Using the Staff of Herding

General Discussion
Do you lose your staff once you go to Whimsyshire?
You have infinite access to the level of rainbows and happiness.
Idk what gave me the idea that you lost it. Thanks guys.

Also, once you upgrade can you not downgrade?
You just use a hell staff in nightmare mode and it'll work. You thought you lost it maybe because there has been issues of staffs glitching disappearing probably.
HEY CHARLIE I WANT TO GO TO CANDY MOUNTAIN. CHARLIE!!!
I have two of these, one that I learnt already in the black smith and one I looted yesterday.

The one from yesterdays find says already learnt and can not be sold.

To craft it it requires items that I do not have like the color bottle thing, also costing 50k for a staff with 3.5 dps?

It is used to get to "pony land" the staff for dps wise is useless.

Are the materials to make it, like the color bottle and tooth shape item come from act 1? Or all of the acts?

The Infernal staff will open all 4 difficulties. The Hellish staff will unlock Hell and below. Etc. Only need to make it/upgrade it the once.
i !@#$ING lost my %^-*!@# staff. Is that what's happeneing to people? I never used it I never upgraded it, it's just $%^-ing gone. i REALLY don't want to have to collect all that *!@#ing $%^- again.

My brother has his staff though, can we both use his one staff to go together?
Unfortunately, you need to heed this warning with the staff of herding. It is not consumed after usage on normal. However, once it is upgraded to Nightmarish, Hellish, or Infernal, it disappears with, or without, usage. It is a well known, multi-page thread in the bug forum.

Blizzard has no idea why it's happening.


But I never upgraded it. I jept it normal. I wasn't sure how it worked so I didn;t want to spend the money on it until I was sure.

That bug must effect normal staves too cause mine is totally !@#$ing gone.

So can I go with my brother with just his one staff or do we both need one?
Has anyone been reimbursed for their staff or at least their gold by submitting a report to support?
