World Quest Breakdown: Legion

Belle Legion Guides Leave a Comment

World Quests are a new daily quest concept being introduced in Legion. While they occur every day, World Quests are different from dailies as we currently know them because they do not reset every day. In Legion, each World Quest has its own timer and the time available varies depending on the level of difficulty.

  • Looking on your map, you will see the world quests marked in each zone. Hovering over the map with your pointer shows all the information you need in regards to the quest.
  • There will be World quests for everything from Pet Battles to Professions to PvP and even gear upgrades.
  • Each realm has the same World Quests so it is easy to find others on your server to quest with. You'll want to find other players and guild members to help you tackle the more challenging quests.
  • Blizzard has created hundreds of these new quests, so the odds of repeating quests are minimal. They will be adding even more throughout Legion as well.
  • There is no cap on the amount of World Quest you can do in a day. It is important to note that completing them does not re-spawn new ones right away.

I have broken down everything here in a concise video to help with visuals, so don't forget to check it out!

Once this is done you unlock World Quests and get the Flight Masters Whistle which is usable item that Requests a pickup to the nearest flight master. Its only usable in Broken Isles and is on a 5 min cool-down.
