"The Goddess has blessed us with this gift. Let us use it wisely."

Nevan, after obtaining the magma staff (DS)

The magma staff is a recurring wand in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen. It is often required to progress past a certain point by using it to remove a roadblock. Depending on the game, it will cast either Bang, Boom, or Magma Blast on all enemies when used as a tool in battle.

The magma staff is a knobbly cane fashioned from magma rock and wood. One end bears the appearance of a volcano's crater with a faint red glow emanating from the center.
