Staff of Cairn is an artifact in Tyranny.

Background[edit | edit source]

This staff resembles the arcane tools wielded by Earthshakers. What separates it from its peers is a fragment of the Archon of Stone fused with Azurelith gathered in the Stone Sea. As an expression of Cairn's magic incorporating his body as a component, it is safe to regard the Staff of Cairn as possessing the raw potential of an Earthshaker apprentice in a dormant state.

Though Cairn is remembered for his unpredictability and uprising against Kyros, the powers of this staff have achieved a dormant, controlled state. The gem at the head occasionally flickers with violent awareness, but goes still with time.

Notes[edit | edit source]

For staffs created in game (as opposed to imported through New Game+), the stat bonus increases with reputation, up to +7 for Wits and +6 for Quickness (haven't tried the others).
