Garrison building

A Building is an accent structure (with NPCs and objects or fixed devices) exclusive to the Garrison system that is tied to a specific size of plot. There are three plot sizes: small, medium, and large. Garrison buildings allow access to a variety of different functions related to mounts, pet battles, professions, and more. To get the most out of some buildings, you can assign a related follower to work in them. There are Alliance 15.png and Horde 15.png skins and faction-specific NPCs for each building, but they function the same.

All garrisons start with a Ui promotion garrisons.png Town Hall as a base that improves as the garrison levels.

All buildings are available in three levels, but the Town Hall can only level with the garrison as a whole.

Adding a building

Adding a building has several requirements, but it is done at the [Architect Table]. First you must have a plot of the size (small, medium, large, or special) that matches the building you want to build. Second you must have learned the Blueprint for the type and level of building. Lastly, you must have the Inv garrison resource.png [Garrison Resources] and money to build the building. If you have all the requirements, find the icon for the building in the Architect Table window and drag it to the matching plot.

Removing a building

You really don't remove buildings. You just replace them with other buildings.
