The Queue: Sweet romance

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.

Dating advice in The Queue? Seriously? Yep!

@aspectofthedork as ked:

if your significant other asks you to be "romantizzle," what is an appropriate response?

"Foshizzle my sigrizzle othizzle."

Then be romantic, ya dizzle.

gamer4279 asked:

Does anyone know if Hearthstone will have any ingame relation to WoW? For example, if you get the achievement to complete Black Temple, do you get Illidans card in Hearthstone?

I would guess this would work the other way around, you might get vanity items in WoW for participation in Hearthstone. We haven't seen any confirmation either way, though.

cbeefman asked:

I dont know much about datamining, what I do know is that they compare files from existing data with patch files and spot new stuff. My question is, Do you think there is a way for Blizzard to add something completely secret? Hidden even from Data-miners? I would love for there to be some totally hidden buff you could get from surviving (for arguments sake) 10 stacks of some obscure debuff. So hidden that the buff you get has NOTHING to do with the debuff you were stacking. Eg. Stack 10 bleed effects from Mob X and you transform into a copy of Mob X

The only way they could hide something is not put it on the PTR at all, but then it would get datamined once it's live. And if they don't put it on the PTR, that means it doesn't get tested by the public, and far more likely it'll end up totally broken and potentially hosing live realms. That's no good!

Liopleurodon asked:

With the change to pools (ie, you can always catch the good stuff from pools even if you catch junk from the surrounding water) is it possible to catch Mr. Pinchy before hitting 500 skill or whatever it is?


Exogenesis3 asked:

One thing I've been curious about when it comes to pet battles- every time I get into a PvP battle, every single opponent is wearing a full tier set. Even when I'm doing a PvP battle at, say, level 20, I still get matched against someone wearing a full transmog set. At first I thought I was just being paired against transmog junkies. Does the battle system dress your character for you? Do all my characters appear in full tier sets to everyone else?

You don't get to see what your opponent actually looks like. Your opponent won't see what you look like, either. The system obfuscates your opponent so you can't identify them in any way to hunt them down later. What you see is a stock template of X class and not indicative of the real character.

@AccelSkyly asked:

do you think GC gets too much stick? Some of the tweets he gets are quite sickening....

Anyone and everyone with even the smallest bit of fame (or following) gets threats on a consistent basis, either of the life-threatening variety or the probably-more-disturbing sexual variety. It's absolutely sickening. Even more sickening is how common it actually is. For some reason, it has become acceptable behavior. Here's a tip, folks: if you're ever at your keyboard (or anywhere else in life) and you wonder to yourself if you should threaten to maim, kill, or sexually assault someone, the answer is no. I don't care how much you like or dislike a person. Do not ever do it.

@flameflash asked:

how much wood would a Garrosh-chuck chuck if a Garrosh-chuck could chuck wood?

We're waiting to find out. He's still working on Azshara, Ashenvale, and the surrounding areas.
