So with Dragonflight yet again raising the level cap and giving our characters a general boost in power, a lot of the old world content has suddenly become much more efficient to do, especially if you like cool rewards such as cosmetics, mounts, pets, and even making gold. So in today's video, I'll be cutting down my top five now easily soloable old world pieces of content for awesome rewards, and with that, starting from number five.
And this isn't really ranked in any particular order because a lot of these rewards and content are quite subjective, but I would like to start with Island Expeditions, which features lots of really unique rewards and a plethora of them, from transmog pieces to pets that are cageable that you can even sell. Two very unique-looking mounts and very significantly, it's one of the very few places that can drop one of these types of parent mounts, which itself is enough reason for many players to want to do Islands.
Now, the way Islands work is that different types of islands will be on rotation every week that you can queue for, and these are sort of like solo instances that you can enter or you can enter as a group. But with gear and levels from Dragonflight, you shouldn't have to, and should be able to solo the highest difficulty Mythic Islands without much difficulty and with efficiency.
Now, one way to target rewards you want is to look at the rotation of islands that are live for the week, and you can actually tell by going over to Wowhead and selecting the BFA Tab. Then what you'll want to do is to also check on Wowhead the types of mobs you want to target for these specific rewards you want. For instance, if you like to target farm the parrot mount Squawks, you wouldn't want to go for islands that spawn pirate mobs.
And even if the island and mob type you want is not available for that week, just by farming up Island Expeditions on Mythic, of course in general, you'll be able to earn these Doubloon currencies that you can then trade in for the specific types of satchels that you want that might have odds of dropping the items you want. For example, here the Crestfall Salvage crate here specifies that you can get items that drop from dragons as well as pirates, and so this one actually has a decent chance of dropping these clocks now as well.
Lastly, to queue up for these Island Expeditions, all you have to do is to find the representative in your Battle for Azeroth City hub. For example, for Horde, it would be the Zara Lore, and then for Alliance, Boralus. To access these cities, you could simply teleport there from your portal room in your main fashion cities. Next, at number four, and this is actually a two-in-one because of how similar in nature they are, and because they also came out on the same patch, and that is the Mechagon zone as well as the Nazjatar zone.
Now, there are a ton of rewards associated with both of these zones, from pets to mounts to cosmetics. Most notably, also with each of these zones, there is a meta-achievement where you complete all the required achievements, you'll be able to unlock some truly cool and unique-looking mounts. Starting with the crab mount from An Azure Time, and then there's also a lot of other mounts that you can pick up along the way.
Aquatic ones that are also quite unique, but the Snapback Scuttler here used to be a lot more difficult to obtain back when it was the most recent content in Battle for Azeroth because of the rare spawns you had to kill and you had to wait for them to spawn and for people to kill.
Being able to somewhat farm from a rare elite that will also see fewer people farming it because of a lack of players on Mechagon. So, that's the sort of bronze cycle that we're seeing here. The Junkheap Drifter, and again, even without completing these meta-achievements, you'll still be able to unlock a plethora of rewards from Battle Pets, many of which are cageable and sellable to mounts by gaining reputation with each of the factions.
The Rustbolt Resistance on Mechagon, and then the various natural factions, which have Horde and Alliance versions, and also bodyguards on Nazjatar that you can gain further reputation with to unlock other rewards with. There are other rewards like rare spawn drops and different types of currencies that you can trade in for different types of rewards as well. For all these, you can just check out the guides I'll have linked below from Wowhead.
Now, it does take a short questline each to unlock each of these zones, but it shouldn't be much trouble over time, especially with a geared character and an over-level character, even from Shadowlands and, of course, from Draenor.
Once you've unlocked each of these zones, you'll be able to first of all teleport to an Azshara from your Battle for Azeroth city. And as for Mechagon, you'll be able to access it from that city as well, but not through a portal but by talking to an NPC by the docks.
If you haven't unlocked Battle for Azeroth flying, it might be very helpful to do so to be able to make both of these zones or traversing in both these zones a lot more efficient, and it also shouldn't be too difficult as well if you already have that time to do the actual daily quests and build up reputation with each of those factions.
Moving on to number three, and this one can actually have a bit higher of a barrier to entry because of some of the mechanics involved, and also the questline to unlock this zone is actually a bit longer. Also, you have to do a bit of other content to get enough currency to be able to run this content. So, I wouldn't necessarily recommend doing this one unless you really like the rewards and actually enjoy running this content. And it does offer some pretty unique-looking rewards. The piece of content in question is called Visions of N'Zoth from Battle for Azeroth. Primarily, you'll be able to unlock this very unique-looking black dragon scale backpack inspired by N'Zoth's design.
