DQX Questions and Answers

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the double post, but I have a question of my own.

 

I'm planning on buying a 3DS soon. Has anybody figured out a way to get the 3DS version of DQX working on an American 3DS using the Gateway exploit or something? I'd like to play DQX when I'm not home, and my laptop won't run it. (I'm planning on buying a new laptop but I won't be able to afford one I want for a good few months at least.)

I've run into an annoying problem. When I try to use windows IME to type in Japanese in game all that shows up are question marks. I don't have this issue anywhere else, outside of the game I can type Japanese just fine. Anyone else dealt with this issue? Maybe I accidentally changed something when I was fiddling with the settings the other day because I used to be able to do it.

 

 

Have you tried setting your System Locale to Japan? Just having IME installed doesn't do it. Games require the system to be set to use Unicode, and that is based off of your locale. If you configure your System Locale to be Japanese, you won't have this issue. It doesn't change the system's language or anything like that, so it's overall not a big issue to do it.

I don't have the 3DS version, but if I remember Phanir correctly when he was talking about it, it doesn't require an IP bypass. I could be wrong, though, it's been a while since people have talked about it since the release was horrid.

If this "Gateway exploit" allows you complete access to the Japanese eShop due to the game being download/stream only, it'll work. 

 

I have no idea what that is, but there you go.

I don't know much about the Gateway exploit. But there's this thing called Emunand (which I also don't know much about) that fakes the system software version. It's usually used for playing new games on old firmwares, but I think I've read about using it to fake region too... I'm not sure.

I remembered I have a capture card, which means I can just throw the game up on my computer and take screenshots of menus! So I can probably do some guides in the future, if anyone is interested. I was asked about the Expert orb, and why you would want to go through the effort of dealing with the RNG when it comes to getting 2 space gems and better boards. So here's a little explanation on that:

 

darkboardsetup_zpsbqyy2dia.png

 

This is how the dark board section of my Expert Orb looks currently. As you can see, I have 7 gems placed and 2 of them (Tiger Claw and the fan blind skill) are 3 space gems, if they were both 2 space gems I could place another gem. Like maybe the Sleep dagger success rate up gem if I go hunting for it, or something else. You only have enough SP to power up so many gems, and dark gems are weapon specific so you would ideally get a few gems for each weapon and only power up the ones you need.

 

I have Axe gems and Claw gems, if I were to go on Martial Artist which cannot use Axes I wouldn't care about powering up those gems. Instead I would power up my claw and fan gems.

 

Of course, there's always the idea that you could pop out the gems, place different ones, then pop those out again to place the others back when you are done. If you feel like earning 50k EXP each time you do that then go for it. After you pop out the gems, you cannot do that again until you earn 50k EXP. Light gems are class specific, so you'll need to earn 150k EXP in order to pop out both boards and replace them when you are done if you are taking this route.

 

 

 

I was also asked a few questions about Rine's special form of fusion known as ä¼æ‰¿åˆæˆ (Transmission fusion) works.

 

There are certain accessories (right now limited to the Choker from 3 Demons and Ankhs) which fuse with certain other accessories of the same type (Battle Choker and Brooches) in a special accessory fusion that allows the newer accessories to go beyond +3 and become a +4 accessory. All you need to know about this type of fusion is the following:

 

1. You need any version of the stronger accessory. So an Anubis Ankh (with no fuses) is fine, so is +1, +2, +3.

2. You need a +3 version of the weaker accessory. If using an Anubis Ankh, you need an Anubis Brooch +3. It has to be +3.

3. Fuse them together, and it will add one of the 3 effects (random) you have on the weaker accessory to the special ä¼æ‰¿åŠ¹æžœ slot of your accessory (normal fuses go under åˆæˆåŠ¹æžœ).

 

Common questions:

Q: Which order do I fuse the accessories?

A: You cannot fuse them the other way around in the first place. Rine won't let you fuse the Demons choker into a Battle Choker, or an ankh into a brooch. There's no option for that. It's always select the stronger accessory as the base and fuse with weaker. Always.

 

 

Q: When should I fuse the weaker accessory into the stronger one?

A: After the weaker accessory is perfect but only after the stronger accessory is good enough. You don't want to go through the RNG horrors of getting one to 2/3 perfect stats and then have that 1/3 chance blow all of that in one fell swoop. 

 

i.e: Anubis Brooch with HP 4 twice and HP 2 once. Fused into Ankh, and got HP 2. There are so many cases of this happening that it isn't funny. Don't risk it. Ever.

 

The stronger accessory being "good enough" is just common sense.

 

i.e: Anubis Ankh has 10 HP clean, while a perfect Anubis Brooch has 20 HP. The highest HP fusion effect for Anubis accessories is 4 HP, so if you fuse them right away you will end up with a 14 HP Ankh.

