The Queue: High steaks

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 one of the things I’m loving the most about Battle for Azeroth right now are the little random vignettes that pop up here and there. One minute I am totally in the middle of a quest to go do something super important, the next I’m distracted by Miss Hungry Gnome and the steak that’s roughly the size of her head. She doesn’t offer anything important or anything. She’s busy. And hungry. This expansion is great so far!


The Queue: The prettiest of ponies

Look I know we’re in the middle of war and everything but can we just…take a step back for a minute and acknowledge the sheer gorgeousness of Anduin’s horse? According to Christie Golden, said beautiful pretty pony’s name is Reverence, which is a suitably majestic name for such a majestic steed. I mean, look at those lovely braids and sweet soulful eyes. All that fancy, shiny, ornate armor.

I guess what I’m trying to say here is Anduin, hand over the horse. I need it. That new mount achievement isn’t going to earn itself, you know.

I like that Battle for Azeroth comes with emergency meditation kits. Okay, technically it’s a scroll, but if you wanted to just sit, chill, and ponder inner peace, the game has you covered. So have a seat, relax, and let’s just chat for a while, okay?


The Queue: They grow up so fast

Every time I visit Stormwind’s throne room I get a little bit weirded out that the little boy I remember from classic is now sitting on the throne. I think it’s just that it’s a visual reminder of just how long this game has been around. He’s certainly changed from the days of Generic Blonde Child Model, that’s for sure!

You know what doesn’t change? Questions — you have them, and you’d like them answered. So let’s get to that, shall we?


The Queue: Well swash my buckles

It took over 40-some-odd tries, but I finally managed to get the Outlaw Mage Tower challenge appearance just under the wire. I don’t actually play Outlaw on my Rogue — the last time I saw that spec it was called Combat and I was raiding Icecrown Citadel. But it’s easily the prettiest out of all of the Rogue weapon appearances, so I’m glad I got my hands on it, even if I had to drop a chunk of gold on flasks, elixirs, and food in the process. Thanks, Legion. If I ever get around to picking up swords again, I know what I’m using for transmog.


The Queue: Proud of you, my precious egg

My only regret with the end of this expansion is that eventually I’m going to run out of alts to use silly toys on during cinematic sequences. Let’s hope Battle for Azeroth is full of many more opportunities in which our characters can take their place in the annals of history as…an egg. Or a tree. Or a murloc. Or the rear end of a horse. Or, you know, whatever else you’ve got kicking around in the ol’ Toy Box.

You know what I’ve got kicking around? Questions from you guys. Let’s answer those, shall we?

I’m not the writer you were expecting today. But I’m the writer you deserve. It’s the Queue. Let’s do this.


The Queue: Madness takes its toll

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’s been ten years. Actually, it’s been longer than that — the Avast Ye, Admiral! achievement was added to the game on October 14, 2008, but I beat down a lot of pirates and got a hat somewhere in Burning Crusade. However, I never got around to finishing off the Insane achievement, mostly because I didn’t think I had everything required for it. Last week, I finished polishing off Exalted with Ravenholdt — because I like green bars — and as I did, Insane in the Membrane popped up.

I don’t know if I’ll ever use the title, but I appreciate the sentiment regardless. Let’s get to your questions!



The Queue: People skills

I went back to do the Dominance Offensive quest chain on an Allied Race alt and man, I still wonder what Thrall was thinking when he put this guy in charge. I mean…people skills should probably be part of the job description, you know?


The Queue: Dadghar and the dead girl

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 didn’t realize the Warlords garrison perpetually updated with Battle Pets after the expansion was over, so imagine my surprise to find Khadgar’s disembodied head and Uuna just strolling along without a care in the world. Or, well, floating along in Khadgar’s case. Either way, Dadghar and the Dead Girl sounds like an amazing title for a Saturday morning cartoon. Uuna gets into mischief, Khadgar tries to keep her out of it, but he has no corporeal body. Hijinks ensue.
