Dragon Quest IX: Legacy Boss Hunter - Baramos

Introduction

This hub is a guide on how to beat the Archfiend Baramos in Dragon Quest IX, where he appears as a legacy boss. If you have arrived at this hub, then there's a strong chance that you're stumped on how to beat Baramos. Feel free to read my article on grotto exploring before you get your feet wet here, as Baramos is a lot tougher than your regular grotto bosses.

So, scroll down and read all about Baramos!

Suggested Party Setup

You're going to want your party members at around level 50, as a bare minimum, preferably with some levels in other vocations as well. My first hub in this Legacy Boss Hunter series gives you the recommended party setup and their roles, as well as my party member's stats as well.

Here, I'm going to touch on what items you should have in each party member's bag. I personally recommend each character hold 3 Magic Waters and one Yggdrassil Leaf. if you can double these amounts (especially in the case of those Leaves, which are pretty rare), I suggest you do so. You'll need the MP and you'll need to revive people without worrying about Zing's fail chance (such as in cases where you've lost 2 party members in one round or some other drastic situation like that.).

You want your Paladin to have the book you get for completing the 100 Shield Quest (kill 10 Killing Machines with Blockenspiel). Whoever has the book in his/her inventory auto-blocks critical hits, and since Baramos loves those and your Paladin is supposed to tank...

On a similar note, you want your healer to have a Wand equipped. I stress this all the time, but it's that important. The MP difference if you don't have a Wand over longer battles is too drastic.

Baramos' Loot

Well, I'm sure everyone is curious as to what Baramos drops. Well, it depends on his level:

  • Level 1: Mini Medal (100%), Aliahan Boots (20%), Silver Orb (2%)
  • Level 8: Mini Medal (100%), Aliahan Boots (25%), Silver Orb (~2%)
  • Level 9-15: Mini Medal (100%), Aliahan Clothes (20%), Silver Orb (~3%)
  • Level 16: Mini Medal (100%), Murdaw's Map (10%), Silver Orb (~3%)

As his level goes even higher, the chances of Map and Orb drops are increased.

Baramos' Battle Strategy

The Archfiend Baramos is a monstrous wizard of great renown who starred as Dragon Quest III's first final boss (the other one being Zoma, who you fought about a dozen or so hours later in another castle.). In this game, he serves as your first taste of a Legacy Boss. All of the following are tidbits and facts I've picked up over the course of my failed attempts of beating this boss, which I finally overcome as recently as yesterday:

  • Kafrizz: Does 150-170 (spell) fire damage to one party member.
  • Kaboom: Does 130 (spell) damage to the whole party.
  • Blazing flames: Does 130-150 (breath) fire damage to the whole party.
  • Physical attacks do 130 damage to a character with 270 Defense.
  • Critical attacks do 340-380 damage.
  • A Warrior with 386 Attack does about 86 damage to Baramos with a regular physical attack.
  • A Minstrel with 293 Attack does about 43 damage to Baramos with a regular physical attack.
  • He can attack twice a turn, but doesn't always do so.

As for his battle strategy, he'll use spells with reckless abandon, to the point that he'll even try to Kafrizz someone who has used Magic Mirror within the last 3 turns (is he blind? :P). If you're at a particularly low level, you might want to use this to your advantage and use Magic Mirror on your whole party to have him defeat himself (worked for me!).

His common attack patterns include:

  • Critical attack, then Kaboom.
  • Critical attack, then action skip.
  • Kafrizz, then Kaboom (I pity the party member who got Kafrizzed if he/she didn't have Magic Mirror up.)
  • Physical attack, then physical attack again (rare attack pattern).
  • Critical attack, then critical attack (thankfully rare; totally stinks when he does it though).
  • Blazing flames, then Kaboom (he tends to alternate between this and the spell blitz attack patern up at the third bullet; these are his two most common attack patterns.)

Conclusion

Now that you have this knowledge, I urge you to go defeat him! You might want to gain more levels than what I suggested in my other hub, but you know from my experience that it's beatable at the levels I did it (just a BIT tough. ;P).

Feel free to comment if you need additional help with this boss or want to suggest I add something to this hub. :)

Until the next time, take care and have fun! ;)

Zing's Fail Chance makes me rage so hard, It tends to rear its ugly head in the worst possible scenarios. Great guide! Extra points for covering the possible move sets. Good job :D


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Thanks for the comment! :D

Yeah, I've had Zing fail on me three times straight. -_-

I remember one of my failed attempts:

Sage dies to critical.

Minstrel Zings next turn.

Zing fails.

Critical hit on the Minstrel.

:'(

That did not feel good at all. XD


Anothermachine 6 years ago

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on this ... after you have beaten Baramos for the first time, he will ask you for the experience from the battle. Do not give it to him as is will increase Baramos to level 2... and that don't sound so tough till you realize you wont beat him again till around level 75 with three level 60+ backing you. Just use the level 1 Baramos and keep the exp for your self till you get tougher. I made3 the mistake of giving him the EXP i got the first time I killed him and it was a HUGE mistake.


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Thanks a lot for the advice! :)

I was thinking of adding that and the possible drops at a later date (still missing Baramos' third drop, and I'm OCD about being as complete as I can. :D).

(For those curious at the moment, he drops Aliahan Boots as his second drop at a 20% chance of doing so. He still drops a Mini Medal in that case.)

I didn't know Baramos got such a huge power boost in one level. Since my characters aren't even in their 50s yet, I was holding off from giving him the experience.


Deargdoom 6 years ago

my team has my character level 99 warrior a level 72 warrior a level 70 priest and a level 54 paladin and i have no problems with anyone dieing due to the fact i give my team mirror armor to deflect most of his magic attacks


Deargdoom 6 years ago

and i forgot to add that i also kileed him 10 times at level 4 while i was level 70 to get levels up and it managed to work for me :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

You're making my team look bad! :P

I have a:

Level 49 Minstrel

Level 50 Warrior

Level 46 Paladin

Level 46 Sage

It only gets nasty if Baramos starts spamming critical hits, but Sage's Kazing goes a long way towards helping out. :D

What are the stats on your level 99 Warrior anyways? :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

strength: 504 agility: 228 resilience: 600 deftness:181 charm:109 magic mending: 230 magical might: 30 max. HP:850 max . MP: 116 attack: 590 defence:778 style: 400 all the stats on my warrior

i also have 100% in swords, shields, courage, wands, faith, claws, guts, hammers, axes, fource and bows


Deargdoom 6 years ago

o and i have also managed to get my team up in levels since last post they are now:

me level 99 warior (still)

level 82 warrior

level 78 priest

level 59 paladin

and can kill baramos without anyone going lower than 50 health (still haven't died against him yet) so i think i must be one lucky person lol XD


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Well, with those levels... :P

Those are some powerful stats you got there! :)

I just got the Armamentalist vocation (couldn't be bothered to get it before), so I'm going to get some cheap levels to get some bonus skill points.

My most developed role is actually my Sage. I have her getting bonus points in Spellcraft.

I found out I have to get 100 points in Fans so I can use Reverse Cycle to blow back Baramos' breath attacks. My tank so needs that. :S

She has 23 skill points saved up, so those other 77 could take a while...

(Just for the record, my Minstrel and Warrior are male and my other two are female. :P)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

all my characters are male lol and i have got 100 skill points free on my character but still cant decide where to put them lol

and what armor does your warrior ministrel and paladin wear when you fight baramos becuase i use the upgrade from mirror armor (cant remember the name at the moment) so that gives me a chance to send back 3 of his spell attacks which for me works well i managed to deflect 5 spells in 3 turns which made me kill him in 6 turns lol :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

and it really works great when he goes heywire because he hits himself for about 200 damage per deflect :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

My Warrior and Minstrel wear Catroptic Armor (that's the name you're looking for; it's the golden Mirror Armor upgrade). ;)

My Paladin wears Sacred Armor for the life regen.

For spell deflection, I use Magic Mirror on all of my characters.

Wait...haywire? What level is your Baramos at anyways? :D

(I haven't leveled up my Baramos yet.)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

my baramos is level 4 and not going to level him anymore yet because he is great for mini medal farming because i can kill him in 6 turns and for every 15th mini medal i get i use on orichalcum for armor and weapons etc at the moment i have killed enough time to get 10 orichalcums so that 150 times if my math is correct lol xP man i spend to much playing this game i wonder if i put this much effort into my college work i might get an A in everything lol XD


Deargdoom 6 years ago

does anyone know if map level drops are actually random or drop around the level you are because i keep getting level 60 - 70 maps and my team is:

level 99 warrior ( me and still)

level 91 warrior

level 85 priest

level 65 paladin

i would understand the maps of level 60 - 70 for me paladins level but doesn't the rest of the team affect the maps level seen as there levels are much higher?


