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.

Transmog

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.
.......did i just heard faint "F*cking Casual!" somewhere in the distance?

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.
