SO this game looks pretty cool. But I'm not too big on RPG's. I've only played Earthbound, Mother 3, TWEWY, and the first two Mario&Luigi games. I loved all those, but does anyone know if I'd enjoy this one as well?

If i were you (since your not a huge fan of rpgs) see if you can rent this first. This is old school rpg level building turn based fighting. This is one of the games that started the rpg crazy and has not changed to much from the original formula. It is different then the games you posted but i like those games also. It is a very good game that needs a lot of time to enjoy.

I just got this game this morning and I love it. It's so good that I don't even care how stupid the enemy names are "cruelcumber" "sacksquatch" "batterfly"

Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...

@Roopa - I actually like the names of DQ's monsters. It's better than the newer Pokémon names, at least.

Exactly.

How often is there new DLC? And if a new one comes can you still download the older ones, too?

@Roopa - According to Nintendo Power, a new quest comes out every week, so as of know there are 3 quests available to download. Also, the online shop thing updates either every day or every week, I'm not sure which. The old quests are automatically downloaded to your game the next time you connect, so you can still get them.

All right, now that that's taken care of, I have a question of my own. I recently made it to Dourbridge, and at the weapon shop there, they're selling the Poison Needle there. How often does it OHKO? I'm deciding whether or not to get it for my mage as opposed to keeping him equipped with a staff for the MP absorption.

Exactly.

Ok thanks Birdman. And actually I have another question: How do I choose my own character's profession? I know when I recruit new group members I can choose their professions but you can't choose a profession when you create your main character.

@Roopa
After leaving Coffinwell and gaining access to the Starflight Express, you'll be able to go to Alltrades Abbey, where you can change the vocation of anyone in your party.

@Birdman13
I'd put its OHKO percentage between 5% - 10%. Closer to ten though probably.

@Roopa - I'll do my best to avoid plot spoilers, but you can't immediately change your profession when you get there. It'll be another boss battle before that can occur, one that goes immediately from cutscene to battle, so be prepared for that.

@Nintendogamerftw - So, it's be better as a weapon to carry around for boss battles than conventional fights?

@Roopa
I was about 15 hours in before reaching the Abbey (and you have to run through a dungeon first and "rescue" someone before you can change classes), but i spent a lot of time just running around and "grinding" a bit, so i'm sure you can reach it much sooner.

@Birdman
I'd keep a staff equipped, but i imagine it'll boil down to your own personal play-style.

Just to confirm. There is a single savegame slot for a single player, right? So you cannot create more than one character.

Far as I know, that is correct.

I just made it to Coffinwell, happy because I found the recipe for a Fur Poncho. :3

...And i'm looking for Pure Water. From what i've read, I still have a ways to go before I get it, right?

Pure water? I've never heard of such an item. Are you playing the European version of the game, it may be different in that version. What do you need it for?

I don't have 9, but it was in 8 as well, if not all the games. You can use it in the alchemy pot.

US version. It's a basic item I need for a sidequest. You give it to a guy in Angel Falls and he gives you Angel's Tears, which you give to the guy who wants it in Stornwell Castle.
