			      -------------------
----------------------------I) Introduction to Guide------------------------
			      ------------------
Welcome back everyone. Glad to see you found your way to my next guide in the
 G.U. Series. I'm very sorry that it's taken me this long to write the next
guide. A lot has been happening this summer and with the completion of my last
guide I wasn't entirely sure I wanted to attempt a second one. Yet here I am
going at it yet again. Also, I wanted to thank you all for sending me e-mails
saying you liked the guide for Rebirth. I only hope to be able to deliver a 
guide just as good if not better. Also I wanted to say that I know now for 
sure that I like .hack// GU better the Finial Fantasy XII. But before you go
to tear my head off here is my reason: FF XII had better graphics and better
areas to explore. The game is to be commended on the fact they made it so huge
and yet I always found myself marveling over how beautiful the game looked.
Still:   .hack//GU beats FF XII in terms of plot line. End of Discussion.

So anyway, after playing Vol 2 in the GU series I have to say that it will
not disappoint. It has a different feel to it then Rebirth but I can't really
say that one game was any better then the other. They both had strong points.

Well anyway, enough of me going on like a babbling fool; onto the guide.

----------
I'd like to re-cap quickly with what was said in the last guide and also
to add some new information to this guide so please read:

These are the major forms of Media in the .Hack// series:

Going in chronological order-

 .Hack//SIGN (TV series),
 .Hack//Infection, Mutation, Outbreak, and Quarantine (Games)
 .Hack//Legend of the Twilight (TV)
 .Hack//ROOTS (TV)
 .Hack// G.U. Vol: 1 (Rebirth),2 (Reminisce),and 3 (Redemption)

 (.Hack// vol. 3 Redemption is scheduled for release in the Fall of 07 
   for the US)

 Also note that there are bonus disks that come with each of the four original 
 games and one bonus disk (The Terminal Disk) that comes with the special 
 edition of .Hack//G.U.- Vol. 1-Rebirth.  Also on the normal game disk of
 Vol. 2-Reminisce there is included the first episode of .hack//Roots, which 
 can be watched through the game's desktop under the movie player.
---------- 
Moving along:

This guide will take you step-by-step through Vol. 2 Reminisce. I will
include the story events, Optional Quests, Hidden Quest, Books of 1000,
leveling up, boss fights, back ground information, and of course other little
odds and ends.

Just like in the last guide this walkthrough DOES contain spoilers, BUT again
like in the last guide I will mark them before hand and have you play ahead.
You will notice that my standard line is: "Watch the scenes, and then come
back and read more." This allows you to play through the game and still enjoy 
all the surprises the story has to offer without spoiling it for yourself.
SO DON'T READ AHEAD!!!!

Next on the list is that I finally know how Converting data works. But
more on that in a moment. For now lets get started with this game.


			        ------------------
-------------------------------- II) G.U. series  ---------------------------
				------------------


			.Hack// G.U.



--------------------B) Vol. 2- Reminisce --------------------------

--- Game info.
Game length: Moderate 
Average Game time: 30 hours (25-40 hours)
Difficulty: Medium 

----Over View---
--Gameplay: 9/10- Nothing's perfect but I really enjoyed the combat in this
volume. It felt like you were almost playing a different game instead of the
same game with a continued story line.
--Music: 10/10- It fits perfectly, and I mean Perfectly.
--Graphics: 9/10 - granted it can't compare to some 
Final Fantasy CG movies, but it's the next best thing.
--Voice Acting: 9/10 - only on rare occasions did I 
think it might have been better, but even then not by much.
--Replay Value: 9/10- Replay value is pretty good  once you beat
the second game; there is a good amount to do.
--Story Line: 10/10- Really this one is an odd ball of the whole
series. For some reason it had a very 'different' feel to the story. It
wasn't bad, just different. But still very enjoyable.

Overall rating: 9/10 - I personally think it ties place with vol. 1
in the overall ranking of how good the game is. Both have strengths 
and weaknesses but still: Great game play, amazing music, great
graphics, and a story worthy to be called .Hack// .


--- Getting started-
Alright. First things first. 


-------People Converting from Vol. 1 Rebirth.--------------

Those of us who went and bought the first game,
you will be glad to know that you will indeed keep the following things from 
the last game: Items, EXP, party list, equipment, money, Guild Rank, affection
rating, and lots of other stuff. As long as you have the cleared data
from the first game you can keep all that stuff mentioned above. For now read
on and I'll walk you through getting your data converted.

Oh by the way. I should mention somthing that
could really help you when getting started in the vol. 2. As you may remember
from my first guide. I noted that Corporal Yano and Henko ussally had items
for trade. These items are called Beginner's Text and Beginner's Book.
They raise your skill level for a weapon by 50%. Use two of them in a row
and you've gained yourself a one Skill level. Well, after I beat vol. 1
I had alot of time on my hands waiting for the second game to come out. So
I took the time to get as many Begginer's Texts/Books as I possibly could.
The reason is that once you start the second game you can get all your arts
right off the bat. As long as you raised your skill level to the max, which
is skill level 10 for vol 1. This should work well for you. So here's a list
of the arts and what Level you get them at.

-Weapon type---:------- Arts-----:-Skill level--

Duel Swords    :    Whirlwind    : 11
               : Chaotic Strike  : 14

Broad Sword:   : Tiger Strike    : 12
	       : Shell Breaker   : 15
 

Scythe:        : Heavenly wheel  : 16
------------------------------------------------

See when you get you next Job Extension your skill level of your Scythe will
be equal to your lowest level between your Broad Sword and Dual swords. So you
see it's possible to get all your arts right off the bat. All you need to do 
is have 22 total Begginer's Text/Books to get all your arts right from the
beggining of the game. So if you decided to play the game again or if you
really really want those arts (like I ussally do) Take out vol. 2 and go
play Rebirth for awhile and aquire those items you need. And as a side note;
I suggest you have around 200,000GP when you start into Vol. 2 as it will help
you buy all the new equipment,items,Upgrades, and spells.
But that's just me.



-------People starting a new game from scratch.-------------

Well, for you who are starting new; this is going kind of suck. 
When you start a new game you will be given a certain amount of stuff 
to help you out, but honestly you got your work cut out for you. See,
people converting had the chance to earn  extra money, level up, 
and do extra stuff before they started into the this game. You on the 
other hand won't have that opportunity. Here's a list of stats for
when you start a new game:

Haseo: 
-Level 40
-Skill level: TwinSword-10, BroadSword-10

-Twin swords: Level 40 Poison Needle
-Broad Sword: Level 32 Flame sword
-Armor: Level 35 Vigil Jiongjia
-Accessory: Level 40 simple watch

-Items: Healing serum x15, sprite drop x10,Revival Medicine x5, 
Health Scroolx2.

-Money: 5,000 GP

Honestly I don't know what to tell you other then good luck.
You're going to need it.
------------------------------------------------------------

As you put in the disk take time to watch the opening movie play before you
get to the main menu. Don't skip it. It's just as sweet as the last one 
if not better.

As the main menu comes up notice that you no longer have the Convert Option.
Hmm, interesting no? Go ahead and start a new game. If you beat Vol. 1 and have
the data on the same memory card you will get a message that reads as follows:

"You can begin Vol. 2 Reminisce by converting clear Data from Vol. 1 Rebirth.
Begin game by converting clear data?"

Obviously you want to select "yes" because otherwise you'll waste all the work
you did in the last game.

You will be asked to chose the save file to start a new game with.

Once you do that you will get another message:
"You will recive a bonus for converting clear data from Vol. 1 Rebirth.
If your inventory is full items will be stored in you guild storage."

Sweet! Not only do you get to keep your stuff from the last game but they
give you a double reward for just beating the last game. 

Here is the list of what you get: Strange Coffeex3,Fairy Rainx3,Fairy dropx10,
Healing stormx3,healing potionx10, and 5,000 GP. And last but not least:
a movie added to your desktop Movie player.

So anywho. Watch and enjoy the opening scenes, and there is a large amount
of them. So kick back and relax. Feel free to read ahead AFTER you finish all
those scenes. I mean like ALL of them. Come back when they turn you lose in
Mac Anu.










		   --------------------------
----------------------    Seeds of Chaos    ------------------
		   --------------------------

			










--------------------------------
Movie- 00-Prologue
Short Version/Main points: You see Sakubo Standing over the lake at the
lost grounds lookign down into the water. And underneather there is a figure
froze in ice and bound by chains. Who looks alot like Saku's master En. 
Also notice how Saku suddenly gets that red glowing outline near the end
of the movie. Intresting. 
--------------------------------


Anyway, the following scenes have a nariator go over the events in Vol. 1
Rebirth. This over view before the game starts is a tradition of the .hack
games and is yet another reason why I love the games so much.
Listen. watch. Enjoy.

