The Queue: Anybody know what this is?

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.

It looks like some kind of ... baby ... dog? No idea.

Krastanof asked:

Could the Timeless Isle quest line be hinting at the next expansion being about time-travel and preventing the creation of the Infinite Dragonflight? Then "Heroes of the Storm" may make a lot of sense (if it's, of course, not a hoax again).

I'm not sure how "Heroes of the Storm" sounds like it has anything to do with time travel, but anything's possible. Consider that whatever name we get for the next expansion is going to be pretty clear-cut and descriptive.

AleksQamar asked:

Big lore question: At the end of the first ing of SoO, Gorehol just lies abandoned in Pride's room. However, Garrosh is using Xalaoth (corrupted Gorehowl) while fighting with him. Care to explain hat happened there (ive just played wings 1 and 2 of soo)

Well, the item name is "Xala'toh, Corrupted Image of Gorehowl", not "Corrupted Gorehowl". Who knows if it's actually Gorehowl under there or a sha-constructed facsimile.

HemttTanker asked:

Which will happen first, the server merges or hearthstone opening to the public?

Connected realms are actually already active, though only a few of them, so ... probably the connected realms?

JoshMcGee asked:

If I order the Blizzcon virtual pass, when will I receive the Murloc Crusader? Will it be on the day Blizzcon starts, or can I get it earlier?

Normally you get the key shortly after the convention (if I remember correctly). A few weeks or so. It also depends on when the patch that adds the pet goes live. 5.5?

Derrekk asked:

Who exactly is Teron Gorefiend- I only know a little of him- and what was he doing helping Illidan in the Black Temple?

The short answer is that Gorefiend was one of the first death knights -- the original orcish variety, not the player kind -- and you can see why he's helping Illidan by doing his questline in Shadowmoon Valley.