 

There is one extremely notable exception to this rule. The Osiris Ankh (weight up) is better than the +3 perfect Brooch. The brooch starts with 4 weight and gets +6 in total, while the Ankh starts with 8 weight. Heavy charge doesn't include the weight of fusion/alchemy effects in the 2x weight calculation, so in reality a perfect brooch is 14 weight (4*2+6) while a clean ankh is 16 weight (8*2). So not only can you fuse it in right away, but you should be using the ankh instead of a brooch if you have one.

 

 

Q: Does the stronger accessory need to be perfect before I fuse?

A: No. Normal fusions are separate, you can work on the stronger accessory as normal both before and after you do this.

@krw:  Thanks for the fusion info!  I've got my first perfect brooch, and still had a few questions before I risked fusing it (not that I have that Ankh yet, though I did get one at the same time you did from our Pyramid 7 run :) ).  Your description answered all of them!

 

 

I REALLY   hope they give us at least 1 more set of boards we can switch between at some point, as being a Magic Knight main, even when I get all of my gems to 2x, I'll be using up 14/16 slots on my Light board just to set the Magic Roulette gem, the Fource Break gem, and the 5 Fource gems...

Another question about the 3DS Version: 

 

I understand you're playing the game streamed, but does that also apply for the offline mode of DQX?  Does that portion of the game actually download onto your 3DS, or do you also have to play it streamed/while logged in?

Welp I just made a video about over 2 and a half hours long, in perfect quality, 60 fps 1920 res 1080p of doing the ogre starting all the way to journeying to Glen.  Which, leaves me some questions.  

 

1. Whats up with the pink slime hat? Noticed it gives me 3x the exp if I counted it right and seems to only work up to lv 59. 

2. Did quests and major story quests always gave a large exp and gold reward? Keep in mind, didnt play the online game since PC beta.

3. When I fought the first boss, before the fight began it gave me selection of 3 things. V2.0. V1.5. then something at the bottom, whats that about?  I can only speculate that it changes the boss's behavior patterns and possibly difficulty depending on what is selected.  

4. When I got to glen, it asked me something, default answer was No.  

5. When I did log into the online, my Sibling appeared in a dark screen, said some things, gave me a hat, what did she say exactly?  Kinda spooked me at first when it happened. 

 

ill post up Video in gameplay for any whod like to see. Once its uploaded and processed, it was a 45 gig file taken with the Bandicam Nvidia Codec. Basically the best quality possible using less resources, only possible with really good Nvidia cards. 

 

I hope menus and some basic skills and items get translated for Online use eventually.  Would love that, id be able to wanna play the game more if I had at least those translations.  In which case id be recording my entire play of DQX since this Bandicam is just so damn good for Video Recording.

1.  The Angel Slime hat is SE's way of helping new/returning players catch-up to players who have been playing for a while.

2.  From what I've heard, no, they didn't used to give those rewards.  This was changed to the way it is now before I started, though.

3.  Those are difficulty options.  Hard gives you 2x exp, Normal gives 1.5x exp, and Easy gives regular exp.  AFAIK, current Hard is the old default.

4.  It's asking if you want to set your save point there, since it's the first time you've been there.

5.  I'll leave the translation to someone else, but you got that from finishing the offline mode, as far as I remember.

oh ok. Damn no wonder he gave like 1.1k+ exp.  How much of the content has those difficulty selections?  I seen videos of alot of fights and yea they can be pretty tough specially the bosses with those status inducing attacks, so curious if they have most content with difficulty settings and as new content comes in, more old content gets that difficulty selection, or they all have it even brand new stuff?

It's on all of the story and regular quest bosses, as far as I know, including the newest V3 stuff.  It's NOT on coin/card bosses, strong bosses, gate bosses, super bosses, etc.

I'd tell you but it's been a while, but your character has to have made it online first. After new character creation is done it will ask you if you want to skip the tutorial. It defaults to ã„ã„㈠(no) just select yes and you're set.

There's a treasure chest in one of the 3.0 dungeons that has 3 casino play tickets in it, and SE has sent us a few extra from bugs, but other than that, I don't think so, at the moment.

Figured the Q&A topic would be more appropriate for some general information on the Mystery Tower. Here's a guide based on my experience with it so far:

 

-Mystery Tower (ä¸æ€è­°ã®é­”å¡”)-

 

The Tower is located at çœŸã®ãƒ‡ãƒ•ã‚§ãƒ«è’野B-5 so in order to play, you must have cleared 2.0 and have access to 2.1. No progress in 2.1 is required beyond the initial quests to actually leave the castle. My sub character at the start of 2.1 got the letter and quest pop while my sub still in v1 did not.

 

You start out at level 1 on the class you entered the tower on, there is a class change NPC before that so make sure you pick a good one.

 

- Basic Layout -

The Tower consists of 4 sections of 5 floors each. The 4th floor contains a boss, while the 5th floor is a rest floor before the next section.

