The Timeless Isle is an island off the coast of the Jade Forest. It was introduced with Patch 5.4 and, unlike areas usually added in patches, it features no questing hub and is only very loosely connected to the events of the patch it comes with.
On the island, players will receive very limited guidance from NPCs and will have to discover most secrets by themselves or from reading guides such as the present one.
While the island plays a role in the last part of the Mists of Pandaria quest line, it has no direct relation to the Siege of Orgrimmar. That said, there is a quest line on the island that will give more lore information on the events that led to the siege.
As we already said, there is no questing hub on the isle. After an initial quest line, your experience will be mostly self-directed and you will be able to freely do any of the following activities.
- Questing. There are a few quest lines that take place on the island, including the last part of the Mists of Pandaria legendary quest line. There are also two daily and two weekly quests, and a cooking quest line that rewards you with the recipe for crafting a raid cauldron that provides +300 food to everyone in the raid.
- Raiding. The five outdoor bosses of Patch 5.4 are located on the island. They are all part of the Mists of Pandaria legendary quest line. Chi-Ji, Niuzao, Xuen, and Yu'lon can be attempted by anyone grouping up with a player on the proper stage of the legendary quest line. Ordos can only be accessed by players who already obtained their legendary cloak. More details about this in our Breath of the Black Prince guide.
- Pet Battles. The island houses a pet battle tournament called the Celestial Tournament that you can complete once a week.
- Shaohao Reputation. Emperor Shaohao is a faction that you can earn reputation with by killing specific mobs on the island.
- Rare Elites. There are 31 rare elite mobs to kill on the island.
- Chests and Treasures. You will find many different types of chests and treasures on the island. They all contain loot or coins you can use to buy rewards.
- PvP and PvA. In addition to regular PvP, the island features a PvA system (Player versus All), in which you can fight against any player flagged for PvP, even members of your own party.
You can discover mosts of the secrets of the island and complete most of the achievements on your first day, if you wish to do so. However, there are quests and events that will take a few weeks to complete. For example, the lore quest line requires you to complete a weekly quest several times and the Celestial Tournament will have to be won several times to buy all the rewards it has to offer.
Accessing the Island
The island can be accessed by flying from the Jade Forest. Note that flying mounts do not work on the island, so you will be dismounted as you approach. While doing the introductory quest line for the island, you will be able to teleport there using the Curious Bronze Timepiece that you will have been given.
As you can see in the map above, most of the island can be accessed without any difficulty. We highlighted 3 areas that will require you to perform something special, in order to reach them.
- Blue. As you can see on the
map, the bridge leading to the Ordon Sanctuary is broken. As a result, you
will need to resort to other means to enter this area.
- You can use the Gleaming Crane Statue, which is located on the rocky pillar that joins the bridge leaving from the Blazing Way to the broken bridge. Using the statue will catapult you in the air and you will be able to control your descent. This statue is normally meant to be used to access a chest for one of the achievement, but you can reach the Ordon Sanctuary if you aim your descent towards it.
- From the very end of the broken bridge, it is possible to slow fall to a patch of grass, which is located slightly to the left of the remaining part of the bridge on the Ordon Sanctuary side. You need to mount and jump towards the patch of grass. Immediately after you jump, cast Slow Fall on yourself (or use any similar effect; the Golden Glider sold by Ku-Mo around the Celestial Court works well) or have it cast on you.
- The island features a number of Highwind Albatrosses that fly at varying altitudes. When one of them gets close to the ground (that usually happen around the Celestial Court), attacking it will cause it to capture you and fly you around the island, following a predefined path. When you want the Albatross to drop you, attack it again and it will stop moving. Kill it and it will release you.
- If you swim far enough from the island, you will reach the Time-Lost Waters. There, you can use your flying mount. So, go north of the island and mount up. Once mounted, go as far up as you can and then fly towards the Ordon Sanctuary. Eventually, you will dismount, which is when you should use a Slow Fall effect on you, in order to reach your objective. Note that this trick can work to reach any other high place on the island.
- Yellow. The Red Lake can only be accessed using an Albatross or the flying mount trick. We described both ways above.
- Red. The central part of the Ordon Sanctuary can only be accessed by players who have completed the Mists of Pandaria legendary quest line and obtained the legendary cloak. Players without the cloak will simply be ported back to the Celestial Court, in the center of the island, when they try to enter the sanctuary.
