Fight: let AI control you rmonsters based on your tactics that set on the monster (disabled in some occassion like monster scout challenge)
Scout: Catch the monster. This command only can be used once per battle. Unusable at some battles (boss battle; of course…).
Order: Manually command your monster
Tactics: set a tactic on your monster
Items: use items on your monster
Flee: run away from battle. You lose one turn if failed.
In battle you can switch your monster by pressing “Y” button. Reserved monsters still get EXP from battles (half of the amount that displayed at the end of the battle).
All Items will re-spawn (after you re-enter the dungeon) and have different content each time you check them. However this is not applied to the RED TREASURE CHEST, the content of the red treasure always same (with the one I wrote on the guide).
Weather (on the region) can changes from time to time. It affects monster that inhabit those regions, so make sure check the old region if you see weather change (rainy, etc) to see different monsters. You can change the time (day=> night) by talking to slime on your ship (post game)
In this game you can catch the monster you fight on the battle (except boss/event battle). To do this simply choose “scout” from your command screen. The success ratio will vary depends on your monster rank or level. So try to level up your monster/ synthesize to obtain a higher rank monster.
The battle will ends automatically once you successfully scout the monster, you won’t get any experience from that battle though. However if you failed to scout then the monster probably boost his party’ status which will cause a battle harder than usual. For Scouting guide visit THIS LINK
You buy and sell items using this thing. The stocks inside the machine depends on how many machine parts you have thrown into the box beside the machine (obtain the machine part doesn’t count, YOU NEED TO THROW THEM). You can obtain machine parts from treasure chest on the dungeon. you can get it from the battle as a drop from the monster too. Blue treasures are good sources for machine parts.
Recommended ways to obtain machine parts:
It’s very good to make your monster become stronger. You need 2 different electricity on the beast to synthesize them (+ and -). There is also neutral element monster that can be combined with + or – monster. However they can’t be combined together (can’t combine neutral with neutral). Synthesized monster can have up to 3 abilities that you can choose.
Unspent skill points will be halved on the new monster (if you have total 50 unspent skill points then the new monster will have 25 unspent skill points). This is same as the skill points that have been spent on the skill (you have 100 point on “healer” skill, if you choose to keep “healer” skill in new monster, then your “healer” skill will start at level 50). New monster will starts again from level 1, this is what makes the grinding become so tedious ….
Many guys asked what is 4 body synthesize and how to synthesize 4 monsters or more. 4 body synthesize basically makes 4 monsters become a grandfather/mother for desired monsters. so you synthesize 4 monsters to make 2 parents monsters and then synthesize those 2 monsters to get the desired monster.
Example: I created Orochi by using 4 monsters which are Wormonger, Missing lynx, Bjorn, and Empyrea. This mean that you need create “parent” monsters by combining 2 of them separately (Wormonger x Missing lynx) and (Bjorn x Empyrea). Parent monster doesn’t determine monster result, because the result is determined by 4 monsters in listed formula so you can free to choose any monster to become parent. In this case I chose Heligator and Bettleboy. See the screenshot for more information.
Each monster need different amount of EXP to level up. Some grow fast, some not. However grinding is still painful on “fast grow” monsters. Luckily this game has an item called metal ticket. This ticket will open a new area that inhabited by metal slime monster which will grant you a tons of EXP (all of you that have played dragon quest series must have known this).
Metal ticket can be obtained from the blue treasure chest. So make sure you go and check the blue treasure chest every time you re-enter the dungeon. Use the ticket and it’ll pop a new region (???) on the world map. Once you enter the area and then exit from it, the region (???; metal menagerie) will disappears. You can use metal ticket to make “???” appears again . You can buy metal ticket from liquid metal slime on your ship after beating the game once for 10.000 gold.
