Staff of members of the Archdrake sect of Lindelt. A catalyst for sorceries and hexes.

In Lindelt, known for its clerics and their miracles, sorcery is believed to be a profane practice.

But as with anything, such beliefs are part faith and part front, and this staff was born of that hypocrisy.

Hints and Tips:

  • an average balanced staff, nothing notable, though it has slightly better Dark scaling despite both are B scaling
  • inferior to Black Witch's Staff due to the lack of spells variety.

      A decent stopgap for Sorcerers. You can use it to upgrade from your dinky Sorcerer's Staff you use early in the game until you get to the Staff of Wisdom in Brightstone Cove Tseldora (SotFS only). Do note the 15 Faith requirement, which can be traded in at a later point if you have a Soul Vessel. Experienced players might want to give this a miss entirely by getting to the Shaded Woods, beating the Scorpioness boss and getting to Tseldora to pick up the staff. For Hexers it's less useful, mainly because the person who will sell you this (Felkin the Outcast) will give you the Sunset Staff at 20+ Int and Faith (which is 7 levels above the requirements of this weapon, and requires 2 additional levels to actually wield it).
