Phase 1 - Introduction/FAQ (INTRO)

Welcome to the Guide (And stuffs) for .hack//G.U. Volume 2 - Reminisce.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How do I change between Saku and Bo?

A: The appearance of Saku/Bo depends on Haseo's level. Even = Bo, Odd = Saku.

Q: For the Shadowless quest, how do I tell the wolfs apart?

A: Only one has a shadow

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. You might be able to find it on E-Bay.

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: Does anything special come with this game?

A: Yes. The first episode of .hack//ROOTS.

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

A: 100.

Q: What's the max Weapon Points Level I can get?

A: 50.

Q: This guide rocks! Are you going to do one for Volume 3 when it comes out?

A: Yeppers. Based on the amount of E-Mails I get, I'd say people like these. :)

Q: Is there any way I can help?

A: Sure! Come join the dothackers forums and you can post information you
have that we might not. This is a community effort, after all, and everyone is
invited to help! =D

Q: When is Volume 3 coming out in English?

A: We hope for October of this year! O_O!

Phase 3 - (Un)Lucky Animals (LUCKI)

Because of GameFaqs' 80 character limit, I need to remove the charts.
The charts for the lucky animals are available here:


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:


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.

Phase 4 - Weapons/Armor Guide (ARMOUR)

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 6 - Avatar Battles (AVATR)

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)--

6-7 silver looking shots. Most common attack and easy to dodge.

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)--

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.

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)--

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.

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

--AIDA (Helen)--

Basic shots.
Aida beams (5 of them)

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)--

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.

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)--

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.

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 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

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

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 
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.

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 
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 
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 
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 
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 
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.
