      While the +50% FP cost might seem cruel, it seems like this staff is more focused on defeating enemies and bosses in few casts, so an increase in FP cost makes sense.
      ...Although, 50% is a lot... and that makes it less considerable as a staff when it's only around 10% better than the Carian Regal Scepter. 20-30% would have been enough, I think...

      • Anonymous

        I'm finding some good use with this, but ONLY in one specific situation: bosses I can kill with one long cast of Comet Azur.

        Lusat's Glintstone Staff + Azur's Glintstone Crown + Magic Scorpion Charm + Graven Mass Talisman + Terra Magica + Wonderous Physick (Magic Shrouding Craced Tear and Cerulean Hidden Tear)

        All of that gives a few seconds of highly buffed and FP free Comet Azur and it SLAPS like an A-10 Warthog cannon from 10 feet away. It's very situational and it can fail a lot, and then I feel like I'm up crap creek with nothing but this FP-leaky staff as a paddle

        Still it is gratifying when it works, especially on annoying bosses like those Ulcerated Tree Spirits. I ran an STR build on my first run through (my usual first build on a FromSoft game) and Esgar Priest of Blood took me like a dozen tries. I didn't expect Comet Azur to work on him because he was so fast, but Esgar kept leaping back and forth across the path of the beam!

        • I know it has to be less efficient than the less damaging staffs for the sake of balance, but 50% increase of fp cost in return for 10% more damage compared to the Carian Regal Scepter is just nuts. 20% more fp costs would be enough I guess

            Prince Of Death staff is what I use on my main build, granted im level 295 but late late game theres no reason to use lusats over POD

              Even if the efficiency is poor, if it enables you to kill a boss in fewer casts (or if you need to drink after every cast of your Big Spell), this staff will always come out on top.

              If casting a small spell with this means it will one shot a target when the next staff takes two casts, this staff is more efficient. The problem is that you need to invest resources and time to test each staff, on each boss/enemy, and very few people want to do that. So on-paper stats are generally what people will gravitate towards.

              Don't throw this in the bin unless you can't be arsed to actually try using it in a multitude of situations.

                Scaling at 80 int:
                Lusat's Glintstone Staff +10: 413
                Carian Royal Scepter +10: 373

                That’s a 9.7% (rounded down) increase for a 50% increase in spell cost. Given this is for burst damage, one must question the benefit if one must stop dealing damage to chug blue every two or three casts.

                I can see only one purpose for this staff – crossing the breakpoint between killing an enemy in two casts, and killing an enemy with one cast. This is inferior for PVE DPS given the extra chugging required, particularly if the player has a narrow window and misses out on an extra cast due to chugging blue.

                I appreciate that a straight increase in damage and increase in FP cost to match is not balanced. I recognize that the higher DPS potential must come at a premium. That said, I think the scales are tipped too far for this one. 50% FP increase for a 9.7% DPS increase doesn’t seem like a good option. I think 30/10 or 40/20 would be more fair.

                Personally I’ll stick with the Carian Scepter in all circumstances. Perhaps this is better for PVP, but who wants to slot that many blue flasks and miss out on heals in PVP?

                  This staff is good if you have more than 30 mind and multiple sorcery buffs. Otherwise I would use another staff since 50% more fp consumption is really steep.

                  For example If you are using this staff with say all 3 talismans that boost sorcery damage as well as the tear that boosts sorcery at 80 INT since they all stack multiplicatively your damage will be absolutely nuts especially if you are duel wielding staffs casting say carian slicer for a casual 700 - 800 damage.

                  However if you are not stacking things to boost sorcery damage I simply would run another staff, the slightly higher damage isn't worth the cost.

                  • Anonymous

                    Not worth using in PvP IMO. Drinking blue is the biggest weakness of casters and this staff makes you do it way more often for 100~ extra damage on hit. Azur's is more FP efficient and gives you cast speed which is *the* stat to have max in pvp for casters. PvE/Infinite FP cheese aside this staffs overrated in my opinion.

                      Suposse I equip Carian Regal Scepter on my right hand to cast any spell and Lusat on the left, Do I get the bonus from Lusat or just the increased cost? Also, Do I Need to fully upgrade the offhand staff? Finally, let's swap and put Lusat on the right hand to cast a Moon spell and Regal on the Left just for the bonus, in that case do I need to fully upgrade Regal Scepter for the offhand or It wouldn't make any difference?

                        The general consensus seems to be that it boosts int scaling by 10/11% rather straight buffing sorceries, if this is the case then why does the description give the distinct impression that it's a passive ability similar to other staves' passives? It seems like it would have made more sense to either state it gives increased scaling in the description, or not mention the damage increase at all as it's kinda misleading

                          In Demon's Souls, the Kris Knife and Morion Blade boosted magic attack if held in the off hand. Is there an equivalent staff in Elden Ring that boosts sorceries when held in off hand.