--------------------------------
Movie- 01-Tragedy,Again
Short Version/Main points: It shows Kuhn taking Atoli in Magus' arms
and flying quickly to return to "The World."
--------------------------------

--------------------------------
Movie- 02-After Affects
Short Version/Main points: It show's Atoli's
hand breaking apart. And then she starts screaming and
holding her head like she's going nuts. Creepy.
--------------------------------


Anyway, after all the sceens:

Wow, What a mind job, hu? Everyone's caught INSIDE the game, that's crazy
awesome to think about, viewing the game dirrectly through your mind. Creepy.

So, looks like you got to figure what the heck is going on.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
	----------------------------


Before you go running off check in at Canard's @home. Talk to Gaspard who
tells you he's really freaked out and scared. Also if you talk to Death Grunty
about the Books of 1000, you're rankings should go up ALOT. I maxed out 
books 5 and 6 and got to the 4th ranking on book 2 and 8.
Also, If you followed my advice and got a bunch of Begginers Texts/Books,
do not use them right now, save them for a little bit later. I'll let you
know when is a good time. For now just continue on with the story.

Time to check your map and head for all the blue circles. Also I'd like to 
note that you can use your steam bike, but I should forwarn you, They did an 
overhaul on the engine and the bike is now faster and turns sharper. 
The reason is that soon you'll be able to do Bike Missions which take the 
place of the original game's grunty races. So get on your bike and go racing
around Mac Anu to talk with players.


Once you do all of that you report back to Raven. And you run into Sakaki.
You know for some reason Haseo can manage to be generally nice to everyone
except Sakaki and to Atoli when Sakaki comes up in a converstation.

Well whatever. At this point just watch the scenes and go with the flow.
Eventually you get some intresting information on the Avatars and what not,
and you'll be asked to go to Moon Tree and talk to the guild about getting
help to shearch the AIDA areas......just peachy. Save at the Save Shop and 
then head to the chaos Gate. Put Pi in your party and head out.


	----------------------------
-------1)Setting,Eterinty's,Night Moon-------
	----------------------------
Area Type: LandScape
Area Level: (none)
Party: Haseo,Pi,none
My Level: 50


well now, as you see the scenes unfold, watch first then continue to read.







As you can see Sakaki has been doing some nosing around and somehow managed
to find out the real purpose of Raven and also has come across AIDA. That's
very very intresting considering that Under the most liky circumstances 
there's no way that a normal player like Sakaki could have found out about
AIDA. Which beggs the question: Did someone tell him about it?
But then the list of people that actually know about AIDA is a very very short
list. But I'll leave it to you to make guesses.

At any rate you need to investigate some areas that have AIDA signals comming
from them. So time to head back to town.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
	----------------------------

Place Kuhn in your Party and get ready to head out to an area.

	----------------------------
-------2)Galloping,Subtle,Desert -------
	----------------------------
Area Type: Highlands
Area Level: 43
Party:Haseo,Pi, Kuhn
My Level: 50

Obviously due to the low level of the area you're proabaly going to pwn
any enemies. Also Note that this is infact a new type of area, Highlands.
As you enter the area you see some scenes with some Pkers. They're prety
easy to kill at level 50; if you started a new game from scratch then they'll
be a challenge. *shrugs* good pratice. 

Anywho, after the pkers are knocked out cold, time to move on. There is a tree
near by that you can kick for chims if you're low. Use 5 chims to power the 
warp point and continue onto the main area of the field.

As you warp to the main part of the field you'll notice that the area is FULL
of Pkers. hehehehehehe......you know what this means?

THE TERROR OF DEATH IS BACK BABY!!!!! Time to do us some PKKing.

Run around and have fun killing all the Kestral pkers.I should note quickly 
that some stuff has changed with the combat system in Vol. 2: The attacks
on your Twin Swords has moved improved from a 4 attack combo to a 7 attack
combo. Also your Broad Sword has 3 Charge bars for your area attack, and when
you release the attack, Shock waves move in a line away from you toward your
enemy. Charge up the whole way for more shock waves. Also if you fight a few
pkers you should gain a Skill level, if you use Dual swords you will gain
a new Arts at skill level 11 which you may chose to add to your skill trigger.
Other then that it's  pretty much bussiness as ussual.

As for the rest of the area; it's all pretty straight forward. Just move along
the area till you get to the next warp point, use it and do the same thing 
over again. And Make sure to grab the symbol fragments. Also after you warp
the second time you'll encounter AIDA. So prepare for an avatar fight.




-----------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT!: AIDA 
My Level: 50
Enemy Attacks:
Algol Bullet- use Slash to defend
Algol Laser- Powerful attack, use Dash to avoid.
Normal shot- It will shoot little balls of energy at you. Dash to evade.

Unlike in the last game, this AIDA are so weak you don't even need to stun
it to be able to do enough damage to kill it. You can move in close and just
slash away. But if you find it's giving you trouble then do it the normal way.

Keep shooting it till it's stuned, get and close and slash away. Keep going 
till it protect breaks.

When it protect breaks you'll have a timer that will count down from about 1 
minute, the timers vary from Boss to Boss. You need to data drain it in that
time. Charge DD as you continue to watch the incomming enemy shots, dodge them
and when AIDA pauses for a breif moment, release DD and fire away.
-----------------------------------



After you beat AIDA you get a message from Nala that you should come to the
Beast Temple. Grab the other two Symbols and do just that.
As you enter the Beast Temple Watch the scenes with Gabi and Ovan. Come
back to read when they're done.




















Yes that's right. Yata was using the players to observe the reaction ADIA had
to all their intense feelings. But now that the Jig's up he'll have no choice
but to allow everyone to return to the regulare CC Corp sever. Still I know
Yata and who he was from the old games. I wonder if he didn't have a very good
reason to do what he did. Also Being that I know who Yata is, who could Ovan
be? .....No seriosuly, I'm not sure it was ever confirmed that Ovan was a
character from the original games. Still, it makes me wonder.

However, for now the only thing to do is to head back to town.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
	----------------------------

Head for Raven.

When you get there more scenes.



Looks like you'll you need to head back to where you faced off with 
Tri-Edge. You know I think it's intresting that this would be the same
day that 1) Haseo got crowned the Emporer, 2) that he fought and killed 
Tri-edge, and 3) the same day everyone's been trapped on the AIDA sever.
hmmm...intresting.

At any rate time to head out, go to the chaos gate, save, and prepare.


Hidden,Forbidden,Bulwark
	----------------------------
-------3)Hidden,Forbidden,Bulwark -------
	----------------------------
Area Type: LandScape
Area Level: None
Party:Haseo,Pi, Kuhn
My Level: 51


As you enter the area Pi will talk to you then you'll get a short lesson
on Sign Hacking, kinda replaces Gate Hacking from the old games. *shurgs*
sounds cool to me.

Just approch the sign and then.....DENIED! That's right, you don't have enough
Data Seeds (replaced Virus cores from the old game). But before you start 
reaching for the nearest spoon to gouge out you eyes in frustration.
Let me encourage you a bit. Collecting  Data Seeds is NOT as bad as collecting
Virus cores from the old games. Getting Data Seeds is ussally story related 
and there for you will be given very specific areas to go to and very special
AIDA to get the D.S. from. this means that the number you need is smaller and
you don't have to go around Data Draining everything like crazy. So put down 
the spoon or fork or knife, pick your controler back up and relax, this won't
be that bad. =P

Head back to town.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
	----------------------------


Save and head to the new area.


	----------------------------
-------4)According,Floating,Eradiction-------
	----------------------------
Area Type: Jungle Dungeon
Area Level: 43
Party:Haseo,Pi,Kuhn
My Level: 51

For those of you without a fair orb, follow the passages left everytime
you come to a split until you find the way down to the next floor.
Also I want to say that there's been some changes to this type of dungeon.
Not sure exactly what it is, but something's different. Also the way that
monsters move around a room now instead of standing still is different.

At any rate, just keep moving.

Right before you head to the next floor you'll encounter AIDA.

-----------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT!: AIDA 
My Level: 51
Enemy Attacks:
Algol Bullet- use Slash to defend
Algol Laser- Powerful attack, use Dash to avoid.
Normal shot- It will shoot little balls of energy at you. Dash to evade.

Unlike in the last game, this AIDA are so weak you don't even need to stun
it to be able to do enough damage to kill it. You can move in close and just
slash away. But if you find it's giving you trouble then do it the normal way.

