I have a question about the feat
Staff Fighting, more specifically the double weapon part.
For easy reference this is the explanation of the feat from the compendium:
Benefit: You can treat the quarterstaff as a double weapon. As a double weapon, both ends of the weapon deal
1d8damage. The primary end gains the
stoutproperties, and the secondary end gains the
off-handproperty. For more on double weapons, see Adventurer’s Vault, page 10.
I checked the Adventurer's Vault but I still can't figure out exactly what big benefit double weapon has. Is it that you can have an enchantment bonus (and those extra perks except enhancements to your rolls) on both ends of the staff ? Because even without the feat I'm able to equip
medic's weapon (on staff) in one hand and
staff of the traveler in the other for example.
