Staff of air equipped

A player carries an elemental staff.

Elemental staves provide an infinite amount of one or two of the basic elemental runes: air, water, earth, and fire. The staves come in three different types:
  • Basic elemental staves have no requirements to wield and can be bought from various stores. Mindspike is principally a basic elemental staff with the ability of changing the element with different stats (prayer bonus, better magic stats than mystic staff but poor melee stats)
  • Battlestaves require 30 Magic and Attack to wield, and can be created by adding an orb, created through Crafting and charged through Magic to a regular battlestaff. Battlestaves that provide an infinite amount of two runes cannot be created, only obtained through monster drops.
  • Mystic staves require 40 Magic and Attack to wield, and can be created by paying Thormac 40,000 coins and giving him a charged battlestaff after a player has completed the Scorpion Catcher quest.
