Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade
NB: Today’s date is July 9, 2016. Some of this information is from the Beta Legion and could change!
The Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade is a rare drop off of Armsmaster Harlan in the (normal) Scarlet Halls dungeon. The dungeon is level 30. One can re-run a dungeon ten times in an hour before being cut off until that next hour is over.
It took me 13 tries on my Druid and over 50 on my Hunter.
Once I won the rare tabard, I did a character copy to the Beta.
On the Beta, there is a new NPC at the Darkmoon Faire called the Scarlet Quartermaster. She is back in the corner behind the zoo area. If you talk to her, she will (pretty much) cuss you out.
If you are wearing your Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade, she will talk to you. As a Quartermaster, she has some goods.
For my Druid, there was one item listed to buy. The Cropped Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade currently goes for 25,000 gold. It is identical to the original except that it is cropped at the waist, looking like it is tucked in without that dangly part below.
For my Hunter, I could also buy a mail transmog set for 10,000 gold. Chest, hands, waist and legs in the “Scarlet Crusade” motif. The set was called Ensemble: Chain of the Scarlet Crusade; a single token that you click to open up the set.
I’ve read on WowHead that there will be a set for plate wearers also but none for the leather and cloth crowd. Otherwise, there is nothing else on the NPC to buy.
I won’t know until the pre-expansion patch (and needing the Darkmoon Faire) if the transmog version of the tabard is enough or you need the actual piece to talk to the NPC. In any case, if you don’t have the Tabard now; you might is well go do some dungeon running!
