When the replica sets came out for our old PVP titles, I was excited about mogging my beloved Rank 10 outfit. It’s been a while since I did that but even though I’m still levelling in Pandaria, I decided to get my old set out again to match my old Lieutenant Commander title.

Reins of the Golden King

Then in Cata, I was envious when I found out the Alliance would have such an awesome looking Guild perk at 25; so I did the next best thing and tamed Sambas on my hunter. Last year, I was able to purchase the Reins of the Golden King from the Guild I was in at the time but how nice does it look with my PVP set?

However, when I was going through my mount journal yesterday, I noticed something I had not expected. A while ago, Tome had written about her Operation: Shieldwall Grand Gryphon which looked so gorgeous, I was tempted to level my priest up just to do the same thing. But I thought I would have to level up my Shieldwall rep just to get that mount and the Grand Armored Gryphon as well. But guess what was waiting for me to get out and ride…

Grand Armored Gryphon

That’s right baby, no grinding necessary since I’m already exalted with the Horde equivalent! Woot!
