Good skin, but looks botched when compared to the superb concept art. 19:46, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Who the hell in their right minds would salavage it.
Salvaged one and got 21 bones. Can provide screenshots if requested. 19:14, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Post the screens, I want to make fun of you. Really, I could have given you 21 bones and just asked Linsey instead. --Jette User Jette awesome.png 19:47, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Even r12s are ridiculously priced! It's next to impossible for a normal player to get them in a good amount of time! Sentry007 User Sentry007 sig.png 00:44, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

This isnt meant for normal players babe 11:00, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
If you can't make 100k in a week, let alone a month, you're doing something wrong. Vili User talk:Vili 11:03, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Or you have a life.--ShadowFog 12:33, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I make roughly 125k per week without opening the game at all. People who actually play can easily make more. -Auron 12:50, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Well then, I guess you (Sentry007) aren't actually playing.--ShadowFog 13:06, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
In an ideal game, even noob players or players who didn't want to farm would be able to get whatever armor or weapons they want. Why hasn't ANet realized that it's a game which is supposed to be fun? Having to work for better weapons kind of defeats the purpose of playing tbh. That's just my piece. Invincible RogueUser Invincible Rogue siggyiggywiggy.gif 22:24, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
Technically, it isn't better. In the opinion of many, it looks better. --TalkRiddle 22:27, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
If anyone could get anything they wanted for zero work, Guild Wars would not have an economy. That is not an exaggeration. It wouldn't have a bad economy or a skewed economy, it would not have an economy at all, full stop. -- 22:37, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
I left this discussion because I forgot I started it...but, even if you can make 125k in a week, this is much more then a 100k. And I'm not saying I'm completely poor (I'm starting to run the dungeon that drops this), but just saying that even a high req is very expensive. Sentry007 User Sentry007 sig.png 18:54, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
Blame it on your fellow players, they are asking these prices. --Arduinna talk 19:30, 10 April 2009 (UTC)
I need to stop leaving these're absolutely right, it is the player's fault that the prices are high. I hate ti when people (like myself, actually) complain about it. But you know what? Complaining is the one of the only ways to express my discomfort >.< Sentry007 User Sentry007 sig.png 22:59, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
the other is satire: See user:Shard Boro 10px‎ 12:26, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Ok what in the hell do you guys do that can get you 125k a week without actually trying? Lol ;p -Uriel Wolfblood

I missed the part where you can do either of those without opening gw. --Shadowcrest 02:55, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
This is freaking unbelieveably priced for a prot bds...q13s are 350e!!!! Sentry007 User Sentry007 sig.png 22:33, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
Am I the only person who thinks this is really ugly? >_< It's a bone... With a heart... That might bleed on me... I prefer astral :D Invincible RogueUser Invincible Rogue siggyiggywiggy.gif 20:46, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
I think they're hideous as well, actually. They suit necromancers, but that's it. People don't get them because they think they look great (usually), they get them because they're overpriced as hell. Why do you think people use Tormented Swords? The thing has no edge, it looks ridiculous (and before anyone gets on my ass about the no-dachi, that thing was designed differently and weighed more, not to mention needed 2 hands and wasn't historically effective from a military perspective anyway). The good news is, with the number of times I run Shards of Orr, eventually I'm going to get one of these at a decent requirement and make a metric assload of cash. --Jette User Jette awesome.png 10:46, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

They are very ugly, but if somebody wants to give me a lot of money for them, then I don't care. QuePedito 09:01, 26 September 2009 (UTC)

Watched a guildie pull a req9 healing one from SoO chest a week or so back. Goes for 200 ecto. More money than I've ever actually accumulated in my 5-year GW career I reckon. Andran Steel 02:06, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

What is the percentage that a BDS will drop fromt the chest?[edit]

What is the percentage any1 know?ChuckieReturns2 13:15, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

same as any other chest drop xD 02:03, 22 November 2009 (UTC)

something like 2% iirc. 22:32, 30 December 2009 (UTC)
It is lower than 2%, i have been on many SoOsc runs and only a couple have turned up. Im guessing same ods of a Voltaic Spear from Slavers' Exile. Flaming Hot Chilli 06:23, 16 January 2010 (UTC)


Apparently a cheap price for a requirement 9 protection magic Bone Dragon Staff is 750 ectos...can't imagine a req8...if there is such thing --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Sign your comments, please. User Ryuu R.jpg Ryuu - talk 19:59, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
It is kinda hard to get... I mean if you think people are overchaging its a free market... go get a perfect one and sell it for half that price... I just would not pay that much for it... MrPaladin talk 20:19, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
q9 heals all the way. 900e+ ftw... ChuckieReturns2 05:58, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

i think it looks like a dragon on a stick--Gozu 19:29, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Lost in Translation[edit]

