Uh oh...BOTH the creepy new humans know Kleeyo?

This is the first comic of the concluding chapter. Not much going on, just introducing two new characters that will play some more or less important roles, one in the near future and one in the distant future.

Anyways. I read the new Ghostcrawler blog post, and it does indeed look like that character achievements will be consolidated into a single account pool, which was what I was most looking forward to in MoP, so I've resubbed in the meantime. The email under my contact information is also my realID, if anyone is interested in some cross-realm dungeon achieves or BGs and the such.

From what I've seen so far on the beta mounts are account wide too. I have my Red Proto Drake from my druid on my hunter and all the pre-mades I have.

Bwuah-- The concluding chapter?!? By that, you mean the end of chapter 1, and after that a chapter 2, right?


Also, how is a human from the Earthen Ring? I thought you had to be a shammie to be from there (or is he a dwarf?)

That gets explained in about 2 comics.

Interesting development; still sad over the "concluding chapter" part. Will miss these two when it ends.

Pshhh, this "concluding chapter" thing is obviously just one ongoing april's fool joke, believe me.
This comic will last forever.

I sure hope it never ends. This comic is too good! If he stops making these comics, I'll... I can't even think of a decent threat. The thought of this comic ending is too much to handle...

Didnt Arthas kill what was left of Ner'zhul?
Clef 13th May 2012, 6:28 AM edit delete reply
The Lick King was the fusion of Arthas and Ner'zhul, but supposedly Arthas' side was what held Ner'zhul back all those years. Once Arthas' physical body died, it is only assumed that Ner'hul was back in complete control of the armor again. Judging by how Bolvar reacted after putting on the armor, it seemed apparent he also fused with Ner'zhul. However unlike Arthas, Bolvar was not corrupted, so the balance between the pure and impure sides of the two should cancel each other out, leaving the Lick King permanantly passive and docile.

Well permanently... just until someone actualy gathers sufficient force to sweep through Scourge´s ranks once and for all and wipe them out...

Though with casualties between dragongflights and new conflict between Horde and alliance that is not going to be any time soon... With no Scourge there would not be any need for lich King and that damned crown could be destroyed.

This statement is actually incorrect and this idea pops up far too often. Although there is no indication in the WoW game world that Ner'Zhul is gone(in fact the Lich King, during an Alliance quest in Howling Fjord, states he was once a shaman implying that Ner'Zhul is still around) in the final chapter of Christie Golden's 'Arthas: Rise of the Lich King' Arthas is still in a dream conflict with his 'good side' (Matthias Lehner?) and 'Ner'Zhul' fighting over the remnants of his soul (remember in WC:III Arthas lost his soul to Frostmourne). Arthas' ultimate decision was to destroy both of them by thrusting frostmourne through their disembodied forms. Expelling them forever from his mind. Ner'Zhul is dead. Bodily, spiritually, mentally, metaphysically, and is in all ways bereft of life and influence over the Lich King entity. Bolvar has nothing to fear of Ner'Zhul because Ner'Zhul has not been a part of the Lich King since the beginning of WotLK. The argument that Arthas was holding Ner'Zhul back flies entirely in the face of the entire story line of WotLK. The Arthas was holding back the scourge, according to Uther the Lightbringer's speculation in the Halls of Reflection dungeon, but for an unknown purpose. This purpose was revealed at the end of the encounter with the Lich King in ICC when he explained to Tirion Fordring that wanted to face the mightiest heroes that Tirion and the Light could muster in order to corrupt them and use them as his ultimate weapons of destruction "You trained them well Fordring. You delivered the greatest fighting force this world has ever known..right into my hands. Exactly as I intened". Sorry got side tracked there. But yeah Ner'zhul isn't an issue. The more you know.

I read about 10 webcomics (mostly WoW) that update regularly, and I can easily say that this is the one whose updates I look forward to the most.

I hope this "concluding chapter" is long enough to give you the inspiration to continue. And remember, if this final storyline somehow makes continuation that makes sense impossible, there's always the power of retcon.

sorry to bitch about this but did you catch my comment/idea in your last comic
Clef 13th May 2012, 6:23 AM edit delete reply
My bad for not responding. . Comic authors are typically supposed to respond to every comment they receive. I know I've been particularly bad with that. I'm always open to suggestions. Tallia's "ownership" however is fairly planned out for the rest of the story, however.

