Simy because of there different magical specialities. You have to learn Them and a white academy wont teach a black mage and often vice versa( the black guild might teach a white mage for a big fee or quest.but the white mage will probably geht thrown out of his guild then). You want to improve your healing spella with an Ability? Leta hope youre a white vor grey mage.you want to be effective at necromancy? I hope you are a black mage and someone ows you a lot! You want to master elemental forces? Besteht chances if you are grey.
While you can Carry a long Staff in your off hand you cant use it in battle with only one Hand.to dual-wield you would need a 1h Staffel/wand.
Longswords (long weapons in general) are illegal for all guild mages except very few academies. Some use short swords (summoners) or mage- rapiers (shorter version of rapier for show-offs). If you are not in a guild you dont need to care. But good luck then to find (affordable) teachers
Will these special abilities be in the Magic Book, and if so which one? Can you give an example of such an ability for White Mages, and does the Gareth Academy get a special ability/technique of it's own?
If you are guildless that means you typically cannot learn these abilities right? There has to be a disadvantage to be guildless, otherwise why would I play a PC that is constrained by political/guild rules?
Lastly yes I know there are 3 types of Mage Staves; the short and medium can be used one handed and thus used in Dual Weilding.
