The Queue: By fire be unnerved

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!

Number one, I’m very excited that Deathwing has finally made it to Heroes of the Storm. Number two, can we just talk about those flame-engulfed wings? I feel like if that had come flying at me in Cataclysm, I would’ve been a little more terrified. I mean, he set the zone on fire when he did his flyby and that was terrifying enough, but if it’d been accompanied by literal beating flame that would’ve been really cool.

Or, well, not cool. Hot. You know what I mean. I know what you mean, because I’m here to answer your questions. Let’s get to that!

Overwatch really killed it on the Halloween skins this year — I can’t get over Lucio’s hair. Or…well, snakes. Snair? Whatever you call it, it’s absolutely glorious. I can’t wait to see what they pull out for the holiday skins this year, I have a feeling they’re going to be amazing. You know what else is amazing? Your questions — let’s get to answering those, shall we?


The Queue: What does the fox say?

Look, I’m just going to say it: The Vulpera have basically won the title of most adorable Allied Race, or potentially most adorable playable race altogether. But if they don’t have at least one voice line in which they just randomly utter “Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow! Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow! Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow!” or something along those lines, I’m going to be tremendously disappointed.

You know what isn’t disappointing? Your questions. Let’s get to those, shall we?


The Queue: Classic advantages

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!

One of the things I really appreciate about WoW Classic is just the fact that all these old quests that were removed in Cataclysm are suddenly back again. Some of those quests contain information that is still relevant and perfect valid even in the current expansion. I may only be playing Classic occasionally, but it’s really nice to be able to hit up those old story threads for a refresher course in the actual game, rather than tracking down all the relevant information on a website, you know? Anyway, let’s get to your questions, shall we?
