people prefer pyogo/dds over aeas because of speed. eg, in the video he was fighting griffey, those hits could be about 1.2x~1.3x faster

why do I hear all this talk about Staves for BMs
why not Wands?
is it because of range? wands would still be better seeing as they're a bit faster.
I wunder if EWs will be worth more now than ever, they're 'Fast' staves as well.

Kalemora: well elemental staffs might reduce ur dmg because BTLMs are "dark" element
noone has tested if they do, or do not yet since kms doesnt have ele staffs
@ above: all the BTLM skills correspond to staffs and cannot be used with wands (ex. they have Staff Booster, Staff Mastery etc.)

It's been tested in GMS that Elemental Weapons don't reduce Dark based damage.

Cause they can only use staffs. They're attacks and buffs don't work with wands.

Elemental staffs would be fine if youre reg luk, or have a lot of luk equips that can get you through. the level 163 ele staff is your best bet for damage.

Battle mages use staves not wands

BM's skills can only be performed by staves and EWs might rise in price a bit, although nowadays people tend to pass level 65 extremely fast.
I personally prefer staff anyway, they look and seem better fit for any type of mages . (explains why I still use a kage at 105, couldn't update basil)

It can be tested if haven't on GMS, you're forgetting Evan's also have the dark element.

I don't think ele staves should reduce the dark element. If you think about it, evan's use the fire ele weapons and they have several dark element based skills as well such as Dark Fog, Imprint, Killer Wings. It would have to impact those skills and thus impact the decision to using ele weapons. Though this would be inaccurate since evans mainly use fire based attacks to train and might not notice any difference in dark skills.

I was asking because he seemingly forgot that Elemental Staffs are Fast speed as well. Thanks anyhow, I guess.
Also, getting 105 Luck for a 103 Staff isn't that hard with potential and common equips like Zakum Helmets, etc.

Kalemora: Most people ive talked to capped at around 30~60. and yes, its easily obtainable for the 103 staff but kind of hard if youre low luk w/o funding or a lot of potential equips for luk to get the level 163 staff, also we just dont know if after BB the dark element will be effected by the elemental reduction.
