wow Unlocking Flying: World Quests [Official]

4 posts in this topic

Blizzard has another entry in their step-by-step guide to unlocking flying in 7.2. This one is slightly weird, as there can't be too many people that haven't finished the World Quest part of the requirement, and is mostly an excuse to talk about the WQ system! In any case, you can also check out our full guide to getting flying, including the 7.2 steps.

From slaying bosses to collecting squirrels, there are hundreds of different (and occasionally cute) World Quests to take on. There’s something for everyone, with rewards that range from piles of gold to Legendary loot. What are you waiting for?

World Quests unlock when you reach level 110 and complete the quest Uniting the Isles. The quest asks you to reach Friendly with five of the Broken Isles’ factions: Valarjar, Highmountain Tribe, Dreamweavers, Court of Farondis, and the Nightfallen. This is easily achieved by questing through the respective zones without having to complete every quest in the area. As an extra incentive, getting to Friendly with the five factions rewards the incredibly useful Flight Master’s Whistle. This handy item whisks you away to the nearest known flight path, so you can make the perfect getaway once you’ve finished your mission and want to get home.

For the achievement Variety is the Spice of Life—part of Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part One—you must complete 100 unique World Quests, which shouldn't be too hard to get through, because there are over 800 diffrent World Quests that pop up on the map.

Faction World Quests

World Quests reward reputation with the faction offering the quest.

Zone-specific:
  • Valarjar in Stormheim
  • Highmountain Tribe in Highmountain
  • Dreamweavers in Val’sharah
  • Court of Farondis in Azsuna
  • The Nightfallen in Suramar

These are the most common World Quests and usually reward artifact power, gold, or gear.

Across all zones:
  • The Wardens
  • Kirin Tor

The Kirin Tor offer puzzles and conundrums throughout the Broken Isles, with quests that test your attention to detail, level of concentration, and love (or not) of puzzles.

 

Emissary Caches

Once a day, an Emissary task pops for you and the quest information appears on your map. The Emissary task is a set of four quests for a particular faction (except Kirin Tor, which only asks for three). When you complete the Emissary task and hand it in, you’ll be rewarded with two items: artifact power and a chest. The chest can drop gear, Order Resources, Blood of Sargeras, gold, and legendary loot. Completing the Kirin Tor Emissary task awards an extra reputation item, that can be applied to the faction of your choice.

 

Profession World Quests

Your primary and secondary professions also offer World Quests, and these quests are usually simpler. For example, for First Aid, you'll travel to a location and heal injured NPCs. For Fishing, you'll travel to a particular place and catch a certain number of fish. These quests are rarer than the faction quests, but they're very much worth doing if you haven't hit 800 points.

World Quest Difficulty

Epic World Quests appear in purple on the map and are always World Bosses. They take place either out in the world or inside a raid. These can only be completed as part of a group, so check Group Finder to find people to help you.

Rare World Quests appear in blue on the map and are sometimes—but not often— dungeon quests. Again, if you need to, you can find a dungeon group through Group Finder.

Everything else is a Common Quest and all of them can be soloed. These include a mix of kill missions, gathering, pet battles, percentage completion, storytelling, discovery, creation, or plain old silliness. There’s something for everyone.

 

World Quest Rewards
  • Artifact Power: level up your artifact weapon
  • Order Resources: recruit troops, run missions, and research upgrades for your order hall
  • PvP and PvE equipment: increase your gear level; some items upgrade (randomly) to warforged or titanforged
  • Blood of Sargeras: can be used as currency to buy resources from Illnea Bloodthorn
  • Profession reagents
  • Pet Charms
  • Reputation
  • Gold
  • Curious Coin: can be used as currency to buy items from Xur’ios
  • Essence of Aman’Thul: a quest item
  • Champion upgrades

 

What are you waiting for?
Remember: you don’t have to be on the Emissary task to do World Quests. If you really want to, you can complete every quest on the map. Even the one with the squirrels.

Let us know if we’ve missed anything in the comments below—and good luck!

Didn't they remove the Friendly requirement to start world quests in 7.1.5? Or is that only for alts on an account?

Also, are they adding First Aid world quests? Because the only FA quests so far are random zone drops, and I'd be surprised if they counted.

The title of this topic is "Unlocking Flying: World Quests [Official]".

I don't see anything about that here, do you? It is all about world quests.

This article focuses on the World Quests part of the requirement. Since all you have to do for this part is complete 100 World Quests, a small reminder as to what exactly they are and how to complete them as efficiently as possible can never hurt. So, this is, as Starym said, "mostly an excuse to talk about the WQ system!"

