Fuck this shit. I'm dropping super strong monsters. The goddamn Elysium bird keeps 1 shorting my whole fucking party before I can even do anything. Fuck. I don't care if the game is baby mode now I'm fed up with not even getting a turn before I'm dead.

place the PS4 on your chair and then sit on top of it while you game on a real gaming machine.

I'm going to buy it after I play through all the other DQ games (except 10) that I downloaded illegally. Hopefully this will take me long enough that the price will have dropped, because I don't like spending 60 dollars on a video game.

I just started today, about twelve hours in.
I like the game but the combat is rather mediocre at teh moment. I miss the Tension system from older games. This new system is similar to the bad FFIX system where you don't have any control on your character's super attacks and they activate at the worst moments.

I can't stand the music in this game. I know it's supposed to be reminiscent of classic DQ music but holy fuck it's just poorly composed.
>>
>>431490224
I've played 6 hours of it. Having fun. I think I would rather have random encounters though. Right now whenever I go to a new area I feel like I have to stand around and kill stuff for a bit so I will stay "on pace" with levels. With random encounters that's just baked into the game.

>>431498165
Yeah that sort of gets fixed as you get more characters and increased pepe mode chance but it remains a blight on the combat. "Old school" also means "percentage chances out the ass" which might be the last bastion of modernisation for JRPGs. I also wish for an FFX style display of whose turn is coming up, it would allow for more risk taking than the yellow/orange HP bars which do an okay job of signalling the flow of combat.

All of which is moot, because it is a f u n game.

Those are not random, and making enemies visible completely removed the difficulty and resource management of the original

List of things to do if you're new to the game:
>greatswords are better on the main character until you have skill points for dual wield and gigaslash, shields are a meme until you get Party Member 8 even on hard mode
>erik's poison is better than his sleep
>use spears on serena for early-mid game
>use spears on Jade for multithrust until late game when you unlock multikick, when you switch to claws
>Rab is an entirely better healer than Serena as soon as you get him and for most of the mid-game
>Rush Hustle dance and that's amore on sylvando
>Party member 8's build path is up to preference though axes have the most DPS, but he is tank oriented and when you get him shields will no longer be a meme on him
>don't you DARE fucking lie to the mermaid
complete as many sidequests as possible before going to yggdrasil
>pep power side quest you can save for later
>don't worry about the casino until later in the game
>crafting and reworking > buying gear
>you can buy perfectionist pearls fairly early in the game for a rate of 100 gold per pearl
>fairly early in the game you can reallocate your skill points at 20 gold per skill point
>the "post-game" is not post-game, it's the game's third act

I don't know man, I'm at the same point and I think he's pulling his weight with daggers.

Sleeper hit works pretty often and leads to a free ~200 damage persecutter. That shit has saved me multiple times.

Alright, give me the down-low. I just got to Puerto Valor for the first time, and I got my eyes on those platinum weapons.

Would they be considered OP at this point in the game? I'm typically the kind of autist to grind ages to get something cool, but I don't want to take the challenge out of the game. Already playing on hard monsters and probably a bit overleveled.

Just got to Costa Valor and honestly I'm enjoying it thoroughly, the plot has some neat twists that are predictable admittedly but it doesn't dwell on them so it stays fresh.

The characters themselves are actually refreshing in and of themselves because none of them pander too hard onto the stereotype that they're playing off of.
Serena isn't some dunce blonde head with a cheerful personality. She has actual brains and intelligence.
Veronica isn't completely tsundere, she's just prone to anger and she actually acts like an adult rather than the age she appears which for once actually supports the whole "loli but not actually a loli" trope by emotionally subverting it.
I like how Sylva isn't just this flamboyant show person with no depth, he seems to actually have a decent side story building up.
Idk too much about Rab to determine his trope yet but I already love Jade's character development so far.

I honestly didn't even know this game was a whole year old.
>>
>>431491086
The normal difficulty is actually balanced perfectly if you don't do any unnecessary grinding.

Also Turn-Based RPGs aren't supposed to be hard because their skill ceiling is non-existent. That's why they have to put more effort into other things like presentation and story.

The enemies being so passive and blind on the field map is a huge problem.
They should have had random encounters or made the enemies super aggressive and have way bigger fields of vision.
Old DQ games made you prepare for the journey because you couldn't avoid battles entirely and it was expertly balance. XI is just casual strolling through linear maps and maybe fight some enemies if I feel like it. I'm fucking 71 hours in and I haven't bought a single consumable item after I beat the infamous sandy claws at the beginning of the game.

