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:

  • Cannot 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. Dark sorceries do not perform well with this catalyst.
  • This staff's spell damage softcaps at 45 Faith.

      Useful for alt damage and other effects.12 May 2016 22:38  

      With only 18 INT I was able to use many of the useful Sorceries to supplement my Faith build in terms of damage using HGSA while also being able to go unnoticeable.

        Wtf who had this idea?!30 Apr 2016 23:44  

        Having a staff that purely relies on FTH instead of INT sounds neat at first; but then you remember that INT requirement of all spells that go as high as 55... Wtf FromSoft?

          Testing with dark magic20 Apr 2016 02:31  

          I just tested this using Great Deep Soul against a Court Sorcerer's Staff +5. I have 32 int/32 faith and both staves showed a spell buff of 137 with the Court Staff having the higher reinforcement. Using the Court Staff, GDS hit a thief in high wall for 134 damage while using Archdeacons Staff the spell hit for 174.So I'd say this staff does scale better for dark, seems like maybe it treats your Faith as both stats? Sadly I don't have an Izalith staff to test it against for even spell buff because mine is already +5.
