I was thinking about this the other day – I needed to make some buff food but I didn’t have quite enough of the correct kind of fish, so I ran up to the trader and exchanged some garrison resources for some.
And it was just perfect. It’s just perfect for if you need a little bit of something. You can snag it right there in the garrison without even running to the auction house or anything. I love it. I love it so much. It’s so streamlined.
I love garrisons in general. I know some people say that it takes away player interaction, and I guess I can sort of see it a little? But ultimately I don’t spend much time there, and I only ever do invasions with another player. (I hate doing invasions alone, in fact!) So for me, anyway, I don’t feel any sort of loss. If anything it’s relaxing to have a safe place to retreat in-game every so often. I am a nerve-wracked and high-strung soul, at heart. It’s nice to have a personal little sanctuary, and a centralized hub to return to between all the other stuff you gotta do.
So yeah. GARRISONS. I love them and I’m going to miss them when Blizz inevitably pulls a Pokemon and retires a good idea. But maybe next we’ll get something better? Who knows!
