Tarutaru in Windurst Waters [s] With the staff

253 posts
if you guys want to see this staff up close there's an npc in the past ( windurst waters[s] ) that has this staff near the HP crsytal. His name is Kayeel-Payeel.

There's also an NPC hume in full PLD relic gear with Excalibur next to a female hume around the taru with the staff as well..

Bet if you look hard enough you'll find other npc's with other relic weapons/gear/ect.

I'm very disapointed about this staff. For BLM we really got shafted on our relic. You'd think this being the ULTIMATE STAFF you could sell all your HQ staves and this would replace them with some uber magic attack bonus also - thus freeing inventory space and eliminating the need to swap the various staves for nuking, but it's gimp. Absolutely worthless for BLM. Summoner on the other hand got a good deal on this one. BLMs are not suppose to hit the mob, how would you get TP? Icarus wings would cost you tons of money to activate the WS. When a BLM Solos a hard mob using the sleep+nuke+gravity method, if he hits the mob it will wake it, and kill the BLM - thus how can you build TP? How is this an ultimate weapon? a very worthless piece indeed.

I completely agree... This is useless by almost all accounts for any high level Black Mage. In fact, the only thing this item would provide is satisfaction and a toy to show off to people.

This still won't stop me trying to get one in the future.

The Signet staves all have the city emblem on the ...cloth-part of the signa (not sure what that's called...), and the Monster Signa has a target on it, so out of curiosity, what is the design on this signa? Thanks in advance.

This staff is very very good:
Criticals x 3.
High damage per hit.

Gate of Tartarus:
100 TP = 8mp/tic refresh for 20 sec.
200 TP = 8mp/tic refresh for 40 sec.
300 TP = 8mp/tic refresh for 60 sec.

*can stack with refresh(of rdm) and ballads.
With this staff you can be a melee in xp party.

Could any of you on Ragnarok ask Caile what the final currency type is for Claustrum? I'm at the second stage of the staff right now and can't find information anywhere as to the final type needed. It goes 5 jadeshells >> 16 100 byne bills >> 62 silver pieces >> and then 100 ______ ? back to jadeshells? If someone could ask Caile what the final cost is i would greatly appreciate it.

thanks!

When you think about it, The killer fees are the Attestation of Virtue and the 100Bynebillx16.
As far as the relics go, this is pretty cheap. No Ten Thousand items. Actually you could probably go to jeuno and buy up the 100 currency(Provided you had the gil) and never enter dynamis for that portion of the upgrade.

Allakhazam is against putting any info about the Celestial fragment up for whatever reason. It doesnt drop in Ifrit's cauldron and it doesn't drop in Dynamis Xarcabard. Please clarify. Ty.

Actually... That is incorrect as well...
Upgrade 1 = 5 L. Jadeshell
Upgrade 2 = 16 100 Byne Bill
Upgrade 3 = 62 M. Silverpiece
Upgrade 4 = 100 L. Jadeshell / 1 R. Stripeshell

Staff is one of the higher # of currency relics @ 18,300 total, as compared to Dagger @ 17,900 total, or Horn and Axe @ 17,700. Also take into consideration that, once completed, there is a "refund" of 3,000 pieces (so I've been told by 2 acquaintances on my server, who have Excalibur and Ragnorok).

Claustrum hidden effect
# Sep 11 2005 at 6:01 AM Rating: Excellent
11 posts
Claustrum
DMG:72 Delay:390
Latent effect: Accuracy+20
Additional effect: Dispel
Hidden effect: Adds "Refresh" effect

The refresh effect is 3 MP per tick and works only with less than 100% TP, making this staff godly because it can replace HQ staves for SMN, and does massive damage Spirit Taker, so it saves a SMN incredible amounts of MP. The +20 accuracy with Optical Hat, peacock charm, and Life belt means SMN can build TP very fast, deal huge damage with Spirit Taker while restoring their own MP, it would allow you to keep out Avatars infinitly, even making your level 70 blood pacts free.

I do around 120 damage Spirit Taker to tough monsters as SMN with HQ elemental staves, Claustrum has twice the DMG, so a logical guess would conclude that on average, you could restore 240 MP with Spirit Taker and Claustrum. Level 70 Blood pacts only cost 164 MP, and Avatars drain 70 MP every 30 seconds, Delay on the staff is 390, so about 4 seconds per swing, and each swing gives about 12 TP, thats about 8 swings for 100% TP. 8 times 4 is 32, so it takes 32 seconds to get 100%, meaning you restore 240 MP every 30 seconds (or maybe even more), making your Avatars free, even when using their level 70 blood pacts.

