Replying to a previous post, the game will not save once you reach level 30. So if you're grinding, be sure to plan out your approach. Use Gwaelin's Love to check while in the field.

If you're playing on Hardcore, definitely tackle the Death Necklace once you hit level 7 or 8. I did it just now, and in the process, gained 5 levels and 15k gold, haha. Cuts into some of the later grinding at least.

I remember one vacation where we went to the beach and took the NES. One day it rained and we took turns playing this and Zelda. Thanks for the set!

My first mastered game! I was playing with Choppasmith's re-translation but I'm pretty sure it was just a script tweak. I've played the original english release, the SNES, Mobile, and Switch ports too. Really want to do the Gameboy one sometime. Now if I was only a bad enough dude to do DQ2 for NES...

A fun, easy mastery! ... Except for that f***in Death Necklace! Ugh!!!... That aside, fast forward is your best friend for this set

Mastered. Sure is great to finally play one of the founding fathers of the modern JRPG genre.

First time ever playing it. 12h to master using FF. Thanks for the awesome set!

Mastered! The death necklace trophy is by far the most monotonous trophy in the set. I actually took a screenshot to commemorate finding it because I'll never be looking for it again :)

Mastered. Not age well, but it was intresting old-school expirience.

Honestly if you want a better experience play the GBC remake, it basically makes a 10 hour slog into a 5 hour experience. Still long but not nearly as bad as this slow grind.

Damn I got really lucky with finding the death necklace, only took me like 4 resets. Just completed the set, as someone who's never played a Dragon Quest game before this game for the most part actually holds up pretty well and I enjoyed my time playing it overall, will check out the ports/remakes at some point. @Kinglink To be honest I had more of a problem with progressing the story than the grinding (finding that cellar and the token are complete BS) since battles are generally quick and you can just hold the button to auto-battle

I don't think you need to reset for the cursed items. Just exit the dungeon and entire it again. I even cast outside and then returned. At least that is what I had to do with the death necklace I think. Also a hint is to just ignore the princess completely until you beat the game (then you have a save ready to deal with her.)

Yes - For Dragon Warrior 1, you only have to leave and reenter a dungeon, and it'll respawn the chest. This is also how you can reclaim one of a kind items. (i.e. If you accidentally get rid of Edrick's Sword, it'll be in the chest again.)
