^ Yes, that and Noris were some awesome looking staff designs. I also personally agree, the new 2nd age staff looks &&&&&&&& and hardly depicts the 'elegance' a LoreMaster is supposed to portray. I can imagine myself using the Staff as an actual weapon rather than to use magic with. On another note, i'm not currently ranked high enough for the 2nd age Rank 10 staff, but i think it looks okay, particularly due to the short length of the wood, which is a nice change from having a staff the size of a player on your back.
