Garrison: Gem Boutique Guide (WoD 6.2)

Last updated on Feb 24, 2015 at 09:34 by Damien 1 comment

Table of Contents

The Gem Boutique is a Small Garrison building that Jewelcrafters and Non-Jewelcrafters can use to craft Draenor-specific Jewelcrafting recipes.

While we explain, in this article, how to unlock all levels of the Gem Boutique, you may be interested in our guide to unlocking all the Garrison buildings. We also have a guide to leveling Jewelcrafting in Draenor.

1. Main Perks

For Jewelcrafters, the main perk of the Gem Boutique is that it allows you to create a maximum of 12x Taladite Crystal Icon Taladite Crystals per day, in addition to the 10x you can already craft with Taladite Crystal Icon Taladite Crystal (less with an Jewelcrafting skill lower than 700). These extra Crystals are really useful, because they allow you to craft more Draenor recipes, which means you make more money off the Auction House and you level up Jewelcrafting to 700 faster. The Gem Boutique is also where you buy your Draenor-specific Jewelcrafting recipes.

For Non-Jewelcrafters, the main perk of the Gem Boutique is that the resident Jewelcrafter can craft most of the Draenor-specific Jewelcrafting recipes for you.

3. Unlocking the Gem Boutique

In this section, we are going to tell you how to unlock the Gem Boutique, Level 1, 2, and 3.

3.1. Unlocking the Gem Boutique, Level 1

The Gem Boutique Level 1 is unlocked when you upgrade your Town Hall to Level 2.

Jewelcrafters can build this building with a Town Hall Level 1, because they have a chance to loot Drained Crystal Fragment Icon Drained Crystal Fragment (Alliance) and Intricate Crimson Pendant Icon Intricate Crimson Pendant (Horde). This item drops from humanoid mobs around Draenor and starts a quest line that eventually rewards the plan to build the Gem Boutique, Garrison Blueprint: Gem Boutique, Level 1 Icon Garrison Blueprint: Gem Boutique, Level 1, and Draenor Jewelcrafting Icon Draenor Jewelcrafting, which teaches basic Draenor recipes that can be used to level up the profession.

If you are a Jewelcrafter and the quest item does not drop for you, then you can buy your Draenor Jewelcrafting Icon Draenor Jewelcrafting for 100 Gold from the Jewelcrafter at your Gem Boutique, after upgrading your Town Hall to Level 2.

3.2. Unlocking the Gem Boutique, Level 2

Garrison Blueprint: Gem Boutique, Level 2 Icon Garrison Blueprint: Gem Boutique, Level 2 is sold by the blueprint vendor at your Garrison once you reach level 96 or once you complete your Talador Outpost. You can buy it with 750 Gold. You can also buy it from the blueprint vendor in Ashran without restrictions with an Outpost Building Assembly Notes Icon Outpost Building Assembly Notes, which can only be obtained twice, once when questing in Gorgrond and once when questing in the Spires of Arak. so the purpose of this Below, you will find the Alliance and Horde vendors.

Vendor Faction Location Cost
Sparz Boltwist Alliance Garrison, next to Architect Table 750 Gold
Kinkade Jakobs Alliance Ashran, next to Flightmaster 1x Outpost Building Assembly Notes Icon Outpost Building Assembly Notes
Rezlak Horde Garrison, next to Architect Table 750 Gold
Torgg Flexington Horde Ashran, next to Flightmaster 1x Outpost Building Assembly Notes Icon Outpost Building Assembly Notes

3.3. Unlocking the Gem Boutique, Level 3

Garrison Blueprint: Gem Boutique, Level 3 Icon Garrison Blueprint: Gem Boutique, Level 3 is a reward from completing the Working More Orders Icon Working More Orders achievement, which requires you to complete 250 Work Orders at your Garrison. This achievement is account-wide.

Once you complete the achievement, the blueprint is not directly handed over to you. You still need to buy it from Sparz Boltwist (Alliance) or Rezlak (Horde) for 1,000 Gold.

