Despite originally being created against vyrewatch, the blisterwood staff is also a great staff for dangerous PvP, as it is virtually free to reobtain and at little effort. Considering the staff is cheap and has high accuracy, this is also a good general-purpose staff for less wealthy players, as an alternative to Ahrim's staff.
This weapon can be made on Entrana by smuggling blisterwood logs and knife to the island and making it there.
Unlike most staves in the game, the inventory icon for this staff shows the staff angled to the left instead of the right.
The staff was originally much shorter, only slightly longer than most wands. Its length was increased significantly on 5 September, 2012 with the player model update. This change was likely put in place to justify the staff's two-handed requirement in the upcoming Evolution of Combat update.
Until July 2013, players could cast high alchemy on the staff, yielding 15,600 coins, but this was patched by Jagex.
