Dropped by Ai-Ran the Shifting Cloud (a rare elite in Vale of Eternal Blossom)
A bit of a weird one. Gives you a 10 minute buff, when you jump it pushes you about 5 yards further through the air.
I'm sure someone will find a fun use for it.
work in pvp. Error 'You are in the wrong zone'
The buff is removed when you take damage, including fall damage.

This is bugged in the latest build. It pushes you down instead of forward.
does it work in combat ? does getting hit by "anything" removes the buff ? and does it work inside raid/dungeon instances ?
I can see some very special uses here, kekekeke ~
Working as of 5.0.5, just got it off the rarespawn. Confirming it does remove the buff if engaged in combat.
I just got it today is really nice...
The buff's spell effect looks like small eddies of wind swirling around your feet. As you run the white windy swirls will trail behind you.
I have uncovered the true purpose of this item! It makes untangling plants in your farm MUCH easier!
The embodiment of
Jinho the Wind Breaker
UNLEASH a gentle BREEZE, huh? Yet another ahem-joke by Blizzard, it would seem!
Another good use for this item:
. Makes getting to the drop site quick when he throws it in an unexpected direction.
While the buff is active, when you jump it propels you forward slightly. An interesting note of it, it won't allow you to propel off a ledge, at least not where I've tested it so far.
The Torch of Strength
The push when you jump can glitch you through thin walls. I used it in Shrine of the Seven Stars on the stairway and ended up below the Mogu statue, behind the invisible walls.
If you hold your strafe key (left or right) and jump while this is active, you will notice that it turns your character, changing what is considered "forward."
jump at surface of water... just about as fast as being mounted on waterwalking mount... best use of this item i've found so far
Just a note: it DOES break on falling damage... Oddly enough, it doesn't provide a slowfall. Ah well.
I'm starting to doubt whether this item drops still or not. I have killed this guy like 20 times now and considering he's the hardest rare in pandaria (imo) plus being ganked all the time I am starting to hate this..
Since 5.1 the effect of this item
breaks when taking damage :)
I can't believe no one's mentioned this, but this item allows you to move completely uninhibited by snares since the forward boost in not affected. Also, the movement generated by jumping is considerably faster than regular run speed. If you're a jump spammer in pvp, this makes you into a mobility god for 10 minutes every hour! (In Pandaria, of course.)
Looks like the zone restriction is being removed with 5.2. Sweet.
I want to add with the 5.2 quest (
Manipulating the Saurok
) that turns you into a Saurok (
) makes you jump high. But with this item enabled, you "super" jump, higher and farther! Makes traveling in the unmountable form easier
Currently work in Throne of Thunder, which I found quite useful during the first fight
and it also work in the new single player scenario where you have 5min to loot as much as possible.. even more useful here
Another excellent use for this item is to use it during the encounter in Siege of Niuzao Temple. Since EoB debuffs on damage I used it right before he flew to the other side of the platform and initiated the annoying wind phase making it super easy for me to get over there and finish the jerbb :D
ALSO it is EXTREMELY helpful in the water, mostly when jumping above the water.
I thought this would be useful for
Troves of the Thunder King
Helps for the floor traps but completely messes up when trying to maneuver around obstacles such as crates and fences/barriers to get to the alcoves or onto higher ground etc...
I have been reported for cheating yesterday using this in a battleground while holding the flag :-)
Catch me if you can!
This sounds kind of lame but the best use I've discovered so far for this is getting unstuck when you fall in a little hole or ditch or between objects and you can't jump out. The little boost it gives allows you to get over the lip of holes.
It's completely awful any time you need to jump on top of a box or climb something. You just end up flopping around near the box wasting time - for example in the Trove of the Thunder King loot run. Thought it would be awesome to speed up my run :(
I don't mean to break anybodies bubble.. But since the removal of the pandaria requirement, this item is god-like.
I'm sure this will be hotfixed..
I hope not though (:
From an innocent vanity item, this has become one of the best tools to any situation (outside PvP) that requires moving fast.
As a melee DPS you'll literally laugh at Elegon when you need your stacks off.
Don't try this en Elegon, it seems to work backwards on his platform. Other bosses are okay though.