How fitting for the Dragonfly expansion, right? And also, besides this, you'll also be able to unlock a mount. This is also a very unique-looking Old God Mount called The Wicked Swarmer. And there are also some achievements you can complete for rewards like certain Old God-themed pets and actually a mount called the Black Serpent of N'Zoth. Which, on the achievement, is actually not that difficult to do, or if you're already especially really geared up, compared to the aforementioned Mechagon and Nazjatar ones that might take a bit more time because you have to do like rare hunting and it's a bit RNG-based. For this one, you simply have to complete the necessary runs and be able to pass the DPS checks and whatnot to be able to unlock this mount.
However, besides DPS, there's another interesting mechanic called sanity, which depletes rather quickly if you don't have the legendary cloak upgraded. This legendary cloak from Wrathion, you actually have to keep upgrading by doing more and more runs and then also utilizing the talent tree here to make the runs a bit easier.
Visions of N'Zoth from Battle for Azeroth, I'll have a guide for that. I'll hit the link below in the description box as well. Now, before we move on to number two, I have a couple more rewards I want to highlight from the Visions of N'Zoth that are pretty easily missed but can be pretty easy to add to your rotation if you decide to run these.
The first one is the Mail Muncher, which is a look-alike recolor of the Black Serpent of the South from the achievement. You can actually have a chance of dropping by clicking on mailboxes throughout visions that'll be able to drop them out for you.
Next, we also have the Shadow-Barb Drone, which actually doesn't involve running any Visions results at all because this actually comes from a series of daily quests. You sort of raise your own larva with this questline from this NPC right here in Uldum.
Speaking of which, by the way, if you want to do Visions regularly, you'll also often have to do these assaults which happen in Uldum as well as the Veil of Eternal Blossoms in Pandaria, which will actually help you rack up the currency needed to run these visions.
One sort of easy way to get the currency is to do the mini Visions, so next to the town, you'll be able to find a daily quest explanation mark to zone into like a mini-version of the Visions and to be able to knock out that pretty quickly to get a lot of the currency very efficiently to run your Visions.
Next to number two, and I get that Shadowlands probably wasn't an expansion that's left the best taste in everyone's mouths, but its flagship feature, Torghast, has become significantly easier again thanks to the power-ups we've gotten in Dragonflight. And in terms of the rewards you can get from it, there are a lot of drops for cosmetic items that you can sort of pick up from vendors within the instance and also achievements that are fairly easy to accomplish with Dragonflight levels of gear by being able to just complete certain levels of the instance and achieve certain scores on them and so on and so forth.
And a lot of these mounts, especially that you get from these and the cosmetics as well, are also fairly cool looking in my opinion, at least, and somewhat unique. Now, this is a bit more straightforward compared to some of the other things I have on this list, but I'll have a guide to Torghast linked in the description nonetheless for your reference.
Now, before we move on to number one, I have a quick honorable mention, and that is the series of Glory achievements for old raids and dungeons, such as from Battle for Azeroth, Legion, and even before if you haven't done those already. And these are essentially a series of achievements that have you kill each of the bosses in certain ways in all the raids and dungeons, as well as complete heroic versions of each of the bosses, and most of these are soloable, the achievements that is, even the Battle for Azeroth ones, especially in Dragonflight.
A general rule of thumb is that two expansions earlier is essentially solo content, and that's exactly what Battle for Azeroth is at this point, although there may still be a few select achievements that require two or more players to be able to do just because of these specific boss mechanics and achievement mechanics. But you should be able to recruit a helpful person to your party just for a certain encounter relatively easily, actually.
Or three of each on each of your characters, and the most notable thing is that with the latest Dragonfly patch, the rewards have actually become account-wide. This means that you only have to complete the quest line once to be able to unlock all the alternate and really cool King artifact appearances on all your characters.
All you really need to do is to follow the quest line that starts with Arc Mage Calic or Calicos, who you might be familiar with in Dragonflight. But anyhow, just follow this questline, which will take you through Legion zones, dungeons, and raids, which are all very easily doable anyway with, you know, a Dragonfly or even Shadowlands level character.
That's pretty much all I wanted to cover in today's video about the best easily doable old world content. Let me know what other ideas you might have in the comment section below. I'll definitely answer your questions. With that, thank you so much for watching, and I will catch you in the next video. Peace.
