The Lore-master's Staff Legacy Staff-strike Damage increases the damage of this skill by 15%.
Staff-strike is one of the few damaging skills that doesn't have an induction. The damage type it deals is dependent on the damage type of your staff. On a side note: fighting in melee range greatly increases the DPS of any player because of auto-attacks taking place. This is also advisable for Lore-masters, as long as the goal is to take the enemy down as soon as possible and the Lore-master doesn't take too much damage. Traiting Sword and Storm and Fend Them Off will stun the enemy (once in 60 seconds) and give you an avoidance and fire damage buff.
