This item drops from random mobs on the Timeless Isle, and is a on-use item. Once used, you get a 60 minute buff which lets all your abilities increase a useful stat by 8000.
It procs fairly often, and the new buff you get lasts 15 seconds.
This item can/will be placed in your cooking bag, in case you're searching for it !
Be careful with this item! If your old buff has not worn out, and you use one, the buff will *not* be reset. However ,you will use up the item you clicked. If you wish toreset a fading timer, instead click it off before you use your next book. At least until this bug is fixed.
The tooltip SHOULD say what the proc duration is... sloppy work Blizz.
It does stack with other consumables that gives buff on the Timeless Island,
However watch out, it does
persists through death, so simply - if You die, You loose all the buffs.
This item can be used at the same time as
I spent age just using one thinking they would replace each other
After a bit of trial and error I've figured out that the buff this triggers (in the case of Intellect -

Has anyone else noticed a marked decrease in these and the other two buffs dropping? I'm on my 4th toon on the Isle and with the first three I took very little time gathering enough of these to always have some available for after being ganked by a fellow hordie. So many, in fact that I chose to dump any more than one stack (20) to save on bag space. But with this 4th toon I often don't have any. I'll get the daily 20-elite quest and run the whole thing without one drop! It's hit or miss whether I ever have these buffs on. Has Bliz nerfed their drop?
Everytime I see this item I always sing "Book of aaaaages!", like the song Rock of Ages by Def L:eppard. Wonder if Blizzard meant it like that, lol.
As of the 6.0.2 patch, the proc on the buff given by this item grants 313 of your useful stat.
It feels like this item has a higher chance of dropping after having completed
for the day. I need to do a controlled experiment to be sure.
