    I believe the common consensus is that if you have over 400-500 Magic Attack, or plan to just use the staff for meteor then go red. If you don't have that much magic attack, go blue.

    someone did the math years ago and heres the results :o
    When applied to different skills, in order to benefit more from Red Upgrades than Blue Upgrades, you’ll need:
    Icebolt: 454 Magic Attack
    Firebolt: 415 Magic Attack
    Lightning Bolt: 404 Magic Attack
    Ice Spear: 483 Magic Attack
    Fireball: 454 Magic Attack
    Thunder: 464 Magic Attack
    Hailstorm: 561 Magic Attack
    Meteor Strike: 114 Magic Attack
    Lightning Rod: 616 Magic Attack
    Shockwave: 574 Magic Attack

    wouldn't the math be different nowadays, since Lv50 Nele renown increases critical rate cap by 7.5% and Egos can get a bonus that increases the cap by another 5%?

    You're right!
    since we have increased crit rates and also increased crit dmg
    we're likely to crit more and harder which means these old limits would be lower nowadays.

    IMO at 600, the differences are so minimal that the supposed should be more of 700+ MA before red starts showing real big differences in damage

    Blue -> blaze wand
    Red -> The rest

    When it comes to staves, it really depends on your Magic attack.
    I personally wouldn't go for red staff if I had less than 700-800 M.ATT.
