Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|What move does Dhoulmagus use that takes away all supportive magic on your team? (including tension)||Dragon Quest 8
Wave of Ice. This can be rather frustrating. You have your Hero at 100 tension and he is ready to attack, but wait, Wave of Ice nulls his tension and everyone's support magic. You should probably get used to it because most bosses in the game have this annoying move. Thanks for playing!
|In the Dark Ruins, how do continue onward from the room with movable statues that have laser eyes?||Dragon Quest 8
Move the statues so the lasers hit The Godbird's wings. The lasers emitting from the statues don't go low enough to melt the ground or another statue for that matter. As for Munchie, there aren't any places for him to venture in.
|How do you lure a sleeping Argon Lizard out of its sleep, and close enough for you to fight it?||Dragon Quest 8
Throw a salamangoe on the ground. Sadly, you can't use the Prince as bait. If you throw rocks at the poor thing it will most likely run away and never be seen again. To get the lizard that is sleeping on the little island, you have to go across the log to the other side where you will see strange objects on the ground. Pick one up and go back across the log and up to a stone jutting out into the stream. Throw the salamangoe and the lizard will hop across to fight you. Another lizard is sleeping in a cave, here you use the same tactics as you did on the first one. After resting in the Hunting Grounds, Yangus will tell you that he found a monster lizard. It could have a heart big enough to suit the Prince's needs.
His music makes his henchmen confused and paralyzed. As far as defense it is almost the same as normal monsters in the area. He attacks more than he sings, unfortunately. Sadly you do have to beat him by fighting.
|What little blue creature do you see in front of Trodain Castle?||Dragon Quest 8
Slimy Smiley. The King slime and the metal slime are real monsters but you can't see them. Hori, the slime creator is a monster you can see but he is nowhere near here. Maybe by the lake southwest of Argonia Castle?
Retrieve the Venus Tear. You do have to fight through the labyrinth but not alone or to prove your strength. As for any bones, Yangus' friend doesn't ever say anything about a death of a loved one.
|What friend of Yangus do you find in the Pickham Region?||Dragon Quest 8
Red. As far as family and pets, we don't know. He does meet Red, who asks of him a rather daunting task.
Tortured Soul. The boss here is none other than a Tortured Soul. Most likely a fallen bishop from the abbey that used to be there. He is somewhat of a challenge, but not much. You do fight Marcello and a statue of the Hero but that is much later in the game.
|To get into the Tower of Alexandra, you need to know a secret that only the residents of Alexandria know. What is it?||Dragon Quest 8
The door needs to be pushed up, not opened like a normal door. Flying does not come until much later in the game. Basically nothing ever happens between you and Rosalind. There is no cave, so the front door is the front door.
|Why are Kalderasha's fortune telling powers weak and not as reliable in Farebury?||Dragon Quest 8
He is using a glass ball instead of a crystal ball. Kalderasha does have powers but they were never stolen. The only thing that Dhoulmagus did was kill Master Rylus. Even though he drinks a lot, he doesn't drink enough to lose his powers! He lost them by throwing his crystal ball into a waterfall and using a glass one in its place.
|This question does not have to do with the arena monsters but it is right up there with them. What creature does Munchie have to steer into a hole in a ceiling to scare Prince Charmles out of his hiding spot?||The Monsters of "Dragon Quest 8"
Lizard. In Castle Argonia, You have to find a way to get Charmles out of his room. To do this you need to explore the castle for a crack in a wall (hint: It's behind some breakable jars). You run into the lizard with Munchie, so the lizard will fall through the hole, onto Charmles. He runs out and you are able to escort him into the Royal Hunting Grounds.
Dragon Robe. This is the only way to obtain a Dragon Robe. It is most likely going to be the best armor for either Angelo or Jessica. You have to make the Metal King items if you want them.
The hit points, atk, and defense of the monsters are doubled.. This is most likely the most difficult rank there is. The monsters here have very high attack, defense, and HP. Therefore you need about the same. There isn't very many monsters that fit this category but my advice is to scout around for monsters that meet with the above stats. While your looking for them level up. When you level up, your monsters become stronger. Also, at no point do you fight more than three monsters, or use less than three (unless one is dead).
Puff-Puff. Puff-Puff is a weird. It makes your team members fall in love with her and they lose turns. The hip drop, kisses, dancing, and puff-puff are all moves that Jessica can learn to freeze her enemies!
Ring of Clarity. You also get an amazing ability to call your team into battle to fight for you. They can't stay forever, sadly. They are very useful though, call them at the beginning of boss fights for an advantage. Titan's belt you can get at Pickham casino. The bunny suit is a prize you have already received!
Team Max HP x2. More or less any combination of slime will give them HP x2. A few teams have the Fight extra turn ability which means that when called into battle they fight for an extra turn.
