Tabards for the Thrifty

Continuing in our series of "Achievements for the Thrifty" I decided to look at the 25 Tabards Achievement. This is actually the LAST in a series of three tabard related achievements in the "General Achievement" category and one of the easiest to obtain.

HOWEVER if you are like me even spending 80 silver for a tabard to gain an achievement is annoying so we will look first at all the tabards you can get for relatively nothing more than TIME and go on to end with those that will cost you *gasp* REAL money...

With the induction of the Argent Tournament doing this achievement with out putting a lot of financial investment is MORE than obtainable.

I have since discovered that the Argent Tournament Tabards do NOT seem to count towards this achievement. As this is appearing to be the case I would hazard a guess that the new Arena Achievement Tabards may ALSO not count towards it as well. This leaves only the other 58 Tabards mentioned.
