The Queue: Be a man

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.

Man, isn't Li Shang just dreamy?

Tavirenel asked:

How come Jaina didn't teleport the citizens out of Theramore? I know she's done massive group teleportation in the past, so I'm not sure why she couldn't have done it before the bomb dropped.

The bomb interfered with teleportation, as stated in the book. Also, she didn't know the Horde was dropping a bomb. She just thought they were attacking -- until it was too late.

Corey Raynor asked:

When did Hisek the Swarmkeeper become Hisek the Dude? I was doing one of his daily quests, Infection, and when I fulfilled the objectives, the quest tracker says "Return to Hisek the Dude". I should've got a screenshot, but it was just... weird...

I assume that quest objectives aren't procedurally generated; at some point in the quest design process, the NPC probably didn't have a title so they just put in "the Dude" and forgot to fix it later.

Arrohon asked:

When a patch is released, most of the changes are server-side. What exactly are we downloading when a new patch comes out?

There are a lot of adjustments that have to be made both server-side and client-side in order to function (that's why Blizzard can't hotfix everything). The majority of data you're downloading in each patch is art assets, though. Those take up the most space.

Matthew2 asked:

How did you learn about the fate of the Valkyr? I'd like to read that / learn more about it myself too!

Check out the Sylvanas leader short story on the official website for some of it. For more, do the Silverpine Forest quests Horde-side. For the rest, do the Alliance quests in Andorhal.

RikOsborne asked:

If the Blizzard devs had put in more effort and applied themselves more diligently, do you think they could have made the virmen even more annoying?

I love it. I love this question.
