PHANTASY STAR ONLINE Rare Items FAQ v. 1.25 by Khaotika! This FAQ is written for the US version of Phantasy Star Online for the Sega Dreamcast. It is written for the sole purpose of finding all the appropriate items for your character, best weapons for them, managing your inventory, etc. This FAQ shall not be posted up on any gaming websites without my permission. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to do so. Also, the plagarizing or selling of this FAQ is illegal. Feel free to print this for your enjoyment. ;) The newest version of this FAQ can always be found at www.gamefaqs.com. This FAQ can also be found at these websites: www.khaotika.com/pso.html http://members.tripod.co.uk/PSORetribution http://area51hq.com http://all.at/pso http://www.geocities.com/xm_blades Anywhere else means that they stole it. :p It will be updated once a week, unless I happen to get a glut of new info.. ***************************************************************************** 4/10/2001 - v. 1.25 - More, more, more..how do you like it, how do you like it?.. heh. Added 3rd NOTICE... :p 4/3/2001 - v. 1.2 - Corrections, additions... isn't anyone tired of this game yet? :p Also added a SECOND NOTICE, as well as some serious questions.. 3/27/2001 - v. 1.15 - Correcting info, adding info..as usual. :p 3/20/2001 - v. 1.1 - More rares info added! Also, added a few URLs and a NOTICE... 3/13/2001 - v. 1.0 - Basically, this FAQ was torn straight from the uber- gigantic Items/Weapons/etc. FAQ I wrote. It was getting quite huge, so I decided to split this from the main FAQ. Besides, over 90% of the email I receive is about rares.. :p Added quite a few things, as well as (hopefully) correcting some information like 'where an item falls under', info on how to get them, etc. For info on regular items, please refer to my Items/Weapons/Armor/Units FAQ. ***************************************************************************** Contents - *NOTICE, NOTICE#2, NOTICE#3* Introduction 1. Hard to Find But Worth it Regular Items (Weapons, Armor, etc.) 2. Rare Items (Weapons, Armor, Units) 3. Mag Items 4. Rumors, Fun Stuff, and other common questions 5. Trade List/My Items 6. Thanks and Credits ***************************************************************************** *NOTICE* While I appreciate the ton of emails I get about my 2 FAQs, PLEASE, PLEASE don't email me asking for free handouts of these items. Some of these I have, but most I don't. Those I do have, I'm probably using. Any Special Weapons I happen to have are mainly for my own use, or to have for the hell of it. And no, I don't have Heaven's Punisher, please quit asking for it. What the hell use would a Gae Bolg be to a RAmar anyway?? I would consider trades, but I don't have much of value..most of what I have, could easily be found on your own.. :p And if you do see me on PSO, please be kind. My mental health is usually one step away from the looney bin.... @_@ *NOTICE #2* "Why haven't you responded to my email yet?* -Because I receive between 10-35 emails A DAY concerning this game/FAQ. It's slowed down considerably since the first version, but I still get a LOT of mail. I'd really like to respond to them all, but I only really get a chance to reply to a few very rarely. Most of the emails that I do get have either questions that can be answered by reading the latest version of the FAQ/or people asking me to play a game with them. You can find that info later on in the FAQ.. *NOTICE #3* Please, please, PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE FAQ, before you decide to send me information!! A lot of the email I've gotten recently just states info that someone else has already sent me! Thank you! Also, some people have been sending me the same 3 or 4 questions about items.. Take the time to read all the way to the bottom, and if your question isn't answered by the faq, please feel free to email me... ***************************************************************************** This FAQ is here as reference for the seemingly never ending amount of rare items found in this game. It should serve as an all-purpose reference guide for anyone looking for the best weapon for their character, to which units are the best to attach to your armor. Some of these rares are quite common (DB Saber anyone?), while some are MADDENINGLY difficult to find. ID, Hours Played, The Person who starts the game, etc, all seem to make finding certain rares easier. Some items, weapons, etc. can only be used by certain classes. Androids cannot use Magic, so items related to that are useless to them. Keep in mind that some classes learn to use weapons/spells, etc. at a faster pace than others. As for the items list, you can hold a maximum of 60 items total in storage, as well as 30 on your person. 