60 on Spell Buff is Wrong, i play with this staff on the German Version and IG Descriptiion says 110 Spell Buff at Lvl 0 and also my test shown that this Staff deals more DMG than the Sorcerer Start Staff at lvl 1 also his Spell Buff is increased by Upgrade the Staff with titanite.

This is the correct staff to use until you can pump your INT very very high. At 40 INT and upgrading this +6 through +10 (possibly at lower levels too) this staff will out damage other ones. At high INT you probably want to switch over to Crystal Sages or Court Sorcerer's. If you pump FAITH high enough as well, Izalith Staff could be a contender.

At 42 intelligence, Heretics +3 has 173 spell buff while Sorcerer's +4 has 174. Next upgrades take spell buff to 178 and 175 respectively. It'll be worth checking, but it might be the case that the Sorcerer's staff starts with a higher spell buff stat but gets overtaken by Heretics with enough upgrades. Granted, hardly enough to really matter, seeing the staffs you get later on, but you might save some resources by rushing this one instead of upgrading your starting staff.
