The Queue: In short

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.

Most of yesterday's questions and comments were about monks, due to Adam dedicating yesterday's edition of the Queue to ... monks! Unfortunately, I don't play one, so maybe Adam can get back to those tomorrow. Maybe. In the meantime, today's Queue is pretty short.

ScottLeyes asked:

Are you having DNS problems?

Yep, it knocked us out completely for about an hour yesterday, then some users had issues accessing the site for awhile after that while the changes rolled out. It still seems users aren't able to access us on mobile, but I'm not our tech guy(s) so I don't have the reason for it at hand. We're aware of it, though.

Also, I translated your question out of lolcat because it seemed like something people should read properly.

flashryan2314 asked:

We know the dragons and dragon aspects can take on their normal dragon forms, as well as humans, high elves, goblins, gnomes, etc. Can any dragon take on any form they want? Like....worgens, or ogres, or naga? Or even gnolls?

Most likely, yes. We haven't heard anything to the contrary. Dragons choose their standard humanoid forms based on personal preference, whatever they like/identify with. If I really wanted to, I could write a few thousand words on what that means, what kind of commentary that might provide in regards to self-identification in Azeroth, but... come on. Talking about that kind of thing in the context of fantasy dragons is a bit much, and real world commentary on such issues is a little outside my wheelhouse. Especially on a site like this one.

He asked:

If Old Gods give daily quests, what would they be?

You would be offered a quest that, upon being accepted, permanently takes control of your character. Your character will then wander the world of Azeroth as a maddened thrall (lower case thrall) to the Deep Ones. While the quest icon was blue, the quest can only be taken once and never completed.

You must reroll your character.

Hipps asked:

What are you reading right now?

Your question! Hm. You probably mean books, right? If that's the case, I've taken a break from pure fiction for awhile to read Marcus Aurelius's Meditations and Machiavelli's The Prince. I didn't plan to read two political philosophy books side-by-side, it just worked out that way. I started out reading a free translation of Meditations, but that turned out to be a brutal, brutal slog. Direct translations of Marcus's particular Latin diction circa 170 AD is rough. I dropped a few bucks on an edition of it with a little more love and care put into its translation and don't regret that decision at all.
