Effect Increases evasion

The phantom mask is a recurring piece of headwear in the Dragon Quest series. It is an masquerade mask that would go well with a black tuxedo, and increases the wearer's evasiveness. In certain games it is the fully upgraded form of the malleable mask and papillon mask, while in others it is a standalone piece of equipment.


Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King[edit]

A mysterious mask that allows the wearer to dodge enemy attacks more easily.

The phantom mask has a defence bonus of +48 and increases base evasion to 1/8th. It can be worn by Angelo in all versions of the game as well as Morrie in the 3DS port. The mask can only be made using the Alchemy Pot and can be sold for 29,000 gold.

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

The phantom mask does not directly improve evasion, such as the Dark robe does for instance, but it still contributes due to Agility being factored into the dodge rate calculation.
