Midway through the quest, at some point Shantotto says "It was your bomb ash and bone chips along with my misery staff that vexed the voyeur" So maybe in order to get the staff to activate u have to have a bomb ash and 2 bones chips in your inventory, just a random thought.

you know what i think we might have this all wrong, i was in giddeus camping hoo mjuu and i never get aggroed, im lvl 29 so nothing aggros me, but when i bought this staff and brought it up to giddeus, for some reason the whole house of yags would continue to aggro me, i threw the staff away since then and have not been aggroed there since.
It's not the size that matters, it's how you use it.

I never saw my Misery Staff do its additional effect once, and I used it for ten levels, meleeing the whole time. Maybe I've just partied with good tanks and healers, but I think you practically have to be nearly dead for "curse" to kick in on this staff, if it's an HP related additional effect. If your HP isn't what triggers the effect, then I can't imagine what makes it work, because after a few thousand hits, I never saw anything that I wouldn't have seen a normal staff do.

Keep this in mind when considering this, the Dolphin Staff, Hypno Staff, etc. The stats on some other wand or staff might be of more reliable benefit to you than some additional effect that kicks in once in a blue moon when the planets are aligned and it's February 29 at midnight on a Leap Year.

I was playing with this to raise skill in Konschtat as a 30whm/blm. Curse went off three times during the half hour or so I was there: Once on a lightning elemental, once on a goblin butcher, and once on a sheep. Couldn't tell you if it was day or night, but my HP never dropped into the yellow.

IMHO it just has a random chance of happening on each swing. The curse effect isn't very dramatic, so you could easily miss it happening in the battle spam if you're in a party/crowd.

Not a terribly impressive weapon, but it was kinda fun to try.

Yes it does do curse, i have used it befroe. but i have to say i will never use it agian. for some reason it just doesnt cut it, and i was always getting killed by aggro or by lack of power.

My staff HAS done it's curse...but I've noticed that the few times it HAS gone off, it was against a Sea Monk and then whatever ghost-type monsters are in Buburimu and on the ship. Not sure if that means anything...but the curse effect DEFINITELY works.

Used for a higher level craft?

I saw someone had bought all of these in the auction house in sandy. The only reason i could think of for needing 10 misery staffs is if it is used in some higher level crafting recipe. Anyone know?

Results: Elm Lumber
HQ1 Elm Lumber
HQ2 Slime Oil
HQ3 Black Pearl

Edit: Anyone know if there is a recipe to make these floating around out there? I can only guess at the recipe, but you can get a good idea of what you need to make this.

In Ragnarok the staff only costs 500-800 gil in Windurst. Pretty nice to go out and farm solo with.

Works like a charm err.. Cursna

Lv 1 splat works all the time. No reason to wait for curse to wear off, grab a lv 1 job and get killed. =]

I had a friend use the staff on monsters, he would hit and it would curse, but it didn't do as much as other curses do. I was cursed by the Dragon in Giddeus and it lasted 45+ real life minutes and took me to about 33% hp/mp. The curse on the staff doesnt do much at all.. just a warning before you think of buying it.

Yeah, Curse is horrible!!! Had a crypt ghost cast it on me, it' lowered my max hp/mp by 25% and slowed my movement...fricking triple threat, and if that wasn't enough, it lasted forever and a day...or about 5 minutes. Nice to see that this staff has that special ability :)!