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Oh, I know the feeling man. I graduated not too long ago and have a Bachelor's Degree in Microbiology, but yeah I always put more effort into my videogames than my studies. Still graduated with a 3.66 GPA though. :D

Anyways, back to the game:

As far as I know, map drops are randomly leveled, but scaled to your party's level, or should I say the average of your party's level. So 99+91+85+65 = 340. We average it, and get a result of 85. It's quite possible to get maps lower than your party's average level though. In practice, it's actually very hard to get a high-leveled map, even if your whole party is full of 99's.

(The actual formula for map levels is messy and somewhere on the net; I don't know it by heart. :P)

So, seeing as how you're a returning favorite to my hub... ;)

I'd like to invite you to join DQForums.com if you haven't already. It's a young site, but it's growing daily and you seem like you really enjoy this game. :D

Noah K-M 6 years ago

I still need help fighting Baramos and i don't have high levels, 51 gladiator, 51 warrior, 51 priest and 33 mage. do u recommend leveling up? if u guys help a lot i might be able to give u some tips. :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

First, check out the hub I wrote up detailing my party setup. It will also explain the party roles I might mention during this comment: http://hubpages.com/games-hobbies/Dragon-Quest-IX-...

Next, I'm going to recommend you get Magic Mirror on all of your characters. It's part of the Shield skill tree; you'll need 100 skill points for each character that wouldn't be able to use a shield normally. In your case, your Gladiator would need to max out the shield tree to be able to use a shield. Anyways, Magic Mirror bounces back all hostile spells for several turns.

Also, go to Swinedimples Academy and do the Shield quests so you can get the book that gives a character immunity to critical hits when equipped with a shield (equip this on your tank or your healer).

Lastly, your Mage could use some levels. Your other characters are fine. :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

thanks for the invite i have joined lol and my characters levels have gone up and so have my map levels lol my team is now:

me level 99 warrior

level 96 warrior

level 89 warrior

and level 69 paladin

and the map levels have gone from 60 - 70 from 70 - 90 i have found 16+ level 70 - 80 maps now and 4 maps level 80 - 90


Deargdoom 6 years ago

that should say level 89 priest lol got bit carried away writing warrior lol xP :)


Noah K-M 6 years ago

Thx, i really liked ur help and ill check the hub u reccomended.


Noah K-M 6 years ago

Where is the shield guy in Swenadimples? XD


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

He's on the first floor of the academy. He's one of the instructors that shows up after you beat the ghost haunting the academy. His name is Buckler if I'm not mistaken. :P


Noah 6 years ago

thx :), my friend is helping me figh baramos


Deargdoom 6 years ago

i have almost gotten all my team to level 99 now apart from my paladin whos level 70ish and my baramos is at level 4 and i can kill him in 6 hits do you think i should level him up a few or wait for my paladins level to go up first?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

Noah do you use catropic armor on any of your characters?

and at the levels you are i would concider having at least 2 of your team members hold a yggdrasil dew to heal the whole party when things get bad and also do you have the warriors handbook? it helps me alot when fighting baramos with countering his physical attacks and the catropic armor with deflecting spell attacks


Deargdoom 6 years ago

o and also another thing that helps me is that i have whipping boy ability on my paladin and my 2 warriors so if one of my team is close to dieing i protect them and then get a heal in so they don't die


Deargdoom 6 years ago

hope i helped :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@Noah: No problem. :D

@Deargdoom: I don't really think it matters much at this point. :P

Worst case scenario is that your Paladin keeps getting stomped once you level up Baramos. If that happens, just go grind metal slimes or something for a while. But, with 3 level 99's I don't see that happening. :D


Noah K-M 6 years ago

Deargdoom, thx for the advice, but i don't no where to get the armor u mentioned or the yggdrasil dew. Also since ur helping me, here is a great site for finding grotto maps.

http://dq9.ffsky.cn/maplocation.htm

also there is a blue ches west of Zere Rocks that sometimes gives mini medals :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

You need one Yggdrasil Leaf and one Elfin Elixir to create Yggdrasil Dew via alchemy. :)

Also, like I told Deargdoom before, feel free to join DQForums at: http://dqforums.com/

Feel free to invite anyone who enjoys the Dragon Quest series as a whole as well. :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

yggdrasil leaf island off the coast of gleeba

elfin elixir: nectar north of batsureg past the bridge then go south east down a grass area and there is a flower patch don't go into mt ulzuun if you do its the wrong area, east of swinedimples academy to some stairs then just keep going south till you find flowers and south of slurry quay past the bridge there is a flower patch there to

royal soil: mad moi at zere rocks, drastic drackel at womwood canyon i think (near light bridge) there a little patch north west of porth llaffen and alos north of batureg above where the boys(chiefs of batsureg) mum is burried

and yggdrasil leaf on an island near gleeba nearer the south side i think ^_^


Deargdoom 6 years ago

omg dude you are awesome i have loads of maps undiscovered even tho i cant read what ever language its in i can see the areas where the maps are :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

hey does anyone know a way i can raise my teams attack other than egg on and gritty ditty? because know i have learnt gritty ditty i have baramos defeated in 3 turns and hes now level 5 :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Mage's and Armamentalist's Oomph.

Psyche Up (which is pretty much a self Egg On)

Double Up (part of the Guts skill tree). Increases your attack by a lot, but reduces your defense a little as well.

Those are all the ways I've discovered myself. :P


Deargdoom 6 years ago

thanks i was hoping there was another thig like gritty ditty because i use my spuishy priest to use gritty ditty and then get my warriors and paldin to attack before a monster can use disrupt

so thigs like psyhe up don't really do any good if it just gets disrupted straight after ive used it xP

o and for anyone who doesn't know when baramos gets to level 8 he learns disrupt which can get really annoying at times xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ha N key got stuck in last post xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

i know this has nothing to do with baramos but does anyone know how to get the kawasaki locker map? i have been looking all over google etc and cant find out how to get it all i find is information of drops from the treasure chests and stuff like that not how to obtain the map :( can anyone help me please?.. :(


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

I was wondering when Baramos learned that...

He used to love to spam that in Dragon Quest 3. :S

To find the Kawasaki Locker Map, you need to find someone who has it and Tag them. :P

Might have to fly to Japan to get it. (It's a map some lucky Japanese player got randomly). Or, pray you're so lucky yourself to get a map like that. :P

(The chances for such a map to turn up randomly are almost stupidly low, according to someone who mathed it out).


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ah so it could be a treasure map that could drop from any boss i fight? and o yer dude what level is your team now? was just wondering lol :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Yep. The Kawasaki map is just a regular level 60-70ish map that has Metal King Slimes all over the last (non-boss) floor. That's why it's so coveted. :P

My party at the moment is:

Minstrel 55

Warrior 55

Paladin 50

Sage 50

My Baramos beating record is 14 turns though. Considering I spend 2 turns preparing my tank every 6-7 turns... XD


Deargdoom 6 years ago

my 2 warriors are level 99

my priest is level 99

and my paladin is now level 80

and my baramos record is now 3 turns and hes level 8 so im going to level him till it atleast takes me about 7-8 turns to kill him lol :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

o yer and what gear do your characters have? because i have got the erdrick's helmet and shield and they boost me up loads they are a serious item to get in my opinion they made baramos's hit level go from 24 to 4 - 6 damage on my main character just by putting them 2 items on him :p :


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

I don't have any of Erdrick's equipment. :S

If that has anything to do with the Wi-Fi shop, then I have no way of connecting to it. :P


Dergdoom 6 years ago

No there quest items quest 49 "Rock on!" you get from a boy in zere rocks he gives you a rusty shield as a reward use 1 oricalchum 9 glass frit and the shield to make erdrick's shield and and rusty helm you get from 40 + medals given to the pirate in dourbridge use 1 oricalchum and 9 glass firt and the helm to get erdrick's helmet there is also a sword but i don't remember where to get it but i don't personally use it i use uber falcon blade with my 3 attackers :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Oh, I didn't know that. :o

Interesting. :O

I'll have to get those items then. :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

OMG! i am so lucky i got a silver orb drop from baramos and a pair of aliahan boots and then it said my character managed to steal a silver orb and a pair of aliahan boots so i managed to get 2 silver orbs and 2 aliahan boots :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

you don't have to get them but they have really helped me so i was just recomending them lol XD


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Well, if they helped you, they'll probably help me as well. :P

I've gotten just the pair of Aliahan Boots. I've yet to be so lucky as to get a Silver Orb. :(


Deargdoom 6 years ago

baramos is now level 9 and i have managed to get and i now have 4 silver orbs lol XD


Deargdoom 6 years ago

baramos level 10 and still 3 turns and hes dead lol xP o and do you know what level he strats to drop treasure maps? :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

http://dragonquest.wikia.com/wiki/Baramos

Level Range Secondary Drop Orb

1-3 Aliahan boots 20% Silver Orb 5%

4-8 Aliahan boots 25% Silver Orb 5%

Deargdoom 6 years ago

hey winterfate i have 221 unspent talents on my main character (my warrior) what do you think i should use them on?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

grrr i need a new comp click post comment once and it's come out as 2 post xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

damn Murdaw is as hard as baramos at level 16 when he is level 1 lol nd he doesn't even know disrupt yet xP


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

I can just erase the double posts. No big deal. :P

221? :o

Well I've written guides for half of the skill trees unique to each vocation. You can start out here:

http://hubpages.com/games-hobbies/Dragon-Quest-IX-...

