"Can the remnants of our past lead us to a future...?"


Dragon Quest: Legacy of the Lost is a fangame highly inspired by Dragon Warrior 7. The game will feature the shard system and time travel aspect found in Dragon Warrior 7. The underlying story, however, is not the same and besides the time travelling portion, no plot sequence will be taken from Dragon Warrior 7.

STORYLINE:
“Join a story that spans the ages! Through a series of seemingly unrelated events, a young man finds himself in the middle of a divine conflict. Picking up allies along the way, the man will confront the darkness and bring back the legacy of the lost!”

The world of Araginol is at peace… or so it seems. As far back as the people of this land can recall there is little in terms of land. The continent of Erdrich is all that has been discovered by seafarers and captains of the seas…

“How can this be? Is it truly possible that the world be so small?”

Unknown to the people of the current era, Araginol had once consisted of several islands and continents. Through the power of the demon lord, the islands that occupied Araginol fell one by one, eventually leaving no remnant of their passing.

Just when it seems Erdrich has been spared from this tragedy, several unfortunate events begin to plague the land. It is up to you, the hero, to traverse the rifts of time and save the world from evil’s vile clutches!

- It was impossible to clear the achievement “This is Yardrick (Past)!!!” if you cleared the present arena first. This has been fixed.
- When crossing a certain area in the shrine, Aldain’s graphic would reset to default regardless of costume. This has been fixed.

- Various typos have been fixed.

If You Are Playing an Old File (Notice):

*If you are playing from an old version file:*

Even though the level cap has raised to 60, your level will stay at 50. In addition, any skills learned from the new version will not be learned naturally as you level.

However, you can still “level” past 50 and gain all the skills you missed! For files registered as old, several new NPC’s have been added in the Great Shrine. Head the where the saint’s plaque was located to find the ghosts of your past heroes. NOTE: Olian will only appear if you managed to recruit him. Also, when you clear the game, a monster ghost will appear that will grant an exclusive armor called monster mastery to replicate the effect of leveling from 50-60.

Leveling Up:
Each ghost will present you with a log item (Hero’s Log, Mage’s Log, Maiden’s Log, Cleric’s Log). When you use the item, it will perform a level check on how much experience is needed to reach level 51. When you hit the required experience, using the item will play the level up sound, display your stat changes and permanently increase your stats. The stat gains are exactly the same as if you had played the new version normally. Next time you use the item, it compares your EXP to level 52 and continues all the way to level 60. Note: If you gained a lot of excess experience past 50 on your old file, you may/will need to use the item multiple times to gain all of your hard-earned level ups!

Acquiring Missing Skills:
Each ghost will present you with a skillset item (Hero’s Skillset, Mage’s Skillset, Maiden’s Skillset, and Cleric’s Skillset). Using the item will replace your old skills with the new ones (Maiden’s Skillset also works if your old file caused Melody to be missing some arcanist spells). The game won’t inform you of changes, so check the charts below to see when you should use the item (it has unlimited use).

Hey there! Here is all of the relevant information for that sword. Is this the combination you've been trying?

Deathbringer = (purchased from early game shops. I'm pretty sure Yardrick has).

Double Edge = Algol (purchase mid-game shops) + Copper Ore x7 + Megaslime Dropx1, Gold Ore x2

Apocalypse = Double Edge + Deathbringer + Megaslime Drop x2 + Great Scale x2 + Golden Thread x 3

Apocalypse should appear in the alchemy list with those ingredients. I don't recall ever having it not show up before. I don't think I made it only appear if you were on Melody's Relic Weapon quest, but it sounds like you are. In order to do her quest, you have to talk to the old man in Erdrich Castle Town and listen to his story and obtain the ??? necklace from the present unmarked beach in Yu'Tolio. It is possible that is required for Apocalypse to since the relic master will ask for it, but I don't think so.
I don't know if the maker will see this but i just wanted to say i really like this game you did a great job! I do have another question if anyone can help but I'm trying to make the Apocalypse sword so i can make the best two handed sword in the game but when i go to craft it it is not showing up I'm on the quest to make it and everything do i have to beat the game first?
I found an error in the unknowns & extra guide. To make the Hermes Hat, you need a feathered cap, green bandana & 2 golden feathers not 3 great feathers. I know that because I just made one. So either the guide is wrong or the game has got it wrong.