Ok thanks just wanted to be heard that all!

The great majority of the comics I read have little to no response from the authors to comments. Not to say they don't read the comments, the simply don't respond. The fact that you respond to so many of your fans is more of a novelty then the norm. A novelty that I greatly enjoy, btw.

yes. that Lick king was a really hard boss :D

Nice forshadowing, always nice to leave a little cliffhanger for the imagination to wonder what will happen next. Oh and do you mostly play horde if i remeber or do you have any alliance characters?
The silly zealot 13th May 2012, 5:01 PM edit delete reply
He does have alliance characters: Sara for example.
Clef 13th May 2012, 9:20 PM edit delete reply
I almost entirely play Alliance. Kleeyo is my only (active) Horde toon.
The silly zealot 13th May 2012, 5:09 PM edit delete reply
Now there is something that bugs me: How can an army of leaderless undead be more dangerous than an army under not only a single faction but also one single mind?! The lich king's hivemind to be precise.
Why must there "always be a Lich king to hold them back"? Seriously, that army of skeleton is literally brainless!
PAeris Kiran 14th May 2012, 12:25 PM edit delete reply
Not really... they keep some traits...

There were many undead that were created spontanously... One Island somewhere near Maelstorm where Rhonin and Korialstrazs tries to rest when they flew on journey that took them to War of The ancients... They have minds, or more precisly what is left of their mind is further warped by magic... it is unstable. Plus add that there are still some inteleginet beeings like liches unacounted for...
TheMjohann 14th May 2012, 8:53 PM edit delete reply
Pluss you can always count on that there could be many Scourge splinter cells / cults that may may rise without a Lich Kings control.
With Nerubians, mad plague doctors and San'layn all having the power to raise a army of the dead.
One example is that cryptlord in EpL who claim he will be the new Lich king.
Zeroum 13th May 2012, 9:58 PM edit delete reply
... for telling the world that the Lich King is dead, and that I died with him.

The statue at Dalaran replaying the events was a nice touch.

Yours truly,

Bolvar Fordragon

Okay, to help answer some questions for the author.

The Scourge when not controlled/contained, is violent and feral, as would mindless undead be by fantasy and sci-fi lore. an army of walking corpses could potentially wipe out the population of the world to sate their bloodlust.

Arthas held the Scourge back for a very long time, as Ner'Zhul aspired to create an army of the dead that could go against the Burning Legion and win(he'd need to wipe out several worlds to do that). when Arthas removed his physical heart, he signed his death sentence when he would eventually be defeated(the average is you only live about 6 seconds after your heart is removed from your chest, Arthas' life was prolongued through the necromancy of Frostmourne and the crown/helm of the Lich King).

Bolvar taking up the crown of the Lich King was his aim to contain the Scourge and keep them from going berzerk on the still living populace. and if any undead leader is to be feared it's Sylvannas who is a ruthless and cunning strategist with precision aim(we're talking Samurai with the Umi Bow precision arrow shots! she's said to be able to shoot a sparrow in the eye while it's in mid flight).

I come back to this site a few times almost every day hoping to find a new comic. call me clingy, but I like the comics.

I'll need to write down that REAL ID info so I can talk to you personally. ^_^ not every day you can meet someone who writes something you enjoy reading. ^_^

I wonder... how would the beloved banshee queen fare if there was Vereesa and Alleria standing in her way... Not that Rhonin and Turalyon would be far behind if Vereesa and Alleria went for such undertaking...

And as mighty as Banshee queen is... she would never beat them.
The silly zealot 15th May 2012, 8:00 PM edit delete reply
Still, the Lich King actively tried to destroy the eastern kindoms and kalimdor during Wrath of the Lich King and prior. But, despite his seemingly unending horde of undead, he failed, not only to kill everyone, but also to protect his very own capital! His legions even failed to protect him!
Besides, as I said before, what chances does a tide of charging, pseudo-mindless undead have against a well organized army of allied forces?
DaveLukewski 14th May 2012, 8:01 PM edit delete reply
aww right when i went to check your email for RealID, i realized you´re on US server :(
Clef 15th May 2012, 10:01 PM edit delete reply
Yeah. According to my counter, only half this comic's reader base is from the U.S.

On a re-read just caught Koardneas being an anagram for Saradenko, nice touch.
