Short John Mithril yells: Arrr, Me Hearties! I be havin' some extra Treasure that i be givin' away at the Gurubashi Arena! All ye need to do is collect it is open the chest I leave on the arena floor!
the chest spawns every three hours, with the first spawn of the day at 12 AM server time, with the subsequent spawns at 3 AM, then 6 AM, 9 AM, 12 PM, 3 PM, 6 PM, and 9 PM.
Short John Mithril
Long John Silver
coincidence? I don't think so :)
Ah, hits the spot!
This is just a random guess but i think he is yelling about Goblin Gumbo Kettle
as you know Booty Bay is the place to redeem your world of warcraft cards
almost wanted to report him to a GM for spamming today during the fishing tourney, I blame him for distracting me from being master angler.
5 months later, I finally won :D
chose the trinket!
2 weeks later I won again! :O
chose the pole!
Around what time each hour can i expect him to call out the chest spawn?
I'm not sure about the despawn time of the chest. I showed up at 09:23 today, and the chest was still there. My guess is 25 minutes, half an hour maximum, but I can't confirm this.
he placed the chest at 17:05 on Grim Batol server today... must be the bug

Good luck with having to do this 12 times :)
Twinkers often get high lvs to come kill everyone else so that they would get the trinket. in a big server you need to brink a 80 or 2 to get it:/
times are 3am 6am 9am 12pm 3pm 6pm 9pm and 12am
Short John Mithril
does not begin his walk at the :00 mark every 3 hours. In fact, it seems to be somewhat random (again I'm surprised nobody else has made note of this), switching between :57 and :59. So basically, you'll want to get there a little early. As mentioned already, it takes Short John about 2 minutes to do his walk before dropping the chest. Sometimes starting at :57, I've seen him drop it at :59. Don't be one of the late level 80's, who come charging in at the :01 minute to compete for the trinket, to find that it has already been looted by someone (like me) who came early and was ready.
For reference, there are more tips and suggestions in the
comments concerning obtaining the trinket.
Does anyone know if the chest disappears after a certain amount of time?
He'll drop the chest once every three hours, on the hour, starting at midnight server time.
To get the chest, you have to be the first player to get to it. There are no NPCs that try to stop you, but once you drop down into the arena, you are automatically flagged for free-for-all PvP; anybody from either faction can attack you (and you them once they step in or attack you). The goal is to defeat any other players also trying to get to the chest. If you're lucky and/or on a low population server, there might not be anyone else trying to get the chest, in which case you've got it easy.
I was STV minding my own business walking to BB to begin my grind to Bloodsail Admiral, when I hear Short John Mithril yell about the chest. It was pretty late/early, so out of curiosity, I ran over to the Arena.
I see the guy running back into the stands and I opened the chest to find the Arena trinket, and I get an achievement in my face!
This is what started me researching the chest and learning the times and converting them to my time so I can get the Grand Master achievement. It doesn't seem hard, you just gotta be quick about it.
Happy hunting to all!
this NPC is a parody off Long John Silver. however, he does drop a chest in the floor of the Gurubashi Arena in Stranglethorn Vale. ive never seen anything above lvl 45 (plate bracers). there was a blacksmithing plan for skill level 300 once. the Arena Master trinket is the object of a quest, but you get to keep it. the trinket gives +5 Stamina, and once you get 12 of them there is a daily quest for them, but im not sure if you keep them. they sell for just over one gold. the Arena Master is a 100% drop from the chest. the chest always drups at least 50 silver, and usually good gear. the gear that ive seen is specialized towards a certain class. such as plate for pallys and warriors, i saw a which added a lot of arcane spell power. anyways. i belive that i am drawling on, so to make it short; everyone benefits from getting the chest. lo-lvl: benefits from the $$$. 38-50 benefits from the gear. 80's benefit from the $$$ and the proffesion plans. its a win-win-win
he yells "let the bloodletting begin!" once he actually puts down the chest
Imortant! Make sure the clock on your mini map is set to server time NOT real time.
what does the chest drop? anything specific?
