  • Who: Missescake, Cymre, Reluctant Raider, Kamalia, Tolbi.
  • How: Send an e-mail with your screenshot(s) to arcanewordsmith@gmail.com or post your entry on the Mog Madness page of Amateur Azerothian, Tome of the Ancients, or Effraeti’s RP.
  • Mog Requirement: For the finals, contestants must create an “Anti-Paladin of the Old God.”  To elaborate, your outfit can include anything for a Paladin or Death Knight.  You must also choose whether your entry is an Anti-Paladin for C’thun or for Yogg-Saron (Judge’s tip…avoid looking anything like Twilight Cultists).

Best of luck to our 5 finalists…and yes, in this EXACT moment I realized the irony in the final round and the title of the contest…

            I believe Achmed the Dead Terrorist said it best:

            “I KEEEEEL YOU!!!!”

    Oh, boy, this one’s going to be a doozy for sure. I’m not even sure quite where to start yet. Oh, wait, I DO know what I’m going to start with — though the particular piece I have in mind may not make it into my final submission, after I’m through iterating in MogIt. 😛

    BTW, there is AT LEAST one more Old God, N’Zoth, the Drowned God. Speculation is of N’zoth sleeping near the underwater Naga city, possibly named Ny’alotha.

    It is also speculated there are five Old Gods… two of which have yet to be named or alluded to.

      I am one with said knowledge as well. Thought we’d keep it to the ones that have “surfaced” in Azeroth.

  4. Cymre April 16, 2012 / 10:28 am

    Ooh there’s a first prize?
    I’m not sure where I’m going either although I do have a couple of pieces in mind I intend on using… I coud go either way really.

    • JD Kenada April 16, 2012 / 11:31 am

      *sigh*

      Indeed there is, lol.

  5. Tolbi April 17, 2012 / 1:09 am

    Now this! This is a theme, a genius idea, a marvelous magnificent maddening theme! Time to begin!

    P.S. Why no warriors?

    • Tolbi April 17, 2012 / 1:09 am

      P.P.S. There’s a prize?

      • JD Kenada April 17, 2012 / 6:40 am

        Yes. That is all. 😉

    • JD Kenada April 17, 2012 / 6:40 am

      Simply due to the basic principle of the Anti-Paladin. I know, I know…no Warriors here, Warriors losing “stance dance.” It’s a rough week for the class.

      Seriously, though, I figured the Paladin component was straight forward and then added the DK as they fit the idea somewhat as well. I just didn’t feel Warriors fit the archetype. Otherwise I’m glad you approve.

    Can you enter even if you haven’t been in any of the previous rounds?

    • JD Kenada April 17, 2012 / 6:42 am

      You can share an outfit based on the round’s guildelines. However the full contest was an elimination process. These are the final five from our original twenty six.

      You can share an “if I had been entered” outfit. I’ve referred to it previously as Mog Madness: The Home Game. Fully encouraged!

      • khizzara April 18, 2012 / 11:47 am

        The elimination idea worked well I think. It certainly gave the contest it’s own flavour. However, I know that I had a few friends who were all, “A transmog contest? Oooh! Can I enter?” And I had to disappoint them and explain that they couldn’t participate unless they’d been in the first round. 😦

        One option might be to have individual rounds open to anyone, and then a final round that pits the previous winners against each other with a poll for fan voting.

        • JD Kenada April 18, 2012 / 12:09 pm

          That’s an option down the road as well.

          As for your friends, make sure they keep their eyes peeled. The first time around was done with little notice and I think it’s only because of WoW Insider that we got noticed early on. THEN, word of mouth got people following. I’m making sure people are checking in here often now because I finally tipped off the current co-judges to the basis and I think even they’re already excited!

          • khizzara April 18, 2012 / 12:12 pm

            WoW Insider is definitely how I heard of it!

  7. Navimie April 17, 2012 / 3:14 am

    Oooh I can’t wait to see who wins! This is so exciting!

    And I did chuckle at your last line there JD 🙂

    • JD Kenada April 17, 2012 / 6:42 am

      It’s true. I came up with the Anti-Paladin of the Old God, but it wasn’t until I posted the final round rules that I realized the Madness link. Pure coincidence.

  8. Bttf (Deb) aka Lunanox April 17, 2012 / 6:12 pm

    Well, I know I was eliminated last round…but I just wanted to make an outfit based on this idea. What can I say…it’s an addiction! 😛 I did it based off C’Thun and his color scheme in him and his environment…looking suitabley evil of course!


    Ruthless Gladiator’s Dreadplate Helm
    War Master’s Pauldrons
    Saltstone Surcoat
    Master Builder’s Shirt
    Saltstone Gauntlets
    Acherus Knight’s Girdle
    Ruthless Gladiator’s Dreadplate Legguards
    Ruthless Gladiator’s Warboots of Cruelty
    Hellslyayer Battle Axe

    Good luk to all the actual contestants!

    • JD Kenada April 17, 2012 / 7:01 pm

      Not going to lie…that’s scary as @#$%

      :O

      • Bttf (Deb) aka Lunanox April 17, 2012 / 8:51 pm

        Aww, shucks! 😛
        Good luck judging!

    • kamaliaetalia April 17, 2012 / 9:27 pm

      That’s very, very frightening. Well-done!
