Cheats, Tips & Secrets for Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies on Nintendo DS

To get access to the Alchemy Pot, complete the entire story related to the Wight Knight and visit Quester's Rest. Erinn will tell you that she found an interesting thing; the Alchemy Pot. With that, you can create new weapons, armors, accessories, items, etc. Either try your luck or use recipes. You can get recipes from now on by reading books, talking to certain NPCs, or receiving specific sidequests.

Make sure Abbot Jack of Alltrades is back to the Alltrades Abbey. Go inside the abbey. Near the entrance, you will find a person with a red hat (Windy). Talk to him. He will give you the "Elementary Training" quest. This quest requires a lot of patience. You must defeat a certain number of Metal Slimes, but with a character that has used the ability "Wizard Ward". It must be that very character that delivers the final blow. Up to this point, your characters are probably very good levels and the Metal Slimes will always flee. To keep them in battle, you need low level characters. Use two new level 1 characters made in Stornway and have them die. You can find Metal Slimes at the Quaratomb, west of Coffinwell. If possible, try to get two characters dead, and the other two characters with low health. Engage any Metal Slime you encounter, and use Wizard Ward as soon as possible. Have the other character defend for the rest of the battle. Next, simply attack the Metal Slime until it dies After you defeat the given number of Metal Slimes, go back to the Abbey and talk to Windy. You will now have access to the Armamentalist vocation.

Set the system date to match your hero's birthday. The drop rate for items will be noticeable increased.

Go to the back of the village shop in Dourbridge and enter the hidden door using the Ultimate Key. Go down the stairs to enter a secret shop that sells rare items.

DQVC mode lets you download a list of special items, usually rare or unobtainable by any other way, with always very good prices. It also allows access to new quests and dungeons. Note that the dungeons and some sidequests are very new data compared to the items which are already included in the game's code, waiting to be "released". To get access to this feature, complete the entire Coffinwell-related story. Then, go back to Quester's Rest in Stornwell and talk to the woman next to the Alchemy Pot. Her name is Sellma, and she is the person responsible for the DQVC. Note: You can only download new things once per day, but you will get access to the shop at any time within that same day. New downloadables are available everyday starting at 8 a.m.

First, make sure Abbot Jack of Alltrades is back to Alltrades Abbey. Next, go downstairs of the Abbey, and talk to the purple person standing in front of the Inn. He will give you the "Gladiator Graduator" quest. All you need to do is defeat a certain number of slimes with a Super High-Tension Dragon Slash. Dragon Slash is a MP-free ability that a few classes can learn, and to achieve Super High-Tension you must use "Egg On" on the same character multiple times. Note that when you are on a Tension of 50, there is 50% chance to successfully achieve Super High-Tension (Tension of 100). Just keep Egging On the same character until you achieve this. A quick way to finish this quest is to go to go to Newid Isle and repeatedly engage a battle with a Slime. Chances are it will not be alone. You must not let the Slimes merge into a Slime Stack or a Slime King, as only Slimes count for this quest. Use Snooze on every turn to make them sleep, keep Egging On the character with Dragon Slash, and use Dragon Slash when the Tension is at 100. You can easily finish this quest with only one battle, as most of the time three or more Slimes will appear in battle. Return to the Abbey, talk to the purple person again, and you will have access to the very powerful Gladiator Vocation.

To do this trick, connect your DQIX to someone else. Give them any items you can, then shut your game off WITHOUT leaving their world. since you never saved after leaving their world, you'll still have the items you traded, and so will they.

Successfully complete the game. Then, travel to the Desert Kingdom of Gleeba. Enter the Dance Hall and go to the backstage entrance to encounter Applaudia, who will train you to become a Luminary. Defeat a Moai Minstrel with the "Hot Lick" skill . Moai Minstrels can be found in high level Grottoes.

While playing the game you will find numerous items called Mini Medals. In the town of Dourbridge, you can give these to a pirate king who lives there, and he will give you rare items in exchange. After you've given him 80 Mini Medals, he will sell you rare items. But you must use Mini Medals to buy them instead of Gold. 3 Medals: Prayer Ring 5 Medals: Elfin Elixir 8 Medals: Saint's Ashes 10 Medals: Reset Stone 15 Medals: Orihalcum 20 Medals: Pixie Boots.

UnlockableHow to Unlock

Make sure one of your characters knows the warrior ability "Whipping Boy". Go to Gleeba, in the Djust Desert. Enter the Mirage Mahal palace. Go on the roof, move north, and talk to Brunhild. You will receive the quest "Taking Soul Control", in which you need to successfully use "Whipping Boy" ten times. This quest is probably the easiest for unlocking other vocations. It is possible to complete it in a single battle. Go in the desert and try to engage in a battle with Axolhotls. They usually appear in groups and attack weaker characters in your party. Use Whipping Boy on your weakest character and have the other characters defend. You should complete the quest with only one battle. Return to Brunhild to unlock the Paladin vocation.

Make sure you have a character with the ability to use knives. Go southeast of Dourbridge, in direction of Zere Rocks. Before entering the forest that leads to Zere Rocks, talk to Odval. She will give you the "Ranger Changer" quest. This quest is very easy. Use the ability "Toxic Dagger" to poison a given amount of Hocus Chimaeras. Let them die by the venom, and not the other attacks. They each have about 70 HP in the following forest; try to calculate the hits you give them then use Toxic Dagger. After defeating the given amount of Hocus Chimaeras, return to Odval. You will now have access to the Ranger vocation.

Go to Gittingham Palace in the ruins of the Gitt Empire. After entering, move counterclockwise around the first floor until you find a staircase. Climb staircase and go to the hole in the floor. Directly next to the hole is a bookcase, with a book that is actually an ancient sage sealed into it. The Supreme Sage tells you that to become a sage you must defeat five great trolls with Frizz. To do this easily, find out how many attack turns it requires to kill the great troll. Then, attack all out for a number of turns that is one less than what is needed to defeat it. Next, let the mage finish the battle with Frizz.

If you go around to the back of the village shop in Dourbridge, there is a hidden door. Enter it (requires the Ultimate Key), and then you see a flight of stairs. Go down the stairs, and you can get into a secret shop with rare items.

Super High-Tension is a very good state, as any move performed while in this state is more powerful, whether it is a spell, ability, or attack. To achieve this, make sure you have the "Egg On" ability (a 0 MP ability). Only the hero can get it, when he talks to a certain women living under the tree in Zere. Every time you use this ability on someone, his tension will rise, going from 5 to 20 to 50 to the final 100. As soon as the character uses a move (other than defend), his Tension will go back to normal (0). Also, some states will revert the Tension to 0, such as falling asleep or getting paralyzed, among other things. keep Egging On a specific character and have the target character always doing "Defend". Once a character has a tension of 50, you have a 50% chance to successfully rise to a tension of 100, so just keep Egging On. This is a very useful to boost regular attacks offensive spells, or even healing spells.