The only faction on the island is Emperor Shaohao and the only way to farm reputation with him is to kill Ordon mobs.
There are 3 currencies that you can use on the island: Timeless Coins, Celestial Coins, and Bloody Coins.
Timeless Coins are the primary currency on the Timeless Isle. Every mob, quest, chest, and object on the island will grant you some. There is no limitation to how many coins you can earn in a single day or a single week, so you can farm them to your heart's content. Timeless Coins can be used to buy rewards (see next section).
Celestial Coins are related to the Celestial Tournament, a weekly pet-battle scenario you can do on the island that rewards you with 1 Celestial Coin. These coins can be used to buy pet-battle related rewards.
Bloody Coins are obtained by doing PvP and PvA on the island. Each time you kill another player, you will be awarded 1 Bloody Coin. After collecting enough coins, you will be able to buy rewards from Speaker Gulan.
The Timeless Isle offers numerous rewards that we will try to list exhaustively here.

Mobs on the island have a chance to drop Timeless pieces of gear, such as Timeless Plate Spaulders. Using such an item creates a corresponding item level 496 piece of gear that your current spec can use. There are timeless items for every slot, excluding weapons.
In addition, Mistweaver Ai sells Timeless Cloth Armor Cache, Timeless Leather Armor Cache, Timeless Mail Armor Cache, and Timeless Plate Armor Cache for 7,500 Timeless Coins each.
All these timeless items are account-bound, which means that they are a great way to gear up an alt.
Burden of Eternity can be used on a timeless item (but not on a Timeless Curio). This will create a piece of gear with item level 535 (up from 496). Burden of Eternity can be obtained through the following ways:
- it has a low chance to drop from many mobs around the island;
- it has a chance to be contained in many chests around the island, including the chests from Master Kukuru;
- it has a 100% chance to be contained in the Blazing Chest (which you can only open once per character);
- it is rewarded by the The Archiereus Of Flame quest;
- it is sold by Mistweaver Ai for 50,000 Timeless Coins.
Gear can also be bought with Timeless Coins from Mistweaver Ai and with Bloody Coins from Speaker Gulan.

Finally, there are dozens of vanity items that can be dropped by mobs around the island. Obtaining them all will grant you the Going To Need A Bigger Bag achievement. So, you can simply click the achievement link and browse the achievement's objectives on WowDB to have a complete list.
The Noodle Secrets Long Forgotten cooking quest line starts on the Timeless Isle. Eventually, that quest line rewards you with the ability to create Noodle Cart Kit, Deluxe Noodle Cart Kit, and Pandaren Treasure Noodle Cart Kit, which give better raid food buffs than pandaren banquets.
When a player creates a noodle cart, it acts like a vehicle and exiting it causes the cart to disappear (it disappears anyway after a few minutes). Each player can hold a maximum of 5 noodle soups (which means that they can store some food for later use).
- Killing mobs
- Pet Battles
There are many buffs you can get on the island, which are very helpful.
Timeless Nutriment is given by a number of objects on the island: Ripe Crispfruit, Sand-Covered Egg, Charged Crystal, Huge Yak Roast, Roasted Seed, Fire Poppy, Southsea Firebrew. To help you identify them, we made screenshots of them and shared these screenshots below.
Two of these objects give an additional buff when you right-click them. Charged Crystals give you Strange Energy, while Fire Poppies give you Smoldering Spores (which is very useful when farming mobs outside the Ordon Sanctuary).
Mobs on the island have a chance to drop these three items: Dew of Eternal Morning, Book of the Ages, and Singing Crystal. Using them causes your damage dealing abilities to have an extra effect.
These items are also rewarded by Path of the Mistwalker daily quest.
There are many Time-Lost Shrines located around the island. Right-clicking them will grant you a random buff from among: Fortitude of Niuzao, Wisdom of Yu'lon, Chi-Ji's Hope, and Xuen's Strength. Obtaining all these buffs (not necessarily at the same time) will grant you the Pilgrimage achievement. Instead of granting you a buff, a shrine will sometimes deal a high amount of damage to nearby enemies because it will have been corrupted by Ordos (although there is no way to tell prior to clicking the shrine). Shrines become inactive for a bit after a player interacts with them, meaning that no one else will be able to get a buff from that shrine until it reactivates.
