Sword and Bored: Boss fight

Awww, Mo’s very first boss encounter. Our wittle warrior is gwowing up. Of course, he can’t do it without the help of his new-found friends, whom we met last week.

It was a bit of a debate for me how to make these characters. It’s established that Mo is a kind of the typical fantasy character with a sword and shield, but we didn’t want setting to be completely fantasy. And one of the ways we wanted to pull away from the pure fantasy genre was with the other characters. Amilya the healer bridges that gap. She has a cloak and uses spells to heal, but her staff, panted suit, and coloring does take a small jump away from being pure fantasy. She’s not full-on science fiction, but she does help us step in that direction.

But enough of my jibber-jabber; let’s watch them fight in this week’s comic…

Main hero is such a looser, cheez. Cant even hit boss once, kneeled scared and calling his mommy. Luckily my experience with MMORPGs as a fresh blood wasnt anything like that (its obvious authors illustrating main hero from their personal experience).
I foking REKT everyone.

Now for the next episode they will exploit terrain. Have the tank hopping back and forth from the ground and a ledge. Making the mob take a long path to get him xD

DPS: Rez Plox.
ME: Don’t attack stuff without the tank!
DPS: HEAL better n00b!
ME: *silently marks player with X icon so I won’t heal him*.

If I were with you I’d fall off a ledge and spend the rest of the dungeon trying to find my way back to the others.

+10 points for the RPing healer. Reminds me of my days pre-cross server battlegrounds in WoW when I’d RP my troll lady being a badass field general, always insisting to guard the base in Warsong (to be fair, no one argued because they wanted to be out killing people… which means I got really good at guarding the flag).  Back then RPing was contagious!  One person talks in accent, and all of a sudden everyone’s in character!

SallyBowls1 CthulhuDawg That’s ’cause when you’re the tank you gotta pull before any of the other roles has an opportunity to pull! …Or heal, regain resources, load into the dungeon, etc. :)

Oh, this reminds me of the old times. When you are the tank and healer goes afk :’ Hey Mac, the dude’s killing me, patch me up…  Mac? Are you there? MAAACCCCC!   *5 minutes later* I’m back, had to take a little journey to the Toiletrealm. Did I miss something?’

Ah, this takes me back to my early MMO days.  I can still hear the bored tones of the guy on vent saying:

bored voice: “Add.”
(pause)
bored voice: “Add.”
(longer pause)
sheer panic: “Boss Add!”
(clang clang wipe)

This is my favorite one yet! I love that the healer is trying to roleplay among these non-RP’ers; I’ve been that guy before. 
Keep up the great work!
