5 Helpful Dragon Quest Treasures Monsters You Can Meet Early on

5 Best Dragon Quest Treasures Monsters You Can Meet Early on

You’re just getting started in Dragon Quest Treasures. You want solid allies. Well, there are a lot of good ones in the game! Frankly, I think you could be fine with anybody in your crew, so long as you have one with the Glide Forte and another with the Launch one. But if you want to know some fun Dragon Quest Treasures monsters you can recruit in the first five to ten hours, these are allies you may want to make your new best friends.

It’s important to note that the Fee isn’t always the same for each monster and can vary based on quality. The moveset and traits can also vary, depending on the monster’s quality and level. Also, most monsters are found in multiple locations. I’m noting where I got the ones I recruited. So if you find and manage to scout a King Slime, there’s no guarantee it would have the same recruitment fee, abilities, or traits as the one I found and mention below. However, it should still be a good ally.

Dread Dracky

Possible Fee:
Forte: Glide
Notable Possible Spells and Abilities: Gnoxious Gnashers (damages and possibly poisons), Kasap (decreases all enemies’ defense), and Shocking Swirlwind (damages and possibly paralyzes).
