World quests are a new type of end-game content introduced with World of Warcraft: Legion. Designed as a "best of both worlds" quest system, it functions in a way that makes daily quests much more compelling, focusing on player choice and story.
Each day a max level player logs in, they are presented with a host of world quests to choose from for each scalable zone and max level zones. World quests vary from zone to zone and the rewards also vary. Faction-specific emissaries will also appear in class Order Halls to offer quests as well.
World quests will remain on the map for varying periods of time - from hours to an entire week - depending upon the type of quest and its level of rarity.
Examples of quests include:
- Garrison-type missions for players
- Reputation-specific objectives
- PvP objectives
- World raid bosses
- Profession missions
- Elite, Epic, and Rare combinations
