Happy Winter’s Veil everyone! The new expansion launched quite successfully with a mad rush for everyone to hit level 100. I did a lot of traveling around Warlords launch, rushed to get ready for raiding, and then I came down with a nasty cold this last week. So, for the last week, I’ve spent my holiday break in my garrison.
I may have also made my garrison defenders pandaren-themed (since I still have the barraks and my panda is only exalted with other pandas).
Without flying to encourage me to leave my garrison, I’ve gotten anything I could ever want directly in my garrison. I even got a 670 ilevel trinket from a Highmaul follower mission. Getting raid gear during our week off from raiding is pretty sweet.
However, I worry a little bit that we might be getting too much from our garrisons, and not being given enough incentives to walk out our front doors. My stables sent me out for a couple weeks, but now I’ve run out of stables quests. I don’t need as many apexis crystals anymore, so I’m doing fewer daily quests. My Inn quests are overflowing from my quest logs now that I don’t need gear from dungeons.
My cold zapped my desire to leave my garrison, and my garrison welcomed me with open arms to sit around and be lazy on my newly acquired holiday lounge cushions.
At least I have Pepe!
