Garrison followers for professions

I’ve really liked garrisons in Warlords; it’s good to have a home away from home – moreso now that I have dwarfs guarding the garrison of my main. It’s a little slice of Ironforge on Draenor!

The garrison has buildings associated with professions and if you are doing professions you’ll want to have the relevent buildings – if nothing else it’ll generate more of the daily cooldown materials every creation profession has.

You can also assign followers to buildings if they have the associated trait and doing so increases the yield from the building. At level 90 a follower will increase the yield by 50%, rising as they level to 100% at level 100.

I’ve been leveling up the followers I’ll be assigning to buildings since if they’re assigned to a building you can’t send them on a mission unless you unassign them.

The whilst some of the followers below are cross-faction, most are from an Alliance view of the world.

A word of warning – be careful when using items like Supreme Manual of Dance or Hearthstone Strategy Guide – these replace existing traits on a follower with other abilities; it is possible to remove the profession traits a follower has!

We waited for Warlords

Since October I’ve been keeping a ToDo list here – see Category: Waiting for expansion for all the posts – mostly so that I’d get stuff done whilst we waited for Warlords to be released.

With Draenor so close, how well have I done?

Soloing in a 6.0 World – Personal Experience

In Soloing in a 6.0 world I went over some of the older raids which are soloable now.

I thought I’d give a quick update from my experiences with actually running the raids over a number of different characters.

Details, details!

Waiting for Warlords: progress report, 2014-10-27

Whilst we wait for Warlords – Progress report update!

Most of this week has been spent soloing old raids for rare drop mounts – the changes in 6.0.2 made more bosses accessible to more of my characters.

Progress so far!

Soloing in a 6.0 world

Whilst people have always soloed older raids – I’ve farmed a number of rare drop raid mounts already – one of the concerns with the item squish Warlords brought in was how easy it would be to solo older content.

Blizzard did say they’d address this – they didn’t want to stop people soloing old raids for transmog, mounts, older legendaryies.

So how successful have they been?

Well, from the number of times Rhonin keeps on going about our lives being worth living in Dalaran – he’s yelling it almost non-stop – I think a lot of people are running older raids!

… apparently there is a queue of people waiting for Rhonin to yell about the defiance of our very makers before they can send reply code alpha

For some personal experiences with different classes doing this, please see Soloing in a 6.0 World – Personal Experience for how a variety of different classes and gear levels faired.
