The Queue: Just for you

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!

One of these boxes is just for you. Well…actually, quite a lot of them are for you. You can log in and open them once you’re done with whatever celebrations you happen to be celebrating today. Happy Winter Veil, everyone!


I have a question: How do you specifically go about picking a “main”?

I don’t know about anyone else, but for me, a “main” is just something that naturally evolved from whatever character I happened to like playing the most. In classic, it ended up being a Forsaken Shadow Priest (because let’s face it, they were pretty OP and fun). In Burning Crusade, it ended up being a Rogue — and I played that Rogue nonstop all the way through Warlords.

In Legion, I’ve been actually flitting between several different characters — I’ve got the Rogue, plus a Hunter, Shaman, and Druid at level 110 now. Next on the list is the Forsaken Shadow Priest, because I don’t like leaving her behind. I don’t really do heavy raiding at all anymore, so I don’t feel a need to focus getting a single character all beefed up and in the best gear. I’m just having fun playing…well, everyone!


Question for a new Overwatch Q: About Solider 76, one of his lines mentions he was pumped full of something, are we to assume this is a super serum ala Capitan America? Captain 76?

I was always under the impression that he was just a well trained tactician with a kick awesome tactical visor.

Both Jack Morrison and Gabriel Reyes were part of a soldier enhancement program in the military before they were ever a part of Overwatch. Reyes was a senior officer, but he and Morrison were pretty good friends, and they decided to join Overwatch together. But that soldier enhancement program was classified — it was widely acknowledged, people knew about it, and of course they saw the results. Perfect soldiers blessed with superhuman speed, agility, strength…however, nobody knew how they got that way. From the sound of things, Jack may not be entirely sure either.


qftq. What do you think the pandarens did to celebrate winter veil before we showed up? Happy Holidays to the whole team.

That’s a good question! We really don’t have any idea — it’s likely they didn’t celebrate it at all. One of my biggest regrets from Mists is that we never really got to see much of the day-to-day culture of the Pandaren. I wanted to see what kind of holidays they celebrated, especially considering they were cut off from the rest of Azeroth. Presumably they had their own series of important events to celebrate every year, but we never got to see them. Mind you, given what we were dealing with in Mists, it’s possible they either didn’t feel much like celebrating, or weren’t exactly super keen on the idea of sharing holidays with a group of outsiders who had just unleashed the Sha on the continent.


Q4tQ: If you could design an alternate appearance for any artifact weapon, what would it look like?

I’d give the Kingslayers an alternate appearance that looked like fist weapons. Or swords. Or something beyond the same boring dagger model that we can’t transmog to any other weapon in our gargantuan wardrobe library. My wardrobe library. …look, I’m just tired of only being able to use the visual equivalent of toothpicks on my Blood Elf Rogue, so I’m being a little selfish here.

Alternatively, give one of the Warrior weapons an updated, high res Ashkandi skin. Because Ashkandi is awesome.


QftQ: Is there some way that a Balance druid can retain caster form? I had thought that the Glyph of Stars had been altered so that it was still Moonkin form but starry.. but I saw a caster form balance druid today (actually fighting)

Good news! Glyph of Stars makes your humanoid form starry, and gets rid of that whole pesky turn into a giant hooting owlbeast thing (until you remove the glyph, anyway). It was one of the first things I picked up for my Druid. I mean…owlbeasts are nice and everything, but I want to actually see the transmog I painstakingly picked out for my caster, you know?

That’s it for today’s Queue — if you have any questions you’d like to see answered, be sure to leave them in the comments below!
