Greenstone Staff is a soulbound quarterstaff in Pillars of Eternity, added in The White March - Part I expansion. It can only be used by a Druid, Monk or Wizard.

Description[edit | edit source]

As with other soulbound weapons, the in-game description of Greenstone Staff is only gradually revealed. The description starts as a single paragraph, and a new one is added each time the weapon is upgraded.

Level 1[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
A twisted piece of wood grips a glowing adra chunk with root-like tendrils. Something about the staff resonates in your soul. When you hold it, you hear the distant whisper of wind through the trees.

Level 2[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
An Aedyran explorer in Eir Glanfath came across a row of adra pillars near what is now Solace Vale. Having never seen such a display of living adra, he thought immediately of the Ine Sycthrúa that houses the souls of Aedyran nobility and decided that these pillars must surely hold something magnificent. He chiseled a chunk of adra from the growth and brought it back to Dunryd for further study.

Level 3[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
The adra chunk was placed in a staff and given to Lady Rügfald, one of the fercönyng's favorite courtiers. Lady Rügfald was a talented dabbler in the magical arts and infamous at court for her clever but ostentatious spellwork. However, the Greenstone Staff was her undoing – she accidentally summoned a blight. The creature was quickly dispatched, but not before it had ruined the imperial consort's finest robes. Though many historians believe it was the fercônyng's untimely chuckle that doomed Lady Rügfald, the damage was done, and propriety demanded her removal from court. Lord and Lady Rügfald were sent to a distant but comfortable estate in the Young colonial capital of New Dunryd. Despite her husband's protests, Lady Rügfald refused to surrender the Greenstone Staff.

Level 4[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Rumor of the Greenstone Staffs existence – and the adra originally stolen from Eir Glanfath eventually reached the Glanfathan tribes. The subject became a convenient grievance for the anamfatha and a stumbling block for Admeth Hadret. VVhen resentments flared over the flouting of the Ten Years Treaties, Hadret employed a team of Glanfathan mind hunters to investigate the plunder of the ruins. When they found evidence of the fercönyng's involvement, Hadret gifted the Greenstone Staff to the anamfatha as a symbolic but important gesture.