In general, look for HP boosts. Those are always good. Afterwards, look around for Resilience boosts, as those add to your Defense. Besides that, if your Warrior doesn't have a critical hit move (for hunting Metal Slimes), that's always something good to invest in.

Does he have 100 in Shields?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

my warrior has axe crit ability amd spear crit ability lol and as afr as i know he has all the resilience, strength and health boosts he can get all i think i have left to get is deftness, agility luminary and ministrel abilities and some weapons skills (knives, whips, fans and staffs)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

and yer i got the shield ability to help me kill corvus killed him no problem when he couldn't crit me lol


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

:o

You have a LOT of skill points allocated then. :/

I'm out of suggestions then. XD

Oh wait, Fans...get 100 in Fans so you can use Reverse Cycle if you want to make your Warrior a tank (you need to have a Fan equipped of course; Reverse Cycle reflects breath attacks).

Ok, now I'm really out of suggestions. :P


Deargdoom 6 years ago

lol i thought you were ment to be like an uber player who can help almost everyone lol xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

like a guru to the game lol


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ok my character is:

level 99 warrior

level 50 priest

level 50 mage

level 50 martial artist

level 50 thief

level 50 ministrel

level 50 gladiator

level 50 paladin

level 50 armamentalist

level 50ranger

level 50 sage

and level 50 luminary

do you think my character would be ok against bosses like like atlas etc if the rest of my team is level 99?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

and i mean if i were to swap vocations to something different other than my warrior :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

You said it: Almost everyone. You're an exception. :P

Well, if you swap vocations your stats will go down (because you'd be dropping from 99 to 50), but you have so many levels in everything that I have a hard time seeing you losing a fight to anything soon. :P


Deargdoom 6 years ago

haha well ill try it and if it works then i got a new why of leveling my other vocations other than hunting liquid metal slimes at slime hill lol XD


Deargdoom 6 years ago

that should say new way lol not new why xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

hey winterfate do you live in england?.. :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@Deargdoom: No, I don't live in England. I live in Puerto Rico. :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

damn cant seem to find anyone in england that plays this game lol even my friends in college don't play it they prefer xbox xP


deargdoom 6 years ago

damn this sage quest is hard i have to kill atlas with zam and its taking forever because if my other guys attack he will die and i wont get quest complete but my zam is weak and does about 35 damage max lol xP should of raised magic might a bit i think lol xP


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Use Caster Sugar/Channel Anger and Egg On your Sage. Tension affects spells as well, as long as they have a magnitude.

For example, Frizz can be boosted via Tension because it does a certain amount of damage. Omniheal isn't affected by Tension (and won't remove it from your character if used) because it always heals to full, regardless of your Magical Mending.


Deargdoom 6 years ago

lol just killed him took me like 20 turns lol but i did it and finally got the 2 spells for price of one ability from sage book lol :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

lol on boss fights my priest can do a fair bit of damage now multithrust with spear does about half the damage my 2 warriors do lol couldn't even let him attack atlas xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

my character (warrior) 1000 - 1500

warrior 2 1000 - 1200

priest 500 - 700 damage (with spear)

paladin 700 - 1000 damage xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

hey winterfate do you have any hubs on other bosses like murdaw and dhoulmagus etc? :) or any other special bosses in the game ? :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

if you don't do you know where i might find one?.. :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

No, no and GameFaqs.com (they have walkthroughs for a lot of games there; pretty sure they have a DQ IX walkthrough as well), in the order you wrote those questions. ;)

Like I said, I'd write one about Murdaw but I haven't gotten his map yet. And, it's been far TOO long since I've fought Dhoulmagus in DQ VIII, and I haven't found his map in this game either so... :P


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ah ok thanks for the info and also do you know where/ how i can get a greygnarl map? i have gone online and found people saying he appears in grottoes with these names ion them regardless of level of the map:

dread, hurt, gloom, doom, evil, ruin and death but all i can find is atlas and fowleye in everyone grotto i go in with that name :(


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

You're just going to have to look harder. :/

Sorry I can't be of more help, it's just the randomizer messing with you again. :P

I can't help against the randomizer. XD


Deargdoom 6 years ago

grr stupid randomizer xP im always unlucky when im searching for something particular xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

hey winterfate you know the randomizer for map bosses is there like a certain percent to get like which boss in which dungeon? :)

Specifically Section 9.1. I was going to paste the whole thing, but it turned out to be one poorly-formatted wall of text. :P


flameron 6 years ago

you can get a ydrigsels leaf on an island so their not rare. ive already got three and i am not far in the game.


Deargdoom 6 years ago

thanks dude and also is it true that if you help someone with a grotto you get the same map?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ok now im little confused lol the site you sent me says any map level 58 - 99 can have greygnarl and then another site i found on google says only maps with dread, hurt, gloom, doom, evil, ruin and death in the name of the map regardless of level can have him in it... :(

any advice on what you think i should do or do both ( level 58 - 99 maps with tem names in them) ?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

o and also does anyone know a site where i can find out release dates from the dqvc?

(a website i can go on to find out what quests are released on what dates etc :) )

@Deargdoom: I don't know the specifics, but I think it has something to do with that. I know that if you connect with other players you can trade maps, but since I've never done it... :P

Perhaps those map names you mention only appear for maps of levels 58-99? :P

And no, I have no clue, since I currently have no way of connecting to the DQVC. :(


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ok the name thing is rubish i have just found him in a grotto with its name is true and i think the level is true to because i found him in a level 80 grotto with the name doom in it :D and damn is he strong and he gets 3 turn to attack :(


Deargdoom 6 years ago

whoops i got that wrong lol it was a treasure map called "Ruby Ruins of Dread" level 80 :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

3?

*gulp*

That sounds pretty ouch. He does drop a Yggdrasil Leaf every time you beat him though. :P

I've been trying to get the Murdaw map from a level 16 Baramos. No success so far, but all of my characters have gained two levels by now. XD


Deargdoom 6 years ago

nice dude lol i finally got my dragonlord map lol 8 times to kill greygnarl it took me and i got an orichalcum in the process lol :D

o and when you get to murdaw he doesn't really do many magic attacks even when hes level 16 so i would advise just to wear sacrsanct and high level defence armor with him lol :) but dhoulmagus use's magic on like every attack xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

psaro (map drop from dragonlord level 16 + ) i think is going to be the hardest boss he learns whack at level 5 xP just giving a heads up about it :)


Noah K--M 6 years ago

sorry i wasn't online, but i now find it easy to beat baromos. Winterfate, try having 2 healers, i tried it and it works well, so if one dies, the other can revive him.

right now, i have a...

Level 70 gladiator

Level 64 warrior

Level 69 priest

Level 34 sage

I also got the shield book for my main dude so he blocks all crits.

Also if you get a sage to level 15 and you do the quest for the sages in the pages, he will give you a sages robe. Do either of you have lumiary? I was wondering if i should work toward it.

Record for beating Baramos is..... 5 turns. happy hunting! XD


Deargdoom 6 years ago

my character is level 50 in luminary and for me i think its a bit pointless but then again im more of a warrior/ gladiator type person and just as a tip noah when you get gladiator level to 40 and complete the quests you get a scroll that sometimes gives you an extra hit which is pretty good :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

o and also does anyone know where/how i can get metal slime armor? i don't get that haomi table thing so im not very good at timing treasure chests for items xP


Noah K--M 6 years ago

Yeah, i agree that timing chests is really hard and i also stink at it. I also made the erdricks helm from what you said earlier, but where can u get glass frits quickly? Should i level up baramos to 2 or should i keep him the same? i also just got all 3 of his drops in one battle! :)

i have the upgraded sacred armour,mirror armour and some robes on. Should i make the upgraded mirror armour?

