The official website for Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past is now open, and it offers a wealth of information on what our characters and monster buddies will be capable of. In addition to a detailed vocation section, going over the jobs party members will be able to take, it also talks about how making friends with monsters can help you find tablets that you can use or share with other people online or via StreetPass.

 

In Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past, you can visit Alltrades Abbey to switch a character’s class. There are over 30 vocations to earn, seven of them basic and immediately available, and mastering them gives your characters permanent abilities and spells.

 

Here’s a list of the 15 vocations shown on the Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past websites, as well as the requirements for them when available.

  • Armamentalist: an advanced class unlocked by mastering Mage and Warrior. It has higher than average strength and MP.
  • Hero: A master class that automatically allows the character to recover some health each turn.
  • Gladiator: An advanced class unlocked by mastering Martial Artist and Warrior. It makes it easier to land critical hits.
  • Jester: A basic vocation available at the outset.
  • Luminary: An advanced class unlocked by mastering the Dancer, Jester, and Troubadour classes. It lets you freeze enemies.
  • Mage: A basic vocation available at the outset.

As players go through Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past, they may meet disguised monsters who want to live peaceful lives or battle monsters that want to be friends with them. After a certain point in the game, a The Haven settlement will open, where these creatures you’ve met will gather. Each one you find will give you a traveler’s tablet. Monster Meadows is another friendly monster home, where creatures attracted by any monster munchies you have in your inventory may go after being defeated. When you head to Monster Meadows, you can send one leader monster and two helper monsters into a specific cave to retrieve a traveler’s tablet.  These tablets can then be used to enter randomly generated dungeons.

 

The traveler’s tablets given to you by monsters can be shared. If you StreetPass someone sharing a tablet, it will appear in the Monster Meadows cave. You can then send a trio of monsters in to claim it. The Haven’s Download Bar also will also have traveler’s tablets shared online. Going through one of these random dungeons and sharing them with a monster via StreetPass will help level up that creature.
