Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Alex Ziebart will be your host today.

Today's Queue is my last here on WoW Insider. You're all beautiful. The face my character makes while saluting, though? A little less beautiful.

squaredK2 asked:

what was your most rewarding moment in doing The Queue?

Back in early Mists of Pandaria, someone asked a question in the vein of whether the farm would stick around in future expansions. I speculated they might expand the concept, specifically mentioning having our own fortress or garrison. I mentioned the idea of recruiting adventurers and mercenaries and giving them varied tasks and missions. I'm not taking credit for the idea, taking credit would be absurd. If I thought it would be cool, then surely someone else could also think it was cool and come up with the idea independent of me. I just think it's awesome I took a stab at what might come next and was dead on.

WrecklessMEDIC asked:

If you could somehow go back in time and had the ability to change just 1 event in Earth's history, what would it be?

If I had the ability to do it, I'm not sure I could bring myself to do anything. Messing with time is scary. Anything you do might have enormous, unforeseen consequences. Or it might not have any meaningful impact at all. I wouldn't risk it whatsoever.

buffntuff32 asked:

Alex - if it was your character's birthday in game, what would s/he do to celebrate?

Take a day off. Find a spa or hotspring somewhere and just relax. The world is constantly in peril and she meets it head on every single day. She'd take that one day to kick back.

Unless, of course, some new danger reared its ugly head. Then it's back into the break. Danger doesn't take birthdays into consideration.

Bruin asked:

There's a quest in Eastern Kingdoms where Fiona the Female Worgen has a caravan, with a dwarf and an elf. My question is: Is this a Blood Elf or a High Elf? I really can't tell. I hope for inter-faction peace, it's a Blood elf.

Tarenar has green eyes, which makes him a blood elf! I love the odd couple dynamic that gives the paladin pals -- they're best friends despite everything.

ScottLeyes had a bit of fun:

When is the next expansion coming out?

When gryphons on Draenor fly.

Is the next expansion The Dark Below?

Only if you believe.

What will be announced at Blizzcon this year?

Everything and nothing.

Why did they nerf Paladins/Warriors/Warlocks/etc.?

Because Blizzard hates you. All of you.

Is Ghostcrawler responsible for all of WoW's problems?

Ghostcrawler is a majestic creature and you shall not sully his good mane. Name. I meant name.

Ghostcrawler doesn't have a mane.

What's the deal with Gnomes?

I know, right?

How come you guys never report on BAD Blizzard news?

All news is good news.

Why do you guys never report on the GOOD Blizzard news?

All news is bad news.

Is Khadgar actually Sargeras?

Khadgar is Keyser Soze.

Is Jaina a Dreadlord?

Jaina is also Keyser Soze.

Are Anduin and Wrathion a "Couple"?

Anything is possible when you're writing fanfiction.

Why is the game so HARD?

Because you're raiding Mythic.

Why is the game so EASY?

Because you aren't raiding Mythic.

Where are all the class columns?

One by one, we lost them in the dryer.

How much does Blizzard pay you guys?

They sent me an orc in the mail for playing their game for ten years. Does that count?

If x + y = 3, and 4 - y = 2, what is "x"?

I failed math my entire life. That's why I write for a living. That said, I think it's 1.

How now, Brown Cow?

I wish we were still playing Mists of Pandaria so I could say something about using a plow in WoW.

And, last but not least, why am I crying right now as I type this?

It's just raining in here. That's all. A little drizzle.

Thanks again for jumping Anne's car at BlizzCon, man.
