I've been playing since vanilla, since many changes come and go. When Tabards for major cities became a part of the leveling process it was something to aspire to. But once you get to exalted status all I can acquire as proof is a cloak. I play both factions for the love of lore and perspective, why not allow player access to transmog if not full sets of major city gear to show they strive to protect and serve where they come from. New factions of local militia or national guard based rewards. What blood elf wouldnt love to have a set of gear like the tower shield carrying guards with a dble sword to boot.
