Staves are two-handed staff weapons, and occupy 1x3, 1x4 or 2x4 inventory or stash spaces when not equipped:

Size
1x3 1x4 2x4
  • Short Staff
  • Long Staff
  • Gnarled Staff
  • Battle Staff
  • War Staff
  • Jo Staff
  • Quarterstaff
  • Cedar Staff
  • Gothic Staff
  • Rune Staff

Staves have 100 Strength bonus when calculating attack damage, so % Damage = Strength. As blunt weapons, they also have +50% Damage to Undead.

Normal, superior, magic and rare staves can spawn with up to three +(1-3) bonuses to individual Sorceress skills.

When staves are equipped by a Barbarian, Mace Mastery applies.
