Timeless Isle Rares (Timeless Champion)
The Timeless Isle is chock full of rares. There are probably more rares packed onto this little island than anywhere else in the game. It even has all sorts of fun rare events, treasure chests, things to explore, you name it! For the purposes of this post however I will only be covering the elite and non-elite silver dragons.
Thirty-one of these rares are required for the achievement: undefined. (One of them that I am including in this post is not part of it, but still a silver dragon.) The items that these rares can drop are also a part of the achievement Going To Need A Bigger Bag. They aren’t kidding either, we seriously need some new bags with like 50 slots for this place. That, or bottomless bags with no limit.
Loot & Tapping:
As I had mentioned in the Timeless Isle Preview post I did several weeks back, these rares have the same tapping system as the Isle of Thunder rares. You do not need to be grouped with other players to obtain loot when killing these guys. Even faction doesn’t matter. As long as you participate by hitting them, you will be able to loot them. Although anyone can tap and loot, actual loot received will vary by person.
Each rare will drop several Timeless Coins. More difficult rares seem to drop more coins. They all have a chance to drop “Timeless” gear such as Timeless Leather Leggings, and also Burden of Eternity (a very nice item that will turn those leather leggings I just linked into an item level 535 item instead of 496.) Each of them also has a small chance to drop different items that the rare Pandarian Champions drop such as Big Bag of Herbs, Battle Horn, etc. Many of these rares have their own unique loot as well. As you scroll down through this post, you can see which items drop from each rare.
Now as far as finding these rares – you’ll probably easily stumble into more than half of them by just running around and exploring the Isle. When one is nearby you will see a small skull marked on your mini-map. I’ve done my best trying to make a map of where to find them all that wasn’t totally funked up and as easy to read as possible. With this many rares that was not an easy task!
So anyway, here is the map below. For a more precise description of where you can find any one of these rares just scroll down through the post for that particular rare. Next to each rare I have written out more specifically where they can be found.

(To see an even larger image of this map you can also right click the image and view it in another tab. From there you should be able to zoom even further.)
I have screenshots of all of these rares below, and because there were just so many of them I decided to group them by location starting off the coast and then moving inland. To the right of many of the rares I have also included screenshots of their special drops. (There were a couple of drops that I was not able to get before running out of time. I will add those pictures to this post when I receive them or when I can bother someone who has those items!)
Originally I was going to include each rares abilities with some info on how to down them as well, but honestly there’s going to be so many people molesting everything when the Isle first comes out that most of their abilities won’t matter. Just don’t stand in bad stuff and your pretty much good to go. For anyone that is interested in their abilities my friend Joe does a great job of describing them in the video embedded toward the end of this post.
As always, to see larger images of any of the screenshots just click on them. Enjoy!
(I should also mention, if your interested in some lore and extra flavor behind these rares be sure to check out the Time-Worn Journal sold by Mistweaver Ai for 500 Timeless Coins. The full journal text is alternatively available to read on the Wowhead page for that item.)

Timeless Champion Rares Videos:
Over the past few weeks I’ve had several opportunities to run around this awesome Isle with wowmartien. We kicked ass, got ours handed to us, and had a lot of fun killing rares while exploring this wondrous isle. Joe has taken hours and hours of footage and smushed them into these phenomenal guides. If you have the time, please take a look!
