So, I wrote up an initial FAQ, that had to do with everything .hack. Through several versions, I fixed it to where I thought CJayC might be willing to post it. That didn't happen. I figured, maybe it should have only big common questions for the non-game part of .hack. Maybe that would help to get this up. So, I reformatted, removed a lot of questions, and beheld my FAQ. Which there wasn't a lot of left. So I went back to the drawing board, and decided to convert it to a .hack FAQ/Walkthrough. Just one problem: I didn't have the game yet, as it wasn't out in the US. What to do, what to do. Then I heard demos were to be given out to those that preordered. Which I had done, but no demo. So I called, and went to pick it up. The demo covers a large part of the beginning of the game, with nothing disabled in that part save for saving. So I thought it could be a good idea to write part of this Walkthrough based on the demo. This way, people who have trouble on the first day, before I would have had time to get one up otherwise, would be able to find at least some help, without creating questions to clog up the boards. And so, I started playing the demo, with my sister's laptop next to me, typing up a guide as I went, and fixing as I realized things were wrong. And so, the first day of my playing this game was largely for this FAQ. Also to satisfy my fanboy-ism until the game comes out. I've still yet to beat it, and am not entirely sure on where to go next. Once I figure this out, I will work on continuing the Walkthrough. But for those who might like to have it with their demo copy, I submit this now. _______________ |2.0 - Revisions| Version 0.95 - All is new. Not enough for me to say 1.0 yet. Need more Walkthrough information for such, methinks. _________ |3.0 - FAQ| 3.1 - Gameplay Questions 3.101 - "What's the gameplay like?" The gameplay is a sort of mix between Phantasy Star Online and Kingdom Hearts with some Star Ocean 2 thrown in as well (or Secret of Mana if you really need a rough old-school idea). The AI controls your other party members while you control Kite. The game pauses when you bring up the menu, and you're presented with the standard game menu, with options and whatnot. It is indeed a Real-Time battle system, and not turn-based. 3.102 - "How long is the game?" It depends not only on how fast you are, but also how into sidequests you are. Some have reportedly beaten it in about 15 hours, I've heard others taking as long as 30. 3.103 - "OMG, dude. Is this game online?" -_- No, it is not online. The game is a simulation of an MMORPG. Meaning you control the guy controlling Kite in The World. Your character is in an MMORPG, but you are not. Sorta confusing at first, I guess. Seems that way, since so many people don't get it anyway. 3.104 - "What's data draining?" Data draining is an ability Kite obtains near the beginning of the game. When you fight monsters down to a certain HP, you will see a "Protect Break". When this happens, you can data drain the enemy. When you do so, it turns them into a lesser monster, that's easy to kill, but gives minimal experience. Doing this you can obtain rare items and virus cores. On the other hand, various negative effects can also occurs, such as cutting your HP in half, or giving you a System Error and Game Over.. It's risky. 3.105 - "Then what are virus cores?" You use virus cores for Kite's special ability, Gate Hacking. You use them to infect the code and allow you access to fields you are trying to access. 3.106 - "And fields are...?" Fields are where the dungeons live. There is also a spring in which you can throw items. Monsieur or Grandpa will pop up, and ask what you lost. You'll then get an item back. Maybe better, maybe not. 3.107 - "How do I get to fields?" In towns, there is something called a Chaos Gate. You go here to access fields. You can either go to one you've heard about in BBS or email, go to other server, or create other dungeons using 3 keywords. 3.108 - "Do I need a Network Adapter for my PS2 to play?" Well, you can get one for the game if you really want, but since the game's not online, it's not really needed... at all... for anything. Really. 3.109 - "What's the character system like?" There are some required characters, but about as many optional. You can get them by going to their dungeons if you choose. Later, they might email you and ask to go with them to certain other dungeons. Of course, it's optional, but you can often get rare items there. Sometimes, you will have to take certain characters to story dungeons. When this happens, the others just happen to not be online. Convenient, huh? There are also some solo dungeons that Kite has to go alone. 