90 items seems like a lot, but your space will fill up quickly, trust me. ;) I can't do this FAQ alone, so I need some help acquiring info about some of the rare items you may find in your game, such as Magical Piece, Pan Arm's Blades, etc. Email me at email@example.com if you have anything you want to add here. I'll put it in the next revision. :) ***************************************************************************** 1. Hard to Find But Worth It Regular Items As we all know by now, finding that one rare item you've been looking for countless hours really makes the time spent in this game well worth it. But for all those who haven't had such luck, here's a small list of hard to find regular items, that are just as good, and in some cases, better.. For GENERAL USES: A great weapon needs to have a lot of high photon percentages on all enemies. Blizzard types help in online games, as they can help freeze the faster VHard enemies so your teammates won't get slaughtered. Tempest weapons are great against the machines of the Mines, while Burning types help against most Cave monsters. Other very useful types for online (or offline) play are Gush, Arrest, Hell, Geist, Demon's and Devil's. Have a LOT of extra cash and have nothing to buy? Use a Charge weapon. A Gladius with any of these types should be kept on your person at all times, if you're not a Hunter. For HUNTERS: For quick attackers, I recommend a Blizzard Ripper or an Arrest Ripper. To take out a legion of enemies, Gush Gungirs and Caliburs help tremendously. Nothing beats a weapon of the Gungir or Calibur type with a Demon's, Devil's, or even a Hell attribute. Try to find a weapon that suits your playing style, as well as one with the attribute you feel helps you out the most. For RANGERS: To help get a swarm of Dimenians off your back, try a Demon's Laser or even a Devil's Laser. Blizzard and Arrest types also help out as well. Androids who can't benefit from attributes like Geist or Spirit, can use a Charge type weapon if they have the extra meseta for it. If you can find a Hell Arms, hold on to it, and teach the Ruins enemies a lesson. For FORCES: Nothing feels better than using a Blizzard weapon, followed by a well placed Rafoie to show enemies what 'a cold day in Hell' really means. Geist Rayguns are a Godsend for Forces, so you should always be on the hunt for one with some high percentages. Arrest, Demon's, Devil's and Hell also help out in a pinch. HARD TO FIND FRAMES/ARMOR/BARRIERS/SHIELDS Ultimate Frame ?? Level 80 VHard Ruins Guardian Armor 70000 to 240250+ Level 75 VHard Mode Divinity Armor ?? Level 78 VHard Mode Celestial Armor ??

Level 75 VHard Ruins (availability of Guardian Armor/Divinity Barriers/Spiritual Shield will increase as you play VHard Ruins more often) *************************************************************************** 2. Rare Items This covers the rare items found while playing through the game by yourself or with others. The chance of finding these, is of course, better if you play in a multi-player game online. Some of these are more common than others, and some, even though they belong to a certain family of weapons/armor, can be equipped by any character. If you find these items (with the exception of rare units), they will usually be unknown weapons/armor, in LARGE FONT, and you will have to see a tekker to actually reveal what they are. Once analyzed, these items will show up in your stock in Gold Font. The easier to find ones are around 9 Stars. The harder to find ones are 10 Stars or more.. *IF YOU DIDN'T READ THIS IN THE OPENING STATEMENT: Number of hrs played has an affect on when all rares will appear. Don't expect to find things like Brionac on your first trip through VHard Ruins. * (9 STARS) RARE WEAPON WHO CAN EQUIP DESCRIPTION FOUND/COST --------------------------------------------------------------------------- #Saber Types# DB'S SABER All CLASSES A sword with the Hard Ruins/ (ATP must be 265 or higher) initials "DB" carved VHard levels/ (up to +9) into the hilt.

It works on Time, aka the Internet Beats clock at the bottom of your menu screen. The special attack can ONLY be used at EVEN hundreds on this beat clock. So, the only times it can work are times between: 0-100, 200-300, 400-500, 600-700, 800-900. So if you want to use it, and your time is for example: 145..you'll just have to be patient and wait until the clock reads 200. *Thanks to DarttheDragoon@aol.com for this info* #Cane Types# STING TIP Force ONLY A special battle cane with VHard Ruins/ (MST must be 260 or higher) needles on its tip.

Mag Items When playing in game, you may actually come upon an item that really isn't a weapon, armor, item, or body part. This item is called a Mag Item. These usually show up as Cells or Hearts, followed by the name of the mag they help create. The best place to find these items are from Al Rappies in VHard Forest. Here are a few names of these cells. When fed to your Mag on certain occasions, your Mag will transform into a rare Mag. For more accurate info on these, please refer to Nozedive13's excellent MAG GUIDE at GameFAQs.

