Staff Guide - Throne And Liberty

Of the 7 weapons in Throne And Liberty, it's the staff that's primarily focused on dealing magic damage. The wand and tome are capable of that but it's mostly for support roles. If you want to become an amazing wizard using the staff, then you've come to the right place.

Throne And Liberty: Staff Guide

The staff is a magic weapon that lets you harness the powers of Fire, Ice, and Lighting. In the right hands, a staff build is capable of stopping all sorts of trouble in the game. That's because the staff gives you the ability to crowd control and deal heavy damage to groups of enemies.

The downside to the staff however is that you're going to be very vulnerable up close if enemies manage to survive your initial spells. Staff users work best when protected by other players but alone, you'll have to combine the staff with a good melee weapon to cover all bases. Let's talk about the abilities of this class first.

Staff Active Abilities

Since you can only equip 12 abilities in the game, you need to be wise in picking which skills to add to your hotkeys. Due to the insane damage and crowd control capabilities of the staff user, some players even allocate only staff skills. While risky, such a strategy is effective in a group.

It's tough to recommend which skills to use for the Staff because they're all decent. However, you need to keep this thing in mind.

  • Fire - Fire skills deal damage over time through Burning. The Burning effect stacks so it's great to use against enemies with high HP.
  • Ice - Ice skills can slow enemies. With enough stacks, you'll eventually Freeze enemies in place.
  • Lightning - Lightning magic is simpler. This is best used for AoE damage as the lightning will constantly bounce off enemies.

It's recommended to focus your skills on one or two elements. Fire skills are very important as this deals the most damage out of all the elements. It's good to partner this with Ice magic so that you can hold enemies in place as you deal damage to them.

Staff Passive Abilities

For the passive abilities, you can only choose 8. What you get will depend on what element you choose to focus on. However, we highly recommend getting at least these two:

  • Asceticism - An excellent passive especially for generating mana that you'll need to cast skills with. If you partner it with Ice magic, you'll have a steady mana source. If not this, make sure to get Asceticism instead.
  • Echoic Barrier - One of your biggest enemies as a staff user is the Silence status effect. With this passive, you'll have extra survivability up until you're able to cast spells again.

Best Combos For Staff

  1. Wand And Tome

The wand is the best combo for the staff. You can utilize the mana regeneration passives from the wand skill tree. You're going to turn your character into a full caster class with this combo. What makes it great is that you're able to support your team with healing magic while dealing heavy damage from afar.

  1. Longbow

If you want physical damage, we recommend using the longbow instead. It has superb range as well so you don't have to make major adjustments when changing weapons. The support abilities also make you an all-around character for solo or party setups.
