The Barracks takes up a Large plot which can also be used for a Mage Tower / Spirit Lodge, Gnomish Gearworks / Goblin Workshop, Stables, or Dwarven Bunker / War Mill. Once upgraded to Tier 3, your garrison will have two Large plots available.

This building is good for leveling followers quickly, having more active followers, having a bodyguard in Draenor, and some garrison visual changes.

  • Level 1 - Unlocks patrol missions. Patrol missions have higher than normal follower experience rewards.
  • Level 2 - Allows a follower with the bodyguard trait to accompany you as a guardian in Draenor zones.
  • Level 3 - Increases your follower limit by 5 and grants access to racial guards and banners.

Level 3 Unlock
The Level 3 version of this building is unlocked by completing the Patrolling Draenor achievement, which requires you to complete 50 garrison patrol missions.

The Level 2 Barracks will give you a bodyguard in Draenor that will assist you in combat. There are currently five followers that have the necessary Bodyguard ability.

Each follower has their own reputation with three levels of 10k reputation each. Killing mobs in Draenor will give you ~11 reputation per kill. Abilities are unlocked at the second level of reputation, followed by perks at the third.
