Moggin' with Tabards - Tabard of the Explorer (Cloth)

A lot of mogs out there are just plain ruined by tabards, so we keep them off. We leave them tucked away in our banks or we simply delete them. Some of these tabards may have been pretty difficult to get. Heck, you may even have a couple that are not even available in game any more. Well I think these tabards need to be shown off a bit. I believe if you have the right mog to go along with a tabard, you can not only have a really cool looking mog - you can also show that tabard off!

With that being said, this post is the first in a series of posts I plan to do that will be centered around tabards.

This mog featured below is built around the Tabard of the Explorer.

  1. This is a fantastic idea, and a lovely set to kick off the series! I'm very fond of blue and brown together, and the gold accents are lovely. The choice of relatively simple armor pieces also really lets the tabard take center stage. :D
