  • Easy Master Supreme on the Zeit Statue ranking in Root Town

  • Upgrading weapons or armor quickly

    You need to be at the 0 server and have the Grunty Flute. Go up to the portal, make sure you have the items on you and are not using them, hit "Random" a few times until you get a high field level (25 to 30) and warp. As soon as you are on the field, look for a pool symbol. If there is not one, leave. If there is, stay and pull up your menu. Go to "Key Items", then "Grunty Flute". Run to the pool symbol. With the flute, you will not run into any of the portals. Be careful, as there are some people just walking around. Check before getting off the pig thing. Go to the pool and throw in your items. He will appear and ask you what you dropped. Say "Neither". He will spin and give you better or worse items. If you save just before you do this, quit if he gives you worse items and try another area. Save the game after he gives you a better item.

  • Getting items needed for trade

    Use the following trick to get certain items needed for trade (for example, Cooked Bile). Remember a place that has the item and go there. Once you get to a place with a lot of jars or eggs/small eggs (usually a treasure box area), break everything. If you get the desired item, exit then immediately return. The jars or eggs/small eggs have been restored. Break everything again. Note: This does not mean you will get the desired item every time. Keep repeating the process until you have enough of those items to trade. You will get items that are useful, such as Healing Potions, Healing Drinks, Antidotes, Resurrects, and Restoratives. This is especially useful just before Bosses. Also, since it is free you will not want waste any money.

  • Blackrose's Best weapon

    The strongest weapon you can get for Blackrose or any Heavy Blade is a Blaze Sword. You can get it by Data Draining the Hell Hounds in a Level 28 to 30 Keyword, such as Voluptuous Geothermal Paradise.

  • Kite's best weapon

    To get Kite's best available weapon for Part 1, Data Drain the "Mu Guardians" enough times. Eventually you will get the rare Level 14 Dual Blades. Data Drain the Mu Guardians for one of Kite's best weapons, the Bom-Ba-Yee. Data Drain a Phoenix Queen to get a very powerful Wavemaster weapon.

  • Secret rare weapons

    Data Drain enemies and on rare occasions, you will get a secret weapon. Each secret rare weapon lowers one or more stat parameter by -10:

      Secret Rare Twin Blade: Hyakkidorran (Data Drain the Parasite Dragon)
      Secret Rare Blademaster: Jinsiran

    The best weapon is acquired by Data Draining the Parasite Dragon on the airship. It does more damage than the Bom-Ba-Ye, is less accurate, but has more skills and magic power.

  • DVD special keywords

    The OVA that comes with the game has hidden keywords to help you. The only one that has relevance is "Chosen Hopeless Nothingness", which is where you fight the final Boss. If you turn on subtitles, you will find keywords throughout the DVD. Some include "Luscious Her Remnant", "Hideous Organ market Scaffold, and "Dog Dancing Passionate Tri Pansy". None of them are that special, but in "Dog dancing Tri Pansy", if you reach the statue of Gott at the end of the dungeon you will get an Ice Block that is used for trading.

    Insert the DVD, then select the "Data" option at the main menu. Highlight the "Main Menu" option, then press Right, Left to view instructions on how to use the Timeline gallery.

  • Easy experience

    Go to "Delta, Closed Oblivious Twin Hills" to find weak enemies that give lots of experience points each. You should go there only if you are at level 20 and above.

  • Regain SP

    Walk around and your SP meter will refill. This is especially useful if you have monsters to fight next. You can just wait in an empty dungeon room until it refills.

  • Difficult levels

    Go to the Chaos Gate then enter one of the following new keywords. "[ all data]" for Closed Oblivios Twin Hills, level 22, "Collapsed pagan march" for level 26, "Caressed silent melody" for level 26, "Quite gluttonous fiery sands" for level 24, "Lonely hot-blooded sunny demon" for level 27, and "Lonely hot-blooded melody" for level 30.

  • Iron Grunty

    The only way to get an Iron Grunty is to give the Grunty what it exactly wants, even as very Little Grunty. An Iron Grunty requires four Piney Apples, three Snaky Cactuses, and twelve Golden Eggs.

  • Poison Grunty

    A Poison Grunty requires four Piney Apples, three Snaky Cactuses, one Immature Egg, and eleven Golden Eggs.

  • Grunty items

The Ryu Books keeps a record of almost everything. It will tell you if you broke a record. It will then give you a new sound or movie for your computer on the game. Note: Movie only works the game has been completed, and all movies are just some memories of what happened. Check every Ryu Book if you got everything for the computer. If it is red, it can not create any more things for you. You can only check a Ryu Book when in the server.

  • Summons

    A level 1 summon for each type of element can be found in dungeons level 29 and 30, for the corresponding element. They are not as powerful as level 3 magic, but they seem to not miss the targets.

  • Thunder Cloak

    Look for someone named Tim. He may be a Wavemaster wearing a green outfit. He has an item for trade called Thunder Cloak. It is a level 31 armor, and has the power to revive dead players so you will not need to use Resurrect potions all the time. It also has other powers.

