You mean dark cats wearing sombreros?

But while we're at it: I want more garrison blog posts! They promised me atleast 5 blog posts in the interviews the last few days! I want social justice, else I'm going to quit, stomp on the ground, vomit, shout and rant on twitter, tumblr, reddit, the official and mmo-c forums!

No really, has anyone seen Horde garrison stuff or atleast places in his sandbox adventures?

To be fair, its orc buildings. I don't think in canon the horde is wanting any big orc structures, wich is why we see goblin and troll camps instead.

But aswell, its alpha, so a LOT of stuff is missing.


from mmochamp:
•After rescuing members of the Frostwolf Clan in the Warlords intro quest experience, Durotan will give you a plot of land. This is where you start building your garrison.

Yea, already saw that. So far it sounds really great.
The garrison will be part of your questing/leveling experience. Many characters you get to know along the way seem to become part of your garrison or atleast visit it sometimes.
It isn't just a closed up 'housing', the Iron Horde will attack it and you'll have to defend it.
And it will be costumisable (right word?!) to high degree, you can change it to your likes and needs.
[I know we don't get race-specific buildings and walls, but we're already getting a huge pack of cool stuff with the garrison. Maybe if we're nice we atleast get banners we can change (race-specific or maybe even guild/arena-emblem like) and guards we can choose?]

IF it really comes with all that they promised in interviews and on twitter, this will be an incredible feature.
Hopefully we build up on that in future expansions.

Maybe a island fortress, with a dock and a ship in a Maelstrom/Seas/Islands/Draenor-Oceans expansion?
Or some Azeroth zones get additonal plateaus/valleys in the wide mountain ranges between zones and we'll be able to take our garrisons back home? (Example: A garrison place up the road of Stonetalon Pass in Mulgore would overlook Stonetalon, Barrens and Mulgore)

Hopefully there`ll be a way to portal to our garrison, otherwise the trip will be tedious.

I do kind of hope that the whole "NPCs can attack your Garrison!" thing is something that only happens when you're online and at your Garrison; like, you have to pick up a quest or something. Otherwise, it's going to be really annoying if you miss a day or two and come back to everything being on fire.

I think they mentioned during their interview with Polaris at PAX East that mage towers may allow you to have access to a network of portals or something, let me double check...

Yeah, they mention it (technically a teleportation network) around... 4:17 in this video.

I'm actually rather fond of this current decision. Essentially, we seem to be taking the role that Garrosh/Varian did in WotLK. Honestly, I'm actually liking this more than the 'choosing your own zone' garrison. That was neat, but it was sold more like a gimmick. This seems to be more of a central story mechanism, and does much more to place us in the roles of the heroes of the previous games. So, consider me sold.

Yes, but it doesn't seem like the warsong are really expanding their lands anymore. Their territories are in Nagrand, where the ogres are allies of the iron horde and the draenei holdings consist of just one town. Any new lands of theirs would be beyond the portal, seperated by the territories of the burning blade, laughing skull, shattered hand and bleeding hollow (I think in that order too). It relies entirely on trusting the other clans for safe passage, or having to move your clan. Taking lands from the other clans might not provide as big an advantage, but you end up with much more secure territories.

That and it seems to me we stop them reasonably decisively at the Portal, so their bonds may be more fragile once Azeroth is removed from their itinerary.
