Staff of the Master
Aura moderate (varies by school); CL 8th
Slot none; Price 30000 gp; Weight 5 lbs.
Often given as gifts to apprentices upon reaching the rank of master, these staves come in eight different varieties, one for each school of magic. This particular staff is for the school of necromancy. Aside from acting as a +1/+1 quarterstaff, this staff allows use of the following spells:
- Ray of enfeeblement – 1 charge
- Spectral hand – 1 charge
- Vampiric touch – 2 charges
In addition, this staff can be used to cast spells using any metamagic feats known by the wielder without increasing the spell’s level. This consumes a number of charges equal to the number of spell levels increased by the feat. No more than one feat can be applied to a spell cast by the wielder in this way. Using the staff for this purpose does not increase the casting time of the spell.
Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Craft Staff, ray of enfeeblement, spectral hand, vampiric touch (spells vary by school); Cost 15300 gp
