    The only problem I see there is that if you are going with a Dex build, a quarterstaff isn't finessable, so your to-hit is going to be determined by your Str.

    If staff fighting is what you're looking for, you should seriously consider a Monk7/Rogue 13 Thief-Acrobat. Rogue's bonuses for staff fighting are ridiculous. There's a build on the forums for it, I believe it's the Big Stick build.

    I was looking into a staff build myself, but it looks like I'm not getting the +1 to hit that I get unarmed. I'm not getting the "not centered" debuff though...
    Is it just that the crummy starter staff has a hidden -1 attack?

    I do love my THF BigF'nStick build! Whack-O is so much fun to play. Just don't plan on soloing too much unless you have some twink skills, lotsa pots, uber abilities, etc. This build is best played when you have no aggro for all the Backstab damage. I modified the Phenx's build a little - most notably went with Subtle Backstab line and Combat Expertise. Also went with Great Cleave since Stunning Blow just wasn't landing enough for me and with the addition of glancing blows the additional cleave is nice.
