Dragon Quest X[edit]

Lightning Conductor can be learned by Priests, Martial Artists, Paladins, Item Masters, and Guardians by allocating 35 points into the Spear skill. It costs 2 MP to use and inflicts 120% lightning damage to a single enemy.

  • In the Offline version of the game, Lightning Conductor can be learned by the Hero and Raguas through the Spears panel on their character builders for 3 skill points.

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below[edit]

Lightning Conductor can be learned by Kiryl by spending 6 skill points and costs 8 MP to use. When used, Kiryl will charge up his spear with lightning, then drives it into the ground to create a shockwave that zaps the surrounding area. Like all lightning-based skills, it can short circuit monsters from the Machine family.