3.2 - .hack Game Questions 3.201 - "When do the games come out?" The first game, Infection, comes out in February 2003. The second is in May, the third in August, and the fourth November. (3 months apart) Though, I wouldn't put it past Bandai to make a special edition with all four, the OVA's, and something special thrown in to suck away at our money some more. 3.402 - "Who's this Kite guy? I thought Tsukasa was the main character?" Tsukasa is not the main character. Nor is he a party member (unless for some reason he is in vol. 4). Nor are Mimiru, Bear, Subaru, Sora, Ginkan, or Krim. They are just not here for the games. However, some of the characters do make cameos in vol. 3, and possibly 4 (it's not out even in Japan yet, so I don't know for sure). 3.203 - "But... but why?" Because they had their story already! >_< Stop wanting them in Infection. Just watch .hack//SIGN if you want them, ok? 3.204 - "Is this game cel-shaded? That would ruin the game. I don't wanna buy it if it's cel-shaded." Shut up. 3.205 - "Should I get this game or <Star Ocean 3 / Xenosaga / Final Fantasy X-2 / Other game>?" That's your choice. If you let others dictate what kind of games you play, you need to stop. Play games because you want to, not because others tell you to. 3.206 - "What is the plot?" Basically, your friend Orca invites you to play The World with him. When you get in and are playing, he gets data drained. You soon after obtain this ability, but discover Orca has fallen into a coma in real life. You set out to find out the answers, feeling they can be found in the game. 3.207 - "Are there plans for other .hack games than the 4 out now/soon?" ... Apparently. According to Famitsu Weekly (translated by RPG Fan), "Bandai's Shin Unozawa said his company has plans to develop a follow-up to its popular Project .hack series of PlayStation 2 RPGs." 3.208 - "Why do Tsukasa, Mimiru, and Bear go by different names in the games?" Because those aren't them as the main characters in the games. They are Elk, Black Rose, and Orca respectively. It's an MMORPG, people can look basically the same. Besides, can't you tell the differences? They're not exactly minor, really. Well, a lot aren't, anyway. 3.209 - "Is there voice acting in the game?" Aye. You can select either English voices, or Japanese subtitled in English. Or, if you want, Japanese without subtitles. Though if you wanted that, you could just import the JP game... 3.210 - "What's parody mode?" Parody mode is unlocked after you beat the game. It allows you to play through making the game more humorous, basically becoming satire. I'm sure it'll be quite fun if it makes it stateside (there's a chance it was replaced with dual language... or at least will be later on in the series... :-/) 3.3 - .hack//Liminality (OVA) Questions 3.301 - "So the games come with .hack//SIGN DVD's?" No. The games come with OVA's, with the title of .hack//Liminality. They feature the real-world happenings during the events of the games (OVA 1 during vol. 1, OVA 2 during vol. 2, etc.) 3.4 - .hack Questions 3.401 - "When does .hack//SIGN air?" .hack//SIGN is starting on Cartoon Network on February 1st at 3 PM Eastern and Pacific. That's 2 PM Central and 1 PM Mountain. For people in Alaska or Hawaii... figure that out yourself. I don't understand your time zones. 3.402 - "What about the DVD's?" The DVD's are going to be coming out starting in March. There will be special versions of each one, with something extra thrown in. However, only 15,000 each of the special versions will be released. (Note: Not extra on the DVD, extra such as a soundtrack or a Puchiguso plushie. Or a lot of stuff.) 3.403 - "Is there nudity in the show?" ... No. So if you're looking for it, look elsewhere. If your parents want to shield you, then the show's safe. This has been asked several times, so I thought it should be here. 3.404 - "Is .hack//DUSK coming out here?" This is changing now. According to the video on the demo disc for the game, there *are* plans to bring at least the manga of .hack//DUSK over here. And it mentioned the anime as well, so maybe that too. 3.5 - General Questions 3.501 - "Who is Balmung?" Not sure why, but I've seen this quite often lately. Balmung is a legendary warrior in The World, in addition to being the bishounen of the series. He will offer to join you in vol. 3, Erosion Pollution/Outbreak. 3.502 - "Are there any tips you can give me?" Yeah. When on the forum, don't listen to Crimson Phantom. He's most likely wrong, and will soon be corrected, most commonly by either Rhyste or myself. Or both. 3.503 - "Where I can find more information?" ... I see how it is. My FAQ wasn't good enough for ya, eh? Fine then. Be that way. Probably one of the best sources for information is: http://dummies.net-slum.com/ Also, check on the boards. I don't mean post a message immediately. Search around. If you're not a newbie, you should have that option on the board's action bar. Use it. Love it. We'll love you if you don't post questions that have been answered 1000 times already. _________________ |4.0 - Walkthrough| When you first start your game, you're greeted with a short movie consisting of a reading of sorts of an epitaph. After this, you hear Kite talking for a minute "IRL" (In Real Life... aka, not game-Kite), and you get to choose a Username and Character Name for The World. For purposes of this guide, if you rename Kite, remember the name Kite. 