Dragon Quest V progress

Recommended Posts

Ummm

 

I'm at Uptaten Towers. By the way, what kind of stupid pun is that? "Up to 10" meaning how tall they are? Or am I missing something more clever (I hope)? A pair of haunted towers, and that's the best name they could come up with? I mean, in DQ3, we got SKYREND Tower... how much cooler is that??

 

Yeah, I'm taking it slow. Don't want to run out of game before Dragon Quest VI comes along, and given how huge that game is, it could be awhile.

The Uptaten naming is purely to facilitate the further pun of the master of that place: Count Uptaten.  Yes.  Count up to ten. It's....bad.

Not sad at all.  Your immunity to that kind of thing is the envy of many a DQ fan.

Finally beat the game. Nimzo was far easier than I remembered, I killed him before he was even able to use meditate!

Don't forget to put in for Lightspeed, Bara.

 

And check KZ's Monster guide on Gamefaqs. It'll tell ya.

 

 

To be honest, I'm sticking, as monsters go, with Saber, a Slime Knight... and really, I never got more than those. I ended up using Hero, Bianca, Parry, and Madchen. :( No monstas.

matt,

 

This is the first time i ever played DQ5, so i am not used to having to grind so much.   Grinding for gold/levels is one thing but grinding for recruiting is just not used to having to put that much effort.

So.... I kinda screwed myself. I walk around everywhere with musk on, because I am a serial grinder. All well and good until my main party gets wiped out by a kamikaze rockbomb on the last floor of the volcano, no one left alive has evac. It's going to be a long walk home.

Went fairly well thankfully. The b team is pretty good. The flamethrowers were a bit rough, but everyone else made it back alive.

 

Current a team:

Me (l31, a170, d132)

Goodian, slime knight (l30, a140, d135)

Kim, chimaera (l17, a146, d129)

Adams, rotten apple (l20, a137, d151)

 

B team:

Sloth, powie yowie (l25, a124, d139)

Eyedlebye, cross eye (l16, a128, d128)

Newton, small fry (l21, a137, d110)

Bud, grudgerigar (l20, a111, d129)

 

Yes, I sent my sabrecat to the daycare center. He's a slacker.

Is it sad that i never spotted that pun.

Damn. Me neither. Ugh. And I've played it before and last night spent time thinking of it last night and still didn't get it.

 

I kept pronouncing it up-tate-en like tate that rhymes with great.

 

So, I'm stuck in town with me. Know there's a ghost around, can't find him or trigger it.

I didn't notice the pun at first until my mom pointed it out. I thought Uptaten was pronounced "Up-tay-tin" when it first came out.

I decided to put down the phone and do something else for a while as its getting a bit annoyed fighting king slimes, slimes, cureslimes and metal slimes while trying to recruit king and metal slimes.

The puns are really bad in V and VI, so much so, I find it takes away from the game.  Perhaps the worst one in my opinion, is the character named Mat, whose last name is Tress.  The poor kid was dealt a pretty crappy hand in life, he didn't need his name being a joke.  There's also a scene in V that puns just kill the seriousness of it.