I just came at 12:00 AM ST on Drak'thul server and noticed that for some reason short john mithril, as well as that other npc who gives the daily to duel yourself, are nowhere to be found. I didn't see anything about his removal in the patch notes so hopefully this is just a bug and will be fixed soon
It seems u must have to do some sort of prequest to see him as myself an another player were there at the same time. I was able to see the chest and claim it but ther other player wasn't. I was on my 32 druid questing in STV he was an 85 player. Sudgested maybe u need to do the Zg quests first.
Haha I must have just gotten really lucky... I was just hanging out in Booty Bay when I saw this guy yell about setting out the treasure. I flew over there and nothing was there (didn't know you had to wait 2 minutes). Checked back in about 10 minutes and there it was! Just waiting for me to collect it!
Didn't know this guy existed!
I was doing the Gurubashi Arena daily, when a DK flew over. Strange, since my server (Burning Steppes) is quite empty and I hardly ever meet any Horde when travelling through the Eastern Kingdoms. I just flew away but heared the scream of Short John Mithril and went back to the arena. And there he was, a Goblin frost DK, 159k health, just waiting on the arena floor. No idea what was going to happen, I landed next to him and emoted "?". One minute later the chest spawned, the DK attacked me, and I didn't know what was going on. I did try to open the chest, but it takes a LONG time. So a stun didn't really do the trick...
Still, I gave the guy quite a fight for a Prot Pally. Had full season 10 gear on, but of course my offence just sucks, so he was just notching away at me. My bubble was on cooldown, else I would have made a "bubbleheart" (you know what I'm talking about Cata Pally's!), since there was no point to the fight and no guildies where online to help me out. And still no idea what was going on...
In short, I died twice and he got the chest. The items inside are pretty useless, but I want the achievement! So next time, I'll be ready...
I arrived there 05:55 real time, been here till now 06:10 and still no chest. I can see the npc's and all so im not zoned out. Any ideas?
Short John Mithril will normally do his call-out at 00:00, 03:00, 06:00, 09:00, 12:00, 15:00, and 18:00 server time. However, because of the fact that the Gurubashi Arena Booty Run is set every three hours instead of at certain times (the server does not check the time, it simply counts out 3 hours), during Daylight Savings Time, the chest will not spawn at the normal time, but either an hour later or an hour earlier than usual, until the following Tuesday when maintenance is performed and servers are restarted.
Taken from WoWPedia.
he spawns the chest at 10 am realm time also almost no one knows that but it happened to me just 2 hours ago :)
Twice in the past day (midnight and midday) I have logged in to go after the chest but it's not spawning. Any idea if it's bugged or something? My clock says it's noon realm time but maybe DLS is messing with it? Mithril never moved from 11:59-12:08 :-/
EDIT: Confirmed. He dropped the chest at 1:00p server.
The Arena Master Trinket does not stack, just FYI.
It is worth noting that by the time he has slowly walked all the way around the arena and placed the chest in the centre, it is 2 minutes past the top of the hour.
Great if you are running late, infuriating if you are the only one camping it!
Now this has the added difficulty or cross-realm zones/zoning.
I never get this. What's up with all those lame level 90's waiting to be released by good old John Mithril. Is there something to earn by high level 90 fully equipped epic morons? Its cool when level 30's are battling for the chest. But i never could lay my finger on why the heck level 90's are motivated to even come up here in a low, low questing area.
Anyone looking to grab the chest, good luck. With all the connected realm bullcrap, it's near impossible without a ton of help. Instead of seeing the maybe 3-4 other people who might want it on your server, you see 15-30 other people from several servers trying to get it. I seen more people at the Gurubashi arena at 9A this morning, just after a server reset, than I've seen in any 1 zone in Draenor. Used to be a time you didn't have to hire entire guilds to come help you loot a chest.
So the trinket is going to become an heirloom at some point, yes?
