Crack

Jump to: navigation, search

Crack (formerly known as IceBolt) is a recurring offensive spell in the Dragon Quest series and the first in the Crack family of ice spells. Introduced in Dragon Quest III, it has become a staple commonly learned by Mages and other users of offensive magic in the series.

Crack is often depicted as a sudden growth of ice crystals that cut into a single enemy. The crystals become larger, more abundant, and far more chilling in appearance as the spell family advances, often extending its target range along with its power.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest III[edit]

Crack is learned by Mages and Sages at level 5, and deals 25~35 points of damage for 3 MP.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

Crack is automatically known by Borya at level 1, and deals around 10~16 damage for 2 MP. The reason for the lowered damage output is the concern over difficulty balance in the beginning of the second chapter.
