About this comic

Today’s comic features the face of N13 backer, David Grossman (thanks David!), and a joke inspired by a tweet I caught yesterday by The Angry Orc. You should follow him if you are at all a MMO / WoW fan. He cracks me up.

Speaking of WoW, very much looking forward to heading to Blizzcon in November. Got a lot of things planned that weekend, including something rather top-secret stuff, but don’t worry…as soon as I can say something about that, I will. Until then, let’s just hope my house moving / avalanche of projects doesn’t kill me.

    I don’t get it.

      I will preface this with the fact that I have not played WoW in years, and I was a casual solo player 90% of the time.

      I think it has to do with the order in which you press your action keys in World of Warcraft. I never got so good at it that I had a system down, but I know people who do.

    Unless you are a mage, then it is 1,2,2,2,2,2,1,2,2,2,2,3,1,2,2,2….etc.

    You think this is bad? Try playing the Warden class in Lord of the Rings Online, it is literally 2-3x more complicated, and yet it still only involves numbers.

    Rotations is so BC.

    Priority lists, d00d.

    God, I miss that game!

    You could play A Paladin in FFXIV :3

    1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3… maybe 4.

      Well here’s another idea Cervantes had first: Monty Python’s cseehe shoppe sketch is just a reworking of the scene in chap. 59 where the innkeeper tells Sancho he can order anything he fancies for supper. Then one by one the innkeeper explains why he can’t produce that particular item.Which brings me to the choice of mug vs. magnet. How do I know it’s not like the cseehe or the innkeeper’s menu, and all I’ll end up with is an excuse?

    The funny thing is I’ve been here so many times. Once I assign those keys I forget the actual name of the spell. This has made it very difficult for me to discuss rotations with folks.

    Waiting for the day WoW goes to the MMRPG graveyard like EverQuest, and the like. Thankfully its happening faster than most think. Hence why most aint getting the joke.

  10. Yeti says:

    as a non WOW player the first thing that came to my mind was a friends episode where they number the erogenous zones and the order they would want them ‘attacked’.

    Time to bow my head in shame

    Obviously between the 4th and 5th 4s he needs to add in 65562, duh!

    Geez, how many David Grossman’s are there? You got the developer at Telltale (former Lucasarts), then there’s the jackass Army Ranger game basher; now this guy (all associated with games, mind you). I should change my name to David Grossman. It’s like a higher calling.
