House of Prophecy

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The House of Prophecy is a shrine located between Mamon and Havre Léon in Dragon Quest IV.

Within it is Nun the Wiser (a pun on the phrase none the wiser), who predicts the gathering of the Chosen Ones, as well as the resurrection of Estark. She is mysteriously killed before she can fully speak Estark's name, but Torneko's Party Chat states that she very literally vanished before the party's eyes instead. In the DS and Cell phone version, if she is not spoken to after having all of the Chosen party members in the party and after defeating Estark, she will not be dead and will give a new prophecy for the party.

Be patient.
When you are sunk in the depths of despair... then shall your true journey begin.