 

- Regular Floors -

The bare bones of the Myster Tower, there are 3 of these floors before each boss and where all of the action takes place. Everything important is marked on the map:

 

Blue dots: Basic enemy groups. Defeat them to gain EXP, and possibly get treasure chest drops with equipment.

Red dots: The "key monster group" of the floor. This powered up enemy group has the key for the next floor, defeat them to unlock the next floor. Always seems to drop a treasure chest. 

 

Red Square: Battle Magic Square. Activating this will start a difficult battle, or possibly even a battle with metals. Defeating the group gets you a chest with an accessory in it.

White Square: Activating this either creates a treasure chest with MP recovery items, or starts a battle with metal/gold monsters. Defeating them gets a chest with coins to sell for gold.

Blue Square: Treasure Magic Square: Activating this creates a treasure chest with equipment in it.

Green Square: Strengthening Magic Square. Activating this summons either a fairy (trade 1 piece of equipment for a higher level version with the same alchemy effects), or the Mini Devil to either randomly change all of the alchemy on an equip, or to add a new random alchemy effect to an equip (your choice of option and equip).

 

You may (and should) activate every square on a floor.

 

Note: All equipment/accessories in treasure chests are not party wide. Everyone gets a treasure chest, but the equips your one contains will be something your class can equip. Accessories are randomized. The alchemy effects are randomized. This is content where being able to read effects on equipment is very important.

 

Wiping out revives everyone on the spot with full HP/MP.

Clearing a battle fully heals HP/MP.

 

- Boss Floor -

On the boss floor, before entering the boss room there are two important things in the room. A big treasure chest, and an NPC that sells healing items. In order to open the treasure chest you will need a å°å°ã®ç®±ã®ã‚«ã‚® which can randomly show up in treasure chests within the regular floors. Please note that the key to the chest is NOT party wide. It is entirely possible for someone to get the key and forget to open the chest. Make sure to try to open the chest once regardless of if you have the key or not.

 

The treasure chest contains tons of items, equips and accessories (tower use only) so hopefully you manage to open it.

 

Wiping out at the boss revives everyone outside the boss room with full HP/MP.

Clearing the boss fully heals HP/MP.

 

- Rest Floor -

This floor contains a few NPCs, some just have random tips, some are basic stores and the others are as follows:

 

Chakorot: Talking to him will give you the option to leave the tower. You may continue from this area anyway so if you want a break you can leave whenever.

Yggdrasil Spirit: Talking to him gives you an Yggdrasil Leaf provided you don't have one.

Pillar: Class change, class changing automatically removes all SP from your previous class, all classes are the same level.

Mini Devil: Allows you to swap your equipment for other equipment of the same level and keep the current alchemy effects on them. Combined with the pillar, this lets you freely change classes without losing anything. So if you end up getting gear that is better for another class you can swap to that class.

 

-Recommended Classes-

Priest: Naturally. Be sure to try out the HP regen spells! They really heal a lot here.

Minstrel: Multiheal is non-existent but never fear Minstrel can manage to get Hustle Dance on 16F-20F where you will really, REALLY appreciate the healing. There's really just too much to say about Minstrel and why they are useful in the tower. Since you can reskill at any time, you can just use weapon skills (don't forget to have the ability to slap some sense into teammates for the 2nd and 3rd boss!) until you get 100 SP then go full support for the highest floors.

Battle Master: Dual wielding Miracle Sword = Broken. Need I say more? They only need 57 SP to be crazy good and that's at lv19 (6-10F).

 

 

edit:

Important information for people making videos/casting Mystery Tower

- Before entering the tower you should be on server 21,22 (the okay servers for videos)

- You may record/cast Battle and boss floors provided everyone in your party agrees to it.

You may not record/cast Rest areas as they are not instanced to your party. Many players from many servers could end up in that area.

 

Of course whether or not you follow these guidelines is up to you, but don't whine if your video gets taken down for not following them.

Clearing the boss fully heals HP/MP.

Just as a note: In my experience, every battle (not just the boss battles) restore your HP/MP to maximum. Basically your MP reserves should be used considering the fact that you're going to get it all back once you're done with the fight (so don't be stingy).

 

Other than that, great info, thanks for this krw. Do you think we should make a topic about the Tower?

I got a few questions:

 

1) I know you need to be level 20 for the Dharma shrine and job change quest, but where specifically is the quest, and what specifically do I need to do to complete the quest?  Will I have to advance the story a bunch first, even if I'm already lvl20?

 

2) In the "Tsuyosa" option (bottom leftmost option in menu) where it shows how much EXP you need for your next level, there's another box that says "level 1" and.. seems to be something you can level up but I'm not quite sure?  Is this your profession skill? (I.E Blacksmith, tailoring) or some kind of subjob?  Should I immediately be choosing a profession anyway?

