Question on Magian staves...Follow

Let me start by saying that ToM has become the bane of my ffxi existence in the last few weeks. Anyways...

I see that there is an att and an acc staff for each and that the +4 stat is better than the HQ staffs but the +1 stat is equal to the NQ staffs.

What I'm confused about is where the ice staff with INT+6 and MAB+10 and the dark staff with MP+75 and Macc+16 fit into the spectrum. To me, it looks obvious that Macc+16 > Macc+4, but I'm not really sure what the magic affinity stat is referring to. :(

Would the Macc+16 staff be better for sleep/aspir/drain than the +4 dark macc staff? Is it below the NQ staves or somewhere in between? And, is the MAB staff comparable at all to the current elemental staffs and M att magian staffs?

I would love to just pick up the Macc+16 staff to cover all enfeebles. Separate staffs for BLM SMN and BRD are really going to take a toll on my inventory.

Edit: "I see that there are is a att staff.." I'm sorry, English language :(

The +4 is for elemental affinity not +4 Macc.

Elemental staves give about 20 Macc for NQ and about 30 Macc for HQ.

It has been speculated that the Magian trail staves give 40 Macc for the +3 affinity and 50 Macc for the +4 affinity.

All of these staves are much better than that +16 Macc staff.

But you still need Dark Staff for hmp. I start my elemental staves tomorrow on smn so i have them when blm hits 75.
83 - WHM 82 - BLM
77 - SMN 76 - DRK

I solo for xp on odd job combos. SMN/THF FTW!
Never get too attached to a group and consider them as an online family. You'll just get hurt.

Ah.. Well that's not the answer I was hoping for but thanks for clearing that up, Kaup. :)

And Shastal, it looks like I'll be keeping most of my level 51 staffs for various reasons. At least I can trade in my Pluto's Staff for a normal Dark Staff soon, though. Of course, the HQ staffs might be next to worthless by the time I get around to completing my dark +4 macc staff.
