Eh, it's ok.
The puzzles were fun the first time. But after noticing the chests were a one time thing (or so it seems right now) it already lost its touch. The isle already lost its touch after one day for me. The only "OK" thing about it is being able to gank everyone. But even then, everyone will just jump on you when you show yourself.
I'm not a fan of it. It's just a gigantic grind on PvE Servers.
With dailies at least i have a specific task, here it's just "Well i can farm respawns for 30 more minutes or i can go and play something fun instead".
It's like playing a MMO from 10 years ago. Riding in a horse-cart can be fun once in a while but i prefer a car every single day.
Most Chests are visible once then never again , only a few remain as daily repops , weekly . Burden of eternity got nerfed in the latest hotfix and most mobs can not be solo'ed by some ie. if you have 400k HP you will have to out dps the giant snakes cause its bite does over 100k per hit .
Now I like the island to form groups and kill rares and elites do some coin farming but really there is nothing my main needs from there anymore and once you get to the point not needing 496 gear or 535 gear there will be no point and I believe the isles lifespan will be cut short within the first month did to the majority getting what they want and the isle only offering a small amount of content

Not a fan so far, but that's because it is so few people around yet. Will be better when they turn on connected realms hopefully.
I personally love the Timeless Isle, it is really entertaining!

It's a hell of a lot better than dailies in my opinion, but I feel that it's just too small with not enough to do after you've done the small handful of exploration areas.

Timeless Isle is my least favourite of all the Guild Wars 2 zones I've played through for some reason there aren't any Dynamic Events too?
