Earth, Light, and maybe Dark could have some uses due to their secondary mods, but from what I could tell during my brief playing at freebie time in December, the new weapons +magic damage are better for lower tier nukes while the staves start losing out on huge chunks of MACC compared to ilvl options even if they may hit a bit harder with unresisted T4s. So, I'd err toward no. Or grab a Chatoyant if you want a space saver while figuring things out for yourself.
Violence good. Sexy bad. Yay America.
