The staff has recently been formed, incase no one knew.
40 Splinters are collected and when combined with the part off Kel'Thuzad and the other part from C'thun, you complete a quest chain and form Atiesh Greatstaff of the Guardian
Theres a different staff for mage, warlock, druid, and priest, with each class having a unique aura.
Priest 62 healing:
Mage 2 crit:
Does the whole group get 1 splinter each? Or only 1 can get the splinter?
im lv 53 now and i want to try and get the staff before wotlk. is it worth wile to try and get it or will it be replaced with outland items. and if so, is it still possible to get a group for the raids.
This was the best staff in the pre-BC game, but now it is worthless except just to say that you have it. The +150 spell damage is easily outdone by numerous BC staves; for example, the S2 Merciless Gladiator PvP staff has +225 spell damage, plus has better stats on stamina and intelligence, and only costs around 27,000 Honor points. For that matter, there are some one-hands that do better than this; the Scryer's Blade of Focus is +247 spell damage and only costs 150 BoJs...and it is FAR easier getting 5-10 people together for a heroic dungeon/Kara/ZA than it is to get at least that many 70s together for a raid where the epic drops are not going to be as good as many BC blues. And as for the "teleport to Kara" power, not only can mages now teleport to Stonard/Nethergarde Keep for a short run to Kara, but players can also teleport directly to Kara from Shattrath City one they reach revered with the Violet Eye.
Even if you find enough friends willing to do Naxx with you until you collect 40 shards before the expansion, I would suggest just sitting on them until WotLK goes live and see if there is a level 80 version of this, and then pray that it uses the same shards to make it. If it does, you are in fantastic position to be the first person in the world to have the staff. If not...well, see if your friends will help you get the rest of it so you can have a pretty trophy on the wall. In reality, the best reason to run Naxx at this time would be just to become familiar with the layout and how it works so that you're better prepared for it in the expansion, assuming that Blizz doesn't make too many changes to it.
There is no level 80 version of this, and with the original Naxxramas being removed from the game, this item is no longer attainable. There is a similar item being introduced in the Ulduar instance in patch 3.1.0, but it is a healer mace item, so mages and locks are once again without any legendary items they can win and wield.
Edit: My mistake; I thought the Violet Eye guy in the World's End Tavern would teleport you to Kara once you reached revered just as the Keepers of TIme representative at the opposite bar does to the Caverns of Time. Looks like such is not the case. In any event, though, what I said earlier about the "teleport everyone to Kara" function of the staff is still trivial at best, and really outdated with the mage ports to Stonard/Nethergard Keep.
Due to Nax being re-released in WotLK this staff will be re-released aswell... very much hope so... just want it because of its lore value and shiny orange name

Yeah, they just put
in to give people a
outdated with the mage ports to Stonard/Nethergard Keep.
I think you mean
. ;) But yes, even without teleporting, you can always just fly back to the Portal and take a quick ride to Karazhan, then summon your party. It's not a big deal.
not only can mages now teleport to Stonard/Nethergarde Keep
There is no teleport to Nethergarde. There is one to Theramore though.....
Can you confirm this with a link? Everything I can find indicates that Ebon Hold is the Death Knight starting area, and not a wow classic Naxxramas.
No results for "Image of Kel'thuzad" either.
I'll happily rate down this comment if you can prove me wrong.
The worthlessness of this staff is actually kinda debatable, depending on group composition.
For personal DPS, it's certainly going to be a downgrade, but in a group of casters, the staff buff alone is responsible for an overall +dmg to the raid of 115 (for the warlock version). Overall it brings the +dmg to 265 (you personally have 173 of that).
If you're a warlock tank, for instance, there are a few situations where your personal DPS doesn't matter so much as your contribution to the raid. While it isn't going to make the difference in the encounter, it's nice to augment your party if you're not doing much else but building threat and taking hits.
Still, I think any theorycrafting on the subject would probably just result in declaring it a sidegrade at best.
did the staff have to portal to Kara when u finished it or was it added when Kara was released?
I see the splinter is still in the loot tables of the new Naxx.
Can the staff still be made?
Is it the save as the old staff or a new level 80 version?
I can confirm that players are unable to obtain splinters in the level 80 version of Naxxramas.
The staff is no longer attainable (I assume), as Naxxramas has been moved to Northrend.
It's actually quite funny to see this item is listed under "Junk" while it, tbh, really isnt in my oppinion ^^;
Anyway now that they won't drop anymore one could say it's junk. Gratz to the ppl who have Atiesh. =) Take good care of it ^^;
I mean, why have they done that to this staff! I waned it because it gives teleport to Karazhan freely. Damn! Why couldnt blizzard keep that quest!
Seeing 36 of these every day in my warlock's bank makes me a very sad Panda.
Its Possible Get It In Pre-Tbc? :o
They should add this to naxx just for the Nostalgia.
Atiesh was broken into 42 pieces (40 shards, base and head), hrm, ironic that something possessed by the creator of the destroyer of worlds was broken into the answer to life, the universe and everything.
Oh man you were so close I feel bad for you, I really do :-(
Mind posting a link to a screenshot? I know you're probably thinking what for but I haven't seen more than a few of these drop over 4 years ago when we were raiding vanilla naxx and I don't even have a damn screenshot left thanks to my HDD at the time going caput.
Hopefully the future will bring a new druid legendary! rouges really needed 2 legendary daggers in one xpac..
we got jack since vanilla!
