What's the respawn speed of Lost and Found treasure caches?



  • I'm currently looking to yoink a Blade of the Poisoned Mind from one of the several caches for the Lost and Found Achievement. However, I'm shooting in the dark in my camping as I don't know when it'll show up.

    The comments on Wowhead are of very little help, with some merely saying that it might have something to do with server restarts, and others discounting that possibility.

    What is the actual respawn window for Lost and Found treasures? A couple of hours? Days? Something else?



  • I bit the bullet and camped the Blade of the Poisoned Mind spawn point. Since there's only one data point, it's not a conclusive answer, but suffice it to say that the respawn time is looooooong.

    My camping journal:

    • Began camping immediately after Tuesday maintenance ended, starting at 11 am GMT-7.
    • Camped continuously until the servers restarted Wednesday morning at 5 am GMT-7. This may have reset the re-spawn timer.
    • Restarted camping at 6:20 am GMT-7 until ~2:45 am Thursday, when it finally spawned.

    So, given this, the respawn period is at least 20 hours (if the server restart reset the timer) or 35 hours (if it didn't).
