A treasure trove of info
Square Enix has shared a fresh round of details on the upcoming Dragon Quest Treasures. This time around, we get some info on how bases work, the gang feature, and some of the facilities you’ll visit. You can see the complete breakdown of details below.
No Gang is Complete Without a Base!
With the threat of rival treasure hunting crews looming large, Erik and Mia form a gang of their own and even manage to snag a base of operations. Every piece of loot they acquire adds to the total value of their treasure vault. When this value hits a certain point, their gang will go up a rank, unlocking new treasure – hunting abilities and the option to add to the base’s amenities. The best way to build a bigger and better gang is to collect as much treasure as possible!
Now that their flag is raised, it’s official – Erik and Mia’s gang has its own base! As the base grows and their skills improve, Erik and Mia will soon be swimming in treasure!
Wanna Join My Gang?
The gang’s membership is made up of the monster inhabitants of Draconia. As you explore the different islands, you’ll encounter many monsters that wish to join your ranks. Take the treasure you find together back to base, where it will be appraised and added to the vault. As the total value of the treasure in your vault goes up, so will your gang’s rank, bringing with it a great range of benefits for a budding explorer.
Purrsula is a mysterious creature who advises Erik and Mia and helps them to form their gang.
After battle, some monsters will be inspired to join your gang.
As the value of your treasure vault goes up, so will your gang’s rank. Each new rank comes with a host of benefits to make you a better treasure hunter, as well as adding bonus multipliers to the value of the loot you bring back.
The name of your gang is entirely up to you! Once you’ve settled on a great name, it’s time to choose the perfect flag for your gang. More flags can be unlocked by defeating rival gangs or exploring the far – flung reaches of Draconia.
As Erik and Mia explore Draconia, they come across an unusual island that was once home to the HQ of the Trans-Draconic Railway Company. One of its loyal employees, Mr. Euston, agrees to let them use the island as their base. From there, Erik and Mia plan for their adventures, organizing the monsters in their party and even sending teams of monsters on missions to bring back loot. The old storeroom is the perfect place for the siblings to display their favorite treasures. The base can be expanded with more facilities, turning it into a central hub for treasure hunting!
