Black bishop (vocation)

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Black Bishop is a monster class available in Dragon Quest VII.


The Black Bishop is the monster equivalent to the Sage. Just like the sage, the cost of spells for a character is less than a regular class. The Black Bishop class offers great increases to magic categories and a moderate drop in Max HP.


In order to become a Bishop, a character must first master the Delusionist and the Bone Baron classes. A Heart can also be obtained in battle by fighting the crazed cardinals in the Cathedral of Blight.
