38 - Tanking Position Available

A mentality of players that always irked me. We wipe on a boss for the third time to the same mechanic (someone not moving or switching targets or whatever) and some dps is linking the damage meters putting the blame of the wipe on the person doing the least damage.
9 times out of 10 the guy linking the dps meters showing themselves at the top are the ones who don't move out of the fire or don't switch targets as it will 'ruin their damage rotation'.

37 - Multi-tasking

Never start an argument by listing your wrath experience, you will most likely lose your point.

36 - (Ancient) Greek

I must admit I did have to google some Rhino facts to come up with this punchline.

So Remmy's name has now been revealed. I got into the habit when I created my hunter of giving my pets old fashioned names (couldn't think of anything witty). Remmy's name came from this. I had a cat named Remington, an owl named Kingston, and a wolf named Tiberius.

I found it amusing at least in my own wierd little way.

35 - Nameplates

Rhino's in for a tough fight. Remmy has apparently trained in the mystic art of perfectly positioned speech bubbles to hide information from the enemy.

34 - Gearscore

I wrote this comic back around the end of Wrath, back when gearscore had a bigger impact on the game.
Gearscore doesn't seem to be as big of an issue in Cataclysm. I guess that's because of the emphasis on guilds and mechanics killing you outright unless you know what to do.
Good for the game, bad for my punchline :p.

33 - Delusions

Introducing Rhino, the Orc Warrior. I mentioned previously that there was another character that I loved writing the parts for besides Remmy, this is the guy. Something about his character is just easy to write. Maybe because he's pretty much the embodiment of every bad PUG in game.

I think we've all been at that point where we didn't understand how much stronger a max level character was than us and tried to intervene in a Crossroads raid. This of course leads to the next stage of development whereby we learn to run for our lives from gankers in Booty Bay rather than baiting them.

32 - Grind on

I remember one of the first things my friend showed me in WoW when he introduced me to the game. He logged onto his horde character to show me the crossroads and there was an alliance raid taking place, and a whole bunch of horde players trying to get to the NPCs before they died to turn in their quests, while others waited for respawns.

Needless to say I didn't see the crossroads as too safe from then on.

31 - Intro to The Barrens

The actual flight path here is confusing, but I needed it to make the joke progression work.
Essentially they go from the first panel east to the scar, then back west to the fort, then east again. That's effiecient.

And yes, what's a WoW comic without some mention of Barrens chat. I do wonder if the alliance will get their own version of barrens chat or if it's a horde only phenomenon.
