Prickly Wilds

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Prickly Wilds are the second area in the Rimuldar region. The introductory section is a palmtree filled plain that rises into hills in the south and western reaches, but the coastline seen in the further south is what gives the area it's name. This section is filled with tingleweed, the incredibly dangerous flowers that cause paralysis upon contact. Numbness is a recurring theme of this area, with the killerpillar doing their best to infect the Builder.


This is the first region of Rimuldar where the player can encounter healthy palm trees and, thus, wood. This lush jungle contains many dangers such as paralyzing plants and monsters, or confusing scarewolves.

Sidequests & Points of interest[edit]

Getting the fishing rod[edit]

Following Nosh's quest to the second Q mark below the mid line of the map, there is a ruined fishing hub is where a friendly bodkin archer spends his time fishing. His hut is damaged, but if it is restored he will teach the Builder how to create a rod of their own and how to cast like a master.

World map[edit]

A little bit to the east from the fishing hut, following the river, an earthen tower can be seen. There is a chest containing the world map in the top of the tower.

Protected room[edit]

When going towards the fishing hub from the teleportal, players might notice a brick room with a locked key. Upon returning to this place after learning how to produce keys in later parts of the Rimuldar chapter, players can obtain a pair of featherfall footwear, an accssory that nulls fall damage.

Challenge: Fix the roof of the ruins[edit]

Deep inside the mountains to the west of the blue teleportal, there is a ruined mansion with a broken roof. There is a note on the top of the mansion asking for someone to fix the roof with the materials in a chest nearby. Filling the holes with the appropriate roof parts will award the player with the recipes to make roof tiles on their own.

Challenge: Thalamus's quizz[edit]

This is the second part of this challenge. It is located north from the ruined mansion, west from the blue teleportal. The challenge in this region is extremely simple: players just need to plant a palm seedling in the exposed earth block to solve it. The two chests in the front contain gold and a blue block.

Bodkin archer's houses[edit]

There are three wooden towers in the jungle that serve as homes for paralyzed friendly bodkin archers. Aiding them with tingle tablets and they will reward the builders with gold, a seed of life and x50 thowing stones.

Bewarewolf's temple[edit]

In the western-most side of the island players can find an temple with two evil idols at the entrace. Some friendly bewerewolves and a tearwolf reside in it. Talking with the leader -the tearwolf-, will allow the player to learn how to make defuddle drops, which help cure confusion. If the player returns to the tearwolf after making some defuddle drops in an herbalist's cauldron -unlocked a bit later in this chapter's story-, he will award the builders with a ring of clarity, which prevents confusion if equipped.

There is a gold ring on the top of the temple.
