The Queue: The other side of Azeroth
I always find it interesting when Blizzard implements views of Azeroth like the one above. It’s been tossed around several times in the past, but including those globes in Ulduar was a regret of Blizz’s. So the fact that they’ve done something like this in both Argus and the new raid (albeit with clouds covering the most interesting portions) is interesting to me.
Anyhow, enough of that. It’s Queue time.
Q4tMitch: can you answer a queue question, but replace every noun with ‘Mitch’?
Q4tQ:what happens if Mitch is allowed to add more ‘M’s to his name?
To your first question: Sure!
To your second Mitch: It depends where Mitch wants Mitch to add the additional Mitch. Mitch could end up looking like Mmmmitch or Mitch could end up looking like Mitchmmmm or Mitch could even end up looking like Mimtchm.
Ok so now that all content in BfA is more or less available and you can get a decent overlook of the whole thing, how would you rank it compared to the other expansions from best to worst?
For me it’s: Mists of Pandaria > Legion > Wrath of the Lich King > The Burning Crusade > Vanilla > Battle for Azeroth > Cataclysm > Warlords of Draenor
Overall it wasn’t one of the great ones, but still not the worst.
I was talking about this the other day with some friends, and the big point that I made was how there’s a big difference between what my favorite expansion is and what I think is objectively the best. For instance, Wrath is probably my favorite, but I feel Mists is a better expansion. Anyhow, here’s my list…
Wrath > Vanilla > Mists >= Legion > Burning Crusade > Warlords >= BFA > Cataclysm
Actually, y’know what? Looking at that, it still doesn’t feel right. It’s probably somewhat close to how I feel, but there are a lot of reasons I can give myself to put one expansion somewhere else on the list. Basically, don’t take it as my final word on the subject. Each expansion has had a lot to like about it, and those parts have informed what came next. Plus, nostalgia plays a huge role, as does my bad memory.
Monks are the only class that sheathes their weapon on their backs, right?
While that’s mostly true, there are a couple weapons in the game that any class will sheathe on their back. Thanks to the new transmog rules, my Demon Hunter is using dual Thunderfuries, which cross her back in an X shape, and it’s totally awesome.
I don’t know off the top of my head which other weapons do that, but I’m sure the commenters can help you out there!

Q4TQ: What’s the fastest you leveled an allied race for the heritage armor?
Well, I think I made it to 76 on a Void Elf shortly after they came out. Then I stopped, because I didn’t want to keep leveling. Alts really aren’t my thing, especially ones that have to start from scratch. Plus, I main Horde, so it’s not like I’d get a ton of mileage out of the Heritage Armor.
Question: Does a Dwarf made entirely of Diamond, one of if not the hardest substance on earth (who knows about Azeroth), really need the neck protection provided by those huge pauldrons? Those wouldn’t really be a part of Magni himself.
Well, Magni froze completely when he was turned into diamond (or whatever it is), and that includes his armor. It’s like if I dumped a ton of cold water on you and then immediately chucked you outside in sub-zero temperatures. Your clothes would freeze along with you; it’s not like they’d be completely divorced from the freezing process.
Also, you have to think of the implications of what you’re suggesting here. If Magni doesn’t need those pauldrons, doesn’t that mean he needs no armor at all? Do you really want a rock-hard, naked Dwarf yelling about woons and being the Speaker for the planet?
…You do? Yeah, okay, that would be kind of hilarious.
Q4tQ Have you rolled a Vulpera yet? If so, post your pics!
I have not. As mentioned above, alts — especially now knowing the level squish is coming — are really not my thing. Heck, I haven’t even done the quest to unlock them yet. But you’re welcome to all post your cute Vulpera pics!
THE NEXT QUESTION CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE END OF THE NY’ALOTHA RAID. SKIP TO THE COMMENTS IF YOU WANT TO AVOID IT.
Q4tQ: What was N’Zoth’s plan for us players? We have been told for several expansions now how dangerous his mind is, how despite being the weakest of the Old Gods he has ensured his survival while all the others fell, how is schemes contain schemes within them. Yet there seems to be a mountain of stuff he overlooked (Xal’atath, Wrathion, the Heart of Azeroth), there was no cleverly laid trap or plot twist, there was just us resisting his corruption and disintegrating him with our Titan laser.
How the story was told is a whole separate issue, but to answer your base question, I think N’Zoth simply wanted to control Azeroth in any way possible. Did he want to control us so we were on his side? Sure. Did he want to get us out of the way? Also sure! Did he want us to kill each other like in the Uldum bombing run. Sure sure!
Also keep in mind he and Azshara DID use us to free him at the end of the Palace raid. If nothing else, N’Zoth wanted to use us for that. My guess is he assumed Azshara would kill us or that we just wouldn’t be a threat after that.
The Queue… IS DONE! For today anyhow. Tune in tomorrow where Liz will answer your questions, assuming you ask some. (Please ask some.)
