Dragon Warrior 3 - Platform: Gameboy Color
Hint: Bonus dungeon:
Collect all the Monster Coins in the game to unlock a new dungeon.
Hint: More Sages:
There are two Zen Scroll Books in every game, but you do not
necessarily need the book to create a Sage. When you get stronger,
change one of your characters into a Jester.
Then train it to level 20 and bring it to the Dharma Temple.
The Sage option is automatic for any Jester at level 20. It is
possible to have more than one Sage per game.
Hint: All spells:
To get almost all spells, keep changing everyone to a different
class and fight around Gondo to level up. For example, change to
Dealer, then Thief, then Jester, then Sage.
Hint: Easy experience:
To get a high amount of levels, get the Blade Armor then go into
Gonga's castle. Move around and try to encounter a Metababble and
attack it. Only have one or two characters on your team. When it
hits the character with the Blade Armor once, it will always get
hit back for half the damage +1.
Have any character have at least one heal spell. Equip the Wreck
Whip to them, and if they are female, the Light Dress. Warp to
Rimuldar and walk to Zoma's Castle. You should fight with one person.
Each fight you get into will result in 6,000 to 19,999 experience
Choose any character to go to the Pachisi track in Kol. Sometimes
when you fight some monsters and get the experience points, you w
ill go to level 99. This has happened to a Hero, Sage, and Fighter.
Each of the following methods of quick levels require the Spell
Caster (Mage, Cleric, Sage, or character with the corresponding
spell from a previous class) to have a lot of agility, as to get
the first strike in a battle. It is also recommended (if you have
defeated Baramos) that you go to the area outside of Rimudlar in
the Dark World. If not, then Gondo Castle will work as well. Go to
the area outside Rimudlar with a spell caster that has the spell
BeDragon and any where from two to four party members, walk until
you fight a Metable (hopefully a large group of them with three to
five individuals). Immediately cast BeDragon. On the second round
of battle, your spell caster that is in dragon form will spew flames.
Any Metables that are on the screen when this happens will receive
90 to 110 damage (their maximum HP are only 6). You will receive
approximately 40,000 experience for each one you kill, split among
your party members. Another way to kill Metables easily is to cast
Chance immediately. Hopefully it will cause the Metables to explode
or have one of the other possible instant kill effects that Chance
Hint: Experience for levels:
All levels after 50 take the same amount of experience as from
going from levels 49 to 50.
Hint: Defeating Divinegon:
Note: This is easier If your hero has gone to the level he is on
to 99 on the track game in Kol. Have two sages and a cleric.
If you are getting your last wish, this will work best. Start by
only having your hero attack (save magic for HealusAll) then, have
your sages cast BlazeMost and have the cleric cast Increase and
TwinHits to make the hero strong when compared the attack of the
magic BlazeMost. Be careful when Divinegon fires an Icy Pulse to
get rid of your status changes in defense and attack. After about
fourteen turns, he will be defeated and you will get your final
Hint: Defeating Lord Baramos:
When you first come in contact with Lord Baramos, immediately
cast Stopspell or he will hit you with Explodet and Blaze Most.
Then, have one person that knows spells use Twin Hits on your
two best fighters. Then, have that same person use Increase. Have
the other spellcaster use Increase also. You need about five to
seven Increases to stop is physical blows. When Baramos does a
non-magical fire attack, cast HealUs. Just keep attacking without
using magical spells -- unless one of your mages has low attack
power, then use magic. With these tips, you should defeat him in
less than five minutes. Party members should be at level 32 or
Have at least three people on your team knows the Barrier spell.
As the fight starts, cast the magic. All of the spells such as
Explodet will be reflected. Also use the Magic Increase, and Speed
Up to get your attacks in faster and better. Using TwinHits to
increase your attack also works well.
Hint: Defeating Mettabels:
To defeat a Mettabel faster than equipping the Blade Armor, just
have a two Sages or Mages with a lot of speed. Make sure they have
the magic, BeDragon. Cast the magic at the beginning of the battle
around Rimuldar area, and hopefully you will get into contact with
at least six of them. Cast BeDragon and have the attacker spew
fire. Note: You can not control the Dragon. It should inflict
about 90 to 120 HP of damage, earning you about over 30,000
Hint: Divinegon's wishes:
After defeating Zoma in the Underworld and earning the title of Loto,
there will be a light beam at the Dragon Queen's castle which warps
you to Sky World. Once past the caverns and such, you should reach
Zenith. It resembles the queen's throne room from Isis. Once down
the stairs and out the door, you will enter a tower. This is the
Sky Tower of Divinegon, the most difficult Boss in the game. When
you defeat him, he will grant you one of four wishes. He will then
leave you, and the wish will come true. However, if return he will
still be there. Defeat him again and you can get another wish. This
time however, you have to defeat him in a certain number of turns,
which things more difficult. If you are able to do this, any surviving
party members will get 16,666 experience points.
Hint: Books Of Satori:
Randomly defeat the Blue Beaks. They can be found directly east of
Hint: Hero Shield:
When you defeat Zoma and are tossed up to the fault line, the treasures
you find will contain Mimics and finally the Hero Shield.
Hint: King's Sword:
Go to the Domadora and go to the stable. Search the grass next to some
horses and find the Oricon. This item can never be obtained again. Take
the Oricon to Kol and talk to the person's wife who says that her husband
make swords for the metal. Go inside the shop and talk to one of the people.
One of them will take your Oricon and make the King's Sword.
After you defeat Zoma and you have the title as Loto, go to the Queen
Dragon's Castle. Go all the way to the north where the elf is locatedand
stand in the beam. Note: You should be at least level 45.
Hint: Monster Medals:
Monster Medals come in Bronze, Silver, and Gold (in that order). In
order to get a Silver Medal, you must have a Bronze. To get a Gold,
you have to have the Silver. It takes time to get all of the medals.
To focus on the medal you want, kill that monster last.
Hint: Second Zen Scroll:
A second Zen Scroll is located in a house at Rimuldar, when you reach
it later in the game. Look in the dresser in the house northwest of the
Blacksmith Shop in Rimulder in Alfgard.
Hint: Suit changes:
Some armor changes the appearance of you characters. For example, the
common Plush Suit that adds 35 to your defense will change your character
into a squirrel. If you have a female in your party and you get a Magic
Swimsuit from a Merking in Alegard, that character will appear with the
bathing suit on.
Hint: Better characters:
When you are getting your allies, do not get the ones that are pre-made
for you. Instead, go upstairs and make a warrior, a mage, and a cleric.
For the Warrior, use three Str seeds and two Vit seeds. For the Mage, use
three Int seeds and two Str seeds. For the cleric, use three Wis seeds and
use two Int seeds to increase your mana.
Hint: Orb Locations:
Red: House of Pirates
Yellow: New Town
Blue: Navel of Earth
Silver: Shrine of Necrogon