Both monsters attack a single enemy and you receive gold equal to half the damage.. Can be used to gain gold, but not very useful. Only use this if you need gold badly. Once again, only infamous monster drop coins. Hardly any monster drops anything close to 1000 gold pieces, unless it is a boss.
Strength Ring, Monster Slots. The strength ring can be mixed with a titan belt in the the alchemy pot to make a Mighty Armlet( atk +15). Then you take that and a Dragonsbane (Buy in Orkutsk, Tyran Gully) to make a DragonSlayer (atk 83). A very nice sword or you can sell it for 22500 gold! The Liquid Metal Sword is a very powerful sword (atk 118). You make it by taking the rusty sword, slime crown, and orichalum. It is very much worth it! You do receive the Hero Spear but not until beating Rank A.
Slimes. They are called the Slimeys. If you have collected some monsters, this and the following battles should be cake. You do fight Treefaces and Witches later in the ranks.
Hackzilla. Hackzilla's stats will improve drastically as your level rises. He may even become the most powerful monster there is! The others on the other hand do not. Talos, found on the Holy Isle of Neos, is a strong monster for the starting and middle ranks, but his stats do not change at ALL. Foul Fowl, found north of Baccarat just by following the road, is about the same.
The only thing that changes is his agility which does not cut it in the arena! Squiggles is the weakest monster in the game. Most of his stats do not come close to breaking 100! I would not have this weakling on my team at any time.
Gold, silver, and copper monster coins. When you defeat a monster, depending on the monster itself, you will get either a copper, silver, or gold coin. Not very many monsters drop gold coins, which are 1000 gold each. You do not however, get tons of gold or experience. The gold and experience you get is well, about the same you are already getting. The only thing infamous monsters drop is some kind of coin.
Mazin. Goldman, who is on the Holy Isle of Neos. Brickman, who can be found South west of Peregrin Quay. Stoneman, can be found after beating rank B of the monster arena and getting the Godbird can be found on the highplace of the Horthwest Isle (Dark Ruins). Together they form the Amazing Mazin! These golems can easily make it through Rank A and S in the Monster Arena. This is HIGHLY recommended if you have not already beat the monster arena.
|When you first meet Morrie, his home is south of Pickham, a stone building with red and green flames, and he gives you three memos. These memos tell you of certain monsters Morrie wants. Of the three, what are two of them?||The Monsters of "Dragon Quest 8"
Squiggles, Smiles. Squiggles can be found south of Red's place on the beach, and Smiles is near the entrance of castle Trodain. The other monster is Lonely Joe, who is around the Maella Abbey. While the incorrect answers are real monsters, they are not the ones he is looking for. Slimehopper is one you have probably already met. He is near the waterfall cave. Torchman is a way into the game, he can be found in the desert after defeating monster arena Rank D. Metaly and Metabble are extremely hard to find. You can get Goldman as soon as you find the first three monsters, and after you get a ship. He is on the island on the middle of the map, along with another very powerful monster Talos. Be very careful when fighting Talos, as he has very high attack and defense. Hackzilla is a great addition to the team, he can be found outside of Farebury, and he is also a tough fight as he can attack the whole party at one time, or attack the same person twice.
Marcello. Marcello is an interesting character. He occasionally shows hints of being somewhat of a good person, but his lofty aspirations interfere with his better judgment. He despises Angelo because he feels Angelo has been spoiled.
110. This is the final prize you can get from Princess Minnie, and by the time I got it I didn't have any particular use for it. This weapon can be equipped by Yangus and can hit a whole group of enemies. It is powerful but the fact that you cannot use any weapon skills with it takes away from it.
Metal King Armor. The Metal King Armor has an incredibly high amount of defense and it also reduces the damage of both fire and ice attacks by 30! To create this armor, throw a Liquid Metal Armor, Slime Crown, and some Orichalcum into your alchemy pot.
Shimmering Dress. The Shimmering Dress does not alter her normal appearance in any way. The Dangerous Bustier and the Magic Bikini both give her a more...risque appearance. Jessica's Outfit is the set of clothes you see her wearing when you first meet her.
Three. Angelo and Hero can both equip swords right away. Jessica, on the other hand can not. Once you reach level 30 in her knife skills category, she will be able to use a sword in battle.
Horse. The Princess Meana has been turned into a horse just like the way Trode has been turned into an ugly creature. This was because of Dhoulmagus' magic. Thanks for playing.
30. Medicinal herbs are found everywhere, cupboards, jars and the such. They won't be any good to you later on when you have more health though but they are cheap.
Buffalo Bill. Buffalo Bill is very hard because when you first get to him he takes off about 25 points of damage. He is closer the tower in the east than Alexandria actually.
