New players!

Hey guys. Just a heads up the next month is rookie month in DQX. If your oldest character was made in the last month or so you're eligible. You cannot be above level 39 for these to appear.

 

What's going on is on set days and times if your oldest character on your account is made within 90 days of that event day (or if you were inactive for more than 60 days then for 90 days after your first login) you can go to server 9 and 10 where you will have a high chance of encountering "metal rookies". These are like metal slimes but their drop table isn't as lucrative as normal metals. They will only appear on these servers during these times though. So normal world grinding is your best bet to take advantage of this. Each event day will have multiple time frames where you can participate.

 

The date and times are as follows:

December 21, 2016 (Wed)

9:00 to 9:30

3:00 p.m. to 15:30

Oh I noticed they added ancient documents as rewards to a lot of quests like the photo quest in starting villages. These documents give you xp when used varying on the size of the document.

I've been doing the starting village quests, and I've been getting some of those EXP documents.  So far the ones I have gotten have all been worth in the area of 250 - 500 EXP as a ballpark figure.

Do you know when the angle slime hat is going to be expired? If we go beyond lv49 and class change to Lv1, will the hat still be in effective?

It doesn't expire. Mine is from last year. It just doesn't have any effect if the person using is 50 and above.

I'll bump this thread occasionally to keep it at the front. It's a really nice way to grind out those early levels in a class. As always when the hiroba site announces new dates I will update here.

Maybe I should use these along with a low level angel slime support AI to boost up Beastmaster and Machinist (what I would call ã©ã†ãã¤ã‹ã„ since "Tool user" is kinda weird). At least up to 40.

We refer to them as "item master"

Oh, this is gonna be great for leveling up! What's the best AI-type people to hire to take down these metal slimes? People with multi-hit weapons?

Anyone with 100 pts in fists. They get crit bonuses and the 100 point skill is a 4 hit attack. If my NPC doesn't have a weapon you can use me. I'm sure many other players are the same.

They just now posted about more Metal Rookie events in November. Dates/times are all JST:

 

11/1 2-4 PM, 8-10 PM

11/2 2-4 PM, 8-10 PM

11/9 2-4 PM, 8-10 PM

11/12 2-4 PM, 8-10 PM

11/15 2-4 PM, 8-10 PM

11/18 2-4 PM, 8-10 PM

11/24 2-4 PM, 8-10 PM

11/29 2-4 PM, 8-10 PM

11/30 2-4 PM, 8-10 PM

 

They said these events apply to both new players and "Welcome back" players, and will happen on servers 9 and 10, just like before. I'm assuming these groups are people who started/bought the game within 90 days of each event, going by the information posted about the previous events.
