The Queue: Two milkmen go comedy

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.

I just finished Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward on my Vita (it was free on PS+) and holy moley! What a great game! I've really been digging on the visual novel style lately and this one has a really cool story that unfolds in ways I wasn't anticipating. Highly highly recommended.

dshiryu asked:

Any chance of seeing Demon Hunters as that rumored new playable class?

I'm not sure there's really a "rumor" about a new playable class; it's just something some players want with no solid evidence to back it up. But: unless the fundamental idea of a demon hunter changes, we won't see it as a playable class. Nearly all of their abilities and "kit" have been given to warlocks (or DKs, or rogues, etc). We're not talking "well, DKs had Death Coil originally, and they gave it to warlocks, and DKs did just fine...". We're talking everything demon-huntery except dual-wielding glaives has been given to warlocks. It's probably time to give up that ghost.

ScottLeyes asked:

Which do you prefer: A Pinch of Salt or a Grain of Salt?

I had literally never heard the term "pinch of salt" used (with regard to not taking something at face value) until it was uttered by one of my weirdo coworkers here at WoW Insider. I've always said and heard "grain".

LarGand asked:

wouldn't VR work better if 1 high pop server were "combined" with a couple low pop servers, or even 1 to 1?

Among battlegroups (which is the prevailing theory for what's gonna get VRed) there's a pretty even distribution of high-, medium-, and low-pop realms. In the end it'll probably all even out.

jon10 asked:

I'm in a strange mood today so i'm going to ask a silly question to go with the silly comment i just posted. Why is there an "unlike" button for the comments? If i like it, i like it. I can't think of any other reason why i would change my mind except some personal beef with the poster and i'll get over that. Yes i suppose i could accidentally misclick a post but hey i would let it slide if i did doesn't kill me to show someone some support if i did. Yes before you ask i know it's a silly question =) but don't ever act like you never spaced out in front of your computer and found yourself pondering something silly for no apparent reason.

Probably to be able to save face if you accidentally click on a comment that's horribly offensive or racist or whatever. You can do it on Facebook and Twitter and other social media stuff already.

BaronoftheLake asked:

Lore question: If you were to have Garrosh kill one (and only one) lore figure from the Pandarian story to truly cement his villainous evil, who would it be?


Justinb911 asked:

Who would win a fistfight, Sacco's hair or Rossi's beard?

My hair's pretty short nowadays -- it's still shiny and great and everything, but considerably less...I dunno, "epic" than before. However: Rossi also shaved his beard. So both of us are depowered. It would be a pretty boring fight.

Aubrey asked:

Are there any races that canonically cannot interbreed? Probably barring the obvious Forsaken. And are Worgen/Gilnean children cursed at birth, or are they free unless bitten themselves?

Unsurprisingly, Blizzard hasn't taken a lot of time to write up detailed interbreeding scenarios for each race. We know many can interbreed. But that's pretty much it, and likely all there'll ever be. That kind of stuff is...well, it invites a...particular kind of fan.
