Broken staff detail.png

A broken staff is an item that can be repaired into different kinds of staves at a repair bench or higher in the Workshop of a player-owned house. Repairing one gives 14.5 Crafting experience.

Broken staves can be dug up at the Digsite, or fished up on the Fishing Trawler.

When shown to the archaeological expert, he says, "Look at this... Interesting.,. This appears to belong to a cleric of some kind; certainly not a follower of Saradomin. However, I wonder if there was another civilisation here before the Saradominists."

Possible rewards[edit | edit source]

There is a chance of breaking the broken staff and receiving nothing. The success rate is higher with a higher Crafting level.[1]

Profit analysis[edit | edit source]

Considering the Grand Exchange values and probabilities of obtaining each staff, repairing a Broken staff will on average yield 293.00. Thus repairing broken staves is hardly worth it even in bulk.

Is it Fletching that affects the chance of destroying a broken arrow? Is it Crafting that affects the chance of destroying a broken staff?] I see you didn't change either :P Yes, yes and yes."
