I have been looking for one of these for weeks, and it's never up for sale in bazaar on Kane Bayle...until today...and the person has it listed for 80k. Is it just me, or, is this price just really out of the ball park?

# Apr 02 2005 at 4:32 PM Rating: Decent
I sold one today on the Bertoxxulous server for 4500pp. I've seen it up several times between 5k and 10k. Anything more than 7k nowadays I would say is overpriced.

Yea... I have been seein it for 5-9k and today when my DRU made 46 I decided to see if anyone had one so I could go play and some fool has it marked at 50k... I dont think its EVER been that much... I think a few people have missed their reality pill... heh

Not really... If no one sells them and people are looking for them then of course the price is going to be high.
It's rare, not only because its an uncommon drop off a rare spawn, but also because no one hunts in seb.

Everyone is talking about this staff for quadding, I'm thinking it would make a good group item too. I duo with a ranger. On a Drogmor I dould click the staff during fight, on a mount that means I'm medding and doing free damage. Throw a DOT, snare and DS in the beggining, I should be FM at the end by just clicking the staff during the fight.
Price Data
# Aug 26 2003 at 12:04 PM Rating: Decent
You all need to take a really carefull look at the price data. This staff is for sale on most servers for 3,000pp. Someone placed a price of 18kpp for this item. It has not sold for that as a normal price for almost 2 years. That changed the balance of average pricing. Report it please, since I cant.

solo him? By: Valdon,
361 posts
Posted @ Fri, Apr 4th 9:06 PM 2003 Score: Decent[2.61]
As we get older, and more... and more disgusting gear drops. We are able to solo mobs that used to take a whole group, or... and with charming sometimes even more then 2 groups can take. I have a 39 druid, I know I cant take this guy yet... but is there anything thats charmable (animal) in the zone... and can he be soloed when your looking at lvl 50->65? I have a very high lvl druid that would most likely be excited to help be farm this guy. The reason is, at my current level this staff is worth my halfling weight in gold. The idea of a mana-less quad strike, +7 wis... is just disgusting - please ANY info on takign this guy? as opposed to debating grammar errors?

What items/spells/whatever will reduce the cast time for this staff? I tried the Naki Studded Ring which works for my memorized spell but not this staff.

No item will reduce the cast time of a clicky item... You can however get an extended range II+ item to make the range bigger if you are having problems getting it off in time.

Nerfed for Druid only?

I dont know if this was posted earlier...I tried to read all the previous posts but I got bored so heres my scoop, just checked em out in bazaar, says Druid only. I suppose this was nerfed sometime......oh yeah.....this would SUCK for a monk.

Was always druid only. When beastlords were introudced, it appeared for a little bit that almost all druid armor had BST appended to it, and allakhazam made that assumption to help jumpstart the introduction of BST gear into the database. Over time, those items which were never actually changed are slowly being corrected, as this should be.
Extended Range 3

With Extended Range you can just barely get off a cast without getting hit. Before they put in the focus items I never really did any serious quading with the staff since the cast time was so long that the mobs would always reach me before it went off. If you try it, watch out, because it will be very, very close, but in the end it will generally work.
RE: Extended Range 3
# Feb 23 2003 at 6:23 PM Rating: Default
It depends on what mobs you are fighting as different mobs move at different speeds. I used this to with very good effect to quad kite spirocs in tim deep and ulthorks in EW, but found that it was cutting it too close for comfort for wyverns in CS and for Giants everywhere ( i tried the ones at the fort in GD no go they move too fast) and was also too long a casting time to try quading most animals like the various ones in EW and the direwolves in GD. just depends on the mob speed.
RE: Extended Range 3
# Jan 08 2003 at 4:51 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, and Extended Range 2 item will work with this staff as the spell is below lvl 44.

Also, distance from the mob when the spell fires using an Extended Range item varies depending on the mobs your fighting.

I routinely used this staff to quad wyverns, and as long as I had my moonstone ring equipped, I had plenty of time to get running again before getting hit. WITHOUT the ring was another story, I had to make sure I started moving as soon as the cast bar hit zero or I was feelin the hurt.

Also, a friendly tip, that will add fuel to the "Druids Suck!" argument, with KEI, using Lightning Blast and Ensnare, assuming there were enough wyverns up, I could quad one set of wyverns with Lightning Blast, grab another set, quad them with Lightning Blast, have enough mana left over to completely ensnare another set, use the staff to kill off another round of 4 (yes ensnare will last long enough if you have your head on straight) and have regened enough mana during the third quad to ensnare and Lightning Blast another set.

What's so great about this? If you can hit CS during off peak times (I frequently play there at 3 AM PST), you can quad everything thats up without ever having to sit down to med. The zone will start repopping as your finishing up with the last set.

Raptors w/ Lumi Staff
# Aug 09 2002 at 11:47 AM Rating: Decent
My druid was given this staff a long time ago and I never really used it. Last night, while quadding raptors in TD, I decided to try it out.

