First panel, he didn't like what he saw on WoW.
Second panel he saw a charr on GW2 and thought it was a mount.
Third panel he created one and was like "THIS IS AWESOME".

the comic isn't confusing at all
he hasn't jumped from WoW to guild wars without something notifying the reader that they are referring to a different game for the last two panels than they were for the first
that strip is about the changes in WoW since the artist had last played it
it has been exaggerated for comic effect

Second panel, i think it was more like him seeing a player using one of the mounts you can turn into.

He was looking at a charr, character on the third panel. They do walk around like mounts.

well if they didn't exaggerate anything then they just got some details wrong

but to suggest that the comic had a sudden and unacknowledged shift in focus just because the thing in the last panel looks slightly more like something from guild wars than from WoW is ridiculous and pedantic

It's about WoW, it says so in the very first panel. Penny Arcade is very good about noting if they are shifting to a different game or location that isn't the previously mention game or Tycho and Gabe talking.

then, as i said before, this is simply either a mistake on the part of the artist or an exaggeration for comic effect

penny arcade wouldn't switch the focus of the comic from one game to another without informing the audience

you are just being finicky

It's about WoW, stop being such a fucking pedant.

If you don't believe me, here's the fucking blogpost for the comic.
