Item Master

From Dragon Quest Wiki
A female Elf as an item master, bottom right.

The Item Master (どうぐ使い) is a vocation added to Dragon Quest X in the version 2.1 update. It is a class focused on using tamed monsters to assist it in battle, but themed around a mechanic maintaining a automaton instead of the typical beastmaster type seen in the series.


The item master wears a gatsby cap with a set of visor goggles over the brim, and a mechanic's jumpsuit lined with pouches. Both garments use a vanilla and cream-orange pinwheel pattern, and the outfit is complimented with vermilion boots and gloves.

The item master is similar to the Monster Master in that it has a constant companion to aid it in battle, only it focuses exclusively on inorganic monsters. These come from the Material family and Mechanical families, giving them a more narrow focus but several options to choose from therein. Aside from the use of monster, the item master is an excellent support vocation that can contribute greatly in conflict even if their pet is incapacitated. With access to the best augmentative spells, the item master can give even the weakest party member a major tune up.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Item masters can equip Hammers, Spears, Bows, and Boomerangs. They can equip most shields and wear lightweight metal armor in addition to clothing-type armor.
