A big read follows so brace yourself.

    1. Basics

    What the Hell is a Garrison?!

    A garrison is your very own piece of land. It's a foothold on Draenor that serves as your main base of operations! It provides you with everything a standard quest hub would provide (except quests) and much much more. It is presented to all characters at level 90, and it's completely unavoidable. So what's the point?

    Why you NEED the Garrison:
    - to level up ofc, a lot of major quest lines are phased and will not be available to those who haven't set up a Garrison
    - to gain access to Ashran the new world pvp zone (mage portal is only alternative)
    - to start the Legendary quest line at 100
    - to collect Apexis Crystals which act as currency for gear and items gained from WoD factions

    Do note all that I just mentioned can be done from a lvl 1 garrison. If you hate and don't want to deal with Garrisons you can just complete the introduction and forget about it.

    What BENEFITS does a Garrison provide:
    - access to a mine and herb garden that will spawn random Draenor minerals / herbs each day for you to harvest (no profession required to gather them )
    - access to a fishing hut and pet menagerie that offer daily quests
    - access to a large arsenal of buildings that provide a special bonus to you
    - access to profession buildings that provide you with the ability to make selected crafts from a specific profession ( all professions, not only the 2 you got )
    - most buildings provide work orders, which can be used to trade materials for other things ( details for each building later )
    - followers, or and army of them, that can run missions for you and reward you all kinds of stuff ( even raid gear )

    The garrison itself has 3 levels, each increasing the size, number of plots for building, and the appearance of the whole base.

    Garrison can be upgrade to level 2 after you do the following:
    -Alliance: Do Into Twilight, and the 4 that follow, once turned in your garrison guy will spawn to alert you of an invasion, this will then have you quickly upgrade
    -Horde: Finish Return to the Pack

    Garrison can be upgrade to level 3 once you hit 100.

    2. The Buildings

    The core of each base are it's buildings, and your garrison is no different. Players will have a lot of buildings to choose from, as garrisons support only a fixed amount (you can replace a building at any time with another tho). Based on the level of you garrison you will have the following amount of plots available:

    Garrison lvl 1: 1 small + 1 big
    Garrison lvl 2: 2 small + 1 big + 1 medium + bonus buildings
    Garrison lvl 3: 3 small + 2 big + 2 medium

    Do note that the above amounts are totals, not additional plots you get with the upgrade.

    2.1 Small Buildings

    2.5 Blueprints
    Blueprints are needed for you to construct and upgrade buildings. These are purchased from a blueprint vendor in your garrison. Some require a condition to be met before you can buy them.

    Level 1 Blueprints All of these are learned once your Garrison reaches lvl 2 (note that the salvage yard and bonus buildings are unlocked at specific level).

    Level 2 Blueprints All of these become purchasable you met a specific condition. Special mention are the bonus buildings for your alts. If you got a lvl 100 all your alts will be able to purchase lvl 2 blueprints for bonus buildings the moment they create those buildings. All level 2 blueprints have a cost:
    -small buildings cost 750g and require lvl 96 or Talador zone completed
    -medium and bonus buildings cost 1000g and require lvl 98 or Spires of Arak zone completed
    -large buildings cost 1500g and require lvl 100 or Nagrand zone completed

    Level 3 Blueprints These become available on level 100. Each requires a specific achievement to be completed in order to purchase them. Do note that once you complete the achievement all your alts will only need to get to lvl 100 and not complete it again. All lvl 3 blueprints cost 1000g.

    Another interesting thing are books, acquired at the end of each zone story line, that can be traded for some lvl 2 blueprints at Ashran.

    -A Choice to Make. The quest where you choose which building to build in your Nagrand outpost, at lvl 98.


