Found in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.
From Central Irithyll, make way past the plaza with the fountain. To the left of the second Fire Witch there will be a small terrace with a Crystal Lizard. The banister on the right is illusory and will reveal a staircase once hit. Head down the stairs past a Pontiff Knight and toward a cell with a deranged Evangelist named Dorhys inside. The staff lies next to a tree on the right.
The main selling point of this staff is that it has maxed out casting speed making it unnecessary to use the Sage Ring and thus allowing for other rings to used.
As such, it should be used as a staff for casting buffs, defensive spells or evasive spells only.
For instance, it can be useful for when players cross the staircase filled with Undead Soldiers and Lothric Knights leading to Lorian and Lothric's arena. One could equip this staff and constantly cast Hidden Body and Spook, while running up the stairs to completely bypass the area.
Reinforced with regular Titanite.
- This staff makes a return from Dark Souls 2 with the same characteristics of having a high casting speed (Witchtree Branch).