Keep shooting it till it's stuned, get and close and slash away. Keep going 
till it protect breaks.

When it protect breaks you'll have a timer that will count down from about 1 
minute, the timers vary from Boss to Boss. You need to data drain it in that
time. Charge DD as you continue to watch the incomming enemy shots, dodge them
and when AIDA pauses for a breif moment, release DD and fire away.
-----------------------------------

When done, just keep moving to the next floor.

On the next floor, just keep going forward, Find the warp point to take
you to the other section of the dungeon.

Once you warp it's all straight forward from here. Near the beast statue you'll
encounter AIDA again. Use same stragedy as mentioned above.

When you defeat the second AIDA, Pi will mention that you have enough Data 
seeds to continue. Well that was realitivly painless wasn't it? Since you're
close to the Beast Statue you might as well go there because that's your 
closest Platform that would be your ticket back to town. Grab the beast statue
 treasure and head back.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
	----------------------------


Not to do but warp to the area and to the escape from this place. 

"Ladies and gentemen your escape routes are here, here and here.
And if you get caught in an AIDA Sever.....well sucks to be you."

	----------------------------
-------5)Hidden,Forbidden,Bulwark -------
	----------------------------
Area Type: LandScape
Area Level: None
Party:Haseo,Pi, Kuhn
My Level: 51

Examine the Sign and hack away.

You see some scenes and then, uh oh. AIDA's gateKeeper. Peachy. This
AIDA is no push over. Unlike his cousins, this guy has a hard schell to crack
and has plenty of attack power.

-----------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT!: AIDA 
My Level: 51
Enemy Attacks:
Kobold Blast- Alot like the lesser AIDA, use Slash to defend
Algol Maser- Powerful attack,DON'T Dash. That will most likly get you shot.
what you want to do is just push the joy stick to the right. When the blast 
goes off it should miss you entierly. Just make sure not to go too far right or
you'll hit the secondry shot.

Normal shot- It will shoot little balls of energy at you. Dash to evade.

Unlike in the last game, this AIDA is no Push over. The best idea is while 
it is shooting at you to return fire and to pound it with your own shots. This
should stun it allowing you to land some slashes.

Keep shooting it till it's stuned, get and close in and slash away. Keep going
till it protect breaks.

When it protect breaks you'll have a timer that will count down from about 1 
minute, the timers vary from Boss to Boss. You need to data drain it in that
time. Charge DD as you continue to watch the incomming enemy shots, dodge them
and when AIDA pauses for a breif moment, release DD and fire away.
-----------------------------------


After Word you'll get an extra key item called O-van01. Hmmmm...intresting.

Well now, here we find the Operation folder. And our way out. Watch all the 
scenes, there are a number of them here. So enjoy. and Don't read ahead
till you're done watching.



















--------------------------------
Movie- 03- Escape
Short Version/Main points: Shows everyone escaping the AIDA Sever.
Prety straight forward.

--------------------------------
Movie- 04-And there he was...
Short Version/Main points: Hehehe, yes laides and gentalmen they are BACK!
Orca of the Azure Sea and Bulmung of the Azure Sky. Again, like Tri-Edge
these guys are not controled by their original players. They're being controled
by something else.......
And Tri-edge. He's back.....obviously.
--------------------------------


Well, after the close incounter with The Descendants, everyone seemed
to be able to make it back alright. And oddly enough the whole senerio seemed
to have only happend in a matter of minutes. Now that's what I call impressive.
Just think how fast everyone's brain would have to work to be able to compact
several hours of relative time into just a few minutes. That is what I call
weird.

------Desktop-

There's alot to do here. So first things first, Check your e-mails.


----------------------------------
-E-mail-  Atoli  : My Voice
Short version: She says that her hand is paralyzed,and 
She'd like to talk with you in Mac Anu.
----------------------------------

----------------------------------
-E-mail-  Uchiyamada  : Conversion Bonuses
Short version: Hehe, this has lots of good news. 
Some you already knew, some you didn't.
First is that you got items and GP for converting your data. 
That you knew, what you probably didn't know is that the movies
that were added to your desktop is the fist episode of .Hack//Roots which
I suggest you watch as it helps explain somethings about Haseo, Ovan, and 
Shino that you probably just didn't know. 
Last is the good stuff about the Doppelganger. If you beat it in the
last game and have the "OWN King" then what you do is go out and beat him
in This game. What will happen is that if you beat him twice. You will get 
the Doppelganger's Weapons, and they are level 50 weapons that have stats
like level 100 wepaons and are the BEST weapons in the whole second
game. I'll cover how to get those in a bit, for now-> the other e-mails.
----------------------------------


----------------------------------
-E-mail- CC Corp   : Crimsion VS now open
Short version: That's right, you can now play Crimsion VS
from your desktop. It's not the greatest thing in the world but
I still found it enjoyable to try and master. Again I'll include my
stragey for beating it.
----------------------------------

----------------------------------
-E-mail- CC Corp   : "Upgrades"
Short version: It's self explainatory.
Just read and pay attention. I've already covered the important stuff.
----------------------------------

----------------------------------
-E-mail-  CC Corp  : Champaign End
Short version: All the Champaigns have ended from the old
game, good news is you get to do them all over again! yay?
----------------------------------

Flip over to the News.

----------------------------------
-News-    : 
Short version: I'm sure you're Dieing to see 
what's up with Salvador from good old Online Jack.
It's a very good episode, make sure to watch it.
Also some articels on DollSyndrome and some other stuff.
----------------------------------

----------------------------------
-Forums-    : 
Short version: Some pictures in the Apkallu. Some topics about
Crimsion VS and the sever incident. Basic stuff. Check the rumors
board for some old key words.
----------------------------------

Well now that's done there are three options, 1) go to your movie player
and scroll to the back and watch the first episode of .hack//Roots. It's really
good. 2) Load up crimsion VS and try your hand at it. 3)Log-in when you're
all done.

----------------------------------
-"crimsion VS"- 
Ok, this can be kinda confussing to start with. I'll do what I can to 
explain it.

1) Battles run automaticlly. While you're off doing stuff in the game, the 
Card battles run themselves. So really all you have to do is set everything
up before hand and let things run their course.

2) A Deck is the group of cards you battle with. The Deck is made up
of 4 cards total: 1 General Card, and 3 Junction Cards. Another way to
think of it is like this-> You're general card is the character you use to
fight with. And the Junction card gives that Character special skills they
need to fight and win a battle. Ok, so far so good right?

3) Each General (Character) Has a limit of Charisma. It's bascily how they 
limit how strong a General card (Character) can be. See each of your Junction
Cards (Skills) cost a certian amount of Charisma. So in other words you can't
just take your 3 best Junction cards and give them to the same General Card
(character). The 3 junction cards have a cost ,and that cost has to be equal to
or less then the total Charisma that General has.

4) If you still don't get the hang of things I suggest reading up on the 
forums. There's alot of good info there. Also I highly suggest making a few
decks and then messing around with the Practice Battle. It'll give you a 
better feel for how things work. Bellow I listed a good starting set up for
when you start into Crimsion VS. Good luck.

General Card: Silabus-Canard
Junction 1st- Rose Letters #077
Junction 2nd- The Trinity #030
Junction 3rd- Order Upheld #076

With this set up, you should gain a large amount of AP which is the unit
of damage given in the card battles. This will greatly increase you chances
to win battles. Make sure to register your deck for battle before you quit.
----------------------------------



About this time you should probably log-in. There's a new topic in the 
offical forums. But not much to read, but it is intresting for what is there.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
	----------------------------
Just head down to the Alchemy District for some scenes with Atoli. Come back
when they're all done.


















So Haseo is finially starting to realize that having power is the same thing
as being powerless. I'd say he's coming one step closer to becoming a hero.
At any rate, log-out check some e-mails.

----------------------------------
-E-mail-   Yata : To all GU members

to meet at the Serpent of lore.

Head for Raven, watch then come back when its done.


As the scenes end you see one of the CC Corp. big shot talking to Yata. 
It seems that despite Yata generally being a pain, he's having trouble
keeping the big wigs of the company happy with what's been happening. You know
this sounds alot like the first games. Makes you wonder if they've forgoten 
everything that chain of events taught them. Well, anyway. Yata brings up a 
good point. AIDA is staying within the boundries of 'the world' becuase it is
intrested in people. If the game shuts down, AIDA starts looking for other 
things to keep it's self intrested. Many player from the old games will recall
that when stuff from Inside 'The world' starts to go outside "The World' it 
ussaly ends up with sh*t blowing up.

At any rate, you get a short mail from Silabus asking you to come to Canard.
After the scenes, log-out.


