Iban's staff (u) (referred to in-game as Iban's upgraded staff) is a stronger version of Iban's staff. It is obtained by bringing Iban's staff to the dark mage, located in West Ardougne at the last house before the entrance of the Underground Pass dungeon, and paying him 200,000 coins. It provides the same functions as the basic Iban's staff (namely the ability to cast and auto-cast Iban Blast), but it holds 2,500 charges instead of the 120 charges that the basic Iban's staff is limited to. Upgrading the staff will also recharge it.
The maximum hit with Iban Blast is 25, making it excellent for low-level player killing and Barrows.
Casting Iban Blast on an NPC consumes one charge from the staff, and casting it on another player consumes two charges. Note that casting other spells, like Fire Blast, do not use any charges.
If players lose Iban's upgraded staff, they can obtain another by speaking to Koftik outside the underground pass to get a broken Iban's staff. They must bring it to the dark mage to repair it, where they will get a regular (not upgraded) Iban's staff; they must pay the upgrade fee of 250,000 coins again to regain Iban's upgraded staff.
If Iban's staff is lost in PvP combat under level 20 wilderness, it will be dropped to the ground and can be picked back up.
Upgrading Iban's staff or equipping Iban's upgraded staff is a medium Ardougne Diary task.
A player wielding Iban's staff (u)
To charge the staff or its upgraded variant, the player must go through the Underground Pass to the "Flames of Zamorak-well" located right after the three level 62 Paladins in the Underground Pass (bring a spade, rope and bow/arrow). The Paladins do not have to be killed again in order to recharge the staff. Reaching the well becomes much easier once the player has completed Regicide, as the player can then use the Isafdar entrance to reach the well, which is much quicker and easier than using the Ardougne entrance. Alternatively, players may pay the dark mage to charge it for them, which costs 100,000 for the standard staff, or 250,000 coins for the upgraded version.
Upgrading the standard Iban's staff to its upgraded variant also recharges the staff.
- ↑ The cost may be higher because of the variant of the item used. The base item is iban's staff.

|Iban's upgraded staff has been renamed to Iban's staff (u).
- Every time the player equips Iban's upgraded staff, the game chat will state "You equip the staff of Iban." This makes Iban's staff and its upgraded version the only weapons in Old School RuneScape to have a message upon equipping them.
