    Thumbs down Arathor battle tabard / Battle tabard of the defilers gone!!

    Dinged exalted with Arathi basin after 5.0.4 and found it odd there was no quest for the tabard (5bases) browsed some forum posts where ppl said they got gm's to plant the quest, after about 5 tickets got a response like this:


    "I investigated the character you linked originally. The Game Master that gave them the quest did so without any approval and appears to have had very little knowledge of the repercussions of what they were doing.

    I've informed our management about this situation. We are not starting the quest for players at this time as we have not had the removal of the quest confirmed as a bug. It will remain out of the game until further notice.

    Best regards"

    So yeah, kinda sucks for people like me who completed the grind just after 5.0.4, and then they take it away with no warnings, find it abit odd though..
    So basically if its not a bug, it means it's gone right? Why didnt they warn us? Its kind of a huge trophy, doesnt go well with their desing philosophy (remember naxx drake)

    Really? It takes absolutely forever to get to exalted with the defilers, it's one of the things I'd still consider a damn good achievement in WoW if you've managed that grind after the token handins were gone. Can't believe they'd remove that if it's not a bug.

    Should ask this on either official forums or twitter, and see what they respond with (if anything, I hope). I was planning on getting the tabard during Mists, quite disappointed now.

    That's great loss because Defiler's tabard is best looking tabard in game - I brought two horde chars to exalted only for this. It fits to almost every druid tier (as there is a lot of green colour) and skull symbol looks amazing on undead. I hope its some kind of bug and will be fixed soon.

    That has to be a bug, it hasnt exactly become easier to grind out the rep. Hell it was easier back when you could hand in tokens.
    What strikes me as odd, is that it has been posted on official forums aswell, yet no official blue has replied up till this point.

    Probably to busy in OMGCATPIC posts.

    I got the tabard on my rogue. Did they remove it from ppl who got it during wolk??

    I cant log in to check atm.

    Glad i finished the AB grind last summer, i really hope they reimplement it cause it would suck for ppl to not obtain it anymore.
    imo everyone that got that far with the reputation deserves it, cause it took enough time to get there

    you cant obtain it atm it seems, but they havent removed it from chars who already got it.

    It's a bug, ask a GM to put the quest in your quest log. Seen people do this when they said they couldn't get it.

    Got mine in 2009 on my main and it's still in my bank but evidently not available any more. That's pretty crap tbh considering AB is without doubt the most difficult of the 3 BG's. You're guaranteed small rep in almost every match, but there's no bonus for winning, no bonus for flags getting capped, etc. I suppose they want you to work towards WSG and AV as well just to get a reward for something that is in no way casual or quick to grind.

    Speaking of which, they never implemented those reward titles for getting exalted with the BG's. Conqueror and Justicar (MEEP MEEP!) were always in the game but we were never compensated for earning exalted with Outriders/Silverwing, Frostwolf/Stormpike, or Defilers/Arathor when it was still required for Battlemaster. We weren't compensated at all actually (even after the requirement was removed). I definitely remember reading it (and i looked it up 2-3 weeks ago to be sure) but they never added the titles. I think at the very least, with something as easy as "Jenkins", "the Explorer" and all the world event titles, they should definitely reward those who get exalted with the BG's with a title. Outrider/Sentinel, Defiler/?, perhaps not give a title for AV due to it being a relatively easy grind in comparison (but if for the sake of keeping things equal, add one in anyway). The tabard should also remain available as not only is it a long grind, it's also a 5-cap requirement at the end.

    This was on my "To-do" list before patch 5.0.4

    I guess you didn't read what i wrote, I have asked several GM's to put it in my quest log! I've made 5 tickets in-game and 3 in the account page..
    The GM even commented on planting the quest log "The Game Master that gave them the quest did so without any approval and appears to have had very little knowledge of the repercussions of what they were doing"

    There has been posts on EU forums but no blue ever answers there, and if they answer its some generic bs :P
    If theres anyone concerned from US please try and post about it in US forums since i would really like to get a confirmation for this, never before saw they taking a tabard out of the game without atleast warning about it first!

    That does suck. I was never going to get it, but the tabards were a nice bit of proof that someone spent all that time grinding it.

  19. #19
    Wow... I managed to get the quest done (wasn't pvping much after I got exalted) right before patch. I got lucky. Hopefully they fix it in the future.
