Wait, so Ghath knew Kinar from before?
Kale 22nd Aug 2016, 3:57 AM edit delete reply
Its her brother, so I'd presume he'd been around to see the kind of fights they used to have.
Guest 22nd Aug 2016, 3:57 AM edit delete reply
He is her older brother
Guest 22nd Aug 2016, 5:34 AM edit delete reply
Ghath is one of her brother, other than Shai.

I gotta say I'm most interested in seeing what happens to Jorric over everything else at this moment. Being feral for so long it's definitely up in the air if he will be able to be cured and if so... he's been feral for years! It would be like if you woke up tomorrow ten years older all of a sudden!

I seriously psych myself up every Monday for the new page. It kills me to wait another week!

Mordin's pose strikes me as a little funny. It reminds me of those videos of cats standing on two legs going, "hurr durr I'm a hooman." I feel as though he should be in more of a fighting pose, like with his arms bent, ready to charge, rather than leaning back.

Sorry for the wordy feedback. I look forward to next week, Amocin!

I think it may be the bear thing, I looked up many pictures of bears to make sure I was getting the anatomy right... I think htey just look awkward standing no matter what, they seem very top heavy to me.
Ashdweller 22nd Aug 2016, 2:53 PM edit delete reply
I wouldn't worry about it, that is about exactly how a bear would stand right before slapping your head clean off your shoulders. Using the fall forward as momentum.
Natte Nabali 22nd Aug 2016, 3:06 PM edit delete reply
try looking at grizzly bears or polar for the standing pose?

otherwise looks great amocin.
Amocin 22nd Aug 2016, 3:12 PM edit delete reply
Amocin
Hmm... still not seeing the issue that some of you may be spotting.. perhaps you can explain better what looks weird about it?

Again, I looked up poses and this seems accurate to the pose I wanted.. which was something with movement in a way that looks like he might be backing away slightly, and agitated..
Guesticus 22nd Aug 2016, 10:10 PM edit delete reply
It _might_ have something to do with the wolves head on a bears body that is throwing people, personally it looks good
Dreamweaver 23rd Aug 2016, 1:40 AM edit delete reply
That's the problem with it the muzzle is too long for a 'bear'
Dargon 23rd Aug 2016, 10:07 AM edit delete reply
Dargon
That's correct Amocin. Bear's Are very top heavy and standing on their hind legs is rather awkward for them. They have to use their front legs for balance. Much like cats, only they don't have the use of a tail for counter balance.
However, don't let that pose fool you....their attack is Very Fierce and Devastating! Oddly enough back around the 15th/16th century the English Noble's and Knights use to Hunt/Fight them with Swords for Sport! :o
Talk about a High odds Fight! :p
Aetheos 22nd Aug 2016, 6:36 PM edit delete reply
The one week timeline isn't that bad for one single person considering she also does donation pics and stuff. Also I would suppose that the awkward standing pose is one reason why WoW/Blizzard never implemented it? Bears look derpy when they stand as the only purpose is to look bigger and more intimidating (as it is with a lot of predators and sometimes Prey), plain and simple.
Natter Nabali 22nd Aug 2016, 10:30 PM edit delete reply
ok's i see what you mean amocin and what aetheos says i can see what you was going for now for the look in the pose of the bear.

and i love how the whole comic is going not sure i want to see this one end though but looking forward for the new one too !

I literally squealed when I saw this page. Gods you keep us in suspense. I love it.

I reiterate my previous statement about moms.
Mikotaj Fenris 22nd Aug 2016, 7:54 AM edit delete reply
Curious. Very curious. My prediction was wrong. So, they'll fight it out. And seems they probably have before. BUT how did Ghath and Serid know what they were doing? And I wonder at Hotah's base if they have a moonwell for Joric (Yorik? Or Djorik?). I also wonder if Serid is any good with Children.
Guest 22nd Aug 2016, 7:55 AM edit delete reply
This is getting intense
Mikotaj Fenris 22nd Aug 2016, 7:58 AM edit delete reply
So, Kinar STILL loves Denor. It's become clearer now Amocin. And I know I keep talking about this couple a lot, my favorite pairing is actually Amo and Shai. I find it interesting, they were Life and Death, now are Life and Light.
Mikotaj Fenris 22nd Aug 2016, 8:05 AM edit delete reply
Kinar and Mordin are the Life and Death, interesting last panel, I like it.
WorgenRock 22nd Aug 2016, 8:50 AM edit delete reply
Kinar's glowing eyes make me think she's somehow mysteriously become a deathknight like Mordin.
Mikotaj Fenris 22nd Aug 2016, 9:14 AM edit delete reply
For whatever reason, that's just her eye color in cat form. She's not dead. Not yet anyway. Maybe, depends what happens for the next two months.
Mikotaj Fenris 22nd Aug 2016, 9:12 AM edit delete reply
I also like how you made the druidic plant like magic in the third panel
Aestral 22nd Aug 2016, 9:48 AM edit delete reply
Now that I think about it... What are the powers Mordin's using? Is that your interpretation of Emerald Nightmare, or something non-canon?
Amocin 22nd Aug 2016, 11:45 AM edit delete reply
Amocin
Some stuff is non-canon because 'boss type' characters have abilties and powers outside of what other people have, and gain their own unique abilities. Mordin's is a mix of Druidic and Death Knight abilities. The Emerald Dream responds to Druids, they can use it, though not as well as a Green Dragon could.

