End of the Mogolympics

The Olympics have come to an end! Check out my page for all my outfits!

I was amazed at the oufits people put in and have found some new items I am going to have to try and find, then replicate outfits.

Overall I won a silver medal for my hammer throw design and I was so ecstatic to even have been considered for a medal.

Silver medal winner!

I also came close on another outfit, but overall I was thrown out of the packs pretty early 🙂

I think the judges must have had a horrible time trying to sort through over 40 entries for each event, I think they did a fantastic job sticking with it.

I guess the thing with transmog is it is a very personal thing, the outfits I preferred were generally earlier on in the events, and didn’t make it very far into the placings.  However I was having fun trying to guess who did what outifts based on their own personal styles 🙂

Overall, it was fantastic, and I think everyone had a great time doing it and participating in the event.  I am jealous that my outfits didn’t win every single event – except for my discus event which even I thought sucked!  I am also jealous that I didn’t get to judge them either…HAAHHA !!  cake and eat it syndrome I know 🙂

JD has even created an entire website dedicated to all the outfits – it will be updated over time so be sure to keep checking it out 🙂

This was one of the most exciting things I have ever done in the community, and I have amazed myself at how insane I got about checking websites for updates, and comparing all the outfits and just drooling over shields, headpieces, weapons…words can not express how awesome this was 🙂

Thanks everyone who was involved with this. You are all awesome.

Transmogolympics – Hammer Throw!!

JD has done the most awesome commentary on the Hammer throws!!

I have been laughing like a maniac since I started reading…

Here is the post he has up 🙂  

The winner – Undercity!

Gold Medal Winner!!

From the looks of it, I appear to have a silver medal in the Hammer Throw 🙂  SQUEEEEE!!  Check out my transmog page for my outfit!  I think I have checked the post over 5 times to make sure I am reading it right, that I won a medal, I am so happy 🙂 I was hoping to win just one, I can die now 🙂

Transmogolympics Update

It is on!!!

Apparently of the 77 entrants we only had approx 50 people pass the time trials, so poor judges now have two weeks to get them all sorted and voted.  Of course I am going to win every event so I think we could just end it all here right?? HA!

I wish.

Anyway the schedule is as follows :

  • Week One: Hammer Throw, Cycling, Discus
  • Week Two: Archery, Javelin, Wrestling
  • Week Three: Freestyle, Equestrian, Fencing

I think all of us are now just standing around freaking out about the waiting time, I know it is only a couple of weeks, but I want to see all the outfit and compare my awesome to everyone else’s 🙂

Updated Information

Good Luck to everyone and let the games begin!

Purple Nurples and other addictions :D

Sorry for all the transmog posts lately….I blame JD 🙂  Yes yes!!

Tonight, I transmogged another olympic outfit…the Javelin, but whilst trolling around transmog sites and gear, I found the set I wanted for my warrior….the Revenant set!  All purple and  I chased down some quests which rewarded the items and I have to farm two bosses for my shoulders (Omor in Hellfire ramparts – who didn’t give it up tonight) and Kael in MgT – who I have to kill but can’t be bothered doing right now!  Thanks to McT for all the help he gave me and fantastic mogging talk 🙂

Of course my only issue is a mace now..all the ones I like are from heroic ICC or FL…so I have to lower my preferences 🙂  heheh  But i am calling him the purple nurple!!!

Onto other things, I took my Druid into LFR to heal…and I sucked…I really just don’t get druid healing…although I have only done it a couple of times so perhaps I am being too harsh on myself.  I may just give up on the healing.

My rogue is now level 20 and has riding skills 🙂  This makes me happy as running around it just killing my will to live.  I am not sure how far she will go, but anything is possible.

Hubby got his druid to 84 this morning, and we are currently on our pally/shammy combo trying to get them to 85 as they are fully rested now.  Funny tangent, we had them in a guild which no one ever spoke in – over 400 members and I think I had seen people speak in guild chat once…when I joined about 6 months ago.  So we left that guild today because we just got sick of the silence even when trying to get a conversation started.  About 1.5 minutes after leaving the guild, we get a guild invite to the same guild!!! A generic whisper saying our guild is looking for members, join us type thing, so we both messaged back something much less polite than “we just left your crap guild”.  I did giggle.

We are considering moving the 2 of them over to Dath to be with the frosties…not that we have discussed raiding at all, however hubby did mention that 2 raiding resto druids may not work so he needs another toon option (resto druid because I waffle about Navimie too much I think)….I find this interesting for 2 reasons :

1 – I may be able to convince him to raid if the team is not as unco as he currently experiences.

2 – I have not mentioned raiding at all except that they progressed well and seem to be quite competant.

I felt a little twinge of excitement when he said that because it gave me some hope. I may be able to raid with him horde side again…somewhere!! I had a happy!

My mage is feeling very unloved at the moment, and I do feel bad for her. I might try and do an olympic transmog for her now and see if I can’t give her some loving.

Still mogging for the olympics :)

I have had a very productive morning, mogging my toons for the olympics.  I got 4 outfits done today and I have a few ideas about the other ones running in my mind.

I am slightly amazed at how many people are a part of this now, I think we were over the 30 mark last time I checked and that is intense competition if you ask me 🙂

I am hoping for at least one of my toons to get a medal and if I even get more than that I will be ecstatic!!  I am not the best at transmog as I am a pretty quirky kind of person so my outfits are a little non mainstream 🙂  But I am having fun and that is all I care about!!  Not everyone is going to get something though – just because of sheer numbers and I assume they are only giving out gold, silver and bronze…so it is going to be tough tough tough 🙂

Hubby is going out tonight, so I am going to see if I can do anymore, however my brain is pretty mushy at the moment, so I may just level my priest a little bit and not do anymore transmog…I still have 3 weeks to finish  them all off.

I also have to sort through all the screenshots I am taking and see which ones are usable and effective, but I am only using Mogit, so it really isn’t all that hard 🙂

I am going to have a great time trying to delete all these toons I am making as well given they all have mail etc, I have to log into each of them and delete all the mail …time consuming let me tell you!!  LOL

I used my mage for the flag bearer, but I really want to use her for something else as well.  She is my main toon she deserves to be in the spotlight at some point I think!

Anyway, I am off to do the mowing since hubby is still sick and make some lunch 🙂

 

Transmogging and brain killer

Last night we went to DS, our intent was to do some heroic modes, we didn’t have enough people online so we did a normal run.

The alts vs main thing flared up AGAIN!!! I am so fucking sick of the argument and in truth I just wish they would call it quits with raiding until mop.

We had a pug rogue in the raid who was hassling our hunter for winning some vial trinket off yorsahj and I had to boot them because he kept hassling her. He then proceeded to mock us for our bad dps and being so shit…what’s funny is that we aren’t a guild who watches our dps or even really gives a shit about meters etc..The joke was on him really because we were completely uninsulted :).

The issue I have is that I agree with the rogue about the trinket…I am not entirely sure why hunters would use a trinket that procs a physical damage effect….do hunters even do physical damage? Yes I understand the agility is good for hunters, but same for rogues and shammies and more so because they benefit from the proc…can anyone clarify hunters for me?!?!?

I was outnumbered and when I explained about the proc I got told basically it was bis for hunters…sure?

Anyway, aside from that we only killed up to ultraxion after wiping the first time on him.

Transmogrify for the Olympics is killing my brain, I come up with outfits and then decide they aren’t good enough, do start again…I have to stop doing that. The competition has some of the best transmoggers competing though and I really feel I have to produce completely perfect concepts! Hehe I will get there though!
