  1. I have two of the Japanese guides. Here are some pictures I took of one, last night, that has room recipes with pictures. The text is in Japanese, but hey - the pictures are WICKED helpful.
  2. @Flute_Warrior You CAN, in fact, get into that room...but, it takes considerable work, can't be accessed during the demo, and isn't really useful until way later in the game: It basically requires you to break through several layers of mountain and enter the dungeon through the top of a stained glass window. You can find more info, here. There are a lot of cool (mostly green-shaded) materials to get, there. I believe, from the FMV, it's the green temple where the monsters worship in the opening movie. https://game8.jp/dqb2/259657
  3. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1mmy48E2ypcC-Wsqgaupsok97Ul0GEdtDgdKYFEnFWJ8 Here’s the link to the existing document. So...have fun!
  4. All right...I've passed 304h, 53m on this game and hit 97.7%, with 770 monsters scouted, bred, hatched, won, gifted, and transferred. I've hit the wall, and am stopping, for now. I have all the drops from F, E, and D classes completed, and several others filled in, in the other classes. At this point, I'm going to just...give it a rest, for now.
  5. Nice catches! In the main list, I had "Hell Boxle" down as "Tree Feller," since that's what his name was in DQ VI. Chocolate Golem is enemy 615, and Kagebou is 616, so I was looking at the wrong line. You're awesome for pointing those out to me.
  6. Here are some previews of the work I’ve done, so far, as I’m rounding out the edges and doing the post-game cleanup (having just beaten the post-game content, yesterday). You guys are awesome for offering to help!
  7. It is exactly as the publisher describes. The dust jacket is reversible (with the blue cover on the underside). It’s not a HUGE upgrade from the standard copy. The bookmark is your traditional stock paper fare, as is the lithograph. I’m not disappointed.
  8. Here’s an example: the map on the left shows the red chests, Masters spawning locations, and towns/dungeons; the map on the right shows the random item spawns.
  9. I ordered both versions, and just received them, this week. Excited to get into them.
  10. Heya - sorry, for not getting back to you in a timely manner. I’ve literally had the reply E-Mail sitting at the top of my inbox since the 16th, but between work and grinding this game (I just hit 200h, 02m and STILL have reached only 71.1% bestiary completion), it just keeps evading me. Once I finish up the Post-Game section, I’ll shoot you a copy of my spreadsheet that I’m using as a baseline. Send me a PM with your E-Mail address, and once I’ve completed Mistletoe Tower, I’ll send you what I have, so far. I anticipate that some monsters will no longer be available, which SUUUUUCKS, because I’ve been hitting the daily key downloads and trying desperately to beat the Asian online players in the GP tournaments (to date, I’ve won only a single battle). Also, Platty and Woodus - I have two of the Japanese strategy guides for this game (as well as several others) that have maps detailing treasure and Other Countries’ Masters locations. I know it’s a copyright grey area, but what is the likelihood that I could scan them and send them to you for uploading, so long as we use proper attribution?
  11. I've got six different Japanese wikis up, right now, along with 22 Dragon's Den Monster List tabs open (at least one for each main-series game to make sure I get the name translations right), five Dragon's Den item pages up to make sure I get the right item name translations. I'll admit, I am the ABSOLUTE worst at capturing images for the monsters (primarily because I use Excel, and incorporating photos in that program on a Mac is like unanesthetized urethral surgery). But, I'm willing to work with you guys on that. 🙂 Which leads me to the next idea: we need a standalone Item Index, with the following information: 1.) Japanese name; 2.) English name; 3.) Image; 4.) Game appearance; 5.) Purchase price; 6.) Sale price; 7.) Harvest points; 8.) Drop data; 9.) Use; 10.) Alchemy recipes. That'll be my next contribution, perhaps. 🙂
  12. Poor Woodus has had the unenviable task of looking at my databases, before, and putting them into the website. I'd like to see something similar to the PS1 DQM 1+2 package we got in 2002 for the Switch. The DQM Joker games were okay, but...I never really cared about or for the storylines. After DQM2, I'll probably tackle DQM Joker 3 Professional, so...
  13. Hello, hello! Once again, I'm playing through a Japanese DQ game and building a database of information about it. This time, I'm tackling Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru & Luca's Marvelous Mysterious Key on the 3DS. So far, the data I'm including are a comprehensive Monster List (including common and rare drops, scouting locations, breeding recipes, from which eggs they hatch, whether it must be traded, or WiFi gifts), Area-based monster lists, Egg hatching lists, Dream Egg hatching lists, the monsters owned by Other Countries' Masters, Monster Arena battle list, Mini Medal rewards, Costumes, and Scout Q challenges. This process is, of course, immense, as DQM2 on 3DS has 802 monsters in it; after about two weeks, I'm at 28.4% of that total (219 monsters). Also...my Japanese is rudimentary, at best. But, I managed to 100% DQ VII 3DS, DQ VIII 3DS, and DQ XI 3DS, so...I have faith I can complete this undertaking. At any rate, know that it's coming, and will hopefully be finished before DQ Builders 2 hits the shelves.
  14. Right? Both of the physical versions are on newly setup systems, too, and had me update them (through the eShop) before I even opened the software, and 1.1 was the update.
