For the Horde version of this quest, see H Mage [8-30D] Mastering the Arcane.


Go to Shadowfang Keep and obtain Silverlaine's Enchanted Crystal from Baron Silverlaine, 5 bundles of Moontouched Wood, and 5 Ghostly Essence.


You have proven yourself a brilliant student and a dedicated servant of the Alliance. Word of your accomplishments has even reached the ears of the king.

In recognition of your service, King Wrynn has commissioned the royal enchanter to create a special weapon.

The materials required for your staff are found only in Silverpine Forest's cursed Shadowfang Keep. Travel there and find a lost heirloom of the Silverlaine family, a supply of moontouched wood, and the essence of the ghosts haunting the keep.


You will receive:


Did you bring the materials I'll need for your weapon?


Ah, I have been expecting you, <name>. Maginor Dumas has spoken highly of you and the royal commission only confirms his words. It is an honor to be able to craft a staff for you.


The quest turn-in, Lucan Cordell, is located in the enchanting shop along the Canals, just outside of the Mage Quarter in Stormwind.


Lucan Cordell says: So you're the one who ventured into Shadowfang Keep to retreive the rare and powerful materials hidden there?
Lucan Cordell says: Among the items you found in the keep is one that will serve as a powerful focus for your new staff.
Lucan turns to Jessara Cordell.
Lucan Cordell says: Jessara, hand me those dusts and shards.
Jessara turns to him.
Jessara Cordell says: Of course, Lucan. Here they are.
Lucan turns back to the counter.
Lucan Cordell says: Where did I put that scroll? Ah, yes, here it is...
Lucan enchants the staff.
Lucan Cordell says: At last, <name>, here is your staff. Wield it proudly in service to the Alliance.
