Sunday Morning Funnies: Your lack of faith is disturbing

It might be a long weekend, but that's no excuse not to read your funnies! We have some new faces, the return of a beloved comic, a comic/craft hybrid, and more.

New additions
  1. The Emissary - Act 1. This is the beginning of a new project from Barry T. Smith, a departure from his usual style with InkTank and Angst Technology.
  2. Manic Graffiti is back! Let's start with the Pax Arcana Lich King Special.
  3. This isn't new, but it's a debut for this list. Sluggy Freelance's Years of Yarncraft Papercrafts! There are lots. Here's one.
  4. Check out mmolecule, or "GG" Comics by Ken Harrison. WoW players meet up with the Force.
Comedy with a plot
  1. LFG: No, that's not Legara.
  2. Road to BlizzCon, Sin'dorei Scheming Part 2.
  3. Welcome to Booty Bay!
Comedy
  1. Extra Life illustrates the difference between respawning and reincarnation.
  2. GU Comics points out that There's a Good Reason.
  3. It's back to school time and Monkey Punchers celebrates. BTS.
  4. NoObz. There's a flaw in the strategy.

WWI '08 Panel: Gear Resets

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. And if current information holds, you'll be looking like one of his elves when you hit Northrend. Say goodbye to your cool-looking level 70 purple gear and say hello to starting over with greens. It'll be like reliving your junior high photo day -- or worse.

Answering a specific question about the topic of ugly, mismatched armor during the WWI Q&A session today, the developer panel gave a cheeky answer:

We ended up having a little clown action, ok, a lot of clown action in TBC. We aren't going to eliminate it, but we are going to improve it. You won't be happy 100%, but we could just solve it by making everything gray.

I think this answer is perfectly reasonable. After all, it gives you an incentive to keep going for better gear: embarrassment.

However, on the positive side, Blizzard will offer more armor customization in Wrath. For example, they will make Raiding sets look different from PvP sets. For me, this means if I spy someone wearing a clear-cut PvP getup, I'm going to get the heck outta Dodge lickety split.