                          • Anonymous

                            Unlike the Meteorite Staff, you don't receive the damage boost when held in your offhand and casting with your main hand. You do however receive the added FP cost.

                              Anyone noticed that this staff says it also scales with strength, but putting putting points even up to 99 into strength doesn't raise the staff's stats by even 1 point? Is the strength scaling on the staff completely broken? is it a bug that it says it should have strength scaling? seems to me like only intelligence increases it's stats.

                                How exactly does this staff enhance spell damage? On my 52 INT character my +5 Lusat Staff (222 scaling) is doing 930 damage on the same enemies my +14 Acedemy Glintstone staff (223 scaling) is doing 937 damage on using the same spell. I don’t understand how its supposed to put out 11% more damage

                                  This staff is honestly not worth the increase in fp cost. As a pure caster, Carian Slicer is your bread and butter spell, yet you will kill in the same amount of hits as Carian Regal Scepter seemingly 95% of the time. The only time I could see this staff making a difference is when you are peppering your opponents with Swift Glintstone Shard, and in that case it MIGHT kill in one shot earlier.

                                    The thing people seem to forget is that the 1.1X bonus is in addition to the highest scaling in the game. For builds that can support the FP cost, there is no contest as this effectively has 450+ scaling at 80 int. I personally find the FP penalty to be manageable at 30 MND while using efficient spells (glintstone icecrag or glintstone pebble)

                                      I still think Rennala's staff is better. Without an extra FP expense it delivers insane damage. Use snow magic for exploring, as it is high damage and low FP cost: Glintstone Icecrag for regular sized enemies, Adula's Moonblade for enemies with large and multiple hitboxes (it completely deletes dragons); and if you want the extra damage, Terra Magica will ultimately save you FP, as it gives you a very decent damage boost for only 20 FP.

                                        The most powerful staff that scale with intelligence when +10, good for infinite fp + comet azur in ng. If you are in ng+ or Ng++ and have enough rune to level both intelligence and faith to 80, prince of death's staff will be more powerful.

                                          I saw so many people backseating and hyping this staff up, came to check and is the most unga bunga bait weapon I ever seen LUL

                                          • Ok so I need to ask, and this is in regard to the description of the staff itself, how does "boost to all sorceries" work exactly? Does it give an unbiased increased to all offensive sorceries available, or is it simply just a naturally higher scaling with said sorceries? I'd appreciate clarification on this as the description on this weapon has had me confused for a while.

                                            • It should be noted that the Prince of Death's staff has superior sorcery scaling as long as your faith is as high as your int, without the penalty to your FP consumption.

                                                Honestly unless you are casting extremely expensive spells this is a good choice to delete bosses but don't take it for exploration as it's going to bleed you dry quickly.

                                                    Off-hand this staff will only increases overall FP consume but will never increases your spell damage. not sure if it bugged or intended
                                                    so better main-hand it or else, use 'Prince of Death's Staff' once you can get to 80 int 80 faith at higher level for better sorcery scailing and lower FP consume.

                                                      I don't use it myself (not enough somber dragon stones in the game), but it has it's niche this isn't the exploration staff, this is the dunk on bosses staff. Chug the free fp and magic damage boost physic and dunk a heavy spell like comet azur on the boss for free with 11% extra damage which can stack with scorpion talisman, red feathered branch sword(or full hp attack talisman for safety), and graven talismans. Good for short pvp encounters too because for some reason alot of people don't want more than 40 vigor. I wish it provided a passive effect like mag dmg % up for the right hand stave though instead of just having the highest spell damage scaling. That way you can offhand it for a theoretically higher scaling staff in the right. I do this with Azurs to up my cast speed on queen's staff. Maybe it should be stronger, but do you really want all mages in pvp to one shot you with trivial spells??? Maybe just lower the fp penalty that's my 2 cents. It's fine as it is IMO, but things can change as more things get buffed and nerfed. Maybe a change will be justified later.

