1st example - yes, seems weird.
2nd example - no, that's always worked that way. Not all staves are created equal.

I dont have the log, but earlier I wasn't even in combat in waterdeep, I tried to use it on a human merchant....there was a couple of other guys in the inn entrance with me. use staff merchant *click*

better not, you would hit tibbiewissl!

So I cant use this weapon with anyone in the room, and it doesn't work on mobs when im alone either? I want my money back.

Some spells purposefully do not work on certain types of items. If you can please mudmail the areas staff (mwrite areas) with the name of your staff and where you obtained it, they may review and revise the item.

Thanks.

So are you telling me this piece of crap was MEANT not to work? What the hell? Please tell me if im reading this right.

I obtained it off the auction, and now I have a pretty good idea why they sold it.

I'm saying that the spell is not meant to be assigned to a staff. Likely the creater of the area didn't realize this when it was created.

Which is why I also suggested a course of action for you to follow Nurpy, that may result in the item being changed and you gaining a functional staff.

Sure, I'll just contact the seller of the item and ask them where it came from, while I give them a severe ass-chewing for auctioning the piece of sh**.

A lot of times all we need is the name of the object, which you provided in your first post, and a little patience while we get the item fixed rather then constant bitching at the people that try to help you get in contact with the people that can fix something.
Now then, the item is fixed and will be moved into the game soonish. I'm sorry I can't give you an exact date and I don't know if there will be a news entry about it, but when you see the item type change from staff to wand, you'll know its been fixed.

My platinum is very valuable to me. With all the alts I spring up here and there, I can't afford to waste it on stuff that doesn't work. I apologize if I came on too strong at first, but I did not understand what Eilistraee meant. Thank you for fixing the item.

You may be confusing the code by providing a target name, although I am inclined to believe, based on the first example you provided, that there is something funky with the staff.

This issue has existed for years with various other staffs, and at some point it was deemed to be a feature. Various area writers included that in their balancing of certain staffs.
