The Gambetienn is the ultimate weapon for the Light-most class of Angela, the Grand Divina. It is a simple branch of wood, that bears a single budding sprout on its broadened head. Legend says that this staff was originally a wand used by a giantess, who offered it to honor the Mana Goddess. Wielding it is said to draw upon the user's latent talents to its fullest and unrestrained.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
In Norse mythology, Gambanteinn (Old Norse gambanteinn 'magic wand') appears in two poems in the Poetic Edda. It is the armament of Skírnir, the human messenger of the god Freyr, who threatened to use it against Freyr's wife, the jötunn goddess Gerðr, in the act of bringing her back to him to be given Freyr's magic sword.
