Guthix staff detail.png

The Guthix staff is a god staff that can only be obtained by finishing the Mage Arena minigame. Like the other two god staves, the Guthix staff requires at least level 60 Magic to be both acquired and wielded. To get it, you must first defeat Kolodion the mage in all of his forms. Afterwards, you will have to pick a god to worship and you'll receive a cape and the staff from your corresponding god. If you've already chosen another god, you may buy this staff from the merchant for 80,000 coins.

The staff will allow wielders to cast the Claws of Guthix spell, this must be cast 100 times inside the Mage Arena minigame to gain the ability to use it outside of the arena. The spell has a chance to lower the opponent's defence by 5% on a successful hit, this effect does not stack with subsequent hits and will not re-occur until the opponents defence has returned to their original level. The spell can also be temporarily powered up by casting the Charge spell first.

If not a protected item, the Guthix staff will convert into 9,600 coins upon death above level 20 Wilderness.
