Howdy, all!

I've finally managed to grind enough gold to afford an Exotic staff for my Elementalist, but I'm not a big fan of the look.  I have a few Fine Transmutation Stones left, though, so all I need now is a cool-looking staff of any degree of rarity and I'll be set.  Problem is, I'm not sure what kind of staff to look for.  Does anyone have any suggestions for a staff, preferably one with snazzy particle effects?

Ebon Vanguard staff looks cool in my opinion

The staff from AC is decent. It's ornate without being over the top, and it glows with blue ghostly flames / smoke at night.

I do really like the Ebon Vanguard staff a lot as well, though it has no particle effects, if that's what you are looking for.

Emberspire is pretty sweet too. It has a crystal flame at the ends that is animated with inner fire...good for an elementalist, especially if you're going for a pyromancer theme.

Unfortunately I think that, compared to a lot of melee weapons, the number of cool staff skins is lacking. There's only been one Mystic Forge crafted staff other than the Mystic Staff, and it's lackluster in my opinion.

Are the stats from "Mystic" items random or not? if not which stats has the staff?

The Whisper's Secret Staff! I have one on my guardian and I must say the head of the staff glows real bright. If you're wearing the Complete Mad Memories, then it'll give off the illusion of lighting the surrounding area! Apart from that the physcial design of the staff is awesome. You can get for 5 gold and 50 (a bit pricey, I know) something silver after you've become a lightbringer of the Order of the Whispers. If your character isn't a part of the order, you can transmute the staff to a white one using a fine transmutation stone and then transfer it via bank.

They have set stats and are exotic quality.

Corrupted Branch is a good light blue watery looking staff.
Emberspite? is a fiery looking staff.
The Pact staff is actually good looking.
Bramblethorne is a leavy earth kinda looking staff for Sylvaries.

Destroyer might be good looking fiery staff, not sure haven't seen it.

But for a skin (other then the Corrupted) there isn't one that makes you stand out like many GS are.
I haven't seen nor has anyone tested out Mystic Forge Staves like they did for GS

Yes, I don't know why GS has awesome skins from mystic forge and we have an OK melandru looking staff and mystic staff. Hopefully, cooler skins will be discovered/added to game.

Anyone know if there is a list somewhere of staffs with particle effects on them? Looking for one with any type of white or pink or just cool looking effect while out of combat.

Ooh, that's actually pretty cool. I'll have to check out some Dungeon stuff, but I'm tempted.

(Nobody knows how to find this staff PvE wise as of yet, but it is in the game, and one of the developers hinted that it is dropped off of a chest)

I'm using this model at the moment
http://www.gw2db.com...63-valley-staff

It's not something special, it looks rather very simple, but it glows with yellow light and some particles when in combat. It looks nice when it's dark, the glow is less visible in "daylight"

Good suggestions, all!  Amelia, that staff suits your character very well.

At the moment, I'm using this look: http://www.gw2db.com...-glyphic-staff#

My Ele has a mishmash of armors and has it all dyed bright white (Mithril Dye), so it looks fine on him now.  But I'm gonna take a look at a few of the other suggestions later tonight and see if I like those more!

Don't know about the 'warstaff', but the 'Jeweled staff' skin is Delusion. It's a level 80 exotic, you can get it on the TP for ~2.5 gold.

I have Delusion, its a fancy looking staff... resemble guildwar 1 jeweled staff.   I actually get it cheaper then 2.5 gold in TP.   I remember I offer 1.7gold and got the staff.   I find the stats +3 magic find isn't too useful.   (Should be +5 or more)

Delusion is my favorite staff. It doesn't have particle effect but the jewels shine and are very visible in the dark.
Stats on it arent very good though, unless you love magic find stuff. I trasmutated stats from a crafted exotic into mine.

Jeweled staff was also my favorite in GW1.

That looks very cool, almost like a warhammer Chaos staff.

You aren't going to like the answer unless you have a Hall of Heroes, but one of the best looking staffs for Elementalist and maybe in the game is the skin GW1 rewards.

The arah staff, quite cool. :cool: I love my Coe staff, and fit the color of my armor, but arah staff can be a good alternative.
