Change the on use ability to be "You learn how to cast: Teleport:Argent Tournament Grounds" or something similar. Have the tabard be consumed by the spell and added to the tabard pulldown when used the first time after the patch.This solution allows you to have the pulldown and get rid of the item while retaining the on use ability.Do the same for other tabards with on use abilities.

This would be an excellent idea for certain tabards, for sure.

And have the Tabard's on-use ability be treated like a racial ability once learned? That's rather brilliant. *thumbs up*

The only complication I see with this idea is that the ability that some tabards have is to award reputation points from dungeon kills. That sort of ability can't work the way you describe, because you would effectively gain reputation with every faction for whom you have a tabard simultaneously. That would be great, but obviously is not going to happen.

I am not sure of Angus' idea after it has been added to pulldown, but here's how I always imagined it;When you select a tabard from the pulldown list it appears in your tabard slot just like today and you could use whatever on-use effect it has just like today. In the same way you would only gain reputation with whatever tabard you had displayed.

I think that would work really well. @ Broose the difference is the "on use" tabards cast a spell while the rep tabards provide a buff. Just owning the rep tabard doesnt give the rep bonus, you actually have to wear it. so having the tabard in a special tabard inventory wouldn't effect your rep any more than keeping a rep tabard in your bag.

I think a tab that works like the pet and mount tabs would be better than a key ring type bag or drop down, so you can preview what it looks like before selecting one.Picking a tabard to match your gear from a dropdown of 20+ tabards without being able to preview it would be pretty annoying.

I was think of something similar. You can learn, then lose, then relearn spells, right? You do it when you switch specs or respec. So it IS possible. Couldn't changing your tabard from a dropdown list be similar to chancing specs? When you change to a certain tabard, you gain the spell Portal: Argent Tournament or the passive ability "Champion of the Dragonmaw", then when you switch out, it goes away.
