Zaff's Superior Staffs! is located near central Varrock. Zaff, the owner, is the main source of elemental staves and battlestaves for free players. 

Players that have completed at least the easy set of Varrock Diary tasks can buy noted battlestaves at a discount price once a day by claiming them from barrels located on the ground floor of the shop. The amount of staves one can buy each day depends on their progress in the Varrock Diary.

Varrock Diary discount perkEdit

Buying discounted battlestaves is a good moneymaking method, as you can then immediately sell them on the Grand Exchange for over 1,000 gp more each. You can also choose not to sell them and use them to train Crafting yourself by making elemental battlestaves, which is especially useful for Ironmen.

The table below shows the corresponding number of available battlestaves for each of the Varrock diaries.

Difficulty Daily permitted battlestaves
Easy 15
Medium 30
Hard 60
Elite 120


Laying on the northern table inside the shop, there appears to be a Pharaoh's sceptre, a Slayer's staff, and a Rod of ivandis. However, Zaff does not sell any of these in his shop.
