I have always loved the black staff; two handed weapon, with whirlwind and 2.75s endogenous swing and damn sharp looking. Who could ask for more? So, though it may cost a fortune, perhaps my stash of black staves, which has been accruing for nearly ten years, can finally be put to good use with a little help from imbuing. I know I have several old black staves that have no mods. I probably have a couple that have mods that would be conducive to several template schemes. For a sampire with adequate HLD and DCI I think I would order up: SSI DI HSL HML HLA I would be interested in seeing what Black Staff recipe others would find ideal for specific templates and situations.
