I have to admit, I'm having a tough time deciding how I'm going to lay out my first garrison. I was pretty set on having the Inn
and Trading Post
as my two medium buildings. At first glance, the Barn
seemed kind of lackluster to me until I learned that it's the only way to get Savage Blood
, which is used to upgrade crafted gear to higher item levels. I want to upgrade my engineering goggles and gun without spending a ton of gold so I decided I'm probably going to use the Barn, at least at the beginning. Now if I'm set on the Barn, what other medium building do I get rid of? I'm a big collector so I really like those daily quests in the Inn (plus the extra followers), but I also like the sound of the Trading Post. Decisions, decisions.
I'm the kind of player who likes to go full tilt at the beginning of an expansion. I'll min-max anything I can to get a head start. In my opinion, garrisons can definitely be min-maxed when it comes to things like making gold or getting epic gear as fast as possible. Then there's buildings which are purely for fun or convenience. Any time I come up with a garrison build, I always seem to want a Stables
If you want to start planning out your garrison and you don't have the beta to play around with, there's also the Wowhead Garrison Calculator
. Will you just pick whatever buildings sound fun, or are you researching your options beforehand?
