The lava battlestaff is a magical staff that requires 30 Attack and 30 Magic. When equipped the staff provides an infinite amount of earth and fire runes. The staff is dropped by the Kalphite Queen, Aberrant spectres, Lava dragons, Infernal Mages and Cerberus. Players can give 40,000 coins to Thormac, after the completion of the Scorpion Catcher quest, to upgrade the staff to a Mystic lava staff.
Many players deem this staff as nearly useless as the only spell to use both earth and fire runes is Lvl-6 Enchant. However, when training magic at the Magic Training Arena, this staff is the best staff once you're 87 Magic for getting Enchantment points. It is also useful for enfeeble-alching.
One more notable use of the Lava staff would be the saving of a single inventory space while carrying teleports to both the Fire rune teleports (Varrock, Trollheim, and Ape Atoll), in addition to the Earth rune teleports (Lumbridge, Watchtower, and Teleport to House). Wielding a lava staff would therefore allow all of these teleports while the player holds law and air runes; the exception being Ape Atoll also requiring 2 water runes.
Players can use a lava staff upgrade kit, obtained from the Bounty Hunter Store, to cosmetically enhance their lava battlestaff, creating a lava battlestaff (or). This only alters its appearance, and becomes untradeable. It can be reverted, but the kit will not be retained.
