The Queue: This book is now canon

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.

Man, you guys need to ask more questions in Sunday's Queue! We run on fumes on Mondays.

@alvraen asked:

if you can create a novel in the Steamy Romance Novel series what would it be and why?

A tale revolving around Wrathion wherein there is no sexy to be found, but he gets an anime nosebleed during awkward conversation with a flirty barmaid.

arionnk asked:

Is there any way to buy the new 5.1 music? And if not, is there any hope that it will become available?

Nope. Most of World of Warcraft's music can't be acquired without datamining it from the game files, which is a shame. The base expansion soundtracks usually find their way to iTunes, but not music from patches. Having easier access to that stuff on-demand would be great. I'd love to stream it on Spotify, for example.

(That was a hint, Blizz.)

JeffLaBowski asked:

Anyone else notice Battletag friends last being online "43 years ago?" I was thoroughly amused by that. :p

Yeah, I've seen that recently. Robin Torres was listed that way on my Battletag list last night right after she logged off -- I assume it's some kind of null/invalid value that isn't displaying correctly.

@Xqmano asked:

Is there such a thing as New Gods? Seeing as they bother to specify that they are old

The "old god" thing has become something of a fantasy trope -- "old" is being used as a synonym for creepy. There aren't always new gods in fiction that uses the term old gods, but rather, the old things are supposed to be considered ancient and unknowable. In Warcraft's case, though, the new gods might be figures like the Titans or even the Ancients. Heck, maybe even philosophies like the Light.

@scruffyshaggy asked:

can you explain rested XP in simple terms? I just can't get it through my thick skull

You gain rested XP very slowly whenever you're logged out. You gain it more quickly by logging out in a rest area, such as inns or capital cities. When your character is rested (your XP bar will be blue instead of purple) you gain double XP from killing mobs/monsters. Quests will always give the standard amount of XP.
