Tips and Tricks for Beginners to Dragon Quest Builders 2
If there was ever a game where tips and tricks for beginners was almost a necessity, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is it.
A hybrid of JRPG norms and Minecraft’s iconic crafting and building gameplay, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is almost literally overflowing with content.
There are enemies to battle, structures to build for NPCs and secrets to uncover at the farthest corners of the map.
And that’s only covering what’s offered by the core game. Past the main story, there’s still the prospect of creating and crafting whatever you want to make, from towering monuments to quaint and cozy cottages.
It’s a lot to take in, and if you don’t know where to start, it can be incredibly overwhelming. That’s why we’ve laid out a few key points to keep in mind when you get started to make sure your experience is the best it can be.
Progress Through the Main Story as Soon as Possible
While it may be tempting to strike out into the world and build your next masterpiece as soon as possible, you’ll likely find yourself coming up against materials you can’t break, areas you can’t access or enemies you can’t match up against.
This is because Dragon Quest Builders 2 is designed with a far larger emphasis on story than Minecraft or other games like it.
Sure, it wants you to build big and outlandish creations to your heart’s content, but only after you’ve embarked on the usual JRPG adventure of saving the world from evil and restoring peace and balance to all of existence.
To that end, several key items and recipes are blocked off until you complete the main story, including the ability to store items, break harder objects like rock or metal, and traversal items that make exploration much more tolerable.
As such, you’ll want to finish up the main story first and foremost, and as quickly as possible. This will ensure you aren’t wasting time trying to break something down or access an area that would otherwise be unlocked by the main story.
