The staff of light is a two-handed staff that requires 75 Magic to wield. It is obtained as a unique drop from ice strykewyrms, requiring 93 Slayer to kill. The golden parts of the staff can be recoloured into blue, green, red, and yellow at a one time cost of 2,000 Loyalty points by using it on Xuan in Burthorpe/Varrock or Dilwyn in Prifddinas.
The staff of light features a few special properties. When a combat spell (including curse spells like Confuse or Entangle) is cast with the staff, there is a 12.5% (1/8) chance that the staff will negate the rune cost for that spell. This chance increases to 20% when wearing combat robes, and 50% when wearing battle robes. Additionally, the staff of light can be used as a more accurate alternative to the slayer's staff for casting Slayer Dart.

The staff of light has a special attack called Power of Light which reduces the damage caused by all melee attacks used against the player by 50% for sixty seconds. It uses 100% adrenaline.
After the Evolution of Combat, a target must be selected to use this special attack.

Before the Evolution of CombatEdit
The Staff of Light was one of the most used staves before the Evolution of Combat, particularly before the introduction of the polypore staff. Besides its strong Magic accuracy, it also had decent melee stats roughly equivalent to a dragon weapon (it required 75 Attack along with 75 Magic to wield), and had a special attack that would halve all melee damage taken for one minute, draining 100% of the bar. When using the special attack in conjunction with Protect from Melee or Deflect Melee, 90% of incoming melee damage could be negated.
