As one of the many Lost Treasures hidden around Pandaria, this is an interesting item as it has five different spawn spots all within Paoquan Hollow in the north-western part of Valley of the Four Winds. I’ve been lucky enough to spot this item twice. Once on my Hunter while questing in the area and then later on Cymre while pet battling.
As a rule of thumb, you can only see these items once on each toon (just like the relics used for the Riches of Pandaria) series.
When I saw this second staff, I noticed that Navi was on so I asked if she was interested but she wasn’t sure if she had picked it up already. It turned out she couldn’t see it because she had it already. Shame, since I was hoping to use it as a Winter Veil gift but oh well.
Now if you use some kind of addon that tracks co-ordinates (I use TitanPanel), you can use these to pinpoint the spawn spots.

I was excited to see some new achievements when I logged in today. I knew 5.1 was bringing a lot of nifty things but I didn’t realise we were getting achievements for the treasures that didn’t count towards the Lost and Found series.
These are such a great source of XP and money especially while levelling my alts. The hardest one would have to be the sap in Townlong Steppes since it can spawn in several spots around the huge tree. One spot in particular is too high to get to without flying.
So I logged in to find Treasure of Pandaria, Fortune of Pandaria and Bounty of Pandaria complete leaving me with ONE treasure left to find. I suspected that I knew the item concerned as I only found out about the artifact once I had quested through the Jade Forest – a heavily phased area. So I headed over there just in case something had changed. I thought maybe I could fly in fast and click on the item before it phased out (like it had done before). I flew down and immediately noticed something different about the Ancient Pandaren Tea Pot. It was definitely bigger and a different design. Could it be… was it now lootable?
Woot! Another treasure series now complete with Riches of Pandaria!
I’ve been searching for this staff since the beta as it was one of the few lost treasures I really wanted to find. Tonight my search was finally over. Feeling somewhat lucky after taming Savage yesterday, I thought I’d do some questing in the Valley. It wasn’t long before the quests led me to the Hidden Master so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to check all the spawn spots for this lost treasure.
I was only familiar with a couple of the spots having seen some of the screenshots on WoWHead. With the quests I picked up, I took my time checking each set of co-ordinates staying in the area for about two hours – killing multiple mobs, collecting eggs and finishing my trials.
After completing the chain, I decided to check each spawn spot one last time so I started killing the beasts around the first set of trees. Knowing I was on the wrong side of the tree, I hovered my mouse around the base and couldn’t believe my eyes. I saw the ‘Staff of the Hidden Master‘ text come up. CRAP! I had to kill these things quick!
So I killed the handful of mobs while manoeuvring myself around the area in an attempt to take a pic of the staff sticking out of the tree before someone came along and grabbed it before I could. Luckily, no one did.
Now all I need is a staff to mog :)