'Cause I'll call him that. Now, you get to see Altimit OS for the first time. You can change the look if you want by going into <<<MENU NAME... I FORGET -_->>> and selecting one of 3 looks (orange, red, blue... that's all you have now). Read your mail, read the news, then once you're ready (if you're not on the demo, you may as well save), go to The World. Here, you can Login or go to the BBS. The first BBS posts are pretty much just explaining the system. Read through 'em, get to know them, since you'll be using this for the next 60 hours (figuring 20 hours a game... maybe more... though you're probably not playing them in order and in one sitting... feh. Whatever.) A few posts about the News items you may have read (if you cared), but nothing major. Now, once you've read the BBS, head to Login. You'll head to Mac Anu, the Delta Server root town. _______ |Mac Anu| Once you login, you'll be greeted by Orca. He'll tell you to call him Orca, and not Yashuhiko, his IRL name. Then he'll go through a short tutorial of inviting someone to your party. You'll notice emoticons. A lot. Especially :-) Next, Orca will lead you through a tutorial about keywords. _______________________________ |Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field| More tutorials. Camera, Attacking, and Chat Commands. Now, Orca's quite the high level (level 50, actually), so go around fighting whatever you can, and let him do most of the work. He'll do upwards of a couple thousand damage, and you get 60 EXP per Goblin that he kills for you (in one hit, might I add). Not that you shouldn't fight too, just don't get yourself killed. Once you've cleared the field, head to the dungeon. Another tutorial, about treasure chests, including 2 for you free just for starting out. *cough* Yeah. So, keep on, and there will be a cutscene involving a mysterious white girl being chased by what seems to be a high-level monster (Orca makes a reference to "something like that in this level?" which leads me to believe it) If you've seen SIGN, you know who the girl is. I won't spoil it for those that don't, however. :-p Now. Dungeon time. The entire dungeon is pretty much tutorial. Just get used to seeing it for a little while. Floor B1: Head forward, and you'll see a two-way split. Head to the right, where the girl went, and you'll find a dead end with a Speed Charm. Now where did she go? Head out, and down the other side of the split. Orca will explain trapped rooms and you fight a goblin. Moving along. Stairs down. Floor B2: Empty hall. Keep moving. Uh-oh. 3-way split. Which way to go? In front of you is the Gott Statue, signifying the end of the dungeon. But, if you want a bit more experience and treasure first, head left and right. Leave the room after opening the Gott Statue chest, and there's another cutscene. The girl from before gives Orca a book, and a monster appears (the same from before). Just when you think it's gonna be a boss fight... Orca takes a stand. And, unfortunately, it doesn't look good for him. Orca is taken out, and the next you know, it looks to be coming after you. But you get a System Error, and the book floats down on you (It's the Book of The Twilight, an Event Item). Look, it's a man-guy. A monologue by Kite (the game doesn't show the real world, just The World, so it wouldn't show what actually happened). Now, you're back in Altimit. You'll have mail explaining you can only login to the Delta and Theta servers. Go to the BBS, and Kite will post a message about Orca. Nothing new here other than that, go Login. Heh. You can't. I wonder why. Quit, and you should have mail. It's from "Au]$". The message is partly messed up, but it says: To the one who holds the book. Skeith is looking for me. There is no time. Please. Help me. That sounds bad. Go back to The World, and try logging in now. Nothing on the BBS yet. What? It works now? Wow. _______ |Mac Anu| You log in, and find yourself being circled by a female Heavy Blade User. She'll confront you about staring at her, and ask if you're a newbie. Kite won't answer, so she leaves. Walk down a bit. The man to your right is a Recorder. If you're not playing the demo, he can save the game for you. Keep walking. Off to your right, just before the bridge, the path leads down, and to an healing item shop. Buy some if you want, if you feel you have enough, whatever. Your call. Do