    For once, Pokemon could work in their favor instead of against them: “Hey, you know how you’re all mad a large chunk of the Pokémon roster is being cut...buy DQM:J3!”

    Took me longer than I anticipated and pastebin messed with my formatting a little, but here are the first four chapters ready to read. Chapter 1 https://pastebin.com/GyTkcH6h Chapter 2 Alena https://pastebin.com/r82b2qza Kiryl https://pastebin.com/aT37enxT Borya https://pastebin.com/v15urfzX Chapter 3 https://pastebin.com/1NZ1AvXC Chapter 4 Meena https://pastebin.com/SjxYtmUB Maya https://pastebin.com/Xu72WE4f Oojam https://pastebin.com/myYdhvNL Can't give any ETA's for chapter five, but I will be chipping away at it when I am able. If any lines are missing, let me know along with the context and I'll add them back into the main document.

    The upcoming Dragon Quest Your Story movie could be the reason. Since it’s based around DQ5, people will either check out the mobile version or replay the mobile version, so adding in an accessory like this could be tied in with the film. Or maybe Yuji Horii was like, “You know what sucks? Trying to recruit metal monsters on DQ5. Let’s add an accessory to help with that problem!” And then he snapped his fingers and magic happened.

    I would play the Erik Monsters game and I could see a 45% chance that it makes its way over to us. There hasn't been one in the US since the DS so it would be a good way to introduce fans to the side series in a modern setting. Hell, they're even localizing a Monster manga...that's pretty niche in itself and can't be for nothing.

    This likely won’t be seen if I put this in the anime topic, so I’m putting this here: This post was actually gonna be longer but I think it’s enough to say my heart goes out to those at Kyoto Animation today. I’m sure you know by now what happened so I’ll simply say that they’re an anime studio known for beloved shows like K-On!, Violet Evergarden, Clannad, Sound! Euphonium, Nichijou, Free!, the Haruhi Suzumiya series, and the movie adaptation of A Silent Voice. They’re also celebrated for being one of the healthiest animation studios to work for in Japan, an industry that does not normally pay or treat animators well. There’s a Go Fund Me set up by Sentai Filmworks that’s earned a lot in a short amount of time that will go directly to KyoAni: https://www.gofundme.com/help-kyoani-heal

    Likely, it's because JP is getting the DQV movie, and the item was added to the base game. We're getting it because it was easy to put in the international release.

    Hey all, this is a fairly straight forward thread. Here I provide you with any and all pre-made guides, helpful hints and wiki's being worked on outside of what will eventually be collected and housed on this site for Builders 2. Have fun! Beginner's Guides: https://www.polygon.com/guides/2019/7/12/20690979/dragon-quest-builders-2-beginners-multiplayer-townspeople-changes-improvements-switch https://gameranx.com/features/id/176756/article/dragon-quest-builders-2-10-tips-tricks-to-help-you-become-a-master-builder-beginners-guide/ Large Compendium Guides: https://twinfinite.net/2019/07/dragon-quest-builders-2-guide-wiki-tips-tricks-guides-more/ https://www.gamepur.com/guide/41738-dragon-quest-builders-2-room-recipes-all.html Note that gamepur is up here because it's bloody strange, just pick any article, scroll down, and it connects first to all related articles, in this case anything labeled with the same game name. Keep scrolling past and it goes to other games. So there's no point in linking individual pages as it just continuously loads all of their pages in one stroke. Since there are a range of articles it counts as a mini Compendium.

    We succeeded hosting the 10th Anniversary events in Akihabara Tokyo. We appreciated that over 60 players came to our event, including DQIX Legend players, Kansai & Tohoku players, and Mr. Fujisawa, the DQIX director😆 Unfortunately I haven’t tagged Mr. Fujisawa but most of my seniors had. BTW, there are no foreigners in the event but myself. So I don’t need to speak English or Chinese to serve anybody. Also congratulates Liam for a successful NYC 9th Anniversary event!

    My favorite Dragon Quest scene is actually the finale of the spinoff Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime, which spectacularly pays off a few points from the earlier story for the final battle. I think my favorite overall stories are VIII and IX, though.

    Went back to Furrowfield Island because I missed a mini medal somewhere. I spent like an hour retracing the locations. Turns out, I finished one of the puzzles, but forgot to grab the medal.

    I got an infinite supply of wood from the island and I'm 2 items away from getting the infinite of dry grass. I wanted to make sure I at least got the wood and then I messed around a made some farms and a kitchen on the island. I ended up going back to Furrowfield to get some materials and finished up the mini medal puzzles there. I'm excited to finish up the tablet and move onto the next main island.

