The Experimental Staff is a prototype of Grand Staff. Like Grand Staff, it is an enormous magic engine capable of gathering and outputting large amounts of magic energy. In fact, the magic energy that it has been outputting is directly responsible for the monster disturbance in the Black Cave and the bizarre events transpiring in Saman, which is analogous to Grand Staff bringing about the meteor that struck the Highlands of Wohl. When Kaim and the rest of the party discover the Experimental Staff, it is in the process of being disassembled so that its components can be transported to Grand Staff where they are supposed to expedite construction and greatly increase magic energy output.
