Players who aren't in the beta often have a simple question about garrison followers and their associated missions: what is the point? There are few resources that explain their purpose and what benefit they provide. The list of rewards below is by no means comprehensive and should only be taken as examples of variety. They're some of the items I've personally earned while dispatching follower missions on the beta.
- Archmage Vargoth's Spare Staff for your toybox from a rare level 90 mission
- Relic of Rukhmar to increase reputation with Arakkoa Outcasts
- Shimmering Gauntlets and other Shimmering equipment at level 90
- Gleaming Ring and other rare-quality Gleaming equipment at level 90
- Munificent Robes and other Munificent equipment at level 100
- Apexis Crystals in lots of varying sizes, up to 1,000 from a rare level 100 mission
