From the Profaned Capital bonfire, drop down to the lower part of the tower and exit through the hole on the wall. Continue past the Gargoyle and through the passageways into the toxic swamp. Head to the ladder on the side of the chapel, ascend and continue forward until reaching a hole that leads inside. Enter to find a Monstrosity of Sin and also the Mimic containing the staff behind the central pillar.
This staff is simply the most useful staff in Dark Souls 3 for dedicated mage builds that focus only on high levels of Intelligence.
It has the highest Spell Buff beyond 50 Intelligence, and is only slightly inferior in terms of damage when compared with the Sage's Crystal Staff if both are buffed with Steady Chant. But since the latter wastes more FP when casting this Skill, and only adds marginally more damage, the Court Sorcerer's Staff is simply the most well rounded high damaging staff.
Reinforced with regular Titanite.
- At 50+ Intelligence, this is the most powerful staff for consistent high damage without having to rely on Steady Chant. Compared to the Sage's Crystal Staff's Steady Chant, this staff only deals marginally less damage when its own is active. This, compared with the lesser overall FP consumption, makes it a more viable option.
- Reminiscent of Logan's Catalyst from Dark Souls.
- One of the two weapons wielded by the Court Sorcerer in the Profaned Capital, along with the Gargoyle Flame Hammer.
- If one looks properly from the right angle, they will find that the bottom part of the staff that is beneath the hand grip is slightly lower than the rest of the staff.
