: No more shines, Paulie.
: I said, no more shines. Maybe you didn't hear about it, you've been away a long time. They didn't go up there and tell you. I don't shine shoes anymore.
: Relax, will ya? Ya flip right out, what's got into you? I'm breaking your balls a little bit, that's all. I'm only kidding with ya...
: Sometimes you don't sound like you're kidding, you know, there's a lotta people around...
: I'm only kidding with you, we're having a party, I just came home and I haven't seen you in a long time and I'm breaking your balls, and you're getting fresh. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend you.
: I'm sorry too. It's okay. No problem.
: Okay, salud.

A clear reference to a certain shoe-shining Gnome in Northrend Dalaran. (
I bet there will be people who would forget their shoeboxes at home.
can anyone help with where to find this? Area, Coords, Etc .... Thanks in advance
Edit 7.0.3 It looks like this is a drop from
Instantly reminded me of
found the chest in dalaran appears to spawn at night for what it looks but for some reason i cant open it on my chars
Looks like this chest spawns on Sunday mornings (early at 00:00) no clue when it Despawns.
So far from what i can think off.
Rogue: Pick Pocketing mobs does not work. Pick Lock does not work
Demon hunter: spectral sight does not work.
Getting the shiny shoe buff from northrend dalaran does not work.
Nothing new about Sheddle Glossgleam as he gets drunk in the Inn at the middle of dalaran.
The chest itself happens to be facing the wrong way into the wall
Cant seem to see any object to interact with.
went to Sheddle in Legerdemain Lounge and spammed every emote nothing happended then i thought of his brother Shandy Glossgleam and how he cleans clothes so i went to a tailor supply vendor and purchased a dye and went back to the chest and it seemed to of moved position . i would assume that the chest moving is a bug
went around all over dalaran where both alliance and horde players are able to go as i interacted with every single npc i can find and looked all around every shop and found nothing.
am thinking of fishing in front of violet hold entrance like the old hidden chest from northrends version of dalaran.
supposedly it only shows up when he goes to get a drink. he seems to stay in the lounge for a long time, but I never saw it spawn. :(
Because I have yet to see direction as to where this is besides, "in Dalaran." It would appear to spawn at 44, 46. Those of you without cords, this is above the toy shop, behind where Sheddle Glossgleam stands between the two chairs.
Hey I have been trying to get this toy and was lucky enough to find the chest on Saturday night. I tried to open it but was unable to like the rest of you. For me the chest was actually backwards, so the front of the chest was clipping into the wall and it was also raised off the ground. I found this quite odd so I sent a ticket in asking if this was intentional, or if it was indeed a bug. I have just received a reply stating that a GM could not help me with this issue, and that the information had been passed on to developers to fix if this was a bug. So for now it seems the chest is broken, I hope this is fixed soon...I have shoes to shine! :)
can be found in the
). To get to him you need to
which is right next to it.
He is standing
the stairs right next to 3 chairs. If you sit on the left chair called "
" he will grant you a 1 hour buff
which leaves sparkles in your footsteps. It's a pretty cool buff if you want to look more interesting, be careful tho, the
buff is gone if you receive damage
. You can always come back and have him "sparkle" your shoes anytime (
for free of course
It is also
that he leaves his spot in the evening hours to get a drink at
The Legerdemain Lounge
and when he is gone a "
" appears. This chest can be looted and you will receive the
toy however noone knows exactly when that happens.
and I hade a chat about this.

Edit1: Does not spawn Tuesday Mornings (00:00 - 01:10am)
Edit2: Does not spawn Wednesday morning (00:00 - 04:37am)
Found Sheddle's Chest on Zul'jin at
3AM EST (12AM Pacific) Saturday night going into Sunday morning
at the Photonic Playground at
next to Sheddle's shoeshine seat.
It was facing backwards into the corner wall where he normally stands, and up for about 2 hours. I didn't see Sheddle when he initially left his positon to go to the Legerdemain Lounge, so I'll try to camp that this week. The chest is locked, and gives a "You can't open that." message when clicked.
Sheddle Glossgleam was drinking at the Dalaran Legerdemain Lounge during these two hours. He has no other text lines while there, only his usual vendor shop when clicked. He's not selling anything new at this time. We tried myself sitting in the shoeshine seat and either of us opening the chest--nothing. Rogue could not pickpocket Sheddle Glossgleam while at the lounge or while he still at the Photonic Playground, or lockpick the sheddle's chest when it was up. I've also tried sitting in the chair while equipped with some of old Northrend Sheddle's boots while he was on duty--another no go. We searched around the photo gallery and bar to see if he left behind a key, as well as talking to all of the npcs, but that turned up empty. Sheddle's brother (?) Shandy Glossgleam, who is on the balcony washing clothes, also didn't have any new speaking lines at this time. As far as I know, there's no other NPCs related to Sheddle or any that reference him in any way.
