The dust battlestaff is a magical staff that requires 30 Attack and 30 Magic. When equipped the staff provides an infinite amount of air and earth runes.

The staff is dropped by superior slayer monsters and dust devils. Players can give 40,000 coins to Thormac, after the completion of the Scorpion Catcher quest, to upgrade the staff to a Mystic dust staff.
