The Queue: My hands are full


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

You know what WoW is missing?

Finger movements. I want to see them fing.

IicyJay asked:

Anyone have any idea what BlizzCon tickets will go for on eBay?

I know you asked this yesterday in anticipation of not being able to grab them last night, but I wanted to chime in here as someone with a lot of BlizzCons under his belt and hearing a lot from Blizzard folks about this.

Don't do it.

People are scammed constantly over these tickets. The tickets might be fake, they might not be sent out at all, the seller might not understand he has to put the ticket in your name or be there in person, etc. There are so many points of failure and so many ways for you to get royally screwed. If you do get screwed, Blizzard isn't going to be able to do anything about it. Their people will be as heartbroken as you are, but they can't fix it.

Think of it this way, too: If you get a $175 ticket, you're going to end up spending another $600 to $1,000 on the flight, hotel, and food. Do you really want to bet that $1,000 on a stranger's integrity? I sure don't.

The best way to get tickets is to connect with people who are going, get to know them for a while (guildmates), and then get everyone to enter the ticket queue to buy tickets. Twitter can also be a great place to find tickets, as some community members get extra tickets occasionally and offer them up. (I realize that community people on Twitter are still strangers, but they've built up their reputation in a big way over the years, and 99.99% would never do anything to harm it.)

So, please, think twice before you buy off eBay.

Vyle asked:

Speaking of 80's cartoons, Transformers or Thundercats?

I was going to say Thundercats and Cheetara, but then I remember Duck Tales. And life was good again. (Pro tip: Don't Google Cheetara while at work.)

Walker space asked:

I've seen children and adults but no pregnant NPCs. I don't think they exist. Prove me wrong.

Moira Bronzebeard was with child during her time in mountain.

Jaina's been packing on the pounds, too; maybe something's up.
