Defeating eye of Magnus help, Mage guild spoilers

So I'm up to the part where I need to defeat arcano, I know I have to use the staff on the eye but nothing happens. I use it till it's fully depleted and still nothing happens to the eye or can't hit arcane. What am I doing wrong? Any help please?

Wait till Tolfidir or whatever his name is tries to attack ancano first, then when Tolf tells you to use the staff of magnus on the eye of magnus, use it!

what worked for me and i guess i figured out was use the staff on the eye until it closes up and then attack ancano...he's pretty easy to kill.....

You need to use the staff on the eye untill it returns to its original form. Then you can hurt Ancano. Hurt him big time!

After a while I think Ancano becomes vulnerable, so you can kill him :)

And yeah, I thought it was pretty short as well :\ Honestly, I liked Oblivions mage guild quest line better.

thanks guys. I was however experiencing a glitch and had to reload. Arcano just kept zapping the eye and the eye wasn't opening at all. Once I reloaded it did the whole starting to open and move thing and the staff worked.