>Decide to do draconian because I heard normal was too hard
>enjoy it at first/on normal mobs but bosses are a chore
>Find most boss encounters are just grinding for appropriate skills/lvl, and pure luck

Draconian hard bosses suck ass. I nearly beat Tentacular once at lv23- but my power went out with fully alive party + in orange. EVERY fight after has been RNG and snooze/debuffs just missing. Every person I see fight him is level 25+ which makes me feel underleveled.

I'm not sure I can call draconian "difficult"? It's just grind so you get the right spells for the right moment, and I hate grinding. Should I just turn it off? Is it even worth going forward in Draconian, is there any pot of gold at the end of the this rainbow or is it purely to inflate my e-cock? At this point it's just making me dislike my experience of playing DQXI because I just dread having to approach the next boss, but if it's worth it because it makes the endgame interesting working around all your abilities I don't know. Someone save me.

I'd wait until the boss of Phnom Nonh, you have the choice to go either there or the Mini Medal academy first. If you really hate Draconian mode that boss will be the final nail in the coffin, but if you can get past it you'll be fine. It's the hardest boss you'll fight for a while.

I think no random encounters is a huge problem in this particular game. The encounter rate should be set by the developer to ensure steady level progression, but since you can easily bypass all enemies in the game, it's up to the player to guess and choose how much exp they think they should be receiving in each area. If the player guesses wrong, they're fucked.

At what level does MC have enough skill points to get dual wielding?
>>
>>431501683
Nah Elysium Bird is the next boss after Tentacular, then the boss of Phnom Nonh is next.
>>
>>431516432

I don't think I'm going in the wrong direction with any of them. Sylv has the healing dance, MC does 200 or so with the overhead slash thing, multithrust on jade, etc. The only thing I feel I would be missing that would make the fight easier is the platinum weapon for Jade but that kinda falls in the category of grinding (minigames, worst of all), and I just can't stomach doing that for another weapon.

My biggest issue is I feel severely underleveled. If the boss actually runs out of deceleratle/rate debuff then he's taken up to 5+ turns before a party member even gets a chance. Certain party members too like Erik feel useless, and dual wield just seems like a waste if it's not for Metal hunting. Overall It's just killing my experience with the game.

>>431516813

How far is that after Tentacular?

>>431516904

Guess that could be the case. Maybe I do need to be around 25 or so to actually beat him. I imagine you probably get kabuff around there aswell so it atleast lets you mitigate more damage.

>>431516993

If he's playing on draconian that can genuinely happen.
>>
>>431516904
The game is very forgiving in that regard, since you are rarely locked into a situation where you can't leave and go grind unless you're playing on low/no xp. Every situation I've been in in which you are locked in, the boss is usually very easy
>>
>>431516813
Not far at all, after tentacular you take your boat through one of the sea portals to an area called Champs Sauvage, from there you can either go to the Eerie Eyrie and fight Elysium Bird or go to Phnom Nonh and fight the boss I was talking about.

So is it possible to get dual wielding on the hero? I've been putting my points into Swords and have a couple in Luminary. I always over analyze skills and shit in RPGs and I'm worried that I could be doing a better build for him.
>>
>>431518303
Yeah it's a hidden space in the swords tree. FYI you can check all of the possible skills a character has (including the hidden skill panels) in the attributes section.
>>
>>431518530
I actually didn't know it showed the hidden panels, that's very cool. Thank you! I wasn't too sure if it was the hidden panel between swords and greatswords. At what level should I be able to unlock it do you think? I think I might have to reallocate my points so I can get it unlocked. Annoying you have to go up through greatsword as well but it makes sense.
>>
>>431518703
You don't have to go through greatswords for dual wielding.
>>
>>431518703
Oh no you don't need to go through greatswords, Dual-Wielding is the hidden panel in the sword tree directly above "Attack power when wielding +3". I just respecced MC to check, and you need at least 55 skill points to unlock Dual-Wielding, if you went Flame Slash -> Attack Power when Wielding + 3 -> Dragon Slash -> Attack power when Wielding + 6 -> Falcon Slash -> Dual Wielding.

You could but I wouldn't split up weapon talents until around Lv 35+ when you start getting 5+ points per Lv. I suggest you pick a weapon and put points in it and the character's signature

Man this game mechanically has some really big problems. The skill grid system is inherently flawed because they give you so many skill points near the level cap for absolutely no reason. The end result is that you likely won't unlock a lot of the pep abilities and other novelties unless you grind during the postgame. I especially don't get what they were thinking with Hendrick and Sylvando. You don't get their final skill trees until post game, which means you can't play Hendrick as his obviously intended role (tank) until it no longer matters.