 

3) Where is the "toggle hat appearance on/off" option in the online mode?  I notice the menu expanded greatly when I got online and can't seem to find it

 

4) How/where can I store my items?  I know apparently that if you get a house you can, but aren't those very expensive, or can you get one fairly early/cheap, if so how? x:

 

5) If I hire a priest, is there a way for me to have them cast hoimi on one of my party members outside of battle?  If so how?

You have to kill a Golem in a certain area that I can't remember off the top of my head. It is just a regular monster, so no need to advance a story. But it will definitely require help to kill.

 

2) In the "Tsuyosa" option (bottom leftmost option in menu) where it shows how much EXP you need for your next level, there's another box that says "level 1" and.. seems to be something you can level up but I'm not quite sure?  Is this your profession skill? (I.E Blacksmith, tailoring) or some kind of subjob?  Should I immediately be choosing a profession anyway?

This is your fame level. Raising your fame level apparently lets you do various things, such as being able to put more items on sale at one time in the bazaar, and allowing you to accept certain quests. But I was actually coming here to ask the question. How do you actually raise your fame level? I have like over 500 EXP and it says there is 0 exp to next level, but it doesn't actually raise. Still level 1. I guess I am missing something. A quest?

 

3) Where is the "toggle hat appearance on/off" option in the online mode?  I notice the menu expanded greatly when I got online and can't seem to find it

There might be one, but I usually choose when I equip. When you equip a hat in the equip menu, you can choose whether to equip it shown or not.

 

4) How/where can I store my items?  I know apparently that if you get a house you can, but aren't those very expensive, or can you get one fairly early/cheap, if so how? x:

Go to any place with a safe icon and do the quest that they ask you to do. I think it was kill a bubble slime. Then you can store gold and 50 items. Edited by mazoboom

Thanks for answering my questions mostly, Mazo.  I'm still curious specifically where the dharma shrine is, and where the golem is, and maybe even how I should beat it (or do most people just get their high level friend to beat it?)  

 

In terms of the fame thing, I also have no idea how it really works, but whenever I went to the inn and paid 40 coins to sleep, I noticed that my fame levelled up to 2.  I don't know if it was because I slept at the inn, but I guess it's worth a try?

There is no shrine, but there is a representative at every tavern. You can get the quest from any of them when you hit 20. It would be difficult at level 20, but you could probably do it by hiring NPCs. Personally, I was already level 33 or so by the time I got around to it because a couple rounds of metal rookies + angel hat got me up there quickly (check here for more info if you don't know). At that point, I just needed to hire a healer, and I was set.

And, I have literally never slept at an inn, so I will check that out.

 

EDIT: Slept at an inn, and went from Fame lvl 1 to 7.  Thanks.

 

Also looked up where the golem was.  Leave the west exit of Glenn castle (グレン)  and go around F-6. (Once you've been there before, you can look at the quest and there will be a yellow circle on the map area).  Just kill one of the golems that are lying around in rock pieces.

Tull raise your fame level, stay at an inn (not your house) when you have enough exp.

 

Oops, was already figured out. I just skimmed past to answer the question lol.

A new day, more questions to ask! :3

 

1) How do I actually check all the skills/magic/passive stats I've learned?  I'm sure it's in the bottom right menu
somewhere, but that menu is massive and I don't want to accidentally change some setting that I shouldn't be changing
 
2) I encountered a shiny enemy, that was slightly different from it's "normal" version counterpart.  It was stronger,
gave more EXP and even it's design was a tad different (had a different hair style than normal enemy of that type).
Anyway it dropped some kind of item which looks like a seal of sort.  The item sells for 1500 G, and while looking at
it, you can press "Y" for more details and it shows a skill icon with a shield and then says "Lv 35" but the font
for "35" is like.. really close together.
 
I'm guessing this is some kind of skill book, and I definitely shouldn't sell it.  How exactly do these things work
though?
 
3) There's another unusual item I found as well, it looks like a Gleeban gold coin from Dragon Quest IX slightly (gold
coin picture, but it might also look like an amber fossilized egg in away).  It sells for 2000 gold, and I don't 
remember where I got it.  The first three characters of the item's  name are "urubua" and then there's 2 kanjis x:
 
4) Is there a way to adjust a party member's row?  By row, I mean, offensive classes typically start in the battle near
the enemy while mages/priests typically stand back.  Is there a way I can change that for my party members?
 

 

Also thanks, Mazoboom.  I ended up actually just typing in "Dragon Quest X Golem" on youtube and found one of Saigancat's old videos (That I remember watching when the game was still very new) which shows the location of the golem and how tough it can be.  Thanks a lot for telling me about the event. I managed to get to level 33 because of it, then I hired these people that had like 4 pages worth of passive stat abilities and they ended up killing the golem in like 30 seconds, lol.
