Idle in Earth/Terra staff (-PDT), pretty much everything else in the Chuck Norris of staves.

Swords are like a condom: better to have one and not use it than need it and not have one. Joyeuse comes to mind, Almace if you have it, or something like the Runic/Martial Anelace I guess off the AH. Could just get the Dom Ops one if you just want a stick to swing.

I hope you're not forgetting about the various ToM swords available. STR, INT, and MND come to the fore.

this is the correct answer though endgame there is hardly anything you would be meleeing you should always have a sword handy no matter what. Str ToM/joytoy or you could use the 89 jse. Best sword would have to be almace its quick and easy and CDC does nice damage.

Chatoyant staff or ToM staves for magic.

To carry just in case you want a sword and a dagger and capped skill in both.

Best RDM dagger you can buy: Aluh Jambiya.

There are some nice, (relitavly) easy to obtain swords from Abyssea NMs. My current favorites are the Mageblade and the Chimeric Fleuret, kinda a super Enhancing Sword.

But yeah, its the one staff to rule them all 99% of the time.

Chat for casting most spells, ToM staves are better if you can stand to carry each of them, Idle set can be a Terra Staff though you could also use a PDT Sword & Genbu which is better. If you want melee DPS you probably wont be using /SCH but if you are then stick to Excalibur, Almace, STR Sword, Joytoy, or the Abyssea JSE Sword in order from best to worst I believe. Also you can use the Haste shield if you want which is good if you don't have a particularly good TP set for RDM.
