But yes, its opening scene is one of the most shocking and powerful of any game of that era. Right from the get-go, DQII isn't messing around.


It gave me Final Fantasy IV vibes, which I think has one of the strongest openings of any RPG

I am partially acquainted with the story since I recently beat Dragon Quest Builders 2, though of course for spoiler reasons that was completely different

Wait til you see the final dungeon.

In DQ2 it seems the Prince of Cannock is Thomas and Princess of Moonbrooke is Fleurette

I think they're based on your name.
Fun fact: DC Comics is short for Detective Conan Comics.

I did notice how Fleurette was the girl from Dragon Quest Swords

Thomas just seems like a generic name though

Just started Dragon Quest II, and have traveled back and forth to a couple of places so far

First scene was in Moonbrooke, then a guard went from Moonbrooke to Midenhall

As I set on my journey, I went from Midenhall to a small town called Leftwyne, to Cannock

From Cannock I traveled to the Wellspring of the Hero, where I was told Tonny left for Midenhall

I traveled back to Cannock to heal up and save, then back to Midenhall, and I am told he is back in Cannock

I am told he isn't in Cannock either, so I decided to go to Leftwyne to get better equipment, and I find him in the Inn, decide to equip him, and leave to Cannock to save

I guess now I travel west from Cannock and try to reach Princesa in Moonbrooke

Decided to go the Lake Cave in the far west, ended up dying at the end, but not before getting the Silver Key

Used it to play some Tombola in Leftwyne, ended up with a Banishing Bell

Went west of Cannock to Gwaelin's Gate and reached Moonahan

Reached Moonbrooke and was told that Princesa turned to a dog and I need the Ra's Mirror to break the curse

So I traveled to the swamp, broke the curse, and am no heading East

Since the slots are exactly the same every time you play it, I actually spent time resetting the game and playing Tombola repeatedly just so I could get the timing right for the best prize. Those 25% shop discounts from the Loyalty Card make a pretty dang noticeable difference. Especially with the expensive equipment.

Not recommended for just anybody though. Definitely need patience. And to be able to recognize those fast moving slot reels to know just when to stop them. And need to actually have good timing when pressing the button so it will actually stop where you want it.

Banishing Bells are useful. Status Ailments in DQ in general can be extremely deadly, so an accessory that helps mitigate their chances of landing is very welcome. You probably remember from last time you played DQ2, but they do become available to buy later. In the town where you get the ship.

I know this playing DQ1, when faced with Dhrols, Chimaeras and even some Knights and Skeletons, that would Snooze and even kill me, just because I forgot to use Fizzle first

The final boss of the original version could fully heal himself.

I think they make reference to that in Dragon Quest Heroes 2
