    Well, this is awkward... a Slime Time episode about Final Fantasy! About a month ago @YangustheLegendaryBanditand I got talking about... well, talking. Talking more! We knew there were a great deal of former and future guests that wanted to get together and talk about some topics other than DQ. Heck, look at the forums & threads that get the most love around here more than a year after any news about non-mobile DQ titles. We're all playing other things so we figured we'd take a Sidequest and discuss other things. Thanks to @Pendy @RyuKisargi and @Bururian for joining us on this first foray, our first Sidequest!

    I feel sorry for those who will have to buy this all over again but I can say this much: It's a must-buy for any fan of this game who missed out on the Switch version

    ^ I mean, the fact that it’s portable gives it an edge over the other console versions imo.

    No set release date aside from August 2020, but we'll be getting a single player campaign complete with skill trees and other RPG mechanics. At the same time, the game will be retitled to Dragon Quest Rivals Ace, and add a bunch of new cards. More details coming August 6th, and I'll post them as soon as I have them.

    Hi@Xiggy! No worries, I'd be happy to post some screenshots and a bit more about the tools I use. At the moment I'm only using MadEdit (Hex editor), but in the past I'd also use NLZ-GBA (Rip/Replace graphics) and Lunar IPS (To make patches). I'll be sure to post some screenshots and videos soon. I did run into my first stumbling block with inputting text. The input screen stores the letters you select and the letters that appear as your name in two different places. I've also got a "Corrupt Data" message that I've not found on the cartridge yet. Otherwise, I'm getting close to having the menu done, which leaves the easy bit of any game, all of the dialogue!

    Funnily enough, it was 3rd one I was looking at. It seems straightforward so far, it's just going to take a lot of time. I've not got that far into playing it myself but I'm sure I will in the next few months. I put out a patch for it in the next couple of days, just to see if I can get the main menu done as well as latin alphabet input 🤔 Definitely an incentive to work towards! I should have it done summer 2030 at the earliest if that's okay?

    My problem with it was where it was placed. They should have had those mini arcs being told by the respect characters either after they joined or right before they officially rejoined the party. I definitely prefer how the original opens with the hero alone in Act 2 in his situation and has to try and find the others again. Putting all four of the new mini stories at the start of Act 2 kind of ruins the vibe in my opinion. I preferred being left in the dark on what became of everyone, so when you did find them again it was a sigh of relief they survived. Having them recount their experiences on their own to the hero would have fit in better with the story telling IMO. In Erik’s case, have him recount his story after you’ve finished the Sniflheim events in Act 2. I didn’t think the new stories were bad (except for Jade’s which felt unnecessary), but the placement of them could have been handled a lot better.

    We are still having a lot of problems with inappropriate behavior in team chat. I don't know if you guys have noticed, but a number of people have left the team over it. I don't want to start taking draconian action, but we as a team have got to start treating each other with respect. We are getting far too many people not showing respect to others in chat, or saying inappropriate or hurtful comments. I really have not wanted to take the step of setting up tools to monitor and log the chat, but I'm on the verge of having to take that step. Think about what you are saying in chat. It should be obvious already that we don't story spoilers in the chat. That said, occasionally a spoiler might slip through by accident. If someone is telling you that what you are saying is a spoiler, it's best to take that conversation to private pink chat. If you disagree that it's a spoiler, it's probably not a good idea to start a fight about it in team chat. Ask me if you are unsure. But really, the safest option is just to take your current conversation to private friend chat (the pink window) with the person involved and continue it there. If you feel someone is not being respectful or is showing disrespect, please notify me of it. I review things and will act on it if I feel action is needed. These issues in team chat are costing us members, and damaging our reputation within the community as well. We are no longer seen as the friendly welcoming and helpful community that we have been for the last 7 years or so. That is a really unfortunate situation for us to be in. We were always seen as the go-to DQX community and the best source for new players to go to. We've lost that reputation. We must get this situation under control immediately. It's been a source of frustration for many members of the team, both past and unfortunately now former members of the team that left over these issues.

