Varrock Diary discount perk

Players that have completed at least the easy set of Varrock Diary tasks can buy noted battlestaves at a discount price (7,000 coins each) once a day by claiming them from barrels located on the ground floor of the shop. The amount of staves one can buy each day depends on their progress in the Varrock Diary.

Buying discounted battlestaves is a good daily moneymaking method, as players can then immediately sell them on the Grand Exchange for over 1,000 gp more each. Players can also choose not to sell them and use them to train Crafting by making elemental battlestaves, which is especially useful for ironmen.

The table below shows the corresponding number of available battlestaves for each of the Varrock diaries, and the profit made from selling them on the Grand Exchange.

Medium 30 210,000 26,820
Hard 60 420,000 53,640
Elite 120 840,000 107,280
