Of course, I’ve already made a Top 5 Tier sets, and covered dungeon sets extensively. So in this post, and a few more in the series I have planned, I decided to go through my favorite weapons in World of Warcraft: Classic. Keep in mind that these are just my opinions, and that these lists are based on my taste in the visuals and the feeling of accomplishment these items award. Eventually, we’ll look at the swords, daggers, ranged weapons, and more, but for now, let’s get right into it: starting with the staves!
This. Staff. Is. Epic!
So, there you have it: my Top 10 Staves of World of Warcraft Classic. Obviously, there are tons more staves, and even more weapons, available in the game, but these are just my personal favorites. Classic is a huge game, after all, and with so many players, we’re bound to have different preferences though. As always, I’d love to know which staves you think are the coolest, most interesting, or favorite in a different way, so feel free to leave a comment down below with your own opinion as well.
With one of the most badass models in all of Classic, and absolutely insane stats, it’s hard to argue with how amazing the Staff of the Shadow Flame is. First of all, it’s got everything your caster could want: intellect, 2% spell crit, and a whopping 84 plus damage and healing. You can expect that every mage, warlock, and more will be banking their DKP for this bad boy.
Many Horde characters, especially casters, will tell you how iconic this staff is to their early leveling experience. Though simple in design, the Crescent Staff is a reward from the main quest line of the Horde’s second dungeon, Wailing Caverns. Of course, the Staff of Orgrimmar comes first in one’s leveling journey, but this staff from collecting the gems of the Serpent Lords is considerably more powerful and is likely the first blue new Horde players will equip in their leveling journey. Those triple-sevens are nice, the damage is decent, and it’s looks are unparalleled in those early 20s.
The looks aren’t the only awesome thing about it though! It’s got great stats for healers (especially druids) – with tons of spirit and plus healing for those fights that just drag on. What’s more, it can possibly be obtained once every 3 days, since ZG is on a shorter reset timer than other raids in Classic. Oh, and did I mention it’s a freaking snake staff! Live out your Jafar fantasies, healers!
Obtaining this birdie-stick is no easy feat, though. To collect it, one must be in a hardcore raiding guild farming AQ40 and Naxxramas to collect the base, head, and splinters needed to reassemble this bad boy. The work is definitely worth it, though, as each class that can potentially wield this powerhouse gets its own variation – complete with different stats, abilities, and, of course, ribbons!
Obtaining these powerful staves is a rite of passage for every priest in Classic. The feeling when an Eye finally drops for your guild, the exhilarating rush of adrenaline when healing the peasants during the quest, and the feeling of accomplishment when you finally combine those items and obtain that shiny staff at the end all make for an unforgettable experience. Sure, there’s the legendary Atiesh and the fantastic staff from Nefarian which are both amazing weapons, but for me, and many others, Bene-thema reigns supreme. And that’s why it’s my number 1 pick for Classic Staves of World of Warcraft: Classic!
