What are Islands?
Island Expeditions are special 3-player scenarios introduced in Battle For Azeroth. The goal of an Island Expedition is simple, to obtain Azerite found on an uncharted Island. The exact method of doing so however is up to the players. The Islands you will sail to are filled with enemies native to the Island, and enemies not-so native to the Island. Every enemy you kill, every chest you loot, every special event you complete all will award Azerite that is loaded up on your ship. With these expeditions being all about gaining Azerite, they are designed to be the most efficient method of obtaining Azerite for your Heart of Azeroth.
An unexplored and unclaimed Island does come with unknown dangers. You will find unexpected enemies on the Islands ranging from Murlocs and Kobolds to Dragons and Faceless ones.
As you battle against the unknown, there will be one set of faces that you will be all-too familiar with however. It so happens that another 3 member team of the opposing faction has discovered the Island at the same time as you. You will be racing against members of the other faction to collect as much Azerite as your ship can hold.

Strategies for All Islands
While Island expeditions have map variation, there are still generic tactics for all of them. That's where the
Island Expeditions Strategy Guide
There are 7 total Islands players may encounter on Island Expeditions. Each visit to an Island will have many elements randomized such as enemy types and location, events, and starting locations.
Each week there are 3 Islands out of the 7 that are available throughout the week, these will be shown on the Expedition Map Scouting Report. Once the weekly reset occurs 3 new Islands will be available for the week.
Island Advanced AI Teams
On Normal, Heroic, and Mythic difficulties of Island Expeditions, players will be racing against a 3 member team of NPCs themed on the opposite faction. These NPCs work with an Advanced AI that makes them work completely different from other NPCs and closer to player behavior.
Some teams you can face off against include
Island Events and Invasions
Random events and invasions
pop up on all Islands and this guide details all the variations that can occur. These events can exist anywhere between the form of bonus objectives where you need to rescue a trapped friendly NPC to large scale invasions of NPCs like Vrykul or Dragons.
These events maintain their own unique theme that is different from the rest of the Island theme. So instead of the usual druidic creatures of the Verdant Wilds like bears and cats, you may also encounter raging fire elementals or twilight dragons in the Wilds as well. When these events activate, they will crowd-control all mobs near their spawning location.
Seafarer Dubloons and Consumables
Island Expedition teams have no role restrictions which theoretically means teams could consist of 3 damage dealers, 3 tanks, or 3 healers. Due to the immense amount of approaches you can take to winning the race to 6000 Azerite and the amount of resources available on the Island, all group compositions have a chance of winning.
as well as special items and shrines that can be found while on the Island can help neutralize threats and make your composition shine.
