The Gringham whip is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest series. It is usually one of the strongest, if not the strongest, whip in the game and often has the ability to attack all enemies instead of a single group.

Characteristics[edit]

The whip has had three distinctive designs throughout the series' history. In the Super Famicom versions of III, V, and VI, the Gringham whip had a beautiful silver and gold handle with a filigree design, decorated with various red and blue gemstones, and featured three lashes with deadly blades at the ends. The second design, featured in VII, as well as remake versions of IV, V, and VI, consists of a blue and teal-colored handle with three lashes, each with a sharp arrowhead-shaped blade at the end, as well as another arrowhead-shaped blade on the end of the handle. Starting with VIII, the Gringham whip now had a red and gold handle and three teal cords braided into a single lash with three arrowhead-shaped blades at the end, along with one of the same blades on the back of the handle. This was done in order to have all whips in the game have the same attack animations.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest III[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +105, and hits an entire group. It can be wielded by the Hero, Warriors, Thieves, Gadabouts, and Sages. One can be found at the Dragon Queen's Pachisi Track, and the other is found in the Secret Dungeon. It only appears in remake versions of the game. In the mobile version, it is the final prize obtained from the mini medal collector in Aliahan after turning in 100 medals.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +125, and hits an entire group. It can only be wielded by Alena, Maya, and Meena. It can be obtained by collecting 60 mini medals and is only available in remake versions of the game.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +100 and can be equipped by Bianca, Nera, Debora, Harry, and the daughter, as well as various monster companions. It can be purchased as a Casino prize for 250,000 tokens. A diligent player is able to obtain the whip as early as the events at Fortuna if they earn enough tokens. It can be sold for 10,000 gold (15,000 in the original Super Famicom version), but it is not recommended to do so.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +145 and a style of +57. It is the strongest weapon in the game and can be found in the Underwater Palace.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +145 and a style of +57. It is the strongest weapon in the game and can be obtained from the Medal King for 105 medals. It can be equipped by the Hero, Maribel, Sir Mervyn, and Aishe.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

The Gringham whip has an attack bonus of +127, and is easily Jessica's most powerful weapon. Unlike other whips, it can attack all enemies instead of a single group. It can be purchased as a casino prize at Baccarat for 200,000 tokens. In the 3DS version, it can also be equipped by Red.

Dragon Quest IX[edit]

The Gringham whip is rarely obtained from S rank treasure chests in high-level Grottoes. It grants an attack bonus of 118, and is unique among whips (besides its upgrades) in that its basic attack will hit all enemies instead of a single group. However, Whip skills will retain their group restrictions. It can be upgraded into the Mega Gringham Whip and further into the Giga Gringham Whip, if not the Über Gringham Whip.

Gringham whips cannot be bought in stores, and therefore have no buying price. They can, however, be sold for 20,000 coins each, but it is not recommended to do so, as the odds of obtaining another one are slim, as warned by shopkeepers when selling rare items.

Dragon Quest XI[edit]

The Gringham whip is obtained in the Octagonia casino for 750,000 casino tokens. It grants an attack bonus of +96 and a charm bonus of +22. It cannot be upgraded. It has the ability to hit all the opponents in group and retains full damage while doing so. It can be upgraded into the Mega Gringham Whip, Giga Gringham Whip, and the Über Gringham Whip. Veronica and Sylvando can equip it.
