WoW Insider's Weekly Webcomic: Safe Passage -- Convergence {WoW}

Jan 18th 2012 6:09PM You mean going Mankrik on those quillboars.

Know Your Lore: Top 10 lore developments of 2011, part 1 {WoW}

Jan 2nd 2012 1:49AM I agree. The Lich King's influence was prevalent throughout most of the WoTLK zones. In Borean Tundra, we saw that the Scourge was making good headway there and that the Horde/Alliance fortresses there were being battered badly by Nerubians, and in the Howling Fjord we saw the Lich King himself promise King Ymiron the chance to avenge his Queen (after the players kill her). And in Zul'drak... the background music and the quests really gave that feeling of frenzied desperation to the Drakkari trolls there, who were so desperate to repel the Scourge that they were willing to cannibalize their own gods to do so. Icecrown itself was all about how you were barely, but firmly marching towards Icecrown Citadel and preparing yourself to deliver muchly-deserved justice to the BBEG himself.

Even if you didn't follow the Lich King's storyline from WC3, classic WoW and WoTLK made you care about the outcome of the storyline. From level 68-70, you were growing as a particularly renowned soldier into an instrument of the Light's vengeance!

But for Cataclysm... the whole impression of Deathwing I got was:


The player behind the mysterious Mailbox Mage {WoW}

WoW Moviewatch: Dungeon Dan Makes Dungeons Fun Again {WoW}

Dec 14th 2011 8:31PM Myndflame comes back with a hilarious piece. Good show!

I just lost it at Random Raid Randy though. Him and his hilariously fake Ahnold accent.


Shifting Perspectives: Symbiosis speculation {WoW}

Nov 27th 2011 9:06PM Unsolvable balance issues with symbiosis? No problem!

Warrior: You get Charge, he gets Feral Charge!

Warlock: You get Unending Breath, he gets Cat Form (but no feral abilities and casting spells still breaks cat form).

Priest: You get Levitate, he gets Mark of The Wild.

Rogue: You get Garrote (requires energy, can't use in feral form), he gets Starfall (still requires mana).

Paladin: You get Holy Shield, he gets Pounce (still requires energy).

Hunter: You get Aspect of the Cheetah, he gets Moonkin form.

Shaman: You get Magma Totem, he gets Wrath.

Death Knight: You get Pestilence, he gets Cure Disease (still requires mana).

Mage: You get Portal: Stonard, he gets Teleport: Moonglade.

See? Nothing to worry about.


Roleplaying plot points for the death knights of the Ebon Blade {WoW}

Nov 19th 2011 4:12PM "No, though their new addiction, the one all Ebon Blade death knights possess, is arguably worse: the need to inflict pain. If death knights do not regularly inflict agony upon another creature, they begin to suffer wracking pains that could drive them into a mindless, blood-seeking hysteria -- a far worse fate than that of those who suffer from arcane withdrawal."

Well that's not so bad. All DKs wanting to integrate into regular society would need to do is just hang out in Orgrimmar/Stormwind and troll trade chat every day. And if that doesn't work, maybe they could take up a profession like alchemy/inscription and repeatedly undercut potential sellers on the AH by 1c. If these DKs get called out on it, they can just say "Hey man, I'm a recovering addict! I need to do this!"

DKs: The Ultimate Bureaucrats.

Two Bosses Enter: Vanessa VanCleef vs. Zanzil {WoW}

Oct 17th 2011 10:07PM 16-year old jailbait anime-style antagonist beats out ancient Voodoo master of poisons and other sinister spirits.

News at 11.

For our next story:

Dammit, guys.

Two Bosses Enter: Vanessa VanCleef vs. Zanzil {WoW}

Oct 17th 2011 9:33PM If Vanessa uses her poison on Zanzil, two things could happen:

1.) Zanzil's pupils shrink to pinpoints. Then expand to cover his entire eyes. He gains INSANE FOCUS. Then wakes up 3 months later on top of Icecrown Citadel curled up around a tarnished scrap of metal that reads "A__na Gra_d Cha_pion"

2.) Zanzil undergoes some bad voodoo juju nightmares. He wakes up in Razor Hill.

WoW Insider's Weekly Webcomic: Safe Passage -- The Prologue {WoW}

Oct 12th 2011 4:01PM I thought it was the Deepraum tram too.

But upon closer inspection, it appears to be a skyline of some random city with skyscrapers and the moon in the background.

Immersion broken, WORST COMIC EVER!

(Just kidding).
