Cheats, Codes & FAQs

Faster alchemy cook time

Alchemy cook times seem to be based on the number of steps taken. To speed up the process, begin a recipe in a town and run in place against a building or object; corners seem to work best. Your recipe should be ready in a little less than two minutes. 

Rare equipment

Save rare equipment early in the game. Do not get rid of items you do not know where to buy or make from alchemy, because you might not get them for a long time again; and that will prevent you from making some of the better equipment early in the game.

How to beat Metal Slimes

In the medical shop, buy the Holy Water. When in-battle with Metal Slime, choose command item and use it on the Metal Slime. It will always do 1 damage. Do this four times for Metal Slimes when you are at levels 20 to 25.

Final Fantasy 8 reference

Angelo shares the same name as Rinoa's dog in Final Fantasy 8. 

Final Fantasy 9 reference

Alexandria is the name of the Castle where Princess Garnet used the summon to protect herself form Bahamut in Final Fantasy 9. In Dragon Quest 8, that is the name of the town where you meet Jessica.
