Just killed Shar'thos for world quest, and there's two issues:
1) World quest did not complete/give credit
2) I received gold for loot, and gold for my bonus roll.
I was having some trouble getting credit for this kill... after messing with some addons, I realized it was probably something on my end causing interference. Sure enough, ElvUI was out of date, preventing me from completing this quest. Updated to v.10.29 and had no issue after.
Otherwise, this is a pretty clean fight if you have a good size group. Stay out of the fire, avoid the frontal cone attacks.
This quest appears to have a completion bug of some sort. I submitted a bug report to blizzard after experiencing the following along with another guild friend:
1st kill -
I did not get world quest credit and received no loot.
Guild friend did not get world quest credit either, but did receive loot.
2nd kill -
Neither of us received world quest credit or received any loot.
3rd kill - NOTE: We were the ones to tag the boss to start the fight this time
I received world quest credit and loot.
Guild friend finally received world quest credit but did not receive loot.
I can confirm that all my add-ons were updated before I logged in today and I did not have to disable them to finish the world quest. Nothing changed between our attempts except that we initiated the fight on the last attempt when we received world quest credit. I'm not sure if tagging the boss had anything to do with it, just included that note here in case others experience similar or can debunk it as a possibility.
Similar to others, did this world quest the first time, no luck. Was not in a group (raid or party). Made a second attempt joining a raid group using the finder tool and the quest completed as expected.
Being present when he spawns seems to help make the world quest activate.
It seems if you help at all during the fight you do not get quest credit for some reason. The 1st time I killed him I was there the whole fight, did not die to anything & got my 50g from loot & bonus roll, but no Order Resources. I alt tabbed to make a ticket & when I came back he was almost dead & I when he did die I got credit & got the 1k Order Resources. This is surely "working as intended." Thanks blizz.
Seriously bugged - got loot and bonus roll on 3 toons, not one piece! WQ showed 740g per completion - did not get that on any toon either.
IF WQ IS NOT COMPLETING FOR YOU?
WQ WILL BE ACTIVATED if you are there present when dragon spawns
, so just wait for a group to kill it and then stay there waiting for the new spawn.
It's not because you didnt help during the fight or because you died or you don't need keep runing around trying to find the rigth spot to force WQ to pop, it is just not being activated when you enter in the zone if the dragon is alrdy there, that's the reason why some people says "I got the credit in the second kill".
Silly right? but that's what worked for me and my friends, if someone found other way just let me know. Good Luck everyone.

This was bugged for me, killed it and the first time the world quest was not done. Had to logoff and on and kill it again...
A short video on getting to Shar'thos.
is a new Legion world boss, it's located in Val'sharah, coordinates are
. Fly to Temple of Elune and go north, there you'll see a small bridge. Cross the bridge and there you'll easy find the boss. Instead of many other world bosses, this one isnt easy because of
spell. Also, as most part of dragons in game, he uses tail to deal damage and breathes with fire.

If this quest is bugged for you, try logging off then back on. The key is to make sure the area is highlighted in your mini-map.
As of 7.1.5, if you use the "Auto Join Group" button, and join a group, you will get credit for the kill, and for the World Quest, even if Shar'thos is half-dead when you join.
