Mog the World in 80 days competition!!!

I had a brilliant idea whilst trying to think of things for the shared topics on blog Azeroth, so in summation, we can blame Fimlys and Hydra for what is about to happen here at Azerothian Life.  Inspired by stupidity perhaps, however without further ado –  I have decided to hold a transmogging contest!!

Honestly I think it is a fantastic idea which can celebrate the many different cultures and countries we all spawn from!  With Australia day looming close, I felt it was a great day to get this event started!  You can read about it on this page!

The judges I have managed to wrangle together (no actual wrangling occurred…we were out of jelly and not near any mud :p ) are none other than the brilliant, gorgeous, talented and very likeable trio of Navimie, Cymre and Kamalia!!  Woot Woot!

The event will run over 12 weeks and as it is not starting until the 26th January 2014 you have plenty of time to familiarise yourself with the details, start working on outfits and contact us for any questions you may have.

It will be a tight schedule of an outfit a week, but as most people are transmogging genii, I don’t think you will struggle at all!!  I will be sending out updates and confirmations on twitter, so follow me @dragonray to be kept in the loop.

Please spread the word, we are currently in the process of sourcing prizes so we will keep you up to date. Donations of prizes for winners are also welcome and would be very warmly received!

Sweet weapon and general maintenance

I realised I had not handed in my Wrathion quest after picking up the Chimera of Fear, so I trundled off to do that and discovered things about our leader I think is awfully sexy :p cage match anyone?? But also, he may not be the best person to lead the Alliance…or is he??  I felt he handled the situation with Garrosh well, but I would have preferred to see him slaughter in that lovely cinematic, but I can’t be mad at Thrall for stopping that…I have a soft spot for him.

The creation of a jewel was pretty cool as well, I loved how he added everything to it…such power!!

I am now up to the quest section that requires me to collect Valor points, so I basically will be spending the next few weeks just doing dailies/dungeons to make it happen.  Hubby needed the LFR as well as he didn’t realise he already had all the sigils he needed  So we jumped back there (we are now up to the same section of the quest!) and I was using my golden coins of fortune to roll for loot….I had more than 20 (I had some boxes in my bags that I couldn’t empty) so even though I was not able to receive loot from the usual method, rolling gave me loot.  Cheating??  maybe?

Anyway I scored weapons..every time…one cloak…but weapons and weapons and more weapons; one of them was this hot as hell dragonesque looking sword!!!  Which I stuck my brand new Sha crystal into from Wrathion…I will never get rid of this sword, and in fact I am thinking I may need to design an outfit to suit it…I love it….I had only just decided to get rid of my offhand and use a staff as well….but the second I saw this…I knew the staff was gone and my umbrella was back , until I find a replacement…must look up offhands that I can purchase with points somewhere…

Also discovered in my travels about the Exalted Tillers daily quests for other factions..oh my awesome!!!  I am doing Shado pan and August Celestials daily at the moment including their quests to help me get there faster.  I am still miles off being revered with either of them, but every little bit helps I am sure. If I can get her to revered and pick up the rep token it will make it much easier on my pally to start doing dailies and earning some rep and money.  I will try and log onto her this week and start getting some funds up…I can’t even afford to run LFD at this stage, no repair money, so I might just go DPS,  grab dailies and go crazy, it doesn’t take much to gather some gold that way.

On a side note, I don’t know what happened on my mage, but I have started to improve my DPS on her…on the LFR we were in I was doing in the realm of 120 – 140k consistently, of course not during the periods of crazy moving etc…I dropped to just above 100k, which I still think is ok.  I did some reading and found out 3 very valuable things…I was casting frostbolt occasionally…which is bad bad bad bad…I was also wasting a glyph spot for that and I was not using Alter Time properly. Now that I have corrected those two minor things it seems to be much better.  I am still not sure how it could change it that much…but I am not going to argue with maths and proof :p

I do need to spend some time with my boomy now that I have changed her stats around and see if it improves me or if i still suck at the gameplay aspect 🙂  It really could just be that I can’t play the spec. Of course I would be devastated, but life isn’t always fair is it? hehehe

 

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.

Faction pride Tournament – Go and Vote!

I am not really one for blowing trumpets of my own, so this feels a little weird for me requesting you all to go and vote or me, so I will add a caveat – go and vote for whom ever you think has the best outfit – if that happens to be me…YAY 🙂

Neri Approves – Voting Booth

 

Blame Matty, I would never have done this had I not seen their own voting post!!  But don’t click that link and decide you prefer that outfit….I will crush you!!

Transmogolympics: Discus!

Discus Event – LIVE!

Once again fantastic commentary,  is this the first one with duplicate outfits? Spectacular outfits though 🙂

Gold Winner!!

Check out my transmog page for my outfit 🙂

In truth discus was the one event I re-did about 12 times, in the end I put forward the most appealing.  I could not get this right at all.

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 NURPLE!!

He is complete – for the moment!! 

I still need the helm and a better weapon, however the helm I generally have hidden anyway, so I am not worried about it and my weapon is kind of crud, so I want to get it upgraded before I worry about transmogging it.  However the longer I look at him without a matching weapon the more it is going to annoy the hell out of me, so it may end up done this week anyway 🙂

My shoulders dropped off Omor tonight and I was wrapped, so I am sorry for the posting in the last couple of days, I have been going overboard, but seriously it just rocks my socks and I am so excited I had to share immediately!!

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 🙂

 

Mogging it

I was transmogging gear again with Mog it last night and getting sooooooooo annoyed that my low level characters had bugger all items…I hung around hoping that Navimie would turn up online as I couldn’t figure out the problem and I was gong to beg her to help me.

Turns out, google search was useless in helping me and I couldn’t find what I was after.  The Navimie saved my bacon though…stupid filters 😀 took her about 0.1 of a second to know the issue…got to love that girl.

My flag bearer

I got the Sha’tar tabard as my country.  I decided to use my mage for this as she is relevant to the BC era  😀 and has lovely long legs.

Anyway, I have to let JD know, so you guys are getting this before anyone else!!  This will be the only one I can post up here as all voting is anonymous on the outfits.

Waving her Sha’tar flag proudly!

God awful ugly colours let me tell you, but I am loving the outfit I put together 😀 I hope these pictures are better quality, they looked awesome on my pc, but not sure if they lost quality when i uploaded them, and my work computers are so old, I can’t tell if they are nice or not.

I hope you enjoy!

Mogolympics information

What did I just do!

I just requested to be entered into the

Mogolympics!!

Waiting to find out if I am in and which tabard I am getting.

Sha,tar!! I am IN – it is on girls and boys!

**edited to add**

Maybe one of my professional transmoggers can help me out here, what if you don’t have the item…for example..I don’t have a chopper…so do i just create my set without being near a bike and then the judges will be comparing it with an image? Will that disadvantage me not being near the item in question?

Oh god…this is stressful already and I don’t even know if I am in yet 🙂

Leather and Lace

Mataoka over at WoWSugar has gone ahead and done another competition like the plate one recently thrown into the blogosphere – called Leather and Lace.  This one is more my taste considering I have gone to a lot of effort on my druid and my pally was not transmogged until about 3 days ago. Rules and information are on her website 😀

I wanted my baby to look like a druid with greens and browns and yellows, to be earty yet still sassy.  I did a few lowbie quests for some gear like my weapon which has ever changing flowers on it and I scoured the AH and professions of people to find gear I liked and matched my overal look.

I love my druid – almost as much as my mage – almost…follow me to see her Outfit to be Azeroth’s Next Top Leather Wearer!!
