Achievement Earned: Endured the Quest "Unleash Hell"

Here are the steps to complete this achievement. 

Step 1. Purchase Mists of Pandaria. Stay up late and be very excited!
Step 2. Accept quests in Stormwind that lead you to talk to Sky ADMIRAL Rogers. Not AIRMAN Rogers. Sit around and wait for said NPC to help finish your quest. Realize you and hundreds of other people are talking to the wrong NPC. 

Step 3. Finally reach the continent Pandaria. Reach there under interesting circumstances wherein the airship is missing.... As a result you fall to your death and have to hearth to Stormwind and start over.

Step 4. Accept the quest "Unleash Hell." Wait to board gyrocopter for 30 min. 
Do you notice the 2 identical toons down below?
Yeah, that's me. Lag was pretty bad...
Step 5. Make sure you have 1.5 hours to spare to complete this quest! Your gyrocopters are also very talented and like to do air acrobatics. See below screenshot for example: 

Congratulations! You have completed the achievement! ;)

Footnote: Yes, it was pretty bad to get to the continent and complete the first several quests. But after a couple of hours I was able to progress and get some normal questing in. I am halfway through 85 as of 6am PST. Good luck to all you fellow adventurers! 

Mogolympics: Javelin, Fencing, Freestyle, Equestrian

I'm finally getting this out there, but here is the last of the entries!

Javelin, a look based around the pole-arm Ranseur of Hatred.
Look found here

One of my personal favorites was the Fencing. I plan to create a transmog look very similar for my warrior. I love how the white and gold of the weapon match up perfectly to the armor. P.S. This time around I will choose different boots to wear. Looking back, these boots do not match up as seamlessly as I'd like. :P
Fencing look book (haha)
Now on to the Freestyle! The idea behind this entry is to build your own NPC. I went with a troll voodoo priest. I've always been a big troll fan and I love their story around voodoo and such. Also, I love the fact that her dagger has a matching off-hand! It's very fitting and I was tickled pink when I found that.

Dis troll is lookin' da voodoo.

 Lastly, the Equestrian event! Wow, there were SO MANY awesome entries! When putting my entry together I chose to match up with the Human Paladin Charger. If I ever leveled up a Paladin I think I would create a transmog based around the shield and epic sword.

All in all, the Transmogolympics were a success! It was so fun to participate in them and even more fun to see the results! Congrats to all the medal winners and kudos to everyone who participated  :D
