Saoire got to level 96 today, and along with that came upgrades to all of her buildings that weren’t already there, which was everything but the garrison itself and the mine. The level 2 Inn provides the ability to acquire followers – which we’ve been looking forward to for some time.
Truth be told, there are a ton of abilities her 11 other followers hadn’t covered, and even more not covered by a dwarf, so I didn’t really “pick” an ability to look for her first follower. But, among the three options was Brogan here. Mister Threepints will clearly need some new duds. Those patches don’t belong in Saoire’s garrison, but they ‘ve had a pint together to discuss his position and her expectations.
I spent most of my WoW time this weekend on Saoire. She’s now gotten two of the 5 total available dwarves from questing: Bruma Swiftstone and Delvar Ironfist. Delvar still cracks me up. She’s only level 91, so still in Shadowmoon Valley, and still only has two plots (which house the Barracks and Engineering Works).
I do have to ask, though, why is the Engineering Works being run by humans? Why are they not Gnomes? It would be nice if Blizzard had put some thought into using the races more equally in the buildings. Lots and lots of humans, a good number of Night Elves, a smattering of Draenei, and the rare Dwarf or Gnome. This seems to fit with the racial “balance” of the followers, as well, the Draenei understandably tip the balance here, since we get some actually from Draenor, as opposed to the others, who all had to come through the portal.
