Caduceus is a recurring ability in the Dragon Quest series. It heals a party member for relatively low MP cost.
Caduceus is a staff technique that both Jessica and Angelo can learn. It requires 57 skill points for Jessica, and 48 skill points for Angelo. When used, HP is restored by 70~100 points and is unaffected by the character's tension.
Known as Staff of Salvation, it is learned when one invests 44 skill points into the Heavy wand skill tree. It was a heavily used ability during the game's early days in 2012 until 1.2 onwards, costing 5 MP to use.
The caduceus is an ancient symbol of the Greek messenger deity Hermes, being his preferred weapon. It is made up of two snakes entwined around a staff with wings. Due to modern confusion with the Rod of Asclepius, the symbol has also been tied to medicine.
