So Wait...He was in off spec the whole time?

Now I'm scared to see him in main spec...

Earlier comic had him telling Tallia he had been Counterspelled. Several months prior.

Happy New Year Clef!

In fairness, as a former mage, it's a lot easier going from Fire-Arcane-Fire than it was for me trying to go Frost - Unholy.

I think Tallia just broke the comic's imaginary rating in panel 5. She needs to understand relative strengths: right now she is probably at best level 25-30 ish, even though she's used spells that WoW would recognize as coming from a higher level. She just doesn't have the combat experience of her mom and Sara yet. Allistair is at LEAST level 90 with the skillset he is using. Imagine coming into the game knowing nothing, and happily grinding your way to level 20. You're feeling pretty good about yourself, and then you accidentally stumble upon a level 90 in action.

Yah. That.

It's also a case for her being in the 20s level that there's been no indication that SHE has an offspec. In original comic Kleeyo makes mention of Tallia being trained as Disc, but honestly she would have much better DPS were that the case, so pretty much Holy, with a smattering of Shadow spells she shouldn't be using. );-9

I like the response of the confused healer moments before the blast!

About Talia's swearing, would that have been in Common or Taurahe? I'm full of curiosity about which of our dear bi-lingual teenage heffer's languages is her primary. They say you can tell by whichever one someone curses in. :)

Hope you had a good break Clef!

It's interesting, because Tallia was raised initially by The Earthen Ring, which would have exposed her to a lot of Orcish. But at very young age she became Sara's ward in the Argent Crusade, which operated almost ubiquitously on Common. At the beginning of this story arc she was at Thunder Bluff trying to earn a first quest, so she does identify strongly with her people.

Y'know, it's possible she could be multi-linguaal to a degree. Some basic Orcish from the Ring, Common from the Crusade, Taur'ahe, and Sara may have even taught her some human, which is NOT the same as Common.

:O I didn't know WoW lore has a human language separate from Common. I thought Humans, as one of the younger Azeroth races, defaulted to a language that was already shared by the Dwarves, Gnomes & High Elves. Now you've got me even more curious.

I think the comment is, the Common Sara taught her would not necessarily be the Common most humans use. IE a lot of swearing and inappropriate words. Sara did have quite the mouth (and temper on her) on her when she was younger.

Common is linked to humans, but it's not a "human" language. Common is the Esperanto of Azeroth. It was developed as a communication medium that would enable different races to communicate with each other. It was included in the original game, then quickly surgically removed because players are asshats. It is considered a primary language of the Alliance, but also known by members of the Horde. If you've read "War Crimes" Baine is not defending Garrosh in court using Taur'ahe.

While humans don't have an officially named language other than Common, the human language undoubtedly evolved from the Vrykul tongue spoken by the first humans, namely the strangely weakened children born to Vrykul parents at some point after the Titans left Azeroth. The presence of Vrykul words mixed into Common fairly guarantees it.

Did you just blow up a panda? I'm seeing some funny Fallout 4 carnage going on right now.
Clef 10th Jan 2016, 10:38 PM edit delete reply
Yep, the novelty of reverse pickpocketing nuke grenades on unsuspecting victims has been fully restored in that game.

Why is it I think our worgen friend just blew up the guy in the last panel's wife/daughter/granddaughter/SO?
