The Storyteller's Staff is a staff in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Staff of a heretic storyteller who shares tales of the Painted World to forlorn souls.
The storytellers, too, are wretched beings with no place to go. Their bodies, souls, and even their staves are all tainted through and through.
Skill: Poison Spores
Expel noxious spores from the formless, parasitical things that inhabit the staff.


Dropped by Corvian Storytellers.


It is a surpringly decent staff, but is outclassed by pretty much any other of the more popular staves, like the Sorcerer's Staff, Court Sorcerer's Staff, Heretic's Staff and Sage's Crystal Staff.

Most will not use it for its sorceries, but for its unique Skill which releases an incredibly powerful poison.

Leveling up the staff does not boost the damage of the Skill.


Reinforced with Titanite.


  • The poison it makes functions differently in that it deals out constant damage that corresponds to the health of the target. With this, it will do negligible damage to enemies with negligible health, while doing massive damage to bosses and tougher targets.
    • This can allow one easier success on the fights taking place in the Ashes of Ariandel DLC, allowing one to attack when they can and let the damage work in tandem.


  • Appears to be growing fungus, some of which is a parasitical growth that generates spores with the use of the skill.
  • Though it uses the Steady Chant animation it is instead being used for the Poison Spores Skill that releases the poison gas.
