The Venus' tear is a recurring item in the Dragon Quest series. It is a beautiful blue gemstone in the shape of a goddess's teardrop.
When it first appeared in Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, it was an important key item, but it became an accessory in later games in the series with differing effects.
|A beautiful gemstone shaped like a teardrop.|
In the past, Yangus himself promised to obtain the Venus' Tear in hopes of impressing his fellow thief and friend, Red. Though he originally feared the Labyrinth and was unsuccessful in obtaining the gem, he found himself following through on his promise as part of the Hero's party when their friend Medea (trapped in the form of a horse) was obtained by Red through a series of events in Pickham.
If you get the gem before visiting Red, Yangus and the party will not present her with it until you leave Red's Den and return to it. Storywise, Yangus explains to the party that in order for them to get Medea back, Red must believe that they obtained the gem for her benefit rather than lucking upon it.
The Venus' Tear has a Defence bonus of +2, a Style bonus of +25, and reduces damage taken from wind and lightning attacks by 20%. With accessory synthesis, it can gain a small boost to max HP and the Style and resistance bonus can be increased.
- In the Offline version of the game, the tear has a Charm bonus instead of Style.
