Plural of staff - is it staffs or staves

Wizards use them to enhance their magic powers - a staff.  My question is, what is the correct plural form of the word "staff"?  Normally, if a word ends in an "F" like "leaf", you change the "F" to a "V" and add "es", making "leaf" become "leaves".  I otherwise don't see "stafves" though I see a near-even mix of both "staves" and "staffs".  Which is the correct plural of "staff" or is that one of those odd cases where both are equally correct?