weapon shopping if you want, trade with some of the people there. When you are ready, go to the Chaos Gate and Examine it. Black Rose will come back to you, asking you to take her to the Forbidden Hidden Holy Ground. Battle level 6. Not a good idea, but you have no choice. ____________________________ |Hidden Forbidden Holy Ground| Big cathedral. Head towards it. Kite will fight a Goblin (cutscene). Black Rose about pissed her pants. Who's the newbie now? Another cutscene, around a statue of Aura. And who shows up... but Balmung of the Azure Sky. He comes in, kicks some ass, and tells you to leave. Pretty standard routine for him. Black Rose attacks the infinite HP monster, and Kite flashes back to Orca. He hears a voice, telling him to open the book. Here, you use Book of Twilight. No choice. You use it. Kite gains his mostly unique ability here, the ability to data drain. And his clothes change. For whatever reason. You find a Virus Core M, and Balmung calls you "the same as the virus". Another series of cutscenes. _______ |Mac Anu| If you want some better trading items, or just a good weapon to have around, head back to Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field. You can throw your amateur blade in the Spring of Myst there and get Phantom Blades. Or you can do smart trading with items you found and possibly get Shadow Blades, an even higher level. The trading people are random, so I can't tell you for sure if you'll find any- thing in particular, just look around, talk to people, and try to trade. _______ |Altimit| Anyway, you can log out now, and there are a few new posts on the BBS. Or so it seems. Your post about Orca was deleted. Odd. There's also a post about a game of Tag. It's a Goblin. If you beat him, you win something. He gives you keywords or it. May as well try, right? But first, go check your mail. You'll have 2 mails, one from Helba and one from Black Rose. Reply as you want. News about "The World for Idiots". Whatever. _______ |Mac Anu| Let's go play Tag. Login, and you'll be back in Mac Anu. Wait. Maybe no tag yet after all. Those guys have interesting news... Go find the Catgirl and the guy with her. Mia and Elk. You'll see a cutscene with them, and Elk talks about Aromatic Grass. *cough* Mia wonders about the bracelet neither Elk nor Kite can see. Yup. Now go play Tag. It's the Detestable Golden Sunny Demon. _____________________________ |Detestable Golden Sunny Demon| You're greeted by Stehoney, and asked to play tag. Well, that's the point of coming here, right? Chase him around, attacking him. If you're having trouble, feel free to use a Speed Charm to help out. Otherwise, it's not difficult. Not like he attacks back or anything. Yay, you get the Goblin Cap for beating him. As well as 130 EXP. Not bad. Now, find that annoying bouncing thing. Investigate it, and you'll get the Mandragora Key Item. It's Grunty Food. There are several of these, and they will come in hand once you can get to Theta. Just go around, examine stuff. Whatever. Then Gate Out. Call up Black Rose to join a party, and head on back over to Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field. _______________________________ |Bursting Passed Over Aqua Field| It can never hurt to level up, and 2 swords are better than 1. Or is it, 3 are better than 2, in this case? Whatever. In the rooms next to the Gott Statue, the Portals will be back. Kill, and take treasure. The Gott Statue is, of course, still gone. So go ahead and leave. For me, it was enough for level 2. Hopefully for you as well. Also, if you didn't before, you should have gotten All Dungeon Portals Open this time. That's good. You may want to continue leveling up. Head to a new field (just choose one... make sure it's not too powerful). Now, once you think you're ready, log out. Go read the BBS. You should have several new Keywords to use. ___________ |5.0 - Items| ______________________ |5.1 - Equipment Tables| Key: PAt - Physical Attack PAc - Physical Accuracy PDe - Physical Defense PEv - Physical Evade MAt - Magical Attack MAc - Magical Accuracy MDe - Magical Defense MEv - Magical Evade EEa - Element Earth EWa - Element Water EFi - Element Fire ETh - Element Thunder EWo - Element Wood EDa - Element Darkness ECh - Element Charm EHe - Element Heal Twin Blades Name Lv.

Since, you know, they made the game. Also, from all the stupid questions posted on various .hack message boards. Thanks goes to Rhyste for helping me to figure out what Element is what, since it doesn't say in the game. _________________ |8.0 - Legal Stuff| This FAQ is copyright 2003 Josh Miller.

I'm sure you're not a spammer, but because of them, email or the boards is the only method of contacting me. Sorry. Oddly enough, I don't have problems with spam email. But that's mostly because my filters catch most of it. Fin.
