Sunday Morning Funnies: A fish in my dreams

Guilded Age
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: A secret identity is revealed. A good friend is rewarded with betrayal. Well-prepared explorers head into space. Plus: If you've been sleeping in, I bet your favorite authority figure totally knows about it.

If you missed the column last week, you might be surprised to find a new addition to our fold, Best in Slot. As there were 14 available comics last week, I've included the newest, #15, today. But there's also a new "extra" feature (and it's really cute).

Speaking of extras, From Draenor With Love has posted a thoroughly amusing, genuine script for a comic they never did create. I've included it in this week's list; it gives great insight into some of the creative processes that go into that comic. Plus, apparently, chapter 3 will be posted next week!

If you haven't been reading Experience Boost (for some reason?), but have noticed the admirers in the comments section and wondered where to start (besides the beginning), Roster Opening is a great place to join that will bring you through the current storyline.

Finally, Gratz posted its questions and answers feature, available below, which addresses Lackinganame's favorite parts of the comic ever created, as well as some future potential plot developments.

Wowcraft episode 4: Training Dummy

The latest episode of CarBot Animations' wonderful series, Wowcraft, is now available. In its fourth installment, we depart from our orc friend and his adventures in Durotar to focus on his purple, long-eared enemies up north. Yes, I'm talking about the night elves, and episode four is all about a struggling night elf hunter who is clearly attacking a training dummy that's a few levels (or fifty) above his own, to disastrous consequences.

I'm really enjoying these little shorts from CarBot. They're a loving, light-hearted bit of fun at WoW's expense, and I particularly like the mount gag at the end. Where does my druid keep those 150 giant beasts (plus enormous kite--seriously, that thing is huge) that she can call on to cart her around the world? And, more importantly, why does she bother, when she can turn into a bird? The world may never know.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Cow pie

WoW, eh?
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: In the mood for veal. An alphabet review lesson. Where chocolate comes from, revealed. Plus: Someone gets demoted!

At the top of the list this week, you'll notice a new comic, Best in Slot. I've linked to the archives, and next week, will start listing the most recent comics. Best in Slot is about a death knight named Will who seeks to reclaim his soul. In the process, he not only loses something precious, he unleashes something very powerful, and very vengeful.

If you enjoyed last week's editions of Gnomeregan Forever, in which Tridyna 2.0, gnome of the future, made an appearance, you should check out Rug's comment, as well as Trig's (Tridyna's) gnome model suggestions (with links to Photoshopped models).

While perusing the list today, you might notice that Gratz will be doing a special Q&A this week. If you have any questions you'd like to see answered, you should submit them ASAP, because the answers go live tomorrow!

Finally, as a quick reminder, From Draenor With Love is on a brief hiatus between chapters 2 and 3.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Rez or what?

Contested Territory
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: No crime goes unpunished. We've all got nervous habits. It's time to catch a sha. Plus: A new character is introduced!

In comic news, From Draenor With Love closed Chapter 2 last week, and will be taking a short hiatus before releasing Chapter 3. However, Contested Territory is back from its hiatus, with two new comics to enjoy!

Gnomeregan Forever is showcasing the new gnome models that will be coming in Warlords of Draenor, by showing you how future Dyna will look, and highlighting some of the improvements happening with it.

Finally, we have a Massive Pwnage comic on the list this week. Both Gratz and Guilded Age have released extra updates. And, both Experience Boost and Sara & Kleeyo are back!

WowCraft episode 3: Profession Obsession

Carbot Animations, the creator of the StarCrafts series of cartoons, as well as the Heroes of the Storm trailers, has released the latest episode of his World of Warcraft series, WowCraft. After the first episode dealing with character creation, and the second one handling the joke about toothless dogs that's almost as old as the game itself, this one is diving into professions, and the perils of gathering herbs around higher level characters.

While the episode doesn't detail the corpse camping and judicious use of the /sit command that would likely have taken place in reality, the juxtaposition of the angry orc and warlock and their delightful baskets of pretty flowers is entertaining, and the Imp really steals the show for me! I liked the episode, and am hoping the series will develop into something really fun, just like Starcrafts.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Better than gold

WoW, eh?
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Sailor Moon (sort of)! Linola tries out a new companion. Tax season is afoot. Plus, there's a lucky worgen.

