The Court Sorcerer's Staff is a staff in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Catalyst used by the court sorcerers of the Profaned Capital. Very powerful when wielded by an exceptionally intelligent sorcerer.
The court sorcerers laid claim to the legacy of the renowned Big Hat Logan, going so far as to emulate him with copies of the staff he used.
Skill: Steady Chant
Boost the strength of sorceries for a very short period. Works while equipped in either hand.


Dropped by a Mimic in the Profaned Capital, inside the second floor of the building within the Toxic swamp. It is guarded by a Monstrosity of Sin.


The Court Sorcerer's Staff is renowned as the most powerful Sorcery catalyst for builds with high Intelligence. This makes it the de-facto go-to catalyst for dedicated Sorcerer builds.

Below 25 Intelligence, the Court Sorcerer's Staff possesses rather poor scaling, and its Spell Buff is very unremarkable. However, once it exceeds this threshold its scaling will improve drastically, and it will steadily get stronger all the way up to 60 Intelligence. Unlike other staves, it will not slow down after 45 Intelligence, which is what allows it to surpass the competition.

In terms of raw Spell Buff, the Court Sorcerer's Staff will become the strongest staff at 50 Intelligence and beyond, claiming the top spot from the Sorcerer's Staff. However, care should be taken when using its Steady Chant skill, which costs more than twice as much as that of any other staff except the Sage's Crystal Staff.


Reinforced with regular Titanite.


  • If one looks properly from the right angle, they will find that the bottom part of the staff that is beneath the hand grip is slightly lower than the rest of the staff.
