That's just amazing spell damage.
you also need the base off c'thun in AQ40 and 40 splinters off bosses in Naxx
To craft Atiesh:
You must first collect the 40 shards. This will form the frame of Atiesh. They drop from randomly from bosses in Naxxramas.
After forming them, u need to visit Anachronos in Tanaris. He will as you to get 2 items:
You must kill Kel'Thuzad: The most powerful mob in the game to date. He drops the Head of Atiesh, and is the final boss in Naxxramas.
You must kill C'Thun, the final boss of AQ40. He drops the tail of Atiesh.
Finally, after obtaining all three parts, you must go to Stratholme to exorcise the evil spirit of Atiesh. This evil spirit drops a legendary 1H sword during the encounter. It can only be used in Stratholme and will disappear if its wielder logs out for more than 15 minutes. The sword has +600 Attack Power. The spirit more specifically, is called: Atiesh <Hand of Sargeras>
Good luck getting the staff, and congratulations if you already have it.
BTW, this explanation is somewhat condensed. for a full explanation, visit
Update/edit: Thanks rainbow, that is correct. As for disarming, that is not true. The sword drops as part of the encounter, and can be picked up by ONE raid member.(##RESPBREAK##)268##DELIM##Buuloki##DELIM##
The "Use" effect will create a portal to Karahzan, it won't teleport you inside the instance.
I must say that I am disappointed with the looks of this item. For a legendary staff I'd picture some huge staff with crystals and spikes and fiery sparks and lightning surrounding it, something totally awesome, something to rival the looks of the other legendary weapons. Is this the case, though? No...instead, the only legendary staff to date resembles the tiki torches on my deck. An unlit tiki torch at that, which is even lamer. Blizz, I am quite disappointed. Such delicious stats on a stick that is used to keep mosquitoes away. Well, at least we know one thing's for certain...if Blizz ever releases a mosquito boss into the world of warcraft, he's totally goin' down...
is this class specific? I am a druid, could I use the mage version of the staff, or am I stuck with healing only?
Hi, where i could get the quest of the staff? because i wanna get that staff to make a portal to karazahn and thats fantastic.
This staff belonged to medivh, a prophet in Warcraft III
Medivh is much more than a mere prophet though. For those who wish to know more:
This staff has been formed once that i know ... it was quit amusing because soon after forming the staff they ported a ton of low level alts to Kara where they corpse laid in a massive pile. Th screen shot should not be that hard to find...
Failure and Risen were the names of the person and guild (dont remember which was which)
FAILURE SAVE US!!!!
Is there any quests for this staff? were do you get this staff from?
So this is quite usefull enen after BC, nice stats and nice "use" effect... and always a good trophy to have so u can say "hey look wat i gots" to everyone lol
Interesting what Shade of Aran says , in Karazhan once you enter his room with the staff: "Where did you get that? Did HE send you?!" He seems scared by the staff...
wow that was a cool staff but its an intersting thing ... maybe i'll give it a try :P good luck with it
i think there will we a better version of this staff in the new expansion wolk, couse blizzard told that naxx is gonna come back . so i wont be suprised to see an new version
This staff comes from one of my favorite characters from Warcraft II and III: Magus Medivh. Atiesh was originally owned by Aegwynn, the Guardian of Tirisfal. When her son, Medivh, was born, she gave the staff to him. Medivh was possessed by the dark titan Sargeras and commited many horrible crimes, including killing his father Aran and opening the Dark Portal, letting the Orcs into Azeroth. For his crimes, he was slain by those he loved most.
He returned, however, and was cleansed of Sargeras's evil magic. He warned Jaina Proudmoore(the Human), Malfurion Stormrage(the Night Elf), and Thrall(the Orc) about the Burning Legion's attack on the world. These three heroes banded to together and defeated Archimonde.
IS GOOD IT IS YES?!?
kk,took that staff yesterday with my 70 lock.....best staff ever seen actually(also best 4 show of in front of your friends :P).GREAT stats,good 4 group(actually 1nce they called me just 4 the effect of the staff)and ofc you are gonna kill
a mosquito boss
as our friend ansepheth said
Yes, yes, his son is quite powerful...but he has powers of his own!!
Druid = Green Ribbon
Mage = Red Ribbon
Priest = Yellow Ribbon
Warlock = Blue Ribbon
The Mage staff is the best one of them all and this staff is possibly the best staff in the game. definitely worth the effort to get
If you don't want to visit the link DarthMuffin posted i can tell you:
Medivh was the great last guardian. His mother had the spirit of Sargeras inside her, which she got when she killed Sargeras (it is said that it might only have been a vision of sargeras), and when she had a baby, the spirit was transferred to Medivh, (his mother was a guardian as well, the guardian of azeroth) and during puberty, he was in coma for several years, which led to the spirit of Sargeras to taking almost complete control of his body... When he woke up it was Sargeras that had control of him. Sargeras used the dimension gate or something to bring the Orcs to Azeroth. With Khadgar as his servant, he lived in Karazhan until the ones he cared for the most killed him, (they were his friends before he got possessed, I presume) which made Sargeras' spirit go back into the Twisting Nether.
