  • Cannot be used in Dungeons, Fractals, Raids, WvW, PvP or guild mission instances.
  • As it is a gizmo, this item can be used more than once.
  • Double clicking this item equips a bundle that grants the skills Mark Location and Rewind (only with a marked location).
  • Rewind is available for 30 seconds after using Mark Location or until you use any form of teleport (like waypoints, shadowsteps or portals). The remaining time is indicated by the Position Rewinder effect.
  • Using Mark Location twice in a rapid succession will remove the saved location.
  • There does not seem to be a distance limit. Rewinding over longer distances can trigger a loading screen.
  • There is no cooldown on Mark Location, but there is a 30 seconds cooldown on Rewind.
  • Rewind can be used mid-air, allowing you to save yourself if you fall in no-fly zones.
  • The equipped bundle uses the skin of The Anomaly.


  • A similar item, named "Enchanted Hourglass", was accidentally whitelisted to appear in the items API 18 months prior to the release of Sandswept Isles. That item would have reset a character's position 10 seconds after use.
