The Black Witch's Staff can be used to cast all hexes, miracles and sorceries. However, despite the fact that it deals Fire damage and scales with the player's Fire Bonus, it cannot be used to cast pyromancies.
One of the most versatile casting tools around; it is ideal for builds that regularly use sorceries, miracles and hexes together, as it removes the necessity of having a chime equipped. Furthermore, it can be reinforced with standard Titanite, making it very easy to fully upgrade.
It does suffer from poor stat scaling on Lightning damage, making it inferior to most sacred chimes in terms of using Lightning Spear or similar abilities. It also cannot be infused with Lightning, unlike chimes. This makes it excel with miracles that do not scale with lightning damage, such as Heal or Great Magic Barrier.
