Got an update from one of our designers that wanted provide more information on how your Followers gain XP when you send them out on Garrison Missions.

When Followers are below a mission’s level, they get a reduced percentage of the mission XP as well as any bonus XP earned.

Followers that are 1-2 levels below the mission level:
  • The Follower’s level number is displayed in orange, meaning they only receive 50% of the mission XP and bonus XP.
    Followers that are 3 or more levels below the mission level:
  • The Follower’s level number is displayed in red, meaning they only receive 10% of the mission XP and bonus XP.
    Before a hotfix that was implemented at 5:52pm PST, followers in red received 0% of the mission XP; and we felt that was not what we wanted since the UI didn’t indicate that was the case.

    Note that while level 90 missions may only award ~100XP, level 100 missions award much more, closer to the range of ~1500XP. So 10% of that is still a good amount for a level 90 Follower, even if they won't be doing a great job at getting the bonus loot until they gain some combat experience.

    We’d love to continue hearing feedback on how it feels to level Followers, what missions are available, and how these new numbers feel.

    Update 1

    Thank you for the feedback on Garrison Follower missions.

    We're working on a hotfix that should increase the amount of lower level Garrison Missions being offered to players that have lower leveled Followers. That hotfix is currently in the early stages of being tested and will continue to track its progress.

    Update 2

    The hotfix to increase the amount of lower level Garrison Missions being offered to players that have lower leveled Followers is now active.

    The result of this change is that characters are now guaranteed to have level 90-94 Garrison Missions available if they have Followers in the level 90-94 range and level 95-99 Garrison Missions available if they have Followers in the level 95-99 range.
