The Queue: Slicing with my Splatana

Well, I had a nice intro written all about Splatoon 3, but then the website logged me out and I lost it. So now, you get this pale imitation of an intro.

…Okay, the original wasn’t all that special anyhow. But it did include a nice tie-in to our first question which I’m just gonna dive righ

The Queue: Spooky season?

I’ve always had a tendency to veer toward gothic horror and modern thrillers during the summer. Since I discovered my grocery store already started stocking pumpkin spice coffee creamer, right now it really feels like it’s almost Halloween. It’s a feeling I can really get behind. No, wait… it’s… it’s behind YOU!

This is The Queue, where you ask us questions and we definitely aren’t about to apologize. You should’ve seen your face.

The Queue: You can’t fight fate

Unless it’s your destiny to fight fate, then you can’t not fight it.

My guild bopped our way through Heroic Fated Castle Nathria this week. It was just like riding a bike! Sort of. We had some trial and error, and the new Fated affixes made a couple of the fights interesting, especially the Sun King fight. Having a thing pop out that puts shields on every enemy in the encounter really messed with some of our timings. We also ran into a situation on Sire Denathrius where the new Fated creation that needs to be interrupted spawned right as we were being pulled down into the second phase of the fight.

It didn’t come with us. Turns out it can still hit you with its cast from all the way up on the top floor.

Other than that it wasn’t too bad! I like getting to see the content again in a new way for these few months while we wait for Dragonflight to come out.

While I go polish up on our boss strategies for Sanctum of Domination, it’s time for — The Queue.

The Queue: The hero we need

While he doesn’t cut a particularly dashing figure, it’s clear that the great investigator Murloc Holmes is the hero we need right now. You think I’m joking, but I’m not. Murloc Holmes ought to be wandering around Revendreth, questioning Dredgers in mrgls and grmrgls, following footprints, and interrogating suspicious passers-by (namely us). I want to see him sit down for tea with Theotar and I want to talk him into coming to the Ember Court. I have never wanted anything to be added to WoW so badly.

Come on, Blizzard, this would be great and you know it.


The Queue: Shooting at the walls of heartache

Yes, guys, I’ve been on the Dragonflight Alpha since the Warrior talents came online, I’ve made an Arms Warrior (Horde side) and a Fury and Protection Warrior (both Alliance) for testing purposes. I’ve literally only had a few hours to mess around, and I’m working on a post about what I think. So far, I’m mixed in my response.

Anyway, this is the Queue. Today’s music is by Scandal, with Patti Smyth on vocals, the 80’s classic The WarriorBecause of course it is.

The Queue: Time flies like an arrow

Fruit flies like a banana!

I couldn’t resist.

Yesterday was my four-year anniversary with Blizzard Watch!! I can’t believe it’s been so long! I’ve almost gotten to cover three expansions of Warcraft for y’all, not to mention all of the other Blizzard games updates that have come out over that period. I look forward to getting some time off from the day job soon so I can actually get my fingers into the Dragonflight alpha, and the upcoming season four in Shadowlands.

I also need to start clearing space on a shelf somewhere for my five-year sword, which is something that I definitely am assuming that the site will provide for me…

While I check my contract again, it’s time for — The Queue.
