WoW Moviewatch: Honorary Wonderboy

Their journey was long and arduous,
but for truth they hast now go.
And so they traveled onward...
... for what they could not know.

Today's Moviewatch isn't dedicated to a WoW machinima specifically but instead is a tribute to what should be immortalized in WoW in some way -- say, an expansion perhaps, in a cold north land. Where you got the power of flight. (That do anything for you?) Maybe include quests where you had to kill a yak from 200 yards away with mind bullets.

Well, either way, this video should be considered the WoW movie before it ever comes out (if ever). It makes perfect raiding music to quell the nerves when on a hard boss, and the scenery is right out of Dragonblight. The story of the video could easily be a WoW quest series.

Ladies and gentlemen, Conway Twitty Tenacious D and Wonderboy.

Interested in the wide world of machinima? We have new movies every weekday here on WoW Moviewatch! Have suggestions for machinima we ought to feature? Toss us an email at moviewatch@wowinsider.com.

Phat Loot Phriday: Tenacious Defender

When last we left our heroes, they had captured Abercrombie only to find out he wasn't really working with Sylvanas. Instead, he was renting val'kyr from a lucrative Rent-A-Val'kyr service, which could really answer all of our prom date issues.

"OK," Miranda said slowly. "Here's what we know. A demon working for the Forsaken is renting out val'kyr. We can't ask Abercrombie any more because Throgg knocked him out."

"Accident," Throgg muttered. "Just trying to jog his memory. Maybe I jog him too hard."

"However, we know that Vari-whatever betrayed Sylvanas," Miranda continued.

"I'd say we could just ask Sylvanas," Lolegolas chimed in, "but it's not like our last attempt went swimmingly."

"What's that?" Miranda replied. "You think that perhaps the Dark Lady of the Undead might hold a grudge against us because you spontaneously turned her into a puppy?"

"It was a cute puppy," Lolegolas said meekly.

"Outland," the Gilnean said quietly. "Dire fiends of that sort are most commonly found there. We storm the castle, so to speak, and start asking around with extreme prejudice."

Miranda scowled. "I suppose."

"What's wrong with Outland?" Throgg asked.

"Nothing, really," Miranda said quietly. "I'm just not supposed to be there."

Tenacious D discovered Northrend first

For what ever reason I found myself looking at some Tenacious D stuff the other day, and came across the Wonderboy video (you'll have to visit YouTube as we can't embed the video due to copyright restrictions). Wonderboy is a great little song, completely safe for work and young bucks (however pretty much everything else that comes out of Jack Black's mouth is not).

In the video they are going on "The Quest" for truth. And where does this quest take them? None other then high above the mucky muck. This mountain region has a surprising look and feel to it.

That's right. The D discovered Northrend, before any of us.

But wait, there's more.

There's even powers that The D posses which are featured in Northrend.

What powers are those, you ask?