    2.6 How to Choose a Profession Building

    Here I will attempt to suggest a building(s) that best complement a profession, class or purpose. Do note there is no best choice unless you have a profession, but i will mention all the possible choices and their benefits. You should always make a choice based on your personal needs.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Gathering Professions:
    gathering professions don't have a matching building for them, but in return the mats you gather with them fuel other buildings. When deciding which building to pick prioritize them by your own needs.
    Do you need gearing? Pick the one that makes your armor /weapons.
    Do you need gold? Pick the one that will serve a bigger demand (will point out best buildings for gold making per profession).
    Whatever the reason, you sure have choice.

    Mining
    - Engineering Works. Allows creation of toys, pets and useful gadgets, and a gun.Primarily made as a dumb place for the ore you gather. Uses: gold making and gearing (hunters only).
    - The Forge. Allows creation of plate armor and weapons. Primarily made as a dumb place for the ore you gather. Uses: gold making and gearing (plate wearers for armor; any class that benefits from intellect and agility for weapons).
    - Gem Boutique. Allows creation of gems and jewelry. Primarily made as a dumb place for the ore you gather. Uses: gold making and gearing (gems, rings, amulets). BEST FOR GOLD MAKING

    Herbalism
    - Alchemy Lab. Allows creation of consumables. Note that you CAN'T make the best flasks, but you can make regular ones (who are a reagent for best ones). Primarily made as a dumb place for the herbs you gather. Uses: gold making (you CAN sell the mats you get from work orders unlike with other buildings) and personal supply of consumables (pots for Raiders, weak flask and pots for casuals). BEST FOR GOLD MAKING
    - Scribe's Quarters. Allows creation of trinkets, DMF cards and caster weapons. Primarily made as a dumb place for the herbs you gather. Uses: gold making (DMF cards, milled herbs, weapons) and gearing (int wand + off hand, caster staff, agility staff).

    Skinning
    - Tailoring Emporium. Allows creation of cloth gear and cloaks. Primarily made as a dumb place for the Fur you gather. Uses: gold making (gear) and gearing (cloaks for every class, armor for cloth wearers).
    - The Tannery. Allows creation of leather and mail armor and cloaks. Primarily made as a dumb place for the Leather you gather. Uses: gold making (gear) and gearing (cloaks for every class, armor for leather and mail wearers). BEST FOR GOLD MAKING

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Crafting Professions:
    All crafting professions have a matching building. You SHOULD ALWAYS create a building that matches you profession as it provides you with daily supply of a special crafting material via work orders (the only other source of this material is a daily cooldown). These materials are BoP in all buildings, with the exception of the Enchanter's Study(Fractured Temporal Crystal) and Alchemy Lab(Alchemical Catalyst). For a quick overview here is a list of all crafting professions and their matching buildings:

    - Alchemy = Alchemy Lab - Inscription = Scribe's Quarters
    - Blacksmithing = The Forge - Enchanting = Enchanter's Study
    - Leatherworking = The Tannery - Engineering = Engineering Works
    - Tailoring = Tailoring Emporium - Jewelcrafting = Gem Boutique

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For Those Without a Profession:
    Firstly I recommend you to get professions, as they will greatly increase the use of buildings. Still, this section will assume you don't have, and don't intend to have a profession. If you change your mind refer to the above sections.

    For gearing up?
    You will build a building that fits the armor you wear, or the one that makes weapons for you. I will suggest these buildings for each class. It's worth noting that Enchanter's Study and Gem Boutique are a good choice for all classes.

    Death Knight = The Forge (armor and weapons) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets)
    Druid = The Tannery (armor) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets and weapons) or The Forge (weapons)
    Hunter = The Tannery (armor) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets) or Engineering Works(weapons)
    Mage = Tailoring Emporium (armor) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets and weapons) or The Forge (weapons)
    Monk = The Tannery (armor) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets and weapons) or The Forge (weapons)
    Paladin = The Forge (armor and weapons) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets)
    Priest = Tailoring Emporium (armor) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets and weapons) or The Forge (weapons)
    Rogue = The Tannery (armor) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets and weapons) or The Forge (weapons)
    Shaman = The Tannery (armor) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets and weapons) or The Forge (weapons)
    Warlock = Tailoring Emporium (armor) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets and weapons) or The Forge (weapons)
    Warrior = The Forge (armor and weapons) or Scribe's Quarters(trinkets)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For Gold Making:
    Currently all buildings are good for this purpose, however with the release of RAIDS approaching, professions that craft gear will start to fall behind (could change if we start seeing raid level gear being craftable via plans).
    With that out of the way, there are only 3 buildings that will ALWAYS make you gold. Those being:

