Fortune Teller

From Dragon Quest Wiki
A female Ogre fortune teller

The Fortune Teller (占い師) is a vocation thus far exclusive to Dragon Quest X, made available during the version 3.3 update.

Characteristics[edit]

The fortune teller's default female outfit consists of a a fishnet lining that coversa black, sleeveless crop top and slides under an open lavender dress. The two garments are connected by a red sash over the woman's navel, with a larger tied sash hanging on her hips that terminates into yellow tassels. A cowl masks the woman's face, and a lavender head covering kept in place with a red band. For accessories, she wears torcs, wrist gauntlets, and a slender necklace capped with a red gem.

The male fortune teller wears a white hooded robe with golden trim, a golden sash, and a golden headwrap under the hood. He wears green pants with brown gloves and boots.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Fortune tellers may equip Swords, Spears, Whips, and Bows. Their unique ability is to use use tarot cards in battle to provide a variety of effects; 22 arcana with 78 variations per card that can be organized into a single deck of twenty cards. This gives the fortune teller 1716 options to choose from when assembling a deck.

Tarot cards[edit]

A hand of four cards out of the twenty card deck is drawn once battle commences. A fortune teller can choose to play that card or use their turn to shuffle it back into their deck and draw another card instead. In either case a new card is added to the hand so that four are available at any time. Each card has certain conditions that can double it's potency if met, noted by an aura that appears on the card.

Trivia[edit]
