Alltrades Abbey is a large temple where characters can change vocation in Dragon Quest IX. It is similar to the ones found in prior games, but this was the current localization its name was changed to Alltrades Abbey and not Temple of Dharma. It is located in the center of Newid Isle.

Alltrades Abbey has an Inn, a church and a merchant, and after Abbot Jack is rescued, the party's vocations can be changed. Later still, the ability to revocate is unlocked.

Story[]

When the hero reaches Alltrades Abbey, he/she finds that you can change your vocation here, but Abbot Jack (the Vocation changer) is currently missing. You speak with who seems to be the leader of these people. He says if you want to change vocations, go talk around with people. You find a man who has recently changed to the Martial Artist vocation and gave the Abbot Jack a golden fruit. Then you go back to the Head Priest and he tells you to go to the person who the Abbot eats with. You go down to see a woman who explains that every day she cuts the Abbot's fruit.

You then go back and the Priest says he may have gone to the Tower of Trades and that the only way to get in is to use the bow party trick. He teaches it to you and you go to the Tower of Trades. When you reach the door, you bow and it opens. When you reach the top, the Abbot Jack is there, sending a prayer to the almighty, that he may learn to guide his flock better. This causes him to change into a power-hungry monster known as the Master of Nu'un (This is a pun on his name, Jack of Alltrades, Master of Nu'un [none], as he is the Jack of Alltrades, but the master of none).

The Master of Nu'un says he will defeat you and conquer the whole world, thus guiding his flock better, but by force. You engage him in battle and when he is defeated, he changes back to his Abbot Jack form and heads back to the Abbey. When you get there, he offers you free vocation changing. This is the ending to the story of Alltrades Abbey.
