One comic, two characters introduced. I made Kleeyo's kid a priest so I could use specifically the Avatar Raiment as her armor, purposefully to create the whole "Mahou Shoujo" motif with the wings and nifty magic wand and such (Benediction in this case). I will be playing much more into that later.

The second character is my comic rendition of my mage alt, who was my raiding alt during BC. Once Wotlk rolled around Jyosette took over that role and my mage became just a AoE farming alt and daily quest grinder. With this, all five of my toons have now made their appearance in S&K.

Yeah, Kleeyo's shield sucks...both Kleeyo's Elemental spec and Sara's holy spec were both stuck with the ilevel 200 badge shield. (bastion of light I think it was called?). It's not that I kept passing on better shields-its that they almost never dropped. 1 year of raiding wrath and I only saw TWO spellpower shields drop. TWO in the entire year. The 213 off Anub'rekan dropped once and the one off 10 normal Anub'arak appeared once. That was it. Fortunately I had better luck with tanking shields, but DAMN. I mean WTF.

Exit question: Did any of your guilds suffer drop rates so bad on certain gear that it harmed raiding?

Wow. She's got a daughter. I never took her for one to be a mother.

Oh my GOD panel two is so freaking saccharine I think I need to take a shot of insulin. O_O

CUTE TAUREN CHILD IN TROUBLE! DEPLOY MASSIVE OVERKILL!

Kleeyo's child? Okay, seriously, this is now personal, and therefore there is no such thing as "overkill," there's only "open fire" and "time to reload" against the Scarlet Crusade. Make the depths of the cave into an abattoir decorated with the burnt and charred corpses of thine enemies. Slaughter and maim and kill until nothing remains but a fine red paste that shall itself be burned to ash by the fires of vengeance and scattered to the four winds so that their spirits may never know true rest. AND SALT THE EARTH BELOW SO THAT A THOUSAND YEARS HENCE ALL SHALL KNOW THAT THERE IS A PRICE TO BE PAID FOR MESSING WITH CUTE TAUREN CHILDREN AND THAT PRICE IS ETERNAL DAMNATION.

...Okay, I'm overreacting a bit. But that's only 'cuz I'm sympathizing with Kleeyo here; also ,rage is an emotion I know too well... <_<

Nicely drawn and the story's getting interesting by the updates

You make female Tauren look good, especially the little one =)

Excellent comic, as always.
as far as needed gear not dropping...i've never been THAT harmed by it while i was actually raiding, i usually was the one who lucked out and made out like a thief in a town of super gullible nice people. but, then, i was almost always the odd one out. (healadin during my naxx25 and ulduar10 days, and an enhance shamble during icc10), so i had no competition. though i have seen people suffer because of it, mostly in the trinket area.

Oooh... even her totems look pissed.
Btw, i thought the scarlet crusade would never hurt a priest of the light :O.
Drakness 17th Apr 2011, 11:04 PM edit delete reply
Tauren priests aren't priest of the light but of the "sun God" I forget the name. So it make perfect sense.
Arcanon 17th Apr 2011, 11:20 PM edit delete reply
Mahou Shoujo Tallia Magica ?

Well, there's "the light" that paladins and priests adhere to, then there "THE LIGHT" that the scarlet crusade commits atrocities in the name of. I'm sure there's a difference in there somewhere.

Besides, I don't think warcraft priests are considered "Holy" like they are in other fantasy games/worlds. The existence of the "shadow priest" characterizes that I think. For example, the Forsaken and the Worgen, which are both dark and cursed races, cannot be Paladins for the fact they go against the righteous stances of the paladin class (holy bearers of the light, ect). But they both CAN be priests.

*shrugs*. I dunno, Warcraft lore is screwy anyway.

Clef I need to start by saying your comic is awesome and only getting better. I thoroughly enjoy your style and that tauren child is ADORABLE!
I also want to say that i sympathize with you on shitty drop rates. My holy pally was stuck with the badge shield almost all of wrath because nothing ever dropped. >< I was only able to upgrade with the pvp shield when i stopped raiding (RNG ftl).
Anyway I'll stop rambling now and eagerly await the next part of your story. Keep it up!

@ Clef
Technically there isn't much of a difference between 'the Light' of, say, the Allies and the Scarlets, the biggest difference is that the Scarlet Crusade is full of a bunch of whack jobs who need some meds. But yea, the whole shadow priest thing is right.

Anyways, I completely agree with everyone, the story just got interesting, and omfg that kid is adorable.

how is it possible that that little tauren girl got better gear then her mother?
Clef 18th Apr 2011, 1:07 PM edit delete reply

Hey! Kleeyo worked really hard slinging thousands of Lava Bursts at Alliance to get that Relentless Gladiator set!

Tallia just got carried though Tempest Keep and SSC a few times by the Earthen Ring!

I'll throw my 2 cents into the 'There were no damned caster shields' ring. Of course a Holy Pally or a Shammy COULD always use any other caster off hand item instead but it just didn't feel right.
Cyilla 18th Apr 2011, 11:57 PM edit delete reply
First: BABY TAUREN ZOMG *SQUEEEEE*
Second: Awesome totems, they look like angry broccoli, 'cept without the green-ness.
Third: Cant wait 'til the next comic!!!

I only recently found this comic, but I have to say it's great! I have hopes for what happens at the end of this storyline. Is there some way I could send you (Clef) a suggestion privately? I'd post it here, but it would be a spoiler if you decide to use it.

My email address is under "contact information" in my blog tab.
Zaton 19th Apr 2011, 6:15 PM edit delete reply
Aww, the little tauren girl is sooo cute:) Can't say anysuch about those Scarlet bastards. Even the totems are angry at them! Also, I love Sara's "Your what!?" expression:)
Zaton 19th Apr 2011, 10:44 PM edit delete reply
BTW, did you noticed that the all the males in the comic so far have been made embarassed by the protagonists? Was it intended like that?
wurgel 20th Apr 2011, 12:08 AM edit delete reply
I dont want to know what happens the the scarlet, when she keeps on threatening Tallia... or do i?

Remembering how kleeyo 1-hits sara for eating her lunch and now kleeyo even called her totems (for the first time).
Clef 20th Apr 2011, 1:51 AM edit delete reply
Clef
Wow, this comic has brought in more comments then any other! I didn't realize Tallia's introduction would be so positive!

@Zaton...hmmm, not more so then a Charlie's Angels movie I suppose. Unless you count some no-name gnomes, the only male character I've really set out to embarrass and humiliate has been Deathwing, who I'm only just getting STARTED with.

I still believe that Sara and Kleeyo themselves have been the butt end of most of the jokes.
Bloodraptor EI 20th Apr 2011, 5:07 PM edit delete reply
Tallia is just so adorable, such a sweet looking little Tauren calf. ^_^ such a sweet little tauren priestess. too bad I cant help that cute little Tauren, them scarlets though would be laid out with level 85 epic dagger wounds, and a crack about Whitemane being easy. XD
Guest 20th Apr 2011, 7:45 PM edit delete reply
That executioner is about to get overkilled, with kleeyo pissed AND her totems, hell's about to break loose is all i can say ;)
