Staff of Anubis
|Staff of Anubis|
Visual effect of Sarcophagus
|Side effect||May inflict the target with the haunt condition|
A Staff of Anubis increases the wielder's attack by 83 points. They can be sold for 4125 coins and subsequently rebought for 5500 coins. They are occasionally dropped by a Red Demon in the Gabomba Statue. As a Staff, one can be equipped by Jenna, Ivan, Sheba, and Mia.
The Staff of Anubis' Unleash attack is Sarcophagus (ファラオ力ース, Pharaoh Curse?). Sarcophagus converts all damage to Venus damage and attacks with an additional 30 damage points. Also, there is a chance that it will cause the target to be haunted. It visually resembles a large Egyptian sarcophagus with a skeleton on it landing down onto the target and disappearing in a flash of green skull-shapes.
Like many artifacts, the Staff of Anubis is among the best weapons available for when it can be obtained, although it is unlikely to be received without manipulating the RNG. Those lucky enough to acquire it may find it useful even after stronger weapons becomes available, mostly due to Sarcophagus' ability to haunt foes. However, the odds of the haunting occurring are slim without Unleash-boosting equipment, so some players may wish to trade it in for more reliable equipment. In terms of both class and Unleash, the Staff of Anubis can be considered a weaker, non-cursed alternative to the Demonic Staff.
- Sheba unleashes Whorl on Red Demon;
- Everyone else attacks the other monster.
Anubis was the Egyptian god of mummification and the afterlife. Anubis was the main god of burial and the afterlife until the Middle Kingdom (2080-1640 BC) at which point that job was given over to Osiris and Anubis became more of a minor god.
