Staff of Crones is one of the Simple Two-Handed Melee Weapons in Baldur's Gate 3. In BG3, each type of weapon has different ranges, damages, and other features (Finesse, Versatile, Dippable, etc). Characters need to master certain Proficiency before using a weapon, and sometimes gain a special Actions while holding it.
Live worms wriggle beneath the crumbling surface of this half-rotten staff. Merely touching it fills you with a wave of unbearable nausea and a strange longing, as if it's calling for its like.

Poisoner's Robe + Ring of Poison Resistance. Should essentially make this staff a really good damage dealing cantrip for a wizard or warlock once all their spells are used.
2d8 + 1d4 (From robes of poisoner) = 3-20 posion damage + the enemy is poisoned if they fail the saving throw (Which impacts their chance to hit you which is a good debuff).
You should only take 1d4 damage poison with the Ring of Poison Resistance.
But the item seems to be bugged and not apply the effects properly.

It seems that the caster also takes poison damage when the ability of the staff is used