                                                        Honestly a worthy staff to pick.... However , you should consider this first. ( At 80 INT Lusat +10 goes for 413 Sorcery Scaling , which is 40 Scaling more than Carian Regal+10 which was 373 Sorcery Scale ). Now you might say 50% more FP increase yes... But if your High Leveled like i'm , having atleast 50 Mind for 280FP will result in Lusat's Staff +10 being soo much worthy than Carian for the increased 15% Damage between the 40 Sorc Scaling.... I could chain cast Stars of Ruin 5 times with Lusat's while with Carian it was 8 , obviously the faster i cast the better the damage that also includes my 60 Dex for Casting Speed. ( But specifically with Stars of Ruin the Lusat's +10 with 413 Sorc Scaling at 80 INT is better than Carian Regal +10 at 373... I pretty much 1 cast Stars of Ruin and kill all giant troll enemies , while with Carian i needed 2 Casts ). Thats a big difference , there's also the FP Potion that gives u infinite FP for 10sec which is worth it with Lusat ontop of that i combined it with the Magic Shroud that's 35% more Magic damage with Lusat , including Golden Vow i deal exactly 50% more Magic Damage with Lusat rather than Carian Regal at this specific build-up.... Lusat is definitely worth it when reaching 80 INT and atleast 45-50 Mind you wont even bother with the Extra FP i promise you as i'm level 276 now.

                                                        • The FP additional cost doesn't seem to work. I'm using the Meteorite Staff, which currently with 57 Intelligence has a Sorcery Scaling of 236 whilst my Lusat's Glintstone Staff + 5 has a Sorcery Scaling of 235. Great Glintstone Pebble costs 18 FP. When cast using Lusat's Glintstone Staff + 5, it still only consumes 18 FP. When attacking the same enemy, the Meteorite Staff does 2 more damage, with just 1 more Sorcery Scaling than Lusat's Glintstone Staff + 5.

Especially when the armor sets that go along with the staves also increase FP cost. I think someone said 73% together. With the helm and staff, Ruin of Stars has a 66 fp cost, up from 38.

                                                              Thats kind of absurd considering the increase in damage doesn't reflect that at all. If my spells are going to cost 50% more, then I'd expect that in damage in return.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      There are now quite a few comments asking if its bugged or people trying to test the special buff(me included). It should be noted on this page that the staff just currently has higher sorcery scaling than other staves at the same level. Plus the extra 50% FP cost. This has been tested.
                                                                                      Also the page with all the staves mentions it has a passive sorcery ability both in the "best staves" section as well as the table for all the staves. This is probably adding more confusion and should also be fixed. Just a suggestion.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        Haven't tested at 99/99 yet, but at 60/60 the prince of death staff deals more damage and doesn't take 50% more fp to cast spells, and it gives an extra boost to death spells. Likely the strongest staff at high levels.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          Base is 20 FP
                                                                                          With Lusat's GS staff, 30 FP, 50%
                                                                                          With either Lusat's or Azur's crown, 23 FP, 15%
                                                                                          With LGS staff and crown, 35 FP 75%

                                                                                          This means FP costs don't add but multiply.

                                                                                          1.15 x 1.5 = 1.725 x 20 = 34.5 rounded up is 35 FP.

                                                                                          I don't YT much, but I figure there's a certain debate on whether impulse DPS or efficiency is truly better, let alone whether Carian Regal Scepter is the true God with Comet Azur.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            Is this staff bugged..? When meteor staff and Lusat's staff are on the same sorc scaling, they do the exact same amount of damage, but Lusat increases FP cost :/ It's supposed to make all spells stronger too, right?

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              At 80 INT and +10 this staff has Sorcery Scaling of 413 which far exceeds any of the other available staves. My understanding is that the damage increase mentioned is just built into the higher scaling, and the higher FP cost is actually visible on the sorceries page when you equip them if you are holding the staff - for example Glintstone Pebble costs 11 FP when using this staff and it's listed when you equip it. At the stats mentioned above it surpasses all other staves I have including bonus damage staves - it does noticeably more damage with Rock Sling than the Meteor Staff once fully upgraded and capped INT (lvl 80.)

                                                                                              Pump enough points into mind for the high FP and this staff hits like a truck. 10/10 would smith it to +10 again - the best staff hands down for a glass cannon build.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                I just took a look at the game files as I could not find confirmation of if this staff is bugged or not.
                                                                                                Lusat's Glintstone Staff: Item ID 33240000 has a passive effect listed as ID 1934
                                                                                                When checking what effect 1934 is, it looks to be a self buff that increases the cost of Sorceries with a multiplier of 1.5 (Default being 1.0) so +50% cost in casts. And that is all the effect has listed. Generally for multi effects like this one of 3 scenarios happen.
                                                                                                1. All the effects are listed under the same SpEffect ID, this does not seem to be the case with this.
                                                                                                2. First effect is listed on that SpEffect and the subsequent effects are cycled by it. Essentially one effect chain activates the rest, this is not the case either since 1934 not have any other effect referenced to be being cycled with it.
                                                                                                3. Weapons and Armor have 3 passive effects they can have attributed to them directly. For this staff only one effect is listed, and that is 1934 as mentioned before.

