About weapons...
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.

To get Kites best available weapon for Part 1, Data Drain the Mu Guardians enough times. Eventually you will get the rare Level 14 Dual Blades.

To get all the time armor from the Zeit statue records go to delta Cronicling pagan Sunny demon and bring a few fairy orbs with you so you see the whole dungeon floor maps and bring some speed charms too.

All for one...
As Orca pointed out, you get no EXP benefit from entering dungeons alone. So, if you can help it, don't. And make sure your teammates always have a few ressurections (check their status, then hit square to see their items). The other items don't matter as much, but if Kite dies and no-one else has a ressurection, you're screwed. You know how intelligent AI is.

A team can also help you defeat much tougher dungeons than you should, and since EXP is determined by how high above yours the enemies levels are, this is a good thing. I used a part of level 9 Kite, 8 Mistral and 5 Piros earlier to complete a level 17 dungeon. 4 floors, with every field and dungeon portal opened. By the end of it, they were all level 17. It's possible. Keep track of your items, and get your teammates good equipment if you can.

Beat Skeith easy after Data Drain
Once Skeith is in his second stage (after the Data Drain), either you or a Wavemaster should use "Magic" skills or scrolls to temporarily "freezing" him. By doing this, you give any close range people a chance to attack freely, inflict damage through the magic, and disable him from attacking.

~Be sure to continue healing as well.
~Only use skills that inflict damage, not weakening ones. They have no effect and don't slow him down.

Data Drain
Kite acquires this power early in the game. It enables him to scan and remove viral code from monsters which decreases their power sufficiently and will only take one hit to kill. Doing so will increase your chances of earning a rare item or virus core which are used for Gate Hacking. Using the Data Drain raises your infection level which could lead to a glitch. The infection rate will rise in relation to the monster you are fighting. If his level is higher than yours, you can expect a higher increase of infection when using the Data Drain and the reverse is also true (a monster with a lower level will cause less infection). To observe your infection rate, select the skills screen and look at the Data Drain Infection data which is color coded.

Blue 0-24%
Light Blue 25-49%
Green 50-74%
Yellow 75-99%
Red 100%

You can decrease the infection rate by killing monsters without using the Data Drain ability. Doing so will decrease your infection level by 1-3% approximately.

Data Drain
Ok this is pretty well know but USE DATA DRAIN!
The reason why is you need the virus cores that you get from normal monsters to gate hack and get rare stuff from.

Easy way to beat the boss
It is actually quite easy to beat Skeith. Raise your character to Lv 32 by training. Now find and equip a Twin Blade weapon called the Masterblades. If you can find Enou (a Twin Blade weapon), take it to Lv 30 area Springs (most preferably the Wood, Fire or Thunder Element). The 2nd or 3rd upgrade should be the Masterblades. Then find and equip the Thunder Cloak and the Thunder Torque (both are usually Lv 31). I equipped It on myself, but I strongly advise you to equip the Thunder Torque on Mistral. It has a Resurrecting Spell on it (Rip Maen) and La Repth. Now add BlackRose and Mistral to your party, both preferably at Lv 31 or 32. Buy a lot (I advise 99 each, or at least 50 each for those on a budget) of Health Drink, Hunter Blood and the other one that increases Physical Attack (I think it's called Fighter Blood or something like that) at an Item Shop, and Speed Charm at a Magic Shop (unnecessary but recommended). By the time you get to the Boss Battle, you should each be at Lv 32 (trust me). It might get a bit rough and you might die sometimes, but it should be really easy to Protect Break Skeith as long as you keep far away from him initially, keep BlackRose on Skills and Mistral on First Aid (with Chat Command), and then come up close and use your really powerful Attack Skills. After Skeith is Data Drained, he will cause more damage, but he will attack less often, only with his Ground Stomp. Now put everybody on Skills and attack him all at once. He will have a Hp of 4500 and will take a bit of time but is really easy to beat.

how to beat final goblin in dot hack infection
the last goblin you can fight is after you beat the game on the message board.
at first she will use a spell that keeps her hp up. (very annoying...) so what i did was i bought speed charms (of course...) and some warrior blood and hunter blood (helps sooooo much!) also mage's soul to keep my sp up. equip a weapon with a skill that gets a lot of hits like staccatto. keep using that skill and you should have her beat in minutes! afterwards she tells you if you equip all goblin items you can summon a goblin to use! good luck!!! :3

Kites best weapon
After you beat skieth you will get an email from Roy@Bandai that gives you the keywords (Delta: Hideous Someone's Giant) and a virus core. Go to the area and use the core.

eventually you should face a tetra armor (or two) and data drain them until you get Dante's Blades.

I got them on the first try.

MASTER TRAINING
this is training i like to call "master training"
this helps you level up faster and get better items and more money.

go to an area atleast 3-5 levels higher than you are and bring your best teammates(i prefer blackrose and mistral)then get into alot of fights and be sure to bring some heal potions cause it's gonna be kinda tough but it's worth it

~be sure to use elemental weaknesses for easier wins

~this helps alot better when your around lvl 10 or lower

Skeith Tips
When you think you're ready to fight Skeith, go to [Theta] Chosen Hopeless Nothingness. Hop on a Grunty as soon as you can and ride it around until you find the dungeon, this way you don't have to fight any monsters on your way. Make sure you've got 99 of any healing potion or health drink, at least 50 resurrects, and a lot of antidotes and restorataves. Then when you're in the dungeon, use a Fairy's Orb in each floor. Each Orb maps out one floor of the dungeon. A gold dot will represent a monster portal, a black square is a treasure chest. This way you can fight as few battles as possible before you face Skeith.

Zen and the art of standing still
The battlefields in .Hack are devided into clear sections. Use this to your adventure.

Firstly, you should never need to use an item except in the midst of a life or death struggle. After battle, use your magic (repth and le repth) to heal yourself and your teammates, then stay where you are until your SP refills.

This way, you can enter any and every new section of a dungeon with your party fully healed.

[ Tip ] - 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.

[ Tip ] - 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.

Final boss tips
So, you've gotten to the final boss, and you got killed on your first time fighting him right?

Well I'm here to make sure that doesn't happena second time!

You're going to have to update your equipment to the mid twenty levels for Kite, Sanjuro and BlackRose.

You need to visit fields and dungeons of the mid twenties too, and keep doing so until all three characters are at level 29 or higher.

take 99 healing drinks, 99 of all the other items that you use regularly and also give a few healing items to your partners.

Get to the boss fight, and there, you must have kite wait in back, constantly healing and resurrecting your teammates, while they do the fighting! Don't bother with any attacks, or any skills for healing, just use items to heal until th boss is Data Drainable, Data Drain him, and then resume healing your friends until they've killed him!

Good luck!

to get infinite money you have to go to the place that orca took you to at the beginning of the game, and go to the dungeon. Enter the dungeon and you should see two chests open the brown one but use a fortune wire on the blue one then leave, and come back and do the same thing over and over, and sell the items and equipment you get.

Kite's strongest physical weapon
I saw a cheat saying that Bom-ba-Ye was kite's strongest weapon, which isn't wrong from a magic stand point; but if you want the strongest physcial weapon you are going to have to work for it. Just keep a spare pair of dualblades with you and everytime you come to the pond (or whatever you want to call it) switch it out. Gradually it will get stronger and you'll end up with Masterblades. They are only level 13 but are Physcialy better for attacking and come with better skills.
