    Default Mage weapons

    For dps what is best? One Handers or a two handed staff?

    Whichever has the best stats, the only differences are cosmetic.

    Main difference is that 2h legendary staff is dropped by Crucia and 1h from Regulos (which is definitely harder)
    You should give the power to one who doesn't want to use it

    The 2H legendary staff BIS requires both Regulos/Crucia hearts.

    Only saw the Baleful Dreadstaff drop once and it required both hearts at the time before it could be the Beholder of Desolation, where as the other staffs only required Crucia hearts.


    Ah well.

    We're still yet to see one after like 8-10 kills? Not a single Chest off Twins either and only one pair of pants. Pants need to drop more.

    But yeah pretty sure it's Heart of Regulos + 500 plat mat for the upgrade.

    Also check your end stats on your character sheet. With my PA points, I get a lot more SP with a 1h than a staff. So a staff would need significantly more SP to be better than a 1H OH.
