Smoke battlestaff detail

The smoke battlestaff is a magical staff that requires 30 Attack and 30 Magic. When equipped the staff provides an infinite amount of air and fire runes. The staff is dropped by the Thermonuclear smoke devil. While casting spells from the standard spellbook, it provides a 10% increase in accuracy and damage.

To upgrade the staff to a Mystic smoke staff, players can give 40,000 coins to Thormac, after the completion of the Scorpion Catcher quest.

The elemental runes required for high alching and Camelot teleport are fire and air respectively. Using the staff, a player is able to achieve high agility xp/hour using the Seer's bank teleport (after doing the Kandarin hard diary) and magic xp by high alching using just nature and law runes.


  • Due to the popularity of splashing, the smoke battlestaff's price has skyrocketed in recent months^[when?] . However, when new anti-AFK mechanic was added into the game to prevent players from 6 hour splashing at a time, the smoke battlestaff began to crash drastically. 
  • A buff was added on 8 October 2015 to compensate for the update on splashing to make the smoke battlestaff still worth using.