    Alchemy Lab - because potions and flask will always be needed on a regular basis, and regardless of number of alchemists on your server, the Alchemical Catalyst (needed for best flasks) has a limited production per day.
    Enchanter's Study - because you can enchant all of your gear (except weapon). Like gems bellow, enchants are a long term need on all markets.
    Gem Boutique - because gems will always be needed to fill those sockets. Tho gear with sockets is seen less often then before, gems remain a long term need of the market.


    3. Build Orders

    Build Orders present a strategy how to construct the Garrison. Depending on the Garrison's level and it's intended purpose, there are specific buildings that have proven to be the best for specific types of players. There are so many buildings to choose from, and yet you may have but a few built.

    3.1 Build Order for Leveling
    This guide will suggest the best possible buildings for your Garrison during the Leveling phase.. It will include the first 2 levels of your Garrison. As you level up, some quest will award you with an item that can be exchanged for level 2 blueprints in Ashran, these items are Outpost Building Assembly Notes (small and medium buildings) and Comprehensive Outpost Construction Guide (large buildings). These are awarded at the end of one major quest line in each zone (excluding starting zones).

    Garrison Level 1
    Small: Build an Enchanter's Study. It will allow you to Disenchant all gear that you get from questing.
    Large: Build the Barracks. It will enable additional missions for your followers, providing you with more gold /GR and them with additional exp so they can keep up with you. You will build this building via the fist quests you get when you make a garrison, and you won't really have anything else to choose from at this point.

    Garrison Level 2
    Small: Your 2nd small building should be the Salvage Yard, that can be acquired at level 96. It will allow you to collect Salvage from missions. Do not open these till you upgrade the Salvage Yard to level 2 (that is when they can drop useful loot)! If you are a slow leveler and getting to 96 would take you more then a day, build a profession building till then (make sure to have the said profession).
    Medium: Make a Lumber Mill. It allows you to collect Timber from trees that you come across as you level up. Timber can be converted to GR via work orders at the Lumber Mill.

    3.2 Build Order for Raiding
    This guide will suggest the best possible buildings for your Garrison, specifically intended toward a Raider. This guide is for a level 3 garrison, attained once level 100 is reached. For any lower level garrison, please refer to the Build Order for Leveling guide above.
    Before we proceed, a Raider is one who will or intends to raid the hardest difficulty of CURRENT content (Mythic), all others are CASUAL RAIDERS and can use the below guide with some variations (based on personal flavor).

    Small:
    Salvage Yard. Allows you to gear up you followers so they can run dungeon and raid missions which can award you with gear. Raid missions specifically award you with items that are from a raid difficulty higher then the one you are running (one difficulty above current, if you're raiding Mythic you will also get 1000 gold).
    2 Profession Buildings. If unsure which ones to build, refer to the guide above.

    Medium:
    Trading Post. Allows you to trade GR for any materials, so you can make consumables. It also allows you to trade random materials each day for GR via work orders.
    Lumber Mill. Keeps you well supplied with GR. Do note that Barn is better if you have already unlocked the lvl 3 blueprints.

    Large:
    The Barracks. Increases follower limit to 25, allowing more missions at once.
    Bunker. Can help gear up followers via work orders. Provides you with a free Seal of Tempered Fate each week (bonus roll).

