The Queue: Cosmo-tology

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!

Is it just me, or does anyone else sometimes find themselves getting “cosmology” mixed up with “cosmetology,” even though the two are very, very different things? Unrelated (but very much related), I wonder what a World of Warcraft eyeshadow palette would look like. I’d want to see at least one blue shade with some kind of punched up silver glitter effect just to reflect Algalon and the Titans, you know? Maybe some earth tones — obviously a red for Horde, a Blue for Alliance, maybe a green for the Emerald Dream. Heck, you could have two different faction palettes and a cosmos palette.

…anyone want to get Colorpop in on this? Anyone? No? Just me? Okay, let’s get to your questions instead.

Raise your hands if you saw the above image and immediately had “Suffer, mortals, as your pathetic magic beTraAaaAayYss YOU” play in your head. No? Just me then? Well now you have it in your head, you’re welcome. Let’s get to your questions!

Is Nozdormu in the Shadowlands? I mean, technically he’s still alive, but we killed him at some point in the future, but that hasn’t happened yet, except that it has, except for the timelines that it hasn’t, including the one in which we’re currently residing. So maybe not. Maybe so? My head hurts.

I think I’m beginning to understand why so many people were after Chromie. It wasn’t because she’d done anything, they were just trying to rid themselves of the bronze-colored migraines they’d been plagued with. Right, on to your questions!

Realistically, I know we’ve got some time to wait before 8.3. But guys, I’m dying to go to Ny’alotha. I’ve been wanting to go there for a very, very long time now. And it’s right over there, just on the horizon, which makes the waiting even worse. Can we go already? Please? No? Okay, we’ll settle for answering your questions.

Do you think Azuregos knew about the whole Shadowlands thing when he fell in love with a spirit healer? Like did he know where she came from, did she tell him stories about the Shadowlands and what went on there? Do you think we’ll find him somewhere in the next expansion hanging out with her, maybe even having actually taken some kind of mortal-looking form? I wouldn’t mind seeing our blue dragon buddy again, you know? But enough of my questions — let’s get to yours!

It’s Monday. More importantly, it’s the Monday after BlizzCon, where we were promptly deluged with enough information that we’ll likely be spending the next several months entrenched in it all and trying to unravel it. I don’t know about you all but if anyone wakes me before my alarm in the next week or so I’m probably going to channel my inner banshee. But hey. I know why you’re here. You’ve got questions, and I probably have at least some answers for you. So let’s get to that, shall we?
