Dragon Quest Wiki

Words of Wisdom ('Words of Wisdom' in DQTR) is a book in Dragon Quest III and a recurring item in the Dragon Quest series, the first of a series of Vocation-changing items.


Dragon Quest III[]

Making its debut, this book is used to change a level 20 character of any particular Vocation, directly in to a Sage, though it cannot be applied to Erdrick.

A character who is currently a Gadabout does not need the Words to turn into a Sage, though it takes a bit of leveling up to do, being table to change only after they are level 20. The Words of Wisdom are found in the Tower of Transcendence, just north of the Alltrades Abbey while another one can be found in a house at Rimuldar in the GBC remake.
