New (Possibly) Legendary Staff Datamined By Mmo-Champion!
So Blizzard said the first legendary for Cataclysm would be a caster staff and it looks like they delivered on that; this is the first caster dps legendary since vanilla so casters rejoice! The picture above shows it's three stages so it looks like it will start off epic and be upgraded several times to become legendary.
To start off you will need to collect 25 Living Ember which appears to be the new primordial saronite, meaning it will drop off of bosses in the new raid; then you must combine the ember with three sands of time which cost 3000g each from a vendor. No more quests after that one have been datamined but one assumes the killing of raid bosses will be required to get the staff to it's third, legendary, stage. No word as of yet if heroic kills will be required or not. Personally I hope that players must kill bosses on heroic to get the final staff as legendaries should be legendary.
Here is a video showing the staff:
