The Queue: A long time ago, in a video game far, far away

Adam Holisky

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 (@adamholisky) will be your host today.

Be sure to ask some WoW related questions in the Queue so we can answer them the next day. We love to answer stuff that's not about WoW too, but we try to limit those answers to just one each Queue.

Akmagrath asked:

Q4tQ: I saw a lot of comments on CRZ referring to players from other realms intruding on the commenter's realm. How does one know that they are not the intruder? In other words, can I know what realm I am in during CRZ?

That's a good question. First, I think people have a tendency to blame everyone else, and in doing so they immediately assume everyone that's around them is walking on their soil. Get yard, 'zeroth, etc etc...

Secondly, there's no really good way to tell if you've crossed over to another server or not. As Corey mentions in the comments, you can check your clock to see if it's changed -- I've heard that a few times, but it's not something I've been able to verify myself.

Finally, I think the question itself is a moot point. The entire mechanic of cross realm zones is to combine multiple servers, in a logical grouping, into a single zone instance. Whatever server you're on doesn't change the grouping, nor does it change the players you're grouped with cross realm. You are all in the void together. The matrix has you, and the architect is Ghostcrawler (I'm the Merovingian, by the way).

Ron asked:

At the end of Cataclysm, the Aspects sacrifice their power to take out Deathwing. In 'Tides', Kalecgos notes that his power has faded a bit now that he's no longer an Aspect. Does this apply to the rest of the dragons as well? I believe they're all mortal now, but will their powers fade over time until they're just like the "lesser races"?

They're just regular dragons that can shift into human form. They're no longer god like beings that can control the very aspects of space and time. I honestly hope that their story is done for the most part, they've done their part with Deathwing, now it's time for new actors to take up the torch of the catalyst in Azeroth.

Jeff asked:

What did you guys pass out for Halloween and who has leftovers? Pass them this way ;)

Apartment living doesn't lead to trick-or-treaters, unfortunately. So instead Katie and I enjoyed the caramel apples and Halloween cupcake pictured above. It was scrumtrulescent.

You all said:

Zomg ethereals and star peace.

And that was really what the Queue's comments were about yesterday. I'll just say: ethereal dance studio, and be done with everything.
