I was less equipped and leveled than that, so I'd say yes.

How? I got there before and enemies were killing me in two shots, with their speed higher than mine so I couldn't attack.

I got to Rimuldar at level 7. All I bought was a leather shield and iron axe. Oh, and a dragon scale.

Right, hoping to get this finished so I can start on II. I'm level 18 with Erdrick's sword and armour and a silver shield. I've rescued the princess and I'm going to take a crack at the dragon lord. Are there any specific tactics, spells or items I should be using?

I think you should be... what was it, 26? And apparently Hurtmore works well.

Seriously? I had a go at him but his second form crushed me. If there's nothing else to do in the game but grind myself up another 8 levels with no more places to explore or equipment to find I don't think I'll bother finishing it. It's a shame because I was going to try to do all of them but hours on end fighting the same enemies with no exploration or discovery sounds miserable.

Generally by level 20 or 21 you should be able to defeat Dragonlord without too much difficulty, barring bad AI luck..  26 is way overkill, and it is possible at 18 (but very hard).

I agree. I usually take a shot at the Dragonlord at level 19. But 20 or 21 is a little easier. I don't waste much MP with spells like Fizzle or Snooze. They don't seem to work. I just physical attacks and Midheal. I can't remember if Sizzle works on the Dragonlord or not. Like I said, I just save my MP for healing.

 

If you need to level up, the Red Dragons are the ones you want. They give out 300 or 350 exp so you should level up quickly. Metal Slimes give out more of course (somewhere in the 700s), but they don't show up as often around Domdora as the Red Dragons do are on the bottom floor of the Dragonlord's Castle.

 

Hmm, what else... Oh yeah, your stats' rates of increase depend on your Hero's name. I don't remember the exact formula, but it may be that you're having a hard time at level 18 if your HP or strength stat isn't as high as others'. Maybe your Hero's name gave him better MP growth or something.

 

In any case, give it a little more time.

Pretty sure in this version, your name has no effect on stat growth.

 

I agree with your Dragonlord strategy: Attack until you need to heal.  Then heal.

 

Bring a full stock of med herbs to heal yourself on the way to the boss, so that you conserve MP.

I did a bit of grinding and tried again at level 21 and beat him :) Loved the ending, it was brilliant.

That's great news. Glad to hear you beat it and liked the ending. Awesome! :D

I've only finished IV, VIII and IX before so I'm going to play them all in order (dreading VII).

Aww, don't dread VII. With all the changes they've recently made to the series, it's becoming a much more casual and manageable experience. I bet VII will be just as fun as the others. And the story is very, very good. Just make sure to go into it knowing that you're going to have to spend some time on it. Not a lot, none of the sidequests like the Immigrant Town, Monster Park, Casinos, or Mini Medal collecting are absolutely necessary. I've even heard that going overboard mastering tons of classes isn't necessary. Pick a few you like and ride those to the end.

VII is the best game in the series.  It might be a long game, but it's one of those games you don't want to end.   Don't listen to people that say you need to spend hours and hours of grinding because it's not necessary.  I may take 80+ hours your first time through, but it's time well spent.

Agreed.

 

Although I say that about DQVIII and DQV too.  Haha, they're my top 3 - hands down.  You don't have to do more in DQVII than you want.  It's all about what you want to put into it.  80 hours for a non-hardcore-grind sounds about right.

The only Dragon Quest game I haven't played is VII. I was planning to for a long time, but I was holding off for the 3DS remake. Since it seems like it won't come to the west I'll give the PlayStation version a shot.

Metal Slimes are often found at the bottom of the continent where Domdora is. Once you get Erdrick's Sword in the Dracolord's castle, you can defeat the Metal Slimes with one hit and you rarely miss. I farmed 5 levels in 1 hour, when level grinding to fight the Dracolord. It was abit overkill, but I was having fun beat alot of metal slimes :P

I'm level 21, with Erdrick's Sword and certainly do not kill them in one hit.  What level were you?

I started off in Lvl 17 when I level grinded and now on Lvl 22. With one stroke, I did 7 Hp to a metal slime and killed it. Do you have the Power Belt equipped?? Can't explain why I killed them easily. Didn't even use the seeds.

I was taking out Red dragons in two hits at level 21.

Must be because I don't have the power belt. I was suspecting that my attack power needed to be over 128, which now it is even without it. I'll try again.

As suspected, once your attack is over 128, you can kill Metal Slimes in one hit.  Mine is currently 133 and I did 3 damage to the only one that didn't run the first round.  I assume by Power Belt you meant Warrior's Ring, which by the way, does not increase your attack power.
