Today we've got a
Guide to the Garrison Jukebox and Music Rolls
, as well as a post from Nethaera on Apexis Gear Changes in patch 6.1, and from Bashiok on Iron Docks:
Iron Docks Quests moved to 6.2
a tweet about the move of the Iron Docks quests to 6.2
, CM Bashiok has clarified with a blue post:
It's a one-time quest that leads you to Tanaan. Assumptions that this was a big quest hub, focused around Foundry content, or that it's a chunk of substantial content that we cut, are incorrect. It's a one-time quest chain that directly leads into events of 6.2, and that's the patch it's in.
Ethereal Apexis Gear
Currently, the Apexis traders in the Horde town of Warspear and Alliance town of Stormshield offer gear up to item level 655, but in Patch 6.1, you’ll be able to trade up to ilvl 670 Ethereal Waist, Head, Wrist, Legs, Hands, Back, and Finger (ring) items.

Guide to the Garrison Campaign Quests and Rewards
2014/12/21 at 1:01 PM
The Garrison Campaign is a series of level 100 quest chapters starting from your Garrison in Warlords of Draenor. There are 12 quest chains total and you can complete one roughly every week. Many of them reward cool rewards such as vanity items and titles.

This guide covers the twelve Garrison Campaign questlines and their rewards. In addition to rewards, each questline sends you to an area that activates an additional progress bar, in the style of the "Assault" dailies, that rewards 0