    I intended this as a sort of showcase on how to deal with Estark Extreme solo, but decided on making it more like a guide. My timings were a bit off in this fight, so this isn't my PB, but it's an okay showcase overall for how to deal with him. You can watch in 4K, and it runs at 60 FPS. Also read description regarding thumbnail and info about this fight.

    I'll start by how/when I got the game, the story of which is longer than it is interesting, then go from there. I beat DQ11 on PS4 in January of this year. I had it since launch but I usually play big rpg's in chunks over a year or two. (I think it took me 2.5 years or so to beat DQ8.) So I wasn't in a hurry to get DQ11S until a price break. Come February, my fitbit's Best Buy Geek Sqaud protection was almost running out and the battery was crappy so I took it in. Now, I know I didn't pay more than 70 or 80 bucks for that fitbit but for some reason when they brought it up in their system it gave me $150 credit... Ok. I picked out the almost smart watch one as a replacement and then they gave me a $30 gift card for the difference. At the time DQ11S had it's first sale to $50 and I had Best Buy points to use. I walked out paying 16 smackers for DQ11S and a new watch! Now, since it had only been the month previous that I beat DQ11 on PS4 I wasn't too hyped to play through again so soon. I started the game and decided since I had already played through in 3D I'd only play 11S in 2D mode. It was cool seeing it on the big screen but by the time I got to Hotto I was kinda meh. Jumping ahead to May, with the quarantine going strong and my 4 boys and I trying to work out how to get them motivated to stay on task I promised Switch Lites to anyone that finished with a B average. (Yes it was going that poorly.) Welp, my youngest did good but his 2DS was trying to die and I had already cobbled it together out of hand-me-downs from the oldest two, so once I was able to get one he got a new 2DSXL. My third oldest squeaked by when we found out he hadn't turned anything in, stuff he had done just not submitted, for two weeks, two days before the end of school. That kid is smart and a total fact sponge but zero situational awareness. He got a yellow Switch Lite with a shiny Arbok sticker on the back. Now the oldest two... Such high hopes. They are both in HS and are best friends. They essentially failed 50% of their classes. They already struggle with school and the quarantine did not help. For not being blood related you can definitely tell they are brothers. I had a blue SL if one of them made it... So the blue SL had been sitting around for almost 3 months unopened and I decided it's mine. I can take it to work and leave the big Switch for them to play Smash and the family island (Xadia) on Animal Crossing during the Summer. Istarted playing DQ11S again and I gotta say that playing 2D in handheld mode on the smaller SL is making me love the game. Idk if it's the fact that I've played so many hours of DQ games on a handheld or what, it just seems to fit better. Playing during lunch and on breaks at work and sometimes turning it on over the weekends has got me to Gondolia and I'm going to keep going. I'm a big fan of the more traditional DQ turn-based gameplay in 2D vs the FF "wait" style of the 3D mode. I've never been one to cry about random encounters either, so that's been fine with me. Erdrea also feels bigger in 2D, playing through on the PS4 some times it seemed I was in a hallway. Having the orchestral soundtrack in 2D mode is funny to me, I guess my nostalgia expects more beeps and boops. The most bummer thing so far is the the fact that the horse race is still 3D only. If you've made it this far, thank you for reading my ramblings and I hope to update here with some of my thoughts as I play through.

    I picked up Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town on the Switch. Really enjoying it. I actually prefer it over Stardew Valley. I don't feel as stressed when it comes to the game. No quests and such to relax more to. Probably going to be playing this for a couple weeks. Still playing Animal Crossing as well.

    I've added a section for spin-offs. They're just the ones I own, but will add to it later (Both the list and my collection!!). There are links to guides/wikis for DQ3 now, so I'll add those to other games as I go too.

    A friend recommend Yakuza a while back so I bought 0 pretty cheap for PS4 but didn't get past the first chapter. Getting to lockdown, I've not finished the main story and am going through the side missions, but I might jump into Kiwami before much longer. TBH I was reluctant to start it because my wife and I were due to be in Osaka/Tokyo over the summer but obviously "Plans change", I'm really glad I got back in to it. The main story is great, especially the evolution of Majima, but I loved the silly side-stories. I've just battered a yakuza captain but OF COURSE I don't mind pretending to be your boyfriend to trick your dad!

