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).

  7. 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 :)

  8. 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.

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