I really like that this island is not a daily grind, but a place that promotes exploration - and in some cases, lore - in order to earn your rewards. You can also grind if you want, but by the looks of it, blizz has encouraged way more interesting, rewarding, and fun ways to get your rewards. I have to wonder if pet battle tournament winners will also earn timeless coins and how many? And, will there be an option for a PvP pet battle tournament?. I also like the lore quiz idea, it might cause some people to read up on their lore to either find the answers, or just out of interest. Although I wish there was a better way to implement lore, this is still a great idea. On top of everything covered here along with the 5 world bosses, this island seems like it'll be the pinnacle of what WoW used to be in the older days: Exploration, fun events, world bosses, and an overall enjoyable experience with others. I can't wait for this patch to release! :D
I'm very excited about this new island. It's great that Blizz finaly noticed ppl are tired of dailes. I love to explore so it will be right place for me :) Also opening random chests seams a lot of fun - you never know what u gonna get, and curiosity is smthg that drives me on :)
Where is the lore daily? I've looked all over the island on the PTR and I can't seem to find it.
Great more content to bore us to death, i should probably just cancel my subscription if this is the content they are going to release. feel like this is poke-wow

This will definitely keep me busy for a while.It better does. Because this is the last patch of the expansion, and it needs to be juicy to keep us busy while the next one is on the way.It's not the last patch. http://wow.joystiq.com/2013/07/17/possible-hint-to-the-next-patch/That doesn't really confirm anything; they could have been talking about the pre-expansion patch after all.That's the point, a pre-expansion patch is before the expansion, so there will be a 5.5, think Ruby sanctum in Wotlk or Sunwell in BC
That's the point, a pre-expansion patch is before the expansion, so there will be a 5.5, think Ruby sanctum in Wotlk or Sunwell in BCSunwell was not a Pre-expansion patch; it was the wrap up to the BC since Black Temple was so bleh. And all RS did was show a brief hint of the Twilight Dragons, and nothing else.
This area's introduction with a NPC called Lara, a ticking box, and a strange timepiece is a very obvious reference to the first Tomb Raider movie where Lara Croft finds a magical clock inside an old ticking box, thus beginning her quest to find an ancient triangle with the power to control time itself.
Where is the lore daily? I've looked all over the island on the PTR and I can't seem to find it.I thought it was easy to find. I found it several times when I first arrived with my Ret Pally. Every time I died, the Spirit Healer dropped me right at it's feet.
don't get it... "... without doing dailies."Meaning it's just endless killing of mobs around?
oh boy more dailies zzzzzzzzz......There's hardly any daily quests, just one-- A Timeless Question--in which you answer questions about Azeroth's lore.._.Hmm, there are two daily quests. The other is the one to kill 20 elites, giving you 1000 coins.