The comic news this week is light, as is typical of a week leading up to a holiday, let alone a week that included tax deadlines. There are a few notable absences, including Experience Boost and The Trolling of Azeroth. Contested Territory is scheduled to return to this list next week, however.

In the meantime, Gratz has posted an Easter comic. WoW, eh? is back with a new, not depressing, even kind of sparkly update! It's nice to see Cadi happy again. And although our list is a bit short this week, Trigonometry came through with two installments of the Trigonometry interview (on Gnomeregan Forever).

As always, we are accepting suggestions for inclusions on this list, as well as tips relating to WoW comics. If you have a tip, drop it into the comments section.

And of course, enjoy your holidays!

Sunday Morning Funnies: Fuzzy again

Dark Legacy Comics
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: A pattern of revenge is brought to light. A bribe is offered. Some bad advice is dished out. A newfound appreciation for game content is earned. Finally, the hunt for the sorcerer continues (because, fuzzy!).

In comic news from the past week, the Looking for Group site has been redesigned. Plus, the kraken is still around! And he has a name (Scooter).

The creator of Chat Channeling has answered a questionnaire (as part of a blogging game), so if you're interested in getting to know Witty Warlock, you should check it out.

The interview with Trigonometry continues this week. You know, our favorite undead gnome? Who may be our only undead gnome, but that hardly accounts for the love. (I, personally, think it's the cheeks. Anyone?) (Rug is also apparently trying to recruit me to prank Trig more often. I, for one, would be smart enough not to deny Rug something she wants!)

In sadder news, Gnomeregan Forever features a comic to commemorate the life of a recently departed in-game friend, Xiaolong. I am sure that even though many of us have not suffered a loss in quite this manner, we all know what it is to make real friends in this game, who are there for us when we are sick or down or out, as well as when we really need a new piece of gear or a partner to take on the world (of Azeroth). Our condolences.

As a reminder, in case you missed us last week, Contested Territory is on an unexpected (but brief) hiatus. It will return April 18, and show up here again on April 27.

Wowcraft episode 2

Not too long ago, CarBot animations released the first episode of their WoW-themed shorts, Wowcraft. CarBot's an old hand at adorable tongue-in-cheek takes on Blizzard games, having done a parody trailer for Reaper of Souls, Heroes of the Storm, and a whole series on StarCraft. The videos are sweet and often hilarious, deftly poking fun at experiences I'm sure most of us can relate to. In Wowcraft's second episode, "Quest for Tooth," our (still) nameless hero is assigned the task of collecting teeth from Durotar's strangely cute coyotes. It goes about as well as you'd expect.

I love CarBot's videos, but one thing I particularly admire is the way he juxtaposes the visuals and the sound. A lot of the sound effects in "Quest for Tooth" come straight from WoW itself. Their use and timing along with the original animations provide a good bit of the humor in the video. There's one specific sound-based joke here that absolutely cracked me up, but I won't name it because doing so would spoil it. Take a guess at which one it was in the comments, though!

WoW Moviewatch: Hump Day

It's not often you see a commercial parody in a WoW machinima--well, maybe parody isn't the right word. This Brad Bergman video isn't so much making fun of the commercial as it is recasting it using WoW as footage, instead of the original.

The manipulations around the characters mouths and the clever use of idle animations are what really sell this clip. Unusual as the genre may be, it's worth a shot. Give it a watch if you get a kick out of WoW-ified film audio, and I hope it brings a smile to your face, as it did mine!
Interested in the wide world of machinima? We have new movies every weekday here on WoW Moviewatch! Have suggestions for machinima we ought to feature? Toss us an email at moviewatch@wowinsider.com.

Teh Gladiators
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week in comics: Someone is really lazy (and pays for it). A deal, and a neck, are struck. A kraken plays with his food, and it's adorable. What else? Oh, yeah! The end is nigh!

Also on the list this week, Away From Reality has a comparison of some of Blizzard's plans and attitudes "then" and "now". And if you're a fan of Richard's antics, you won't want to skip this week's Looking for Group, either. Everyone's favorite undead gnome is giving an interview. Finally, there's one leftover April Fools prank on the list. Can you spot it?

In comic news, The Trolling of Azeroth is back, and so is Kibble & Bit! However, Contested Territory is on a brief hiatus due to scheduling conflicts. It is set to resume updating on April 18, which means it will reappear on SMF by April 27.

