A multitude of changes are coming with the next WoW expansion, Warlords of Draenor. One of the additions to the game will be the garrison – a personal home base which players can build and upgrade as they level.
Butt-Covering Disclaimer: Since the expansion is currently in beta, the information in this article is subject to change. I have no control over this. Don’t yell at me. Seriously, stop it.
Getting it Started
Shortly after arriving in Draenor, you can take a quest to start construction of your garrison. To begin with, you’ll have a town hall, an innkeeper, a flight master, vendors, and repairs. You can add more buildings, and recruit followers who will do missions or jobs for you. Or you could just ignore it; so far it doesn’t seem to be a strictly necessary part of gameplay, although it has strong benefits.
