Dragon Quest IX Guide Weapon Skill Tree

There are 14 weapons in dragon quest IX. This table gives the description what each skill does since the game doesn’t allow you to see it before you take the skill (CMIIW). There is also one hidden skill in every weapon, to obtain that you must do special quest which is intended for that weapon. Refer to side quest section for that.

Use CTRL+F then type ” WST weapon name” to search quickly (i.e. WST sword).
Enjoy, hope it is useful

    Holy pastafari, why doesn’t google show you on top of ALL search queries regarding Dragon Quest IX ?!?

    To hell with Gamefaqs, wikia and IGN ! I wish I had found mention of your website earlier.

    Man, you’ve got the longest tutorials per subject, they’ve got actual screenshots, and you don’t only copy the game descriptions when it could suffice, you add comments (for instance the extremely useful “must be cast first” line).

    I was on the verge of giving up on DQ9 after beating Corvus and reaching hard grottos, now the game has regained some of its promise for having more fun in the future – thank you very much for all the time you must have spent on it 🙂

  2. uberchamp95 says:

    thanks. now I know which skills i needs to kick the -bleeep- out of corvus as i have stuck to one skill for each character throughout the game. (hard as nails). i agree with crunchy though, you should have put the ultimate skills.

  3. bsamsr18 says:

    Hi

    i have got an uber falcon blade and i agree it is the best sword in the game i just want it with more damage. i have tied using falcon slash wlihe equipped with the uberfalcon blade but it just does 2 and it doesn’t do as much damage as the normal attack. im just wondering if it is something to do with my ds card or if i just cant see the other splats when u do damage.

  4. Van Lynn says:

    I’m sorry, but I really laughed out loud to the “positife” word in the Axe skill set. It’s supposed to be “positive,” for future reference. >.>

    • noobbgodlike says:

      lol it’s mistype lol, i know positive is the right word. Thanks for reminding me :D. The most important thing isyou laughed, right? my guides purpose are to help you and make you all happy :D.

  5. robin says:

  6. Mager123 says:

    Beelzefreeze isn’t passive

  7. Crunchy says:
