The lost treasures hidden throughout Pandaria are items of great value, found in containers and NPCs throughout Pandaria (usually of the same name). Obtaining them is the objective of a series of achievements. There are 28 known containers/NPCs that contain lost treasures, although some of these will provide one of a number of possible items. Almost all lost treasures are rare gear items, while a few are other useful items such as recipes.
The treasures of Pandaria are very similar, but count toward a separate set of achievements. Rather than providing a powerful item, many treasures grant poor quality items (most with sell prices of around 100), while others simply grant gold upon interacting with them. Interacting with these treasures also grants a substantial amount of experience, which can be increased by the rested bonus and Guild Battle Standards. While some of these treasures have entertaining flavor text, none serve any purpose.
There are also a number of others items found throughout Pandaria that function very similarly to treasures, but which do not count toward either set of achievements.
Each container (be it for a lost treasure, treasure or similar item) can be looted/interacted with only once per character. The containers themselves are not character-specific and will periodically respawn, but characters who have already gained credit for them will not be able to see them. All lost treasure and treasure items are either bind on pickup or bind to account.
Although it is possible to find the same treasures on multiple characters, these achievements require the stated number of different treasures to have been found. Finding the same treasure multiple times will not therefore help to earn these achievements.
