A Professions in Garrisons question is on, as part of Blog Azeroth Shared Topic.
I noticed – or could not find – any topics relating to the information about WOD!! I don’t understand!!
So with that in mind, here is one of my first questions:
With you being able to build a third profession area – what are you likely to choose? Have you got all professions covered by alts so are just going to focus on money making? Did you take professions specifically for mounts/raiding or some other purpose but didn’t really want to?
Is there a profession you want for specific reasons?
I thought the professions aspect of the garrison idea was going to introduce a more Star-Wars-ToR-ish feel, where your NPC helpers go off and do mini-quests as part of assisting with professions (official Garrisons source, and the artCraft blogpost). Maybe that was what I wanted, and I’m almost certain that something I’ll use.
The garrison will also replace some of the daily activity which was part of the Half Hill Farm in Mists of Pandaria. That might mean a work order area like the current daily farming, or might mean a wider approach which is more like your personal home within the game. I hope it is a home within the setting, as it is something lacking from a story perspective.
They are also going to reflect major achievements, and be “sharable” to others. That is pretty interesting; especially if a degree of customisation is allowed.
In terms of my professions (the question asked in BA) I have almost all profs covered by Alts, but those alts take ages to catch-up to current max. For example the MoP professions have been available for a very long time, but I am still raising my Inscription and Jewelcrafting.
Talk Azeroth had a summary of the recent Blue Tweets on Garrisons too, worth a gander.
Some pretty cool building specs are coming in. “City Portals” is a Mage Tower spec that opens ports to every major city. Source
We should be clear that garrisons is not about decorating and placing furniture. Gameplay is our focus. Source
Buildings need to be unlocked and upgraded to get specs. Mage Tower is no different. Source
We do have Monuments that you can place from achievements. Source
If a garrison helps me, then that is brilliant. Happy killing, TyphoonAndrew

Some people are loving the ideas of garrisons. I’m sure I’ll like it, just not super excited about it yet.
I’m looking forward to finding out more about the garrisons. Here’s hoping to beta news soon.