Scaling is horrible too. At level 99 your characters will still need hundreds of seeds to actually reach meaningful caps. I barely feel stronger than when I was in my seventies or even fifties. The only way the game could add challenge was via health sponges and time constants. A great example is the horrendous trial system, which is just a matter of spamming AOEs with high enough stats to clear it quickly enough. Boss battles have zero challenge so the devs had to have them start removing all buffs and debuffs during the end game.

I really didn't like that part. I think the game was great, but that was the biggest misstep. It erases Senya's character development, it feels like it takes away from Veronica's sacrifice, and overall just cheapens the whole dark age arc. What the fuck were they thinking? They did it just so Veronica wouldn't have to stay dead, didn't they?
>>
>>431524087
It's an incredibly shitty plot twist that gets even worse in part three. I think the thing that makes it so bad is that it isn't an alternate ending like how it is first proposed to you.

Jade is kinda my worst character right now.

I went spears but so far all her moves are really either situational or have a high degree of failure (puff-puff, thunder thrust) I just got her multi-thrust though so she's back into my rotation when I need single target damage but she's no post-divide Erik.
>>
>>
>>431525721
The trick to Jade was to immediately go all in on her Spear tree. She is by far the best physical attacker for most of the game. The other characters catch up to her as far as single hit damage, but thanks to crit chances and her overall self sufficiency she's still the best when you take buffs and debuffs into account. Most of her exclusive gear and accessories are all really good too. Fairly early on you can get an accessory for her that regenerates three MP every turn, and this lets her spam her inexpensive spear moves really reliably.

Buff her, sap boss, and let her spam her multi hit moves. It is more efficient than other setups and she can basically go the entire boss fight just spamming Multithrust.
>>
Just a question: what the fuck is Jade wearing?
>>
>>431525945
That's exactly what I did with her, but she just ended up as a worse erik that had almost no utility, now she has mulitithrust but erik's got divide and that far stronger so she's still kinda worthless.

Pretty standard JRPG fare, turned based combat where whoever goes first is decided by an initiative role factoring agility into account. There are buffs, debuffs, multiple status ailments, critical hits and the like. Every character has a skill tree where you can either put points into their equippable weapons or a unique branch individual to that character i.e. the white mage has a branch that increases healting potency and lets her get elemental wards.

>>431527583
When one of the required characters gets pep, bench them. Unless you have insane luck, it's a pain in ass to do when you just have four members in your party.
Play a bit further along, you can also come back to this later.

>>431526859
I thought his storyline was kinda silly, especially for a monarch to be. Being good at picking the right people for a job is exactly what a good ruler does, they don't micromanage every detail of governance personally, no one possibly could, what they do is delegate that to the best people and facilitate them doing it for them. Sure he takes credit when things go right but you also have to take the blame when they don't, but if it's been this fucking long he's been perpetuating this facade of superhuman capability that's exactly the qualities of someone who gets "the Great" appended to their name.
>>
>>431527836
>>431527583
If you don't have 5 party members yet and can't bench the only other way is to do like me and burn MC and Erik's pep strategically.

I did it with the four man party, you don't have to wait until you have 5.

Just find a weak enemy and defend until they're all sync'd up then go fight the spitzfire.

I feel like Jade is the best DPS unit endgame too just because of Sylvando's Ladies First. Even if she falls behind compared to Erik, nothing he does will make up for Jade effectively getting to act twice more than anyone else.

You get the fifth party member literally after defeating the next boss. No reason to waste time defending against shitmobs.

42 is nowhere near enough to finish the main story unless you are playing on baby mode, so not actually having to prepare for any fights and being able to just kinda do whatever is a big reason you are so fast.
You are also most likely just skipping most NPCs and don't go out of your way to explore and do all the side shit, just picking up whatever you find in the area you are currently at.

Well she didn't have any kind of glaring weaknesses or hidden agenda so she never had an opportunity to expand on her backstory. The issue was that there was never any meaningful scenes with her part two onward.

I'm not even sure if some of the main story battles would be possible if you had the combination of Strong Monsters, No overleveling, No armor/accessories and Shypox on. Theres several fights in the game where you wouldn't be able to sustain yourself let alone attack the boss.

Wouldn't it turn into literally redoing the same battle infinitely until you got lucky enough to somehow avoid every attack or something or if seeds have no cap in this one literally farming seeds early on for insane numbers of hours until you win through sheer stats

>>431535258
It's either just straight up an oversight or you can take it as proof that not all timelines play out the same way and the Hero of the postgame timeline simply decided to lie to her. It's the exact same in the JP version, she lives regardless of your choice.

