Dragon Claw Staff
Aura moderate abjuration and transmutation; CL 7th
Slot none; Price 9,500 gp; Weight 8 lbs
Description
This item is carved from oak seized from the sacred groves of the forest gods, and tipped with a dragon’s claw magically honed and hardened. The entire staff slowly
takes on the color of the dragon whose claw was used in its construction.

These weapon can be used as a +1/mwk quarterstaff or as a +1 scythe and when used to disarm or trip, as either weapon type, it provides an additional +1 CMB. Each staff is keyed to a particular energy type (fire and lightning being the most common) and by taking a free action the staff may be given the appropriate weapon quality (flaming, frost, shock, or what have you). Also the wielder gains resistance to that energy type 3 for a full round. When fighting within 60 ft. of an ally who is also using a dragon claw staff, the wielder gains a +1 enhancement bonus to initiative, a +2 enhancement bonus to
Perception and a +1 shield bonus to armor class.
