Coburg checkpoint

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Coburg checkpoint is a location in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride.

It's a means for people of Whealbrook, Roundbeck, and Fortuna to travel to Coburg or vice versa.


Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride[edit]

The player first passes the check point during the final segment of the first generation, when the Hero travels with his father on the summons of the King of Coburg. As the two are making good time, Pankraz stops to enjoy the scenery with his son before setting off again--only to realize he's turned himself around.

Later on, when the Hero and Prince Harry have made their way back from the ruined Whealbrook, they are stopped by the posted guard and sent away. Recognizing the soldier as a castle guard he used to torment as a child, Harry reveals his identity and the guard explains what has happened to the kingdom in his absence. The two continue on unhindered afterwards.

  • Pankraz getting turned around on the checkpoint is based on players stepping on a stairwell tile when they didn't mean to. This worked better in the SFC version of the game, where the under pass exit was a stairway tile instead of an open tunnel.
