Well, the release date of MoP has been announced. September 25. That's just 2 more months of finishing up whatever we want to finish this expansion. For me, that time is going to be spent farming gold for the expedition yak mount. Another 30k to go.... -_-

I WAS trying to finish up the Frostbitten achievement. Just need Vyragosa, but no matter what day/hour/server I look on, every time I go to storm peaks someone is camping for that stupid Time Lost drake, and subsequently kills Vyragosa within 5 seconds of her spawn. Nothing like staying up to 4am just for a 5 second attempt. Too much frustration.

Exit question: What are you hoping to finish up (if anything)?

Aren't Taurens supposed to have 3 Fingers? Meh, who am i to decide how one creates their comics.

They are.

Two fingers and a thumb.

I got tired of finishing up a way back as the wait for Mists dragged on, so I unsubbed. Once Mists arrives I'll be back though with hopes of it being a cure for the horrors of Cataclysm :-)

Well, so far it seems to be fixing a lot of problems that cata had, although I hope that means its not creating new ones in its place.

Unfortunately, that seems to be the trend... BC fixed quest structure and a lot of specs but had a lot of content beyond the reach of casual players, an annoyingly rigid raid progression that sometimes locked out even people who had the time and ability to raid, and some really weird gear. Wrath made it a lot easier for people to at least see dungeon and raid content but went too far in that direction, producing Heroics and even raids that were boringly easy for casuals by the end and causing a lot of players' skills to stagnate or fail to develop like they would have in older content. Cata had more quality-of-life improvements and struck a better balance between "easy to reach" and "hard to win" with Heroics and raids, but some of the Heroics went too far (especially because Wrath had given a lot of Dungeon Finder users an inflated sense of self-worth that didn't mesh well with challenging encounters) and the raids felt... lacking in comparison to previous expansions, which was especially disappointing because the leveling zones were also shorter and had less content. Of course, this was partly because Cata had also overhauled the older zones, but that wasn't handled very well (especially in terms of achievements and such) and didn't really matter to a lot of veteran players who just wanted more stuff to do on their existing characters.

The good news is that Blizzard still seems to know how to learn from mistakes. They've messed up in just about every way possible already, so there isn't much left for Mists to do wrong, especially since the new talent system and Cata's gearing changes are going to make it a lot easier for players to master (or re-master) their characters quickly and start working on learning the new dungeons and raids, which will hopefully make PuGging a lot more pleasant and guild runs easier to put together (since at the very least there won't be as much "I'm not sure my spec can handle it", stopping at the first boss and going "Holy shit my spec is terrible", or worst of all stopping at the first boss and going "HOLY SHIT THE TANK/HEALER'S SPEC IS CRAP! So much for this run..."

Well said! :D (Bl**y Cata)
Kat 28th Jul 2012, 7:22 PM edit delete reply
Only thing left, really, is saving gold for Mists. I completed the rogue legendary last week, four of my chars are 390+ iL, I finished Loremaster with my I'm just having fun. :)

Oh yeah...the other thing is waiting for the next comic from you. I really enjoy them. :)

Leveling alts to 50ish, realizing I have to go through Outlands and rolling a new one. MoP can't come soon enough
Clef 28th Jul 2012, 8:23 PM edit delete reply
Aw, but Outlands is so fuuuun.

As long as you stay out of Netherstorm, Shadowmoon, Blades Edge, Terrokar...

Alariais 28th Jul 2012, 8:48 PM edit delete reply
Two months? I can't do everything I need in two months! *sigh* Let see...first thing first, level up my two level 70 worgens to 85, and then work on maxing their profs. which are really low right now. Then if I am able to get that done, maybe start leveling my blood elf warlock and work on her skills. This is going to be a fun two months.
ArcticSirius 28th Jul 2012, 10:28 PM edit delete reply
I just want to get Shadowmourne finished before 25m becomes solooable content for a Blood DK. 15/50 shards >_>
JSStryker 29th Jul 2012, 12:43 AM edit delete reply
Go Kleeyo show that orc what it means to fight with honor! I can see how Sara mistook Kleeyo for a paladin.

I gotta say this story arc has really captured my attention especially the last 2 comics.
Cyilla 29th Jul 2012, 3:28 AM edit delete reply
My next to months will be spent idling around in Stormwind, starting at your comics trying use your stuff to help me get better at my horrible arting skills, and basically just being bored. :c

More comic. Need more! Loves it so..
Auroro 29th Jul 2012, 4:41 AM edit delete reply
I just trying to finish my mage powerlvling while saving the enchantment powerlvling 5.0.0 hit the server. No more rods to upgrade, She is ready to go with her tailoring (WotLK rank). Getting the mats for my monk's powerlvling, then need to work on getting the justice point to max out so i can buy BoA gear for the Monk, missing the caster and the weapons. I do hope i will have enough time to get all that done in time.
Daisybelle 29th Jul 2012, 5:56 AM edit delete reply
([Ahem] Glad there's at least one person above me talking about the comic itself.)

This is getting really excting Clef! Panel #4 is great to look at! That anxiety and determination in Kleeyo's face!

