Does it repair the staff it is cast with?
no
Actually yes, but only if the staff's durability has been somewhat used up.
its ironic if it doesn't
Usefull with sanctum crossbow and bracing knuckle ring build (+ dark clutch ring)
As a person who only uses magic for utility on a melee build I can say that this spell helps reduce the consumption of Repair Powder... one Cast of the Repair Spell saves you basically 2,500 souls a pop on what would of otherwise went to buying Repair Powder, and reduces the need to grind for Repair Powder to begin with! It is also VERY helpful on low soul memory builds with fragile equipment, trust me.
Real good when used with ash knuckles and ivory king great sword two handed
