The Staff of Striking (Staff of Striking +3 in-game) is a staff with 25 charges when fully charged, and will destroy itself when there are no charges left. As with all items with a fixed number of charges, it is possible to recharge this weapon. Simply sell it to a store and then buy it back.

If you look at the statistics of the weapon, it has almost the same as a Quarterstaff +3, but has a damage bonus of +9, which is six points higher. This item appears in Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition.

In Baldur's Gate, it is the most powerful staff and probably the strongest blunt weapon available. This weapon is found at the fourth underground floor of Durlag's Tower, more exactly in the chest in area AR0514 coordinates (4284, 2194). It's also in a different proficiency compared to other games.


Staffs of Striking are made by the Gold Elves of Drelagara on Evermeet. The staffs have a life of their own and jump to attack in their bearer's hand. The elven craftsmen rarely sell them to other races but these powerful melee weapons do surface occanionally in Faerun. However, each attack ade with the staff uses a charge, hence causing it to consume itself when no charges remain.
