The Highmountain Tauren have witnessed the failed attack by the Alliance and Horde on the Burning Legion, and are seeking to unite the other tribes of the land. The
Hammer of Khaz'goroth

A Noxy Comic: Mists of Pandaria Speculation
We're sitting on a lot of Mists of Pandaria information and I really am having a hard time keeping it in. Since I can't hit publish yet, though, have a cute Noxy comic hot off the presses instead.
Noxy also asked me to request that anyone who wants to help write future comics should reach out here in this thread. She'd love to produce more of these so she needs
a comic writer
. And I think we all agree more Noxy art is always a good thing, so help her out!

A Guide to Patch 4.1's Vanity Items and a Wowhead Comic
As our own in-house artist Noxy would be quick to point out, 4.1 isn't all about the trolls and the 353 epics. It's also not just a filler patch meant to tide us over until Firelands. In fact, according to her, the patch is very important--it has a lot of shiny vanity items to play with! From ones you dig up to ones you're lucky enough to adopt, there were a lot of little things added in this patch. Read on for a wallpaper about them and a miniguide of where to find these fun items.
Rise of the Cute Kittens
Noxy was so inspired by the new vanity pets that were introduced that she made a wallpaper for you showing her true feelings towards this patch. Yes, she's awesomely talented. Yes, she should draw more.

Wow, its been a while, hm?
With all this commotion about possibly the most wonderful thing to ever happen to this game (in my opinion), I thought its a good time as any to make a comic about how ridiculous I find all the flame and troll wars.
I have been waiting for a
flying pony mount
for such a long time, and now not only does my main character get to have one, but ALL OF MY TOONS! And all levels of riding skill! Happiest day of my life. Kinda. ... I really like ponies. And sparkly things.
I threw together some wallpaper versions of the comic for you guys. :3

Did Somebody Say My Name?
2 years ago
A little while ago, the very talented Keydar from
Dark Legacy Comics
created a fine piece of art.
Since we did not have a blog to post about it at the time, we felt like we would share it again for everyone to enjoy!

Happy Midsummer Fire Festival, everyone!
Uh, nevermind. I'm a bit late for that now. Oh well! Its done at least.
Here's a Festival comic written by our lovely
. She raised the technicalities relating to the quests to
of the other factions main cities. So you've taken a flame, great! How? On a stick? And even then, where do you keep it, to stop it going out on your rush back to hand it into the NPC?
How about in your pocket? Well, that wouldn't be very safe now, would it? Your clothes would catch on fire..
Apologies again for the lack of comics lately, I've been incredibly busy, and I still don't have a full time comic writer!
Reminder: If you have any short WoW related comic scripts, or any comic ideas, please dont be afraid to mail them to me via

Pretty Picture Filler Week!
As you may have noticed, I've been slacking with the comics. There are a couple reasons behind this, but its mainly due to me being eye-bleedingly busy. I've been using the days I allocate each week for Wowhead, to work on
badge images for the wonderful
I will be drawing these for other staff members in the near future, and for those that want to commission me for similar badge-art as above, they will be available soon. I'll add some information about it in a future post.
The other reason for a decrease in comic numbers, is a lack of scripts. I no longer have a full-time writer to make them for me, and I'm having terrible writer's block!
So if any of you out there have any ideas for short, simple, and funny WoW-related comic script, please feel free to send an email to email@example.com. Who knows...it might get used!

I know this was supposed to be posted yesterday, but hey, we all have bad days.
is finally mine. Apart from the amazingly adorable chubby little piggy, my favourite part of this event is the
achievement. It's not difficult, doesn't have a story behind it, no special significance, it's just ironically mean. And that amuses me. Just one of those fun, selfish and silly achievements.
And so this week's comic has no joke, no punchline, etc. Just lots and lots of delicious and moist cake.

Ding ding, me again.
This week's script was written by and stars Koren (the BE priest lady). She's been hunting that darn
Time-Lost Proto Drake
for gosh knows how long, (so have I /sadface) and is frustrated how quickly it is snapped up by other people in the hunt for it.
So, good luck to her, and I hope she bags herself this prize mount soon. <3 (and me too)
Note: Please, for the sake of her sanity and mine, pretty please don't reply to this blog post saying, OH I HAVE ONE, I FOUND IT SO-SO EASILY, etc etc. Or blood vessels will burst. And she might stab me in the head with a pen. And, uh, ignore the fact she can't actually use a crossbow ingame, for comic purposes it's nifty and cute.

Happy Chocolate-and-Egg-day everybody!
We have to suffer without our bunnies and eggies for a little longer this year, but at least we get them for more than a day!
For 2009, Noblegarden will be hitting the servers soonly after Patch 3.1 is released, and will last for a week! So we'll all have plenty of time to get our pretty dresses and tuxes.

Tuesday! Time for a comic!
Sorry for the delay folks, this one took me a while to draw.
Plus I had my first raid on Saturday night, so I was reading up fights for hours. ;o /excuses
This week's script was written by, and stars, Snowfi. The little pink-haired mageykins.

Sorry folks, didn't have the time to make a full length comic this week. Busy busy busy!
But, as I had so much fun with the Boomkitty, I decided to go the other route.

I wish I could draw more of these with other classes, but the druid forms were just so flexible..
Anyhoo. I stuck them together and made a

, neato! Now... how do I switch? What does this button do-
OH GOD NO!
While drawing this I decided that a 'Boomkitty' would be the greatest class spec... ever. It's cute, and awesome.
Also, I've gone slightly insane.
That is all.