Other than a missing quest in wowhead (
), I'm not sure where else to look.
I checked at 4am central time on Hellscream and Chromaggus, and Sheedle was in the bar. Then I ran to his spot but the shoe shine kit wasn't there.
I'm guessing this is related, but I'm not sure how...
Logged in at 10am server time and he was in the Lounge drinking. No chest spawned.
I think this is a group quest. If the hints have been geared towards coffee, there are two interactive Coffee Grinders and one interactive Coffee Press inside The Legerdemain Lounge.
I can't hit all three at the same time, so maybe someone will form a group and test this?
I found the chest spawned last night like normal, facing the wall and slightly floating above the ground. Sheddie was drinking his cares away for a bit in the bar. I tried several things to get the chest to open. The jeweled lockpick, buying one of everything he sells, drinking all the coffee and also getting smashed. /bow to him also didn't work.
One thing to note, I was switching between two toons on the same realm and came back to one and found Sheddie back at his post and the chest gone way before he should have been. Roughly 45 minutes past the original spawn time. So I hopped back to the other toon and found that Sheddie was still at the Bar and the chest was still there. Sharding maybe?
Stuck around to see the chest spawn at the usual time. No way to unlock it. I tried everything everyone here said. Probably a bugged object like everything in this expansion lately, probably needs a patch to fix.
when Sheddle Glossgleam was present, i sat down in the wooden chair and he gave me a shoe shine. gave me
buff. waiting around to see if the box pops up, and if i can interact with it when it does.
A few thoughts/ideas on the Great Shoe Shine Mystery:
Sir Jonathan Trueheart sits at the bar in the Legerdemain Lounge. Clicking on him as either Alliance or Horde elicits the following response:
"Nothing like some kafa to get you started in the morning, or any icy Highmountain Refresher after a long day on the battlefield. I like Spiced Tea as a nightcap, myself. Have you tried the honey croissants? Deee-licious!
At least that's what I say. But you know... Im not really here for the coffee"
It very well could just be flavor text but it sounds a bit instructional and, moreover, a set of instructions that ends in the evening which is when Sheddle shows up. Also, all of the beverages sold by Mel are also unique to her.
This could help with the Great Shoe Shine Mystery. It could be its own unrelated mystery. It might be nothing at all.
I saw this mentioned on another page but it might also be worth noting that there are a couple empty flower pots on the bar.
Finally, I wonder if other Toys (Or perhaps Battle Pets) might be useful in solving the puzzle. A quick glance at my collection has Arcanoshower (Similar to what Sheddle's brother does), Findle's Loot-a-Rang, Moroes Famous Polish, and Vindicator's Armor Polish Kit.
Hopefully if other's have ideas or discoveries they'll be kind enough to post.
I just wanted to write down some of my ideas that you can try to maybe open this?
I havent tried any of this so far and I dont know if it will work... just ideas
What if you have no shoes / try taking shoes off after u got his buff then talk to him again.
Equip some of the gray (or low quality) shoes you can get from fishing or maybe normal drop.
Maybe try using the
when he is gone for drink (dunno just came up to my mind, because if you look on
Sheddle on wowhead he has a
as one of his abilities? (I imagine the wisp fly through the lock, unlocking the chest... I might be crazy)
Maybe wait with him till the moment he will go back from the pub, then follow him and sit on the chair... As he might still be drunk and tired to do the shoeshine, he might as well just unlock the chest to let you do it yourself..
Try getting drunk by some of the Northrend related drinks next to him in the pub or anything related to Coffee.
Try some emotes or drinks with
who is sitting next to him.. He might get angry and knock him down, letting you loot him for the keys? I just noticed his name "Punchy" so I thought of this.
Try using the
which by coincidence is a quest reward from a quest where you need to kill
who sits next to Sheddle in the pub. Maybe it could reveal some secret when u use it near the chest..
Just some ideas I got for this damn thing.. I want that toy too.. I will update when I try any of these or come up with new ideas :D
There are possibly three things I was thinking of to create distractions or cause the shoe shine kit to be accessible and they are having to do with the Friends show.
1. Ross and Rachel keep asking wheres Phoebee...so..find her or something.
2. The Page's cat keeps wandering thru..so there's a song called "Smelly Cat" on Friends..so make the cat stink or have a pet skunk chase it ?
3. Use the BFF necklace on Sheddle..or Ross or Rachel?
When someone sits in the shoeshine seat
"Let me shine your shoes, <class>."
