Dark Legacy Comics is a World of Warcraft-based Webcomic, maintained by Arad Keydar. It follows the adventures of Keydar's guild, Dark Legacy (which the author left in-game since the webcomic's creation). The regular cast includes the creator's character, Keydar, a human rogue, Gigzara (or Gigz), an elven priest with a Hair-Trigger Temper, Mijikai and Narya, respectively a gnome warrior and mage, Nyteblade (or Nyte), Narya's human wife, Krom, a rather grumpy human paladin, and Donald, an increasingly stupid representation of the Noob player.The comic usually sticks to the gag-per-day/week format, however there have been two major arcs: The Horace Hypocrisy - which details what would happen if the NPCs started a revolution - and Bill #307a, in which Keydar helps The Society For The Betterment of NPCs pass a bill which outlaws the killing of any NPC. As a result of the guild's favourite game mechanics, Keydar quickly realizes that was a bad idea.
Appeal To Worse Problems: Miji is planning his Holloween costume to scientifically optimize candy intake, but Narya complains that he's ignoring the issue of bill 307a, which bans the killing of NPCs, thus disrupting Azeroth's economy. Miji gets so fed up that he gets King Varian to repeal the bill, so he can get back to GodzillaElmo.
Art Evolution: The first comics were generally made up of simply drawn characters on a plain white background, but since then the art has become a lot better, and nicer to look at. For an example, see one of the updated comics above the original.
Ax-Crazy: Gigz absolutely delights in butchering anything and anyone in her "Gigz's Kitchen" strips.
Cruella to Animals: In this strip, Gigz mentions that the happier something (in this case, a young calf) is before you kill and eat it, the tastier it will be. Narya tries to stop this by intentionally trying to make the calf cry, but Gigz just says that intense grief, while not as tasty as happiness, is still pretty good.
Bald of Awesome: Narya tries to use the Worgen curse to permanently cure his baldness, and turns himself and Miji into Worgen-Gnomes, covered completely in fur, except for the tops of their heads. Miji says "you can't cure awesome".
Comically Missing the Point: Donald's attempt at healing involves bandages, lots and lots of bandages, as opposed to the healing spells that priests have. Nyte and Krom chew him out after they get killed as the bandages are too weak, so Donald promises not to use them again, and switches from linen bandages to wool bandages.
Krom: Jesus. You made him the raid leader for the rest of the night?
Nyte: Nothing in the guild charter prohibits cruel and unusual punishment.
Critical Failure: In World Of Warcraft, engineer-made gadgets have a slim chance of critically malfunctioning whenever they are used. Notably, the Ultrasafe Transporter has a high probability of critical failures, including transporting you a hundred yards in the air over your expected arrival point. This is parodied here.
Narya: Nothing says 'engineering' like a 20% chance to fail.
Cruel Mercy: Gretta did not kill Horace for his trip down the slippery slope during the NPC rebellion and instead chose a more "sophisticated" solution. He was forced to work at the daycare center babysitting the young NPCs. And Donald.
Didn't Think This Through: Keydar becomes a quest giver, thinking it'll make him rich, but Miji points out the quest givers pay the PCs, so how's he supposed to get rich? Worse, the quest is an escort quest through an Orc camp, and if the PC fails, then Keydar gets stuck in the middle of hostile territory. Before Keydar can change his mind, Miji accepts the quest, forcing Keydar to blindly walk into a bunch of Orcs.
Dragon Their Feet: After Miji uses his clone army to take over, the rest of the group kills his clones and takes Miji down. Krom and Nyte wonder if they got all the clones, it turns out they missed #1 and #2, because Donald rescued them thinking they were orphans.
Eat the Dog: When killing NPCs becomes illegal, the player characters are eventually forced to come up with alternate sources of meat... such as their (or other people's) mounts, which are not classified as NPCs. Their high cost keeps them from being a reliable source of food, though.
Hair Today Gone Tomorrow: Poor Narya. On two occasions he was de-aged with water from the Fountain of Youth, the first time it showed him with more hair on his head, but still bald on the top. On the second time, he intends to drink himself to his teenage years before he lost any hair, and he still had male pattern baldness. Summarized nicely here.
Hypocritical Humor: When Narya builds another rocket to fly to space, he intends to pay someone to test it for him. Krom says no one is going to put throw themselves into certain death for monetary gain; Nerya then calls him out because he raids.
