Main game appearances

Dragon Quest IX

DQIX - Minstrel

In IX, the Hero/Heroine always begins the game as this class. It has limited healing and damaging spells on top of the ability to wield fans, swords, whips, and shields.. Minstrel is a fairly balanced class, partly because all of a minstrel's stats improve each level, whereas only some of the other classes' stats improve on each level-up. Their Coup-de-Grace is "Rough N' Tumble," which increases evasion and counterattack chances.
