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?

      When will MOTHER reset in my region? Check out the countdown here!
      Deadly Momentum  (Rank 1 // 15 Corruption) for 4,125 Echoes of Ny'alotha Your critical hits have a chance to increase your Critical Strike for 31 for 30 seconds, stacking up to 5 times. Twilight Devastation (Rank 1 // 25 Corruption) for 6,250 Echoes of Ny'alotha Your attacks have a chance to trigger a beam of Twilight Devastation, dealing damage equal to 6% of your Health to all enemies in front of you.

      Rextroy is back with a new video, where he one-shots 20 players with a single Chaos Bolt thanks to the Void Ritual Corruption Effect. 
      It took Rextroy a while to come up with a new video because he had to gear up his Warlock from scratch and farm Echoes of Ny'alotha to make this work since Blizzard recently implemented Inescapable Consequences that kills you when you have more than 200 Corruption equipped at once.
      Void Ritual is the perfect Corruption Effect that increases the damage of Chaos Bolt since the damage scales with Critical Strike, Mastery, and Versatility.
      The Bane of Havoc PvP Talent allows you to hit as many people with Chaos Bolt as you need.
      Rextroy also had to gather Azerite pieces with Crashing Chaos and Chaotic Inferno to make this work. The Essences used for this combo are Worldvein Resonance and Replica of Knowledge (The Formless Void). Important are also Gladiator's Badge and the Fireblood racial. You get an additional 12% damage increase from Grimoire of Supremacy, so all these effect combined will substantially increase the damage of Chaos Bolt.
      There's also a workaround for Inescapable Consequences. Simply, removing your Void Ritual gear after you get the proc makes it keep stacking up the secondary stats at full power, allowing you to enter combat with your normal gear together with an instane stat boost.
      Check out the video below for more information!

      As the end of expansion lull is upon us, we should always remember there are many, MANY things to do in WoW that aren't just current content, and we have a really cool challenge/concept by Deededee everyone should take a look at! He's taken playing old raids to a whole new and fun level. The idea is quite simple and very roguelike: you start out naked in Molten Core and just gear up along the way. The catch is you stop if you die (although that part can be skipped if you're not a hardcore type of person) and tally all the drops you got, trying to get further and get some better stuff along the way.

      This will certainly make transmog runs more fun, if you can stomach doing a few raids you don't need stuff from, but it really seems worth it.
      Another fun aspect of this is sharing the results with friends on twitter or elsewhere (or just keep the screenshots for yourself and see if you can beat your previous upgrade tally), and then commiserate how unlucky you got with drops (which, let's face it, is the primary mode of communication in WoW ? ).
      I'll definitely be doing a few runs, if nothing else to see how many times the left binding can drop off Garr on characters that aren't my warrior, so I can complain about that a bit more (because 15 years just isn't enough)!
