It’s not that often that I get to post about Guild accomplishments so I’m happy to say that we finally reached another general milestone. I noticed that we were somewhat close (at least compared to some other achievements) when we started levelling in Pandaria so I was checking the achievement every now and then to see how we were going.
The other night I was working on my Archaeology and was trading in my restored artifacts late one night when I accidentally hit my dagger icon instead of opening my Arch journal as I was leaving. This is the second time I’ve done this in a few weeks but instead of checking my friends list to see if someone could rez me at the Seat of Knowledge, I released and spoke the the spirit healer just outside our city.
OUCH! 254 Gold plus rez sickness.
The latter I didn’t mind so much as I wasn’t really doing much at the time but the next day as I repaired in the Shrine of Two Moons it happened – the Guild achievement came up. It is true what they say, it really DOES add up.
Next one will probably be the Critter Kill Squad with under 7000 to go… they make it a lot easier in Pandaria though, unlike the poor sheep in Uldum (which are no longer critters).
In other news, I managed to get nine golden chests from my solo scenario this week. So close! But considering I had six in the first room, one in the hallway and then fell short in the second room, I have an idea for next week since it’s the last achievement I need for In the Halls of the Thunder King. Then in Ulduar we managed to get a fragment by doing the council on hard mode killing the big one last. I look forward to going back in there later this weekend to kill more of the later ones.
By now, many of you have followed my Cymre Jones adventures which have been a lot of fun to share. At first it was really just an natural progression of my love of Archaeology as I adopted the surname that brought Harrison Jones to the game.
Over time, as her experiences grew and interests diversified, she thrived on finding new artifacts and treasures across all the zones of Pandaria. As a reflection of this, her attire began to incorporate some of these new additions.
Some time later, I wanted to go for a slightly more feminine approach dropping the vest for good.
But with more Lara Croft and less Harrison Jones in mind, I had a good look at what I would like as her ‘ideal’ outfit (which has no armour limitations) so the shared topic I suggested last year would follow my latest selection rather than the one I suggested for the post. I’m not sure if her title quite fits now either but a lot of NPCs don’t have titles anyway.
So here she is – my would-be NPC in-game. There’s no harm in wishing is there?
Green Arrow is a vigilante superhero who fights crime using archery, martial arts and technology. Otherwise known as Oliver Queen, living in Star City as a wealthy playboy and billionaire industrialist turned outspoken liberal politician. He is the leader of Team Arrow; he has also been a member of the Justice League and the Outsiders.

It’s been a while since I’ve worked on a Super Sunday post so this Green Arrow draft sat in my folder for months where it remained… until now. I was a fan of this character in Smallville (even before I knew who he was) although I wasn’t a big fan of his costume at the time. His gadgets and weapon of choice kind of made up for it though as well as the actor they used to portray him.
Then with the new Arrow series, I’ve been able to watch the first two episodes and I’m liking what I see. David Nutter (who also directed Smallville’s pilot episode) wanted more of a darker undertone for the series – much like the Dark Knight movies – and the new costume certainly fits this idea.
Here’s the one I originally created based on the Smallville model, then later with an updated bow.
But with such a limited choice of bows in the game, I decided to wait until some new designs were added. A while ago, Cool linked this unique ranged weapon model which made me think of Green Arrow again so following the darker and harder-edged version of the new series, I gave it another go. Turns out the design didn’t quite fit with what I had in mind but feeling inspired, I had a play anyway.
Even though he doesn’t appear to have a distinct green tone to his costume in Arrow, I decided to use a brighter piece to finish it off.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of my Super Sunday series :)
