Iban's staff is a staff used to cast Iban Blast. It is obtained by defeating the evil mage Lord Iban at the end of the Underground Pass quest. Iban's staff requires 50 Magic and 50 Attack to wield. Casting Iban Blast on a monster consumes one charge from the staff and casting it on another player consumes two charges. Casting other spells, like Fire Blast, do not consume any charges.

If Iban's staff is lost prior to completing Underground Pass, Disciples of Iban must be killed for a broken staff. After the quest is completed, Koftik will give a broken staff to the player at the entrance to the Underground Pass. In either case, the broken Iban's staff must be brought to the Dark Mage with 200,000 coins to repair it.

The Dark Mage will upgrade an Iban's staff to an Iban's staff (u) for 200,000 coins, which increases the charges it holds to 2,500 instead of 120 and fully charges the staff. A broken Iban's staff can also be repaired and upgraded at the same time for 400,000 coins.

The maximum hit with Iban Blast is 25, making it excellent for low-level player killing and Barrows.

If Iban's staff is lost in PvP under level 20 Wilderness, it will be dropped to the ground and can be picked back up.

Upgrading Iban's staff or wielding an Iban's staff (u) is a medium Ardougne Diary task.

As a melee weapon, the Iban staff is equivalent to a mystic staff.

Charging[edit | edit source]

An Iban's staff or an upgraded Iban's staff can be recharged for free by using them on the well where the paladin's badges are dropped, in the Underground Pass.

Alternatively, players can pay the Dark Mage in West Ardougne 100,000 coins to charge the standard staff or 250,000 coins to charge the upgraded staff.
