(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.

    However, it's probably like the TBC stuff at the same time - you are going into the Firelands to introduce you to the Caverns of Time storyline for a future raid. The quests are almost assuredly referring to the War of the Ancients.

    I'll be very surprised if those "visions" are not about the War of the Ancients in one way or another, and then we'll see it in the patch after the Firelands, probably.


    Edited to show speculation and for other things.
    Found this on wowwiki:

    In Cataclysm Edit
    This section concerns content exclusive to Cataclysm.
    Main article: War of the Ancients (instance)
    According to a recent interview with Tom Chilton, which took place on June 8th, 2010, War of the Ancients will be a Caverns of Time raid instance released some time during the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm patch cycle.[1]


    So yeah looks like the quests will be related to it, damn im starting to drewl a little thinking about it :F

    I like how the runes illuminate on the cloth at the bottom of the staff on phase 3.

    Just a heads up for people that aren't reading the front page. Blue posts confirm that this staff is not the legendary staff and that the legendary staff will be 'fancier' even still. :P

    We still don't know anything about it. I'll follow your line of logic and say that even though I don't know anything about your kids, they'll definitely be failures. See how that works?
