A mysterious weapon made for mages that not only increases their magical powers, but their physical strength as well. Although its striking power may not compare to that of the swords normal warriors carry, it gives the usually feeble mage a chance to protect him or herself when the situation calls for hand-to-hand combat. Apparently, a great number of female mages can be seen carrying this weapon about for self-defense purposes.
VIIStriking Staff is a weapon for Aerith, which can be bought for 1,300 gil at Gongaga and Junon before obtaining the Highwind, or stolen from Eligor and Harpy. It provides 32 Attack, 100 Atk%, 7 Magic, +2% Critical, and has one linked materia slot and two single materia slots.
