The Queue: The good old Monday faceplant

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 can’t believe it took me this long to discover that stunning a giant snake causes it to do some kind of weird paralyzed plank. Sapping it is entertaining enough, but what’s even better is throwing a bunch of stuns in with your regular rotation — it’s like witnessing a round of armless pushups on fast forward. Odd serpentine antics aside, it’s Monday — which means we should probably get around to answering your questions!


The Queue: Winter skies

How much time have you spent looking up? I’m continually baffled by just how amazing the skies are in Battle for Azeroth. This shot taken in the wintry area of Drustvar looks almost identical to the skies out here on a snowy day. Basically, clouds are great, hats off to the environmental design crew at Blizzard, and let’s get to your questions!


The Queue: Gone fishin’

Although I don’t exactly begrudge a loa some good old fashioned recreational sport, I do have to wonder what exactly ol’ Bwonsamdi expects to catch in that little creek, and more importantly, what he’s going to do with it. While these will remain mysteries, I can’t imagine a more suitable fishing pole for the loa of death, can you?

The above image is a pictorial representation of skipping in to do the Queue and realizing what exactly last Friday’s author left me to work with. Thanks, Mitch.

Regardless, we’ve still got a few questions to answer and some things to chat about, so let’s get to that, shall we?


The Queue: Let’s do lunch

Hey guys, how’s it going? Pull up a chair, grab a hunk off the old steak pile. Or, you know, have a leg of an arbitrary birdlike…creature. No? Perhaps a plate of crab-ish thing? I’ll chop ya a slice soon as I dig this hatchet out of the table here–

–oh, okay. Yeah, yeah I guess the fruit’s probably safe. Knock yourselves out.


The Queue: Smitten

You know, I wondered why goblins had crazy flamingo cutouts and other strange oddities strewn about their campsites, but it turns out they have a purpose. That penguin isn’t going to be getting underfoot anytime soon, is it? Given my penchant for flamingo-collecting in Animal Crossing, I can’t blame the little guy for his infatuation, but I feel a little bad for what’s inevitably going to happen once we move on to another expansion. Whichever Goblin is tasked with putting that flamingo away is going to get a face-full of angry amorous penguin wrath. I sort of wish we’d get to see it.

You know what I love? Answering your questions. Let’s get to that!


The Queue: Can I just…have a boat?

This expansion has given us some of the most lovingly-crafted, well designed ships I’ve ever seen. They’re a far cry from the stale and mostly-empty pirate vessels that litter the coasts, you know? Forget the fancy mounts, the pretty horses and cool raptors and frogs. I’d like a boat, please. I mean…if we can’t have player housing, can I just have a ship to call my own? Maybe? Seriously, look at that thing. It’s gorgeous.

And now, let’s look at your questions, and then answer them!

2018 is drawing to a close, and frankly I’m all right with leaving it all behind. But as you count down the minutes to 2019, keep this in mind: Thirty years have passed on alternate Draenor since we defeated Archimonde and saved everyone, and Lantresor is still carrying around a mining pick. I guess he learned to appreciate his garrison assignment?

Regardless, let’s wrap up the year and answer your questions, because that’s what we do here!

First off, it’s nice to see Jaina and her mother just having an idle conversation in Boralus. I wasn’t really expecting the idle conversation I happened to stumble across. But far more importantly — hey Katherine, I like libraries too. Actually I’d love to just, you know, take a look around the Proudmoore estate in general. I bet it’s really neat in there! …seriously it’s a giant building smack in the middle of the capital city, it’d be cool if you’d open the doors, you know?

Let’s get to your questions.
