I believe that these caches are dropped from Ordos as a way of giving people a extra reward for completing the legendary questline and also defeating him.
Or perhaps a new transmog set (with stats) that you might get for completing wave 30 in endless mode.
Though this is only speculations.
This item seems to be similar to Latent Kor'Kron Armor...
The "Creates" tab lists both ilvl 496 and 535 items. Has anyone received a 535 item from these caches?
i think you have to spend 50k tokens on an upgrade thing and use it on the cache to receive a 535 item
Gearing Up for Patch 5.4
When used, this Timeless Cache will instantly give you a random piece of Item Level (ilvl) 496 gear appropriate to your current loot specialization.
Particularly lucky (or persistent) players might find themselves in possession of a Burden of Eternity, an extremely powerful artifact that, when used on a Timeless armor token, causes it to create an even more powerful item rated at ilvl 535.
Gives you a random piece of iLvl 496 gear appropriate to your current loot specialization.
The gear you receive from it is soulbound and the slot selection is random, so you can get (for example) pants even if you already have 496+ ones.
Armor cache is BoA, you can send it to an alt and let them use this cache to receive free gear.
should go to an undergeared alt.
There really are a lot of drops for your main while completing the quests alone or farming rep.
Don't worry. Along the way you'll also find rares, treasure chests and mini events.
Rares are group loot: Everyone who fought a rare gets his/her own loot generated and has loot rights when that rare is killed.
Chests: I think they're phased per individual so that there's no competition but I'm not 100% sure.
Mini events: Just visit the ships around the island and maybe wait a little. Also random spawns of usable objects that trigger events.
You'll mostly receive drops for the character's armor class that you're currently playing with.
In conclusion it's easier to bring your undergeared character(s) to the Timeless Isle and start with some quests when you want to gear up than to use your main and hope for matching drops.
You'll mostly receive class matching loot along the way.
About the coins
The coin vendor is a trap.
) for a chance to get some random loot.
Yes it's random *shudder*. But the price per key is super low and you'll always get some coins back even if you didn't get an item.
As a holy paladin with holy loot spec, I got
Amaranthine Cloak of the Impatient
(iLvl 496 + 0/2 upgrades, +673 Haste).
EDIT: Currently this item is not listed in the "Creates" tab of this page.
Today I purchased one on my Blood spec Death Knight hoping to get a set of shoulders and instead it created
of the Bladewall which is also not on the loot table. I wonder if it would have a chance to create a trinket, as well.
Maybe it was a bug, but the last two times I've opened this item I've received rings, not armor. They were spec appropriate, and they were upgrades, but rings are not exactly plate. I don't see rings listed on the loot table for this item.
I got out of it cloak
twice in a row with expertise
The gear you receive from it is soulbound and the slot selection is random, so you can get (for example) pants even if you already have 496+ ones, and it can also give you a cloth back piece and rings. Which is very annoying.
Imagine my surprise when I open one of these Plate Armor Caches and get a ring. I was looking for a piece of Plate Armor, I already have rings. You know, since "Plate Armor" is in the name. /facepalm
What is everyone doing with these if they are a wrong armor class? I've sent my plate to an alt. What do I do with the leather pieces? I would love to d/e them but I can't open them. Just sell them for the 5g? I don't mind it at all, especially because I have soo many, but if there is a better option please let me know. Thanks.
