The Queue: Can I just…have a boat?

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!

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.


The Queue: Your reputation precedes you

Nothing quite like jumping into a new patch and nabbing an achievement — especially when it comes with a very pretty horse as a reward for years and years of filling reputation bars. None of the NPCs seem to be terribly impressed with him, but considering just how many absolutely bonkers things people choose to ride around on, I’m not exactly surprised. I mean, once a humble fruit vendor’s seen someone trot by on a four-footed pile of screaming Draenei heads I expect it’s all downhill from there, probably.

Let’s get to your questions!


The Queue: Internet, meet a very good boy

I have a dog now. I’ve never actually been a “dog person,” but I’ve always had a soft spot for Badger — he’s one of my sister’s dogs, but he’s always wanted to be a solo house dog and he gets to be that here. He also gets to be relentlessly spoiled and I doubt he’ll object to that. He’s currently curled up right next to my chair, nose on my feet, where he will happily stay as long as I let him.

I have a feeling I’m going to be a dog person in very short order. Anyway, let’s get to your questions!


The Queue: An ethical dilemma

Is it okay to punch a corgi if he asks you to do it? What if you know it’s just an illusion, and that’s definitely not really a corgi politely requesting that you smack it silly? Would you be all right with attacking it even as it’s staring at you with those big soulful eyes and helpfully wagging its little tail as it encourages you? I spent a good ten minutes deliberating these very questions on my latest Alliance alt.

Then the goggles wore off and I punched Flynn right in the kisser. No regrets.


The Queue: How we wanted to do this

Due to recent events, nobody in my family really felt like doing anything really traditional for Thanksgiving, so my sister suggested she could bring over her “D&D stuff” and run a little one-shot for everyone. Promptly after her arrival it looked like Wizards of the Coast threw up on the dining room table and we spent a good eight hours playing a game that ended up definitely being neither little nor a one-shot. Hai Flutin the Tiefling Bard (Yes, I did that) will make her return at some point in the future, along with everyone else in the party, and nobody’s really upset about that at all.

But hey, we have questions to answer, so for now let’s get to that, shall we?
