Cursed Staffs

Cursed Staffs are Mage weapons with a focus on powerful sustained damage and debuffs, incorporating a mix of both single-target and AoE attacks. Cursed Staffs are unlocked by the Warlock node on the Destiny Board.

Once unlocked, the following weapons can be used:

Standard Weapons: Crafted using common resources, these weapons tend to be much easier to obtain than Artifact Weapons.

Weapon Type
  Cursed Staff 1-hand
  Great Cursed Staff 2-hand
  Demonic Staff 2-hand

Artifact Weapons: Require specific artifact items to craft, start with higher Item Power than Standard Weapons, and benefit less from Enchantment Levels.

Weapon Type Crafted Using Base IP Bonus
  Lifecurse Staff 1-hand   Lost Cursed Crystal (Rune Artifact) +1 tier
  Cursed Skull 2-hand   Cursed Jawbone (Soul Artifact) +2 tiers
  Damnation Staff 2-hand   Bloodforged Catalyst (Relic Artifact) +3 tiers
