Staff of Dispater
|A legendary staff, granting power to unleash damnation -- although not without draining the wielder's vitality in the process.|
The staff may be used in combat, functioning as a +4 staff. You can improve your melee performance with this staff by training Fighting and Staves. Alternatively, the staff can be evoked to launch Hellfire at a monster, dealing a potentially massive amount of damage (max 3-171) that very few enemies are resistant to. However, it comes at a cost to HP as well as MP and food.
Spell Power: Evocations×8
Damage: 3d(8+Spell Power/5)
Cost: 5-23 HP (Average 14, but never fatal), 2-6 MP (Average 4), 100 food
Restrictions: You cannot evoke this item if you have less than 12 HP, 5 MP, or if you are under the effects of Death's Door
While this item does allow a character with high Evocations to deal tremendous damage quickly, be aware that many end-game monsters are completely immune to its effects. See the list here.