Also how do u get the ring for that armor?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

well in my opinion i would keep baramos at level 1 till all your group is atleast level 60 + to play it safe but if you like a risk then i say evel him lol :) and catholicon ring is in alchemy.

cathlicon ring = 1 rousing ring + 1 sober ring + 1 contra band.

rousing ring = 1 gold ring + 1 sleepy stick + 3 wakerobin.

sober ring = 1 gold ring + 1 sandstorm spear + 1 panacea.

contra band = 1 gold ring + 1 poison needle + 1 special antidote.

gold ring = stornway items shop

sleepy stick = batsureg weapons shop

wakerobin = bloomingdale items shop

sandstorm spear = alchemy ( 1 holy lance + 2 kitty litter + 2 glass frit) and i think its also buyable in bourbridge

panacea = alchemy ( 1 special medicine + 1 superior medicine + 1 moonwort bulb) and i think it can also be bought in some items shops.

poison needle = alchemy ( 1 magic beast horn + 3 manky mud) and i think it can be bought in bloomingdale at weapons stand.

special antidote = alchemy ( 1 antidotal herb + 1 medicinal herb) and can be bought in items shops.

and there is a spawn place for glass frit in djust desert(south west of gleeba palace), wyrmwing (cant remember where there but it says it in my items list and you can also get it from killing/ half inching cyclowns


Deargdoom 6 years ago

hope i gave enough info :) and can anyone give me any tips on how to get slime crown? i have been killing king metal slimes for 10 - 15 minutes now and all i have managed to get is 2 orichalums xP just my luck lol :(


Deargdoom 6 years ago

orichalcums # spelt it wrong in last post lol :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ive killed 70 metal king slimes now and not even 1 slime crown :( am i just unlucky or something? :(


Noah K-M 6 years ago

i no how to get the slime crown, but im warning you, its really bad, the edricks helmet is SO MUCH better, do u still want to no.


Noah K-M 6 years ago

where are metal kind slimes


Noah K-M 6 years ago

metal king slime, srry


Deargdoom 6 years ago

yer i know its a bad helm lol i need it to make a metal king equipment lol :) need 1 slime crown 1 orichalcum and any liquid metal slime armor to make metal king equipment :) and metal king slimes are in high level grottos :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

also i read on a site that apparently any treasure map with diamond in the name drops metal slime armor and other high level items :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

is what i wrote on that last post true?.. :) if so i have a level 90 grotto with diamond in its name and im going to grind it like mad lol :)


Noah K-M 6 years ago

thx for the tips, i never saw, but how do u like the treasure maps website?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

your welcome on the tips and yer that maps website was great thanks :D helped me find a few grottos i had put off because i didn't knoww where there locations were lol :)

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@Noah: In response to your suggested party setup (OMG you guys filled up this comments section fast. XD):

I use a Paladin instead of a second healer. Once a Paladin gets Kerplunk, he/she can use all of his/her MP and HP to revive his/her three companions if dead. It's saved me when Baramos gets overeager (Level 16 Baramos) and knocks out two of my characters in one turn. Besides, if the AI could talk, it'd be pretty peeved that it was close to wiping out the party and then be stuck nearly at square one again. :P

With that said, thinking about making my main a Priest for Omniheal, but still not sure yet. :)


Noah K-M 6 years ago

When does a paladin learn kerplunk, i have a level 30 ish paladin


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Level 46. :P

It's the last spell they learn actually, and Paladins are the only class that can use it.

To clarify my previous comment on its effect, the Paladin sacrifices him/herself (and his/her MP) to revive all allies. So, if you have a Sage, you're one Kazing away from a full party again. :D


Noah K-M 6 years ago

So, who should i get rid of? should i multi class my main dude in to paladin or should i keep him gladiator? i really like the combo though. Should i make my priest a paladin? Also when do sages learn kazing?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

going on what you guys are saying about party set ups i have a good party set up that hasn't failed for me yet :)

i have me level 99 warrior and 50 in every other vocation

another warrior

a priest

and a paladin

both my warriors and paladin have whipping boy to protect squishy priest and dieing friend lol :)

my priest has gritty ditty ability and also has 100 skill in virtue for more health and resiliance so he doesn't die in 1 - 2 hits

fight goes like this:

1. warriors and paladin falcon slash with uber falcon blades priest uses gritty ditty

2. warriora and paladin use falcon slash again with uber falcon blade priest uses gritty ditty

3. priest uses multithrust with spear, warriors and paladin use falcon slash with uber falcon blade fight won in 3 easy turns lol :)

(incase priest gets crit 2 times in a row or something silly everyone has whipping boy to protect him while he can use either omniheal to heal everyone or full heal on himself :) )


Deargdoom 6 years ago

and winterfate i know have baramos level 16, murdaw level 16, dhoulmagus level 1 and dragonlord level 7

im working on leveling them up after i have gotten like every item i can get at there levels lol :) but i am mainly going to go for maps before levels lol XD that's why dhoulmagus is still level 1 because he doesn't drop a map at any level of his existance xP :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@Noah: Sages learn Kazing at Level 45. Basically, to answer your first question, there are two publicly accepted strategies for beating down tough bosses:

Strategy 1: The one I use, which consists of a Paladin to tank, a healer (usually a Sage, but Priests are good for Omniheal), and a main damage dealer (usually a Warrior or Gladiator). In this strategy, your main character is usually stuck on Egg On duty, so his class doesn't matter much as long as it has good agility.

Strategy 2: BRUTE FORCE. This one is all about having 3 Gladiators brutalize bosses as fast as possible with a Priest using Omniheal. This one is risky but can get 2-3 turn kills. It's the faster of the two strategies.

So, essentially, you may come up with your own strategy, but those two are the ones that work for most people around the world. :)

Most important thing though is to have fun. As long as you're beating the bosses, it doesn't really matter how you're beating them does it? ;)

@Deargdoom: I got the Murdaw Map like at 5 AM today. :o

(So about 15 hours ago.)

I wrote up an article for him, so feel free to comment there as well now. :D

Level 1 Murdaw < Level 16 Baramos

But, I should've seen that coming, truth be told. :D


Noah K-M 6 years ago

Deargdoom, do u do anything other than dragonquest?? I want a sage and paladin, so should i can do the combo, so should i have a

gladiator(main dude)

paladin

sage

warrior


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Sure, that'll work pretty well. :)

The most important part of the tanking strategy are the Paladin and the healer. Who you deal damage with is less important. In fact, you could even go so far as to use Mages for damage dealing, but then you'd be relying on MP instead of weapons.


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Oh, and if you want to make your tank even better, get 100 in Fans on your Paladin so he/she can use Reverse Cycle (to reflect breath attacks).


Deargdoom 6 years ago

yer i do more than just play dragon quest lol :P and yer your party set up with:

gladiator

paladin

sage

warrior

and im changing my party set up for bosses lol im going to have my main as a gladiator on boss fights and warrior on the other floors so then if i find king metal slimes my special is a crit and on bosses my special will be tension boost :)

and gz winterfate XD ill be sure to check out your murdaw site lol :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

finally got dragonlord to level 16 and he is actually hard did a 700 crit on my 2nd warrior and left him with 12 health xP

hope psaro isn't this hard xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

woo hoo finally got psaro map :D just don't have a clue where the map location is lol xP


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@Deargdoom: Nice idea with the Warrior/Gladiator thing. :D

If you've ever played Dragon Quest IV...Psaro is one of the hardest end-game bosses in all of Dragon Quest. :P

At least he doesn't have seven forms like in DQIV.

It depends on which of the seven forms you'd be fighting. In most other games he's appeared, he's dual wielding swords. That's not THAT hard. His final form is brutal though. :/


Deargdoom 6 years ago

he appears as a 2 headed monster and i have still managed to kill him in 3 hits lol but i was going to ask does anyone know a way to stop yourself from dieing from whack?

like an item etc and i was wondering would lucky pendant work? :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

damn psaro is harder than i thought and he now has learnt whack lol xP really need something to stop that attack xP :P


Deargdoom 6 years ago

woo just got nimzo map from psaro :D


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Try Alma Mater from the Priest skill tree. If I'm not mistaken, it protects from instant death attacks.

Oh, his final form. I can see why it's so hard. :P

You're really racking up those maps. Soon you'll have all of them (except Zoma, since he's a Gamestop exclusive; you'd have to find someone who got him and Tag the map).


Noah K-M 6 years ago

Alma Mater does stop instant kills, its in the priest ability tree, i have a level 73 priest. Do u guys think i should level baramos to 2 or keep him the same?


Deargdoom 6 years ago

alma meter doesn't really work seen as it leaves you with1 health is whack hits and then you get attacked straight after so it sucks lol and zoma can be obtain through quest 167 or special event lol but every other legacy boss it says on iternet can only be obtained by tag or quests xP :( and i don't know any that i can tag :(


Deargdoom 6 years ago

and if all your team is level 60 + then i say level level level lol XD i feel a little hyper tonight for some reason lol XD


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@Noah: Chances are you're probably overleveled as it is. I would level him up a bit.

