Dragon Quest VI: Realms of revelation features a system whereby some monsters
in the game can be recruited to join your party.  For those who are familiar
with the Super famicom version of this game, you will notice that the
recruitment system has been completely overhauled in this version.  It is also
completely disimilar from the way recruitment worked in Dragon Quest 5: Hand of
the Heavenly Bride.

This guide is intended to help you understand which monsters can be recruited 
and what steps need to be taken in order to faciliate their recruitment. You
will also learn some useful information about the traits of each monster (i.e.
the spells, abilities, equipment, resistences etc.). You may even find some
tips that will help you recruit these monsters earlier.

This guide contains some minor spoilers about plot events that must happen
before each monster can be recruited.  If you do not want to risk reading these
spoilers then you should stop here.

1) HOW DO I RECRUIT MONSTERS?

For those familiar with how monster recruitment worked in Dragon Quest 5, you
must forget everything you know.  This doesn't work the same way at all.  If
you are familiar with how monster recruitment worked in the Super Famicom
version of Dragon Quest 6, I'm afraid it doesn't work like that either.

So how does it work? It's actually quite simple.  As you progress the story,
you will encounter monsters outside of battle.  Some of these monsters will
just join you as soon as you talk to them.  For other monsters, you have to
earn it a bit by satisying a set of requirements first.  Once you have
satisfied the prerequisite tasks, the monsters will join you when you ask them
to.

It's that simple! No expensive sirloins or low probability rates to worry about
here! Just do some stuff and then talk to the monsters you want.  For more
details on the specific requirements for each monster, please see the
RECRUITABLE MONSTER LIST / DETAILS section.


2) WHEN CAN I START TO RECRUIT MONSTERS?

You will encounter the first monster you can recruit in Howcastle.  Prior to
that, you will have to make do with regular old human characters.  Oh come on,
they're not that bad!


3) IS IT TRUE THAT ONLY SLIMES CAN BE RECRUITED?

No, there is one exception.  You can also recruit a dragon.  It's a Hacksaurus
that goes by the name Lizzie.  Other than that, only slimes are available.


4) IS MONSTER RECRUITMENT NECESSARY IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THIS GAME?

No.  You can make it through this game and defeat the final boss without
recruiting a single monster.  There are side-quests however, that do require
monster recruitment.  These include The Best-Dressed Contest and the arena at
Slimopolis. If you want to fully complete everything in this game, you will
need to make some monster friends.  Don't worry, they won't bite.


5) WHAT IS THE MONSTER MASTER CLASS USED FOR?

The Monster Master class is not affiliated with monster recruitment in this
game. It is simply a beginner level class that is a pre-requisite for the
intermediate Ranger class.  This is different from the Super Famicom version of
the game where the Monster Master class was used for monster recruitment.


6) DO I NEED TO USE "TAG MODE" TO OBTAIN ANY OF THE MONSTERS?

No. Although it is not a requirement, Tag Mode can get you access to the
Cureslime, Shell Slime and Liquid Metal Slime monsters prior to completing the
game.  If you have 10 Dreamcards via Tag Mode, then you can access the
Cureslime and Shell Slime monsters. If you have 20 Dreamcards, you can access
the Liquid Metal Slime monster.  Note that these three monsters can still be
obtained without Tag Mode, but you have to wait longer in that case.


7) CAN I STILL RECRUIT MONSTERS WHEN MY WAGON IS FULL?

Yes you can.  They will run off to see Patty the Party Planner if the wagon is
full.


8) WHERE CAN I DROP OFF / PICK UP MONSTERS THAT DON'T FIT IN MY WAGON?

Once you have the wagon you can bring a total of 8 people along on your
adventure (including the hero).  If you are running out of room in your wagon,
you must drop off extra party members at Patty's Party Planning Place.  You can
find these in numerous locations around the world, beginning with Port Haven.
Note that Patty can accommodate both humans and monsters.  She doesn't
discriminate like she did in Dragon Quest 5: Hand of the Heavenly Bride.


