The Queue: Pay no attention to the dragon corpse

What’s that puff of ice and snow behind me, you ask? Totally not a new mount raised from the dead. I mean, that would be a terrible thing to do. Absolutely horrible. I’d never do such a thing.

…I really liked the Death Knight Class Hall campaign. It was creepy as all get out.

Legion came out on August 30, 2016. I’ve been playing it almost two years now, and I only just now noticed that all the trees in Brandensbrook are being dramatically bent by the wind. There’s even a big gust of it up there, fluttering the leaves and everything! How did I miss this? I guess I was too busy reading quest text. Whoops!

Let’s ignore my lack of observational skills and get to your questions.

Don’t worry kid, I’m sure that giant flaming worm beast won’t eat you. And hey, I’ve already got everything I need for my wardrobe, so whatever we pull out of its intestines after we kill it is all yours. Yes, yes I said we. You didn’t think I was going to let you tag along without contributing, right?

I’m the best orphan mom ever. Let’s get to your questions.

Hooray, the S.E.L.F.I.E. camera has been fixed! This means I can spend the next leg of my Nightborne’s journey curating a visual diary along with, you know, doing quests. Not everyone is happy about my decision. Luckily the satyr pictured above has been restrained, and he can’t glare me to death, although he’s certainly giving it his best shot.

But let’s take a break from this breathtaking image and answer your questions, shall we?

I think all the adventurers running through Pandaria a couple of expansions addled Lorewalker Cho’s head a little bit. I’m not sure what those shadowy figures are, but they’re definitely not the ancestors of my Nightborne. But then I suppose we’re in kind of a weird time loop anyway. Maybe it’s best just to humor him, right?

Let’s answer your questions, before Cho decides to start asking too many of his own.


The Queue: Oh no, not again

It seems like every time I get really comfortable exploring alpha, that’s when the game decides to introduce me to a staircase that isn’t actually solid, or a bit of ground that isn’t really ground at all. I don’t necessarily mind — I mean, it’s alpha, nothing really counts on alpha. At the same time, the end result is that I’m entirely too cautious and on-edge for the next several weeks until I start to relax again.

And then I get dropped in the bottomless pit beneath the earth. I mean, at this point, who needs Old Gods anyway? Let’s get to your questions.

Don’t get me wrong, Gallywix’s new model is utterly breathtaking and all. But what’s up with the blueprints on the wall behind him? Are those even blueprints? A map? Some kind of key to a hidden treasure trove? That looks like either a Night Elf building, or maybe a Pandaren building. I mean, maybe we shouldn’t read too much into the scenery and all, but I can’t really help but wonder what exactly that little note is all about, you know?

Let’s take a break from pondering, and answer some of your questions instead.


The Queue: Lying

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!

You know, I had every intention of not bothering to choose between Scryer or Aldor while leveling my Nightborne in Outland. Partially because it didn’t really matter in the long run, but mostly because I was avoiding the Dreaded Tour of Shattrath. But it turns out there are quests in Netherstorm that don’t unlock unless you’ve chosen a side — and you don’t get the completion achievement for the zone unless you complete those.

So I swallowed my pride, queued up a show on Netflix and prepared to be really bored for a lengthy period of time while I followed Khadgar’s favorite ethereal marshmallow on its crawling parade around the city. It says it won’t take long. It is lying. It takes long.

If I got more experience out of the…experience, I’d be happier about it. You know what doesn’t take long? Answering your questions. Let’s get to that.



The Queue: I saw the sign

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 think part of what I’m enjoying the most about Battle for Azeroth so far is just the variety in poses and animation. Like this gnome here, who is holding a very important sign involving something I won’t be spoiling. But he looks really important and official, doesn’t he? And I really want to know where he got those glasses, and where I can get a pair. Look, it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone by now that as far as I’m concerned, anything transmog-worthy is of immediate interest.

You know what else is interesting? Your questions. Let’s answer some of those.


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!
