Xuen's Lightning is also hitting for 110k a second from 40+ yards away to all people even if you haven't hit him.

His Shadow crash hits for 500k

Chi-ji's targeting circle is twice the size of what it is supposed to be.

You can pull all four of the world bosses well beyond the Square are (had one kited near the shore)

Note that the Timeless Isle is largely a self-directed experience, which diverges somewhat from our recent practice. You aren't going to find a hub of daily questgivers or NPCs who will assign you specific tasks to complete. There is a ton to do on the Timeless Isle, and countless secrets to discover, so go explore!

Are the bosses randomly spawn cause I haven't seen Yu'lon at all yet. Doesn't help that the horde take's forever to kill the boss they get.

The bosses feel very overtuned. AOEs ticking for 500k from 40 yards away every 2 seconds which is wiping A LOT of people even tanks who are popping CDs

Chi-Ji's light thing should be a bit larger than the 8 or so yards in diameter it is currently if you want all 40+ people attacking it on live to get in.

And I have to agree, it's cycling through Xuen, Niuzao, and Chi-Ji; skipping Yu'lon

There's a new thread specifically for feedback and discussion of the world bosses Chi-Ji, Niuzao, Xuen, and Yu'lon: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/9499700475

Please focus on non-world-boss feedback in the general Timeless Isle thread. Thanks!

Feedback, I'm assuming, means more than just game bugs? So I'll put in what I can see now.
A self propelled experience is nice, but upon arriving at the island, we have no indication as to what to do. I eventually realised that killing mobs dropped coins I could then buy things with, but for the most part, when someone sees a giant elite snake, they avoid it.

The rewards are lackluster at best, with the pets being the only real reason I can see someone putting the amount of time and effort needed into the island.

The legendary cloak only world boss is a neat idea, but we can't really test that right now anyway so it doesn't matter.

While this is more personal opinion then fact, I would have enjoyed something more tied to the actual events of the patch, rather then some "farewell to pandaria" that is barely connected with what we have done, other then all these characters showing up for no discernable reason.

The grinding for loot type of gameplay is pretty boring, and kind of lazy. While people complain about daily hubs all the time, something along the lines of 5.1 would be the best route to go, over something like this in the future.

It's currently bugged (as mentioned earlier in this thread). You need to die and then run to each of the locations while in ghost form.

It seemed, the coin drop rate was a little excessive along with the chests (which im guessing is mostly just due to the sheer amount of ppl. Would be nice if there were some random cosmetic treasures like the ones you could find on pandaria (even though most of those were weapons.)

Wouldnt hurt to have a couple lore walker scrolls scattered on the island to explain the story of the island.

One last suggestion even though i know it would be a lot of work on the artists but maybe have the gear be of new models or even some old ones for those who dont have alts to have a reason to get the gear.

wanted to mention that i like the lore daily on the island, wasnt expecting it

overall it just felt fun kind of worried though that i may have spoiled myslef. Theres also something about the island that feels missing but i dont know what it is

That ticking noise is an add-on error, in my UI it happened to be MSBT. Once I disabled it I have yet to have that happen again.

Back to feedback, currently the main issues I'm having is related to quests. First one is "A Timeless Tour" not checking complete on any of the locations, and after poping the "discovered x location" for all of them on the list, the quest does not flag complete. The second is "The Emperor's Way" not being able to get credit in a raid, when I would expect this content is designed to be done in a raid.

Will these "rare" mobs (silver dragon portrait) drop anything special aside from a larger-than-usual amount of coins? They seem extremely difficult (though all the mobs seem to be harder than usual difficulty), with particular reference to Cinderfall and Huolon.