    3.3 Build Order for Gold Making
    This guide will suggest the best possible buildings for your Garrison, specifically intended toward gold making. This guide is for a level 3 garrison, attained once level 100 is reached. For any lower level garrison, please refer to the Build Order for Leveling guide above. This guide will focus on your MAIN character. If you have ALTS that you plan on using for gold making, use this guide for your MAIN and the Altoholic guide below for ALTS.

    Small:
    3 Profession Buildings. If unsure which ones to build, refer to the guide above.

    Medium:
    Trading Post. Allows you to trade GR for any materials, these can then be sold. Also gives you a Auction House in your garrison.
    Lumber Mill. Allows you to gather Timber. Turn Timber into GR via work orders. Turn GR into materials at the Trading Post.

    Large:
    The Barracks. Increases follower limit to 25, allowing more missions at once.
    Mage Tower / Stables. Both can reduce travel time around Draenor, allowing you to get to your farming spots quicker. Choose based on personal preference.

    3.4 Build Order for Altoholics
    This guide will suggest the best possible buildings for your Garrison, specifically intended toward those whom have and love their alts (altoholics). This guide is for a level 3 garrison, attained once level 100 is reached. For any lower level garrison, please refer to the Leveling guide. This guide will focus on your ALTS. If you have a MAIN, use either the Gold Making or Raider guide for your MAIN. Alts will be split into 3 types: alts used for gold making; Raider alts; PvP alts. If you have alts that you wanna raid or pvp with, use the respective guide for them.

    ALTS USED FOR GOLD MAKING

    Small:
    3 Profession Buildings. If unsure which ones to build, refer to the guide above.

    Medium:
    Trading Post. Allows you to trade GR for any materials, these can then be sold. Also gives you a Auction House in your garrison.
    Lumber Mill / Barn. Build different one on each alt. Both require around the same time investment. Lumber Mill lets you gather Timber to trade for GR via work order, and then trade that GR for any material at the Trading Post. Barn allows collection of Savage Blood used to craft all epics, some of which you can sell. It might be a good idea to start with a Barn at 100 on a few alts to quickly unlock the lvl 3 blueprints.

    Large:
    The Barracks. Increases follower limit to 25, allowing more missions at once.
    Mage Tower / Stables. Both can reduce travel time around Draenor, allowing you to get to your farming spots quicker. Choose based on personal preference.

    Abuse your Bonus buildings on as many alts as possible. This will supply you with HUGE amounts of ore and herbs for free.


    3.5 Build Order for PvP
    This guide will suggest the best possible buildings for your Garrison, specifically intended toward those who plan to PvP. This guide is for a level 3 garrison, attained once level 100 is reached. For any lower level garrison, please refer to the Build Order for Leveling guide above. This guide will focus on your MAIN character and any ALT(s) who will be used for PvP.

    Small:
    3 Profession Buildings. If unsure which ones to build, refer to the guide above.

    Medium:
    Gladiator's Sanctum. Helps you gear up. Remember no bones from battlegrounds.
    Trading Post / Lumber Mill. Make based on personal preference / needs

    Large:
    Gearworks. Everything from this building can be used on Ashran.
    2nd large building is chosen based on personal preference.

    5.4 Garrison Invasion Guide

    A Garrison Invasion is an event, that once started, will force waves of enemies to invade and try to destroy your garrison.

    How to start an invasion

    When you kill level 100 mobs (in the areas for Apexis Crystal Quests), you have a chance that the enemies will prepare to attack your garrison in retaliation. The number of mobs appears to be random to trigger an invasion ( 300 - 500 mobs).
    At this point, your commander by the Town Hall will have a quest for you--this lasts until the next weekly reset, you do not need to complete the quest asap. To start an invasion, talk to Sergeant Crowler or Sergeant Grimjaw. They will have a prompt to prepare to battle a faction. You can have multiple invasions triggered at once.
    There are 6 types of invasions: Ogre, Shadow Council, Shadowmoon, Botani, Iron Horde, Goren.
    Bellow is a map indicating where to kill mobs to start a particular invasion.