Not a lot has been shown in the emerald dream as far as what can and can not be done, so I fill in blanks where I see them but also twist things to my interpertation. It keeps people guessing rather than just saying "This is how it has to be, cause we know thats what lore says."

For example, only the most powerful of creatures can resurrect a living person. This 'game mechanic' of many people being able to rez makes death seem kind of pointless.. Giving it to only the most powerful makes things seem more dangerous for the characters, as a rez is not waiting around the corner for them.
Guest 22nd Aug 2016, 10:02 AM edit delete reply
Lol Serid thinking kinar is low level xD
Rubinelle 22nd Aug 2016, 10:37 AM edit delete reply
Few things. One, how does no one ever remember details like Ghath being related to Kinar, when it was mentioned several times throughout the comic, even just a few pages ago when Mordin told her she could have him back.

Second, How have people NOT figured out that Kinar ISN'T a Death Knight just cause of glowing eyes?

Third, given whats going on, why would anyone assume they AREN'T fighting? Based on Kinar's personality, and what Mordin's been doing up until now, its safe to assume that they would have eventually butted heads, and it would have been pretty messy.

My rants aside, i'm betting Mordin wasn't predicting his wife, who was originally clumsy and (no offense) kinda dumb when it came to magic, would suddenly become THAT powerful. Cause usually, Feral Druids are pretty limited on whatever else they use, because a lot of their focus has to be on control.

So yeah...Way to dig your own grave there, pal. Nice knowing ya!

Also, just a last bit? I noticed someone making a comment about Moonwells. That's an ELF thing, not a druid in general thing. Worgen don't need Moonwells.

So, assuming anyone else has actually managed to read the behemoth known as Worm by Wildbow;
I can't be the only one seeing this playing out like a Pseudo-Endbringer fight. Lots of flashy colours and explosions with the occasional disintegration and perhaps a few tearing apart sessions.
It's already turning into an epic worthy of comment section spam. :D

Amo, I'm still assuming the next comic is gonna be your brainchild as has been said before but I kinda wanna know what time it's in and if we'll be seeing a ton of combat scenes. More specifically, I'd really like to see some sort of modern or futuristic combat in your style. I do like them futuristic combat feels. :D

As an addition to that, I shall ask a question to everyone: Would the Druids Collective or would the Druids Collective not like a mix between futuristic tech and magic. Curious questions make me curiously curious. :)
(Not trying to force a vote or a demand or whatever, just curious considering where about 90% of us came from.)

The comic after Druids will not be futristic, and will be a fantasy setting. Though such baddasery with magic will be a rare thing.

I honestly love working with armor and swords, but machinery is where I have a lot of trouble.. I dont have fun drawing it, and the setting is not one of my favorites... I was raised on fantasy games, like Zelda, Final Fantasy (yes I know they have machines in that too, but they mostly have swords and thats what I like), and other such games..

The next comic is also a collaboration between my husband and I. He is working on the world aspects, the rules and the like, and I am doing somewhat similar to what I am doing here.. Taking a setting and fitting characters into it.

And I know people get scared when they hear that sorta thing, when a couple works on a comic usually that couple breaks up and then you dont get that comic anymore.. But fear not.. I have been with my husband for well over ten years, we arent going to implode to the point where the next work will just end abruptly.
Dargon 23rd Aug 2016, 10:23 AM edit delete reply

Sabre, I have to agree with Amocin on Most of this.....As much as I like syfi and Futuristic type stuff, I have an Even Deeper love for thing's from the past..mostly Med-Evil type thing's like Swords, Axe's and Armor.
There's just something about sword play that just doesn't resonant the same as gun play. Light sabre's are all well and good.....but still just not the same. :p
It is a Very good question though all the same! :)
BloodshedSabre 23rd Aug 2016, 6:23 PM edit delete reply
BloodshedSabre
Amo and Dargon.
This is the reason I asked, seeing how the answers would play.
WoW is a huge game that takes a lot of dedication to 'finish'. Ergo, the odds of me getting a high response of 'yes' were clearly in the minority.
I was simply curious to see how people would respond. Insightful about the Druids Collective.
I gotta say, Light Sabers are awesome but are just a little too deadly to actually be entertaining. "Harharhar, I'll cut your leg off and your screwed indefinitely because borderline plasma!!"
I agree, there's just something about sword play that makes it really epic.

