Phantasy Star Online Episode I & II

Glitches

Item Duplication

Start a single player off line game in episode 1 and deposit your meseta. Then go to the shop area and lure the woman towards one of the shops to start a conversation with her and one of the store clerks simultaneously. Exit her conversation without exiting the shop menu, then walk to one of the other shops and talk to the clerk. You should see the 2 menus overlapping each other. Now exit 1 but not the other. You should be able to move freely while still seeing the shop menu. Now go to the bank and talk to the clerk. Again, the menus will overlap. Exit the shop menu without exiting the bank menu. You should now be able to walk freely while exploring the bank menu. Withdraw everything you wish to duplicate and deposit everything you don't. Walk to an open area and ensure that the bank menu says item/meseta. Open the start menu and ensure you have items highlighted in the bank menu as well as itembag in the start menu. Please note that you can now navigate the bank menu with the control stick without disrupting the start menu. Press A, then select deposit/items in the bank/start menus. Scroll to the bottom of the list and press A. Select no/drop. The item should appear on the ground but still remain in the bank menu. Now press A and select yes/drop repeatedly until your itembag is empty. You should now have everything in the bank as well as on the ground.

Permanently raise base stats

To perform this glitch you will need an armor with at least one slot and any unit that increases a base stat. First, perform the dupe glitch up until you have the bank open. Then, what you will need to do is equip your unit at the same time that you deposit the armor you've equipped. The simplest way to do this is to press Z when the bank menu is at Deposit/Take. Press A when your menu cursor is on Item Pack and your bank cursor is on Deposit. Press A when your menu cursor is on Equip and your bank cursor is on Item. Press A when your menu cursor is on your empty unit slot and your bank cursor is on the armor you have equipped. Press A when your menu cursor is on the unit you want to get stat boosts from and your bank cursor is on Yes. You will now have no armor equipped yet have a unit equipped. Quit the game and reload. Each time you quit, you permanently gain the status bonus granted by the unit you have equipped. You can now quit and reload as many times as you like until your base stats are at a value you're satisfied with. To disable the glitch, simply equip any armor or unequip the unit. As a tip, note that the analog stick only moves the bank cursor, thus you can set your menu cursor by using the pad or C-stick and then set your bank cursor using the analog stick.

Piping

Go to a room where there are monters that can be transformed into rares.

(Normal to V. Hard= Rag Rappy, Hildebear, Poison Lily and Poufuilly Slime)
(Ultimate= El Rappy, Hidelt, Ob Lily and Poufuilly Slime)

Then start to use Ryuker/Telepipe. Just keep going back and forth until that monster turns into his rare version. This could take 5 or 5 thousand minutes, just to show you how random it is.

(Normal to V. Hard= Al Rappy, Hildeblue, Nar Lily and Pouilly Slime)
(Ultimate= Pal Rappy, Hildetorr, Mil Lily and Pouilly Slime)

((Note: In VR Temple, in episode 2, there aren't Al/Pal rappys, the Rag/El rappy rare version will always be a "Love rappy")

This works in places where these enemies appear, so it doesn't matter in which episode you are playing. But the items will be different, if you kill the same rare monster, but in other episode.

The items also varie from difficulty. The item that a Hildeblue let to you in hard, will not be the same in Very Hard (V. Hard)

Walk through barriers

In some quests, passageways are walled off using barriers (debris, rocks, etc.) rather than locked doors. These barriers can be passed through with a little patience. Walk up to the barrier in question until you are as close as possible to it; to save time, try and find the spot where the barrier is closest to the wall. Face the barrier, centre the camera behind your character, then cast Ryuker or use a telepipe. Head back through the portal, then turn around and come back. As your game loads in, hold forward on the analogue stick.Your character will inch forward very slightly into the barrier, as the game allows you to move briefly before spawning your character and the barrier. Cast Ryuker/use a telepipe again and repeat the process. It will likely take several dozen telepipes/Ryukers before you make it all the way through the barrier, but eventually you will emerge on the other side. Using this method, you can reach areas players were never meant to access. Most of these are empty rooms with nothing in them, but some areas have enemy spawns. Easily the most lucrative area to access with this glitch comes in the Caves in the Letter from Lionel quest; using this glitch, you can access an area filled with Poifully Slimes, allowing easy farming of an enemy that typically does not spawn in high numbers.

1. Get through Control Tower and arrive on the beach.
2. Talk to Elly. She will ask you to wait at the Pioneer 2 for Her.

At this point a Portal back will open up but do NOT go in. Instead follow her as she starts to walk away she will go to a different portal that leads to Pioneer 2 but once again do NOT go in this one either. She will say "I just want to stay alittle longer im so sad" or somthing along those lines. At which point a great In-game cutscene will take place showing your character and Elly watching the Ocean. Then a message will appear on the screen -Impossible to miss- and it will give a thanks from the developers and a Credit Roll for this Quest.

Note: This optional bonus does nothing for your character or storyline that i know of, but its great to actually go through the whole quest.

Secrets

Avoiding Traps

Just like in the Dreamcast version of this game, if you go into the menu screen (select the ''z'' button), you will not pause at all when walking by traps. This allows you to walk through trapped halls without stopping, waiting, or shooting the traps.

Dressing Room

If you have 10,000 Meseta on your character when you quit a game, you can access the Dressing Room feature.

To do so, just enter Offline/Online Mode. Get a hold of 10,000 Meseta and make your character hold them, so you can't have it in the Deposit Box. Exit the game by quiting.

Now when you go to select your character where you would normally get the options ''Comfirm, Recreate, or Cancel'' you should now see ''Dressing Room.''

Remember this costs 10,000 Meseta, and if you select Dressing Room and ''OK'' you will be deducted those Meseta. The features in the Dressing Room are limited only to changing Hair Style, Hair Color, and Clothing. Not something big, but after playing a certain number of hours with the same clothing, you can add change.

GameBoy Advance Downloads

Do the quest ''The Fake in Yellow'' and find the doctor. After you talk to the person that gives you the quest DO NOT collect the mesta. Go back the red teleporter that is wavy and go back to Forest 1. Once you get there you will see 3 Rag Rappies that you can talk to. Go the the background with the waterfall and stand there. After a while a Chao will appear and will give you the ability to download games for your GBA in Pioneer 2. It looks like a GBA on a pole. You will also get the Tails Chao on your GBA.

Getting techniques earlier

To get a technique before you have enough MST, just simply equip something like a priest mind in a slot of your armor of frame. This will hopefully give you enough MST to use that technique, and when you remove the item in your slot, you won't lose the technique.

Manipulate the loading screens

Going online, you can use either the Control Stick, or the C-Stick to move the glittering light around the screen.

Going to an area, you can use the Control Stick to turn the warp tunnel, and the C-Stick to change the speed of the tunnel.
