The second week of the Mogolympics featured the Discus throw, Wrestling, Archery, and the Javelin toss.
Discus — Build an outfit around one of these relatively small, circular shields.
I chose just about the plainest shield of the whole assortment, so my outfit had to be relatively plain, too. I chose a sleeveless breastplate to accentuate my model’s buff throwing arms. The toss off the back of the hand is a very advanced technique.
Helm of the Siltwater Slayer, Wyrmhunter Spaulders, Warbringer’s Chestguard, Studded Girdle of Virtue, Chitinous Plate Legguards, Reiver Claws, Warbringer’s Sabatons, Northern Shortsword, Ceremonial Buckler
Another impressive field in this event!
Wrestling — We’re going to deviate from olympic wrestling and go to the sports entertainment aspect instead. Using one of the “championship”/oversized belt styles first introduced with T9, design your own Azerothian pro wrestler.
Abandoned as an infant, raised by murlocs, now he’s the fearsome MURLORC!
Arion’s Crown (Normal), Spaulders of the Scarred Lady (Normal), Brackwater Vest, Coil of Ten-Thousand Screams (Normal), Brackwater Leggings, Unyielding Fists, Unyielding Footwraps, Reclaimed Thunderstrike
What a fight! What a fight! You gotta see this mob to believe it!
Archery — Build an outfit around your favorite bow.
Okay, so, for this event I actually built the outfit first and chose the weapon last. I suppose the outfit is just a little too fancy to make my inspiration immediately obvious — she’s a Brave lass.
Pauldrons of the Promise, Hateful Gladiator’s Chain Armor, Veteran’s Linked Girdle, Kilt of Spiritual Reconstruction, Bountiful Gauntlets, Brunnhildar Snowkickers, Formal White Shirt, Stout Oak Longbow
I used a simple bow for my outfit a) because it matched my inspiration and b) because I like that bow model a lot anyway. I was also happy, though, to see my favorite more complex bows represented, with correspondingly elaborate outfits.
Javelin — Build an outfit around the polearm of your choice.
My current favorite polearm is this beauty from the Lost City of the Tol’vir, so I tried to make an outfit that would fit right in at Ramkahen.
Phantasmal Headdress, Passive Resistor Spaulders (Heroic), Peerless Armor, Peerless Belt, Rugged Leather Pants, Inscribed Leather Gloves + Manacles of the Sleeping Beast (Heroic), Gold-Leaf Wildboots, Seliza’s Spear
This was a very tight competition at the top, with 16 competitors landing their throws within ten feet of each other!
