I am probably one of the few people who really liked the Garrisons when they were around last expansion. It was a bit too easy to make gold, but I felt like they were valuable places to do quests from and I felt a sense of purpose every time I found myself there. Yes, there were downsides (worlds felt a bit empty with everyone just hanging out at home) but I still used them quite a bit.
Step forward now to the Legion Class Halls. They’re beautiful, populated, and I barely use it. I don’t send my followers out that often because I find it a pain to collect resources. Unfortunately I have to do some very specific follower quests for my class hall so I don’t have a lot of choice in the matter. These take time and resources and I don’t appear to be the only one hanging around the table waiting for a mission to complete.
I don’t do mythic+ runs so I don’t get the awesome chest that others get on server re-start (Tuesdays) and aside from pumping up my artifact weapons there’s not a heck of a lot for me to do in these class halls.
Ah well. I suppose we can’t win it all.
