The only mention of using mana for anything is here:

ITL 148: "Each point of mana can be spent like a point of ST to power spells."

This page also mentions "The wizard must be holding or wearing the staff for it to be useful." So pay $70 to the Wizard's Guild to put five conceal spells on your fine silver dagger and then just keep it in your pocket.
I wonder if Wizards play "Rock, Scroll, Staff"?

I don't see anything that allows a staff's occult strike to be powered by its own store of mana either...

Find a kind of slime that eats wood but not gems. Drop it on the staff and stone. Wait.
