, whether you won or lost.
You can find more information about the
Spirit of Competition event
(deprecated url) on the European World of Warcraft info pages.
Talking to a commoner during the Olympics in any of the capital cities gave you further information on how to gain these items.
Every two years the Spirits of Competition grow especially fervent... and now is that time! We wear this tabard into the Battlegrounds to honor them, seeking to defeat our enemies and earn their favor.
Q: How do I earn a Competitor's Tabard?
A: You need only face our rivals in any of the Battlegrounds. Win or lose, if you stay for the duration of the battle, you will be mailed a
Q: How can I gain the favor of a Spirit of Competition?
A: You must defeat our rivals in any of the Battlegrounds. With every victory, there is a chance that a
will be mailed to you.
You got an in-game mail when you received one of these prizes.
You fought bravely in a battleground and impressed the Spirits of Competition... Well done! As a reward, you have been gifted with this mark of favor; a Competitor's Tabard. Wear it proudly.
You have honored the Spirits of Competition with your fervor in the face of the enemy. Congratulations! With this Gold Medallion, they will be proud to be seen at your side.
There is also a different version of the dragon mini-pet, called the
Essence of Competition
. You can summon (
) it by using an item called the
, which you were able to get by talking to the Battleground Enthusiast in either Ironforge or Orgrimmar, and giving her a secret code.
The Battleground Enthusiast in Ironforge was a female dwarf called
, and she was located in the Hall of Arms in the Military Ward. The Battleground Enthusiast in Orgrimmar was a female orc called
, and she was located in the Hall of the Brave in the Valley of Honor.
You know the Spirits of Competition, yes?
Every two years they draw close to the mortal realm. During such times, members of both the Alliance and Horde wear Competitor's Tabards into the Battlegrounds to honor the spirits, seeking to defeat one another and earn their favor.
I stockpile souvenirs from such turbulent times. If you've learned the proper word, I might be convinced to part with one...
I would like to enter the secret code to receive my Competitor's Souvenir.
While the Essence of Competition could be found next to the Battleground Enthusiasts, it was never released in Europe or the US as a mini-pet for players. (
This pet will not be released on US and EU servers. The NPCs found on those servers to redeem the code are a bug.
Throughout each day of the event in China, the code is mailed to 500 random players. Only players who have achieved various in-game milestones during the event are eligible for a chance to receive the code. Some milestones include having an Arena rating of 1650+, increasing reputation for certain Outland factions from less than revered to exalted, or raising a crafting profession from 350 or less to 375.
Any battleground which you participate in, whether won or lost, will award you with the tabard.
Any battleground which you won may award you with the gold medallion.
You don't need to win 3 (or more) games in a row to get the gold medallion.
You don't need to be #1 in kills or healing etc. to get the gold medallion.
You don't need to be wearing the tabard to get the gold medallion.
The mini-pet seems to be of the same level as the player who acquired it.
Don't go throwing this away just because it's an inventory hog; in Wrath of the Lich King this medallion will be converted to a spell, as will every other minipet, and so you won't need to have this item after that time. But, without it you probably won't be able to get the spell.
New Vanity Pet and Mount changes: Players will now be able to access their non-combat pets and mounts by clicking on the pets tab in the Character Info panel. These pets and mounts will be now learnable much like spells or abilities. Once a vanity pet or mount is learned, the icon will disappear from within a player’s inventory and reappear in the appropriate tab under the pet tab under Character Info. Say goodbye to your vanity pets and mounts taking up bag and bank slots!
Unlike most other pets, you can summon this pet while running.
Ok I have done this on three characters now, if it's just pure luck or coincidence, well, you decide.
1: Enter battleground. Win / Lose = Tabard
2: KEEP TABARD IN MAIL
3: Enter battleground: Win = Pet, on the first win
On another character, I took the tabard out and tried to get the pet, with no luck at all.
I still haven't gotten it on that character.
As I said.. Luck? Coincidence?
I don't qg3qb
10% chance u get it from winning a BG
got this after winning my 12th AV =]
It makes a very soft flapping sound.
Just got this after I finished my second Warsong Gulch battleground. Got the tabard a couple of days ago then go this one today.
It has the same motion as a Wind Serpent.
I won about 15 bgs and still nothing. I must be very unlucky but I keep trying.
On my main, I got the tabard on my first BG and the Gold Medallion on my second BG - both wins. On my alt, I got the tabard in my first BG and have been trying to get the Medallion since the competition started. I've probably won 15 BG's with no Medallion.
I think the base chance you will get this is 10%, but your real chance probably depends on how many people on your team already have one. If nobody has one, then it would be a 10% chance for everyone; If 1 person has one, it would be a little over 11%; and so on.
This is just a possibilty; it might be a flat 10% no matter who has one.
got the gold medaillon, on my very first try on the BG's (never played a BG before ;) )
I'm amazed. I just did the AV Daily today, and got the medalion!
This is Great and Fun thing.Its about15-30%chance that you'll get it.Godd luck guys :-)
1st won AV and medallion was in the mail. I hate BGs and had to attend just one to win the pet. Yay!
I started to play alliance earlier. I got to lvl 10 and did a wsg just to get the tabard we won the bg and i got both the Tabard and the Gold Medal. It is very much possible to get both and to have a lvl 10 with the dragon everyone thinks ur leet :P

The event is over, so this item is No Longer Available to Players I suppose.
will this item still be availble the next olympic event? and can it still been obtained after deleting it?
or can it be bought from a pet vendor that sells qeust rewards pets?... ive read something about that on the forums
this should still be avaliable imo, as teh para olympics are still running
Is it possible to get it ever again :S? Cause he is really cute and nice but beijing 2008 won't come back ever again :(
Sigh, I was in China for 3 months when this came out. Ironically, I was able to visit the Olympics in person, but not in game, and missed this unique pet (and tabard). :(
Next Olympics will be in London, and after that, Rio de Janeiro.
I wonder what could come out of that!
This is by far one of my favorite pet out of my (still expanding) collection of pets.
I especially love to pull this out in front of guildies and have them ask me where I got it.
What's the betting that for london it'll be something completally boring like a british bulldog? <_< For a lot of Scottish folk that would be so off putting.
I'd actually prefer a little red bus as a pet than a dull ugly dog :p it could beep every so often and critters could ride in it!
That or one of our own mythical beasts.
Just for the love of god NOT either of those HORRIBLE MASCOTS!
This was and is my favorite pet. I got it on my main character during the Olympics in '08. I went into a battle ground for fun and got the tabard and the pet on my first try. Sounds like it was a really lucky thing. I'm so glad that I didn't get rid of it from my bag. Now I pull it out all the time and parade it round.
Everytime I think of this pet I'm overwhelmed with sadness. I had this many an age ago, when pets were mere summon/dismiss items (before the pet tab). I was pressed for space one day and went to delete some stuff from my bags and thought I was deleting the Olympic tabard (which imo is ugly). But I had accidentally deleted this.
And now I shall never have this amazing fellow. It was not long after blizz patched both Achievements and the Pet/Mount tabs into the game.
Looks like Blizzard finally found another purpose for this model. It appears that they intend to use this, and other recolored versions of it, as babies of the Cloud Serpents,
as seen here
Luckily i got mine from a random mob and didn't even know about it
hope it and the tabard will eventually become accountbound cause i want this on my main.
That moment when you log into your old characters to find this and get a 2008 (!) Archievment for having it. Check your old characters guys. :D
