Court Sorcerer's Staff is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Catalyst used by the court sorcerers of the Profaned Capital. Very powerful when wielded by an exceptionally intelligent sorcerer.

The court sorcerers laid claim to the legacy of the renowned Big Hat Logan, going so far as to emulate him with copies of the staff he used.

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 with Titanite.
  • At 60 INT it has a spellbuff of 238.
  • Has the highest spellbuff of all staves at 50 INT and above.
  • Ignoring the weapon art, this staff is the most powerful in the game for non-dark sorceries. Sage's Crystal Staff outdamages it while its weapon art is active, and Izalith Staff does more damage with dark sorceries but less with non-dark sorceries.



Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped by a mimic in the toxic swamp area of Profaned Capital. The mimic is on the second floor of the church looking building that is full of hand beasts.

        At 55 int+fth, the Izalith Staff has a spell buff of 254, while this one just scales with int and has only 220 spell buff with the same 55 int.

        For a mixed int/fth build, Izalith Staff is much better with all sorceries, and even more so with dark sorceries.

        At those same stats, the Crystal Chime has a spell buff of 226. That's a 6 higher spell buff from a chime that can cast both miracles and sorceries, versus the Court Sorcerer' s staff.

            These pages should show the spellbuff at 40 INT builds as well. Not everyone goes upto 60 INT. Anyway, at 40 INT Sorcerer's Staff is better this one as its spellbuff is higher. This is the best staff for high INT build though (normal Sorceries, for dark ones Murky staff is best for mid-levels and Izalith's best when combined with Faith). It's only outdamaged by Archdeacon's staff at 90 FTH build who builds a Sorcerer with 90 FTH anyway.

              It should be noted that, when both are unupgraded, the Court Sorcerer's Staff and the Heretic's Staff have the same spell buff (170) at exactly 49 intelligence.

                    Alright, so check this out. I did a damage comparison with this staff at 60fth vs Court Sorcerer's Staff at 60int, and it turns out that despite having 3 extra spell buff AGS is in fact WEAKER than CSS by about 5% in all areas (and 8% for Great Farron Dart and Affinity). I'm updating the page with this information, please don't remove it unless you get conflicting information in another test.

                    "Damage test with Court Sorcerer's Staff 60int (238 spell buff) vs Archdeacon Great Staff 60fth (241 spell buff). Same character, same NG cycle (+14 or so). Young Dragon Ring, Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring, Magic Clutch Ring, Dark Clutch Ring, Crown of Dusk, and Scholar's Candlestick (right hand). Steady Chant applied before each cast.

                    CSS (238 spell buff, 60int)
                    Great Soul Arrow: 570
                    Great Heavy Soul Arrow: 1032
                    Great Farron Dart: 161
                    Crystal Soul Spear: 1336
                    White Dragon Breath: 1146
                    Great Deep Soul: 418
                    Affinity: 715
                    Dark Edge: 743

                    AGS (241 spell buff, 60fth)
                    Great Soul Arrow: 540 (5% weaker)
                    Great Heavy Soul Arrow: 980 (5% weaker)
                    Great Farron Dart: 149 (8% weaker)
                    Crystal Soul Spear: 1276 (4-5% weaker)
                    White Dragon Breath: 1090 (5% weaker)
                    Great Deep Soul: 395 (5% weaker)
                    Affinity: 660 (8% weaker)
                    Dark Edge: 704 (5% weaker)"

                      Could someone give me the spellbuff for this weapon in increments of 15? (15, 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90)It would be appreciated due to me wanting to try and get the best and I wonder when I should stop with the int.

                              I, for one, own a french copy of the game and guess what, the staff is directly named "logan's catalyst" ... did they do it on purpose ? Description doesn't change much though.

                                    These tables should show the spell buff for catalyst. I think thats the most important stat for casters.
