Drain Magic is a spell in the Dragon Quest series. It absorbs MP from the target.
Drain Magic leeches 5~11 mp from a single enemy, and is learned by Magi and Sages at level 15.
Drain Magic is learned by Borya at level 25 and by Maya at level 16. It functions exactly as it did in the previous game in the NES version, but follows the (Lvl/4)+5 algorithm set by later games in all remakes and subsequent ports.
Absorbs 5~11 MP in all versions, and is learned by the following characters:
|Man o' war||40|
Drain Magic is learned by Ashlynn at level 14, and by Goowain at level 3. Other characters can learn it by advancing to rank 6 of the Mage vocation. The algorithm changes considerably this time around, and the amount drained from an enemy is calculated as (Lvl/4)+5. This sets the precedent for all future games in the series.
- The spell has been nerfed in the remake, using the formula of drained MP = 5~11 instead of DQ 6's formula.
Drain Magic is learned by Angelo once he invests 12 points into his Staff skill.
- In the 3DS version, Red learns Drain Magic at level 40.
Though not available to player characters, it is used by a number of spell-casting enemies. Each enemy also has a specific amount drained, with no random aspect as seen in previous games.