9) DO MONSTERS STILL GAIN EXPERIENCE WHEN I LEAVE THEM WITH PATTY?

No, they do not.  As such, any party members left with Patty will begin to fall
behind the others in terms of character levels and class levels.  Choose who to
bring with you wisely.  


10) WHICH MONSTERS ARE THE BEST TO RECRUIT?

Each monster has it's own set of unique traits that may make it an asset when
combined with your other party members in combat.  While some monsters seem to
have advantages over others, most of the better monsters are obtained later in
the game and will require extra leveling to bring them up to speed.  For
specific details on why some monsters may be better than others, consult the 
RECRUITABLE MONSTER LIST / DETAILS section.  Also, I have done a bit of a more
direct comparison in the MONSTER RANKINGS section.


11) I DON'T LIKE MY MONSTER'S NAME! CAN I CHANGE IT?

Yes, you can.  In fact, you can change the name of any party member once you
have obtained the Mermaid Harp.  The servant of the God of Names can be found
under the sea just outside the village of Ghent.  


12) HOW MANY MONSTERS CAN I TAKE WITH ME WHILE ADVENTURING?

Once you have the wagon, you can have 8 party members at any time.  Additional
party members must be dropped off at Patty's Party Planning Place.  You can't
drop off the Hero or Ashlynn though, so that means you can have 6 monsters with
you at most. There's nothing to stop you from leaving the Hero and Ashlynn in
the wagon though, so feel free to toss them aside and travel around with a pack
of monsters if that's what you want to do.

[08] Shell Slime: Shelley

Requirements:
- Have the Mermaid harp
- Have the Cureslime in your active party


Instructions:  
The Shell Slime is found in numerous places around the world throughout the
game.  The first time you probably encountered him is in the well in the Dream
World version of Weaver's Peak at the start of the game.  Every time you meet
him, he  will tell you that he is an evil Shell Slime and that he is looking
for his friend Curie.

He eventually settles down in the underwater Inn that is just north of the
fashion smith's well at the south-central extreme of the real world map.  If
you don't have the Cureslime in your party, he will just say that he is looking
for his friend Curie.  If you bring Curie to see him, the Shell Slime will join
your party.

[09] Liquid Metal Slime: Mercury

BEFORE COMPLETING THE GAME:

Requirements:
- Have the flying bed
- Found the Suite Dreams Manor
- Have set up your outgoing Dreamcard
- Have received 20 unique Dreamcards (via Tag Mode)


AFTER COMPLETING THE GAME (Starred Save File):

Requirements:
- Playing on a starred save file


Instructions:  
Once you have satisfied either set of requirements above, the curtains at the
back of the Suite Dreams Manor will be opened to reveal a door that leads out
the back lane. If you continue along the path out the back of the house, you
will enter an area that is identical to the area where you caught the horse
(Peggy Sue) earlier in the game.  You will see a Liquid Metal Slime in the
area, and if you try to catch him, he will run away. You must team up with
another guy who also seems to be after the elusive Liquid Metal Slime.
Together, you will trap the Liquid Metal Slime in the northern part of the
forest.  When the man goes to capture the LMS, he will mention that it seems to
have taken a liking to you and will concede that you should be the one to have
him.  In exchange for his generosity, the man claims the right to name your
Liquid Metal Slime and as such, calls him Mercury.

In this section, we discuss which monsters are best with respect to a number of
criteria including stats, resistances, leveling rate, skill sets, and
acquisition difficulty.  After the comparisons, a qualitative statement will be
made about which monsters are the "best" in this author's opinion


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Stat Rankings:

HP:
1) Lv 99 Hacksaurus    --> 950
2) Lv 99 King Slime    --> 850
3) Lv 99 Mottle Slime  --> 770

Comments: The Hacksaurus is clearly dominant in this category with a max HP 
          stat that is 100 points higher than the next closest monster.  


