Also Called

  • Bō Proficiency/Skill/Expertise
  • Bōjutsu
  • Cane Proficiency
  • Enhanced Wand Proficiency
  • Gun (棍: stick)
  • Quarterstaff
  • Rod Proficiency


Users are able to demonstrate a aptitude for the ways of the staff or wand, being able to wield a staff/wand with great proficiency and skill. If the staff possesses magical properties, they are able to repel magical creatures, harness arcane energies, conjuring spells, incantations and other variations.

They may be able to use close quarter combat against mythical creatures with magic channeled into the staff.



  • May not be able to wield any other bladed weapons with other proficiency because the staff is considered a two handed weapon to the inexperienced.
  • May only be effective against Monsters but not in close range combat.
  • May render the user powerless if they are disarmed, unless they can use magic without the object.
