Chest: Robes of the Exalted
Wrists: Runed Spell-Cuffs

Surprise, another blue set! Hah, seems like my mage has a favorite colour.

If you've been following the Transmogolympics, the cut-off for submissions is today! I got all nine of my "medal events" finished a few days early, so now I'm just waiting for the sets to be judged. Once all the judging and awarding has been finished with, I will be posting one outfit a week starting on the first Thursday of September. I made some pretty nice sets for the Mogolympics if I don't say so myself... I'm excited to share them with everyone! Until then check out my flagbearer set and, of course, good luck to all the other contestants!

Chest: Mail of Crimson Coins
Hands: Arrowflick Gauntlets
Waist: Tarren Mill Defender's Cinch
Legs: Leggings of the Bloodless Knight

I've been wanting to use that chest piece for a Sexy Sunday in soooo long! I actually think this looks a little bit nicer on a male model, but alas... Today the cleavage must be exposed!

Rub My Belly!

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Cloth
Restrictions: Alliance only

Shoulder: Mantle of the Tribunal
Chest: Robes of Hoarse Breaths
Hands: Belly Rubbers
Waist: Sash of the Servant
Feet: Mistyreed Boots

Main-hand: Silvery Sylvan Stave

Green sets make me happy. Maybe it's just me, but it feels like there is less (attractive) green gear out there compared to all the other colours. As it is this set is Alliance only, but if you switch the staff to something else like, say, Jaina's Staff, and use the Horde version of the gloves, Petting Gloves, all your orcs and trolls can wear this set too. Hooray!

Enigma

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Cloth
Restrictions: Mage only

Head: Enigma Circlet
Shoulder: Enigma Shoulderpads
Chest: Enigma Robe
Hands: Rockwurm Hide Handwraps
Waist: Belt of Arcane Storms
Feet: Enigma Boots

Main-hand: Starshard Edge
Off-hand: Mystic Tome

For some reason, WMV did something funny to the gloves with this robe, so take a look at the 3D view on Wowhead. It makes me wonder if they used to have a pair of gloves that went with the Enigma set, or maybe it was just never put in the game. Too bad! I like these glitchy gloves a lot better.

Mr. Manly Man

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Leather
Restrictions: None

Head: Eye of Rend
Shoulder: Spaulders of the Monstrosity
Chest: Grizzly Jerkin
Hands: Waterworn Handguards
Waist: Replica Wildheart Belt
Legs: Bladeshadow Leggings
Feet: Titan-Forged Boots of Triumph

Weapons: Blood Weeper / Devotion

That's right, Sexy Sunday is for men too! This set works well for both male and female characters, though I think I like it better on males. Since this set is wearable by both druids and rogues, there is a second option for the weapons if you have a staff equipped.

Transmogolympics!

Transmogolympics logo from Amateur Azerothian
So, I have entered the Transmogolympics. The London 2012 Summer Olympics are starting up at the end of July, so in honor of the event JD from Amateur Azerothian has come up with another contest for us! This sounded like a lot of fun, and me being the transmog-crazed lunatic that I am, entering was a no-brainer. Each contestant is required to come up with ten transmog sets, one for each of the 'events' in the Transmogolympics:
 
    • Flagbearer - Build an outfit for your randomly assigned faction using their tabard. This is for appearance only; Flagbearer sets do not award a medal.
    • 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.

    We are not to show off our sets until after the Transmogolympics are over, but since the flag bearer event does not reward a medal we are allowed to post them on our blogs for everyone to see. My assigned faction was the Aldor, which is great because I really like purple.

    Armor Type: Plate
    Restrictions: None

    Shoulder: Pauldrons of Tempered Will
    Chest: Protectorate Breastplate
    Hands: Gauntlets of the Golden Thorn
    Waist: Girdle of Many Blessings
    Legs: Magistrate's Greaves
    Feet: Pillarfoot Greaves
    Tabard: Aldor Tabard

    Main-hand: Hammer of Grief


    I decided to make purple more of an accent colour because I really did not want my poor, little flag bearer to end up looking like a giant grape. The icon on the tabard is a lovely bronze, so I focused on that instead. I also never noticed that mace until now, but it's pretty awesome. It was the perfect fit!

    Good luck to my fellow Transmogolympians!

    Blood and Flame

    Click here for 3D view!
    Armor Type: Cloth
    Restrictions: Mage only

    Head: Circle of Flame
    Shoulder: Valorous Kirin Tor Shoulderpads
    Chest: The Sanctum's Flowing Vestments
    Hands: Rockwurm Hide Handwraps
    Waist: Gourmand's Sash
    Feet: Regal Boots

    Main-hand: Blood Weeper
    Off-hand: Swamplight Lantern

    WMV did something funny to most of the items in this set, so I have to say that it looks much, much nicer in-game. I would have used something else for the off-hand, but I really had nothing else in my bank that would go. I suppose that is because I only have 2 bank slots left so I don't really have the space for anything else! My poor little mage is finally reaching that point where there simply aren't any new sets to wear because I've already used every combination of all the gear in my collection. Time for some purging! Either that, or get ready for some pretty funky (ie. ugly) transmog sets...

    Happy Canada Day! Woohoo! Today will be a day filled with eating, drinking, singing and general merrymaking. Everyone (in this country, that is) will be wearing red and white today, so why not let your WoW character play along? Hah, I don't expect anyone to actually use this set, but it was fun for me nonetheless.
