1000 Needles

From Dragon Quest Wiki

1000 Needles is a skill that appears in the Final Fantasy series as well as in Dragon Quest Tact. It is one of the signature abilities of the Cactuar, letting loose a prickly barrage of one thousand needles from its thorny body at the target.


1000 Needles can be learned by Cactuar at level 42 and costs 64 MP to use. It has a range of up to three squares away from it and inflicts 1000 fixed martial damage to a single enemy (Damage can be altered by any changes to martial potency). Upgrading the skill reduces the amount of MP it costs to use.
