    Default PvP weapons: 2H staff or sword+tome?

    Im sure this has been answered before but i just cant find the answer.

    I will grow out of my long faithful staff and will use PvP gera weapons. Which is better? 2H or sword+tome? The combo seems better (stat wise - at least for rank 4) on paper but i would apreciate any input.

    Just saying - in the long run while 1h/Oh might be better now, you'll save yourself some favor by picking up staffs.

    Guess it makes sense on the long run.. sooner or (MUCH) later it will be for the better. TX

    Buy a http://rift.zam.com/en/item/ADCBC5CE...-of-the-Titans from the AH and get the sword from the Port Scion faction vendor. That should be good till R6

    1h/OH costs the same as Staff.
    The Staff has slightly better SP/Crit, while the 1H/OH combo has better base values.

    I picked 1h/OH for style reasons, since they fixed powerstones. P8 Guardian Staff looks like a kitchen utensil to me.
    The other advantage is that you're slightly more flexible with upgrades, enchants and things.

    But in the end, the difference is low enough, so you can pick whatever pleases you.

    Difference iirc is 13SP/4crit vs 10 endurance Going for 1h/OH combo on my mage since the staff looks terrible and book offhands with fire storm look boss.
