The Queue: Headcanon

So I recently leveled my 10th level 100 thanks to invasions (five Warriors – Human, Worgen, two Draenei and a Night Elf plus two Demon Hunters, a Hunter, a Shaman and a Paladin) and when I got the most recent Warrior to Stormwind I found myself constructing a story for her in my head. She’s a Night Elf, a traditionalist who thinks a man’s place is sleeping in a barrow den somewhere talking to trees. She absolutely thinks she should be running the whole war against the Legion and she’s not very deferential to her people’s ‘leaders’ at all.

So during the scene in the throne room she was pretty much all you know, Jaina’s got a lot of good arguments. If Jaina starts her own faction, I think she’d be down for a gig as Jaina’s new Night Elf bodyguard.

Yeah, it didn’t work out great for the last one, but that sort of proves her point.

This is the Queue. Let’s chat.

The Queue: I refuse to answer questions that are about Karazhan

You want a Queue that’s excited about Karazhan? Yesterday’s Queue is for you. But I’m afraid I’m just not all that excited about it.

Look, I ran that raid over and over and over again for the entirety of TBC. I ran it when it was the guild-killer. I ran it when they introduced Badges to raids and it was the most efficient way to gear up your newest raid members. I ran it when people wanted the mount. I ran it and I ran it and now? Now I just don’t care.

Sorry. I know y’all love Karazhan. I don’t want to take that away from you. It’s a very pretty raid from an art and music perspective.

Breakfast Topic: What other Overwatch characters do you want to see in Heroes? With the launch of Blizzard’s new first person shooter in May, expect a flood of Overwatch toons to come to Heroes of the Storm in the near future. And now that we have the confirmation of Tracer entering the Nexus in April, this leads us to wonder which of the other 20 announced playable Overwatch...

Heroes balance changes bring nerfs to Kael’thas and more Another big set of balance changes is coming to Heroes of the Storm, and they’re almost all nerfs. Basic attack damage is being reduced on several characters (Jaina, Kael’thas, Thrall) and talents have been tweaked to encourage build diversity (Falstad, Nova, Diablo, Rehgar) and reduce win rates for top heroes (Thrall). Kael’thas is hit hardest by...

The Queue: Breaking War

I’m not entirely sure how one breaks war with a gigantic sword. I’m pretty sure gigantic swords are how one fights a war. Well, at least until you have laser guided smart bombs or whatever. But the point stands.

This is the Queue. We take your questions and do our best to give you answers. I’m listening to Outro by M83, I admit I first heard it in the Paragon trailer from Epic Games.


Heroes of the Storm poke
Rexxar’s Heroes of the Storm poke dialogues are comedy gold I’m sorry but I will never not laugh when Rexxar says I’m on the hunt, I’m after you. Youtuber Average Adam, known for compiling the various Heroes of the Storm poke dialogues in videos, has put up a new video just for Rexxar. And man, it’s packed with in-jokes and references to WoW, Hearthstone and beyond. Plus you...

Laura Bailey talks about playing Jaina Proudmoore You may or may not know Laura Bailey, but she’s the voice actress behind Jaina Proudmoore in World of Warcraft. She’s also been working in the industry since 2002’s Bloodrayne (in which she voiced the character of Rayne) and in darn near everything since. This interview at The Escapist gives you an idea of just how big...

The Queue: Like playing a walking disco

If there’s anything more annoying than having all of your proc based abilities light up after the thing you are fighting dies, I don’t know what it is.

Hey guys. It’s Queue time. Let’s Queue it up.

Serephita brings Jaina to life in cosplay BlizzCon may seem like it’s still far away, but it’s not that far away if you’re a cosplayer wanting to join the Blizzard-centric costume contest of the season or just dress for the occasion. To be ready for that November deadline, BlizzCon cosplayers are already hard at work planning and designing their projects for the...
