You’ll find this staff in Gröndal after you help the town by saving them in the past. This unique weapon can’t be found or bought anywhere else. 

Warning: this guide contains some minor spoilers for Dragon Quest VII.

Helping Gröndal

You need to restore the third Green Pillar first. Doing so will teleport you here.

When you reach the island, you can rest at the inn near the teleport pod. If you don’t need to, just follow the main road west to find the town of Gröndal.

Inside the town, head to the building on the top left and talk to the mayor, who’s sleeping in the bed. When you try to exit the building he’ll wake up and ask for your help.

Exit the town through the north and you’ll see Yggdrasil just a few steps ahead. Talk to the girl sleeping in the hut to the right of the tree, then go back to the mayor’s house and talk to him.

Head back to Yggdrasil and after a short dialogue you’ll trigger a boss fight.

The Stranger | Dragon Quest VII
The Stranger
350 HP, can attack twice, can throw his lantern to damage your group
He can hardly be considered a boss. His lantern attack will do at most 20-25 damage to your group. Just keep attacking him while keeping your party with more than half their HP and you’ll end the fight in no time.

When the fight is over, head back to the hut, talk to the girl and pick the Pixie Pitcher on the floor. Use it to collect a Dew of Life from the Yggdrasil tree.

Use the Dew of Life on the girl, then head back to Gröndal and use the same item on the mayor. He’ll tell you to use that drop to clean the well, but when you try to do it, the people in the village will stop you.

Talk to the mayor and head back again to Yggdrasil. The girl in there will open up a passage for you to reach the well from the underground.

The path is quite long, but completely linear and without any optional treasures. At the end of it, you’ll be at the well, which is guarded by a Well Wisher. Kill him and use the Dew of Life in this area to purify the well.

Exit the pit through the north and you’ll see everyone is healed, but before you can celebrate, a boss fight will start.

Fighting Baboon | Dragon Quest VII
Fighting Baboon
600HP, can cast Oomph and Multifists
This boss can sometimes do a devastating combo casting Oomph on himself and then Multifists, an attack that can hit up to four times. Whenever he casts Oomph, defend with your entire party.To finish him as quickly as possible, cast Sap twice and then continuously attack him while healing every time a party member has less than 60HP.

Finding the Staff of Salvation

Once you finish this fight, speak to the mayor and rest. The next day, exit the town and talk to the girl in Yggdrasil. She’ll reward you with the Staff of Salvation.

This unique weapon has really bad stats, but it can be used as an item during a battle to cast Midheal without even spending MP. This makes it an extremely useful item all the way up to the end of the game.

It’s a good idea to give it to a party member who doesn’t have that spell and has low MP (like a member with a fighter vocation), so you can have another healer in your party.
