Once the Nerevarine reaches the rank of Warlock, Ajira in the Balmora Mages Guild will tell him about the Staff of Magnus.
The staff is located in the cave of Assu, northwest of Molag Mar on the slopes of Mount Kand.
The cave is medium sized but it does contain a few leveled daedra with Dreveni Halren, the wielder of the staff, and another mage.
