- A ridiculously rare orb of cornflower blue. Alchemise it! - Dragon Quest IX game description
The Blue Orb reappears in Dragon Quest IX as a very exotic alchemy ingredient, used for some of the highest alchemy recipes. It is a rare drop from Nimzo, Orgodemir, and (at certain level ranges) Nokturnus legacy bosses.
The Blue Orb is a royal treasure of Sniflheim. It can be gained in any order in relation to the purple and silver orbs, but it is meant to be the last orb acquired. When the Hero and party enter Sniflheim, it is frozen in ice. Only Queen Frysabel remains; the party agree to try and thaw the town, and the Queen agrees to give them the orb in exchange. After everything connected to the freezing of Sniflheim is resolved, the Queen rewards the party with the Blue Orb.
