Mini medals are a huge part of Dragon Quest IV DS as they give you some great rewards. So far I’ve got 60 of them. I’m not exactly sure where the rest are but I’m guessing I’ve missed some and the rest are waiting for me as I build town up. Not exactly a big issue as I’ve got all the gifts I could possibly get as you’ll see after the break.
As for the actual rewards you get these items from King Minikin’s Dominion (accessible via ship during Chapter Five):
|Gift||# of Medals Collected|
|Ruby of Protection||20|
|Staff of Divine Wrath||30|
|Liquid Metal Shield||52|
All of these items are useful but by far the best item has to be either the Liquid Metal Shield or the Gringham Whip, both of them I received after doing parts of Chapter Six as I didn’t have enough medals.
As I’ve said in my last blog there’s a section on the Dragon Quest IV walkthrough that has some of the locations of these medals. If you need further help then I’d also strongly recommend you to read an in-depth guide (like snkupo’s one on GameFaqs) but I can see the problem there as you won’t know which medals you’ve missed!
Anyway happy hunting!