Did you not pay attention to the story? You went back in time before the big event. The game took it very literally. I saw my mess of character builds and cringed, but you party members get there stuff back a little further in the story, though Serana never becomes as op again.

Disregard idiots blaming the composer. The decision was almost certainly strictly financial and/or lack of time to complete on time. Seems like a real shame too... DQ8 had a similarly canned soundtrack in Japan but it was the overseas releases that came later that gave it its amazing orchestrated soundtrack. 9 was a DS game, 10 we never got... but basically 11 is just returning to what the series always did. 8 is an exception.

If it looks boring to you, then it for sure will be. It is very slow and simple.

i havent spent any gold since starting the game do i need it for anything good coming up?

If a JRPG is too slow just hook cheat engine and enable 1.5x or 2x speed hack.

Is there at least a class system and a bunch of skills?

Drasilian armor looks so shitty though.

The graphics and scale of things are so fucking good but the story and music put me to sleep, and not in a good way. It just feels wrong to have a world this big and so pretty with everything else being so vanilla.

He seriously sucks. I just took him out of the party entirely in Part 2.

he is shit, but i have to keep him in my party due to muh plot autism

>>431545537
I love that he doesn't have to actually be used. You can just bench him in the backlines for most of the game.

Wish I hadn't gone with boomerangs for Erik, and I'm too stubborn to change his skills this far into the game.

I had to for that stupid fucking sidequest.

Dude, it takes like five seconds to reset your skills and another 30 to reapply them as desired.

>>431546209
Just do it, man. It's not even expensive.

God, it was good. Best game i have played in recent years.

How do you spec Sylvando? I'm going straight for that group heal but I'm thinking about respeccing him and going all in on Whips.
>>
>>431546546
Believe me, you don't. While you're at it, get rid of useless skills that you start with on other characters.
>>
>>431546703
guile is really good, you get an increased chance for stealing and eventually you get an ability that's a guaranteed critical hit.
>>
>>431546797
oh, that I actually did. I just finally wanted boomerangs to be useful, they only had 30 years to make them viable.
>>
Wild Side buff on Erik.
Damn.
>>
>>431546893
but they've always been really good
>>
>>431546769
No. You're doing the right thing. Focus on his showmanship skills first. Hustle Dance scales with charm, so get that, get That's Amore, and get all those Charm boosters. That's the best way to build him.
>>
>>431546209
Erik's boomerang unironically is better choice than daggers. Both in terms of single target and aoe. Divide+double down is crazy damage and need 1 turns less for setup than victimizer combo.
>>431546769
Get his heal and pink roulette. After go dual daggers. All his best abilities scale of charm so stack it. He works best with Erik in tandem.
>>431547208
His sword tree is irredeemable garbage.
>>
>>431547208
Seems like you'd get to That's Amore quicker going through whips and I have to imagine Serena is going to get Multiheal eventually.
>>
>>
>>431547460
That's Amore is the thing you're going to be using with him the least. And really, don't use whips. Both swords and knives let him use a shield, which shoots his defense and evasion ratings up. Necessary on hard.
>>
>>431547736
Yeah but I already got swords on the hero and erik is the knives guy, he's my whip dude.
>>
>>431547736
definitely not necessary on stronger enemies mod.
>>
Hmm I'm still early but I encountered a metal slime and used Itemised Kill. Got a metallic slime item thats worth more than 1000 gold. I wanna sell it but I'm guessing it's rare and useful for crafting.

>tfw I thought you could marry best girl because of this doujin.
Worst part is you have to marry Gemma to get platinum.
>>
>>431548002
Money is literally useless in this game.
>>
>>431548002
you can always steal more, if 1000 gold is a lot of money at the part you're in then I'd say go for it.
>>
>>431548002
That item is far more useful than 1000g in 40 hours when you're rolling in 1000g per battle but those will take you half an hour to collect each you'll be kicking yourself if you sell it now.
>>
>>431548379
1000g is never a lot in this game.

Was she really designed by Toriyama? She looks much better than what he usually churns out.
>>
>>431548485
fair enough
>>
>>431548509
toriyama hasn't been personally designing any DQ characters since like DQ6
>>
>>431548509
Toriyama only did concept arts and few characters desings, everything else in the game was done by professional artists.
>>
>>431548683
Toriyama isn't a professional?
>>
>>431548509
NPCs are all designed by Eiichirō Nakatsu, not toriyama.

After 100 hours i finally beat the final boss, anyone else find him too easy? I was probably overleveled though, my main characters were 45-47 with Hero being 48 due to having 0/5 king metal slimes run away from me.
