The Sage is an advanced vocational class in the Dragon Quest series.

Proficient with both weapons and magic, they are often the most powerful combatants in their respective games.


Dragon Quest III

To become a Sage, a character must have reached level 20 (a basic requirement for changing vocation) and met only one of the following:

  1. Train in the Gadabout vocation, or
  2. Hold a copy of the Words of Wisdom in their personal inventory.

In remake versions, having a personality that favours intelligence growth is recommended as well.

DQIX - Sage

The Sage vocation is obtained after completing Quest 115.

Quest #115 - "Sages in the Pages"
Location Gittingham Palace - Bookshelf in Gittingham Palace - L2 North
Available at Upon arriving at Gittingham Palace
Requested by Supreme Sage
Response to Supreme Sage
Requirement Kill 5 Great trolls with Frizz.
Reward Sage class becomes available.
Detail The Supreme Sage, who sleeps between the pages of a book on the shelves of Glittengham Palace, asked if you'd like to become a sage too. To do so, you have to finish off five great trolls with Frizz.
Hint for solution Great troll could be found in realm of the mighty. If you could tension up(egg on)your mage and use channel anger(to increase magic might a lot), that shall do the trick.

Sages have the unique skillset "Enlightenment", and can also use skill points to learn Boomerang, Bow, Wand and Shield skills. Their Coup-de-Grace is "Spelly Breath," which recharges a portion of their MP.

Mages and Priests should look to invest skill points in Enlightenment for the boosts to Magical Might, Magical Mending, Max MP, and the MP Consumption drop. This will boost both the effectiveness of their spells and the ability to cast many spells for longer periods of time without having to return to an inn or use an item.
