Dragon Quest VIII Progress

Maribel.

Triggered.
Metal Slimes, Casino prize, use Kazing whenever she dies, she's a killer queen, frizzle, boom, and sizzle too, walk with her you walk with doom.

There is a woman in a house in Pickham that looks exactly like Maribel, but in her 20s or so. She's too submissive in her conversational text, but it looks exactly like her.

That same NPC also appears at the Port Prospect dock selling Herbs for 10 gold. Ever since I played VII I can't help but think that model resembles Maribel, but a much friendlier one.

Sorry for reviving a dead post but I recently started playing the 3DS version of 8.  I'm just after the part where you help the mourning king. Found that amazing area that spawns Metal slimes and

Look at Mr. "I employ a proper strategy" over here. Thinking ahead and being prepared.

Blade Cascade is a wonderful attack skill. It's very much worth the investment in knives. Combine it with a Liquid Metal Sword and she's a metal killing machine.

Well I just defeated Captain Crow and recruited Red! I'm looking forward to seeing what she can do in battle. With that, the whole crew is here, so it's time to head to Baccarat and see if we can't get the casino going again.

 

Morrie was a big help in the Crow fight. Yangus was my main damage dealer, and thanks to Morrie Yangis was able to reach 50 tension quickly every time. Angelo kept using Sarcastic Snigger and Multihealed when necessary. The hero has the same role as Yangus, tension to 20, use Multithrusts, then heal when needed. It was an easy fight.

You'll like her a lot, her final dagger ability mixed with Morrie's tension building and oomph makes for some of the quickest and highest damage available in the game.

Steropes came through my second round with Morrie, and not a moment too soon, because Curer was near dead and out of MP, and Morrie's Hell Gladiator was not a kind one. Thankfully, he didn't put anyone to sleep, though mine put the enemy Cureslime to sleep, making it an easy target. Thanks to another lucky crit, we won.

 

Now, to celebrate my new member by having him carve up some monsters.

Had way too close a call with a bunch of Dead Ringers. Ran into them by accident while moving on a sabrecat, and it reinforced why I hate fighting the bastards. Aside from cheating, as ones called get to move in the same $#!&ing turn, they quickly assembled and used their Melody of Death to kill Morrie.

 

Okay, not too big an issue, but then they did it again before any of my team could move, killing the Hero and giving me a heart attack! Thank God Angelo has Shining Shot, which rips them a new one.

Managed to collect every mini medal after probably 3 hours of backtracking looking for the last 2 I needed, the last reward is a new costume for Red that really helps with her crappy health situation.

 

Now I'm just a couple of bosses away from finishing the postgame Memories Lane dungeon and I think that's this game pretty much wrapped up.

Stomping through Pirate's Cove.

I did that for 2 years. Fun place to work.

 

Not a bad job, but the health insurance is terrible. Those wooden legs cost a fortune.

 

I kept hocking them for booze money.

You guys joke but there is an actual ice cream place five minutes from my home called Pirate's Cove.

There's a chain of miniature golf places all up the East Coast with that name. I worked at one in high school.

You know, I think I saw a miniature golf place called Pirate's Grove when I was visiting relatives in Florida some years ago. I don't recall if it was near Winter Haven or if I saw it while we were driving to the beach on one of the days we were there, but the name does sound familiar.

I made it to the end of the new postgame dungeon to one hell of a super boss. The reward is a bracer that gives permanent Oomph status, which is cool if not useless at this point.

Ha! I just discovered a funny glitch in Baccarat! I went to Golding's Mansion to begin the Casino side quest, and I was walking around the room to look for collectables I saw a speech bubble pop up when next to the big red curtains in the room Cash and Carrie are in. I had to see what would happen, and it turns out I was speaking with the guard sitting on the sofa on the other side of the wall!

 

I guess these bubbles have some benefits for some funny moments. I knew that even walls have ears, but I didn't know they had mouths! XD

 

 

And things just got even better. Turns out if you stand next to this wall after speaking with him (or stay in place and turn the camera) you can rotate the camera outside of the room you're standing in! I just tried moving a few steps and rotating the camera, but this time it stayed in the room. Guess if you guys wants to have some fun and mess around, give these two little tricks a go.

You know, I'm thankful for the blue chests they added to this version. Thanks to one of those bad boys I got a Gold Nugget, and was able to combine it the Orchalcium piece you get from Princess Minnie and a Yggdrasil Dew to get an early Sage's Stone! Definitely giving this to Red Morrie for group healing!

 

I also discovered a Fan recipe for Red. Use her Iron Fan and combine it with a Hermes Hat and you'll get a Peacock Fan. Not as exciting as the Sage's Stone, but still it was nice to discover.

I posted several Fan and Claw recipes in the alchemy topic. Go give it a look, Yangus. Might figure out something you can make now.

I completed the casino side quest last night, staying up later than I meant to just to finish it. Reason being was I got half way through the Dragon Graveyard and my thumb slipped and next thing I knew my progress was lost. D'oh!

 

So on round 2 through the Graveyard, I opted to kill some extra Metal Kings to not only make up for the two I had killed on round 1 against the very first two I had found but because I was pissed I had lost all my progress. Thank the Almighty I had saved prior to starting the Graveyard so I didn't lose my Sage's Stone.

 

Now I'm going to do some gambling at the casino and make it rich off the Roulette table. I wish more Dragon Quest casinos had roulette tables.

I've played a couple of those in Florida, I love mini-golf too bad there wasn't a DQ themed one somewhere :)

I still have a bag somewhere in my boys' rooms with about 100 metal coins they printed worth free rounds of golf. I used to collect them from people that brought them from other locations to the one I worked at it Madeira Beach (which has since been torn down for million-dollar condos).

Wow, I did pretty well at the roulette table. After all my wins, I purchased Liquid Metal Armour for everyone (except Morrie who is wearing the Dragon Robe), a Ghringham Whip for Red, a few Saint's Ashes, and the Gothic hat for BlindJim. I bought a few other odds and ends for alchemy too.

 

Next up, the southern island! Good thing I have the weekend free, so here's hoping I'll be able to finish the main game soon!

I just got the ship and have visited Neos - not quite sure where to go next ...

 

Question for those that have gotten this far: did the difficulty level crank itself up after getting the ship? In Trodain and the area surrounding the ship I had no problems with easily handling the wandering encounters there... Hero 25 - Boomerang, Jess 22 - Whips, Yangus 24-  Axe, Angelo 22 - Multi Shot - but once I hit Neos all of a sudden everything got to the point that I seem to lose someone every encounter of more than 2-3 mobs - golems hit for 50+ so Jess is dead in two attacks (I have her at the back of the party)... I have bought newer weapons and some armour but I am surprised by how often I have characters dying - not sure if it's the game or something I am doing wrong...
