A Psynergy Rod is a Staff-class weapon found in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It is sold as an Artifact in the weapon vendor at Altin in the first game and at Naribwe in the second. Being a Staff, it can be equipped by Ivan, Mia, Jenna, and Sheba. Its buy value is 3800 coins and its sell value is 2850.
The Psynergy Rod increases the wielder's attack by 64. Its Unleash effect is Psy Leech, which is effectively a standard physical attack that adds 22 damage points and then modifies the resulting damage based on the user's Mercury power and the target's Mercury resistance. It may also add 10% of the damage done to the user's own PP meter. Psy Leech visually resembles the user attacking the target and a flurry of orange orbs being siphoned from the target to the user.
In Golden Sun, this should prove a very substantial attack upgrade to whichever caster Adept you give it to, even if he or she is equipped with the previous staff, the Blessed Ankh - which would mean it would be an even more substantial upgrade if the Adept without the Blessed Ankh is equipped with something even weaker, since the Blessed Ankh can always be handed down to the Adept that is equipped with this. This could easily become a hand-me-down once the next staff is bought, the Frost Wand.In The Lost Age, this will likely amount to a good attack upgrade for either Jenna or Sheba when you are able to buy it in Naribwe, since it is stronger than both the Hypnos' Sword and the Blow Mace. The Frost Wand will be purchasable in Kibombo after having completed the Gabomba Statue dungeon later, and there is a chance that the Staff of Anubis may also be randomly dropped in said dungeon, but despite those, this should prove a valuable purchase nonetheless.
