If it's a high area, I'd expect you'd need to be able to fly, as per almost every other Dragon Quest game. (I just finished the Alltrades Abbey, so I don't know.) --- *Casts Doom on everything* You all must now feel the pain that I have felt...DIE!
Sounds like a great deal of this game IS post-game. Wonder why? Seems like you could just incorporate all that into the main game.
I struggle with motivation for post-game content, even in Dragon Quest. There's just no... point in going on. Kinda like the entirety of the MMORPG genre, IMO.
Now I DID do the DQ4 post-content, but it actually altered the game's ending quite a bit, so that was the carrot I needed. Super-levelling my characters for no clear objective other than to level them isn't rewarding, IMO. --- NO FANBOY ZONE Most Wanted 2010: Dragon Quest VI-Valkyria Chronicles 2-Fable III-TDU2-Batman AA2-Atelier Rorona-AR Tonelico III-Blazing Souls Accelate-CoD7:BO
the earliest metal slimes are in a place called the Quarentomb.
as for the point of the post game, it is to explore and defeat the Legacy Bosses. Unlike 99.9% of games with post game content, this game actually provides continuous challenges, as the Legacy Bosses can level up many times, to the point where they are a challenge for a party of all level 99 characters... I don't know about you, but that challenge sound like enough reason for me to keep playing.
So many games have post-game content which is truly pointless, because there is nothing to use all the cool gear/abilities you get from the post-game content on. Not DQIX! --- Romancing SaGa Quests Completed / playing: Jamil, Aisha, Albert, Claudia.............../ Barbara
... bosses from previous DQ games? That alone makes it highly tempting... plus with all the outfits from DQ characters... that's awesome fan service, lol! --- NO FANBOY ZONE Most Wanted 2010: Dragon Quest VI-Valkyria Chronicles 2-Fable III-TDU2-Batman AA2-Atelier Rorona-AR Tonelico III-Blazing Souls Accelate-CoD7:BO
