Tabards Account-Wide in Patch 8.1

Recommended Posts

QkUk1Z3.jpg

Tabards will be account-wide in Tides of Vengeance, meaning once you earn them on your main, you'll be able to use them on your alts with some restrictions.

Let's take Warden's Tabard Warden's Tabard as an example. You'll still need Exalted reputation standing with the Wardens and 300 Gold to unlock the appearance, but once purchased you're free to use it on your alts.

A level 110 character Neutral with the Wardens was able to use the appearance on PTR.

A level 94 character, however, wasn't able to transmog the tabard, meaning minimum expansion requirements are still in place. The required level to use the appearance of Legion tabards is 98.

This is an hollow gift. First of all I considered tabards as a trophy. Why devalue the trophy? Secondly, the sole reason why I want to grind rep with a faction on an alt is simple, crafting recipes. Thirdly, who uses a faction tabard? You hardly see people wearing their guild tabards.

 

I like it when Blizzard makes unlocked stuff account-wide. Yet some stuff still should be a character achievement.

I personally don't see the point in tabards unless it increases rep gained with said faction when worn....like the stormwind tabard.

I do agree with you, I wish there were tabards  again that would give you rep when you cleared dungeons aside from city tabards (like in WOTLK).

But this is entirely a transmog decision from Blizz. They explained it by stating that basically, “it isn’t fair that you can’t match all the pretty colors of your outfit if you wanted to, if there are tabards locked behind rep(s) that you typically don’t unlock one more than one toon.” (Imo if your transmog is your pride and joy in the game, then you’re probably just an RP’er or super casual in general. I have a couple friends who are exactly what I just described.)

 

Not a QOL change in the least, but it is still something good/positive to be introduced. I buy all the tabards at exalted on my main and never again (for achieves/mog) and now I’ll have those tabards for account-wide mog after this.

It's still... a trophy. unlocking a tabard on 13 different characters really doesn't feel any more exciting than unlocking it on one. Once you've got the rep once, any time after that just feels like a pain. hell, people complain about the INITIAL rep grind even

Once you already grinded any given reputation, you just proved that you are able to show that "pride" or feat by being allowed to use it on any character one desires... it's already achieved ?

Why not make ALL rep rewards account-wide once you hit Revered? Not just tabards an tmogs.

In a way I agree with you. However the tabard is the item that has the least impact on gameplay. Why do crafters have to grind all reps to unlock all recipes? So for Legion they presented us crafting quests. People complained there were too many recipe quests, so Blizzard put them back behind a rep wall in BFA.  That tells me Blizzard wants rep to be something important. Then they announce tabards will be unlocked account-wide. I don't follow their logic, do you?

Meaning the least impact on levelling and the economy.

It seems like youre proving their point for them.  Its purely cosmetic.  You can sell the items from many recipes, but you cant sell the tabard.

Itsjust xmog.

Personally i think eventually rep will be account bound as well, but we're not there yet.

      Here's another Mythic+ non-meta victory, with a controller using tank finishing up the achievement in the worst Covenant for the spec in M+, in PUGs!
      We look at the log rankings, tier lists and various other optimizations and standings a lot here, so it's also important to point out that you really can get most non-highest end content done with any spec you want. Berub proved this and then some, as they got KSM while tanking as a Blood Death Knight Night Fae, the worst Covenant for M+ for the spec AND used a controller while doing it! And the best part? The reason Berub chose Night Fae is because of the armor looks!

      And while many others have completed KSM with off-meta specs, and some did with a controller as well, the tank + worst Covenant + controller part is especially impressive, and Berub didn't quite mention the control method to the groups, or those runs probably never would have happened at all. Here are some comments from the journey:
      Hopefully examples like this encourage players to try new things and now be quite as limited by the meta, despite it being pretty hard to get into groups, especially for DPS.

      This week's world boss is Mortanis and you can find him in Maldraxxus.
      Mortanis
      One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.

      Mortanis drops Item Level 207 loot along with various Legendary Power recipes and Conduits. Do not forget to pick the Renown weekly quest for 1,000 Anima before killing Mortanis. We are listing the full loot table below. 

      Memory of Fujieda (Warrior Legendary Power) Memory of Keefer (Monk Legendary Power) Memory of a Guile Charm (Rogue Legendary Power) Band of the Risen Bonelord (Ring) Mortanis's Ribcage (Mail Chest) Bone Crushing Vicegrips (Mail Gloves) Bone-Cleated Footpads (Leather Feet) Spine Crawler Waistcord (Cloth Belt) Shoulderblade Vambraces (Plate Wrists)

      There seem to be some new issues with the EU authentication servers, as many players are unable to log in. So if you're having trouble playing at the moment, don't worry, it's not just you:

      Anyone having issues loggin in (EU)? fix the servers Blizzard have also responded on the matter, but it seems to still be ongoing:
      So we'll just have to wait a bit more, although the issue has been persisting for about an hour now.

      Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
      DISCLAIMER
      In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
      S-Tier
      Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
      Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
      Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
      Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio
