The Queue: ATHF Insider


Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky, senior editor at WoW Insider and webmaster of a new mobile gaming website, will be your host today.

Lots of people are asking now if we're going to do a Star Wars: The Old Republic Insider.

The answer is no. is launching Aqua Teen Hunger Force Insider tomorrow. That'll be what what we ride with for the next six years.

Daelock asked:

Affliction or destruction?

Affliction. It's what EJ says and it's what my personal experience says as well. Destro is a little more comfortable for me personally (I find it all easier to keep track of), but Aff does give you a bump in DPS. Use it, abuse it, and go DOT some face off.

Vegetto375 asked:

Is there any realition between lore and lvl's? For instance is the LK stronger then C'thun and weaker than Deathwing cause of the raids lvl or are lvl's purely for game mechanics. If sot realated how so the citizens of Azeroth determing one foe stronger/more dangerous than the other?

None. Lore/"Azeroth threat" is independent from creature levels, for the most part. For instance, Archimonde? C'Thun? Probably the baddest foes we've faced lore-wise in my opinion, but not the highest level or hardest to defeat by any means (anymore).

Chaosdefined asked:

What is the likeliness of Blizz ever properly separating PVP Talents from PVE talents?

My personal opinion is that Blizzard should do it. But Blizzard has said this is not something it's going to do. Of course, Blizzard's said that about a lot of things lately that've come true... so who knows?

Bellajtok asked:

Does Blizzard even need to preview Blizzcon at all? It seems like the fans already know everything they're going to talk about.

We, the more connected fans know all about it. But there's a large portion of the 11-some-odd million people playing who don't know about it or don't know everything they could about it. Blizzard is doing it in part for their benefit.

The other part of Blizzard's promotional pushes is to attract players outside of its games; believe it or not, there are still at least five or seven people who haven't played WoW, StarCraft, or Diablo. Blizzard's PR department's singular responsibility is to find these people and hand them the Kool-Aid.

Oh yeah!

Edymnion asked:

When is Orgrimmar (and I guess that Stormwind place too) going to be finished rebuilding? Will we finally get to see it without the cranes and scaffolding when 4.3 hits, or do we have to wait until the next expansion?

It took the Alliance five years to build a f!@#ing bridge; I doubt they're going to fix Stormwind until the next decade.

Dzdj asked:

Who is your daddy and what does he do?

Scott Holisky. He works for PBS and runs a giant tower that broadcasts TV stations, pictured above (out of Shoreview, Minn.). He can press The Button, pictured below. Generally, that'd be a bad idea.

Ilcjay2003 asked:

Is Meatwad the most awesome character ever?

Do you even have to ask? Of course he is.

Vacasta asked:

When do we get a glimpse of SWTOR Insider? Or do we use Massively for that?

We get this about every MMORPG that gets released, and the answer is still "no plans."
