The Merchant or Dealer is a class in the Dragon Quest series.


Merchants have the ability to pick up additional gold after a battle. The amount of gold is dependent on the types of monsters that were defeated. Merchants can also appraise items free of charge. In battle, merchants are only average in attack and defence, slightly better than a Priest.
