The Lore-master's Staff Legacy Staff Strike Cooldown reduces the cooldown of this skill by up to 5s.
Staff-strike is one of the more powerful skills of the Lore-master in terms of DPS, if they are fighting in melee range. It 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. If maximum DPS is the goal, Staff-strike should be used each time it is off cooldown.
