dqixSquare Enix has a big update planned for Dragon Quest X scheduled for the end of February. Jump reports Dragon Quest X version 1.3 adds Sage and Gladiator, two of top tier classes, to the online RPG.


Gladiator has two-handed sword, one-handed sword, hammer, bare fist, and Sword Scar skills. This class can also equip a weapon in each hand which makes Gladiator one of the best attacking classes in the game. Sages have two-handed staff, bow, boomerang, shield, and Enlightenment skills.

    Now where’s my US release?!

    I wonder what other classes they have in mind. They want this game to be a 10-year long thing, so I’d assume they’d plan some more content.

    Maybe we’ll see the return of the Monster Taming?

    hope to see new classes we’ve never seen before and also European release

  • Sage sounds like the class for me. Boomerangs all the way!

      Specifically, Sage in Dragon Quest games are both Mages and Priests at the same time. Generally Priests are a bit better at group healing, and mages a bit better at group damage, but Sages have better single target and generally better mana management abilities.

      • Sounds like fun. I’ve only recently discovered how much I love being the healer through games like DQV, P4G and Tales of Graces (Sophie all the way!). Having the added ability of powerful magic makes it even more engaging.

    I’m sorry but I find a lot of Dragon Quest girls to be attractive. 1UP always says they have Goku sameface, but I don’t agree. His DQ stuff looks different than a lot of his other work.

      Well, technically it’d be Bulma face or SLump face, wouldn’t it? I think Toriyama definitely has a same face problem, but it’s not as though a lot of artists (in comics especially) don’t have that problems on both sides of the coast (I like how US gamers always forget that our comic artists have same face and same body problems like mad).

      He makes pretty gals though, I agree. It’s nice that both genders are good looking with him~.

    European release please Square Enix ! I want this and I’m sure I’m not the only one :)

    The same goes for Bravely Default and Draque VII :D
