The Glower Staff (うみなりのシエ, Sound of the Ocean Staff?) is a Staff-class Artifact weapon found in Golden Sun: The Lost Age.

Basic Description[edit]

The Glower Staff increases the wielder's base Attack rating by 126 points. It can be bought for 10100 coins and sold for 7575 coins.

The Glower Staff is first found as a rusty item in a chest in the Shrine of the Sea God dungeon. To gain the weapon itself, the Rusty Staff must be brought to Sunshine the blacksmith in Yallam; he will reforge it and the player will be able to buy from him afterward. Being a Staff, it can be equipped by Ivan, Mia, Jenna, and Sheba.

Its Unleash effect is Flash Force (ランブリンエナジー, Rumbling Energy?), which is effectively a standard physical attack that adds 44 damage points and then modifies the resulting damage based on the user's Mercury power and the target's Mercury resistance. It may also seal the target's Psynergy. Flash Force visually resembles the user attacking the target and a colossal, rotating, light-blue holographic image of the Psynergy Seal symbol emerging and dissipating.

Analysis[edit]

The Glower Staff can be quite strong, since it can be found in a dungeon that can be completed as soon as the Great Eastern Sea segment of the game opens up. Its 126 attack boost can make it quite valuable for a while, considering that the highest-attack weapons findable prior to the boss battle with Poseidon, the Cloud Brand and Lightning Sword, have 130-134 attack. It has a slightly higher attack rating than the Demon Mace as well, and is almost as strong as the Dracomace. Ultimately, though, those other weapons would probably be better to have equipped once they are found, because the Glower Staff's Sealing Unleash effect isn't as useful in battles as other weapon unleashes' secondary effects.