Facts: Works nicely just takes forever to kill them with the Staff alone. One "normal" quad leaves me at 40m. With KEI and Lumi Staff (to regain mana in between casts), I was quadding large and small, with no hassles.
Just make sure, if you u attempt using the Staff, you are out of casting range to begin with. Start clicking and eventually the staff will cast. Staff will fire off with the raptors about two steps away from hitting you. Then RUN! lol

# May 22 2002 at 12:23 PM Rating: Decent
Just bought one from a guy not selling his for 9k, he was reluctant, but after having bone handled scintar in velk's lab, this is perfect, out of spidey/dog range, yet not enough to get aggro, yet enough to do a bit of dmg on em manafree with my entire gear, invis, lev (useless in velk, blah), chloro, dot, snare, group wolf, now nuke... nice...

Is Velks an outdoor zone? This staff only works outdoors from what I am to understand.

Great Stick Heres why : )
# Mar 05 2002 at 6:48 PM Rating: Excellent
Hello everyone :)

Well I bought this Staff on Karana for 4366pp.
All the money I had at the time lol.
I am a druid lvl 50 I had to sacrafice 15 wis to wear this wepon (Testament of vaneer +10 and Dark ember + 5)the following account will 100 fold justify why it is a Great Stick :)

First Night I killed 57 Ulthorks in eastern wastes non stop with out going OOM in fact I never got lower than 50% mana.

The Ulthorks I killed drop 5 tusks and I bought 1 for 40pp and got given 2 from a vahshir who needed help looting a griffin egg.

I handed my tusks to the cheif and Got 1 blue diamond and 1 Star Ruby Earring so right there on my first go I paid for my stick.

Back to the non stop action I have worked out a trick with the staff in relation to the slow cast time.

At first the mobs would hit me (from the time they were in range till the time the lightning hit about 10 seconds)and 4 angry ulthorks would sometimes strip a bubble of red off me. OUCH

But my roommate was watching and she said can I have a go I think I can see a way not to get hit.

Her first go she was hit (I thought nahh there is no way not to get hit) THEN she pulled it off a direct hit 4 x 184 and no hits to herself WOW.

I said do it again.
She did and again no loss of health.

Then she explained what she saw from a 3rd persons perspective.

The cast bar has a graphic on the first and the last bubble.

Run far enough away from the mob till when your facing them and rapidly clicking your mouse button it says your target is out of range.

Once the spell starts to cast keep your eyes on the bar and as soon as the bar drains to the last buble get ready to move back wards.

As soon as the buble drains equal to the graphic on the last bubble(about 1/5 of a bubble)run backwards the spell still gets off and you don't get hit works everytime with Ulthorks.

It will take some practice but yes you can get away without being hit.

Other mobs I have quad kited are
Wooly Rhinos (can not do this without being hit
Ulthork Man-o-wars Yes but there a long fight
Wyverns in cobalt scars Yes killed with out getting hit 4 wyverns = 1 blue xp bub for 50 Dru :P

This weapon ROCKS its worth 20kpp in my mind

Tonight I will quad kite the Dorfs in BB and let you all know what happened with them. If its doable youl see me killing 4 guardsa at a time in and around Akanon lol XP for ME :P

Nice post, didn't even consider taking down ulthorks nice and easy with this. The staff is also great if you're quadding something and run out of mana before the last blast. Just run them around a bit more firing off the staff and no more worries. :)
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 15 2002 at 11:58 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) First of all this stick is random proc NOT triggered to you couldnt have killed uthorks without getting hit... Second the Dorf city is called Kaladim not Akanon.

Hey Troggy, as you may have guessed by all the posts, the staff is a click effect (maybe you should get one). Also, he said he was going to test the staff on the dorfs. It is not a huge jump in logic to conclude that if the test is successful, he will MOVE to gnome town.

Jeeze, quit tring to be so literal and looking for reasons to flame.

BTW, I want this staff. Mana free snare, dot, regrowth, and now ae, what more could a druid want (beside fewer druids to compete with /jk)
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 30 2002 at 2:02 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Yeah, wtf dude, your a 53 druid and you dont even know this staff is clickable??? I know this, and have known it forever, and I hate druids. Mages rule them !! Maybe you should look up stuff before you post dumbass posts. Did you buy your 53 druid off of ebay? cause that is your only explanation on why your such a moron.

Um, NO ! The Lumi Staff has a RIGHT CLICKABLE / Mana Free effect ! That means that you RIGHT CLICK it ..... It is NOT A PROC ! You do not melee with it to get the effect you RIGHT CLICK on it. I have been using mine since lv 46. Trust me !

I think I've found the next thing im going to try and buy. ES vambs, Tunare Warders Symbol and this will stop me using mana ever again, well maybe not, but I'd still love to have one of these. I can live with the slow cast and the melee stats of it arent all that bad either.
