Staff weapon skill

  • Skill level: 230
  • In order to obtain Retribution, the quest Blood and Glory must be completed.
  • Delivers a single-hit attack. Damage varies with TP.
  • Despite the appearance of throwing the staff, this is not a long-range Weapon Skill like Mistral Axe. The range only extends a short distance beyond normal meleeing range.


  • Damage Multipliers by TP:
100%TP 200%TP 300%TP
2.00 2.50 3.00


  • While Paladins may obtain skill level 230 earlier than level 71, Retribution must be quested once base skill level 230 (without merits) and job level 71 is reached (requires the ability to wield Pole of Trials).

Paladin A- 67
Warrior B 71
Monk B 71
Summoner B 71
Black Mage B- 73
