Dragon Quest XI S Progress

Also, someone PLEASE tell me you can permanently get the Jester outfits for either Rab or Hendrik. PLEASE TELL ME YOU CAN. I will so keep Hendrik in that damn outfit for the entire game just because it’s so funny.

Unfortunately you can't. However, in Act 3, you are able to access the parade again and then Hendrik and Rab will appear in those outfits.

They're saving that for DQXI:EoaEASS-DE(DX)(LDPOE) (DRAGON QUEST XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age SS - Definitive Edition (Deluxe Edition) (Luminary Deluxe Pre-Order Edition)) in 10 years when they do an actual remake. The game will include all of DQXIS' content, plus anything leftover in the 3DS version that's missing in S, like the classic scale 3D mode. All modes will include extended support character solo chapters, an extra bonus dungeon, and the ability to switch between all 3 modes at any point as well as return to past chapters. You'll be able to wear any costume - including those - at any point once you've obtained it, or you can display the default, or you can show whatever you have equipped, like DQ9 and DQ10. You can enchant your equipment to look like other equipment if you cough up some gold. For both 3D modes, it will output at least 8K on all supported devices. VR-Capable devices will have a first person VR mode. The game will release on every device on the planet except XBox. That pre-order bundle will include a 12" Luminary statue, a dual sided poster (with the game's box art on one side, and a painting of the cast at the base of Yggdrasil on the other), and a 3" Sword of Light pendant, and costs something like $300, so I'll never get to have it.

Last night I finished a little Tickington dungeon (FUN) and finished making the sword of light. Looks like it's probably time to start pushing through to get those credits to roll so I can experience the Post-Game that I skipped over on the PS4 version.

I'm confused. What is all that?

Oh wait, I get it!

And I approve! Forever shall I carry the disappointment of no other DQHTWTWATBB moment since the first.

Welp, 300 hours in and I’ve hit a wall finishing the accolades. I’m 4 short of having it all. 😭 2 casino accolades and 2 horse racing accolades. At least I can practice the horse racing and get better.

After farming for seeds of strength, I've managed to get my main character's strength a little over 400, I believe? In the process all of my characters are above level 40 if not at it, so I'm going to assume I'm overleveled at this point in the game. I just got around to heading to Arboria, and I'm probably going to upgrade everyone's equipment before heading forwards (currently I have everyone's equipment at +3 except for Veronica's, which I plan on getting around to at some point...hopefully)

I finished the game, fought the True Final Boss.

I can say with some confidence, despite having much more nostalgia for them, I like this game a lot more than DQVIII-IX. I am biased for DQVI so will exclude it, but this might be my favorite game since DQV.

I have Sylvando back with the party in Act 2 and am now heading to Gallopolis. I thought that instead of heading to Zwaardrust like the game suggests I’d try going elsewhere first for something different.

The Luminary has gotten his groove back. Now he can Z stuff with lighting to make them go Poof once again.

All done. 

 

Beat the True Final Boss, the credits rolled again, and this is the bittersweet end to DQ XI for now. Between PS4 and Switch, I logged about 200 hours into this game. I'm sure this will not be the end of my time with DQ XI. But it will certainly be a while before it comes back into rotation.

 

What an absolute blast of a game, and it ended brilliantly.

I haven't played XI since Fredrick hit 99, but in the meantime I've finally bested Baramos and made my way to the realm of darkness in III (Switch). I've already explored all of Alefgard except for Castle Charlock and the island on which it is found. Only waiting for my party to all hit 50 before moving onward to slay Zoma.

 

Once Erdrala finishes her quest to save Gaia, Fredrick will continue his quest to save Erdrea.

Still at 25 hours. Which is approximately a 60:1 ratio with the friend I left my game to in November. He told me this weekend he's not yet 30 minutes into it... 100 days later.

So, you don't have the game and he has it but is not playing it. 

 

Hmmmmm.....

I tried to buy the game for a friend but he rejected it. It made me a little sad to be honest.

I made some progress with DQ11 S...by making Miis of the playable cast this evening.

(Also, you can’t see it in the front shot of Jade, but she does have a hair style with a ponytail.)

Finally got around to finishing the rest of the quests in the game.

 

Spoiler

Did the first of four post-Calasmos Tickington quests, got a really neat accessory that gives you a chance to cast spells or abilities for free! can't wait to see if it works with Magic Burst.

 

Edit: doesn't seem to work with magic burst, but is still insane.

Is he just not into the genre or what?

To be fair I got him to play DQV and DQ8 both on PS2 a few years ago, and he played through those and while he didn't seem to particularly dislike either one, he seemed pretty indifferent.
