Use[]

The Silver Staff provides the third-highest Magic Attack Magic Attack attribute of any of Aerith's weapons, but excels due to its natural MP regeneration ability, as well as Trade-Off to allow Aerith to recover MP upon taking damage. Its abilities include spell cost reductions to both offensive and defensive spells. The Silver Staff is therefore one of Aerith's best two offensive weapons, and can serve her excellently in drawn-out fights.

The Mythril Rod and Reinforced Staff Reinforced Staff provide a greater magic attack attribute than the Silver Staff, but focus on different areas. The Mythril Rod may be better in pure magic damage, but its MP regeneration is much more modest, and its lack of Reprieve means it greatly compromises Aerith's survivability. The Reinforced Staff, on the other hand, has great durability improvements for Aerith, but has no MP regeneration, and thus lags behind Silver Staff in offensive potential overall.

The Silver Staff is one of Aerith's best two weapon options. If players find they need the MP regeneration it provides, it can be an excellent choice for her, and Magic Up Materia Magic Up Materia can be great to make up for its lower magic attack attribute compared to Mythril Rod. Conversely, MP Absorption Materia MP Absorption Materia can be used on Mythril Rod to make up for its own modest MP regeneration, meaning the choice depends on which the player values more between raw damage and sustained MP recovery.

Behind the scenes[]

Concept art of Aerith's staves.

An earlier design of the weapon appears in concept art. In the picture on the right, the Silver Staff is the second from the left, and has more of a "queen chess piece" shaped tips as opposed to the more of a fleur-de-lis shape of the final model for the game.
