Staff of Cherished Necromancy is a very rare +2 Quarterstaff that greatly enhances Necromancy spells and can use a dead creature's essence to cast a Necromancy spell without costing a spell slot.

Description Icon.png

Unlike their father, Thibault, Cherish Hollow was not afraid of zombies. Cherish was afraid of sharks, liquorice, wallpaper, Netherese artifacts, hats (large), the outdoors, the indoors, hats (small), and milk pails. Zombies were a bloody picnic.

Where to find



  • Prior to Patch #6, harvested life essence wouldn't be consumed after casting a necromancy spell. This highly abusable bug allowed wielders to cast one free necromancy spell per action, up to spell level 6, after killing only one creature.