    Invasion Stages and Points

    The invasion has the following stages:
    -Invasion - Follow the sergeant
    -Assault - defeat the assault.
    -The holdout - endure the assault. This part is timed for ~8 minutes on beta.
    -The calm- go to the town center
    -Final stage - kill a boss

    -The enemy assaults a Garrison building—attack them to interrupt the cast.
    -A terrified townsfolk runs out of safety. They are marked with a green arrow over their head and you run up to them to move them away.
    -An infiltrator from the opposite faction is in your Garrison. These have a hefty bit of HP.

    6. Missions
    Missions are special assignments that you followers can run. They are started from the Mission Board in you garrison’s main building, and become available once you obtain your fist follower.
    There are a lot of missions and all of them are different based on level, type, follower count, ilvl, duration.
    There is no cap on the amount of missions you can have active at a time, you are only limited by the number of followers you have available to assign on them. Missions will constantly respawn over the day and there is no way to force a new mission to appear (like an internal cooldown or something). All missions offer a reward. You may either complete or fail a mission, and it entirely depends on you followers (there will also be a success chance displayed in % before you start a mission). Starting a mission costs GR, anywhere from 10-100 per mission.
    To increase you chance of success, assign followers with specific abilities to it. If you are able to counter all enemy abilities you will be guaranteed to not fail.
    There are many factors that determine mission success, and they are the following:
    -Follower level and ilvl (at 100)
    -Follower abilities and those they counter with them
    -Party composition, area, duration of the mission
    -Race of the enemy you will fight

    The list of all available missions can be seen here.

    6.1 Mission Types
    There are a few different mission types. These are:
    -Rare Missions. These appear sometimes, they are harder, require more followers, and have better rewards.
    -Fight Missions. The most common kind, they simply require you to kill a mob(s).
    -Patrol Missions. Send your followers on patrol around the garrison or an area. You need level 1 barracks to unlock these.
    -ilvl Missions. Require a minimum ilvl on your followers to complete.
    -Exploration Missions. Send you followers to explore a zone.
    -Treasure Missions. These reward a lot of gold. You need lvl 3 Inn to unlock them.
    -Profession Missions. Reward you with Rush Orders, allowing instant completion of 5 work orders for said building. Requires a lvl 3 building to unlock missions for it.
    -Bounty Missions. Unlocked by completing the corresponding bounty daily quest in your garrison.

    Missions also have a different duration, which can range anywhere from 30 minutes to 48 hours. Each mission will reward you with something (explained below).

    6.2 Mission Rewards
    All missions give rewards once completed. Mission rewards can be the following:
    -Follower Exp. All missions give a base amount of exp to follower(s) who run them, this amount can be see on the start mission interface. Exp is rewarded regardless of the fact did you fail the mission or not.
    -Bonus Follower Exp. Some missions award additional exp to followers if completed. The exp icon in the reward tab will be green.
    -Character Exp. A lot of missions will award your character with exp once completed. This reward is equal to a quest (1-2% max exp based on mission).
    -Currency. These reward a random currency when complete (apexis, honor, conquest, bonus roll, GR…).
    -Gold. Some missions award gold on completion. Treasure Hunter missions award a lot of gold.
    -Followers. Some missions will award you with a follower contract when completed. Using the contract will recruit the said follower.
    -Character Gear. Some missions will award you with gear! the ilvl of it depends of the ilvl requirement of the mission (645 ilvl missions award raid loot)
    -Follower Updates. These will permanently boost the ilvl of your followers armor or weapon (only usable on lvl 100 followers).
    -Vanity Items. All kinds of random stuff and toys.
    -Reputation Items. These will grant reputation with a specific faction once used.


