A mage's staff is far more than just a gilded walking stick, most being enchanted to an impressive degree. This one is no exception, and whoever the previous owner was, they were powerful indeed. It enables a mage to better escape hostile magic and avoid physical blows, and can erect a Globe of Invulnerability (one charge). Offensively it can be used in melee very well, and cast a Lightning Bolt (one charge).
