DRAGON QUEST XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age Trophy Thoughts

66 posts in this topic

Haven't played a Dragon Quest game since forever and never really got to finish one.

This one got good reviews. Hopefully this will be the one to get me.

Trophy-wise, looks like the typical JRPG trophies that will require 80h+ to Platinum.

From what I've heard the game is not hard to platinum, but it sucks that there's only 1 gold trophy :/

My heart breaks for the 3DS version I’ll never get to play. Darn region locks, and darn bull-headed Square Enix abandoning your Dragon Quest base in the west. Enjoy your trophies folks.

It heartbreaks me to see such ugly trophy icons/pictures for such a awesome colorful game.

Platinum is harder than the JP version because you have to collect every cosmetic costume (this includes the DQVIII costume upgrade) as well as Ultimate Enlightenment.

Is there a reason so many trophies use the same icon, or is that just from laziness?

Do you know if there are any missable trophies?

depends, do you like:

 

- classic turn based combat

- the art style of akira toriyama (dragon ball)

- enormous and epic adventures (100h +)

- a touch of "J" in your games? :P

 

did you play games like final fantasy (the older ones combat wise) or something from the persona series (or maybe pokemon idk^^)? 

than this might be for you

 

I can recommend you this review from tim rogers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iTbUGItU0s (he is a hardcore fan but I think everyone who enjoyed previous entries in the series can understand his enthusiasm)

I've played RPGs, even of the 'J' variety before. I'm not very good at them but I want to get into them more. I am looking into some of the older remakes on the DS/ 3DS as well

there is always the option to grind a bit so everything becomes a bit easier. imo this is a great way to make it through a game even if you are "not very good" at it (grinding on the other hand is not for everybody).

but dragon quest is not known for it's high difficulty

Those trophies seem to be Story-related trophies, so it's either because they don't want to put spoiler images or they were "lazy" like you said.

Is everything to the Gold Trophy, story related?

No. There are lots of trophies for getting characters to Level 99, collecting armor sets, getting Puff-Puffs, etc.

I meant in the list.  Are all the trophies between Coming of Age and Echoes of an Elusive Age all story related.

Suffering from Kingdom Hearts syndrome, where 90% of the trophies were bronze. This is not going to give a great gamer score, but it looks like this game is going to suck every living minute of my life for the rest of the year with all of its things to do. The trophy for "making an eternal pledge" intrigues me. I have a feeling that our hero is going to get the chance to tie the knot with someone. ;)

 

Being the very first main Dragon Quest game with a trophy list, I am glad to see that the game is going to deliver.

Never played a Dragon Quest in my life (gamed for 30 years) but this one I'm planning to get. Trailer looks amazing. Never noticed this series before at all.

I believe so, considering the icons and the trophy descriptions.

 

I think every trophy with the 30S89cd96.png icon is a direct story trophy

I cannot have a concrete opinion if it is a difficult or easy list with or without missable trophies (maybe the 6,720 players who have platinum in the Japanese version can help me in this matter) but i'm super happy for this game to finally reach other countries, in terms of game reminds me of dragon quest 8 that continues with final fantasy and chrono trigger to be my favorite RPG's ever.
I'm sad that this great game has been set aside. I spent tens of hours to defeat metal slimes and the characters at maximum level. not to mention the secret zone of dragons where it offers hard bosses.

Come on 4th, pre-order already made!

This game actually gives 1,230 trophy points, which is the maximum games are allowed.

I don’t care if this DQ game has just one golden trophy or a lot of bronze trophies! This game seem interesting and it has a casino! Defenetly I want play this game. Trophies with a book are story trophies surely, and the rest probably few can be earn while you play the main story, 40 side quest is a nice number so I think this game won’t be hard to plat.
