Non-Raid Transmog Weapons: Staves

There's nothing quite as feeble as a caster smacking something with their staff. These things are for looks, not for hitting people! Anyway, there are very nice non-raid staves out there. Some simple, some ornate. Take your pick!

Casters, remember that you can use Agi staves, finally! And vice-versa for Feral Druids and Hunters.

Once again, Morgion is wearing a plain white dress so the staff models wouldn't blend in with her dark leg armor.

Non-Raid Staves

Ameer's Judgement
Required Level: 68
Source: Quest

Not every staff has to be huge and clunky. This small cane would be nice for a Frost or Arcane Mage. There are numerous recolors available.
Angerstaff
Required Level: 57
Source: Bind on Equip

Common model, but visually quite nice. Check AH. Clones include Seer's Cane (requires Exalted with Scryers, 56g base price) and Frenzied Staff (BoE green). Staff of Athen'a (Dire Maul) is a turqoise recolor, and Blood Elf Priests can get Staff of the Sunchaser (Quest).
Blood Boil Lancet
Required Level: 80
Source: Forge of Souls

Very wicked-looking staff. 24% drop rate. Shares a model with a raid drop, and Staff of Draconic Combat from Heroic Oculus.
Bloodfire Greatstaff
Required Level: 70
Source: Black Morass (Normal/Heroic)

This great looking staff is a unique model, has that cool glowy-ember look, and is nice and hefty. Has a 15% drop rate on both Normal and Heroic.
Chelley's Staff of Dark Mending
Required Level: 85
Source: Bind on Equip

This dark metallic staff has a unique look, and can sometimes be found on the AH. It's not that great now, but it's still quite good for someone newly dinged 85, so expect to pay 5-10k for it.
Conifer Cone Staff
Required Level: 68
Source: Bind on Equip

The famous "pinecone" staff is very distinctive, that's for sure. It's a random green drop, so check AH. The only other available staff with this model is a raid drop out of Blackwing Lair.
Crystalfire Staff
Required Level: 60
Source: Hellfire Ramparts

Nice mix of crystalline pink and metallic purple. 15% drop rate. Shares a model with Staff of Sorcerer-Thane Thaurissan (Archaeology) and Battle Mage's Baton (Quest reward).
Draenic Wildstaff
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Auchenai Crypts

Simple but appropriate look for Restoration Druids or Shamans. 17% drop rate. Shares a model with some Druid-only low-level staves, which are quest rewards from a level 20 Druid quest in Shadowfang Keep. (Horde, Alliance)
Dreamer's Dragonstaff
Required Level: 70
Source: The Botanica (Normal / Heroic)

What even is it on the end of this staff? A plant? A claw? Who knows. Kinda cool looking though. 18% drop rate on both Normal and Heroic. A few recolors - Swarming Sting-Staff (Pink, Bind on Equip), and Wild Wood Staff (Light icy blue, Quest reward).
Staff of Earned Tranquility
Required Level: 5
Source: Quest (Worgen only)

This staff is only available to new Worgen characters, but I had to list it. It's an incredible model, as rose petals constantly drift slowly from the roses. Shares a model with the Alliance-only Chillwind Staff (Alliance Quest), though the Chillwind Staff has darker flowers.
Engraved Gargoyle Femur
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Pit of Saron

Nice elegant look, very magical looking with the runes and floating bits. 29% drop rate. Only other item that shares the model is a raid drop.
Epoch-Mender
Required Level: 68
Source: Black Morass (Normal/Heroic)

Rich purple, unique model. Has a faint blueish glow at the end which persists after transmogging, overwriting your weapon's actual enchant. 17% drop rate on both Normal and Heroic.
Feral Staff of Lashing
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Botanica

This animated...plant/parasite-looking thing makes for a great nature or otherworldly look. 14% drop rate.
Greatstaff of the Leviathan
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Underbog

This...plant/insect/pseudopod thing has an animated tongue that slowly wiggles back and forth. Quite an interesting model. 17% drop rate.
Staff of Feral Furies
Required Level: 80
Source: Vendors (Various)

This large staff is Horde-only, and is a unique model. It is purchasable from the Argent Tournament vendors for 25 Champion's Seals.
Silvery Sylvan Stave
Required Level: 80
Source: Vendors (Various)

This large staff is Alliance-only, and is a unique model. It is purchasable from the Argent Tournament vendors for 25 Champion's Seals.
Fleshling Simulation Staff
Required Level: 68
Source: Quest

Classic look for bear druids! Quest reward from Netherstorm.
Ursol's Claw
Required Level: 60
Source: Hellfire Ramparts

Classic look for bear druids! 19% drop rate from last boss in Hellfire Ramparts.
Wildcaller
Required Level: 68
Source: Quest (Horde, Alliance)

