There are times when you just want to take things out on the trolls, especially when they won’t drop your last two journals for the Zandalari Library Card. I’ve been playing around with one of my newest playthings, first getting it on my hunter when I was farming the last of my skyshards. A few days ago, I also managed to get another bindstone on Cymre so I decided to head to the Isle of Thunder and create my own stone garden.
Now just to wait for the patch…
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.
