Blog Azeroth Shared Topic - What is your favorite vanity item in World of Warcraft?

Tabard of the Lightbringer
Noahdeer of Be MOP posted this weeks Blog Azeroth shared topic. This is hard for me! So much of my bag and bank space is taken up by vanity items. All of which I love and use often. Several transformation items were vying for first place but in the end I had to go with my Tabard of the Lightbringer.

I purchased this during Cataclysm having wanted one since it was added to the game in WotLK. It was quite expensive but well worth it! It comes from one of the quests a player gets when they complete the Shadowmourne chain. One of my other favourite items, Sylvanas' Music Box, is also obtained the same way. The items are BoE so can be traded or sold on the AH.

The tabard is not just a pretty face. It has an on-use effect which is quite eye-catching if not blinding on occasion if you zoom in too close! The buff lasts for 5 minutes on a 30 minute cooldown and stacks with other buffs to give some very interesting effects such as Wisp Amulet (glowing orb), Kang's Bindstone (white glow), Disgusting Oozeling (green glow), Shadowform (purple glow).
The tabard effect with the Wisp Amulet!

It doesn't always match my transmog so I don't wear it unless I have a blue mog usually. This is what happened when I went to get it from the bank... clearly I have been playing too much Horde!

Hey! This isn't the Alliance bank!
