The title of this post may be confusing to some, but let me assure you that this isn’t a wiki problem. Well, it was, but we’re trying to fix it.
I just want to put the word out there that Dragon Quest XI seems to be wildly inconsistent in its deployment of case.
- Unless there’s already a proper name, monsters and items generally don’t get capped. In a shop or in menus, Title Case is applied.
- In dialogue, the names of boss monsters do get capped. In battle, some do not.
- Important items are rather hit or miss. Proper name conventions are followed, but after that, it’s a tossup.
It just doesn’t make sense to me to create a bunch of redirects for all the variations that could be possible. I’d like to propose that we use the most common occurrence wh…Read more >
OK, so Dragon Quest XI is a fantastic game. I’m not gonna lie here.
As I play the game mostly blind, let’s just say I’m finding a lot of inconsistencies in our coverage so far.
The Hero is the Luminary; the Luminary is the Hero. It’s both a title and the de facto name of the Hero. There’s not enough information on the title, so I propose merging the two. Both are separate and distinct from the recurring Luminary class.
I’m also trying to stitch together the various events without putting too much spoilage into the stories, but that’s just about impossible. The game is still new enough that everything is a spoiler. Therefore, spoiler tags must be deployed at all times. I’m a little concerned with the behavior of these tags, as they hide p…Read more >
Throughout the years, Akira Toriyama has blessed gamers and minion collectors with his artwork, both old and modern. And even when it couldn't be found through normal Internet means, it was plentiful in DQ Japanese Gaming Guides. But now, ever since the release of the Paradise Papers, Dragon Quest monster artwork production has hit a MASSIVE delince. So much, that it's rarely being shown in Japanese Dragon Quest Guides. Akira Toriyama's stuff had been hit by the Paradise Papers, as shown in this article: (https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2017/11/06/dragon-ball-author-named-in-paradise-papers-leak). It's a dark time for minion collectors and the VA, as we try to get artwork for monsters like Ursa panda*, Pilferer, Grey gordon, Wight b…Read more >
Swordzman at your service. After a year and a half of vacancy, I've stepped in to the role formerly filled by a user named Ellis99, which means you might see some strange things going on. This was brought about by what I'll call an emergency: we've got a few solid editors doing the grind day in, day out; but none could manage the operational side of the Wiki because of the vacancy. So, on or about 6 months in, I started getting notices from the Wiki about adoption. I was thinking about it, but I know very little of the Dragon Quest universe save how to play. My edits were barely above 500, and I'm busy managing other things on other wikis. I didn't have much in the way of time to handle a project this massive.
But, around midyear 2…Read more >
Dear Dragon Quest Wiki Team,
my name is Hydrotoxinlaser (Hydro 📢 (talk)Hydro) and i'm a collaborator from the german Dragon Quest Wiki.
I want to ask, if it is possible to agree upon a cooperation between your DQ Wikia and ours.
That will mean, that we can exchange informations and screenshots. Some collaborators from us can help in your Wiki and inversly, so both sides have advantages.
If you have questions you can answer this user blog.

I think we should have some people working on updating the class pages for DQ VII. It would help a lot of new players, as I can't find any guides that have the new class mastery milestones or the skills each level gets. I've added stuff for the Luminary class (I didn't keep track of most of the skills though) and the Mage Class.Read more >
A long time ago,
in a galaxy far far away,I asked if I could add a page for every Infamous Monster in DQ8. I was told I could make a list. I was dissatisfied, but didn't try to change it.
Now here I am, a long time after that. I have a recommendation for how to go about these infamous monsters. No seperate pages will be needed. What I wanna do is: In the Dragon Quest VIII section of every page about a monster with an infamous version(s), we can add the info about said infamous monster(s).
This would be something like this:
Untamed name: Pain the the Neck
Tamed name: Sippy
((insert basic stats here))
Monster team combos: The Drack PackRead more >
Hurrah! Bot status was achieved.
Greetings, Dragon Quest community!
This forum thread is here to discuss the possible bot addition to the wiki for YogsBot. I was summoned by Ellis99 from the Community Central wiki and thought I'd help out.
I will follow all instructions by Ellis99.
It means that the bot's edits will not appear in Special:RecentChanges or Special:WikiActivity. Because of this, I'll make sure that all edits are documented (just in case of conflicts that might occur).
AutoWikiBrowser and other custom scripts.
An administrator can switch off the bot by blocking YogsBot. If you're not an administrator, you can contact the VSTF to have it blocked.
Please leave a message of approval (or any questions) regarding the bot!Read more >
A forum has been created to vote on the change, Forum:Admin/Ideas/Talk Page to Message Wall. Have your input and vote!Read more >

