Got the necklace my second time visiting the cave. Sounds like I got pretty lucky.
Rine 14 Mar 2024 12:33
Mastered, thanks for the set!
crrool 21 Mar 2024 23:19
Mastery #113! That really wasn't too bad. It helped that I had someone with me who knew the game and could help me when I didn't know where to go next. Also got quite lucky getting the Death Necklace on the 4th try. Fun set. Simple, lots of grinding, but had a lot of fun all the same.
Kchlangenddin 24 Mar 2024 14:23
Can this be mastered in a single run?
Xelrog 24 Mar 2024 14:25
Yes, but you'll have to hold off on saving the princess and go to the final boss a few times to get the different missable endings.
TrippyHippie 25 Mar 2024 01:24
Mastered! First game 100% on hardcore, and the game that started my love for RPGS. Thanks to Author: SirVG for making this set. ✌️
NameDotTXT 30 Mar 2024 15:20
First Mastered game of mine. Pog.
Rynnji 31 Mar 2024 04:46
Mastered! Thank you for the set and have fun!
tillyvick14 6 Apr 2024 04:36
Mastered without using fast forward…. Boy am I tired. Thank you for the set!
TrashGang 6 Apr 2024 19:48
I haven't even played this game, but the achievement names are absolute GOLD. I wish every set had names half as good as these!
Nostromo82 9 Apr 2024 16:31
Mastered!

Thank you for the set.
MitsukeZ 22 Apr 2024 22:20
Mastered! First time i play a DQ Game and first time i master a set here, thank you for making this set, was really enjoyable !
WokeWendy 23 Apr 2024 12:04
Grind city over here. Level 23 and only halfway to 30. Fun set but the game is an absolute grindfest. I’ve only beaten the gbc port in the past and I remember it being a lot easier but I guess we’ll see.
QuoteXIII 25 Apr 2024 18:21
mastered! thats my first mastered set ever! :D

This one was really fun and I chose it as my first because the game is pretty short so I thought it'd be manageable...

This was a great set, and I loved the names!
ShamanicAlchemy 8 May 2024 18:50
working on this set for my first Mastery attempt and loving it! i thought i messed up because my wifi had dropped right before getting the fighters ring. im using batocera and apparently if you exit the game back to game selection it considers you "closing the app" and that achievement does not get uploaded. lucky for me i found out that the Mountain Cave chests all respawn every time you enter. Went back in and got my 2nd fighters ring and finally got the cheevo to unlock! im going to need to look up exactly what to do at the end to get the 3 missables
YodaSan2 12 May 2024 09:04
Mastered! Fun, but woo boy, that grind was something else. I understand DQ was one of the first console RPGs but holy hell, the map is tiny and the vast majority of the game is leveling so you can beat the one dungeon the game has. All in all, cute and quaint little RPG and can't wait to tackle the rest of the franchise.
GreedFeed 13 May 2024 16:33
Have always loved the mobile port of these games so I figured I owed it to myself to give the original version a try. I have to say, I still enjoy the mobile port a lot more (what can I say? I'm a filthy casual). However this is a great set of obtainable achievements and I really enjoyed mastering them (except the level 30 one... that was just PURE grind). Thanks for creating this.

Mastered!
FayeFaye 16 May 2024 22:04
Mastered! Again! Over 30 years later and still remembered most of it. Don't rescue Princess Gwaelin until you're ready to fight the Dragonlord to get the 3 missables..
