    What are Chapter Challenges?

    Dragon Quest Builders Chapter Challenges

    First off, you can’t really view these challenges until after you beat a chapter. Doesn’t stop you from completing them beforehand, though! Many of these challenges involve doing things you would normally do, such as gathering items and improving your base. However, there are some extra things like completing quests given to you and some hidden side content. What these challenges do is that upon completion, they allow you to build more things in Terra Incognita by unlocking new recipes for you. This makes that extra mode much more fulfilling to play with a bevy of new options. Not to mention that completing these challenges is just downright satisfying!
