There is a mob in Kun'Lai Summit named Ski'thik that has a 16% chance to drop an item called Rod of Ambershaping.
It's tooltip reads like this;
As you can see, these guys are WAY ahead of the rest of the curve. I believe their last pull + the fact that they save warp for gekkan is what made their game, and the useage of Rod of Ambershaping. The also reduced the first and last pulls to one big pull on each end of the instance.Rod of Ambershaping
