The Splinter of Atiesh is a tiny piece of the Greatstaff of the Guardian called Atiesh, which was last wielded by the final Guardian, Medivh. After Medivh's defeat, the mages of Kirin Tor searched the tower of Karazhan for any magical items. Finding Atiesh, they brought it back to Dalaran for study. However, every mage that came into contact with the staff tragically died. The Kirin Tor decided the best course of action would be to place the staff behind impenetrable barriers of magic. Unfortunately when the demon Archimonde destroyed Dalaran, the barriers broke and the staff was shattered into many pieces. Kel'Thuzad now seeks to rejoin the staff to gain enormous power.
Splinters of Atiesh drop off bosses in Naxxramas.
- See the Atiesh page for more information on the staff and the location of its other components.
