Mogolympics Begins

As the first week of Mogolympics drew to a close, three of the nine medal results were revealed. But in case you missed out on the Opening Ceremony, take a moment to check it out.

So far we’ve seen a wide range of really great mogs. I really don’t envy the judges or JD for that matter – especially with 40+ competitors to get through.

As a recap, I was representing Ramkahen for this epic event.

The criteria for each medal qualifying round:

  • Cycling – Build a biker outfit to compliment the Chopper. It must be either Leather or Mail
  • Hammer Throw – Build an outfit around your favourite two-handed hammer
  • Discus – Build an outfit around one of the shield skins here

Here are my contributions for the first three events.


Cycling
(Mail)
Head: Mok’Nathal Beast-Mask
Shoulder: Talondeep Spaulders
Chest: Ghostworld Chestguard
Belt: Lifecycle Waistguard
Legs: Legguards of Nature’s Power
Boots: Cleated Ice Boots
Gloves: Gloves of the Passing Night

I don’t quite remember how this transmog started but it soon developed into a more ‘beastly’ mog so I thought it would be cool if my Mogolympian in her human form brought out her inner worgen.

Hammer Throw
Hammer Throw (Paladin Plate)
Head: Crimson Beholder Eye
Shoulders: Burden of Mortality
Chest: Crystalforge Chestguard
Gloves: Gauntlets of Annihilation
Belt: Girdle of the Righteous Path
Legs: Crystalforge Legguards
Boots: Boots of the Protector
Hammer: Hammer of the Naaru

After a recent LBR, Coolidge managed to score the Hammer from Gruul’s Lair so I thought it would be fun to try a mog for it.

Discus
Discus (Paladin Plate)
Head: Helm of the Thousand Needles
Shoulder: Spaulders of the Righteous
Chest: Breastplate of Avenging Flame
Belt: Vicious Gladiator’s Clasp of Cruelty
Legs: Legguards of the Emerald Brood
Boots: Sapphiron’s Scale Boots
Gloves: Diemetradon Plate Gloves
Off-Hand: Glyphed Buckler

Designing this set, there was a definite ‘Tron-like’ feel to this but I wasn’t sure if it was due to the blue tones or the disc itself. Either way this was one of my favourite designs in the competition. Ok, so maybe Tron / Riverdance :P

  1. I remember noticing the wolf helmet in the Cycling and thinking that was a really great touch. Your Hammer and Discus outfits are great, too. :D

  4. I saw your dwarf one! And bike one is certainly eyecatching with the details on the legs, I like it. And your hammer toss is definitely eyecatching – Love that pose!
