The Edictum Praetoris does more damage than the Staff of the Cosmic Whole below 25 defense for the Necromancer/Wizard and under 20 defense for the Mystic. Staff of the Cosmic Whole outdamages this staff at higher levels of defense, until greater than 125 for the Necromancer/Wizard and 106 for the Mystic. This means that you should use this over the Staff of the Cosmic Whole at low defense and high defense. These estimations are, of course, assuming that all 3 shots hit, which is slightly more difficult to manage than a 2-shot staff. They also assume that each class is maxed in Attack.

It should also be noted that Staff of the Vital Unity outdamages this staff at all levels of defense.

Before Patch X.33.1.0 (May 2020), this item had a Feed Power of 700.

Its name roughly translates to “governor’s command”, edictum meaning edict and praetor meaning governor or leader, praetoris being the genitive form.
