The Vision of Time is an hourglass created by Kairozdormu with the help of Adventurers. The sands within are formed from epoch stones, condensed essences of time found on the Timeless Isle, and with grains of the  [Sands of Time] contained in the Hourglass of Time. Using the Vision of Time, one can witness the past and future, and even alternate timelines.

Kairoz tasks Adventurers with powering the Vision of Time by gathering epoch stones across the Timeless Isle. Once the Vision of Time is powered, he sends the heroes to key locations in Azeroth to use its powers and try to find a traitor within the Bronze Dragonflight. The final vision received is of Soridormi, consort to Nozdormu, dying and Kairoz himself walking away from her corpse.

The Vision of Time is used during the trial of Garrosh Hellscream to show the court exactly what occured without relying on witness testimony, such as Durotan's attack on Telmor or Malkorok beating Kor'jus within an inch of his life. Kairoz also tinkers with the hourglass to make it stronger, to the point that his fellow dragon Chromie grows suspicious.

When his work on the Vision of Time is complete, Kairoz locks Chromie in a cage and uses the hourglass to escape with Garrosh through history, traveling to the planet Draenor thirty-five years before the present day. Kairoz also uses its powers to call on alternate versions of heroes from many different timelines, causing chaos to erupt in the courtroom and distracting anyone from following him and Garrosh.

The time travel destroys the Vision of Time and Chromie quickly moves over to the shattered pieces, presumably to gather them up.

While most of the Vision of Time's pieces remained on Azeroth, Kairoz was able to secure a shard and brought it to Draenor along with him. He explained to Garrosh that it was still connected to Azeroth, and could be used to bring them and Garrosh's new Horde back there. Garrosh retrieved the shard from Kairoz and then stabbed him in the back with it, killing him.

Garrosh traveled to Grommashar and met with Grommash Hellscream. Proving himself in a duel against four orcs, Garrosh revealed the Vision's shard and brought Grommash to the Stones of Prophecy. Using the shard, he showed Grommash the events of the main timeline and the enslavement of the orcs to the Burning Legion. Grommash, convinced that this must not be, formed the Iron Horde.
