The Queue: Flop

Michael Sacco

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

A long weekend of either sleeping on my lap while I play Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or directly preventing me from doing so by stepping on my fightstick has simply exhausted Little-Little.

Haimdall asked:

We know that humans are descendants of the Vrykul, and that the only reason that they're still around are because some babies were sent off to the Eastern Kingdoms as to avoid the whole mass killing of children thing. What I'd like to know, is: who took care of these tiny children? Someone must have, especially if they were weaker and smaller than your average Vrykul. Who manned the boats? More importantly, why is there no evidence of this history in the Eastern Kingdoms?

It's reasonable to assume that there were some vrykul that stayed with the young humans who fled Northrend. If your question is why hasn't anyone found evidence of vrykul living in the Eastern Kingdoms, well, bear in mind that humans are pretty terrible at recording their own history -- to the point that they didn't even know they were descended from vrykul until just now. It honestly just doesn't seem like humans are much concerned about their far-flung history. That's more of a dwarf thing. Humans are firmly rooted in the present.

BitsM asked:

What happened to the world dragons after the Cataclysm?

Lethon and Emeriss are dead in canon, killed by adventurers pre-Cataclysm. Ysondre and Taerar are still around, though one is in slightly better condition than the other. People wanting to follow up on the Nightmare Dragons will want to go to Feralas.

Frost Wizard Zeddicus asked:

Got a question. Any chance Blizzard will ever provide the option to hide shoulder slot like they do for helm and cloak?

Not a chance. Blizzard has stated over and over that shoulder armor is an important part of WoW's aesthetic. It's also a status symbol in that it's the easiest way for someone to identify your level, progression, and class.

Radda asked:

Will they ever add the last two faction leaders to the For The Alliance/Horde requirements? I want to kill Gallywix.

I'm positive they'll be giving Gallywix and Greymane permanent homes in later patches. Gallywix's representation in-game is so nonsensical and incomplete that Blizzard simply must have something up their sleeve for him, especially given his estate in Azshara that functions as nothing right now.
