This type of staff is the pinnacle of the artificer's craft, and each one represents the culmination of decades of study by a master spellcaster. With the secrets of their creation all but lost, such staffs are more often found in the hoards of ancient dragons than the hands of living wizards.

This staff may be broken to create a retributive strike. All charges in the staff are released in a massive explosion. Those caught in the blast take hit points of damage equal to six times the number of charges left in the staff.

The wielder may also cast spells on the staff to recharge its uses. The staff will absorb the spells, converting spell levels into charges. Care must be taken, for if the staff absorbs enough spell levels to exceed its charge limit, it will explode as if a retributive strike had been performed.
