The Staff of Fire is one of the favored staves in Origins. However, like the other three staves, it becomes less effective in higher rounds. By upgrading the Staff of Fire it can become one of the most powerful weapons ever added to a zombies map in Call of Duty.

The upgraded staff becomes Kagutsuchi's Blood. The magazine size and ammo reserve doubles. Along with become more powerful, it also gains the ability to be charged. When charged it creates a pool of lava that lasts for ten seconds.

There are a total of seven steps needed to upgrade this weapon. This guide covers steps three and four, since they are the only steps that are specific to this staff. The guide for upgrading the staves discusses in detail the other five steps.

In This Guide:

  • Lighting The Candles
  • Lighting The Torches
  • The Next Step

Lighting The Candles

Before you start this step you should have built all four staves, and have the Staff of Fire equipped.

This step takes place in the Crazy Place. You can get there by building a portal in one of the element mines. Once inside find the fire area. It should see the color red in various spots.

There are four large concrete cylinders that hold four candles. In order to complete this step you must kill Templar Zombies with the Staff of Fire near these candles. The candles will light one at a time as you kill zombies.

The the fourth candle is lit a noise is heard and then Samantha will begin talking. That indicates that this step is complete and you can move on to the next step.

Two sets of Symbols on the wall. The set on the left is 21 in Ternary, which converts to 7 in Decimal. The set on the right is 20 in Ternary, which converts to 6 in Decimal.

Lighting The Torches

The next step is lighting torches in the Church. There numerous torches on the ground level of the church, around the Zombie Tank. These torches all have a number under them, with the exception of torch 4. It has a blood stain covering the number.

There are red symbols on the wall in the top level. They are small circles that are either filled in or an outline. The red circles represent a 1 and the outlines are a zero. These symbols represent numbers. Each column is a separate number. If the column has a single filled circle then it is a 1. If it has an outline it is a zero. If there are two filled circles in the column then it is a 2. The numbers read from left to right, and represent a number in the Ternary Number System. The table below converts Ternary Numbers to Decimal Numbers, which we use.

Shoot the correct torches with the Staff of Fire to light them.

There are also some symbols that are not lit, you can ignore those symbols. But, there should be a total of four lit groups of symbols. These will give you the numbers of the four torches that need to be lit.

Every time I have upgraded the Staff of Fire the numbers have been 3, 4, 5, and 7. However, they might change. Decode the numbers and go to the bottom floor.

  • Find the four numbers that need to be lit.
  • Shoot them with your Staff of Fire to light them.
  • All four need to be lit at the same time, and the flame does not last very long.
  • They do not need to be lit in order, if one goes out you can try to light it before the others also go out.

When this is completed successfully a noise will be heard and Samantha will begin talking to you.

The Next Step

After completing these steps you can move to Step 5 in the Guide for Upgrading the Staves in Origins. Steps 5 - 7 are the same for all four staves, so they are not repeated in the individual guides.

The guide mentioned above will also give information on how to upgrade the Staff of Ice, upgrade the Staff of Wind, and upgrade the Staff of Lightning.
