Octogonia is giving me huge Dragon Ball vibes and I love it.

Octagonia is amazing. Both the aesthetics and the quests.

Got Rab and Jade in my party last night. Super hyped to continue where I left off before bed.

The boss at the end of the Octagonia scenario was nasty, though, and I'm not even using any draconian settings. Guessing I'm just underleveled since Rab and Jade joined 2 levels higher than the rest of my party.

I accidentally started that fight without healing my MP so the first half was me trying to recover. It was the closest to getting wiped by a boss yet personally. I also love Jade and Rab. 

Today will be a day I am unable to play much, but it’s still going to be a great day regardless.

So should I live in fear that I'm going to have to use leather armor or something (old equipment) for a forge recipe? Or do forge recopies just use things like ore and feathers and bat wings and sticks from the sparkle areas? I'd like to sell some of the things I've built but upgraded past. But... 

I've seen others ask this and I've looked at things online, but I never have seen a straight answer. Does it function like the alchemy pot for some recipes, using finished items as ingredients, or does it just use raw components?

Octagonia was great (he was on the juice!) and what came next was kind of heart breaking. They really did a nice job with that ruined country/castle tis of thee.

So far the only ingredients I’ve needed for forging have been raw components. I’ve personally not needed old equipment to do so yet and I’m a ways in.

Question for everyone since this wasn’t answered in another thread:

Can you change the dialogue boxes to the normal DQ black and white in the options, or are you stuck with the brown boxes?

I've wondered that too and just sold all my old equipment for cold gold since it seems like you don't need equipment to make new stuff.

I don't believe you can.

I’ve seen two recipes so far that require equipment, but they’re the upgraded Trodain bandana and coat, so I’m not sure if it’s an exception so you can keep using the Trodain stuff later on in the game or if other recipes will eventually need equipment as well.

I did the same and sold my old equipment. Might regret selling the Bandit Sabre/Blade or whatever it was called. Haven't seen it for sale yet and I found one many levels ago.

Anyone know where to get Sparkly Sap other than the starting area? Any campsite vendor along the game?

 

My item log has a list of locations that contain Sparkly Sap that I’ve traveled  through. 

Spoiler

The Emerald Coast, Dundrasil Region, The Costa Valor, Insula Algarum, The Champs Sauvage, and Sniflheim Region. It’s somehing I’ve only personally found by crashing into trees. I think one tree had two in the Sniflheim Region.

They joined my party with a 5 levels advantage over Hero and Erik.

...and I wanted to get myself a new weapon... jeez. How do I even talk to him?

I hear the rest of the game is downhill from there if you jump over him.

Haha, I guess so. I bet he sells Metal King Sword.

In all honesty you probably either need an outfit or he is cursed.

Just had my first wipe to Tentacular. Even with the cannon he's a huge pain in the butt. Beat him on the second try, but I feel like the only reason I won was because I got lucky with Sleep procs. His AoE damage output is way too much to deal with at this point in the game.

I was never particularly close to wiping out, don't think one of my party members died but yes, the damage output was significantly higher than the previous boss. Once you finish off the tentacles the first time, they come back with lower hp making it far easier to keep at least 1 tentacle down. I did it pretty quickly too, reducing armor with Rab and then spamming Hero's Falcon Slash and Hip Drop on Jade. They seem to do the most damage and finished off Tentacular pretty quickly. I dropped both Erik and Veronica, the latter having way too low hp pool. I kept Serena around for her healing but she is pretty decked out in equipment so she survives just fine. Serena focused on healing while Rab combines buffing/debuffing and some healing and on occasion a spell or two. I start with Right as Rain on Rab beforing moving on to defense reduction. Pretty solid party healing against AoE damage taken.

 

...but since you did it on your 2nd try, it's not much of an issue. :P

Well, I am 35 hours into the game now and I am completely hooked!  I just got the entire party now, and swapped out Erik for Jade, so my party is Hero, Jade, Veronica, and Serena. I thought about swapping out Serena for Rab, but for now her stats are a little bit better than his.

I have just finished the long Mermaid quest and ready to go under water! Man that quest was long and the boss fight was the toughest fight I have had yet!

Hmmm... maybe I should progress to get my whole party before I spend 5 hours on crazy slots and making new stuff and finishing quests.

Ok so I'm in draconian quest using the no fleeing, no exp from weaker enemies, and enemies are stronger.  I'm stuck at the tentacular.  Is there  a status ailments it's weak too? I've tried confusing it.  Can I get some tips for the fight? I'd Like to use rab, erik, hero, aND Serena (healing and kabuff plus the saint ability) so far I've only got one color change for health and that's because the pep ability. And as a back up healer I got sylv with hustle dance. Abilities really are of no consequence I can just head back to the church.

Check my post a little earlier on this page. That's what I did and it worked very smoothly. Not doing Draconian mode but same should apply.
