Oct 13th 2007 12:44PM I've been wary of this comic since I first heard about it and seeing the first few pages of it just kind of shows me that I wasn't entirely wrong. I was afraid this comic might show Orcs and the Horde as a bunch of evil barbaric savages and it's looking that way.
I hope I'm wrong and this is a great comic, but I'm definatly not buying it.

But I'm more interested in Zul'jin. He looks so old and not nearly as threatening as he was in the Second War. I wonder when he lost his arm? Curious.. very curious indeed. Hope we get some lore for that period between then and now.
Oct 11th 2007 3:07PM @4 Horde players and the Horde itself in lore are two entirely different things, as I'm sure you knew based on the way you stated that. Yes there are plenty of Horde who would love to see the Alliance fall, and vice-versa. Hatred from the First and Second War and the interment camps can stay awhile. But my point is Shamans are the spiritual backbone of the Horde. This would be like an member of the Order of the Silver Hand enslaving an Orc.
Nothing could keep a shaman from feeling that way, but they are trained in such a way that they are to have respect for all living things - humans included. As for Ner'zhul, I don't recall him having a natural hatred for the Draenei or any other race. He was manipulated by Kil'jaeden into thinking they were a threat to his own race, and was too weak to stop it later. Afterwards he was a shaman in name only, the Lich King is an entirely different entity also.
Back to my point, from what I've seen of Shamanism in the books and in-game, it's very out of character for a Shaman to take anyone enslaved. As for protection, it said in the preview the Orc enslaves the human and forces him into gladiatorial combat.
Oct 11th 2007 12:58PM The comic to me personally sounds like shit. I can understand Thrall being enslaved by a power-hungry military figure during/after the Second War, but in the current Horde a human being enslaved.. by an Orc SHAMAN? Wtf? That in itself makes no sense.
Despite my doubts about the comics, I also believe the character in it is the lost king of Stormwind. They hinted at it in the Comicon interview.
Oct 11th 2007 10:59AM I use game cards simply for the fact I don't have my own credit card at the moment, and I don't like using others' cards to pay for my game.
Oct 9th 2007 10:42PM I'm full Horde. I pretty much hate the Alliance. This is probably because when I started playing the game I rolled on a PVP server and never went off. Even before WoW I was more of a fan of the Horde than the Alliance. I think servers-types have a lot to do with how someone feels after playing.
Oct 7th 2007 7:21PM The concepts look good and the team sounds interesting but as they say, the proof is in the pudding. We'll see when it comes out and we have something more solid to look at.
Oct 5th 2007 12:56PM Rick roll'd, you got Kel'thuzOWNED!
I think that one line made the entire play for me. Thanks for the re-upload with better sound.
Oct 3rd 2007 9:48AM Getting the Brewfest regalia and boots to go along with the brown brewfest hat I got last night. Should be entertaining wearing that with the Blood Elf warlock.
I'd like to get the Ram too but I doubt I'll get all the points in time.
Sep 25th 2007 1:46PM The one of the big pulls for me when I first started thinking on what my main would be was downtime. I chose a Warlock as my lock simply because I would be doing more at one single moment than say, a warrior. Instead of watching my rage bar and CDs I'm keeping track of health, mana, my minion's health and mana, the dots I have going, etc.
With a lock and hunter each since you're playing both your own character and a pet/minion you have more to do, and I like being busy when playing a game.
