Staff detail

A Battlestaff is a members-only staff which boosts Magic. It requires 30 Attack and Magic to wield. Mostly, though, it is useful in making elemental battlestaves. By using the appropriate (earth, water, fire, air) charge orb spell on an Obelisk with an Unpowered orb in your inventory, you can make an elemental orb, which you can then attach to the top of the battlestaff. Then, you can take it to Thormac (if you've done Scorpion Catcher) to make a mystic staff for 40,000 coins. Visually the battlestaff is identical to the staff and the dramen staff, although the battlestaff holds better stats. If combined with orb of Armadyl, it can be made into an armadyl battlestaff (must have completed Ritual of the Mahjarrat and have 77 Crafting).