                                                                                                My conclusion from looking at this would be that they accidentally missed adding the damage buff effect. I would consider that the description is busted, but it increasing costs by 50% without any other benefit sounds odd.

                                                                                                The other option I can think of is that its base scaling is so high that it accounts as an increase in damage. From my experience making mods for past games, I think this would be the easiest way to ensure you raise the damage of all spells which seems to be the goal of this staff. However, I am not personally sure how to assess the math on that so I will list the scaling as I see them and hopefully someone can make sense of them. Including their IDs in case someone wants to look into this as well.

What's confusing is that the Azur staff says in french that it reduces chaneling time of all sorceries ("Réduit le temps de canalisation de toutes les sorcelleries mais augmente leur coût en PC").

                                                                                                              Getting that last 14% effectiveness to equal out the FP cost when 10 INT alone didn't even get it but 7%?

                                                                                                              Someone commented 414 at +10 and 81... I don't think it's possible to outscale this reasonably compared to other staves. It seems like it's just an option to increase damage, to save time, for eventually a 10-15% loss in effective MP. Which most would take at the end of the game anyways if it saves time in comparison to other Staves. I'm not sure, though. This is all I have for now.

                                                                                                                  So I'm at 52 Int and I have this staff at +5 giving it 222 sorcery scaling. A comet does 1692 damage against a octopus. When I cast the same spell with my Meteor staff which has 223 sorcery scaling it does 1702 damage. This means it just has higher sorcery scaling compared to other staffs at the same upgrade level. Because if it's at the same sorcery scaling then it does the exact same damage but for more FP.
                                                                                                                  If you have a staff that has more/similar sorcery scaling then just use that one. I'm guessing this staff is worth it when you have it near fully upgraded.

                                                                                                                          Basically Lusta is about 10% more damage than regal scepter at 50% cost increase so risk vs reward is not that huge. You could reduce it down to the speed staff cost with that FP reducing bug helm and talisman but the helm comes at increase damage to self, that also locks you out of using any +int helm if you go the way.
                                                                                                                          Not sure how good the various "specialty" staves would be at max upgrade in comparison to which spells you use as a int build. Like faith there is death spells, magma spells, carion, digger, sword, crystal, moon and gravity. They require faith or arcane in certain directions like some of the faith incantations.

Staff is no longer consuming more FP per spell when compared to Carian Regal Scepter (casted Great glinstone shard to check). Anyone have any idea if this is intended or a bug?

                                                                                                                              Boosting your int with a helmet or talisman e.g. 65+5 to a total of 70 doesn't work and you still have the debuff.

The enhancement in power it mentions comes solely from having a high Sorc Scaling stat at high INT levels, not some separate, unique multiplier.

                                                                                                                                • Anonymous

Maybe that's accounting for the boosted sorc damage, but I doubt it. Kinda weird that the random stick found in a swamp that can't be upgraded is the best staff I've seen so far

If anyone has done ranni's or sellen's quest lines or obtained comet azur, im thinking one of these is the requirement to get the bonus.

                                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

Might be useful in PvP where a bit more extra damage matters, but might not be so good against bosses if you're not amazing at rolling as you will need to reduce red flasks charges because you'll be chugging blue flasks like crazy. Overall, it seems like the best general use staff for each category would be: Regal Scepter for FP efficiency, Azur for cast speed, and Lusat for burst DPS.

                                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

As I've upgraded it, I've tested when the scaling matched my Meteor staff (I had the exact same). However, damage was the exact same. So this description might just tell it has high scaling, which would clearly make the Azur's staff better for the extra speed.

                                                                                                                                            Honestly, I don't really feel like this is worth it personally. That said, it starts out as B-rank INT scaling and becomes S-rank INT scaling with a few upgrades, but even then that just makes it on par with the Meteorite Staff or Azur's Glintstone Stave. The latter also increases the FP cost of spells but increases casting time by a slight amount. Considering how spammy many of the mobs and bosses are, and how most have gap closers, and the potential PVP advantage of faster casting, I would probably put the Azur's Glintstone Stave above this one.

                                                                                                                                            For comparison, I used the Academy Glinstone Staff (+0) against Lusat's Glinstone Staff (+0) using Glintstone Pebble on some sheep. I repeated both several times and took the normal hit, because sometimes sorceries will hit lower than normal.

I currently have it at +9, and it has 327 scaling with 66 int. It gets S Int scaling at +3. I believe it overtook the Meteorite staff at +5 or 6, can't remember. It might be even with Azur's staff, but I prefer the damage increase over the casting speed.

                                                                                                                                                Also, it raises the FP costs by 50%. For example, Great Glintstone Shard is 12 FP with a normal staff, with Lusat's it costs 18 FP.