Medivh was "reborn" as The Prophet (I am uncertain if he was actually reborn, or something else happened), to make up for his "mistakes" as shown in Warcraft III. There he warned the different races about the coming of the Burning Legion and that they would destroy this world if they didn't go to Kalimdor to stop Archimonde from reaching the World Tree. Because King Terenas Menethil of the humans in Lordaeron didn't listen to his warning, his people were almost wiped out by the scourge Prince Arthas Menethil (who would later become the Lich King), son of King Terenas, didn't listen either, and lead his people to their doom when he retrieved the runeblade Frostmourne and slew Mal'Ganis, in retaliation for what he and the Scourge had done to his people.
Arthas slew his own father and betrayed his people, though Jaina Proudmoore managed to lead the human survivors of Lordaeron to Kalimdor, and was to meet with the oracle (Medivh/The Prophet tricked them to meet by pretending to be the oracle). After meeting the Oracle, they joined up with the orcs, and they went together into Ashenvale Forest to defend the World Tree. There they met resistance from the Night Elves who tried to drive them away from their lands, and were prepared to stop the legion by themselves, as they had done before. Medivh, however, appeared to Jaina Proudmoore, Thrall and Malfurion Stormrage in a dream and told them to come to a specific place,(they didn't know they were going to meet each other) and united them against the legion, and they set a trap to make Archimonde go to the world tree. Overconfident because he had defeated all the remaining resistance, he didn't see the trap and climbed the world tree. The ancient spirits of the land swarmed and killed him (this looked like a swarm of wisps flying around him in the cinematic), and thus he was destroyed. This however, had cost the Night Elves their powers of immortality.
Quote from Medivh in the ending of the cinematic of the end of Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos campaign: "... and now, I will take my place amongst the legends... of history..."
Though this is for level 60 it is still one of the most powerful items. Note that a lot of TBC epics give more spell crit and spell damage, but this one gives quite good amount to all party members.
That's just it!
Plus it is truly unique item with legendary quality, isn't it honor to just wield it?
Looks just like it's icon....
Aran is Medivh's father, and his shade ( Shade of Aran) is currently a boss in Karazhan, if u wield Atiesh while you fight him, a special script opens and he says something like "Where did you get that?". I would do karazhan just to hear Shade of Aran say that. =P.
its Really sad that they realesed TBC 6 months after Naxxramas was opened , 6 monts = about 26-27 naxxramas runs , and no guild killed all bosses in the first week to get some extra frames of atiesh , so only 1-2 persons in some guilds got it , i think people who obtained this item is not more then 200
He's scared because medivh is the one who killed him, right before he went into the coma...
Id like to add that this staff is NOT only available to mages like it says over the Screenshot. It is available to preists, druids, warlocks, and mages. each staff gives a different bonus pending on the class.
I have a question.... if its pre Burning Crusade why does it telreport you to karazhan?
its sad that this legendary staff looks horrible compared to Thunderfury, it always seems like melee classes get the coolest weapon models...
ahh. Atiesh. Imho it is the most over hyped weapon in wow. medivh might as well used a big stick and he would still be considered a great mage. Atiesh is a symbol. I think it should be epic no more. lets look at other weapons.
Ashbringer-a sword made from a cyrstal of pure evil and it had holy spells cast on it until it was its o&*!@ote and that cyrstal was turned into a sword by a lich
Warglaives of Anethron-Imo just like atiesh
Sulfron, hand of Ragnaros-a weapon made by the ashes of his dead opponents. he was a ELEMENTAL LORD. it says his HAND. so you are weilding the hand of on of the last titans
Thunderfury, blessed blade of the windseeker- a like less lore but the same as sulfron the weapon of one of the last elemental lords
thori'dal, The stars fury-just a kick as bow infused with the power of the SUNWELL
you see what i mean...
and what i really dislike is the fact the atiesh is legendary and corrupted ashbringer is only epic
Actually Ragnaros and Thunderaan are not titans, but they are elemental lords. Ragnaros is the elemental lord of fire, and Thunderaan is the elemantal lord of lightning. An example of a titan is Sargeras, the leader of the Burning Legion. And the name of the bow is Thori'dal, the Star's Fury. But you are correct about Ateish, Medivh's power came mostly from the fact that he was extremely powerful and skilled in the art of magic. Ashbringer was not made by a lich, it was forged by paladins from the Order of the Silver hand I believe, after they all cast holy spells on it to make it a crystal of pure light. And they are called the Warglaives of Azzinoth, not the Warglaives of Anethron.