Personaly, I think Anet could have done a little bit more to the staff to make it look like the picture. There is no spine running along the grip of the staff and most of the detail is lost. Its just some of these minior things that make this staff loose all personality. Not worth 750 ectoes. Flaming Hot Chilli 00:02, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Nothing introduced after October 26th, 2006 is worth 750 ectos. Or even 1. —Jette User Jette awesome.png 08:00, 6 September 2009 (UTC)

Z chest?[edit] 14:49, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, as all weapons in the entire game (probably weapons which are not in game also hehe) can drop from the zchest-- 22:33, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
No, only weapons that can be dropped by an enemy come out the zchest (sorry Eternal Blade doesn't follow that), and there is even a weapon that can be dropped by foes but doesn't to come out the zchest -- the IDS is the only weapon (I think) that is dropped by foes but doesn't seem to come out the zchest. I could probably make a list of all items that doesn't come out the zchest C4K3 User C4K3 Signature.jpg Talk 22:39, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

Umm... The Silverwing recurve Bow, nor Dryad Bow.... and some others don't drop ^^ so yea, some DONT dorp :P- --Haunted Shadow 03:18, 28 October 2009 (UTC)Haunted Shadow

Why is it so expensive? It doesn't even look nice....

Can this come Uninsc?[edit]

Can the Fendi chest drop an uninsc BDS?-- 12:25, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Its a very VERY rare bug, but the answer is yes. -- 12:26, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
It's not a bug. — Mini Me 13:52, 24 January 2010

Am i the only one[edit]

Who thinks this skin is ugly as sin? Its terrible >.< Or am i alone in my hatred for this staff? IAmWhatYouBleed 11:28, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Dragons on a stick are ugleh. 14:26, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
The concept art is impressive though. The actual weapon looks shoddy. -- Arduin talk 14:29, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
It's fugly. I still don't understand why these go for so much when other weapons from dungeon chests are just as hard to get and there's no speed clear for their dungeon either. Some Ninja Dude 06:19, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
it's because 90% of the people who play GW are sins or monks and they need staves
I'd never buy one, but if I got one I'd sell it. Crapload of ectos >>>>>>> Ugly staff. :D 17:00, 23 March 2010 (UTC)
Its pug-fugly. The decline 11:21, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Could look much better?[edit]

So, after looking at the concept... and the final product... then some of the other stuff they've modeled...
I'm thinking.. they could make it match the concept.. right?...I mean someone do some comparing. -- Stimpson J Kat 07:45, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

What's wrong with a pipe, a liver, some ribs, and a deer skull? Eive Talk Windgrace 02:51, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
Some ppl just don't know how freaking difficult it is to make 3D models. I think Anet did a fairly good job. If you want high-poly models, go play Crysis please. -User Mikkelet Eme.jpgMikkelet 13:43, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

One of the worst looking staff in game[edit]

Cood be ok for a MM, still the regular Bone Staff looks 1000 times better than this... --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

People just get angry that they cannot have expensive things. It's a nice looking skin dyed certain colors, and for sure looks better than that staff with balls of fuzz at the end. Sonic Sunday User Da Sonic Sig2.png 17:21, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
You totaly fail by thinking that if someone doesn't own/want a BDS it's just cause they can't afford it. I could easily own some of these "babes" but I find the skin horrible, and that's the only reason why I don't bother buying one (same as with some other "expensive" and ugly skins/armors such as chaos gloves, silverwing or crystallines). The only highend skins that I find quite attractive are the Emmerald Blade and Dryad bow (and maybe voltaic spears). IMO Charr Staff beats this by far. but then again, that's just my opinion, as seems to be the above anon's --Lhoj 23:34, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Not to beat a dead horse, but I agree. It's not an amazing skin; the concept art is awesome but it wasn't implemented well. That being said, I think the Charr staff looks better as well, but I am toying with the idea of getting one of these for my rit just to round out my collection of expensive weapons. So, I can have it if I want, not having sour grapes, just not that much a fan. The main (and kind of only reason) I would get one of these is just for the hell of it (and the "prestige"). 21:21, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
I know this conversation is kind of old but it still disappoints me that people assume that just because someone doesn't like something it makes them poor I have 3 old school Q7's that I'm way more fond of than any of the newer shit. On the other hand I've sold 3 Vs's so it's really a preference thing imo. Lol so don't assume because you know what they say about assuming things =P.

Drop rate?[edit]

Anybody know the drop rate fro this staff? 19:22, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Idea came from??[edit] No way of knowing where the person who designed the skin took inspiration from, but I'd say that's a pretty close guess. If it was, 10 points to the designer for the reference and relevant word play. 17:39, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
