Well for some reason my first comment didn't post, so let's try that again.The creator should be applauded for his effective use of sound, and often overlooked area when it comes to machinima these days, (though I do wish we could get some music that wasn't by the Immediate group). Nicely layered, good, thick and properly used to build tension and anticipation. Although I was confused by the fact that the whispering was clearly done by somebody who had a poor quality mic, with very noticeable hiss and interference. Kind of unfortunate when you stack it up against the more professional sounding voice-over. Regardless, the audio production is solid and that is a very good thing, more of this please.Unfortunately the visuals didn't live up to that. Poor quality, even for Youtube, and a particularly unprofessional looking typeset. When creating a trailer, it's best to use a font and color that have impact, rather than look like they were randomly picked in Moviemaker. Not only that, but one of the climax words is mis-spelled, 'reckoning', indicating the creator didn't check his work before releasing it. More haste, less speed when it comes to production please. You're not on a deadline, get it right first before releasing it, you'll get better feedback that way.One last thing, do buy a proper copy of FRAPs. The watermark is hideous. Applause for the effective use of sound, not enough visuals and the visuals that were there were poor quality and didn't live up to the standards of the audio production. Keep at it, there's a lot of potential here.

And now it posted. Refreshing a WoW Insider page is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get.

Since the audio was not created by the machinimator, I take back what I just said. This video is plagiarized garbage and shouldn't even be up here.
