Desert Bazaar

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Desert Bazaar is a location in Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen.

As a nomadic market, it can be found only in Chapter 2, when Alena, Borya and Kiryl pass through. After that, it moves on to parts unknown though one merchant takes residency at the inn of Aubout du Monde as of Chapters 5 & 6.

In the remakes, the bazaar site is used for the Pioneer Town in Chapters 5 & 6.


Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen[edit]

The Bazaar itself is just a marketplace, with the main plot point being a Zamoksvan soldier telling Alena that Tsar Stepan has fallen ill. The regular attendees of the Bazaar will mention rumors of the Birdsong nectar, which Alena learns will cure her father's ailment.

Remake changes[edit]

  • In the NES version, the soldier informing Alena to return to Zamoksva to help the Tsar will be present upon entry into town. In the remakes, he doesn't show up until the party has the Thief's Key.
  • Prior to the Pioneer Town opening up in Chapter 5, the field will still be accessible, but empty save for a woman and a sign post.