I don't think Orias wants it spoiled (since Ghostbane basically trivializes the remainder of the game).

If you search through the previous comments, they revealed that the winning combination uses all 11 monsters, one of the final breeding pair, and which 3 optional monsters you should recruit. That plus the Secrets PDF should be enough.

One more piece of the puzzle I feel comfortable giving - 5 years later - without stepping on the author's toes:

The other final monster in the breeding pair is, IIRC, Beezelebub. Which is less helpful than it sounds, both because I might be remembering wrong, and because you've still got some work to do to figure out how to breed those two penultimate monsters at the same time.


Thank you! That was the info I was missing!

Sorry for literally ASKING for spoilers,but what is the combination of monsters I need to breed in order to get Ghostbane? I haven't seen anyone else give or get a straight answer even though the game's been out for years...

Wait...so the final patch is the full game? Sorry, I kind of got confused which file to download. I downloaded the most recent one that said it was a patch and it works.Sorry, I'm not used to downloading games on this site...


Yes, the final patch is the full game and last version. :)

Hello, I just downloaded the final version of the game and when I launched it, the title screen was missing the the options (new game, load, stuff like that) it was just a black box with nothing in it. I hit the top option and then it took me to a black enter your name screen (I think) with no letters. I really want to play this, and was wondering why this could happen? Am I supposed to download the patch as well?

This was such a great game - just as fun as an official title. I highly appreciate its making.

Will there ever be a sequel? I realize that would probably take a crazy amount of time to pull off.
Hi there! I am glad you enjoyed the game. :)

At this time, I haven't really thought too much about a sequel. I have had some ideas of what a sequel would look like and even come up with a partial story, but ultimately, I haven't put any real work into it.

I had also thought about making the sequel a Tactics style game like Tactics Ogre or Final Fantasy Tactics instead of traditional Dragon Quest. With monsters/DQ classes, I think it would be really interesting.

A sequel is still really unlikely, I'm just too busy at this time to work on another one.


To me how I saw you make the game while I was testing it I was wondering if you would make a DQ Monsters, but with a twist on it somewhat and heck that idea sounds quite interesting but VERY time consuming.

Sup Orias! :D

I don't see a sequel happening however it is possible to try for a Dragon Quest Monsters version.

At last, I beat post game's final boss, I had a good time, thanks.
And I believe DQLoL is as great and fun as official DQ games.

I know this is a late reply, but I just now noticed the guide about monster breeding, and I totally missed out on the slime. Hopefully, I can go back and get it, but, more importantly, I wanted to know if there's a picture list of all the monsters, or at least base monsters, that you can get. I'm new to Dragon Quest and I'm very curious, as the monster design matters to me more than whether or not the monster is "good."


Hey there! For recruiting slime, unfortunately he is flagged as missed if the boss of the Rhemhage Region has been defeated.

As for the graphics of the monsters, I put an image of them in a zip file that you can get here. This is the "Pictures" folder of my project and it should have all of them.

One of the first games I've downloaded on here. I bet it still holds up too.
Hello there, great game so far, kept me entertained for lots of hours, well done.
One question: Where do I find the Bane Ring for Melody's Arcane Benison? The guide does not mention it anywhere.
Also in the guide some monster combos are missing. for example, Dracolord can also be made with Hargon + Protomech. I'm kinda undecided about monsters since I can't really tell which ones are the best, I thought that BOSS breeds would be, but the stats of Hargon aren't really higher than the White King, and the White King can equip the Agonizer, can BOSSes equip those legendary accessories?

EDIT: Nevermind I found out that bane ring is crafted with Brass Ring + Black gem, I had totally forgot about that shop in Lindebourg.
EDIT 2: Nevermind, I reached the post-game final monsters from the arena sidequest. I guess whatever you breed doesn't really matter in the end, considered how overpowered that final monster is.
