Garrisons: A Collection Of Lesser-Known Facts

A Collection of Tips

While leveling up, I’ve learned a lot about garrisons. I wanted to share some of the lesser-known, hard-to-find, and sometimes just fun tips! If you’d like some full-blown guides, head over to our infographic and resources.

Enchanter’s Study: DE with Friends

If you build an enchanter’s study, your friends can visit your garrison and DE their soulbound stuff!! To have someone join your garrison, start a party (or in a current party, make sure you are the leader). Then your friends right click on their own character portrait and choose ‘view leader’s garrison.’  Go to their enchanter study and start DE’ing!

I was able to do this with a level 1 enchanter’s study.

Alchemy Lab: BoE Reagents

You can only make Greater Flasks if you have Alchemy as one of your character’s main professions. However, we just found out that the alchemical catalysts (the reagents to make the Greater Flasks) are BoE. The work orders for your Alchemy Lab produce Alchemical Catalysts. So stock up and send to your Alchemy friends 🙂

Other Professions

I’m doing more research in between playing and other updates for our site. Having a Gem Boutique in my own Garrison, I can confirm that Taladite Crystals from work orders are BoP.

Portal to Ashran with Level 3 Garrison

Once you upgrade your garrison to level 3, there is a tower next to your mines. At the top of that tower is a portal to Ashran 🙂

Bunker / War Mill Before Nagrand

If you’re looking to get raid ready asap, get a Bunker / War Mill before you hit Nagrand. Why? Starting at (buiding) level 1, it doubles your chance to get upgraded gear from quest rewards. That makes upgraded Nagrand rewards iLevel 615 (rare) or 630 (epic). You can get this (large) building when you upgrade your garrison to level 3 OR by bulldozing your existing large building (likely the barracks). For reference, Heroic dungeons reward level 630 gear.

This building also gives you 1 bonus roll per week at level 3.

Missions: XP for Your Character

Take a moment to let this click (it took me a while)… you can get character XP as a reward from some missions (not follower XP… XP for you, your character!) Look for the purple XP icon. It’s rewarded upon successful mission completion, all at once.Garrsion reward character XP

  1. I’ve set my hearthstone to Ashran, then I can hop into the portal back to Orgrimmar if I need bank access.

    • Can you elaborate? (I haven’t had caffeine yet today). If you HS to ashran, why would you need to go to org for bank?

      • Maybe I missed something.. Is there a bank in Ashran?! 😀 When I want to drop things into my reagents tab of the bank, I’ve been hearthing to Ashran, then running over and taking the portal to Org. From there, hit the bank, then use my garrison hearthstone to get back to Draenor. I figured that’s the way Blizzard wanted it with all the “Adventure to a strange land that you may never return from…” warning at the beginning of the expac.

        • There are bank tellers in the big building just north of the totem pole near the flight path. Or maybe just south… I have to picture which way I’m facing when I fly in. But you run down the path after flying in, see a big totem pole and it’s on the other side of that. Bank tellers are on the right when you walk in.

          • you need to get one of the cloaks near the guild vendor that will teleport you to org if you want to go there and yes there is a bank in Ash. remember to ask a grunt and they will tell you where everything is on the map!