Classic look for bear druids! Quest reward, obtainable by either faction. Has a twin, Braxxis' Staff of Slumber, a Bind-on-Equip drop.
Staff of the Forest Lord
Required Level: 70
Source: Vendor

Despite the name, this staff seems more at home in the gold and red streets of Silvermoon than a forest. Perfect for Blood Elves! Costs 780 Justice Points.
Frostscythe of Lord Ahune
Required Level: 85
Source: Lord Ahune

A special drop from the Midsummer Fire Festival boss, this scythe looks amazing. Unlike almost all other transmog items, this staff's natural "frosty" visual aura overrides your weapon's actual enchantment. Even if your weapon has Power Torrent, it will still look icy!
Grand Scepter of the Nexus-Kings
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Mana-Tombs

This vibrant crystalline green staff has a very cool, magic feel, and is a unique model. 14% drop rate.
Headmaster's Charge
Required Level: 40
Source: Scholomance

Very distinctive design, perfect for a Warlock. A ridiculously low 2% drop rate. However, it shares a model with The Bringer of Death (Bind on Equip), and the heirloom staff, Dignified Headmaster's Charge, purchasable for 3500 JP, 160 Darkmoon Prize Tickets or 95 Champion's Seals.
Ironstaff of Regeneration
Required Level: 65
Source: Auchenai Crypts

The silver and gold on this simple, elegant staff goes well with many outfits. 15% drop rate. Shares a model with Rod of the Ogre Magi (Dire Maul, 2% drop rate) and Severin's Cane (Quest Reward). Other reskins exist, but only share the basic shape, lacking the fine detail on the head.
Medusoid Staff
Required Level: 80
Source: Quest Reward

This AWESOME staff is fully animated, and its tentacles writhe and wiggle. Terribly fun. Unfortunately, if you've already done this quest you are almost out of luck, as the only other staff that uses this model is Terestian's Stranglestaff, a raid drop from Karazhan.
Tower of the Mouldering Corpse
Required Level: 80
Source: Forge of Souls

This sharp-looking staff screams magic - the blade-like head actually levitates off the tip of the shaft, which looks very cool. Completely unique model. 23% drop rate.
Staff of Beasts
Required Level: 65
Source: Quest Reward

Huge, distinctive, awesome staff. Just look at it! Unique model, as the only other staff that looked the same is no longer available.
Staff of the Redeemer
Required Level: 68
Source: Quest Reward

This massive crystal staff looks almost like a polearm or axe. Purple and pink, giant crystal - obviously perfect for a Draenei character. Shares a model with the Exodar Life-Staff (Bind on Equip, drops from Doom Lord Kazzak).
Rod of the Blazing Light
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Magister's Terrace

Very nice color contrast, perfect for a Blood Elf caster. 25% drop rate. An all-white version exists, Staff of Divine Infusion (Bind on Equip), and the Warpstaff of Arcanum, below.
Warpstaff of Arcanum
Required Level: 70
Source: Botanica (Normal/Heroic)

Nice purple/gold color scheme, very royal looking. 12% drop rate on Normal, 13% on Heroic.
Serpentcrest Life-Staff
Required Level: 68
Source: Steamvault (Normal/Heroic)

This strange, aquatic-looking staff looks a little like a Faceless One mixed with Neptulon. Pretty strange model, and it's unique, too. 19% drop rate on Normal, 20% on Heroic.
Staff of Sinister Claws
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Old Kingdom

Scaly, spikey, and mottled, this staff is quite ominous and disturbing-looking. Only non-raid staff to sport this particular appearance. 23% drop rate.
Sun-Infused Focus Staff
Required Level: 70
Source: Magister's Terrace

Simple but attractive, this golden staff has a 16% drop rate. Identical to Staff of the Sun (Horde-only Quest Reward). Recolors include Decalcified Elven Spear (Blue, Quest Reward) and Vengeance Staff (Green, Bind on Equip).
Terokk's Shadowstaff
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Sethekk Halls

This enormous, striking staff has a completely unique appearance. 14% drop rate.
Staff of Trickery
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Violet Hold

This wooden staff is a very detailed likeness of a dragon's head. Completely unique appearance. 23% drop rate from final boss in Heroic Violet Hold.
Unspeakable Secret
Required Level: 80
Source: Pit of Saron

Spiked and sporting a dizzying color scheme, this staff shares model only with a drop from 25-man Nazzramas. 26% drop rate from Garfrost in Normal Pit of Saron.

    Hey one staff I really like that's not included here is Soulkeeper. It has a couple other similar models, and the head on the end spins, which gives it a cool effect. Love the guides!

    Cheers,
