So, I see a lot of people not using the bolt staff and at first i thought that their was an actual reason for this as i didnt really use i too. But now that ive leveled up my pyromancer a bit, I see no other reason to not use the bolt staff, This thing is insane, I used to see the beam staff quite a bit but once again, the bolt staff does everything better in my opinion, Not only this, it also does better than the conflagration staff.
So, you might be wondering why you should use this weapon, well it’s because it does everything, Crowd control, Horde killer, Damage for armoured. It can one hit stormvermins at a full charge.
So, just if your wondering, once i started using this staff, i began to get like 600 kills a game, 10k average damage and around 2k boss damage.
The bolt staff is just insane but i should warn you, It seems to be at it’s best with a pyromancer and the critcal hit reduces Overcharge, Because this thing get’s crazy crits, whether your just firing with the left click which you most of the time will never need to overheat if hitting your shots and the right click attack just pierces to so much enemies that after one crit with it, You will be near to no charge. If you do however almost overheat, Just use your F when if you have the level 25 talent.
ALSO, I just did some testing, and i was only able to fire the beam staff without overheating for a atleast 40 seconds and it went to overheat, And when i was testing with the bolt staff, I was able to fire past 1 minute, still in the grey and the start of the middle bar and rarely got past that, This was a test dummy though so.
