Alliance LARP

In Alliance, combat with a staff is sort of limited (for example, no thrusting, no attacks that would cause you to take a hand off the staff), so no, it's not particularly powerful. It's a good, cheap defensive weapon for casters, plus you can block with one hand while throwing packets with the other, so there's that. But if you were building an optimal weapon-user, staff probably isn't the best way to go.

No, staffs are the same as other weapon. Perhaps it depends on how you use them.

Draven summed it up well -- they are excellent defensive weapons. I have seen a fighter use staff and short sword as a fighting style which he seemed to enjoy but I do not know if I would classify it as any more (or less) effective than a sword and board.

Staff is also cheap to buy for everyone since it it just 4 BP across the board for all classes.

Using a staff is somewhat notoriously useless as anything but a defensive thing, and even then it's not worthwhile unless you're a magic user and you're using it as a wand.
