Arcadia Region

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Arcadia Region is an area of land in Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.

It is accessible north of the Kingdom of Argonia and has a cavern leading to Blizzard Peaks.


The Hero and party happen upon the area early on, but are turned away as the guards are suspicious of Trode.

They are able to proceed further after the guards are attacked by an unlikely threat.
