I'm confused about the skill "Staff Mastery" in Torchlight 2. I'm pretty sure I'm right, but let me just get this straight:

If I use Shockbolts, (in addition to the other skills),

  • Does lower the target's resistances?
  • Does it also lower them if I hit the target with my staff?


  • Am I required to wield a staff for this to have effect?

If you have the skill Staff Mastery, you can lower the elemental armor of any enemy by hitting them with:

  • Your staff
  • Magma Spear
  • Magma Mace
  • Icy Blast
  • Shockbolts

The passive skill Staff Mastery ONLY works when you have a staff equipped. This is a cumulative effect and I believe does not go below 100% reduction.
