Dust battlestaff detail.png

A dust battlestaff is a dust elemental staff which provides unlimited amounts of air and earth runes as well as the autocast option when equipped. It requires 30 Attack and 30 Magic to wield. The mystic dust staff is an even stronger alternative, providing better melee stat bonuses.

The staff is obtainable as a potential drop from various monsters (mostly superior slayer monsters), other players, and the Grand Exchange.
