Staff of Towers in Vault of Moawita

Staff of Towers

The Staff of Towers is a highly powerful magical artifact that was created in the First Era during or shortly before the Alessian Slave Rebellion by the Ayleid archmage Anumaril.[1] The staff consisted of eight segments, each being a semblance of a Tower in its Dance.[2]


Some time after its creation it was dismantled, and seven of its segments were hidden by White-Gold Knights in distant Fold-Places. The last segment, also known as Segment One, remained with Anumaril.[2]

After the Rebellion Anumaril fled along with other Ayleids to Valenwood. They were welcomed by the Green-Sap's Elves as long as they agreed not to dissonate the greensong and all the Heartland High Elves agreed to this except for Anumaril. He asked the Great Camoran to show him the Green-Sap. Within the great graht he found his desire—Perchance Acorn. He then attempted to convert the region into a new home for the Ayleids by plunging Segment One into the acorn. This resulted in stopping the Elden Tree from moving by turning its perchance acorn into a definite acorn, but it was not enough to convert the tree.[2]

In the 6th sentury of the Second Era time breaches started to appear across Tamriel. Loremaster Celarus and Josajeh of Psijic Order ascertained that the Staff of Towers was the cause for the appearance of breaches.[1] The scryers of the Psijic Order were able to detect the fragments of the staff by studying the collision of tonal waves near the breaches which could be observed with the help of the Vestige, who placed the Psijic Seals in most of the provinces. After the discovery of fragments' location the Vestige collected them, and they formed a staff, as the fragments could not be contained separately because some force kept on drawing them back together.[3] Subsequently, after the staff's assembly, Josajeh stole it to change various events in the past. Her plan was thwarted by the Vestige, who defeated Josajeh from alternative timelines. After that the staff was recovered and placed in the Vault of Moawita on Artaeum.[4]
