The Wristorative is a recurring accessory in the Dragon Quest series. It restores a small amount of HP to the wearer every turn in battle.


In its original appearance, the wristorative is a golden bracer made in the shape of a pair of angel's wings, featuring a pink heart-shaped gemstone. Starting with XI, the accessory was given a new name and the colour of the gemstone was changed to green to differentiate it from the life bracer.
