I prefer using Staves (at least with low experience mages) because I may be
able to get a modifier of, say 5, (MEL5) while with a wand the same
character might only  be able to get  a modifier of 1 (adj. EL of 1).
    Later the Staff would still be more powerful. A MEL15 EL8 mage would
still prefer the 15 modifier when casting against opponent's MDV. Though he
might keep a wand up his sleeve for when he only needs the 8 modifier to
assure success.