The map above shows all the locations of all the Time-Lost Shrines we have found. We will update the map, if we find more. Below, you will find the exact coordinates of the shrines.
- 22.76, 29.31
- 26.69, 52.26
- 27.94, 71.91

A short introductory quest line leads to the Timeless Isle. It starts with A Flash of Bronze... ( Alliance / Horde), which is automatically given to level 90 characters in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms.
The quest line continues with Journey to the Timeless Isle ( Alliance / Horde) and then with Time Keeper Kairoz ( Alliance / Horde). At this stage, Kairoz will give you two quests A Timeless Tour and Time In Your Hands.
- A Timeless Tour leads to Hints From The Past, followed by Timeless Treasures (opening any chest works for completing this quest), and Strong Enough To Survive (a weekly quest).
- Time In Your Hands opens up two new quests, each starting a different
- The Essence of Time starts a quest line with Kairoz that will take you several weeks to complete.
- The Last Emperor starts a quest line with Emperor Shaohao that you can complete in a single day.
Kairoz Quest Line
The Essence of Time leads to Empowering the Hourglass. This weekly quest requires you to gather 50 Epoch Stones by killing mobs around the island. We advise you to farm them from Great Turtle Hatchlings on the western coast.
Every time you will empower the hourglass, you will unlock a new part of the quest line, each of them requiring you to use the hourglass at a specific location:
- A Vision in Time: Siege of Orgrimmar;
- Refining The Vision: Siege of Orgrimmar;
- Seeking Fate: Siege of Orgrimmar;
- Hidden Threads: Siege of Orgrimmar;
- Courting Destiny: Temple of the White Tiger;
- One Final Turn: Caverns of Time.
One Final Turn marks the end of the quest line.
Emperor Shaohao Quest Line
The quest line started by The Last Emperor is a great way to gain a bit of reputation with Emperor Shaohao. After completing The Last Emperor, you will receive the following quests:
- Timeless Nutriment (see the buffs section);
- Wayshrines Of The Celestials (see the shrines section);
- Path of the Mistwalker, for this quest, you do not have to kill rare elites, any elite will do: Brilliant Windfeathers and Great Turtles are probably the easiest mobs to kill;
- Drive Back The Flame (see the Shaohao reputation section);
- The Archiereus Of Flame.
Cooking Quest Line
The cooking quest line starts when you find an Old Sign Fragment under the broken bridge on the Timeless Isle (at 52.14, 46.15 to be precise). This item starts the Noodle Secrets Long Forgotten quest, which is followed by The Lost Secret of the Secret Ingredient.
The Lost Secret of the Secret Ingredient requires you to go to the Temple of the Jade Serpent and kill the Sha of Doubt. After killing the Sha, do not exit the instance, because you need to turn in the quest to the scroll in the same room as the Sha. Also, try to get the tank to stay with you, because the next quest, Bad Feeling, Worse Result, requires you to kill an elite mob on the balcony at the end of the room where you fought the Sha of Doubt. To defeat this mob, just avoid all things thrown at you.
After completing Secrets Lost, Forever?, you will receive Secrets Lost, Forever?, which is followed by Catch and Carry. Catch and Carry rewards you with the ability of making Noodle Cart Kit and requires you to do the following.
- Go to the Imperial Granary. There, you will notice a cart with a downward pointing arrow above it. This is where you will need to drop the sacks of grain.
- At the granary, there are Granary Vandals throwing down sacks of grain. Get under them and use the Grain Catching Sack quest item that you were provided with, and catch sacks by position yourself under them as they fall. The quest item gives you a buff that allows you to catch the sacks. Without the buff, you just get damage when a sack lands on you.
- You can only carry 5 stacks of grain at a time and mounting, taking damage, or using a spell will cause you to lose your stacks. Because of that, you may want to clear the path back to the cart before getting started.
The next quest is Is That A Real Measurement?. It requires you to craft a Noodle Cart Kit and to enter the Stormstout Brewery to collect 20 Sloshes of Brew from the Alementals, who are all located before the last boss.