THIS IS WHERE I SHILL MY STREAM FOR DEM TWITCH BUX
so, currently i'm waiting on the PSN store in europe to update so i can (hopefully) buy DQH. i should have enough money (most new games are £50) but if i do not then i will get enough money on my PSN account. when i do get DQH, however, i will be livestreaming it from my ps4 over on my twitch .
EDIT: Aparently it's going up on friday (aka my birthday) so i'll be streaming it on the saturday and sunday then. well ****.Read more >
i've had so much to do IRL, that i've left my post as admin for so long. due to this, i would like to say a huge sorry. however, i will be soon 19, or a legal adult in my country for an entire year, so i will be (most likely) staying at home playing the new DQ heros game as much as i can. until then, or rather until i've beaten the entire game's story,
below i will list everything i've done (or rather should have done and have not), and why, as well as what i've done outside of the wiki. is most of this excuses? yes. should i give up my position? probly. honestly, i was thinking of giving someone extra admin rights before i left for this looong hiatus.
during april through june, i had a hellava lot of college work to do, so most of my time…

I have been debating with myself on maybe having a monthly news blog for this site. How do users feel.Read more >
Reports have been coming out left, right and center about VII & VIII being released in the Western market.
EDIT: A new monster for the remake of VIII has been leaked also.
EDIT 2: XI will be an offline game compared to X, were the player would need internet to continue with the game.
EDIT 3: In VIII, players can take pictures and also, there are new quests called "Photo Quests", were the player is tasked to take pictures of rare monsters and hidden items.Read more >
I, being not too bright, was adding a whole bunch of pages to catagories, when I added Gadrongo to the dragons catagory. Then, after checking on Dragon Quest IX, I found out he was, in fact, not a dragon. Is there anybody who's smarter than I am who knows how to remove pages from catagories?Read more >

Dragon Quest Wiki is currently going through a revamp with categories to make it easier to search through when looking for weapons. That's all.
EDIT: 08/06/15 - 11:11 - Template:NotableEnemy is being added to boss pages. Treasure and Skills sections on Legacy Boss pages have been revamped.
EDIT 2: 09/06/15 - 16:47 - Remember, we have userboxes too! so customise your userpage to give it a good impression about yourself!
EDIT 3: 16/06/15 - 18:39 - Dragon Quest: Souten no Soura, the manga series, is being created.
EDIT 4: 16/06/15 - 19:39 - Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibōken is being separated in manga and anime pages so it can be differentiate.
EDIT 5: 17/06/15 - 09:58 - Navigation templates for other manga's are being created.Read more >
Can you join it? If you're interested in them, then here you go.Read more >
Yes, that's right. Dragon Quest VIII is coming to 3DS in Japan on August 27 of this year. This makes all Dragon Quest games in the main series being on a handheld device in one country and all. Lets hope it comes overseas.
EDIT - 13:12: There will be a new scenario and new party members (a Thief called Red and Morrie, from Monster Battle Road)
EDIT 2 - 13:13: The Thief is a female and it will support StreetPass. Voiceovers will be in it too.Read more >
Recently, I have been thinking of the reason why we have the spoilers template. I understand that hiding info that proves vital to the games being hidden but, do we need them? Comment on your thoughts of abolishing the spoiler template.Read more >
Hey everyone, and welcome to Sage's monthly update! This is a post that will hopefully come out on a monthly basis and is a general update on where the wiki is, where the wiki is going, where we want the wiki to go and what we're doing about it. So, let's get into it!
So, where do we want to get? Well, below I've made a start on where I think we should be aiming for long-term.
1. Featuring the wiki. Featuring the wiki is an all-round benefit, as it advertises us on WIkia Central, which receives millions of visitors per day. To do this, we need to a) Have an accessible main page, which due to the efforts of Ellis99 we now have, and b) Cut down the number of stubs to 770 and the maximum.
2. Ressurecting the wiki chat. The wiki chat is a valuabl…

I believe we need more walkthroughs for the Dragon quest games I saw only 1 and Im wanting help with another :P I do not plan to make a walkthrough myself but I will if I have to...ill just need to edit it sometimes to add more stuff in since I still haven't beat the game 1 time yet.....Read more >
seriously. due to new US laws, if we edit a wikia, we're breaking the law. the maximum fine is $50,000 and 20 years. do you want to have to worry about that?Read more >
Hey all, Kingemocut 'ere. being an adult sucks. seriously, it sucks bad.
Since september last year, i started a college course. the marking body, being so full of wisom that they are, changed the rules. now, to give them credit, their new changes are good for their perpose, but they do shaft those of us with learning disabilities. last (school) year, i was doing a different course, and i was able to resubmit my work as much as i could, now i can only officially resubmit it twice. and that SUCKS. so, long story short, TIFU (and by today i mean over the last two terms) and i've fell so far behind because of two different assignments that i'm happy i stratigically changed courses for the 4 A Level equivilents, because if i didn't …

