This FAQ covers some popular questions we've fielded about Garrison building strategies in Warlords of Draenor.

Mage Tower / Spirit Lodge
We also have specific guides to buildings for popular types of content and collections:
What building is the best to build early on?
While you should build what interests you the most, most players find themselves resource-starved early on, especially when upgrading the Garrison to level 3 since that takes 2000 resources.
Two buildings can assist with the production of Garrison Resources: the
The Lumber Mill lets you convert 10 Timber into 20 Garrison Resources. You can increase that to 30 Garrison resources per 10 Timber at Level 3 with the
Phylarque le Verpérenne
follower, but if you’re starved on resources early on, you are probably not at this point yet.
The Trading Post lets you convert 5 of a crafting reagent (it varies per day) into 30 Garrison Resources. This is more of a gamble as the Work Order could require you to turn in items you need for crafting or are expensive on the AH, or it could require you to trade in materials which are basically free from your garrison's Mine or Herb Gardwn, or via questing.
If you are poorly geared at first, the
can give you ilvl 600 and ilvl 620 items via Work Orders. The
Dwarven Bunker / War Mill
is also good while leveling as it increases the chance your quest rewards are upgraded.
In addition, it is good to get your
(requires 96) and
(requires 92) set up as you are leveling--Level 1 is free, no Garrison Resources--because you can start generating herbs and ore daily.
Why do I want a profession building if I have a profession?
Having a profession building augments a profession. With Work Orders, you can generate more reagents for your profession instead of being locked into your daily cooldown that only generates 4-10 of a reagent.
However, you can decide not to build a profession building and still have access to all Draenor recipes--just buy the recipes from vendors in Ashran instead of your garrison.

How do I assign and remove followers from a building?
Followers with specific traits can be assigned to their corresponding buildings.
to see a list of traits that are related to buildings.
To assign a follower to a building, go to your Architect’s Table in your Town Hall and click on that building plot. A circle with a + will appear at the top of the table--click on that to bring up a list of followers that can be assigned to that building. Simply click on the follower you like and it will be automatically assigned to the building.
To remove the follower, open up the Architect's Table, click on the building plot, and look at your follower's portrait. There will be a small red crossed out circle at the top right of their portrait--click on it to remove them from working at the building.
Are there non-profession small buildings?
Yes, there are a few:
The Salvage Yard generates crates when you complete missions and these crates can contain BoEs (including old transmog items and new ilvl 665 epics), class-specific transmog gear, and items that boost your follower’s item level.
The Storehouse lets you queue more Work Orders at once (great when you are going on vacation) and provides easy access to banks and Void Storage.
What perks from buildings are not included in tooltips?
The level perks on tooltips are fairly detailed and our guides for all buildings break down what they do in detail, but here’s a brief rundown of what isn’t clear on tooltips:
“Unique bonuses” for Small Buildings. We’ve explained all of the perks on our
and building guides--they range from extra daily quests to the option to change the glow on your weapon. Assigning a follower also increases the chance that your Work Order yield is doubled.

Morceaux d'armure de la Horde de Fer
: The Level 3 Fishing Shack allows you to recruit
as a follower. Through catching his special fish, you can puchase cool items from him like
Rênes de trotteur aquatique cramoisi
: The Nemesis quests and Highmaul Colisseum event award numerous titles--this building lets you collect the most titles. In addition, there are several banner toys associated with the Highmaul Colisseum event. Finally, the “Conqueror’s Tribute” is a very lucrative Work order that can contain ilvl 600 and ilvl 626 PvP gear--great for gearing up.
: Vendors starting at level 1 are available who sell transmoggable farm weapons as well as
in exchange for
: The Lumber Mill lets you recruit two followers:

: The Level 3 “Player items” do not refer to special BoEs--they refer to ilvl 610 class-specific weapons and armor that resemble the gear boosted characters receive.

The Level 3 Stables perk,
, does not stack with the guild perk
or passive class abilities such as
Sur un cheval pâle
Do outposts affect my buildings, like the Lumber Mill in Gorgrond and the Lumber Mill building?
Each Garrison outpost offers you a choice to make as you are questing in a zone. This affects what your outpost in a specific zone looks like, the combat benefit you get, and the followers you get as rewards from each outpost questline.
While several Garrison buildings have quite similar names to Outpost options, they are not related. The Gorgrond Sparring Arena offers no benefits to your Gladiator's Sanctum, for example.
