The first version of the staff is found in the Temple of Xrib Refugee Annex in Sightless Pit during Much Ado About Snow Elves. A few days after giving it to Calcelmo upon quest completion, a courier will deliver a note from Calcelmo. The final version can then be found placed in the Hall of Lost Empires.
- The staff will be brought along by Auryen during the quest 'Trial of Trinimac', and is required to open the front door to the Temple of the Venerable Ones.
- After finishing Much Ado About Snow Elves, the replica recipe will unlock (Elven Smithing perk needed).
- The display can take both the original and the replica.
