Voodoo staff

Definition

The Voodoo Staff is a magical item which can send quick energy blasts or even more powerful special attacks, such as Flaming Skull, or Desolation. You hold down the Left-Mouse button or the Ctrl button to charge it up. The staff is a widely respected weapon and widely used around the Caribbean for its power to destroy many enemies at once.

Even more powerful than a Voodoo Doll, staves (or staffs, as most pirates like to call them) allow a pirate to use voodoo spells against enemies at a distance. Unlike the voodoo doll, the staff does not have to be attuned to a target first. Most of the voodoo spells are line-of-sight or have an area or aura effect.

Level Up!

Obtaining the Voodoo Staff

The staff is not available until the pirate reaches Notoriety level 30.

Once summoned by Tia Dalma, the pirate then sets about a major quest to assemble, then charge up the staff as part of the Voodoo Staff Unlock Quest.

The Voodoo Staff can also be unlocked by obtaining the Burnt Staff from the Raven's Cove Story Quest. Reciving the Burnt Staff will automatically unlock the Voodoo Staff weapon. The Voodoo Staff Unlock Quest will stay in the journal but will not need to be completed to use the Voodoo Staff. All that is needed to use the Voodoo Staff is the Cursed Staff which can be purchased from any of the Gypsy's.

With the new loot and inventory system, there are now four different types of staves. There are the original Voodoo Staves from before new weapons were released (Cursed Staff, Warped Staff, Rend Staff, Harrow Staff and Vile Staff), and new types of staves such as Dark Staves, Nature Staves, and Warding Staves.

These auras radiate around the staff user. Any pirate inside the aura will benefit from these effects.

The pirate will receive the Cursed Staff as their first voodoo staff, but more powerful ones are available from a gypsy or by completing additional quests, or from Loot drops. There are not many loot drop staves but most of them aren't very good if you have mastered the Voodoo Staff.

Use

Unlike a voodoo doll, which requires the user to attune their enemy or friend, the staff user just has to aim at their targets. The staff can however not be used to heal allies. To use a staff spell, hold down Ctrl or the Left-Mouse button to 'charge' up the staff before releasing the full spell. Each full casting takes voodoo power. The stronger the spell, the more voodoo it takes and the longer time it takes to cast.

If the spell is interrupted, or the user releases the attack key before the spell is complete, it 'fizzles' and there is no effect at all.

A user can also quickly click the attack button to release a Blast. The blast only does a minimal amount of damage, but it requires no voodoo energy to use. It does take time to charge, so when using it be aware that the enemy will attack you while you are charging unless the enemy is killed with one attack.

Voodoo Staff Skills

The staff greatly enhances the kinds of hexes and abilities the pirate can use with their voodoo power.

Staff blast
Staff soul flay
Staff Pestilence
Staff Wither
Staff Flaming Skull
Staff Banish
Staff desolation


Hex Skills

Most of the Hexes a pirate can use with a voodoo staff are more intended for attacking a group of enemies from a distance, since the user does NOT have to attune it to them.

Hex Description Voodoo Power Cast Time Level Req. Icon
Blast An instant blast of magic.0Instant1Staff blast
Soul Flay A stronger magic.3011Staff frostbeam

Passive Skills

In addition to hexes the pirate has to cast, the Voodoo Staff also can provide abilities that, once learned, are always in effect. These abilities can also apply to the user's Voodoo Doll as well.

Notes

  • The best way to level up the early levels of staff is to go to Kingshead and defeat the Veterans in the center with Wither.
  • Even though it's called a Voodoo Staff it says Wand Level Up when you get to the next level on it.
  • Staff is the only weapons class that has not received many new recent additions. This suggests that, like Voodoo Doll and Dagger, new types may soon be added. You can see what these may be at Unreleased Items page.