    That's by design. Squeenix pays for them to do that. Saw so many complaints about this when DQB2 came out. Squeenix only promoted the Sony port. Nintendo only promoted the Switch one. It's by design, not Squeenix ignoring the Nintendo stuff. Oh, indeed. I can't recall a system I bought without being prompted by an upcoming DQ title.

    I'm of two minds. I agree with you and don't want to reward milking the same game. However non Switch owners have been asking for this ever since XIS came out. It's inarguable a good thing that other platforms are getting this content. I haven't decided if I'm getting it day 1. At the very least, once the modding scene for it starts I will get it on PC.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1h5a6TKxLL_9YaOk5zZEeofRBErALVERa6iq6tbouBSw/edit?usp=sharing Ok! Here's what I have so far. I went a little trigger happy on making sheets for all the sections of the compendium...... but so far the only one with anything on it is the weapons, and I've added the names and rarities of the ones I have. I also added the "effective against" for the specific weapon type i.e. all swords are effective against dragons. I didn't want to have the link give the whole world editing privileges, but if anyone wants to collaborate on it I can make that work! (Especially since everyone has gotten different pulls)

    Well, this happened: Used Lazarel with claws as a gladiator. No AI. Just solo on Estark Extreme. I CAN SUB THREE MINUTE THIS MAN. This is crazy. I believe I've found the most powerful DPS option in the game. Claws going in with uber white wolf claws, Divide and Conquer, then spam Blind Man's Biff. When you get tension, just spam it to kingdom come. Estark's health with just MELT. This is unbelievable. Claws alone are already one of the best move sets, but gladiator pulling this off? I don't see any reason to use other weapons for him. Claws have just about everything you're looking for minus a projectile. Even has a perfect block, that gains tension, and does damage no less. You can restore health, too.

    This guide served me well during my playthrough: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/3ds/726426-dragon-quest-monsters-2-iru-to-ruka-no-fushigi-na-fushigi-na/faqs/71935 And I hope you'll have the same experience with it as I did. A few minor errors, such as the moosifer (anklehorn) being confused with the very similar-looking abullddon, but nothing that'll necessarily ruin the experience.

    Each game added a lot of new monsters, until 8 when about 50% of them were from 1 through 5 as well as a few memorable or not too crazy-looking ones from 6 and 7, like the moths and notso machos. 9 has a good deal of repeats as well, and some of their uniques are actually palette swaps of old sprites, wonder wyrtle comes to mind or the new green healslime called sootheslime. Point being you'll find a great deal of monsters are only present in their debut game, it's not just 7. As for the monster wiki, I feel pretty bad about not keeping up with it. I should probably let Woodus know he can scrap it if he wants.

    It's not just you--I feel the same way about 2D mode. Something about about playing Dragon Quest in handheld...it simply fits. This may be an unpopular opinion but I personally feel the 2D mode of DQ11 is the best of the two modes--and I've now beaten it on both. Plus, if you play Switch Versions of DQ I, II, III and 2D Mode of DQ11 then you're getting the entire Erdrick Saga in the same basic DQVI graphical style, allowing for the continuity to feel more cohesive. Dragon Quest is also one of the few mobile ports I actually enjoy playing on a phone. It just seems as if Dragon Quest was tailor-made for the small screen.

    OOOH, LOL. I guess someone got wise, or made a correction realizing that would cause a stir/confusion. Cool beans. Though I have noticed there are now new wiki's for DQ, which is good, but it also means Flying Ragnar's, the best wiki, is buried more often than not, or just inaccessible, as the other three are just meh. At least the fandom wiki is dying, as that group is horrible in its presentation and while I've never written a page on it, I can't imagine it's as easy to use as others given how sparse most fangroup pages are, and how few use special functions, even in larger community pages (like FF).

    Here we explore the Fungeon! But, before we do, be warned; My Mini Medal count has been off since Part 21. You get a medal from the Gallows Giant and Belleau & Cabot fights, and I forgot to include them. They're not found like every other Mini Medal; instead, you get them automatically by beating their respective mini-bosses. The lists for all videos have been corrected! We've gotten all 106 Mini Medals! Nokturnus is all that's left!

