Dragon Quest XI Progress

Phnom Nonh is a pretty aesthetically pleasing town (and more puff puff) and...

Man, was that dungeon great. Fun to be able to see the different levels sort of. Thanks for the Magic Key too ❤️

My 2 enjoy DQ. Last night was the first time my oldest wanted to play XI over Heroes. Good times!

I kind of dig the mobile version. I’m often switching through tabs on Safari anyhow. Especially now that I know how to run it properly haha.  Also, I’m running Hero, Erik, Jade, and Rab. They’ve

I just got my team back together in act 2, doing some side-questing now. I just got the metal slime recipes from that bard in Arboria so I'm working on making new weapons and armor.   As for my e

From launch day to today, I've put in about 6-7 hours, thanks to a lot of social events on my calendar intervening, plus a brief pause to try out Spider-Man ( which is good, BTW). 

*ahem *

"I've just reached Hotto Village,

Interesting theme we have here.

Everyone talks in haiku."

I see Veronica has joined the running with Maribel for "Most arrogant party member in a DQ game".  :P

I just beat Calasmos and watched the ending cut scene for the game. What does this mean? How is our hero related to Erdrick from Dragon quest 3? From my understanding, Erdrick isn't a person. I believe that Erdrick is a title. Anyone else have thoughts? 

 

Also for anyone looking for a good way to grind fast in the late game.

Use the pep power "haulelujah", you need Jade, Hero, and Erik to be pepped up. This sets a multiplier for gold, exp, and loot. I went to the Manglegrove whaleway where you can frequently find hardy hands which offer around 30k experience. 

After you use the first pep power, you need to get Jade and Hero pepped up again while also pepping up Sylvando. This will let you use Electric show which will turn the battle into 3 metal enemies. The monsters will scale with your level. But when I was around level 60 I was getting about 1 million experience per successful battle and jumping about 10 levels. It takes some luck and patience but when it's successful boy does it pay off. Calasmos was a breeze with a maxed out team.

I'm about 40-45 hours in and just got the silver orb from the mountain. But I was doing a full Draconian Quest and kept dying which is why the time is so damn high, now I dropped 2 restrictions and decided to keep the story flowing for my first playthrough.

I got a few more hours into the game last night. Finally crafted my Drusilian armor set after I hunted down some platinum ore.  I also

fought a demon Mural boss to finally get the magic key! Can't wait to go treasure hunting with that now!

Ok... so I'm a dumb dumb.  I totally forgot that bosses can be poisoned.  Every boss I have beaten is thanks to that sweet sweet chip damage. Erik and sylv are now my favorite characters.

I've made it to Gallopolis.

It's a very good game and the graphics are great.  But frankly, I think the 3DS version is better.   Both world maps (the 3D and the 2D) were more interesting than the PS4's zones, which feel like hallways instead of open environments most of the time.  Plus, so far the geography has been fairly flat which is more forgiveable in the 3DS version due to the style.

The difficulty seems better in the PS4 version though.  Especially since I'm using "Reduced XP from weaker monsters".

I finished Gallopolis a few days ago. I really liked this vignette and I liked the prince a lot. His voice actor really was fantastic, really sold the character. I spent a little bit of time doing the horse racing too. I should be off to the next town, but I'm gonna do some resource farming and level up a little bit.

Meh. It felt a lot like the Argonia story in VIII except the prince of Gallopolis is nicer, fitter, and learns a lesson in the end. But the general nugget of story was virtually the same.

Well, I liked it if not better than the DQ8 vignette.

I mean, I wouldn’t disagree, but I personally think VIII edges it out simply for being more plot-relevant and I liked Argonia more, though I understand liking the location more doesn’t make the side story any better, but it helps. I didn’t like the Orkutsk story from the same game in large part because I didn’t like the location.

I mean, I hate desert locations, but I liked Gallopolis as a city.

I’m not a fan of desert locations either, but I actually like what they did with the overworld. It wasn’t just large stretches of sand with patches of grass like I’ve come to expect.

Eh both felt like retreads of the Howcastle plot from VI.  It's basically a trope of the series at this point.  Like towns were everyone is frozen / stone.  or puff puffs.  Or Demon Kings.

People being turned to stone and bratty prince is more of a retread of old story ideas then expected staples in Dragon Quest the way puff-puffs and Demon Kings/Lords are.

I actually figured everyone would be way past me. It’s only about 6-7 hours in. I don’t stop at every NPC and I haven’t had to level grind yet, but I do stop to fight monsters on my way to places often and I do every quest available to me and dig around for junk before moving on.

Ive actually come across recipes from random NPCs that Ive spoken to. I think one of them in the first town with the casino gave me one. Definitely worthwhile to do so.

What!? Oh nice!

I thought the gold levels a bit low here for equipment as there was so much to upgrade for the characters at new towns, but the crafting has definitely helped with this allowing me to be constantly upgrading gear without grinding.

I’ve reached Heliodor. The town looks mighty impressive, with a different layout compared to the 3DS version I might add. I’m using a few of the Draconian Quest options, harder enemies and no running from battles.

So far I’m enjoying myself, and have spent a good deal of time just exploring what I can of the overworld. Since I’ll be fighting harder enemies, I figured it would help with levels too. Currently I’m at level 5.

I just finished the main story. 67 hours. I just posted the picture in the Quest section. 

The game was amazing through and through. I’ll be playing it again with more difficult settings after I platinum it. There is still plenty for me to do.
