(1/5) Pestilence. (Definitely worth adding 1 skill. This seems to net the most reps. Lvl 35 stumps was gettin 70 reps trying to Master the Staff)
(1/5) Wither. (Yes it looks cool, but the more skill dots you add, the stronger the reps and the harder it is to level later.)
(1/5) Flaming Skull. (Very effective, but same as Wither....)
(0/5) Banish. (only skill up to use on Stumps for max reps. Long charge time)
(1/5) Desolation. (gotta do it for the fun factor or to Awe the noobs on PR )

Heres the ones that I would MAX!!!
--Passive Effects--
(5/5) Concentration. * [+50% Voodoo Recovery Rate]
(5/5) Spirit Lore. * [+25% Casting Speed for Staff]
(5/5) Conservation. * [-?% Casting Cost for Staff/Doll Hexes] (I can Wither all day and not drain voodoo enough to lose it)
(4/5) Spirit Mastery. * [+25% Dmg to Doll/Staff Spells] If you dont use Desolation, then use this max. Why skill up individual attacks when this works on EVERYTHING VOODOO. Only do it after Mastered, cause it makes it hard lol.
(26/26) Total
To each his or her own. We all have our different styles of play, and I prefer to use my Staff as an offensive weapon, not just as a levelling tool.

I haven't mastered it yet, but use my 4* Wither and 4* Flaming Skull all the time, keeping a 1* Soul Flay for when I want to grind out rep. (I have not taken Pestilence, Banish or Desolation either.)

Also, although the Passive Skills here are great, I'm not sure I need to max any of them except Spirit Mastery. And I'm still debating whether to get Conservation at all. I find I never run out of voodoo as it is, so the small reduction it gives (4% per *) does not seem worth it to me. Also, since you use up the same amount of voodoo whether you're throwing a 1* or 5* Wither, having more punch to the hex ends up "saving" voodoo in the long run.

I figured I should "go low" to start, but your reasoning for putting so many skill points in the passives seems to make sense.

And there's the rub. It's just going to be hard not dumping all the points in Whither and Flaming Skull and killing things nearly instantly. I'm already finding leveling to be so boring that after a few more levels I may just give up and finish the Black Pearl Quest and wait for Disney to add new challenges to the game.

Kings head is good, and for leveling yeah, it doesn't really matter how you choose to put points in your skills in regards to leveling up provided you have a weak skill to use.

I find If i don't get enough rep, I usually throw a few(10-15) lower level spells out for a while to get more rep from it.

I went to Kings to level up my staff. At first I used the grenade combo, I would get behind the fence (seven posts to from the start..see the post on grenade leveling) and then toss a stink bomb at the group of vets. They would run over and I would blast them with pestilence until they died.

I leveled up five levels within 30 minutes, then I put an extra point in wither, one in concentration and one in spirit lore. After that I just went out and stood in the middle of the vets and used wither. They don't attack if you don't move, so hold still and when your voodoo and heath is at max, zap them. It takes about four times to get rid of all of them with two points in wither.

From doing those two things now I'm at level 12 and use wither mostly, conservation point seems to help a little. I'm going to take everyone's advice about desolation, seems like no one liked it.

Well, I'd say use 2 Flaming skulls on the Vets at the vet fields first then 2 withers when they get close! that'll get u easier rep as they take time running to u after using Flaming skull on them and gets you plunder!

Wink Best uses for the staff and doll

Ever had fun pvping with friends and pretending to blast them or use heal and cure to act like weapons?
Well now im here to talk about all of those ways to use the staff and you type at the bottom of the post reply box your favorite way to use voodoo.

First: You get to go around tormenta using your staffs or dolls and showing off by blowing up urchinfists lvl 36+
second: Have you ever been in a fight with another player(s) and it wasnt in a PVP? Well if its not a pvp then you get to show off!!!! plus the good thing is you dont hurt them. and if they are really tough like you (staff ppl) they might ask you to be friends.

Third: You take out your pirate doll and you wonder "how many people know how much i can attune to?" Go ahead and show off by attuning them and using heal or cure while attuning to all of them


If you think there is a BETTER way please let me know!!!

Probably the most popular place is the formation of vets on the field at kingshead.

With wither you can blast them all at once..
Careful.. have tonics and/or a healer.

Got my staff just a bit ago: it's gotta be the fastest leveling weapon ever (like the nades, upon hitting 4, WHAM! you're off). The kind folks at Kingshead are, as far as I know, green to at least 18 if you don't pass noto 31.
