For other uses, see Staff.

Unlike in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Staves (or Staffs), are not melee weapons, but rather are magical weapons that are usually imbued with a magical attack, such as hurling out fireballs. Sneak attacks cannot be done with them. They can usually be found on conjurers and other magic-using enemies. In the later level Mages Guild Quests many will be dropped by slain necromancers.

As a general rule, staffs weigh 10 WeightIcon.png. This applies to almost every staff except for the unique staffs. The unique staffs may vary in weight, some being heavier, others being lighter.

The player is able to create a personal staff upon gaining access to the Arcane University. The enchantment on it is leveled. Staffs may be purchased in the Imperial City Market District at Rindir's Staffs.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The regular wooden staves bear a resemblance to the staff that Gandalf the Grey used in the Lord of the Rings live action movies.
  • If you have two identical staves (example, 2 Greater Staff of Storms), they can be recharged for free using a bug. Simply use one of the staves, then un-equip it. The two will stack and automatically recharge.
