Oak Branch is a staff in Dragon Age: Origins.


Obtained from the Grand Oak by either killing him or giving him back his acorn. Once acquired, it allows passage through the magical barrier in the Nature of the Beast questline.

In the Dragon Age (tabletop RPG), Oak Branch is available as a "permanent magic item" reward for player characters. This staff is one of the most powerful magic staffs available in the game.[1]

“Said to have been harvested from a sentient tree in the Brecilian Forest, this quarterstaff feels warm to the touch and gives its wielder the sense that it’s alive, ever shifting and moving beneath the fingers.”
