The third and final week of the Mogolympics featured Fencing, the Freestyle competition, the Equestrian event, and Closing Ceremonies.
Fencing — Time for some swordplay. Build your best outfit around the 1H Sword of your choice.
I wanted to avoid the easy, obvious Dread Pirate Roberts reference and go for a more real-world sport look, but I couldn’t make a white or near-white set that I really liked, so it ended up being black anyway.
Helm of the Vast Legions, Puncture-Binding Spaulder, Cadaverous Armor, Dusky Belt, Dark Leather Pants, Cadaverous Gloves, Rapscallion Boots, Dazzling Mithril Rapier
Although I wasn’t able to make a real-world mimic outfit that truly satisfied me from leather, the gold medalist in this event made a perfect outfit from cloth. And I guess my effort wasn’t so far off-the-mark, after all, because out of yet another outstanding array of competitors, I won the bronze!
Freestyle — Build your own NPC.
There are so many beautiful animals to tame in Stranglethorn that Nesingwary’s Expedition really ought to have its own Stable Master. You’d think a camp full of Hunters would have one, so it always vexes me terribly that they don’t!
Stylin’ Jungle Hat, Cloaked Shoulderpads, Righteous Armor, Sash of Musing, Righteous Leggings, Morra’s Gloves + Quelling Bracers, Rocket Boots Xtreme
This event produced so many intriguing characters whom I’d love to meet! I just wish I knew what all of them do….
Equestrian — Build an outfit to complement one of the horse mounts in the game. The mount chosen must be available in-game to the race modelling the outfit.
With this brighly coloured jacket, this ensemble is appropriate for the Cross-Country or Showjumping events, but not for Dressage; a true Dressage outfit would also require a Transmogrifiable Top Hat; there was no really good riding hat, so I went for the Napoleon Crossing the Alps look.
Admiral’s Hat, Oracle Mantle, Sorcerer Drape, Mystic’s Belt, Astralaan Pants, Oracle Gloves + Sorcerer Bracelets, Saltarello Shoes, Tuxedo Shirt
I was really looking forward to this event, and the competitors did not disappoint! I wondered if there would be any outfits similar to mine, and I was very much delighted and amused when my entry and a strikingly similar riding costume shared the gold.
Don’t forget to check out the Closing Ceremonies for the Judges’ Choice awards, the overall outstanding performance awards, and a special surprise!
