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.

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!
