A staff is a type of Non-Projectile Weapon. You equip it, and can use it to engage in Combat in the circumstances on which you are permitted to engage in Combat (ie Serroco, Derra, and vs Bandits/Creatures elsewhere).
Ugh that is what I get for reading the middle section of the posts. But yeah staff is staff, you can apply so mo cool custom and be a wizard, or just RP with it, but other than that, you can poke stuff for some damage.