    So I started looking into the characters who use the sword/shield move set, and I firmly believe Luceus and Aurora have a more fundamentally solid set of options compared to Lazarel and Teresa. Compared to Terry? Hard to say. So looking at their combo attacks, attack string, and aerials, there’s practically next to no difference between the four main protagonists. C1 is a charging slash that allows you to keep pressure up. I’ve found their basic combo pressure, without specials, is pretty straightforward. C3/C4 -> C1 -> repeat. However, I think Lazarel and Teresa’s charging slash has a bit more noticeable start up compared to Luceus and Aurora. C2 is practically unchanged between the four. C3 is a major difference. Luceus and Aurora undoubtedly have the better C3 with Power Cut. Power Cut does comparable damage to Lazarel and Teresa’s thrust, but it has the bonus of stunning larger enemies. Power Cut is available as an ability in the warrior vocation, but costs a staggering 14 MP for what Luceus and Aurora do for free. Lazarel and Teresa just protect themselves during the start up of C3, which isn’t as useful as stunning larger enemies for more DPS, or interrupting an attack of their’s. C4’s only real difference is Aurora uses Blizzard Slash instead of Searing Slash. Also this might be placebo talking, but I feel like Luceus and Aurora’s C4 overall is faster. It could just be because I’m more comfortable with their move sets. For Terry it’s noticeably slower to charge, and even execute an uncharged version. The only difference for the aerials is that there’s a ground cracking animation at the end of Lazarel and Teresa’s strong aerial (flipsaw). Any option you do out of strong aerial is the exact same for all four of them. However, Terry can execute his Flip Chop if you hold down the strong aerial button at the end of it, but Flip Chop is so lol bad, that I don’t believe it’s anything noteworthy. Lazarel and Teresa have access to everything else Luceus and Aurora do that’s tied to the sword and shield move set. Inferno Slash, Zap spell line, and Flame Slash. The only difference for Aurora is she uses the ice variations, but the only minor difference is these abilities have a chance to freeze targets for a very short time, so nothing to write home about. However, depending on vocation, Lazarel and Teresa have access to unique abilities that can make a large difference. The same goes for Luceus and Aurora who both have a unique skill not available to Lazarel or Teresa. The warrior vocation doesn’t really offer anything except far more balanced stats when compared to Luceus and Aurora. Gladiator is much more skewed to its enhanced dodge at +20, and high deftness and strength. Gladiator noticeably has very low HP compared to Luceus and Aurora, and lower bulk, and noticeably lower MP (probably being the worst MP in the game). Gladiator also has some of the most terrible magical might, if not the outright worst, meaning it recharges MP more slowly than Luceus and Aurora, nor can it use the Zap spell line as effectively. And since sword/shield DPS is pretty mediocre overall, that extra attack doesn’t amount to much outside of something potentially like Flame Slash. Luceus and Aurora also have inherently higher block power unless the Metal King Shield is being used, and the shields offered to Lazarel and Teresa can help reduce magical damage/breath damage by 10% even if they don’t block the attack. So something pretty minor overall. Now getting into spells and abilities, warrior nor gladiator can use Zap as well as Luceus or Aurora due to lower magical might. And warrior offers...nothing over Luceus or Aurora except Morale Masher, but again, that’s a more expensive Disruptive Wave. Everything else, aside from Spinferno, is something Luceus or Aurora have but better. And then Flame Slash can cumulatively do more damage than Spinferno. Gladiator on the other hand offers Blind Man’s Biff, Whirlwind Reaper, and Hurt Convertor despite the overall lack of stats compared to Luceus and Aurora. Whirlwind Reaper is an extremely strong projectile, and Blind Man’s Biff, while very slow and could possibly be avoided, is one of the single strongest abilities in the game. And Hurt Convertor is a slightly less expensive skill, while being faster for all animations, compared to Terry’s Miracle Slash. 14 MP vs 16 MP. So gladiator has more powerful abilities and the ability to restore its health unlike Luceus or Aurora. But not to count Luceus and Aurora out, Luceus is the only character who can counter physical attacks, abilities, and spells because of Rebuttal (basically perfect parry) and Bounce. Which is a powerful and useful niche to have since spells and abilities tend to make things frequently chaotic. Aurora also packs Helm Splitter, at a reasonable 8 MP, too. So she can debuff an enemy for the whole crew to do extra damage...which neither gladiator nor warrior can do. So given the overall ability comparisons, and standard kit, I’d give Luceus and Aurora a much better rating in terms of viability than Lazarel or Teresa using the same move set. Especially as a warrior. Gladiator can carve itself a niche with healing and more powerful abilities, but it cannot use its other abilities as well as Luceus or Aurora, and its overall support compared to both characters tanks. Also gladiator on average has much worse bulk in defense and HP, plus a much worse magical might, meaning this vocation doesn’t restore MP as quickly to spam those abilities unless you’re pretty conservative with them. And then compared to Luceus, its max MP is 13 worse, and 8 when compared to Aurora.

