Kazave (Kanave in the NES version, and Khoryv in the iOS/Android versions) is a village in the overworld of Dragon Quest III. It is located in the mountains north of Romaly and south of Noaniels.


Kazave is an optional location in Dragon Quest III as it does not possess any key items for completing the game. It serves as a stopping point for completing 2 nearby side quests; the Tower of Shanpane and the Dream Ruby quest.

Enemy boundary glitch

Kazave is near an area of the world map which has errors in its enemy boundaries. By traveling east from Kazave along the river, enemies from the southern region across the river can be encountered. These enemies are extremely powerful compared to those near Kazave and can give a huge experience boost if defeated early in the game.

Killer bees

One of the enemy types found near Kazave is the Scornet. These enemies can cause a player to become numb are being attacked, the first appearance of this status condition in the game and series. This condition is necessary to perform the numb status glitch. Fighting killer bees is the earliest point in the game where the glitch can be performed.

Poison needle

Kazave is the first opportunity in the game to acquire the poison needle. One can be found in a treasure chest in the item shop at night. This is the only opportunity to acquire one until much later in the game when they can be purchased in Soo. They are also rarely dropped by enemies in various locations.
