The Bat Staff is a staff in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Staff used by hollowed Drangleic sorcerers. A catalyst for sorceries and hexes.
The bat affixed to its tip is a simple charm. It has no bearing on the staffs powers, but the germs on the cadaver poison foes upon contact in strike attacks.

## AvailabilityEdit

Dropped by the Hollow Mages in Brightstone Cove Tseldora.

## CharacteristicsEdit

Prior to patch 1.06, the Bat Staff could inflict extra poison build-up on an enemy when casting Dark Fog, in addition to when striking enemies with the staff. However, after patch 1.06, the Bat Staff only inflicts poison build-up when attacking an opponent directly.

In terms of casting ability, the Bat Staff is superior to the Sorcerer's Staff in terms of both spell bonuses and durability; however, it has slightly less casting speed and requires more Intelligence to use. If the player is a hex user, however, the Bat Staff is quickly outclassed by the Archdrake Staff, which can be purchased from Felkin the Outcast earlier than when a Necromancer may drop the Bat Staff (so long as the player has an effective Faith value of 8).
