Island Expeditions Rewards

Island Expeditions are special 3-player scenarios introduced in Battle For Azeroth, where players sail to uncharted Islands in order to gather Azerite. In this guide you will learn what type of mobs are related to which rewards, and you are encouraged to use the Table of Contents to quickly navigate to the collectibles that you might be interested in such as Mounts, Pets, Toys, Quests and Transmog.

Island Expeditions Rewards are themed off the Island Denizens, Invaders and Creatures that appear during an Island Expedition. For example if pirates are present on the island and you decide to defeat them, then at the end of the expedition you'll have a chance to receive https://www.wowhead.com/item=163586/squawks, https://www.wowhead.com/item=163798/captain-nibs, https://www.wowhead.com/quest=53177/broken-compass and other pirate collectibles as a reward.

Targeting Rewards in Island Expeditions

Originally Posted by Blizzard (Source)In Tides of Vengeance, all players on an Expedition will have a chance to receive cosmetic rewards based on the island’s inhabitants, rather than which enemies were specifically defeated. That chance will again be higher on higher difficulties, but there will be no need to strategize around invaders. The most efficient way to receive cosmetic rewards will be whatever tactics cause you to complete the Island quickly, on the highest difficulty that you’re comfortable.

Choosing the Difficulty

While there is a higher chance to get loot on higher difficulties, you should run Island Expeditions on Normal since that's the easiest and less time consuming method to farm them. Group up with a geared tank that can pull multiple packs and you should complete them within 5 to 8 minutes.

New Rewards in Tides of Vengeance

In Patch 8.1 Tides of Vengeance new Dubloons Vendors are being added to the game where you will be able to exchange your Seafarer's Dubloons for mounts, pets, toys and transmog items.

The vendors are Captain Klarisa for Alliance in Boralus Harbor, and Captain Zen'taga for Horde in the Port of Zandalar.

Random Drops

New Mounts and Battle Pets are also being added as rewards which you can get at the end of an Island Expedition.
