Staves need meaningful melee

Right now staves do a fairly meaningless but high stagger smack… Let’s change that to be something meaningful

I’d like to see staves do either an element themed melee or a ground slam type of move that doesn’t cost much peril

Here are my suggestions:

Surge should work like a shock baton, quickly shocking a mob and CC’ing it for 3 seconds

Purgatus should do a ground based AOE circle of fire that lasts on the ground for 5 seconds or just a wall of soulfire for area denial

Void should be a melee attack that is channeled that allows you to drain a targets life for a moment -before blasting them backwards upon release

Trauma should be a channeled larger circumference ground attack knocks surrounding mobs down like the veterans shout


I would settle for them just adding the secondary effect to the strike and maybe boosting it for concentrating the blast on one target…although it would be pretty cool to see a trauma staff blast directed sideways as directed cone AOE. Suggestions might be

Voidstrike: concentrated blast
Surge: Concentrated injected surge
Trauma: Cone AOE
Purge: Injected Soul Fire

The injected blasts could explode target with their particular element.

Please, this. Staves are often psyker’s melee weapon in lore, let us use it as one! This is a good suggestion.

Would be cool to see a melee stave as well
