AFR #149 – Where everyone has gone before

<<First comic <Previous comic | Next comic> Latest comics>>

As other people have noted, Outland is now the oldest content in the game, which makes it an odd experience to go back there for those of us who remember when it was new and exciting.  One of my alts just started in Outland and there’s a strange nostalgia to going back to a world where you spend your questing time praying to the RNG gods that the next bird you kill will actually have that last beak you need to get.  I hope that Outland someday gets the Cataclysm treatment and gets revamped in line with the new design philosophies, since it’s an interesting place with a lot of potential.

(For anyone who’s wondering: yes, Gord’s line is actual Chinese; no, it doesn’t mean anything or make any sense.)


  1. It means Explosive Elephant. Yes it doesn’t make any sense. Still funny though.

    • The line “Cameras! We need cameras!” in V for Vendetta was subtitled as “Elephant machine! Elephant machine!” on the Chinese bootleg DVD a friend of mine acquired.

      Random trivia for ya. 😉
