WoW: Classic - How to get Tabard of the Protector

The Tabard of the Protector item is the only Classic tabard with a cosmetic on-use effect, making it a must-have for WoW: Classic players across Azeroth. 

On use, the item creates a Holy Nova flash of light and also causes your character to flex. It has a 5-minute cooldown.

To get the Tabard of the Protector in WoW: Classic, simply follow the steps below.

  • Launch WoW: Classic and head to the Badlands.
  • Locate the Dark Portal.
  • Find an NPC called Argent Emissary Proudwell.
  • Accept the quest "Into the Breach".
  • Kill 6 Invading Felguards.
  • Return to Argent Emissary Proudwell to claim your reward.

While getting the Tabard of the Protector in WoW: Classic might seem easy, it might not be. This is due to so many players converging on the Dark Portal in the Badlands.

Players will need to tag (hit first) a total of six Felguards, which means you might take quite some time before getting the quest done. Lastly, you do need a level 55 or higher character for the quest to become available.

The quest will only be available until 1st June 2021, and since it might take some time to complete, players should start as soon as possible.