(However, get some Aliahan Boots off of him before he reaches Level 8, as his second drop changes to Aliahan Clothes at level 9 if I'm not mistaken. Same thing for the Clothes; get some of them before he reaches 16. Once he's level 16, he'll stop dropping Murdaw's Map at a 10% chance)

@Deargdoom: I noticed that. :P

Also, that's pretty sweet that there's a quest now for Zoma. It used to be event only. :/


Noah K-M 6 years ago

winterfate, thanks and where is the quest for zoma? i wanna get it


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

First of all, I meant "start dropping Murdaw's Map", not stop, in my previous comment. Sorry for that lol.

Second of all, judging by the high number Deargdoom gave, I assume you need a Wi-Fi connection and it's a downloadable quest. I don't have Wi-Fi at this time, so I can't confirm or deny this. :S

(Every quest after a certain number is download only, but the data is kept on their servers indefinitely so all you need to do is find a connection for one day and you'll get every quest that has been released for the game up to that week. :) )


Deargdoom 6 years ago

quest 166 and 167 is a Wi-Fi quest that should be relesaed on the 24th of deecember if my calculations are right :)

2 quests a week.

quests 146 and 147 will be out friday the 15th of october

so just keep adding 2 quests for every 7 days and then you know what date each quest is released xP XD

hehe im a brain box me lol XD


Deargdoom 6 years ago

woo finally got baramos, murdaw, dhoulmagus, dragonlord, psaro and nimzo to level 16 :D and now i am a little bored because i don't have much else to do in the game lol xP

o and winterfate do you mind me asking why you cant do the Wi-Fi quests? :) and quest 177 gives rusty armor and quest 178 gives rusty gauntlets as far as i know (been looking on google) and they can only be obtained through Wi-Fi xP

http://www.gameiplay.com/nintendo-ds-games-cheat-h...

thats a link i go on to check out quests :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

woo finally got baramos, murdaw, dhoulmagus, dragonlord, psaro and nimzo to level 16

forgot to add and all have been killed in 3 turns lol XD


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Oh it's simple really: I can't use my wireless connection to connect unless I get the Wi-Fi USB thingie for $20. :/


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ah xP do you mind me asking why your wireless connection doesn't work? :) (if you don't want to tell me i don't mind (sorry for being nosey) )


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Lol. No worries. XD

Well, I checked out some tutorials on the net and, to run Wi-Fi on an internet connection without the USB thingie requires a certain security setting on the connection. I can't change any of the security settings on the connection, so... :/

(Believe me I've looked at all the help files and stuff; I'll just get the USB device one of these days. :D).


Deargdoom 6 years ago

lol you should :)

o yer i got a great joke that's real listen to this:

i went to the hospital today to see a doctor who did an operation on me to get rid of 2 brain tumors (the opp was in febuary and we are now in october) and i have been having migranes ever since the opp tell him about these migranes and some lumps on my head where the tumors were and he says o yer i forgot to tell you that's where i had to put a plate and drill 6 screws into your head to attach your skull back together after the opp on the tumors and that might be why you are getting migranes

seriously don't you think that's a bit stupid doing an operation then 8 months later saying you get metal and screws in your head xP


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

He "forgot" to tell you for 8 months? XD

Wow, what if you had had some post-operation complication related to those plates or something? Sometimes I wonder how doctors get their licenses. You would think with all the effort to become a doctor they would be a little more careful.


Deargdoom 6 years ago

you think heh... xP

but the same doctor who did my tumors was on tv after he did an operation on a boy to help stop his seizures from happening xP

funny he seems to remember everything when he's on tv and in the highlight xP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

hey winterfate do you know how to work out that haomi table thing?.. :)


Deargdoom 6 years ago

does anyone know where/ how i can find weapons like gallaxy axe and supernova sword etc?


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

For the Hoimi table: http://www.woodus.com/den/games/dq9ds/hoimi_table....

As for those items: The Supernova Sword is a sub-ultimate weapon (Hypernova Sword is the ultimate weapon; you have a 10% chance to get one each time you craft a Supernova Sword; this is called an Alchemiracle and can be influenced with the Hoimi table). The Galaxy Axe is the ultimate axe.

I have no idea where the recipes for those weapons are though. Might want to look around Google. :P


Noah K-M 6 years ago

you guys have helped me a lot and im gonna be off hubpages for a while and ill still be playing DQIX XP


Deargdoom 6 years ago

thanks dude :D

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@Noah: That's what we're here for! :D

@Deargdoom: You're welcome! :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

winterfate how do you use that table on treasure chests and alchemy? all it says is how to do it on bosses


Deargdoom 6 years ago

winterfate you are a life saver :D if i could i would probably be hugging you right know that hoimi table has just got me glorious armor and its is the best armor like ever that i have managed to get :D


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

I'll assume you answered your own question... :P

Congrats! :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

thanks dude :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ok im really confused i used the hoimi table on a low level treasure chest and it worked but everytime i do it on a high level treasure chest it doesn't can anyone help me out?.. :(


Noah K-M 6 years ago

How do u use the hoimi table for chests????


Deargdoom 6 years ago

i just pretended that the chest was the boss so i did same thing but instead of fighting a boss you open the chest to get the item but i cant seem to get it to work on high level chests :(


Deargdoom 6 years ago

damn i just managed to get an alchemymiracle and managed to make a heavenly helm :D but i have a question is there a thing like the hoimi table to make it so the alchemymiracles happen everytime?.. :)


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Using the Hoimi table doesn't work? :o

The chance for an Alchemiracle is 10%. You have to figure out how you can get the table to land on a 10% square.


Deargdoom 6 years ago

in the game it said it was a 20% chance of alchemiracle and the hoimi table as far as i know only works on boss monsters


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Hmm, I thought the Table was an RNG exploit. If that's true, then it should apply to anything that drops an item, including alchemy.

I've never used the Hoimi Table, so I have no clue on how to use for Alchemiracles, but I've read that lots of people use it for that, so... :P


Deargdoom 6 years ago

ok thanks dude i'll try it and i haven't uased it on alchemiracles yet just bosses lol so i'll give it a try and thanks for everything :)


Noah K-M 6 years ago

i really suck at using the hamoi table, but im still trying


Deargdoom 6 years ago

dude that hoimi table is awesome i now have heavenly helm and legendary armour :D ( 2 alchemiracles) but i must say it has taken me 4 days to finally get the materials for both lol xP agates of evolution arent cheap even tho making money is easy in this game lol xP

and for people wondering:

Heavenly helm = A godly guard against confusion, illusion, poison and death (whack etc) and it gives 50 defence

Legendary armour = Unparalleted protection that mends HP and MP merely by moving about. and it gives 100 defence

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Woah! Way to go Deargdoom! :D

I just thought of something. Does Thief's coup de grace make Legacy Bosses Cough up rare items like maps? If it does, you should try it.


Deargdoom 6 years ago

it does work on bosses but i think it make rthem drop there rarest drop e.g legacy bosses = orbs etc but i do know if you use thief coup de grace on greygnarl he drops dragonlord map


Deargdoom 6 years ago

and when i say greygnarl i mean the greygnarl you find in a grotto post of the game and thanks winterfate ive almost got the mats for alchemiracle shield or the gauntlets just depeneds on what one i choose to make lol :)

shield = psyche swiper + 3 green orbs + 3 agates of evolution

(i got psyche swiper, 3 green orbs and 1 agate of evolution at the moment)

gauntlets = diana gauntlets + 3 red orbs + 3 agates of evolution

(i got diana gauntlets, 3 red orbs and 1 agate of evolution at the moment)

just got to choose which one i want to make more when i get the agates of evolution lol :)

hahaha you guys are talking about me like i'm some sort of uber player lol xP i just know where to get the items i need and know a few shortcuts as i call them in the game

o and i now have the alchemiracle soul sucker shield :D

Soul sucker = 40 defence, A superlative shield that brings a magical barrier into being. :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

now to upgrade my diana gauntlets to alchemiracle lol XD


Noah K--M 6 years ago

OMG, csn u list some alchemy items i could use, and what i can use to get alchamiracles, i have really bad gloves, and the sacrosanct armour. I really need new items, i have an erdricks shield and helmet, uber falcon blade, sacrosanct armour, aliahan boots, mighty armlet and gladiators mitts. HELP

I haven't actually played Dragon Quest IX much in a while (been writing about other games). My Murdaw is still Level 1. :P

I'll probably level up Murdaw once my party is in the 70's or 80's. :D


Deargdoom 6 years ago

lol i have all my legacy boss map bosses at level 16 and all are killed within 3 turns lol XD


Deargdoom 6 years ago

hey can anyone help me out with something?.. i know that you can get dragonlord claws from the dragon fair thing in dqvc shop and i was just wondering is it the same for the downgraded versions of moonmasher and galaxy axe?.. :) and if so what type of fair do they come under in the dqvc?.. :)


TGTASC 6 years ago

Hey Deargdoom earlier on here you said you can't find any1 who playz this game in England.Is this true?

