This is one of a series of staves based on motifs from the Age of Myth, created by the greatest sorcerer of the day. It brims with his sorcerous power, and the stronger the wielder the stronger its destructive force.
While the sorcerer was blessed with extraordinary talent, it took years to manifest, leading to a long period of frustration and self-doubt. By bequeathing his power to future generations in the form of this staff, however, he's spared many aspiring young sorcerers the same anguish.
Zeus is said to strike foes down with thunderbolts. By linking the staff's power with the will of Zeus, the wielder can unleash deafening thunder and fearsome lightning.
