How do I get Higher Level Treasure Maps?

Recommended Posts

I get my maps simply by just doing grotto after grotto killing the boss. It's getting pretty boring when the highest level map I've gotten is like 38. I want good treasure too, Best I get is 600 gold or something. Grottoes are getting really boring with this low level crap. Should I be getting maps somehow else? Or will I get good maps in time with patience?

There's an exact formula in the Dragon Quest 9 section of the main page that will show you how better maps are gotten. But here's the simple version:

 

The level of the grotto maps you receive is based on the level of your hero (not your other party members, just the main hero) and how many times he/she has revocated. So essentially, if you go into your highest-level grotto while your hero is Level 99, it's a good chance you'll get higher-level maps.

 

So basically, keep leveling up, and if you can, revocate. Then after revocation, get your levels up again and complete your highest-level map.

 

That's basically the simple way to tell it. ^^

Big trick is to revocate. Once you start getting to 4-5 revocations your chances for a better map increase quite a bit.

 

Check out the Grotto Calculator and the Grotto Names Explanations pages for more info.

Ewww lots of grinding...Well if that's the way to get high level maps, guess I have to do it. My main character is only level 57 right now 0.0

Is this a good team for now:

Me: Glad level 57 uber falcon blade

Prie(I know creative):Sage demon spear

Sara: warrior level 34 falcon blade

Kate: range level 30 ice axe

So I will use myself as an example.

 

I have a Lv 84 Grotto as the last grotto I completed, my hero is at Lv 99. Using the grotto calculator it would take me 1 revocation to have a chance at an A Rank Grotto, and 4 Revocations for a chance at an S Rank Grotto

 

0 Revocations

C 44.44%

B 55.55%

 

1 Revocation

C 30.55%

B 55.55%

A 13.88%

 

2 Revocations

C 18.42%

B 52.63%

A 28.94%

 

3 Revocations

C 5.26%

B 52.63%

A 42.10%

 

4 Revocations

B 45%

A 50%

S 5%

Is that how it worked? I always thought that once you revocated, you'd have a chance at S-rank grottoes.

You have a chance at S rank grottos... if you complete a level 99 grotto with 1 revocation, IIRC. But otherwise, you'll need more.

I finished a level 25 grotto and got a 44 then I got a 58 with that one! I only did a little grinding so my glad is level 60, thats all, and now I have a really high grotto!

I have just revocated once with my hero. Is it just your hero that needs revocating or is it all of the party? I'm L50+1 with my hero. Can you also continue and post down the percentages with 5 revocations to 10 revocations?

Just the hero's most-revocated class counts for revocations.

 

You can figure out the %s yourself with the calculator, based on the map you are completing.

YEah it's a large part luck. I just now found a copper(?!?) grotto that had Darkonium slimes on the first floor. :D I wonder what the 13th floor will have. :mimicgrin: rank 10 chests perchance?

You'll probably have alarmours, flamin' draymans, jem jamborees ect. If you are lucky, you'll get cyber spiders and boa bishops.

I'm not sure it's lucky, but I had plenty of those... And Sanguinus as the boss!! O_o' BTW Boa Bishops can use Tidalwave.... that SUCKS.

I would say you're lucky as I only have one grotto with Cyber Spiders and Boa Bishops. And it is a gold grotto. Yours is a Copper.
