Concept drawing for the Hourglass Staff


Dye can be applied on this weapon, but it has no cosmetic effect.


Except for the visual appearance and damage type, it is possible to create a replica of this staff with the same stats. Replicas will cause the damage type associated with the inherent attribute.

Create a replica with the following:


  • This item cannot be upgraded.
  • The hourglass spins in a full circle continuously tracing the ring that surrounds it.
  • Except for Divine Favor staves, non-randomly generated Fast Casting, Soul Reaping, Energy Storage, and Spawning Power staves do not usually deal fire damage.


  • This weapon was based on one of the designs by Bora Vergili from the Design-a-Weapon Contest held in 2007.
  • The first update on August 23, 2007 removed dye color from the Hourglass Staff and prevented new dye effects (you can still apply dye, but it makes no changes).
