WoW Moviewatch: I Summon People Off Cliffs

Sometimes you have to admire the sheer maliciousness of WoW players. This is a classic "PVP" video from the Goon Squad guild on Mal'Ganis, famed for holding the Theramore flightmaster hostage. The Goon Squad warlock Dipex formed an "Azeroth Airlines" guild solely for the purposes of summoning people to their deaths. The general focus is summoning over cliffs, but the video also features summons over a waterfall, over the edge of Felwood, and down the Undercity elevator. There's also an impressive selection of hate mail.

WoW Moviewatch: Nether ray mounts


In 2.1, once reaching exalted with the Sha'tari Skyguard, it will be possible to get a brand-new type of flying mount: a nether ray! Pretty nifty, if you ask me; I was just recently lamenting the lack of flying mount variety. But what does it look like? Peep the video, friends! (For those who do not wish to peep it: its flying motions look pretty much exactly like the nether rays mobs in the game.) I wonder how hard that rep is going to be to grind...Props to Fibb, of Burning Blade, for making this.

And I know I always talk about the music in these videos, but...why does every WoW vid have to be set to hard rock or metal? I swear, if I ever make one I'm gonna set it to Pavement or Ella Fitzgerald or something...

WoW Moviewatch: How to fly


The title of this movie is a little misleading, as he never really tells you how he does it. However, the moviemaker claims that he's flying (without the aid of a flying mount) on live German realms. I've got my doubts on this one -- if you were really able to do this live, Blizzard would have hotfixed it by now. But you can take a look and decide for yourself.

WoW Moviewatch: World of Warcade


In a real life battle against Ragnaros, would you come out the winner? Also, while I don't know any French, I think there's some sort of joke at the end of the video being made about the way some of Blizzard's epic gear looks...

WoW Moviewatch: Hack and Slay with World of Warcraft


You're used to hacking and slaying in World of Warcraft, but this is something a bit different. I could make some guesses as to what inspired this sort of behavior but there are far too many options (priest nerfs? druid nerfs? paladin nerfs? alchemy nerfs?). You go ahead and take out those aggressive tendencies -- I'll be on the phone asking Blizzard about the cost of replacement CDs.

WoW Moviewatch: There is no cow level


...or is there? This video documents a not-so-secret cow level. From the quest text:

You find yourself promising to protect the cow on her way home. Upon finishing your sentence, you realize there's no possible way the cow could understand anything you've said.

WoW Moviewatch: Shadow Priest Public Service Announcement


Today on WoW Moviewatch we bring you an important public service announcement from your friendly neighborhood shadow priest. Well, at least he's friendly up to the point people start yelling "HAEL ME!!!" I really can't accept blame for anything that might happen after that point.

WoW Moviewatch: Drunken Kodo Riding


While it doesn't really surprise me, it does scare me a little to know that machinima-maker Oxhorn has a name for his kodo. I'd say more on what the video's about, but I hate to spoil a good ending!

WoW Moviewatch: The World of What? 2


Last week we saw an odd little piece of machinima called "The World of What?" And this week we find that its makers already have a sequel out -- uncreatively titled "The World of What? 2." But creatively titled or not, it's just as funny.

WoW Moviewatch: Inventing Swear Words 2 [Updated]


In episode 2 of the Inventing Swear Words series, our friends ponder how to properly advertise their newly invented swear words. (After all, they aren't effective if people don't know what they mean.) Features a special guest appearance by Hat the singing turtle!

Update: In my initial post, I neglected to mention that Inventing Swear Words 2 picked up the 3rd place prize for comedy in the 2006 Xfire Summer Movie Contest. An Xfire login is required, but they do have much higher quality streaming videos on their site, if you want to see Inventing Swear Words 2 in all its original glory!

WoW Moviewatch: Inventing Swear Words


We all know that World of Warcraft has filtering enabled by default that prevents us from offending anyone with potentially naughty language. So what do you do when you can't curse? Why, invent your own swear words, of course! This video, by machinima-maker Oxhorn, is hardly new, but it's still just as funny as the day it was released.

WoW Moviewatch: Huntard vs. Goliath


Paladinsucks points us to this fascinating video of a level 70 hunter soloing Azuregos. Yes, you read that right -- a single level 70 hunter soloing Azuregos. And before you say it can't be done, the hunter does say he spent 87 minutes working on this -- and if you can hold out for that long, I'm tempted to believe almost anything's possible.

WoW Moviewatch: The World of What?


This little bit of machinima defies all of my attempts to explain it, so you're just going to have to watch it if you want to know. All I can say is that it reminds me a bit of the Adult Swim show Robot Chicken. You know, if Robot Chicken were filmed entirely in World of Warcraft. (No, it doesn't hit RC's levels of shocking, but it is a collection of odd, amusing, and completely unrelated skits.)

WoW Moviewatch: The reckoning bomb


This video is not remotely new (though this copy is recently reposted), but since I don't think we've ever posted it, I thought I'd share this little piece of Warcraft history with you all. The paladin skill reckoning, while still darned handy, used to be much more powerful. For those who don't know, reckoning is a talented ability which gives the paladin, when hit by a critical strike, a chance of dealing an extra attack within a certain amount of time. However, in its original implementation, reckoning didn't have a time limit on its usage and would stack infinitely. As an example of how powerful this could be, here we see a paladin, who has saved up thousands of reckoning charges (by allowing himself to be crit repeatedly without striking back -- to the best of my knowledge with the help of a friendly rogue), one-shotting Kazzak. Yes, I'm talking about Kazzak the 40-man raid boss.

It doesn't surprise me that the ability was hotfixed within 24 hours. Not at all.

WoW Insider is interviewing Oxhorn and wants your questions!


Are you familiar with the machinima-maker Oxhorn? If not, you should be! In the 2006 Xfire Summer Movie Contest he won first place for short feature and fourth place for comedy. So if you haven't seen any of his videos before, you can check out some of his videos that we've featured on WoW Moviewatch before or jump straight to his YouTube profile for a some real entertainment. And, of course, linked above is perhaps my favorite Oxhorn video, the Anti-Elf Anthem.

So why am I talking to you about Oxhorn? We're going to be interviewing him, and want your input on what to ask. Have any burning questions about World of Warcraft or machinima-making that you'd like Oxhorn to to answer? Ask away in our comments, and we'll pick the best to ask Oxhorn next week.