This staff would allow a Summoner to dish out more damage than any other job, no matter the circumstances, and the summoner would never run out of MP, so infinity amount of huge damage. I'd say its worth the 1.5 billion gil needed to get it.

(Third upgrade alone costs 900,000,000 gil, if nothing is farmed.)

the "refresh" effect activates as you use the WS on the weapon, which means until you have been hitting the monster to build enough TP to use the WS, you won't gain any refresh effect at all... oh and you can't use "Spirit within" to get the effect, you have to do the one called "Gate of Tartarus" which will give you a "mp drink effect" instead of a "mp potion (ether) effect" that is from spirit within. Hmm... I wonder which is better

don't forget that this weapon indeed does a great deal of damage.. in a situation where the SMN solos something even match or tougher, it's pretty much suicide if you start to do any damage to the monster at all unless it's almost dead... not to mention a potential to do more damage than your avatar with this D72 weapon and a kickass WS

the only occasion where I can see myself using this weapon to hit things is in a party... but then again, a summoner in a party usually is accompanied by a rdm or a brd, who will be providing constant refresh without you having to do a WS for it every "32 seconds"

just my 2 cents

Pretty sure he means retribution, the wsnm thingy for staff. That ws is a direct do dmg get mp move. As for the intelligence of a smn trying to solo a t or vt, couldnt say. It cannot be denied though that this is a really cool staff, and if the ws is like any of the other relic ws (havent seen this one yet <_<) it is probly really cool. It is Just far more rare that u would see a blm or smn use this weapon in anything but ******** around or helping out others.

OK.. um...

the Quested weaponskill for staff is {Retribution} which at 100tp does about 400-500 which is comparative to a normal {Dancing Edge},{Blade: Ku} or {Rampage}
at 300tp it does about 800-900 damage consistantly

I haven't seen {Gate of Tartarus} but I'd friggin wet myself if I could get it.

as to the weaponskill that converts damage done to MP, that is {Spirit Taker} and its a skill lvl 215

just a little clearification on that.


p.s. in NM/regular fights against skeletons, i'd melee with my 73 blm and take hate as soon as i fire off a {Retribution} its has an awesome animation and damage.


the downside is its still a staff attack... beetles and crabs don't take as much damage.

I mean, pld are the best staff users (A- in staff or something). A shame we can't use it. Theoricaly, between the additional effect: Dispel, and Spirit Taker, we could be a Tank + Support job in one pop, since we'd have infinite MP and could dispel ^^ Would be awesome.


Ohhhhhhhhhh well. Wishful thinking =/

Doesn't really matter since the Dispel would probably a rare proc. The Lockheart and the Balmung both have the Dispel effect, and they both proc very, very rarely. Even if they increased the chance of it procing (Seeing as how this is the "Ultimate Weapon" in SE's eyes), it still would only proc about 1/100 hits- less, even.

I'm a little dissapointed in SE's choice of ultimate Staff... I would think the Nihon-jins that made this game would pick a Japanese weapon for this. Like Nyoibo from the Saiyuki or something... Besides the WS which Mages really shouldn't even be getting to use unless soloing or helping a wuss *** level character do a quest or something, Kirin's Pole is superior in every possible way. And Kinkobo for the melees. Hmm...its just seems like a waste of ones life to acquire this relic weapon....but that's just my two cents...

This is to the people who say mages would rather have +int or mp or something. This staff is more mean for the soloing mage. And any mage who is my level or higher prolly his/her solo weapon of choice that isnt a dark/ice staff lol. Im just saying the dmg and ws is amazing. When i solo i just stick on some astral rings.. Enfeeble the mob and wack away. I dont nuke. Besides the mobs INt and other stats are naturally lower than yours anyways. so higher int isnt needed. This weapon would also be awesome for Ballista. LOL.

Scenario start:

WAR: Hahahah i see me a BLM... wOOt time to get gate breach.

BLM: /grin to himself with full tp.

War hits the blm with ramapage blm takes 675 DMG.
BLM hits war with gate of tartarus.

BLM defeats WAR. :)

WAR: **** WTF was that! **hangs head in shame**

I mean sure this obviously isn't going to be your featured weapon as a mage, but if you are in a bind and missing a rdm or brd and the mobs got some serious D boost then why not equip it and knock the smirk off its face, plus the WS is pretty sweet looking, I think the accuracy boost is just to make sure you connect and get the dispel to work. Now the only problem is getting one...
