The Yggdrasil Leaf (also know as the Leaf of the World Tree) is a recurring item in the Dragon Quest series. It refers to the World Tree of Norse mythology, which sometimes appears in the games, which could conceivably be imbued with magical properties.
In games with a World Tree, a player may obtain one by searching it, but if it is used, another may be obtained by the same method.
Yggdrasil Leaves are used to revive characters who have been killed in battle. Alternatives to Yggdrasil Leaves are the church and the Zing spell. Due to their usefulness, Yggdrasil Leaves are by far the rarest nonessential items in the game; they cannot be purchased, only collected from chests, and in many cases the player can only ever find one or two in the entire game world.
The leaf first appears in Dragon Quest II. It is located in the single forest tile on an island east of Wellgarth. In the remakes of Dragon Quest II, there is a newly added sub-quest which requires the player to acquire the leaf at least once in order to cure the Prince of Cannock's illness.
In Dragon Quest III, the leaf can be found in the large forest area in the China portion of the world map. Within the forest, the player must search at the intersecting tile of 4 single mountain tiles.
In the original version of Dragon Quest III, an additional leaf could be found in the world of Alefgard. By searching in the same tile location the leaf has in the light world, a duplicate can be found in the dark world. This glitch was fixed in the remakes of Dragon Quest III.
A leaf can easily be found on the branches on the Yggdrasil, though only one can be obtained. Though in the remake, you can have three at once provided that you get one off the branch, and get the other two which are found by:
Dragon Quest VI
In Dragon Quest VI, the leaf is available as a casino prize at two of the three casinos in the world. It costs 1,000 casino tokens, and the party is not limited to one leaf as in other games.
