So I got this game after making a topic on this board and recommendations from other posters that this game is definitely better than Bravely Second but now I play up to the point where I could get the DLC but everytime it gives me an error?

Any way to fix/solve this?

Thanks.

The DQ games have time specific DLC unfortunately. Once they distribute it a few times, it gets shut off. I believe most of the DLC in DQ8 was just special weapons and didn't actually contribute to the gameplay as far as the storyline goes.

I heard DQ7's DLC is still there permanently but I'm not 100% sure though. Will there be a chance the special weapons/DLC come back for DQ8 in the near future? The game isn't that old to discontinue DLCs...

DQ7 had some story DLC that’s there permanently, but the optional ones have been long gone. The DLC hasn’t come back out in the past once it goes bye bye but who knows they may decide to do a dump one day.

All the DQVII tablet DLC is available, after it cycled through it all they made it all available.
Connect online and you can choose whatever of the 60ish tablets you want to download.

Not sure why they don't cycle through DQVIII's again.

There is nothing more f***ng stupid than Time limited DLC.

Nintendo should make it a condition developing for their systems. “All DLC paid or free is either up until the servers go down or not at all”

It's an incentive to get the game at launch instead buying it later used or after a price drop.

They're all available to download now.
Unless you mean increasing the cap of tablets you can hold, cause 24 or w/e it is isn't cutting it.
Granted, most are meant to be a one and done, recruit everything you can, fight the boss for the drop, and toss the tablet.
