Nose For Treasure is a recurring ability in the franchise. It checks the amount of remaining treasure in the current dungeon floor.


Dragon Quest III[edit]

Nose for treasure is learned by thieves, and is unavailable in the NES version.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

In the remakes, Torneko learns this at level 9.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

Learned by Sancho at level 31 and by Dwight at level 10.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

Nose for Treasure is learned by advancing to rank 7 of the Thief vocation.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

Same as in VI.

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

Yangus can use Nose For Treasure after allocating 16 skill points into his "Humanity" skill.

Notably there are two treasures (Mini medal and Seed of magic) that will later show up in some new vases in Argonia after The Bazaar relocates to a building between the Church and Castle, but Nose For Treasure will still pick up on them if used beforehand.

Dragon Quest IX[edit]

This ability is learned with 42 skill points invested into Acquisitiveness skill.

Unfortunately, it only checks the remaining red chests, not blue ones, severely limiting its usefulness.
