Overview & Review- Yakuza Like a Dragon Idol Job

yakuza like a dragon idol

The Yakuza Like a Dragon Idol job is the healing job. I don’t just mean it’s the best healing job, it’s pretty much the only healing job, and it does pretty much everything you’d want a healing job to do.

In terms of classic RPG archetypes, Idol is most similar to a Priest.

Idol is able to fully restore all allies’ HP, revive party members with full health and even inflict a variety of status effects. Most of its status effect inflicting skills are pretty forgettable, but it does get a powerful skill that lowers all enemies’ Defense and also attempts to inflict Charm on all enemies. That’s one of the more potent support skills available in the game.

Perhaps the biggest issue with Idol is that unless you’re in the final challenge dungeon, True Final Millennium Tower, or playing through New Game+ on Hard Mode, there’s very little in the game that requires the full arsenal of healing skills that the Idol has access to. Even the most difficult fights can be defeated just by relying on single target heals, items and the Musician Character Skill “Endless Desire”.

All of Idol’s offensive attacks are physical, which is somewhat unexpected and also somewhat of a wasted opportunity given that there’s lack of magic-based jobs available to females even though they get higher magic bonuses, in general, than most of the men.

Idol is exceptional at what it does, but it’s largely overkill for most of the game.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Idol Best Weapon

The best weapon for the Yakuza Like a Dragon Idol job is called the Celestial Microphone EX EX. Like all the best weapons, it’s obtained by upgrading a low level base weapon at the Romance Workshop in the Commercial District in Ijincho.

The base weapon you need is the Pretty Microphone, which you can buy from Dragon Kart Prize Shop for 200 points, find in the Yokohama Underground in silver safes, or earn from the Takedown quest for Chinese Mafioso.

To finish upgrading the weapon, you need a Revival Microphone, which you can win repeatedly from the 24th Floor of the Sotenbori Battle Arena.

Yakuza Like a Dragon Idol Accessory

The Job Experience accessory for the Yakuza Like a Dragon Idol Job is pretty easy to obtain. It’s called the Dreamy Signature. You can get one from Substory 30 or you can simply buy as many as you like from the secret shop in the Commercial District in Ijincho at the far Southwest corner of the map (Demolition skill required).

Since you can obtain multiple Dreamy Signature, Idol is able to equip two at once to boost its job experience by 2x.

Character Skills – Yakuza Like a Dragon Idol Job

Every job in Yakuza Like a Dragon has two specific Character Skills, which, once learned, can be used by that character no matter which job class they’ve been assigned.

For the Idol job, the character skills are:

Magical Voice: Restore an ally’s HP with words that can heal a broken heart.

Impish Wink: Give the enemy the sweetest smile and purest air kiss imaginable, which may leave them brainwashed.

Magical Voice is a decent enough skill. It’s not the most mindblowing healing spell in the world, but it does give your character a reliable single target heal so they don’t have to rely on items. It’s also really easy to obtain, since it’s available at level 4.

Impish Wink, on the other hand, is yet another of Yakuza Like a Dragon’s useless character skills. Night Queen gives you a skill that can inflict Brainwashing in an area and it also deals damage, so why on Earth would you ever want Impish Wink? Even the Night Queen skill is not particular useful, and this skill is an objectively worse version of that.
