Notes[]

  • Since this weapon has the unique capability to parry enemy melee attacks, it is able to synergize with any mutations related to parrying, such as Blind Faith Mutation IconBlind Faith and Spite Mutation IconSpite.
  • The best way to get critical hits with this weapon is to hold off on attacks most of the time, only swinging when you have parried an attack or are very desperate. Being patient is crucial for success, as getting too greedy can lead to the player missing the parry.
  • Take note that the Iron Staff can't block or deflect projectiles, or parry explosions.
