Chateau de Sass & Best-Dressed Contest Guide - Dragon Quest 6

Chateau de Sass Map Location

Château de Sass is a small town in the northwestern portion of the Real World which can only be accessed by air (if you can fly over mountains) or by an underwater tunnel using Lorelei's Harp. This town is where the Best-Dressed Contest aka Fashion Show takes place.

The Fashion Show uses the 'Style' attribute that you get from your equipment and will reward you with prices depending on your current Style rank. In order to increase your Style you will want to equip specific pieces of gear that give you high Style points such as the Platinum Gear or the Legendary Gear.

You can also increase how much Style you get from each piece of gear as well by visiting the Fashion Forge at the southern end of the Real World map. There is a string of islands down here and the Fashion Forge is found on the central one. Once you visit this location you'll be able to Zoom here by selecting the 'Fashion Forge' from the list of Zoom locations.

There are other ways you can increase your Style too such as by speaking with the Bunny Lady in Turnscote (pictured below) for a one time 5 Style upgrade and by using Pretty Betsy items which you get throughout the game for 1 Style each.

You'll find the Bunny Lady pictured above in the same building we originally found Mo the Mole in/the same building the Magic Key Door is found in. As for the Fashion Forge, expect each Style upgrade to cost you a lot of gold, for that reason you should only upgrade the items you're positive you plan to use in the Best-Dressed Contest... Or plan to grind longer for more gold.

In addition to the above ways to increase your Style you can also increase it by raising the Luminary Vocation to max. While your character is a Luminary they'll receive an additional 15% Style and mastering the Luminary Vocation will give you a permanent bonus of +15 Style Points. Luminary isn't the only Vocation that changes your Style either...

Vocations that Alter Style:

1. Thief & Merchant -20% Style
2. Dancer & Hero +10% Style
3. Gadabouts +5% Style
4. Luminary +15% Style (& +15 Style Mastery Bonus)

Note: To unlock Luminary you'll need to master the Gadabout and Dancer Vocations.

Each rank of the Fashion Stage is split up by Gender, Men can participate in the majority of ranks, Women can participate in one and there is one rank for Monsters. Sadly the hardest one to complete of them all is Rank 7 which is the one with the best reward (Sage's Stone) since it requires you to enter on a monster.

Your best choice when it comes to entering a monster is to use Goowain. In order for Goowain to win the contest you'll need some of the most stylish equipment in the entire game and to grind him A LOT. Goowain will need to max the Luminary Vocation to stand a chance of winning the Sage's Stone which means you'll have to grind a couple hundred battles with him.

What I recommend is you take out two birds with one stone and grind Goowain's Dancer, Gadabout and Luminary vocations while getting him EXP for the Slimopolis Side Quest. To complete each rank of Slimopolis you'll need Goowain to be levels 35 - 40 anyway.

For more information about the different ranks and which rewards they give you check out my list below. Further down this page I will talk about some useful gear combinations that you can use on each character to boost Style.

Best-Dressed Contest Prizes:

Key: Level: Gender - Req Score to win (Reward)
1: Anyone - 180 Score (Silver Platter)
2: Men Only - 200 Score (Trailblazing Bandana)
3: Anyone - 220 Score (Plush Rug)
4: Women Only - 250 Score (Glass Slippers)
5: Men Only - 280 Score (Platinum Headgear)
6: Anyone - 310 Score (Shimmering Dress)
7: Monsters Only - 260 Score (Sage's Stone)
8: Anyone - 360 Score (Happy Hat)

Once you complete rank 7 of the contest Kingsley, an optional party member will join your party if you speak to him.

Sages Stone Obtained

As mentioned earlier in the guide, aside from the gear you equip you can also raise your Style in a few different ways. Below you'll find a list of all the ways you can permanently increase your style for your characters that don't involve you constantly rotating through all of your gear. I mention all of this earlier in the guide but I prefer this format for quick referencing.

Permanent Style Boosts:

1. Fashion Forge (Southern end of Real World; he upgrades gear for Gold)
2. Private Pattycake Session in Turnscote
3. Pretty Betsy Items
4. Luminary Vocation (Master it + having it active both give Style)

Last but not least I will cover all of the different gear sets in the game and different gear combinations that you can use to win the contest.

Gear Combinations To Use:

This section will go over different sets and gear combinations to use to achieve your goals. I'd recommend you only use the Hero, Milly and Goowain in the Best Dressed Contest since these characters come with the highest innate Style. Additionally you'll want to master the Luminary occupation on your Hero and Goowain if you plan to win every round.

Goowain is required for the Sage's Stone round and the Hero is the easiest character to get extremely high Style on. If you plan to collect all 100 Mini Medals, Milly is pretty easy to get Style on too since the reward for all the Mini Medals is an item that gives 100 Style to girls.
