■ Setting

◆ Endless Battle Island

Reliable residents! Combine your strength, and even castle-building will be a breeze!

In Dragon Quest Builders 2, residents will actively participate in the building process. By borrowing their strength, you can build even large castles without issue. Here, we will look at how residents participate.

Put materials into the storage chest! The residents will build a castle according to the blueprints!

While building a large castle alone may prove difficult, you can quickly put one together if you borrow the strength of the residents. If the protagonist makes the blueprints and puts the necessary materials into the storage chest, the island’s residents will take out the materials and build based on the blueprints. Even building a huge castle will be a breeze if you borrow their strength.

—First, make the blueprints!

—Place the required materials into the storage chest! The objects included in the blueprints be displayed clearly on the workbench!

Build “weapons” with magical power to fight against the army of the powerful Hargon Order!
