(Possible) Legendary Staff - Preview
A few forum threads appeared on the forums (nice work on Datamining the legendary staff!), people asked me tons of questions, it's time to try to do a preview of the legendary staff!

Disclaimer
This is not an official preview, the whole post could just be speculation going wrong. There is definitely a lot of data available and it's definitely enough to assume that this is indeed the legendary staff but unless you hear it from a blue poster, anything I post could be a giant lie.

In any case, nothing is official, nothing is final, this is just data from a test server.


Weapon Model
The staff has 3 models and we can assume that it will be upgraded through multiple quests/events like Shadowmourne. The upgraded is much more visible than with Shadowmourne and it looks like you will even add parts to your staff at some point.

Icons
The staff seems to have a lot of icon, hints of various stages of construction/quest.

Icon Name Icon Name
INV_Arcane_Orb INV_Flaming_Splinter
INV_Staff_Branch INV_Stave_2H_FirelandsRaid_D_03_Stage1
INV_Stave_2H_FirelandsRaid_D_03_Stage2 INV_Stave_2H_FirelandsRaid_D_03



Quests
A couple of quests added in the patch seems to be related to the staff. Most importantly, it seems that the questline is heavily tied to the Keepers of Time.




A Legendary Engagement / A Legendary Engagement
Objective - Speak to Anachronos in the Caverns of Time.
Description - I expected that I would find you here, . But then, we of the bronze flight have somewhat of an advantage when it comes to such things.

*Coridormi smiles.*

For reasons unknown to me, my master seeks audience with you. I would counsel you not to take this invitation lightly, . Anachronos seldom has cause to interact with mortals. Wisdom would dictate that you seek him out in the Caverns of Time at once.

Speak to me when you are ready and I shall personally deliver you.


A Wrinkle in Time
Objective - Speak to Anachronos in the Caverns of Time to witness the future of Azeroth.
Description - Listen carefully, , for though we are only beginning, time already grows short and the consequences of our failure are unfathomable. An event in the recent past has been obscured from my vision by the most powerful of magics. Its impact, however, has not.

If action is not taken to change the course of this timeline's future, the outcome is clear. Brace yourself, mortal, and behold the future of Azeroth.


All-Seeing Eye
Objective - Collect 25 Living Embers from Firelands and 3 Sands of Time.
Description - I perceive the questions that burn within your mind and I must confess that I share in your uncertainty... a rare position for one such as I, and a most unsettling one. As I scour time to find traces of this obscured event, you must aid me in the creation of an Eye, both to test your worthiness, and to provide an essential tool in the unraveling of this mystery.

Venture into the Plane of Fire, , and gather Living Embers. Bring them to me with Sands of Time and I will create the Eye.


On a Wing and a Prayer
Objective - Bring the Timeless Eye to Coldarra.
Description - Time well spent, mortal.

While you were struggling in the Plane of Fire, my watchers and I were able to determine where and, most importantly, when our vision was obscured. We have discovered that the shroud was placed over the Nexus, far to the north in the realm of the blue dragonflight.

I have attuned the Timeless Eye to show you the occurrences that remain hidden to us here. Go at once to Coldarra and search out a place suitable for the Eye's activation.

Travel well, friend.

    Get off your high horse and get over yourself, people like you make this game worse.

    In regards to if its a healer or DPS staff, blizzard said it would be DPS but to do that they would have to make the proc a stacking thing based on direct damage, but....this would mess with warlocks and shadow priests since alot of their damage is not direct but dot based. if the proc only works on damage then i dont see why a healer couldnt use it. I think they will have to make it bad for healers....i don't know maybe make the proc drop a stack when you cast a healing type spell?

    As I want legendaries to be rare.. now I hope most guilds will drown in these staves just for knowing you got your elitist mouth shut.

    ... what? MMO-Champion has always been about datamining since the creation, the site only became popular because i datamined the shit out of patch 2.1.

    You're a very bad troll sir.

    This, anything that makes an Elitist nerd rage or QQ is a win in my books. /leetest-hatered

    And if so, will there be some way to compensate Shamans for the fact that they'll be losing over 13k armor from not being able to use a shield, whereas all the other staff using classes lose nothing, because offhands don't have armor.

    Perhaps just put armor on the staff for Shamans to compensate for a shield of similar gear level.
    Nothing, because PVE items like this are not designed for PVP. You can always swap to a one hander and shield if you are getting meleed anyway.

    What I am wondering is if this is going to need 25 man raids to complete or if ten mans will suffice? I am part of a ten man raiding guild and would hate to be discriminated against just because I come from a smaller guild, I would love to have the chance on this for my Lock. It seems that with the shared lock outs now and the emergence of the smaller raiding guilds it would only be fair that 10 man guild get a stab at obtaining what looks like it is going to be a sweet weapon.

    Sadly the staff doesn't look as cool as i thought it would

    Compared to Shadowmourne, the most recent legendary this is quite a bit underwhelming.

    Blade of the Witching Hour + Book of Binding Will + Offhand enchant = 376 int, 448 secondary stats.

    Chelley's Staff of Dark Mending = 341 int, 456 secondary stats

    I don't think it'll be hard for a legendary to make up for 35int ;D
