Happy New Year 2018 :D

Emulator and version: desmume-0.9.11-win32

Goal choice: Beat the game as fast as possible

Gameplay: Dragon Quest IX continues the Dragon Quest tradition of turn-based combat, with a few modern twists. The game allows players to have a cooperative wireless multiplayer experience with up to four players. Unlike the other games in the main series, Dragon Quest 9 is a 3rd person RPG in battles and there are no more random encounters. Instead the enemies are on a open world map and can chase you if they see you, very similar to Dragon Quest monster Joker.


Details of the run:


  1. I: has the skill EGG ON to raise comrade's tension and sometimes needed to use SAP to decrease the boss' DEF so I changes class to Armamentalist.
  2. X: the main damage of the team, need skill PSYCHE UP to raise her own tension, and skill DOUBLE UP to raise ATK so X changes class to Gladiator.
  3. Y: needs to imbue X with different elemental power and uses SAP to decrease the boss' DEF so Y changes class to Armamentalist as well.
  4. Z: is the tank of the team so Z changes class to Warrior to has skill WHIPPING BOY (takes damage instead of other heroes)

RNG manipulation:
