Dazzling Staff

Overview

This skill is an offensive option for clerics, effectively granting them the effects of the Sweep skill family, but without many of the downsides. This skill allows a staff-user to adopt a secondary role as a chip damage dealer, as the foe will be unable to counterattack with damage of their own. This powerful ability is limited to wielders of staves.

Synergy

In combination with Candlelight, this skill can be very powerful, preventing the opponent from attacking at all. Gravity allows your team to reposition the healer away from the enemy team, chipping away at them as they struggle through impeded movement. Pain is another strong weapon option, as it at the very least, guarantees a minimum of 10 damage onto a foe. Fear and Slow are also two great weapon options for a Cleric running Dazzling Staff if you intend to run the healer as a debuffer. For C slot, Savage Blow and Breath of Life stand out as a choice picks. The choice will depend on the playstyle you wish to adopt with your cleric. A Breath of Life seal stacks healing with the skill, potentially turning your cleric into an Aoe healer with minimal investment.

Weaknesses

Being a B slot skill, Dazzling Staff unfortunately shares a skill slot with many of the skills it wants to run alongside. It cannot be paired with a B slot debuffing skill, and clerics cannot inherit Poison Strike. In addition, without Wrathful staff refinement, it is relatively underwhelming as a weapon since the healer will deal little damage. In the end, however, Wrathful and Dazzling staff are almost always run side-by-side, as each is lacking without the other.
