Azra's Staffs is a quest in The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.


The quest can be started by speaking to Neloth and asking if he needs help with his research:

Can I help with your research?: "Perhaps later. For now I have a slightly more personal request. You see, I'm a collector. Of staffs. Magical staffs. In particular, those made by Azra Nightwielder. Through some divinations, I believe I've located one. If you retrieve it, I'll give you a staff of my own making. Nightwielder's creations don't really hold up in comparison to what can be made today, but they have a sentimental value for me. You understand."

He can also be questioned further about Azra Nightwielder:

Who was Azra Nightwielder?: "He was the original shadowmage. His advances in magic are legendary. Less well known is that he was also a pioneer in the field of enchanting staffs. Every staff of his that I have uncovered has led me to greater understanding. Today we would consider his techniques rudimentary, but the genius is still evident."


Travel to a radiant location in Skyrim or Solstheim, and retrieve the staff which is always located in a chest. The staff will be found in either a Bandit Camp, Dragon Lair, Dragon Priest Lair, Draugr Crypt, Falmer Hive, Forsworn Camp, Hagraven Nest, Vampire Lair or Warlock Lair.
