| Platinum king jewel
|Introduced in||Dragon Quest VII|
Platinum king jewel (formerly PlatKing) is a monster who appears in the Dragon Quest series.
Platinum king jewels are silver-colored versions of gem slimes. Like their golden counterparts, Platinum king jewels are shaped like gems and have tiara-esque crowns.
Absent from the original release, Platinum king jewels appear as monsters in the enhanced remakes' bonus dungeon alongside several other monsters from Dragon Quest VII, a game that preceded the enhanced remakes.
Platinum king jewels (then PlatKing) are first seen, being one of a few palette swaps of the Gem Slime. The heart of a platinum king jewel can also be obtained as a means of assuming that monster class. Additionally, these monsters are extremely rare and have a high experience yield.
|#229 - Platinum king jewel|
|Game Appearance||Dragon Quest IX|
|Dropped Item|| Platinum ore (common, 1/8)|
Seed of skill (rare, 1/256)
|Description|| The unrivalled experience of besting these hard-to-hit, Dazzle-dispensing diamonds makes them a dream come true.|
They spend their days off with their metal king slime mates, gazing rapt at their reflections in their buddies' bulbous bodies.
Platinum king jewels are found in high leveled grottoes. As usual, they give the most experience in the game, however, they're rarer and harder to kill than metal king slimes, so the latter is usually the most farmed.
A strategy to defeat them is make Spear or Axe omnivocational in every party member. This will make them to learn the Thunder Thrust/Hatchet Man abilities, that sometimes will critically hit them. Also, equip Meteorite Bracers to each party member to make them faster, because Platinum king jewels have high agility.
