Faction: Mages Guild
Quest giver: Raminus Polus
Reward: Your completed Mage's Staff


This is the first quest for the Mages Guild after Join the Mages Guild.

Raminus Polus asks you to travel to Wellspring Cave, east of the Imperial City, to find Eletta and Zahrasha to find wood for your Mage's Staff.

After you enter the cave, you'll discover that the people you were supposed to meet have been overtaken by Necromancers. Make sure to search Zahrasha's body on the floor for the key as soon as you enter to unlock the door once you reach the end. You'll fight a number of them in the small cave, and then come out on the otherwise impassable island just east of the city. There are a few more Necromancers, in particular Noveni Othran. Defeat them and you can find your Unfinished Staff in a stone chest. If you can't defeat them, escape to the city and when they follow you the guards will attack them.

Return to Polus and after some consternation about the necromancers, he sends you to Delmar at the Chironasium. There he asks you to compose your staff for Destruction, Illusion or Mysticism. In each of these areas, there are three spell choices:

The power of the staff's spell will depend on your level and will always have 40 uses. After choosing, Delmar asks you to return the next day for your completed staff. It will be found in the cupboard behind him.
