Lightning Staves are a type of Two-Handed Weapon in Elder Scrolls Online. They share the same Attack Speed as Ice Staves, Inferno Staves and Restoration Staves. Besides dealing Shock Damage, this changes many of the skills in the Destruction Staff Skill Line. To see the exact effects please see the Destruction Staff Skills page.

Lightning Staves can be crafted, drop from bosses, be found in chests, acquired from vendors or Guild Merchants, be acquired from PvP Reward Bags or PvP vendors or be awarded in Pledge Chests. The tables below reflect the values for all craftable Lightning Staves in the game. For information on other Weapons, please see the Sets page. Please note that crafted Weapons (and Armor) have a slightly higher Damage (or Armor) value than others in Elder Scrolls Online. The values are roughly 2 levels higher than their counterparts. The Lightning Staves below can also be crafted as part of a Set. To see which sets, and where these can be crafted, please see the Set Bonus Crafting Locations page.

      Heavy Attack cannot be reflected. Can begin channeling Heavy Attack, and maintain while moving, even when LoS ( line of sight ) would logically be an issue. Distance, however, must be maintained, or the channeling will cease, the moment a target is out of range. The " Cleave " damage gained via destruction staff talents, makes this the DK Heavy Attack build weapon of choice, in group PvP and most PvE. While the other 2 choices have higher single target DPS and CC capability Vs. Melee, you will never be reflected on a heavy attack, and gain the ability to use LoS abuse tactics.