    7. Followers (basics)
    Followers are your Garrison army. They are recruited via various way: quests, achievements, randomly found in the world, via the inn….
    Followers are used for Missions or to work in a building. All followers can run missions, but only those whom have the appropriate profession can be place to work in the matching building. You may have a maximum of 20 active followers at any time (25 with lvl 3 barracks), if you have more you will need to deactivate the excess. A deactivated follower can be activated again for a fee of 250gold, one follower per day.
    Each follower has abilities or traits, and each follower starts at a different level. Followers can level up to 100 and even equip better gear to increase their ilvl. Followers can only level up by running missions.
    Followers also have a different quality (similar to battle pets and items). Better quality allows a follower to have more abilities. These range as follows: uncommon (green) starts with 1-2 abilities, rare (blue) can have 3-4, epic (purple) can have 5-7. Bellow you can find the post that covers all possible abilities and traits.
    Since there are so many followers in game atm (around 500) you may find the full list here. A more detailed guide was posted by wowhead taht goes deep into followers, it can be found here.

    7.2 Traits and Abilities
    Traits and Abilities are divided into 10 groups:
    -Environment Preference which increase success chance when fighting in a specific area. Full list.
    -Racial Preference which increase success chance when fighting a specific race. Full list.
    -Experience Gain. Increases the exp gained by all followers sent on that mission. Full list.
    -GR Gain. Increases the GR reward gained from the mission. Full list.
    -Mission Duration. Reduces the duration of the mission by a %. Full list.
    -Success Chance. Increases success chance of the mission based on it’s duration or number of followers. Full list.
    -Party Composition. Increases the success chance of the mission if a member of a specific race is assigned to the mission as well. Full list.
    -Treasure. Increases the chance for a treasure as reward. Full list.
    -Counters. Your trait counters the opponents ability. Increases success chance on missions in which this is the case. Full list.
    -Professions. Allows the follower to be assigned to work in the matching building. Full list.


    8. FaQ Section

    Q: Are followers account bound?
    A: Nop, you have to reacquire them on all characters.

    Q: Do I need to redo all the achievements for lvl 3 buildings?
    A: Nop, once done the said blueprint will be available for purchase to all characters.

    Q: What's the fastest way to get all those achievements?
    A: Alts are fastest. Build different buildings on alts, do achievements related to those buildings.
    If you don't have / do alts, fastest way is one by one on main. Tho this way is long and expensive in terms of garrison resources.

    Q: Why are barracks the best?
    A: During leveling they will provide additional missions to level up you followers. In the end it will provide you with 5 additional follower slots allowing more missions to be run at once (when you get raid missions this will be good)

    Q: Lumber Mill vs Barn?
    A: LM provides you with GR, and is crucial for those who plan to do garrisons without alts (otherwise you'd run out of GR quickly);
    Barn is better for end game and it should be there for raiders. Trading Post beats LM, so never consider Barn + LM combo.

    Q: How does an altoholic get most out of their garrison?
    A: Level a bunch of alts to 92, then you will unlock mine and lvl 2 garrison. Build barracks, LM, 2 profession buildings. Make sure to fill all the LM work orders on all alts. Afterwords rush you main to 100. In main's garrison make trading post + barn, barracks + stables, salvage yard + 2 prof buildings. Next step is getting alts to 96 to unlock herb garden and salvage yard. Keep filling all possible work orders and spam missions. Final part is getting alts to 100. When you do an alts garrison needs to help you with the following getting all lvl 3 blueprints.
    In the end refer to the above mentioned end game build order for altoholics.

    Q: Does the follower's level determine the Yield from work orders when he is assigned into a building?
    A: It does. A 90-99 follower has 50% chance to increase the yield, where a lvl 100 follower has 100% chance.









    EDIT: Please note that all of the end game set up are NOT FINAL. It all depends of Blizzard, and I will keep up with the updates as they come to the beta.
    Once we get confirmed 6.0.2 patch notes i will adjust accordingly. Remember ALL IS SUBJECTIVE TO CHANGE due to the fact that it's beta.

    EDIT 2: Profession Buildings have been added! And build orders too!

    EDIT 3: Outposts have been added! Also the FaQ section has started!

