What are World Quests in Legion?

Recommended Posts

wDxGDxw.png

Legion is going to see the introduction of a brand new world-PvE mechanic known as the world quest. Take a look at exactly what it is, why you need to do it and what you can get from it!

Let's start off with the most basic question of them all:

What is a World Quest?

World Quests function in a similar way to how bonus objectives did in Warlords of Draenor. Essentially, you can open your map when you reach level 110 and you will see a number of markers across the world. These markers indicate different types of World Quest that can be completed. You will need to journey to the location of the quest and it will automatically start. You need to complete the criteria listed by the quest and you will then receive a reward based on the quest and its difficulty.

What types of World Quest exist?

There are the following types of World Quests in Legion:

  • Normal quests that can be completed by a solo player, marked by a normal yellow "!".
  • Small group quests that require you to kill an elite mob, marked by a yellow "!" with a dragon border.
  • Group quests that require you to kill a rare elite, marked by a blue "!" with a dragon border.
  • Group quests that require you to go into a dungeon, marked by a blue skull with a dragon border.
  • Group quests that require you to kill a world boss, marked by a purple "!" with a dragon border.
  • PvP quests, marked by the PvP "crossed swords" symbol.
  • Pet battle quests, marked by the usual green paw.
  • Profession quests, marked by your professions icon.

What rewards can I get from World Quests?

There's a big variety here, especially with so many different types of World Quest available. The rewards that are possible include the following:

  • Currencies, such as:
    • Gold
    • Order Resources
    • Artifact Power
  • Materials, such as:
    • Blood of Sargeras
    • Crafting materials
  • Troop and Champion items for your class hall.
  • Rank 3 recipes for professions.
  • Gear for players, starting at item level 805.
  • PvP gear from the PvP quests.
  • Reputation with Broken Isles factions.

It's important to note that as your item level increases, the gear that you get will also increase in item level to make sure that World Quests stay relevant. 

Emissary Quests

Each day, when you're getting ready to do your World Quests, make sure to check your map to see which faction's emissary quest is available. A new one will become available every day and you can have 3 up at any time. Once an emissary quest has been up for 3 days, it will be replaced by another. 

These emissary quests require you to complete 4 World Quests that are tied to a particular Broken Isles faction. Once done, you can go to the faction's emissary, also known as their quartermaster, and hand it in for a bonus reward. You will receive:

  • 1500 Reputation with the faction that issued the quest.
  • A chest that can contain the following items:
    • Order Resources
    • Artifact Power
    • Equipment for Champions and Troops
    • Legendaries
    • The item that starts the questline to obtain the fox mount, Reins of the Llothien ProwlerReins of the Llothien Prowler.

Kirin Tor Emissary Quest

This one works slightly differently, mainly due to the fact that the Kirin Tor doesn't really have a zone that they can call their "hub". Instead, the Kirin Tor World Quests can spawn in any zone and are often puzzles rather than just killing a certain number of mobs.

Once you have completed 4 of their quests, your reward is much the same as the other emissary quests, except for the fact that you can choose which reputation you gain 1500 rep with from the Broken Isles.

haha i guess it was just a stateside thing. A cartoon/show/gameshow about a clever international thief named carmen sandiago. The song went "where in the world is carmen sandiago". so I was trying to be punny and parallel that to the articles title what are world quests XD. not 100% successful but i tried. might have worked better if it was "where in the world can I find my llothien prowler" or something to that effect. 

edit: the first appearance of her was in 1985.... so... i'm showing my age here XD. we may have to delete this entire article so i don't feel old  :P

Yeah I remember her. The "police" (I can't recall the name of the organization hunting her down) were always just behind her. And IIRC she'd steal things that would require a lot of effort, like a pyramid,Big Ben or the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. Like things a half competent organization would be able to at least confront her while she was doing and stop her if not capture her. And they always got the stuff back, so it's like she really didn't even really desire the things she was stealing more like she did it to show the incompetence of the authorities.

Also good article on World quests.

Will the world quests be the same for all players?

And more importantly, if you have to kill an (optional) boss in a dungeon, will all players benefit from that kill? Or will you be forced to beg the whole party to tag along on your kill...?

Yeah, everyone has the same world quests available everywhere except in Suramar.

The dungeon ones normally require you to just kill the final boss of the instance, at least from what I have completed so far. I'll look into this more.

This sounds like a cleaner version of the various quests that were given through the garrisons in WoD, with the improved feature of gear rewarded staying in line with current item level.  I'm excited to see how this plays out.

Frickin Fox mount. 

It should be purple, to indicate its level of Epic-ness. 

Although - it is Orange...

I know so many people that were just so excited for this mount :P I hope they have new skins of it in the future, it's amazing!

According to what I have read so far, dungeons will have special 'optional' rares that you will need to kill for dungeon world quests. And on top of that you also need to finish the dungeon of course, or A-holes would blow the party once they get their required kill :)

Yeah, that was what I thought. You need to always kill the final boss to actually complete the quest to stop what happened in WoD.

I like this idea better then the bonus objectives.  They just felt like filler to me.  This seems much more involved and worth it.

Definitely. These are literally bonus objectives, but better. It shows Blizzard has taken feedback from WoD on board.

Do you turn into a pot of petunias if you fall to the ground while on the whale?  Or does just the whale itself?

      Currently, on the Dragonflight Beta, you won't reach Level 70 just by completing the campaign. You also need to run dungeons or complete side quests.
      The first gating occurs in Azure Span where you need to be Level 66 to continue the Dragonflight campaign. However, you will be safe if you complete at least 3 dungeons at Level 60 and higher and you won't need to complete any side quests.
      The second gating, however, is more noticeable and you will need to reach Level 70 to be able to start the final two chapters of the Dragonflight campaign.

      Dragonflight includes a ton of side quests that you can easily find by opening the map for each zone and they reward you with reputation that increases your Renown with the main factions, so you would probably complete them anyway.

      What do you think about gating the main campaign behind levels? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

      On live servers, the Frog'it World Quest required for "From A to Zereth", is currently available in the US region.
      If you've been waiting a long time for the quest to spawn, you can now complete it on live servers, at least in the US region, according to reports.
      Completing the quest is required for From A to Zereth, and ultimately, the Back from the Beyond meta-achievement that will be removed from the game soon.
      From A to Zereth rewards the Cryptic Aurelid mount.