Also do you think I could kill Baramos lv1 with these levels:

Minstrel:lv60

Warrior X3:lv62


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@TGTASC: I see what you did there with your party setup. :P

Well, 3 Warriors should be more than enough to power Baramos down, although you might want that Minstrel to be a Priest or Sage for the multi-character heals (Multiheal for both and Omniheal for Priests only). Let's just say I beat Baramos at level 1 with a level 40-ish party so, if anything, you're possibly overleveled. :)


TGTASC 6 years ago

@Winterfate

Yeah but none of my guys except my minstrel have levels in other vocations.

My minstrel is a lv12 priest as well.I got owned though from criticals


TGTASC 6 years ago

Also if you want to know my equipment and skills my guys have ask.You might find its not good enough.


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 6 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@TGTASC: Hmm, that does make it a bit harder. So, what equipment and skills are you using? :)

If all else fails, you're going to have to go grind levels at the Bowhole (Liquid Metal Slimes appear there rarely).

Gaining levels in other vocations lets you use the skill points towards the trees in your primary vocation, which is how I invested most of the extra points I got.


TGTASC 6 years ago

@Winterfate

My mistrel lv60 Equipment:

Erdick's sword

Brain drainer

Liquid metal helm

DQ9 Fan 6 years ago

Hey Winterfate I was just wondering what a reasonable turn time to beat Bramos is as I've said before I use a Gladiator(44), Paladin(53), Ranger(51) and Sage(39) team and I can beat Baramos in 12 turns using no items for MP regen, is this a reasonable turn time.

Also I'd like to know where to get other Legacy Boss maps


TGTASC 5 years ago

@DQ9 Fan

1.That is a good turn time for your team.

2.To get more legacy boss maps here are the ways:

1.Completing quests

2.Leveling up legacy bosses (e.g if you level Baramos up to lv16 and start beating him he will eventually cough up Murdaw's map.)

3.Defeating greygnarl in a grotto (this gets you a Dragonlord map eventually{then you have to lv him up to get another legacy boss map})


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

@DQ9 Fan:

For your current party setup, 12 turns is okay. :)

My record is 5 turns, but I can defeat Baramos with a Warrior with two Falcon Slashes at 50 Tension, maximized attack (via Double Up) and equipped with a Falcon Blade.

That sort of setup takes quite a few skill points, so don't sweat it. As long as you're beating him, it's all good. :)

Also, what TGTASC said. :D


DQ9 Fan 5 years ago

Thanks

and what about other Legacy maps where can I get them


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Well, TGTASC already told you some of them:

Baramos - You already have his map I would assume. :)

Murdaw - Beat Baramos at Level 16 or higher. Drop rate increases as Baramos' level increases.

Dragonlord - Beat Greygnarl until he drops it (5% chance).

Murdaw drops a map when he's level 16 or higher, but I have no idea what Legacy Boss it leads to. Generally, that trend of: "Beat Level 16 or higher boss to get the next map" happens a few more times.

There are a total of 12 Legacy Bosses if I recall correctly. :)

Darn I am still finding it immensely difficult to beat him.Any ideas for help?


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Ok, let's see:

- Have you been grabbing HP boosts from other skill trees? These account for a ridiculous amount of Hit Points when you start getting enough of them.

- Does your Paladin have 100 Fans, Reverse Cycle and Magic Mirror? That allows him/her to use Forbearance to shield the rest of the party from Baramos' mass attacks.

-Your Paladin should also be equipped with the Shield book that you get for completing the 100 Shield Quest over at Swinedimples Academy. This prevents him/her from being hit by critical hits.

If you do all the above, you'll win. :P

Also, I wrote up that article you requested. Feel free to check it out. I hope you enjoy. :)

1.Not Really

2.I don't have a paladin

3.I don't have a paladin

Also thanks read it


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

1) Then, get to it! They really help! :P

2) A non-Paladin works as well. I'd recommend a Warrior as the second best option.

3) Equip it on your tank. If you don't want a tank, then equip it on your healer. Your healer getting knocked out by a lucky critical is one of the worst things that can happen in a tough boss fight.

You're very much welcome. :D


TGTASC 5 years ago

@Winterfate

1.On it.

2.I have got a warrior but he is also a paldin I am leveling up him as a paladin

3.I have not got it yet.


TGTASC 5 years ago

YES!!!!!!!

I beat Baramos.YES!!!!

In 9 turns!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

TGTASC: Told you you could beat him. Now you can farm him for experience points. :)

Congrats! :D


TGTASC 5 years ago

Thanks :D

NO HEALER BESIDES MA MINSTREL :D

Getting 100 in Virtue really helped 2 pf my warriors out.

Also got the boots he drops

I would rather farm for mini medals

I used 2 Yggdrasil leafs.

100x harder than final battle corvus XD


TGTASC 5 years ago

@Winterfate

I would rather farm metal king slimes for experience >:D

Can you believe I haven't found any grottos with MKS yet? :/

(And I've cleared over 60 of them. :o)


TGTASC 5 years ago

@Winterfate

Unlucky mate.

I have found one grotto with metal king slimes and 2 grotto's with LMS.Also try Tower of Nod there are (though rarely) MKS's

Also I have these grotto's and have only cleared 24.I must be lucky :o


TGTASC 5 years ago

Found a 2nd grotto with MKS's


TGTASC 5 years ago

@Winterfate

What is the highest (normal) grotto boss you have defeated?Mine is Fowleye


TGTASC 5 years ago

YES!!!!

BEAT HIM IN 6 TURNS!!!!! :D

And nobody died :D

(well one nearly died he had 5 health left)

But still I can kill him without one person dying :D


TGTASC 5 years ago

Woly :O

I beat Baramos again and none of my people went below 250 health


TGTASC 5 years ago

Also you should add this up to his moves:

Physical attack then action skip.

He does that more than he criticals now XD.

Also magic mirror is the best ability to have in this battle.Deals an extra 250ish damage :D


TGTASC 5 years ago

Farming Baramos's Mini Medals now.But he now kills one person (usually my warrior Mark) then gets killed in the move after (Uber Falcon Blade Falcon Slash).Gonna get oriachulum from Cap'n Max Meddlin to get Erdicks helm


TGTASC 5 years ago

Spent ages doing a quest but finished it now.Gonna get Erdicks shield now.Just gotta get 4 more mini medals


TGTASC 5 years ago

Record time of 5 turns.Winterfate what is your record time for Baramos?


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

I've done it in 4, but that involves Baramos helping you out by hurting himself with reflected spells and breath attacks. :D

I've heard that 3 Gladiators and a Priest can do it in 3 turns. :o


TGTASC 5 years ago

@Winterfate:

We know it is possible to do it in 3 turns Deargdoom has.

I got it in 5 but I used magic mirror.

Also can I ask for all your guys weapons and armour.I want to see the difference in weapons and armour.I will post mine as well


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

TGTASC: Ah yes, I forgot about that (and was too lazy to re-read this comments section). :P

Hey winterfate do you know any way to get the 2% drop of a grotto boss easily.I want to get the hero's boots from Trauminator


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

TGTASC: Oh, I guess I'll post my full party info in my next article. :D

As for how to get the 2% drop of a boss easily, you could try the Hoimi Table. I've never used it, but it's proven to work in both the Japanese and English versions of the game:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/937281-dragon-quest...


TGTASC 5 years ago

Man you are...

Wait that Hoimi table thing the dude says to go to

http://dq9.bex.jp/test/hoimi.cgi

Doesn't work for me :(.

It says Error and then some blah di blah rubbish


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

http://www20.atpages.jp/dq9tools/hoimi.cgi

Of course that one is in Japanese as well, so you'll probably need to find a tutorial for it. :o


TGTASC 5 years ago

Thanks Winterfate.Got a way to do it.Now just gotta perfect it.Its confusing and hard :(


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

I see. That's the impression I got when I read up on it myself. :o

You're welcome. :D

amazin site mate. c'n u tell me if a slionheart has more exp than a p. king jewell


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Slionhearts give WAY less experience than Platinum King Jewels:

Slionheart: 6200 EXP

PKJ: 240000 EXP

That means, ironically, that Slionhearts give less experience than Liquid Metal Slimes, and are a lot rarer as well.