Due to the inactivity happening at Dragon Quest Monsters Wiki and the fact that that wiki has info on Monster, I feel that that wiki should merge with are's so this wiki can become bigger and better wiki for Dragon Quest fans all around.
Also, give your opinion in a comment too.Read more >
I've decided that I'm going to create som wiki divisions for us all. Essentially, it catergorizes users into groups depending on what their specialties are. So, without further ado, here it is!
Eternity Wizards: These people handle all of the spells and abilities
Masters-at-Arms: These people handle all of the weapon pages.
Guardians of Legend: These people handle all of the armour pages.
Sages of Science: These people handle all of the alchemy pages.
Gods of Infinite Benevolence: These people are the epic Gods of the wiki that bend space and time (they do formatting)
Well, here it is! Enjoy your fancy new name(s)!Read more >
Wow, it's been a few months, hasn't it? I've been meaning to come back here, but honestly I've become the queen of procrastination in everything.
and also Homestuck. Homestuck has a tendency to take over peoples' lives.
I'll get back to editing soon, but probably not today, seeing as it's Mother's Day. I may even do a quick runthrough of IX to refresh my memory on things, and perhaps actually play Joker. I've had it for months, but I don't think I made it past the first island...
Anyway, how are you guys?Read more >
As you may already know, there is a game that is similar to Final Fantasies Theatrhythm coming out as Theatrhythm Dragon Quest.
This game is to be released in Japan soon but it would be nice to see it come here to the Western market.
What are you opinions on having it in the Western market? Do you want it to come or do you not? Vote on the poll below and comment on you opinion.Read more >
I've been away for ages, no secret there, on vacation over summer and I didn't find much time to be on here in that time.
Right before I vanished I was looking into ways to get more users onto the wiki. I tripped over a way to do this by getting featured on the main ikia site. This would mean millions of users looking at this wiki every single day-there ought to be a couple that decide to join us.
When I went to request the featuring I was told by the admin in control of that that, in order for this to happen, the wiki would have to become more friendly to first-time users, in essence simple enough for an autistic monkey to understand. To do this, it was suggested that there be an array on links on the main page to take a user to …Read more >
Okay, I need to get active.
I've 3 days until I have to return to work, so expect me to play some Dragon Warrior Monsters. I'm going to attempt to beat the next three Gates and unlock whatever secrets appear after.
Also, I've been working on a spreadsheet for a future Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 Team.
I'd like you to help me figure out what monsters I should use.
So far I've made Ability Paths for a Mertiger, EvilArmor, and MimeSlime. I hope this to be my main team, but I've also decided on trying to use a CloudKing, RainHawk, and DarkHorn. If you can't tell, I've a theme going on! PIRATES AND PLUNDERERS! THESE ARE THE KINGS (HAHA!) OF PIRATE'S BAY!
The spreadsheet can be found here if you happen to be playing the games for nostalgia.

Why is this wiki so similar to Dragon Quest.org? The templates look the same and a lot of the information is exactly the same.Read more >
So, while i was doing other life stuff away from Dragon Quest Wikia, i was still doing stuff for us. we all know that it's a few users that are editing this wikia's pages, but a lot of pages are, quite frankly, incomplete, especially with articles that are not Dragon Quest 9.
so, i've asked a facebook group if we could affiliate with them. not any facebook group though, but one dedicated to Dragon Quest 8. it's small (only 153 likes as the time of writing this) but every little helps. they said they're willing to do so, and i hope you guys don't get annoyed at me for doing this.
anyway, i'm sorry i've been lurking more than workin, but when life gives you lemons, make combustible lemons.Read more >

other then that, here's a list of all the admins that have been inactive for at LEAST a year [from sept 17, 2014):

after scrolling around the wikia features, i found the ability to make interactive maps, for both real and fictional places! this could be a real use for us, as it could make an interactive map of each world/dungeon, and instead of having to look at multiple images, just look at and read from one! should we add it?Read more >
recently, wikia has added the option for creating templates in Lua, a freeware, medium-level (to learn) scripting language, used in anything from games (roblox is a well known one, as well as Angry birds, Garry's mod etc.) to Software (such as VLC Media Player [a great freeware alternative the Windows media player] and Teamspeak, [a freeware, VoIP [voicechat] software]. It would help those that create templates work in a better inviroment for adding what they'd want, but it can also be a powerful tool for trolls, if they know Lua.
this bog post is gonna ask YOU if you think we should add Lua support to our wikia, or not.
the ask me later one is there if you're unsure, but you want to see how other wikias that use Lua turn out.Read more >
i wanna know what you guys think. should we demote some of the admins that are often away from the wiki, and if so, who should take their place? i won't make a thread about who to demote, or who will take their place just yet, but i wanna know. should we?Read more >
First off, I'd like to apologise for being away for at least two weeks. I've been on holiday.
The best thing about that holiday? I found DQM: Joker in some game store! I've literally just started it and I'm leaving the title screen playing...that music's beginning to get annoying.
Um...so, how do I play it? o.o
