In World of Warcraft: Legion, a new questing feature is available at level 110 called World Quests.
This new system represents a major change from how player characters used to make regular progression daily or weekly. In Legion, you’ll find the war against the Legion taking place on multiple fronts all over the Broken Isles, and a wide variety of World Quest options available to you from professions to PvP to story-driven tasks, and more.
World Quests become available to players at level 110. Once you’ve reached this level you’ll be provided a quest from Khadgar within Dalaran called “Uniting the Isles” which asks you to reach “Friendly” with five key factions within the Broken Isles. In order to do this however, you’ll need to make sure you’ve participated in each of the available zones:
- Azsuna: Court of Farondis
- Highmountain: Highmountain Tribe
- Stormheim: Valarjar
- Suramar: Nightfallen
- Val'sharah: Dreamweavers
Completing the zones won’t be necessary to reach Friendly. Following the main questline for each should be enough to get you there.
As a reward for your endeavors, you’ll receive your Flight Master’s Whistle, and available World Quests will begin to appear within each zone’s map. You won’t see the quests within the larger Broken Isles map so will need to click on the individual zone you’re interested in exploring. Hovering your mouse over the quests on the map will also show you what tasks will need to be done to complete the quest and the rewards you’ll receive for completing it. It will also show you the remaining duration that the quest is available for.
If you’ve downloaded the new Legion Companion App for your mobile device, you can also keep track of the available World Quests within it when you’re not at your computer. Learn more about the app in our overview article and video.
Tip: The Flight Master’s Whistle is one of the most-useful items around—when you activate it, you’ll be (almost) instantly whisked away to the nearest known flight master. More than ever before, you’ll want to get to know all of the flight masters in every zone!
Times and Places
Each of the zones within the Broken Isles offer a variety of World Quests and you and everyone else on your realm will be offered the same World Quests at any given time. This is a great way to group up with friends, guildmates, or anyone else that just happens to be in the same area.
World Quests come in varying durations, and those that are more difficult (and rewarding) typically have longer durations. This allows you a bit more flexibility when deciding on which to do and when to do them. There’s no limit on how many World Quests you can do, but keep in mind completing World Quests doesn’t cause more World Quests to immediately spawn. With this in mind, you’ll be able to plan things out and make the most of your time.
A Variety of Offerings
There are many different types of World Quests that you’ll see on your map. They might include:
- Solo adventures.
- Challenge that require multiple people.
- Profession advancement.
- World Bosses
- Dungeon challenges with a group.
- Pet Battling.
- Player-versus-Player activities.
You’ll get to see several details about each World Quest before you travel to it, thus being able to pick and choose which of these quests will benefit you most. Those details include rewards offered, such as:
- Artifact Power
- Blood of Sargeras
- PvE or PvP gear
- Profession reagents
- Pet Charms
- Reputation with a specific faction
Some rewards scale with your current item level.
There are hundreds of World Quests available within the Broken Isles, so you won’t be seeing too many of the same World Quests anytime soon. You will want to keep your eyes on short World Quest chains called Emissary Quests, which reward you with a valuable satchel when you complete them. Each day, a new Emissary Quest chain will become available, and you can have up to three Emissaries at the same time. These will be displayed at the bottom left corner of your map and will show additional information on the requirements for each when you click on them.
Each of the Emissary World Quest turn-ins offers reputation with the primary faction of its associated zone. That means that if your biggest focus is Nightfallen reputation, you’ll want to make sure you don’t miss the Emissary World Quests in Suramar when they’re available.
