Dragon Quest V is a great game--my second favorite of this series, in fact. You'd probably have an easier time with the DS version. It's virtually the same as the mobile graphically and same translation.

In any case--My recommendations:

-I'd recommend getting a Slime Knight in your party as soon as you can (you'll know when you can do this, trust me). They are similar to clerics. I use one for the entire game myself.

-I'd personally suggest doing a bit of early grinding. It will pay off as there are several portions of this game where you wind up temporarily on your own.

-I'd suggest boomerangs for your hero..

-I'd rack up 99 Medical herbs as soon as you can. It's a little trick I do with most Dragon Quest games as a way of preserving MP. This way, you can heal up in between battles while conserving your Heal spells.

If you can, get one of those Apple guys early, they're awesome for a while.

Later on Golems & King Cureslimes rock!

Other than family, I find the humans to be lackluster.

Enjoy, it's an amazing game! The only DQ mainline one I've played through in Japanese because it was just too awesome not to.

This. Not only are Golems great, but they have a respectable recruitment rate!

-Golems are a must in part 3 of the game once you can visit the continent north of the castle of Gotha. They are easy to recruit.

-Likewise around Gotha Castle, there is an enemy called the Orc King. Get it. It gains a number of healing and support spells and can last a long time despite its low level cap. Having one as an emergency healer is an excellent idea.

-Recruit a Slime Knight as soon as you can. They can go a long way and can equip A TON of stuff. Their spell list leaves something to be desired, but they are still a worthwhile monster.

-A new casino item was added to the mobile version that helps you recruit monsters easier. It can be obtained in the casino on an island in the ocean once you obtain a boat. It may take a while to get due to the token cost, but it will help recruit monsters at a faster rate.

-Use Sancho once you get your hands on the Hela Hammer. He’s one of the few characters who can equip it and he becomes a very strong character with it. VIVA LA SANCHO!

strongly disagree, and the hero of Dragon Quest V would likely share my opinion considering he has children.

All these times replaying V and I did NOT know this. I may have to keep this in mind for my next inevitable DQV run.

I used him in my second playthrough where I married Nera. Sancho became a welcomed member to the team since I wasn’t using monsters, and unlike Tuppence who gains nothing, Sancho’s oddball list of spells and abilities can be quite helpful.

He’s like Torneko in a sense, you just don’t have to worry about Sancho ignoring orders. Also he can equip the Hela Hammer, which is welcome if you can’t recruit a Gigantes or if you didn’t marry Debora.

Actually the legendary hero of DQV doesn't even reach age 10 by the end of the game, he has no children. The inaccuracy of this statement has lessened the humorous impact.

Not LMAO. Not LOL. Not even haha.

SALTS (smiled a little, then stopped)

You mean Shin Megami Tensei V will. That’s why it’s taking so long for it to come out. Because it’s gonna be that good.

I’m hoping it becomes like Tokyo Mirage Sessions where we only got vague imagery for years and then all of a sudden it’s a bright and colorful RPG about the idol music industry.

No. They probably outright cancelled it on the down low and put the money towards another set of Persona 5 spin off games. That Persona kart racing game everyone jokes about may become a reality.

As long as we get that new Etrian game for the Switch within the next few years, Atlus can do whatever they and Sega want. I’m happy with just getting something Etrian related.

Now don’t go saying that. Talk like that is what gets you the monkey’s paw, and the next Etrian game will be a Pachinko machine.

This isn’t Konami though.

Besides, we all know Persona would get a Pachinko machine before Etrian would. Etrian is niche.