      Squirky is a new capturable Murloc pet that can be found on the Seabreak Isle (Azsuna). In this mini-guide we're looking at how to capture him.
      There are murlocs and crabs that hit hard and it's easy to aggro groups of mobs. Make sure to approach Squirky on your flying mount and click him as soon as you land so you begin the battle before entering combat. The pet cannot be caged.
      Abilities
      Squirky has the following abilities
      Level 1 - Punch Level 2 - Clobber Level 4 - For Adventure! Level 10 - Fish Slap Level 15 - Stampede Level 20 - Bubble Pet Model

      Location Coords: Seabreak Isle - Azsuna (20,21)

      Tomb of Sargeras is coming within a month (hopefully) and we got the official preview with developer insights and some background lore for the raid and each individual boss. Mythic testing is on the way this weekend so the tentative mid-June release date might actually be possible, although near the end of the month seems more likely. In any case, enjoy the pretty detailed preview:
      Blizzard (source)
      Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, the combined forces of the Class Orders have fought their way through the Broken Shore to reach the Tomb of Sargeras. With weapons of great power and the Pillars of Creation at hand, the defenders of Azeroth must face these last foes before the portal is sealed, cutting off the Burning Legion’s access to Azeroth.
      Minimum Level: 110
      Location: The Broken Shore
      Bosses: 9
      Difficulty: Raid Finder, Normal, Heroic, Mythic
      Aegwynn used this sacred temple of Elune to lock away the defeated Sargeras’ avatar. She hoped it would remain dormant, buried deep within the earth, but the lure of power has continued to draw foul entities to this site. When Gul’dan reentered the tomb, he tore down Aegwynn’s wards and opened a doorway for the Legion to invade. Now the fel army tears at the vault, hoping to reclaim their master’s power.
      Encounters and Bosses
      You can learn a bit about each of the bosses below. Make sure you check out the in-game Adventure Guide (Shift-J) for a full list of tips for Healers, Damage Dealers, and Tanks. 
      Goroth
      As punishment for past failures Goroth’s flesh is marred with searing wounds. With every movement this behemoth makes, his flesh crackles and hisses with unending torment, a scourge he is happy to inflict upon those who oppose him.
      Demonic Inquisition
      Anticipating the arrival of mortal forces invading the Tomb of Sargeras, Kil’jaeden has called on his best captors, Atrigan and Belac, to lock down the interlopers and prevent them from using the Pillars to advance deeper into the dungeon.
      Harjatan
      Harjatan was trained from birth to demolish his enemies. Through a conquest of savage brutality, he gathered throngs of cave dwelling murlocs who see him as a god. Now, the naga brute merely has to bark a command and hordes of devout followers set themselves to task.
      Mistress Sassz’ine
      Mistress Sassz’ine has spent a lifetime binding the denizens of the ocean to her dark will. With this power, she summons nightmares from the briny depths to wash away any who dare challenge her.
      Sisters of the Moon
      The Sisters of the Moon served as wardens for the temple long before the avatar of Sargeras was buried beneath it. Even in death, the sisters maintained their vigil, but over the millennia something twisted their ability to distinguish friend from foe. Their madness slowly consumed them, and now any who enter their sacred chambers are put to death.
      The Desolate Host
      Once, this was a sacred burial site for the night elves, until the Legion corrupted these grounds with the Engine of Souls. This foul machine draws upon the energy of the dead, twisting them into abominations.These tormented spirits have become monstrosities, looking to feed on any who descend into the tomb’s depths.
      Maiden of Vigilance
      Charged by Aegwynn to defend the Tomb of Sargeras, the Maiden of Vigilance has stood watch for hundreds of years. Yet, the guardian did not foresee what effect the avatar’s seeping fel energy would have on this titan construct. Slowly warped by this maleficence, the maiden now seeks to destroy any in her path.
      Fallen Avatar
      When Aegwynn defeated the Avatar of Sargeras, she was unable to destroy his avatar. In an effort to seal it away, the armor was entombed beneath the Temple of Elune, where it remained dormant for hundreds of years. Now, with the Legion tearing down the tomb’s barriers, Kil’jaeden is in a position to reanimate the armor and unleash its power on Azeroth.
      Kil’jaeden
      Since striking the bargain that chased the Draenei into the stars, Kil’jaeden believed the Legion could not be stopped—yet, none of his deceptions have prevented you from reaching this critical moment. Infuriated that Sargeras’ promise of victory has never come to pass, the demon lord prepares to face you himself, for a final battle that will shape Azeroth’s destiny forever.
      We’ll see you in the tomb!