Thanks for the comment! :D


platinumkingjewell 5 years ago

cheers. i got a platinum king jewell using a co op de grace electro light along with 2 m king slimes. got 240000 exp shared among my party but as i heard slionhearts were the last slime... are they the green or yellow shogum lookalikes ?

thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!


platinumkingjewell 5 years ago

wanted 2 say how good your info is. dragon quest expert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1 more thing... does that blueish colour darkonium slime appear in dragon quest 9? i know:

darkonium slime,

jem slime and platinum king jewell but i swear i saw a blue one online.. cheers


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Slionhearts are the green Shogum lookalikes. :)

I can't say I've seen a blueish color Darkonium Slime though. I've been looking around the net and can't seem to find anything myself. :o

Thanks for the praise! :)


platinumkingjewell 5 years ago

hey winterfate i need your pro advice again. i got :

me- lv 53 paladin

nathan- lv 67 gladiator

lisa- lv 96 sage

but what vocation would u recommend i put raymond in ?

had a ranger 4 zing and moreheal and before that a luminary just 2 use kaswooshle but that is rubish!!

dunno the right vocation cause i have no idea about rangers attacking.. is it worth my time training him as a ranger just for more heal when my sages moreheal does the late 2oo ds. she also have kazing . + i have kerplunk spell. what 2 do??


platinumkingjewell 5 years ago

cheers! ok, now go 2 internet images and type in blue jem slime and look in the picture with millions of slimes ! it will have 1 but i guess it is from an old game or different family like the man o war in twyll cave in the aquatic family not the slime family.


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Rangers have the highest critical hit rate in the game, but I personally don't use them. With that said, if you want an extra healer and don't want a second Sage or a Priest, Rangers are probably the next best choice, precisely because of Moreheal.

My party is: Minstrel, Warrior, Paladin, Sage.

If you don't want another healer, you can try using another Gladiator. The more damage you do, the shorter boss battles become. :)

Hope this helps!

Well, I'm going to bed now. Feel free to write me up again if you need more help, and I'll try to answer as soon as possible (hopefully my internet connection won't get suspended; if I don't answer your comment in a few days, now you know why in advance)


platinumkingjewell 5 years ago

cool thanks !!!!!! u r amazin ! ok i will go for a new ranger as he is already level lv 11 and as a gladiator lv1 lol . so sad!!! 3 of my party members had prepared coup de grace against fowleye ! wanted co op de an was gonna electro light her into a metal slime lol .

suddenly my sage was primed for a coup de grace !!! yeah.

platinumkingjewell 5 years ago

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Platinumkingjewel: Oh wow, lots of questions:

The Mayazaki map? I'm sure the math is somewhere. The chances are extremely low though. Probably not as low as you wrote, but pretty low. Yes, it has a usual name.

Um, you might want to check the downloadable quests if you have access to Wi-Fi, as some of the pieces are gained there. It's currently 5:10PM of Jan 1, 2011 as I write this. :D

Aww shucks, well HubPages isn't MY site specifically. It's just where I write at. :)

I've looked woodus.com over as well, but haven't joined it. I haven't played DQ IX in a while. I really need to get the Dragonlord map, but I haven't found a grotto with Greygnarl yet. :/


platinumkingjewel 5 years ago

hey winterfate, d you know where the quest in zere rocks about the agate of evolution is unlocked ??? i have walked all around rocks and cannot find him lol. i swear he gives you a rusty shield and i am tryin to complete erdicks armour!!!!!! plus my sage equips etheral armour and i need magic mittens!!! were on earth do you get them?

P>S i become your fan!!!!


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Well, the Rusty Shield quest is Quest 49. Here's a little info on it:

http://www.gamespot.com/ds/rpg/dragonquestix/answe...

Try the northwest part of the area to see if you can find him.

As for the magic mittens, you can find those at the Gleeba armor shop. They cost 2400 Gold. :D

I'll fan you too. Thanks. :D


platinumkingjewel 5 years ago

cheers winterfate! now i can make etheral armour for my sage 100% !!! but it says that it deflects against spells, but it never does lol. can you help me with my books that i get for like 100 claw? I dunno who to use the gladiators book on, and the twocus pocus book on. thanks lots for that link u gave me!! i use gamespot forums all the time ! do you ?


platinumkingjewel 5 years ago

hey , winterfate, your VUST articles are ace!!!! P>S what is the difference between the ability dazzleflash and the spell dazzle?


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Hey, well you don't USE the books on someone, you just place it in his/her bag. Once the item is in the bag, he/she can use the ability the book gives. :)

As for the two Dazzle skills, I think they're equivalent. I've never used Dazzle, but if it's like older DQ games, then they both cause Blindness (or however the status is called in DQ). :)


platinumkingjewel 5 years ago

hey Winterfate,thanks! dunno if you use it but there is 1 more site i use other than your amazing hubpages site. its called gamespot forums and i wanted to tell you about it . it has great forums about games and is the 1 other site i use lol. have u heard of it?

gonna tell my friend about your site as he is another DQ maniak. hopefully he will be coming up soon! talk soon.

I usually check GameFAQs for walkthroughs and stuff. Don't really use the Gamestop forums though. :o

Well, you can find a Wi-Fi Hotspot in each and every McDonalds, if you have anywhere you live.

Also, you don't have to pay money for any of those quests; you get those for free as they're released. One new quest is released every week. :)

Gladiators have the most attack of every class. After that, I'm not sure who's second best.

metalslimecrazy 5 years ago

hey winterfate, im a really big fan who is platinumkingjewels friend. he told me about your ace site. can u give me some DQ tips?


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Well, what kind of tips do you want? :)

In a very general sense:

- You want to have a healer in your party at all times. Early game this means a Priest. Later on, you can switch to a Sage if you desire.

- Get Psyche Up on all of your characters as soon as possible. Careful use of Tension is the easiest way to defeat most bosses.

- Err on the side of caution. It's better to have too many healing items in your characters' bags than to have too few, and lose a tough fight because of that.

- The best places to level up are the Bowhole/Realm of the Might (before you finish the game) and Slime Hill/certain grottos (after you finish the game).

Um, I'm spent. That should help. If you need anything else, let me know. :)


metalslimecrazy 5 years ago

THANKS SO MUCH um i have 1 more question. and that's were is the best quest u can do ( hard ones )_

PKJ: Internet was out. Got a new connection today. Was a sad week last week. :(

But, I'm back now! :D

metalslimecrazy: Well, I've heard that the hardest slime to find is Slionheart, but the one that gives the most experience is the Platinum King Jewel, which is pretty hard to find as well.

To find harder grottos, you need to level up your party. The higher your party, the better the maps that will drop from grotto bosses. :)

"Items dropped:

Mini medal 84

Silver orb 6"

Now that is freaky

Also, congrats on beating Mortamor! :)

dark link: No, I mean Magic Mirror. :P

Magic Barrier is the spell that improves your party's magic resistance for a few turns. Magic Mirror is the Shield skill that reflects enemy spells for a few turns, like the spell Bounce.


Annoymous 5 years ago

It is possible to kill him alone by mastering sheild, fan and a vocation which uses buff/kabuff Sage is for me.

Use magic mirror,reverse cycle and kabuff and he will DIE. If you were wondering my Sage lvl is 88.


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

Annoymous: That is a valid point. :)

The only problem there is once Baramos learns Disruptive Wave. One action invalidates all of your buffing spells. :(

There's quite nothing like making Baramos kill himself though. :D


DQPlayer 5 years ago

Hey, you guys were talking about Baramos ownage in a certain amount of time?

I killed him in two turns. lol.

I had my old gladiator with 999 strength use psych up my main use egg on and my best friend joined me and used egg on too while my mage used sap. next turn my main used egg on on my gladiator, my friend used oomph on my gladiator, my mage used sap and my gladiator used falcon slash with uber flacon blade and one-shotted him.

LOL


Winterfate profile image

Winterfate 5 years ago from Puerto Rico Author

DQPlayer; :o

Well, that's about as fast as he can be beat, unless someone finds a way to beat him on the first turn. :P

(Which should be possible, but only if you and three other friends you know all have Tension Saver and a physical attack class like Gladiators or Martial Artists. You save up the Tension from a previous, easy battle and then go to Baramos).

ive defeated baramos easily and it really isn't as hard as you make it out; ive nveer had any1 faint, and whenever there close to i always heal cus im faster especially with accelerate and if not paladin stops them dying. The party im using is lv 55 priest, lv 55 gladiator, lv 50 paladin and lv 49 mage at lv 4 baramos and hes still easy to beat.


DQPlayer 5 years ago

@tzard

Dude, with those levels, try out Baramos lv.99.

No offense, but none of the Legacy Bosses are even strong at the 4th level. Once they've got Disruptive Wave and healing moves, your team would be dead in one turn, no offense.

@Winterfate

Where are you? I sent a comment on the Malroth one maybe a week ago, but you haven't answered! I miss you already...

