King Doric is the first named character in the series to specialize in using staves

Staves are a relatively new weapon type in the Dragon Quest series, typically used by Martial Artists and Priests. Debuting as a distinct category in Dragon Quest IX, they are primarily used for defence in the way of avoiding attacks out right. While this does not limit the use of the weapon to less-resilient characters, it is still advised to equip them to any character in need of extra evasion.

They are similar to the real life gun, , and quarterstaff, which are used in martial arts.

Appearances[edit]

Dragon Quest V[edit]

While falling under the same category as wands in guidebooks, there are some staves in this game that have no magical properties of their own and resemble those found in later games. Both the Hero and his son are capable of equipping them.

Dragon Quest IX[edit]

Staves may be equipped by martial artists and priests by default, and then by any character that adds 100 points to the skill tree.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below[edit]

Staves are the weapon of choice of King Doric.

  • Twinkle twinkle little staff
  • Stout staff
  • Driller pillar
  • Squishing rod
  • Barbed bludgeon
  • Mistick
  • King's cudgel
  • Diabolicane
  • Dragon rod
  • Sunburst staff

Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End[edit]

In the sequel, the two main characters, Lazarel and Teresa are capable of equipping staves as well, depending on their current Vocation. Martial artists, priests, and sages are capable of equipping staves.
