I have now found all four of these- two of them require hopping on an Albatross to get to(One is on the large cliff next to the Horde camp, marked on the map by an illustraion of a mountain, the second one is on top of another of these illustrated mountains, next to Tushi landing),
To hop an albatross, wait north of Mossgreen lake, when you see an albatross, hit him with a single spell(NOT a DoT). He will swoop down and grab you, and begin flying you around the island in a circuit. When you are over the chest, hit him with another spell to stop his movement, he will land immediately below you and you will have to kill him. Wait on the pillar for another albatross to come by, and ride it away to victory.
Edit: The third chest is found in the "Mysterious Den" which is normally closed off due to a cave in. If a player has the "rock breaking hammer" buff (From a hammer found in the den) they can shatter the rocks and in theory there will be a rarespawn in there, as well. The mysterious den is one of the three clustered caves on the map(The furthest east).
Edit of Edit: Fourth chest can be found on the eastert of the island(East by southeast) near the frogs, on the map it is to the southside of the little plataeu where two bridges connect).
anyone who has an ability to slow their fall will be able to reach these tops by flying in on a flying mount and aiming for it. as a mage, I was able to slowfall and debuff slowfall until I got the trajectory right.
one is located @ 64 70 on the isle
As a mage got this with slowfall, take the flight back to Dawn Blossom or swim/Water Strider out until you get exhaustion and then get on flying mount, fly toward it, you can get fairly close before auto dismount.
/cancelaura slow fall
Hit safe fall when you lose mount, then hit the aura to adjust and recast as needed, much easier than relying on your server peers to not be stupid with albratross, or cloak procs, or ignite procs, etc.
Does the albatross ride remind anyone else of the sandcrawler ride to get a holocron from SW:TOR? The trip isn't as long, but it's certainly as boring.
The albatrosses tour the whole island, takes about 5 minutes to do so. Don't make the same mistake i made by being afk and doing the tour twice :P
Hunters be aware that the Albatross can and will take your pet instead of you.

I was going for the chest on the peak near the horde camp flying with a
While attacking the albatross to get it to drop me another albatross joined in the fight and before I could get dropped it grabbed me from the first bird and flew away. Had to go another full lap around the island to get another attempt to get down.
Bad bird! Bad, bad bird!
I actually now recommend grabbing the "Wholly" and "Grail" addons, as these will mark the map with "!" marks at chest locations.

I can't finish the 4th chest. I got the two high up. But the one in the cave and one at the frogs never spawns. How am I going to finish this?
a warning to fellow feral druids, the albatross wont let you shapeshift to catform.
I noticed the Sturdy Chest appearing on my minimap as I was in air just after being picked up on my Albatross. The Sturdy Chest was on that high mesa between the pathway on the west of the Celestials (but before the Alliance landing). I never noticed that icon on my minimap before. It looks to be an overlay addon, because it shows skulls (small and large) where bosses are, and it shows the Crane statue and other points of interest.
No other Sturdy Chest has appeared on my minimap.
Today I used the hammer to find another chest and was shocked to see it there, given it never showed on the minimap. I'm almost 100% sure I would have seen a Sturdy Chest on the ground, such as where the frogs are. That would put me at 3/4. I have no idea where the fourth is.
It's a little confusing to me that some Sturdy Chests are visible and some aren't. But I haven't flown the entire circuit yet. Maybe, instead of killing the Albatross by the red pond where Garnia spawns I will keep flying around and see one near the horde camp.
ETA: The 4/4 Sturdy Chest was at the mesa by the horde camp, and NO I DID NOT see it on my minimap but it was there. If you need a 4th and you're not sure you could check too.
Make sure when you drop you drop CLOSE to the chest because when i dropped from the albatross i died.
