I know that I’m really, really late to this discussion, but after playing Warlords of Draenor for almost a week now I’m curious why the Garrison management system hasn’t been implemented on iOS. The auction house can be fully managed from the WoW App, so we know it’s not too much to ask.For some reason I see a lot of people saying they hate Garrisons. Am I missing something entirely here? Sure, they take lots of upkeep if you want to utilize them to their fullest, but they aren’t mandatory once you’re at 100, right? I could be way wrong there.
I like knowing I can earn tons of cash by maintaining my Garrison. I prefer Garrison work orders over the daily quest hub B.S. in every way. I like sending my companions out on missions to level them up, and I’m not even getting rewards from them yet. I like mining my ore, finding wood, using my profession buildings, etc.
Back on topic, I think the interface lends itself to an app. Simply log in to the Armory app or whatever, choose Garrison, and manage sending your troops on missions. You could even see the timers left on your missions and receive push notifications. To me this would make managing your Garrison even easier, and might even alleviate some of what people dislike.
Sadly, I guess Garrisons might be going away in Legion. I think the “Class Hall” will be public, and not a private Garrison-like feature. I think providing the Garrison feature in Legion would be great for those of us who enjoy the carrot it provides.
Anyone else really enjoy Garrisons and wish they would stick around in Legion?
