Carved from darkwood and topped with a small globe of swirling colors, this staff creates small globes of varying hue in the wielder’s hand that can be hurled or fired (as ammunition) at a selected target. The wielder must make a successful ranged touch attack to hit the target. Each orb deals 1d6 points of force damage +1 point per caster level (maximum +20) to the target. If an orb misses the target, it dissipates without further effect. In addition to force damage, each orb creates the following effects according to its hue.
