In the starting zone of the Elden Ring game, there aren’t that many staff members. Fans of Dark Souls who have played it for a long time will remember that staffs and sorceries in the first game were not very strong or impressive. With Elden Ring, witchcraft and magic are back in a big way, and players will find a lot of different spells and staffs to use. Each staff has a little something different that helps to set it apart from the others. Down the road, people who like magic do have access to some great staff. Here are some of the most common figures in the game to help you figure out who you are.
1. Azur’s Glintstone Staff with Intelligence for spellcasters
Even though flex builds can’t use it, Azur’s Glintstone Staff is the best staff for sorcerers in the game. You can find Master Azur’s Glintstone Staff deep in the Academy of Raya Lucaria. But be aware of the staff’s drawbacks before you decide to use it in your build. For example, the Radagon Icon and raising Dexterity are two other ways to reduce cast time that don’t increase the FP cost of Sorceries.
It can be found in Raya Lucaria Academy behind many hidden passages. Before they can finally get to it the second floor of the Church of Cuckoo, players will have to find a few hidden walls and solve a lot of jumping problems. The work is worth it, though, because this stuff is so powerful and has a high scaling that it just tears.
The worst thing about this stuff is that every spell uses up more FP. It cuts down on the time it takes to cast, but it costs more FP. Full sorcerer builds shouldn’t have too much trouble making up for these bad things, but it can be hard to get used to the extra FP cost. Overall, Azur’s Glintstone Staff is the best staff in Elden Ring for pure spellcasters.
2. Lusat’s Glintstone Staff – Primarily with Strength and Intelligence
There are several ways to get to Sellia Town of Magic. Before they can get to Lusat’s Glintstone staff, players will have to go to Caelid. First, players need to find a certain chest that, when opened, traps them and sends them to the Sellia Crystal Tunnel. They can leave right away and cross a “lake” from there. Limgrave is where you can find the Dragon-Burnt Ruins. This is close to where your journey as a Tarnished will start.
You can also just type Caelid to get there. When you get there, there will be an open gate to the town to your south. To get to the boss fight in Town of Sorcery, players have to figure out how to get past the Barrier Puzzle.
After finishing the puzzle, players will be able to go through the boss door in the north of the town. It is right next to the Sellia Underground-Stair Site Of Grace, which is to the north. When players enter the “room,” they will be thrown into a boss fight with the Nox Swordstress and the Nox Priest at the same time. After defeating the bosses, players can go to a cemetery. (located at the North end of the arena). Inside is the Glinstone staff of the Lusat.
3. The Meteorite Staff – scales Intelligence
The Meteorite Staff might be Elden Ring’s best early-game staff. The Sellia Crystal Cave can be reached early on through a chest that has been set up to do so. After securing the Site of Grace in the tunnel, players can fast-travel away and still use the Sellia Crystal Tunnel whenever they want. After getting Elden Ring’s horse, Torrent, players with 18 or more Intelligence points should go back to the Sellia Crystal Tunnel Grace, then leave the dungeon to explore the Aeonia Swamp.
Here, players should look for the Street of Sages Ruins, where the Meteorite Staff is guarded by several flowers that cause Scarlet Rot. If the player can get the flowers to move out of the way, they can sneak up on the staff and take it. This staff gives a bonus to Gravity Sorcery and has an S that goes up with Intelligence. The Meteorite Staff makes the Rock Sling spell even better in the early and middle stages of the game. Keep in mind that this staff can’t be improved in any way, so around level 50-60, it will start to break down and become very weak.
4. The Rotten Crystal Staff – The Rot status effect
In Elden Ring, the Crystal Staff is a member of the Glintstone Staff family. It can’t be infused with any Ashes of War, but its special passive ability is enough to give all of your Crystalian Sorceries in the game a big boost.
In Elden Ring, it’s easy to miss the Crystal Staff. This is because the weapon is hidden behind a path that you can only get to by breaking down a wall. The Crystal Staff is in the Academy Crystal Cave, which is in the Liurnia of Elden Ring area. Moving from the Crystalline Woods Grace toward the north side makes it easy to get to the cave.
To get into the cave, you need to use the Stonesword key at the door. As soon as you walk into the cave, you need to head toward the wooden door shown below. When you open the door, look to the left to find the secret path to the next room. You can break the stones to get to the chest with the Crystal Staff in Elden Ring.
Using the Crystal Staff in Elden Ring, you can do about 31 physical damage and between 148 and 189 magic damage to enemies at first. The Staff also gives you a very small amount of damage reduction against all kinds of enemy hits.
Somber Smithing Stones can be used to improve the Crystal Staff. You can do 75 physical damage with the upgraded Staff. Your magic scaling goes up from 244 to 367 in Elden Ring. To get all of these upgrades in the game, you need to scale your Strength to D and your Intelligence to B.
Crystal Staff’s passive increases the damage done by Crystalian powers by 10%. This includes spells like Crystal Release, Crystal Shatter, and Crystal Tornado. So, if you have this Staff, you can fight different enemies well.
