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.

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!"

      Toad mounts are finally coming in Tides of Vengeance, as Blizzard added two tints in the latest 8.1 PTR build. At this time, it's hard to tell the exact source of both mounts, but they could come from Glory of the Battle of Dazar'alor Raider or reputation paragon caches.

      Blizzard agrees that earning Azerite Armor in Mythic+ feels overly based on luck and in Tides of Vengeance, players will have more control over the Azerite gear they earn through Mythic+.
      Blizzard is adding a new currency in Patch 8.1, which you'll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest and from scrapping and disenchanting epic-quality Azerite Armor. The weekly chest will no longer reward Azerite Armor. Thaumaturge Vashreen will be selling caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot that will be separated by item level.
      To give players even more control over Azerite Armor, Vashreen will also offer ilvl 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at premium.
      Only Azerite Armor scrapped in 8.1 will yield the new currency. Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly when the second Mythic+ season starts.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Couple quick clarifications based on feedback so far: Only Azerite Armor that drops after Tides of Vengeance is released will scrap/disenchant into the new currency. Don't worry about hoarding the Azerite pieces you're earning now. When the next Mythic+ season starts, and item levels increase, the item levels of Thaumaturge Vashreen's wares will increase accordingly. We recognize that PvPers want more options and choice too. We're talking about that separately. Check out our Tides of Vengeance content hub for the latest Patch 8.1 information.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Throughout the discussions regarding Azerite Armor, there’s been a lot of talk about how you earn Azerite pieces from Mythic+ dungeons. Players have told us – and we agree – that the process of earning Azerite Armor through Mythic+ feels overly based on luck, and that there isn’t enough control in the players’ hands. Even with our bad luck protection systems in place, the sheer number of potential Azerite pieces you can get from the weekly chest means that trying to get ahold of a specific piece feels hopeless. That’s a problem we want to solve, and give you some control over the Azerite gear you earn through Mythic+. So here’s what we’re working on for Tides of Vengeance:
      First, we’re adding a new (as yet unnamed) currency, which you’ll earn from your weekly Mythic+ chest as well as from scrapping (or disenchanting) epic-quality Azerite Armor. This currency is rewarded in addition to the item in the chest (which can no longer be an Azerite piece), and the amount you earn will scale up exponentially based on the highest level Keystone you’ve completed. For example, completing a level 10 Keystone will reward you with about three times as much as clearing a level 7. Similarly, scrapping higher-item-level Azerite pieces will give you significantly higher amounts of this currency than lower-level pieces.

      To spend that currency, we’re bringing back an old friend: Thaumaturge Vashreen. He’ll have two main types of items for sale. The first are caches that reward a random dungeon Azerite Armor piece for a given slot (helm, shoulders, or chest). They’ll be separated out by item level as well (at 355, 370, and 385), with higher item level caches requiring significantly more currency to purchase. But we recognize that with six or more options per slot, this may still not be enough control for high-end players who want to be able to work towards a specific piece that perfectly complements their build. Thus, Vashreen will also offer Item Level 385 versions of the specific dungeon Azerite Armor pieces for each class, sold at a premium.
      We’re still nailing down the exact numbers, but our goal for tuning this new currency is that you’ll be able to purchase one of the Azerite caches that lines up roughly with the item level of the gear you’re getting from your Mythic+ runs every two or three weeks, with the specific 385 pieces as long-term goals for top players.
      Overall, we believe that this change will improve things in a lot of different ways:
      Mythic+ players of all skill levels will now have a clear path to upgrading their Azerite slots High-end Mythic+ players will have a way to target specific Azerite pieces to optimize their setups Duplicate or unwanted Azerite pieces from other sources (such as raiding) now have some additional value The piece of gear in your weekly chest will have a more reliable item level You should see all of this hitting the Tides of Vengeance PTR sometime in the next week or so. We really do appreciate your feedback, and believe that this, in addition to the new traits and other improvements coming to the Azerite system in Tides of Vengeance, will help ease a lot of the concerns about Azerite Armor in Mythic+ and as a whole.
