Magic Staffs are a set of magical tools that can be found through the dungeon of Barony, allowing its user to cast spells of varying types depending on the staff itself without any mana cost or prior magic skills.
A staff functions similarly to any normal weapon or held item, able to be wielded by the player and placed in the hotbar for quick access. When held, the staff will fire its magic when pressing the attack button (Default Mouse 0). Attacking does not consume mana, as well as bypassing any magic or casting skills prior to use, allowing a staff to rapidly fire high-damage spells that would otherwise be impossible without high casting skills.
Using a staff will award both Casting and Magic skill points, allowing for a novice spellcaster to both use a spell they could otherwise not learn, as well as gaining basic experience to further development of magic skills. However, staffs have one critical weakness compared to direct magic: repeated use will degrade the staff until it can no longer be used.
When deciding what items to take and which to leave behind for new items, the proper staff can serve any player well in a pinch, allowing for superior magical output when combating high-threat enemies, or serving as a utility such as unlocking doors or digging through walls. Even when a user has already mastered magic and casting, having a damaging staff can help to conserve mana, rather than casting those same bolts directly.
Even staffs with little to no utility, such as Staff of Light or Locking can have benefits, where casting them repeatedly until they are drained can help bolster a player's skills instead of being wasted.