Narya: So how many times did you wipe in last night's raid again?
If You Die I Call Your Stuff: The closest thing to true death for a PC is to quit the game, so when one of Keydar's friends is about to unsubscribe, he acts really nice to her; when she says she already gave away her gold, then he moves onto someone else who's about to quit.
I'm a Humanitarian: Gigz is a night elf. Most of her recipes involve cooking druids, which are usually other night elves, or feeding gnomes to Miji, who's a gnome. This started off as a joke and has slowly gotten more frightening over time.
Loophole Abuse: Bill 307a prohibited PCs from harming NPCs, but said nothing about NPCs hurting other NPCs, so Krom pretended to be Edwin VanCleef so he could taunt Horace.
Man, I Feel Like a Woman : Mijikai finds a bag of potions and tries some, which cause him to turn into various things: a skeleton, a pirate, a furbolg, a trogg, and a female Blood Elf. He locks himself in his house for days.
Meaningful Name: Mijikai means 'short' in Japanese (though not used in the context of size).
Meet Your Early Installment Weirdness: Miji and Narya end up in five years in the past thanks to a time machine, where they are puzzled by a featureless white space for a background as well as their own Super-Deformed selves from the comic's beginning. And because just meeting his early installment weirness apparently isn't quite Mind Srewy enough, Miji decides to Adopt His Early Installment Weirdness, taking his past-self back into the present with him, in spite of Narya's protests.
Money, Dear Boy: Arad was away from his computer and couldn't do a comic that week, so instead he posted a bunch of sketches he did, until a sketch of #2 appears and tells him his sketches are boring. He argues that he has a life outside the comic, but #2 asks if "real life" gets ad revenue.
Not Worth Killing: This bandicoon is just a critter, overshadowed by battle pets, who are overshadowed by mobs, who are overshadowed by rare mobs. By the end of the comic the rare was killed since he was a rare, the mob was killed as a quest target, and the battle pet was caught (by Donald), while the bandicoon gets loved for an achievement.
Plotline Death: Discussedhere when Miji and Narya watch a cutscene of an NPC who sacrifices herself to seal an evil portal, telling Gigz that she can't be revived because it's part of the story. Gigz then tries to invoke this on Krom by pretending that his latest death was part of a cutscene.
Narya's changes of hairstyles, which have now become a T-Shirt design.
Science Fantasy: Krom is annoyed by Narya and Miji's attempt to build a computer so they can build a new spaceship, as science fiction doesn't belong in World of Warcraft. Just don't pay any attention to the space goat wanting to roll a shaman.
Straight Gay: Keydar asks out men on two separate occasions. The second time, the guy calls him a fag. See the We Really Do Care entry below for how hilariously badly that ends for him.
Straw Hypocrite: Horace in The Horace Hypocrisy, he launches a crusade to have the NPCs oust the PCs, which leads to him becoming king while the rest of the NPCs suffer because of the economic colapse without the PCs. The status quo is restored when Nyte disguised as Sally Whitemane points out that the real power was with the vendors, quest givers and elite bosses, not the PCs; and he was jealous because he was a lowly quest target who kept getting killed.
Symbol Swearing: This episode has Donald stub his toe and yell "And dollars at star number!" After repeating it a few times, another character tells him he really needs to turn off his &$@*# profanity filter.
Time Travel Romance: Narya used his time machine to get away from everyone who hates him, which forces him to go back several decades. He takes the name Harry, falls in love and starts a family; but it all goes to Hell when his first born is Mijikai.
Too Dumb to Live: Seriously Keydar, how hard is it to resist licking you fingers after coating your knives in poison?
We Really Do Care: A rather... unorthodox example, but when a high level warrior Keydar admired broke his heart, the rest of the group made him very sorry for it. There's something twistedly cathartic about seeing a group of Heroic Sociopaths who are normally hyper-antagonistic toward one another come together like that.
Wham Episode: A minor one but Donald is a priest, not a warrior.
Who's Laughing Now?: When the guild discovers the Fountain of Youth, they all get turned into small children, save Narya who ended up as middle-aged, and then uses decurse to restore Mijikai. When the others ask to be changed back, Narya refuses, laughing that the two gnomes are now the tallest members of the group and want revenge.
