Garrison followers go on missions that have a variety of rewards including materials to build your Garrison further or entry-level raid loot. They can be collected through questing, achievements, or via the Lunarfall Inn / Frostwall Tavern.
Followers can be assigned on Garrison Missions, which provide you with Garrison Resources, vanity items, follower experience, and even potential gear.
Followers can provide certain bonuses to your Garrison Buildings, such as the ability to change the appearance of your weapon enchant and increase Work Order yield.
Several Bodyguard followers can assist you killing mobs in Draenor and eventually grant special abilities like Ishaal Perk: Courier Raven.
Followers can be obtained by questing and achievements, and players with the Level 2 Lunarfall Inn / Frostwall Tavern can recruit additional followers.
