First 3 staves are really good, and likely can be priced at well above the 50->100+ black-dyes range imho. Likely more than that if you can get a high enough demand via finding the right buyer(s) for these items.
The most important stats for casters are mostly the HSR/HCT's which in pre are 15/18% respectively. Highest energy is +8 [to my knowledge]. Staff auto-attacking damage (while still useful) can be negligible in many cases, esp. when there's the "Flare" skill involved; while spamming flare, wanding becomes less valuable unless low on energy. The Attribute +1 (18%) is best, especially with the Fire and Death Magic lines.
The last staff (smite) is still quite useful, though it has its blemishes. Probably somewhere between 25-50BD at best, maybe? Maybe more if you can find a buyer who has a high enough demand. Smite items are a little less demanded than Fire, Death, and Domination magic.
Ergo, your staves are all very valuable. It's just a tiny shame that the ele staff's "Air" as opposed to "Fire", but then again wanding as an ele's not really all that important. Air Magic's also a great runner-up secondary investment that offers effective utility. it sure beats being earth or water magic. Not to mention only one charr ele in the northlands can ever drop any purples. So there's that. Hope you find my post helpful. If I'm wrong about anything, then please feel free to post about it. Peace!
