Following last week’s introduction to the story and characters of Monzola Island in Dragon Quest Builders 2, Square Enix has updated the game’s official Japanese website with information on Monzola Island as a setting and more evolved building elements.
Get the details below.
◆ Monzola Island
Cooperate with the residents of Monzola Island in order to build a plantation and restore the island’s rich greenery!
While it is hard for the protagonist alone to build a plantation, the residents of the island will assist by plowing the field and watering the crops. By borrowing the strength of the island’s residents, you will be able to get the job done in no time. Combine your power to create your dream plantation!
—Put up a scarecrow! The island’s residents will plow the land!
—Decide which crops to grow and plant the seeds in the field!
—The island’s residents will water the crops! After that, wait for them to grow!
—Drive away the monsters attacking your crops!
—Many crops have grown!
—Build a plantation all your own!
Gather the people’s feelings of gratitude and sound the “Builder’s Bell!” The island’s residents’ motivation to build will gradually increase!
The inhabitants of the island who believe in the teachings of the Hargon Order will gradually become more positive through building with the protagonist. This is denoted by heart-shaped “Builder Points” sometimes dropped by the residents. By gathering many of these, you can sound the “Builder’s Bell” in town. The sound of the bell will draw out the motivation of the residents and they will gradually grow more positive towards building. Create your plantation in no time.
—The island residents’ feelings of gratitude for the protagonist’s building are represented by heart-shaped “Builder Points!”
—By ringing the Builder’s Bell, the level of the town and motivation of the residents will increase!
—The amount and variety of things the protagonist can create will also increase!
—Build even more and gradually raise your level!
◆ Evolved Building, Part 2
Part 1 available here.
Use “Builder Tools” that make building easier!
In addition to weapons and armor such as swords to fight against monsters, you can also equip “Builder Tools” that are useful for building. Things such as a hammer that breaks hard rocks, a bottomless pot that scoops up water, or gloves to carry things. All of these are useful tools, so use them well.
—Hammer: If you have a hammer, you can break hard rocks and trees! Build up power and swing it with a bang!
—Bottomless Pot: Scoop up water in the bottomless pot and scatter it where you like! Create water fields in various places!
—Gloves: By wearing gloves, you can carry things as they are without breaking them!
—You can even move and reposition flowers and furniture!
The Difference Between Weapons and the Hammer
Weapons such as swords can deal great damage to monsters, but will only break so little and cannot break anything hard like rocks and trees. A hammer can break a large variety of things, but can only deal little damage to monsters. Use these tools properly.
—Since wielding a weapon will not break buildings and furniture, you can fight the monsters attacking the town without hesitation.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on December 20 in Japan.
