melee weapons. Despite the generally Mysticality-related enchantments on most staves, the player's muscle still determines whether or not they hit. Most staves are 2-handed weapons or more.
Staves should not be confused with chefstaves, 1-handed Mysticality-based weapons which are in a different category altogether.
