The Spellsparkler - most prominent Act 1 staff
Act 1, does not offer many weapons for casters. However, one can be easily obtained without any fighting. This stuff is perfect for casters that rely on multiple hits - Fireball, Scorching Ray, Eldritch Blast, etc. Each hit generates a Lightning Charge. Each charge adds a bonus of 1 lightning damage.
The staff is so good that it can be used late in the game until you obtain something like Markoheshkir.
