Iban's staff (u) (referred to in-game as Iban's upgraded staff) is an upgraded Iban's staff that holds 2,500 charges instead of 120. It is obtained by bringing an Iban's staff and 200,000 coins to the Dark Mage, in the tower east of the entrance to the Underground Pass in West Ardougne. Upgrading the staff will also fully charge it. It 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, does not consume any charges.
If Iban's staff is lost prior to completing the Underground Pass quest, Disciples of Iban must be killed for a broken Iban's staff. After the quest is completed, Koftik will give a broken staff to the player at the entrance to the Underground Pass. The broken Iban's staff must be brought to the Dark Mage with 200,000 coins to repair it, then to reobtain the upgraded staff, the player must pay another 200,000 coins to the Dark Mage to upgrade the new staff. The broken staff can be repaired and upgraded directly 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 (u) 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.
An Iban's staff or its upgraded variant can be recharged for free by using it on the well where the paladin's badges are dropped, in the Underground Pass. Players can reach the exit by teleporting to Lleyta using a teleport crystal, by travelling to fairy ring BJS with 76 Agility, or by chartering a ship to Port Tyras (after completion of Regicide). Another method is by using the Abyss to enter the Death Altar and exiting to the bottom of the Underground Pass.
The quickest way to return to the well is through the Underground Pass exit, north of Lletya. Bringing some form of antipoison is highly recommended. Upon entering the Pass, climb down the well then go over the agility obstacles before passing through the door to the north-east where you will arrive at the well. Using the staff on the well will allow players to charge it. To return to the well from West Ardougne, you will need a bow, arrow(s), a spade, a plank (can be obtained), a tinderbox, and rope(s) to go through the Underground Pass the long way.
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.
