Tip of the Day-Tol Barad tabard

  Looking for something to do while waiting for Warlords of Draenor? One of the items I've been spending the last few weeks acquiring is the Tol Barad tabard( Horde:  http://www.wowhead.com/item=63378 , Alliance: http://www.wowhead.com/item=63379) . It is basically an extra hearth back to Orgrimmar/Stormwind. If you are placing your hearthstone at the Ashran capitals, you have a hearthstone for your garrison, there are times when you just need to get back to your faction's main city for whatever reason. Not all of my characters are in a guild, so hearthstones are on 30 minute cooldown and no option for the guild cloaks. So Tol Barad tabard it is.

 These tabards are available to Honored and cost 40 Tol Barad Commendations. If your faction has control of the lower island with the extra dailies, then you could get your tabard is as few as 4-5 days. And being level 90, the quests are easy to plow through and yet the mobs are green level and gathering ears for the Darkmoon strength quest is easy. Not to mention selling all embersilk cloth, and savage leather if you are a skinner, on the auction house.

  I know most people reading won't need this extra route to your faction capital, like I said, with 15 minute hearth, guild cloaks, etc. But in my opinion you can't go wrong having yet another way back when you need it. Plus the tabards are rather stylish with the Horde being mostly black with red trim and Horde symbol on the front, Alliance being a brown with eagle face on front.

Coming later...after maintenance...Transmog Tuesday!
