|A magical staff of ancient origin...|
The ancient staff is one of two magical staves that can be used to autocast spells from the Ancient Spellbook. It requires 50 attack and 50 magic to wield, along with completion of Desert Treasure. It is frequently used in high-level player-killing due to its high magical accuracy. It has a better strength bonus than the rune scimitar. It is unique in the fact that it is the only equipment to carry with it a negative prayer bonus. The staff is decorated with the symbol of Zaros.
Ancient staves can be obtained in four ways: a one time purchase from Eblis for 80,000 coins, a rare drop from mummies in Jaldraocht Pyramid, a rare drop from the Chaos Fanatic found in the Wilderness, or from trading with other players. It is also dropped by the Thermonuclear smoke devil.
