If anyone still reads this, you might be interested in reading my early thoughts on Dragon Quest VI. Since I wrote the entry, I defeated Murdaw in the real world, changed my vocations at Alltrades Abbey, and fought Amos' monster form.

I usually equip all 4 party members(regardless of vocation)with holy talismans even though it doesn't always prevent against Wight Emperors.I know an elfin charm does more,but is it at least as effective as a holy talisman?

Now that I've retrieved the PS2 from the garage,I've had the urge to try to get restarted in DQVIII(which I barely started in the first place)now that I've obtained a used copy of the strategy guide.The problem is that the bestiary doesn't tell you the possible spells or skills that they can use.Is there anywhere that tells you what specific actions an enemy can take during battle?I've read too many horror stories(mostly in V and VIII)on other DQ boards about instant death wipes(caused exclusively by an enemy using Thwack,Kathwack,or Death Dance and it hits all party members at once),and I'm just too scared to let even a 'first time' happen to me(unless I count those Gold Batboons and their Suck-rifice spells in the original NES version of DQII)...

If DQ9 had a flaw,it would be the introduction of the concept of 'haywire' spellcraft,especially since enemies(Alphyn often gets worse than Fouleye Fowleye)do it a lot more than playable characters.All of my characters have had mage experience and have repeated that vocation at least once,but what attribute increases a party member's chance of doing that?

I have a bit to say about the manga series (or at least its first eighteen volumes, since I haven't been able to find the rest translated into English) at my WordPress blog.

The title says it all once again.
Some of the images came from: http://rpg-home.lunar-net.com/dq-web/index.html


My icon/graphic policy is generally:

1. Credit nice, but not necessary.
2. Avoid hotlinking.
3. If you want to take an icon, let me know because I'm curious like that.
4. Enjoy!
5. All I ask is that you don't take credit for my icons/graphics/stuff(course that kind of goes without saying).

1. 2. 3.

The title says it all once again. Two of them may be a bit on the mature side, so read with care(It's a Mel Gibson quote and it's a bit PG13 rated. The rest of them are of Marcello in all his glory! Enjoy!
