Awesome job. The staff doesnt look that legendary though. I reckon this is going to be a caster DPS staff, since they said something along the lines of not giving Legendaries to Tanks or Healers cause of them being the minority of the raid, but its only speculations. Hope for an awesome chain for that.
As of the stages of the Staff, i think a pretty good idea would be to make each stage of the staff a higher ilvl weapon, for example:
Stage 1 - Firelands tier ilvl
Stage 2 - 4.2 raid tier ilvl
Stage 3 - 4.3 raid ilvl.
They could just add another quests to the new raids, (quest for stage 2 would involve doing things in 4.2 raid), that way they wouldnt become obsolete, and it would keep some guilds raiding the old content. The downside of that is that these quests would need to be very hard to prevent everyone from having this weapon for the last raiding tier.

It's always the freaking wars, retardins, dick knights, and casters that get legendary weapons.
Let's not forget the TF which was used by rouges and COULD have been used by huntards aswell.
And ofc that bow for huntard....

If there are 3 models to this staff, it makes me wonder if they are going the same way they did with Smourne, Giving a decent epic item , then an even better item , then the legendary in this case.
Or if the looks will just play a part in some RP in a quest where they forge / craft it.
The first rule of Starfall is, You don't talk about Starfall!
Starting to get the hang of this model stuff.
Here are all 3 phases side by side.
The first phase obviously doesn't have a skin at the moment.
For a comparison here are some other staves from the tier:

also, I just noticed the writing on the third lights up, that's a nice touch :P
edit: looking at the other staves youve just done, I'm guessing theyre based on hyjal and the caverns of time, I have no idea why, they just look like they are.
youre amazing at this BTW :P keep up the good work

Seems to me that the weapon could start off in an alternate raid, and later be upgraded in the Firelands raid. All this wood makes me think of Hyjal and the Night Elves, though, so perhaps its simple roots (hah) begin with the Guardians of Hyjal and lead up to the empowering of the staff in the raid against Ragnaros.
Also, hunter weapon.
