Nope. That's just a similar pose, not a line-for-line swipe.
Sep 3rd 2008 3:35PM I'm a comic book artist at one of the big two, and that sir, is the very definition of a SWIPE. If there's no homage credit (ie. "After Mike Turner"), then it's not original work. Mike did all the heavy lifting on this piece and then this dude just rolls in, slaps a lazy remix over it, and prays no one notices that his greatest talent is turning on a lightbox.
I think Mike would have had a good-natured chuckle over this, so in this particular fan-art context, it's really not that big of a deal. Just don't give kudos to someone for hard work that wasn't earned. Artists and companies lose money over stuff like this.
Jan 11th 2008 2:36PM While I'm not as annoyed at PvE shaman as Censorman is, he's absolutely right on all his points regarding the difficulty of winning 1v1 pvp with enhancement shaman. Simply put, Shaman are missing critical abilities/talents that most other classes commonly use to survive in pvp. Just playing my warlock alt, I'm stunned at how much more that class has to offer than shaman. The discrepancy is a joke.
I'm sticking with my shaman in the vain hope that Blizz upgrades them by the next expansion. Maybe they'll scale better to 80. Fool's hope, I know, but I still enjoy playing this broken class for whatever reason.
And BTW, whenever I BG, I always go after the shaman first. Easiest kill every time.
Jul 20th 2007 3:23PM My 64 shaman was fighting a mob in Zangarmarsh when a 66 ally hunter decided to "honorably" jump me while I was at half health and mana. Being enhancement, I quickly took down the mob and proceeded to windfury the hunter down to a sliver of health just before I died myself. I think he was surprised to barely win because he had no pet and was probably unaware of the burst-damage enchancement shammies can dish out. Cocky and stupid.
So, as he begins to limp away from my corpse at low health, I suddenly reincarnate and blow him away with a single shock.
Must have been a looong corpse run...
