The Wizardly whip is a recurring whip in the Dragon Quest series. It is a powerful weapon capable of attacking a group of enemies, just like most whips, and in some entries it deals increased damage to monsters of the Elemental family.

The Wizardly whip has an Attack bonus of +97, a Style bonus of +45 and can be equipped by Ashlynn and all of the Slime companions, except Goowain. It can be purchased Sorceria for 13,000 gold coins and sold for 10,500. The whip can also be dropped rarely by Perky pelicans at a rate of 1256.

The Style bonus can be raised to +70 at the Fashion Forge for 4,000 gold.

Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past[edit]

The Wizardly whip has an Attack bonus of +115, a Style bonus of +52, and can be equipped by Maribel and Aishe as long as they are level 30. It is available as a special DLC item in the Nintendo 3DS version after the first-time completion of the Whipping Up a Frenzy tablet.

It can only be equipped by Jessica and Red as long as they are at least level 30. The whip can be sold for 36,000 gold, but it is not recommended to do so as only one can be acquired in the game.

The whip was available through a special promotion for Japanese players that visited the real world Luida's Bar restaurant between August 29th, 2015 and September 30th, 2015, eventually becoming available for all players from November 4, 2015 and November 17, 2015. It was also available for international players for a short time in 2017, but after 2018, all DLC items for the 3DS Version became unavailable.

  • The Wizardly whip's Japanese name, Calbero bute, is named after Calberona, the Japanese name for the city of Sorceria. Although it has made appearances in other games, it has maintained the same name and is even referenced in the flavour text for the whip in IX. The word "bute" is believed to be a reference to the Red Bute, a whip that is wielded by the Akaranger Tsuyoshi Kaijo from the Japanese live-action Super Sentai series, Himitsu Sentai Gorenger. Bute has appeared in the name of whips in other Japanese video games, such as Final Fantasy.
