So...does completing each treasure map simply lead to another treasure map?

Yes, and possibly the boss will drop some treasure.

So, are they for grinding purposes only?

For those of you who have a grotto with Metal King Slimes and/or Platinum King Jewels, what level is it?

The first map I got with MKS was level 50. Haven't got any PKJs yet.

The maps? Yeah. But not just for experience points. There are also things you can only get from blue chests in the deeper floors of high-level maps.

If you are curious, here's a wiki which lists the contents of the chests you can find in grottoes. Because some items are unique to a particular rank of chest, you can work backwards to figure out the rank of the chests you find. That way you can determine which chests are worth revisiting.

Do you have any level 50+ water maps with Slugly Betsies or Moai Minstrels? If you do, run around on the deepest level (just above the boss) and you should also find an MKS. That's not necessarily the only kind of floor on which you'll find an MKS but it's one of them.

@Zaphod - As a matter of fact, no, I don't have any maps like the one you described. If what you're saying is true, it's only a matter of time, I guess.

Exactly.

Well , I'm beyond psyched right now, as I got a Metal King Slime map!!!! Also, the boss is the Trauminator, and there's 24 treasure chests in the grotto! Now to get more skill points for Hatchet Man or Thunder Thrust, albeit with Liquid Metal Slimes, as those Metal King Slimes, Slugly Betties and Moai Menstrels pack some serious punches (how I beat the Luminary quest, I don't know).

Exactly.

Okay...so I am at the Realm of the Mighty, making my way up, but I was wondering...should I have a priest in my party? I've made it this far without one.

I finally got the oh-no bow (which I made into Odin's bow through alchemy) and a metal king shield! I also was one rank away from getting metal king slimes!

After I get my party to level 99 (I have a armamentalist, a mage, a priest, and a warrior), I was thinking of changing vocations. My mage would become a sage and my warrior would become either a gladiator or paladin. Which one should my warrior be, and should I keep my armamentalist and priest?

Oh, I meant when I get level 99 (my party is around level 70). I think I have logged in around 115 hours.

EDIT: I just checked and found out i have played around 140 hours.

Arrrgghhhh!!!

Question. How many slimedrops did you have to steal from a Slime King to get your second Slime Crown? (my first stolen crown was from earlier in the game, when I wasn't trying desperately to get one)

I'm currently trying to get 3 slime crowns, but all I seem to get are slimedrops (I've stolen well over a hundred drops and not a single crown!!)

I tried turning my characters all into thieves, so that they can steal easier, and their coup de grace can help a little in giving more drops (and my thief with his scroll) but I still can't get a crown.

I got my slime crowns from DQVC, but they aren't doing the slime theme any more. Actually, the best way to get them is from metal king slimes, but those are hard to get. King cure slimes are the second best. King slimes are the third best, so just keep trying!

Are Slime Crowns the common loot from Metal Slime Kings?
Are Metal Slime Kings as shy as any other metal slime?

If the answer to both of these are yes and no respectively, I'm giving up trying to get them from regular kings.
(Question 2, RE their shyness, it wouldn't be such a bad thing if I can get some steals in before they ran away)

But If they were available on the DQVC, I'd totally be able to afford them - just so long as they don't cost 300,000 each...
