The Queue: High steaks

I think one of the things I’m loving the most about Battle for Azeroth right now are the little random vignettes that pop up here and there. One minute I am totally in the middle of a quest to go do something super important, the next I’m distracted by Miss Hungry Gnome and the steak that’s roughly the size of her head. She doesn’t offer anything important or anything. She’s busy. And hungry. This expansion is great so far!




The story of Lycanar, Worgen Warlock of the Alliance

In between visions of another life, he ran, rough paws deftly avoiding branch and vine. The forests might have been treacherous to some, but not to him. A guttural snarl caught deep in his throat – he could smell them, his pursuers. Not even the musk they used to cover their scent could obscure the sour metallic whiff of gunpowder. The others ran on ahead, one taking a sharp turn to the left and ducking towards the river – and then the deafening sound of gunfire rang out, followed by a sharp yelp.


The Queue: The prettiest of ponies

Look I know we’re in the middle of war and everything but can we just…take a step back for a minute and acknowledge the sheer gorgeousness of Anduin’s horse? According to Christie Golden, said beautiful pretty pony’s name is Reverence, which is a suitably majestic name for such a majestic steed. I mean, look at those lovely braids and sweet soulful eyes. All that fancy, shiny, ornate armor.

I guess what I’m trying to say here is Anduin, hand over the horse. I need it. That new mount achievement isn’t going to earn itself, you know.
