"After Azmodan’s death, I sent a squad of men to block the path to the crater.
Only one of them returned, bearing this strange weapon. He was badly burned --
his armor had melted into his skin in places. He perished a few hours later.
We threw the staff over the walls, hoping never to see it again."
—Captain Haile of Bastion’s Keep
