|A player wielding a Staff|
The Staff is a Guardian class weapon, requiring Staff Training. It's primarily a melee weapon that features high damage, a secondary ranged attack and a variety of damage types. The secondary attack has a short range and a slow rate of fire but requires no ammunition. Fully trained, the Staff grants the ability to deflect incoming fire.
The optimal range for the ranged attack of the Staff is 20 meters - beyond this range the damage dealt will decrease.
While the Staff does have a ranged attack, it does considerably more damage in melee. The player should constantly be seeking to engage enemies at close range, using Rushing Blow to close the distance between foes.
