Spire of Lazarus

From Diablo Wiki

Spire of Lazarus is a normal Unique Staff with an item level of 24 and a Character Level requirement of 18.


Staves are very little used in Diablo II, since they make carrying a shield impossible. They do poor damage, and are not effective for dealing damage through any sort of quality armor. Their greatest attribute is their ability to carry bonus spell levels for the Sorceress, and she can turn them to use as a bashing weapon, but her Attack Rating will usually prevent her from making contact a sufficient percent of the time, and her damage will be low in any event. Still, a very good staff, or one of the excellent Unique staves, is not a bad choice for a Sorceress, if she can make up the resistance she'd usually have on a shield.

  • All staves are two-handed.
  • You cannot gamble for staves, they must be found.
  • All blunt weapons (including staves) have +50% Damage vs Undead.
  • In 1.10 of the Expansion the odds of gambling a Unique is 1 in 2000.
  • Normal Uniques are identical in Diablo II and the Expansion.


  • Item Level: Chests and monsters must be at least this level to drop the item. Ilvl is used in gambling, sales and other calculations as well.
  • Clvl Req: Your character must be this level or higher to equip the item. No Uniques had Clvl requirements prior to v1.07 D2.
  • Range: Goes from 1 (least) to 5 (most), and is identical for all melee weapon types. I.E. a 3 sword = a 3 spear = a 3 hammer.
  • Dmg Bonus: This determines how you multiply the item damage by your stats to reach the actual damage. Each point in this statistic multiplies your damage by bonus/100 %. For example a damage bonus of 70 is 70/100 or and additional .7% weapon damage per point. Most weapons have 100 str, which gives 100/100 or an additional 1% weapon damage per point in str.
  • Weapon Speed (WSM): A relative comparison to other weapons of the same type. 0 is the base -10, -20, etc is faster, 10, 20, etc is slower.
  • Swing Speed: The speed shown in-game for each character using this melee weapon. This speed is mostly meaningless and is included for completeness only. Characters are abbreviated to their first letters, with Amazon = Am and Assassin = As.
