The Staff of Cycles is a silver staff shaped like a shepherds' crook, created from the talismans. It's powers were never fully explained, but Kovo seemed to know some of them. It destroyed the Evertree and made Abeke, Conor, and Rollan feel incredible pain and what might have been the bonding sickness. Apparently, Shane thought that he would get it in exchange for helping Kovo and Gerathon. During the first great war, Kovo used a partial Staff of Cycles to try to control the Evertree but ended up hurting it instead, creating the bonding sickness. However, he could have been trying to destroy the Wyrm.
