The Queue: Conclusions

Alex Ziebart

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

Alright, alright. I'll tell you guys what I had for dinner the other day. I've danced around the subject enough. The vote was 50% for KFC and 50% for Taco Bell at the end of the polling day, so I flipped a coin and ended up going KFC. Since I had so many suggestions for it, I ended up going with the Double Down. I'll be honest, it was pretty good. Your heart would die a painful death if you ate them regularly, but as a one time thing? Yeah, it was delicious. Totally worth it.

Andostre asked:

"I read in the very last Blizzard Battle Plan that Deathwing is emerging from Deepholme. What is Deepholme? Do we know how Deathwing got there?"

Deepholme is the Elemental Plane of Earth. Or at the very least, it's a part of that plane. It's more or less Deathwing's domain. Deathwing got there by simply going. After his last failed attempt to do various generically evil things, he ran to Deepholme to tend to his wounds and plan his next attack. Cataclysm is going to be that attack. He's going to burst forth out of Deepholme, shattering the walls between Azeroth and the Elemental Planes.

Andrew R. asked:

"What happened to the Echoes of War soundtrack? The site has been down for weeks now, if not months. Amazon doesn't have the collectors edition or any variation of it in stock."

I've been avoiding this question until now because I have absolutely no idea what happened to it. None at all. I figured I would answer the question today with a link to iTunes and hope it was sufficient, but I don't think it's even on iTunes anymore.

Your guess is as good as mine.

R. asked:

"Will Blizzard ever institute a Bah Humbug achievement for those of us who despise and refuse to do any of the silly 'holiday' stuff?"

I have no answer to this question, but I am somehow amused that you want an achievement for your refusal to do achievements. I don't think that's how it works.

Alanid asked:

"Does the Lich King have amnesia? He has thousands of undead soldiers that could overwhelm the players just in Icecrown but for some reason he's just like, 'Nah guys it's cool, I'm just gonna chill up here for awhile. Wait, what's Tirion Fordring and 10 to 25 nameless heroes doing here?' "

If you're never going to do the Lich King encounter, go find a video of it. Specifically, find one that lets you hear all of the dialogue. I'll spare everyone else reading this the huge chunk of spoilers, but there's a reason the Lich King hasn't just murdered you all yet.

"Alex ... you're not crit immune!"

I had no idea what you were talking about here until I remembered that I linked my warrior's armory. Yeah, I know I'm not crit immune. I blame my trinkets. I've lost Loken's defense trinket to the DPS in the group a few times, I can't get any of the others to drop, and I don't feel like spending badges on trinkets quite yet. Badge trinkets won't get me any defense, anyway.

I've picked up my shoulder enchant and a new cloak since you saw my armory though, so my defense is a bit better. Still not capped for raids, but closer.
