Now why would you want pple to think that the gobbie behind the planks sells beads? You need to recheck your facts, and quit misleading pple. He sells the colored chips during the hours of 11 to 22. Check your facts dude.
dirt cheap

Hello all. I've never posted on an e-board, so forgive my newbiness.

Question: I'm a 51Blu/25Rdm, with a Dark Staff equipped.
Only thing is, Blu does not have the weapon skill for staves.
What I want to know is, as a Blu, what is the significance of being able
to use it if you can't lvl it up? Or, can you?

Thanks for your time, all.

Honestly most mages use it for its +10 while healing. Only a BLM or RDM would use it in battle. And maybe a white but rarely.

MP recovered while healing/resting +10. Is the main reason everyone with MP uses this staff! Macro swap this item anytime you rest!

The prices of these plummeted to 50k on Phoenix, so I picked up a few with the intent of making a quick buck when the "new job rush" ended and their value started increasing again.

Trouble is, they've now crashed down to 20k. Did the ingredients to make them become incredibly common or something?

A similar tale is happening to Light Staffs, though they're only down to 50k so far.

What's most frustrating about all this is that Earth and Wind Staffs are still increasing in price. What the heck?!

Guys be happy if this staff is 200-500k; I bought mine on Asura last night for 800k. Right when i hit Lv50, it jumped fromm 600k (was pretty bad already) to 800k. I think this is because Diabolos just came out...
# Nov 13 2005 at 11:19 PM Rating: Decent
im sorry but on Siren server the price jumps but the highest i have ever seen it was 150k... right now the dark staff goes for a big 89-90k the light staff goes for about 90-100k...i fell sorry for yall and you high prices

I bhought this as a 45ish RDM, knew I was gonna need it, now as a 56RDM I love it. As Eklipz said, even RDM can run out of MP, I also normally get only about 3-5 ticks between pulls, thats not much with everything i'm expected to do, if I didn't have this there would be no chance in hell for me to lvl. getting this staff is as important for all mages, as doing all the G quests is for everyone.
Hidden Effect?
# Nov 04 2005 at 1:02 AM Rating: Decent
Got mine for 90k on Diabolos.

I thought this had a hidden effect for Summoners. Is that true?
# Oct 13 2005 at 6:24 AM Rating: Decent

Affect Defbuffs?
# Jul 03 2005 at 2:42 PM Rating: Decent
I don't no if this subject has been answered or not, but Im just curious as to the darks staff's hidden effect on debuffs. I know that it enhances dark type magic all round but if I were to try and slow a mob would the dark staff help or should I just keep my +5 MND items? Please respond input is good. ^^

Well, through my experience, the dark staff reduces the effect of Dia/DiaII, and the light staff increases the effects and also your curing ability. I still think this is worth it because I think it probably increases dark-based debuffs such as bio/bioII but I am yet to try it yet (blackmage only lvl 13)
# Jun 10 2005 at 2:22 AM Rating: Decent
my opinion even plds and drks

And lets say the Drk has 120%TP after one battle. He change to this stuff to gain mp. Of course you know.... when someone changes weapon he resets his TP.... right?? And you know that also, no TP...no skillchain...no mb...no *************** exp right???

Ahh, but what if it's the end of a chain and he has no tp and no mp either. And he's in a party without an rdm or brd.

RE: Huh?
# Oct 20 2005 at 3:30 PM Rating: Decent
If at the lvl this can be equipped, you do not have a Rdm or Brd in your party, you must have a damn good healer.
pure and simple
# May 31 2005 at 4:03 PM Rating: Default
any job with mp should consider one of these in my opinion even plds and drks. For any mage this staff is a must. A mage without this staff is alot like a pld without war sub.
