Archdeacon's Great Staff is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.
Large staff bestowed upon Archdeacons of the Cathedral of the Deep.
The Archdeacon McDonnell's trespass, the sin of channeling faith for sorcery, transformed what was once merely a symbol of ecclesiastic authority into a catalyst of sorceries.
Skill: Steady Chant
Boost the strength of sorceries for a very short period. Works while equipped in either hand.
Notes and Tips:
- Can NOT be Infused or Buffed.
- Reinforced using Twinkling Titanite.
- Causes sorceries cast to scale entirely with Faith, allowing miracle focused builds to use normal sorceries effectively.
- You will still need to meet the Intelligence requirement of any sorceries in order to cast them.
- Dark sorceries do not gain dual Intelligence and Faith scaling when cast with this catalyst.
- Wielded by Archdeacon Royce.
- Despite having slightly higher spell buff than the Court Sorcerer's Staff at 60 Faith vs 60 Intelligence, this staff actually does about 5% less damage than it with all spells. However, its higher scaling does let it become more powerful than the Court Sorcerer's Staff past 90 Faith vs 90 Intelligence.
Location/Where to Find
- Rank 2 reward from Aldrich Faithful Covenant. (You MUST offer 30 Human Dregs to reach rank 2)
