''Netherwing - The Movie [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKkxQ78oIEg Part 1]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNvj5nSwFbk Part 2]]'' by Stormscape.
* Recommended by EphemeralNight
* ''Synopsis'': A gorgeously machinimated dramatization of the World of Warcraft questline that earns players the Netherdrake mount. The Scryer and Aldor factions send operatives undercover with the Dragonmaw Orc operation on Netherwing Ledge with the aid of the Nether Dragon Mordenai and other parties with the ultimate goal of bringing down the encampment from within and freeing the young netherdrakes from slavery.
* ''Comments'': ''Netherwing - The Movie'' holds the honor of having won 2nd prize in a Warcraftmovies.com contest in late 2007. The machinima takes several creative liberties with the plot of the questline, partially to smooth out what would have been boring sections and partially to fit the story into the 15 minute limit imposed by the above mentioned contest. It's low point is most certainly its voice acting, which due to time constraints the creator was forced to do himself, and he admits readily that he is not a very good actor. High points include its superb pacing and nearly flawless technical execution.

''[[http://www.warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=7558 Zinwrath]]'' by Myndflame.
* Recommended by {{Tacitus}}
* ''Synopsis'': In this critically-acclaimed [=WoW=] {{machinima}}, Zinwrath, one of the most legendary warlocks ever (at least in his own mind), pays too much for a bronze tube, is asked to join a hyperactive gnome's guild, recounts his grudge with Orcish trickster Abraham Lincoln, and screws up a summoning.
* ''Comments'': Notable for its...NotableOriginalMusic, "M.C. Raiders," and the origin of the "Arcanite Reaper, hooooooo!" meme.

''[[http://www.warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=17327 Illegal Danish: Super Snacks]]'' by Myndflame.
* Recommended by {{Tacitus}}
* ''Synopsis'': A sequel of sorts to "Zinwrath", this machinima follows the Illegal Danish guild as they protect the titular artifact from a diabolical undead alchemist, while investigating whatever's been screwing up teleports and summonings. A cross-dressing paladin winds up in Orgrimmar and crashes a wicked sweet party at Club Thrall.
* ''Comments'': Very, ''very'' high production quality, particularly a fight against a HumongousMecha and an extravagant dance sequence at the end. Features the full version of "M.C. Raiders" over the credits.

''The Grind'' by Oblivious Films
* Recommended by {{Tacitus}}
* ''Synopsis'': Another [=WoW=]-based {{machinima}}. In [[http://www.warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=37365 Episode 1]], an Alliance guild tries to figure out why they're losing to Onyxia, a GuyInRealLife suffers a mental breakdown after being hit on one too many times, and a gnome rogue goes on a peyote trip. In [[http://www.warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=39811 Episode 2]] they turn to the Horde to advice, while the gnome rogue tries to escape from Orgrimmar sans equipment...or clothing.
* ''Comments'': Since the [[http://www.warcraftmovies.com/movieview.php?id=44398 Halloween Special]] it doesn't look like these guys have made any new films, making this sadly a DeadFic.
* ''Comments'': Never fear! Episode 3 was released...a while ago actually. I'm surprised no one has updated it.

''Machinima/TalesOfThePast'' by Martin Falch
* Recommended by {{Ironeye}}
* ''Synopsis'': An old dwarf tells the tale of Eden Aurorae, an Alliance guild that is blackmailed into starting a war with the Horde. However, it seems that the Lich King might be behind everything after all. By the third (and final) part, canon characters start showing up, including Jaina, Thrall, and other fan favorites.
* ''Comments'': Though the first installment of the series isn't anything special, the second was good for its time, and the third is quite possibly one of the best full-length dramatic Warcraft machinma out there. Be aware that as the series goes on, it increasingly relies on RuleOfCool and {{Tear Jerker}}s. Also, the series was completed before the release of ''Wrath of the Lich King'', so the Arthas model and the Ashbringer story are very much non-canonical (not that the rest of the series places a particularly heavy emphasis on canon).

* ''Comments'': Quite easily the best WoW machinma to date. You have to see to believe.
** That's no machinima! That's a spacesta--ordinary 3d animation.

* Recommended by {{Pimpdaddy}}
* ''Synopsis'': A screenshot webcomic detailing the adventure of a dopey Tauren ManChild as he strives to become a champion of the horde, along with his priestess Troll girlfriend, and his slightly evil best friend Quatermass.
* ''Comments'': Incredibly silly at times, incredibly emotional other times. It's a small classic among warcraft fans in the horde ranks.

brainwashing? Completed, with a sequel in ''Full Circle.''
* ''Comments:'' An excellent piece of writing, with slow cast builds, believable heroes and villains, as well as an accurate depiction of how people might react to shocking news or being told/realizing something that goes against what they believe in.

* ''Comments'': This is set between the events at the end of WarcraftIII and the beginning of WoW canon. There are three further stories in this series with some gradually-building fanon for a group of red orcs from Draanor. Please bear in mind when reading that the ridiculously huge canon of WoW did not yet exist when these were written. Notwithstanding that, I've heard surprisingly few complaints, possibly because the fics are mostly about groups of OCs rather than game canon characters. All of these have some humor emphasis, although the one cited here is probably the strongest in that area.