Superb lines too! "Horns and hooves, you're a demon." ROFL! "Do you not serve us?" XD

"Your skill at butchering the unarmed is exceptional. Let's see how you do against someone who can fight back!" - I can *FEEL* Kleeyo's rage!

He's gotta be the unluckiest orc in Southshore - of all the time travelling taurens he could have come face to face with it had to be a member of the Argent Dawn! XD

And then things got messy.
Anyone else thinking that Kleeyo just messed up the timeline? It will be intresting to see what come of this. 30th Jul 2012, 5:25 PM edit delete reply
looks to me more like she saved the timeline... the paladin wasn't there, but Sara didn't know about druids as a child so she mistook Kleeyo for what she DID know - thus completing the circle.
Jeknar 30th Jul 2012, 6:21 PM edit delete reply
Kleeyo is a shaman... But i see your point...
Ayshela 31st Jul 2012, 3:38 PM edit delete reply
right. sorry, hadn't slept in two days. words and details escape me. glad I was coherent enough you got the gist anyway. =)
TheMjohann 30th Jul 2012, 7:20 PM edit delete reply
Maybe, but i have another outcome in mind. <.<
It will be intresting to see either way.
Aaron 2nd Aug 2012, 7:50 AM edit delete reply
Agreed with the others; seems like she may be creating a stable time loop. :-)
TheMjohann 3rd Aug 2012, 1:25 PM edit delete reply
Well if you mean that Sara was saved then yes. The timeline is stable, but it dosent mean that it was not thrown off its intended course.
And any alteration in the past could create a new timeline that instead of messing up history simply overwrites it without anyone even being aware. Aside from the bronze flight.
Anyway il post my guess after seeing how it goes, id hate to post a accidental spoiler. <.<
ralanr 29th Jul 2012, 10:15 AM edit delete reply
I just want to get Pebble from Deepholm. Which is freaking IMPOSSIBLE because the quest is NOT THERE most of the time.

it might as well NOT EXIST!
Jeknar 30th Jul 2012, 6:29 PM edit delete reply
I've been really bored with the actual content that i didn't even bothered in finishing it on heroic mode.
I would kill Ragnaros Heroic (problably the most epic fight i've seen) but since my core-mates already left the game, i'll just wait till August 25th and go play Guild Wars 2.

No more Azeroth for me...
isaac 30th Jul 2012, 6:55 PM edit delete reply
I'm still trying to get that damn legendary staff...but lots of players aren't coming back till mop so its hard to find a grp for firelands. Im also trying to get alar and the insane title but I'm not staying up for hours on that
Xerii 1st Aug 2012, 11:45 PM edit delete reply
161/1000 Cinders for me. I never was able to complete ANY of the chain with my guild so I had to resort to whatever pugs I could to even get this far, and now with MoPs release date announced I highly doubt I'm going to be able to finish it until 90. Oh well, that's the MMO life.
isaac 3rd Aug 2012, 10:47 PM edit delete reply
Ya I've been puggin to, at least they were heroic pugs right now I'm 173/250 in siphons so I got like....2 months at the most if I do heroic 10s
Haru 31st Jul 2012, 10:15 AM edit delete reply
I found it funny I got Time-Lost but can't find Vyragosa, the one I actually wanted.
Tibu 31st Jul 2012, 10:13 PM edit delete reply
All I do atm is farming some coins (I just call them this right know, don't want to look up for the real name) in Tol Barad (is that the Enlish name, too? lol). I want the dragon mount, after 1 1/2 with only the spectral horse/wolf. And maybe I can finally find some time to grind my guild char to 85 and her guild to Lv2, so I can do a tranfer to my "main" server.
Tibu 31st Jul 2012, 10:14 PM edit delete reply
1 1/2 years and blah or whatever I've forgotten, too.
yadayada... don't blame me. It's 00:14 here and I'm tired.
Guest 1st Aug 2012, 2:11 AM edit delete reply
Hey Cleff, I just noticed something - IS YOUNG SARA CLUTCHING A TOY COW?
Clef 1st Aug 2012, 9:13 AM edit delete reply
Yup. Its a stuffed cow. Perhaps the reason why she thinks Taurens are so huggable.
Daisybelle 1st Aug 2012, 9:49 PM edit delete reply
(The above post was from me via my iPhone - didn't realise I wasn't logged in)
Lady taurens are *not* huggable?

...and now she's about to be rescued by one. Well, without asking you to give away any of the plot I have a feeling that it's going to instil in Sara a form of hero worship.
Quaza 1st Aug 2012, 12:30 PM edit delete reply
I feel your pain with Vyragosa - thankfully my server is low-pop so I eventually got it.

My advice is find who those Time-lost campers are, and offer an award if they can summon you for the Vyra kill.
ExPaladin 3rd Aug 2012, 4:01 PM edit delete reply
Hmm... Well, I'm not finishing up anything really. I quit WoW two years ago, after the fall of the Lich King. My character was a Death Knight anyway and so, he had had his revenge. With no purpose, he went to eternal sleep and left the fate of Azeroth to the living.

I still enjoy reading WoW comics though. :)