Rumors, Fun Stuff, and other common questions -Rare Weapon Rumors- Dragon Elk - The supposed 'Gladiator Spike', aka. Spike Gladius. I've had about 3 people email me about it's confirmed existance. I'm not quite sure what to think, really, until I see more evidence. Sharked. Not real. Photon Whip - Again, mostly rumors. I ran into someone last night (3/26/01) who claimed to possess this. It would be really nice to see a whip-type weapon in the game, though. :) Black Death - AKA, the Black Double Saber. No proof that this exists, other than the rumor of it being Gamesharked.. -Other Item Rumors- Lv 999 Mags - Sorry to say, but hacked. :p God/HP++, God/TP++ - There are a few who claim these ACTUALLY exist. I'm sort of inclined to believe them, seeing as how most other units of this type can have pluses or minuses. The only ones I've seen were hacked. In fact, a friend let me try one out.. (he's mentioned in the list, not saying who..) Gives you 9002 HP/8982 TP, respectively.. -Fun Stuff- *Fun Fakes* I'm making a lil mini-site (www.khaotika.com/pso.html), dedicated to making up some funny fake weapons for use in PSO. Items along the likes of Arm of Starscream, Link's Boomerang, Rico's Ring, etc. Check it out. I should get it up and working sometime within the next two weeks.. *My weapons collection* Despite the fact that I put a NOTICE at the top of this FAQ, I _STILL_ get emails asking for handouts. I'll be MORE THAN HAPPY to game with you to help you find a weapon, but I'm not about to give up any of my hard-earned items. :p If you're asking me to taunt you, then I'll be more than happy to oblige... -Common Questions- *Do you have Heaven's Punisher? Can I have it d00d? Pl33se?? -No, no, and no. :p *How do you get the Soul Eater? -Great taste, it's in there...uh, I mean, it has a listing in this FAQ. Read that to obtain it. *Where are the rare enemies? -Beats me. Probably all at Starbucks or something. Al Rappy and Hildeblue appear in Forests, Nar Lillies and Pouilly Slimes appear in Caves. *What do I do with ???'s arm? -Read the FAQ. :p , particularly the section under #enemy weapons.. *I need Lvl 15 tech disks!! Help! -Ok, this isn't a question.. but you can get most lvl 15 disks anywhere, as long as you look for them hard enough.. (I have Foie 15, Deband 15, and Gibarta 15). Hard attack technique disks (Ra-levels, Grants, Megid) can only be obtained from a PINKAL ID player or their games.. *What rares are in my ID? -What I have written down in this FAQ is what I know about. *How do I get a Spread Needle? -Sell your soul to me. Email me for my address. :p Actually, I heard that REDRIA, VIRIDIA, and BLUEFULL have the highest chance of getting one.. *Does God/Equip exist? -How should I know? :p I've never seen a RAcast with a Sting Tip, so I think that it's a hacked item. It'd be fun if it did exist.. *Duz NE1 have Devil/Tech--? -No, now stop bugging me, or I will eat your eyeballs. -SERIOUS QUESTIONS- *Can I get multiple Soul Eaters/Frying Pans per game?* -You only have 3 chances each to get these during your character's life. Once in Normal, once in Hard, and once in VHard. So, if you happen to screw something up, try to get them in a higher level. If you screwed them all up, try making a 2nd character and get the weapon from their game. Otherwise, you must trade for them/be lucky enough to have an enemy drop the Soul Eater (it happens!). *Do items like Lavis Cannon/Nei's Claw/Sonic Knuckles/insert random item here exist?* -Lavis Cannon, I hear, can definitely be found on your own. Nei's Claw is supposed to be a prize in some sort of Japan only tournament.. so, I suppose the ones you see out there are possible Gamesharked clones. There is a rumor that the NPC (Non-Playable-Character) Sue has the Claw. As for Sonic Knuckles, they do exist, but I believe under the same circumstances for the Nei's Claw (duped/sharked). *WTF? I traded for a TP Material? What does this do? -Thanks to Odlanor, I've seen actual TP Material. It raises your max TP by 2. Of course, you could always do this with Mind Material, but after your MST maxes, Mind Material becomes useless, hence TP material. Odlanor acquired this from a trade, so I have no idea if they really exist, but I've heard of people actually finding multiples of this in the Ruins.. and hey, Sega does actually update the servers every once in awhile... *I can't use (insert item here) online! Help me! -Sega's been cracking down on a lot of things lately. PKing (Player Killing) is gone, with the banishment of Devil/Technique--, as well as the possibility of the banned use of some weapons on this list. AFAIK, Nei's Claw, Sonic Knuckles, and Egg Blaster have all been banned from online use. (of course, I expect an email telling me different. :p ) Methinks Sega is going after Dupers and Gamesharkers. *Why haven't you updated the Items/etc.. FAQ? -Because the overwhelming majority of mail I get is for this FAQ... And peeps asking for free stuf.. :p Most people are more interested in what this FAQ offers than my other one anyway.. *Your FAQ states that you can only find (insert random item here) in (insert random location here). I found it in (different location). What's up with that? -I only call 'em as I see em. Up until a few weeks ago, I had no idea you could get Blade Dances on Forest 2. What's posted is just the information I'm given. There are countless cases of people finding rare items in the strangest of locations. Items that have descriptions of 'found almost everywhere' or 'vhard levels' mean just that. They can be found ALL THROUGHOUT the game on those levels. You just have to keep looking, keep playing, leave no stone unturned, so to speak. No info here is technically wrong info, it's just that some people have varying degrees of luck, or varying section IDs. Just keep at it. *I want to play/trade with you. Where are you? -At the bottom of the FAQ, I list Ophelia, Block 10. As for times, I'm usually on between 9/10pm to whenever in the am Eastern Standard Time. Be kind to me if you see me. Oh, and sometimes I jump to other ships, or don't log on every night, so don't be surprised if you don't see me there. *************************************************************************** 5. Trade List/My Items List I'm getting sick of finding nothing but armor and units when I play offline, so I decided to start a trade list. Rules and current items up for trade can be found at www.khaotika.com/pso.html , under the appropriate section. (Will be up sometime this week) I'll also post a list of my current non-tradable items, so you can gawk. Or something to that effect.. *************************************************************************** 6.
