Ok, just shootin the **** a little.... I noticed the other day in Caederva Mire (or however the hell you spell it) I had Sanction refrsh, Noble's Tunic, and Pluto's Staff. I was 72WHM/37SMN and with Fenrir out there was no drain on my mp at all. I was so happy i had to tell you everybody lmao. I didn't know the hidden -perp for avatar effect worked even if you subbed SMN WOOT!

Ok well with this one i did it on lightday Full moon i got 2/8 HQ so this wasnt very good day but im making my study and doing the research.
# Sep 04 2005 at 7:17 AM Rating: Decent
I just did 1/7 HQ yesterday lost about 2Mill..
Today I tried again and did 3/7 so Im even break, with 100+6 you got higher chance for HQ but hell no it can be 75%
I've also had a fail where I lost my bead ;;
Overall its juts luck, of course new moon/full moon and the day affect this but mostly luck, one HQ on Bahamuth make up for about 3-4 NQ's depend on wich.

Got one today for my DRK. Since I use up most if not all my MP a fight this should help when I rest. Of course I'll only rest if I got no TP since I usually SC.

LMFAO at the guy that said the bead is easy enough to make...just takes a wind crystal. Try level 87 goldsmithing to make beads from ore

Quote Seedling: "I'm a 60 RDM, and I still melee. Nothing shabby about a 400+ Spirits Within, or Flat Blade'ing AM"

Good job Seedling, you should be meleeing, always IMO. Red Mages that don't melee obviously aren't making sure their Sword-Skill is kept high, or they don't have the proper melee-gear to swap with.

Anyway this staff is awesome and I am planning on getting one as soon as I hit lv. 51 on Remora, currently I am lv. 50 ^^, it only costs 1.000.000 Gil on AH i Jeuno.
RE: Awesome!

That's funny, because on Gilgamesh, if you melee as a rdm, you get kicked out of your party pretty damn quick, which infuriates me, because all those enspells we go to the trouble of buying get wasted, the party loses about 100 damage per fight, you don't cap your weapons, and spend more mp nuking the enemy, resulting in longer fights and more downtime.
RE: Awesome!
# May 25 2008 at 10:59 AM Rating: Decent
Yo if you cant keep your Parties MP up to reduce the downtime on your RDM you rly just need to kill yourself, a good RDM can keep a Party of 6 completely Refreshed, and Hasted, Enfeeble, Sleep Add's, and Nuke with little problems its all about timing your cast's and keeping a rythm and if you cant do that you should go play a different job... If you wanna DD lv SAM, DRK, BLU, MNK, WAR, or even BLM if you wanna use magic but RDM is a BACK-LINE job lmao... and if you want to lv your Sword skill's and use the little enhancements do like every other normal person does SKILL-UP Parties ^^d...

It's a lvl 75 synth, so 95+ should get a HQ rate that offsets fails.

Does anyone whos crafted this know what level it takes to frequently get the +1?
# Dec 17 2004 at 6:02 AM Rating: Good
yah babay! I use Dark and light staff, remember tho that all those bonus u get when u equip this staff, toward dark magic, hurt your light magic, make sure to switch it out when u heal etc, same goes for the rest of the staff they hurt the opposite alingment spell, Ice ^ Wind v. you get the picture.
Black Staff for Black mage?

I would like to eventually use this staff when im a high enough level. It looks badass, has decent stats. The main reason why i want it is because i see BlackMages runing around with little wands and such that look kind of weak (they are really powerful) i know Blackmages are not suppost to look all high and mighty because their real power lies within, but still..Can we have a staff like this one, but only more for making the BlackMage stronger (Mp bonus/Int bonus mainly)...

yeah im a rdm thats been playing around with the dark staff. I seriously think that swords are better though. the staff doesnt do much. and when u switch to dark staff when resting your tp is gone =/

Wait...you're a rdm and you care about your TP post 51? O_o

Ummmm, so you give up a couple hundred mp that you could be getting with the staff for a lame 50 dmg ws? ok...

With a ginger cookie and one of these babies i get 32 mp per tick when healing and hardly ever have to convert, if you are still meleeing at your level, you're just wasting your time.

What is the advantage of this over Dark Staff? I know it gives +2 to each stat, but you only use it while healing, why even bother with it?

Oh, there's so much more to it.

NQ (regular) staffs give +10% potency to the element they are associated with
HQ (+1) staffs give +15% potency to the element they are associated with

The Pluto's Staff is so popular because it boosts Dark Element spells. This is most useful with Sleep, which is generally a spell which is very important to stick.

dark staff has a hidden sbility -2 perpetuation on fenrir
pluto staff has -3
-1 more perpetuation might not sound much to u but as a SMN, it makes much diff
RE: Advantages
# Jul 09 2005 at 6:03 AM Rating: Excellent

Pluto's Staff
Vermillion Cloak
Summoners Auto-Refresh

Fenrir costs me 0 MP to keep out.

Dark Staff, and the above gear, Fenrir is 1 MP / tick

Yeah, worth having, I am going to level SMN so these staves are not going anywhere! I am going to get the whole HQ Set one day. So far, only the Pluto and Apollo HQ's.

ahhh this staff goes for 600k on my server. Is it worth a rdm buying it? Or should i stick to swords?
Got you all Beat!
# Jul 20 2004 at 2:31 PM Rating: Decent
Got you all beat! I am on the Ragnarok server and this staff sells for 400K in jueno AH. I thought the price the high for me, but I think I was the one who got the steal for this staff. Good luck getting it. I got lucky with the prices on my server.

I'm at 50 RDM now and wanted to have some motivation to finish Limit Break 1, so I bought myself the NQ Dark Staff.

It was about 200k on Garuda. The HQ was selling between 1 mil and 1.2 mil at the time at Jeuno AH.
where to get?
# May 10 2004 at 5:39 AM Rating: Default
the bead is easy to make its just a wind crystal, and a dark ore. These staffs get marked up big time. on my server that would be about 6k. And always for sale at the AH.
RE: where to get?
# Jun 16 2004 at 2:13 AM Rating: Decent
You must not forget about the Crafting level 75!! not many people can achieve this

if that isn't a typo, you may be mistaking this for another item. dark ore sells for 390-420k on fairy, as of 10 minutes ago. the "cheapest" ore is still over 250k, while the costliest is 600k.

dark staves go for right around 500k, while pluto's sells pretty consistently at a million gil, or just a bit less.

prices have gone down of late, for obvious reasons. on the date of your post 500k was about average for dark. (i've been gardening since long before various "get rich growing ___!" recipes started making the rounds, so i pay close attention to price trends.)

I'm sure he was getting Dark Ore confused with Darksteel ore.
# Feb 15 2004 at 3:49 PM Rating: Default
To make this item, you need help from both an extremely high skilled Goldsmither and Carpenter. Most likely, the best carpenter and goldsmither on your server are needed to make this. The jewel that goes into the staff is EXTREMELY expensive.
# Feb 04 2004 at 11:12 PM Rating: Default
The items from the summons battles are Rare EX.
These staves are tradeable.
These staves are crafted by HIGH level carpenters, but don't get your hopes up. The key component is some refined elemental ore which is amazingly rare and expensive so the chances of ever crafting one is very small. Their price directly reflects the cost of materials not an inflation due to the skill needed to craft them.
