How did you figure out that things like Conjure Food can't be obtained randomly? If that's true, then arcane mages like Millhouse Manastorm only have four possible abilities instead of the usual five.That's good to know if it's true, it means those followers have a 1 in 3 chance of rolling the second ability you want when they reach epic instead of the usual 1 in 4.
Awesome stuff! Time to update my guide for these changes as well. :)
Aha, that makes a lot of sense. That also nicely explains what happened to threat ID 5 too. Thanks for the explanation!
What's the point of this really?I'm pretty sure most of the community is using both Garrison Mission Manager & Master Plan addons..
The Warlords of Draenor follower guide and some followers are the most popular content on the site. We want to show the best possible data that we can for these pages people enjoy viewing, like we do for the rest of the site.
why dont you do a post about the fact that its going to take "244" weeks to get all the followers, so tbf we wont get them all till were into the next XP
This isn't really related to what the post is about, which is talking about data projects Wowhead developers work on. If you have concerns about the number of followers you need to recruit via the Inn for completion purposes, the Garrison forum on battle.net is where those concerns should go. Although with 20-25 only active at once, I don't think Blizzard intends for people to collect hundreds of inactive followers--there's no incentive to collect that many.
Comment/question about the "exclusive" category:I have 2 active followers both with Herbalism, and 2 active followers both with Leatherworking, and 1 active & 1 inactive follower both with Alchemy.What is meant by "exclusive"?
Exclusive means you can only have one trait from this category on a follower. There are 13 traits marked as exclusive in the data and you cannot have combinations such as:
Garrisons felt pretty rushed in WoD with polish lacking in some areas and data tables changing quite frequently towards the end of beta. I wonder if we'll see some more Inn filters in 6.1 to make recruiting followers a better experience.
I would like to see a rework on the Bodyguard trait. It feels pointless recruiting a bunch of followers, but only being able to explore with a select few. Feels like all your decisions for your garrison stays at your garrison, which makes people even more inclined to sit at their bases.
Thank you SO much for the enhancements. The follower mini-game is certainly an entertaining (and lucrative) one. Great job putting in the effort to make it easier!
Thank you so much for this, it was incredibly informative. I've been trying to get a fourth follower who counters Group Damage, and I don't have an inn anymore, so I've just been trying to level everyone. Turns out Group Damage is pretty much just countered by healer specs (or some classes with healer specs, Chain Heal shows up on ele shaman followers too), so most of my non-epic followers, who for whatever reason tend to be hunters and rogues, won't do me any good. But I can focus on leveling Phylarch and Ulna and hope one of them gets it. And maybe I'll finally get one of those retraining certificates (one of my alts has gotten that mission twice, never seen it on my main), and now I know who to use it on if I'm hoping for more Group Damage counters.
Seeing as that Master Plan addon is now up to 3.3 million downloads, it doesn't surprise me that the follower guide is the most popular content right now. I still reference it weekly to see which spec can learn what. Good stuff.
Thanks for this and explaining the exclusive trait aspect in particular. Great guide! Over time I've found I have much less time to spend on WoW than I used to. I find myself playing the mini games (garrison, followers, odd daily) more often than levelling alts, raiding or exploring the game in general.
Thanks for all the nice feedback. Of course as luck would have it, the Inn suggested a follower today with one of those odd Timed Battle abilities Erorus mentioned above, so we'll adjust follower pages to display them. Right now it's looking like that cluster of abilities is still special, and you can only get them on Inn followers.
post screenshot of inn followers guys! theyre look changes according to follower enhancements. i have uploaded all screens i had, but its waiting a 72h approval.
