WoW Hardcore Casual's (MoP 5.4) - Dread Wastes Rare Spawns and Treasure Farming Guide

Why should I farm them?
First things first, why should you farm rare spawns and treasures?
The answer is easy of course: Loots and experience!
Most treasures in the Dread Wastes are BoA level 86 gear with an ilvl of 450, meaning you can chant them with deadly steel or jade spirit and reuse them on all your alts. Also, each item gives you a hefty chunk of exp: 700,000 exp rested. If you manage to get all the treasures in Pandaria, it should add up to more than an entire level for doing nothing other than looting off the ground!
The rare spawns in the dread wastes have a chance of dropping unique vanity items as well as ilvl 440-450 chest armor of all types. Giving you yet another boost on the gear curve to help grind out those last 5 levels!
Where do I farm them?
Following the two tables below and jumping over to wowhead guides for more information, you should be able to easily find the treasures in pandaria! I highly recommend you do this with a level 90 friend who has a 2 seater flying mount, or if you've been a smart player and RAFed yourself, you can do it all by your lonesome.

Notes: regarding the Blood Soaked Chitin Fragment trinket, you have to dive underwater into a cave just off the shore! It's on the right hand side of the cave near a pack of 3-4 mobs. This was the only difficult one for me to find. The rest are either in bushes or simply sitting on the ground in plain sight.

After completing the Dread Wastes rares and treasures, I highly recommend moving to Townlong Steppes for more goodies!
Good luck and happy hunting!
