Been a rough launch of the expansion, no news there it’s always a rough launch for any mmorpg or expansion to one, but when I’m able to play and not be in queue for 40mins it’s pretty fun.
The garrison is a good thing for taking some of the tedium from gathering/crafting and the follower minigame thing is pretty cool as well. I like the garrison because its basically a keep and you can upgrade parts of it to unlock various things. For my Death Knight Roxanna, I built and upgraded to level 2: Town Hall, Gladiator’s Sanctum, Dwarven Bunker, Fishing Shack, Herb Garden, Lunarfall Excavation, and the Storehouse.
