From Dragon Quest Wiki

Starstrike is a whip skill that attempts to dazzle a group of monsters with a blinding light.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

Starstrike is unlocked by investing 35 points into the whip skill tree. It differs from most whip skills by targeting a single enemy with the physical strike itself, but the burst of light-elemental energy also damages surrounding enemies for 40% of the initial strike's total. The dazzle effect can last for up to one minute.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]

Starstrike can be learned by Veronica and Sylvando through the Whips panel in their character builders for 14 and 6 skill points respectively. However, Veronica is only able to learn the skill after her character builder has been expanded in the third act. It costs 5 MP to use and deals 110% light damage to one enemy group, with a 25% chance to dazzle each target.

Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End[edit]

Jessica will learn Starstrike upon reaching rank 2 in her whip skills, and it costs 11 MP to use.