    EDIT 4: Table of Content added

    EDIT 5: The OP has been upgraded to look better, and provide much more info.

    EDIT 6: Blueprints section added.

    EDIT 7: Guides added.

    EDIT 8: Added Missions and Followers sections containing basics on both.

    EDIT 9: Added Build order for PvP. Added a clarification to the Raider Build Order.

    EDIT 10: Added How to Chose a Profession Building section.

    EDIT 11: Added 6.1 changes!

    Did not read yet but thanks in advance. Guides are always appreciated.

    Garrisons are so confusing to me. Thanks for the post!

    if this is to be comprehensive guide, you might want to adjust for different things people might want to get out of their garrison set up.
    if you look here - link we are working on an optimal set up for a raider - the building values are quite different to ones you suggest.

    I can only assume that there would be a completely different set up for altoholics and people with only one toon, and ofc a setup to maximize AH and gold profits.

    theres a question ive had about garrisons that i havent really seen answered.

    i know you can have up to 25 (or around that) active followers and that they recently changed it so that you can collect all of them you just have 25 active.

    what happens to the inactive ones? i know they cant do missions and stuff but do they just disappear? or do they still walk/stand around inside the garrison?

    is it basically like they dont exist until you activate them?

    Forgot to add raider / alt / AH end game set ups. The one mentioned is for build order till 100. Working on end game will be here in a few mins.
    Also the bunker is useless as it only saves you one turn in, which isn't huge. It's on par with others, so personal preff i guess

    If you got over 20 (25 with lvl 3 racks) you can't start missions. you must disable the excess ones. They will be marked as inactive in follower list.
    Not sure about seeing them in garrison, but you can't use them.
    you can reactivate any follower for 250g. Once per day

    Very nice guide. This helps clarrify a few things that the ones on WoWhead had left me wondering about.

    Why do you value the store house so high? If I understand it correctly (and please correct me if I'm wrong!) it just allows you to queue more work orders. It doesn't speed up work orders or allow them to be done in parallel. So the only bonus is that you don't have to log in that often to queue more work orders, right? And since most players will log in each day, that bonus is useless.

    This is also confirmed here: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...1#post29717330

    They changed work orders a lot lately. Only reason i value it is cuz it's not yet final :P . Will wait for official patch notes.
    If they allow parallel completion then it stays.
    If not a 3rd profession building would work, since trading post is there.

    Good guide. Assigning a follower to a building increases work order yield instead of making work orders faster. It still takes 4 hours per work order even when you have a follower assigned. Normally you get 1 item per work order from your profession buildings. With a follower assigned you can get 2 per work order. In previous builds follower lvl and quality influenced the yield too, but I'm not sure if that's still true.

    I think you're overselling the usefulness of the Storehouse. Having bank access is nice and all, but getting more work orders is useless unless you're regularly going several days without logging into WoW. There's unique benefits for all small profession buildings with a follower assigned. For example the Alchemy Lab gives free potions while the Forge removes durability damage from combat (but not from dying).

    They have said that work orders are supposed to complete 1 / day in which case the storehouse is 100% useless
    Then again, the change to +15...
    With level 3 storehouse and level 3 whatever you are doing work order at, you could queue 20 days which makes no sense

    Thx Corrected the working part
    Didn't yet post the Profession buildings, don't have more time tonight, so will post it in the morning.
    The Storehouse thing stays cuz of speculation that they will change something. Like allow parallel completion or faster orders etc.. as said at the end nothing is final and this guide will keep up with updates till i seal it when the official patch notes drop.
    If they don't allow these stuff then you're right and a 3rd profession building wins

    Makes a lot of sense for people that are going on vacation, or have other obligations that keep em from maintaining more frequently. Altoholics might appreciate it too. Set it, and forget it for a while. No toon hopping for some time.
    There are benefits to it.

    So this means that you automatically get the mine, herb, pet and fishing buildings and don't have to choose between them for your plots?
