I've been pausing to craft and grind a lot. 

You should just learn to let it go, let it go. Just be one with the wind and sky...

 

Spoiler

I don’t apologize for that awful joke.

I think the t-shirt for that saying needs to have Yangus-Humor in the center and then just a bunch of random #$*! around it with stuff I usually bring up as jokes/responses.

It will be glorious.

So I'm actually not that far in. I got to the Hawaii inspired town and I still need to upgrade my equipment there. I've had the game since launch and put in 80 hours so far. But the reason I'm going so slow is because I'm a madman and decided to play through the game in 3D and 2D at the same time, I have a file for each. So after I play through a big event in 3D, I switch over to 2D and do it again lol. Also Pokemon happened, which pulled me away from the game for a bit, but I'm determined to finish.

I second Aust's opinion: X 100% has the best casino. I just love Treasures 'N' Trapdoors. Especially the multiplayer variant. The only downside is that save-scumming is impossible so slots/roulette/slime slots (whatever they're called, those new slots that XI has are actually from X) are basically pointless.

The game gives you a metric F**KTON of bingo tickets for free on a regular basis so there's no reason to buy those. Basically free coins if you've got the time to sit at a bingo table for hours.

Once you get the VIP pass, coin grinding goes a lot faster.

I got my play stats from Nintendo for my Nintendo Switch gaming time, and surprise surprise, Dragon Quest XI S was in my top 5 most played games.

Of the top 5, it was #2. I’m not surprised it hasn’t beaten Smash Ultimate in playtime yet, but I still need to finish DQ11S and that could add a lot more playtime on.

It'll be between Battlechasers and DQ XI: S for my number one spot. 

 

But in the last two years, between PS4 and Switch, DQ XI holds the #1 time slot for sure.

I might need an intervention or something.

According to Nintendo I played for a total of 1038 hours this year. Oof.

According to them I played for 672 hours in the 6 months I’ve owned my Switch. It’s pretty much been the only console I’ve played on since I bought it, so I believe it.

I found a bug:

If you open the item menu during the scene where

Spoiler

Carnelian kills irwin/unleashes the Gloomnivore

The "Item Bag" option turns into

<LM_IfList(Item Bag,the item bag)>

I.E. It's either not parsing the script correctly, or there is an error in the English script file. I can't imagine they'd need a duplicate string just for this scene, but I also can't imagine that there's a separate parser just for this scene, so I don't know which it is.

How do I report this?

 

I'm in 2D mode. I don't know if this happens in 3D mode or on PC/PS4.

Do you completely turn off your console? Woodus had that glitch happen to him around the start of Act 2 and he found that by fully turning the console off and on that the menu fixed it. Pretty sure he said he usually left the console in sleep mode when not playing, which could be the cause of the glitch.

Not always but as of lately, often. The console has to be powered all the way off to switch between SysNAND (official firmware) and EmuNAND (custom firmware).

The bug was limited to that specific scene, though. The menu went back to normal after I left the flashback, without a software - let alone hardware - restart.

Just started my game of DQ11S last night.  REALLY late to the party, but I tend to buy a huge glut of games.  My backlog is embarassing.  I will devote as much of myself to this as I can for the next month or so. Wish me luck!  Also glad to be back!

That issue hung around for me for quite a while, the reboot did take care of it though (or fully shutting the game down).

Just got through the Manglegrove on my playthrough.  Christmas plans stood in my way for a while, but am now back on track.

On PS4 I left off at Gallopolis before getting sidetracked.  Will likely report more often when I get back there.

At midnight last night I reached the "final" dungeon and beat the first boss, saved at the gate. Can't wait to finish work and reach the post game tonight.

Hold up. 

 

So you're playing through on the Switch and the PS4 at the same time?

Pretty sure he’s saying that in the PS4 version he got to Gallopolis and stopped there. Now that he’s playing the Switch version he’s not going to post any progress updates until he reaches Gallopolis since that’s originally how far he got.
