The Queue: You ain't nothin' but a Core Hound


Welcome back to The Queue, WoW Insider's daily Q&A column where the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky will be your host today.

There's a few good questions today of various voluptuous varieties: raiding, legal ToS (TNG > ToS, by the way), and new gaming hardware. Yummy.

Start me off, Delks...

Edit: Please be sure to listen to Fly Me To The Moon by Ol' Blue Eyes during today's Queue, or you can listen to the title's name sake song.

Delks asked...

"What's the point of running old world raids and instances?"

Several, besides the obvious one of achievements. First, they offer compelling story lines that really help tie up many of the arcs that run through the stories present in the 1 through 60 game. Secondly, the dungeons are quite visually impressive if you haven't been through them a few hundred times already. It's just fun from a gameplay stance. Finally, running the old world content can still give some unique rewards that people covet, like bug mounts in AQ40 (although they're only usable in AQ40), or the tiger and raptor mounts from ZG.

George asked...

"Here's a question about the terms of use agreement that we must accept every time the game gets patched. I certainly don't bother reading it and I'm fairly certain that most others don't either, so couldn't Blizzard pull a fast one and make us agree to something we wouldn't normally agree to by hiding something in the legal fine print?"

They could sneak something crazy in, but that would be supremely evil and cause a significant backlash against their company. They won't do such a thing for that reason alone. If there was anything way out line, like the example of signing over your first born that Erik pointed out, you'd have quite a powerful argument.

In the end remember that the agreements between you and Blizzard really amount to nothing more than a fair set of rules normal and fair minded people would agree to abide by: no botting, no harassment, no hacking, etc...

Of course, I Am Not A Lawyer (iAnal), and there is fine print for a reason... See? Now I'm not culpable for anything I said. Horray! Drinks are on me. Oh wait...

Okkienookie asked...

"Any dates when the new Logitech keyboard is coming out?"

The Logitech G19 is showing up as released on the Logitech site, and you can order it for $200. It's not showing up as released on Amazon yet, and Best Buy doesn't have it in their inventory either. So it likely was just released in the past few days. I've heard rumblings that Dell had an exclusive deal with Logitech, but wasn't able to find anything on it while briefly searching.

I'll be ordering mine after I find out how many BlizzCon tickets I'm buying this weekend for people.
