In-Game Description

The first staff of most sorcerers.
A catalyst for sorceries and hexes.
To use sorceries, attune a sorcery at a bonfire and equip a staff. The strength of most sorceries is affected by the caster's intelligence.


  • Starting equipment for the Sorcerer class.
  • Found in a chest along with an Amber Herb in the Forest of Fallen Giants. The chest is well hidden behind a false wall mechanism. After continuing past the gate that closes behind the player near Pate, the wall is at the base of the stairs near three Hollow Soldiers. Interaction with the wall by pressing A/✕ is required to reveal the chest.
  • An unlimited amount can be purchased from Carhillion of the Fold for 1,000 souls each, provided the player has at least 8 intelligence.
