Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies Guide

Unofficial Dragon Quest IX Guide by swaggers for


Welcome to our complete Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies walkthrough. When you first start the game you need to create your hero. Man, woman, tall, short, spiked hair, whatever you want. These choices are purely cosmetic and do not affect the gameplay in any way. After creating you hero you will name yourself and then be placed in the opening cutscene.

Dragon Quest IX starts out showing you as a Celestrian Hero. You have just taken over as guardian of a small village called Angel Falls. The previous guardian Aquilla is showing you the ropes. As you look over the village you'll see two villagers about to be ambushed and the two of your will spring into action. Because of your Celestrian powers this won't be much of a battle and simply serves to show you the basics of combat. Just keep attacking and they will go down. The villagers will say a prayer for you which will provide you with Benevolessence. This is the manifestation of the people's appreciation for your deeds.

You and Aquilla will then fly up to the Observatory. The Observatory serves as the Celestrians home base. Feel free to wonder around and talk to the other Celestrians. The Celestrian to the bottom left with give you a free healing and you can read a book in the library to the left if you want. There is also a minor chest in the room to the right. The prayer room to the far middle contains a priest who you can talk to when you want to save your game.

When you are ready talk to Apus Major via the first stairs at the front of the map. He'll tell you to take your Benevolessence to the Great World Tree. Exit via the south doors on this floor and the guard will let you head up the stairs.

Climb the top the top of the area to see the Great World Tree. Approach the tree and give your Benevolessence to get a short cutscene. Afterwards talk to Aquilla and then back down and inside to talk to Apus Major. He'll tell you to return to Angel Falls to do some good. When you are ready head to the opening on the bottom of the map and talk to the Celestrian there and she'll send you down.

By 'could kill one og your charecters' i meant kill one of your charecters

12. if you want to level up quickly, zoom 2 angel falls and use sterlins whisle and go on the hill bit, and run around a lot and eventually, you can find liquid metal slimez.

You Need the Full Control Of The Starflight Express Which you can get by following these steps.

1.Kill Corvus (2nd form)
2.after the rather boring credits, zoom 2 porth llafan.
3.Find Jona and complete the quest she gives you. - you will need these Flowing Dress-alchemy/buy it from upover armour shop
Watermaul Wand- Gleeba Wepons shop
Silver Shield- Stornway armor shop (oh, by the way, speak to the female owner and, you can buy it there also, go to the weapons shop and speak to the blonde bloke and he has stuff like Gladius-knife demon Spear Falcon Blade and other cool weapons)

4. equip them on a sage or any vocation that can equip all of them (I did sage.)also if the guy/gal has a better weapon, in the battle with levithan who is some how super-powered or somethin' like that, go on the Misc. menu in the fight and equip the better weapon. you can't change armour in battle so, thats a downside.

5.Have a Team Of Lv. 55 or more (reccomended) or else the boss could kill one og your charecters in 1 hit (like he did with my guy who was about lv. 47 and i lost)

6. go to the place where you killed levithan the first time.

7. Own Levithan

8. Speed through the lame cut sene

9. you get a fygg. you have to eat in order to con tinue or you will be there for ages gett punched by something invusible. wake up & see stalla again!!(About time in all)

11. scene with stella + sterling
