Oblivion:Generic Staves

Oblivion: Items / Magic
Staves

Generic staves are found in random loot and can randomly be found on some NPCs. Unique staves are all described in the article on Staves. The Oblivion-Weapons-Staves category provides a list of all available staves.

Finding generic stavesEdit

Leveled Lists are used to generate the staves found in loot and on enemies. Most of the generic staves use a "Lesser/normal/Greater" system, which determines the level at which the staves will be found:

  • Lesser variety staves are found at levels 5-17 (at lower levels, staves are not normally found).
  • Normal staves are found starting at level 9.
  • Greater variety staves are found starting at level 14.

A few more powerful staves also exist that do not follow the "Lesser/normal/Greater" system. These staves are listed under Other and generally are not found until level 18 (a few are not found until even higher levels).

NPCs that sell enchanted weapons:

Containers and enemies that contain/carry generic enchanted weapons (like dungeons):

NPCs that have level-dependent amount of enchanted weapons that you can pickpocket at the start of every level:

It is possible to obtain the high-level staves from liches at any level. In particular, the King of Miscarcand will always carry a high-level staff, even at level 1. Also, Ruma Camoran will always carry a Lesser Staff of Sickness at lower levels, which can be looted from her corpse if she is killed in the quest "Dagon Shrine" and repeatedly if killed in Paradise.

The spelling "Staffs" is used in-game for the plural (e.g. the shop Rindir's Staffs).

A.
^ 
Using this staff against Vampires is not recommended as they are immune to Paralysis. Consequently the effect of this staff will merely make them invisible and hostile
B.
^ 
The Banishment enchantment sets the ghost flag on the target. The intent was presumably to make the target invisible, incapable of action and incapable of being interacted with. Unfortunately, the ghost effect doesn't stop the target showing as a conversation target, and doesn't mean the player can walk through it so the result is far from perfect.
C.
^ 
There are two staves identified as "Staff of Weakness:" the one in this table, and a more common variety with only a Damage Endurance enchantment.
