I have recently started playing Dragon Quest IX, and I was wondering if my party set up would be a viable one to play the game with. I'm just an hour or so after recruiting my party at the Inn:
- Me (Minstrel, going to become Gladiator eventually)
- Martial Artist
What worries me most is the lack of a dedicated healer. However, I initially did create a priest, and it seemed like he mostly didn't do anything, and was a waste of spot where I could have another damage dealer. I'm intending for my Warrior to dabble in Paladin, and as a minstrel I also have some limited healing, plus medicines.
Will this party make it through the game, or does strong healing become a requirement later on? Would it me enough to just have my mage switch to priest when I got to that point?
