A Change of Color

September 07, 2009

Back to the World of Warcraft for this comic. One of the classes in WoW is the Druid, their gimmick is that they can fill pretty much every role in the game by changing into different forms. Bear form fills the role of a tank, taking the brunt of the damage so that others can deal the damage. Cat form is for an all-attack role. Moonkin form is for long range magic, and Tree form is for healing. The down side to these forms is they don't get the visual benefits to having a bad ass set of armor, in fact, for the longest time all Druid forms looked completly identical.

Then one day Uncle Blizz got off his ass and added in a recent patch to the game that a Druid's hair color would from now on change the coloring of at least the Bear and Cat forms, with some of the color choices being a bit more unusual than other, thus this comic!

This conversation happened more or less how it is written. For a more authentic experience, read all of Ibi's line with a cool English accent.

On a side note, I must say I did a horribile job with the animal forms. The Bear is ok, but as much as I tried I could not get the cat form to not look like a wolf. Tree form is so much easier to draw.
