The Queue: This is fine

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!

It got down to a whole 8 degrees last night (-13 °C for non-US readers), and it looks like that’s going to be the new normal for a few days. Ordinarily, the sight of an NPC nonchalantly crafting in the middle of a roaring blaze would be a cause for concern, but right now it just looks downright cozy.

Send help. And blankets.

Let’s answer some questions.


The Queue: Once more into the breach

Alpha is an interesting place where the reality of the game world only half exists. One moment you’re traversing through what looks like a perfectly solid tunnel, the next you’re falling through a wonderland of textures to your certain demise.

But hey, it makes for some crazy screenshots, so it’s not all bad, right?

While questing through Silverpine I discovered an Orc who was content to relentlessly walk into a wall, head down and heedless of my successful endeavor to help out the encampment. I don’t know if he was working off a hangover, or if there was simply some comfort to be found in the sensation of solid, cool stone applied to one’s forehead, but I feel you, mister Orc.

I’m not sure how I feel about Void Elves just yet, but man the Void is pretty, isn’t it? I mean, aside from being a desolate chunk of rocks just sort of floating in the vast nothingness of space. I think most of my time spent unlocking the Allied Race was actually just snapping a billion different screenshots of the place. Whoops!


The Queue: How to train your dragon

So I’m a dragon now. Well, my Priest is anyway, after finishing the Tarecgosa staff chain. I was slightly bummed that dragon form was not added as a mount for my Priest — you have to use the staff — but I put together a macro that will take care of things quite nicely, as long as the staff is in my bags. …I’m keeping the staff in my bags forever, because that was a really cool quest chain, guys. If you have a caster that hasn’t done the quest, I recommend giving it a shot. It’s a lot of fun!

You know what else is fun? Answering your questions!


The Queue: Khadcar

I got a new car over the weekend — well, a used car, but new to me. It’s very fancy and has a dashboard display that lets me set my own wallpaper. Khadgar is there now. He’ll live there forever…or at least until the next owner of this vehicle discovers him upon purchasing it. It’s like a terrifying, real-world mobile Wondrous Wisdomball!

…I really like this car.

I’m at that really annoying point in most legendary chains where you have to farm things for several weeks. Of course, the upside to this is that I’m basically vacuuming fire from the corpses of my slain enemies. I’m not sure if this is what the Guardians of Hyjal meant by “cleaning up the Firelands,” but I’ll take it.

I forgot that sometimes, Ragnaros has legs. You know, it’s a little weird how much less intimidating he seems when he can stand up and walk around. Blob of animate lava goo? Unnerving and a little scary. Big humanoid lava dude? Suddenly strangely comical. No idea why!




The Queue: The worst Druid

I’m pretty sure whalloping sleeping seal Druids is gonna get me kicked out of the Cenarion Circle right quick. And I doubt they’re going to take my industrious beak-clubbing technique into consideration, either. Or the fact that I felt really guilty about doing it.

I don’t know what kind of game these guys are playing in Shal’Aran, but it looks absolutely fascinating. Sort of a 3D floating chess kind of thing. Can we get this in game please? It looks like something my jewelcrafting Rogue would enjoy making, I’m just saying!
