    Is this staff worth keeping?

    Hi. I just found this staff, and I'm not sure if I should keep it or ditch it. The stats look pretty nice to me, but I'm not really a sorc person, so I'm not sure. :uhhuh: Here are the stats:
    +2 sorc skills
    9% ll
    +2 fire mastery
    +1 chilling armor
    +1 thunder storm
    50% dmg to undead
    Thanks!

    Why it isn't...

    The thing with staffs is that it doesn't allow you to use a shield. I personally like max block, so shields are important to me.

    Second of all, although the +2 skill is nice, the other +skill mods are not useful skills. You can find better skill mods like +2 or 3 to fireball, frozen orb, meteor, etc. It would be better to have that on a +1allskills than yours...

    That said, if you have nothing else better, use it :)

    i think..if the staff fits ur level currently..it would be a pretty nice staff u can use till u can find something nicer..+2 skills is v nice for low level characters :innocent:

    lets hope the staff does not have a lvl 60 req.. :scratch:

    Compare it to oculus, or heck even chromatic ire (like 5 gems to get) and draw your own conclusions ;)

    I'd probably use it with a new sorc until NM, then I switch to orb + shield.

    I hate the look of the orb + shield and prefer a staff but blocking is good and shields help me in getting max resists.

    Staff...

    The staff is poop, sell it, unless it's one of the unique ones you're going to be hard pressed to find a good staff that's worth using over an orb/shield, especially with all the easy to get orbs/ + skill shields. I normally pull a +1 or +2 orb from nm / hell anya every time.

    Worthy staff?


    Just my $0.02 but you can make LEAF with Tir and Ral that give you +3 to Fire skills, +3 to Fire Bolt and +3 to Warmth. Grand total of +6 to Warmth which is nice. My level 81 Sorc still uses Leaf (until I find something nicer, or have enough gold to buy nicer) I saw a staff in Act 5 Hell for almost a Million gold that had +2 to Skills, +2 to Blizzard, +2 to Meteor, +2 to TStorm and +2 to something else that I don't recall right now. Problem was, I was broke.

    I found a short staff with 2 sockets and a nice skill bonus

    The resulting leaf staff:

    +3 Fire skills
    +2 Fire Mastery
    +3 Hydra
    +3 firebolt
    +3 fireball
    +3 warmth

    :)
