Mopping Things Up: A very belated achievement

     Back in Cataclysm when I was a very new player and first took up paladin tanking with Rim I saw far more of all the heroics than I ever wanted. but I also had a guild full of people at the beginning and had a lot of good times that make me a bit nostalgic for them to this day.  Also back in Cataclysm as a fairly new tank I did almost every achievement for Glory of the Cataclysm Hero. All but two to be exact: I Hate that Song and Umbrage for Umbriss.
     In September I went back to Halls with Rim on a whim and surprised myself by knocking out the first of the two, but it wasn't until today that I finally sat down and flew over to Grim Batol for the last one. I probably could have done them last expansion or at least much sooner on another character, but I wanted to finish like I'd started. So it had to be Rim.
     And one more mount for the collection:
     This is 224. And it feels good to finally have it done.

RP Characters and Mogs: Taelathin Firehawk

     Here's another RP mog. It's one I've used in bits and pieces leveling since level 40 with additions as he reaches the levels to mog the pieces I want. He's only 88, but I think this one is done. This is Taelathin Firehawk, beast mastery hunter, part time relic hunter, and man of the wild. (He's also Tai's second cousin.)
     I wanted something simple and in muted greens and browns for Lathin, and I've always meant to make a mog that involves this bow, though I didn't realize until I finally did just how much fun the animation for it is. This transmog has two modes. One with helm hidden for every day and one with it shown and a shirt added for extra camouflage since bright red hair can be a bit flashy.
Shoulders: Fortified Spaulders
Wrists: Not shown
     For the sneaky version used for stalking trolls I've shown the helm and added: Green Martial Shirt. The Embroidered Shirt looks even better to me so I will likely begin using that one as soon as I am willing to shell out 1000 gold for it.
     Bonus shot to show off how nifty that bow is.

RP Characters and Mogs: Heryneth Starstride

     Other than raiding I've mostly been dabbling in RP lately, leveling a couple of other characters on Vae's server to play over there. This gives a great excuse for transmogging, especially with lower level stuff that can be used and acquired while leveling. So here are the leveling transmogs for one of my new characters.
     Heryneth Starstride is an assassin who masquerades as a traveling musician to put his victims at ease, so he tends toward pretty bright colored leathers suitable for performing.

Waist: Robust Girdle

Head: Not Shown
Waist: Mighty Girdle
