The Queue: Puppies and Burning Crusade hijinx

I have no idea what this is or why my wife and I made it. It’s not even accurate in its own panels! The Human says they found him two panels ago but clearly it’s just one panel ago!

Also, I hope you like pictures of a puppy. You made her sad, you monsters.

The Queue: We meet again, Brewfest

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!

There was a point where I used to really enjoy Brewfest. I’m not sure where that changed exactly — somewhere in the many years of the holiday being available, my interest waned. By the time the holiday rolled around, I already had gear better than what I could get from Direbrew. I had all the various fun drops. Last year I skipped the event entirely — I think I ran Direbrew on one lone alt that needed a gear boost. But then I realized the event has since had toys added to it, toys that I totally missed in last year’s lackluster run.

So I’m here again, in the chilly hills of Dun Morogh — or on some characters, the heated sands of Durotar — and I am ready to race rams again. So many rams.

You know what, let’s answer your questions instead, okay? For now.

The Queue: A puppy for you

Was someone talking about puppy pictures? Yes? No? Either way, it doesn’t matter, because I am breaking out the big guns of puppy pictures with the above pair of six-week-old basset hound puppies. Just try to top that, because you can’t. It just not possible.

But, really, give it a try because everyone loves puppy pictures.

The Queue: I am mice cars!

That’s approximately the same look I had when I thought of the above wordplay. I’m a real cool dude, you guys.

The Queue: Waiting for…




Hey! It’s time for the Queue!

The Queue: I might be Matt, who can say anymore?

Am I a Dakotaraptor? A Tyrannosaur in a Santa hat? Sargeras? Ashkandi?

That one. I’m definitely Ashkandi.

This is the Queue. Let’s chat.

The Queue: I’m definitely Anne

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!

You know, I was all good with each Class Hall I’d been in so far in Legion. They were unique in their own ways, some larger than others, but they had a cool vibe. Then I visited the Paladin Class Hall while doing a quest on my Priest. …holy heck that place is beautiful. It’s amazing! I don’t feel…robbed, per se, but I am envious. Envious to the point where I’m actually considering leveling my Paladin just so I can go hang out in there. I mean…come on.

Oh that’s right we have questions to answer, don’t we. Let’s get to those.

The Queue: I am not Liz

What a weird Wednesday we’ve wandered into, where one writer is — without warning — whisked away to write wisecracks in response to your whimsical wonderings. We will begin with a question which, as I am wont to do, wrecks this word-warfare with woeful wit.

“What?” you wonder. “Wreck in what way?”

Well, see, the question is about… Heroes of the Storm.

The Queue: I am not Mitch

I mean, I don’t think I am, but reality is all about perspective, and with enough smoke and enough mirrors between writer and Queue, who knows who I am. I guess you’ll just have to live with the mystery.

The Queue: I am not Adam

Surprise! It’s me! I’m filling in for Jovan, who was supposed to fill in for Adam. There are a lot more comments to sift through when you have a full weekend’s worth of ’em, lemme tell you — although fairly close to the same amount of questions, go figure!

Anyhow, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I saw It last night and was very happy with the film. I mean, as happy as one can be when confronted with a killer clown monster thing but still. Worth checking out if you can stand horror films. What did you all do this weekend?

The above image comes courtesy of Gorquen: “Today’s Fanart Friday contribution is inspired by those moments when you find yourself (frequently during holiday events) on public transportation next to a member (or members) of the other faction.
Should I emote at them? If I target them, does that count as a hostile action? Should we just continue to awkwardly ignore one another? Why won’t this tram go faster?”

Though I like Galdwynn’s take on it: “RC and Mitch share a subway car.”

The Queue: Aggramarvating

Life is weird. Last week I was sitting in a chair having needles and lasers shot into my eyes, this week I’m writing the Queue. Every time I get the injections and lasers I’m reminded that my eyesight is a fleeting thing, that eventually I’ll be too blind to write and Queue’s like this (and all of my books) will be just memories of when I could still do it. So I’m a bit wistful today, sitting down to look over your questions, because I know I’ll eventually not be able to anymore.

Still, while I can still see well enough to do it, I might as well do the best I can at it. So here’s the Queue, written by me.

The Queue: Double bubble trouble

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!

I hit 110 on my Forsaken Priest last week. I get the distinct impression that Khadgar isn’t terribly fond of my little undead adventurer. One floating head just wasn’t enough to make sure she wasn’t being shady. Of course she’s Shadow, so technically she’s always shady, but hey we don’t need to tell Khadgar that. Let’s answer your questions instead. I’m sure Khadgar would be much happier with that, right?

The Queue: Someone is going to have to explain this to him

After deciding in yesterday’s Queue comments that Mitch is, in fact, Nick, all he had to say was, “it seems to be related to a Disney movie I have not seen.” Horror! Heresy!

But I can’t be expected to teach the poor kid everything. Someone else is going to have to handle this, because we have questions to answer and they aren’t from Mitch at all—

Aw, crap.

The Queue: Future Mitch, put a title here

…Oh fudge. Way to drop the ball, Past Mitch!

The Queue: Higher level followers, Argus, apps and artifacts

I hope you’re all enjoying your last day of summer by staying inside and helping the Army of the Light.

The Queue: Not all heroes wear shoes

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!

I firmly believe that Thelbus Wimblenod is going to save us all. Without shoes. Because he’s just that kind of hero.

…either that or he’s going to turn out to secretly be a member of the Burning Legion that managed to infiltrate the Vindicaar with his mild-mannered, shoeless gnome disguise. One of those two things. Probably.
