The mindspike is a staff that is capable of changing its element to air, water, earth or fire. The mindspike is a reward from Gudrik for completing the path.
The staff provides unlimited runes in the element it is set to. You can change the element of the mindspike by right-clicking on it and selecting "Change element". The staff's current element is shown in brackets at the end of the item name (e.g. Mindspike (air)). You can change the element back and forth with no tangible limitations. This can be used to save inventory space when casting spells that require different types of runes.
Only one mindspike can normally be obtained at a time; however, this can be circumvented by changing the mindspike to any element other than air. This is because the mindspike is always obtained from Gudrik in its air form. Mindspikes of the same element will stack in the bank. This will not work if the player has a Tower mindspike in their inventory or bank however.
The mindspike has a special attack, as do its melee and ranged equivalents, the keenblade and quickbow.
The mindspike's special attack, Rune Flame.
The mindspike's special attack is Rune Flame. This costs 75% adrenaline and blasts the target with 25% increased accuracy for 100-150% weapon damage.