    If Nintendo was responsible for bringing over the new Monsters game, and provided the newest Monsters game has the same massive library of monsters and then some that the Tara and Cobi remake had, they could easily copy Smash Bros. Ultimate’s advertising with an “Everyone is here!” kind of slogan. Promote like crazy that monsters from every corner of the Dragon Quest series, be they from main game, spin-off, or otherwise, is going to be in the newest Monsters game and can join forces with you. For fun in the Japanese trailers, Square Enix could poke fun at themselves about the over abundance of recolors on Joker 3/Joker 3 Professional and show off that the newest Monsters game isn’t going to have that same problem.

    I’ll be curious to see what happens with the new Monsters game. I can see Square Enix USA actually giving a #$*! about it because they can promote the hell out of Erik being the main character since he’s from DQ11. But on the other hand, depending on the console it releases on and because it’s a Monsters game, Square Enix could easily pretend to ignore it and be like “What Monsters game? You guys are nuts.”

    The buildapedia is super helpful if you're trying to build specific stuff again. It's not been too useful since we've only dine the first island and know maybe >10 room recipes but in due time it'll be needed.

    Pretty sure that's what will happen too. I think I saw the second island is mining focused and I've seen screenshots of a better hammer. It is kind of lame you can't break most of the blocks that form the hills around the water area.

    Pause the game and press Square (or whatever the Switch equivalent is) to see a bigger version of the list. I used the side island to grab a ton of seeds because they are very plentiful there and every time to go back the island shuffles.

    Really strange to see a new item added to a game which hasn't had any thing new added in 11 years. IV and VI has altered and/or added content on mobile compared to its DS counterparts, but all V got was some small balance changes like tweaks to MP costs. Also I haven't checked every single party member in the game or anything, but at first glance it appears only our purple-clad hero can equip it, so no need to purchase more than one.

    I don't think so because I noticed the same thing. I think I'll do something like you and make my own little area for a village. I love the idea of an area with lots of nice water around it (river and waterfall).
  28. 1 point
    Right next to the waterfall you created, I leveled some of the land off to the left of the waterfall against the rock. I have built a social bedroom, an Agricultural kitchen as well as a regular kitchen with a dining room on the second floor. I have also put a bathroom next to it so I have a continual supply of nightsoil. I also planted Pumpkins, cabbages, wheat, and Strawberries along the riverbed. The only minor complaint I have is that the worm food will cover the current plane you are on and everything below it if the land slopes down, but it won't go upwards at all, if that makes sense. Is there a way to do it that I am missing out on?

    I've finished the first island, and have gone to both Explorer Islands that you have near immediate access to once you get back. I have also done the first Isle of Awakening Tablet and am doing the optional tasks from it as well. The 2nd Island is open to me now but I haven't gone there yet as I wanted to get a small established base and crops going for the main island. The Tool you get for swapping walls in a godsend. So much better than the cladding item from the first game.

    That would have been really cool if it didn't mean literally 75% of the game was a tutorial. To me the issue isn't whether people ask you to do stuff... I mean, having clear goals is exactly what separates it from Minecraft and makes it its own interesting thing. The balance is in how strict/open what they ask you to do is. Like even after you crash the ship in the demo, you're still drawn along a line of going to very specific places and doing very specific things. An event happens and you are expected to go up to the top of the mountain the be given the hammer, etc. It's so tightly dragged down a specific route, that it feels completely pointless to even be playing the game. I might as well be watching just one long cutscene of someone else doing it - there's really no difference - all the qualities of the fun atmosphere and quirky dialogue would still be there. It's what makes the majority of DQB1 and the entirety of the DQB2 demo feel like a tutorial to me. No matter what, I know I'll be enjoying DQB2, because I at the end of the day I enjoyed DQB1. And simply being able to return to old locations, and not being punished for faffing about building your own ideas due to the existance of some pointless "challenge", are two changes that are enough to immediately make me like this game a lot more than its predecessor. But I just really wouldn't mind if they'd improved the whole quest structure thing, too. Really.

    That's me! 100% me! I get that so much. With limited time and so so many awesome games out there I want to play, it's a difficult mental hurdle to leap. I was all in on Octopath Traveler and loving it, but after seeing "The End" 8 times and credits rolling, I just couldn't do the post-game story. I don't do it in Pokémon either or most any other game. The past decade the most I've done is DQXI, Fantasy Life, and DQHTWTWATBB. Others, Meh.

