This type of staff is thoroughly linked to the image of the spellcasting profession, rare though it is. It is among the most powerful tools that a wizard can possess, the culmination of complex enchantments and endless study. This particular example is good in melee, grants invisibility, and offers protection from charms and evil. It can also cast Spell Trap and Dispel Magic and launch a Fireball-Lightning Bolt combination. The quintessential Mage item.
