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?

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.

Oh, I think it's fresh water you want. It's found near Slurry Quay by a waterfall to the north. You get there after taking a boat from Porth Llaffan.

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?

I am not a fan of RPG's also (unless its pokemon or M&L), and I am in love with this game. Too bad my internet doesn't work with my DS anymore, becausse I wanna try that DQVC thing... :/

@Starcross64 - If you've only played a few RPG's, I've played less than you. DQIX's battle system is turn-based, meaning you select what you want each of your characters to do (or put them on a customizable auto-pilot system), and a "round" is played out where each of your characters do what you've told them to do and the enemy(s) do the same to you. It's like a more complicated pokémon battle, so to speak. I found no problems adjusting from Pokémon's battle system to DQIX.

@sonic_brawler95 - Try to see if you can reconfigure your internet settings to access DQVC. Anyway, DQVC isn't that awesome. I've accessed it twice and all I've been able to buy (besides a mini-medal) were some alchemy ingredients. It's not that important to the main quest.

Exactly.

Can I reset the skill points somewhere? Like say when I find a really really good weapon that I can actually use for a long time that I can pay some gold so I can put my skill points on that weapon kind.

Probably getting a Vita with LBP soon...

This game is great, just like all previous DQ games. In particular, this version is like a mini version of WoW or EQ. Let me explain: I was able to procure a 'miracle sword' for my warrior. Later I found an alchemy recipe for 'uber miracle sword'. Sweet, gotta get me that! OK looks easy enough, combine a miracle sword with 2 life bracers, mix vigorously and... well hold on. I couldn't just find 2 life bracers, let alone 1. Found out that I needed to combine a gold bracer with 2 life rings to make a life bracer. Gold bracer was easy to get but... backtracking again, I had to create the life rings. Those take a prayer ring and 3 resurrocks! Again, prayer ring was easy but now I had to come up with a total of 12 resurrocks to make enough life rings to turn into life bracers! OK, I can do this - found out that resurrocks were harvestable somewhat near Gleeba but they also dropped off some handsome crabs with a 1/32 success rate. Yes folks, I had a major need to do some MMO-type farming. I found that I could only harvest 2-3 resurrocks over a multiple-hour span of time near Gleeba, so I felt it might be quicker to farm some handsome crabs. I farmed for quite a few hours, got the resurrocks and eventually made that 'uber miracle sword' I was pining for. My warrior loves it and I love this game.

You can't reset skill points anywhere. Once you've used them, they're gone. However, if you want to get more, switch vocations, which will reset your character to level 1. You can collect skill points in that vocation, then switch back to your old vocation, and then you can use them for the weapon you want to use.

You only go to level 1 for the vocation you switched to. If you change back to your original vocation, you'll go back to the level you were in that vocation. So basically, progress any character makes in a vocation is permanent.

This is just a piece of advice I think would be helpful for a lot of people. When you arrive in Dourbridge (after you get the fygg from Port Llaffen), if one of your characters is using a sword (or even if your not), DO NOT buy a Cautery Sword. Instead, head to the northeast section of town into the large tent. Talk to the dude in the middle of the tent (the one not facing you), and provided you have at least 4 Mini Medals (I think), you will get a theif's key. Head back to Stornway Castle and find the room where there are three soldiers training. There's a locked chest in that room, or at least was. Inside should be a Cautery Sword! Even if you don't have a character who uses a sword, that can be resold for a good sum of money.

Also, if you're using an Iron Broadsword, don't immediately resell it. You can alchemise it into a more powerful Steel Broadsword later or possibly even before getting to Dourbridge. Anyway, I just thought that this was something helpful for those not too far into the game. Happy questing!

Exactly.

It is very hard resisting to buy this game to save money for all the Wii games coming later this year...Very VERY hard.

It took me about 50 hours to beat the game. Additionally, I'm at 100 hours now, and haven't gotten anywhere colse to getting/doing everything there is to do in this game. It's a BIG game!

wow
that's great :
I'll be playing this for a while, then
actually, I have another question (though it's not as important )
when you create a character, do you get to choose if it's male or female? or does it choose automatically?
