The Queue: Spider-Elf, Spider-Elf, capable of dressing herself

My Night Elf happens to have the entire Zandalar plate from classic (and the Halberd of Smiting model as well) so I dressed up in it for y’all today, minus the shoulders which I hate and which don’t go with the set at all in my humble opinion.  Some of these pieces are the Mists green pieces, but the BP, bracers and belt are all from the original set because I did all those quests back in the day.

I hope Horde players get some text that mentions it if they ground to exalted with the Zandalari while leveling in Battle for Azeroth, at the least. That would be cool.

The Queue: Queen for a day

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!

I haven’t played through Blade’s Edge in years — and I almost forgot about the quest chain where you end up Queen (or King) of the Ogres at the end. I also forgot how horrible it felt to have to then go murder your subjects for quests you haven’t finished yet. I mean yes, I know this makes me a terrible ruler, but you don’t have to spend your last breaths continually pointing it out, you know?

You know what’s a better use of breath? Answering your questions. Let’s do that instead!

The Queue: This is an honest crisis

I think Rossi hit the nail on the head this morning with his post about Vulpera. They are super precious and I desperately want to play one. And with the work Blizzard is putting into their customization options, it’s starting to seem likely they’ll be an Allied Race one day. But when? Where? How? I must know.

And when I do know, I will be faced with a conundrum: what about my equally adorable Gnomes?

Truly, it will be a crisis. (Unless they never become a playable race in which case dang is Blizzard doing a lot of work on NPC races.)

But instead of panicking about this, let’s get on to the Queue.

The Queue: This one was so obvious I don’t even need to say it…

This month’s Splatfest wanted to know what came first: the chicken or the egg. Questionable ink-color choice aside, this one’s Shifty Station — the map that is only available during a Splatfest and changes each time — had a couple areas that locked players in, forced to fight in a death enclosure. It was by far the best iteration of Shifty Station.

Let’s Queue.

The Queue: Antorus is lovely this time of year

So yeah, went along on a raid of Antorus with some friends in my main’s guild — I’m usually not awake for their raid times but I was around today so I went for it. Picked up two piece Tier, upgrade on the shoulder and ring slot and a relic slot upgrade so all in all it was worth it, plus I got to see the fights in a non-LFR way. Normal, so most of the folks there outgeared it and I was essentially being carried, but it was still fun and it made me wish I was awake that late more often.

Plus before the raid I got a polearm I’ve been trying to get since the end of Warlords of Draenor, so I’m happy all around.

It’s the Queue. Folks asked me some solid questions so I’m going to answer them now.

The Queue: I chose…poorly

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!

I spent a lot of time in Zangarmarsh leveling my Nightborne alt and trying to figure out why I was bugged. See, herb nodes are supposed to scale — meaning that in theory, you can pick any herb node, no matter where you are. This didn’t seem to be the case once I hit Outland, and I figured I had done something wrong. After many days of doing quests and wracking my brain trying to decipher what was wrong with my character, I moved on to Blade’s Edge. There, I promptly discovered I could pick everything in sight. So it turns out my character wasn’t bugged after all — I just managed to pick the one leveling zone that had bugged plant nodes.

Such is my luck. But hey, let’s answer your questions, shall we?
