Read up on all the details, translated by Gematsu:
Outside of the main story, Dragon Quest X Offline will offer a number of mini-games and other fun elements such as the “Casino” and “Fun-Size Forge.” Today, we will introduce the “Fishing” and “Tombola” mini-games, as well as the handy “Dollboard” vehicle.
■ (1) Become a student of the Fishing Master and master the art of fishing!
In the harbor city Lendor, there is a master fisher named “Fishing Master Halmos,” and by becoming his student through a quest, you will be able to “Fish.” The fish available at each “Fishing Spot” in the world of Astoltia vary, so try fishing at various spots during your adventure to master the art of fishing.
—If you accept the quest from Fishing Master Halmos, he will give you a “Fishing Rod” and “Lure.”
—After becoming his student, you can enjoy fishing mini-games by going to the fishing spots marked on the map.
—At each fishing spot, you can see the fish that can be caught there and their rarity. The rarer the fish, the harder the catch.
—In the fishing mini-game “Fishing Battle,” you can catch fish by pulling or loosening the line while checking the “bite strength” of the fish on the rod.
—If you land a fine fish, you will obtain not only the fish, but also fishing EXP. Your “Fishing Level” will increase as you earn fishing EXP, allowing you to learn special fishing skills.
—Deliver the fish you catch to Fishing Master Halmos to receive fishing EXP plus “Fish Coins.” Depending on your Fishing Level, you may also be rewarded better fishing equipment.
Collect Fish Coins to Exchange for Valuable Items
Fish Coins are a special coin given to you by Fishing Master Halmos and can be exchanged for various items at the “Fish Trader” depending on the amount. The Fish Trader’s lineup of products include Alchemy Pot recipes and materials, and other special items only available here.
■ (2) Win big in a Tombola drawing!
If you have a “Tombola Ticket,” which can be obtained as a free gift for shopping at a store among other means, you can play “Tombola” by talking to a “Travel Concierge.” Whether you win or not comes down to luck, but if you are lucky, you can win extravagant prizes.
—After obtaining a Tombola Ticket, go see the Travel Concierge at the inn in one of the big towns.
—You can draw once for each Tombola Ticket you have. If you have 10 Tombola Tickets or more, you can also draw 10 at once.
—If you draw something good, you can get Magic Labyrinth coins or materials to synthesize Magic Labyrinth Coins.
—If a monster suddenly appears during your drawing, then that is your lucky chance! It may even change into a jackpot ball.
Adventurer Services Provided by the Travel Concierge
Inns located in large towns have a Travel Concierge who, if granted permission to utilize, can provide services such as Tombola and Quest Guidance offered by the World Inns Association.
—The Travel Concierge will guide you on the quests currently available.
■ (3) Fly about Astoltia on the ancient vehicle known as a Dollboard.
In Astoltia, where the game is set, there remain relics of an ancient civilization called “Divine Machines. One of these Divine Machines is a mysterious floating vehicle called the “Dollboard.” Get your own Dollboard, which is essential for smooth adventuring, and fly about Astoltia!
—The Divine Machine researchers on the continent of Dwachakka seem to know about the Dollboard…
—Riding a Dollboard increases your movement speed significantly. You can also open treasure chests and jump while riding.
—You can ask the “Custom Decor” shop in the Mountain City Gatara to change the color set of your Dollboard. There are more than 50 colors to choose from, so choose your favorite combination to make a Dollboard all your own.
Changing Your Dollboard’s Form
If you have a “~Prism” item, which are exclusively for Dollboards and can be obtained by purchasing the Deluxe Edition of Dragon Quest X: Rise of the Five Tribes Offline among other means, you can change the form (appearance) of your Dollboard at the Custom Decor shop.
Dragon Quest X Offline releases on September 15 for PS4, PS5, Switch, and PC via Steam in Japan.
