| 1) Introduction to Metal Slimes |

In Dragon Quest VIII Metal Slimes are known as the most annoying characters
as they run
away quite often not leaving any time for real fight and this can become
quite troublesome
I hope to end that with this FAQ.

There are three types of Metal Slimes in Dragon Quest:
- Metal Slime (Common)
- Liquid Metal Slime (Un-common)
- King Metal Slime (Rare)Each The Rarer The slime is the more likely it is to run. Also because most
attacks do around
2 Damage to a Metal Slime this adds to the difficulty of defeating them but
there are ways around a Metal Slimes defense.