----------------------------------
-E-mail- Ovan : If you Wish
Short version: Ovan said he's willing to meet with you if you want.
He says he'd like to speak with you about what's been going on. Oh and for
future reference. Ovan does want to help Shino, never forget that. No matter
what.
----------------------------------

For now log-in.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
	----------------------------

Again, it seems that the return to Hidden Forbidden HolyGround was to be
expected. I mean it IS one of the most important locations in the whole game.

Also, I want to mention that you now have key words for Arche Koeln Waterfall.
It's the meeting place Ovan met Haseo at the very beginning of the first game.
And, it just happens to be a place were another Tri-Edge Sign is located.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
	----------------------------
Head over to the brand new town.


	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Dol Dona	    -------
	----------------------------

Welcome friends to the new town. This place reminds me alot of the
Beta Server,Highland City, from the old games. Kinda the same concept.
Only ......cooler. Anywho, this will be your base of operations for the rest
of the game. So I'd take some time to explore. Granted this place isn't nearly
as large as Mac Anu. But I still think it's prety cool. Not to mention the cool
new @home. But before we get to that, head forward and open the gate, look 
around at all the new shops. JUST LOOK, don't buy anything just yet. I'll let
you know what you need to buy and what is a waste of your money.

Head for Carnard's new @home. It's way in the back, use your map if you're
confused. Also, there is a bike shop right there near the entrance of the 
Guild. If you did as I suggested you should have about 200,000GP. Go ahead and
buy the best upgrades that are avalible. Here's a list of what I got for my
bike:

170 Engine- 25,000Gp
Yamane Armor-40,000Gp
Type 500 Muffler-24,000Gp
150 Tires-23,000Gp

Yes, I know thats rather a large amount, but look at the bright side, now
your chances of completeing the Bike missions have increased from None, to 
Slim. And also, you won't have to pay for any of your other upgrades to your
bike, after this; all the upgrades come from prizes for doing bike trials.

Ok then, with that done head into the new Guild @home. Watch the scenes. If you
bought the new 'tune ups', go ahead and put those on now.

Also I should mention that if you got the Ripper's Baldes from the last game.
You might want to get out some materies to customize a new set of twin blades.
The weapon shop has a set of level 51 blades that you'll need materials for.
And last but not least, if you followed my adivice and went out and aquired
a bunch of Begginers Texts/Books I would get those out of storage now too.
BUT DONT USE THEM. Not yet. I'll tell you when.


Afterward head back to town to check out the Quest shop.

Before you head out on your new quest, take some time to do shopping.

Buy/Sell:


Haseo-
weapons:Spin Ribs-level 51, Broad Guiren-Level 51
Armor:Rough Steel-lvl 51
Accessory: Any of the lvl 51

Silabus-
Weapon:Blade Luer-lvl 51
Armor:Loose Leather-lvl 51
Accessory:Any of the lvl 51

Gaspard-
Weapon: Magic Huawen-lvl 51
Armor:Sub Cape-lvl-51
Accessory:Any of the lvl 51

You may or may not be able to get all this. I was barly able to get all the 
weapons and armor and had to skip the accessories for now. Also, don't forget
to customize the equipment and move the materials from the old equipemt to the
new stuff you just bought. And if you where wondering, you can find Silabus and
Gaspard by the Chaos Gate if you want to give them the new stuff you just 
bought.

----
Important note: ALWAYS remeber to go under 'Customize' and move weapons,
armor, and accessories materials from your old equipment to your new
equipment. That way you dont have to buy new materials to customize your 
new equipment. I know this is common sence, but I had to say it.
----

Anywho, now last thing, go to the Quest shop and Accept the new quest there.

---------------------------( Quest )---------------------------
-----1)Steam Scientist's Test
	----------------------------
-------  7)Airy,Engine's, waltz (Q)  -------
	----------------------------
Area Type: Field
Area Level: 48
Party: Haseo,Silabus, Gaspard
My Level: 51

Apperentally in this quest you have two robots who have gone berserk.
You need to beat them in battle and get their memory back to the good
Doctor. He gave you 3 items that when placed on three differnt hills, will
lower the fighting abilities of the robots. Well, looks like we got some work
to do.

First, head to the area.

Baicily there are only three hills, use your steam bike to get around quickly.
Also, make sure to grab the various chests that are in the are. Other then 
that, thee's not alot to say about it other then the fight. Just continue on 
when you've planted all three. 

--Oh yeah, one more thing. I know this is kind of an odd place to put this but.
You may notice that the 'Speed' type of Broad sword isn't all that Speedy. I've
noticed it is actually slower the the Hold and Release type of sword. But 
there is a trick you can use to speed the combo up and make it less annoying
to use. When you go to attack Haseo will swing once. Then he will thrust the
sword at which point you smash the X botton to get as many hits as you can.
The problem is Haseo is slow to recover and set up for the next Attack combo. 
So what you do is that as you come to the end of Smashing the X button after
the Thrust, Press the circle button quickly. He'll go into a guard, as soon 
as he guards, let the button go and it sets you up faster for another combo.
Try it and see what I mean.


Rain and Cload:

Being that your level 51 and you just planted all three items, use your
twin swords and beat them to a pulp. When you're done they'll combine into
one big robot. Beat them again and you'll have completed the quest.

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




	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Dol Dona	    -------
	----------------------------
As you finish the quest you see Silabus and Gaspard say good bye. You also see
a scene with Alkaid and Sirius. hmmm, I really like Alkaid. She's sweet, and
she'll be playing a bigger role in this game. hmm...

Afterward, not to do but log-out and check some e-mails.

----------------------------------
-E-mail-  Pi  : AIDA singnals comming from the Holy Palace
Short version: Haseo mentions that Alkaid might know something
about what's going on.

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

----------------------------------
-E-mail-  Silabus  : Tuning up your bike
Short version: Silabus mentions that there is a quests that is related
to you steam bike. He also says that once you do that Quest you can then
do Steam bike missions. The rewards for those missions are in fact rare 
bike parts. This is acctually worth doing and also the Quest related to this
has to be my favorite for the game.....I wont tell you why just yet.
----------------------------------


When your done, log-in.



	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Dol Dona	    -------
	----------------------------

As you log-in Haseo trys to talk with Alkaid. She cuts him off and says
she wants him to go on an adventure with her. She promply pushs the issue by
handing Haseo her member address.....Wait a second, her member adress? 

WHAAOO!!!

That's awsome, you now have a former Emperor's member address, Sweet!
*Does a little victory dance*

Anyway, she gives you some key words....hmmm.

For now, form a party with Alkaid and Gaspard and then head into town.

I suggest stopping by the magic shop and Picking up the following scrolls for
Gaspard: Life scroll, Reflex scroll,Repeal Scroll, Vitality Scroll.

When you have them, head for the Chaos Gate. Before you leave make sure to 
save, and use those new scrolls on Gaspard.

Ok, now we're set.

This place is more or less straight forward. All you go to do is head
for the Beast Statue. That's it, nothing special, just head to the beast
statue to trigger the next event. well, since that is so intresting I'll
take a nap and wake me up when you get there...........








well then, now that your at the beasty statue, watch the scenes and enjoy.
and believe me there is a pretty good number of them.

When it's all done with, grab the treasure and head back to town.


	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Dol Dona	    -------
	----------------------------

when you get back Haseo says he'll help Alkaid....wait a second. That
means we're going to have to fight through ANOTHER Tourtament!?  



.......Great.

Don't worry, this time around won't be nearly as hard as last time.
Looks like you need to go register. Head for the Arena



	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Lumina Cloth	    -------
	----------------------------

when you arrive, head to the Arena Counter and register for the Tounament. This
is both good news and bad news. Good news is that because you are a Demon 
Palace Emperor you will not have to earn your way into the rankings. The Bad 
news is that you must give up the thrown of the Demon Palace in order to 
challenge the Holy Palace. 

But that's not really terribly bad news anyway. It's not like you would have 
been able to keep your the title away way. I mean your level 51-53ish. As soon
as another team would have challenged you for the Thrown you would have had
to give it up because your level is higher then allowed....but thats just a
guess.

At any rate, it's time to challenge the next batch of Arena rankers. So finish
signing up for the tournament and watch the scenes that follow.




So anyway, I love how Haseo can just Tell when he's got new e-mails. He must
have special mental powers or something. hehe. So yeah, how about you got to
love Alkaid. I mean she was kinda a...... well brat in the first game, but I
got to tell you that I really like Alkaid's character. Honestly I think her 
and Haseo should get together......but that's just me. Poor Haseo, so many
girls and only so much of him to share, lol.

Afterward not to do but log-out.

