The Perfectionist's pearl is a recurring item in the Dragon Quest series. It is used to improve the quality of items with the help of the Fun-Size Forge by reworking them, with the amount of pearls required based on the item's rarity. The pearls are obtained by successfully creating items with the Forge itself.
Perfectionist's pearls were retroactively added to the Offline version of the game, as the Fun-Size Forge replaced all other crafting systems from the original version. It is possible to acquire up to eight pearls from crafting a single piece of equipment, depending on both the rarity and the quality of the item created. Unlike XI, there is no other way to obtain perfectionist's pearls other than with the Fun-Size Forge.
Perfectionist's pearls are received each time the player successfully creates an item with the Fun-Size Forge, with the amount received dependent on both the quality and the rarity of the item made. Later in the game, the player can also purchase perfectionist's pearls for 100 gold each from the pearl boutique at L'Académie de Notre Maitre des Médailles and from the pearl salesman at Trial Isle in the postgame. Sets of perfectionist's pearls can be found in treasure chests at Hotto, the Laguna di Gondolia, and Phnom Nonh.
Unlike other items, perfectionist's pearls cannot be sold or discarded, with the maximum number that the player can possess is 9,999. If the player fails at forging a new item with the Forge, the item will still be made but no pearls will be earned. Perfectionist's pearls can also be lost if the player fails at reforging an item, but it will not be lost and remains at the same quality it was before attempting the rework. Pearls can be easily acquired by purchasing cheap materials at a shop then forging a piece of equipment with low difficulty that can easily be made at maximum quality.
