boost activated. (The trick to is release the X button the instant before u turn, and push the X button after u start the turn, and if possible, try to move diagonally between turns instead of making turns.) Point 6: Here is another part you have to worry about: The wall, like point 2. Since you have nitro boost, it's very difficult to control the steering in this point. Same theory, release the X button the instant before you turn, and push the X button after you start the turn. This requires some time and experience, it's not easy to avoid hitting the wall. Proceed from here to hit the 3rd k.C.C at point 7. Mission 5 http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h157/ZeroTheBurninator/walkthrough/bike05.gif Point 1: Prepare boost before the race starts. Move forward towards point 2, collecting sufficient chim spheres and activate nitro boost. Continue to collect more chim spheres in point 3. Point 4: Hit the 1st K.C.C. You have to make a 180 degree turn from here. Again, the trick is to ski before the K.C.C and hit it while you turn 180 degrees instead of skiing after you hit K.C.C. Return back to point 1 and move towards point 5 by turning right. Point 5: Collect chim spheres in point 5 and hit the 2nd k.C.C in point 6. Collect more chim spheres in point 7. Point 7: From here, turn here and hit the 3rd K.C.C hiding behind the cliff. General tips: 1. You will want to race in a map where you can see, right? Choose an area which is bright and is in daylight, instead of nighttime. 2. Learn the shortest path in the map by trying again and again. When you are in an open area and you are making a right/left turn, don't make a 90 degree turn. Instead, turn early and make a curve turn. You want to save as much time as possible, right? 3. When you are stopped by obstacles/when nitro boost stops, do not restart the race immediately. Continue on to search for any possible places for you to save time in. Furthermore, you can train your skiing since there is no time limit. 4. Do not follow the steps blindly. If you find a route/approach that's more comfortable for you, use that route instead. ----------------------- Phase 12 - Keyword Guide (KIWORD) ----------------------- --PLEASE NOTE-- This is a translation of the Japanese keywords, and might vary in the English version of Volume 2. --------- 1st Word --------- Running Compromising Severity Burning Pretending Intelligent Worried Lingering Secret Transient Growing Aesthetics Insight Heart Hallucination Light Standing Magnificent Blowing through Face Pursuit Stuck Shocking Raging Nearing dark clouds Institutions given from the past Watching Grace Weakness Pledging Confusion Round coin Smiling Honesty Ghost story Kaoru Wailing Petition Grieving Acclaimed Profound Translucent Winding Adlertion Dark Instant Competing Returning ---------- 2nd Word ---------- Mystery Drifting Unclean Omission Ghostly High ability GirlfriendÂ’s Hair Idea born in mind Time Evening scene Hardships Neighborhood Purity Commandment Steam engine Calm Opacity Marine Infinite Skill Organic Persistence Strategy Immortality Insatiability Broad daylight Stalwart Spiral Tamagaki 1000 heavy Eternity SunsetÂ’s Fruitless Fine 8 maidens Sousei NozarashiÂ’s Tinzinyu PocketÂ’s Tyrannosaurus Rex Court Mourning ---------- 3rd Word ---------- Goshiki desert Eradication Ash Kagura 7 crimes Route Moonlit night Antithesis Star pupil Recollection Daydream Shion Negative heliotropism Life Symphony Waltz Western Shade animal Hot wind Resident Motorcycle rider Hyphae Guard End Giant Life Form Battlefield Delusion Uncontrollable passion Keel Mountains Dead World Secret place Secrets Active volcano Dandy Gatarou Water clock Indicating flag Great runner Ground breaking ceremony Stone pillow Confidant Treasure chest/casket Buttercup White wing wolf Crystal Magnifying glass War Sorceress Nuie Forget-me-not Arrow bundle Cuckoo Practitioner Sword ridge Orion Starry night Imperial decree Moon Rashness Moonlight Box Witchcraft Treasure Scarab beetle Waterfall ----------------------- Phase 13 - Contact Info (CONTAKT) ----------------------- Bandai - For the first four .hack games.
