Jack's Knack

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Jack's Knack is an ability in the Dragon Quest series. It channels the "Voice of Vocations" to enable class changing on the field.


Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies[edit]

This ability is learned with 10 skill points allocated into Enlightenment skill. Players will still need to return to Alltrades Abbey in order to revocate a level 99 character, however. Jack's knack costs 4 MP to perform, but the magic points will not be restored if a vocational change is cancelled.

The skill is handy for inexpensive healing, as the HP and MP of a character scales to the level of that vocation. As such, a weakened character can go from a high leveled vocation to one of a lower level, be healed with a Medicinal herb, and then change back to their original vocation with the amount of HP restored scaling to the higher leveled profession.
