What's your best Dragon Quest 9 team?


#187 Jul 29, 2013
Any good team in any game is a fast attacker (for example thief or martial artist)a heavy hitter(gladiator or paladin) a healer (priest or sage) a magic attacker(mage or sage) and I just convert that into all my games.
In this game thief is good because it can back up a healer.

oh, and please help what is the best weapon type?

If you havent allready its a good idea to either use save editor, DQVC or Action Replay to unlock the extra game quests, admitedly it does involve a bit of grotto hunting but provides new bosses and hints as to where the quest can be found along with wether it advances into a story. DQVC is the most reliable way to get it and in some cases is even needed to complete some quests.
The storylines that advance because of this are:
;Stornway and Brigadoom
;Searna's death
;Coffinwell and the Gittish Empire
;The Quarters Rest
;Aquila's betrayal
;The Starflight Express
Tell me if I missed anything but this is well worth investing your time in for a more entertaining and satisfactory post-game.(Able to recruit Patty, Sellma, Erinn, Aquila and some others into your team!)

In my team I have:
PJ1897(Hero)-Lv. 52 Minstril (Fourse/Sword/Liethness/Aqusis tiveness)- Planning on chaning to Paladin or armamentalist and possibly Lumimary if theyre any good.
Silver-Lv. 50 Priest (Staves/Faith/Spellcraft/Aqusi tiveness/Guts)- Planning on making a sage, also holds Ministrels manual.
Scarlet-Lv. 52 Theif (Claws/Aqusitiveness/Guts)- Usually attacks first and with Harclaw can get about 200 damage if Priest has used gritty ditty.
Forest-Lv.Warrior (Spear/Paldin tree/ Warrior Tree) Completely forgot the name but Forest is my tank.

Paladin deal good damage and helps heal party and also forbearance
Mage deals heavy magical attacks and can use cadecus (idk spelling) to also help heal
Priest multi-omniheal and can multi thrust and thunder thrust for great damage
So they are all independent can heal and can do lots of damage if you bring out their skills and give good weapons and equipment

gladiator- 100 sword + uber falcon blade and gladiator scroll and 100 in shield and 100 in guts
gladiator2- ranger scroll 100 sword and shield 100 in guts and an uber falcon blade or just the falcon blade if you cant get the second meteorite bracelet and then the priest
Priest- 100 shield 100in the bottom spec for priests 100 for the bottom of the sage and 100 in the wand this team will kick the ass out of anything if you use it right.(For legacy bosses changge thepaladin to a gladiator with all of the above for gladiator stuff

This is only the second game in my life that I have crossed the 100 hour mark on; and now I have surpassed 140 hours (with 72 hours of multiplayer). I must say the game is truly fantastic, one of the best overall DS experiences I have ever had. This is one of four games on the DS that I just have to recommend - the others being Dragon Quest 5, Chrono Trigger, and Phoenix Wright 3: Trials and Tribulations (although, play the other two for background story). Other great games that I would recommend are The World Ends With You, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney, Dragon Quest 4, Rune Factory 2, Mario Kart, Pokemon Platnum (my first Pokemon game, and I must say I was impressed, it wasn't at all what I thought it would be), and the Professor Layton games. Dragon Quest 9 just stands up there with the best of this generation. If a cross between Dragon Quest 5 and Dragon Quest 9 existed, it would be the best RPG ever made. The game has so much packed into it, just a warning though, it can be very addictive (as I have found).
Just a few things I would like to mention about the game:

1. Compared to others in the series: Given a 20-30 hour cross section of this game, vs. Dragon Quest 5, Dragon Quest 5 remains the best game in the series hands down (I would call it better than Chrono Trigger, or at least on the same level). Although overall, Dragon Quest 9 has the best value in the series hands down.
2. Compared to the last game in the series (Dragon Quest 8); all of the annoyances have been fixed: the game moves at a much faster pace; the alchemy pot can now take up to 27 items and can pop out multiple items at once through alchemy; the alchemy pot is instant rather than 3 minutes to an hour; etc... While having a lower cosmetic appeal, the game also comes in the form of a faster moving package, which is a blessing for anyone who likes to see results faster. The game feels more like a Dragon Quest 3 and Dragon Quest 8 cross - rather than a game similar to Dragon Quest 4 or 5 (DQ5 is similar to 4, just a whole lot better).
3. While only generic custom characters are played in the main story, in the post game via online activated quests, the player gains access to actual characters (though, so far, there doesn't appear to be any special advantage these ones have).
4. Legacy bosses are fun, I only have the first one so far; Baramos (the Archfiend from Dragon Quest 3). Fighting Legacy bosses works better using multi-player, the other players can gain items and experience from the Legacy boss, while at the same time leveling up the Legacy boss.
5. I have only just got into the level 50 map range for Grottos. I am not entirely sure the mechanics, but generally I just keep playing the highest level map until I get a higher level map. My best one gives me ~12-15 mini-medals if I open all the treasure chests.
6. After completing the mini-medal side quest (80), a mini-medal store opens up where the player can get some reasonably good items.
7. Best place to level up is on the hill to the North East of Angel Falls - at least until Metal Slime Kings are found =) There are some skills that give 100% critical hit rates which make killing liquid metal slimes an easy affair, and eliminates the need for any other form of leveling up (it is faster to just level up there, and then avoid monsters in other locations).
8. Skill points should be acquired to max out at least 1 weapon, the shield, and as many vocation exclusive skill trees as possible (I have done Focus, Guts, Courage, Faith, Enlightenment, and perhaps 1 or 2 others).

Has anyone gotten the Luminary yet? I haven't found the Moai Minstrel yet.

Now to get this team and the moves u need to work hard. You need to have all the fources on the armamentalist and you need to have twocous poucous on the sage.
Firstly, you do twoucus pooucous on the paladin. He will kabuff. The glad will double up. The armamentalist will do whatever fources needed.
The pal will magic mirror and forbearance.( u don't need Kabuff part when fighting fowl eye) the glad will falcon slash ( uber falcon blade) the armamentalist will attack in some way ( mine is a bow master ) or it can use sap on the boss and the sage will either heal or attack( don't magic blast)
Repeat this until the boss dies. If a disruptive wave Is unleashed you will need to start from scratch

My team (although I mostly fight by myself with hero)are paladin +1 level 35,sage level 49,mage level 48,and martial artist level 66.I revocated with paladin and minstrel,my martial artist was with me the whole game.My original team was minstrel,2 martial artists,and a thief.I beat the game with my original team(although it took forever because my hero was the only healer)I recommend having a character that heals,a priest,a heavy hitter, a gladiator,a tank,someone who can take alot of damage,paladin,and anything else.I recommend a mage or armamentalist because they could use acceleratle which raises everyones speed.If you can go to a sage then I recommend switching your priest because a sage can cast Kazing which revives anybody with no chance of fail.The paladin is better than a minstrel because it can also heal and has higher defence and attack.The gladiator needsto have phsyche up,from martial artist tree,but the hero can't be the heavy hitter because it knows egg on.I recommend mastering the bow because it can restore MP with hallowed arrow.You should do the swinedimples quests because you can get books which contains a extra skill.These skills are very powerful,but use alot of MP.This is my team,thanks for reading,even though it took me forever.Bye :-)

Alchemy is the best way to get great armor and weapons.You should go to the internet to get recipes.You should also master fource from armamentalist and go to other sites to find out bossed weaknesses.This will help alot with boss battles.

The team I think I'd like is:

Maddox: Minstrel, Martial Artist, Ranger (Possibly)
Ghostess: Thief, Gladiator
Arthur: Warrior, Paladin
Gwen: Mage, Armamentalist

I haven't made this yet, so any suggestions are great.
