Staff Mastery

Staff is a fast, dexterous style utilizing a long melee weapon.. Weapon Mastery, introduced in Game Update 36, allows player to perform cross-weapon combos.

Staff can combo into select One Handed and Rifle attacks.

To unlock Staff Mastery, players must spend 20 skill points in Staff tree. Depending on their needs, they should spend skill points on required Statistics for their Power role. Furthermore, they must unlock the next Staff Combos:

  • Martial Flowers
  • Focused Spin

Purchasing Staff Mastery causes required attacks combos to hit for increased damage. It will also increase critical strike damage and resistance to control effects while using Staff .

Weapon Mastery Tips

Unlocking as much weapon mastery as you can will grant you access to the Weapon Mastery Points which require you to spend 21 skill points in that weapon tree.

We suggest you to focus on your Main Weapon tree (Staff) and both Cross-Weapons’s tree (One Handed & Rifle).

Cross-Weapon Combos

Using a super power at the moment Cross-Weapon Combos impact will increase the super power’s chance to crit by 360% and its critical damage significantly.

On healer, tank, and control role, using a super power at the moment Cross-Weapon Combos impact will decrease the super power’s Power cost.

      Hello FRNT, staff is a great tanking weapon because it hits multiple enemies with their combos 🙂

      Hello Justadvice, your skill points should always be higher than your Combat rating. Staff: Mortar Mastery will be great for healing because it increases hit counter fast which help regenerate power faster

    Did you know that your weapon mastery combos for the staff were off? For the one handed you show flurry and air launch and the rifle you show full auto and slip shot. The moves for one handed are cleave and air launch and the rifle is flip burst and mortar. Sure it was just a mistake thought I would inform you of it. Awesome guides by the way.
