Q. Can I win multiple prizes?
A. Yes, participants may win a prize in each of the rounds of competition.
Q. Do I have to attend the whole event to be eligible for a prize?
A. No, players may come and go as they please, and are not required to have won in a previous round to be eligible for later rounds. We recognise that players have other commitments, so we do our best to be flexible.
Q. Can we enter as a guild/partnership?
A. Whilst we love to see groups of themed characters, we sadly have to judge on an individual basis. It’s simply too difficult to judge groups in comparison to individuals.
Q. Are roleplay outfits accepted?
A. We fully encourage participants to show off their roleplay outfits during the course of our events, but unfortunately we cannot judge them on the same basis as other transmogrification sets unless they fulfil all of the criteria set out in the rules above. For example, allowing the mixing of armor types can potentially give a great advantage to plate wearers, who may wear almost any armor pieces to form a roleplay set.
Q. Why do you hate dwarves and love blood elves etc?
A. The reason that certain races are over-represented among winners is quite simply because the relative population of that race is higher. We’ve attended Horde events where 50 out of 100 are Blood Elves and 2 are Goblins, of course there will be more Elves winning in such circumstances.
Q. You always talk about ‘Recipe’ sets. What does that mean, exactly?
A. We use the term ‘recipe’ to refer to any outfit which was designed by Blizzard with the intention of those items matching one another. For example, tier sets, pvp sets and uncommon BoE sets such as the Commander’s Set.
Some other tips that might be of interest:
- Be creative; don't just use a complete "recipe" set. You can and should mix/match items from different sets that match in color and style. When using a "recipe" set, it's the accessorizing that makes these sets stand out to the judges (hunter pets, companion pets, weapons; all matching in color/style/theme of course).
- Yes, you can use your Legendary weapons however; make sure that they match your clothing in style and color...these guys don't just award something because "you has a Legendary" (or a Corrupted Ashbringer).
- It's all in the little extra details that count; while many times your bracers do not show, mogging them will show that you care about your look down to the fine details. Belts (especially cloth ones) can be difficult, but keep looking they are out there. Same with cloaks; if your breastplate has detailing on the back, hide the cloak, but make sure it's mogged.
- Hunters have an advantage...bows, polearems, can wear Shaman gear, AND those dam pets...sigh....is there nothing they can't have??? Golden Paladins, Rogues in Druid gear, these are things that work better than you can imagine.
- Gnomes and Dwarves....yes you can look awesome if you try. Gnomes can get away with strange looks (cus they are cute and tiny) that would look ridiculous on a Dranei. Dwarven males have those wonderful beards that can work with their gear.
- Change your character's haircolor and style to fit your transmog..trust me in this. Pull out those companion pets, these all work well along with your set.
- Download the addon Mogit...seriously, this addon is fantastic...play around with it it's quite fun....and guys, you can play "dress up Barbie" with this addon and no one need ever know!
