Very nice staff! When and how'd you get it? Also, if I had a staff like that, I'd make sure to put a +4 energy mod on it instead of the hale. Reason for that is that this staff would be for casting only, and I'd reserve a weapon-set for high-defense [i.e.: rinblade + armor vs charr offhand, or rinblade/fire wand + bandit shield]. Just my game-play style. Enjoy that staff!
