The other night Nintendo’s multiplayer servers were offline for maintenance or something, so I ended up going back to Dragon Quest Builders. I was ready to start the final chapter when whatever stopped me playing the first time appeared. I didn’t get the gold star for whatever you need to do on the 3rd part, but whatever. I’m getting really sick of arbitrary tasks that get me nothing in terms of gameplay perks. For the most part DQB is a pretty chill game even in boss fights, but there was one part of this chapter where I was wondering if I could get past it. I think I did some quests in a less than optimal order which made my battle against waves and waves of status inflicting enemies harder than it needed to be. In any case I was able to sneak attack the last quest boss for that section and then just scooted along right the heck out of there.
One strange thing about DQB is that if you start on a blueprint before laying it out the game wont let you place it on the ground, which is really odd because I had guessed correctly at the floor plan for the castle and preemptively begun repairs, but I had to undo my work to place the blueprints. It’s a small gripe but there it is anyway. Other than that it’s been a good time. Hopefully I can finish the story mode without too much drama and see what else the game has to offer, if anything.
