The Queue: Electric cats

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!

Technically these arcane constructs aren’t really cats. But they use something similar to the Tol’vir model, which makes them look like giant electric cats to me. Giant angry electric cats.


What is a storyline that you feel needs to be written more about?

Wrathion’s stuff. His story really started to flesh out at the tail end of Cataclysm during the Rogue legendary quest chain, but it took off in Mists of Pandaria, and it left things on a giant cliffhanger of sorts. We still don’t know what he was doing during Warlords of Draenor, and that’s kind of suspicious to say the least, particularly when he played such a large role in Mists. Given the direct hand we played in actually making his existence possible, I really hope we see his story continue soon.


I’m sure this has been asked before…but we haven’t seen Feng the Accursed (aka boss # 2 in MSV) since MSV, correct?

Nope! Haven’t seen a peep out of him since. Lorewalker Cho seemed pretty convinced that our encounter with his spirit was not going to be the last we’d see of Feng, but it seems he spoke too soon. Or maybe he’ll pop up again at some point in the future, when we least expect it. It’s a little difficult to predict what vengeful spirits are going to do, after all.


Diablo question: is there any benefit to playing story mode during a season?

Not really, no — honestly you’ll get faster XP, gear and gold by just hopping into adventure mode, unless you’re going for achievement runs or something. If you’ve never played through the story before and you’re curious about what’s going on, then you want to play story mode, but there’s no real “benefit” other than seeing that story play out. If you’re just looking for the goodies, go adventure mode.


What’s the point of giving us access to all our specs if we only get two artifacts?

I’m not sure where you heard that one, but from everything we’ve been told there isn’t going to be some kind of limit on how many Artifacts we can obtain. If you want them, all, you’ll be able to get them all — but it’s not an immediate process.


If sargeras was doing the whole fighting the void lords thing, then why are voidwalkers seen with the Burning legion?

I talked about this a bit on either the regular podcast or Lore Watch, but I’ll talk about it here too, because why not? Here’s my theory on the voidwalker thing: We have Warlocks on Azeroth. These Warlocks aren’t necessarily allied with the Burning Legion, they aren’t doing the Legion’s bidding — they’re using the Legion’s own weapons against them. Similar things can be said about Demon Hunters, it’s another case of using the Legion’s skills and weapons to tear it down.

The Burning Legion is set against the void — and I like to think that the Legion’s use of voidwalkers falls under the same lines. It’s the Legion harnessing and using the void’s weapons against it, same as what our Warlocks and Demon Hunters do with fel magic. I don’t know how much truth there is to that theory, but it wasn’t clearly stated in the book, so theories are really all we have at the moment.


any new enemies coming up that we haven’t seen yet? Would love to see vampires

Well we kind of got WoW‘s version of vampires with the Darkfallen in Wrath. So far, I haven’t seen a peep out of them in Legion. The Broken Isles does have a surplus of electric cats, though, and they’re pretty nasty.
