Effect Bonus damage to undead

The Zombie slayer is a powerful sword that deals extra damage to creatures from the zombie family. It looks like the Zombiesbane sword, but is more powerful and has a red hilt instead of blue.


Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King[edit]

The zombie slayer has an attack bonus of +65 and deals an extra 60% damage to ghosts, zombies, etc. Makes dealing with Dullahans much easier. The Hero and Jessica can equip if the latter has enough points invested into her knives skill tree, and the effects of Flame Slash stack with the innate trait. This makes any specter vulnerable to fire take tremendous damage.
