Quarterstaff and Scorching Weapons / Inner Flame?


Rules Questions


The feats in question specifically call for metallic weapons, so my question is... Can I use a metallic quarterstaff? For context, this is for the purpose of Pathfinder Society.


Nope.

Items without metal parts cannot be made from adamantine. An arrow could be made of adamantine, but a quarterstaff could not.


A Lantern Staff is made of metal. The Adventurer's Armory 2 hasn't been added to the Additional Materials page yet, but I think there is a reasonably good chance that the Lantern Staff will be approved. It isn't a double weapon though.

It has been added actually. It's directly below the first Adventurer's Armory but they just messed up the title and it's just blank.

And yeah, the Lantern Staff is legal.


Lantern staff works, but annoyingly does not stack with the feats, so kind of not super useful.

Thanks. I was searching the page for the word Armory so it never showed up.

They should work so long as you don't light the lantern.


Why would you not light the lantern?

Edit: I mean, the main benefit is the fire damage it adds, and enough DM's will rule "My weapon is physically and naturally on fire" to be an "effect that adds fire damage" so it will not stack with inner flame / scorching weapon.

In this case the main advantage isn't one extra point of fire damage. The benefit is that it is metal and so can be used with Scorching Weapon + Inner Flame.


Yes. But sadly they do not stack. You can still light it though.


Thanks for all the help, everyone! Unfortunately, the idea was to have a flaming double weapon in my lack of access to the Flamesinger Bard Archetype at the moment (never saw the appropriate handbook in store, and I have nowhere to download the PDF to), so I guess I'll just hafta hold off on that for now.

Given my character is an Ifrit, the only other option I'm seeing is the Elemental Strike feat, but I don't think I'll be shelling out almost $50 just for one feat. Oh well.
