Use Archmage Vargoth's Staff to make contact with Archmage Vargoth.
If you lose Archmage Vargoth's Staff, speak to Ravandwyr at Area 52 to receive a replacement.
This quest is the 3rd step in a quest chain in Netherstorm that begins with  .
Now, you will be able to use the archmage's staff to contact him.
He resides in the Violet Tower, on an 'island' to the southeast. The tower is both sanctuary and prison to him, cursed as it is. Kirin Tor can neither enter nor leave, keeping me apart from my master.
The staff's magic can penetrate the tower's defenses, but only if invoked by one outside the Kirin Tor.
Take the archmage's staff and use it to conjure his image. Tell him what has happened and that I have not completely failed him.
<Archmage Vargoth's image examines you as you convey Ravandwyr's message.>
Ravandwyr has everything a master can expect of his apprentice. When I gave him the staff and told him to flee, I hoped that he would use it to find help and free me once Kael'thas's forces withdrew from the tower. Since then, I have learned a great deal about the nature of the curse.
