The Infernal Staff of Herding was a craftable staff in Diablo III. It was needed to access Whimsyshire on Inferno difficulty. As of version 2.0, any version of the Staff of Herding will grant the player access to Whimsyshire on any difficulty, so it is no longer necessary nor possible to upgrade the staff.

It has an Item Level of 1, and requires character level 1 to be used.

Only one bovine in all of Sanctuary could possibly have a use for this.


The Infernal Staff of Herding could be crafted using the Plan: Infernal Staff of Herding, 1,000,000 gold (50,000 on console), and the Hellish Staff of Herding. Upgraded versions of the plans could be bought from Gorell the Quartermaster beside the Armory in Bastion's Keep Stronghold. Like its predecessors, it would only be there during the Prime Evil quest.
