Steam battlestaff detail

The Steam battlestaff is a medium-power elemental staff. It requires 30 Magic to wield and provides an unlimited amount of water and fire runes. Steam battlestaves are dropped only by K'ril Tsutsaroth and his bodyguards, Balfrug Kreeyath, Tstanon Karlak, and Zakl'n Gritch.

The steam battlestaff was released on 28 August 2007 as part of the God Wars Dungeon update and is the latest of the hybrid elemental staves. After its release, some players complained about the steam battlestaff's similar appearance to the air staff. However, it received a graphical update on 5 September 2012 with the God Wars Remastered update, giving it a unique look. It received a third update, two months later, at the release of the Evolution of Combat update.

It can be made into a mystic steam staff by Thormac for a fee of 40,000 coins after completing the Scorpion Catcher quest or for 27,000 coins after completing the Seers' Village Hard tasks. Upgrading the staff boosts its level by 10.

Assuming the Seers' Village Hard tasks have been completed, each steam battlestaff upgraded into a mystic steam staff would yield a profit of 17671 coins.

Since the release of Dungeoneering, the tome of frost provides a cheaper alternative than a steam battlestaff. However, it requires at least 48 Dungeoneering and 43,000 tokens and after the Evolution of Combat, cannot provide the endless supply of fire runes that the battlestaff does as staves are now two-handed, removing the possibility of equipping both a staff and the book.

The following spells require both water and fire runes:

With 85 Crafting, players may attach a shade skull to the steam battlestaff, creating a skeletal battlestaff of steam.
