The Guru's staff appears to have broken, but this is the most important piece since it still holds his powerful Moon Stone! Maybe one day you can help him repair the staff, but, for now, all damage to the player is reduced by 50%!
― In-game description[src]
After collecting the Guru's Staff Piece, whatever character the player controls will take only half damage.
