Platinum king jewel

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
For the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Platinum king jewel (Vocation).

The platinum king jewel (originally PlatKing / Platinum King due to display constraints) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest VII, it is a gem slime variant that normally acts as the single largest source of experience in the games it appears in, above even that of the metal king slime.

Characteristics[edit]

Platinum king jewels are silver-colored versions of gem slimes. Like their golden counterparts, platinum king jewels are shaped like gems and have tiara-esque crowns.

Like other metal monsters, platinum king jewels have absurd defense, speed, and a notorious habit for fleeing from battles. Amongst their fellow metal monsters they typically have the highest HP, which usually means landing a critical hit is the only possible way to defeat one short of an obscene amount of good luck. Making matters worse is their ability to cast Dazzle to ensure that melee attackers never even get a chance to hit them, let alone defeat them.

This is the first game to introduce platinum king jewels (then PlatKing), being one of a few palette swaps of the gem slime. These monsters are extremely rare but yield more experience than any other monster in the game, including Metal King Slime. Additionally, the heart of a platinum king jewel can also be obtained as a mean of assuming that monster class.

Description The unrivalled experience of besting these hard-to-hit, Dazzle-dispensing diamonds makes them a dream come true.

They spend their days off with their metal king slime mates, gazing rapt at their reflections in their buddies' bulbous bodies.

Platinum king jewels are found in high leveled grottoes. As usual, they give the most experience in the game, however, they're rarer and harder to kill than metal king slimes, so the latter is usually the most farmed.

Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime[edit]

Blingaling appears to be a platinum king jewel.
