Dragon Quest Builders is a fun action-role playing game. If you know how to play and navigate through it, that is. Like any other video game, it can be a little daunting if you don’t know what you’re doing and if you’re clueless about how to take on the challenges you need to get through to advance in the game.
Well, I have a solution for that. Here is a countdown of the best DQB guides I found on YouTube. Let’s take a look:
Starting the countdown of the best Dragon Quest Builders guides on Youtube is this video by Rick Rod Gaming. This video shows you a walkthrough of the different towns in Dragon Quest Builders: Cantlin, Rimuldar, Galenholm, Tantegel and Tierra Incognita. It will familiarize you with the characters, creatures and interesting places you can see in the different towns in the game. So if you’re a newbie, you’ll no longer be clueless about playing. As a bonus, Rick also teaches you how to locate hidden clues and search for creatures that you need to kill. Definitely worth watching.
This guide is very useful for beginners. Electronic Moose teaches you 11 starter tips to get you through your Alefgard adventure. Here, you’ll learn how important it is to build a wall around your town right off the bat and why you need to gather and carry basic materials from the start. Also, do you know that working on your main story quests will help you unlock new recipes, tools, and even skills? Uh-huh, you read it right. Well, that’s just some of the tips you can find in the video. So make sure to watch it till the end to learn more secrets and techniques. Who knows what techniques you might need later on.
Building is what literally DQB is all about. So the first thing you need to do is to get comfortable in your new world. How do you do that, you ask? By building a home, of course. If you’re clueless about that part, no worries. This video will show you how to do it, step by step. Here, you’ll learn the basic steps of creating your home as well as the building and rebuilding of rooms and landmarks. Of course you’ll also learn the materials needed to build your home. So follow each step carefully to create the kind of home you want.
Running out of materials to make single blocks while you’re building something can be frustrating. If you already know what to do, then it’s probably a no-brainer. But what if you don’t? Well, here’s a guide that will teach you how not to run out of resources when making single blocks. It will show you how to duplicate blocks to make the building process smooth and simple. Don’t believe me? Then you’d better watch the whole video to see for yourself.
Since you’re in a world where people have forgotten how to build, it’s your job to teach them and do some building yourself. So after you build your house, the next thing you need to do is start building your town’s defenses. Surely, you don’t want to make the town vulnerable to the enemies. Think you already have it down pat? Well, if not, this video will show you how to build your town’s defenses to keep the enemies at bay. You’ll learn the tools and equipment needed to build those defenses up and how to prevent the monsters from breaking the walls down.
Now it’s time to get the Enemy Miner Trophy. It’s a fairly easy to attain. You just need to put in some work. In order to get this trophy, you’ll need to build a wrecking ball or a TNT bomb. Because the only way you’ll get this reward is by killing eight enemies at once. To achieve this you’ll need to find weak enemies – in this case, the Slimes. Here, you’ll see the Slimes getting lured into a hole and bombed in the end. Sounds easy enough for you? Then try it for yourself.
Do you know how to grow trees in Terra Incognita? Some gamers actually tend to struggle in this area. So if you’re one of them, you’ll know that it’s crucial to learn how to grow trees and keep them healthy in this chapter. While planting them is easy, growing them is another thing entirely. So watch how the player in this video managed to plant and grow his trees in no time. Look closely so you’ll figure out what you did wrong in the first place.
How do you slay a Dragon in DQB? It’s fairly easy, in fact. That is, if you know how. The secret lies in the strategy you use. If you’re not having any success in killing a dragon, then it’s likely that you’re doing it wrong. Which means you need to change your strategy, pronto. So how do you do it correctly? Well, this guide will teach you how – from learning the dragon’s attack patterns to dishing out your own counter attacks. Pretty informative, if you ask me.
There are three dragons in Cantlin that you need to kill. You already know how to kill the first one. How about the other two? Finding all of them can be tricky. The path to these dragons has many twists and turns, to be honest. So don’t be surprised if you find yourself getting lost in the game. But don’t fret. You can easily prevent that from happening. By watching this guide, you’ll learn the directions that are needed to take to find and slay the remaining dragons. Remember this: you’ll need to kill all the dragons in order to move to the next chapter. So pay attention.
Last but not the least – and definitely the best guide in this list – is the Tantegel Speed Achievement guide. This particular challenge requires 30 days to achieve but the player in this video managed to do it in just 14. If that’s not impressive, I don’t know what is. Watch how he passed the last challenges in Chapter 4 and got rewarded with the Titan of Tantegel trophy in the end. Pretty neat, huh?

We’ve definitely rounded up the best DQB guides around. From building a house, to growing trees, to killing dragons and even achieving a speed test – you have everything you need to make your DQB journey successful.
