Does more damage as you kill bosses throughout the game
Unleashes a defense-ignoring, rapidly damaging laser
Right click to fire three magical bolts

The Staff of David is a Legendary Weapon. It channels a large green laser similar to the Charged Blaster Cannon's fully charged attack. The laser can be freely aimed while channeled. It ignores enemy defense and damages them 30 times per second. Right clicking will fire three green projectiles that bounce off walls. This consume five times the mana and deal ten times the staff's base damage.

The best modifier is Demonic, as it cannot receive knockback boosts from Mythical.
