Jawtoise (vocation)

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Jawtoise is a class in the game Dragon Quest VII.


The Jawtoise is a deranged looking hybrid of a sea turtle and an alligator. It offers a moderate increase in strength and a great increase in resilience but serious drops in all other categories. At rank 8 the class will give a weak resistance to frizz, sizz, bang, woosh, and crack. It also grants a strong resistance to all status ailments but Sap and Drain Magic.

Monster Heart[edit]

The Jawtoise Heart can be found in the Dwarf's Den in the Buccanham past. It can also be won in the Lucky Panel game in the casino. Finally, it can be obtained by defeating the terrible terrapins in the Coral Cave in both the past and the present.
