Iban's staff is a staff used to cast Iban Blast. It is obtained by defeating the evil mage Lord Iban at the end of Underground Pass quest. Iban's staff requires 50 Magic and 50 Attack to wield. Casting Iban Blast on a monster consumes one charge from the staff and casting it on another player consumes two charges. Casting other spells, like Fire Blast, do not consume any charges.

If Iban's staff is lost prior to completing the Underground Pass quest, Disciples of Iban must be killed for a broken Iban's staff. After the quest is completed, Koftik will give a broken staff to the player at the entrance to the Underground Pass. The broken Iban's staff must be brought to the Dark Mage with 200,000 to repair it.

The Dark Mage will upgrade an Iban's staff to an Iban's staff (u) for 200,000 coins, which increases the charges it holds to 2,500 instead of 120 and fully charges the staff. A broken Iban's staff can also be repaired and upgraded at the same time for 400,000 coins.

The maximum hit with Iban Blast is 25, making it excellent for low-level player killing and Barrows.

If Iban's staff is lost in PvP under level 20 Wilderness, it will be dropped to the ground and can be picked back up.

Upgrading Iban's staff or wielding an Iban's staff (u) is a medium Ardougne Diary task.

As a melee weapon, the Iban staff is equivalent to a mystic staff.

Charging[edit | edit source]

In order to charge an Iban's staff or an upgraded Iban's staff, players may bring it to the Flames of zamorak well in the Underground Pass to recharge it for free, doing so requires a spade, rope, a bow and at least one arrow. The paladins do not need to be killed again. Once Regicide is completed, travelling from Isafdar to the well is much easier. If the player has completed Mourning's End Part II the well can also be reached by using the Abyss to reach the Death Altar, then enter the Underground Pass through the secret passage in the Temple of Light, then use any of the staircases to reach the upper floor of the Underground Pass and head for the door in the north-eastern corner.

Alternatively, players can pay the Dark Mage 100,000 coins to charge the standard staff or 250,000 coins to charge the upgraded staff.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Every time the player equips Iban's staff, the game chat will state "You equip the staff of Iban."
  • Players can have staves by drop tricking when killing a Disciple of Iban to obtain multiple broken Iban's staff which can all be repaired. However, all duplicate staves share the same amount of charges.
