The Prayer Ring (formerly Wizard Ring) is a recurring accessory in the Dragon Quest series. It's designed to recharge MP on use, but has a 33.3% risk of breaking. It is a tiny gold band with a cloudy blue pearl fixed on it.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest II[edit]

The Prayer Ring can be found in various chests and is the second-prize reward from the Tombola. It can be sold for 1950, but this isn't recommended. When used it will restore 25~30 MP in the original, and 20~27 in the remakes.

Dragon Quest III[edit]

The ring can be found in various chests, or bought in the Faerie Village – but only if the party uses the Mod rod to change shape first. The faerie shop keeper will charge 2500 for a ring and buy them back for 1875. The ring will restore 10~34 MP in all versions, and is is strongly recommended to stockpile them in advance of the final leg of the journey.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The Prayer Ring is a normal item in the original version of the game, but classified as an accessory that increases defence by 5 in the various remakes. and restores 20~30 MP when used. In the original 8-bit version of IV the ring will always break when used in battle. The Prayer ring in the DS, Android, iOS remake can be bought at Endor's casino for 500 coins and it can be sold for 2250 gold.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The ring will restore 20~30 MP, but is eclipsed by the more potent Elfin elixir.

Dragon Quest VI[edit]

VI is the first game in which the ring is classified as an accessory, owing to the vast increase of equipable ornaments. It increases defence by +5, style by +22, and can be worn by Milly, Ashlynn, Terry, and the Hero. It restores 20~30 MP when used.

Dragon Quest VII[edit]

The ring's fashion factor has dropped considerably for some reason in VII, increasing style only by +3. It still provides +5 defence, and anyone not named Kiefer can equip it. When used it will restore 20~30 MP and, in the 3DS remake at least, its chance to break has been reduced to 12.5% (18).

Dragon Quest VIII[edit]

A ring that restores some of the wearer's MP when used as an item.

The prayer ring can now be purchased as a normal item in the Argonia bazaar without having to meet any odd requirements first, with merchants charging 9000 for it. It increases defence by +5 once again, and restores 20~30 MP.

More importantly, the ring is a vital ingredient in several alchemical recipes.
