Hero is an advanced vocation in the Dragon Quest series.


The Hero vocation draws on the power of heroes past in order to save the world. The Hero regains HP every round. The higher the tier level, the more HP regained. In order to become a Hero, one must master three intermediate vocations or two intermediate vocations and an advanced vocation. The player can also obtain a Hero Heart from defeating The Almighty in 19 turns or less.
