Garrison Campaign Quests Active
Garrison Campaign quests are now active and the one you get each week appears to be random.

One option you may get is from Khadgar's Servant in your garrison, which sends you to Shadowmoon Valley for a short quest chain that rewards Sargerei Disguise (which is not a Toy).

    It's funny when you look at the start of WoW. Games launch now with triple those numbers and decline, but people still say WoW is a dying game.
