Battlestaff detail

A battlestaff is a members only staff which boosts Magic and requires 30 Magic to wield.

If a player uses the appropriate (earth, water, fire, or air) charge orb spell on an obelisk with an unpowered orb in their inventory, they can make an elemental orb, which can then be attached to the top of the battlestaff.

Players who have completed the Scorpion Catcher quest can take their battlestaff to Thormac who will turn it into a mystic staff for 40,000 coins.

Players who have completed Ritual of the Mahjarrat and have 77 Crafting can combine a battlestaff with an orb of Armadyl to produce an Armadyl battlestaff.
