The Astrologer class is perhaps one of the most overpowered classes in Elden Ring, but for players new to a Soulsborne game, it’s the ideal class to start. To master sorceries in becoming an effective yet powerful sorcerer, you’ll need the best staff to complement your magic build.
Although acquiring the best staff in-game will require some elbow grease and defeating two challenging bosses, you can obliterate enemies with a few sorceries having this staff in hand. This guide details the best staff and how to get it in Elden Ring to become an all-powerful master sorcerer.
What Is The Best Staff In Elden Ring?
There are plenty of early-game staffs like the Albinauric and Demi-Human Queen’s Staffs and late-game staffs like the Carian Glintblade and Carian Regal Scepter; only two staffs are neck-and-neck for being considered the best. Azur’s Glinstone and Lusat’s Glinstone Staffs are two of the most powerful staffs in Elden Ring, and depending on the sorcery build, these staffs could be effective in inflicting damage.
Both staffs require 10 Strength and 52 Intelligence to wield and have the disadvantage of all sorceries using more FP to cast, but the Lusat’s Glinstone Staff will need points spent in Mind to boost the FP. T With the Cerulean Hidden Tear in your Flask of Wonderous Physick, which removes FP consumption for a while, allows the weapon to be an effective damage dealer.
Azur’s Glinstone Staff, on the other hand, reduces the casting time of all Sorceries and Incantations but casting Sorceries will cost more. Nevertheless, utilizing high-damaging, one-shot spells like Comet Azur can maximize the staff’s DPS, but it can be enhanced by equipping Azur’s Glintstone Crown, especially any Glinstone sorceries.
After analyzing both staffs, their strengths and weaknesses, and their perks, the Lusat’s Glinstone Staff offers greater damage due to its scaling in Sorcery, which can be increased by adding more points in Intelligence. Nevertheless, it’s possible to wield this staff without needing the Strength requirement, but it will come at the cost of using more Stamina when casting.
How To Get Lusat’s Glintstone Staff In Elden Ring?
Acquiring Lusat’s Glintstone Staff in Elden Ring will be challenging for players as they must face two bosses before owning this weapon. Head to Sellia, Town of Sorcery, by traveling to the Sellia Under-Stair Site of Grace and light the three flames atop the bell towers.
Once all three flames have been lit, a seal in the town will be broken, which grants you access to the boss chamber of the Nox Swordstress and Nox Priest. Defeating the duo will drop the Nox Flowing Sword but go to the back of this chamber where you’ll find a chest, and opening it will award you the Lusat’s Glintstone Staff.
This staff cannot be used with the Ashes of War but can be upgraded using Somber Smithing Stones. Furthermore, you can increase the damage of Lusat’s school of spells like Glinstone Stars, Star Shower, and Stars of Ruins by obtaining Lusat’s Glinstone Crown and equipping the helm item.
And that completes this guide on the best staff in Elden Ring. We want to thank the YouTube channel Gaming with Abyss for the complete walkthrough on achieving this in-game. Please consider subscribing to their channel and watching the video below for more details.
