Dragon Quest IX Post Game guide

First you need to solve quest number 39 to gain ability to fly. See this to know how to solve the quest. After you solve that quest go to Stornway, you can buy new armor and weapon from extra merchant in each shop (Gigant armor is nice :D).

Now Fly to Tower of Nod

It is located near Coffinwell and you must have ability to fly in order to reach it.

Enemy Drop list Exp
killing machine iron nails 1880
cumulus rex thunderball 1400
freezing fog ice crystal, sage’s elixir 1360
splatterhorn magic beast horn 980
swinoceros magic beast horn 610
metal king slime slime crown 120040
drakulard dragon scale 3450
stone guardian resurrock 2040
gigantes strength ring 3200

The dungeon is pretty straightforward. You can get decent amount of experience here, many enemy groups give you about 2000-4000 exp to one character. There is also metal king slime in this place but it is very rare and very hard to kill. Metal king slime has about 12-14 HP, so good luck when you are trying to kill it.

Tips by Tuppup:
Metal king slimes can be easily killed with spear skill Thunder Thrust and axe skill Hatched Man. Both attacks are always critical, so if you manage to hit, it’ll be 1 hit kil

Just keep go upstairs until you reach L7. In L7 you can climb the vine to find sleeping Chimaera. For now you can’t do anything to it because the quest is still locked at the time I write this guide (need wi-fi).

So just exit this dungeon and you have beaten bonus dungeon in dragon quest IX. Now it is time to grind your character’s level in grotto and hunting ingredients for perfect equipment.


Other thing you can do after that:

  • You can return to Realm of Almighty (when you are flying over in the world map try to disembark into impossible terrain and you will get this option). You can talk with Celestria and she will open a portal to  send you to Realm of Mighty so you can re-fight with Corvus.
  • There are many island that you can’t reach before because lack of transportation. Now you can Fly, so check my world map and visit many suspicious island. They usually lead you to another side quest or item. I haven’t explore them all, so I can’t write it here. For side quest i will add it on side quest section.
  • You can reach level 99 on your vocation and then do revocation  to Level 1. Skill points don’t lose so you can obtain all vocation abilities.
  • Talk with queen, princess, and king in Stornway to obtain Treasure Map

I think that is all you can do after finished the game. Will update this guide when I found optional BOSS in normal map (I heard there is one in small snow island).

    Lleviathan can be fought twice in the game, one is the fygg-changed form of Dylan Jones, and the other is a real Lleviathan that lives around for a long time. The first is a boss that must be beaten to continue the main story, the other is available in the post-game, and met through a quest given by Jona Jones .

  2. ErinKatzee says:

  6. The slime says:

  7. The slime says:

    When I go to the tower of nod the slime that gives u the quest to wake him up is not there so I can’t battle nod.also I want to get high lvl grottos so I can get slime armour and get the luminary class but when I beat the bosses of other treasure maps I don’t like lvl15-20 maps

  8. Hi says:

    Hi, nice list, but i ran into Barbatos in this dungeon, and it’s not in the list, so u might want to add that. Thanks 🙂

  9. who knows says:

    About legacy bosses, i am trying to get murdaw, but baramos is the right level, and not droping it. Help?

    • BlueSky says:

      Baramos must be lvl 16+ to drop the map and yo have 10% chances to drop it with an addicional 5% every 10 levels

      • HazzaTheDestroyer says:

        u actually have a 20% chance to get Murdaw which goes up 5% every 10 lvls. Baramos is an utter arsehole when hes lvl 16+, mainly cos he does this – attack,attack,attack,distruptive wave,attack,attack,kaboom,attack,kafrizz,attack,distruptive wave,attack,kaboom. or he does for me. he hardly does blazing fire so it wastes my MP by using reverse cycle.

  10. is there any thing to do or is post game boring

  11. bryan says:

    ive beaten the game and found my boat and went to stornway and then i saved the game and when i got back it was gone and now i cant go anywhere what do i do?