----------------------------------
-E-mail-  CC Corp  : Tournament Participation
Short version: For some reason they didn't get the message that you want to
take part in the tournament and they want you to go fill out some more paper
work at the Arena Counter....great.
----------------------------------

----------------------------------
-E-mail-  Silabus : Have you Tried Crimsion VS
Short version: Just reminding you that the game is open now and ready to play.
speaking of which I'd say it's time to check how well you've done.
----------------------------------


----------------------------------
-Crimson VS-     
Short version: Check your rank, if you have more losses then
wins you need to redo how your deck is set up. Really its hard for
me to give you advice on card set ups becuase the more battles you win
the more cards you get through random selection. So until you have
pratically all the cards you can get, I really can't do much other
then give you general advice. So here goes:
-A) General cards that have high HP or high AP aren't always the best ones
to use. The best General Cards are ones with High Charisma and with avarage
HP and AP.
-B) Cards that add AP or HP onto you General's stats every round are the
best ones you can use.
-C) USE THE PRATICE BATTLE!! Toy around with it and figure out what 
combinations of cards work and which ones don't.
-D) View the Battle log. It WILL teach you alot about how the battles run.
Make sure to note what Cards the enemy uses and how they use them.

Other then that I Won't be able to say alot for now. Good luck.
----------------------------------

Well..... Time to Log-in


	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Lumina Cloth	    -------
	----------------------------

Watch some scenes with Pi. Then later,Head for the Arena Counter.
Do what you need to do there. Watch some more scenes. They're very...touching.
I'd say some of the peices of the plot are starting to fall in place. Also
looks like Atoli will be joining you on the Tournament team. Good thing too.
It would have been a pain without a Cleric for healing. And yet again Haseo
amazes me with his ability to tell that he has new e-mails.


----------------------------------
-E-mail- Alkaid   : you'd better invite me soon
Short version: She wants you to go on a quest with her.
Sounds fun.
----------------------------------

Some stuff in the news and Forums.


----------------------------------
-Forums-    : 
Short version: You'll find some advice about crimsion VS. It's good stuff,
I'd take time to read it. Also Some pics in the Apkallu.
----------------------------------

----------------------------------
-News-    : 
Short version: Some stuff about another online game.
Some stuff about 'real life' card games, and some other junk.
----------------------------------

Ok, time to log-in.


	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Lumina Cloth	    -------
	----------------------------
Haseo mentions Alkaid wants to hang out for a bit. Well, lets head to Dol Dana.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Dol Dona	    -------
	----------------------------

Now then. Go form a party with Alkaid and Gaspard. As you head into the towns
main square, make sure to visit Canard's shop now that you're based out of 
Dol Dana. Gaspard should have some cash for you from selling items you should
have been giving him.....you were making sure to give him stuff to sell right?
Well if you were smart,that cash will be helpful. Also I should mention. Alkaid
have a very very very nice level 93 scythe. I HIGHLY recomend trading with 
Alkaid for this weapon. And if you want to do that, do it soon. DO NOT wait. =)

Well now, head for the quest shop and accept the new quest.

OH YEAH! I forgot to mention. For those of us .hack vetrans who survived the
pains of the last set of games. You will, of course, remember the Gold Goblins
and their some what annoying games of tag they liked to play. Yes, I know
what your thinking, and yes they are back again. BUT! There's great news!
You face them in a quest this time. AND, it is really fun. See this quest
is the start of the Bike Missions. I love the creators of this game. See they
brought back two aspects of the old games and made them better then before by
combinding them together. 1) they brought back the Gold Goblins. and 2) they
replaced the grunty races with Bike Missions, both of which are FUN! .......
.......at least I think so, and that's saying quite a bit there.

So at any rate you can either chose to do the quest with Alkaid or chose
to do the Goblin Quest. I suggest you hold off on the Goblins for right now.
But don't worry, We WILL be comming back to finish that quest, and yes I will
include it in the main flow of the guide unlike how I did it in the last game's
guide.

Go to the Quest shop and accept the quest then head out.



---------------------------( Quest )---------------------------
-----2) The Cat Smiles Silently
	----------------------------
------- 9)Standing, Calming, Western (Q) -------
	----------------------------
Area Type:Field
Area Level: 50
Party: Haseo,Alkaid, Gaspard.
My Level:53

As you enter the area you get pwned by the White Malice Cat. Which
kinda sucks. I mean you HP has been cut in half. So really the trick to
this area is not fighting as much as possible. Use your steam bike to
get around quickly. If you look at the map you will notice that the area
is set up in more or less a straight line. At the end you will see a hill
that does not have an alter on top, this hill is where the Malice cat is 
located. Now go and get there. Also, you'll probably have to fight at least
the party of monsters guarding the hill.

When you get there get ready to kick. This thing is fast. Try to get it 
cornered, and give it three kicks in a row. It will yield and you will
finish the quest and get a text of power.

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

Afterward Alkaid will say good bye after calling Haseo a
"low life cheating B**tard." Got to love her.

For now, Log-out.





----------------------------------
-E-mail-  Atoli  : To Canard

Head to the Guild's @home and watch some scenes take place.


Afterward you get an e-mail, you know what to do.....

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

Add Alkaid and Atoli to your Parties. Now before you go running off
to the arena take a minute and think about this. Remember the last game?
I had you doing alot of something. It was very important.......

LEVELING UP!

That's right, I want you to take Atoli and Alkaid out and level up.
But before we do that. Remember all of those Begginer Texts/Books? well I
want you to get them out of storage and I want you to use them. The reason
I had you hold off was because I knew Atoli and Alkaid whould be joining you
in the arena, and so it only makes sence that you use those items with them
around as well. Thats way when you use the Beginner's Book, they will gain
skill levels too. Note that you need to be near the chaos gate when you use 
these and not in the town for some reason. Something to do with the programming
of the game's code. *Shrugs*

Also, don't forget that you only get 2 arts per weapon this game,
so what ever you do, DO NOT forget to switch your weapons once you
finish with one of the types:

-Weapon type---:------- Arts-----:-Skill level--

Duel Swords    :    Whirlwind    : 11
               : Chaotic Strike  : 14

Broad Sword:   : Tiger Strike    : 12
	       : Shell Breaker   : 15

What you want to do is use 20 of your 22 Begginer's Text/Books and raise your
skill level to 15 for both weapon types, save the last two for later.
Now then, you should have all the arts for your Broad sword and Dual Sowrds.
Once you get your next job extension your skill level with your scythe with
be level 15, and you will have most if not all of your arts. I personally
took enough time to get some extra items so that I got both of my weapons
to skill level 15 and had some extra oncs left over.

Well now, with that done the next thing on the to-do list is equipment and
skills duty for Atoli

Here's just a general list of stuff to buy.

With all of that done it's time to head out and level up a bit.


	----------------------------
-Random) Buzzing, Corpse's, Western -------
	----------------------------
Area Type: Field
Area Level: 55
Party:Haseo,Atoli, alkaid
My Level:53


As you enter the Field, I want to mention that your new arts are useless
to you unless you add them to the Skill trigger. Note that the new arts are
noticable longer combos then the older arts. This will probably take some
getting use to. For now I will just list my arts set up on my skill trigger.

-Duel Swords- 

Triangle: Chaotic Strike (new)
Circle: Sword Dance
X: Whril Wind (new)
Square: Tri-Strike

-Broad sword-

Triangle: Twin Moons
Circle: Bone Crusher
X: Tiger Strike (New)
Square: Shell Breaker (New)

Really is doesn't matter what button you asign to which
skill. But being the way my mind works I just found it easy to
set it up like this:
Triangle=Aerial attacks
Circle= Area attacks/circle pattern
X=quick/slashing combos
Square= Peirce

But again, that's just me. You can do it anyway you like.....unless I tell you
differently.

Complete the area then head back.

Congrats, Haseo should be around level 55 with Alkaid and Atoli about 
level....ooohh, say 53. Re-stock the guild shop,then Time to head over to the
arena for the first match. It's nothing to worry about, honest. So really,
don't be nervous.

-Opponets: HIROSAWA (50),ca-ge (50), kenta (50)
-Before the fight advice: 

Not alot to say, also I should note that my
usefulness will be limited in this game due to the fact that the game will
now give you advice on the match by viewing the opponent info. So all I can 
do is try and point out stuff they didn't mention and hope it helps.

But, for this round all I'll say is this: You're stronger and smarter then they
are, it would be hard to lose. Good luck, see ya later.

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

Well now, after ward you see some scenes, I think it's prety obvious who Sakaki
is talking to.....but she's different now isn't she? Anyway, at this point I
think it's rather obvious that Sakaki is a low life and that he's planning
something shaddy considering he's ranting about being chosen by AIDA.
......I guess he learned well from his master.....

