Bonus emails: Select the "Convert" option at the main menu.
Convert the saved game files from .hack//Infection, .hack//Mutation
or .hack//Outbreak to get an email from BlackRose that
was sent to Kite after .hack//Quarantine. Convert a saved
game file from .hack//Quarantine to also get that email
in addition to an email from Hokuto sent to Rena. Note: In the
Japanese version of the game, convert a saved game file from .hack//Fragment
to unlock the email from Hokuto.
Start at level 35: Have a completed saved game file from .hack//G.U.
Vol. 2//Remininsce or .hack//G.U. Vol. 3//Redemption
on your memory card. You will start the game with Haseo at level
35 with appropriate items for that level.
Hint: Alternate Tri-Edge name: If you converted a saved game file from the earlier
. hack games when you fight Tri-Edge at the end, he will
have the name of your character name from the earlier .hack
game. Donny Painter.
Hint: Defating Tri-Edge: Dash rapidly and hit Stun. Be at least level
45 or above. Dennis Delpier.
Hint: Early level up: When you begin as Haseo when he is level one again
(after the events that he fought against Tri-Edge), continue the
story line and train as much as possible. Get to the part where
you can invite Pi and Kuhn to awaken your avatar. You level should
be about 12 or higher. Go to the Chaos Gate but do not go to where
Pi indicated. Instead, type in a random area word that is a level
higher than 15. Train with Pi and Kuhn till at least level 23.
This should also level up your weapon mastery of the Twin Blades
and the affection of Kuhn and Pi. By the time you reach level
23, buy weapons and armor for yourself for later when you are
fighting in the arena. Buy weapons and armor for Pi and Kuhn if
desired. However, this can be a waste of money because they become
will be "busy" for a long time after you complete the
mission they gave you. Anthony Nguyen.
Hint: Easy skills: During the game you may notice that one of the most
difficult things to do is build up is your skill triggers. Normally
you gain more skill if you use your Rengeki on monsters stronger
than you are. However, there are two items that help the process
considerably, the Beginner's Text and Beginner's Book. Beginner
Text increases one targeted characters weapon skill by 50, while
the Beginners Book will increase the weapon skills of all the
members of your group by 50. Note that only the weapon that have
equipped will receive the skill boost. These items are difficult
to find, but there is one person in the game that has a high chance
of having both items upon every encounter, a red harvest cleric
named "Henako". You will need to trade with her to get
the Beginner items, and they are high class rare items so it would
normally take a lot to balance the trade unless you have customize
items. Items like Olm Shell that are used to customize weapons
and/or armor are valuable and can stack up in the trade window
allowing you to trade as many as needed to obtain the Beginner
items. Note that the Book is more valuable than the Text. Henako
will only have these items during the first game and she will
not have them during the second and third games. It would be wise
to stock as many of these Beginner items as you can for later
use. Henako constantly respawns these items after missions, events,
or just adventuring, making it easy to obtain a good supply. Remember
to smash objects in fields or dungeons and you will have all you
need to trade. Stephen Saunders.
Hint: Black Market: Behind the Arena, where you first talk to Endrance,
going farther down towards the other wing, there is a NPC selling
rare items to you for very expensive prices. However, it is worth
it. At the top of the screen, it should read "Black Market"
when you talk to her. Vaxex.
reference: If you talk to a certain character she will tell
you about how the world used to be called Fragment. This a reference
to the japanese game .hack//fragment. Gimping4Him.
Glitch: Free equipment from guild shops:
To do this you must not be able to afford the item
you want. You must, however, be able to afford at least one other
item. You need to have enough GP so that if you used coupons on
the desired item you would be able to afford it. First, start
by selecting a buyable item as if you intended to purchase it.
Then, add enough coupons so that if added towards the desired
item, it would discount enough GP for you to afford it. Cancel
the buy. Next, select the "unaffordable" item you want.
It will appear as though you want to buy 0 of the item. Do not
add coupons and confirm the buy. The item will no longer be in
the shop inventory and will now be in yours. Note: If this trick
is used on consumable items they will not be usable by you. Instead
the consumable item purchased with the above method will only
appear when using any shop's "Sell" option. You will
have 0 of the item but will be able to sell only one, no matter
how many times you "purchased" the consumable before
going to the shop. ChronosTheYautja.
Glitch: Get outside of the Mac Anu lines:
Relog if you are already online, or login if not. Once
you log back in, go outside of the Dome. The building at the end
of the bridge should be gone. If it is, go to the side of the
bridge, but not too close (remember the wall). Once you get there,
either go to the left or right depending what side you are on.
If done correctly, "The World" logo will appear. You
should be outside of the wall. You can now go all the way around
Mac Anu. Be careful not to go too far down by riding the bike
or else you will have to relog.
