WoD: Guide to Followers with Profession Traits

As I mentioned in my previous article, you can assign a follower with a profession perk to your level 2 garrison buildings for an added bonus. One bonus is that you have a chance to get 2 extra resource from your work orders. The chance for getting an extra resource is only 50% if you have a level 90 follower, but it will increase to 100% when you level your follower to level 100. For the Mine and Herb garden, the bonus is that you will get 8 herb/ore from your work orders instead of 5.

There is another added follower bonus for every building:

Upgrading your buildings to level 2

You need a level 2 building to assign a follower to your buildings. And to get the blueprints, you need to complete your Talador Outpost at Talador, or you need level 96.

Rezlak (Horde) or Sparz Boltwist (Alliance) sells the blueprints at your garrison for 750 gold. Mine is the only exception because you can upgrade it at level 92 for 1000 gold.

Once your building is level 2, you can assign a follower to that building if you select it at your architect table.

How to get the followers

The Lunarfall Inn / Frostwall Tavern medium building let's you specify one trait of one follower each week. But, you can only choose the traits of your followers if you have a level 2 building, which requires completing Spires of Arak outpost or to be level 98. (the blueprint is sold by the same NPCs I mentioned above)

A much easier way to get the followers is from questing. (and cheaper if you don't even have Lunarfall Inn / Frostwall Tavern). Most followers from quest rewards have random traits, so if you are lucky your follower can roll a profession trait.

Below is a list of every quest/mission that rewards you a follower with a predefined profession trait.

This information is from the beta, so it's possible not everything is accurate.






  • Both factions: Ahm Get Dying Wish quest from Ahm at Talador. Upon completing this quest, you will find the ghost of Ahm outside your Garrison. He gives the quest Solidarity in Death, which allows you to recruit him as a follower.


  • Horde: Kimzee Pinchwhistle This follower is obtained from the quest chain starting from the Clutchpop Gearworks in Spires of Arak.
  • Alliance: Apprentice Artificer Andren You get this follower after finishing Elodor questline. You have to choose between three followers. (These followers are exclusive, and once you choose one, you can not go back and obtain the others)





  • Horde: Ka'la Reward from Gronnlings Abound mission. Usually it's one of the first few missions you get after you get your first follower.
