  1. I never thought to look there - thanks! I'm glad to see it's still a thing, I had so much fun with it post-game in DQM2 3D... Raising various teams of monsters and just having some casual fun with them~
  2. I recently got Joker 3 off the JP eShop a few nights back and started going through it. .. Is the "Free Battle" feature that the DQM2 remake had still present in Joker 3? Where you spoke to your sibling and could set up a battle against your own monsters controlled by the AI... Is that feature in this game (And if so, where may I find it?) or was that removed?
  3. Hehe, yeah it's old 1.) *nods* I saved before the Gryphon Statue thing outside the Pyrmaid then just rapidly tried to tame it. I got as much as 9% max each time, and after 11 or so tries it finally accepted! I promptly used him to make my King Hydra I had wanted for so long <3 2.) Metal and Liquid Metal slimes can be found easily enough in the Metal worlds, and they're not really 'rare' to me anymore since I've gone through a dozen or two each in the process of making my Diamond Slime I am however, very very happy with my Great Leviathan~ Didn't tame him, since I enjoy seeing him splash about in the Water World, but bred one of my own via Coatol x Poseidon. Love that big serpent soooo much <3 3.) I'm also quite aware of this feature Used it quite a bit, though as far as rare scouted monsters go I've only gotten Kid Leonyx and the Lemon Slime. 4.) I thought they disappeared if you saved and reloaded before them? 5.) Was the same in Joker IIRC too. I've gotten the hang of the Rebirth breeding now too, though picking a trait I want to graft onto the newborn is a bit um... Tricky. A lot of consulting the (google-botched) translated pages to see what trait I'd want to remove and what trait I want to keep. I gave my Tyrant Worm the Metal Body trait just because xD Andreal I ave AI 2 ~3 Action, and um... Well, just pretty straight forward stuff so far. 6.) I don't think I'll be scouting the Giant Monsters at this point. I was able to get Great Leviathan pretty easily, and Orligon / Mammodeus don't seem like they'll be too much harder. A Golden Slime won't take much longer to make, then I just need to win a quick boss battle and I can make my own Orligon. Same deal with mammodeus – but scouting's always an alternative indeed! One thing I want to know is if I can safely start a second adventure or if I'll need to switch SD Cards. I mean, if I can have a new profile and adventure on my current SD Card without losing all my progress, or if it's impossible. I don't have the 'New 3DS' so I can't actally access the hidden Nin folder on my card if I plug it into my computer, so that makes it impossible to just grab my save data, stash it on my computer, then start a new file and then replace it with the old data when I'm done.
  4. Wow, three days in a row the keys have been almost exactly the same lineup each time. Unless I'm mistaken, the key selection rotates once a day, from a given group... and this group cycles through every week or so? http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&hl=en&ie=UTF8&prev=_t&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=auto&tl=en&u=http://dqm2.com/capture/wifi-shop.php&usg=ALkJrhhx0eJzvzy80GhBVu35g_C6E-tkbQ This page here points that out with the Wi-Fi Shop at the very least, so I'm guessing the Gift Keys work the same way? This week I've been more or less swamped with 'God', 'Slime Ship', 'Demon Tank David', 'Warubou', and a few others with very very very little variation between each day. So I'm guessing that the "Group" that the keys are drawing from each day hasn't cycled off to another one just yet - assuming that's how it works and the keys aren't just either providing absolutely horrible luck, or something is keeping new keys from coming in...
  5. A few additional questions: Leviathan seemed to have disappeared from the Water world after I defeated Orligon (Can't summon him to cross the water, and he's not swimming about either). This is because of where I am in the postgame scenario right? Secondly... Will the Giant monsters ever return to the field again, or are they gone forever when I beat them? Meaning, will Orligon return to patroling the Desert World every night, Leviathan splashing around in the center of the Pirate World, etc. Will they return to the field after I fully clear the postgame? (Assuming they do return, will I again need the Custom Monster in my party should I choose to fight them?)
  6. Yeah you need the custom monster I think it has to be part of the main team. Alright thanks, that makes sense :>
  7. So I'm in the postgame now, reached the top of the Mistletoe Tower and talked to the dragon at the top with the Custom Monster you started with and watched the cutscenes that followed, and according to this guide: http://www.gamefaqs.com/3ds/726426-dragon-quest-monsters-2-iru-to-ruka-no-fushigi-na/faqs/71935 I'm supposed to go to the Desert World and fight Orligon now. (Edit: I tried making the link into a text-link, but I kinda botched it and the link got messed up, so just pasting it in without any fancy URL stuff.) Problem is, while I can withstand his attacks just fine, after a few turns he forcibly expels me from the battle. Are the giant monsters always going to kick you out of the battle after a certain number of turns? I thought that they'd not do so after you reached this part of the game, but I suppose I was wrong XD My current party is pretty much: Lv68 Swordgon (+50) - Nothing really special to offer attack-wise (I love this guy a ton though <3) Lv69 Rainhawk (+82) - Best attack is Aurora Breath Lv55 Metal King (+62) for healing, since the mon I usually carry is still leveling after the last breeding attempt. Reserves: Lv41 水竜ギルギッシュ (Gilgesh the Water Dragon?) +25 Lv38 Dracolord 2 (+81) Best attack is Grand Cross Andreal's not really ready to be brought into difficult battles yet at around level 31, so I left him at the ranch. Not that the other two are exactly stellar examples either, but at least they can take more hits in battle. I used a Rebirth breeding with him so he's an SS+ now, and gave him the 2~3AI Trait (Probably could have picked better, but my understanding of the system was limited at the time :L ) Do I really need to fully defeat Orligon in this limited amount of time, or is there something I'm missing here? Do I need the Custom Monster with me when I enter the battle?
