"Actual", though really it's more that you get unlock keys whenever you go on the online shop. You'll get that in a few more hours I think.

I pretty much just have the last boss fight before I finish off the main story. However, I've been hunting slimes and all of my characters have 2 vocations in their 40s and a few others in their 20s. Before I go ahead and finish the game, I'm going to unlock the Sage class and do a few random quests, I think. Then on to the post-game.

Hidoshi: Walt Whitman could beat you with both dicks tied behind his back.

What's the post game stuff?
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Pretty much just more random fetch quests and monster hunter style random dungeon crawling.

Basically you just grind to fight all of the bosses in the grottos/maps.

It really is a blast. For some reason, completing useless sidequests and grinding has never been this fun. I think a part of it is the speed. The battles are fast enough that they don't ever feel tedious. I would reccomend it. Like I said, I have 60 hours on the game and I'm still going strong.

Also, I tried the final boss last night and it made it through the first two fights only to die on the last one. Back to the grinding board for now.

Good luck!

I still want to wait until it's cheap since I've never quite been fond of the Dragon Quest series (they're a patience tryer)., but I still appreciate the recommendation.=)

I know this is too late, but amazon offered it for $17 as a lightning deal for Cyber Monday.

I mean I wanna get it cheap when I have money. I'm broke right now.=P Thanks for the heads up, though. It was on sale at Target on Black Friday, but I missed it, unfortunately.=(