5. Dark Souls 2 – Power Stance
Dark Souls 2 is very much the black sheep, and it has been criticized a lot over the years. Even among people who don’t hate it, most people have forgotten about it.
I feel like its creativity and variety have been almost totally ignored. For a long time, I thought that the first sequel to Dark Souls would be a one-off, a failed exercise, or a dead end. So, Elden Ring felt like a huge confirmation of how much I love Dark Souls 2. At times, it almost feels like its spiritual heir.
Earthen Peak has a windmill on top of poison gas valleys, No Man’s Wharf is an abandoned dock where weird, twisted beings avoid the light, and The Dragon Aerie is high above the Earth. Dark Souls 2 is the only Souls game I’ve played that gives me the same feeling of excitement as Elden Ring.
- Demon’s Souls – World Tendency
FromSoftware’s first try at making a Soulsborne-like game was Demon’s Souls, which was only moderately successful on its own. Dark Souls was the game that brought this series to a new level of fame. But it was Demon’s Souls that set up the formula and added some of its own twists.
First of all, the game had a feature called “World Tendency”. Which changed how hard or easy the game was based on how morally good or bad the players were. Both White and Black World Tendency have different effects on the world of Demon’s Souls. Players who don’t want to make the game too hard for themselves shouldn’t be too evil in the game.
7. Staff Of Loss
The Staff of Loss is different from most of the other staves on this list because its power has little to do with how its base spells scale. Instead, what makes it so good is its additional ability: it makes spells that make you invisible work 30% better. Only Night Shard and Night Comet are affected. But it turns out that these spells can be very helpful.
Some of the more annoying bosses and NPC invaders won’t be able to avoid these spells, making them one of the best ways to deal with them. In New Game Plus, you can get a second Staff of Loss, which makes this approach even better because it gives your Invisibility Sorceries a 60% boost. The Staff of Loss is on the roof of a dead person in Sellia, Town of Sorcery.
8. Carian Regal Scepter
Talking to Enia, a finger reader who lives in Roundtable Hold, is the only way to get the Carian Regal Scepter. To get the staff, players must turn in their Remembrance of the Full Moon Queen.
Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon is a two-stage boss fight. Players must first make their way through an endless number of Rennala’s “sweeting” children. As Rennala rises above them, one of them will sing to keep a wall around her. If the player kills enough of them, she will fall to the ground and the player will be able to attack her. From there, the second stage is a more traditional boss fight against a stronger Rennala who uses a range of spells.
The Memory of the Full Moon Queen can be traded for either the Carian Regal Scepter or Rennala’s Full Moon magic. The Carian Regal Scepter increases Rennala’s Full Moon’s damage by 15% for people who stop a Mausoleum to get a second memory.
The Carian Regal Scepter is one of the best staves in all of Elden Ring. Any sorcery-focused player should think about getting it. It does a good amount of damage and has many ways can use. It also has a special version of the Spinning Weapon Ash of War skill.
Not every player will be able to get as much out of the Carian Regal Scepter as possible. In the early and middle game, the Meteorite Staff is the best staff. The Carian Regal Scepter doesn’t do more damage than the Meteorite Staff until the player has a high intelligence level and has upgraded the Carian Regal Scepter a lot. Once players pass these points, the Carian Regal Scepter does more damage than almost any other weapon.
9. Prince of Death’s Staff
The Prince of Death’s Staff is similar to the Gelmir Glintstone Staff, but it is better. This is also a staff that gets stronger as your Intelligence or Faith goes up, but it has the ability to get much stronger. In terms of raw damage, this is the best staff in Elden Ring. However, it needs a lot of Intelligence and Faith before it can reach its full potential. With 80 Intelligence and 80 Faith, it’s clear that this is a more NG+ team.
As a passive benefit, the Prince of Death’s Staff makes Death spells 10% more powerful. When compared to other staffs, the boost isn’t very amazing, but in Elden Ring, every little bit helps. Also, Death sorceries are already pretty strong, so the silent effect of the staff is just the icing on the cake. Some death sorceries are Ancient Death Rancor, Explosive Ghostflame, Fia’s Mist, Rancorcall, and Tibia’s Summons.
10. Carian Glintstone Staff
Scaling-wise, the Carian Glintstone Staff isn’t as good as the Academy Glintstone Staff. But it has a very useful passive effect that makes Carian sword sorceries 15% stronger. This includes spells like Adula’s Moonblade, Carian Slicer, Carian Piercer, and Carian Greatsword. All of these spells are great for straight mage builds that don’t use any weapons. It goes without saying that the staff is less useful in builds that focus on other kinds of sorcery.
Even though it doesn’t have its own entry on this list, the Carian Glintblade Staff is also worth noting because it’s very similar to the Glintstone variant. This one is different because it makes Glintblade spells like Carian Phalanx and Carian Retaliation 15% stronger. If a player wants to go all in on the Carian school of magic, they might want to use both staff at the same time.
