Dragon Quest VIII

The hero can use Thunder Thrust as a spear technique after investing 12 skill points into the associated skilltree. It has a 50% miss rate, a 25% normal hit rate, and a 25% critical hit rate. After investing 59 points, it is replaced with the more effective Lightning Thrust for a 50% crit rate.

Dragon Quest IX

This ability is learned with 58 skill points invested into Spear skill. It starts off with a 50% accuracy and has no improved version.

Dragon Quest XI

Serena and Jade will learn the skill through the Spears section of their character builders for 18 and 6 points respectively. It costs 4 MP to use and retains the 50% accuracy, but is now no longer effected by Dazzle and the target's evasion.

  • Jade will unlock Lightning Thrust for 16 skill points. It has a higher accuracy of 67%, and costs 9 MP to use.
