A mysterious island, lost for millennia to the currents of time, has emerged from the mists off the eastern coast of Jade Forest.

It is assumed by both the Bronze Dragonflight, Wrathion, Anduin Wrynn and many other factions as being an isle that has no set time - and so travels through time appearing at random intervals, in different time periods. It is notable that the island has no day and night cycle due to its damaged timeways. Also that flying mounts can not be used on the island.

It has appeared this time in modern day Pandaria at an opportune time for heroes to hone their skills in preparation for the fight against Ordos <Fire-God of the Yaungol> and Garrosh Hellscream.

The Timeless Isle was where future Emperors tested their wits and skills against the four celestials in order to prove themselves; today it is open to many different factions including the Tillers, the Lorewalkers, the Alliance, the Horde, and even the Bronze Dragonflight are all fascinated with the new isle and puzzled at its very existence.

Overview

Timeless Isle is a new area added in Patch 5.4 for level 90 players.

  • Similar to Battlefield: Barrens but with more content.
  • Dynamic events, some really difficult mobs, more rare spawns, world bosses, treasure chests, pet battle things, and lots of other things to do.[1]
  • There will be a few UI changes to help alert you to events that are happening on Timeless Isle.[citation needed]
  • No central hub where you go to do things, but activities will be spread out and hidden all over the isle.
  • Home to five new world raid bosses! Players may face each of the four Celestials in a trial of combat.[1]
    • In addition to the four Celestials, Boss Ordos <Fire-God of the Yaungol> in his sanctum atop the isle is a difficult world boss that requires you to have a legendary cloak to get to him.[1] He will respawn every few hours or so,[citation needed] but the main gating mechanism for him is getting a group together that all has the cloak. He drops items that will be anywhere from Normal to Normal Warforged quality.[citation needed]
  • Celestial Tournament for advanced pet battlers.

Why go there?

Gear up

This new zone is by far the best and fastest way to gear up a level 90 character for Heroic mode dungeons and scenarios. The chance of getting random epic item drop of item level 496 is actually quite high over the course of completing quests, defeating rare mobs (and rare elite mobs), and farming   Timeless Coin [Timeless Coins]. Also, many of the drops are actually tokens that will convert to a spec-specific item. The chances of getting an epic drop are greatly increased when killing rare-elite and rare mobs, but you can also get them killing elite and normal mobs.

Getting there

Upon reaching level 90, players will automatically get offered the quests: A [90] A Flash of Bronze or H [90] A Flash of Bronze. It will lead you to Chromieω τ ϖ on the upper terrace of Mogu'Shan Palace (by the Archaeology [Archaeology] area) who will give you a [Curious Bronze Timepiece] and the quest: A [90] Journey to the Timeless Isle or H [90] Journey to the Timeless Isle. Using this item will give you a one-time teleport to the Timeless Isle. Players who do not have [Wisdom of the Four Winds] (Pandaria flying) cannot access Chromie, and may require a lift to the higher levels of the shrine.
