Here’s a short guide in obtaining dragonballs and using them wisely, there are some wishes you can make, not all of them are as useful as you would like.

I’ve been playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse for quite some time now, and one of the goals I’ve set for myself is: Obtaining the dragonballs multiple times and make all wishes. This is the easiest way in obtaining them:

access the Parallel Quest counter and select Parallel Quest #2, “Prepare for the Attack of Saiyans!” This quest takes you to Kami’s Lookout where you must battle against Krillin, Yamcha and Tien.

Defeat the three Z-fighters, but do not proceed through the portal into the next area. Instead, head to the doorway that leads into Kami’s Lookout. Here you have the chance to find a Time Patroller waiting there. Defeat the Time Patroller, and with a bit of luck on your side, you’ll receive a notification indicating that you have obtained a key item. The key item is one of the seven Dragon Balls.


There are a few different ways you can partially increase your chances of obtaining the key item. You want to defeat Krillin, Yamcha and Tien as quickly as you can. The faster you can take them down, the better. Do the same for the Time Patroller that appears, and make sure to end that fight with a Super Attack or Ultimate Attack.

If you do not see the notification that you obtained a key item, access the pause menu and restart the mission. This allows you to try again as quickly as possible and save time. If you do get the notification that a key item has been collected, head through the portal and complete the quest to find the item in your inventory when you return to Tokitoki City. If you fail to complete the quest you will not receive the Dragon Ball, even if you received the key item notification. Get the key item notification and complete the quest seven times to collect all of the Dragon Balls and summon Shenron.


Once summoned, you can select a wish to obtain any of the following:

I want money!
Get 500,000 zeni

I want a rare item!
Get an accessory, with the chance of the Power Pole Accessory


I want to dress up!
Journey to the West Outfit Set (one item from the set)

I want to get stronger!
Items to Craft Z-Souls

I want to grow!
Increase your character’s level by one.

I want a new Ultimate Attack!
Obtain the Blitz Hell Ultimate Attack (1st time) or the Minus Energy Ball Ultimate Attack (2nd time).

I want a new Super Attack!
Obtain the Flash Bomber, Drain Field, Lightning Ruin and Air Consumption Super Attacks (1st time) or the Castrol Lightning Dragon Bullets, God Speed Light Bullets, Whirlwind Spin, and the Sleepy Boy Box Super Attacks (2nd time).

I want more useable characters!
Unlock Super Saiyan 4 Gogeta (1st time), Super Android 17 (2nd time) and Omega Shenron (3rd time) as playable characters.


I want a second chance at life!
Reset your skill points so you can apply them to different categories.

I want to be drop dead gorgeous!
Ability to change the look of your created character.

While some of the wishes are useful like: more useable characters, respeccing your skills, and gaining a level up. Others are more cosmetic like: a new outfit, a new accessory, and changing your look.

There are some other ways in which you can get more Super and Ultimate attacks, you could buy them in the store or you could train with one of the mentors.
Each mentor gives you 4 attacks with the last one being a Ultimate attack, here’s a list of all mentors and their skills:

If you were able to eliminate all Saibamen, you have a chance to trigger the special event, which is Nappa and Raditz coming to fight you again, allowing Vegeta to recover. Now defeat all three of them one last time to get the equipment. If you didn’t get the Z-Soul, do it again.

As you can see there’s a lot to unlock in Xenoverse, and even more coming with upcoming DLC’s. Make your wishes wisely, recovering the dragonballs is time consuming and you wouldn’t want to use it on a cosmetic feature. In my opinion you’d best go for the extra characters to have a larger roster at your disposal.
