In the comic panel shown on this page, he appears to be a chromatic drake rather than a black one. Which one is canon? Inv misc orb 04.pngXavius, the Satyr Lord 10:38, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

It's just the lighter color palette that the comic used. He's definitely a black. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 10:40, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Look at the "Kalarancomic" image again, Zeratul. That's a distinctly purple hue, identical to the one found on chromatics. He doesn't have the usual cyan highlights, but that's not a black dragon. Inv misc orb 04.pngXavius, the Satyr Lord 20:07, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
I've got the comic itself. He's black. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk) 20:13, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
If that is the case, the image needs to be reuploaded or replaced with a more accurate one. Inv misc orb 04.pngXavius, the Satyr Lord 14:22, December 10, 2009 (UTC)
The image in the comic itself is exactly like the one you see there. It's not a matter of bad image quality, or of a retcon of kalaran's nature, it's simply a case of artistic stylization. Jet black doesn't show up very well in print. Even in Wow, black dragons are hardly black.Warthok Talk Contribs 16:36, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Do you read comics or do you usually look pictures only? :P In the previous page after backstabbing the human form of Kalaran Vareesa says: "A black dragon!" Thus what is he? ;) --N'Nanz (talk) 16:53, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

I have not read the comic in question, no (even though I wouldn't mind getting my hands on it). I am simply speaking of what the picture shows, which is a dragon of purplish color. If it is indeed stated in the comic that he is a black, then I'll simply have to assume it was a very odd coloring mistake. If they had wanted to color it black, there are many less confusing shades. The one on Kalaran's claws, for example. Inv misc orb 04.pngXavius, the Satyr Lord 22:03, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

Not even Onyxia and her brood is black in the comics (in truth nor in WoW). Thus Warthok hypothesis is truely plausible. --N'Nanz (talk) 22:26, December 11, 2009 (UTC)
