Patch 5.4 has been out for 3 days now, and I can’t believe they made –REMOVED– the new Warchief! Aside from YouTube spoilers, I’ve had only a couple of hours to run around the Timeless Isle, but so far I like the non-questy, exploration feel to it.

The few bread crumb quests that you can pick up are worth it. They’re easy, fast, and give you quite a few timeless coins, the main currency to purchase gear, consumables, and vanity items on the Isle. If you’re an altoholic like me, this Isle is a dream for gearing up your alts. Quite often, you will discover a treasure chest just sitting around, sparkling and stuff. Many times, a token for a piece of ilevel 496 gear will be in there, and here’s the kicker, it’s account-bound. You may also loot these armor tokens randomly off mobs, and of course, there will be a higher percentage drop from rares, which parties are often farming right now. So, if you find, for example, a “Timeless Cloth Helm” armor token, you can send it to your clothie alt, and then convert it into whatever spec-appropriate gear you want for that slot. However, if you just want to gear up your main, you may want to hold onto those armor tokens until you find or purchase a Burden of Eternity. With these puppies, you can upgrade your armor token to ilevel 535. You can loot this once per character from the Blazing Chest near the Ordon Sanctuary. After that, you need to either purchase it for 50,000 timeless coins or get real lucky with a drop.

I’ll be back next week with more tips and tricks from the Timeless Isle and patch 5.4

Remember, you can also hear my segments on The Instance, Rawrcast, The AIE Podcast and Convert to Raid.
