Skull staff ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? No
Weight 40s
Danger Level 1
Material Wood

Skull staves are a basic type of two-handed weapon. Their base stats are (+0, 1d10+1), and can be found with some variance on the to-hit and damage modifiers.


Though slightly more powerful than a basic quarterstaff, skull staves suffer the same problem: their damage output is poor, and they prevent usage of a shield. Situations in which a skull staff is your best option are few and far between.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Skull staves can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Necromancers may start with one or with a skull dagger.
