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 edition of The Queue is one of mourning. My request to change WoW Insider over to Zelda Insider so I could gush about Zelda music all day long was denied. Instead, I will simply embed a YouTube video.

Elmo asked:



Is there any zone you think came out not so well in Cataclysm as far as story/quests?



Arathi Highlands. No doubt. Blizzard barely did anything with it at all. The Alliance is still living in a literal hole in the ground and there's generally nothing interesting going on. In every other old-world zone in Cataclysm, it is extremely obvious that the zones are different as soon as you walk into them. Arathi Highlands ... you walk into that zone and you wonder if Blizzard forgot it was there. It's not great. Even our guest writer who tackled a few Cataclysm zone reviews wasn't able to do anything with Arathi. There's just nothing there.

I also don't much like Hyjal, but every single one of my coworkers here at WoW Insider think I'm insane for that one. Hyjal feels like Generic Night Elf Zone #82,627. Druids and ancients and blah blah blah. It doesn't feel special in any way, just par for the course for Kalimdor. Again, everybody at WoW Insider disagrees with me about Hyjal, so I'm pretty sure every one of you will enjoy it regardless of whether I liked it or not.

McRaider asked:

How do character consume healthstones? Eating them sounds ridiculous because they're ... you know, stones.

Healthstone is just what they're called. They're more like eggs. When you need to use your healthstone, you crack it open and drizzle the sweet, sweet yolk all over yourself and let its curative properties work their slime-like magic.

Gado asked:

The first thing I'm planning on doing Dec. 7 at 12:01 a.m. PST is buy my Old Weather Flying. Where do I go to do that?

There are flight trainers in both Stormwind and Orgrimmar now, near the flight masters. They will sell you Old Weather Flying. Stormwind and Orgrimmar are going to be your primary hubs in Cataclysm, so it's actually very convenient.
