Sanguinesti staff detail

The Sanguinesti staff is a trident-class magic weapon requiring 75 Magic to wield. Crafted by Lord Drakan himself and given to Verzik Vitur as a gift for her assistance in the Misthalin–Morytania War, it is only available as a rare drop from the Theatre of Blood.

The staff has a built-in magic spell that can be used regardless of the spellbook the player is using, although it cannot be used to autocast any other combat spells. The spell gives no base experience and grants the player 2 Magic experience per damage dealt.

In addition, the spell possesses a healing passive effect in which successful hits have a 1 in 6 chance of healing the wielder half the amount of hitpoints dealt to a target.

The spell cannot be used against other players in the Wilderness. The only way that the spell can be used against other players is during the Castle Wars and TzHaar Fight Pit minigames, as well as the Clan Wars minigame if the clan leaders enable it.

ChargingEdit

In order to use the staff's magic spell, it must be charged with blood runes, holding up to 20,000 charges when fully charged. Each cast requires 3 blood runes, costing 858 coins per cast, and 17,160,000 coins to fully charge it with 60,000 blood runes.

UsesEdit

Sanguinesti staff passive effect

A player activates the staff's passive effect.

Compared to the trident of the swamp, the built-in spell hits one damage higher with a maximum base damage of 34 compared to the trident of the swamp's 33. The trident possesses the ability to envenom, while the staff possesses the healing passive effect.

Thus, the staff is most optimal in situations where venom or poison has no benefit, and where healing is required. However, if the player's target is not immune to venom, players could initially use the trident of the swamp against the target until the target has been envenomed, then switch to the Sanguinesti staff. Notable encounters where the staff's healing capability proves very useful include the Kraken, the Chambers of Xeric and Dagannoth Rex.

  • The staff's name and its relation to blood are a reference to exsanguination, the medical term for bleeding to death.
