There are plenty of quests to keep you busy in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, from the main storyline to side quests and world quests. With the new level 70 zone, The Forbidden Reach, added in the latest patch, now is the perfect time to go through and catch up on some of the quests you may have missed. So let’s go through some of the best quests in Dragonflight.
Best Quests in Dragonflight
We’ll start off our list with simple ones that are just fun or provide neat features and work our way to the most impactful and memorable quests in Dragonflight.
A Gateway to Somewhere
In A Gateway to Somewhere, you assist Warpcaster Delandra in reopening one of the dormant Ancient Waygates on the Dragon Isles. Completing the quest allows you to begin unlocking other waygates around the continent, helping you to get around a lot more quickly.
A Climber’s Calling
A Climber’s Calling introduces the rock climbing mini-game. It also unlocks the Expedition Supply Kit, which has some very cool exploration features, such as allowing you to place flags at the tops of mountain peaks.
The Community Feast is a regularly occurring event in the village of Iskaara. Every 90 minutes the village works together to cook up a giant pot of soup, and you get to participate. Follow the orders of the head chef, Big Kinook, and shout “Yes Chef!” as you protect the soup from enemy attack.
The tuskarr in Azure Span offer quite a variety of fun fishing-related quests. Fishing Holes is offered to you by the adorable young Rowie, and it unlocks the use of fishing holes in the Dragon Isles. Fishing holes appear on the map like world quests, and offer some nearby daily quests that are also very fun and unique.
A Practice Bout
If you haven’t spent a lot of time on pet battles before, it’s easy to get started by doing this short quest chain. First you’ll acquire Lubbins, a proto drake pet. Lubbins needs some training, and A Practice Bout guides you through a pet battle and some other pet-related features. At the end of the chain, you’ll have a full team of level 25 pets, meaning you’ll be able to jump right into max-level pet battles.
If you ever played Pokemon Snap, you’ll love this quest. Picture Perfect is the culmination of several quests that have you snapping photos of wildlife in The Waking Shores. You’ll ride a raft down the river and photograph the animals along the banks. Completing this quest also unlocks the cataloging world quests.
In Secret Research, you’ll supervise a group of junior explorers as they attempt to help an injured baby proto drake. With the help of a nearby adult, you’ll heal the injured creature. There’s a lot of enjoyable banter and flavor text in this quest.
Toejam the Terrible
Speaking of cute kids, we’re back with Rowie the tuskarr for Toejam the Terrible. Rowie is a brave and precocious kid who believes that with your help, he can take on a full-sized yeti. It turns out the yeti in question is a big softie, and with a little persuasion, he agrees to play dead so that Rowie can claim his victory.
The Many Images of Kalecgos
The Many Images of Kalecgos serves as Dragonflight’s introduction to the aspect of the blue dragonflight. Kalecgos is a master of the arcane, and this little quest gives a distinct impression of him as a clever but eccentric wizard. It’s definitely amusing watching all of his mirror images walk around and interact.
Feels Like the First Time
For a moment you might be confused when you get to this quest and the opening cinematic for your character’s starting zone begins to play. Feels Like the First Time sends you right back to the beginning of your character’s journey. It’s a neat little touch, albeit a shortlived experience.
In Memory of Ysera
Ysera’s death was one of the most emotional moments in World of Warcraft, and although she technically made a return in the Shadowlands expansion, she remains unable to rejoin the living in Azeroth. In Memory of Ysera is a poignant little quest about members of the green dragonflight who miss their leader and friend.
The Courage of One’s Convictions
You’re helping Wrathion to retake the Obsidian Citadel, assuming he’s about to become the new aspect of the black dragonflight. Then you get to The Courage of One’s Convictions and Wrathion’s long-lost big brother Sabellion shows up. Suddenly we have a real royal drama on our hands.
The Cycle of the Sea
There are a few funeral scenes in Dragonflight, but The Cycle of the Sea is the most emotionally powerful one. You stand with the entire village as they see their lost chieftain off, and his boat is encircled by glowing stingrays before it is swallowed by a giant shark. In a sweet cutscene, the tuskarr explain to Kalecgos that celebrating his memory will keep their lost loved one with them forever.
Race Through Time!
Race Through Time! is the culmination of a series of quests in which you chase Chromie and Eternus through the timeways as they tumble out of control. This particular quest has you racing through Stratholme, Ahn’Qiraj, and Vale of Eternal Blossoms in an attempt to catch up with the dragons and send them back to the true timeline. The timer gives it a frantic feeling as you rush from one place to the next.
Another quest in the same chain as Race Through Time!, Mugurlglrlgl! puts you in a version of Dragonblight that very much resembles the Dragon Soul raid – except instead of dragons, this timeline is populated with murlocs. Follow the quest to its thrilling conclusion, the followup quest Deathwingurlugull!, to defeat a giant murloc and continue chasing Chromie. While you’re on this quest, be sure to open up your map and take a look at the names on it!
The Trouble with Taivan
The Trouble with Taivan is that he is a bakar – a type of dog kept by the centaurs for hunting and herding – who won’t hunt or herd. You spend several quests with Taivan trying to train him to be useful to his clan, to no avail – until you must rescue some injured centaurs from a village that has been attacked. Taivan leaps into action, and finds his purpose. The questline ends with Taivan comforting an orphan, who immediately bonds with the dog.
Dragonriding is a central feature of the Dragonflight expansion, and this first quest sets you off on a long journey to complete races, gather dragon glyphs, and customize your dragon. It feels great to be able to fly so early in the expansion, and it opens up the Dragon Isles for exploration. Every zone in the continent is specifically designed with dragonriding in mind, and it shows in their verticality. This mode of flying feels smooth, and a lot more satisfyingly interactive than a regular old flying mount.
Stay A While
World of Warcraft can be hectic at times. There’s always so much to do and so little time to do it. But with Stay A While, the game encourages you to stop and smell the roses. This quest is deceptively simple – you just sit down next to this old dwarf and have a long conversation. But Veritistrasz weaves a beautiful, bittersweet tale of his youth in the Dragon Isles, and the friend he lost when the black dragonflight turned on the others.
Reclaiming the Oathstone
When Kalecgos activates the Azure Oathstone, he is greeted by a surprising figure. In Reclaiming the Oathstone, we get to see what Sindragosa was like before she died and was resurrected as a frostwyrm by the Lich King. Her simulacrum assists Kalecgos as he reestablishes the blue dragonflight’s presence in the Azure Span.
But there’s a sadness in seeing her like this, knowing what her ultimate fate was – and it serves as a reminder that many of the dragons who have turned against the other dragonflights started out as good guys.
Back to the Future
The finale of the main Dragon Isles storyline is a doozy: you’re sent all the way back into the past to the time of the Black Empire, when the Old Gods ruled Azeroth. Back to the Future is an interesting name for this quest, because the Hour of Twilight prophecy says that the Old Gods will someday return and bring an end to the world. So, could this become the future, as well as the past?
This quest’s lore bombs don’t stop there, though. When you return to the present, you’re treated with a touching scene between Nozdormu and Chromie. In it, Nozdormu reminds us that he is fated to become Murozond, the corrupted leader of the infinite dragonflight – a group that seeks to bring about the Hour of Twilight and the return of the Old Gods. We don’t know when or why Nozdormu will change, but judging by the mood of this quest, it’s likely to be soon.
