The Queue: Proud of you, my precious egg

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!

My only regret with the end of this expansion is that eventually I’m going to run out of alts to use silly toys on during cinematic sequences. Let’s hope Battle for Azeroth is full of many more opportunities in which our characters can take their place in the annals of history as…an egg. Or a tree. Or a murloc. Or the rear end of a horse. Or, you know, whatever else you’ve got kicking around in the ol’ Toy Box.

You know what I’ve got kicking around? Questions from you guys. Let’s answer those, shall we?

The Queue: Madness takes its toll

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!

It’s been ten years. Actually, it’s been longer than that — the Avast Ye, Admiral! achievement was added to the game on October 14, 2008, but I beat down a lot of pirates and got a hat somewhere in Burning Crusade. However, I never got around to finishing off the Insane achievement, mostly because I didn’t think I had everything required for it. Last week, I finished polishing off Exalted with Ravenholdt — because I like green bars — and as I did, Insane in the Membrane popped up.

I don’t know if I’ll ever use the title, but I appreciate the sentiment regardless. Let’s get to your questions!