Watch your fellow mages, druids & rogues trying to outrun you when you're hopping behind them until you catch up.
It also is useful in large boring no-mount zones that will need you to get back to the entrance anyway. Old raids, rep-farming dungeons, etc.
Sure it has a long cooldown, but when used at the right time, you can draw the best out of this little baby.
March 21 hotfixes:
- Essence of the Breeze should now only usable while on the continent of Pandaria.
For those of you who used this item in BGs for flag carrying.... IT HAS BEEN NERFED!..... You will still be able to use it in bgs but the jumping effects will no longer apply... Tested by Iceicebabye - Firetree
As of patch 5.2, this item seems to no longer give the little speed buff when jumping. Not sure if this is as intended, but when I use the item now, it only makes my jumps look fancy. Can someone confirm this?
With this item anyone Can become a windwalker.
Essence of the Breeze
can shoot you straight up in the air when used with the
) Klaxxi Augmentation xD
Found two uses so far after finding the drop tonight. One: seems like you move faster when bunny-hopping around. If you your jumps right that is. Two: for those times when you have to move through the water. If you skim the surface and jump it's a lot faster than normal swimming.
Holding down (walk backwards) and jumping with this active will quickly turn you around (180 degrees) and then jump (much like pressing down + x in RE 4 (only comparison i can think of).
The irony of this (for me at least) is that i always wanted some kind of "quick 180 turn" button, now I'm used to the game a bit more, i don't think this item will save a lot of time (having to activate it, then press two keys in combo that are never usually used together), and that it only lasts 10 mins for an hour CD!
I just used this to bypass the cave in on timeless isle by hopping right through the rocks and picking up the hammer.
This item also allows very fast travel through water. With the buff it grants you can keep up with Evermaw by continually jumping out of the water.
The buff also comes in handy for getting away from
s on Timeless Isle when they have the
buff active, which can do quite a bit of damage if you're undergeared.
This item is fun to use when you just wanna run around Pandaria. If you time it right, you can almost jump around as fast as a 100% speed ground mount.
This works when jumping from water, making it very effective when you're trying to keep up with Evermaw from the Timeless Isle.
I'm surprised no-one has mentioned the fart joke in the tooltip...
Maybe it's just me being immature but alas I did break a smile when I first noticed the tooltip.
Ninja nerfed on patch 5.4.2. It does NOTHING now other than leaving a particle effect in your wake. How lame.
just hold down jump and you will travel SO fast in the water when you have this.
It does not buf anything. It just makes an automatic "forward" when jumping.
I'm surprised the top comments haven't picked up this.
(i.e. it's exactly the same if you pressed forward)
I think i now know what this item is for! if you back pedel and jump you do a 180!
just found this item, sort of odd, but ill enjoy playing with it for fun when hanging out, plus the un tangling plants is a bonus
Horrible buff for a hunter. Completely cancels out all jump shots and counters disengage. Worst item ever.
This item is not required for the achievement
Going To Need A Bigger Bag
This item makes a player move really fast through the use of jumping. It will actually allow you to ignore snares. Ignoring snares can come in handy for World PvP in Pandaria. I tested it in a duel against a hunter and it worked fine for moving around while snared. The only thing you should keep in mind is that you'll keep moving forward until you land, so you can jump past a target as a melee if you aren't careful.
The jump works while mounted. If a player snares you while mounted you can jump away.
With this item, anyone can become a windwalker!
This is listed in the toy box gallery, but it's not a toy. It was on the PTR, and it really should be, but for some reason it's status was set to a normal item prior to the 6.0.2 patch.
There seems to be a bug with
Essence of the Breeze
. It's listed in the Toys Panel as a Toy yet, I've checked with so many and confirmed that the item does not have a Toy status set to it, nor did it get recognized by the Toys Panel.
I think Blizzard will eventually update this as it's clearly a toy and not a trinket.
Help raise this issue to Blizzard, to save bag space and always have the item accessible from anywhere.
This item is useful in archaeology, when light is green or yellow. It's too close for mount , too far by foot, but just perfect for Essence of the Breeze.
This should definitely be a toy.
This item is scheduled to be a