MP:
1) Lv 99 King Slime --> 900
2) Lv 99 Healslime  --> 800
3) Lv 99 Cureslime  --> 680

Comments: King Slime takes the top rank here, but it's definitely worth noting
          that Healslime and Cureslime have very respectable MP stats and are
          the only two party members in the game that learn Omniheal.  This
          often makes them an asset when facing late game bosses.


Strength:
1) Lv 99 Hacksaurus    --> STR = 410
2) Lv 99 King Slime    --> STR = 360
3) Lv 99 MottleSslime  --> STR = 340

Comments: Hacksaurus is a clear winner here with 50 more strength points than
          the next closest monster.  Although Mottle Slime takes third place,
          a regular slime comes close with a maximum strength of 330 at Lv 99.


Agility:
1) Lv 16 Liquid Metal Slime --> AGL = 500
2) Lv 99 Slime              --> AGL = 300
3) Lv 99 Cureslime          --> AGL = 300

Comments: The Liquid Metal slime get moderate agility growth as it approaches
          level 12.  Once you get past that threshold, the agility skyrockets
          with each level up.  Slime and Cureslime tie for second place and
          the next closest monster (Slime Knight) only has 250 max agility.


Resilience:
1) Lv 1 Liquid Metal Slime  --> RES = 500
2) Lv 99 Shell Slime        --> RES = 350
3) Lv 99 Hacksaurus         --> RES = 250

Comments: Liquid Metal Slime has the best resilience right from level 1.  This
          stat does not increase beyond 500, even when the LMS is increased to
          the max level of 16.

          The Shell Slime has remarkably good resilience, even at lower levels.
          A level 40 Shell Slime has more resilience than a level 99
          Hacksaurus.  Not too shabby.


Wisdom:
1) Lv 99 Hacksaurus   --> 300
2) Lv 99 King Slime   --> 300
3) Lv 99 Slime Knight --> 240

Comments: Hacksaurus and King Slime have a higher wisdom stat at level 63 than
          the next leading competitor (Slime Knight) at level 99.  


Style:
1) Lv 60 Slime              --> 130
2) Lv 99 Hacksaurus         --> 100
3) Lv 16 Liquid Metal Slime --> 090

Comments: The simple slime is clearly the monster with the greatest inner
          beauty.  This can be useful when competing in the fashion show.  This
          adorable little creature reaches its ultimate style stat at only
          level 60.  

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Resistance Rankings:

1) Liquid Metal Slime 
- fully resistant to all spells and breath attacks

2) King Slime 
- Good resistance to most spells and breath attacks
- Not resistant to Woosh and Zap spells

3) Hacksaurus
- Good overall resistance
- Fully resistant to Woosh spells
- Not resistant to Crack and Zap spells or blizzard breath attacks


Comments: Slime Knight came very close to Hacksaurus, but was slightly less
          resistant overall.  The biggest weakness of Slime Knight is the lack
          of resistance to any breath attacks.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Leveling Rate Rankings:

1) Mottle Slime
2) Slime
3) Hacksaurus

Comments: Each monster's growth rate typically changes during the course of
          leveling.  Some monsters level quicker at low levels and then slow
          down as you get higher.  Other monsters start slow and then
          accelerate at the higher levels.

          The Mottle Slime, Slime and Slimeknight are among the fastest
          monsters to level up at the earlier levels (1 - 50) and also reach
          level 99 with the lowest amount of experience required. Despite this
          fact, the Hacksaurus edges out the Slime Knight for third place due
          to its rapid leveling rate at higher levels (50+).

          It's worth mentioning that the Liquid Metal Slime reaches its max
          level with less experience required than any other monster.  In spite
          of that, it still levels slowly overall, since it spreads out all the
          experience over 16 levels.  