"One shoeshine coming up!"
"Take care of that shine, <class>."
"Another shiny, happy person. Take care, <class>!"
Maybe a reference from R.E.M - Shiny Happy People :
"Shiny happy people laughing
Meet me in the crowd, people, people
Throw your love around, love me, love me
Take it into town, happy, happy
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine...."
I have read through the comments here and had an idea that I didn't see mentioned. I would try it myself, but I haven't actually seen the kit spawn.
Anyway, if you read the description of the
, it says that you "Shine someone's shoes". I read this to mean that you aren't shining your own shoes. That with this toy, you would target someone and use the toy to shine their shoes. Thus, I would have one player sit in the chair and another player try to use the kit while the first player is targeted.
The other npc in that room talk from time to time
Gnolie says: This one is a disaster. I want the Gnomish piece downstairs!
Caeli says: Ok. ok... but you're buying brunch
Something I've noticed while he's en route to the Inn, he passes over a sewer grate. I started thinking about all the washed up items in the Underbelly I had seen while farming the Assassination Rogue and Elemental Shaman hidden artifact appearances. Might his key be somewhere down there as soon as he passes over the grate? I scoured the underbelly on his trip TO the inn, but didn't have the patience for his return trip, as it's a few hours later I believe. I also checked the various NPCs down there to see if they were selling off his key but was unable to find anything.
Welp 7.2 has come out and I still cant figure out anyway to open his chest still says you cant open that when clicking it.
Archmage Khadgar says: We were having quite a time finding volunteers brave enough to enter that nest of evil. If you need a new pair of shoes after wading through those webs, I have a connection in Dalaran that can offer you a discount!
after the world quest arachnicide in the broken shore
I noticed the chest being up around 00:30 server time, Sheddle was already drinking his sorrows away in the bar. After spending a rough hour searching for a key in the sewers, without luck, I thought of another approach not yet mentioned here: sit in his chair and wait until he arrives. Maybe trigger some kind of 'apology' from Sheddle where he will think I've been waiting for a polish the last couple of hours while he got drunk.
I sat my plated bottom down at 1:45 and patiently waited for either the chest to despawn or our gnomish friend to return.
I'm sad to say this also didn't lead anywhere, the chest despawned at exactly 02:00, whereas Sheddle could still be found drinking. I could still try sitting in his chair before he departs, maybe he will forget to lock the chest that way.
It took me two weeks to be there in time, at 0:00, but I managed to sit in his chair a few minutes before that. Repeatedly getting my shoes shined, Sheddle still took off at the second the clock ticked 0:00, in the middle of a polish. Curiously, the chest spawned on his location, slightly different from its usual spawn location (see
It's probably another dead end, as clicking it still gives the 'You can't open that.' error, even with a fresh
buff. But I'm open to suggestions.
Time well wasted, thanks Blizzard.
I'd like to suggest that the process for getting the kit may have to do with Saturday Night Live since that's when Sheddle leaves and the show starts at approximately 11;30 PM to 1 AM..
Theres also a promotional clip with Jonah Hill where he's getting his shoes shined for SNL.
One part of the clip shows him wearing orange crocs...so maybe we need to be wearing a legendary boots or get boots with the name "croc" in it?
Anyone have any other ideas?
In patch 7.2.5 the
Shoe Shine Kit
toy is finally obtainable from the
You can find
in the upper level of Photonic Playground: /way 44.8 47.3
EU: The chest spawns Saturday night to Sunday morning at midnight CET (Server Time)
US: The chest spawns Saturday night to Sunday morning at midnight PST
Sheddle just drops the chest on the ground and then goes to the Legerdemain Lounge to drink for about 2 to 4 hours.
will be up for about 2 hours and everyone can get the toy, you don't need to be there at midnight.
The inspiration for this toy came from Wrath Dalaran - if you sit in the chair next to
, he will also shine your shoes and give you
Get the cool~
Get the cool shoe shine~
spawns Saturday night to Sunday morning at 00:00 Server Time, so June 17-18 is the first time to attempt to get the toy.
Its past midnight Saturday realm time on Australian servers and the toy has not spawned, was there 10 mins before and its now almost 10 mins after, with nothing spawned. Not sure if its midnight realm time or midnight PST for everyone.
Chest containing this toy spawned at exactly 00:00 server (europe) time. All players present (3 horde, 1 alliance) could loot the toy and learn it. Likely the box functions like all new legion chests - everyone can loot it within a certain timeframe, before it despawns (if it does ?).
Just did this on live and got it! but more interesting me and the other person opened at the same time and both got it so if timed correctly two people can loot maybe more?
