|This article or section is likely to dramatically change once Legion begins.
- This article is about primarily about follower missions. For other uses, see naval missions for ship missions.
A Mission is like a quest, but for a Garrison or Order Hall follower or followers (Order Hall missions can also use the aid of troops). The follower gains experience from completing a mission, but the player could also get a reward, depending on the mission.
The length of mission depends on the type of mission chosen, ranging from less than an hour to a week, but most are less than 12 hours. Missions can also be run while the player is offline.
Each follower, depending on race, class and spec, has different abilities and scenarios that are best suited for them, such as a character who can taunt or a character who works better in a group.

Players send their followers on missions for varied purposes. Successful missions will give you the resources you need to keep developing your Garrison, but you'll also have the chance to acquire powerful loot or resources for your character, and your followers can gain bonus experience for certain missions they run.
The resources you acquire during missions include both existing crafting reagents and Garrison-specific materials. For example, if you assign a follower to a mining mission, you could receive ore, but you might also unearth garrison resources, a new kind of resource used to construct and upgrade buildings.
Reward types EditThis section concerns content exclusive to Warlords of Draenor.
- Follower XP
- Gold (plus in some cases or just 1)
- Items (gear can range from sub-ilvl 600 rare to 700 epic)
A Cinder Pup is a Beast battle pet, which can be obtained through the completion of the rare Garrison mission, Fiery Friends. This mission requires 3 level 100 followers with item levels of at least 675.
- Missions with an XP icon will award bonus follower XP, if the the follower is level appropriate.
- Followers below required mission level or item level will display a warning icon that they will get less follower XP from the mission.
