Survivor Round Two — Mortal Who?

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , , , on January 15, 2013 by tomeoftheancient

kabalSo I really didn’t think I’d survive the first round as my history with Mr. RNG is not very good so I wasn’t prepared when I made it to round two of Amateur Azerothian’s Amazing Transmog Survivor Contest. I know nothing about Mortal Kombat but JD supplied a link to characters so I just thought I’d go for it.

I decided on Kabal pictured above who’s wearing a respirator. All righty then. A little research later, the only transmoggable somewhat respiratorish helm is mail, Boundless Gaze. Here’s my effort at Kabal.

mykabalI was not very happy with him, I think leather may have been a better fit for him but alas, no leather respirators, so back to the drawing board.

After looking through Mortal Kombat characters I found Kira. Now that girl has attitude, I like that.

kiraI thought about all the races of Azeroth and one always comes to mind when I think attitude, Goblins. They got it. They flaunt it. They are all about attitude to me. So the entry I sent JD is Kira portrayed by a Goblin.

Primal Batskin Jerkin

Marauding Belt

Wolf Rider’s Leggings

Shadefiend Boots

Dire Wolf Handler Gloves

Silvermoon Royal Cloak

Razor Blade

Survivor Round One — Chibi Style

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , , on January 10, 2013 by tomeoftheancient

catchibiThis is great! Something other than pet battling caught Cat’s fancy! Thanks to all the bloggers who brought Chibi Maker to her attention. Here’s her entry in Amateur Azerothian’s Survivor Contest! Yay! I think it’s healthy for her to do something different for a change don’t you? What? Oh, okay. Be that way.

Here’s her actual entry. Oh no. She did take time out to transmog, but look what she says! OMG! The outfit’s all about pet battling! Sheesh, there’s no hope for that Druid.

I am a Disciple of Har’koa, that Har’koa is still one very large dangerous Beast. So if anything were to go wrong and Har’koa decided to go all medieval on my ass butt Beasts have very weak defense against Flying, so I figured better to be safe than sorry just in case Har’koa decides what’s one less disciple give or take.

Cat’s Ensemble:
Helm of the Blind Seer
Passive Resistor Spaulders
Tunic of the Nightwatcher
Hydrolance Gloves
Tomb Raider’s Girdle
Vengeful Gladiator’s Dragonhide Legguards
Boots of Fungoid Growth
Greatstaff of the Nexus

I give up. Cat’s dressed herself up as Big Bird. She managed to make a transmog outfit all about pet battles. Sigh … what can I do. I’m not even going to fight it anymore. Good luck all you Disciples! I wonder if JD had a sleepless night!

Take Me to Your Leader or Survivor!

worgennutCat’s been sitting outside the Shrine of Seven Stars playing  with MogIt. She wants to enter Amateur Azerothian’s Amazing Transmog Survivor Contest. This is one of her rejected outfits. If I know Cat she won’t be happy until she comes up with an outfit she can wear, so poor Worgen got cut.

The first round is to design a Disciple of Har’koa.  Not the funky folk that have her chained, but use her as inspiration for your toon were that it were a follower of said Spirit.

The deadline for the first round is January 8th so there’s still plenty of time! The more scary Disciple’s of Har’koa the better!

We’re Closed

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , , on August 10, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

Yeah, sorry. We’re closed. Apparently I can’t manage scoring the incredible Mogolympics entrants while following my dog around making sure he doesn’t do a houdini and slip out of his paw protectors. And all that stupid other real life stuff. Not a multitasker. I’m doing really crappy on the dog patrol part, by the time I type one sentence he’s out of them. And OMG judging this is terribly hard.

