Best Garrison Follower Team
In the Warlords of Draenor expansion, a crack commando unit was developed by a military leader to help fight a war against the Iron Horde. These men soon realized that Lore be damned, this was all about the phat loots. So today they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them….maybe you can hire The Super Team.
When it comes to garrison followers, it’s nice to have an A-Team, a Super Team, that you can count on. A team of specialists that will 100% any follower mission your garrison can throw at you. When it comes to free raid gear, or a pile of apexis crystals, you want a team that’ll go out there and bring back the goods… damn near every time.
But how? How?
Step 1 – Recruit
Some followers are born great, and others have greatness thrust upon them. To make this team, you’re going to need the former. Time to get a bit racist, but in a good and non-oppressive way.
Select three followers from these racial types:
- Mechanical: Ziri’ak, Pleasure-Bot
- Arakkoa: Dawnseeker Rukaryx, Talonpriest Ishaal, Talon Guard Kurekk
- Ogre: Blook, Dagg, Tormmok
- Wildling: Goldmane, Leorajh, Meatball
I normally go with Pleasure-Bot (Mechanical), Blook or Tormmok (Ogre), and Leorajh or Goldmane (Wildling). These three are the easiest to get, since they’re just standing around various corners of Draenor with their thumbs in their butts until you wander along and recruit them.
They’ll do, is what I’m saying here.
Step Two – Training
You’re going to need two of Winning With Wildlings, Grease Monkey Guide, Guide to Arakkoa Relations, or Ogre Buddy Handbook consumable items, depending on the three followers you selected. The beauty of the system is now you can select where to put the trait when you train them. In the past, there was a chance that one racial affinity could overwrite another through pure random bad luck. Not anymore. Now you can select which ones your followers will have.
Mechanical: Wildling and Ogre
Wildling: Mechanical and Ogre
Ogre: Mechanical and Wildling.
By setting up your followers in this way, these three will be all you’ll need to knock out those tough garrison missions. That means more room for Treasure Hunters. Cha-ching!