          It's also useful to know that, although the Hacksaurus levels slowly
          at first, her leveling rate is actually far superior to the Slime
          Knight from level 50 right up until level 97.  Above level 97, the
          Slime Knight's leveling curve finally comes back down below the
          Hacksaurus'. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Skill Set Ranking:

1) Healslime
2) Cureslime
3) Liquid Metal Slime

Comments: Due to the class system in this game, all characters have access to
          nearly all of the skills and spells.  Despite this fact, one skill is
          exclusive to monster characters: Omniheal.

          The only characters who can learn Omniheal in this game are the
          Healslime and the Cureslime.  In this case, the Healslime was ranked
          higher since it learns Omniheal at level 23 (whereas Cureslime learns
          it at level 50).  Also, the Healslime is available earlier in the
          game.

          The Liquid Metal Slime is listed because it has access to some of the
          rarer skills in the game.  Namely, Magic Burst and Big Bang.

          Although Ashlynn learns Magic Burst through the course of the game,
          the only way others can access these skills is by advancing in the
          Liquid Metal Slime class.  Since this class is very rare, it is handy
          that the Liquid Metal Slime is able to learn them.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aquisition Difficulty Rankings:

1) Slime Knight
2) Healslime
3) Mottle Slime

Comments: The Slime Knight, Healslime and Mottle Slime monsters have the fewest
          requirements out of all the monsters and are the first that you are
          able to acquire.  If you simply play the game and keep an eye out for
          this trio, you will be able to acquire them as soon as it is possible
          to do so.

          If you have the ability to connect with 10 or 20 other players via
          local wireless in "Tag Mode", you could potentially get the Cureslime
          Shell Slime and Liquid Metal Slime monsters as soon as you get the
          flying bed.  In that case, you would have them earlier than the
          Mottle Slime, but it is arguably quite difficult for most people to
          get enough Dreamcards to enable this.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Overall Monster Rankings:

I want to reiterate that the overall rankings provided next are the subjective
opinions of this author.  You should find the best monsters that suit your
party and your playing style by using the information provided in the preceding
sections of this guide.

1) Slime Knight
2) Healslime
3) Hacksaurus
4) King Slime

Comments: The Slime Knight is your perfect "all-rounder".  Although it
          consistently falls short of the top 3 in most of the above rankings,
          it is usually not far out.  The biggest advantage of the Slime Knight
          is how early you get it in the game.  There is much more opportunity
          to advance the Slime Knight in levels and classes by the time you
          have the chance to use some of the other monsters you will acquire.

          Healslime is acquired early on and learns Omniheal at a low level. 
          This can be a good monster to have in your second line since you can
          toss it in to cast Omniheal and then switch it back out. It also has
          an average leveling rate and good resistances.

          The Hacksaurus is just a beast in terms of stats and resistances. 
          She's easy to obtain, but you don't get her until later in the game.
          Hacksaurus is well suited to late-game and post-game play, but she
          will require some investment to bring her up to speed with the rest
          of your team.

          King Slime has some of the best stats and good resistances across the
          board. You pay for this with one of the slowest leveling rates
          though.  Depending on how much emphasis you want to put on fashion,
          it can be a bit difficult to obtain since you need to win rank 7 of
          The Best-Dresser Contest.

Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation features a rich cast of human characters
that will accompany you on your quest.  By the end of the game, if you keep all
of the human party members with you, there will only be room for one monster.

As much as I love the recruitable monsters, the party chat feature is most 
interesting with the human party members. Additionally many of the monsters who
can join your party, do so fairly late in the game.  This can make it a chore
to level them up and train them in useful classes.

During my playthrough, I kept a full party of human characters and added the
Slime Knight for the final spot.  Since the Slime Knight is the first monster
you can recruit, he gains the significant advantage of time which is used to
increase character levels and class levels.  He is also well suited to compete
in the Slimopolis Arena and to participate in the one round of The Best-Dresser
Contest that requires monster contestants.

I suggest placing a lower emphasis on training monsters in this game than you
might have had in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride.  It's certainly
fun to try to collect them all, but it will really slow you down if you want to
train them all too.  It can be a fun way to mix things up in the post-game
though!
