Over the weekend I wanted to go and see Theramore for the last time as it was probably going to be the last time that I saw the place – the way it is now. It brought back memories of when I levelled my Priest through the zone. I was antsy to get there as I needed to go to the profession guy there. I think it was the tailor, or maybe enchanting.
So I flew Cool over there pausing just outside the walls to take a few pics while I wondered where Jaina might be. Theramore was just as I remember, peaceful and quiet.
Cool told me she was in the tower so I flew us through the doorway and ran up. Not surprisingly, we were followed by some not so friendly guards. We made it up top to find quite a few NPCs attacking us but took care of them easily. Jaina however was more of a formidable foe – as you’d expect. The first time we both died and on the way back I wanted to see if I could take a good shot of her. I was happy to see she didn’t attack me even though I was almost in arms length of her.
So we gave it another try and by the time Cool had died, I was teleported outside to the lake. It was quite funny when I told him what happened to me but it was a lot of fun to go back and remember how it was before it’s changed forever. Although we can always look back through our pictures and relive our memories.
Here we are, past the half-way mark for the Mogolympics. This week revealed the results for the Wrestling, Javelin and Archery events.
- Wrestling – Using one of the “championship” belts, design your own Azerothian pro wrestler
- Javelin – Build an outfit around the polearm of your choice
- Archery – Build an outfit around your favourite bow
Here are my contributions:
Head: Arc-Scorched Helmet
Shoulder: Spaulders of Incoherence
Chest: Combat Training Vest
Belt: Firemend Cinch
Gloves: Gauntlets of Completion
Legs: Swiftarrow Leggings
Boots: Cleated Ice Boots
I originally used a male Draenei for this event but ended up using him elsewhere. Then I thought about what races were left and felt the Pandaren could pull the look off even better. I fell in love with this outfit and model as soon as I switched the race. In fact, I think it’s my favourite design out of the bunch.
Head: Crown of Flame
Shoulder: Bloodlust Epaulets
Chest: Glimmering Mail Breastplate
Belt: Masterwork Girdle
Gloves: Magnificent Gauntlets
Legs: Glimmering Mail Legguards
Boots: Triumphant Sabatons
Polearm: Blood-Tempered Ranseur
This set was going to be used for the Archery event with the Sunfury Bow in Kara but when I saw the polearm, I decided to swap my Archery and Javelin models. Looks like my gamble worked :)
Head: Guise of the Tidal Lurker
Shoulder: Soul Eater Shoulderguard
Chest: Grizzly Jerkin
Belt: Belt of Potent Chanting
Gloves: Shardtooth Gloves
Legs: Stormrage Legguards
Boots: Mindstrainer Treads
Ranged: Skyfire Hawk-Bow
My first thought consisted of a female Night Elf wearing a lot of brown and green leather pieces while wielding a leafy green bow but due to the weapon change above, I was able to follow through with my original idea.
I’m so excited by my first medal considering there’s a lot of stiff competition :D