Afterward, log-out.

At anyrate, what you need to do is first use a fairy orb to see where your
going. As you look at the map you will note the first floor is split into
three sections, you need to follow each path and warp to the next section
via warp point. Just continue this till you get to B2. Also, in additon
to needing to use the warp points, there are special doors along the way
that will test you knowledge on how well you've paid attention to the
back story of the game; if you answer the questions wronge you will lose
chim spheres. But considering that you're reading this guide
I'm willing to beat you just want me to give you the answeres. 
.........So I will.

The first talking door you come to will ask you these questions:
(Note that as far as I can tell the questions are always from the
same doors everytime you play the game. But I'm just saying now
incase they really are random.)

Funny scenes between the party as you enter.

This area is a collection mission. Head west while stopping to open
the treasue chests along the way. About half way to the second
chest there's a warp point. Use it to warp to the next area.

Head along the canyon wall to the next chest and also the next warp point.

One last chest and one last warp point.
Finially, you reach the beast statue. Get it and head back.

-------Town:	 Dol Dona	    -------
	----------------------------


When you get back everyone says good bye and they head out leaving you alone.
Well, what better time then now to cover the bike missions? Or at least the 
first one anyway.

First, head over to see Kafu near the @home. He should be right across from the
warp point. Read what he has to say, then head back to the Chaos Gate.

Open the warp menu, Now set the first part word to 'Passing'.
Now depending on the combinatione of words after that you will get
different types of areas, if you look to see what the Misson for the area
is it will say this: "Bike Mission (Course #)"  There are five different
courses. The should be done in a certian order becuase of the level of
difficulty. The order is 4, 3, 5, 1, 2. 
1: Pker attacking player
2: Monsters attacking player

Less likly but will still happen->
3: Black list pker attacking player

See 1 and 2 are the most likly what you will find
every time you enter the battle area. However if you keep
going back over and over, eventually you will be able to
find and kill all 7 black list pkers.

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




well thats it for Quests Champaigns. Personally I ussally
dont even finish most of them. Just enough to get the special
items from them, in order to just barly get my guild rank up.





========================================================
		---------------
---------------- 4)HIDDEN QUEST ---------------
		---------------
========================================================


Also Known as the Abyss Quest. This is the 2nd and finial part
of this quest.

Many people from the older games may or may not remember the bonus
dungeons. They ussally involved warping to an area, getting through a
dungeon and then finially beating a finial boss. This was done after
the game was completed and could only be done then.

I remember some of those old bosses, and Most of them were harder 
to beat then anything that's been thrown at me in this series....except
for maybe the Azure Flame god.....maybe. 
Although I have to say this is not an easy boss by any means.
Even if you go prepared you will more than likly still have
a tough fight ahaed of you. Granted this is not as bad as
Sephiroth from Kingdom Hearts II. But I'd say its the next hardest thing.

This time around the game creators have included a new type of 
bonus mission. Really it's almost more of a side plot then an 
actual bonus dungeon. But none the less, I found it enjoyable.

----Getting started:

You may remember near the begining of the game that there was a topic
on the Bords about a really odd NPC character someone saw in a dungeon.
That's where this all starts.

Save First.

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


Before you head off, read about the preparations first.


ALSO! Before you accept this quest I should comment
on the party members you take with you. 
Atoli is amlost an absolute must. Healing will be critical
for this quest and Atoli is the best healer you could have.
Second. I split my opinion between Kuhn and gayros th...Opps, I mean
Piros the 3rd.

Personally I hate Piros, but I can't deny one simple fact. Lord Partizans
Lances are desiged for breaking through armor. And this fight depends greatly
on being able to do just that (as you will see with my equipment set up)

So the choice is up to you, I used Kuhn for this mission the first time I did
it, but thats just me. I going to save and use both Piros and Kuhn and see what
the difference between them is on how well they did in the fight.


---------------------
Preparations:
---------------------

Ok, you my friend are going to really have to
prepare yourself. 

1: I'm going to do this fight at level 95. However if you feel
that being level 100 is a good idea. Then go for it. You'll need
to reach level 100 to do the second part of the quest anyway. But
if you want to do THIS part right now, then I'm not stopping you.
You will however need to be level 92 AT LEAST. NO LESS.

2: You need to find yourself some weapons and customize them
specifically for these up comming fights.

----First go to the Dol Dona Junk shop near the Guild's @home and buy
these weapons materials: Dark Attack x2, and Light Attack x2.


You will also need: Nutcracker (armor peirce) x2, and Shark Tooth x2
(+25% crit. hit)
-Nutcracker: Trade with Sagittarius Crush Sheaf and un-customize it. I know
it might seem like a pain, but this is the fastest way to get them. And you
only need two of them anyway.
-SharkTooth: Dropped by Solid Eye 



----You will also need the following Weapons:
Broad Fenlong x2 -Are droped by Grimmik Tourchs, lvl 90-93 areas
Spin Heaven x2 -Dropped by Massacre Mummy –(Galloping, Swift, Two Wings)


--You need to Customize your weapons like this:

Spin Heaven: Light Attack and +25% Crit. Hit
Spin Heaven: Dark Attack and +25% crit. Hit

Broad Fenlong: Light Attack and Armor peirce
Broad Fenlong: Dark Attack and Armor peirce

As for the Scythe I'd just take Ticking Death.

These weapons will be key to beating the upcomming
boss.

3: skill trigger

You're going to need to the following skills set to your skill trigger.

X: Whril Wind
O: Reaper's Touch
Sruare: Schell Breaker
Tri-Angle: Chaotic Strike


4: Atoli needs at least 40 of all the following Items.


Health Drink
Healing Serum
Healing Potion
Sprite Drop
Fairy Drop
Antidote Soda
Blessing Soda
Stimulant Soda
Solution Soda
Esthesio Soda
Revival Medicine


And any other odd and end healing
items (you dont have 40 of)you come across,
That you think might help.




After all of that, Make sure to save, 
accept the quest ,and then head to the area.


-----9) Invasion of super Beings
	----------------------------
-------  Clouding, Invincible, Huge Being(H.Q.)  -------
	----------------------------
Area Type: Jungel Cave
Area Level:87
Party: Haseo, Kuhn, Atoli
My Level: 95

I don't know why they had to name this quest that.....
Even I could have come up with a better name, "Shrugs".


Unlike the other dungeons, this one is not short.

B1: Just head for the next floor as fast as you can.

As you start off you will meet a lovly boss monster:
Titan Dead. You can beat him. It's good pratice for
what's comming up next.

B2: Just head from west to East. At the far end at the 
dead end you will see the scenes that lead to a Boss fight.

--------Returning, Invincible, Huge Being-------

As you enter the area, which is the Dark version of

scenes and then.......



The Return of 'THE ONE SIN'.




Pause the game for a second and allow me explain what's going
on to those who didn't have the chance to play the original
series.

-------------------
Vetran gamers of .hack will proabaly reconize this name
quickly. 

Back in the days of "The World R1":
The story goes that CC corp. celebrated the release of "The World" with
an event called "The One Sin".  Thousands of players attempted the 
event and all failed. The Monster was said to be unbeatable. People
were beginning to think that no one would ever clear it. 

Then two players joined together and formed a party. Two Blade Masters
(As the class was called back then). And together they fought and an incredible
battle against this unbeatable monster. And at the end of the day they stood
victorious. 

Afterward players in "The World" would refer to them as 
Orca of the Azure Sea and Bulmung of the Azure Sky; 

The Descendants of Fianna.

They had earned their title and rank as the two strongest
players of 'The World'.

In fact they would hold that Title until Kite came along...
(Main character of original series)

Anyway, As you will find out with this Monster, this version
of 'The One Sin' isn't even close to being as hard as the original
from the R1 days. And this One Sin is far from unbeatable.
-----------------------------




-----------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT!: The One Sin
My Level: 95

Enemy Attacks: Ground Pound. It will strike the ground and spikes of
Ice looking crystal will pop up in different places.

Energy Ball. It will pull back it's fist and charge a big ball
of Red and Black energy in it's hand and then Smash it in the ground near
the middle. Just run away and Hold L1 to call your friends over till
it's safe.

Evergy Blast: After you break it's armor and you start killing it.
After awhile it will regenerate it's armor again. When it's about to do
this it will charge an attack, RUN! and Call your friends over to one
side or the other. Becasue you dont want caught in the Death Star blast
that it will give you point blank in the face. 


