Jacob noticed that Shinnok's Staff by it's own would not have fired energy attacks in the Mortal Kombat verse. It took Hawke's own expertise with staves in order to bring the magic out. It impressed Jake that the level of power his small group of insane sorcerers possessed was strong enough to harm and kill even Pit Fiends. Jacob fired off the eldritch bolts of power from Shinnok's staff at any Pit Fiend that threatened the others. However Jacob stayed in the back. He was currently far away from any threat, although Pit Fiends could use magical attacks, such as meteor swarms and fireballs, or raise the dead to attack. Jacob wondered if he should stop using the Staff and just resort to powerful spells next.
