Light Staff for Bst

I heard that the Light Staff is Uber for bst to use for charming purposes. Is there a latent effect that isnt shown or some other reason that this staff is so good for bst?? I see the Chr bonus but the Monster Signa seems way better.
Someone please explain

The only hidden effects that I know of for elemental staves is a +15% (or 10, not sure) increase in any magic that is based on that particular element.

So if I cast Blizard for 100 points of damage, with the staff it would be 115 points of damage. If Charm is based on light elemental abilities, it is possible that the light staff will help with the charm rate.

Heh, right now these Staves(the regular ones mind you) are around 350-400k on my server. Like two weeks ago I was going to buy one since my white mage was almost close enough to use it, and decided to put it off until then. In a week and a half time it went from 95k to 400k+ I am so sad, I shoulda bought it then :(. The +1 is 2mil. Every NQ staff on my server is now 2mil.

Aside from Carby costs, this also boosts Dia/Dia2's initial DMG. I believe it also increases the amount of DEF it strips from based on experience. When using a Dark Staff, Dia/Dia2 was weakened. There's many hidden effects. Does anyone know if this staff effects Refresh?

as far as I can tell, the light staff doesn't effect refresh, my refresh + light staff still recovers 150 MP in the end, same with regen.

I haven't had a chance to test it out with Regen II effectively, but I saw someone cast regen III with and without the light staff, and with light staff it was 20HP a tick, vs 17HP without (it might've been 18 and he was just poisoned by the flies we skilling up on.
Is it worth it?

Ok, bout to hit 50 on my WHM and I've been looking at the options. This thing is going for 200k+ on Asura right now and I was wondering... Is it really worth it for a WHM to get this? Dark Staff I can understand, but I have been looking at the AF1 and Holy Shield combo.. and it seems a lot more inticing for the money o_O
Help me out if ya can :P

Is it worth it? hrmmm... well i can say that when i was lvl 50 i had my Af Blessed Hammer and a Divine Sheild equiped.. CureIII would heal for 190 HPs, once i hit 51 i switched to a Light Staff and CureIII then did 210...so It does power up your curing potency...but on the other hand it doesn't give u a MP or MND boost like the Shield and AF hammer do...so my MPs went from 611 to 592 while equipping the Light Staff...tbh there isnt much of a difference if not for the extra 20HPs it gives when u cure someone, but as i said u lose Mps...
I really like my Light Staff, but if u're a bit short on cash then i suggest u invest in a Dark Staff first for faster MP regenration and then a Light Staff if u can afford it^^

so, is that true that every staff give a +10 to the opposite element, or just to the element that the staff is?

Monster signa +8chr

Light staff +10light.... skill, don't know what to call it.

Apollo's Staff +15 light skill

Think of the signa giving somthing like +4light skill. The saves are much much better, and if your an Endgamer switching to a different job, or a rich new player... Buy the Appolo's for somthing like 850k and switch it for you Monster signa... I think you just might have to go wash your pants after you see how amazing the difference is.
