The staff that helped support a summoner on her long pilgrimage to the temples of Spira.Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII description.
The design of the staff is based on the Khakkhara, a staff used by practitioners of Buddhism. The staff is used primarily for prayer, but also functions as a walking stick and a weapon if necessary. Khakkhara have rings around them of various numbers (most often six) designed to jingle as the holder walks, meant to frighten away small creatures so that the monk will not step on them, as well as alert people to the holder's presence.
The Summoner's Staff can be obtained as part of the "Spira's Summoner" downloadable content schema. In its basic form, it raises Lightning's Strength by 100 points and Magic by 330 points, but reduces Stagger Power by 25%. It can be bought from the main menu in the Rewards Barter Shop menu; first buy is free, but following will cost 200,000 gil.
