Here's hoping the Kleeyo came to take Sara home with her.

(I'm getting a lump in my throat).

It's a well composed piece of writing Clef, and the lighting effects do justice to the scene. I can feel Sara's sense of finality in all of this. Good job.

EDIT: 15 years... how old is Talia going to be?
Thisguy 2nd Dec 2012, 7:34 AM edit delete reply
What are the chances that it's Tallia?
Guest 2nd Dec 2012, 7:40 AM edit delete reply
Unless she broke a horn like her mother, i doubt it
Guest 2nd Dec 2012, 12:15 PM edit delete reply
Could be that the one horn is just hidden in the silhouette. Guess we won't know for sure until next update.

Hi Clef, the E-mail address on your contact page doesn't seem to be working and I wanted to ask you a question.
Clef 2nd Dec 2012, 7:43 PM edit delete reply
It works. Just be sure to have the subject stand out so I can search for it in case it went into my spam folder.

I quite like Sara's reflection on what happened, but the finality of her thoughts, though very touching and of circumstances, are quite sad. Looking forwards the next comic though.. Will Kleeyo take Sara home in Mulgore?
Ps: I second Daisybelle's question with this one: how old are Sara and Kleeyo?
oO Given Sara spent 25 years in the past... twice (younger and older self), she was about 55 or so at the end of previous comic (just guessing).. Now that'd make her around 70!
I have no clue about Kleeyo though. I had the feeling she wasn't born yet when Sara came to Kalimdor, so that'd make her mid-30/40 or something..
but really, how old are they?

I think it just as likely that Kleeyo has "come home" to be with, and take care of, Sara at the place where their epic friendship first began. It just makes sense that their lives together began at the Argent grounds, that it would end at the Argent grounds.
Adamantine 2nd Dec 2012, 7:10 PM edit delete reply
Good point. But what had become of Tallia? Is she with her mother? And what of Jyo?

Every group exists for the purpose of disbanding one day...

Even so, seeing Argent Crusade disband like that looks somehow... beautiful. The sun, as well. :)

Meaning general Fordragon was finally laid to rest and the Scourge undead were reduced to number managable?

Did Kirin Tor actualy managed to enhance their distruption spells to reach whole continent?
Clef 2nd Dec 2012, 8:56 PM edit delete reply
There must always be a lich king. Doesn't mean there must always be a scourge. Bolvar can put his armies to rest and still remain king. After all, everyone (supposedly) thinks the lich king is dead anyways, so makes perfect sense for there to be eventually no more scourge. The fact that Bolvar lives is only a tightly kept secret among the argent crusade (and the millions of players who watched the cinematic displayed for everyone ton see at the dalaran monument)
Paeris Kiran 5th Dec 2012, 12:51 PM edit delete reply
Terenas only said that Scourge without lich king would become feral and swept over everything in the world.

Without undead tight to "hive mind" (Generaly undead are driven by Lich king) (That is why Scholazar defences stoped them like Ungoro defences stoped Silithid /Quiraji/) they simply destroy everything. Most of the actual undead lacks any form of inteligence and the few remaining necromancers and liches do not posses sufficient control. (most of them are idiots, taking the "easy" path, that would never excel at anything in Dalaran, hell even Stormwind mage guild would be better than them)
The pylons did somehow stop them.

Wipe the scourge undead out and Bolvar can toss the helm into fires of mount Doom (well... into Blackrock mountain)... some undead will always rise spontaneusly, some pathetic necromacers will always come around.

I think that is the most beautifully appropriate but at the same time heartwrenchingly sad piece you have ever made. I salute you my good sir.
It's amazing to see how much your characters have matured. While I hate that the comic is ending, at the same time I think the way you are ending it is beautifully appropriate.

You know, speaking as a player who got into WoW during WotLK and ran around the Argent Tournament as my first experience in "endgame" material, I can't help but feel a personal connection to this. Running the various quests in Icecrown, especially for the Tournament grounds, grinding away until I could get my mounts and some of the awesome goodies at the time, it really formed a solid connection in my head between the Argent Crusade and the rest of the Warcraft world, so much so that to see the game move on to stuff like Cataclysm and Pandaria feels rather sad. Now the grounds are as empty as they are in the comic, and I can't help but feel that something's gone missing, some magic the game had is no longer there. In that way, I really love how Sara's reflecting on everything, and the finality in her thoughts is touching all my feels.

Damn good work, sir.

As someone who hit 70 in BC but never really did "endgame" stuff until the Tournament came around, I know how you feel. I think the Tournament was, in a way, the pinnacle of dailies... it had a definite purpose and consistent "theme" but was also quick and easy to do, especially if your group from the "boss" daily stuck together for the Citadel jousting daily. It just felt better than anything before Firelands and somehow didn't get old as quickly as Firelands did. My only regret is that its associated raid had to be so terrible... but who knows, maybe it'll be fun to go back to with 90s and just burn through.

ever finished a good book and was sad that the story had ended?

this is one of those.

want to find out whats on that last page!
Guest 2nd Dec 2012, 4:32 PM edit delete reply
So,what about jyo? What happened to her
Clef 3rd Dec 2012, 1:15 AM edit delete reply
I'd imagine went to Hearthglen with the bulk of the Argent Crusade.
ShootOStein 2nd Dec 2012, 6:13 PM edit delete reply
It begain with Lava Burst... maybe it may end with one :P

Trying to use words to describe the wonderful work you have done here is like trying to describe the most beautiful day one has ever spent. The effort will fall short and proves in the end unnecessary. The artistry here goes beyond the drawing: setting the scene, using the written word as a brush to paint a canvas of emotion, taking us to the perfect stopping point for this installment. Perfection here.

I don't want this comic to end!!!! :'(
Coragenan 3rd Dec 2012, 1:18 AM edit delete reply
As far as the age thing is concerned Sara could be fairly old as they say that users of the holy light tend to age slower then other people so priests and paladins tend to have longer lives then most if they don't get killed in their quests for righteousness and all. Who knows maybe Sara will pick up a weapon again and go out with a bang instead of fading away. Remember that Tirion was a old guy too and he went on to fight the lich king and beyond.

so this is almost it? D:

Looks like someone forgot about the fat that the prophecy said there were Two priests that whooped Sargeras's rear.
