Catalytic staff detail

The Catalytic staff, the Tier 5 staff in Dungeoneering (also the highest requirement staff in F2P), can be found in the dungeons under Daemonheim, requiring 40 Magic to wield. The catalytic staff replaces all elemental runes at once, like unimbued staves.

Free players can only obtain this by looting the defeated boss, Unholy cursebearer located on floors 15-17 and 30-35 of Daemonheim, by receiving it as a starting item when entering a floor, or by imbuing a spinebeam staff or better on a runecrafting altar. To find and bind the staff players only need to have 60+ Magic and 60+ Runecrafting and repeatedly enter and leave dungeons, at complexity 1 or 2 to flush the weapon out of starting kit in the Smuggler room.
