Dragon Quest IX Nintendo DS Guide Upover to Magmaroo

After getting the bow, you can return to Wormwood Creek in order to rest. Head west to enter new area called Wormwood canyon. Go to point (1), keep head west until you see a stone with dragon pattern. Press “yes” when you are  being asked to fire the arrow. There will be a bridge of light appear.

Now you must travel a long way in order to reach upover, your goal is volcano in middle of the map. (it will be more like one full dungeon so keep your party’s health).

(1): Dragon stone, (2): Brighten rock , (3): Wake robin, (4): tangle web, (5): Fisticup, (6): glass frit, (7): thunderball,(8): lava lump,(9): Upover

When you arrive on upover, go up to mayor’s house to talk with him. The guard will open a path to a new dungeon (near mayor’s house).

Before you go to that dungeon, there are few things you can do in this town:

(-) Check bookshelf in Mayor’s house to obtain recipe (Dragon digest)

(-) Go to Weapons shop to buy new equipment (there are fire blade and dragon claw). You can also grab mini medal from the chest.

(-) Go to house at northwest corner, check the bookshelf to obtain new recipe (Super Duper Ultra Mega Stuff to Make).

(-) There is a blue treasure chest on the house (right house from Armor shop).

Go into new dungeon when you are ready (stay away from magma because it will damage your character like poisoning pool before).

I suggest you equip healing item on every of your characters if your priest can’t heal all your characters at once.

Head southwest first and get out from the cave to obtain blue treasure chest. Continue go north to enter new area. Head northwest to grab 1500 Gold from treasure chests (you must across the lava, ouchh). Before going up using south stairs, you can grab seed of defence on east treasure chest.

Go north to return to L2 and grab Mini Medal. Return to B3 and head south. Grab Saint’s Ashes while crossing the bridge. Climb up the stairs and you will arrive at L4, You can grab Hades’ helm here but beware because it is curse (if you already equipped and want to remove it, use benediction to remove the helm). After getting Hades’ helm go to stairs on the north to go to L5.

In L5  just go south first to obtain safety shoe, return to inside and climb the stairs. You will arrive on L6, get out from the cave and grab blue chest while you are going to the top of Magmaroo.

Go to middle and

BOSS: Greygnarl

He only can attack once per turn but he has devastating skill called:

(-) Cloud of binding light: 60-90 damage to all party members. Luckily he rarely cast this

(-) Fierce fire: 20 fire damage to all (if you still have fire shield equip it on your character, my mage only get 10 damage from this attack)

(-) Claw attack: 40-60 damage to single character.

(-) Bite: 40-60 damage to single character.

As usual, make sure your characters act first before he does. Cast acceleratle (mage’s spell), buff (priest’ spell). If you train sword skill, you can use dragon slash here for a nice damage (about 150,a bit  higher  than falcon slash).

Talk with Greygnarl, try to return to upover via normal way and an old lady will come. After that you can use evac to return to upover.

    Hello again for the tenth-or-so time. I’ve been noticing that you seem to be getting your Easts and Wests mixed up quite often. West is to the left, East is to the right. 😀

    At the beginning of the guide, where it lists the things to do with the green bullets, one of them says that you need to go to the northeast house to get the recipes in one of the books, but the recipes in that house (The Mayor’s house) are from a different book. The one you’re referring to is the northwest house. I know it would be annoying for you to go through the whole guide and check your Easts and Wests, so if you want me to, I’ll just leave comments on the pages where I find them wrong. Thanks for reading my long-winded sentences. Saying them in one breath is hard. XD
