No real point to this week’s comic, just a silly idea that popped into my head and made me giggle.

I get what Blizzard was going for this expansion, but it’s really hard to have a philosophical meditation on the tragic consequences of war and aggression in a game that is entirely based around killing things and taking their stuff. They did their best to make us feel awful in Jade Forest, with everything from the Shado-Pan showing up to ninja-scold us for releasing the Sha, to Lorewalker Cho’s after school special about how Violence is Not the Answer, to Yu’lon being not angry with us after the destruction of the jade statue, just very very disappointed. After going through all of that, it’s a little shocking to move on into later zones and have Pandaren tell you: “See those guys over there? Yeah, go punch them in the face until they pop open like pinatas.”

I haven’t actually done any pet battling so far. I know people who have done a lot of it and enjoy it, but it just doesn’t interest me. One thing I do love about the new pet system, though, is the ability to name your pets. My priest’s silver tabby is now named Minttu, my rogue’s snowshoe rabbit is named Hopsy, and my mage’s feline familiar is Grimalkin. And sometimes, just for variety, I’ll pull out my Argent squire, Bob. My favorite, though, is a friend’s bombay cat: Sapphire.
