on FV we have just entered hyper inflation, prices often doubling within a week. however, i bought this one for 1000pp, when someone wanted to delete account. i believe to have reason to be happy.

I picked up the staff off the bazaar the other day.

1. The item can be clicked, but must bo done while staff is equipped (ie since it is a two-handed weapon, it uses up both primary and secondary slots), and is thus different from the white ceramic band which can be clicked from inventory.

3. Flame bolt is line-of-sight only ... using it on slopes and mountainous terrain can be pain because the bolt does not land.

4. The cast time is 13+ secs .... reeeaalllly long time, but save on mana and there is no cast interval.

Overall, I have had to change my tactics slightly when using the staff, but I am pretty happy with it.

Hope this helps,

I don't believe the proc starts kicking in till lvl 46, so wouldn't be able to twink a lower lvl mage with it.

Oh, and you want to see overprice? Was for sale all weekend on Veeshan for 50k! I have a feeling it will be in their inventory for a while at those prices...

8/20 2HB weight 6.9 Unlimited Right Click Cinder Bolt 333DD. Requires Line of Sight, but much easier to hit mob than regular bolt spells. There is a 13.5 second cast time, No recast time.One of the best Mage weapons out there, right up there with boots of bladecalling which are no-drop. From what I have seen in 2 years on EQ, this item is ultra-rare.Must be equipped to work.

Got one today, 2/2/2. Dropped from a Lesser Guardian...i believe the name is right...the golem looking things on the bridge near where the Bridgkeeper spawns. Made one mage quite happy.

Everyone is talking about R-clicking to nuke from this stick, but the info show it's a Random/Unlimited proc. To my knowledge that means you must be engaged in combat for the bolt to proc. Can someone in possession of this staff clarify?

This item is indeed clickable. Allakhazam's data is entered manually, and proc vs. click info is often not available, Allakhazam often guesses proc for any weapon.
Burnt Wood, Lammy and I

I'd been sitting on one of these bad-boys for a while. I have a 31 WAR who really needed a Lammy, and so I offered up a trade. Best I was able to get was Lammy+1k for this. I think that's a bit low, but honestly a lot of mages just don't want to give up that second slot to a 2HB.

All this on 7th hammer.
Must Equip
# Nov 08 2001 at 1:57 PM Rating: Decent
yeah, clicking on item while in inventory gives you the "must equip to use".

btw someone GAVE me one of these bad boys. Only 35 now, but when get up a few levels will be bad news. I'm a 'bolt mage' anyways, so right up my alley
Worth a shot

Pretty sure I know the answer to this question, but does it have to be equiped to be used?
# May 10 2001 at 9:59 AM Rating: Default
usable at 46+
off of what??

What does this drop off of??

Seems to be random. The only time I've ever seen it drop, it came from a Chardoki Golem (congrats, Merryl.)

Weight has been changed to 6.5 i think.
burnt staff
# Mar 19 2001 at 8:39 AM Rating: Good
casting time is 15 seconds. It begins to work at 46 and it's an awesome item in groups and in solo.
A little trick : pull with malosi, send pet, right click staff, quickly write /sit and enter, med 10 seconds, write /sit off and enter. Repeat until done, nuke once if needed :) This way you can med for about half a bubble mana during fight while chain casting 333 bolts every 15 secs (enough to kill a low blue at 54 with an air pet).
This staff changed my life :)
