The tower mindspike is a staff obtained during Rune Mysteries. After the completion of Rune Mysteries, players can right-click it to access the "change element" option (which is only available whilst the mindspike is unequipped) - the staff's element may be changed into any of the four basic elements: air, water, earth or fire. Changing the element of the staff will change its colour and the rune which it provides. The staff's current element is shown in parentheses at the end of the item name (e.g. Tower mindspike (air)). The staff acts as a replacement for the elemental rune to which it corresponds when casting a spell, similar to elemental staffs such as the staff of fire.
If lost or destroyed, it can be retrieved from Wizard Borann on the ground floor of the Wizards' Tower.
