Sylvanas

What’s your biggest surprise moment in Legion? What’s been your biggest surprise moment in Legion so far? Was it the Broken Shore, when Varian, Vol’jin and Tirion all died? Was it Sylvanas becoming Warchief? Or was it the culmination of the Stormheim storyline? Maybe it was in Val’sharah, when a certain former Dragon Aspect met her end? Legion has had quite a few...

Hey, guys.

What, these? They were dead when I got here, really.

It’s the Queue. Let’s talk Blizzard.


New WoW short story Dark Mirror provides insight into Nathanos and Sylvanas A new World of Warcraft short story has just been released, featuring everyone’s favorite Dark Lady and her steadfast loyal Champion. In Dark Mirror, Nathanos Blightcaller recounts memories of his life before and after the Scourge invasion, and memories of Ranger-General Sylvanas Windrunner, while awaiting a mysterious Val’kyr ritual to make him stronger at the...

Do you have an NPC you like because they’re scary? After doing Suramar for a while and getting Good Suramaritan done, I found myself working on the further storyline quests and I realized something. The more ridiculously aggressive Tyrande Whisperwind becomes, the more I like her. I mean, I wouldn’t want to hang around with her. She’d possibly kill me for some stupid thing I...

Know Your Lore: Rise of the Banshee Queen What do you do when you’ve lost everything? It’s a question Sylvanas Windrunner likely asks herself every single day. At first, the answer was easy: Exact vengeance upon the Lich King. In Wrath of the Lich King, Sylvanas accomplished exactly that, and later returned to Icecrown to find another Lich King sitting on the Frozen...




Know Your Lore: Recommended reading for Legion The Warcraft universe and its lore is pretty vast and expansive. Let’s face it, we’re looking at twenty years worth of games and written lore here, which is a crazy amount for any one person to process. There’s also been a lot of novels, graphic novels, short stories and comics released over the years as...

The Queue: With Swords

For some reason, whenever I transmog on my Demon Hunter, I just transmog the warglaives to swords. I don’t know why I do this. Maybe it’s because I honestly don’t like the model For the warglaives so far and I’ll be happier once I’m using my Artifact glaives. But somehow, I don’t think so. It’s weird because I like the Warglaives of Azzinoth just fine, but none of the other warglaive models have done it for me. And I have like twelve pages of swords to xmog to, so it works out.

This is the Queue. Let’s talk about Blizzard.

There will be spoilers for the Broken Shore and Legion in this Queue.




Know Your Lore: The Horde at the beginning of World of Warcraft When last I wrote a KYL for you all, I talked about the state of affairs on Azeroth at the start of World of Warcraft. Four years had passed since the mortal races banded together to stop the Burning Legion atop Mount Hyjal. We saw how the Alliance formed, how each race — Humans, Night...

Breakfast Topic: World at war Imagine: The Horde and Alliance have fallen apart. Azeroth breaks down into a free-for-all. Dwarves are fighting Gnomes. Orcs are brawling with the Tauren. Night Elves versus Gilneans. It’s a bloodbath out there. Who do you think comes out on top? Which faction leader becomes ruler of the world?

Latest Heroes of the Storm patch brings big hero changes The latest Heroes of the Storm patch has just gone live on the PTR, and the patch notes are packed with updates — some of which we expected and some of which we didn’t.

You need to see the new Sugar Plum Sylvanas skin right now We mean it: you really haven’t lived until you’ve seen Heroes of the Storm’s Sugar Plum Sylvanas in all her glory. Sure, it’s not the only thing new in Heroes today — we have a new patch and a new weekly rotation on the agenda, too — but how can you possibly do anything but...

The Queue: I just woke up

It’s 4 am my time as I write this, I’m insanely tired.

Do you have a question for The Queue? The comments await you with a slavering maw. Like a puppy!


Papercraft Sylvanas is as impressive (and threatening) as she is in-game We initially ran into papercrafter Eduardo — whom you can find on Twitter, DeviantArt, and YouTube —  when he posted a stunning papercraft Sylvanas. Though he’s just starting to do Blizzard-themed papercrafts, he’s been making paper creations from other media for years — and, since we spoke to him, he’s added an equally impressive papercraft...

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.
