The Queue: All about Mom

It was Mother’s Day yesterday, I hope you remembered to get Lillith something nice! After all, she is the mother to all of Sanctuary and doesn’t get the recognition that she deserves most of the time.

I was going to get her a nice box of chocolates, but then I thought up something much better — a brand new cloak made of the living skin from a trio of sacrifices! Just what every Mom deserves on their special day.

While I try and figure out if this cloak is dry clean only, it’s time for — The Queue!


KALCHEUS IF YOU WAKE UP AND DON’T WANNA SMILE IF IT TAKES JUST A LITTLE WHILE

Q4tQ Do you think there will be WoW downtime on Thursday before ReMists goes live?

I bet that we’re gonna see a smoother launch for it. Like being online when an expansion launches! Those always… usually… mostly… go ok now.

There shouldn’t be any need to pull servers down for the launch right? I’d bet that the main body of the Pandaria Remix has probably already has been patched into the game with the 10.2.7 content and the Dark Heart storyline. This is just turning on a part of the game that wasn’t there before — why kick everyone out of your house just to turn on a light switch?


OPEN YOUR EYES AND LOOK AT THE MUSEDMOOSE, YOU’LL SEE THINGS IN A DIFFERENT WAY

Q4tQ: how seriously do you take your character’s in-game appearance? I started wondering about this because I think we’ve all known someone (or are someone) whose WoW transmog is always kind of silly no matter what they’re doing. I rarely did silly outfits myself, but I know some people live in them.

Also because I’ve been playing Cyberpunk 2077 and I know that, despite the game having a bunch of cool clothes, doing everything in a neon green tanktop bodysuit and a pair of booty shorts is also an option.

This may surprise you, but I’m not generally a very serious person! I’ll wear the Yeti Onesie or Love Witch while I’m standing between my raid and their certain doom. Sometimes you just gotta be comfortable and that might involve a nice pink bow!

I love that we’ve gotten more options that aren’t as serious and can be transmogged. I still remember back when we couldn’t even consider doing something like using the rolling pin or fish dagger/mace models for transmog — much to a lot of players’ displeasure. World of Warcraft is a silly game at times, and we should get to be silly along with it!

Of course, all of this is often moot, because I spend most of my time looking like a bear. I still transmog, I just have a button that covers up the silliness sometimes.

Just know though that the day I can tank as a Duck and quack with every ability, I will!


DON’T STOP THINKING ABOUT PLUNDERLORD ROXXII, DON’T STOP, HE’LL SOON BE HERE

Do you still need the cloak equipped to solo N’zoth?

Nope! In a series of hotfixes this week Blizzard has changed the last fights in Battle for Azeroth raids to be solo-friendly! No more needing a group of ten people to kill Mythic G’huun! No more Jaina freezing you shenanigans! No more N’zoth just obliterating you for not wearing your cloak, or making you crazy in the other parts of the fight!

Now you can finally add those raids into your rotation while you try and get the Jaina’s Water Elemental or N’zoth eyeball squid thing mounts!


ARTHONOS WHY NOT THINK ABOUT TIMES TO COME AND NOT ABOUT THE THINGS THAT YOU’VE DONE?

Q4tQ: How many tickles does it take to get an Old God to laugh?
Answer: ten-tickles

8/8 joke, no notes.


CAPTAIN CAKEWALK, TECH KITTY ALL I WANT IS TO SEE YOU SMILE

Q4tQ: If you had the option to change the look of a race in WoW, who would you choose and why? This question just popped into my head, so I’m not sure I have an answer, but I like the idea of the question

I’d love to see the original lady Troll option where they had the big hunch like the male Trolls did. It looks very goofy, and there’s no reason why they should have straight spines if they guys don’t!

I’d also accept Darkspear Trolls getting to stand up straight as a compromise.

Today’s Bacardi is giving you a very stern look. He almost looks like he’s telling you that you should be anywhere else instead of on the couch next to him. You should probably get up and take care of that thing you’ve been putting off if you want a good selection of loot in your Great Vault!

Today’s Anna Earworm™: Don’t Stop

Have a fun week everyone! Don’t forget that even though Mother’s Day is over, you can still make Anna’s day better by asking lots of questions!
