Abit out of topic, talking about LD, its a lot damage but this spell along can not make kills, not like wiz spells. Wearing staff to against melees should be high risk high reward, current LD staff hit not enough to do that, plus its most likely you got ex down first before you LD hit, thats why CA waiting with dagger/shield still the best way to deal with melees.
I totally agree with its need to be something that WORTH for the priests to switch from 34 white AC shield to Staff.
Note that the priest can equip one G8-10 dagger/pike (I pretty sure most priests are using at least G9 rares on their dagger/pike nowadays) with 34 white AC shield together.
Personally, I believe I mentioned few time LD isnt too OP in MASSIVE PK, consider its can only aim 1 person and its cannot make kills, not like BL, FB and ex. Also, as the life rare is buffed, and most Meta Dual class (such as WarSaint and GrandWizard also has Life effect on that symbol)
The Priest who sacrificed their defensive power and wanted to play aggressive, but they still can't really kill a d5 WarSaint without any life rare or D5 GW with G8 life rare on (with 49k LD (From a D5 Priest) + 1 staff (200+ TT) )
Not to mention the Luck spell didn't provide 100% hit acc. anymore.
Noted that using Staff in current setting is highly risky especially when the priest stunned and be attacked from ex fire/BL.
BR will be a better choice comparing to NV/Force in priest Staff with d3 spell rework, however, People still won't use the staff as they can equip G9+ BR dagger/pike TOGETHER with 34 White AC Shield.
The extra effect from the LG sound attractive, but ONLY D3 LG SET will provide G8 bonus effect, and D3 LG set with all matched effect in the correct pieces are very difficult to collect for most casual players including myself.
White AC on Staff, immune to curse skills(pepsi, fleet etc) or have an effect on LD sound good, and for me, those will be WORTH for the priest to take off their shield and use the staff in MASSIVE PVP.
(Its make more sense for LD to deal the damage which scale with Orison Level as well apart from CON (HP) only)
PS: I voted YES as I agree white MV on wiz staff!