P.S. Any DQ fans, check out LordRoto's channel on YouTube, he's really cool and he even takes requests!

platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

Hey its platinumkingjewel, user of this page for ages! You need some better classes. Try leveled up, here's what I used and beat first time!

Lv 99 Sage

Lv 99 Sage

Lv 78 Gladiator

Lv 99 Paladin.

I have levelled since then so when i battled him. my level was much more low, but try getting the twocus pocus abilaty from the supreme sage in gittingham palace, the supreme sage is by the bookcase in the gittinham palace and on his last quest, get the ability from him. Then put the book in your paladin and in battle make him use it on the two sages. As long as they have similaier agility, they should move one after the other and it will be Kazzammle x4 in a row, and it will build up until its damage x2! also, use some ability or spell to weakon his wound reppelness to magic.

As for the healer, just use your sages for a moreheal every so often. Another tactic is boost up your sages attack and spells, weakon baramos and then use your secons sage as a healer.

Check the weakness of your bosses online so that you know what would be better to use on them, fire, ice, purple darkness, wind, ect,ect. Keep your level up on your mage aswell, cause if there is an enemy weak to fire, then you can switch to your mage before the battle and you'll do more damage. For grottoes, use both sages and you'll get further. You can always use jacks knack to change vocation at the end of the grotto, if you have that ability. One more tip, use the magic hat or victorious armour, or its upgrade like i do glorious armour, so you can walk about the grotto casting spells in battles, and still regenerate the magic when walking. Cheers mate hope you win!

Lol, in the middle of your comment, you typed "weakon" instead of "weaken".

Like the "weakon beakon".

...

I've been playing this for too long.

omg WEAKON BEAKONS ARE SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ANNOYING... nOT TO MENTION THE BELISHA BEAKON - nO MISTAKES HERE! :)


Lord of the Sword 4 years ago

Actually... as I've already completed the main game and finished the post-game only quest "Follow that Fish!", I fly the Starflight to wherever I need to go.

So I don't really see any monsters other than at the places I go to (such as Bowhole and Gittingham Palace for the treasure chests).

Where are you in the game?

@pkj

Actually, since you're commenting in the Baramos hub, I'm guessing you already completed the main storyline.

metalslime guy 4 years ago

hi guys again ive been training hard and my guys are now lv 99 minstrel lv66 thief lv 65 warrior and my lv 64 priest i've got good stuff but i still cant beat baramos i am SSSSSOOOO @$%*&(* peeved but i'm doing well in my moster data but i cant find a bling badger PPLLLLLZZZZZZ help me


platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

hey soz i wernet here be4, i have bling badger, what you need to do is to go to a water grotto with a high level, example, platinum waterway of death. it should have a keyword like: chasm or waterway in the middle of the grotto name, this shows that it is a water grotto, and the higher the level, the better chance of finding a bling badger. so basically find a grotto called : something waterway/chasm of doom or something like that.


platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

so you should find a bling badger in:

emerald waterway of doom lv 89 , or

sappire chasm of ruin lv 78.

but remember it needs to be a fairly high, if not quite high level because they are high level monsters. if you find a bling badger, you should find on that very level, prime slime , mandrake monarch, boogie mangini to add to your monster list!!!


platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

hey go to a water grotto with the words "chasm" or "waterway" in the middle because they live in high level water grottoes maybe over lv 70 as a guess.


platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

@metalslimeguy

hi are you there i will tell you. they are found in water grottoes high level so go to a grotto with theword chasm or maybe waterway and on the lower floors , if it is high, like over lv70 maybe you should find them. they are golden.

example: emerald waterworld of ruin lv 75

sapphire chasm of death lv 95

hope u do it :)


Metalslime guy 4 years ago

Thank you friend I shall remember that I better check my maps and stuff. Oh and if you want to train tons and invite weakling friends over go into lv77 caverns and you'll find slugly betsey,king metal slimes and golden slime stacks! But king metal slimes will give you a ton of exp but you'll need an axe man or a spear man or a guy with claws to us thunder thrust (for spear men) flailing nails ( for a guy with claws) and I forgot the ability for axe men/women. So see ya :) :( :P:D:O


DQM Master 4 years ago

I tried beating Baramos with a level 99 Ministrel, Lv 77 Gladiator, Lv 84 Warrior, and a level 83 Warrior but still failed even though this was level 1. Does any of you know how much health he has and what his weaknesses are


platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

@Metalslimeguy,

thats cool! also to get platinumkingjewels - lol - go to ruins grottos cause that is were they are. they are the highesed experience in the whole game, more than MK slimes!!!! but also in the highesed grottoes ....... lol.

@ DMQ Master,

He is the weakest of the Legacy bosses but can kill you by using Kafrizz and Kaboom and can also use also fire breath and regular attacks (which can hit for about 100+ to everyone in your party, Can also Crit for 300+). Ice attacks are his weakness, but he resists wind and fire attacks. If someone in your party wields an axe, use a Helm Splitter, or a Sap spell These do no work on Baramos, Oomph the axe wielder, and use Parallax for a possibly 100 more points than a Kafrizzle. Also, you can beat him using paladin tank with magic mirror. Just don't forget to use insulate on him. let me check his lv 1 health... it should be on dragon quest wiki.com. lets see..... :))


T-Dro 4 years ago

platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

Julien Sillard 4 years ago

Hey guys. Here is a little info on how I kill Baramos.

My party:

Me: level 87 gladiator, weapon; miracle sword

Cpu1: level 83 gladiator, weapon; ├╝ber falcon blade

Cpu2: level 89 minstrel, weapon; falcon blade

Cpu3: level 41 sage, weapon; dragon slayer

My tactics:

Turn 1; glads use feel the burn, minstrel uses magic mirror, sage uses kabuff

Turn 2; glads use double up, minstrel heals or uses falcon slash, sage uses kabuff or heals

Turn 3; glads use falcon slash, minstrel uses falcon slash or heals, sage uses falcon slash or heals

Turn 4; glads use falcon slash, minstrel uses falcon slash or heals, sage uses falcon slash or heals.

-Baramos dies-

Hope this helped :)


Julien Sillard 4 years ago

hey guys. once again i have found other ways to kill baramos. they are also physical, like the last post :). the method:

TEAM:

ME: level 99 glad

CPU1: level 99 glad

CPU2: level 99 minstrel

CPU3: level 51 sage

NOTE: all equiptments are the same as before.

METHOD:

TURN 1: i use egg on, on CPU1

CPU1 uses feel the burn

CPU2 uses magic mirror

CPU3 uses kabuff

TURN 2: i use egg on, on CPU1

CPU1 uses double up

CPU2 uses falcon slash

CPU3 uses kabuff

TURN 3: i use egg on, on CPU1

CPU1 defends or uses falcon slash (tension must be at 100)

CPU2 uses falcon slash

CPU3 uses falcon slash or heals

TURN 4 (if you don't defeat baramos in turn 3): everybody uses falcon slash. -baramos dies-

TIP: you must keep on healing the team otherwise you will be wiped out quickly. i am currently battling baramos at level 9. the higher your level, the easier the battle is.


smalltimmy11 4 years ago

metalslimeguy 4 years ago

@smalltimmy11

i think you should try to use higher level guys and (if possible) use high power and defense gear try to focus on your guys strengths and weakenses inhancing them.

@platinumkingjewel

i found your relative darkonium slime and a monsterous octagoon oh and by the way which boss is after baramos and what is he called thanks


platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

@metalslimeguy- murdaw is your next boss after baramos!!! keep killing him- it took me 57 attempts to get his map but the higher his level, the higher the chance!!!!!

@smalltimmy11 - your people are too low leveled! find some metal slimes kings or liquids!

@julian sillard- good tactics- what other legacy bosses have you got?


Matalslimeguy 4 years ago

@ platinumkingjewel

Wow I've heard hard work is it's own reward but that is ridiculous I've been trying for about 20 something try's I'll try harder

@ smalltimmy11

platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

@metalslimeguy

metalslimeguy 4 years ago

@ platinumkingjewel

i found platinum king jewels and greygnarl and tyranosaurus wreaks and dragon lord i have 5 silver orbs but no red ones :( oh well i have quite the monster sightings but i hven't seen a blight knight what level grottos would i find one thanks


Some Guy 4 years ago

If you want to get higher levelled maps I suggest you do some revocating, 3 or 4 times if you want those really high level grottoes, it may take a while but it's worth it.


platinumkingjewel 4 years ago

ummm not exactly a certan level but definitly quite high - you should be in the 90's or if you are extreamley, really really lucky really high 80's - look out for grotto's ending in ;Doom Evil Ruin Death - they represent monster ranks. I have only seen them in ice grottos at the very bottom floors.