  12. The guy says:

    Iv seen on youtube that theres an after game boss in the well in stornway castle but whatever i do i only see the guy and he says he can’t squeeze through. I dont know what to. But i think it might be a wi-fi quest. but wi-fi only works on my pokemon game so i might as well have to use action replay

  13. Darrelleo143 says:

    What is the best weapon and armor? Please reply!!! 🙁

    • AA says:

      the best armor in the game is legendary armor which you get through alchemy and the best swords are uber falcon blade and the hypernova sword which you also get through alchemy but i personally think uber falcon blade is better

  14. unnamed person says:

    Somebody said that if you get a certain quest from Erinn and Patty, you can go to the “Realm of Memory” and rescue Corvus and Aquila, recruiting them for your team. I have a few questions concerning this:
    1. Is this true, or is someone pulling my leg?
    2. If quest exists, how do you acess it?
    3. Is it A)wi-fi B)gotten through multiplayer, or C)gotten after other quests?
    4. If C), which ones?
    5. How do you do this quest?
    6. Is it hard? and lastly
    7. If someone is pulling my leg, can I please wring their neck for getting my hopes up unnecessarily? ;D

    • anonymous says:

      you can get patty, erinn and sellma.(ive got all them already)
      And its true that you can get aquila but you have to do some quests to get these extra party members. (not sure
      about corvus)
      im still trying to get aquila
      but thats all i know

  15. unnamed person says:

    Yo, noobgodlike –
    Is there any easy way to find legacy boss maps? I only have Baramos Lv. 1, and have beaten him once. I refused to give him MY experience points, that have anything to do with it?

  16. Neon Helios says:

    Equinox drops a treasure chest! Tom opens it up.
    It contains a dragontail whip!

    Aww.. Was hoping for Vesta gauntlets there..

    • Daniel li says:

      hey if you want a vesta and other rare goodies that are 2% why not try out the hoimi graph it helps you get it 100% just search up on youtube:dragon quest 9 rare item exploit to see how to use and you can search on any search sites hoimi graph and i have done it and it worked wonderfully and i got everyting i needed. ^-^

  17. Kin says:

    Alright, I beat the game, Jona’s quest, and got Sterling’s but I have no idea what to do now. I’m kind of just wandering around aimlessly. I went to the Tower of Nod but the chimaera there was asleep and I couldn’t wake it up? What other quests (labeled STORY) are there to do???

  18. Nerdatron 5 says:

    how do you get high level grotto maps because i always seem to get up to level 60 and then the dam game gives me a level 50 map

  19. DQ10 says:

    i got the quest to fight nodoph
    first you need:
    wifi to access quest 162
    i forgot the other two quests the help you unlock quest 162 but one of them includes the mayoress in bloomingdale

  20. xxx says:

    like the stupid idiot that i am. i sold my miracle sword that i got from the pirate so now i cant do quest 121 does anyone know how i can get another one

    • Gramalamadingdong says:

      well, by looking around grottos and constantly checking the blue chests in Gittingham palace, you can find another miracle sword…and that’s why i have three of them.

    • R says:

      get an action replay they give you a code for all weapons it gives you 99 miracle swords

      • Bob says:

        Only losers who don’t know how to play the game cheat .but anyway a miracle sword is very useful after u get ur stats to 999, I only have attack , defense and health to 999, but the miracle sword and falcon blade are the most usefull I don’t even use the supernova sword. I think grotto hunting is the most useful thing to do because you get alchemy ingredients and find platinum king jewels and depending on the grotto you can find the best weapens in blue chests and the way to get your defense and everything to 999 is by stealing seeds from monsters that you find .like the seed of defence is droped by a brownie .if you guys need anymore help just ask.:)

        • DragonQuester says:

          I went to the tower of Nod, and i went up to the slime for the quest, and he wouldn’t give me the quest can you help me i just want to defeat him 🙁