Stragedy:

See, it's a good thing I had you get all those weapon materials.
Ok, The One Sin will change back and forth between ligh and dark elements.
The idea is to attack with the oppisite element. You will know it is light
element whne it's realative color is blue; you will know it's dark when it
turns a dark purple color.

Step 1: Use your broad sword with the oppisite element (Change Equipment if
you need and when you need to as The One Sin changes Elements)

You can attack it's right and left arms. The arms contian the Armor Value
on it's health bar and they both share it. So you don't have to destroy
the armor seperatly for the arms. I suggest using your Schell Breaker
Broad Sword Skill.

Step 2: Once you destroy the armor you can then
attack it's Body in the middle which will lower it's HP. Use the Twin Swords
with the Oppisite Element. I suggest using Chaotic Strike as much as possible.

Also, when you see the One Sin start to charge up an attack, RUN. And press
and hold L1 to call your allies out of the line of fire.

Note: DO NOT use Divine Awakening (Plasma Blade) When the One Sin is in Light
element. Only use it when it is set to Dark element. Other wise you'll just 
heal the dang thing instead of hurting it.
-----------------------------------------------

Well, when that's over you will recive the    A level 90 Accessory. It's 
really a pretty good item if you plan on going rare itme hunting. Or you
just want to earn a bunch of cash.

Watch the scenes, and enjoy.

Afterward you will report in and get some more rewards. YAY!


Hmmmm, thats odd, you just got an e-mail. Time to check it out.

----------------------------------
-E-mail-  cc Corp.  : Return of the One Sin
Short version: SAY WHAT!!! yes, thats right. It's back
yet again. and this time it's bigger and bader then ever.
The E-mail notes that this is " The World's Most Powerfull enemy."
----------------------------------

It's may be that hard and tough, but it is far from being the strongest
or hardest boss of ANY video game, case and point:






---------------
The is a super boss from the game Finial Fantasy 12 (As in a different 
game then you are playing right now), I think it maybe the hardest boss
of any PS2 game to date. Don't quote me on that as this is really a 
matter of opinion.

---------------
Finial Fantasy-XII Supper Boss:

>
Lv : 73             
HP : 50,112,254

Yes that is over 50 Million HP and considering that even at your
best attack you can only do 9,999 damage at a time.
The battle takes over 5 hours, and if you fight this guy out right
the normal way you will die.
The people who made FF-XII are insane.

--Note: This is just a friendly comparasion between the One Sin
and the Yiazmat. You don't actually fight the Yiazmat in this game.
And yes I got an e-mail from someone who read this section kinda fast
and didn't realize that.
-----------------



Lol, One Sin looks more like a little kitten compared to the Yiazamt.
(Matter of opinion)



But anyway, time to attempt the second part of this little adventure.
Save First.
Log-in and get ready to fight a long and tough battle.

	----------------------------
-------Town:	 Dol Dona	    -------
	----------------------------

I suggest that you get all party members to level 100 as this
will not be an easy fight.

Restock Atoli's supply of healing items.
And get the best armor and equipment you can find as you should
now be level 100.

	----------------------------
------- Returning, Invincilbe, Huge Being-------
	----------------------------
Area Type: Lost Grounds/Landscape
Area Level: None
Party: Haseo, Atoli, Kuhn
My Level: 100

Use same equipment and same stragedy.

Also, If you're insane and looking for a good challenge. Do this fight
solo and at level 95. =P

Also, for this fight it's not a bad idea to boost your stats with
spells before you start the fight.

-----------------------------------
BOSS FIGHT!: The God Eater

---It's pretty much the same as last time. Main diference is that this
battle will be ALOT longer and harder. Have fun.

When you finish you will get a the best armor in Vol. 2
It's level 100 and is customized with -25% damage for all attacks.
Rather usefull.

Well congrats my friend, you have completed the Hidden Quest for
vol. 2; //Reminisce.

Well I Suggest you look at the rest of the sections in my guide as
I'm sure they may prove usefull to you. And Enjoy, and you can see my
final parting comments at the bottem of the guide.

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











		---------------
---------------- 5)Doppleganger ---------------
		---------------

This is just a quick section for the Doppleganger: What is it? 
Why should I care? What's in it for me? Est.


The Doppleganger is a rare monster that looks like an evil version of Haseo.
This monster is very strong and is ALWAYS 8 levels higher then you. Even if
you reach the Level 100 cap he will still be 8 levels higher then you.(lvl 108)

And to verify that information I have friends who like to Code Break games.
AKA they like to put it on their computers and mess with the game programming
to see if they can cheat. They're the ones who found out that the Doppleganger
is always 8 levels higher then you REGARDLESS of level cap. Anyway...


Now before you start to pea your pants or the oppisite and you think you can 
take him. I should tell you that he is by far the HARDEST monster to beat if
you try to beat him in a straight forward fight. In fact I almost dont think
it can be done. That's why we have to cheat a little.



---To find him you should follow this stragedy:

Go to an open Field area. Kill enough monsters to fill your Moral Guage, save 
the Awankening and don't use it. Stand still and do nothing for about 10
minutes, give or  take some. I highly suggest killing all monsters in the field
while doing this.

Then after you've waited for about 7-10 minutes start walking around the field.

You will start to see a red arrow much like the ones that show where an enemy 
party of monsters are. However, this arrow points to Doppleganger. 

It's rare, 
but  after ten minutes if he still hasn't shown up, just continue to walk
around the field until you find him. See he warps from place to place in the
field as to increase the chance of running into you.....

You'll know it's him when the edges of the screne turn red and 
the creepy music starts playing in the back ground.

Here's how I beat him.


--Stragedy 1: I suprised attacked him then:
After I built up the moral guage I used Divine Awakening on him. 
Then beat the poop out of him, then I just finished him off.
However, if you find that you can't finish him off quickly enough, and
he starts to regenerate health too quickly: build the moral guage back up
by getting Rengeki attacks in on him and let him have Divine Awakening again.
Hopefully you will be able to hold his HP at the same level until you can
trigger the Awakening again.


--Stragedy 2: You can either do this right after you get Haseo's 3rd form
or wait until the end of the game and level up to lvl 100.

Here's the steps to go through to do this:

--!! Haseo MUST have his 3rd form and there for Divine Awakening 
to be able to do this.

1-complete the The Cat Smiles Silently quests and begin the quest's
Champaign. This will give you the lucky animal radar.

2- Go to the item shop and buy about 20 smoke screnes.

3- Go to a Field type area and check to see if there is a Sleipnir lucky 
animal there. Make sure the area is a high enough level so that you will
be able to build up the moral guage.

4- Go through the Field and kill all the monsters while building the Moral
Guage up. Make sure not to use it just yet.

5-After the Field is cleared of monsters, go and kick the Sleipnir lucky 
animal, once that's done stand still and wait about 8 minutes for the 
Doppleganger to show up.

6- Attack the Doppleganger. The Sleipnir will come to your aid and attack
which will cut the Doppleganger's HP in half. Then Quickly use a smoke screne.
Run away just long enough so your out of sight from the Doppleganger. Then 
attack again. The Sleipnir again will cut the Doppleganger's HP in half.
Do this two or three more time. Finially, use your Divine Awakening and it
should KO the Doppleganager. This will render it's Twin Swords and Broad sword
the first time, and if you defeat him again you will get his scythe.
I repeat. You have to kill him 2 times total to get all his weapons.



Tips and tricks:
!!!!- What ever you do, DO NOT let him attack you while engaged in a 
fight with normal Monsters. He can walk into a battle area then you'd be dead.

It took me like 20 minutes to track him down and kill him. Anyway, thats how I
do it.  Good luck.

Rewards:

Reason for doing this?

Because if you beat him twice (2 times) you can get his broad sword,
twin swords, and his scythe. These weapons are level 50 BUT they are
the strongest weapons in Vol. 2!!!!

Also, you will get two key items that will alow you to gain the Doppleganager
weapons in vol 3.

Congrats, thats it.

=============================================================================
The following section WAS NOT written by myself. This is a collection of 
information that was gathered from two differnet sources. One is from the 
Vol. 2 Guide written By Zer0 and the people at www.dothackers.net and the
other source is from a guide for vol 2 written by playboyskitch. I here by
give the full credit for the information to those two people. All that I have
done in this guide is simply re-organized some of the information to better
suit this guide: An example of this is using item names from Zer0's guide
and and getting the levels of equipment from playboyskitch's guide.

Again I did NOT get this information by myself, so credit to them.
The ONLY thing I did was organize it into this section for the Books
of 1000.


