|Status||resolved||Product Branch||0.11 ancient branch|
|Summary||0005861: Elemental staves depend on Evocations, but don't allow training it|
|Description||The formulas for extra damage from elemental staves (chance of extra damage and amount of extra damage) depend on Evocations skill. However, having or wielding an elemental staff does not enable Evocations for training, the way a wand or other evocable item does.|

|Well elemental staves aren't "evokable". In the old system, you couldn't victory dance evocations with an elemental staff, so I kept it that way. Seems to be more consistent and it's hardly a significant limitation given the sheer number of items which allows training evocations.|
It seems both inconsistent and non-obvious to have to carry around a separate evocable item just to train Evocations for the staff. This did come up for me in a recent game: I had a staff of fire but could not train Evocations to use it effectively.
Either carrying an elemental staff should allow training Evocations, or using one effectively should depend on a different skill that the staff allows training of.
|The fact that they depend on evocations kind of implies that your character is evoking them automatically whilst hitting things. So I'd agree with josh and say they should allow training. Since it's trivial to just carry an extra evokable item I'd say there is no balance-breaking reason why we can't just let the staves themselves allow Evo training.|

Oddly, you can train evocations if your staff is unidentified.
Edit: I created a patch that checks if a staff uses evocations and enables training if so. I did not change un-ID'd staves allowing evo, and didn't put in any fancy checks for cursed status or swapability.
|Second patch (apply them consecutively) prevents unknown staves allowing you to train Evocations.|
|Was BlackSheep's patch ever implemented? Playing trunk yesterday and I found the Elemental Staff on D:3 yesterday and Evocations did not show up as trainable.|
Patches are in as a squashed commit: 0.14-a0-2341-gc799e94
Thanks a lot!
Next commit adds the Elemental Staff.
Sorry that this wasn't applied sooner. Poking people in ##crawl-dev on FreeNode might help in cases where patches seem to be forgotten about.
