I do wonder the purpose of this item. Could it be for gearing alts (mmochampion states as being boa) or is it just another heroic scenario style reward of gear? Hopefully it's the former, as I get bored of gearing new characters to get into LFR to do alt runs.. This could definitely make the slog slightly less tedious! :)
My BOA Timeless Leather Armor Cache became soulbound Cranefeather Gloves of the Stormblast.
If I'd known what this item did I could have sent it to my latest 90 and used it to gear them.
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.
I just looted a ring from this on my rogue.
It does not only create leather items. I created today
Unfortunately I had that item already. So it was a waste :-(
The loot list for this does not include rings. However, I just looted a ring from the bag. Someone should update the loot list, because I specifically changed to my offspec to do these bags because all I needed was rings on the mainspec. This wowhead list does not include rings, so I ended up with a ring in my offspec, sad day.
I have a question, on my main toon with 7/8 armor pieces on it, is it wise to buy this item or not. Does the item create a random armor or does it create the last item you need.
