The Eltex Staff is a DLC melee weapon that benefits those using it who can use Psycasts by enabling them to use their powers more frequently.

Acquisition

Eltex staffs can be purchased from any combat supplier or war merchant or obtained as a quest reward, once you have the Royalty DLC active. You cannot craft this item.

Analysis

A normal quality eltex staff improves a pawns Psychic Sensitivity by 42%, and improves the neural heat recovery rate by 2.5 per 30 seconds. This sensitivity buff scales with quality making for a powerful buff to a psycaster's abilities especially at higher qualities. However its potential as a weapon is limited with the second lowest DPS of any melee weapon, just barely better than Beer. The eltex staff cannot be equipped by a pawn incapable of violence.

As the eltex staff makes a rather poor melee weapon, and with a full psycaster set (eltex robe, eltex shirt, eltex vest, eltex helmet) your pawn will have little armor, it's a good idea to keep them in the back as a "support" pawn.

An eltex staff improves a pawn's base neural heat recovery rate by 0.083 heat per second, though this will be modified by their psylink level, and increases their Psychic Sensitivity by an amount dependent on the quality.
