==========

WoW: Love is in the Air 2009

So I felt inspired to make this comic after my boyfriend put the idea in my head.

If you're not familiar with WoW, the game is riddled with a new Achievement system that currently awards players special titles or items. Each of seven World Events award players a title. The Valentine's title being "The Love Fool." Anyway, to sum things up in a nutshell, most achievements are useless. (I did complete one that gave me a flying mount which moves faster than most, so that was not a useless achievement)

Anyway, one of the achievements "Fistful of Love" is to throw rose petals over a list of specific class and race combinations. Ten in total. In the end, a Troll Rogue was near IMPOSSIBLE to find. My guildmates, my boyfriend (who is now on a different realm than I am), and myself were having ridiculous trouble finding one. Thus, my boyfriend brought this idea up to me, and it amused me enough that I felt like drawing it.

Troll resemblances are completely coincidental (I just randomly picked settings in WoW Model Viewer). The hunter is Riziya, my boyfriend.

Created completely in Photoshop CS.

Time: ~10-12 hours

Haha! Thanks for the comment! (Sorry for my late reply.)

I find it funny that there is still a lack of Troll Rogues in WoW to this day. o_o;;

I didn't have trouble with the Troll Rogue myself, but back at Winter's Veil I couldn't find an Undead Rogue anywhere. Which surprised me, since I saw one get a prize at a costume contest at an RP event during Hallow's End. :P

I recall that troll rogues were becoming a lot more common some time after I made this comic, but all the same. TO HELL WITH ACHIEVEMENTS! D:

Hahaha, yeah, sometimes they are just a pain! But I'm working on building up a collection of titles (and wouldn't mind the proto-drake, either ;)) so I guess I'll keep at them. Still, the comic was great. :D

I got the proto on my druid a few years ago... >.>;; And I would still use swift flight form on her over it because no cast time. Two of my friends and I were probably close to world first on completing the quest, back in BC, so I cling to it. ^^;

I literally felt like there was gonna eventually be a debuff that either makes stealth impossible or flat out kills you because of how many petals hit me during Love is in the Air! at the end was when I finally decided to cash in on it >_> I woulda probably made 200 gold if I cashed in from the start.