    Yeah my 3DS seems to play it fine. I've put it in sleep mode a few times to try and it's been fine so far *knocks on wood*. I have no problem playing on my 3DS, I'd prefer to play it there but it's nice to play it on the system it was made for every now and then.

    Don’t buy games that can be counterfeited from a GameStop. There’s no quality control. I’ve seen photos of obviously bootleg games sitting right next to authentic ones. At least when you buy a cheap game from China on eBay you can expect to get a fake. GameStop will just sell it to you at full price. A couple years ago I bought Pokémon White used from them and thought it’s authenticity was a bit suspect so I did some research into bootleg DS games: 1. Compare the serial number printed on the label on the front with the one on the back. There should be 4 letters that match with each other. 2. The labels can also oftentimes be slightly crooked on a bootleg cart, whereas a legitimate cart will be perfectly straight. 3. Also, if you have a DS game on hand, compare the Nintendo logo on the back of the legitimate cart to the suspected one, the Nintendo seal on the label as well. 4. The thing Platty posted. 5. But most importantly, so long as it’s not modded, your 3DS shouldn’t have a problem playing it. I’m no expert, these are just tips I found online a couple years ago, but these should eliminate or confirm your fears.

    That's pretty funny. I have 5 right now and just got back from Furrowfield. I might go back and clear them up but I need to push my eyes back into my sockets before playing the game again.

    Hahaha, I imagine that's because DQ gameplay is actually very straightforward Go and Examine/Talk gameplay. They aren't trying to find new gimmicks. Any favorite parts of the series?

    I had found the DQ8 guide book when I was nearing the end of my first playthrough of the PS2 version (or the start of the 2nd, it’s been too long so I can’t remember exactly) and I found the alchemy recipes to be the most helpful part of that book. The guide may be awful for actually telling you how to make progress, but it’s super helpful as a resource for item locations, recipes, and what have you.

    We'll no doubt have at least the regulars, which is enough for a fun time. We'll see who else we can get. It's a bigger challenge for NY, with a niche audience. Here's my post about it: https://www.reddit.com/r/dragonquest/comments/cbzina/dragon_quest_ix_9th_anniversary_nyc_multiplayer/

    DQVII is my favorite, but I also loved the story and the partychat/characters. It didn't drag as much as most games of that length. DQXI is closest to DQVIII although I think slightly smaller. It's still a good game.

    You need to invest a specific amount of points into each skill before you see any bonuses. For the hero for example, once you get the minimum for the first sword skill level, you’ll get an increase of +5 damage for swords. Keep leveling it and eventually you’ll earn skills like Flame Slash and Metal Slash. You’ll want to focus on a specific weapon for each character. Going swords for the hero and axes for Yangus is a good place to start if you are unfamiliar with the game. You should also invest points into each character specific skill. Yangus’s Humanity skill line for instance will give him support abilities he can use to help the party in battle, while the hero’s Courage skill line gives him some useful spells only the hero has access to. The skill point system isn’t broken; you just need to hit the right amount of points for each skill level. I can respect you want to play blind, but you should consider at least looking up a skill point/skill level guide as a reference for how many points you’ll need for the next skill level up. As for alchemy, you don’t earn them from monsters or buy them; that’s not how the game gives them to you, nor is it said in the game. You earn new recipes by talking to NPCs or reading books from bookshelves. What you earn from battles/buying in shops are specific materials you can use for alchemy, but all recipes are earned outside of battles and buying. You’ll want to try different items for the alchemy pot. If a combination of items doesn’t work, the game immediately spits them back out and tells you to try something else. Once you do find a working combo, the game will start the alchemy process. You can cancel the process at any point before the item is made, so if you don’t want to lose a specific item or change your mind you can cancel the alchemy pot before it finishes (you’ll know when it is finished when you hear a “Ding!” sound.) Dragon Quest VIII isn’t broken by any means. I played the game blind on my first run back in 2011 and I did perfectly fine. Focus on one weapon line and the specific character abilities for your skill points, don’t be afraid to experiment with the alchemy pot, and be sure to read at every bookshelf you find.

    Oof I made more of the Dragon Quest characters as dragons (specifically the dragon tribes in Wings of Fire) Auster / Arus as a NightWing because simply, I liked the design though it could fit Kiefer as a SkyWing-IceWing hybrid because I honestly couldn't choose between the two, and it sort of fits? Idk And Gabo / Ruff as a RainWing-MudWing hybrid because simply, I couldn't fit him into just one category I might draw some more of these for more practice drawing dragons, though I think I'll eventually do some digital art of them as humans
