Heights of Loneliness

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Heights of Loneliness is a dungeon in Dragon Quest IX.

It leads up the mountains near Dourbridge to Zere Rocks. There is a cottage at the base of the Heights. Many routes in this area are vines, the Hero need to climb along the vines to access another area or platform.

Zere Rocks[edit]

Zere Rocks is a stone replica of the town of Zere in Dragon Quest IX. It is located at the peak of the Heights of Loneliness. It was made exclusively by a sculptor named Mason. The only house that can be entered is the same house where Petra lives, who was also Mason's wife. A Slime lives in the house now. Also, the basement is in perfect state, unlike the one in Zere that has crumbled.

Name Origin[edit]

Detail You accepted Odval's challenge at the Heights of Loneliness. She wants you to use Toxic Dagger to envenom three Hocus chimaeras and polish them off with Poison alone.

Quest #113 - "Hoarse Whisper"
Location Heights of Loneliness - Entrance
Availability With a Level 15 Ranger in your party.
Requested by Odval
Fulfilled to Odval
Reward Nomadic deel
Detail Odval at the Heights of Loneliness says that a true Ranger must be able to talk to the animals. She wants you to attract the attention of twenty beasts by angering them, and then calm them down again with Soothe Sayer.
Hint for solution Keep hitting monsters until they get angry. Boss monsters are good targets because they are not as easily to beat as normal monsters, so remember to cast "Soothe Sayer" when they get angry. Use Whistle and Eyes on Me to enrage monsters faster.

Another alternative if you don't have Whistle and Eyes on Me, go to slurry coast and fight Bewarewolf's. During battle whenever a character gets "damaged" cast a healing spell on them. 80-90% of the time the Bewarewolf will become enraged with the healer. You can then cast "Soothe Sayer" on it.
