Gather the people’s feelings of gratitude and sound the “Builder’s Bell!” The island’s residents’ motivation to build will gradually increase!

The inhabitants of the island who believe in the teachings of the Hargon Order will gradually become more positive through building with the protagonist. This is denoted by heart-shaped “Builder Points” sometimes dropped by the residents. By gathering many of these, you can sound the “Builder’s Bell” in town. The sound of the bell will draw out the motivation of the residents and they will gradually grow more positive towards building. Create your plantation in no time.

—The island residents’ feelings of gratitude for the protagonist’s building are represented by heart-shaped “Builder Points!”

Use “Builder Tools” that make building easier!

In addition to weapons and armor such as swords to fight against monsters, you can also equip “Builder Tools” that are useful for building. Things such as a hammer that breaks hard rocks, a bottomless pot that scoops up water, or gloves to carry things. All of these are useful tools, so use them well.

—Hammer: If you have a hammer, you can break hard rocks and trees! Build up power and swing it with a bang!

Dragon Quest Builders 2

—Bottomless Pot: Scoop up water in the bottomless pot and scatter it where you like! Create water fields in various places!

Dragon Quest Builders 2

—Gloves: By wearing gloves, you can carry things as they are without breaking them!

Dragon Quest Builders 2

—You can even move and reposition flowers and furniture!

Dragon Quest Builders 2

The Difference Between Weapons and the Hammer

Weapons such as swords can deal great damage to monsters, but will only break so little and cannot break anything hard like rocks and trees. A hammer can break a large variety of things, but can only deal little damage to monsters. Use these tools properly.

—Since wielding a weapon will not break buildings and furniture, you can fight the monsters attacking the town without hesitation.

Dragon Quest Builders 2

Dragon Quest Builders 2 is due out for PlayStation 4 and Switch on December 20 in Japan.
