Dragon Quest VIII Progress

Recommended Posts

 

Yeah, that's what I meant! If you already know that one, then I guess Memories Lane is all that's left. ;)

 

I wish you luck in conquering Memories Lane. You'll need all of that luck,

 

 

Thanks. I was doing pretty well for a bit and having lots of fun, but I'm currently trying to think of a strategy for Sir Leopold. He just crits way too much.

Have you tried to have Jessica (or Red or both) use Accelerate on everyone?

Yeah, I usually do, but that wouldn't make him crit less would it? He attacks twice and almost always crits meaning most of the time I'm going to have two people getting killed and two people reviving, leaving no room for attacks.

Ahem:

 

Sir Leopold in Memories Lane is just a jerk. For anyone planning to tackle this dungeon, here's some friendly advice: invest in Knives for Red or Jessica so she learns Toxic Sword, and try to Envenomate Sir Leopold. He'll take 999 damage each turn. If the hero is alive, summon both monster teams with the highest HP monsters you can get. Go get Pa Troll, Steropes, Skeledoid, any and all monsters who have very high HP (over 800 works best) and just let them fight it out. They will likely all die, but it means your characters won't thanks to Leopold's 650+ critical hits.

Ah, I always forget that you can poison some bosses. Does defending champion work against crits?

I have yet to open it from its plastic wrapper. I'm waiting until I beat VII first.

I hit a wall at the Silver Dragon. Lost the motivation to continue. Beat Rhapthorne again, watched the "true" ending, decided to take a break and reevaluate my life choices.

Angelo just joined my party. Still unsure if I should go swords or bow with him.

 

Forgot how the voice-acting was great in this game.

 

I really wish I could play my 3DS on the bus so I wouldn't have to wait so much between my game sessions.

It's been awhile since I last posted on this thread.

 

Got the ship, did some more bingo in Pickham's Casino for alchemy, finished more codex pics(including the Golden Grimalkin, had to beat 30 Terror Tabbies first) and talked to Morrie, let him name the team this time(I usually do name my own, but I figured let him do it this time for the heck of it). Now I'm working on getting a good early team together, starting with Axoraptor. I'm not completely decided on the rest though, I usually add the Cannibox and Jargon infamous monsters for the early rounds since they do a pretty good job. But I would like to get something else for a change of pace in the early rounds. I'll look into some options.

 

Speaking of the Monster Arena, I need to take of a picture of it really quick.

Played a lot during the last couple of days (gotta thank the holidays for this).

 

Just arrived at Argonia. I have my party at level 25 and have been doing all the Codex Photo Challenges until now. I have a total of 95 as I'm writing this. Also played a couple of rounds in Monster Arena until I reach Rank D. I'm using an Axoraptor, Skeleton Soldier and a Fowlfighter. Found 48 minimedals.

 

I reckon that altough the maps are vast they are pretty much empty and the geography is boring. You pretty much roams around trying to find the chests (which are always in a corner) while avoiding some pesky enemy battles. Great game but I wish the maps were more populated or smaller.

I've owned this game since release. I've just now gotten to the Argonian Hunting Grounds.

 

I'm going for the opposite of Lightspeed Champion.

Sublight. Like me. I did the dark world and paused...

Dark Pikachu must have done a number on you.

I got to the end game then decided to catch up on those pictures.

 

Then I didn't.

I'm basically playing the game of 'do all the pictures asap.'  I do the story when I can no longer do more pictures.

Oh I need to do those as well. I meant the quest we have here of photologging all the monsters in the game for archival sake.

Oh. I figured that was all done. :X

I think I'll leave it open until it is. In the mean time, someone needs one hell of a badge for that!

I didn't plan on starting this game before beating Kingdom Hearts...

 

...but then I had a plane ride and nothing better to do, so I guess I'm playing two games now.

 

I'm goofing around in the beginning of the game at this point. I've already beaten this game a couple times on PS2, so I'm gonna take this play-through slow, have fun with it, and try not to miss anything.

Well I am gonna be resuming my playthrough after a quite extensive break in order to play Breath of the Wild.So when I do resume I have to recharge the Magic Mirror and grind a little bit and upgrade my equipment via alchemy before heading to the Dark Ruins.

In a month or two, I hope to do the same thing after my Persona 4G and DQH2TOWTLS break.

So before tackling the dark ruins and since I know have access to the bazaar,I think its time to upgrade some equipment.What do you suggest I make or buy?

My party is set up this way

 

Hero:Swords

Yangus:Axes

Jessica:Whips

Angelo:Bows

 

In case I have to where is a good place to grind for gold at this part of the game.
