Dragon Quest X Gameplay

Dragon Quest X is the tenth part of the famous Japanese RPG series Dragon Quest. It was created specifically for Wii and Wii U consoles, but it's currently available on a wide variety of platforms. Dragon Quest X has a traditional class system, which features classes like a wizard, warrior, priest, minstrel, martial arts specialist, and many others. The events of the game are set in the magical world of Astoria, which is divided into five continents.

At first glance, the gameplay of the tenth Dragon Quest part remained the same: the player creates his character and goes to fight with monsters, and the combat system is traditionally turn-based. During the gameplay, the hero can change specializations, and character development is based on the distribution of points of ability, given after reaching each new level.

As in previous parts, players can arrange their characters for work. The main difference between Dragon Quest X and other DQ games is that here the heroes can change their work to another in different cities. The creators of the project did an excellent job on the graphics and added new content. Even though Dragon Quest X is an MMORPG, you can complete any of its quests offline.

In this game, players will be able to explore the corners of Astoria, perform various quests and get equipment for their character, which will make challenging quests easy. A large selection of weapons, armour and numerous additional accessories ("devices"), as already said, will help in the completion of challenging quests and decorate your character.

The player can invite friends and play with them (quests will seem even easier if you complete them in groups). There is also an alternative option to choose three mercenaries and explore Astoria in role mode switching from one character to another and giving the rest under the AI control. The player will be allowed to move around the battlefield without restrictions (remember that in previous parts of the battle was a step-by-step), and to control the characters will still have to use the same interface menu windows.

Since Dragon Quest X is a classic of the RPG genre, players will have a large tree of character development. During quests, the player will have to earn not only experience to develop the character, but also the currency that will allow buying equipment.

Dragon Quest X Races

The player can choose between 6 different types of races, with a 7th race included in The Legend of the Ancient Dragon.

Human — native inhabitants of Rendashia. It is a basic race which can be changed during gameplay.

Demon — the evil force which came from the Nadiria dimension.