Just looted it on live on Moonglade EU, multiple people were able to loot the same chest. Very glad it's no longer a race
seems its not a 1 player per week onley multible players can click the chest to get the toy :)
We were able to loot this with multiple people just few min ago, so it doesnt seem 1 person only. Good news :D
So, after first batch of chests spawned i can confirm that more than one person can loot. Between 4-5 people that i camped with, me and paladin got it. I cannot say if the rest was simply afk and missed the chance or they were too slow. Chest despawns very quickly after looting.
The chest was at least for 30 seconds there. As others already have confirmed - every player was able to loot the Toy, no matter what faction they were...
Good thing :)
So many griefers, FFS. Why do people have to be such A-holes.... blizz should just make stuff like this have barriers so people cant stand on them or drops toys and stuff on them.. It's ridiculous!
-- So sitting here and its not 3 past midnight and he hasnt left yet........ and people keep sitting in the chair getting shines, and dropping toys and guild chests where the item spawns..
-- logged over to argent dawn where it's 1am sever, and he's still standing there too.
wondering if this was just switched to midnight PST? or if they are all like broken for NA realms?
It's finally midnight PST and there he goes. --- still jerks dumping things ontop of it tho.
Blizzard GM's are watching all of us drool in anticipation of this toy, saying.. "We've trolled 'em this time, best troll ever!"
It spawns at midnight. PST for NA servers and CEST for EU servers.
Notice that it is NOT realm's midnight!
It can be gotten it spawns saturday/sunday at midnight real PST time
At 3 AM server time it finally spawned. A bunch of people got the toy, and Sheddle was greeted by many /rudes and /spits on his way to the bar for making lots of angry players wait.
I just got this. Camped for an hour or more, spawned at 3am server time (possibly midnight PST as I am on EST) and stayed up for about 5 seconds (maybe more but it wasn't long, long enough to click and loot and it was pretty much gone after that). There were 3-4 others there and they all could loot as far as I know. Doesn't spawn for long, camp it or get very, very lucky. Supposedly every 2 hours but maybe that's based on PST so EST would be odd hours not even.
This spawned at 5pm on Sunday for me on Oceanic (Dath'Remar)
Now go home and get ya @#$%ing shine box!
Just did this last night (july 30/2017). There was 2 of us waiting for the box to spawn, I clicked on it, got the toy, and the box immediately despawned. So I question whether the box is available for 2 hours. In my experience, the box despawned immediately after looting.
For anyone like me who was there from 12:00 midnight until 12:25 wondering why Seddle would NOT leave - I had to join a Margoss Fishing group to phase out, he disappeared and the chest was where he was. No idea why it was stuck, time was correct, but if anyone else has that issue, try looking for a fishing group to join. Hope that helps!
jesus christ im always forgeting about it
This can be used on yourself, other players, and even NPCs, I used it on a guy that was AFK in highmountain while doing world quests, then used it on the flight master later. Before leaving for my WQ run I used it on myself after getting it. The buff is removed after taking any form of damage what so ever, even falling. But if you want manduin to have some shiny shoes now he can.
, as per today 24 December 2017, the chest spawned at 7pm "Oceanic realm" time - so adjust it to your own time and don't forget the DST. The chest will disappear once you looted it, but it will still be visible for others who haven't loot it (multiple people can loot the chest).
Still available. I got mine tonight 3-11-18 At 12:00 am PST (3am EST) I went to dal Broken Shores. He was still upstairs.
After a few minutes I went to DAL northrend. Same. didn't leave. I read some comments trying to see if anyone eles
found him leave later and I just went back to Broken shore Dal 12:20 am pst (3:20 est.) He was gone and chest was there and lootable.
I got my shoe shine kit.
BTW if you take damage you lose the buff so careful jumping down if you want it to last or wait 10 mins later and you can
use it on yourself.
Picked this toy up today (Saturday night/Sunday Morning) at approximately 11:45pm GMT time. Can confirm that it can be looted by more than one person, I made those around Dalaran aware that the chest was there, so as many people as possible could loot toy.
For the Aussies out there, it spawns on Sunday 5:00pm AEST/Melbourne time/Dath'Remar Server time and it stays around for 2 hours. It is currently not daylight savings time at the moment so adjust for that too.
I had an alt on one account parked in Dalaran-Northrend and an alt on another account parked in Dalaran-Legion both by the NPC. At 3:am ET, the NPC in Dalaran-Northrend did nothing, for 15 mins I waited.
At 3:00 am ET, the NPC in Dalaran-Legion dropped the chest and went to the bar as described.
As far as my observations go, if you go to Dalaran-Northrend, you are wasting your time, go to Dalaran-Legion instead.
