A Transmog-Party where Everyone’s Well-dressed – Except Us!

WORLD OF WARCRAFT, 9 March — Great multiverse traveler Ironyca Lee has jumped across, this time not worlds but continents, to be a judge at a transmogrification competition at a WoW/USA server. Given the vagaries of customs & immigration she was forced to attend this haute couture event (OMG how embarrassing) in Level 1 attire! Still, ever the keen multiverse eye, she provides insights into a remarkable Virtual Culture Ritual (“VCR” *giggles*) that I must flummoxedly admit, I was unaware even existed. For detailed ethnographic analysis and spectacular imagery of this unique cultural event, as well as info on upcoming Transmogrification Contests, read the full post on her blog.

Traveling the Multiverse

This friday I was invited along with Noelani to judge a transmogrification competition by Keelhaul (author of Disenchanting Azeroth aka The Mogfather) on US-Tichondrius.

Originally this is an idea Keelhaul has conceptualized, funded and hosted on his own across US servers.

He has given away 1.695.000 gold in total and has been featured on PC Gamer and WoW Insider among others. A skilled auction house seller who specialize in selling gear for mogging, he’s using the gold to ramp up a party where everyone’s well-dressed – except us!

Because these events are taking place on US servers, we’ve had to make US trial accounts and cheat the game to load US servers, which of course meant we attended on measly lvl 1’s. Much to our dismay, we couldn’t talk to anyone except in whispers which had been instigated by someone else first. Emoting was our best communicative tool.

Another downside…
