The old one was destroyed when the servers mysteriously burned down. The new world is a bit DarkerAndEdgier these days with all the PlayerKilling. The PKK (Player Killer Killer) from ''.hack//Roots'', Haseo, has become legendary in his own right. As a hunter; he has killed hundreds of Player Killers and has gained the title [[RedBaron The Terror Of Death]]. Yes, [[ForeShadowing the same title the first Boss in the first game series had]]. He is hunting down a mysterious Player Killer known as Tri-Edge, for this mysterious Tri-Edge PK'd Haseo's friend Shino, and she fell into a coma in real life.

* TranslationTrainWreck: When one performs a CounterAttack in the arena, the English PlayStation 2 version mistakenly calls it a rengeki which means combo attack, when it really should be a hangeki which means counter attack. It also shows the kanji for rengeki (連撃) in the background instead of the kanji for hangeki (反撃) by mistake. Volume 1 also plays the sound for rengeki as well. Volumes 2 and 3 play the correct sound for hangeki, but display the graphics for rengeki. The Windows version fixes this.

* {{Combos}}: Yeah. Lots of them. The combat system revolves around them, actually; powerful attack boosts called "Rengekis" are done after doing significant amounts of combos on a single enemy but break the chain once executed, while combos of 16 or more will create a boost in morale from a party member.

The combat system revolves around them, actually; powerful attack boosts called "Rengekis" are "Rengeki (連撃)" attacks can be done done after doing significant amounts of combos landing enough hits on a single enemy but break the chain once executed, while combos executed. They double the damage done by a skill and guarantees one boost in morale per other party member that is alive during the rengeki. Combos of 16 or more will create a boost in morale from a some party member.members.


Added DiffLines:

* CounterAttack: Counter attacks are big in the combat system of this game. Either a skill or a charge attack can be used to counter a skill or item use in progress and interrupt or cancel it. If one performs a counter attack in the arena using a skill, it is called a hangeki (反撃) attack, raises your party morale as long as your other party members are alive, and decreases the enemy party's morale. They do not double the damage of a skill, unlike rengeki attacks. In the PlayStation 2 version, hangeki attacks are mistakenly called rengeki attacks. This is fixed for the Windows version.

* {{BFS}}: One of the classes is Edge Punisher. Their weapons are steam-powered swords, which are twice the size of their characters. Haseo can use them once he does the first upgrade quest in Volume 1.

* {{BFS}}: One of the classes is Edge Punisher. Their weapons are steam-powered giant swords, which are twice the size of their characters. Haseo can use them once he does the first upgrade quest in Volume 1. They excel at breaking armor and doing damage against enemies with hard bodies, but stink at opening up an enemy against rengeki attacks. Since they use heavy armor which is weak against magic, they are vulnerable to magic users.

** Anyone who has the Twin Blade job.
job. This class is great for dealing maximum damage per second against ground-based enemies without hard bodies or armor via DeathOfAThousandCuts and excel at opening up enemies to rengeki attacks, but is not very effective against armored and hard-bodied enemies and is nearly worthless against airborne enemies most of the time.

* SinisterScythe: Used by the Flick Reaper class. This class excels at taking down airborne enemies, and because its normal attack is a SpinAttack, it can take down mobs of enemies. This class is weak against enemies that get too close to the user and to magic.

* CantDropTheHero: Despite playing an MMO where anyone could be the party leader, Haseo can't relinquish the role; even if you have a way to revive him, it will still ask if you want to retry if Haseo dies. It goes further in that even though your party members get gold while you adventure together and can even level up outside the party, they never buy new equipment for themselves.

However, if you were smart enough to bring someone in your party that has Rip Maen in his or her skill list and you chose Free Will or Life for the strategy, he or she will revive you if you wait long enough, allowing you to continue the battle as long as you are not in the arena whose rules state that a team is defeated if the leader is killed.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: The English version of this game makes plenty of mistakes on whether something is singular or plural. These translation errors make sense if one has studied Japanese because the Japanese language requires that the writer consider the context of the noun in question to determine if something is singular or plural, while English requires the writer to explicitly choose singular or plural when writing unless the writer chooses to be very wordy to say that the noun can be either singular or plural.

** Kaotin in the Shadows is the same PK as Kaochin from Anime/DotHackSign. This is a case of two inconsistent but valid Romanizations in the franchise that is a case of SpellMyNameWithAnS.

* FatIdiot: He's a nice guy and all, but let's face it -- Gaspard is a little dim. [[HiddenDepths He's a genius when it comes to both being a salesman and his skill at card games, though.]]

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential:
** The game allows you to ''run over the little blue critters with your steambike''. Also on that note, you get more points towards the Book of 1000 if you hit monsters with the bike!
** Through trading, you can take back a gift that you just gave to someone, along with some of their other stuff. They'll ask you if you don't want to be friends anymore. Does this count?
** The RelationshipValues. Particularly the replies you can give in email conversations or forums. An example would be making fun (rather harshly) of Gaspard for liking the card game Crimson VS. And all it costs you is a little extra time putting them in your party to make up for it.
