Welcome back to The Queue, WoW.com's daily Q&A column where the WoW.com team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Michael Gray will be your host today.
I'm excited to helm today's The Queue, mostly because I get to talk about Captain Placeholder. The captain is a fun bit of lore for anyone who's been playing WoW for a long time. In a time when you couldn't rely on boats to go from one place to another, Blizzard yoinked them from the game. Instead, the captain would teleport players from continent to continent. It is therefore without further ado that I now dive into the questions.
"Why has there been no talk of Captain Placeholder in Cataclysm so far?!"
Joker! How could you say such a thing? There above us is the good captain, dancing up a storm in Azshara. What's he doing there? Well, obviously, he's dancing! If you'd just returned from a hiatus, wouldn't you also cut a rug?
While Captain Placeholder is seen in the beta, it's unlikely he'll make it to the live game. After all, he's doing what he does best: being a placeholder.
There will be Cataclysm spoilers behind the cut.
