Lucky Dip

From Dragon Quest Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Lucky Dip is a skill that causes a character to goof-off instead of focusing on the battle at hand, performing wild antics for their own amusement. Some of these actions will help the party in battle, while others will reveal a hidden side of the user's personality. Most are flat out stupid, however, and waste the character's turn.

Appearances
