How to Complete A Right Riddle Sidequest in Dragon Quest XI
Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is a massive game, even for a legendary RPG series like Dragon Quest. As you journey across the world of Erdrea, there’s any number of optional things to take up your attention, whether it’s uncovering hidden treasure or knocking out a few of the game’s many side quests. One such side quest is called A Right Riddle, and you’ll get this one in the second half of Dragon Quest XI, after the big story event, when you return to L’Academie de Notre in Champs Sauvage. It can be a bit tricky to solve, so we’ll help give you the answers.
In the library of the L’Academie, the librarian will give you two different riddles to solve, and the solution is equipping your hero with the right weapon. For the first riddle, all you need to do is equip a simple Steel Broadsword, which you should have in your inventory if you’ve been collecting weapons, or it’s easy enough to forge. The second riddle is more complex, however, as you’ll need to equip a Fizzle Foil. This sword can be bought from the weapons shop in Gallopolis, but the second half of the game restricts your Zoom ability. You’ll either need to travel by foot to Gallopolis in order to get your Zoom ability back for the location or progress the story enough and you’ll be able to go there automatically.
Once you’ve equipped both weapons, you’ll pass the tests and clear A Right Riddle, and get a tidy sum of Mini Medals as a reward.
