The '''wizard's staff''' is a recurring weapon in the ''[[Dragon Quest (series)|Dragon Quest]]'' franchise. When used as a tool in battle, it casts [[Frizz]] on an enemy. It is usually the first [[wand]] that the player can find.
 
 
 
==Characteristics==
 
This staff's design has changed little over the years. It is a gnarled wooden staff long enough to be held with two hands and topped with a red crystal orb that is held with a gnarled claw. In earlier games in the series, the end of the staff had a metal tip and a smaller blue orb at the bottom end. Starting with ''Dragon Quest VII'', the wizard's staff no longer had the orb at the bottom and the design has stayed the same since then. It also become reclassified as a [[heavy wand]] starting with ''Dragon Quest X''.
