Square Enix has updated the Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time official Japanese website with screenshots and details on the game’s smithing system.
Get the information below.
■ Mysterious Smithing
Through “Mysterious Smithing,” you can create equipment with your own hands. You can create powerful equipment yourself, or strengthen the equipment you already possess.
—First, obtain recipes and materials! You can find recipes in locations such as bookshelves, and materials in the fields and such of each area.
—At camp, use the “Mysterious Smithing” set to begin smithing!
—Complete the smithing process to get your new equipment!
Use “Restrike Gems” to Strengthen the Equipment You Already Possess
If you’re successful in creating equipment, you can obtain “Restrike Gems.” Since your equipment won’t disappear even if you fail to upgrade it, you can freely try to reforge it.
—If you successfully reforge your equipment, it will become stronger.
—If you get a “satisfactory reaction” (the text at the bottom of the screen), you’ll get that much closer to a successful upgrade.
Dragon Quest XI: In Search of Departed Time will launch for PlayStation 4 and 3DS on July 29 in Japan. A Switch version is also planned, but has yet to be shown or dated. If you missed it, catch the latest trailers and gameplay footage here.