4. Work Orders

Work Orders are unlocked with your Gem Boutique Level 1 and allow you to create Taladite Crystal Icon Taladite Crystals. A Work Order takes 4 hours to complete and transforms 5x Blackrock Ore Icon Blackrock Ore into 1x Taladite Crystal Icon Taladite Crystal (2x with a level 100 follower assigned to the Gem Boutique). This means that you can complete a maximum of 6 Work Orders per day for a total yield of 6 to 12 Taladite Crystals.

4.1. Unlocking Work Orders

When you first build the Gem Boutique on a character, the resident Jewelcrafter at the building gives you Your First Jewelcrafting Work Order. To complete it, talk to the Jewelcrafter's Assistant and give the required 5x Blackrock Ore Icon Blackrock Ore. The small box outside the Gem Boutique should activate immediately and you can loot the Jewelcrafting Work Order Icon Jewelcrafting Work Order that you need to turn in to complete the quest. Doing so rewards you with 5x Taladite Crystal Icon Taladite Crystals.

4.2. Increasing Yield

After upgrading the Gem Boutique to Level 2, you can assign a follower with the Jewelcrafting Icon Jewelcrafting trait to work at the Gem Boutique. The higher the level of your follower, the higher the chance that the Work Order will generate 2 Taladite Crystals instead of only 1. With a level 100 follower, you are guaranteed to get 2 Taladite Crystals.

While working at the Gem Boutique, your follower receives experience for every Work Order completed.

4.3. Increasing Queue Size

You can queue up to a certain number of Work Orders, depending on your Gem Boutique's level (7 at Level 1, 14 at Level 2, 21 at Level 3).

Having a Storehouse Level 3 increases the maximum number of Work Orders by 15, which means a maximum of 22 Work Orders at Level 1, 29 at Level 2, and 36 at Level 3.

Being able to queue more Work Orders does not increase your yield, but it does allow you to let more time pass before you have to go back to the Gem Boutique to refill your queue of Work Orders.

4.4. Cost Comparison Between Work Orders and Jewelcrafting Recipe

Taladite Crystal Icon Taladite Crystal costs 20x Blackrock Ore Icon Blackrock Ore and 10x True Iron Ore Icon True Iron Ore, and produces between 4 and 10 Taladite Crystal Icon Taladite Crystals, depending on your Jewelcrafting skill. Below level 600, you only produce 4. Between level 600 and 700 the yield slowly increases to reach 10 at level 700.

Work Orders cost 5x Blackrock Ore Icon Blackrock Ore and produce between 1 and 2 Taladite Crystal Icon Taladite Crystals. With no follower or a level 90 follower, you produce only 1. The closer your follower is to 100, the higher the chance that the yield will be 2. With a follower level 100, you always produce 2.

The cheapest of the two methods is the Work Orders (we consider Blackrock Ore Icon Blackrock Ore and True Iron Ore Icon True Iron Ore to have the same value, because you can find them as easily in Draenor). That said, using Taladite Crystal Icon Taladite Crystal every day and keeping your Work Orders queue full is very easy, thanks to the Mine in your Garrison.

5. Resident Jewelcrafter

The Jewelcrafter at the Gem Boutique interacts with you in one of two ways, depending on whether or not you have the Jewelcrafting profession.

5.1. For Jewelcrafters

Buying the Draenor Jewelcrafting recipes from the Jewelcrafter in your Gem Boutique is the only way to obtain them. Each recipe costs a number of Secret of Draenor Jewelcrafting Icon Secrets of Draenor Jewelcrafting. You can make one of these items every day using the Secrets of Draenor Jewelcrafting Icon Secrets of Draenor Jewelcrafting Jewelcrafting recipe, which costs 5x Blackrock Ore Icon Blackrock Ore.

Completing the quest requires you to craft a Jewelcrafting item and rewards you with a Jewelcrafting Payment Icon Jewelcrafting Payment.
