    -> Those Cool Orb Thingies That Kael’Thas Had That We Never Found Out What They Were For <-

    take a closer look on Warcraft 3 TFT then you might see that Kael' cast them at his Foes…
    mind : "he smash his magic balls into foes faces …" ;)

  9. Gazimoff

    The important thing is… will we be able to rename our pet Warlock, or will we be stuck with something lame?

    WHAT??? They nerfed Blink? 20 sec. cooldown is outrageous! Why play a mage now at all? You can’t even suck marrow more than thrice a minute FFS!

  19. Aliok

    My main character is a mage, and I have to say that I LOVE THIS COMIC! Especially the bit about having a pet warlock. And the alt text. XD Thank you so much for making my week. I haven’t had such a good laugh in a while.

    This was awesome, although as a warlock I’m seriously considering a name change so mages will just trade me in.

    I wantz meh orb things naaoo! : >

    Rofl, wtb mage armor buff.

    Oh and if anyone is curious, those orbs are actually called Verdant Spheres, and the warcraft RPG game’s manual says: This powerful arcane artifact appears to be a sphere of green magical fire that hovers around the owner in much the same way an ioun stone orbits its owner’s head. Legend has it the orb siphons a portion of the essence of every evil outsider slain by its owner. The orb draws on the essence of these demons for its own powers, the spirits writhing in torment within it for all eternity. The reason it is most sought after by arcane casters, however, is its ability to enhance spells. All fire spells cast by the owner have their range widened, increasing the area of damage.

    I love the info text when you highlight the article. Great touch putting mages balanced… with Deathwing!

  25. Chris

    Yes, they are Verdant Spheres. But it’s much funnier to call them what I hear the majority of players (and Mike) call them. :)

    “Leaving him a weak pile of jellied flesh condemned to an eternity of shapeless torment as his mind desperately screams for release”

    Nice “I have no mouth, and I must scream” reference there. =D

    Those “cool orb things” are called Verdant Orbs, they’re supposed to take some of the power from your defeated enemies.

    Fantastic comic! Keep it up!

    Btw, those orbs Kael had, which wasn’t demonstrated in WoW, were used for spell casting in WC3:TFT. Blood mages would attack or cast a spell with them and an orb would dissapear for a moment.

  37. Yorgl

    Hilarious !

    But as a French I don’t always get all the references / puns. Is there something to understand in the “Frostbolt => Racist” or is it just random ? :)

    they look a lot like the real mage ptr notes….

    Will you be able to summon any warlock or will this be a factor of randomness? I mean, i don’t want to end up with some scrub in greens.

  40. Gnomeaggedon

    Bah.. no buffs to Fire?

    QQ….

    PS: Can we change the annoying quotes my pet Warlock says… I’d rather an Imp than this annoying thing…. Mmm maybe we can sacrifice it.

    This could really be true, they keep buffing mages for whole time since Cataclysm…

    For some vague reason, this reminds me of vanilla locks.

    iirc the orbs Kael’thas had were filled with magical power and enhanced his own powers. He used one of them to keep himself alive by placing it in his chest after you killed him as a raid boss.

    best.daily blink. EVER! I lol’d so hard. Not all WoW players are tards, but it would seem some people actually cry for similar changes.

    @ daily blink: Thanks u so much for choosing mages as the class to get buffed :D && this dailyblink is definitely going among my favorites.

    @Zaoo: lol good 1! :) && im sure it would be semi-random, because we are balanced with other mages. It will probably choose from the best warlocks online at the moments, as the sucky ones would need to continue leveling, for future mage use.

    “blink” should have been “your opponents screen goes black for 30 seconds.”
    the blink note should have been for ice lance :) Also, Gnomeaggedon was right! where r my fire buffs? lolz o well, i will TOLERATE these changes.
    @ gus: No. bad Gus! No! pallis were already affected by this mage patch anyways, no being greedy.
