Estark's Labyrinth

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The fungeon of the fifth game is Estark's Labyrinth; the Template:Bonus Dungeon in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride hidden in Nadiria.

Full of many confusing passageways, the dungeon has bizarre, tropical plants through several of its levels. The eponymous extra boss Estark is significantly more difficult than Grandmaster Nimzo, even with a party leveled into the high 60's. Unlike Mt. Zugzwang, players can recruit monsters here; this is the only way to obtain a Hyperanemon and Barbatos.

Enemies in the area

Stark Raving T'n'T board

In the PS2 version onwards, players will have access to Estark's personal T'n'T board after defeating him. There are several powerful pieces of equipment and items available in the 70 turn board, but the real prize is Starkers--the forgotten son of Estark. He is an immensly powerful monster, and recruiting him unlocks Rebjørn at the Pothold near Stockenbarrel as well.
