Playing with Plate

I was looking around on MogIt (big surprise) the other day and put together some incredibly sweet sets! I was on my warrior alt at the time so she is modeling every single one of them.

These first four are the same armor set but I have a hard time choosing a final weapon. What do you think?

Gavel of Qiraji Authority



Dark Iron Sunderer

I am in LOVE with this pink-themed set! I swear, the Bloodforged set was made for these shoulders. AND, even the mace is a 100% match. It's destiny ;)

My warrior has the plans to make these Swiftsteel Shoulders. I have two sets in mind. One is a silver-gold theme and the latter is full gold armor.
Mix and match pieces with Stormrune Edge

Conqueror's set with Cataclysmic Gladiator's Greatsword
 The guards in all the capital cities look great in their armor. Here's my (bad) attempt at a Darnassian Sentinal

This isn't a plate set, but it's a set I love very much! I put it together as part of the Mogolympics (Javelin entry) then decided to go another route at the last minute. It's the Dragonstalker recolored set with a few different pieces mixed in.

Yes, you heard that right: Mogolympics!

I was visiting Amateur Azerothian and saw the special mog event he set up to coincide with the Summer 2012 Olympics in London.

Of course, as a transmog addict, how could I not join up?!

Medal even rules are as follows (taken directly from the Mogolympics web page):

  • Archery – Build an outfit around your favourite bow.
  • Cycling – Build a biker outfit to compliment the Chopper.  It must be either Leather or Mail.
  • Discus – Build an outfit around one of the shield skins seen here
  • Equestrian – Build an outfit to compliment one of the horse mounts in the game.  (Faction limitations apply, so no Orcs on a Stormwind pony)
  • Fencing – Time for some swordplay.  Build your best outfit around the 1h sword of your choice.
  • Javelin – Build an outfit around the polearm of your choice.
  • Hammer Throw – Build an outfit around your favourite two-handed hammer.
  • Wrestling – We’re going to deviate from olympic wrestling and go to the sports entertainment aspect instead.  Using one of the “championship” belts, design your own Azerothian pro wrestler.  Think of the oversized belts, such as the Firemend Cinch seen here.
  • Freestyle – Build your own NPC. Could be an innkeeper, could be the Green Orc Lantern.  Doesn’t matter.
 Rules and details are: 
  • There is NO limit on the number of participants.
  • 9 competition outfits.  At least 5 different races must be used, never repeating the same gender/race combo (if you use Blood Elf Male for Javelin, you can’t make a Blood Elf Male for Discus.  You could however make it female so long as you aren’t submitting a Blood Elf Female in any other event).  Your flagbearer combo may be used in a competition event.
  • Your event entry must be able to use the outfit as a proper end-game transmog (so no Gnomes in Shaman gear or Goblin Rogues entering the discus)
  • Include the gear you used for each outfit please (the judges can peg many articles from in-game, but can’t always tell what everything is).
  • All entries are to be submitted at once.  Send the screenshots to arcanewordsmith@gmail.com
  • As per Mog Madness, MogIt and ModelViewer entries are welcome.
  • We’ll reveal three events a week for three weeks, beginning August 12th.  Medals will be handed out accordingly.
  • I have set no criteria for fellow judges (still confirming who the official judges will be).  They will simply give their rankings based on their own thoughts.  However, they’ll not know who they’re voting on (it will be labelled as Outfit D, rather than “Tome,” for example).
  • The winner will have received the most medals in the nine events.
After throwing my name in, my flagbearer will be representing...........

The Consortium!

I am very excited to represent the smugglin' ethereal's faction!

My hubby, who also plays WoW, wanted in on the action so he's signed up, too. His faction is the Wildhammer Clan (an awesome faction to mog IMO).

Flagbearer and medal outfits to come!

Call of the Elements: Fire

When mogging was first announced I went to work immediately to set up a cool set. My main is a shaman and I thought how appropriate it was to base some of her mog sets after the elements. The very first mog I had was themed "Fire."
The set is basically the Earthfury recolor, seen here on WoW Roleplay Gear. I made a few modifications to the helm and belt. The mace I'm duel-wielding drops from H Old Hillsbrad Foothills (true story, it took a whole month for it to drop >< ). 

Close up! That helm is one of my favorites. 

For flavor I love getting out the matching companion pets and mounts :) Core hound pup was my favorite match for a pet. The Flameward Hippogryph was an obvious choice as a mount. Plus, I worked hard to get that beauty! Of course I wanted to show him off.

3 core hounds! 
Goin' around Azeroth in this pretty baby :)

Let's do this!

First post! For ages I've wanted to put some sort of World of Warcraft blog together as an outlet. Now, with transmogging a HUGE part of the game, how can I NOT put a blog together?! ;) IRL I love clothes and that is the same in WoW -- I love transmogging and I love cool looking gear.
