I had a character sit on one treasure spawn for 17 hours (and constantly watching it) and seen no spawn, whilst I looked around the other spawn points on my other account (2 lvl 90 separate accounts, same b.net- windowed so I can see both location)
Not one single spawn in over 5 freakin days... I have looked morning time (9am to 3pm), night time (from 8pm to 4.30am) spent hours and hours doing nothing but this (in game) and it is driving me crazy that I have not seen a single spawn. I am on a low-medium pop server so this makes no sense to me. I found the other 17 items in less time than I have been farming these last 3 and seen NOTHING... I mad. And something is not right.
Either the spawns are bugged, not working correctly or have a far too long a respawn. I have not been lucky enough to catch a server reset. Perhaps it's related to the ticket I opened? could a GM have triggered my completion for all items (i.e. the !flag quest completion)
I just want this to be over :( I did not think it would take so damn long.
Some clarification on spawn rates would be nice or maybe when server restarts happen... or whether this is bugged or not.
P.S. I've searched Google, Wowhead, everywhere for information, I have tom-tom for co-ords and arrows pointing out the exact locations, I have 9 treasures which I have not looted: 1. Swarmkeeper's Medallion, 2. Blade of the Prime, 3. Bloodsoaked Chitin Fragment, 4. Blade of the Poisoned Mind, 5. Amber Encased Necklace, 6. Malik's Stalwart Spear, 7. Wind-Reaver's Dagger of Quick Strikes 8. Glinting Rapana Whelk (have this I.D. on NPCScan) in Dread Wastes & 9. Staff of the Hidden Master in Valley of the Four Winds just over the wall. Not seen one of these in nearly a week of hardcore farming. Not one. That leads me to believe spawns in Dread wastes are not happening i.e. bugged. 17 hours+ with no spawn on any of these items is simply ridiculous.

Don't worry OP, most people don't even have 1 of those items, so it can always be worse.

It has brought me close to tears this achievement... I will not be beaten...
I read that the Dread wastes objects MIGHT share a spawn with each other (i.e. only 1 spawns at a time with a 13 hr+ respawn). If this is the case that REALLY sucks. I wish there was more clarification on these things.
Removed the <snip>
Well, and finally some achievement that takes a bit more effort!
Plus what is worse the most recent item I acquired was the "Ancient Pandaren Mining Pick" which did not grant me 18/20 which it should have. OF course I reported this bug and opened a ticket, but 18/20 was not granted only a generic response that they are aware of the issue and it will be fixed in an upcoming patch...
I share your pain here, i have looted Wodin's Mantid Shanker twice on two different characters and it didnt count, i should be at 19/20 but im still at 18/20 :(
1) sometimes you loot the container and don't get the item. If you ticket a GM they will send you the item in the mail.
2) the spawn times can be very long. don't expect to find them easily.
3) they do not spawn on server restart (or at least, not all of them do).
I have made a movie - myself looting all items.
You can have a look, see exactly where and what to look for.
Ah this was your movie? This helped me a lot, thanks :)
