Wish we had some photos of these neat tabards. Qii 16:39, 15 December 2006 (EST)

Huh?Edit

How come the pvp tabards still say you buy them with money? I haven't had access to WoW since the new honor system came out but aren't they bought with honor now? Hordesupporter 19:59, 30 January 2007 (EST)

Ok... I can get on warcraft again, the Scout's tabard can be bought for 3 warsong gulch marks of honor, and 3 arathi basin marks of honor, the stone guard tabard can be bought for 20 warsong gulch marks of honor, 20 arathi basin marks of honor, and 20 alterac valley marks of honor, it goes the same for the alliance version of the tabards.

dalaran Edit

[1] - [2] : it's not the actual tabard, but looks just like it  - CJ talk / cont  12:17, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

That's pretty cool. Deserves a mention methinks. --User:Varghedin/Sig 21:29, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

"Hillsbrad" Tabard Edit

Uh, actually, I think this is the tabard of Lordaeron. Check the Caverns of Time, all the Lordaeron soldiers are wearing it, as well as all the members of the Knights of the Silver Hand. Tulon 19:00, 29 May 2007

It was listed as both, Varghedin removed it. Add it back. TeжubԎ Ҩ Ѡ 18:47, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
Oh, alright. Done. Tulon 21:30, 29 May 2007
Lorderan Tabard
The reason is that the tabard is called "Hillsbrad Tabard" in the game files. And what zone is featured in Caverns of Time? That's right, Hillsbrad. The soldiers of both Southshore and Hillsbrad still use this tabard. The Lordaeron capital tabard would presumably look something like the tapestry on the right. --User:Varghedin/Sig 21:29, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
That's because Hillsbrad is the only part of Lordaeron left, so in WoW there isn't anyone else who would use the tabard right now. The other remains of the Lordaeron army have either gone to Kalimdor with Jaina or joined the Scarlet Crusade. So it was the Lordaeron tabard as long as Lordaeron existed. Just take a look at the patrols in the Caverns of Time and you'll see they are soldiers of the Alliance of Lordaeron, and not a militia of Hillsbrad - like it is clearly mentioned when you come across, for example, the guards of Tarrens Mill. Who don't have a tabard at all, since apparently only nations have tabards, not towns. Not to mention the Knights of the Silver Hand, who surely would not wear any other tabard than that of Lordaeron. As for why they did not take the "L" you posted, that's simple: each and every tabard works by mirroring half an image. You simply technically cannot include a tabard image into the game which is not "mirrorable" when split in half. Sad fact, as I'd have preferred the "L", too - but there you go. Tulon 05:00, 30 May 2007
Had never noticed the mirroring until you pointed it out :) TeжubԎ Ҩ Ѡ 03:26, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Me either, although I had wondered about the visible distortion in the middle apparent in some tabards like the Argent Dawn and the White Stormwind tabard. Makes sense I guess. --User:Varghedin/Sig 11:39, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Lordaeron-eagle
I'm just playing through Warcraft 3 again, where I noticed this emblem above a human gate. Now, this might just be a coincidence, but it might well be interpreted as the blue eagle on white/silver priming we know from the tabard. Of course this should not be overrated, but I thought I'd mention it here. --Tulon 06:30, 28 September 2007

square vs. "shaped" images Edit

Are "square" (likely texture files) tabard images being replaced with screenshot "shaped" images? I feel the square ones provide a much better idea of how the tabards are intended to look on a variety of body types, not to mention they look cleaner.

Lordaeron tabardEdit

Okay so is the double eagle tabard the Lordaeron tabard or Southshore tabard? Likewise, is the L tabard the Lordaeron tabard or the Southshore tabard?  Rolandius Wc3Knight (talk - contr) 11:39, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Double eagle is Southshore, L is Lordaeron. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 11:55, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Oh okay I hope someone makes a tabard on here for Lordaeron then.  Rolandius Wc3Knight (talk - contr) 12:13, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
See the above conversation about the technical impossibility of creating a tabard that isn't mirrored. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 12:20, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Ya I saw that. That is why I said I hope someone adds the new Silver Hand tabard if it is even possible, which it probably isn't.  Rolandius Wc3Knight (talk - contr) 12:27, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Knights of the SIlver HandEdit

Now that we know they had a tabard, is it possible to make one for this page from the picture available?  Rolandius Wc3Knight (talk - contr) 11:42, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

No, for a few different reasons. First, this page is a listing of in-game tabards, not faction symbols. This is why things like the Lordaeron L tabard are not on the page, because no one in-game wears a tabard with that symbol. Second, the Silver Hand does not have a tabard that we have seen. Third, if they do have a tabard, it would be considered leaked Alpha information and we can't post it. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 22:05, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Stormwind Tabards Edit

Acording to one of the General achievements, before the tabards were removed, it listed [Stormwind Tabard] as one of the tabards that qualified for the Achievement - do you think this means a new tabard will be introduced or will one of the 2 listed on the page as unobtainable will become obtainable (problably for becoming Exalted with Stormwind) ? -- ( Morph | Contribs | Talk ) 17:31, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Unobtainable TabardsEdit

There are two Stormwind tabards. Someone should put a note telling what the difference is between them, like which NPCs wear one or the other.  Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 06:41, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

WotLK requirementsEdit

The part about WotLK mentions future tense ("WotLK will continue this trend") instead of past tense ("WotLK continued this trend") - I was going to change it but it also mentions that the WotLK will "remove or lower the reputation requirement" for a tabard and I don't know which or both is true. Hopefully someone who knows the answer will update the page.MarkButler (talk) 02:39, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Old tabards did not have their rep requirements changed. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 08:00, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
Correct - The old tabards require you to be exalted with their faction before you could get their Tabard. WOTLK requires you to be friendly with the faction and have to Champion them in the level 80 instances in order to raise their reputation. -- ( Morph | Contribs | Talk ) 16:33, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Silver Covenant TabardEdit

Anyone mind if I put the tabard worn by Vereesa Windrunner and Vas the Unstable on the WOTLK section? I assume its the Silver Covenant tabard by the fact that the faction leader wears it... also, how can I get the proper "view" of the tabard to match the other ones posted?--Blayaden (talk) 17:28, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Two simple questionsEdit

Why isn't Guild Tabard on here since it can technically be worn as is. Also, does the Guild Tabard count towards the tabard achievements? Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 08:00, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

It does not count towards the achievement. Either that or its bugged. User:Coobra/Sig3 08:02, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Argent Tournament tabards Edit

We should start adding the new Argent Tournament tabards on here. Toran Wildpaw of the Frenzyheart (talk) 01:35, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Tabards worn by Brann's expedition Edit

I recently made my (first!) sojourn into Ulduar, and noticed that the engineers and explorers in Brann's expedition wear a tabard with a logo that appears to be two crossed mining picks - possibly the insignia of the expedition, or of the Explorer's Guild itself. I'll see if I can get a screenie the next time I go, but I think this falls under the "unobtainable" category. --Joshmaul (talk) 07:19, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Honor rank tabards moved Edit

Just prior to patch 3.2.2, honor rank tabards were not available from the officer accessories vendor in Stormwind. I haven't been back to see if they returned with 3.2.2. They were available at that time from the tabard vendor in the visitor's center in Stormwind. --Eirik Ratcatcher (talk) 21:06, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

They should be, but I haven't verified it yet. In any case, they are still available from the tabard vendors in guild "stores." -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 21:13, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
