From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Vault is a special location which appears in Dragon Quest series. It is a place where the player can store gold and items to be retrieved at a later time. It was removed in Dragon Quest VI (and remakes of some of the older games) in favor of using a bank and The Bag.


Dragon Quest III[edit]

The vault is located in the town of Aliahan in the same building as Ruida's Tavern. It charges a calculated amount of gold to retrieve other items which are stored there. This cost is based on item value. Rare items cost only one gold coin.

One particularly common item to be stored in the NES version is the Golden claws, as it causes repeated enemy encounters when in the possession of the player. However, it is quite expensive to retrieve after being stored.

Dragon Quest IV[edit]

The vault is available only in chapter 5. Torneko's wife runs the vault in the town of Endor. While storing and retrieving items still costs gold, each item is stored for 10 gold coins only.

Dragon Quest V[edit]

The vault is available only after the main character becomes an adult. Vaults can be found in the towns of Oracleberry and Port Selmi.
