* The understated introduction of the alterist's {{Transsexual}} status was a minor one for the strip as a whole. The world needs more portrayals of trans people of all varieties whose gender status is not their biggest defining characteristic. She's not a major character, but still.

* Early on, Dominic is facing a powerful sorceress who has cursed him to have fish fall on his head whenever he smokes. Attempting to cure himself, he sneaks into her castle and discovers her plan to make her daughter commit suicide in order to receive compensation from a visiting knight. She gives a speech basically telling him that he can't stop her, at which point Dominic takes a puff on his pipe, catches his ImprovisedWeapon before it lands on his head, and smacks her out WITH A FISH. Simple but oh so satisfying. A SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}}, as well.
* Greg Deegan, at the end of the Battle For Barthis story arc/fund raising concert. When he declares that nothing could make him happier given how well the concert went, his nurse-turned-newly-appointed-mayor of a girlfriend strips down before him, intent on giving him a "proper reward" for his efforts. The last panel of said strip is simply his hand thrust into the air, giving The Horns.

If this is the first time you're reading this arc, read it through to the most recent strip. Wait for the revelations to sink in, and then read the whole arc a second time for the full effect. What's really impressive is that this necromancer achieves a series of [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Awesome Moments]] ''without getting involved in any fights or killing anybody or even using any necromancy whatsoever''.

* The final arc has ''so'' many, but the highlights have to be:
** ''Quilt'' of all people killing the Infernomancer (albeit with Rilian's help), with the end result of him being banished to Hell, powerless, and ending up at Karnak's feet.
** Jacob learning the true nature of the Blight and bringing balance to it, thus saving Milov, Jayden, Snowsong, and everyone else who survived the destruction of Aberthast Cathedral. Even [[SeenItAll Rilian]] was impressed.
** Luna using the dragon's magic to destroy the Blight-bomb.
** Miranda tricking [[spoiler:the king]] with her illusion, allowing Donovan to stab him InTheBack, followed by Stunt (in {{Revenge}} for Bumper) delivering an OffWithHisHead. (And then when they're fleeing the Sanctum, impaling said detached BodyHorror head by [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throwing the sword at it]].)
** Dominic exploding the Beast by throwing his mindbreak into the Lost Treasure of Luana [[JustEatTheMacGuffin while it's in its mouth]].
