    Default Melee Clerics - Staff vs Mace

    Staff damage is obviously lower than same level mace counterparts. However i'm using the runebinder mace that has 81-151 damage. This staff that dropped from RoS has 72 -133 damage but has more spell power (like 40, more int and more focus).

    Is the weapon damage so important it's not worth swapping to a staff or what?. Im currently druid/shaman/inquis, and majority of abiliies are weapon damage +.

    What do people think?

    ignore the damage range, weapon damage gets calculated by multiplying the given damage per second value with the normalized weapon speed regardless of which 2h weapon you have.

    edit: actually the staff might be better because jolt procs off white damage crits too so faster weapon damage = more jolts

    Thank you very much, i'd just like to clarify a few points. For weapon upgrades then the range damage 71-151 is irrelevent. So i should just focus on stats + weapon dps (30.5)?