 (See bottom of this section for credits)
=============================================================================

----Ryu Book 1 - Battles

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

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


----Ryu Book 2 - Trades

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

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


----Ryu Book 3 - Treasures

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

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


----Ryu Book 4 - Items

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

Strategy: Use the Item/Equipment List 




----- a)Lucky Animals



---------------------
----Lucky Animals----
---------------------
Also I want to insert a section on how to find all the lucky animals
for the Lucky Animal Campaign. The reason is because it's hard to
find them all and you need to do that to be able to get several items,
armor, and or accessories.

See the lucky animals are alot harder to find in this game. They are no
longer set to one area. EX) IF you go to an area and find say a Gold Bird
is there, there will always be a Gold Bird in that area from then on.

Not so with Vol. 2

Now the lucky animals are based on your partie's average level compared to
the level of the area you are in. The top value along this chart is the
last digit of your party's average level. The Value on the side is the last
digit of the area level. The lucky animal that will be in the area is
determined where those two digits cross in the chart, kinda like the game
Battle Ship. =P

Anyway here's the link to the Chart.
http://i63.photobucket.com/albums/h157/ZeroTheBurninator/walkthrough/lucki.png



This is a chart that allows you to do things the hard way, and Unfortunitly I
found it rather hard to understand and use. There is a better
way but you have to wait till you're level 100. 

Stragedy: Level all your party members to level 100. Then go to Mac Anu.
Go to areas that are level 1-10. The lucky animals on the chart will be there.

3 entries, just warp to different types of places.

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

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

----Ryu Book 8 - Drive Time

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

Strategy: Get on your bike, then ride around the town. Or leave your PS2 on
overnight while on your bike. Maybe tape a penny to the controler so Haseo
is moving around and so it counts the time. (It wont count if he's sitting 
still on the bike)

---------------- Frequently Asked Questions ---------------
	        -----------------------------


Being that this IS a FAQS/ Walktrough guide I thought that after geting
several e-mails I would put together a little Q and A section to put into
my guides from the series. In here you'll find all the questions that have
come up from the e-mails I've gotten from people. I really enjoy doing
what I can to give you good info. and I love hearing from everyone.
(Even if it's just to tell me what you thought of the guide/guides)
So I hope this might give you all some good advice.

--------------------------------------------
-- 1)Technical/Game Play/Story Line Questions
--------------------------------------------




-----
--- A)Questions for All 3 Games:
-----

-1) Can't stop Sp Draining
Q: My SP goes down by one like every second and I can't make it stop! It only
does it when I'm in a field or dungeon, not a town. Can you tell me what I'm
supposed to do??

A:If it keeps happening over and over again no matter what; my guess is that
you should check your armor Materials. You know, the items you use to 
customize armor? Check it. My guess is that you have an item called 
Spirt Tree Bud.
That item (Armor Material)has an intresting affect: It will decrease
your skill points over time  but the benifiet is that it will increase 
Haseo's stats as the Sp is consumed.


-2) How to get Keywords
Q:I want to ask you how to get (Blank) area words?

A: There are only three ways to get keywords. Some are
more common then others. 1-you will get keywords from Story line events.
2- you can get keywords from topics on the Forums and Official Forums, you
can only get certian ones this way. 3- lastly you will get key words as
rewards for getting B, A,or S rankings when leaving an area. These are
random and tend to be harder to get. Just try to do well everytime you
go to an area and you should be albe to earn alot of them.


-3) Job Extensions
Q: When can Haseo start using other weapons besides dual swords? And
How do I unlock them?

A: Ok. A Common Question for rookies to the series.
These are the weapons Haseo can use:
-Twin Swords- Default weapon.
-Broad Sword- Job Extension right before 1st round of the Demon Palace
tounament. 
-Scythe- Job Extension near the begining of Vol 2.
-Dual Guns- Ahhhhh not aloud to say how he got it, but
basicly it's near the middle/end of Vol 3.

-4) Books of 1000
Q:Can I complete the missing things from the book of 1000 from vol 1 in vol 2?

A: Yes, to some extent. See 99% of the books can be done in any of the 
volumes. However, Quest Champaigns is where the problem is. You get
special rewards for doing the Champaigns: Special Armor, Accessories, and once
in awhile Weapoms. The problem is that ALL Champaigns from the quests in vol 1
end/become unavakible at the begining of vol 2. And ALL Champaigns from Vol 2
end at the Begining of Vol 3. So you lose the chance to get those items. The
best thing to do is just max the limit on the book for item collection before
you play the next volume. The only other thing I can think of is that you
should complete the Hidden quest for Vol 2 before playing vol 3.




------
--- B)Questions for Vol 1:
------


-1) Bounty Hunter/Ripper's Blades
Q:How do you get the Ripper blades.

A: First off the bounty hunter quest becomes avalible as the story progresses.
It's called "Hunter's Test". Once you clear this quest you can't start the
Champaign. You need to log-out and then log back in before you can find the
NPC in the back ally of Mac Anu in the mercenary district. For more info. see
the Quest section of my guide for Vol 1.


-----
--- C)Questions for Vol 2:
-----



-1) Doppleganger's weapons
Q:I had a problem with doppleganger. I was level 100 and had the key item
"own king" from vol. 1 and I was able to defeat him but he just gave me 
the two weapons (dual sword and broad) and only one key item. 
Could please tell me why I couldn't get the scythe and the other key item?

A: It's really quit simple. The answer is: Go beat him again. 
Yes that is right. You need to defeat him twice (2 times)
in order to get all three weapons and the both key items.


-2) Crimson VS
Q:I was wondering if you could tell me how to actvate crimson vs.? 

A: Simple. It becomes avalible near the begining of Vol. 2. Just progress the
story line.



-3) Divine Awakening
Q:Does affection something to do with the Divine Awakewnig? how's it work?

A: Yes, it does affect it: When you use Divine Awakening the little marker
starts to scroll across the bottom of the screne. Obviously if you get
it closer to the middle you'll do more damage. There are 3 'Perfect" marks
in the middle of the bar. By Increasing your party member's affection, those
three 'perfect' marks become wider and therefore easier to hit. Therefore
giving you a better chance to do mroe damage. 



-4) Password from Salvador Aihara
Q:When you go to the rumors board and news section you hear some stuff about
Salvador Aihara and that he plays the World. After an annoying chase of
checking the rumor board and logging back in you meet him as his character
Kazubolo “The Last Hope” in Mac Anu’s back ally, where he tells you his
true identity as the famous news reporter, and tells you to keep quiet if
he gives you the Wallpaper and Password: Nurse Carnival. SOOOO…I guess my 
question is, what is the purpose of the password: Nurse Carnival? I know its
not area words cause I checked all 3 sections. 

A:That topic has been discussed several times on the dothackers.net boards.
See we have the privledge of having a few ppl who visit those Forums who
are from Japan and speak english, they've been able to answer several 
questions for us. And as far as any of us can tell the password is useless.
However, I've read in some of the interviews with the game creators that
they are putting bonus material in the GU games just for the North American
versions of the games. So it may or may not have something to do with bonus 
stuff in vol. 3.  But it doesnt seem too likly. If I hear anything I'll put
it in my guide for vol 3.
For now dont worry about it becuase it appears as if the password is
worthless.



------
--- D)Questions for vol 3:
------


1)Final Boss for the Series
Q: Is Ovan the final boss in vol. 3 , if he is not who is the final ? 

A: No, Ovan is not the Final Boss for Vol 3. Although I can see where
you might think that. I mean Corbenick was the final boss of the last series.
But No, The final boss for Vol 3 is bigger, badder, and
generally a whole lot worse the Corbenik (Ovan). 
Who the last boss is exactly, well lets just say that he was a major
enemy from the original series.


2) Last Hidden Quest
Q: Is there hidden quest in vol. 3 and who is the boss ? 

A: Yes there is a Hidden Quest for vol 3. And it's one Haseo has done before. 
(aka he did it before the events of //Rebirth, during //ROOTS Look around on
the rumor's boards and see if you can figure it out) 
And, No: There isn't 1 Boss. Instead there are 11.


3)Hardest Avatar Battle 
Q: What is the hardest avatar battle and the hardest boss you foughtin 
all 3 volumes ?

A: Well, at the moment I havn't played Vol 3. But I'd say it's a tie betten
Azure Flame god and AIDA.

Bandai - For the first four Classic .hack games: They inspired me
to work on my own projects.

BandaiNamco - For the .hack//G.U. games, they are even better then the 
original. And I think the .hack series rivals Final Fantasy
 (*Ducks to aviod being shot by FF fans*)

seires because of the web site you created. And has let me enjoy
the games that have .....consumed so...much of my life.....yeah....  anyway,

Piros The 3rd - I want to say that I hope you die a bloody and gruesome death
at the hands of grunties tearing you limb from limb. =D