Also have a hard time writing while angry. I seem to develop a temporary case of Tourette syndrome and pepper my posts with SHITS and CRAPS and even worse stuff. REALLY, I know. I wish I could be clever and turn anger into a lyrical response like Matty can, but I can’t. Anger makes me stupid and only distance gives me my words back and I’m not supposed to say anything and others who still have their words have said stuff better than I can. And anyway, I’m just one of the great unwashed so who gives a rat’s ass what I think. Okay sorry, this isn’t going well. Calm down. Where was I? Right. Mogolympics. Get back on track.

So I think I can get the Cycling event done today and to JD, yay! I don’t want to hold anything up. Unfortunately because of the amount of time it takes me to score it’s unlikely I’ll be able to comment individually so I’ll just say the entrants are all amazing making scoring … difficult. I am in awe.

In an effort to prevent me from ranting obscenity I will instead give you a mog related screen shot. I know, big whoop, but to me it is. An impromptu mog contest on my server. It was of course met with derision at first but then it prompted another contest with a 500 gold prize! Oh no, I just let the cat out of the bag! Yes, I have been playing just a little tiny bit. Just to clear my head in between rounds. Not goofing off … really, I swear.

So yeah, that’s why we’re closed. Dog wrangling, judging and trying not to yell effing bad words. EFFING BAD WORD! We might be back next week to normally scheduled programing … or not, hard to say, but what WILL be revealed are the first events of the Mogolympics!!!

And just one last thing. I can’t BELIEVE I’m going to quote my mother here, but really, if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. It’s a rule to live by no matter WHO you think you’re speaking to and whether you’re in real life or here. Mother has spoken, roger and out.

It’s Tyrande, Cymre be Prepared!

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , , on July 9, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

Pssst … over here … but keep your voice down. I don’t really want anyone to hear us. Amateur Azerothian’s Transmogolympics entries are piling up at a frightening speed. So let’s keep this just between us.

Erinys wondered what Olympic Events Tyrande and Malfurion were planning on entering, so I send Ironsally out for one last photo shoot.

Yes, surprising isn’t it? I so did not see Tyrande as a long jump competitor, I would have bet on something like rhythmic gymnastics so yeah, this one took me by surprise. But damn, look at those abs. Not too shabby for a priestess, you go Tyrande. I’d hate to go up against her.

Okay, this really came as no surprise. Weightlifting, yeah, because that guy’s got to be really strong. The first mortal Druid and his teacher was Cenarius, a demigod. See what I’m saying, that Malfurion could probably dead lift Magtheridon if he wanted to.

It’s nice to see some of the leaders of Azeroth getting into the Transmogolympic spirit. I know they’re as anxious to see the competitor’s outfits as I am. Entry is open to July 31st so if you want to share your Olympic outfits sign up at Amateur Azerothian!

Transmogolympics! It’s Over 9000!

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , , on July 7, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

Well yeah, as I’ve said in the past … hyperbole … kind of my middle name. BUT STILL! Entries in Amateur Azerothian’s Transmogolympics have soared to over 50, thanks to WoW Insider Robin Torres’ post and it’s still early days! OMG! I just checked and it’s gone up to 58 while I was typing!

I’m a little worried though. I’ve been trying to think of an alternate name just in case. Azeromogalympics? Or is “lympics” trademarked too. Geez, pompous much. At least they apologized to knitters. Hey, I’ve been a knitter occasionally. I kinda gave up though as I never seemed to advance past the scarf stage.

You’d think they’d be happy people are so excited by the Olympics, that they honor it by incorporating it into the things they love best. And what they REALLY should be looking into is this. Come on, whoever in the world thought it would be okay for Deathwing to participate had to be smoking some strange stuff. I’m just saying … THAT CHIN … it’s obvious that thing is lethal. So if the Olympic Committee needs something to look into, there you go. Deathwing wrestling. That’s just so wrong.

And then I see that Navi of The Daily Frostwolf and competitor in the Transmogolympics was trying to sneak under the radar. She’s going to be on the Twisted Nether Blogcast this weekend. Let’s all listen so we can find out what she’s doing to get in shape for her upcoming mogolympics events!

Transmogolympics Déjà vu

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , , on July 3, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

Yes, I know. You’re getting the strange feeling that I said all this yesterday. Weird. Yeah, I did. But in the interest of keeping the peace at least during the Transmogolympics, after showing Garrosh looking so stunning in his polo gear yesterday, I thought I should give Varian equal time. Don’t want to end up with a transmogolocalypse on our hands. I was surprised to find out Varian’s specialty was swimming. Look at that concentration. If you look real close he’s even managed to frighten his reflection, looks like it’s screaming. Wow. You go Varian.

Oh and look! Jaina! I caught a glimpse of her with her synchronized swimming team mates! Ah, it’s good to see her out and having some fun for a change. I hope she makes the best of it while she can with all that’s coming her way. Hopefully sooner rather than LATER. Sorry Jaina but we’re all going a little nuts waiting around for the other shoe expansion to drop.

So just a reminder, it’s not too late to enter the Mogolympics, all the information you need is right there at Amateur Azerothian, join us!

The Transmogolympics are Here!

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , , on July 2, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

How exciting is that! The first ever Transmogolympics is going to be where everyone in Azeroth will want to be, to see and be seen. I mean do you see that! Garrosh Hellscream will be there representing Orgrimmar, it’s your chance to met the warchief in person and shake his hand … or swing a blow depending.

JD came up with this great event and I can hardly wait to see the entries. Judging by who’s already signed up, there will be some spectacular outfits to see. But it’s not too late to enter, I know there are some great moggers out there, some of them are in my blogroll. Hey, you guys! Sign up!

Here are the medal events:

  • 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.

There’s more, so for everything you need to know, go to Amateur Azerothian’s Mogolympics page!

Superheroes in Azeroth

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , , , on May 5, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

Navi at The Daily Frostwolf had a fun idea to dress up as a Superhero. First thing that came to mind was Catwoman. I was disappointed that there are no bullwhips to be had for weapons, so she selected Bloody Brass Knuckles instead.

I think we’ll all sleep better knowing she’s prowling Stormwind, I caught a glimpse of her leaping from one of the towers this morning. Since she’s a Superhero, she plays fast and loose with rules, and is wearing a mish-mash of different armor, but yeah, who would dare say anything to her about it, I know I’m not going to.


So far Azeroth’s being protected by Navi’s Captain America and Ironman, joined now by Catwoman. I wonder how many others will hear the call!

Note: I know Catwoman doesn’t quality as a Superhero, at best she’s an antihero, at worst, villain. Hopefully Navi will cut me some slack!

Torment a Warlock Time

Posted in Transmogrification with tags , , on April 23, 2012 by tomeoftheancient

I know it’s probably a reaction to seeing all the mog geniuses in action during Mog Madness but when I heard about Saga of Spellbound’s “worst dressed Warlock” competition I knew I wanted to torment the tormentor for a change. Saga says:

So let’s turn it around. Let’s find the worst possible Warlock outfit available in the game. Something that would make other Warlocks shun you and not let you near them. Something that would make your demon take one look at you and return back to the Twisting Nether laughing all the way.

To add insult to injury I made her pose for the screen shots in the lovely garden behind the Cathedral of Light, a place where she wouldn’t normally be caught hanging around.

There she is. Doesn’t she look lovely? All ready to get a little gardening done before she gets in the van and drives the kids to a soccer game. Isn’t she cute. Ouch! Quit it! I was just kidding, geez, so touchy aren’t we now. How does it feel for a change?

I tried to talk my Undead Warlock into this but she wasn’t having any of it. I won’t even go into what I had to promise the Human to get her to do it, it’s icky, I don’t even want to talk about it.

Garden Mom Outfit

I noticed all her minions sneaking off, they did NOT want to be part of the picture. There was nothing I could offer them to get them to stay. Oh, she’s going to have to get up to a lot of evil to live this down!
