Atiesh, the Befouled Greatstaff is the second step in the legendary quest chain to create [Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian]. Players must kill both Combat 15 C'Thun and Combat 15 Kel'Thuzad in order to complete this quest.

Objectives Edit

Anachronos at the Caverns of Time in Tanaris wants the Staff Head of Atiesh and the Base of Atiesh.

Description Edit

You question why you are still alive. After all, you have in your possession an item of great evil. The answer is not clear, <name>. I only do as I must.

Kel'Thuzad sits atop his throne in Naxxramas, plotting... He seeks that which you hold and holds that which you seek.

As for the base of the staff; the dwarf, Brann Bronzebeard, held it when he entered Ahn'Qiraj. He has left Ahn'Qiraj but the base of Atiesh remains.

Should you succeed in recovering the pieces, return them to me.

Progress Edit

In its current form, the staff is far too dangerous to be in the hands of a mortal.

Completion Edit

There is a being within... a being not of this world.

Quest progression Edit

  1. Neutral 15 [60R] Frame of Atiesh
  2. Neutral 15 [60R] Atiesh, the Befouled Greatstaff
  3. Neutral 15 [60D] Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian


Although the quest chain can no longer be started, players this quest (or any later quest in the chain) who have already obtained the [Staff Head of Atiesh] can still complete the legendary quest chain and get the Feat of Strength Money achievement Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian. The staff head only dropped from Kel'Thuzad in the original 40-man version of Naxxramas, but the base still drops from C'thun.
