The Queue: Legends of the hidden temple
Welcome back to The Queue, our daily Q&A feature for all of Blizzard’s games! Have a question for the Blizzard Watch staff? Leave it in the comments!
The real history of the Tomb of Sargeras is almost kind of lost in the sea of black and fel green that has mostly consumed the Broken Shore at this point. I mean, the signs indicating it was a Night Elf temple at one point in history are all there, but they get a little washed out. Unlocking flying means that players can get a closer look at the place, and it’s worth it — the design of the former Temple of Elune is pretty amazing, fel green tint or no.
Question for the Queue: During the light’s heart quest when you put the Tears of Elune in light’s heart and shake it all up and then get your mind forcefully shot across the universe and Xe’ra says that from the ashes of the worlds that the Burning Legion destroyed the Army of Light rose. When we go to Argus to help this Army of light do you think it will consist of new alien races for just a few humans and Draenei?
I think it’s going to be a lot of Draenei, and a smattering of other races. I don’t think we’d see any brand-new alien races — they usually save those kinds of reveals for entire expansions — but we might see some old familiar ones. I’d love to see some Arakkoa that somehow escaped Draenor’s destruction and ended up in the Army of Light. Or Ethereals. Or I’d even take more demons that have turned away from the Legion and embraced the Light instead.
Oh and of course there are probably going to be at least a few naaru in the mix, I’m assuming.
QftQ: If you could change one thing in Legion’s story, what would it be? I would have everyone be less “Illidan is the best hero and you all were wrong to kill him” and more “He’s a bastard, and we all hate him, but we need him. If he goes dark side again he’s dead for good though.”
I would’ve left Wrathion in somewhere. I don’t think Highmountain was necessarily the best fit for him — I mean the Ebonhorn reveal in the beta was a little weird and wonky, I understand why they took that out. But I could see him as being a behind-the-scenes manipulator in Suramar. He couldn’t get the Alliance and Horde to unite, but hey, a city chock full of super-powerful spellcasters and a contingent of would-be rebels? That kind of sounds like it would’ve been right up his alley.
QftQ: Do you ever feel obligated to stay with a certain faction? Most of my level 100s/110s are Horde, but I’ve been getting the itch to play Alliance again, but I don’t have the supportive group of Alliance. I have my leatherworker, blacksmith and tailor all on the same Horde server, all in the same guild, which has a ton of useful materials. Do I just give it up, start over for fun?
Not really — but I have a lot of alts alongside my main Horde character. I’ll generally pick one faction or the other to level with first, and then flip to the other side. I leveled with a Horde character first in Warlords, so I leveled an Alliance alt first in Legion. I kind of prefer leveling solo, though, so I don’t mind not having a guild on the alts. It’s just a quieter game — and it’s easier to focus my full attention on the story, which is kind of one of the big reasons I enjoy playing.
Speaking of Rexxar, they really need to update his model to show his age. Cause he at least is in his early 50’s and at latest in 60’s. Never gotten much information about ogre aging but he is a old man if a orc since orcs only live into 70’s usually.
Well that’s the thing — we don’t really have any kind of lifespan guide for Ogres at all. Heck, technically we don’t really have one for Orcs, either. Most of the lifespan information we have is from the World of Warcraft RPG, and information contained in the RPG is no longer canon. I do agree that Rexxar could use an update, though — obviously the Rexxar we encountered in that funky alt-timeline Warlords was younger than the one currently on Azeroth, by a good 30 years. But since he just got a model update for Warlords, I imagine they figured that other characters and creatures should probably take priority on that front.
That Overwatch Mercy fan-film was really good, and well done with the languages. With (almost) everyone being human, and it taking place on Earth (as opposed to a far off, fictional planet), do you think Blizzard will make an Overwatch movie before they make another Warcraft movie?
Honestly, I think Overwatch would make a really good movie — or animated series, or even a TV series. There’s a lot of story we just don’t know yet, and people are pretty fascinated by it. Given the general popularity of the superhero genre right now, I don’t think it’d be a bad idea to give it a shot. I mean if nothing else, do a one-shot movie and see how its received, then move on from there. I don’t know if I’d want to see live-action, though — the cinematics that Blizzard has already put out make me really want to see what their cinematic team could do with a full-on animated film.
