    Post Flintlocke's Guide to Azeroth Backup

    So as some may be aware, Gamespy is going down. And since it's the home to the one and only Flintlocke Comics, I figured just to be on the secure side, I'd go and back the entire thing up. Call me crazy if you will. But anyways, here is the entire thing for those who wanna have it without spending 3 hours getting them all!

    Flintlocke's Guide to Azeroth as well as Flintlocke Vs The Horde were made between 2004 and 2009 by Dave 'Fargo' Kosak over on Gamespy.
    Dave is probably known by most of you as Blizzard's current Lead-Quest Designer.

    Download Link (Now without Login required). Have fun!

    So the site is going to be going down? Here I was hoping the site would stay but there'd be no new posts.

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    It's unlikely that the website stays up when the writers gets moved to IGN or fired. It's going to be shut down in quite a while, but I guess it's gonna be around for a little longer so people can read about it.

    I believe 1up, UGO, and Gamespy are all on the chopping block.

    Yep.

    I wonder what happens to the Gamespy Service? It's actually necessary for a few old games.

    I might go and make a video of the comics. With maybe some music and sound effects from WoW when I have the time.

    Thanks a lot for this. The first thing I did when I saw that the site was going down was to start saving the pictures, but I had the brilliant idea to google it first. The only problem with your archive is that the frames are not in order, so this will take some sorting.

    Yeah, there also may be a few files missing by accident. Saving 2400+ images is after all dreary work (instantly post here if notice that please! We do not want this wasted). I am in the process of sorting. You can sort them partially by date, I think. They are except for a few in the correct order if you do that.

    Truly an amazing thought that the guy responsible for the epic storylines in WoW was once responsible for the most epic webcomic about WoW.

    .... Thank the Light he was put in charge so this never again happens.

    He took over for Alex Afrasiabi, better known as "The Great Fras Siabi" from Stratholme around mid WotLK as far as I know ;P

    2400+ Pictures which make up ~29 Chapters of Flintlocke's Guide and ~14 of Vs The Horde - the number of comics per episode is quite different for each.

    This used to be the only reason I would visit GameSpy and now it sits safely on my PC. *hugs PC*

    Honestly Cata had great quests, loved the storylines in the old world and the new zones. Cata fell flat in the storyline after you hit 85.