Mage is version is still "spell critical rating" on 3.0.2 PTR and not "critical rating" and the aura is still only per party. So no change here with WOTLK.
this staff easily lasted into T4 raiding (Kara, Mag, Gruul) before being replaced. even then, while some of the early epic staves were better for the mage himself, it was debatable whether they were worth sacrificing the crit aura.
Is this staff even obtainable now since Naxxramas is in Northrend?
Gives this staff a visual which, whenever you melee, it has crows(I think?) Circling the top of the staff.
According to MMO-Champion a new "Atiesh-like" legendary mace is coming in Ulduar raid. It will also need some "Splinter-collecting"
Can u get it 4 mages and what does comments in Green and Bloo writing mean?
i respect blizzard kept the original model but COME ON the most powerful staff on existence is an enlarged morracha? (however u spell it)
There is a truly legendary element to this staff when you see one in game... considering, this legendary was removed at the induction of WotLK and is not farmable by level 80 players as is Thunderfury, Ragnaros, even the Warglaives of Azzinoth and Thor'idal. When you see Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian up on the back of a mage, priest, warlock, or druid, you know you stand before a mighty individual, likely to have conquered unspeakable horrors you've never even seen.
Announced at BlizzCon that this staff would remain unobtainable.
Why does the Use make portal to kara? Why would anyone wanna go to kara pre TBC?
Bring it back! As a mage I want to be able to teleport to Karazhan!
As much as I love the lore of this staff, I understand why it isn't obtainable but the model is something I love. Please in the future can we have more 'plain' staves? I tire of 'PURPLE GLOWING STAFF OF ANTI GRAVITY" or "SKULLS EVERYWHERE SLAYING STAVE" or even "GIGANTIC LIGHT POST"
Patch 1.1 - Patch 7.0.3
I wish 2 things.
1. For this staff to be obtainable again.
2. To be able to transmog items.
In late vanilla (and throughout the Burning Crusade), this was the
version of the legendary
weapon. It came in four flavors (see the tabs above), and is no longer obtainable. Ravens circled it periodically.
From patch 1.11 "Shadow of the Necropolis" in June 2006, to patch 3.0.2 "Echoes of Doom" in October 2008, Naxxramas hung over the
Tier 3 raid armor
. After lots and lots of Naxx runs (no small feat at the time), 40 splinters could be combined into the

. "There is also a minor issue regarding the staff being a conduit for Sargeras's evil." Provided you had worked your way up to neutral with the
knows all, and he sent you out on
. Once on the quest, the
at the end of Naxx, and the the
(thanks, Brann, for that...). Anachronos then sent you out on
, and then kill him of course.
In lore, the Greatstaff was wielded by
, up through
Medivh, who was possessed by
lvl 60 Mage with Full T3 and Atiesh
There is actually one remaining level 60 on the US Servers with this. His name is Kithkaid on the Draka server, here's his player page:
if you got the staff in vanilla you still have it now and can still use it right?
Oh wow I just got my LEGENDARY STAFF! I bet it has all kinds of crazy effects and the graphics are super detailed and uniqu...ummm it's a pine cone on the end of a stick...#wtfblizz
The art team really pulled out all the stops on this one.
Looks like the staff is now in the hands of Khadgar, Medivh's apprentice. He's set out to Draenor to track down Gul'dan and leads the new legendary questline. Looks like he also led the charge against (ahem, the running away from) the Iron Horde that takes place in Tanaan Jungle.
As much as the staff was useful for anyone who could use it, this was clearly the only canonical one. The others were simply because it wouldn't be fair to make such an intensive legendary be for just mages.
Currently wielded by Khadgar in the Warlords of Draenor expansion.
Real shame this can't be earned anymore. I've never even seen it in game and I've been playing since Vanilla.
Featured in the movie, wielded by Medivh and given to Khadgar to hold on for a while.
You're a guardian harry!
seeing stuff like this, atiesh, thunderfury, naxx40 gear etc, and i regret so much for not playing back then, wish i wasn't spending my whole time on dumb diablo 2, some of the items are available through the bmah but its not about obtaining :(. Now i'm old and working full time so i won't be able to wield those stuff once vanilla launches again, anyway wish i have wasted my youth on classic wow instead of d2.
It looks like if you have this on one class you unlock the appearances of all the other variants for transmog on their respective classes (Mage/Warlock/Priest/Druid).
