The Tabards appear to be free for playing. Be in a battleground to the end and they’ll reward you with a tabard. I’m not sure a win is even required. Get into the Spirit of things.
The Spirits of Competition are said to be randomly awarded to winners. Greenclaw was in a few winning AV’s, and checked and found one in his mailbox. Msaker was in a single game tonight, and a win, in Eye of the Storm. Both had presents waiting for them in the mail from The Committee.
I love the random doodads you can pick up here and there.
And, yes, sometimes I do get confused. Are the Taurens the one’s I’m attacking or helping???
Sad, odd, note. Horde side guildie comments in guild chat he hadn’t gotten a medal yet. Well I ran into him outside of Vann’s earlier. He was in the frontline of a Horde push that came too little, too late. The group I was in was racing for a four minute win. Something about an achievement?? Well, we didn’t make four minutes, but we did win. Oh, yeah, he’s a Druid, and I was on my Night Elf Druid. Ackward conversations at the water cooler, wouldn’t you say? :)
