Knights Of Xentar Solve
Knights of Xentar (KOX) is the IBM PC version of the Japanese game, Dragon Knight III. The Japanese game is the third in the 5-game series.

Anime (Japanese animation)
Megatech games contain graphics done in the Japanese cartoon style known as Anime. Anime art is easily identifiable because of the
exaggeration in the size of most characters‘ eyes and other body
parts and the use of bright hair colors.
a) Slow the battle speed whenever you encounter unfamiliar monsters.
b) Avoid offensive tactics until you have accumulated hit-points and armor.
c) Avoid combat if you are wounded and are not carrying any heal potions.
Talk to everyone in the game. Everyone has something unique to say
even after you finish your quest.
Read the background story on page 36 of the manual to better understand the game.
Q. Can I ever go upstairs in the inns without talking to the ladies?
Q. I can’t get out of Squalor Hollow and I have no money to buy clothes.
A. Go northeast to the bar and rescue the girl. Then, go see Frump on
the west side of town.
Q. Is there any way to recover from kissing the magic medal?
Q. Where is the hermit in Dreadsden?
A. Dreasden is the only town in Xentar where you can actually walk
alongside the „outside“ of the village wall. Specifically, walk
into town and immediately turn west walking alongside the outside
face of the wall. When you get to the corner, turn north and you
will find the hermit’s hut.
Q. That boulder to the south of Squalor Hollow — any way to move it?
A. You can’t but Rolf can. You’ll find him in Phoenix.
Q. Will Tymm ever try to eat me?
A. You must have the Mystic Marble and the Magic Mirror. You must also save Clara from the wolf and talk to the Dark Knight staying in the Coventry Inn.
NOTE: In version 1.08 (look at the CD inner ring for the version)
there is a Tymm logic bug allowing you to get inside Visel’s
cave without the Mystic Marble but then never letting you get
past Tymm. If you have this problem, download the patch:
Q. The staircases in the Castle of Kalist! What should I do?
A. First, go down the upper-right staircase,
Then, come up the bottom-left staircase,
Finally, go down the bottom-center staircase.
If Luna is missing, then you’ve solved the staircase puzzle
correctly. Otherwise, you must exit the Castle and try again.
The staircase puzzle is deactivated for an easy return upward.
Q. I defeated Haggis but the Castle entrance caved in! How do I get out?
A. Find the other door next to the caved in entrance. Enter and take
the Demon key inside. Step out and go east and walk straight through the demon head hanging on the East Room wall.
Q. Do I need anything in Nero’s Retreat to complete the game?
Q. I’m in the Canine Caverns but I can’t find the tuna liver lumps?
A. Look for a dark spot on the cavern wall. There’s a secret
passageway in the southeast corner on the first level and
another passageway in the center of the second level.
Q. The hungry guy in Moronvia ate my liver lumps but he’s still awake.
A. Leave town and come back in.
Q. I defeated Deimos. How do I end the game?
A. Warp to Arcadia. See Aquarina then go see the princess.

The two jar makers can also provide you the solution to the nine-staircase trap. Here, however, you must visit both Arl and Marcy without having visited the other which means you must save and restore your game.
