- Having a very low damage range, staves shouldn't be used in physical combat with the exception of the Flintstaff or when using Consecrate with staves.
- For the Paladin, using Consecrate on staves will replace the intellect stat with a good amount of faith. This is great with Holy skills especially as it makes Holy Armor stronger.
- Using Vital Strike with staves will inflict daze or sleep which is not only good offensively but can also be used as a great escape skill as the Wizard.
- Staff and Holy Staff share the same appearance when equipped by any class that is not the Wizard or Paladin. Makes sense for a non-magic centric unit to think of staves as a "pole to strike with".
