From Ars Magica
Spell Staves, when combined with a spell scroll, can be used to cast spells without the need for Mana. The reagent requirements for the spell however, still apply.
Create a tier of spell staff using one of the recipes above, and then craft it together with the spell scroll you would like to be cast. It will show as mundane in the crafting grid output, but once you pick it up, it will gain the ability to cast the scroll.
Staves have a preset amount of charge based on their tier:
- A novice staff starts with 300 charge
- A journeyman staff starts with 900 charge
- A master staff starts with 5000 charge
The mana cost of the spell (calculated at the staff's tier of casting mode) is directly deducted from the staff. When the staff runs out of charge, it will break.
Currently, staves and beam/channeled spells are a little gitched - they work, but they don't render correctly and will sometimes get stuck "on". To stop, just switch to a different item.
