The Dragonlord’s Island

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Dragonlord's Island serves as the final location in the Dragon Quest Builders, where the builder must defeat The Dragonlord to undo the buidling-blocking curse laid upon the land.


The final island in the Builder's journey is also the epicenter of Dragonlord's curse. As such, it is a barren island, with a lot of ash, sand and rocks. It's home to some of the game's most powerful and intimidating monsters, like the Dread dragon.

Sidequests & Points of interest[edit]

Unlike the other islands, there isn't much to do here.

The gatehouse[edit]

Following the main path towards the castle, a gatehouse can be encountered. Inside, a battle with a Knight Abhorrent and Vis Mager awaits, and so does a chest containing a seed of life.

Challenge: The Dreamy King Slime[edit]

Located in the southmost area of the island, a lonely King Slime daydreams. If you have found the other three curious slimes in the Land of Ash and Despair, Tantegel moor, and Patchwork Island, the King Slime will give you a recipe. After receiving the Verdant Vision, he will reward the player with three gungerbread. And the challenge will be completed.

Chests inside Dragonlord's Castle[edit]

There is a chest containing three medicinal herbs past the Dread dragon.

Upon defeating said dragon, two chests will unlock: one containing an extra scare root, and another containing a ruby of protection.

Challenge: Defeat Dragonlord without legendary armor[edit]

Another challenge can be completed by defeating the Dragonlord's True Form without having the Auroral Armour or Hero's Shield in the equipment bag. To do so, just put them in the colossal coffer before going to face Dragonlord.

They can be used in the first phase, but they must be stashed into the colossal coffer before defeating the humanoid form of Dragonlord. The Sword of Kings can be used in both battles, using it or not does not effect this challenge.
