Mogolympics: Hammer throw, Discus, Wrestling, Archery

Bah, how did I get behind on Mogolympics? A combination of RL work and sickness has put me under the weather for the past week. 

First up, Hammer Throw! I tend to favor clean, light armor looks if I use an in-your-face weapon. The plate set I used, Mithril Plate, is based around this awesome 2H Mace, Demise

The Discus Event began week number two. This is one of my favorite sets I put together! And by reading the commentary provided by one of the judges I received a pretty good score! I think I tied for the bronze or something very close (a 5-way tie, probably). They just gave out a gold and three silvers. So far, this even is my favorite. There were a LOT of awesome transmogs that looked brilliant.

Next we have Wrestling! I didn't want to do a normal-looking WWE wrestler. That created the idea of doing a Luchidor! (Nacho Libre may or may not have influenced that thought :P). 

The most recent event was Archery! I loved looking at all the different sets! It made me want to play on my hunter and get her looking snazzy. I really liked the transmog set I came up with, even though it might be labeled as a "cookie-cutter" look. I would still use it on my hunter.

Mogolympics: Cycling Event

The first event of the Mogolympics has been posted: Cycling! Here was the criteria for this event:
"Build a biker outfit to compliment the Chopper.  It must be either Leather or Mail."

I wanted my biker outfit to be black and red to match the Horde's Chopper. I also used leather.

Overall, I was really pleased with the look. My only critique was the black: are there ANY plain-black pieces in game? To go with the boots? I wanted to use the boots badly but I had a hard time finding anything to match. There were about 50 different shades of black (hehe). I was really determined to include the boots ;)

And for those wondering what the pieces are, I have everything set up on this Transmogger link!

My story and Seeking for leather

I started playing WoW 4 years ago this month and my first toon I rolled was a human rogue. She was basically my main up until Cata launched; that's when I rerolled a shaman on Proudmoore, Satsuri. At that point I was in LOVE with the playstyle of shamans and Satsuri became my main at that point. My army of alts slowly transferred over to Proudmoore, my rogue included. I felt a little guilty with switching mains, almost as if I was betraying my faithful rogue. My rogue has tons of achievements/mounts/other accomplishments, too, which made it a little harder to switch mains. 

I'm in the middle of a D & D campain right now, playing a rogue scoundrel. Playing a rogue in D & D put the bug in my head to dust off my rogue and maybe do some achievements. And holy cow, I forgot how fun it was to be a rogue on WoW! I missed the simple playstyle, not to mention it's just cool to play a rogue sometimes! She also looks cool; of course, I have her all mogged up. :P

I decided to start working on the Loremaster and Seeker achievements. It's something I attempted on my rogue about 2 years ago before Cata came out. A combination of real life stuff (moving across state) and a fear of world pvp (haha, I hate pvp servers) soon stopped my attempts at these achievements. 

I just accomplished The Seeker achievement this evening (3000 quests)! Woot! I also finished up all the Outland quest achievements. I have to admit, account-wide achievements were a HUGE motivation to get this done! And since the quest achievements are account-wide as well I can get Loremaster done easily. Satsuri has taken care of the Loremaster of Cataclysm. My rogue is taking care of Loremaster of Outland and Northrend since she is already almost done. My warlock leveled up through questing after Cata dropped so she has several zones done for Loremaster of Kalimdor and EK. She will be finishing those up. I'm hoping Blizzard won't change this perk; it would mess up my whole plan! 0.o

Well, that ended up being a lot longer than I intended. Now, on to the mogs...

My rogue had her set of Tier 9 (she's a Wrath baby), which I love and looks very rogue-like. 

Between all the quest rewards and mob drops I put together a new set for her! I love this black and blue set. I just love everything about it. It's perfect for a rogue!

Edit: Dont' forget to check out the Mogolympics here! It started today! I'm looking forward to the coming weeks to see what everyone put together for mogs. Oh, and my flagbearer was the Consortium.

Mogging faves of Proudmoore

With sooooo many players on the Proudmoore server I can easily sit back and just people watch (toon watch? eh, whatever). The mogging on this server is really great! Here are a few stellar mog outfits I've encountered. [disclaimer: the screenshots are not the best, it is hard to get a good one with a million people crowding around so I decided to go with "inspect" :P]

One of my favorite armor sets put to good use. 

I'm loving how the staff pairs nicely with the armor.

I adore this! These shoulders are on my wishlist.

I'd like to try this out on my own enhance shammy. 

This mog is totally awesome! He put it together very well.

One of the first mog outfits I encountered.
I love how the tabard is paired with the set.

Simple black cloth with a crazy awesome weapon.

The entries are in!

I did it! I completed 10 transmog sets for the Mogolympics. The deadline was July 31. I have to admit, I might have procrastinated a tiny bit (editing screens/typing out armor pieces), but I made it. I'm so excited to see how everything goes! I'm also looking forward to seeing all the other entries. It is so fun to see what other people come up with in mogging :D

"How the crap do I balance on this thing?"
