WCR Art Feature: Prestigious

Welcome to the second Art of War piece! Today we have a treat for the Human faithful, since we haven’t received any buffs in recent patches, we need something right? I truly hope that you enjoy the work. I told you all I wanted to give a little bit back to the community that has given me so much enjoyment the best way I know how. Despite some accusations, the work here is not to inflate my ego, or to pawn off mediocre works as masterpieces. I want to share and help the Warcraft community continue to be a leader in PC gaming excellence.

Subject: Priest of the Human Alliance

Time on Piece: about 25+ hours

Time on research: about 8+ hours

Reason: Each unit in the Human army, just as the other races that march the Warcraft battlegrounds, is diverse and powerful in its own right. Though, none, I believe are used so much with as little recognition. The Prestigious Priest is no glorified offensive champion, but perhaps should be among the most praised of units in the army of the Alliance. Indeed, all units are powerfull when fulfilling their niche, but what Human army does not benefit from the quite and consistent power of the Priest?

It is not possible to dispell the life giving blessing upon his fellow units, no Destroyer can drink their holy healing to benefit in the wrecking of more utter chaos. Whether it be mass Mortars, Rifles, or even the mighty and majestic Gryphon Riders, the Elven Priest has a place in the protected backlines of any successful general’s ranks. Through the cleverest of ambushes or full frontal attacks wrought of brute force, rest assured your troops will continue decimating the evils of the world for many days and nights with the life giving Priests at their side.

Name: Prestigious. I wanted the name of the work to honor the legacy of the clerics. They are important to have in any battle. Impressive at times, keeping mere Footmen alive against the brutish cleave of a Grunt’s many-notched axe. They should be recognized and celebrated as a prominent, esteemed, and game influencing entity of the Alliance.

I would like to thank bunny and the WCreplays.com staff for keeping me on for my second feature and for being supportive. It is also important to me to give thanks to all the masses who gave so many kind remarks and constructive criticism on my last piece, I appreciate every one, they keep me motivated. I hope that I have shown some improvement. It is my goal to never let your imaginations down. May blessings rain upon you as heavily as Dalar Dawnweaver’s mighty blizzards! ~Raihn~
