The Queue: Hu-Man dwarf haters club

Alex Ziebart

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.

If you haven't seen the movie represented above, go do it. Right now.

Okay, no, you can wait until after you've read The Queue. Then go watch it.

sammyboy4 asked:

Will we ever see a second BlizzCon in Europe? It seems that people living in Europe or other areas have a long way to travel to get to BlizzCon in the States and it costs a good amount of money to get there.

Europe, along with South Korea, was getting Worldwide Invitationals for awhile some years back, but Blizzard consolidated the WWI into BlizzCon. There were rumblings as recently as last year about the Worldwide Invitational making a comeback, but those rumors have died off. Whether that's because people learned to shut their yaps or because it wasn't true, who knows?

We don't know if we'll ever see another event in Europe, but chances aren't looking good nowadays.

Mal asked:

How can I convince people who want to start tanking that making a death knight for their first tank is a terrible idea?

You don't, because it's not. There's absolutely nothing wrong with making a death knight tank, and you shouldn't be discouraging people from playing what they want.

mlvarden asked:

Exactly why is Muradin such a complete lickspittle to Varian? I know Varian is the exalted high poobah of the Alliance, but doesn't Muradin have any dwarfish pride at all?

I'm glad Muradin decided to defer to Varian, because dwarven pride is the stupid sort of pride that gets everybody killed. Just look at ... everything dwarves have ever done. Sure, everybody likes to bash the night elves for blowing up the world, but come on. Dwarves. They are just the worst. How many old gods has Brann Bronzebeard released now on account of dwarven pride? Seven? Eight?

I much prefer that they keep their mouths shut and do what humanity tells them to do. Now we just need to get them to start shaving those awful beards.

Scooter asked:

Skynet goes live today. How do I protect myself from the machines and inevitable doom that will occur on Thursday?

Lay down your weapons and accept the sovereignty of our new robot overlords.

So fixing your comment section has been announced as Soon(tm). What about the search function?

Whoa, whoa, whoa! One step at a time! Let's not get crazy now!

In all seriousness, you can use Google to find things specifically on our site easily, and that's what I do personally. Just preface your search with "" as one clump of letters with no spaces, and your search will only include WoW Insider results. It's pretty hard to top Google.
