Dragon Quest Builders 2 Guides, Tips, Tricks, and other helpful things from the Web


Recommended Posts

Hey all, this is a fairly straight forward thread.  Here I provide you with any and all pre-made guides, helpful hints and wiki's being worked on outside of what will eventually be collected and housed on this site for Builders 2.  Have fun!

Google Doc:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1I7YipHxPNTNkqES5GctiWtZgavvM_RFadCo08rh01QM/edit#gid=856630209

Large Compendium Guides:

https://www.gamepur.com/guide/41738-dragon-quest-builders-2-room-recipes-all.html

Note that gamepur is up here because it's bloody strange, just pick any article, scroll down, and it connects first to all related articles, in this case anything labeled with the same game name.  Keep scrolling past and it goes to other games.  So there's no point in linking individual pages as it just continuously loads all of their pages in one stroke.  Since there are a range of articles it counts as a mini Compendium.

I HIGHLY recommend checking out BenXC's channel.  He's insanely knowledgeable about the Builders games, and quite masterful.  Some really useful tips, and he's more than willing to share bugs to take advantage of:

Gameskinny had a full list of mini medal rewards.  Added those.

I'm only a couple hours into the game otherwise I would start compiling this stuff for the Den. If I could only get an early copy of the games ;)

From what I understand, there's an application for review copies of games. With the longevity of your site, that might be an option. Might be interesting to look into that for DQXI S.

I doubt it, Nintendo wouldn't even give me Press site access for DQB2 and DQXIS

Tacked in a completed Google Doc's guide in the Large Compendium Guide section.

This was a pointless rant, because when frustrated, I act like a child at times.

Done...it's just one long list of youtube videos now.  I'm not sure if I managed to find everything again, but I think so...and a few others.  that's good enough for me.

@Woodus  I'm not really sure what to do here.  I can't remove individual videos and I can't force them to appear as purely text in the editing mode.  Is there anyway to do this?  I have two videos I accidentally linked to that are from Builders 1.

I'm not even able to highlight individual videos in editing...it's very frustrating.

You can try switching to Source mode to see the code, cut out all the videos and copy and paste without the ?feature=oembed part of the URL

Like so

No Source mode option is available.  I can bring up f12 or right-click and see the source, but I'm not allowed to directly interact with the code. 

Anyway, I just worked around it by deleting all the videos, and pasting from Gamefaqs

....ok, adhocked it a second time, pasted to notepad.  Then pasted again back here, and I can't get the links to display as videos now and auto-embed.  I'm at a total loss.

They start to show up as videos after I hit the finish edit button, but then appear as plain text after.  YOu know what, I'm done.

Thanks for all of this, Ignasia! That google doc alone will be tons and tons of help!

Shoot!  You know, the google doc link isn't in this one, it's on GameFAQs, lol.  I'll add it here pronto.  Thanks for the reminder.

Ok, so I finally conquered DQ1 (all trophies).  I'll end up doing something with Terra Incognita.  Though for now I'm just content I have all the TI seeds (only 105 HP...and that seems to be from people tearing up the island, kind of odd they'd have less than the story general 125).

Builders 2 is completed (awhile back).  Full post-game unlocked (so 3 buildertopia's).

I'm really surprised at how few in my friends list have played either game, or really completed either.  They're easily my favourite spinoff games.  I can't wait for Builders 3 :)

So my eventual plans for Builders and Builders 2 I'll just jot down here at some later point:

Builders 2 Furrofield Plans:

Builders 2 Moonbrook Plans:

The other day, after a brief conversation with @Xiggy i made a quick twitter thread on how to upgrade basic square houses into more beautiful building. To go from this:

to this:

On another note, Ben XC posted a 35 tips video recently. I personally do not recommend the block removal one, but otherwise very solid tricks and tips.

This one is in Japanese, but you might learn some advanced plant-based building techniques with this video. This person shows very clearly how they do everything in the video, it's amazing.

I considered posting this in the Build-sharing topic because it looks very neat, but in the end it's a tutorial so it goes here, haha.

Takechiyo, the Japanese youtuber I talked about just above released another tutorial video showcasing various ways of building bridges. There are many more ways of building bridges, these are just some ideas! Much like in the previous video I linked to in the previous post, it's easy to follow even if you don't know Japanese (I don't!) because Takechiyo shows how to build each of these step by step. She even shows how some hidden (or not properly explained by the game) mechanics work.
