I tried moving the page myself, but Mediawiki won't let me overwrite The Staff of Aesculapius, and I can't delete it myself.

Also, artilist.h defines the item's name as "The Staff of Aesculapius". All quest artifacts include "The" in their defined name, including all the quest artifact weapons.

IIRC, wishing for the Staff will give you "a quarterstaff named The Staff of Aesculapius", but once identified, you see "the +0 Staff of Aesculapius". -- Killian 23:45, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

I have sysop access to the wiki, so I was able to delete, move and undelete. --Kernigh 05:18, 24 October 2006 (UTC)
Thanks. I believe the Tsurugi of Muramasa is in a similar state at the moment; could someone please take care of that? -- Killian 12:33, 24 October 2006 (UTC)

When you invoke, which order do the effects activate in? (Blasting vs. Healing) -- 06:48, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

It only blasts on pickup. Not on invoke.--Qwertyu63 14:55, 3 March 2008 (UTC)

It blasted me on invoke - "You are blasted by the staff named The Staff of Aesculapius' power! You feel better." 01:31, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

  • Same here. Blasted me on invoke, then healed half of my total damage.

-- Is this artifact immune from curses?

"You notice a black glow surrounding you. You feel a malignant aura surround you. The Staff of Aesculapius resists!" --Eucarya Talk 22:29, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

All artifacts have a chance of resisting curses. You got lucky. 23:10, 30 November 2008 (UTC)


Do you get the same amount of xp forkillling monsters normally, and draining them dry?

No, see Spellbook_of_drain_life and corresponding talk page for details. -Tjr 11:57, September 18, 2009 (UTC)
