Life Staff mastery guide

Being one of the three magical weapons within New World, the Life Staff has been classified by players as the support weapon among these three. This is due to the fact that the weapon excels in healing, and a large portion of its abilities are centered around healing other players during battle.

This isn’t to say the Life Staff cant pack a punch to other players, but your main focus while using this weapon should be in the healing department. We’re going to run over the perks you should spec into while applying points to your Life Staff mastery tree.


  • Divine Embrace
    • This is the must-have perk for the Life Staff, as it’ll “heal target for 150% weapon damage,” a significant amount, especially when you’re in battle against other players or a strong NPC
  • Sacred Ground
    • A stable AoE healing ability that’ll “create an area on the ground that lasts for 12s and heals 10% weapon damage every second.”
  • Orb Of Protection
    • Although this skill is not directly a part of the healing line for the Life Staff. It’s still fantastic as it’ll “shoot out a light projectile that grants 15% Fortify for 20s, heals an ally for 10% of weapon damage, and deals 95% weapon damage when it hits an enemy.”

Some other abilities you may want to opt-in for when selecting are.

  • Splash Of Light – “You and all group members are healed for 50% weapon damage.”
  • Lights Embrace – “Targeted heal for 75% weapon damage +30% more for each buff on that target.”
