The Queue: Spider-Elf, Spider-Elf, capable of dressing herself

My Night Elf happens to have the entire Zandalar plate from classic (and the Halberd of Smiting model as well) so I dressed up in it for y’all today, minus the shoulders which I hate and which don’t go with the set at all in my humble opinion.  Some of these pieces are the Mists green pieces, but the BP, bracers and belt are all from the original set because I did all those quests back in the day.

I hope Horde players get some text that mentions it if they ground to exalted with the Zandalari while leveling in Battle for Azeroth, at the least. That would be cool.


Q4tRossi (if you haven’t already finished writing tomorrow’s queue):: If you were given the opportunity to write one story/quest line for Zandalari in BfA, what story would you want to tell (I went with them because dinos, but if you have a story in Kul Tiras, go for it)? It doesn’t have to fit into the overarching storyline, it could be a side quest story too

I would write something about Hakkar. Since I haven’t done all of the quests for the Zandalari on the Alpha and not all of the Alpha is open yet and I don’t know if there are secrets yet to be told, I couldn’t tell you what I would write because I assume that if I were writing a storyline for the game they’d fill me in on what other folks were doing. But if possible I’d write a G’huun/Hakkar questline that explores why they’re both called “The Blood God”.


I watched the Q&A today and it sure sounded to me like Watcher confirmed both Mag’har Orcs and Kul Tiras Humans as playable Allied Races in Battle for Azeroth. I was happy that he said the Mag’har Orcs are the ones from Draenor, but am I the only one less that excited for more Humans? I get that it makes sense, we’re going to Kul Tiras and people want different body types for Human characters. But do we really need more playable Humans? We already are Humans, I play WoW to get to be something else.

I get where you’re going with this one, but for me, I love the idea of playable Kul Tiras Humans because they have different models than standard Humans. So far, all the Allied Races have been variations on races we already have — Lightforged Draenei, Void Elves, Nightborne and Highmountain Tauren aren’t exactly huge departures and neither Zandalari Trolls nor Dark Iron Dwarves will be hugely unique.

Adding Mag’har Orcs will let Orc players finally play the uncorrupted Orcs they’ve wanted for years now, and Kul Tiras Humans will finally let you play as something other than Swolebro the Magnificent, but still be those races you’re attached to.

Do I want them to get crazier with it? I just spent a week basically begging Blizzard to put in playable fox people. I think it’s fairly clear that yes, I want them to do more with Allied Races. I still want a Worgen Allied Race that are Night Elf Worgen like this dude.

That’s right, I want giant Tauren sized Worgen with big Nelfy ears and hopefully fixed faces for the lady Worgen that don’t change back into Humans but rather into Night Elves. I want Krokul from Argus, I want Sand Gnomes, I want all sorts of crazy stuff. But I’m cool with them starting off with more reasonable options first.


Okay, I’ll be honest, I like big swords, and I cannot lie, but this is a little bit ridiculous

Well, you’re right, they are really big. But that’s kind of my thing.

But Raz, those aren’t even the worst ones you can get. Not by a long shot. Of course Ashkandi is longer and wider than those, but I think the winner for sheer ridiculously huge swords is Armageddon. That thing is still just crazy huge.

Other massive swords include the Warlords of Draenor challenge weapon 2h sword, which I’m pretty sure the Fury Artifact takes some cues from visually, and the Lionheart Executioner isn’t as long but is crazy wide. And it’s pretty awesome, I love my big lion sword with my cat armor.

I guess I don’t really have a point here aside from BIG SWORDS YAY so uh, yeah, those are big swords, Raz.

I could seriously just do pictures of various characters of mine with big swords all freaking day. That could just be the entire Queue.

Or heck, polearms too. I love polearms. I like the Ulduar polearm models because they look like I took a one handed sword and stuck it on the end of a big stick.

And yeah, you really can’t talk about huge weapons without talking about Hellreaver, one of the best models they’ve ever made, with as much handle as it has blade it’s probably even bigger than Armageddon in terms of pure length, if you could put both next to each other point down on the ground.

None of this is a question any of y’all asked, so we’ll get back to that now.



What is the earliest level you can start questing in Cataclysm/Pandaria?
I’m currently 77 and have done about 15% of Storm Peaks and I have this nagging feeling that the game is going to make me choose between Icecrown or doing an Outland zone – neither of which I am very keen on doing.

Man, I loved going back to Outland and I’m honestly wondering if I can just stay on Outland until 80. I suspect not, but I would if I could.

But yes, Cataclysm/Mists starts at level 80. I suspect you won’t be able to get to 80 in the Storm Peaks if you’re at 77 with only 85% of the place left. Maybe run some dungeons?


Nobody’s asked the important question yet: What do you think will be the next Steamy Romance Novel?

A Steamy Romance Novel: Outfoxed?
A Steamy Romance Novel: Void Where Prohibited?
A Steamy Romance Novel: Playing the Scales?
A Steamy Romance Novel: Dino-might?

  • A Steamy Romance Novel: The Power of Beard compels you!
  • A Steamy Romance Novel: The Naked Tank
  • A Steamy Romance Novel: When a Mage loves a Warlock
  • A Steamy Romance Novel: My Knaifu, My Destiny
  • A Steamy Romance Novel: Zandalari Dusk
  • A Steamy Romance Novel: Hard as Dark Iron
  • A Steamy Romance Novel: Let’s kiss and stuff

Okay, I ran out of steam at the end there. Hah! Steam! I didn’t even mean to do that.

Okay, that’s the Queue for this Friday.

See y’all next week.
