.Hack Quarantine - Alternate Items Locations Faq, Version 1.1 Items Completion Contest By Sister Email: sis_cindy@hotmail.com Copyright: April 29, 2005, Cindy Minguez. This faq is mine. If you have a site where you help people for free, go ahead and use it if you like. You don’t have to write me. Just don’t be trying to sell it. It’s free. If you’re making money from it, I expect you to send me my share. Emails: If you find something I haven’t or an error, I’d love for you to let me know. I've been over and over this faq, but I still probably have mistakes. Please let me know if you find one, and I'll try to get it fixed. Please, though, don’t email me pages and pages of locations for items I already have plenty of locations for. Lots of items will be found over and over and over again. Had I listed every location for every item I found, this faq would be 100 pages long. I’ve tried to just offer a variety of options between data draining, dungeon crawling (chest finding), and the Myst Springs. Not to be rude or anything, but I just can't list them all. I’d still love to know where those Leather Legs are. :) Version 1.1 Update: Removed the tabs that scrambled in the first upload and adjusted the spacing to make the guide easier to read. Moved the tips and advice to the bottom. Version 2.1 Update: Corrected mistakes and added a few new locations/recipes. I found those Leather Legs! Hooray! Found Asura, too. Removed optional trades from the lists. Working on more armor recipes for the Myst Springs, but it's gonna take a while. Version 2.2 Update: Added locations for weapons Thunderlord, Oni's Fork, Excalibur, and Jormungand. A huge thanks to TopperCop for these locations! According to Toppercop, you have a one in five chance (20%) of getting the item you're after, so just keep trying. Thanks again, TopperCop! Version 2.5 Update: Received a long list of recipes from Peter W. Many thanks to him for his hard work and for sharing with me. I will include a PW with the info he gave me. Thanks again, Peter! I also heard from toomedieval, who pointed out that I had the data drain entries wrong for Hands of Fire and Hands of Earth and that I skipped the Fairy Spear completely. Thank you, too, for the help! Thanks: Before we get started, I have a few people to thank. Thanks to all of the other faq writers for .Hack who helped me get through this game. Extra thanks to Gamemaster 64, Edible, Alcestis, and Slasher 900, who all helped me at the board. Super humongous thanks to Captain Panda, VeghEsther, and Souten no Blamung for sharing their expertise with me. Another special thanks to Souten no Balmung for his listing of the Gott-only treasures in the secrets section. Thanks, guys. :) New Thanks: Additional thanks to Alcestis, Ringworm, TopperCop, Split Infinity, Masamune3, Thundaka, brian sulpher, and Sunburst for their encouragement and patient advice as I worked to fix this faq. They were a great help to me. Now, on to the business at hand. This faq's purpose isn't to tell you the best way to do the Item Completion Contest. It’s just as its name says - a list of alternatives. You’ve been data draining for a while and need to do a bit of dungeon crawling while Data Drain cools down? Pick an item off the list and go looking while you cool off. Trying to Data Drain a Holy Night for Tenkafuubu and got eleven Water Beasts in a row instead? (ELEVEN!). Maybe you’d find Star Eater more cooperative (he’s got Tenkafuubu, too). You’ve been dungeon crawling and think you’ll try the Myst Springs for a while? I’ll give you the "recipe" for that Flame Leg Mail you need. Seen Monsieur so many times that you want to slap him? I’ll tell you where I found the Heavy Metal you need to Data Drain for those Ronin Blades and maybe save you some of the jillion trips into the monster Ryu book that I made. For tips and advice, see Section II. I'd recommend scanning through it at least once just in case there's something there that might prove helpful. Section I: Items List Abbreviations: DD = Data Drain (always use rare DD 2128 or Drain Heart unless you want Virus Cores) R/R = Risky and/or Regular treasure MS = Myst Spring D = Delta T = Theta L = Lambda S = Sigma O = Omega {DBD} = Data Bug Dungeon * = I’ve only found this item once at this location. If it says “Buy Delta (or Theta, etc.)” – buy it at the weapons shop in that root town. Outside = an enemy or item was found outside in the field. Otherwise, it’s inside the dungeon. NOTE: Always double-check the server designation; I often use the same dungeons in different servers. Another Note: Remember that except for specialty areas (Christmas Card) or storyline dungeons, all Gott chests refill, so if the item you wanted wasn't there, sprite ocarina to the top and go right back down for a new chest. The item you're looking for will eventually appear. Thanks to rpgprincess and Captain Panda at the board for this; apparently I hadn't made it clear. --Items-- Well Water, Burning Oil, etc. - Trade with Wiseman or Black Rose Noble Wine - Trade with Terajima Ryoko or DD The Guardian Everything else can be bought at the various items shops. --Scrolls-- Soul Charm -
