    In oblivion I loved staves, apothosis the most, but in skyrim I can't find many good staves.
    What is your favourite staff, even if with certain perks, even custom staves?

    Miraak's, Sanguine Rose and Staff of Magnus seem to be the only good ones IMO, the others kinda suck or just duplicate spell effects

    I love the staff of Revenants you find in that one unmarked barrow. A high (ish) level necromancy spell, that never destroys the body.

    It is between Eldershod Peak and Ustengrave approximately. It is one of little round hollow hills that is a tomb.

    The Wabbajack. Although luck-based,it has several insta-kill effects, which makes it a good weapon for emergencies. It's also useful against Dragons early on.

    A lot of fun can be had with a Staff of Flame Wall until you get Miraak's Staff, which as Ben and Ponty have said, is one of the best.

    I'm also a fan of the Staff of Jyrik Gauldurson. It has a poor charge reservoir but has a nice long range and a quick casting time.

    It's a Staff of Revenants, and it can be found SE of Morthal.  There's also an Illusion skill book in the barrow.  Here's a map.
