From Dragon Quest Wiki

Zammle is a spell in the Dragon Quest series. It damages a target with dark lightning, and is related to the Zam, Kazam, & Kazammle spells.


Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies[edit]

Zammle is available only to Sages at level 8. It costs 7 MP to cast, deals 50~80 base damage, and caps at 213~243.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Sages will learn Zammle at level 18 and Demon Swordsmen learn it at level 59, costing 7 MP to cast. Damage is calculated as Magical Might x 0.25 + 30 for a minimum range of 63~73 and a maximum range of 201~211. The firing range of the spell is 15 meters.

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

Rab will learn Zammle at level 33, not too long after he joins the heroes. It costs 9 MP to cast and it's base damage is 82~94. It's growth potential is rather low, capping out at only 105~110 at 238 magical might--likely due to it's base being slightly higher than Frizzle's. Like all Zam family spells, it has double the haywire chance compared to other invocations.

Dragon Quest Treasures[edit]
