This Month’s Bonus Reward

Mount- Savage Green Battle Turtle

Complete activities to fill the bar at the top of the Traveler’s Log found in the Adventure Guide (Shift-J)***, and you’ll receive this month’s bonus reward— the Savage Green Battle Turtle Mount.

How it Works

Get Tender Every Month

At the first of each month, players with an active account in good standing will receive 500 Trader’s Tender automatically every month from a chest called the Collector’s Cache. If you don’t have active game time on your account or aren’t a subscriber at the start of a new month, don’t worry. Your Tender will be awarded on the first day of the month when you do have game time or an active subscription. This will be the same amount for everyone, regardless of how you pay for your game time.

The Traveler's Log

Complete monthly activities listed in the new Traveler’s Log. Each month features a rotating, themed set of activities. These activities provide the opportunity to earn up to 500 additional Trader’s Tender. There’s only a set amount of Tender you can earn each month through completing activities, so you won’t need to complete all the ones in the log each month. You’ll be able to pick and choose from a variety of fun in-game activities to easily earn Tender. Players can choose to earn by continuing to play the game as they already do, such as completing quests, competing in battlegrounds, participating in holiday activities, and even running Mythic+ dungeons. But you can also choose to take part in activities uniquely designed for the month.

Freeze an Item

Before the month comes to an end, if you haven’t purchased that one “must-have” item yet, don’t worry. You can “freeze” an item so you can purchase it later. When you freeze an item, it will stay available month over month until it is purchased or replaced.

If this month’s offerings didn’t have the items you wanted, you can hang on to your Trader’s Tender to spend later. It won’t go anywhere, and unspent Tender will continue to accumulate each month.

What a Tender Moment

As a way of saying “Thank you” to the community for continuing to play World of Warcraft with us, we are awarding a bonus 500 Trader’s Tender to players who purchase Dragonflight and add it to their account†. This bonus Trader’s Tender will also be rewarded retroactively to players who have already purchased Dragonflight. Players can collect this bonus Trader’s Tender from their Collector’s Cache.

Learn more about the Trading Post in our previously published news post on the official site.

*The Trading Post feature is not available in WoW Classic titles.
**Requires World of Warcraft Subscription or Game Time
***Requires Level 10 to access the Adventure Guide.
†Bonus Trader’s Tender is granted only once per account.

    Yeah only swim speed sadly. the buff say ''Increases swin speed by 100%'' And when you mount it on land it runs super slow

    Have to agree that this month's trading post items are forgettable.

    The "Ensemble: Vagabond’s Snowy Threads" is much more gray in the game than the image provided by Blizzard indicates. Very disappointing.

    Alright, here we go:

    Uhhhhh... Wow. There's not a single thing here that I actually LIKE that's reasonably priced. There's a few items that are borderline good, but nothing I can comfortably put into this category.

    High Priestess's Ceremonial Drape - As a rule of thumb, if I call a 50 Tender item bad, it's a real stinker. You can't really go wrong with something that's borderline free. I'm hard-pressed to think of many mogs it would actually work with, but it's at least kinda pretty on its own?
    Huntsman's Recurve Bow - See my previous point about 50-tender items. I do have a soft spot for higher-res "simple" weapons, but Bows are a very easy weapon type to find "simple" transmogs for. Pick basically any Vanilla leveling bow and you're good. And that's why I can't tier it higher.
    Sharpened Shank - This is borderline Good. It at least stands out a decent bit compared to other "simple" daggers, and the price is good, but it's missing that "something". Not sure what, though.
    Ensemble: Vagabond's Snowy Threads / Ensemble: Wanderer's Snowy Trappings - Oh look, another pair of Cloak with or without hood. White's pretty easy to combo with other pieces, so I will give it that. The Threads do feel borderline overpriced, however.
    Sunbleached Grimskull Cinch/Well-Worn Grimskull Cinch - An actual new model apparently, that's neat. Plus, it could work well with a good couple of sets. Only thing really setting these back is the abundance of other "flashy" belts out there. Both are borderline Good overall.
    Black Iron Blunderbuss - I do like this recolor, and if it was a bit cheaper, I'd throw it into Good. 200 feels like a tad much.
    Lost Crown of the Arcane - This is a pretty recolor of the Ragnaros headpiece. However, similar to the Blunderbuss, 200 is a bit much, especially for a slot that's less visible, albeit not by a lot.
    Tiercel's Wing - Arakkoa stuff is neat. I COULD bump it up to good, but I'd need to see it in action to make that decision.
    Ensemble: Vestment of the Honored Valarjar - I really, REALLY like this recolor. If it didn't basically eat the entire month's worth of tender, it would be solid. But 850 is just too harsh to really go for.
    Savage Green Battle Turtle - That is one detailed turtle mount. If it is indeed swim speed only, that effectively means it's a (relatively) easy-to-get niche mount. So I can't knock it too hard just because of that.

    Pippin - To Pippin's credit, it's a recolor of a pet that isn't exactly super easy to acquire, with a moveset more akin to a pet that also isn't exactly super easy to acquire. However, 600 is still pretty steep for what is, again, a recolor.
    Merciless Trapper's Staff - It's an okay mog I guess, but 150 feels a bit steep for what it is.
    Crimson Bicorne - There's plenty of pirate hats already available. Get one of those instead.
    Fang of the Mountain - 400 Tender is over-the-top for a recolor of a fairly underwhelming sword model.
    Ensemble: Kvaldir Scout Leathers - 750 Tender for this? Credit where credit's due, it's one of the relatively few Leather sets that actually looks like, well, leather, but that's about all I can say of it.

    Overall, nothing truly amazing, but a decent bit of almost-good. If I were a buyer, I'd possibly swipe up the headpiece, maybe the gun. But this does feel like a "Save-up" month.

    This might be a little more accurate, IMO.

    I only bought the pet. I thought about the recolor of the Valor raid but at the end of the day it wasn’t worth the price. Hoping next months is better.

    Turtle is very overdetailed, doesn't really match the game...

    Problem is that the items were still encrypted so it showed up at blue/white cubes for the helm and weapon and neon green for the cloak.
    And then making it purple, way to go blizz. Derp.

    I wasnt expecting much from this, ita better then what I had in mind.

    I'm not 100% sure about it yet, but definitely gonna see if i like it enough.

    Also i still have that starry horse in the freezer, i am still not sure i actually want it, i have plenty of tender. But on the other hand: Horse-in-a-freezer jokes.
    I'd really like to get the rest of the basic look weapons (love that simple recurve bow), but it adds up to a bit more than the last two months. And I sense this is a set up to dropping something expensive everyone will want in the coming months. As for the horse, I actually had it. Got it in a discounted mount bundle back during MoP.
