Runestaves are now eligible to be designated as Creature Bane weapons. The following rules apply to Creature Bane runestaves:

* Like normal runestaves, they do not work with damage or critical weighting.
* All other weapon flares will work, including mana and acuity. If mana flares are selected, they will only flare when casting at a the appropriate creature type.
* The AS bonus can be selected, which will boost bolt AS and warding CS (by 3/5 of the AS amount) on every cast when fighting the appropriate creature type.
* The DS bonus and Parry chance options can also be selected.

As such, you could have a runestaff that normally has fire flares, then also make it a Troll Bane runestaff with double fire flares (first flare from the normal runestaff property and second flare from the Creature Bane), or a Troll Bane runestaff that grants +10 bolt AS/+6 CS when casting at trolls.
