Q. can i change the Protagonist’s appearance?
Some gear sets change how you look, but the hero is stuck with that haircut for the entire game.
Q. which camera style should i use
The default camera where you can freely move characters sucks and doesn’t affect how battles play out, change it to ‘Classic’ for much more cinematic fights.
Q. Do i Need to Play DQ i-x?
No, this has a few connections here and there to older Dragon Quest titles, but like Final Fantasy each entry is pretty much its own thing.
