Tabard refers to a type of clothing bearing a symbol or design and worn in the tabard equipment slot over a character's chest armor. It is a purely cosmetic item intended to add individuality to a character's look, similar to a shirt.

The only tabard available to players upon the release of World of Warcraft was the guild tabard. The release of battlegrounds and the honor system saw a variety of new tabards introduced, identifying a player's rank or standing with a particular battleground faction. The Scourge Invasion also added a small number of tabards. In World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, each faction in Outland was given its own tabard, available at exalted status. World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King continues this trend, but has lower (or no) reputation requirements and instead utilizes faction tabards in a system known as championing for farming reputation.

Patch 3.0 introduced the achievement system, which includes rewards for tabard collectors. Upon obtaining a tabard, a general achievement called "Represent" is granted; subsequent achievement points are granted at ten and twenty-five tabards, with the latter granting the Tabard of the Achiever. There is no current plan to alleviate the amount of bag space taken up by tabards as has been done with mount and non-combat pet collections (which grant similar achievements), but Blizzard has said it is a possibility in the future. Some tabards can be discarded and repurchased or reacquired at a tabard vendor. These generally include rewards from non-repeatable quests and achievements (such as the [Green Trophy Tabard of the Illidari]).

Guild tabards[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Guild tabards can be purchased for 1g from a guildmaster in the Visitor's Center of any faction capital city. Guild leaders can customize the symbol and color scheme of the guild's tabard for 10g .

See below for web-based tabard design tools.

Once your tabard crest has been created, it will take another 10g every time you wish to make a change to it.

Honor rank tabards[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]

Honor rank tabards are an honor reward for PvP fighting under the Honor System (battlegrounds).

Enlisted tabards were available for 1g at rank one (AlliancePrivate and Horde Scout).

Under the new 'Mark of Honor' system of PvP rewards, [Private's Tabard] and [Scout's Tabard] now are purchasable from Master Sergeant Biggins in the Champion's Hall (located in Stormwind City) / Brave Stonehide in the Hall of Legends (located in Orgrimmar) for 3 Warsong Gulch Mark of Honor 3 Arathi Basin Mark of Honor .

Officers' tabards were available for 4g at rank six (AllianceKnight and Horde Stone Guard). Somewhat more glorified, these look similar to the enlisted tabards, but are significantly more detailed.

Battleground tabards[επεξεργασία | επεξεργασία κώδικα]