After that, you will have to complete These Aren't Your Fatty Goatsteaks. This quest requires you to craft a Deluxe Noodle Cart Kit and to farm 50 Fatty Turtle Steaks from the turtles on the Timeless Isle. Killing Great Turtle Hatchlings seems to be the most efficient way of gathering these steaks.
The final quest of the quest line is The Secret Ingredient Is.... Simply enter the scenario and follow the instruction. You will be rewarded with the ability to create Pandaren Treasure Noodle Cart Kit.
There are two daily quests on the island.
Path of the Mistwalker is unlocked as part of the Emperor Shaohao quest line. As we have said before, the best way to do this quest is to kill easy elite mobs, such as Brilliant Windfeathers and Great Turtles. It rewards a buff item, 50x , and 1,000 Timeless Coins.
A Timeless Question is a daily quest given by Senior Historian Evelyna. It rewards 100 Timeless Coins and requires you to answer a lore-related question. Below, you will find the list of questions and their answers.

Completing the scenario grants the The Celestial Tournament achievement. Defeating all 13 trainers grants you the Master of the Masters achievement.

Using your Celestial Coins to buy all 4 Celestial Pets grants you the Celestial Family achievement.
Aside from a few quests from Emperor Shaohao (including the Path of the Mistwalker daily quest, which rewards +250 reputation), reputation with him is earned solely through killing Ordos mobs on the island. Gaining reputation with Shaohao unlocks many rewards, as listed here.
In this section, we are going to list the raw reputation given by each mob (without counting reputation bonuses) before explaining the fastest ways to farm reputation.
|Ordon Oathguard and Ordon Fire-Watcher||+10|
|Burning Berserker and High Priest of Ordos||+15|
|Eternal Kilnmaster, Blazebound Chanter, and Molten Guardian||+20|
|Champion of the Black Flame, Cinderfall, Urdur the Cauterizer, Flintlord Gairan, and Archiereus of Flame||+40|
If you are alone, you are better off farming in the Firewalker Ruins or restricting yourself to the Burning Berserkers in the Blazing Way.
If you are in a party, then you should farm reputation outside the Ordon Sanctuary. Simple sweep the area back and forth (including the western part of the Ordon Sanctuary, which is accessible to everyone). When you die, run to your corpse, otherwise you may have to aggro a lot of mobs on your way back to your group.
Reaching exalted reputation with Emperor Shaohao will grant you the Emperor Shaohao achievement.

- Cranegnasher needs to be summoned. At 43.89, 69.89, you will find the corpse of a dead Fishgorged Crane. Inspecting the corpse indicates that these cranes are the favorite food of a creature. This means that you need to kite a live Fishgorged Crane onto the corpse to summon Cranegnasher (you will find these ads just south of the corpse).

Scrolls of Challenge are sold by Mistweaver Ku for 500 Timeless Coins, if you are at least honored with Emperor Shaohao.
Rare elites and mini-events that spawn them appear on your mini-map. There is no need to tag them to loot them. For most of them, their health increases as more players join the fight.
Killing all the rare elites grants the Timeless Champion achievement.

Where There's Pirates, There's Booty
Where There's Pirates, There's Booty requires you to find 3 objects: Sunken Treasure, Blackguard's Jetsam, and Gleaming Treasure Satchel. Note that you can loot each of these objects once a week and that they appear on your mini-map.
Sunken Treasure is located inside the sunken ship at 40.0, 94.5. To open it, you will need a Barnacle Encrusted Key, which you can loot from one of the nearby Cursed Hozen Swabbies. Inside, you will find a Cursed Swabby Helmet, among other things.
Blackguard's Jetsam is guarded by a few hostile pirates inside an underwater cave, the entrance of which is located at 17.07, 57.09.
Gleaming Treasure Satchel is located on the pirate ship at 71.60, 82.91. To reach it, you will need to jump on the ropes, as shown in the screenshot below.
Extreme Treasure Hunter
Extreme Treasure Hunter requires you to loot 3 chests: Gleaming Treasure Chest, Rope-Bound Treasure Chest, and Mist-Covered Treasure Chest. Note that you can open each of these objects once a week and that they appear on your mini-map.
To reach the Gleaming Treasure Chest, which is located at 49.68, 69.41, you need to jump from column to column from the Firewalker Ruins, as depicted in the screenshot below.