  8. Once you get the herbs, you talk to the adviser/minister by the Queen. He'll give them to the Queen, and then boss fight should ensue. After that you'll be able to head to the forest to get the Princess's Soul.
  9. I got the View Results to work on Opera, but it reverts everything back to Japanese after I click it, so it's not all that useful it seems. I can't select any of the text for some reason, so pasting it into a separate Translate window isn't an option either. One of the things I'm looking for is a key that has D-ranked Nature monsters in it, since that's one of two ways to get the Giant Worm monster if I'm reading it right (the other being from White Dream Eggs) I know it's not a particularly 'epic' monster to be looking for, but it's still on my wishlist - I adored the guy in Joker 2 since I had a softspot for underrated and/or unusual monsters
  10. Are there any sites that have the whole list of Self-made key prefixes and suffixes? I ask because one site only lists a handful (Some 'useful combinations', but doesn't give a complete overview) and game-cap has them stuck away in a drop-down menu where Google Translate can't hover over to view the original/translation - you have to be in one or the other and it resets your input if you switch. It says what each one does (Rewards and etc) but you can't view the original while in Translated mode or visa-versa. The 'Display' button doesn't show the results, at least not for me. *edit* http://game-cap.com/dqm2/data/renkinlist.html Alright, I took it out of Google Translate and went to the original page (Not "View original", but to the actual page) and it displays the Key results perfectly. Don't know why it wouldn't while being Translated but oh well.
  11. Ah gotcha. Makes sense, so I'll just have to keep re-doing 'em until they're maxed Oh thank goodness. I really, really, really despised the Captain Crow requirements in Joker/2 with a burning passion, so it's good to see that's a thing of the past. Or is likely a thing of the past, given the rank worlds heh. Huh, I wonder how many high-end monsters they'll end up giving out via Reward Keys. I mean, now that there's a ton of new monsters tossed in, I can see the "free" ones really helping things along so it's not as painfully tedious to 100% things.
  12. That's awesome, I wonder if it's temporary or if they're permanently adding to the pool of keys to choose from...? On a side-note, I did three WiFi battles in a row (third one disconnected halfway through....) and when I checked the streetpass thing only one person showed up on the list, and only one slot was added into the Dream Egg's lineup :/ At this rate it's gonna take forever to get those filled up XD
  13. Okay, so got my third Gift Key. First one was some Slime Ship, second one was a laaaarge gang of monsters, and the third one... Seemingly was the Slime Ship again, so I declined it and asked for another. This one pitted me against.... ...Warubou and Egdracil The latter being the resident "cannon fodder monster" and Warubou being the real prize. I don't know how rare Warubou is supposed to be, but if anyone's looking to get him his key is apparently up on WiFi Gift right now. (I get him and Watabou mixed up easily, it might have been Watabou people were asking about?)
  14. Heal Slimes wandering around in the Pirate World should have a good healing set, and I've seen the Guard set around often, though I never really payed much attention to who has/had it. http://dqm2.com/skill/gaado.html shows what monsters have the Guard skill. As for how many monsters you can have... I'm not sure, someone else will have to answer that one. @Singularity: Ooooh thanks for that second link! Seeing the pictures is a great help, especially for when Google Translate murders the translations to incomprehensible gibberish On another note, the "Search" feature in-game at the Starry Shrine is a huge help if you're after a specific monster. Second option down, opens up to a few criteria you can define... It defaults to "Anything and everything" First option: All Monsters / Breedable Monsters only (Won't display monsters you don't have the requirements for) Second option: All Monsters / New Monsters Only Third: Limit to specific family / all families Fourth: Limit to specific Rank / All Ranks Last: Search! Definitely a help if you're after a monster or monsters with more obscure requirements and don't want to or can't go out and Scout one yourself. It can be a touch misleading if you have a rare monster that can Rank Compound into something else (As an example) and you don't want to part with that monster. When I got my Rainhawk it opened up a ton of A ranked monsters that could be derived from Rainhawk's S-Rank, and I didn't want to do that! XD I ended up using my WiFi Gift-key monsters to make a few of them though, since neither were ones I was keen on keeping anyway. On that note, is there any absurd Captain Crow-esuqe lineages in this like in Joker 1 and 2? Where there was a single "One Per Savefile" monster that was used in half a dozen high-end monsters multiple times and thus ensuring it was difficult/impossible to get certain monsters on your own? Long and tedious chains are one thing, but when they involve a monster you can't get ever receive again, that's a bit unfair. Getting one randomly from WiFi I'd still say is a bit unfair, but at least you have the possibility to continue with your chains. Not a "One-per-party" limit like the Giant Monsters of Joker 2, but a literal "Once you breed it, it's gone for good" monster like Crow and I think Watabou was in DWM2. Since Crow showed up multiple times in some lineages in Joker/Joker 2, that was very unfair for people like me who at the time had no way to access WiFi and thus had to resort to using Action Replay's just to get a monster that you liked but couldn't get again due to Crow disappearing. (I did NOT want to part with my Dracolord when I found out I'd never get him again once I bred it, due to his Captain Crow requirement) *Edit* As to not make multiple posts, will just add to this one. Are self-made key rewards supposed to be so..... Rare? I have a key that has you defeat a low rank material monster, and when clearing it the results are - as far as I can tell - showing you the odds of receiving it. There's three lines, and then a fourth that I'm assuming is the 'final result' of your chances. This time around, which is the highest I've seen it come so far, resulted in: 0.0004375% x 25 x 25 x 5 > 1.36719% If I'm only getting 1% odds on receiving the reward (Appears to be a monster... マンラゴラ ?) I have to wonder - one, is this reward worth trying over and over to get, and two is if there's any way to raise your odds other than trying for an S rank every time?
