The Oaken staff, also known as the oak staff, is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest series. It's the weapon the Hero from Dragon Quest V is seen wielding in his official artwork. It has gone on to become the most basic wand for spellcasters.

The oak staff has an attack bonus of +3, a magical might bonus of +2, a magical mending and style bonus of +1, and increases the wielder's weight by 2, as well as having a MP absorption rate of 2%. The staff can be equipped by Mages, Armamentalists, Sages, and Druids. It can be crafted with woodworking.

Dragon Quest Tact[edit]

The oak staff is a D-rank staff that can be acquired as a reward for completing the Staves: Intermediate level. It has a WIS bonus of +6 and two slots for Alchemy Effects.


  • The official art for the Hero of Dragon Quest V depicts him with this staff. This is the only time the protagonist of a numbered entry in the series is illustrated without a sword as his weapon, and is a subtle allusion to the true identity of V's legendary hero.