To reach the Rope-Bound Treasure Chest, which is located at 53.87, 47.34, you need to jump from rope from the Blazing Way, as depicted in the screenshot below. Players can also use a Golden Glider to get there and Mages can use Blink.
To reach a Mist-Covered Treasure Chest, you need to use the Gleaming Crane Statue (pictured below), which is located on the stone pillar joining the bridge that leaves from the Blazing Way to the broken bridge. Doing so will throw you in the air (you can control your fall) and you will immediately notice the many platforms around you. Simply choose one with a chest, land on it, and open it.
Legend of the Past and Timeless Legends
There are four objects on the island that share spawning points: Cloudstrike Family Helm, Flameheart Shawl, Riverspeaker's Trident, and Snowdrift Tiger Talons.
Finding one of them will grant you the Legend of the Past achievement, while finding all of them will grant you the Timeless Legends achievement.
So far, we know of 9 spawning points, some we found ourselves, others were reported on Wowhead. The map below shows you where to find the legends. You will find coordinates after the map.
- 30.7, 55.2
- 47.3, 80.8
- 49.9, 71.7
- 55.0, 72.8
- 55.3, 50.3
- 55.6, 59.3
- 63.1, 45.3
- 65.4, 51.8
- 68.4, 60.2
When you right-click one of these objects, it gives you a buff that remains for 10 minutes. We chose not to list these buffs in the buffs section, because the objects are so rare that you will very rarely benefit from their corresponding buff.
- Cloudstrike Family Helm gives Cloudstrike.
- Flameheart Shawl gives Flameheart Shawl.
- Riverspeaker's Trident gives Rivercall.
- Snowdrift Tiger Talons gives Snowclaw.
These buffs grant you a new action button that you can use during combat to kill mobs faster, but you can also use them to break the cave-in at the Mysterious Den (see explanations for Spelurk).
Master Kukuru's Chests
In one of the caves near the broken bridge, you will find Master Kukuru. If you pay him 500 Timeless Coins, he will give you a key with which you can use to open any of the chests in his cave.
Each chest has a chance to give you, in average, 400 Timeless Coins, or a piece of Timeless gear. So, farming these chests is a very efficient way to get gear for an alt, without spending too many coins.
You also have a low chance of getting a Burden of Eternity when opening Kukuru's chests.
PvP and PvA
After buying a Censer of Eternal Agony from Speaker Gulan and using it, you will be able to attack any player flagged for PvP, earning 1 Bloody Coin for every kill you make while the 1-hour buff given by the censer is active (it does not persist through death). The first time you use the censer, you will earn the Emissary of Ordos achievement.
Note that you cannot farm the same player all over again for Bloody Coins, as, upon death, they get a debuff that prevents them from granting Bloody Coins again for 10 minutes.
After collecting 50 Bloody Coins, you will be able to buy a Fire-Watcher's Oath, which makes it possible to collect Bloody Coins while doing regular PvP (World PvP or Battlegrounds).
By collecting enough coins, you will eventually earn the following achievements: Candlekeeper, Oathguard, Blazebinder, Kilnmaster, and Fire-Watcher.
All of the achievements have already been explained in the guide, except for Killing Time, Going To Need A Bigger Bag, and Zarhym Altogether.
Killing Time is very easy, as none of the mobs you need to kill is hidden or hard to find. You simply need to explore the isle thoroughly.
Going To Need A Bigger Bag is probably the hardest achievement of them all. It requires you to obtain dozens of items from mobs or chests on the island and will demand a lot of patience.
To complete Zarhym Altogether, you need to help Zarhym find his body. He is located on the right, as you enter the Cavern of Lost Spirits.
After talking to him, you will be sent to a spirit realm, where you have 5 minutes to find Zarhym's body, which is located in the room that is the furthest away from the entrance of the cave (see screenshot below for specific location of Zarhym). In order to make your way there, you will need to avoid many spirits. They are all surrounded by a beam of light. Entering it will cause them to detect you and remove you from the spirit realm. Should you fail your assignment (by taking too long or by being spotted by a spirit), then you will not be able to try again before the next day.
If you have read us this far, we would like to thank you for the time you spent on the site and we hope that the guide brought you all the information you needed.
