Yes, more garrison questions. What can you do?

loli.gigis asked:

How long after you get an invasion quest does it go away? Is it with the reset or after 7 days?

Last Week on Massively: Zombies incoming

H1Z1
This post originally appeared on Massively from Editor-in-Chief Brianna Royce. At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. If you missed a big MMO story last week, you've come to the right post.

SOE announced this week that its post-apoc zombie survival sandbox MMO (do we have an acronym for that yet?) H1Z1 will enter early access testing on January 15th. Like Landmark's beta before it, H1Z1's early access represents a serious test phase, says studio boss John Smedley. Tickets for early entry will run you just under 20 bucks.

And don't forget Massively's ongoing 2014 awards, the first seven of which have already been announced. We're leading up to our MMO of the year on Friday!

Read on for a look at the rest of this week's top MMO stories.

The Queue: Azerothian tobacco

Gallywix, you need to see a dentist.

Lenneth asked:

So I'm wondering how do players who haven't gone hardcore into professions/get lucky with auctioning boes make decent gold in WoD? I had a lot of success with mining before the IoT was introduced, then I capitalized on on the mats from the troll rares. Aside from maybe a small handful of gold from garrison missions I'm not amassing any wealth and that really hurts my serious mount collecting efforts.

Paragon scores world first mythic Highmaul clear

Paragon scored the world first clear of mythic Highmaul this weekend. Method, the first to slay 6 out of 7 Highmaul bosses, was anticipated to finish first, but Paragon came from behind to win the day. Congratulations to Paragon!

Hopefully this means their raid team will be able to take a break for the holidays -- assuming the pursuit of mythic gear doesn't override their celebrations. Blackrock Foundry isn't slated to open until early 2015.

Trade your Restored Artifacts for Archaeology Fragments on Draenor

We've reached the point in Warlords of Draenor where many players have hit the level cap and have begun delving into alternative activities such as archaeology. Our time spent in garrison general chat has revealed many players are unaware they don't need to return to Pandaria to trade their Restored Artifacts for Archaeology Fragments. For that, you can visit Ashran. More, the vendors in Ashran allow you to trade your Restored Artifacts for Pandaren, Mogu, and Mantid artifacts, which cannot be done in Pandaria. The Alliance is looking for Grakis in Stormshield. For the Horde, you'll want Srikka in Warspear. Both NPCs are arakkoa near the town's archaeology trainer.

Grakis and Srikka are also the NPCs that sell Draenor's treasure maps. If you're having trouble tracking down the last few treasures you need -- or don't want to bother hunting them down unassisted -- make sure you buy those. Each treasure map will run you 200 gold. Of course, you could do that with addons free of charge, so consider these guys the addon-free version.

The Queue: Chili-free zone

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Alex Ziebart will be your host today.

We only have a few questions to cover today because this is not a column featuring chili recipes.

MTA asked:

What do you think of WoD's reps? I'm quite disappointed that Blzzard have yet again pushed it to the extreme. For years running now, I've had to do almost the exact same type of thing to get reps. In WoD it's all about killing thousands upon thousands of mobs which gets boring really fast. I wouldn't mind if only one rep was like that but not all 4 that I'm doing. MoP was mainly dailies that ticked me off too as was Cata and the dungeon tabards. Am I asking too much to have a mixture of rep gains?

Last Week in Massively: Revan returns in SWTOR

SWTOR
This post originally appeared on Massively from Editor-in-Chief Brianna Royce. At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. If you missed a big MMO story last week, you've come to the right post.

Star Wars: The Old Republic's Shadow of Revan expansion launched for early-access players this week, adding new locations and storylines, revamping skill trees, selling strongholds for a song, and nuking training costs. And yes, it's that Revan. Massively's SWTOR expert Larry Everett scoped out the expansion ahead of launch and judged it worthy even for soloers.

Everyone thank Adam for covering for me yesterday. And now I'm taking his place today!

Bugboy asked:

I'm sure this has been asked and answered, but...well, my apologies for not taking note before. For the legendary quest, do we need to collect and keep 4986 apexis crystals, or can we spend them along the way?
