Spell Bugfix

Hack of Dragon Warrior III


Dragon Warrior 3 has a bug relating to the order you acquire spells. It was intended that a wizard learns the weaker Icespears spell at appx. level 26 and the stronger Snowstorm spell at appx. level 32. However, the game erroneously has you learning Snowstorm at 26 and Icespears at 32. This was a detriment to the game because Snowstorm feels significantly overpowered at level 26, while Icespears is rather useless at level 32.

A week of extensive disassembly work was required for the author to sort through the routines related to the learning of spells. The solution itself came down to reversing just two bytes.

This fix will be already included in the upcoming retranslation / restoration patch: Dragon Quest III: Delocalized.
