A staff said to have been forged in Aldia. A catalyst for sorceries and hexes. Particularly powerful for casting hexes.

The mysterious Lord Aldia secluded himself inside a manor to conduct various experiments. Those invited to the manor disappeared, replaced over time with malformed beasts that roamed its halls. 

Acquired From

  • Given by Felkin the Outcast, in Huntsman's Copse, if your INT and FTH are both 20+. Talk to him and exhaust his conversation path, and he will give you the staff and the Hexer's Set (If your INT and FTH isn't high enough then use a soul vessel to respec your stats so your INT and FTH are 20+ and then use another soul vessel to change back your stats).
  • Outside Aldia's Keep left to the stairs there is an iron chest (mimic) containing another staff. This one is also useful if you want to complete Royal Sorcerer Navlaan's questline without actually killing Felkin when you do not have the required INT and FTH to obtain his staff. Note: The mimic does not drop the staff in SotFS

 

Hints and Tips:

  • The best staff for hex damage, especially infused with Dark. It has respectable magic damage, though not nearly as high.
  • The only downside is its casting speed is somewhat slow, as well as its relatively low durability compared with other catalysts.
  • If you want to seek for a faster Hex dedicated catalyst, try Witchtree Branch or equip a Clear Bluestone Ring to cope with the cast speed.
