Mystic staves are combined melee and magical weapons which can be used in combat, requiring level 40 Attack and Magic to wield. They are primarily used for casting combat spells, having +2 more Magic Attack bonuses compared to battlestaves, although they also have Melee Attack bonuses.

To create a mystic staff, a player must take a battlestaff to Thormac and pay him 40,000 coins to upgrade it (less with the completion of certain Kandarin Diaries).

On top of their melee capabilities, Mystic staves, like their non-upgraded Battlestaff variants, allow the wielder to autocast spells and also provide an unlimited supply of runes according to their element.
