From lowly newbie Shaman to decorated General of the Alliance with his own castle stronghold in a little over a month. I could definitely get used to this.

This was definitely my favorite moment of the World of Warcraft Warlords of Draenor expansion so far — when what was once just a rough assemblage of logs blossomed into a full-fledged castle.

My garrison now has pretty much everything I need. A stables that allows me to capture exotic mounts. Alchemy and enchanting stations to develop my professions. A herb garden. An extensive ore mine. A fishing pond. A war tower with its own portal to the expansion's main city (if you could call it that).

I know just about everyone my level ends up with one, but since they are instanced I never see them, so it's easy to imagine I'm the only one. It's a pretty powerful feeling.

So much so that I've now got a level 90 undead warrior, so I can do it all over again from the other side.
