This is an Official Player's Guide from the Pirates Online Website.
Attacking with the Voodoo Staff
Unlike the Voodoo Doll, the Staff does not need to attune to a target. Like the Doll, the Staff works well from a distance. When attacking in a group, your mateys can engage the enemy at close quarters while you keep to the edges casting multiple hexes.

Look for one of these outside of every town. They are your source for all things Voodoo and health tonics, which can come in handy when you want to survive a tough fight. Bring cash. No one gives credit to a Pirate.
If it has a blade, you've come to the right place. Visit a blacksmith to invest in a new dagger or a higher grade of cutlass.
Ready to buy a better pistol or try out more powerful ammo? Visit the gunsmith in the nearest town. You can also buy cannon ammo and grenades here as well.