Bloodshedsabre, please dont think that I took any offense to the question, or that I discourage discussion on the topic. I think there are people on both sides of the fence for this one.

Personally I think my husband prefers the sci-fi stuff, but me, I dont have fun with it.. Im the kind of person who looks at areas being developed and go "Where are the birds going to live?!" So I kinda prefer the past just as much for swords and armor as I do for nature. When I think Sci-Fi, i think big cities and space ships, and just metal... everywhere..
Mikotaj Fenris 22nd Aug 2016, 1:16 PM edit delete reply
So it says in Kinar's description scars from battles. Now, the only battle or engagements we know of thus far she's been in, are the Gilneas invasion, quests, and training. So, one must wonder, do the rest come from heated arguments between Spouses?
Rembrant 22nd Aug 2016, 1:50 PM edit delete reply
The way Ghath talks about it, it sounds like these two have fought each other before, which makes me wonder how and when and why. Also interesting that we got death knights who stick to their previous lives such as Amo and Ghath and others who just change completely like Mordin did.
Mortvent 22nd Aug 2016, 5:35 PM edit delete reply
Something about his pose and expression in the last panel makes me think he wasn't expecting her to be able to shift the nightmare back to the dream... more a look of okay this might be a problem, but I got this (he thinks)
Aetheos 22nd Aug 2016, 6:38 PM edit delete reply
On a separate note, I was wondering when druids is finished would it be made into a full mini-series of comics or a big comicbook perhaps like the first few pages were?
Amocin 22nd Aug 2016, 6:40 PM edit delete reply

When its done we will make one large book with all pages, and perhaps also all donation pics included in the book as well. Dunno yet, but we do know we want it as one book and not several.

I dont know when the book will be made, but we will announce it here and on Patreon for those who would want to get a copy. I dont want to make a waiting list, it might get lost or I might forget between that time and now.

Hell hath no fury like a woman who is a werewolf capable of turning into an angry lion standing in the magical realm that is the actual source of her own power and dude you made bad decisions just start running and don't stop.

Kinair going to do serious damage to Mordin in her feline form, can't wait till next Monday! He's a bad parent figure anyway leaving his boy in a confused state of unfathomable rage & confusion being feral or rabid.

I'm not sure I wanna ask this. And I'm not sure I wanna hear the answer. So iv been following this comic quietly for a looooong time. and I just love the characters and story, but, as we all know, every thing must have an end.... So, my question is, have you planned the end? Are we near or far? How much more gloriously brilliant comic do we have to look forward to before we say goodbye this ever expanding world of wonder?
Amocin 23rd Aug 2016, 1:29 AM edit delete reply
Amocin
Yes, the end is planned.. But I think at this point I dont want to say when.. It kills suspense. There is quite a bit left though, so no worries.

Love the comic, only thing that bothers me about this page are the claws. They look tacked on =/ and I think bear claws have a bit more curl to them too.

I have edited the page, hopefully that fixes the problem. I should have looked at more refs for that, so thank you for pointing it out.

Phoenix AJ 23rd Aug 2016, 7:42 AM edit delete reply
I'm REALLY excited to see this fight!!

First panel kind of shocks me though: I know you won't change the comic itself just for someone's opinion (even though I adored how you did the fan thing on Serid being worgen/not worgen), and I hope you don't take my saying to heart...

Truth is, I kind of feel Kinar's regretting her decision on fighting Mordin. She almost looks apologetic. What expression did you mean to imprint on her and readers? She'd rather not fight at all?

I would've gone for a more angered or savage look, more like the one you showed in the last panel... But that's just personal preference.

Again, I hope my opinion doesn't cross you, Amo, nor do I mean any disrespect. It's, as always, a great comic with great art and fantastic characters! I keep coming back for more.
Amocin 23rd Aug 2016, 9:34 AM edit delete reply
Amocin
I originally sketched the first panel with her in the same kinda expression as the last panel.. However I changed it because of how conflicted she would feel over this situation. She will have a lot of back and forths in emotion on this subject because she will be torn between wanting Denor back, or holding onto hope that there is still a piece of him there... and then seeing the monster he has become.. and having to deal with that.

So she is in 'fight mode' but a part of her is also mourning his loss all over again.
