Shamus Plays: WoW #12: Hogger!

Norman's pig vendetta continues. Wait, what do you mean Hogger isn't a pig?

Jack of sucking at all trade lmao. Cant wait for CSI: Westfall

Hogger! The mob the myth the legend.

Hogger survives? Truly he is the greatest of all Gnolls!

Also, robes are manly and full of arcane goodness. Bully on anyone who thinks they're a dress.

Well okay, they might be a dress, but they're a manly dress. Like kilts.

Three or four zones?! YAAAAAY! This means I can expect this series to continue on at least a little while longer! This, along with the news of my classes being canceled today, are great for me to wake up to and then go back to bed with!

Nice one! :D

Great stories. I know the only way the whole role playing thing would work is if you picked warlock but they are just about the least fun class to level up. Particularly at low levels. Anyway keep up the good work!

He's half man, half bear-pig. Anyway, I'm loving the strips and I can't wait for the CSI Spoof. Keep up the good work!

Shamus:
"I don't think they make those sounds to entertain us."

"Well, I appreciate the effort they put into it anyway."

=D

Also, I love how slowly and subtlety Norman is turning to evil... well, actually, tripping somebody you're passing just cause isn't subtle anymore, is it?

Interesting twist on the Hogger quest! That's so wierd.

CSI: Westfall should be good tho!

I think Westfall is by far my favorite and most memorable questing area.

I really like these series...also, I sense a bit of 'Good Omens' lurking behind the scenes.

This is why I play Horde; THEY DON'T IMPRISON HYPER-AGGRESIVE GNOLLS IN THEIR STOCKADES.

Gnolls aren't Pig People... Quillboars are Pig People! Gnolls are Hyena People! Learn the facts!

OT: Nice Episode! I hope the series continues just as strong as it has been doing!

I really liked this episode! And your costant teasing is almost getting me to try WOW. But you won't win! I have a life (still) you know that, don't you!

For those who don't know: The whole thing with Hogger being in the stockades now is the result of Hogger becoming something of a meme. Before this, people were joking about Hogger becoming a level 85 raid boss. Without changing his loot table.

sad thing is....chances are that it would not stop a raid party from attacking him if it happened.

I love this series! :)

Way to go Shamus

But gnolls are hyena people (as opposed to the big people and the horse people and the fish people and the wolf people and the cow people and ...). I would know. I play one.

Anywho, seeing as to which I haven't played and Alliance since Cata came out, I was interested in seeing what would happen to Hogger. Also looks like Norman is really begining to turn a bit hard and cynical there. I will continue reading to find out what happens next...

gonna be interesting to see what ya do with the Rambo quest line in the zone after Westfall X3

I just had a Big Blue Dress flashback!

That was pretty funny.
But what really amazed me was the size of WoW. I mean, i figured it would be big.
But that's just...sick. Overkill. Jesus. I mean...dude.
I really don't have any words left in my vocabulary.

Well, on my server, there has been a couple of 40 level 1 raiding Hogger before cata.

Hey this episode of Shamus Plays was great! Significantly more funny than last weeks one and is really showing how Norman is becoming a more bitter and frustrated person. Gobstab, I feel, is becoming more benevolent and is showing some faint signs of guardianship towards Norman.

Well to be fair this just kind of follows the hilarious detachment of the Stormwind nobility from the common man. Clearly General Marcus could deal with Hogger; what does he care if he rampages about in the stockades? Gives the guards something to do. Builds character and all that.

After all when the Cataclysm struck Azeroth,devastating the lands of his allies the dwarves and bringing misery to his own subjects what did King Varian do?

He made a bunch of additions to his Keep and erected a nice big statue of himself at the front.

So there's a considerable number of future Shamus Plays if we're only now on zone #2 of 3-4. Great!

Also, whenever I hear "Westfall" I think of one of the developers of Archon.

Gnolls are Human-dogs.

don't the horde have a fire pit under there city with snakes cultists demons earth elements and them wired trogg/gnoll type things sounds alot better :)

Dammit Shamus. It's because of you I download the trial!

Now I'm starting to see how people can get hooked.

ya i know what you mean, but at the same time it's almost too bad that he's not going to play through the whole game. i mean, i know this would take 100s if not 1000s of episodes to do, and probably a good few years to write the material, but it's be great to see this story go for a while. It could be I like this one so much is because this is the only game he's done so far that i've actually played, so another series could be just as good.

Brilliant stuff, can't wait for the next installment :)

I'm fairly sure I was being sarcastic ^^

"The second questing zone welcomes careful drivers."

what? i dont understand at all...

Mage backup dancers. Shamus, you kill me. BTW, don't know if you know, but the whole Hogger was quite the shit in the pre-Cataclysm days. A fairly difficult low-level quest. And you actually got to kill him.
