The Queue: How to train your dragon

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!

So I’m a dragon now. Well, my Priest is anyway, after finishing the Tarecgosa staff chain. I was slightly bummed that dragon form was not added as a mount for my Priest — you have to use the staff — but I put together a macro that will take care of things quite nicely, as long as the staff is in my bags. …I’m keeping the staff in my bags forever, because that was a really cool quest chain, guys. If you have a caster that hasn’t done the quest, I recommend giving it a shot. It’s a lot of fun!

You know what else is fun? Answering your questions!


Q4tQ : Hey….When we lvl the new allied races from 20 to 120??, will we also get some race quests a la the class quests while we lvl them?

We actually don’t have any information on that at all yet. All we know is that in order to unlock the Allied Races, we’ll have to do some things to make that process happen. We won’t be doing that on an Allied Race character, we’ll be doing that on our mains. I would think that there’d be some kind of introductory something for the Allied Race once we roll one, but given that the races start at level 20, I don’t know how involved something like that would be. And since the leveling experience was just revamped a bit so we can pick and choose where we level, I don’t expect to see any racial-specific quests. I could be wrong, mind you — we’re just lacking in a lot of information on that front at the moment.


Q4tQ: Do Worgen souls go to the Emerald Dream when they die, like other Azerothian animal souls? (not counting player Worgen)

Here’s the deal: Worgen aren’t really animals. They are people that have been cursed with an affliction that makes them look and act like one. If two Worgen have a kid, that kid isn’t going to be a Worgen — it’s going to be a Human. (Or, if we’re talking the Night Elf variety of Worgen from way back in the days of the War of the Ancients, presumably it’d be a Night Elf kid.) That’s already been established in lore.

Since this is the case, we have every evidence in the world that these people aren’t being turned into animals on a genetic level. It’s just a curse. When they die, presumably their spirits or souls or whatever you want to call them will be as they were before the curse — no animal soul at all.


Question for the Queue How can I destroy my Legion legendary? They are indestructible and have zero vendor price. I just want the inventory space back since can only equip two. Makes playing my main not fun as have so few open bag slots is difficult to even play so have to stop every couple minutes to mount up on yak to vendor junk.

Just for you Domehammer, I logged on and tried my hardest to completely obliterate one of my Legion legendaries, to see if it could be done. It cannot. Unfortunately, you appear to be stuck with said legendary from now until the end of time — or until Blizzard thinks about some kind of solution for the problem that doesn’t involve rotting in your bags forever.

There are a couple of temporary solutions, of course. You can always shove the legendaries in your bank to get them out of your bags and out of your hair. You can also shove them in Void Storage, although you’ll have to pay to put them there. But they’ll remain out of sight and out of mind until you decide you want to go have a look at them again, because looking is all you’ll really be able to do, because they’re going to be largely useless once Battle for Azeroth comes out.

As for me, I’m hoping they’ll make them vendorable at some point after the expansion is over. I really don’t need them taking up space any more than you do.


Q for a lore Queue: What exactly is the deal with the Constellar Designates in the Argus fight? I thought titans left constellars (like Algalon) to watch over world souls in case they need to be reoriginated. Are Argus’ constellars trying to reoriginate us? Or are they corrupted by Sargeras as well?

Constellars are beings that were called upon by Aman’Thul to observe the various worlds that had been ordered by the Pantheon. They’re supposed to watch for any signs of instability, and initiate a fail-safe for re-origination should the world prove unstable. In Algalon’s case, it was Loken’s death that caused him to investigate — Loken had reprogrammed Ulduar’s machinery to designate himself as Prime Designate. His death sent an immediate signal to Algalon that something had gone awry.

I imagine the designates in the Argus encounter aren’t exactly the same thing as Algalon. They seem to be more focused on protecting Argus than anything else. We’re trying to harm Argus, so they’re trying to harm us. This implies they’re something different than an observer like Algalon. We really don’t have any extended information about them, though.


Q4tQ: What will the longer-term role be for DemonHunters, now that their goal for existence has been dealt with? No more Legion=no purpose for DHs

The end of the expansion puts the Demon Hunters in an interesting spot. You’re right — their biggest and sole focus was the eradication of the Burning Legion. It’s been taken care of, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still demons out there to contend with. Illidan — their leader — is gone now. So the question then becomes, where do Demon Hunters go from here? I don’t think it’s a question easily answered, and I think it could potentially end up an interesting story point going forward. It doesn’t necessarily need an immediate answer, because the search for that answer would make an interesting story in and of itself, you know what I mean?


Q4tQ: If you could have any of the sets or outfits in your actual wardrobe, which would it be and why?

Oddly enough, it’s a cloak. I say oddly because I don’t actually show cloaks on my characters in-game at all. But if I were going to wear WoW gear in real life, I’d like a cloak — and my decision at the moment may be influenced by the fact that it’s cold as all get out in Colorado right now, so a warm cloak sounds like a nice idea. Anyway, the cloak in question is the Fearless Gladiator’s Dragonhide Cloak, or one of its many variants. There’s something about the layers, quilting, fuzz and feathers that is just really visually appealing to me. It’s a beautiful model.
