The steam battlestaff is a medium-power elemental staff released on 28 August 2007 as part of the God Wars Dungeon update. It requires 30 Magic to wield and provides an unlimited amount of water and fire runes. Steam battlestaves are dropped only by K'ril Tsutsaroth and his bodyguards, Balfrug Kreeyath, Tstanon Karlak, and Zakl'n Gritch.
It can be made into a mystic steam staff by Thormac for a fee of 40,000 coins after completing the Scorpion Catcher quest or for 27,000 coins after completing the Seers' Village hard achievements. Upgrading the staff boosts its level by 10.
Assuming the Seers' Village hard achievements have been completed, each steam battlestaff upgraded into a mystic steam staff would yield a profit of 12,875 coins.
The following spells require both water and fire runes:
With 85 Crafting, players may attach a shade skull to the steam battlestaff, creating a skeletal steam battlestaff.