    DQVI brought a lot to the series that wasn't there before, was influential on the class system, and had some interesting mechanics to it (SFC version, specifically) but many players get lost on the non-linear aspects of it and end up disliking it. The music composition and character designs are top notch, too, just below IV for both. We're eventually planning a podcast about it sometime in the future. (Unlike the very vocal Platty) I'm of the opinion that this is an underrated DQ game. It'll be interesting record of me trying to point out the positive aspects of it, and Platty ripping on it through the whole episode. Haha.

    This is good for the series. It did well enough here to justify being released three different times, twice on two of the same systems. GamePass is also great because it’ll expose even more people to Dragon Quest who either didn’t want to buy it but were still interested or are chomping at the bit for an RPG on Xbox.

    Some things before I pass out tonight: -Based on observations with Roseguardians, the Boom line of spells ignore their block. Will test later for confirmation. Same for the other Zam spells. -If your character gets stunned by a roar, you can dodge out of it. I learned this from another player who also solo killed Dread Dragonlord. This is important in case you don't block his roar, as those pillars of flame can OHKO the majority of the cast even at level 99 with HP enhancing accessories. -There are extremely few characters who can gain tension through perfect blocks or Counterstriker. Luceus, Aurora, Lazarel, Teresa, and Alena are the only characters. Despite being able to use Rebuttal as well, Terry does not gain tension from a perfect block. It appears characters who have the whole sword/shield move set unlocked from the beginning, without the need to unlock Rebuttal through the skill tree, can gain tension through perfect blocks. The protags of DQ Heroes 1 and 2 fit this description. Alena can unlock Counterproductive which gives her tension with a successful Counterstriker. This is available by default for Lazarel and Teresa when using claws. Counterstriker is also the only perfect block to deal damage, and gain tension. Psaro's Riposte is the only other direct counterattack, but it does far more damage than Counterstriker to compensate for lack of tension gain. -Do yourself a favor and do not bother with any version of Dragonlord past his base form, and the AI as your buddies. They really aren't programmed well to handle this fight. -Classes worth investing in for Lazarel and Teresa tend to boil down to three: sage, gladiator, and priest/priestess. I cannot stress how useful their priest vocation is. It has such powerful support that really puts Kiryl to shame, though Kiryl is definitely better in a few ways. Mainly offense, but spear isn't much for DPS. -Luceus has a unique niche as the only character able to reflect spells and perfect block normal attacks. Plus he and Aurora also have inherently higher block power after unlocking that perk. Normal block damage reduced is 50%. Luceus and Aurora take that up to 60%. -Artful Dodger adds +5 to evasion. Ace Evader adds 10. I can only assume these mean additional active frames your dodge grants invincibility. -For any Jessica users, make sure you always pack Sexy Beam. This move is so absurdly busted that I started laughing when I found out. It guarantees stun on larger enemies (minus superbosses/wanted creatures/dungeon masters), which is absolutely enormous to have, but also slows them to such a considerable degree than you can go ham on them, and they cannot do anything. And it can do this twice because there's two hitboxes. No move else like it exists in the game, and its utility is also beyond reproach.

