dissemination ( ( )
|Item Type||Melee weapon|
Staff of corruption dissemination is a melee weapon and one of the Magic staves. When zapped, it emits a 4/3/1 radius burst of corruption, depending on B/U/C status. The PC and monsters within the radius will be corrupted, and items on the ground have a chance to be cursed.
Staves of corruption dissemination can occasionally be useful to curse items that are more valuable with that status, such as potions of raw chaos, potions of invisbility, and potions of raw mana. They are not sufficiently corrupting to be of use against problematic monsters.
They can be found in the same ways as any generic loot.
