Dragon Warrior II Guide > Walkthrough > Tantegel

LOCATION: The castle town of Tantegel is not difficult to find from Lianport. Head east from the port town, then follow the coast and stick to it as it wraps to the right and leads up to a channel. You should see a castle surrounded by swamp, so head left and up around that small coast from there. Across the shore from the swamp-logged castle, you'll find a shore upon which rests the castle city of Tantegel.

With the ship in your possession, the percentage of the world you can explore has radically increased. In fact, the sheer number of options can be overwhelming. Though the paths you can take are many, the game will nudge you in certain directions. For the most part, this guide will follow that nudging, so that you can grow more powerful as the game requires.

Presently, your first priority should be to save. Though Lianport doesn't have a place to save, the nearby city of Tantegel does. Follow the directions above to reach this new destination, rest up at the inn, then save with the man at the House of Healing.

Now that you've taken care of the essentials, it's time to relax and get to know the city a little better, as well as its surrounding regions. Look at the weapons shop to see if anything catches your eye. The only new items are the GIANT HAMMER and the STEEL SHIELD, both of which are gear appropriate for the hero but none of your other party members.

Though the people in the town are bemoaning their loss of a king, you'll find him upstairs in the weapons shop. However, a door is in the way, and you won't be able to open it until you have the gold key. I recommend battling monsters outside of town until you've raised the gold to buy the best armor and weapons for the hero (yet again). This way, your levels should also raise slightly. You want to make sure the princess is at least to level 10 before continuing to the next area.
