Kol

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Kol (マイラ, Maira) is a village in northeastern Alefgard. It appears in Dragon Quest and Dragon Quest III. It did not appear in Dragon Quest II like many other locations in Alefgard.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest[edit]

Kol is typically the third town the player visits. It is a quiet forest village with a large hot spring for bathing, and it does not contain any essential items for completing the game. The Fairy Flute is hidden four steps south of the bath and is useful for defeating the Golem outside Mercado, especially so in the remade versions of the game.

Puff-Puff[edit]

In the SNES, GBC, and smartphone versions, the hero can receive a puff-puff from one of the ladies near the bath for 20 gold. All references to the hero's indulgence and the woman's sultry behavior were removed from the original NES version as they were seen as too risque for a Western audience.

Dragon Quest II[edit]

As is the case with most of the towns/villages in Alefgard, Kol is not accessible in Dragon Quest II. Its location on the world map is covered with forest.

Dragon Quest III[edit]

Kol contains the item shop which sells the Sword of kings, which is the hero's strongest weapon in the original Dragon Quest III (but not in remakes). The sword is for sale after selling Orichalcum to the Zipangu shopkeeper and re-entering the village.

Dragon Quest Builders[edit]

In this game, Kol (along with Galenholm) consists of different areas that can be reached by using teleportals: the Ruins, the Island of Lava and the Island of Ice. The boss at the end of Chapter 3 is a magmalice and a firn fiend.