If you missed us last week, you might want to check out Gnomeregan Forever. There was an April Fools special, featuring a very amusing prank. And me! I made a guest appearance, and got to have some holiday fun. I was a bit vague about it last week because I didn't want to ruin the surprise, but if you skipped it, you should check it out.

Finally, if you're in the market for a gaming PC (or you simply enjoy ogling themed merchandise), there's one available with everyone's favorite cats decorating its side.

Dark Shaman pull from anywhere

My Horde guild recently discovered something interesting about the Dark Shaman encounter, as you can see detailed in the video above. This interesting something is the fact that the Dark Shaman will, in fact, teleport to wherever you pull them from--including the roof of the Orgrimmar auction house. This could be a little challenging in a fight where positioning is actually quite important. Oops!

April Fools: Patch 6.0 notes revealed

In what can only be a completely serious and legitimate forum post, Community Manager Bashiok has shared the first set of patch notes for Warlords of Draenor. As ever with patch notes, we've pulled some of the most notable ones here, and the full list is after the break.
  • Warlock -- All spells and abilities have been significantly revamped. Again. You'll figure it out.
  • Warriors have been nerfed because reasons.
  • Due to recent acquisitions, The Oculus is temporarily inaccessible.
  • Despite concerns over workers' rights violations due to unreasonable weather conditions, Arthas has stated that people should let it go, and that he will indeed remain the final boss of Icecrown Citadel. The cold never bothered him anyway.
  • We give up. Shaman is now spelled "Shawmun."
  • Monk -- The amount healed by Healing Sphere has been increased by 1000%, because RUN OVER THE HEALING SPHERES.

Sunday Morning Funnies: Revisionists

Surviving Azeroth
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: Baking with vanilla is never as boring as it might sound. An assault is launched from a garrison. A negotiation devolves to threats. Finally: Afraid to sleep outside in the dark? No living reason you should be!

Well, folks, it's almost April Fool's Day, and this week, we have an extra special Gnomeregan Forever just for the holiday. It even features a guest appearance!

There's also a special edition of Away From Reality up this week, and I wouldn't miss it if I were you. It's excellent.

Fans of Gigz' Kitchen will want to make sure not to skip DLC this week, as well.

In sadder news, Surviving Azeroth Chapter 1 concludes this week! It will go on hiatus and we will be notified when Chapter 2 is afoot. Plus, Shields and Sheep was discontinued, sadly. Zuulzilla (the artist of both): Enjoy your break!

Finally, although there is no WoW-related NPC this week, I thought I would do a shout-out to Mary's Patreon page, in case anyone has missed it. The perks are great for even $1 monthly donors (sketches and behind-the-scenes content) and, you know, cats that play WoW.

A new Blizzard parody from CarBot Animation

CarBot Animation has done some fun and adorable Blizzard parodies in the past, and today their up to their usual tricks with a new parody of the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls trailer. Diablo isn't generally an IP we see a lot of blatant funny stuff about, considering the source material is easily the darkest of Blizzard's franchises.

This adorable animation hits all the right comedic notes, from Tyrael casually eating a sandwich while the Horadrim handle the Black Soulstone to Malthael's owl-like head twist before he sends the guards to their humiliating end. The ending is easily the best bit, but I won't spoil that for you, you'll have to watch it for yourself!

Sunday Morning Funnies: I found it

Experience Boost
Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, in comics: A kitty is trapped and only Narya can, uh, save Whiskers? Cadi is drowning the world's sorrows. A dwarf bursts into song, though maybe not the song you'd expect. A brother is slain. A moat makes someone very happy.

Last week, Gratz uncharacteristically only posted two comics, when typically there are three. Obviously, this could not stand. To make up for it, we have four this week, plus a new drawing in the Extras section. (It is worth noting that few comics on our list typically post more than once or twice a week, so three most weeks is excellent, and four is a nice treat!)

Surviving Azeroth was missing last week, but is back this week with a new comic. Next week, Chapter One is scheduled to conclude, at which point, the comic will go on hiatus. We will all have to wait for Chapter Two, it seems!

Rug popped into the comments section last week to hint at a "certain calendar idea." Why do I feel like the theme might be something along the lines of "sexy ripped male dwarves with beards that waft wonderfully in the various breezes of 2014"?

Here are this week's WoW-related comics:
