Staves

From Advent of Ascension Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Staves are a special type of item that require Runes. Most Staves are weapons, but not all of them; some can be used to perform other tasks (such as healing the player or summoning allies). Each Stave consumes Runes on use; up to 3 different types of Runes may be required.

Weapon Staves[edit | edit source]

The following staves harm enemies, either through direct damage or by inflicting debuffs. The player can also be harmed by certain staves if they are not careful.
Weapon Staves deal Magic damage, and can be resisted by enemies with Magic Immunity. They are sorted below in alphabetical order, the order can be changed by clicking the arrows on the top of the table.