  • Defeating the Goblin Kings

    Going through a set number of events, a message will appear on the board called "Let's Play Tag". In this message, there will be a Golden Goblin challenging you to play tag. Go to the area instructed and try to defeat him. When you win, he will tell you how he is just an apprentice of the four Goblin Kings. Later, you will get extensions of the challenge note from one of the four Goblin Kings. To defeat them, get close enough to use a multi-hit attack, such as Tiger Claw or Staccato, after using an item or technique to raise your accuracy. Otherwise, most of the hits will miss. Repeat this a few times and you should defeat them easily. To kill the last Goblin without having it heal itself, bring some Mage's Souls and Speed Charm. First, use Speed Charm to go faster. When you get close enough to the Goblin, use skills. When you run out of SP, use Mage's Soul to regain it. Keep doing and that Goblin will not have time to heal.

  • Defeating Parasite Dragon

    After you defeat Skeith, there will be two e-mails by "Roy@Bandai"; one stating that you cleared the game and the other called "Giant of Heavens". Open it, and it mentions something about a "Mystical Giant". The e-mail will give you a Virus Core T and a new place to go to: "Delta Hideous Someone's Giant". The Boss is Parasite Dragon, Level 30, HP: 9999, SP: 305, Skill: Ranki Lei, Items: 3x Hyrakkidouran. To defeat this boss, you must use the following characters: Kite, Choice of Heavy Blade, Heavy Axe or Blademaster, and Wavemaster; along with these items:

      Equipment for Kite or Long Arm User:
      Weapon: Dante's Blades or Hell's Gate (Twin Blade), Fiend Spear (Long Arm)
      Helmet: Fire Dance Hat
      Armor: Firedrake Mail
      Hand Armor: Miner's Gloves or Smith's Gloves
      Leg Armor: Fire Lizard

      Equipment for BlackRose, Blademaster, Heavy Blade, or Heavy Axe:
      Weapon: Claymore (Heavy Blade), Jinsaran (Blademaster, Secret Rare Blademaster Sword) or Sun Fang One or Kikujyumonji, Devil's Axe (Heavy Axe)
      Helmet: Hunter's Hood or Forester Helm
      Armor: Blaze Armor
      Hand Armor: Hands of Fire
      Leg Armor: Electric Guard

      Equipment for Mistral or Wavemaster:
      Weapon: Starstorm Wand
      Helmet: Scarab Earring
      Armor: Lincoln Green (From Cima)
      Hand Armor: Air Bracer
      Leg Armor: Oak Anklet

    As you begin the battle, start by using everyone's best skills at the dragon. However, do not use magic since the Parasite Dragon has Magic Tolerance. The only thing that is effective on the dragon is physical attacks. Use both Kite and the Heavy Blade, Heavy Axe or Blademaster attacking the Dragon while the Wavemaster heals you. Because of the last battle against Skeith, you should have a lot of Resurrects. Keep attacking it and heal often. The dragon can do damages of 400+ for the fire breath and 500 for each of the two bite hits. Once finished, a short intermission sequence will show Kite saying that the monster made the airship into a flesh airship.

    Enter this battle with at least 15 Resurrects and make sure Kite knows Repth or La Repth. Instead of bringing in a Wave Master into the fight, bring in two of your strongest fighters (for example, BlackRose and Gardenia). When the portal with the Parasite Dragon opens, have Kite run away but tell the others to use attack skills. The Parasite Dragon will be occupied with the other two fighters and not on Kite. Keep having Kite heal everyone. When the other characters die, use a Resurrect. When the Dragon can be Data Drained (at about 700 HP) use Data Drain and you will get the Hyakkidouran for Kite.

  • Defeating Skeith

    Buy many Resurrects, Healing Drinks, Antidotes, Restoratives and Mage's Souls. Have your party at least at level 30. Take a person with a lot of damage in your party, and equip the best equipment there is, as follows:

      Equipment for Kite or Long Arm User:
      Weapon: Dante's Blades or Hell's Gate (Twin Blade), Fiend Spear (Long Arm)
      Helmet: Fire Dance Hat
      Armor: Firedrake Mail
      Hand Armor: Miner's Gloves or Smith's Gloves
      Leg Armor: Fire Lizard

      Equipment for BlackRose, Blademaster, Heavy Blade, or Heavy Axe:
      Weapon: Claymore (Heavy Blade), Jinsaran (Blademaster, Secret Rare Blademaster Sword) or Sun Fang One or Kikujyumonji, Devil's Axe (Heavy Axe)
      Helmet: Hunter's Hood or Forester Helm
      Armor: Blaze Armor
      Hand Armor: Hands of Fire
      Leg Armor: Electric Guard

      Equipment for Mistral or Wavemaster:
      Weapon: Starstorm Wand
      Helmet: Scarab Earring
      Armor: Lincoln Green (From Cima)
      Hand Armor: Air Bracer
      Leg Armor: Oak Anklet

    To defeat Skeith, distribute twenty Resurrects to each person in the party, then thirty Healing Drinks and twenty of Antidote and Restoratives. Do not distribute the Mage's Souls. Use the entire group at first and use skills. If Kite dies, press Square for "First Aid" and afterwards, just keep hitting him without skills. Once you get enough for data hacking, use it on Skeith and you will see his second form. Because of this, just do a hit and heal combo so you will not get major damage from the shockwave hits. Keep repeating this combo so you will not die. And if you do die, keep using "First Aid" and keep slashing away.