    I finally gave up this fear I had of sharing my translations on the internet, and have even started a YouTube! So, I am pretty proud of myself. I would like to, in spare time, start translating the DQ manga series in my own hand. I know there are some translations out there, but I would really prefer to do it myself. I have in my possession DQ VI Manga, but could easily get other books as well, with time and support. So! I am really excited to say that I will start on translations! Let me know what ones you guys would like me to translate. I will do my best to check in here as OFTEN as I can. But I make no promises. I would need help type setting otherwise, I am just going to make a huge doc (or something) with the images and the translations below the images. Unfortunately its the best that I can do right now. I could try putting them into youtube videos? with panning and music??? They would definitely get hit for demoneitized though www Please leave any ideas you can think of !

    Bianca changes from DQ Heroes 1 to DQ Heroes 2: In general, characters were immensely buffed from the transition from DQ Heroes 1 to DQ Heroes 2. Bianca is no exception. Aerials: -In DQ Heroes 1, Bianca cannot fire her arrows, then follow up with her strong aerial (the dropping knee). She can only do dropping knee, then bounce off a target and fire arrows. In DQ Heroes 2, this was changed, where she can fire three arrows, do her strong aerial, then follow up with one more arrow before finally falling to the ground. Plasma Dome: -Plasma Dome now has a very strong initial hit, followed by ticks of damage that range from 90-100 damage range. In DQ Heroes 1, there was no strong initial hit, and just did regular tick damage throughout. Rain of Pain: -Bianca packs the best Rain of Pain in the game as she fires ten tracking arrows instead of everyone else's six. Comparisons and contrasts to other bow users: -Bianca is the only one with access to the Frizz line. -Lazarel and Teresa can learn Snooze as well. -Other bow users fire multiple arrows for their weak aerial attacks. -She has the most aerial stall when firing arrows followed by Angelo, then Lazarel and Teresa. -She still retains her charges from DQ Heroes 1: Explosive Arrow -> Vicious Volley -> Turbo Shaft. Her Explosive Arrow is much shorter ranged than the other characters. -She is the only one able to dodge to the side when charging arrows. While she is dodging, the charge of her arrows will not increase. You can be used this to your advantage to stall out what arrow type you want.

    Notes about some abilities and spells: Lots of spells and abilities that rely on multiple hits, such as Rain of Pain, will only hit a target once. So if you try to use Rain of Pain on Estark, only one hitbox will connect. Two abilities are an inverse form of this: Sword Dance that is exclusive to Maya, and the Shining Shot ability with bows. Both deal a single hit of damage to any target, but there are multiple hitboxes that can connect. The more hitboxes connect, the more powerful the actual damage of the damaging hit will do. Maya's Sword Dance locks her in place unable to dodge cancel, like a lot of her abilities or combo attacks, so it's pretty risky to do. Shining Shot might seem like a good option to use against more powerful enemies, but multiple hits tend to miss, making it much more inferior overall. And compared to Rain of Pain, it lacks the coverage and targeting ability, making it worse overall. Hyper Sniper is better for single targets, and Rain of Pain is better for mobs.

    I did. 😘 A lot of those hours was from post game grinding to try and fight the super boss (but I gave up on that because Xenlon/Divinegon is a piece of #$*!) and some are from a replay with a Merchant, Priest, and Gadabout that I’ve slowly worked on the past few months when I need a little DQ.

    Sorry for reviving an old and very dead topic but for those who are interested, art of Mordragon and his tail now exists but it's not like regular monster art. It's the art from Dragon Quest of the Stars. It's something though I guess. I still don't understand why the usual Toriyama art of these guys isn't anywhere to be seen.

    Oh man, I loved loved loved that game. I so wanted it to be Dark Cloud 3. It wasn't. But I loved it No, unfortunately it wasn't. But yeah, I have it on a shelf upstairs and I walk by it every day when I do my son's bedtime routine. It's calling to me. I feel ya. Oh boy do I feel ya. One of these years I'm going to take a two week vacation and dedicate it completely to gaming.

    Listening to DQFM's Your Story podcast. Something I didn't really care about before kinda sparked in my mind from their discussion that was also mentioned in our own DQ Slime Time episode on Your Story. I'll try to spoiler tag it, in case no one still hasn't seen the movie, yet...if you haven't seen the movie why are you reading these words?! 😛
