Default What is the Point of wearing a Staff?

So, i noticed something while i switched a few eqs and went for a Shield (without weapon) cos i was in need of a bit more Def.

I noticed that my damage didnt decrease at all, while i was wearing NO weapon, compared to before.
Is that intended? I don't really see the point of upgrading my Gumiho staff anymore then, especially since the more important stats (Magic AC and the Activation effects) arent affected by the upgrading.

Why should i wear a Staff at lower levels? I dont plan to enchant my Staff (i dont want to break it again) further.
Isnt it just better to get a Privaring Dagger and a shield? Instead of wearing a Staff which doesnt do Jackshit compared to the Privaring Dagger. >_>

Proof screens for people who arent believing D:

Without Weapon (only a Bat Heart +3 without any stats)

With my Gumiho Staff +2 and Min Magic +5%
http://i36.tinypic.com/idhq0y.png

I really expected more. >_> And yeah, i know the damage is random, but i tested a few times and it was always around the same (highest without weapon was 72X, with 74X) damage.

the problem is how ogp introduced puzzles, if we were having it like jlt we would enchant much more, and aim for a "godly" staff that raises magic a lot, which is not attainable with dagger+shield

no, no... KouNeeSama, what is the point to enchant at max +15% on your staff with max enchant of lvl 5 at lvl 4X eqs?

It doesnt really matter, enchanting here IS a joke. Like Jono already said, 5% is lol. Tho, im not asking about that. I know that 5% min damage increase is not much at 1K damage. My point is: Why dont go the "Min/Max Power" thingys on the Staffs into the Damage formula?

I always thought thats like... treated in another Way, like "MA" on Trickster (or any other game which has Magical Weapons which increase Magic Power).
Thats why i asked if it wouldnt be better to just use the Privaring dagger at lower Levels, because that Dagger increases Magic damages in many ways, compared to the Gumiho Staff, that thing is Godly and much more worth to get than any other Staff.

I got myself now the Javawalk dagger instead of the Flower Staff, because i dont see the Flower staff as worthy as that one. Guess i will Switch to Shield/Dagger when i hit lvl 72. >_>

Gumiho activation does increase with upgrading btw. My +5gumi now heals me 130~160.

Staffs are really only for enchanting min/max/accuracy. If you can do without that stuff, then use a dagger/shield.
